laxminavkar:Bad news: LO will only stop crying when I hold her
Good news: she snuggles extra close when she's upset and makes cooing noises into my chest.
I will have to remember this when she is an obnoxious teenager.
Bad news - She has been breastfeeding exclusively for over 10 days, so I no longer get to sleep through the 6:00 am feeding while DH feeds her (and he conveniently forgets that he promised to give me a break in the morning before he goes to work).
Good news - She is exclusively breastfeeding at 2+ months, which I never thought would be possible when she was in the Nicu and I was pumping constantly.
Bad news---I'm questioning whether or not I want to cloth diaper...haven't told H yet...we invested a lot of money in it...
Good news---Vi is growing like a weed! She grew 2 1/4 inches since birth and almost 2 lbs. :)
ASH:Good news She is exclusively breastfeeding at 2 months, which I never thought would be possible when she was in the Nicu and I was pumping constantly. nbsp;
Bad News: LO hasn't been cuddling with us as much lately (that is my favorite thing to do with her)
Good News: LO is up much more during the day now and she's REALLY alert when she's awake...and smiles so much! :)
Bad news: I've been feeling a lot of pressure down below and was scared of a prolapse, so I went to the doctor last Friday.
Good news: I was diagnosed with constipation. I increased my colace dose and started eating dried apricots everyday. Things seem to be moving along quite nicely, and I no longer feel the pressure.
Question: do dried apricots work for everyone? If so, how did I not know this?
Bad news: DS has been having trouble getting to sleep for naps.
Good news: I have a feeling this means he is ready to go to just one nap. This would make it a lot easier to coordinate with DD napping and eating schedule. I could get a chance to nap everyday!
November siggy challenge May '13
Good News: I'm going to a breastfeeding support group at the women's hospital today. I'm hoping for some renewed motivation and enthusiasm.
Bad news: Todd was super fussy last night.
Good news: DH took over and he told me that he felt like he really bonded him for the first time.
Bad news: I'm feeling really, really low today for a number of reasons. One of which is that our BF seems to be regressing. He was getting better and better at transferring milk but has had a major regression this week and is not getting as much which is effecting my supply (despite my pumping).
Good news: He seems to be responding to the meds I'm giving him for reflux. Haven't perfected the dosage yet but at least he's not screaming in agony the entire day. That was horrifying.
Bad news: M's belly button is infected. They put her on antibiotics, oral and topical. Labs came back three days later and the bacteria causing the infection is resistant to the meds. New round of antibiotics, oral and topical and the first warning on the meds is "Not to be used in children under two months." After consults with my peds, CHOP peds and an infectious disease doctor, this is the best option. If no improvement by Friday, she'll need IV meds.
Good news: She takes the oral meds like a champ and has not cried once when the doctors or we have had to poke and prod her belly button. So it is not causing her pain and her eating, sleeping and sweet sweet demeanor have all remained.
