I am excited to tell you that Baby #3 finally made his appearance! “Iggy” (as he’ll be known here) could be the world’s sweetest baby…I know I am biased, but the snuggles from this one are totally irresistible!
He’s 8 pounds, 4 ounces of lovable, smooshy baby.
He loves to eat, sleep, and coo.
And he is totally into this dog…
We feel so lucky to have him in our lives. Adjustment to being a 5-person household has had ups and downs. On the upside: his brothers are enamored with him. He sleeps well enough. We took an outing with all 5 of us to the doctor and arrived on time (admittedly, we may have started walking out the door 40 minutes before the appointment, even though the office is 15 minutes away). On the downside, I have been suffering from postpartum high blood pressure issues, which we are just seeming to get a handle on after an ER visit and a cocktail of medications. Potty training has gone down the tubes, and my previously pee-trained 2 year old has readopted diapers.
And his brothers…
Before Iggy arrived, Nuby sent over their Natural Touch Store N’ Feed Breastmilk Storage Containers – I am in LOVE with this product! I have been pumping extra milk so that my husband and other family members can enjoy feeding the baby, too (and so the baby gets used to a bottle for when I go back to work in 6 weeks).
These containers are high quality, easy to store, and the lids can be switched out for a Nuby Natural Touch bottle nipple when you are ready to feed your baby. I really wish I had these containers for my first two boys, as we used a mishmash of bags (messy) and bottles (inconvenient) to store milk. The baby seems to like the natural shape of the bottle nipples, too. You can buy the storage containers at Amazon or IdealBaby.com.
