etta (3 weeks old)

At 3 weeks old, Etta has gotten somewhat better at sleeping at night--we get the occasional 4 or 5 hour stretch. That being said, she seems to be going through her first major growth spurt and was up to nurse about every 2.5 hours last night. Naps are pretty awful--Etta will be asleep in our arms but once we lay her down in her crib she either wakes up within 5 minutes up to an hour. We are pretty sure she has some reflux issues so we will be mentioning that at her next well visit. Etta is really starting to love her baths and tummy time. She also actively looks for Elden and Edith when they are in the room and she can hear them. Etta nurses every 3 hours during the day for about 7-10 minutes at a time. She is starting to grab onto things when they are placed in or near her hands. I think smiles might be in our not so distant future and I can't wait for that and belly laughs!
