Breastfeeding: Things are going really well with L. She gets a little gassy after she nurses sometimes and it makes her fussy if it takes me a while to burp her. But otherwise she latches well and I enjoy having time to just snuggle up with her. I often just sit there and stroke her hair while she nurses. I have to resist the urge to touch her feet because it tickles her too much and she gets distracted.
Sleep: We are still doing very well at night - she wakes up about twice during the night. Between 1-2 AM, depending on what time we went to bed. Then the second time is between 5-6. Then we get up between 9-10 unless we have an early morning appointment/errand. We were supposed to have a few appointments this week but the snow changed our plans.
Play:Ladybug is loving tummy time. She loves lifting her head and looking around. I swear the other day she was trying to figure out how to roll over. I know it's very early for that, but again she's just trying, she didn't actually do it. She's just so inquisitive and it's fun to watch.
As for me...We're over a week into R's cross-country training and in some ways it is getting easier but in other ways definitely not. Weekends tend to be the hardest since we don't have new mom groups or storytime to look forward to. But we had friends come over each day, and we celebrated L's one month "birthday" on Sunday with some cookies. Saturday was our first trip to the grocery store - it was a bit of a mess because of the incoming snowstorm, I don't have any desire to do more shopping when the store is that busy! But L was great - she just snoozed in the Ergo. Sunday our friends entertained her while I got my haircut and it was nice to have some alone time. My favorite part was grabbing a burger and not needing to inhale it in 5 seconds. Speaking of food, at this week's weigh in my weight was exactly the same. I'm trying not to sweat it too much because I'm not cleared for the gym and am not going to diet while breastfeeding. We are trying to walk when we can - we went to the mall one day and got a great walk in. I also hopped back on the bike one day with L and she allowed me to ride for 15 minutes before she got fussy.
I'll be sure to update once we have our one month appointment - it was supposed to be yesterday but the whole area was shut down. So we are rescheduled for Friday, which makes for a very busy morning. I have to drop off the boys at the groomers, then we have her appointment at 9 and storytime at 9:30. Thankfully the library is across the street from the pediatrician's office.
