Hi Bella -Lulu is beautiful. What a cutie! So glad she has arrived
My "best" advice, which you have probably heard a million times, is when the baby sleeps - you sleep. Trust me - Lulu won't care if the dishes are done, the laundry is done, if you've showered, or the house is clean... But, she will care that you are well rested and in a good mood to take care of her. Good luck when DH goes back to work. You'll do great. Some days will be harder than others for sure, but you'll make it through all of them
Anyone else using a baby sling or carrier? I just started using the baby bjorn and love it. Even when Hendricks is really unhappy and crying, I'll put him in it, bounce for a few minutes and he'll fall asleep. Then I can go about doing things around the house and he stays asleep and close to me.
How are everyone's nights going? We've had a few nights that he has slept from 9pm to 4am. Strangely, those have been the nights when we've been up til past midnight with friends/family etc so still no more than a few hour stretch for us. It is pretty good though... he's usually to bed at 9pm, up at 2, then up again at 6am for the day. At 2 months, he's only napping for about 3 hours a day now which I think is helping him to sleep better at night.
KristiA - Is the feeding getting any better? Hope so!! I had a strange question... did you have to sterilize your bras too?
Hendricks's baptism was yesterday. He wore a frilly white dress worn by his grandma, me, my sister, and all nieces and nephews. At first DH was not thrilled about him wearing a dress, but once H was in it, he did look pretty cute. I joke with H that now that he is a child of God, that doesn't mean it is ok to start sinning.
Hope all is well!
