So yesterday was Jacob's first day in day care... His grin when I arrived to pick him up was priceless!
I am a bit concerned, he gets 3 bottles a day, each containing 3 ounces. I only pump 8 ounces during the day (I wake at 2 a.m. to pump just a bit more). & he is not gaining, so I also wake him at 11p.m. & 4 a.m. to nurse. We have a Dr. appt. this afternoon after which, I may be needing to consult with the lactation specialist again...
Also I have the bottles timed, so that he will be ready to eat when I pick him up; hence the cartoon.
We are doing cloth diapers & since Bum Genius works like a Pamper, the day care is fine with them, phew. So I need to start a diaper wash when I arrive home to two starving cats with a starving baby. Let the circus begin!
Feed the baby some, set the baby down, feed the cats, start the diaper wash, let the cat out of his carrier (2 different Rx diets for 2 cats, so one eats in the kitty carrier), feed the baby some more, set the baby down, take out the pumping supplies & bottles for washing, start the second part of the diapers (wash in cold, then wash in hot), give the baby his Zantac (for the excessive spit up) & vitamins, feed the baby some more (or at least let him suckle for comfort) for about 2 hours straight, put the diapers in the dryer. Then Daddy gets home so that he can interact with the baby after washing the pumping supplies & bottles, before stuffing the diapers, doing a second load of laundry & chatting with grandma who was all in for the guilt trip... (I have to assume that he ate something, too.)
Mix in a tiny amount of munching on potato chips & dry cereal for mommy, then watch Mommy fall asleep before 9 p.m.!
