That's how one of my friends with a very colicky baby described the passage of time in the eaArly weeks. I deem it accurate. I don't know if So.ren is colicky, but he certainly has a set of witching hours in the evening. And I am still constantly nursing/pumping. And I can't pump enough to stay ahead of him, really.
At the pediatrician, he had gained less than an ounce a day, but she said he was in the normal range. I am supposed to wean him off pumped-milk supplements by the next weight check on Monday. I got another plugged duct yesterday - this one from wearing the Bjorn, I think - which hurt my left side's output for the rest of the day. Sigh.
I have contracted with a traveling baby nurse/sleep trainer to come here for a week in June, then another in July. She uses the Happiest Baby and Baby Whisperer methods, which strike me as sensible, though I can appreciate how others might prefer different approaches.
Here are a couple of photos. One is of my birthday - a baby and a cupcake. The other is of So.ren doing whar we call his 'antlers' maneuver - he often holds his hands like this while nursing.
