1 week old!

We started the morning at the lactation consultant
on Ben's 1 week birthday (Saturday). Woo-hoo!
I got some practical insight re: decreasing painful
latches and some peace of mind that he is getting
plenty to eat w/ before and after feeding weigh-ins....
he took in more than 3 oz at that feeding despite
all the latch practicing and switchng him around!
Plus he weighed 7 lbs 2 oz BEFORE the feeding
which was his birth weight .

Ben's hairy big bro is feeling both jealous and
protective of his new pink little sibling.

Ben tried out a binkie but I decided it was a big pain in the butt....
it pops out of his mouth every 15 seconds which is way more
annoying than providing direct soothing!

The swing we borrowed from 'aunt'
Jenn on the other hand was a big hit!

Bath #2 was quick but fussy....except the hair
washing which is apparently his happy place!
