first time mom and worry about my little angel. My husband says I stress to much. I agree with him on this one. It just that I want her to be healthy. I hope my stress isn't affecting her eating or my milk supply.
Her birthweight was 6 pounds 4 oz and she weight on Oct 5 9 pounds 4 oz.Pediatrician said she was in the 10%. That sounds too low for me.
my baby is 2 months and 2 weeks. We have been fighting thrush for a month now. She was first perscribed nystatin for a week. Then fluconazole for a week. Hopefully with the gentian violet the doctor prescribed will help her little mouth clear up. My mistake was that I wasn't treating myself. The pediatrician told me to clean my nipples with lotrimin 4 times a day for a week. After my 4th time of using it I clean them with vinegar and water. I hope that will eliminate it for good.
My problems she that she has always fallen a sleep on my breast right away. I'm afraid she won't be gaining enough weight. Therefore loosing my milk supply. I don't want to give her formula.
She only eats for a couple of minutes. When I pump for 1o minutes I only produce 1 oz on each side. After that I burp her and see if she takes it again but usually she doesn't. Then I change her diaper and she takes some more.She hardly spits up. She doesn't take the bottle. She just keeps it in her mouth. When she eats I do hear her swallowing milk.
