Hmm, I have an Angelcare, but I hadn't considered using it before she was sleeping her room (which DH and I have decided won't happen in the foreseeable future). How is it with false alarms? I might set it up today so I get some cleaning done. I need to crawl around on the floor and bend over to get some stuff done, so wearing her won't really work. She did good again last night, woke up for an hour at 3:00 and then was up for the day at 6:30. Not bad, she was asleep by 10. I really hope this continues. I'm one of those people who requires ten hours usually to function, so this has been pretty rough. I'm glad that we are through with the first weeks of up every single hour. I'm getting stressed over my babes weight. The doctor had hoped she had gained more at her one month. She eats a lot, and I have been supplementing when she is done with the breast and starts screaming and banging her head against it. Usually she'll take an extra 3-4 oz of formula a few times a day. She just seems so little in comparison with all these other gainers. Her newborn diapers are still pretty big on her, and she's almost six weeks. We have lots of wet diapers, it has been a couple days without a bowel movement, but that seems pretty typical for this age. She's passing gas. Any BTDT moms with littler babes/slow gainers who came out unscathed? Reassure me, I started crying yesterday when DH was looking at some pictures of my friend's newborn and he commented how much bigger he was than Aurora.
Rosemary, I hope things get better with Iona soon. :(
