The Fry is 1 week old and couldn't be more adorable. Well, letting us sleep for more than an hour at a time would raise his cherubian status quite a bit. According to the lactation consultant we saw for the 2nd time yesterday, my milk volume has not increased yet to the level he needs. So she's put us on a 2 hour feeding schedule and a Fenugreek (sp?) and Blessed Thistle herbal combo that's supposed to do the trick. In the meantime we're supplementing with formula and whatever pumped breastmilk I can provide. Which Daddy likes since it means he can participate in feedings. Gramma went home Sunday amidst many grateful tears.

I'm finding it amazing how well you can function when sleep deprived....
