A few photos from the past couple of days, including Edie's first walk in her stroller (we just walked around the neighborhood). We have a much more adorable stroller (thanks Lindsey for the hook up!) but for now, we're using this cheapy version that's super lightweight and allows us to have her facing us. We figure once she's a little older, we'll move to the trendy three-wheeler.
We had a bit of a rough night last night as Edie decided to mix it up. She's usually a great sleeper and falls back asleep almost immediately following each feeding so we get three 2.5-3 hour chunks of sleep per night. But last night we were up from 4-6:30am trying to get her to settle down. She wasn't hysterical, but she got the hiccups for 30 minutes and then was fussy every time I'd set her down. That coupled with my inability to get her to use the fancy new breast feeding device with the ease that the lactation expert was, was pretty exhausting. I woke with a new sense of peace at the idea that breast feeding may just not work. Your supportive comments actually really helped too. Today, I decided to give myself a break and have pumped instead of putting her to the breast. The pumping is significantly less painful, and at least then I can still offer her my paltry supply through a bottle before topping her off with formula. The directions on the Funagreek I'm taking to supposedly increase my supply say that it's working when you start to smell like maple syrup. Well, I am like a walking stack of pancakes right now but the supply has not increased one iota. I'll keep it up for another week or so, but after that, I make no promises.
