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!

Another Screamer

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.

So much for July 10th

Baby Rutledge wasn't waiting for July 10th. Labor began at 9pm-ish on June 29th, 2009. Our second daughter was born at 1:07am on June 30th, 2009. So without further delay...
