What was I thinking taking a picture of myself at 2am?!? I must be delirious to actually post this!
I'm just keeping it real! :)
Taylor is almost 4 weeks old, but has proven to be unpredictable. Some nights she sleeps well and will have a 6 hour stretch of solid sleep. What a treat that is!
This is her nursing log from the baby app we are using, called Trixie Tracker. Last night, she went from 8pm to 2am! I wasn't asleep that whole time to enjoy a full 6 hours of sleep myself, but It’s still good!
Other nights Tay has been really fussy & gassy. We do everything we can for her, but she will still grunt and fuss intermittently throughout the night. It's hard to watch your baby in discomfort when there's not much you can do. We’ve taken her into see the doctor (twice) about this. We started with giving her Mylicon gas drops and now have tried Gripe Water. I guess it has helped some, but it hasn't been the miracle treatment like many moms said it has been for their children.
The good news is, Taylor is usually great during the day. She goes with the flow and naps wherever. She is also eating very well. She’s up to 8 pounds and the doc is very pleased with her weight gain. It's amazing to me that I have provided all of the food and nutrients she needs to grow and thrive. That part of nursing is very rewarding!
