Not that I know of. We are doing well. starting to get a bit of a routine down and getting more sleep finally. Carter has been having digestive issues so I am on a no dairy no soy diet. I'm a little bummed but hopefully this new diet will help him feel better. I just moved back to Colorado with my husband and we are happy to be around family.I am finally starting to recover from labor and delivery and my ppd. Still on medications for it but hoping to wean off them soon. Carter is growing so fast he's already 16 pounds and 25 inches long. Other than his digestive issues he's very healthy and learning a lot. It's been really fun lately since he has started to smile and laugh. He Is such a happy baby it's ridiculous how entertaining he is. He has started to grab at his toys and put things his mouth already. I hope you and all your babies are doing well.
Kelly - that's great to hear! glad you're doing well. 16 lbs! Wow!
Ellie is about 13 lbs now. I've been worried about my supply since her weight gain slowed down but the Dr isn't worried about it. She's doing well though. We found her face smooshed against the side of her bassinet one night so we moved her to her room and crib and (knock on wood) she's been sleeping 7-9 hrs straight every night. We swaddle her in a halo sleepsack swaddle because she flails her arms around and claws at her face like an animal so we're going to have to figure out how to stop using that soon. I put a shirt that I wore under her crib sheet and I think it helped. She's a 20 minute catnapper during the day but hopefully she'll outgrow that. She also started refusing bottles and pacifiers so there's another hurdle we need to jump. And oh yea... I thought she had an ear infection last week because she was grabbing her ears but Dr says its early teething. Other than that we're peachy :-)
yea sigh so happy you and your family are doing well. Carter started with refusing bottles too. So far we haven't had any luck for about a month. we recently were able to move Carter from sleeping in his swing to his crib. He did pretty well last week sleeping from about 8 p.m. 2 3am and then getting up for the day around 630 a.m.. That's a vast improvement from what he was doing before. This week has been a little tough as we are traveling at the moment. Carter also is king of the cat nap. He naps about 20 to 30 minutes at a time during the day so we are working on getting him to nap longer. If you have any tips let me know.
Hi ladies!! Nice to hear from you!!! Glad you're well.
There is a nice little follow on group here ***December Snowflakes 2012 Parenting*** not all the ladies were december but we are similar stages. Not many post so it's a nice group with lots of good advice and a place to moan!!
How's everyone doing? Ethan is currently napping I've just gotten over a bout of sickness and that was hard to deal with a baby and being violently ill.
got a few photos yesterday which my friend did for me so thought id finally upload some.
Ethan is now 14lbs, (15+4 weeks,) n has an MRI next week to see how his brain condition is doing. He typically sleeps 12-6.30ish without a feed now. How is the breastfeeding going for everyone? Still doing it??
cant believe we start weaning soon....i don't wanna! Lol. Never thought id be so sentimental but I love breastfeeding him.
Ts not letting me upload from my mob so ill update photo later
hi everyone hi nicki - I hope ethans brain scan goes well!
So update from me on Connor - he is doing great although I seem to have hit a sticky patch this week. I was combi feeding from 12 weeks, but in the past 2 weeks I decided to swtich completely to formula (although I agree nicki i did love bf - just wish it wasnt as often as I was doing it - connor is just a big boy and it was killing me!)
Anyway, I was working hard to establish a routine of 4-hourly feeds but that doesnt seem to ahve worked, because instead of a baby that went to bed at 7ish and slept til 6 with just one feed in the night at 3am, I now have a baby that goes to bed at 7am and sleeps to 11.30pm and then wakes at 5am for the day! its killing me!
Plus ive had the most horrendous cold, sore throat and cough this week and so has connor and with my husband away its doubly hard.
Anyway we do have some pictures of him and us that I love which id like to share;e
Nicki - I was thinking of you yesterday and wondering how youve been Hope Ethan's scan goes well!
Kelly - GORGEOUS baby!!! We went through a rough patch as well where Ellie was eating every 1.5-2 hrs and waking up 6 times at night but now we're feeding every 2 hours and sleeping 7-9 hrs at night. Hopefully things will get better!!
Nicki, hope all goes well. Can't wait to see the pics. I have Carter's two and three month old sessions still waiting to be edited. I'm so behind! And now I have his four month session to shoot so I'll have three sessions to finish editing and no time to do them. I do a shoot every month with him.
KellyC, great photos! Your baby is seriously so gorgeous! Love it.
