Update...

SO I finally got some sleep...turns out it was a let down problem (http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/fast-letdown.html). I started trying to nurse on one side and things seem to be a bit better - she's not as gassy and definitely sleeps better. I just took her into the public health centre here and had her weighed and she seems to be doing great...she's at 9 pounds already. At this rate, I'm going to have a little chunker on my hands. SO thanks Jeni for the book suggestion, it's funny that you recommend Baby Wise, cause I swear it's my baby bible. Every time I have a spare minute I'm reading (and re-reading it) just to make sure I'm on track. I need a baby that will sleep. Jewel, I love your suggestion too of letting Ben take some of the night battles...I try to, but with his stupid wrist, he can hardly do anything with Hailey with out me hovering to make sure he doesn't drop her. His cast hopefully comes off in just a few weeks...so hopefully he can help more then. Anyway, Hailey's a little puker...likely due to the let down problem and I think. Anyway because of this she ends up getting lots of baths (or sponge baths depending on how good I feel). Anyway today after her bath Hailey asked me to do her hair like her dads...all curly and cute. So of course I listened and let her hair go curly - seriously who can resist a curly blonde baby?? I'll admit, I'm a sucker. Anyway, she gladly posed for one pic: ...but after checking herself out in the mirror she let her true emotions be known. Obviously I didn't do it right. Oh well, until she learns to do her own hair she's just going to have to deal with my styling skills. Sadly the curl doesn't stick around once her hair is dry though...it just ends up being a little mohawk/wave thing. Which is also too cute!
