I am so happy to be able to say that after 3 months of bottles, Cora has started breastfeeding! She started on Friday, and has just gathered steam ever since. She is already pretty much refusing to take bottles from me (although she'll still take them from Nick), which is crazy since I've heard that it can happen, but didn't expect it to happen so soon.
Of course, it's a lot trickier to know how much she's getting, and being the fastidious chart-happy milliliter counting parents we've been it's almost disconcerting. She hasn't gained in the past 2 days, but we're hoping that she'll continue on and actually start gaining weight.
I really didn't expect this to happen. Okay, so I hoped, but I was trying not to weigh too much of my happiness on it. So I am thrilled.
Otherwise not much else to say. We went to the pediatrician today, which went really well. She is healing beautifully and her incision scab is almost completely gone. She has been less fussy at night, which is welcome. She even napped really well today, which she hasn't been doing lately.
And of course, I have to post her cutest pictures from the last couple of days. My sister Mira who is trekking through Thailand and Vietnam has asked for a new video, so I will work on that one soon. It will probably be much easier to capture her smiles in motion.
