Baby Weight: In a month of almost exlusive nursing -- less exclusive than I thought, actually -- Paloma gained 1.75 pounds. (What, you thought I was going to talk about my baby weight? I lost that ages ago.) She still gets the occasional bottle since Tedd is willing to give it in the dead of night or early morning, and I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. However, I am usually the one to get up overnight because every time I stop, I start spotting. Apparently it's when baby starts sleeping overnight that menstruation starts up again. Icky!
Which brings us to:
Sleeping Through the Night: Paloma sort of sleeps through the night now, or at least has for two days in a row. Recently, she was only waking up once between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. That was fine by me. Sometimes I'd feed her, sometimes Tedd would feed her, and sometimes I'd get up and pump a little while he fed so I wouldn't look like a porn star the next morning. Lately, Paloma has gone to bed at 10ish and stayed asleep until about 5-6 a.m. I like this, but there is the whole period thing.
Decreased sleep or 5 days of bleeding... decreased sleep or vaginal bleeding. Huh.
Torticollis: The pedi says that Paloma doesn't have torticollis, though she does show a slight preference for one side and has a slight flat spot on her little ol' head. He recommended stretching and an Infant Head Bed, which is sort of like a partial doughnut pillow that babies can't smother on while sleeping. It just takes the pressure off and makes it easier for us to manipulate her head while Paloma is asleep. More tummy time (or as we like to call it, "torture time") is indicated. Joy.
Which brings us to:
Early Intervention: Our original once per month plan is now a once every week or every two weeks plan. We are not afraid to say that we need help in the tummy time/toy department. It may just be that Paloma is only technically 7 weeks old -- that's her adjusted age -- but she's just not that into playtime yet.
Vomit: Paloma can launch her spit up a whole foot and a half. Pretty rad, yeah?
