Figured we should add the baby to the list...

How is baby adjusting to life outside the womb?,

Jay is doing fairly well except for the nursing part.

So far (knock on wood) Oliver has been my easiest newborn. He is the sweetest little guy! A stark contrast to ds, who was super colicky for the first 4 months of life.

He is super gassy though! He is always letting out the loudest farts. He keeps tricking me into thinking that he had a diaper explosion. I go to change his diaper only to find out that it was merely a good fart. Better that it comes out than stays in though.

Breastfeeding is still painful. He has a great latch, but his tongue placement is off, which causes blisters and cracking. I wasn't able to talk to a lactation specialist long enough to learn some techniques to correct this before we had to move. I need to find a new lactation specialist where I'm living at now. The pain is enough that I want to yell out expletives every time he latches on!

Ethan is such an easy baby (I am almost afraid to type this and somehow jinx myself!) so far! He sleeps a lot (yay), and deals with my mega fast letdown and oversupply issues very well. I had a horrible experience BFing my DD due to this, and we stopped at 3 months, so I am very hopeful that Ethan and I will continue much longer than that!
