Most recently, the hardest thing to get this little one to do is burp. This makes the night feedings more of a challenge! Of course this morning I had to wake her, otherwise she probably would have gone more than the 5 hours it already was, and when you are breastfeeding, that isn't necessarily a good thing! But I glowingly digress, what is it that makes the burping take so long? I know it is not technique, Grandma doesn't have an easier time than I do. I read in a book that if it takes longer than 10 minutes, you don't have to burp her. When it takes so long to burp, she wakes up and wants to eat more, doesn't that just defeat the purpose of trying to burp!? I guess we will be asking the pediatrician today, at her first Dr's appt. Yes, today we will find out how much the chunky monkey has gained in a week.
Yesterday, Eric and I tried to leave the house with Gwen at home with Grandma, yes, it was my first outing since being home from the hossy. It was a successful trip out, we made it to our destination, but then had to come back home, before I could do any shopping. Stinkin' crying babies!
Today before Grandma leaves we will be downloading all of the pictures we have taken, so hopefully we will have some of the more recent photos up soon.
Eric goes back to work today, sorry that the bliss of caring for me and Gwen at home is over, now he must go back to work and face the fun of that...without me there! So by tomorrow it will just be me and Gwen, hangin' at home, hopefully eventually I will venture out for walks, since I was told I couldn't drive for 6 weeks! I will be calling the OB about that later, for sure!
