Tucker at 3 weeks old

Tucker is 3 weeks old now!  I’m having trouble remembering what day it is. I had to stop and think for a minute just now.  Tuesday.  They’re currently BOTH SLEEPING.  This will probably only last for about 30 minutes.

Our house is a crazy mess right now.  It’s really hard to get anything done with two kids.  Tucker likes to nurse approximately every single hour.  He’s a fast nurser though so it only lasts about five minutes but still.  Every hour.  If we want to go anywhere, it always involves a feeding while out.

(Tucker’s nap actually lasted only 20 minutes here).

Here are the Tucker Facts at 3 weeks old:

Wearing: size 3 month onesies! He can still fit into some NB pants though because he has the world’s skinniest legs.

Weight: ??  He has his one month appointment next week so I’ll find out then.  At 1 week old, he was 8lb 4oz so I would guess about 9 pounds now?

Diapers: We just switched from newborn to size 1 diapers because we used up all the NBs that we had.  We go through about 6 diapers a night and maybe 15 a day total!

Likes: Nursing, white noise, being carried around, the swing some times, nursing, nursing, nursing

Dislikes: pacifiers, his car seat unless he’s tired and the car is moving, the sound of Sam playing with his metal tractor, not nursing all.the.time

Sleep: He takes a bunch of short naps throughout the day and occasionally has a longer afternoon nap (1.5 -2 hours).  Night time is still random.  Last night he slept for his longest stretch yet, about 5 hours but normally they’re 2-3 hour stretches, so he’s waking about 3-4 times a night.  Surprisingly Aaron and I are dealing with this much better than we did with Sam.

Nicknames: Sam started calling him Tucker Baby and now we all call him that.

Time it takes to get out of the house: About 2 hours for a 30 minute trip

Sam is up now!  Must go!


One thought on “Tucker at 3 weeks old

  1. Totally understand how you feel about nursing. My little one will be three months and around 1 month I felt like all he did was want to nurse every hour to hour and a half. I almost felt like I was reading a blog about my life and son as many things sound so familiar! He’s a doll!
