No one will ever truly prepare you for the days that come after your sweet little one comes home. Sleeping, Eating, Exercising, Lounging and even getting dressed is such a production…and that’s just the baby.
Patience is the key for me, my baby has been through so much in the past two weeks, more than most newborns have to go through. Logan has had five IV’s already placed in various parts of his body, a feeding tube now his nose and over 50 glucose tests on his poor little feet. He is such a trooper though, so strong, but it’s definitely effected him.
It’s been a week since Logan officially came home, even though he is three weeks old, the time when most moms start to adjust and get a routine with their little one I am only beginning. Logan likes to get his naps, which helps because then I can shower and have a banana at least. However, every time he is awake he screams bloody murder, unless of course dad is holding him at night. I’ve tried everything but I feel so in the dark to his needs, but I will keep trying.
It will get easier in time and I have to believe that because every mom says it does but the adjustment period has been a little rough. If I sleep I’ll wake up within ten minutes thinking I’m hearing him cry, he isn’t and he is soundly sleeping but the phantom crying haunts me.
It’s a strange new world but we are figuring it out together… me and my little man!
