Hi ladies, I just have a sec, but am so thrilled to hear form you all! Someone asked what Jasper had... can't believe that didn't make it into the story. He had pneumonia. They think he developed it while my water was broken. So not fair!


As for the breastfeeding, I saw a new lactation consultant & she says he's developing breast aversion. The prescription is to take a break from 'trying' to breast feed for a week, while continuing to have lots of skin to skin time & feeding him by the breast & co-bathing with him (he usually will spontaneously nurse in the bath). So we're on day two of our break. I'm very hopeful it'll work bc I have seen him have a very bad day, where he fusses the minute I put him to the breast, so I back off for a day then he does better. I guess a whole week will give him time to forget why he's resisting. Then we reintroduce very slowly & gently. Cross your fingers for me!


When he as 20 days old I had my frined come & take portraits. Here's a link to them. There's a lot of pics, but many are different versions of the same pic. She's such a talented photographer!


Happy February!!

Noel, your little Jasper is sooo cute!!!! Wonderful pictures!
I'm sorry you are having such a hard time with BF, but don't loose the faith. Remember Joelle, she had to pump for 6 weeks before Daphne finally started nursing...
