Piper has been incredibly fussy the last two days. Today, she was awake from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the exception of a 20 min. nap in the car. She has just been so fussy and wanting to nurse almost constantly. She finally fell asleep after nursing around 4 and I was able to put her in the Amby and she actually stayed asleep! She's been sleeping for an hour, thank goodness. She was about the same yesterday, but wasn't awake quite as much. We just got our Amby set up last night and she slept a good chunk of the night in it (for 3-4 hours, the first part of the night). I think it's going to be helpful for all of us to get a bit more sleep.
I'm hoping this is just part of the 2 week growth spurt (they do go through a 2 wk growth spurt, right?) I drank some milkmaid tea today, hoping that will help. I think I've been a bit stressed the last few days, I know that can affect supply too. We bought a new minivan to accomodate our growing family and spent the better part of the last two days looking at vans and working on negotiating and doing paperwork for the one we chose. That completely stressed me out. And dh is leaving tomorrow, which is also a huge stress. I'm sure this is all affecting Piper, at minimum, because of fluctuating milk supply. Anyway, just needed to whine about my fussy child. I hope it gets better soon.
