Hi everyone! I've been wanting to get back on here for a while, but somehow this life with a newborn has kept me quite busy!
Cindy-so excited that she's taking full feedings at the breast and that you can stop pumping! I know how exhausting that is. I did it with DS when we realized I was having supply issues.
Spring-Sorry you had to have his tounge tie redone again too. I hope this will make a big difference this time. Poor little guy!
Silly- I hope you are getting some better sleep! I keep moving DD between our bed and her moses basket that's on a stand by our bed. It's a double edged sword for us. On one hand she sleeps much better in the bed with us which helps with my sleep deprivation levels, but when I'm really sleep deprived, I tend to sleep so deeply that I don't feel aware enough of where she is in the bed for it to be safe so I put her back in her basket. I understand your nervousness about moving him out of your bed. I can move DD back and forth fairly easily. DS never slept unless he was right against me so not co-sleeping with him in the early months meant nobody in the house slept. I hope it's not too hard of a transition for you all. So sorry you have had mastitis. Very miserable! Hopefully some good sleep will help you get that cleared up and prevent it from happening again.
Pregnova-what a sweet picture! Darling little outfit! The ergo is warm with the insert, but that's been good around here recently since we've had some outdoor activities in the cold, but yes I dress her more lightly if she's going to be in the ergo.
AFM- DD turned 1 month old yesterday and DS turned 4. It was a big day at our house. It's been a crazy month dealing with parents/family. I came so close to kicking my parents out.......and then we all get really sick so they stayed even longer. DS ended up in the ER with a high fever and DD and I were quarentined away from him (which didn't work too well) for a week before his fever really went away. Finally we are all mostly well again for the moment, though sleep patterns have been disrupted and we're trying to get back to sleeping at night rather than all day. We have to get it together before DS goes back to school this week.
I'm loving the ergo too ..I managed to cook Thanksgiving dinner while nursing her in it and we've been nursing in stores and the like while walking around. The other day I realized I even answered the door nursing her in it. I do need more scoop necked tops though that I can pull down to nurse. I wore a turtle neck yesterday and the whole process became so much harder.
She's getting to be more alert and fun now when she's awake and we are all really enjoying her. There's been a big difference in just the past couple of days in term of her making eye contact and trying to get us to play with her.
