I think Molly has a sacral dimple, but the paediatrician didn't say anything during her check before she was discharged from hospital, so I'm not sure. Apparently it's the least serious form of spina bifida, and I hardly took my prenatal vitamins
Hi ladies, I know everyone is busy with their new babies but just wanted to pop in and say hi. How is everyone doing with their weight loss? I was up to 154 while pregnant and am now down to 127 only 8 more pounds to go. I think I'll lose about 5 when I wean which will probably be in the next couple of months since I'm exclusively pumping now. Is anyone's baby sleeping through the night? Vayda sleeps about 4 hours at a time at night, wakes up for about 20 mins to feed and then goes back to sleep for another 4 hours. She does that cycle 3 times, so I'm getting plenty of much needed sleep.
Molly's sleeping loads during the day and at night she has 2-3 feeds, so it's not too bad. I was combifeeding until a few days ago, but now I'm 100% formula feeding. She's a chubby monkey, where my other two were underweight, so I'm not used to all this feeding she's having 4oz per feed, she's wearing 0-3m at the moment, size 2 nappies.
She was a bit colicky a few weeks ago, so we switched her to comfort formula, but then she got really gassy and stank, plus the bottles were thick and gloopy, and it wasn't really helping, so we switched her back to regular formula and she seems fine again.
I haven't weighed myself in ages since my scales are broken, but hope to get to the diet in early feb when family have all gone home. My dad left today; he was here since before the birth, and my mum flies in for a week next week, and it's too chaotic to focus on healthy eating while things are upside down. I have to lose around two dress sizes though: I never lost my pregnancy weight after my first baby, so while I didn't gain much last time or this time,I still have a fair bit to lose from the first time
Vayda is in 0 to 3 month clothes as well. She was underweight when I was nursing her bc she wasn't getting enough and would only nurse on one side. So I started pumping and supplementing with 2 to 4 oz of formula and she went from 6lbs 13oz at 2 weeks to over 10lbs at her one month check up! I pump 25oz a day but she still acts hungry so she has a few oz of formula still.
Oh and I think I'm on my period I thought that didn't happen while breastfeeding.
