More success with the baby bjorn today! It's 9am and I've already vaccuumed, done the dishes, packed a bit, and scheduled a u-haul! Yay!
Also, breastfeeding is going well for us, but I feel like I feed her constantly sometimes. There are times when my boobs just feel empty, and she still wants to eat. Is this normal? I only feel like my boobs are really full if she's slept for a long time during the day, and at night. She's gained a lot of weight really quickly (she's only 17 days and has gained more than a pound from her birth weight I believe). Maybe my body is still adjusting to how much she's going to eat? Sometimes she becomes fussy, like some of you have talked about, will pull away from the breast, cry and act hungry and then not really want to eat, etc. I know she's getting enough, she's gained plenty of weight and has lots of poopy dipes...
It's almost like it's hard for her to latch on when my boobs feel empty like that, but she still acts hungry.
