Chelwilly:  what an amazing journey it has been, and incredible to share in it with everyone. Now on to the next chapter of motherhood and thank goodness we still have each other for support and advice!

now that sydney is on a schedule, i’m getting about 6.5 hours of sleep (all interrupted). putting her on a schedule takes a LOT of concentration and a lot of work. she and i both cried about it in the beginning but it’s for the best. i can get more sleep and we feel more confident about her feeding times, and making sure she’s getting enough sleep.

on a good day, she gets two significant 2-hr naps during the day, and mini naps whenever she just falls asleep on her own (without swaddling, rocking, etc). she nurses every 2 hrs during the day and every 3 hrs at night. this is the hardest job i’ve ever had. i’ve never worked so hard in my entire life and i’ve done a lot in my life (hourly jobs, college, endurance sports, technical career) but this requires patience, endurance, creativity, time management, physical strength (she’s getting heavy and it would be great if she could support her own head!), ingenuity, and more.

i’m grateful each day that we’re all still standing but always on the look out for the weekend when Darling Husband can stay home with me and give me a break and keep me company.

Chelwilly:  kate02121:  TaurianDoll:  Pink Asawa:  Thanks ladies, it’s been crazy since they got here, but I’ve never been happier.  I definitely agree that night feedings are brutal, but I’m working on tandem nursing, so hopefully the next few weeks will be better 🙂

I’m assuming that no one will actually read this, but just in case… Can we get an update on the moms and kiddos that aren’t in the facebook group? I need something to occupy my time until my due date for #2 in THREE WEEKS!!
