Boys are hard!!! First 3 weeks with Dax!

Omg! Ok, so I knew I would get peed on, but seriously, the first 10-12 days were ridiculous! I think I changed Dax and I almost every time I changed his diaper! I got pretty smart about it though and now it’s not so bad! His new thing is blow out his diaper, like (breastmilk) poop everywhere!!! Breastmilk poop smells bad, really bad! And he does this at least once a day. Lol.

We are still having issues with the stuffy nose and snorting. But he has been to the ENT twice for scopes and the pediatrician for his 2 week check up and they both say the same thing. It is just congestion that he will grow out of and there is nothing we can really do. We do run a humidifier at night and suction his nose as he needs it. He has good days and rough days.

We are exclusively breastfeeding still and we love it!!! We have a great breastfeeding relationship! Dax is an amazing eater, not very often does he refuse the breast when I offer it…haven’t decided if that’s good or bad yet! He did gain all his birth weight back and beyond. At 2 weeks, they want them to be back up to birth weight and he was almost a whole pound up! We were a little worried that he was having some dairy issues but I cut it out and the congestion was still the same. I missed milk…a lot! But that was something I discussed with both drs also. They both said the congestion is normally paired with another symptom of the allergy and he has no other symptoms, so I cut it out to see if it was an issue and nothing changed.

Dax also hates his cat seat! Oh god, does he hate it! It does have a slick material and he tends to slide down into the seat and get wedged in there. We think we have fixed that problem though…hopefully. We took a small trip to a city about 2 1/2 hours away and we had to stop several times on our way there to readjust him and then finally found a trick to help him. After that he was fine. He still hates it though.

He has been sleeping very well. He normally goes down between 830-1030pm. Big window, I know. But he sleeps about 4-5 hours and then wakes for a feeding and change. Then he sleeps about another 3-4 hours. Then naps during the day. Milah wears him out though! He did not do well while we stayed in our hotel this last week. Neither did Milah. I only got a few hours of sleep. It was a little rough!!!

We do have some big news coming soon!!!! We are beyond excited!
