Today we did our first sponge bath (newborns dont take full baths). you basically just wash him off with a washcloth. he didnt mind it until we washed his hair – actually getting his head wet. i also had my first poopy diaper to change early this morning. luckily it wasnt one of the scary massive ones like paul got.
ive already noticed an improvement in my ear/lungs congestion since taking the meds last night. my ears are pretty much back to normal and my cough is much better.
im trying to pump more but im still only hitting like 3 times a day so far when its sposed to be every 2 hours. im worried im going to mess up my supply if i dont do better. plus when i wait too long they get full and sore. i absolutely hate breast feeding. it has been making me miserable.
tonight we had our first “outing” that wasnt a doctors appointment. the three of us went to walmart to pick up a few things. there are so many things we decided we needed the past few days but forgot to write down that we ended up getting probably only half of the stuff we need, but i started feeling really sick (headache/dizzy) so we would have had to leave anyhow. i dont know if its lack of sleep, the non-cold ive had, or dehydration, or a result of all the meds ive taken or what but i totally crashed. i also havent been able to eat much lately…no idea why. anyhow, i got a bunch of cute onesies for $3 each. btwn peeing on himself and spitting up on himself i go thru 2-3 outfits a day so we needed to grab some more cheap ones. from now on we are getting all our clothes from walmart … $3 vs $14 for an outfit that he doesnt wear long.
