Re: How old is your baby and how much does s/he sleep?

Logan is 9.5 weeks old. He typically sleeps 3 hour stretches at night, though last night he went 4 hours. Omg, I felt halfway human this morning! I'm averaging 5 hours of sleep a night, which is...

Re: I have to confess...

I will echo everyone else! I hate breastfeeding! It's so time consuming, mildly uncomfortable, and frustrating that it's all on me. I prefer pumping because at least then I know how much I'm...

Re: Scrawny baby..

Logan is finally up to 11 lbs at 2 months old. He's outgrown all the newborn stuff now...I sniffled a little packing up the boxes of clothes! He's solidly in 0-3 or 3 month clothing.

Re: how much milk

Pumping at work gives about 5 oz every 4 hours. At 8 weeks old he only eats 2-3 oz at a time...but eats every 1.5-2 hours. I am keeping up with his needs most days.

Re: Exclusive pumpers?

I'm EPing, because he isn't efficient enough nursing. He'll nurse for 45 minutes and then suck down a full bottle 10 minutes later. He drinks 2-3 oz in a sitting, and eats every 2-3 hours. He's at...

Re: Burning pain when engorged/cold?

I have renaud's syndrome in my hands and feet...it's not like what you're describing. My extremeties turn bright white/purple and ache, but definitely not a burning sensation.

Re: First day back to work...

Definitely do as much as you can the night before. I pack my lunch, shower, lay out clothes, and pack my work bag before heading to bed at night. Makes the morning go a lot smoother!

You can do...

Re: First day back to work...

I just finished my first week back. Honestly, the anticipation was the worst part. It felt really good to get showered and out the door early in the morning!

You can do it!

Re: Burning pain when engorged/cold?

I described it as "a raccoon digging its claws into my boobs", but yeah, I guess burning works too ;)

I think for me, it's when I start to leak. Thank goodness for nursing pads.

Re: Asher's 3 week update

Re: Birthmarks

Logan has exactly what you describe--a pink mark on both his left eyelid and the base of the back of his neck. The nurses said it would fade--we shall see!

Also loving the ergo for walking the dog. No way could I push a stroller and hold the...

I took a birthing class just to know what to expect, but I never had any "must haves" for the birth. I showed up at the hospital and went with the flow.

We were signed up for baby care class, but...
