I Would Rather Go Through Labor Without Pain Meds Again...

Than to endure another mastitis infection like I have right now. Today has been one of the most painful days of my life, but after 2 doses of medication I think I'm starting to feel better.

On another note...she still has not pooped. 5 Days and counting. The Dr. said I can give her prune juice, I just don't know that I want to do that to a week old baby!

Maybe you should just drink the prune juice and take some stool softeners. I did that because Tatum was like that and it just passed through my breast milk to the baby. I don't know if I would want to give a week old baby prune juice. That just doesn't seem right to me lol.

I had mastitis when Tatum was around a week old too. I had a high fever, breast feeding really sucked and then it was painfull on top of it. I didn't go to the doctor, but I still had my vicodin that I was taking from my horrible c-section, so that helped some. I got over it in like 3-4 days after pumping a ton on the infected side. SO PAINFUL!

Can we come out on Tues to see you guys? I'm thinking right after Corbin gets out of school at 10:45..we'll just leave for your house if that's alright??
