Well this is our first baby and things are going great! Until 7pm......you know the drill, 3 hours of crying. But after that, the night time is great! Co sleeping, Neva goes to sleep about 10, up around 2 and again at 6 and up for the "day" about 11.
I am not sure what to do during those couple hours. I am not eating wheat, dairy, citrus, gassy veggies, chocolate, caffiene. Pretty much nothing. She will feed and feed and feed...but then spit everything up and just want to eat more. Do I keep feeding her? I have tried to pump so that she is just sucking but she get so mad she wants food. But when I give her milk she gets really uncomfortable and just spitts up. Ahhhhh.... We wear her most of the day, but she just screams in there at night. We swaddle her, tried every appliance noise in the house, it is too cold to take her outside
, the only time she stops crying is on the boob. I guess just time and it will work itself out.
Besides that, we are doing so great. She is so happy during the day, naps wonderfully, loves the bath and being worn. We are venturing out a bit more, I even took her to Target in the Moby. She doesn't love her car seat when I first put her in it, but settles once the car gets moving.
She doesn't really like being held in arms when she is awake. She would rather be put down on a blanket. I think she gets overstimulated in my arms. So we lay on the floor a lot together and sing songs, look at books, etc.
She LOVES being on the changing table! And I LOVE puting all these cute cloth diapers on her. I am loving CDing!! I am so glad she likes the table. I have taken care of babies who hate it and it is hard to deal with. Sometimes we spend over 30 minutes there!!!!!
I think this will be our only baby so I taking it all in. I feel so lucky to be able to stay home with her!
My dh is so wonderful and helpful, again I am so grateful! My hormones feel like they are leveling out a bit, thank god! I was a teary mess for a while. BFing is going well, I tend to get a little lazy at night with the latch, I need to fix that, but it is just so hard to stay awake!
Glad to hear from you all!!!
