month 1

on February 11, 2013

in Cora’s first month of life, she had her first sponge bath, her umbilical cord stump fell off around week 2, and then she got her first real bath. she started to pick her head up after a couple of days, and by the end of the month, she had really good control over it. she really enjoys the bath, and really doesn’t like tummy time. most of her day is spent sleeping, but everyday she spends more time awake and alert. she started to respond to the sounds of J and my voices, and she began to focus more on us when we held her. she cries only when she is hungry, tired, needs a diaper change, or needs us to move around, or hold her in a different position. she also struggles to have bowel movements. but when she cries, she SCREAMS. she definitely has a great set of lungs, and isn’t afraid to use them. sometimes it is almost humorous how loud she gets. other times, it gets me pretty frazzled because I just don’t know what I’m doing wrong, or what I can do to comfort her.

Cora is wearing newborn sized diapers and they were really big when she was first born, but they are starting to get pretty small. she is also filling out newborn sized clothing better.

favorites
Cora – fischer price swing which was a hand-me-down from one of my bosses, the fischer price snug-a-bunny bouncer which is a loaner from Cora’s cousin, fischer price my little lamb bassinet also on loan from cousin G and where Cora sleeps in our room next to our bed, and the moses basket which was a gift from my mom.

Me – Lanisoah lanolin is a god send for sore nipples from breastfeeding, Lanisoah disposable breast pads to help with unpredictable lactating. I had made my own but they really don’t work. the disposable ones are worth it, in my opinion. gerber mittens because I’m too scared to clip Cora’s nails and I don’t want her to scratch her pretty face, summer infant swaddle me swaddle – Cora sleeps better when swaddled but she breaks out of regular swaddles with blankets, nursing tank tops – I think these are way better than bras, and my nursing cover which I made myself and has become invaluable to being able to go out.
