Hi ladies! I haven't been in this thread much. Anyone doing anything fun this weekend? I can't believe how big all our babies are getting!
DH and I went shopping yesterday and got clothes at Old Navy. I got some jeans that fit now, hopefully they will be too big soon. I fed Ezra in the fitting room then DH took him while I tried on clothes. It worked out well!
What I thought was thrush is not, pedi said the white dots on the roof of his mouth are normal and will go away. Also, got a great cream compounded for the rash, and tried the nystatin cream again and his rash is SO SO much better, better than ANY improvement from the last 5+ weeks. I am so happy.
: The natural stuff just didn't cut it this time (TTO, oregano oil, GSE). I'm still working on probiotics and digestive enzymes in me, and probiotics in Ezra and will keep that up.
I plan to call my breastfeeding contact about a couple questions. Ezra must still be in a growth spurt b/c he only eats a little but eats more often. Will he get out of that eventually? He takes more from a bottle...do most babies drink more volume from a bottle? (breastmilk). He only feeds on one side now, for 4-6 min, MAYBE 10 every now and then and often cries if I lay him down to offer more. But he took some from a bottle. I know I can't force him to eat more but do I just ride it out? I'm thinking of our trip to Seattle next week (job interview!) and am wondering how we're going to handle with eating almost every hour during the day when we'll be driving places, sightseeing, having meetings, etc. He was 7 weeks on Thursday.
ETA: actually, it's more like every two hours, but sometimes every hour that he eats. sometimes his naps are short (half hour) sometimes long (1.5-2 hours).
