aww she is so cutie sienna forever both are girls look so much a like why is she being followed by a heart doc if you dont mind me asking
yes hippy i have support but it is hit me hard that my rainbow is so sick
So hippy I wanted that buffalo pizza slice and 3 yo son was so bad all we did was get his hair cut which was a disaster, he acted like a complete weirdo and would not stop moving. He pretended he couldn't hear me too. He wanted a candy cane at the end and I said NOWAY!!! Forget that! I discipline him constantly and am consistent but nothing matters. I'm losing it today. I'm supposed to start meds to ought since DH is being so mean and crazy and selfish. Sucks that he is the nuts one and I have to take meds. I don't want to treat the kids bad and over react when it's dad as the reason.
it is a supplemental nursing system here is a link to show you what it is http://www.medelabreastfeedingus.com/products/51/supplemental-nursing-system-sns
i have to use one with her to it not easy and it is a pain but i so want to breast feed
I feel like my ppd edge is better. Things really did get better once we had the house to ourselves again. I still have rescue remedy for when I feel anxious. But the bad days are getting less and less. I had to remind dh again to cool his attitude because I can't take a setback.
I think the sns is a long term thing for us now, my milk supply was fine but she just needs more calories than I can give, probably as a result of her PDA and prematurity in general. So she's getting some high calorie preemie milk. Good news is I do still have milk so she gets some of the benefits. Then overnight and first feed is just breast no sns. Its working out OK.
Wife and mother to a wonderful son, a dear daughter now in God's arms after a brave 5 months of nicu, a precious rainbow toddler and tiny Angels due to mc. Living with a grieved but very grateful heart. Loving my family.
sienna same here my daughter get the high calore preemie milk too and i nurse her the same way she wasnt born early but the problems she has had they want her on it oh and her heart problems are an ASD Atrial septal defect , pulmonary stenosis , and her right ventricle is dilated
I have infant loss group tomorrow. The moms are great. I hear we have a new couple so i already know I will cry. It'd be great to have u all there as well. Thanks for your thoughts.
Sns looks tough sienna and unusley. U are doing what you can!
I'm with you on feeling so happy about this baby. My edge of ppd took the form of anxiety, hyper overprotective and insomnia. ONCe family left it started to get better. THAt and rescue remedy. I never picked up the cod liver oil. I think I'm getting more sleep.
Hippy - Maybe I'll try the picture. It's usually only in the beginning for 30sec-1min. But whatever will help, right? I have a burrower. When they first put baby on my chest - he immediately buried his face in my neck.. we all kept asking if he could breathe. now he burrows his face in my chest after he nurses.. it's soooooo cute.
Sienna - I was going to ask how Saffron was doing - her and Baby Byr are almost birthday twins. She is so super cute.
Wow J&J you look amazing. I still have 15 -20 extra lbs. I gained 50... so I'm trying to be positive about the 25-30 that I've already lost. Cole is so super cute! They grow so fast. Yes - I LOVE my rainbow baby.... I wish I could just love on him all day long. Working FT sucks with a newborn at home.
Have a hernia now (ouch)
I see blood I get ptsd
My friends preggo, she waited to tell me until it was "safe" (13 weeks) I know she did this because she nursed me through my mc. I felt sad she knows its not a baby until its a baby.
8 might be enough?
Or maybe 9 will be?

J&J, hope it works for the PTSD. Do yo use homeopath at all you can give him? Vit D is excellent in ridding chest colds and high dose vit c too. He's old enough for a cup, he might like that better than trying to get him to use a bottle that you'd prob want to wean from in a few months. We started giving the kids cups of ebf around four months to explore drinking from.
I think it is thrush. Baby had more white on lips and watery stool trying coconut oil on nipples , taking echinacea, bit c and cutting dairy and any sugars I may be missing. Also extra probiotics and vit d.

well we are back from the doc today with baby she still 9lbs and a few ozs they told us some of her genetic blood work came back abnormal so they are repeat it and that she is low in vit b-12 so we had more test done today and will go back in two months
Uriver- it seems like they can't come to about conclusions, i am so frustrated for you guys.
Jjmommy- i hope hes better fast! With all the flu our there its a bit scary when anyone gets sick at this point. I am glad thou are going quality snuggles though, they are magical.
Thebyr- i haven't gotten on a scale yet, I'm scared to know. I had stated running before i got pregnant and lost 15 pounds and was ab 7 lbs firm were i should be, i know I'm only 3 weeks pp, but i am completely daunted by the idea of exercising right now.
J&J, we get sodium ascorbate and dissolve in water or juice. For a baby you could do the same or squirt a few drops while bf.
My friend has some gv. Right now putting coconut oil on us and a smidge dust of probiotic on his lips. I don't know if thrush. A lc will look at him today. I don't want to add to his gut, so leary about much except milk entering it.
well dh wants to quit his job and get a new one so he can be home with the baby more since we are face not know what is going to happen it been a long road to get her here and it looks like its going to be a long road to keep her here and out of the hospital
well i got a question have any of you noticed if you left a bottle of breast milk out for 24 hours it turn red
On the job, how stressful and hard decision to make. Also some babies gain slower, maybe a pound per month, so don't stress too much. How's your supply, any better? Do you have some fenugreek or mothers milk tea to drink in addition to the medication? Maybe some yummy oatmeal cookies too, just because
