one month

Oh my hell, a whole month has gone by and I haven't posted. We are doing well. I am struggling with some post partum depression and trying to get through w/o medication but I'm feeling like that it may be necessary. Faith has gained back her weight and then some. She and I figured out the nursing game but now we have thrush. It's so embarrassing to admit that my nipples and my baby have a yeast infection but there it is. She's asleep in the sling right now. We are working towards a schedule of sorts. Last night she slept 5 hours straight it was great, but my boobs were ready to explode. We've been nursing every 2-3 hours so 5 hours was a stretch but glorious for sleep. Faith is a restless sleeper, she grunts, moans, sighs and flails around most of the night. A tight swaddle holds her for a while but she always gets out. When she is quiet I worry she has stopped breathing so it's probably good she is rowdy sleeper. My sleepy baby window is closing so, this is a short post, but I promise to post again soon.

Glad you are doing okay! I was wondering how things were going. And if you feel you need extra help with some meds, do it! :) take care of yourself!
