Well we survived the travel to Hawaii with a newborn. It was SO beautiful there. We had a blast and did not want to come home to the freezing weather! But we are now home and settled back in (as settled as you can be with a baby in the house). We discovered that Reese has developed bad GERD and is now on Zantac twice a day, which has helped. When she has break through reflux I give her Maalox or Gripe water, which also helps. We went doctors this past Monday for a "sick" visit because of the reflux and she weighs 11 pounds 4 ounces now! She is a little chunk! Breastfeeding is still going well. I am continuing to pump as well. I've figured out she takes about 28 - 30 ounces a day and I produce around 48 - 50 ounces a day. So, I think I will be fine to go back to work as far as milk goes.
On to another subject, SLEEP (or lack of I should say). I have never been so exhausted in my life. When she was struggling with the reflux really bad, I was literally pulling all nighters with a screaming baby! I felt terrible because I could console her. Now she is sleeping a little better but won't fall asleep until an hour after I feed her. So with her eating every 3 hours, that really on gives me a max of 2 hours of sleep at a time. UGH I hope it gets better, she is so worth it though.
I feel like there is so much more to write about but she is awake and wanting to eat now, so until next time my friends! I will leave you with a few of her newborn photos and her 1 month shot.
