4 weeks tomorrow!

It has been hard to get online during the day. Lately my baby boy has been wide awake, just hanging out all day long. At night he has been sleeping 2-3 hours between feedings and there have been no problems getting him to go back to sleep between feedings. He has been pretty crankiy in late afternoon. Today I got him to nap, lets hope that solves that crankiness!

Not much new to update, he will be 4 weeks tommorrow. He seems to be adjusting to life in this world well. The next step for us is to introduce the bottle and help he become comfortable with bottle feeding breastmilk. We have to decide if we are going to give any formula right now too. We are still working on him becoming comforted by a pacifier too, that isnt going so well.

I quickly shed all but 15 lbs of the 40 plus lbs I gained. I dont know how to go about losing this last 15 as I need extra calories to produce milk, and I still cant workout for 2 more weeks because of the c-section. I'm not going to worry about it quite yet, and maybe I will shed a few more without trying.
