we are trucking along, Georgie is now 5.64kg so she's put on a whole kilo since she was born. It is lucky I only bought 2 packets of newborn nappies as she grew out of them at 2 weeks 4 days!! She has crazy reflux but it doesn't seem to distress her, it just causes me a whole lot more washing, Hazel was the same so it isn't too much of a shock to the system, although when she does a puke that brings up the whole feed it is pretty freaky, the last time she did that was on Sunday night at my parents' house I got absolutely soaked to the skin and had to borrow a change of clothes down to the undies!
The feeding difficulties sound horrible, it must be such a stressful thing in an already stressful time. I'm lucky in that I didn't have any problems with breastfeeding last time and don't this time either, beyond a few days of sore nipples and discomfort for a few days when the milk comes in.
Hazel has taken to being a big sister like a duck to water, she is already saying "Georgie did it" and runs and gets a clean nappy before I even ask her to when I am changing Georgie. It is pretty cute, she comes and snuggles up to her then looks at me and says "she likes me!" wub
***Ibu*** BF babies tend to poo every nappy change for a while then at about 6 weeks or a bit later their digestive systems kick in and sometimes they don't poo for a couple of weeks! Georgie only poos every few days now (apart from the regular shart!) but I remember taking Hazel to the doctor as she hadn't pooed for ages and was told not to worry until it had been 3 weeks! (She exploded after 16 days...)
Georgie has a small tongue tie, it doesn't seem to be causing a problem except that she makes a clicking noise when feeding, it doesn't seem to be damaging me and she is certainly getting enough milk - the projectile vomiting lets me know how much!! But I might bring it up at the 6 week check next week, also she has a lump on the back of her neck, it has been there since she was born and feels a bit like a blind pimple, which I need to remember to get checked. I'm not looking forward to the 6 week vaccinations (although I do believe very strongly in vaccination!) as I hate having to hold on to the baby while they get jabbed sad although in saying that Georgie didn't make a sound for the vitamin k injection when she was born and slept through the heal prick Guthrie test, so it may not bother her at all.
Anyway, I must press on, I'm supposed to be cleaning our pigsty of a house while Hazel is at daycare, but I keep getting distracted by Huggies smile
