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.
