Hello!!

It's ben forever since I've posted so thought I'd come out of lurking and post a hello.

THings are going really well. max will be 7 months on the 13th and is growing like a weed. He was 17 lbs at his 6 months appointment, I don't recall his length. He's been much healthier than DS1. DS1 already had a couple ear infections under his belt at this age and so far nothing from Max.

BFing is going really well. I started taking Domperidone several weeks ago due to low supply. I just wasn't pumping enough at work. I am so greatful for this drug!! We would be supplementing with formula if it weren't for the domperidone. We had started supplementing DS1 with formula at 3 months and stopped BFing all together at 6 months. So far DS1 hasn't had formula since he was about a week old and we were having to supplement with formula at birth. So happy!!!

Max is such a loud happy baby. He goes from 0 to PO'd in 0.002 seconds. There is no in between with him. He's either very happy or very PO'd. So different than DS1. He rolls over from front to back and vice versa and sits up on his own. His motor skills are really well. Reaches and grabs things and brings them to his mouth all the time. We've had 0 sign of teeth. He chews on everything, has been since he was about 3 months old, but that's about it. No bumps, pain or anything. He shows no sign of wanting to crawl yet but I'm not really concerned about that. Every baby is different and grows at their own rate.

Not sure how many of you recall but Max was born with a head full of hair. He's already had 2 haircuts! Everyone told me it would fall out but none of it did!

Not much else going on in our family. Alex (ds1) still loves his brother to death.

How is everyone else doing?

First off, I have a baby crush on Max, he is sooooo cute! I love seeing his pictures! HIs hair is amazing! I love having two little boys, and it looks like your little boys love having each other!

Can I ask how you got the Domperidone? Has it really helped? I only have about 16 oz of pumped BM a day for Ben, the rest he nurses, but I still feel like he's fussy at day care because of the lack of milk. Some times I'll get up at 2 or 3 at night to pump just so I have the 16 oz for the day.

Other then the milk supply issue, We are doing good as well! Ben is crawling now, so that's no fun with my 3 year olds toys being around, but we'll live. He's eating more veggies much to my surprise! all in all Im looking forward to better weather so I can bring Ben outside more. Smile

Yes! The domperidone really does work! I take 3pills 3 times a day. It's a miracle drug in my opinion.
