im thinking that this is too easy for the 1st couple of weeks lol. Britton is such a good baby and i haven't had any problems with her in what seems like forever lol. she sleeps 4-6 hours at night, feeds and then goes back to sleep for 4-5 hours longer. shes not a big crier, loves to cuddle (who doesn't), she eats well.

exclusively pumping has been going really well too. my supply has definately gone up a lot and i've started keeping track of how much shes eating vs how much i pump. in the last 24 hours shes eaten 20oz, but ive pumped 33oz. woo. im running out of storage containers that i bought (reuseable) so im afraid i will have to go end up buying the freezer bags. but ive heard both good and bad about them. im afraid they will get holes and leak and then it would all be to waste lmao. oh well i guess ya gotta do what you gotta do.

i let hubby sleep at night, since he has to go back to work before me, but Britton usually only wakes up for an hour at the most (so far). but we both end up getting 8-9 hours a night anyways so its not that much of a change. and i have super mommy energy anyways haha. :)

my lochia has been causing me a little bit of concern the past few days. when i first got home it had started to turn brown which i knew would happen. i got really excited that i was healing so well and soo fast.but after the 1st day of that the bright red blood came back :( and hasn't gone away since. i dont feel like im working to hard. i do 1 load of laundry and 1 load of dishes everyday. not much else but take care of her. and thats easy. eat, sleep, poop. woo done! lol. i cant wait until shes older and feeling like when i actually play with her i can get some reactions lol.

Lucky you! My Daughter still does not sleep through the night. She is now 2 months. I keep her up during the day with only and few naps, and she still is wide awake at night around 1 am to 3am sometimes 4am. Glad you have a great baby...I have a great baby to just have to get her sleeping at the right times.
