So breast feeding exclusively has went out the window. This boy eats too much! I started giving him some formula after bath and one more feed before going to bed. Otherwise just boobs. But today he surprised me. He drank in one 4oz of formula after bath!!! Plus he wanted boob. That was at 6:30pm, two hours later he ate more boob. It is now 10pm and he finally fell asleep….but still kinda moving, shifting, moaning, stretching….

now he will wake up every two hours, maybe three until 4am, that is when the hourly feeding starts, which baffles me. It goes until 7am. Then again every two until 2pm. Three hour stretch. Back to two hours. 

In the morning he is pooping machine. 5x times. Then 2x after bath. At least he kinda stopped pooping at night. 

Well more later…now gotta sleep x

Petr Abel is growing up fast. Eating, pooping and sleeping a lot. Well, the sleeping is not established at all, but sometimes he does give me a break and lasts up to 5hours. Usually, every two hours is the norm.

I’m tired. Exclusively breastfeeding,

My oldest turned two. It is a bit unreal.

Anyway, gotta go. Will post some more later xxx

Two weeks old

Petr is 52,5 cm and 3400g at the moment. Basically he was supposed to be due tomorrow. For the last two days, he has been suffering with nasal congestion. I took him today to the pediatrician and she said he is healthy, it is not a cold. Thank God.
But I do have to use nasal drops every three hours to clear him up. Poor thing, how he cries.

I’m kinda getting used to waking up every 2,5hrs to breastfeed. The hardest time for me is 1am and 4am feeds. That is when I am feeling the tiredness and exhaustion. And that is the time he chooses to poop a lot. Oh boy. He does suffer a bit to poop or release gas. He does not cry, but moans and groans. And every time I change his diaper, he starts to hiccup. The whole process of feeding and changing is like one hour if lucky. Sometimes, it can last up to 2hrs. By that time, I am fully awake and browsing my iPad. At 4am I’m getting happy because the daylight is coming soon. During the day is almost impossible to nap. Fernando is in daycare until 12pm and then the nanny looks after him. I can’t wait for Petr to have a month so I can start extracting milk and give him a bottle to have more quality time for Fernando and my dear husband.
I think I will try to give him a bottle at three weeks. I hope he takes it as well as his brother did.
Well, gotta go….
