We went in to the dr for a weight check on Friday morning. All naked, #3 only weighed 6 lbs 1 oz. Her birth weight was 7 lbs 3 oz, so she has lost quite a bit of weight. And then at Target I beleive she lost several ounces in her diaper! Our dr wants us to start feeding her every 3 hrs, around the clock until she gets back to her birth weight.
That explains why I am up at 3:51 AM and just finished my own middle-of-the-night snack!
My alarm went off at 3 am and I was completely confused. As a momma to 2 preschoolers I haven't had to set my alarm in a very long time. As a woman recovering from a 3rd csection, I am still enjoying some pain medication......both make for a bit of grogginess in the middle of the night-
However we arose, #3 had to be prodded just a bit to take her bottle, but she did eat all 2 ounces!! When I put her back into her bassinet my tummy was rumbly.....and since I am still attempting the whole breastfeeding thing I easily justified a bowl of rasin bran.........something I wouldn't even allow myself to do when I was pregnant and suffering from insomnia!
I am thru now and need to hit the hay since I reset my alarm for 615.........no more cereal then, though!
Happy Saturday............we go back in on Monday for another weight check, I will let you know how it goes!
