As many of you know Joe and I decided to keep Lil Lieb’s name a secret until he made his earth side appearance. We put alot of thought into the names we chose. Obviously we chose Jude Aidan for a boy but most of you don’t know the girl name we chose. If Jude was a girl his name would have been Magdalen (Maggie) Ava.
Jude Aidan Lieb means “Praise”, “Fire”, “Love”
Magdalen Ava means “High Tower”, “Like a Bird”
Update on Breastfeeding
So it turns out I was starting to develop Mastitis (Mastitis means that the breast is inflamed, and there is swelling, redness, tenderness and pain.) Luckily through lots of research and informed friends I started taking actions to ward off this painful illness. Jillian gave me some herbal drop that I’m taking every hour. I’m drinking lots of water, taking warm showers, applying warm compresses, feeding Jude alot even though it hurts, trying to rest as much as possible. Hopefully I will start feeling much better tonight… Jude is already feeding and sleeping better. Now I’m dealing with cracked and bleeding nipples… hopefully it’s not because Jude isn’t latching on properly… it’s hard to tell but I think he’s doing alright. We’re trying different positons and applying nipple salve after each feeding. We’re also praying alot… hopefully we’ll start to get this thing down.
