Just checking in here... all is well and we're all happy campers!
I am feeling like my only purpose is to be a milk machine, and am feeling very bovine, but I know it's all going to pay off, and I really do enjoy breastfeeding, just not as often as Carsten has a thirst, I suppose!
I am not sure if I'm making milk or frosting, because on Wednesday Carsten was weighed at the doctor and had gained 6.5 ounces since Monday. Yes, in less than 3 full days, he gained 6.5 ounces. MONSTER!
So happy we've been successful though. Now if only he'd sleep a TINY bit more at night, like wake up every 3 hours to eat, rather than every hour and a half or two... but at least he's happy and extremely healthy - we're blessed!
I guess I DO like breastfeeding so often, now that I think about it. You burn SO many calories that it makes weight loss a bit easier. I have lost 29 pounds since he was born. I have many more to go to get to my happy weight, that I haven't been at since college graduation, but I'll get there... and only 7 more pounds to shed until Carsten's baby weight is gone... now if only I could fit into my non-maternity jeans! ACK!
Happy Weekend, Sweet Friends!
