She played us for fools

Trixie is a very sneaky baby. After a second day of unusual feeding data, we now realize that the feeding spike reported earlier is not an accurate representation of Trixie’s milk intake. She’s been using Jennifer as a human pacifier, latching on for 20-30 minutes at a time but not swallowing anything. Unfortunately for ‘little miss dairy queen’, the data revealed the statistical anomaly and allowed us to regain the upper hand… for now.

In response we have started rigorously enforcing her feeding habits — if she starts fruiting around or dozes off, she’s outta there! On a related note, I have now started tracking her waste products since measuring the intake has proven unreliable.

    I don’t know if you are reading these old comments, but a feeding spike at 3 weeks old is completely normal and is a growth spurt. I haven’t gotten that far in the blog yet, but she probably had more at 6 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months. The result of these growth spurts is to increase Mommy’s milk supply.

    Aagh! She speaks!

    Trixie, my daughter’s just a few days younger than you, and it was awesome seeing and comparing how you guys both grew. I wondered how you’d feel about having your story on a website, though, when you were older — in fact that’s why I stopped reading, after a while: in case you decided you didn’t like it, when you grew up. So I’m glad you like the blog your dad made.

    I’ve just passed the link on to a friend who has a 1-month-old daughter. The baby’s name is Eleanor. My friend works at Google and loves all these graphs and measurements your dad made.
