It’s been a whole month of being Shiloh’s mama. I can’t believe how fast time has flown by. Scottie is the best big sister to “her baby.” I can’t believe I’m a mama to TWO girls. I’m seriously just now getting used to the fact that she’s a girl😂. I totally thought she was going to be a boy. It was the best surprise ever. It’s been so fun seeing her in all of Scotland’s clothes from when she was a newborn.
Our days have been filled with lots of skin to skin cuddles, naps and taking pictures of her round the clock because I can’t get enough of her.
Shiloh has been a pretty dang good sleeper since bringing her home and nurses like a champ, which has been great. She’s already ten and a half pounds😮. Our only struggle with her so far has been her excessive amount of spitting up and tummy troubles which brings me to our next topic…. I think she may sensitive to dairy.
I was a total vegetarian from age 12-18. I started eating seafood and occasionally pork at 18 but I still don’t eat any other meat. I am just not a fan and it really hurts my stomach; that being said, I have cut out dairy starting this week and have basically become a vegan overnight. Since I’m breastfeeding Shi I decided to cut out dairy to see if that helps her tummy problems. I didn’t realize just how much dairy I eat until now.
I started following a few bloggers on Instagram that eat plant based diets and are nursing babies for some guidance. The tricky part is making sure I get enough calories to keep my milk supply up so I can keep nursing Shiloh. I’d love any tips, tricks, or references if y’all have any as well. I’ll keep y’all posted on if cutting dairy from my diet helps her.
