Things are going good here. We got out of the house the past 3 days! Saturday we went to Sam's Club and out to lunch. Sunday we went to the grocery store. And today we went for Mommy's doctor appointment (that wasn't fun!). It looks like we will be out to dinner tomorrow night as our friend Katie will be in town from Colorado.
And we are getting better about sleeping at night, not perfect, but better. She will be up for about an hour with each night time feeding and then sleep for about 2, which is much better than being up from 2am until 6am. The better she is about sleeping through the night, the more we'll be getting out of the house. I'm in search of some cheap, in-between clothes. My maternity clothes are falling off of me, but I'm far from fitting into my pre-pregnancy stuff.
We decided to go with formula (which I think is helping her to sleep longer). She is a much more pleasant baby, and I'm a much more pleasant mommy (plus Daddy can participate). We did breast feed for just over 2 weeks, and she did a number on me! We stopped breastfeeding last Tuesday, and I'm just now healing. My lactation consultant called to see how things were going, and I told her we decided to go with formula. She was funny, she said "Don't tell anyone a lactation consultant told you this, but I really think that was the best decision for you."
Daddy and baby are sleeping, so I suppose I should be sleeping too.
