Mom to Naya Jane

 Naya was born on July 24. She was a beautiful 7lb, seemingly healthy baby. My husband and I fell in love immediately. The only thing that was a little off was the fact that she had some feeding problems in the hospital and didn’t poop the first couple days. They told us not to worry about it and released us on the 25. We went home and started to get used to our new life. Unfortunately, Naya was still not eating or pooping. We took her to the pediatrician on July 26 and she gave her something to make her poop and told us to follow up with a lactation consultant about the eating. I told her it didn’t seem to be a breast feeding specific issue – Naya wasn’t interested in food at all – but we made the appointment anyway. We saw the lactation consultant on July 27 and she also found it odd that Naya had no interest in eating and encouraged us to go back to the pediatrician the next day. I should mention that during this time, we were forcing her to eat and she was spitting most of it up and still not pooping or peeing. We went back to the pediatrician on the 28th and they told us to increase feedings to every two hours, which we did to no avail. After she threw up every feeding that night, I had enough and we took her to the ER. [Read more…]
