I make tiny kids. My first child weighed only 4 lbs 13 oz and was born 4 weeks early. This baby weighed only 6 lbs 7 oz when she was born on my due date. Baby #1 was 16 inches long, and this baby was only 17 inches long. Tiny babies. For some reason this little one, Mina, is refusing to nurse all of a sudden. So, consequently she is losing weight. I had to supplement with formula over the weekend to get her weight back up (something I was not too happy about having to do) and will spend all day today with a lactation consultant to get her to stop drinking from a bottle and back on the breast.

It's not going to be easy, there will be lots of crying, tears, and screaming. But I'm hoping she'll give her nursing strike up so she can continue to get the healthy goodness that is breast milk. Wish me luck!
