Well Ellie seems to be getting a bit more crabby at nights. It is crazy, two nights ago it was so easy to calm her down. Then, it is like a switch was flipped and no matter what we do, she is fussy. Such is life with babies, I suppose.
So, as an attempt to NOT go crazy, here are some successes lately:
- Made it through some bout with sore nipples. I'm still not sure why this came on all of a sudden, but it made Wednesday hell. And even when I think Ellie and I both wanted to give up, we didn't. Feeding is back to going well now.
- I'm up to a freezer breastmilk stash of 109.5 ounces! Seeing that increase steadily makes me breathe a sigh of relief.
- As of yesterday at the breastfeeding support group, Ellie is up to 8 pounds 7 ounces. I can't believe how big she's getting!
- The shower is magic. Put fussy Ellie in her bouncy seat and take a shower and she is OUT...at least for 15 minutes!
This weekend will be a big "test" with her (more about that later!) but right now, I'll focus on the positive!
