elisheva - don't worry too much about your dd's weight. Boys and girls are very very different i'm learning with weight. dd1 and dd2 were barely 9 lbs at 6 weeks and they started out weighing more then ds. they also ate a lot less then ds too. starting out with girls it shocked me how much a baby can eat when ds was born. I know I would have freaked out if the order was different.
rrs - that sounds scary!! I hope everyone gets feeling better.
Yep, this is true for us too. Dd ate every 3 hours all day and did a 5-6 hour stretch at night starting around 2 weeks. Ds, 3 weeks now, can barely manage 3 hours during the day (often 2) and does 3, MAYBE 4 at night. He eats A LOT more
Matthew is 3 weeks tomorrow. We don't go back to our pedi until 2 months because he was a health, happy, chunky monkey at 1 week so she cut us loose He's very content, doesn't really cry, just yells at me when he's hungry or if I change his diaper (he hates that). He eats a lot, but otherwise he's doing great. He is making eye contact, cooing a little...puts himself to sleep (so cool)...can't complain too much.
Feel a thousand times better than I did pp with dd. I don't know why, but emotionally I'm just way happier and less emotional. I'm tired, my neck is sore (bad nursing posture most likely), still bleeding...but otherwise good. Oh, and I was horribly anemic apparently when prego with ds so now I'm on a huge iron supp. every day and my energy is shockingly improved.
Busy busy with 2 kiddos....
