Faye’s 1st Month Update

9 Feb

A month and a half later I am updating! Ha! I am happy to say that she is doing okay. She breast feeds exclusively, and it’s been such a struggle for both of us. I’ve been trying to keep up with eating enough so that my supply doesn’t slow down, but in between feeding I have to choose between eating, sleeping, showering or just plain resting. It’s really difficult. I am happy at least to say her weight gain is normal and on point. She has had gas as most babies do, and we had a little scare with her jaundice. It had been going away and then all of a sudden started having constipation and when we checked at the doctors it had gone up. After a few diet changes her stomach returned to normal and the jaundice started going away again. I decided against giving her vitamin D supplements because I had read a lot about it being barbed abnormally in our bodies, and does more harm than good. I need to start taking her out in the sun soon but as soon as our cold wave is over. This is another thing that I wonder if I’m making the right decision or not. She also had an infection in her right eye, which then healed up well after dripping a few drops of breast milk in her eyes for a few days. Also opted against antibiotics. So far It’s been hard trying to keep her on a schedule, but I’m still working on it. Here are a few picture updates

    Faye is BEAUTIFUL!!! Im so happy to hear you have an easy baby (and oh-so-jealous as well!). I know this time is so hard and it sounds like you’re doing a great job and that she is thriving.
    It’s funny what you said about eating in the day – my hubby is constantly nagging me about skipping meals and I try to explain that I have to choose between holding baby, taking a nap, showering, answering emails, returning calls, blogging, etc. Toby doesnt like to sleep anywhere but in my arms, so I really dont even get a break when he’s sleeping.
    Breastfeeding really really IS a struggle. Some days it goes well and others (many!), I find myself in tears for one reason for another.
    Hang in there. I bet both our two month updates are going to be world away from one month!

      I hope that it’s gotten ALOT better for you in the past month! Oh sleeping in our arms, it’s difficult getting anything done, yet it’s still sweet bliss. Update us!

    Ahh she’s adorable!!!! Like she could be a model baby. That’s great that the breastmilk cured her eye. It didn’t work for my little guy but i think i may have had a breast infection at the time. I may try it again as the infection in his eye comes and goes. Breastfeeding is soooo hard but dont you just adore that bond?! So glad you’re getting to do that.

      It keeps coming back again, but I keep trying with her. Breast feeding really is soo hard! And that’s why we should be proud for trying our best, whether we end up succeeding or not 😊
