Is our existence actually luck derived? Or should Greg be thanking the HF moderators for our being?

I think that can be normal -losing body weight after birth for larger babies. No? A doctor/nurse may know this better, though.

The weight loss is completely normal. I'm guessing they'll hold you there until the weight stabilizes though. I assume you haven't been discharged yet?

I don't know how you can argue against a causally connected universe, except maybe by arguing for a completely random universe. In either case, free will is an illussion and we are just part of the universe unfolding itself. So, no need to thank the mods.

Weight loss is normal. We lost 6% in the hospital, then they sent us home. But in the 16 hours since then she's lost 4% more, which is faster than ideal.

The breastfeeding clinic says we're doing it right, but she's just not sucking.

Too sleepy to eat, too hungry to stay awake. Been there. Get a cold wash cloth, and use it if she falls asleep early in a feed.

We also had latching on problems early on, that lead to wife milf production dropping. Then she got milk production meds. That helped. But then she started producing too much and would like choke the baby/squirt milk in its eye. Good times. There's definitely an adaptation period.

Is your wife's milk production good? I'd suggest pumping what the baby doesn't eat to stimulate production and even giving her some bottle feedings (of the pumped milk -formula soon enough if she seems still hungry) if things don't pick up. Then again, maybe doctors/nurses are better at breastfeeding advice than dudes on a hockey forum.

Well, with the pointy end of the nail sticking out. If the nail is completely inserted in the stick, it's kinda pointless.

Sounds like my 6 yo. Luckily both were/are big babies so losing a pound isn't thst big a deal as it could be. She never learned to latch. Only liked the bottle, so it was pumping and formula for her. My last one completely rejected the bottle. All kids are different. You and the wife just have to find what works

It was advice given to me, so although I didn't get an admission, I'm sure they did it to their kids.

The breast feeding Nazis just gave her formula again. She drank a lot and now seems happy.

Yeah, we have to figure out a better latch. Maybe that tube on the breast will work.

They're slightly worried about an infection at the umbilical cord, so we got admitted again. Fun times.

On the finger it was really easy. Probably not as easy as a bottle, but not far off. I gather the dexterity required to do it on the boob is more of a challenge.

It totally worked, but it's basically a two person setup, so you're both up every 3 hours until your kid figures out how to latch.

Tube on the breast?

And, greg, take it from somebody prone to anxiety. Newborns are scary and demanding unlike anything else. The stakes are so high, you don't sleep, exhausted beyond words...it can be overwhelming when things don't go well. But, i've found the buggers to be pretty freaking resistant. They are pretty tough, not as fragile as we think. It can be a rough ride, but eventually things fall in order. Somewhat. You can do it, Greg!

I say fuck it at that stage and go with pumping and bottle and formula if the kids seems more full with that.

You're only sacrificing like 4-5 IQ points or something and some anti-bodies and whatnot. Banana traded that in for some sleep in no time.

Quitter. Plus if you stick to the breast, you'll get better sleeps, than if you give into the bottle.

Tell the wife not to switch boobs during feeding. They fuck this up and suggest it. But the foremilk is all water.

But this advice is for later...right now its all good stuff.

I don't really like newborns that much, now that I think of it. I mean, they are kinda cute (they look like monkeys with their lanky limbs and whatnot) and you do get quite a kick from thinking this is your kid and seeing them develop -but I found every age got better than the last. Up until they turn 6. That seems to be the apex. Then, it's all downhill.

I remember being really amazed that I never dropped the baby. You are so tired, woken up by screaming and getting up in a confused haze with your mind in a nether region for a few minutes and handling the baby loads in that type of setting. I was petrified of dropping it at some point. Seemed very likely to me.

Don't drop the baby, greg!

I'm curious, joe, how did the alcohol babies turn out? Albeit it's probably hard to distinguish between what's caused by alcohol and what's caused generally by parents that would give alcohol to babies.

If a new mother presses her nipples together until they latch, milk will come out of pores in all directions.
