Hi ladies! First, congratulations to all of the mommas who had babies this past week! I can't believe how many beautiful angels we have!
The time since Mirielle was born has been a whirlwind! Exactly one week ago from today we were on our way to the hospital.

I posted my birth story in the forum -- it was truly a wonderful experience so please check it out if you'd like

Mirielle lost too much weight since she was discharged and was jaundiced -- actually, she probably should never have been discharged when she was, but it ended up being a mixed blessing.

I had a bad hospital experience after her birth and wanted to leave as soon as possible. She wasn't latching, wasn't feeding well, but everyone kept telling me it wasn't a big deal. That first night in the hospital she cried a lot and her lips were so dry. I just knew something wasn't right, but yet I was told she was ok.

They let us go on Friday 4/25 with the caveat of having Miri see her pediatrician on Saturday. That ended up being a blessing -- the pediatrician said she was dehydrated and needed a billi blanket. I was really upset.

I've been pumping to feed her and she is eating like a champ now. She's doing a little better at breastfeeding but doesn't have the greatest latch. As of yesterday she is no longer needs the billi blanket, gained some weight back, is alert and just awesome.

I love her so much and she is a great baby! I've got the baby blues and that's not fun, but other than that I'm healing well. A photo of her from the other day when she was still a little yellow.

She is beautiful and I'm glad she's doing better! I'm struggling with emotions also, if you need to talk, I'm available.

Sorry you had a bad hospital experience! I also did not like the hospital experience after my first and I really think it contributed to my baby blues. This time was much better and so far I don't have any baby blues. Glad she is doing better! She is such a doll!

She is so cute! I want to share something since you mentioned baby blues. The holistic dr. I go to its very adamant that I continue to take my fish oil supplements during the third trimester and after delivery. He showed me a study that links baby blues and low DHA levels. The baby will take as much as he or she needs at the end of pregnancy, leaving the mother depleted. Not saying that is the cause in your specific case. I just thought I'd bring it up so everyone can consider adding the supplement if they don't already take it (he recommends a fish oil that totals 1000mgs on the back of the label). Glad your little angel is doing better. Can't wait to see more pics!

Thank you all!

And thanks for the fish oil suggestion. That is a great idea. My sister uses really purified, expensive stuff to treat my nephew's seizures and it has done wonders for him.
