Good for Maria doing so well with your Mum- how are you feeling with her giving up the milk completely?
Caitlyn is a million miles from that although last night was much better than expected - she had a lot of wind at bedtime despite not eating very much again yesterday. Her first real waking wasnt until after midnight and her feeds (though 4 of them!) were small. But this morning againt breakfast wasnt a success - I really feel we have slipped back a month or more
However I am counting my blessings as a friend as had the worst news in relation to her pregancy and Im just trying to be thankful that my beautiful girl is here, happy and healthy every thing else will get sorted in hte end
Took Caitlyn to Dr this morning after 2 boughts of diorrhea and 3 boughts of sickness. She has a mucus build up behind her ears which is causing pain and an infection - we have antibiotics but it explains many things - poor baby!
Well 2 more visits to the Dr later and we have stopped the anti-biotics (which were impossible to get into her anyway) and a different Dr diagnosed a gastroentiritus (sp?) bug.
She was really listless yesterday and was having dry nappies so we worked on just constantly coaxing fluids into her and she is much better today - still not great and still having explosive Mustard coloured poos and nasty painful wind but she hasnt been sick for over 36 hours now
We have gone back on teh bf front though as she has demanded a feed in the day for the last few days - she is still barely eating anything so she has had that and at least 2 small feeds a night. Ah well! Im trying not to worry about it too much and let her set the pace again - but tomorrow im working so she wont be able to feed off me in the day.
How is everyone else doing - is Maria still off the bf?
Caitlyn fed 4 times last night - large feeds too - whilst im really happy she is obviously on the mend and hungry (she is a different child this morning full of bounce! ) but at the same time I feel we have stepped back several months in terms of the BF as she barely ate much yesterday and obviously filled up during the night
On the plus side she hasnt had any boughts of diorrhoea for 24 hours and no sickness in 48 hours
Natsku - I totally missed the part about you having a breast infection before - how are you feeling?
We had two good nights - she woke at 3.25 and 3.45 as her first wakings respectively and seems to be completely over the bug! now its gone I feel like shit! Not the same thing but Im exhausted, headachey, backachey and sicky feeling (and def NOT pregnant!)
Hope I can feel better tomorrow
Most importantly C seems so much better, a little whiny and clingy still but a much improved appetite and no lingering diorrhoea (she had months of it last time she had a bug)
Maybe, just maybe we can move to not feeding her at night when I feel better. (maybe....)
