Surfacing - ds has a really bad case of jaundice after my emergency c-section with him, and then once he was getting better the jaundice lingered, as it tends to do, but as they get older it is much less dangerous...you would know if there were a problem, because, as the docs have told me, when it starts to cause problems those babies are extremely lethargic, have to be woken to be fed, etc. Also, they get rid of the bilirubin through bowel movements, so that should be pretty much taken care of by now! Probably just lingering yellow...hope everything is ok!!!
Hey Mamas - Cerys is nearly 6 weeks old and also likes to be held! She hates being worn so far but loves sleeping in the bassinet stroller (we call it a pram in the UK) when we're outside.
She has gained 7 oz a week for the past 2 weeks which I'm delighted about. When we were struggling with nursing, she was gaining really slowly. We're finally moving out of the newborn clothes and into 0-3 mths.
Hopefully we're flying back to Moscow next Friday. Waiting on her visa though...sooooooo ready to get out of the in-laws house!
Do any of you pump? I am rubbish at it!!!
It's our wedding anniversary on Saturday so we want to go out for dinner and MIL will babysit.
I just pumped after feeding DD and got 1 oz total after pumping both breasts for about 10 mins. The most I have got was 2 oz.
Could this be because I don't pump daily? Any advice? I have a Medela Swing fwiw.
