I don't know what to even say about this picture.... her face is hilarious to me. I don't really know what all to say about this week either - it's been full of ups and downs.
The great news is we had another check up and she's over 7lbs - I'm guessing about 7 1/2 lbs by now and her jaundice is gone! Woohoo! With such a good report from the doctor we've now started to let her sleep longer at night. She's increased her sleeping from about 2 hours to about 4 hours already.... which is wonderful - I'm only up twice a night now! On the flip side however, we're also starting to transition from bottle feeding to nursing and although she's being a champ about the whole thing - there have been tears and screaming on both of our ends.
Breastfeeding is not for the faint of heart... that's for sure. Mild Mastitis isn't either... it's a pain that is almost comparable to labor pains.
|I literally have no idea what she is doing here but I'm so glad she did it while I was taking pictures. Haha.|
|The "calm before the storm" face..... notice how red she is - it's because she's about to erupt.|
She's still a very happy and easy to please baby for the most part.... even with the occasional screaming. Haha..
She spends most of the day making cute sounds, dancing with me, wiggling, snuggling, and just looking around. Can't believe our little bug will be a month old in just a couple days! Yikes!
|Shooting her arms up in the air is a constant thing now...|
So Mommas, any of ya'll deal with painful nursing?
What helped you?
