3 weeks and some change…

Hi all! My little peanuts are three weeks and some change at this point. Both are doing fabulous! They are the SWEETEST babies ever!!! They only cry when they are hungry or wet. They both have the best personalities and are so laid back. We are truly blessed!

So in a nutshell the past three weeks has flown by! I blame the majority of that on Harper’s NICU stay. Going back and forth to the hospital every day made things go by really fast. Then we had our parents in town for a week, which was amazing. I cried for days after they left.

I started off breastfeeding/pumping but long story short it was too much for me and rather than stress out about it, I stopped. The first two weeks though they got almost exclusively breastmilk, mostly by bottle. Neither seemed interested in latching, which was a huge deciding factor in me quitting. Feeding, then pumping was extremely stressful. So they are both on Enfamil Gentle ease which is working out pretty good. Tucker seems pretty uncomfortable a lot, grunts often, not sure why but will definitely mention at their next appt. It may be formula related. We originally had them on Enfamil high calorie for preemies, then went to Similac for fussiness/gas/etc. and now are on the Gentle ease. If the DR thinks the grunts are formula related I will probably try a lactose free formula. My older two were lactose intolerant. They both are taking 2-3 oz every 2-3 hrs and had a great weight gain at their 2 week appt.

Not much else really to report. They keep me so busy but I love every minute of it!! I am exhausted, and am lucky to squeeze in 2 meals a day but wow is it worth it to see their sweet faces! I will try and update as much as I can, but it is hard to make time for this blog. I am on FB, and post on there constantly, so if you want you can friend me on there…Jessica Sokol. Until next time, much love!! xoxo

  1. I just love them! I’m actually toying with the idea of switching to gentlease tomorrow after meeting with the doctor as our fortifying the similac sensitive isn’t going well this week.

    Glad to hear you are doing well and the twins too!

    • Thanks love!! Xo

      Good luck at the dr. I know finding the right formula can be tough, I hope you do soon. The gentle ease is really good! 🙂
