Ruby turned two weeks old on Saturday. Here’s a little peek into her world.
As of Friday she had regained her birth weight. Up to 8 lbs 2 oz and 19 inches.
It’s no wonder since she’s such a pig!
Thankfully her feeding frenzy tends to happen in the day. We still have to wake her a few times during the night for feedings.
Although she will sleep, she likes to be held all the time and has trouble doing so on her own. She’ll wake from a sound sleep the second you lay her down. Right now it’s working because Jason is off work and Grandma is still with us. So we can pass around the baby. The real test will come around mid March when Jason is back to work and Grandma is back in Colorado. Any tips? It’s unlikely I will be able to stay awake 24 hours per day.
Her umbilical cord fell off, and we gave her her first bath. She hated it.
We gave the Moby wrap a try and she really took to it. Woohoo! I like (mostly because I think Ruby likes) that it smooshes her up against my chest. My only complaint is it seems like a bit of a process to wrap up all that fabric and get her into it. Does anyone have recommendations for carriers that are less bulky and easier to slide baby in and out of?
