sleep, food, and the like. for posterity

I was just reading what Buddy was like as a 6 week old and it seemed a lot more complicated. Haha. Her sleep anyways. We had two people involved and it included babe getting up at 2am to do a feeding. I'm betting everything was more complicated because there were bottles involved.

As of right now and basically since she was born, I nurse her every one to three hours in the day. She cat naps in the morning but takes a marathon 3 - 4 hour nap in the afternoon.

She gets a little bit "fussy" from about 6-8pm, which means she mostly wants to nurse the whole time. That's generally fine except other people in this house have to eat too! So I haven't figured out a way to nurse and make dinner. She hollers a bit or babe or Buddy try to keep her occupied.

Anyways, around 8:30 or 9, babe gives her a bottle that I have pumped throughout the day. He puts her in her little bassinette and there she sleeps til about 2am.Then she wakes up usually at 5am then for the day around 7am.

I have to say I am feeling lucky. The last couple of nights Josie has slept til 330 the first time and I was in heaven.

So, there you go. That's the routine as it were. We're not too wedded to a schedule but when I break it down in writing I can kind of see it there.

Babies love routine, dude. You're doing a bang up job.
