At 8 weeks old you are completely sleeping through the night. You are usually asleep by 11pm and wake at either 6 or 7. When school starts you will be on a 3 hour schedule starting at 6. I am hoping that we can get you to sleep before 11pm consistently on that schedule.
Unfortunately, nursing is not going so well. I am baffled by you. Sometimes you will nurse without so much as a whimper and other times you will scream and fight to stay latched on. It's not a production problem. So either (1) you are too lazy - breastfeeding requires more work on your part or (2) you are too nosey and want to be able to see what's going on around you. So sadly enough I am weaning you to a bottle. I tried pumping on a regular basis so that we could at least keep you on breast milk instead of formula, but with 3 other kids to take care of it just wasn't happening. You were already taking 2-4oz. in a bottle after every nursing session anyway. As of today you nurse first thing in the morning with no supplement. Your 9am and 3pm feeds are all formula (5-6oz.) and the rest of your feeds are nursing + 2-4oz. of formula. I think it is awfully bizarre that my two "big" babies were not good nursers and my two peanuts were nursing champs! Something else that is weird is I was the most diligent with you in watching what I ate and drank and yet you have been highly unappreciative! :)
You go next week for your 2 month check up (and shots - sniff sniff). I am pretty confident you will be weighing in at a whopping 10 pounds (maybe slightly more). That is a whole pound more than what Kinley weighed at this same age. Who knows maybe...just maybe...I will have one kid who is a great eater!
