    so……….i am happy to report that caroline had nothing but pumped bm at daycare all day yesterday and nothing but boobie at home last night and she did not have any screaming fits!! yay! so we are now on day 2 of bm and boobie and i’m really super hoping she does great again. she wasn’t really awake any last night though because she had her shots yesterday…she fell asleep at 7:30pm and slept until 2:45am. i’m hoping to have more awake time with her tonight and the dr upped her dosage on prevacid to 1 pill a day instead of 1/2 so we will see how she does tonight! yippee!

    Any tips for entertaining a toddler while feeding a newborn? My DD is 17 months and so far she has been looked after during the day either by childcare or family just to help me out. But I miss her and would prefer her to be with me but she can get really cranky when she isn’t getting enough attention. She’s not a book girl and has a pretty short attention span. I was thinking of giving her some fruit and sitting her next to me with a kids DVD on (she doesn’t watch tv much so I feel bad for doing this) Any other ideas? I’m pretty nervous since it’s been so easy with just my son and no crazy toddler running round haha. I guess I will need her to get used to it sooner rather than later!

    I pumped every 2 hours at work.. If you can pump more often, definitely try to. Otherwise it might effect your supply. 5 hours is longer than your baby would probably go, and you’ll want to pump at least as often as your baby would eat.

    my lansinoh bags say you can leave breastmilk in the fridge 8 days. smell and taste test it. everyones BM is different.

    Oh Emiliee! Don’t say growth spurt! I don’t think my back can take one right about now. He’s already reaching 23lbs. I know he’s not getting any smaller but man it can slow up a bit don’t you think . HAHA!

    Didderty – Zoey, who nurses to sleep every night, refused a few times around 3.5 months. Screamed bloody murder every time it came near her mouth. Took her to the ped, firmly believing she had acid reflux, and he told me she was teething. I was a little worried she was weaning because it happened two days in a row…but as Bri says, babies don’t self wean that early (unless they develop a nipple preference), Hang in there. She’ll probably be back to normal in a few days.

    illy2 – Any oatmeal is good but if you are doing fermented oatmeal which is what i got the best results from then you use Old Fashion Oats. Quaker does have them and it’ll say it on the box.

    Bri, that is what I read a lot of mom’s do since you are not supposed to let them sleep in it. Around the neck during awake times and around the ankle at night. 🙂 Do you mind me asking how much you paid on Amazon…I didn’t even look there, I was going to order through a mom on Facebook… http://www.momsmilkboutique.com/ she carries the Inspired by Finn line of them.

    LCMelbourne, it sounds like you’re doing just fine. Braeden slept about 22 hours a day for the first month and a half of life. He’d wake to eat about every 2 hours, and fall asleep eating within 10 minutes at the most. Usually earlier, and I would have to go change his diaper to wake him and get him to finish eating. Or strip him down to his diaper so he wasn’t all warm and comfy. It surprises me that they would tell you he needs to eat every 3-4 hours, that’s a long time for a newborn to go. Even a formula fed newborn, their tummies are so tiny not much can fit in there! It sounds like you are doing a great job, and I agree, if she wasn’t getting enough, she would likely wake more often. Also, ignore how long they say you are supposed to nurse for. Some babies are more efficient at getting the milk out than others, and some mom’s have a stronger letdown, which also makes the milk come faster. Both my kids were quick nursers, and both averaged about 5-10 minutes per feeding.

    isaac’s favorite beach toy was his bucket. The best way we got him to sleep was an evening walk on the beach. Nice quiet time for me and dh too.

    Wow! Did you see this. It’s a little extreme. Jail time for not breastfeeding? Hmmm?…..http://health.asiaone.com/Health/News/Story/A1Story20100812-231653.html

    benbubby- How’s his gas? Some babies just have awful gas. Alex sure did. I needed to do infant massage, bicycle the legs and even push his knees to his chest several times a day. It was almost like a musical instrument! HAHA! He was arching his back a lot. It was the gas bubbles trying to get through. Anytime he was angry I would lay him down and massage him. I would try to lightly bring his knees up to his chest which helps the gas escape. If you don’t think that’s it then have a talk with your doctor. I wouldn’t do the hospital just yet. Besides the cost your own doctor may have an idea.
