Yes, I’m still here. I’ve neglected this blog. And I have so much to share! But too much time has passed already. I forgot what I was gonna say. *doh* Continue reading
I’ve heard about babies wanting to nurse every hour. Cluster feeding, was it? Is that what it’s called? Yeah. Something like that. There are days, even weeks, when your baby will want to nurse frequently. Today is one of those days. I swear, Babu would be off the boob and 15-30 minutes later, he’ll be looking for it. What?! Calm down, child! Continue reading
We didn’t start Babu with cloth diapers until he was 2 weeks old. The diapers were just WAAAAY too small. Even the smallest diaper didn’t fit. The newborn disposable diapers didn’t fit either. It would fall off. So, there were quite a bit of leaking the first few days since the diapers would be falling off. So, there was no way any other diapers would fit him yet.

Our first night home was pretty challenging. Jellybean just WOULD NOT sleep in his bassinet. He got used to sleeping in my arms. In my defense, I kept him in my arms after nursing him at the hospital because Dad was sleeping and I didn’t want to call a nurse just to help me put the baby back in the bassinet. Either way, once we got home, Jellybean just expected to be held after being nursed. I thought I’d hate it, but I ended up liking it. So, that’s how the baby has been sleeping at night.
So, I guess I lost quite a bit more blood than the doctor would have liked. And so I had to be monitored and checked for a couple extra hours. And I got my blood taken a couple times. And got stuff injected into me. And I’m not sure if I got the catheter before or after the CS. I don’t remember. It was probably before. *shrugs* Continue reading
