Doctor Visit

Today Scott and I made our first outing with Mr. Campbell with a trip to the pediatricians office for our first little checkup!
Scott and I gave ourselves 2 hours to get ready and we still ended up being a few minutes late. Getting Campbell in his car seat takes us forever to do right now. We've only used it for him twice now and he's so little and we're never sure if we're doing it right. The nurse at the pediatrician's office assured us that he's in there correctly. Everything about having a baby is definitely a learning experience!!
The appointment went really well. Campbell's weight has dropped down to 5 pounds, 10 ounces which doesn't concern the doctor at all since he's a breastfed baby. My milk came in yesterday (is that TMI?) so the doctor expects Campbell to gain about an ounce a day now. He was such a good boy during his appointment and didn't cry which made me such a proud Momma! His jaundice level was a little high so we have to go back tomorrow to check it again and see if it's come down. I'm hoping it will since he's been eating really well and has had good poops the last two days. What has this blog come to that I'm talking about pooping and breast milk now? I promise I won't always do that.
Nursing is even better today than it was yesterday. Campbell and I are both really starting to get the hang of it. Now I'm exhausted and need to crash. Waking up every 2-3 hours and being up for about 45 minutes during that time is definitely catching up with me. I'm going to call it a day. Until tomorrow (maybe).....


  1. Now that your milk has come in it will be so much better. I will be praying about the jaundice. :) Congrats Momma.

    1. Thanks Tess! Yes, having my milk come in has made a night and day difference!
