Thanks so much for the encouragement, ladies!
Annabelle is five days old now and I really feel like we've hit our stride. Monday the nurse came over and she was 7lbs 3oz down from 7lbs 14oz. We went to the health unit today for a follow-up and weigh in, and we're up to 7lbs 11oz! Half a pound in three days! She's nursing wonderfully, and I'm really enjoying motherhood.
I find I'm able to respond to her cues now to the point where she hardly fusses at all. She spends lots of time every day just happily looking around and being her sweet self. It feels really good to know what she needs and be able to follow my instincts in giving it to her.
Her skin is irritated on her bottom but we've just switched to cloth seeing as the meconium poops are done. She's rapidly nearing 8lbs and able to fit my prefolds, so hopefully that and lots of nakeybum time helps clear it all up.
I'm so proud I could burst.
