Sadly, we have made no progress on the nursing front. I’m not really sure what else to try or when to give up pumping, but I wanted to pop in and at least give an update.
Good news is … the chiropractor helped Jemma’s ear infection! We went in on Monday and Wednesday for ear and neck adjustments to help drain the fluid. On Friday she had her 12 month wellness visit (even though she is almost 13 months) and the infection was gone. Praise the Lord! I was feeling pretty nervous about telling our pediatrician that we decided to forgo the antibiotics after our visit on Monday (we didn’t see our normal doctor on Monday, just the on-call doctor who is apparently medicine happy). Our regular doctor, Dr. Kevin, was quite supportive of the chiropractor route and even went as far as to say that often times an antibiotic cures one problem, but creates a bunch of others that are just as bad like upset tummies, bad gut flora, and diarrhea.
Jemma is finally on the growth chart at 95% for height and weight :) I do think she has lost some weight since her strike, but she is still very healthy and Dr. Kevin isn’t concerned about her strike/weaning.
