I'm having so much fun...Dillon is already a week old! We had a few days of absolute hellish nights (up every 30-45 minutes all.night.long) but now he's sleeping 3 hours at a stretch pretty consistently all night, and he goes right back down after being nursed. I never thought I'd be *happy* to be woken every three hours, but it's much better than every 45 minutes!
During the day, he stays up an hour or two between naps and he's so cute and alert
Nursing has been okay. Latch issues the first couple of days followed by serious engorgement followed by mastitis and antibiotics. But now that I'm feeling better (thank goodness, mastitis is the worst) he's also figured out his latch, my engorgement is going down, and he's gaining weight like crazy! Also figuring out this nak ing thing...
We're also using a combo of cloth dipes during the day and sposies at night, but I'm about to ditch the sposies--the leakage is really bad. Three clothing changes last night for pee dipes!
: I don't change pee dipes at night unless he's fussy or has wet clothes, he just gets so upset to be naked, it isn't worth it.
