Hello ladies. I am coming to you from my couch, with both a tiny girl and one of my dogs sleeping on me.
We are doing better. Betty is now refusing to breastfeed, as she's decided that she prefers the more instant gratification of a bottle. I'm still pumping about 8 times a day, but still not producing enough that I don't have to supplement with formula. I was super depressed about all of that for several days, but I'm starting to forgive myself, and feel better. Her thrush is almost completely gone, she's getting bigger by the day, and her gassiness is improving. She's such an amazingly good baby. She only cries when I don't get her bottle to her fast enough, during baths, and occasionally during a diaper change.
We made our first road trip yesterday, yo attend my 18 month post-op check up, and to show her off at my office. I was a nervous wreck worrying about remembering anything we may need, but it went just fine. She's an excellent traveler, which is great news, since we'll be making the five hour trip to my hometown in about two weeks.
Our next pediatrician visit and weight check is a week from today. In betting she'll be over 6 lbs. My girl is growing to quickly!
