    Default First Half of June Catch-up

    Wondering how everyone is hanging in there, whether waiting for their baby to be born already (come on Cuddlebugs!) or surviving with a newborn.

    Baby's Name: Madelyn
    Baby's Birthday: June 4th
    Breast, bottle, or combo feeding & how's it going? Breast - going very well
    How is baby sleeping? Sleeps almost all the time. Only wakes up enough to eat at this point and not much more.
    What about his/her overall temperament? Overall, pretty laid back - unless she's hungry!! She lets the whole town know when she's hungry.
    What is your favorite thing about baby right now: It's always nice to have a tiny little person to snuggle with.
    Least favorite thing about this age: They need to be fed so frequently. It makes an all day shopping trip take about an hour longer then usual!
    How's your weight loss going? LOL, who knows. I weighed myself 3 days after birth and I was only down 6 pounds - just the weight of the baby. I think I have an extra pound on each breast right now! Totally normal for me though. We don't have a scale here, so I just like to see my pants getting loser as time goes by. I've always had all the weight gone by 6 months pp, so I know it will come off.
    Anything else you'd like to share: It's always so sweet to have a newborn. Kind of bitter sweet this time, as she is probably our last one...

    Baby's Name: Jonah
    Baby's Birthday: May 30th
    Breast, bottle, or combo feeding & how's it going? Breastfeeding, and has had a few pumped bottles. He is a great nurser!
    How is baby sleeping? He sleeps great too. He actually slept through the night last night, I know he is supposed to wake up and eat , oops!
    What about his/her overall temperament? He is a good baby, only cries when he gets a air bubble in his tummy
    What is your favorite thing about baby right now: He is sweet and snuggly
    Least favorite thing about this age: The umbilical stump, I hate it! I make DH clean it.
    How's your weight loss going? My weight varies hourly it seems, but I need to lose about 7-9lbs to be at my pre-pregnancy weight
    Anything else you'd like to share: I should add that my boobs were agonizingly hard, and my shirt was soaking wet on the front this morning!

    Baby's Birthday:6/5
    Breast, bottle, or combo feeding & how's it going?Breast-not too bad. I definitely had some major soreness, but got my prescription for APNO filled and I think it helped. He's doing pretty well.
    How is baby sleeping?Well, I don't want to jinx it, but well. He's just been sleepy.
    What about his/her overall temperament?Pretty chill
    What is your favorite thing about baby right now:He's cuddly and cute.
    Least favorite thing about this age:There's not too many ways to placate him. It's mostly boob.
    How's your weight loss going?Not as worried about weight loss, waiting for stomach to shrink down.
    Anything else you'd like to share: DH has been home since Asher was born and goes back to work tomorrow. Hope we make it!

    Breast, bottle, or combo feeding & how's it going? Breast only. Not going great, but it never does for me. I had 8 weeks of pain with DS2, hoping for not quite so long this time! We are using a nipple shield. I hate to become dependent on it but my nips are so sensitive and his latch is not great (tiny mouth, ginormous boobs!) and the shield is helping for now.
    How is baby sleeping? He is still quite new and sleeps a lot Two nights ago he was up most of the night and NOT happy. Last night was good though, he only ate at 9:30 pm, 1:00 am, 3:00 am and 6:00 am. And he went right to sleep after eating each time. So that was nice!
    What about his/her overall temperament? He is a lovely little dude Still mostly sleeping all day but has a few little wakeful periods where he is quite content.
    What is your favorite thing about baby right now: Snuggles Being able to hold his whole little bum in one hand LOL.
    Least favorite thing about this age: Getting used to nursing. Engorgement. Bowel movements for myself.
    How's your weight loss going? No idea. LOL. I don't own a scale. Still a big belly, only 5 days post partum.
    Anything else you'd like to share: Sad my mommy left today! But only 1.5 weeks til MIL arrives and DH is only working half days until she comes. I am busy organizing my DD's 6th birthday party! We will have it a few weeks before her birthday so that her school friends haven't left for summer vacation yet. The party is on June 28th.

    Name: Ashley
    Baby's Name: Hudson
    Baby's Birthday: June 6th
    Breast, bottle, or combo feeding & how's it going? Breast, going well now that I'm finally not engorged any longer
    How is baby sleeping? Fine as long as I'll let him sleep with me :P I have to wake him at night to eat most of the time.
    What about his/her overall temperament? He seems mostly pretty mellow unless I'm changing him or he's hungry, then he lets the world know he's mad
    What is your favorite thing about baby right now: How small he is, how he curls up on me to sleep
    Least favorite thing about this age: Not being able to leave the house for more than short bursts of time (unless I want to feed him while I'm out), how there is no distracting him when he decides he's hungry, having to feed him on a schedule to some extent (looking forward to being able to let him sleep as long as he wants!)
    How's your weight loss going? Down about 11 lbs so far is all, 19 to go. But my stomach is slowly deflating so I'll take that over the actual weight. Looking forward to working out soon though!
    Anything else you'd like to share: My arm still hurts from the Tdap shot! That thing is the devil.
