What did our weekend entail? Fever! Chills! Fatigue! Nasuea and vomiting! A trip to the ER! Heating pads and attempts at sleep! What does all that sound like? Yes, another bout of mastitis. My fourth case to be exact. Why do i keep being plagued with breast infections? No idea. The docs can't figure it out either. But operation get Evie weaned is in effect. Lets just say she's not all Miss-compliant about it. She is doing better on baby cereal, and yesterday even ate some baby peaches. But switching to the bottle? Yeah right. Michael's method is holding the back of her head and pouring formula down her throat. Works sometimes. She usually screams and gags through the whole scenario. But even though i continue to nurse her, my milk supply is wayyyy low. Low enough that she's not satisfied after a feeding and then is super-fussy all day. I think it dwindled because i was dehydrated from fevers and vomiting on Saturday, and then not eating much on Sunday for fear of vomiting again. Is there anything worse than vomiting? Ugh i hate it. After switching antibiotics i finally feel more human again. Hopefully this upcoming weekend will be more pleasant. Wish us luck in forced-weaning!

I'm so sorry, Laurie! Feel better--I'll be praying Evie starts taking a bottle!

Doesn't sound like you are having much least you know what you have to do now and Lil Evi will adjust in short order. God Bless, Vince
