Something else Eli’s been up to lately is talking! He’s a regular ole chatter box these days and we love it!
I remember when he was newborn- we kept waiting for him to smile, make good eye contact and coo. I would worry when he didn’t do them, but every time I worried he would start doing it. Lol
Now he feels so grown! My baby is getting bigger every day! He doesn’t even want to be cradled like a baby much anymore. *sigh*
Anyway, his babbling has turned into one word- “mom” or “momma”. 🙂 I haven’t caught him saying it on video yet but this is him trying to and coming very very close.
PROUD momma!!! 🙂
Milkies update: my supply is officially dropping. It’s very frustrating. Mainly because I know the decrease is directly related to the fact that Eli isn’t breastfeeding anymore and I’m not near him like I was before work started. Breaks my heart. 😦
4 months of dedication to pumping and breastfeeding and it’s only taken one week to see a significant decline. I went from 27-29oz a day to 22 and declining.
I can’t add anymore pumps to my day- 8 times throughout the work day and being awake from 5-10 with no naps is all I can handle. Fenugreek, water, vitamins, and food- all accounted for.
Next we are adding domperidone. If this doesn’t work then nothing will. We were going to try Reglan but the side effects were so scary sounding I just didn’t want to have anything to do with it. Domperidone is still an herb so while it is used for the same purpose, it acts differently than Reglan in your body. And it has less possible side effects than Reglan.
So that is where we stand right now. I really want this to work. I’m so proud of how far I’ve come and how hard I’ve worked regardless of the outcome, and at this point even if I make one bottle a day it’s still worth it.
And you know what else? TGIF!!!! I have the whole weekend coming up with my sweetness and I am so so happy! Have an awesome weekend! Thanks for reading!
