WHAT RYLEIGH’S DAYS & NIGHTS ARE LIKE…

Sleeping: Ryleigh is nursing every 30 minutes from 8:00-9:30pm then she goes to sleep until 4am when she nurses again and back to sleep again til 7:00, 5 minutes before my alarm goes off to wake up Travis for school. She stays awake after that feeding until around 9am then naps on and off throughout the day.

Eating: Ryleigh has been nursing like a champ! She nurses every 2-3 hours for about 30 minutes during the day, sometimes a little more just depending on the day. Sometimes she is satisfied with only one side other times she requires both sides.

Diapers: She’s in Size One Pampers Swaddlers.

Places She Went: Shopping, house hunting and a birthday party for our close friends kids.

Other Random Stuff: My Mom and sister came to visit for 5 days. I also started pumping milk for a small freezer stash.>

Family Fishing Time

This past weekend we went fishing at my in-laws house, everyone had a blast and the kids both caught a few fish. The weather was perfect to enjoy some time outdoors!

Sleeping: Ryleigh is still cluster feeding from 9:30-11:30 then she sleeps until 4:30-5am before waking to nurse, then she nurses again at 6:30. She stays awake after that feeding until around 9am then naps on and off throughout the day.

Eating: Ryleigh has been nursing like a champ! She nurses every 2-3 hours for about 40 minutes during the day, sometimes a little more just depending on the day. Sometimes she is satisfied with only one side other times she requires both sides. We are in a growth spurt right now so she’s nursing pretty often.

Places She Went: Ryleigh went to Fishing at Grandma and Grandpa’s house, to the Boy Scout Store and a few other shopping trips.

Other Random Stuff: On March 18th she smiled in response to me talking to her and she began cooing a TON!

Diapers: She is still in Pampers Swaddlers newborn, hoping to find some good cloth diapers this weekend!

Thoughts from the big kids: Travis is sure to check on his baby sister before he leaves for school and as soon as he gets home each day. Sophie is still smothering Ryleigh with love!

Places She Went: Ryleigh went to Florida to visit family. She did great traveling and only nursed once midway through the 6 hour drive! She also did great sleeping in a new place since we brought the Fisher Price Rock and Play with us.

Other Random Stuff: Her belly button completely dried up last night so she was able to get a bath in her Blooming Bath in the kitchen sink!
