    Hi ladies,

    just wanted to say hi and see how everyone is doing. I am doing much much better now and infact will return to work in a week.

    my baby girl is now 7 weeks old and she is amazing. she had some gas trouble but it is getting better. I breast fed her for 5 weeks but made the transition to formula a week ago since i wasnt making enough milk for her. Luckily she was able to make the transition just fine. she is growing well and even is on a set schedule for sleeping at night. I am able to get 4-5 hrs before i wake up each night. she is starting to smile which is the most wonderful sight in the world. I hate that i have to put her in daycare though. just the thought of it rips me apart.

    i hope all you ladies are doing well. congratulations to all the ladies with new births and good luck to everyone else.

    I'm the opposite of you. I wish I could afford daycare for my twins, LOL! They really are a handful sometimes when they both need to eat at the same time, or are both crying.

    Congrats on your girl starting to smile so early. My babies are smiling a little and cooing also. I wish they would do it all the time.

    I'm also having trouble making enough milk. I pump maybe 2 oz every 5-6 hours. What type of formula does your daughter eat? Mine are on Enfamil Alimentum and it stinks really bad, but they are spitting up a lot less.

    I'm glad to hear that you're doing better.

    Glad to hear you are doing well. I am sure it must be very hard to put the baby in daycare. I had terrible anxiety leaving my baby but happy that my mother in law is watching her. Congrats again to you on your beautiful, smiling baby. It goes so fast. Eliza is 4 1/2 mths already.
