    Congrats Mrscletus :happydance:

    AFM: I just came in from the Doctor's and my C-section has been scheduled for Monday 3 September. I can't believe it's been booked so close after my appointment today, but I am not complaining. I can't wait, I'm going to be so wired until then.

    Very exciting Mikels!! It’s all happening for everyone so awesome!!

    AFM, we are doing well. Fighting jaundice right now- got a ‘blanket’ today so my dear boy is a glow worm. Breastfeeding is HARD, but we are making it through. Cael is a great eater a real trooper and my milk came in so we are getting somewhere. Hoping that it gets better in the next couple weeks when we get the hang of it. I am still learning as this is my first time making it this far. I am committed and more educated this time not to mention that I am older and more patient.

    Ursula, congratulations on the birth of your little girl.

    I had my little boy at that gestation and he spent 3 weeks in NICU. It was the hardest time of my life. I hope she gets out soon and you are coping ok. I’m here if you want to talk xx

    Sorry for the delay in updating ladies it's been a crazy week but I gave birth to a little boy at 39wks 2days gestation on Thursday 30th Aug weighing 7lb 6oz after a difficult 40hr labour. Came home from hospital yesterday and we are doing well, breastfeeding is a work in progress but we are getting there!

    Ok breastfeeding experts... we are 5 days in and Cael’s poop is still a darker green, should I be worried he isn’t getting enough milk?? I am thinking it should be yellow/mustardy by now right??
    Please help!

    I don't think you need to worry yet, mrscletus. You said your milk came on the other day, day 3? They don't eat very much this young and their digestive system is still slow/figuring things out again. Did the hospital give you info for a lactation consultant or motherrisk or something? If you are worried I'd call one of them.
    From baby centre's poop guide:
    Newborn poop: Transitional stool
    When your baby is 2 to 4 days old, his poop will become lighter in color – sort of an army green – and less sticky. This transitional stool is a sign that he's started digesting early breast milk or formula and that his intestinal tract is A-okay.

    Healthy breastfed poop
    If your baby is exclusively breastfed, her poop will be yellow or slightly green and have a mushy or creamy consistency. It may be runny enough to resemble diarrhea. Breastfed poop typically looks like Dijon mustard and cottage cheese mixed together and may be dotted with little seed-like flecks. Interestingly, its smell isn't half bad.

    There are many shades of normal when it comes to breastfed poop. One you might see is a greener hue, which could signify that you ate something different than you normally do. If your baby isn't experiencing any other symptoms, there's no need to worry.
