Fawndew on Saturday

It is really hard figuring out how much to supplement and how to keep milk coming in from Mom. For us it is impossible to spend time milking mom just because of everything else going on this week. Thursday baby lost weight again AND of course I had my appt. in Colorado Springs. But Fawndew was better, so you want baby to nurse more & increase milk production. He did get supplemented 4 times Thursday, and Friday gained weight. Friday we supplemented 3 times and this morning baby had gained over a pound. Mom still has milk & he is still nursing. Mom's bag feels pretty normal now. So we'll see, maybe supplement twice today, or three time smaller amounts.....................................I think perhaps we are on more of an uphill trend here.

"Fawndew". Very clever.

It was partly Sandi's idea. We wanted something related to the "fawn" coloring ---- like Nutmeg, etc. This was before we added DWFF to our animals names (D & W Fiber Farm). Anyway Sandi suggested fondue.........and I immediately thought of Fawn..... then adding the do......but you cannot do. "Fawndo" as people would pronounce it wrong. So I went with Fawn dew & cominbed it to Fawndew...............obviously pronounced correctly.
