sleep



so ive been putting baby girl (month old) in her bassinet to sleep so that she wont use the boppy pillow as a bed anymore and she gets used to her bassinet. she used to nap in the living room with all the noise of the day and sleep 2-3 hours. but her naps have only been1-2hrs long now and i can hear her wakng up very often. shes good at falling asleep by her self but i dont feel like shes getting good enough sleep, so she will fall right back to sleep ive been trying to sleep when she sleeps since she wakes up to eat every 2 hours but she wakes up after 30min so im not getting much sleep. am i confusing her by putting her in our quiet room during the day? she can still see the light from outside and hear some stuff around the house. should i let her sleep in the living room like i had been doing for naps before? or does she just need to get used to it?

pumped



i swear shes gained a lb in the past few days lol. shes been waking up once a night which is awesome. last night i had to drive my MIL to phoenix airport. 2hour drive there and back. britton ate at 130 i pumped and i changed her. we left at 230 and she slept until we got home at 630am. crazy! then i pumped and fed her and we slept for 3 hrs. she has been sleepnig allll day so i think she might be going through a growth spurt (she has been eating a lot too) some sittings she will eat 6oz! sometimes i think i should stop her from eating so much. but she'll usually go 4 hrs inbetween feedings then.
oh and this girl is a pooping machine! omg sooo much poop. we go through so many diapers lol. she goes like 10 times a day! ive been doing good maintaining the house and the baby today without my mother in law which is exciting to know i can do this on my own lol. now i just have to help DH get used to it. because almost every time Britton gets fussy he will give her back. he just got home, played with her for 15min and she staaarted fussing. i was like oh no im not taking her back i get a little break lol. he needs to learn how to sooth her crying too. he grabbed a bottle (after my advice that she might be hungry) and shes been good ever since lol

oh yeah the only good/bad thing is that my bleeding almost completely stopped bleeding when DH's mom was here, but today there was bright red blood in my pad again. which friggen *****! maybe its my period. but im exclusively pumping so i didn't think i was going to get it for months. we'll see.
