Rosebud's 7 month post was more a cry for help...and I needed it. The suggestions, encouragement, and prayers. Thank you.
On Monday her "situation" came to a head when she hadn't had more than a tablespoon or so of urine output by 3pm...to me that is a crisis point. I thawed 3 oz and had a friend give her first bottle (she wasn't even going to think about taking it from me, and Snug tried too). She had cried pretty good most of the day, and was actually trying hard to nurse, but not getting anything immediately so she was furious. After the bottle she calmed down, I relaxed and we have continued this routine with success ever since. She nurses all day, I pump when I can** and she gets a 3 oz bottle of expressed milk in the afternoon.
So here are her 7 month pictures. Thanks!
**Without airing out too much of his dirty laundry, heaven knows I'd hate it if someone did that to me, Little Monkey Man has been almost too much for me to handle. When I pump he has been finding all sorts of dangerous things to get into and do. I have had to limit my pumping to when he is in bed. Will be consulting his therapists ASAP.
