Warning... do not read this post if you don't want to hear about poop.
Today we open with a pop quiz.
Question: What do green baby poop and maternal bonding have in common?
Answer: Nothing. It is very difficult for the two to coexist.
Reasoning: Instead of the brownish-mustard kinda poop that most bf (breast fed) babies have, Brielle has had some very green poops lately. After doing some research I found out that green poops, from bf babies, are not good.
Green poops = (1) too much formilk/hindmilk (not important terminology unless you are bfing), (2) an allergy to something mom is eating/drinking, or (3) a sign that baby has a virus. Most importantly, green poops = very fussy baby. And, it is extremely to bond with a very fussy baby.
We think that she might have either had a virus or maybe she is allergic to the milk that I am drinking... which isn't a far stretch since her brother has a cow's milk intolerance.
So, I cut out milk in my diet starting last Friday. So far she is much happier. Poops are greener... and she is smiling and sleeping better... ahem... which means that I am also smiling and sleeping better.
Coming Tomorrow... some of my personal product and book reviews.
