I just wanted to send a quick thanks to everyone who wrote me. Abby is doing much better, yesterday and today. Her poop is firming up and not as frequent and she still is peeing a lot so we've avoided dehydration. We started tracking her diapers because yesterday they were fewer and far between but once we saw the frequency and what she was doing we realized it's a normal pattern.
Also, I was very excited about this, this morning in yet another attempt to get Abigail to eat without the nipple shield I attempted some new positions with pillows. We did have a minor disagreement a few times but she did latch on and she ended up eating from 8 until 10am. I went back and forth with the nipple shield but about 50% was without. We had some time in there to play and I changed her twice but she actually stayed awake and once she started getting tired/cranky we went back to the football hold. She finally went down for her morning nap and woke up briefly because she wanted to be held but fell back asleep within a few minutes once I picked her up. I was very proud of us both.
