Midwife Postpartum Appointment

Well, for all those who are curious, I'll answer the question I've been getting for weeks - Karrots weighs 12 lbs. 12 oz. (14 oz. with clothes and diaper so 12 is a guess).

For my nipple she recommends doing the salt bath with sea salt and then using Neosporin, which she argues is the same consistancy as Lanolin, i.e. it will be easy to wipe off. She's also in agreement with doing the pumping and bottle.

My tear's just about healed except a little abrasion which she put silver nitrate on to speed up recovery. She wants to see me back in a week.

Thank you, Gina, for coming with me and looking after our little angel. You rock!
