Your first week with us has been pretty calm. You so far seem to be a sweet natured little boy. I spent a lot of time praying for you before you were ever born, or conceived, that you would have a calm disposition like your dad and so far that is holding true.
My favorite thing about you so far is that you can be awake and happy. Your older sister was NEVER happy at this age. NEVER. If she was awake then she was crying. You will lock eyes with us a just stare or look around the room. It is so so wonderful. If you haven't had a baby with colic then you can't fully appreciate a non colicky baby.
You've been eating great overall. I have hypothyroidism (under active thyroid that I take hormones for but can be super unpredictable after birth) so I knew going in that formula would most likely be apart of your diet. My milk came in the day after you were born (which was great and painful) and you continued to eat really well. I've even been pumping two times a day and that was giving me enough to let your dad feed you two times a night so I could get some rest. I think your dad and I have decided though that I will continue to pump twice a day (your dad would hate, by the way, that I said we've decided because he honestly doesn't care how you get fed as long as you are healthy and happy) and use that milk when/as needed, I will continue to nurse you all day, like I do now, and your two night time bottles will be formula. As for now, that just seems to make the most sense to keep everyone fed and well rested. Example, today I nursed you all day, I had enough pumped milk for most of your night feedings, and you got 1 oz of formula because you were still a bit hungry when the pumped milk was gone. You're a really good eater during the day. Nighttime you get a bit lazy.
