Wow, I haven't been back to this DDC for a while! Paxton is doing well. He is a little bit past 2 months old now. Growing like a weed! DH and I keep saying that he is literally growing right before our eyes. He was born at 8 lbs, 9 oz and he is over 14 lbs already! He has outgrown all of his 0-3 mo clothes, many of his 3-6 month clothes are almost too small too. I have been scrambling to put away outgrown clothes and dig out (I have two older boys, so these are all hand me downs) 6-9 mo clothes, which is a little bit long on him, but at least he has room to stretch out, lol.
Our biggest issue right now is sleep. For a wk, he was starting to get into a routine of naps, but I don't know if it's b/c he is having a growth spurt or what, but this past wk was UNBEARABLE! He has been so fussy, wanting to be held ALL of the time. He will doze off on my shoulder (which btw is so sore, my entire neck and shoulder area are killing me, DH went for a 2 hr deep tissue massage), and then when I try to transfer him to his basinnet of crib, he wakes up crying. I'm exhausted b/c of this. I have two older kids and have to keep the household going, but find it so hard to do carrying a big lump of a baby around. He fusses when I wear him in a sling, which stinks, b/c before he was ok being worn, but now he just wants to be held. One other big issue is he HATES his carseat. This really stinks for me. I have to pick up and drop off my kids to and from school 2x a wk and also for other activities. I feel tense all of the time, b/c he cries when he is in his car seat, and then for small in and out trips, I would like to just take his car seat out and then pop it back in, but sometimes he fusses so much, I take him out, hold or wear him and then have to put him back in the seat, it's tiring.
As for nursing, he is doing well, BUT I think he is kind of a lazy nurser, esp at night. He will nurse a little, fall asleep and then wake up again to nurse, b/c he didn't fill up b/c he fell asleep last time. I can't complain too much, b/c he is sleep pretty well at night compared to my older two kids, but at the same time I'm just stretched so thin right now, b/c I have 2 other kids to take care of, kwim? He is also a very LOUD nurser. I don't know what is up, sometimes he clicks when he nurses, sometimes he doesn't. His latch is ok, I can't figure it out. Obviously, he is growing, BUT he is extremely gassy. It sounds like a firecracker went off every time he poops!
Oh and I wanted to ask. Is it normal for teething to begin already? He is drooling up a storm! I didn't remember my other two drooling this much, this early on!
