Our little princess is THREE weeks old already.
It really is hard to believe that she has been in our lives for three weeks already. Things have been pretty good other than the 2-3 hour crying fest that Quinn has been having from 7ish till around 10. I keep trying to rack my brain to figure out why, and I am out of ideas. She is not hungry and her diaper is very clean. I was thinking that her tummy was upset from the food I’ve been eating, but she doesn’t seem to be irritated any other time of day. I also think that (thankfully) I have a lot of milk and she might be getting too much at one time. Not really sure how to fix that, other than pulling her off a few times during each feeding.
Hopefully we can figure something out soon because our routine is just not working right now. I was reading my three week post from last time and I mentioned that we were putting Liam to bed between 7 and 9 and he would sleep until 12 or 2. He would then wake up every 2-3 hours to be changed, eat, burped and he would go back to sleep. I would like to get her on the same schedule. I mean once she is asleep for the night she sleeps for 2 and a half hours before waking up to eat. It’s the going to sleep without a fight that we are having issues with.
In the next week or two I am going to start putting her in her crib during naps in order to get her ready for bedtime in her own room! I would like to get her comfortable in her crib at least two weeks before I have to go back to work.
We also introduced a pacifier this week, she seems to take it a little better than Liam did, but still isn’t a huge fan. I’ve been trying to do more tummy time, but that is going about as well as bedtime…
She loved it. I wish it wasn’t so cold outside so I could take her out for walks during the week. Oh well, it will be warmer soon enough, then people will be complaining that it is too hot out. Not me, I hate winter and I am ready for warmer weather.
Alright, enough rambling, I leave you with pictures of our sweet sleepy princess.
