Last night after everyone went to bed and I was changing DS's diaper, he smiled!
Sooo adorable and of course we've been trying to get him to repeat it to no avail today.:)
He's one month today---boy how time flies!!
my pp period didn't really come back until 2.5yrs pp with DD & DS1--and with both i started taking special herbal supps and doing dietary changes to jump-start things...thus quite a spell spent in the ttc forum. :)
iowaorganic--love that idea about the little light! i'm trying out a book light clipped to our currently-unused cosleeper (heehee) and i switch it on whenever ds has a tough time latching on. what a great alternative to the brighter light i was keeping on all night long for this very purpose!
at 3wks pp it started to hit me and today i am really feeling t-i-r-e-d!
days 1-15 were spent lying-in. ds is still sleeping good stretches at night, and co-sleeping so i'm partially waking to nurse & fully waking for a change or two during the night.
i've been getting one nap a day--sometimes it is 20min and others 1hr. so i guess i'm thinking that i shouldn't be so tired but i know that it is valid w/interuppted sleep and all of the pp...
Yes, DS has baby acne, too--mostly on the fact and upper chest: the areas that contact with my skin and spit-up and breastmilk. I think I'll start wiping him off like redbird, a little more frequently than I am now. Also, about the witchhazel--is the drugstore version OK for babie's face? I'm also wondering about Calendula Hydrosal...from MRH...we use it for lots of things!
hi mamas:) hope you all are enjoying your weekend!
i am wearing DS2 almost all day long. my go-to carry/carrier is the newborn hug hold in a stretchy wrap. he loves it! when i'm in the shower or otherwise unable to carry, which isn't much, i give put him in the baby lounger right in the bathroom with me, etc. also, dd loves to hold him, and i actually cleaned out the fridge the other day while she did that in the next room!
i'm really enjoying the stretchy...
DS2 has a peeling scalp & just lost a bunch of hair in the last 3 days--he looks bald in front! Now, I had this w/ my last two but this seems more sudden and he seemed to have a more even thatch of hair. Don't know why I'm surprised!
Do any of you remember when the hair grows back?
He is Adorable either way, though!
