Weight: Our little guy lost 10oz in the hospital so he was down to 7lbs 3oz when we left the hospital on 6/30 but at his first pediatrican appointment on 7/2 he was up to 7lbs 9oz! At his second one on 7/5 he was up to 8lbs! He LOVES to eat and so far this guy is a champ!
Clothes: He has been wearing Newborn clothes since he was born but they are starting to get a little small. He's still super skinny but he's getting too long for the NB sizes so we've been putting him in 3 month onesies and pajamas and he seems more comfortable
Health: So far so good! He does get hiccups or spits up if we lay him flat too soon after eating so we try to keep him propped up on our shoulders or chest for at least 20 minutes after he eats.
Diet: 100% Breastmilk- so far we have had such an easy time with breastfeeding. I'm not trying to brag because I know I'm only 2 weeks in and some women really struggle with it but honestly it has been really easy for us. I was very nervous and hesitant going into it but it's like Mills knew what he was doing right away and it's been great for both of us. I also started pumping right away so he gets a bottle usually every other day and we started right when we got home from the hospital.
Sleep: He still has his days and nights mixed up but that's to be expected for now and we really don't have a schedule yet but roughly he usually sleeps from 8-10 and then 11-1 and then hopefully 3-7.
Layla is slowly getting used to our new addition
Likes: Eating, sleeping on mommy or daddy, car rides, the swing.
Dislikes: pacifiers, Rock n play sleeper
Crying: So far he really only cries or fusses when he's hungry
Milestones: 1st bottle on 7/2, 1st holiday and holiday party on 7/4, 1st trip to Target on 7/10
Squeezing into my newborn pjs- I think this might be the last week for them
Sleeping in my favorite spot
Social/Visitors: We have had so many visitors! I can't even begin to name everyone who has come to visit or help us or bring food and gifts- all three of us have been so spoiled!
Postpartum: In the ended I gained about 40lbs total during my 40 weeks of pregnancy. So far I am already down 27lbs! I wish I could tell you what I've been doing but I have zero idea because I'm still eating like I'm pregnant.
I have officially started my diet today... boooo. Due to my c-section I can't workout for at least 6 weeks so I know that until I can get back into my workout routine that I need to cut the junk out of my diet. I have about 13lbs to go to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight but I'm hoping to add at least another 5lbs onto that eventually so I can get down to a more "happy weight"
4th of July party!
Green smoothie starts day one of the diet
