More Eating

First, Bill finally posted more pictures on Flickr so check out how big Molly Z is getting!

So, the breast milk situation had pretty much corrected itself, and my milk supply went down, which in turn was much easier on Molly's digestion. I was also a bit more comfortable because I wasn't so engorged (sorry to anyone who is uncomfortable with the discussion of bodily functions). I went back to feeding her one time per breast. This worked well for a while, but now we are back to where we started. My milk supply seems to have really increased again, and Molly is having digestion troubles again--she is having some diarrhea. She doesn't seem to be spitting up as much as she was, though. That might be because she is just getting a little older. I'm not sure why she would not have a corresponding increase in spit up with the other problems, but I am not going to wait to see if that eventually happens before I switch back to going two feedings per breast for a little while to decrease the supply again.

Today Bill left us for campus so I am on my own today with MZ. We will decide what to make for dinner and go to the grocery. How domestic of me!

Could it be the shots that are causing the change in her bowel movements? I can't wait to see you all next month. She looks so much bigger in the pictures than the last time I saw her. I'm at the cabin with Aunt Cathy, Aunt Susan and Steph and we all looked at the pictures.
Love you!

The shots are definitely causing a change in the pooping, but the milk situation is exacerbating it, I think. I'm sure it will all be normal again in a couple of days!
