It’s been a few days since we started Logan on Nutramigen by Enfamil, and I have a completely new baby. He is happy, playful, & excited most of the time. Nutramigen doesn’t have milk protein in it like all other formulas including soy.
Whoever said stay at home mom’s have it easy, have lost their mind. I’m exhausted between caring for my little man, my dog, my husband, and myself. What I’ve accomplished today so far:
Fed/burped/changed Logan multiple times.
Fed/took Stevie outside multiple times.
Played with Stevie/Logan multiple times.
2 loads of laundry, hung 1, getting ready to hang the 2nd. (dryer broke!)
I got Brandon’s lunch ready, said goodbye to him & won’t see him until 4am.
I worked on photography editing, answered emails and messages.
I cleaned the bathroom, washed the sinks/counter, organized the drawers.
Left on my to-do list today:
Clean out my car before it rains.
Hand 2nd load of laundry.
Fold and put away 1st load of laundry.
Do/dry/put away the dishes.
Clean my bedroom, put new sheets on the bed.
Edit more photos.
my last words will probably be sarcastic
Last night’s sleep was terrible. Up every 45 minutes with Logan.
He watched Paw Patrol for 30 minutes while bouncing away in his jumper this morning. Had a terrible screaming episode, so I finally gave in - I woke Brandon up, handed him over, & I went outside in the rain. When I came back, I laid Logan down in his bassinet, gave him some baby naturals orajel, & gave him his bottle. He fell asleep at 1:30pm & it’s now 3:30pm. It has been the best two hours today. I feel guilty because I should’ve been working but I needed to take that time to 1. take a nap after not sleeping at all last night & 2. I ordered a Baltic Amber teething/pain relief necklace for him, & I also ordered myself a Baltic Amber bracelet, which I really hope will help with both of our pain. I’ve heard such good things about them. Here’s to hoping they’ll work for us.
Now that I’ve recuperated a little bit, I’m going to look up a few things on Pinterest for DIY things I’d like to do (whenever I have the time), sort out my to-do list for photography, work on that & get this show on the road!
I feel sick to my stomach from my anxiety/stress. I hope this will get better.
