General note? Waking up to love notes and encouragement from our parents? Priceless. Love you!
Okay, guys. Tess’ new party trick? Trying to inhale the whole nipple and making herself gag. This particular activity makes me despair AND freak out, since gagging a 5-pounder is not on my daily list of things to do. The nurses and NNP think she’s still on track, but it’s hard to believe right this second. This morning’s feeding was a complete fail, but she looked so comfy and passed out that I couldn’t really get worked up. She hasn’t pooped in over 24 hours, which isn’t significant but she’s working on it around the clock and therefore not really sleeping well. I am so rooting for a non blowout for Dave. 🙂
Jamie, our nurse practitioner of choice, is convinced Tess will pass the carseat test after gaining just a few more ounces. I’m hoping that happens tonight, since we’re giving it a try tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
Dave had no more luck with the bottle than I did. Well, after 36 hours of trying to poop, they decided to sneak a little prune juice into her food. Here’s hoping it helps her regularity so she can eat and sleep! Win? Dave did get the blowout. Snicker.
