At birth Little E measured 18 inches long and weighed 5 pounds 11 ounces. Today she is 19 1/2 inches long and 7 pounds 2 ounces. We are doing something right and that makes me happy.
As for the breast milk. The Ped doc suggested I take the fenugreek tablets 2 at 3 times daily in addition to the tea I'm drinking and to try out the lactation cookies. I said I didn't feel up to baking as of yet. She said I can buy them online. I noticed them on Amazon the other day so I decided to purchase them today along with the tablets. Hopefully this will help my milk supply. When the breast milk increases to half of what Little E normally takes in her bottle I'm to start her on the Vitamin D drops they prescribed her today.
As for the colic. It will pass. We were told not to do water, gas drops and other remedies but to just put her stomach down on our legs and rub her back. She is pooping just fine and gaining weight.
I, however, am a different story. They gave me the mental health assessment sheet. I scored a 10 and that isn't a good thing. I was then counseled and given the number to the behavioral health clinic. I said I'll call them soon. I have no problem with getting help. I used to get help when I was going through the infertility treatments. I just wish I'd stop crying so much.
As for the pain. The peds doc told me that percocet isn't going to hurt my breast milk considering that I don't take it that often and she'd rather I not be in pain.
Time to go pump the milk while J feeds her from the last pumping and the formula he just made up.
