hello family!!!

this week has been quite an adventure figuring out the whole breastfeeding-diaper-change-sleep-deprivation thing! we’re slowly but surely developing our own systems for each situation… © Photo by Ardith Ibañez Nishii

I ordered a special nursing pillow that wraps around me + has back support + it arrived yesterday. now all of a sudden I feel so much more relaxed. it has completely alleviated my back pain + allowed me to have both hands free while cedro eats! YAY!

now that cedro is eating for longer periods of time (20-30 min per boob) he’s also sleeping longer. up to 4 hours sometimes! he’s definitely hitting the 3hr mark more easily.

so it goes without saying that we’re enjoying getting to know Baby C!
