Breakfast was oatmeal, goji berry tea, and a tea that helps with getting rid of lochia. We waited until 4 days postpartum to start the red blood cell production and decreasing anemia first. This tea is taken for 7 days daily.
For lunch, I had leftover soup from last night and added pork in.
For dinner, I had pork, eggs, bok choy, noodles and goji berries soup.
I started to feel more weak today compared for the first couple of days. I am resting quite a bit and I have to thank my mom mostly for making all this delicious food. This one month postpartum period is an important time for healing.
We are entering day 5 of life for my son. Colostrum has transitioned to milk. He gained 3 ounces in from day 3 to 4 reaching a low weight of 7 pounds. He does eat and poop a lot and his latch has been great so I really cannot complain. Since our first son had high bilirubin levels (thus his jaundice was above 20), he needed to go to the hospital for phototherapy. So far with the second son, his bilirubin levels are lower so it is unlikely that we will need phototherapy this time around!
