It was the first time Elle and her doctor met. Pretty uneventful visit, for the most part. Elle is down to 8 lbs 6 oz and has a touch of jaundice. So, I've gotta be a meanie and make her stay awake to eat more now. This baby is seriously a little blob and looooooves to snooze. She is in the 50th percentile for weight and 75th for height. I was supplementing with formula until my milk came in. This kid is a force to be reckoned with when she's hungry! I used the supplemental nursing system and it was awesome. I didn't want to use bottles because of the chance of nipple confusion. I'm happy to say that practice DOES make perfect and she's now completely off formula and nursing quite well at this point. Yay!
(ash can't get enough of her baby sister. britt is not as excited as i thought she'd be. we'll get there.)
