Ugh now I feel better about watching TV... It is cat in the hat followed by super why every morning for my toddler. But hey at least he learns something, he totally knows the letters now... And later on I let him watch Sesame Street - he loves it too mcuh and it gives me time to eat, cook, clean and such. DH has his paternity leave of 10 days now which will end on Sunday (military counts weekend days as work days, so the 10 days include Saturday and Sunday). We have been so ridiculously busy with remodeling the kitchen (what was I thinking...)... And all but DH had been sick recently with a cold, DD still coughs up mucus that originates from her nose (gross I know, it's like a postnasal drip and then comes out with spit-up)... At least she is gaining well, she weighed 9lb 6oz at 4 weeks which is a full 3 pounds over her birth weight. I have no idea how much she weighs now at 6.5 weeks, everybody says she looks tiny still, but she definitely has hamster cheeks and about 3 chins now. ;)
I had mastitis 3 weeks ago which was treated with 10 days of Amoxocilin, at quite a high dosage. I took 3 probiotics pills every day to prevent thrush and ate my stoneyfield yogurt religiously, luckily it worked out. Just as I finished the abxs though we all got that viral cold, yikes. Not to mention that RSV is going around in town and I already know two little girls who were hospitalized for it within the past 2 weeks, one ended up with pneumonia, but recovered fully.
@ Trekking: I hated gdiapers with DS, they wick, leak and the liner gets dirty with every usage. DD wore sposies for the first two weeks, size preemie as the cord hadn't come off yet and all the CDs were way too big. She now wears infant prefolds, folded over in the back a little and fastened with a Snappi. I use Bummi Superbrite covers and my homemade covers which resemble Thirsties sized covers. I do have a Thirsties XS but that is way too baggy still. I don't like the fit of Prorap newborn, I find it too tall yet not wide enough around the tummy. Our BG XS and Dreameze S fit her now, so that's nice. I can't wait until the one size diapers will fit her - we have a mix of BG 4.0 (can't fathom those fitting her for a long time even on the smallest setting, they are huge), Coolababy, Sunbaby and a couple sized Fuzzibunz and Drybees (size S looks like it will fit from 3-12 months, those S sizes are huge!). I have a feeling one size diapers will only fit large newborns and newborns that gain really fast. We have absolutely no leaks with prefolds and covers, and DD wears onesies all the time. We only had leaks with the sposies (up the back).
