She seems to have tummy troubles yesterday and today. Started at 4am, she spit up in her sleep, of course I was right beside her so I jumped up at the sound of her fussing. She has only spit up less then a handful of times total, and then it happened 4 times between 4-6am, so something was bothering her although she didn’t seem overly upset by it, it smelled sweet not sour, so I think it was undigested milk, cause it smells bad when she spits up half digested milk. Today she is alternating between being ultra sleepy and then fussy when awake with lots of farts and burps, so it seems to me this is digestive issues. Dave thinks she is overeating, or taking in more milk then her tummy can handle, since she has been cluster feeding since 9pm last night being at breast for 45 minutes, 1 hour off, then back…I wonder if I have an oversupply and how I would know..my breasts are not super full or engorged ever anymore, she does not seem to choke or fuss at feeding time, that only happens if she misses a 3 hour feeding, like sleeps 4 hours so then the breast is really full and waiting..hmmmm.
We have gotten so good as of late of reading her we have been able to nip her fussiness in the bud, minimizing crying, so I feel so bad when I don’t know how to help her. Poor wee child.
I cant believe how deeply my love for her grows everyday, its so wonderful, she’s so precious and wonderful.
I really have to figure out a babywearing solution..she is so happy being held and I hate to put her down too much as well, but I need two hands to eat, wash ect…so wearing her would be the most obvious solution..I have a one size pouch sling but she dosen’t like it, the pouch is too deep for her head, it’s fine for her body but I can’t figure out how to keep her face exposed, her head just sinks in too far and she cries…I had a snugli carrier but I can’t find it anywere. I think I am going to keep my eyes peeled for cheep cotton knit fabric, pick up 5-6 yards and make make my own Moby type carrier. A friend in Toronto carried her daughter in lenghts of linen like this and I remember it being quite comfy and conviniant.
