By Sunday, she refused to nurse at all. When I'd try to nurse her, she'd violently shake her head from side to side. She wouldn't even try to latch. She'd scream constantly until she was absolutely hoarse and raspy. Nothing satisfied her, not even the pacifier. I just bawled because my milk was in and I couldn't feed or soothe my baby. I couldn't help her at all. I knew I had milk, but when I held her up, she'd just scream at the breast. It was one of the most frustrating experiences I've ever had. To get something into her, I pumped and *B* spoon fed her out of a medicine spoon.
We ended up taking her to the pediatrician Monday evening. It turns out she was severely dehydrated (shocker). She had lost a whole pound since birth. When he asked, we said she hadn't had a messy diaper in two days. After going over our records, it turned out it had been three days, and she was only four days old.
