Guess Who’s Growing?!

Little Pea is now just over 5 weeks old and weighed in at 8lb 2.5 oz yesterday! She gained a whole pound in 2 weeks, which is amazing! Chunky cheeks and chunky thighs are starting to develop, which make her all the more adorable.

Still not on any sort of a routine – she sometimes nurses every 1.5 hours during the day, sometimes every 3. At times in takes 15 minute and other time 50 minutes. Nights are also totally unpredictable. At times she puts herself to sleep around 8:30, wakes up for the day at 6 or 7 with only 1 nighttime feed around 2 or 3. Other nights she’s difficult to get down and then wakes every 2 hours to eat. Such is the life of a 5 week old…

Now that she has hit that 8lb mark, Little Pea can go in the Bjorn. Being able to go hands free will be a huge help in terms of prepping meals, folding laundry, etc… Good thing too because meals from friends are coming to an end. I am so thankful for all the help of our friends and neighbors – thanks for filling our bellies, pitching in with school drop-off and pickup, and just being there for us!

I’ll try to check in more frequently, but it’s hard!

Happy New Year to all!

    You sound like you are cherishing those sweet newborn days – that is awesome! And yay on the weight gain!! I loved using my Baby Bjorn with my first son, especially when we were out and about. ❤ I have a page with breastfeeding info and resources, if you're interested: http://atlantamomofthree.wordpress.com/breastfeeding-rocks/ 😀
