Thank you

Thanks, everyone, for the nice thoughts and advice in response to my last post.

We saw the dr on Thursday--no Thanksgiving in France*--and while Soëlie still hasn't gained enough weight to suit him, he was happy with her state of health. She is active and alert despite her small size, so he is giving us 10 more days for her growth spurt to kick in before we'll start talking supplementing her feeds with formula. 

So, this year, I'm thankful to have a healthy baby girl, a wonderfu,l loving husband who keeps me from full-blown panic, and a supportive, caring group of friends.  ::hugs all around::

* J and I had a mini-Thanksgiving meal but with lots of thankfulness.  And there was snow. Second time this year. Today it is snowing again...and sticking!!!! Stick! Stick! Stick! :D

So sorry to miss your last entry!

I wanted to say, if you enjoy nursing, let Soëlle nurse often--if this is convenient for you. That way you will still get to enjoy that very intense cuddling. Nursing curled up in bed with lots of blankets on you can be cosy and relaxing, and if you're relaxed, the milk flows better. Sometimes it takes a while for babies to get the hang of effective nursing.

I love your new icon, by the way.

Sending lots of hugs and positive thoughts. I know it hurts to think that you might not be able to provide everything your daughter needs right now; but lots of babies grow up very happy and healthy on just formula, and you are both getting that wonderful nursing time too. In a few weeks, a month max, no matter what happens, all of this will be behind you and you'll look back on it and think "That wasn't so bad..."

We had a Sabbath-Thanksgiving dinner last night. It's our night to be grateful to the USA for being a great place to have come from, and for treating our ancestors much better than any of the other places they wandered...

We had a little snow on Thanksgiving too, our first of the season. *hugs*

Glad to hear things aren't so dire with the weight -- maybe she's just destined to be an itty bitty.

Just caught up on lj...
I'm glad that the Dr was able to reassure you, and that she's alert and doing well. I'll keep my fingers crossed that she continues to gain weight and gets the Buddha belly all babies should have *G*
