We came home from the hospital on Sunday at 4 pm or so. Fortunately, my doctor released us a day earlier than expected and we didn't have to sleep in that uncomfortable place any longer. Our first night home went a lot better than I expected. Ella Jae woke up about 4 times during the night but only because she was hungry or needed a diaper change. Between time we got home and early morning, we had changed 9 dirty diapers. I know babies go through a lot but couldn't believe we had already gone though that many that fast haha! We put the pack-and-play in our room and had planned to let her sleep there. BUT....she kept making noises and we couldn't see her and got nervous so we decided to put her in her Boppy and let her sleep between us. We had to be at Ella Jae's pediatrician appointment at 12:45 on Monday so we got up and got ready for the appointment. When we got home we had visitors until we went to bed. Our second night was much easier! The doctor told me to supplement with formula and I think that really helped her sleep better and be more comfortable. She only woke up once during the night last night. We fed her and put her to bed at 11:30 pm and then she woke up at 3 am and then again at 7 am! She is such a good girl! She does everything exactly like she is supposed to! She even burps each time we feed her :) She sleeps pretty much all day. She only cries when she is hungry or needs to be changed. She would probably sleep much longer if I let her but the doc told me not to let her go longer than 5 hours with out eating. Today, has been a relaxing day. We had to go to the hospital to have her Jaundice levels and now we are home relaxing which is so nice. My Grandma made us some chili so we had that for lunch and it was perfect because it is a cold rainy day. We will have some more visitors later this afternoon but it is nice hanging our as a new little family even though Ella Jae sleeps the majority of time :) We call her our little sleeping beauty :)
My two sleeping beauties this morning!
