Squee! Oh *ahem* Hooray.

I almost hesitate to post this, because whenever I think I see real progress and comment on it, the next day really sucks. But here goes:
I am pretty sure I am making more milk.  Why?

Lola is satisfied after nursing. I don't have to jam a bottle into her frantic mouth as soon as she comes off the breast.
She's taken LESS THAN 10 OZ. of supplements today, and she's been just as alert and happy as usual.
She went TWELVE HOURS without a bottle last night.
She still has a good number of wet diapers, and her fontanel is only slightly sunken (but was like that on formula, too.)
Now, it's just a waiting game to make sure she's still gaining well. I hope, I hope, I hope she is.


  1. Hey even if you have a couple good days and then a bad day, you are still progressing! No worries! Celebrate the good days and stay encouraged by them when the bad ones come. :) Woot woot!

  2. YAY!!!!!!!!!
    This is incredible Nyssa! Sounds like a happy, FULL, baby to me! :-D
