I don't watch the Duggars all the time. I just caught an episode with baby Josie. She is so tiny. Michelle was so tender with her...it got me teary. I am going to try to watch more often to see how this little babe grows!

They just re-ran the show when (I think there were 16 kids??) the family moved into the new house. It was so cute to see the big kids as young ones and the little ones as babies! I wish they would show some of the really older ones--unless I am dreaming, I think they had a 14 (maybe 15) kids show on many years ago? That was the first one I saw. I remember feeling a bit critical of them at time & the show has since turned me around. It is very interesting.

After I posted, I saw on Yahoo that she came home, what a blessing!

That makes perfect sense if the kids had pox.

Ok, so what's the deal with the lactose intolerance leading to weaning from mother's milk? Why couldn't they just give her lactase?

She's a micro preemie and they can have quite a few intestinal track problems. Even though Lactose Intolerance is rare, it does happen to some babies. I don't think Lactase is intended for babies that young. I do wonder why she didn't try cutting dairy out of her diet. But I'm sure there's so much more to this that they didn't show.

Either way, she's doing great now and gaining weight, digesting food etc. That is wonderful!

It looked to me like maybe she wasn't lactating anymore and the baby was only getting what she had pumped? So, if the milk she pumped had lactose and the baby has lactose issues then the milk that she pumped and stored won't work for the baby?

I heard her say that - she pumped over 500 gallons of milk and Josie can't drink any of it. My initial thought was "WTH, just cut out dairy!" but that wouldn't help if she's not lactating anymore. I thought it was awesome that she said the hospital would possibly be able to use her frozen milk for other babies, though I'm glad it was a simple problem, but how frustrating to go through ALL THAT and have it end up being lactose intolerance!

I was under the assumption that all breast milk contained lactose (around 7%) regardless of what the mother is consuming. Is that not true?

Not that I am aware of but you should ask over in breastfeeding someone over there would know for sure. I do know many moms bf lactose intolerant babies by doing restricted diets though.

I DVR the Duggars so I just saw the Chicken Pox episode last night. I screamed at my husband when I saw the intro--a carton of chicken pox! So tacky but cute at the same time. He said, "they probably just do some vaxes like we do." Whatever the case (don't want to speculate, really, because i don't care that much), it's good to see a TV family with chicken pox.

And BTW, who has TWELVE thermometers in their house?!

How about the way Michelle had Josie in the carseat, strapped to the little foldy-stroller, with all of her equipment? I was worried that it wouldn't hold with all that weight but I guess she knows what she's doing.

I think you're referring to the differense between lactose and cow's milk protiens, which obviously can be eliminated through diet changes. I was curious about the same thing but since she's a micropreemie maybe lactose intolerant is correct. I can't imagine that Michelle would give up BFing unless it was truly necessary, especially after all that pumping.

I was more scared when she was carrying it all down the flight of stairs. I was on the edge of my seat.

On the topic of lactose, I gave up breastfeeding my 3rd child because she was lactose intolerant. I was told all bm contained lactose. I guess I was given false information. Not a surprise though considering the source (ped).

Maybe I'm totally off, but to me that contraption looked like a frame to hold a carseat, not an actual umbrella stroller.

I'm finding I have a hard time enjoying the show because all I can think of is what people are going to criticize.

But I did like the last episode. A little more "daily life" and less travelling.

I'm watching the episode where they have the Bontragers over for dinner. Jim Bob and Michelle just called everyone in to the kitchen to make an announcement. I felt bad, but I was so relieved when the Production Assistant was expecting instead of the Duggars.

I don't think being a micro preemie changes how you digest mother's milk. They do have a lot of digestive issues, for sure. My daughter never pooped and was always throwing up. But I don't know what we would have done if I couldn't give her breastmilk. Until she was 18 months, it was literally one of the only things she could tolerate well. But for all the babies Michelle has breastfed, she's never managed to do one for very long. Her supply seems to dry up around 6 months... though usually because she's pregnant again. It's so sad for her that she worked so hard to pump all that milk and she can't use it. I'm glad she can donate it because there is nothing worse that dropping hundreds of ounces of milk in the dumpster.

Looks like Michelle had to have her gallbladder out. I am glad, one less thing to worry about down the road.
