Amelia: Week 3

Nora and Millie had a little photo session this week :).

Size: Millie is definitely growing! She started wearing 0-3 month clothes and has moved to size 1 diapers. We are leaning toward cloth diapering once she is a little bigger. Do you cloth diaper? Please comment/leave links to your favorites! I still have a lot of research to do before we decide.

Health: She's had a little stuffy nose and congestion this week, but otherwise she's doing great. Nora had some kind of virus early in the week and was running a fever. Thankfully, Millie didn't get it! Her tear ducts are still plugged and are worst in the morning when she wakes up.

Sleep: This week Millie has been sleeping about 2-3 hour stretches. She pretty consistently falls asleep right around 8, after nursing and fussing off and on for anywhere from 1-3 hours. I started letting her nap at least one solid 2 hour nap in her crib this week, but she is still sleeping in our room at night.

Social: Millie finally got to meet her Grammy and Gramps and Aunt Mally and Uncle Claney. Nora especially enjoyed having them around :).

Diet: Millie likes to eat about every 1.5 - 2 hours during the day, sometimes a little longer if she's taking a good nap.

Postpartum: I hardly feel like I had a baby 3 weeks ago. My tailbone hurts after prolonged periods of sitting, and my pelvic floor muscles are really weak. Otherwise, I'm good as new! I've lost about 20 of the 40 lbs I gained.

Milestones: We're already getting glimpses of this little girl's smile, and I'm loving it!!

Finally, here's a comparison of the girls for fun :).

Millie at 3 weeks
Time is going by so fast already. We're trying to take it all in and thoroughly enjoy each day!

  1. We are diving into cloth diapering and figuring out favorites still! So far we've liked Thirsties duo wrap with the stay dry inserts. We've also tried econobums, a fitted workhorse, indian prefolds, and a bum genius pocket diaper. I've definitely learned that I like a trim fit and more of the insert & cover combos. You'll have to let me know if you find something you really love! I know the options overwhelmed me and still do with all the choices :)
