Today is NikkiZ’s first check-up in the pediatrician’s office. We have never actually BEEN to the pediatrician’s office, so let’s hope we find it okay. Our pediatrician is very cool (so far) and hopefully NikkiZ will get a clean bill of health. I’m really hoping she’s gaining weight appropriately because that would then be a sign that my boobs are doing their job. Since she seems content and full after feedings and doesnt eat but every 2-3 hours, then I think they are doing just fine. But – I’ve experienced no leaking and no engorgement so I’m worried I will have minimal supply like I did with LilZ. I had such a minimal supply with LilZ that pumping was futile so I did nothing but nurse the first few months, and when I did get a job after his birth, my milk dried up. I don’t want to face that again this time, I want NikkiZ to enjoy my boobs as long as possible! That’s not too much to ask, is it?
Of course, MrZ and I were already discussing last night about how NikkiZ seems so advanced for her age. With the trying to stand up, and the laughing, and the trying to roll over. We have already convinced ourselves she’s a little prodigy child and we are preparing ourselves for the stress involved with raising a genius.
It’s a tough life to breed perfection, we know.
