Friends

I had a lovely visit yesterday with Adriana and Janice from church. It was so nice to have good company, help folding laundry, food for dinner (and extras for today and tomorrow), and a little break from holding the baby.

I have an appointment next Wednesday with a lactation consultant. (She knows Claire and I from the hospital.) Today I did some strategizing and figured out that I can detect when Claire is starting to get hungry, pump one breast briefly to get the milk flowing and then put on the nipple shield and try to nurse. I did this three times today with success during one feeding. She lost some milk out of the side of her mouth though and her sleave was all wet. Hmmm.

I left you a phone message this morning regarding a book that Jill liked about integrating baby into family routines. I remember reading it and wishing I'd been aware of some of the ideas when Mark & Jill were infants. You may find it helpful, and I'm sure Auntie Jill would love to be of service for her big brother's family. Love and hugs, Nanna Pennie
