Where on Earth does the time go? I can't believe we have had our sweet baby girl for a whole week! Kel (So far...knock on wood) has been such a good baby. At night she is able to self sooth so we can get some much needed sleep. She even gave us a good 4 hour stretch between feedings last night. (Okayed by her Dr. of course!)
We had some problems with breast feeding and jaundice...she wasn't getting enough to eat. Per the suggestion of her Dr I switched to pumping and now she is finally caught up on her messy diapers and her wet diapers are no longer dark concentrated urine. (Who knew a messy diaper could make a mommy so happy?) Her jaundice is going away, too. I haven't given up on b/fing yet, she'll finally try to latch instead of screaming but she still doesn't get much milk when she does. (She doesn't swallow while she nurses.) I plan on working with a lactation specialist to give it one more good try.
If you follow Russell on Facebook, you have seen the bazillion pictures that he has posted. Here are a few of my favorites!
