Newborn Summary: Week 11

This week was Christmas! It was so fun!!

Nursing: Same as last week. Both sides at a time, exclusively breastfeeding.

Waketime: Hour & 15 minutes to Hour & a half.

Nighttime Sleep: Dates of 12/21-12/27. Due to all the Christmas stuff, we had some difficult nights, but it was worth it!

Night 1 - Friday night - I fed her at 7:15 and put her to bed. She woke up at 11:15, 3:30 & 7:15. She had 2 feedings after we went to bed (11:15 & 3:30) and her longest stretch was 4.25 hours from 11:15 to 3:30.

Night 2 - Saturday night - I fed her at 7:30 & put her to bed. She woke up at 12:00, 4:00 and 8:00. She had 2 feedings after we went to bed (12:00 & 4:00) and her longest stretch was 4.5 hours from 7:30 to 12:00.

Night 3 - Sunday night - I fed her at 7:15 and put her to bed. She woke up at 12:30, 4:00 & 7:30. She had 2 feedings after we went to bed (12:30 & 4:00) and her longest stretch was 5.25 hours from 7:15 to 12:30.

Night 4 - Monday night - I fed her at 6:45 and tried to put her to bed. She wouldn't go to sleep (I think it was all the Christmas festivities!) so I fed her again at 8:00. She slept pretty fitfully and woke up again at 10:00. She then woke up at 3:00 and 7:00. She had 1 feeding after we went to sleep (3:00) and her longest stretch was 5 hours from 10:00 to 3:00.

Night 5 - Tuesday night - I fed her at 7:00 and put her to bed. She woke up at 1:30, 4:30 and 6:30. She had 2 feedings after we went to bed (1:30 & 4:30) and her longest stretch was 6.5 hours from 7:00 to 1:30.

Night 6 - Wednesday night - I fed her at 7:00 and put her to bed. We decided to try a dreamfeed because we thought she was waking up a lot & that it would help. So I fed her at 10:00. She woke up at 3:00 and 7:00. She had 1 feeding after we went to bed (3:00) and her longest stretch was 5 hours from 10:00 to 3:00.

Night 7 - Thursday night - I fed her at 6:45, then tried the dreamfeed again at 10:15. She then woke up at 2:30 and 7:30. It didn't seem like the dreamfeed was really helping. She had 1 feeding after we went to bed (2:30) and her longest stretch was 5 hours from 2:30 to 7:30.

Naps: Same thing. Inconsistent and about 45 minutes to an hour. (Really frustrating).

Sibling: Christmas with Isis & Lux was awesome! I loved seeing the 2 of them together! I have some really great pictures of the 2 of them. I really look forward to the coming years of them together.

Schedule: Same. Every 3 hours. Waketime 1.25 to 1.5 hours.

Mom Stuff: Saw my counselor for the last time this week only because my insurance changes on January 1 and the co-pay/deductible stuff changes enough that I won't be able to go regularly. But I still feel really good and I am hoping I'm able to keep that up as I start back to school next week!

Milestones: Lots of cooing & smiles! She's doing great with holding her head up and she's very alert!
