july 15- almost at 3lbs!
but still such a small little bird in daddy's arms!
she is doing good on her sprints. her blood work is still coming back a-ok. not much new going on. she's up to 26ml over an hour every 3 hours. her cpap pressure is still at 6 from when the nurse changed it back a few days ago. her weight is now 2lbs 15oz. we expect her to cross the 3lb threshold tomorrow. it seems like such a stupid thing. but 3lbs seems so big!(i'm sure you term mommies that are reading this are falling out of your chair at that statement.)
i got to hold her for a little over an hour while she was on nasal cannula. she didn't do as well tonight, but she was pooping the whole time. that girl sure does poop a lot! she only got down to the 40s.(this morning she got lower than that.) i tried rocking her more. she LOVES it. and standing and swaying. thadd was a little shocked... but i think it's just a universal baby thing. and when she's not hooked to a wall, or any electronic devices, i plan on rocking her quite a bit in the comfort of our home.
i have read that if their poop turns green it means that they aren't getting enough hind milk. is this true? is it ok? right now she's eating what i pumped over a month ago... and she's only had 1 green diaper at this point. i assume that they would tell me if it was a problem... but you know what happens when you assume!
can i put my medela parts/bottles in the dishwasher? has anyone had adverse results? and how do i get the water out of the tubing when i sanitize it? (by boil, or microwave bag) i've tried hanging it over the sink, and spinning it, luckily i have room.it terrifies the pets and really, where is the water being flicked to?
does anyone else's let down feel like pins and needles, or a million pinches? it is extremely painful for me. every time i get it it takes my breath away. it's been that way since day 1. and i don't see any of my breast feeding friends wincing in pain frequently while just standing there, minding their own business... i was just wondering if this happens to anyone else?
any ideas on something nice to do for the labor and delivery ward? when we lost max last year they took such great care of me. i wrote several individual notes, as well as one for everyone... and also brought 2 cookie bouquets. (one for days, one for nights.) this time they did an amazing job too. i wanted to think of something more creative if i could. (i am planning a week by week flip book to be delivered when wren gets out.)
