My gosh, I'm astounded at the difference between my first son and this one. He's 8 days old, and I have a co sleeper, but of course, he doesn't use it, LOL. My husband jokes it was a "great investment". He does not like to be put down and loves to cuddle against me. It is so awesome to have a little one near me again. The hospital I delivered in was great, and my nurse was great, and great with me co sleeping while there. This child is a fiend for the breast though, and nursed like a champ as soon as he was born. But the thing is, he doesn't fuss! Not like my first, who I swear screamed through the first three months. Oh yeah, he gets to crying when he's hungry and I'm getting him changed, or sponging him, or stuff, but he'll just let you hold him and look all around at everything. He's doing great at night, too, already. If I let him sleep with me, he'll go 3-4 hours between waking at night. I'm astounded. I remember walking the floor for hours and hours with my first while he screamed and nothing satisfied him (colic sucks). But anyway, I just wanted to say how different my kiddoes are...
Oh, and big brother is doing well with "baby brother" with the exception of being super whiney, but he loves him. He was laying in his car seat and Nathan was sitting on the floor by him and I overheard him say "baby brother I love you" and he has to have me help him hold him at least once a day. I'm sure we'll have some jealous days, but so far so good. :)
