Another busy week with some family in town. We’re all having a ball! Both Matt and I were able to get out and about some this week which felt so nice.
Feeding: Brody is eating like a champ. We have been clustering feeding this week (eating all the time). I’m still breastfeeding, pumping and supplementing some with the 2oz bottles of Similac.
Sleeping: He is still sleeping pretty much during the day, but is becoming more and more alert. At night, I have been trying to get to bed a little earlier which means he is too and he is waking up one to two times a night. It hasn’t been too bed. He is still sleeping in the room next to our bed, so I usually walk him to his nursery and change his diaper and feed him in there.
Likes: He loves his massages at night, walks, bath time, being outside, riding in the car, and his Momaroo
Postpartum: this week was amazing. Somewhere around 7-10 days postpartum, all the swelling just evaporated from my body. My face seemed back to normal and my legs and ankles and it was such a nice feeling. I could tell for several nights in a row that I was waking up with severe sweat. It turns out it was my body releasing all these extra fluids. I still have 15lbs to go to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight, but I sure am happy to see all that fluid gone.
