Weight here version 2.0


Actually 3.0 because we went through something similar with TS. You'd think we're thin or something?

I haven't been neglecting you Internet. I'm just really busy. You see BS's weight is not good. I took her to the hospital (BFing clinic) & weighed her and she's down to 5# today. That's more then a 10% loss (they start putting them back into the hospital at 10% so I'm totally stressing.) She does eat like a piggy--every 2 hours. So the lactation consultant suggested adding an ounce to every other feeding tonight & reweighing in the AM. It's going to be a long night.

Lots of other things to bitch about (outlaws have started in again) but I'm too tired & need to pee before I go feed her again. She eats every two hours, but it takes 30-40 mins to get her filled up. I know not much. But I don't get much time to do things like pee and eat and sleep, so don't feel too put out. I did choose you overing going to the bathroom. (And I included another pix to hold you over.) More later I promise.

I remember the every two hour feedings. So. Tired. Very.

But I'd do it again!!

Congratulations! I came here through the link on Antique Momy's blog.

I hope the weight thing goes well for you. I had trouble making enough milk for both my babies, so I understand the worry and stress of not seeing them gain enough weight. I hope things go smoothly and your baby becomes plump and contented.
