6 Week Growth Spurt

Last night SUCKED! I actually had the first moment of sheer exhaustion. Sure, I am tired as a new mom, but last night was different.
My husband had the baby and I was in bed watching them play. All of a sudden the baby looked at me and basically cried and squirmed until my husband gave him to me. That is when things went downhill.
He ATE all night. Bottle after bottle. I felt like I was overfeeding him. He wouldn’t burp or poop, but gassy than a mug. He squirmed and would fidget in every position. I got up with him and went to the couch. As I was walking and holding a squirmbox, I remembered the 6 wk growth spurt that I read about.
Medically and from other moms’ experiences, it is said to -have a fussier and much more hungry baby for a few days. They also poop less because they are absorbing the food for growth. As it ends he will sleep a lot, which is when he will grow. (I can’t wait)
In the meantime I am all about a nap with him right now.
Did any of you experience this? Let me know. This fab mom would like some advice.


10 minute naps

My little Pumpalump is 6 weeks old today. I can’t believe it! Time is flying by so quickly and I swear every single day this child is on his way to college.
My post-10 minute naps- real talk, I never knew I could sleep in such a phenomenal restful state within 10 dang minutes.
Someone loves me a whole lot and doesn’t care for being put down. This results in Mama having to rest quick! I close my eyes and drift off for 10 minutes because guess what something will happen: he will cry, grunt, poot, pee, poop, wiggle, squirm, stretch, anything and it will have me on edge, ready at all times. And you know what-that is fine by me.
I waited a long time to have a baby and based on my readings he can’t be spoiled right now 😉
I love his snuggles, I have adjusted to my 10 minute naps and it is all because of my devotion to him. He is awesome. So awesome that sleep seems stupid.
Super fab and barely rested. xoxo
