My Baby NURSED!!!!

OMG OMG OMG  I have one DD (Vivian) who nurses like a champ since her first week and my other (Georgia) had only nursed once in 10 weeks.  Other times she'd get EBM.  A few times a week I would get the SNS and a shield all rigged up and she'd get maybe an ounce.  It was a huge pain and I was just about ready to throw in the towel and accept that she would never be a nurser.  Then last night I nursed Vivian and DH was holding Georgia next to me on the couch.  He said I should nurse her now too and I snorted yeah right.  I took her just to humor him and put her to breast without the shield.  She latched right on, got let down and nursed for 15 mins.  HOLY CRAP!!!  I was so happy I was a soggy mess of tears.  It's been a long road with the breast pump, supplements etc.  An hour later I tried again and she nursed again!  She wasn't so hot later in the evening during her colic period but that's okay.  I'm just so thrilled and DH has the smuggest look on his face.  Happy  LOL

Yay!  I think it's a rumor that babies won't breastfeed if they've been given a bottle for a while . . . I think if you're persistent a baby will take it up and actually prefer it.  Maybe she'll take her sister as an example, and start nursing now!

So wonderful!!!!  I can only imagine how hard it must have been to be able to nurse one DD so easily and not the other.  You are an incredible mother...and your DH doesn't sound so bad either.  Happy Wink  I hope Georgia keeps up the good work!  It sounds like she just might with such an amazing family behind her!!!  Happy Celebrate

Also, how is it going with the poop?  Has she gone yet?  Last time I read it had been 13 days....

She went 14 days until we gave her an enema at the doctor's direction.  I totally believe that BF babies don't need to poop often but she is sooooo fussy.  A LOT of poop came out but it was all soft and it didn't seem to change her mood much.  Sigh......  She does calm down and sleep at night which is reassuring.  The next step is to have a barium enema xray to check her colon.  There is some concern that she may have a congenital defect called Hirchsprung's Disease.
