4 Month Post Partum and Baby Update - 1st Baby!

Hi Bellas,

I can't believe I'm sharing with you baby girl's 4 month update.  She's grown into a little munchkin that giggles only wants to be held outward and is a whopping 13 pounds.  I also give you update on my post partum weight journey and share some painful obstacles.  Check it out!

Mommy Update

  • Keto Diet - I'm trying to lose weight after I gained 3 pounds from the Holidays to make it back to my pre-pregnancy weight and after that the extra 20 pounds I gained after my miscarriage last year.  I'm researching how this diet affects breastfeeding.
  • Clogged Milk Ducts and Milk Blister - I dealt with some hard lumps on my breast which were clogged ducts.  Applying a heating pad and massaging the lumps out while breastfeeding helped but I'm still left with a painful milk blister on my nipple.  I'm trying natural remedies, wish me luck!

Baby Update
  • New Clothes - We're about to transition baby girl into 3-6 month clothing, she's getting so big!
  • Giggles - Baby girl is giving us limited giggles, hopefully there's more to come!
  • Sleep Regression - Baby girl is waking up in the middle of the night which usually means an extra feeding or two.  Hopefully this is just a phase cuz Momma is tired.
  • Kinedu App - This app is great for doing development exercises.  We're currently playing peekaboo.
  • 4 Month Dr. Appointment - Baby girl is officially 13.2 pounds and 24 inches, starting to teeth but doing well!
