all the photos are terrific!!! what gorgeous babies!! I wish we had a pool, but I may just see how he does in the bathtub with me sometime soon.
Corny- really thinking about you and Abby-I know she'll do great!
Rio- here's the rough schedule -it's a bit tricky as I pump when i can- usually 4xs per day for about 15 minutes each side (with a lot of breast compression) about 9am, 1pm, 4-5pm, 8-9pm
5-6am nurse for 15 minutes ( doc says no more than that b/c he uses up too much energy and burns off any calories he takes in- it's like eating celery!
and pretty much why i decided to pump and then feed him- so i know what he's getting)
8-9am 5oz (we just went from 4 to 5 this week!!)
and for the last 4 nights. he's not woken up for a 3am-ish feeding- I nurse him for 15-20 minutes at this one as well
my bottles are bmilk and topped off with formula, so about 50/50 throughout the day as my supply dwindles
I don't really put him down for a nap at any specific time, he just tells me
Suga It's so great that the girls are sitting up- I am sure you'll be thrilled when they sleep through the night and wake at the same time - I am pretty sure my mom must be a saint for taking care of twins after hearing what you're going through!
Tammy- what a lovely photo montage - it made me cry, and get a bit pouty that we didn't have such wonderful photos taken
Mellie- come on AF!!!!! it's so exciting that you are on your way
it is completely wild that a year ago our little dude was conceived!
kbear- i'm glad you're letting your little one sleep! i was told by 1 source to set an alarm to wake him up to feed him, i did that 2xs and forget it- he was mad and i was mad- they know when they are hungry. 10lbs! that's awesome- yes- let's get together in spring!!! it's snowing here today- how about out your way? oh and the dog has been an angel since we brought the little guy home- i really believe he'd been waiting for him to come.
Pulman went to the doc for a 3month weight check- he's 9lbs 8oz!!!! he gained 2lbs this month-I was a bit concerned as there was a big baby in the office born the same day as Pulman, and he weighted 13lbs 5oz- he was huge!!! but the doc said Pullie's doing great and that his motor skills, communication skills and eye contact are ahead of the game by at least a month- and not to worry about how much he weighs, just that he is gaining well -so there's that!
and he's 23" long- he keeps getting longer and longer, but not wider
How are all of you with tummy time? Pulman doesn't like it so much- and he fusses for a few minutes, then just falls asleep.
well off to pump while the little man is asleep on his tummy
so much for tummy time today again....
lots of good wishes!
