Well, the new girl is sleeping now. The last 2 days she has taken an afternoon nap and then cried off and on from 1830 to midnight. The evenings are so long when she won't settle. I want so badly to have a good breastfeeding relationship this time around but it is such a struggle. In theory, it sounds so much easier to put her on Neocate and let me eat whatever I can eat. We had just gotten to the point that we could open up the food gates and mine have closed down. =( I tend to blame everything on what I eat and pass along to her. But I have also realized that she has many of the same chemical issues that H and I have. She reacts to perfumes, soaps, food smells, etc. Rotten genes, I guess.
Just an update from this corner. And the new girl's name is G, by the way!

Well, true to form, our second daughter is a screamer as well. I won't be posting much as she is not sleeping well, wants to eat a lot (unless she is refluxing and refusing to eat) and always wants to be held. She seems to have some of the same issues that H and I have and has the dreaded GI reflux as well. So, don't look for posts as frequently from this corner of the world.
