Just had my “mid-wifes” visit from the city to see how Sakura was doing her first week at home.
Had to proudly report that my exclusively breastfed baby has gained over 300 grams (or 10 oz) since she was released from the hospital a week ago. So take that stupid doctors and nurses who kept threatening me to suppliment her and telling me she was going hungry.
Makes me feel a LOT better and glad that I listened to my gut (and all the wonderful advice from my bloggy supporters) Seems like Sakura got a good report although the midwife came right during naptime which meant dealing with a VERY cranky baby for the second half of the visit.
Yesterday we actually got out of the house for a bit. We drove to the local mall to go around and were there for about 2 hours until Sakura got hungry and I found that breastfeeding in the “baby room” was still an impossibility BUT I had my first Starbucks in ages! I got a Matcha Frappachino yay!! It was so yummy.
Last night we had a return of Sakura the beast… it was like Friday night all over again. Agitated and overtired baby screaming and refusing to be comforted for 4-5 hours… Ryohei was about to KILL her at the end. I had to take her away from him since he was starting to tell her “Dame!!” (bad) We finally got her swaddled which seemed to help a lot and she finally started taking a pacifier today. All she wants to do is suck suck suck… its ridiculous. If she doesnt have a boob or hand or (now) pacifier in her mouth she just gets so angry.
She’s still sleeping well when she sleeps though she goes 4-5 hours at night which had me worried she wasn’t getting enough milk but since her weight gain is so good I guess I will just not worry about it as much. So pretty much I have less worries and more just plain being tired – my mom is here until Sunday morning and then its going to be “just the two of us” which I’m looking forward to and dreading at the same time. I def. like NOT having another person in the house but it has been so nice to be able to hand the baby off to my mom when I’m tired and want to take a shower or am frustrated.
Anyways that my rather boring update!
