Weekly Wisdom: I thought Miranda ate a lot last week when she would cluster-feed for 2-4 hours sometimes twice a day. But she hit an 8-hour record this time! Breastfeeding is so hard! I'm thinking that when formula was invented women danced in the streets to celebrate their liberation? You won't hear La Leche League talking about that. Anyway, I will continue to breastfeed because I decided it's best for a lot of reasons (just not for my sanity or freedom).
Best moment/s: Knowing that at least breastfeeding is working this time, and I don't need supplementation. Also, Miranda just gets cuter every day. And apart of the binge eating, she's really a very good baby. She almost (but not quite) sleeps through the night. She just wakes up for one quick feeding and back to sleep. I get a decent amount of sleep at night.
Looking a little like my mom
She's got little bug eyes.
Super cute, until James got sick just hours later.
Baby-size: 8 lbs 11 almost 12 oz at her Friday appointment. (9 lbs 6 oz at birth, 8 lbs 8 oz at hospital discharge, 8 lbs 6 oz at 1 week.) She's still in newborn-size clothing.
