Charlotte Update

Just a quick little update on Charlotte.


I think she’s drinking more.
Now, I could totally just be saying that because I want it to be true so badly.  But I swear she is gulping and swallowing so much more and much faster than she was last week.  I am pumping and taking fenugreek (a supplement that makes you smell like maple syrup.  really, truly, I smell like a maple bar) and trying everything I can to make more milk and I am going to go out on a limb here and say it is working.


I am not really pumping much in between feedings, but I think that is because she is drinking whatever “extra” milk I am pumping (which is good, because she needs that extra milk!).  I feel fuller (too much info for some, I’m sure…) and like I should nurse her more often than I did.  I am glad.

So please cross your fingers that this isn’t all just wishful thinking.  Do you know how happy I would be if we went to our appointment on Thursday (yep, it was moved to Thursday) and the scale said 14 lbs?!  I would be crazy over the moon happy.  To be honest, I will be happy if it even says 13 lbs 8 oz.  I will even take that.


Slow and steady wins the race.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your dilemma with Charlotte. I Love nursing my babies too. Connor hated nursing for some reason and at 4 months he would not nurse. It made me so sad. Anyway… I hope that your plan works. I’ll keep you and your sweet baby in my prayers. Good luck.

    Seriously, you smell like a maple bar? I don’t nurse, but can I get me some of that stuff? Holy cow, would I be popular at work if I walked around smelling like a maple bar.

    Best of luck. Good vibes for Thursday headed your way.


Tell me somethin' good.....
