etta (1 week old)

At 1 week old, Etta has been our easiest baby so far. She has had a few bad days where she struggles falling asleep for naps, but then has other days where all she does is sleep. She nurses every 2-3 hours and has given us some stretches at night longer than 3.5 hours (and would go longer if it wasn't for engorgement and my needing to wake her up). She absolutely loathes being cold more than just about anything else. Elden and Edith are pretty obsessed with her and we find ourselves telling them to give her space multiple times per day because they can be a bit smothering. Etta sleeps in a pack-n-play next to our bed and is still wearing newborn diapers and clothes. However, we are almost out of newborn diapers and will likely just move onto size 1 since we have plenty of those. She is a very cuddly little girl and we spend most of our days holding her--soaking up what is likely to be the last newborn in our family.
