Hello everyone, this is my first post other than on the Pleased to Meet You board. Hopefully I didn't skip a step! Anyhow, I find that every week I worry about something different with DD. Is she getting enough hindmilk? Are her feedings too short? Are her poops too frequent? Oops, now they're not frequent enough! And they're a funny color! And she strains when she goes! Nope, now they're back to normal, but she's eating more EBM at daycare! how will I keep up? And her sleep (and nursing) habits are all over the place, one night sleeping through the night, one night waking every 2 hours. It seems silly when I write it down, especially in light of the fact that other than a relatively mild (and Zantac-controlled) case of reflux and a dairy sensitivity that we're currently testing, she's healthy, happy, and content. Does there ever come a point (and maybe it takes a few kids, :LOL ) when you just relax and say, "Hey, if the kid seems to be thriving, everything must be fine!"<br><br>
At least I know she's getting the best food available, and I'm so proud of getting through early plugged ducts, mastitis, pain, and giving up some of my favorite foods (ah pizza, I miss you so). Seeing her smile and hearing her laugh makes it all worthwhile.
