C and I have been adjusting well to parenthood. Because Falco arrived so early, and C is really dedicated to her job, she’s postponed her maternity leave until after the 26th of April. She works in fundraising/development, and there is a very large annual event that takes place on the 25th. She plays a huge role in making this event happen, and didn’t want to leave her co-workers or the agency in a lurch. I respect how hard she is working, while still doing as much as she can at home to help me out. She’s seriously worked about 60 hours this week already. It’s rough. It’s been a little challenging for me, home alone with the little guy. I feel cooped up here and a little emotional and miss having her around to reassure me when I’m afraid I’m doing everything wrong. C is totally the calm one right now….but I’m hoping that is just the pregnancy hormones and I’ll relax a little more soon.
Cloth diapering is going really well. I have to admit I was a little scared of the poo and the poo sprayer! (Since we’re bottle feeding the poop is not water soluble like breast milk feed babies). But it really hasn’t been that bad at all, especially since we have this Spray Pal. I highly recommend it!
The most challenging thing so far has been feeding. Falco has some reflux and it’s a slow process to feed him and difficult to watch him uncomfortable and struggle while eating. The pediatrician isn’t too worried about it since he isn’t having any trouble gaining weight.
And now for some pictures!!
