Hitting the Newborn Jackpot

To say that our first newborn experience was stressful would be a bit of an understatement. As much as we love our little Martian, he was a handful as an infant. He wouldn’t breastfeed, he was constantly puking up what he did eat, and he was an almost non-stop screamer until 3 months. About the only times he’d sleep is when he was wrapped up tight and held, so Shauna and I had to take turns making him get some sleep.

Nathan has been a total departure from all of these things. He’s a breastfeeding champ and keeps it all down. When he does cry, it’s just long enough to get our attention. And the super-duper bonus bit? He’s not even two weeks old and is already sleeping through the night. I think we maybe earned this one.

    That’s usually how it works. My first one was easy, second had colic and way fussy a lot. I’m glad you’re already able to get some good rest, it’s necessary with a newborn AND a toddler!
