The week we left for our vacation, Olivia decided to change things up. She started a nursing strike, making the trip a little more complicated, and I think she’s started teething!!
1) Nursing strike: I feel like I spent half of my trip enjoying Hawaii and the other half pumping then feeding her! To top it all off, my milk supply had decreased and she lost a little bit of weight. In an effort to bolster the supply, I was making an effort to pump often. To make sure we had enough milk in a bottle for Olivia, I even had to pump in a public restroom in LAX…gross! Could you imagine standing in a public restroom and pumping? Maybe some have already done this?
2) Teething: We really think she’s teething b/c she’s started chewing on her pacifier. Also, when she takes my finger she’s biting down on it now, and she has pretty strong gums for a 3 month-old!
3) Just today, we heard her whine for the first time and she even created a different cry to go with it. However, she stopped as soon as I took her sweater off, so maybe it was merely her “I’m too hot” cry? We will have to follow-up on this one.
