I got a little over 7 hrs of sleep last night!!!!! LO finished feeding at 10:00 and slept until 3 am, then 4:30 to 7:15 am! I woke up feeling like a new person My dr told me to feed her every 2-3 hrs during the day and at night 3-4 hours is good but if she's gaining weight normally and having enough wet/dirty diapers we can go 5-6 hrs.

I'm jealous Sigh! Glad you got some rest. I'd kill for a four hour stretch. Lo wakes up to eat about every 2 to 2.5 hours at night and last couple days he's been eating every hour. Must be a growth spurt. He's starting to smile more and interact some which is so fun though! I'm really beginning to enjoy motherhood.

How is breastfeeding going for you ladies? Is it getting better? I've started to block nurse as my supply is still crazy high and my letdown so forceful that lo chokes so I'm hoping this will help.

Yesss I was soo happy but now she has only had a few 5-10 minute naps all day and has been fussy. I finally JUST got her to sleep at 5 pm by bouncing on a yoga ball while holding her.

BF is sort of getting better here. I might have thrush though... having some burning pain and cracking... trying to fix her latch but will be calling a lactation consultant to help soon. I have a forceful letdown too and she chokes but I think my supply is low so she wants to eat after that but I don't have enough for her It makes me so sad to see her cry. When I calm her down she looks at me with those big eyes and her tongue out so I end up letting her feed but there's nothing there so she keeps pulling at my nipple and unlatching.

Hi all, still haven't got around to writing my birthing story.

It turns out our little man has benign brain tumour creating a blockage which is causing water on the brain. He will have to have an operation but trying to hold out a bit longer.

Bf is finally going well. He tends to feed for 20-45 mins. We did have to formula feed for a bit as he wasn't putting on weight. At night I use formula as he sleeps longer and he hasn't suffered from nipple confusion. we were only discharged from the midwife this week, finally back up to his birth weight.

How was ur new year n Xmas?

Hey Nicki, sorry to hear about lo having to have operation. You are in my thoughts. Hope everything is ok. Glad bfding is going well for you and lo is back up to birth weight. Good work!

My holidays were pretty much passed over as lo took the spotlight. Next year we'll be more in the spirit.

my little girl does this too. I tried waking her, but she doesn't eat good then anyway,so now I just let her sleep.

sorry nicking! I hope all goes well.
Marianne is doing great, and breastfeeding is going pretty well. we have bad days every so often. I started taking fenugreek to increase my supply and I pump regularly to. she will start at the babysitters in two weeks as I have to go back to work... I'm not looking forward to that, but she will be with family so I know she will be taken care of.
I went to the urologist yesterday to follow up on the kidney stones and stent. they told me on the phone that they would take it out in the office, so I arranged for my mom to keep the baby. We got there and had to pay the Colts just to be told that I needed surgery to get the stone, because it is too big to pass. they then changed their mind about taking the stent out. so I have to call and schedule outpatient surgery. apparently I will have to pump and dump for 24 hours after surgery, because of the anesthesia.
on top of all this my transmission went out last week and I to pay 2000 dollars to get it fixed.

hopefull i'm glad its not just us-i feel a bit abnormal when mine pretty much sleeps through.
He does take a while to settle before bedtime though constantly wanting to feed, then not really wanting it and making himself sick because he has eaten too much. OH and I have been discussing acid reflux or similar as he gets very frustrated but he doesnt have any other symptons other than the frustration and being sick.

You lucky ladies! My lo is up every two hours, sometimes three and then he's usually up for about 45 mins to an hour. Last night he wouldn't go to sleep. I rocked him to keep him from screaming from about 7 pm to 11 pm! So tired!

Nicki - so sorry to hear that. I hope you and bubs are ok

Hopeful - did they discuss using breaking the stone up with sonar (I think that's what it's called) so you can pass it? My coworker had this done and had success when she had a large stone. hope you're ok!

Cookie - We are on acid reflux watch as well. Baby has been screaming in pain because of gas and dr thinks she might have to go on zantac... we're waiting 2 weeks to see if she outgrows it. In the meantime I might try gripe water to see if that settles the gas issue.

1 month appt went well. She is now 9 lbs 8 oz so she has gained about a half a lb more than the dr said she should gain so she is caught up from her previous weight loss. I'm relieved but she constantly wants food and pulls on my nips during feedings and it hurtssss! (reflux symptom).

I took some 1 month pics (attached). Can't believe how much she's grown!
