Happy 1 month Heidi! Glad things are going well minus the days / nights thing. Have you tried nursing her more often during the day or evening before bed? That's helped us a little with getting John to sleep longer but most nights he still has at least one long awake period. It's hard where as each kid is so individual with sleep/eating patterns.

We are doing well. Hard to believe John will be 2 months in a couple weeks. He was 9 10 oz at 1 month so in curious to see what he is at his two month though I'm not looking forward to his shots. DD never had issues but it's still hard.

Happy 1 month to Heidi!!

We are doing well...slowly adjusting and getting into a routine with 4. It isn't as bad as I thought it would be, and the girls are a HUGE help! They take turns feeding her in the morning while I'm getting lunches ready for school, they take turns picking out her clothes, and are always asking what they can do to help. I'm sure it won't last, but I'm going to capitalize on it while they're willing to help Wink

We are FF feeding here. When we left the hospital, Reagan was down to 6.14 and at her 1 week checkup, she was up to 7.5 (4 oz past her birth weight). Needless to say, she's a good eater. I think she gets a bit gassy though after feedings. Monday she cried most of the day, and had really hard poo. It made me sad to see her so upset!

We're also still working on the sleep in crib issue. Some nights, she does amazing!! Monday night she slept in her crib after every feeding. Last night, she refused to sleep in there, but she did sleep 5 hours straight in my bed. I will just continue to work on it, and hopefully by the time I go back to work in mid-March, she'll be in her crib Smile
