On Friday, I took Lulu to get ther 2 month checkup.
I am exclusively breast feeding and she doesn’t (read won’t) take a bottle at all, so I have no idea how much she actually eats.
Tim weighs her on the scale but it’s never been all that accurate and says a different weight every time, really.
I was so thrilled that she has gain 4.5lbs in 2 months! She also grew two inches and gain an inch of head circumference!
She got her vaccinations. She wailed like, well, a baby! But as soon as I picked her up, she was great! No bad reactions after the fact either! No fever just a little extra tired…but it was over 100 degrees that day and heat could make anyone sleepy.
So proud of my baby girl and how well the breastfeeding relationship is going.
I made a decision early on, not to over think the breastfeeding thing…I feed on demand, one breast per session unless she needs both. In short, I am trusting that it will work out ok….and it has!
She sleeps great, eats great and has a great personality. It really did get easier to breast feed after a few weeks and I am so glad I didn’t give up on it.
