I've been reading along but too busy to post, but I'm here!
Sore nipples: My left has evened out, but my right nipple is still VERY sensitive! Sometimes I have to remind myself to bite my tongue when he latches on so I don't holler and scare him! The scabbing has cleared up though, thank goodness. He is feeding quite often these days, and growing up so fast. I can't believe how he already looks like such a big baby. The days are flying by!
Thrush: I've also heard (and was confirmed by my ped.) that a white tongue is normal. Are there any other white patches inside the mouth? If you can scrape off the white on the tongue, chances are it is just milk residue.
big HUGS to butterflies & Sasha, I think about you with your twins all the time. You are strong and powerful mamas!
Kim: sorry to hear you are feeling shell-shocked. Did you have a particularly difficult time with birth? There were a few things that didn't go according to plan with my hospital birth but I'm trying really hard to just focus on the positive aspects. I wrote my birth story, I should post it here! I did leave out a lot of the complaining, lol. I wanted it to be a happy memory.
dtd: I'm getting randy but the lochia just never quits. I'm still "uncomfortable" sometimes if I sit funny, too... definitely not ready. Bummer.
My friend lent me her wrap (it's a cuddlywrap, a moby rip-off) and I'm having trouble with it. I used it once to go to ikea and it was fine but I felt as though he was drooping lower, and lower and lower until his neck was all crunched up and it didn't look very comfortable in there. We washed it to get some stretch back, but this friend is a good three sizes larger than me and I'm wondering if it has been permanently stretched out now? Can that happen?
We are nearing ten pages in this chat thread! Almost time to start a new one, maybe? What do you guys think?
