Neuro, everyone told me nursing tops were a waste. Now, with #3, I don't really need one, but when I broke down and bought a couple of nice, flattering tops (Majamas and Japanese weekend), it made nursing in public so much easier. I like them still, but I only have 3, so the rest of the time I wear a tank top under my shirt (not a nursing tank, either).
Three weeks is not very much. Go easy on yourself. It takes a while to get the hang of everything. I pushed too hard to get back to "normal" and succumbed to pressure with #1 and 2 to get out of the house, and with #3, I take every opportunity to just hang out with the baby at home without the stress of the carseat and her hating my sling. And there are 5 of us in a 1 bedroom apartment! It can get nuts, but it's easier than on-the-fly diaper changes. I know those days are coming, but I'm putting them off as much as possible.
Sorry about the construction. That's so irritating!
On the sleep thing, DS only slept 2 hours max at a time until I stopped eating the food that was hurting his tummy (rice). How are Sebastian's poops? If they're mucousy, you might think about playing with your diet. Also, Molly sleeps so much better with the humdifier on high and swaddled (even though she didn't like swaddling at first) in a warm blanket, in her carseat, with a blanket on top. It takes a while to figure out what they need. Hope you get some rest! Molly slept 8 hours last nigh but she's sick and I was so exhausted I didn't even wake uypu to check on her!
We found an apartment! Looks like we'll move in 3 weeks or so. How can I pack with 2 wild children and a newborn? Ugh. And, it's a 2nd floor walkup with no washer/dryer (they have a facility, but it's 3 flights of stairs and a long walk), but I love it otherwise. Oh, and no dishwasher. Hmmm. But, otherwise, it's great!
Baby is still really snuffly. She HATES her carseat and the sling. She screams bloody murder. Considering that a great deal of my life is spent in the car taking people from here to there, she's not really a fan of us.
How much is it normal for babies to sleep?
