Life with Three Under Three: First Month

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls.

Month one of life with three under three is complete. As quickly as it came, it passed and I sit reflecting on one of the craziest most beautiful months of my life. In late September we welcomed the most precious little girl into the world, and we are all obsessed with her.

Feeding and Growing
By her 1 month appointment we were pleased to see that she had made it back up to her birth weight. I was even told I could wean off the supplement of formula. We decided it was good for our family to have that one feeding with dad.  During the evening feed (usually while watching the Miami Heat, or Baseball) I am able to do bath and bed with the older girls. It's a good time of just reconnecting with them without feeding. If time allows, I will try to pump.  However, I've stopped forcing it in order to have uninterrupted time with my girls.

Toddlers

The big girls (17 and 32 months) are thriving. The eat well, most of the time sleep well, the play well together and with their little sister. 

The only noticeable regression has been with potty training. My oldest was fully potty trained at home during the day, and pretty good at her grandparents home. However, when the baby came 3 weeks before we anticipated, we lost it. Unfortunately I wasn't able to be as consistent with her to help solidify the new skill and we are back in diapers. [Insert Tears].

I was excited to be chosen by Influenster to try some of the new Pampers Easy Ups. We will be using them in the next few weeks when I tackle potty training again. Wish me luck, I'm going to potty train both girls together...




Any tips from those who have successfully potty trained their children?
