The importance of Poop...

Through out my life I've never thought of, waited for, worried about poop as much as I am doing for the past 11 weeks.
Oh, the joy of being regular!!! Noah is having some difficulty with poo frequency. He pretty much goes every three days. In the meantime he releases gas so loud like he is a grown man that just ate a bunch of spicy hot dogs!
Man does it smell...
But he doesn't seem to be uncomfortable. He was having some major gas issues so I ended up buying "Happy Baby" Gripe Water. It helps him. He calms down within five minutes and is good for hours.
I switched his bottles to Playtex Ventaire and I recommend them to anyone that has a gassy baby. Since switching him he literally has no gas pains. But the poo still arrives once in three days.
Now enough about poop.
Noah is doing amazingly! I have been so sick for the past week and I am coughing, sniffling, sneezing I have a horrible headache and sore throat and by all symptoms it's either a cold or a flu.
Luckily he didn't get it .
:) Mommy's milk is doing wonders :)
He also started sleeping through out the night. He falls asleep at 11.45 and wakes up at 6.45 eats and continues sleeping for another 3 hours. At 9.45 he eats again, gets a fresh diaper and plays a bit with me and DH after which he naps again! He loves to sleep.
As far as feeding goes, he is really good there as well.
He breastfeeds every 3-4 hours and at night before bedtime he gets a bottle of Enfamil Premium anywhere between 4 and 6 ounces.
I'm so grateful to God that he gave me a healthy child...
