I hope it's ok that I'm starting a new thread.
Sorry to everyone who has fussy baby and nursing problems!
Sasha, you're really a trooper to keep going with the breastfeeding!
Karen, my right breast is my problem breast too. Something about it makes it very difficult for us to get a deep latch.
Nic, I'm sorry about your tear. I know how hard that can make postpartum recovery. I had 2nd degree tears with both of my other births and that was hard enough!
And Catie, I'm so sorry that you had that scare with Ian's birth! I can see how coming to terms with his birth story would be difficult.
Well, we started out Sunday night/Monday morning with ds waking up vomiting. We brought him into bed with us and he threw up every 20 minutes until morning. He's ad diarrhea ever since and a terrible diaper rash that we have yet to get control of. Luckily he likes pedialyte, so no signs of dehydration yet. Then the night before last, dd woke up and almost passed out several times (SO scary!) before vomiting, so I sent DH down the hall to her room and brought her into bed with me, where I helped her vomit every 20 minutes until I started throwing up... Today we're both feeling mostly better, so I cleaned and did laundry and ran errands and then my rght breast started hurting SO badly and I realized I was starting to get a breast infection!!! So I manually expressed as much milk as I could while Maia was sleeping, took 600 mg of Motrin and woke her up and forced her to nurse in every possible position on that side for the rest of the evening. I'm feeling better now, but that breast still has that painful "bruised" feeling. And of course we're still treating the thrush!
I'm going to bed. This has been quite an exhausting week!
