1 month ago i had my third baby and very well my last
it seems like forever ago
to the point that i think that he should be bigger, or maybe i just think too much about the cf and the fact that most infants with cf are small and grow slow
he is not
he is a month today
birth weight was 7lbs 12 oz
1 week old was 7lbs 2 oz
2 weeks 7lbs 7oz
3 weeks 8lbs 1oz
this week monday(which was 8 days after the 8lbs 1oz measure) was 8lbs 14oz
he gained a little more than twice what the doctors were hoping he would gain
he is awesome
one month and i am done being able to pump
Ronan takes two bottles a day with his vitamins and saline solution
up until a couple of days ago i could pump and then top up after and all was good and a miracle
with my other kids i could never pump at all and i got over it quick
i am not a cuddly person and nursing is something that i don't mind but don't mind to give up either
i never have been able to nurse past 6 months
Ronan needs the best head start to a great immune system as possible and nursing is one of the best ways to give it a good start
i feel like i am letting him down, i know it sounds crazy but it is the way i think
his stomach gets bothered more with the formula also so i am really hoping his weight gain continues and that he can digest formula as easily as breast milk
i am not done nursing, i will continue, but i can sense the decent to formula happening
on a different note
Ronan rolled over today from he tummy to his back...TWICE.
it is crazy but he is strong
he is such a good baby.
on a totally different note again
Elias has been sick for 5 days now.
diarrhea and vomit
please pray for healing
I don't think he or I can handle much more.
