ooooh my mamas!!
Nimah is 6weeks and 3 days old today. wow time flues by FAST huh?
so far she has only been "dressed" to leave the house, and thats only been a handful of times. i just throw a baby tee on her with her shorties/longies and we are ready to go. otherwise at home we are NAKED! we are very much a nude family, i cant keep clothes on Addy for the life of me, so i just give up while we are home alone.
i am sure Niamh has outgrown all these newborn clothing she has, and theres a BUNCH of it, she has only worn two tees! its hard to find clothes that go with wool covers/longies pretty much we stay away from onesies or anything with a crotch. i loathe wicking.
Niamh is 11lb 8+oz. and LONG. i need to re measure her. maybe i can have my midwife do it when she comes for my last *sob* postpartum appt on the 29th.
as for the weight... y'all are going to want to kill me.
i am 15lb less than my pre pregnancy weight.
i only know my pre pregnancy weight cause a week before i ovulated i hopped on the scale at my moms house.
i didnt do ANY weight checks while pregnant, and i just hopped on last week.
but, i am a VERY large mama and i have the weight to lose. not that i feel like i need, or even want to lose it, its not a priority at all for me, but its there to fall off if it needs to.
re binkies: we dont use them. at all. but i am a BFAR mama, and she spends almost all day at the breast for nutrition and comfort and i am more than happy with that. i really enjoy knowing that she is getting her suckling comfort needs met by me. if we used a pacifier it would just be the first step of sabotaging our nursing. i know, it happened with Addy (along side the bottles) so we wont be using anything other than mama and the Lact-Aid for suckling/eating/comfort needs.
does anyone else have a REALLY good sleeper, but then have a really terrible sleeper as an older child?
Niamh is SUCH a fabulous sleeper. sweriously, its just mind boggling at how good she sleeps.
but Addy who is 3 is still such a bad sleeper that i DO feel like i am sleeping with a newborn. its just not my newborn making me feel that way!
i LOVE dhs days off, then Niamh and i get to sleep in while he gets up with the crackhead hyper child.
is everyone just totally enjoying their new cooing smiling bundles or what? i know i am!
