Baby Gage is home!!

  1. Hi everybody! Just thought I would share our good news with you all. Baby Gage came home on Saturday. He weighs a healthy 5 1/2 pounds now. He's doing very well. I'm still having some trouble breastfeeding, which is weird for me because I nursed two children with no problems before, but this time my milk is just not coming in well, and Gage has a lot of trouble latching on. He takes a bottle like a champ though, so I pump what I can & put him to the breast several times every day to try and get him to nurse. I'm doing everything I possibly can think of (fenugreek 3 pills TID, Reglan TID, drinking lots of fluids, eating well, getting enough rest, etc) but I think all the stress from him being in the hospital and the significant blood loss I experienced at the time of delivery have impeded me a little bit this time.

    Other than the nursing problems though, everything is good. He's a gorgeous little guy, and one of these times I'm going to get some newer pictures of him uploaded to my website. Just thought I'd share the good news! Thanks for all your prayers and warm thoughts!!!
