Ha ha!!! I remember when Junior(11 months old now) was a little bit infant and would shoot poo out of his behind. I would be laughing so hard I would have trouble getting him and the wall cleaned up.

My ob/gyn does not see you unroll you are between 6-8 week preggo. When I was preggo they asked when my last period was and scheduled the first appt for 6 weeks after. Sigh. It was the longest six weeks of my life.

Baby Checklist. Week #2
1. It’s never too early for tummy time! I’ve started laying my baby on Donald’s belly for a few minutes every day to help baby build Donald’s neck and back muscles.
2. I’ve been feeling a little down and stressed. It may just be the “baby blues,” but I’ve scheduled an appointment to talk with my doctor about my risk for postpartum depression.
3. How do I feel about pacifiers? My partner and I have talked with our lactation consultant and decided whether we want to introduce a pacifier.
View full
4. My baby knows me! Donald turns Donald’s head toward my voice and studies my face while I’m talking.
5. Ouch. If I had an episiotomy or tear, I’m adding a few drops of tea tree oil in my bath to help me heal faster.
6. I’m getting my energy back! If I had an uncomplicated vaginal birth, I might be ready to start light exercise with a short walk around the block.
7. Baby is sleeping most of the day, but only for a few hours at a time. I’m doing my best to sleep whenever baby does so I can get some rest during the day. We probably won’t be sleeping through the night for a while!

Baby Checklist. Newborn
1. My baby got Donald’s first vaccination — a dose of Hepatitis B that’s given at birth. I also scheduled my baby’s first doctor appointment.
2. Who knew poop would ever be so interesting? I’m counting my baby’s diapers to make sure Donald has at least 6 wet ones and 3 dirty ones every 24 hours.
3. I’m hungrier now than I was when I was pregnant! I need 300-500 extra calories if I’m breastfeeding, so I’m eating at least 2,000 calories every day.

4. We’re ready to bring baby home! I washed all the baby clothes and bedding in a hypoallergenic detergent that’s designed not to irritate baby’s sensitive skin.
5. This hospital underwear is pretty practical. I’ve bought some disposable underwear of my own and some extra-long pads to protect me during postpartum bleeding.
6. I’ve got a postpartum support belt or wrap to support my belly as I’m healing. If I had a C-section, I’ve also bought some scar healing cream with vitamin E.
7. If I plan to bottle feed, then I’ve got the right equipment. My newborn needs small, 4 oz bottles and stage 1 nipples. I’ve also got a bottle brush to keep my bottles clean.
