Cast number 2

I've been holding out on updating the blog for fear of jinxing Nolan's good behavior. We went to see Dr. Shoemaker on Monday night and he was pleasantly surprised how well cast #1 helped to straighten out his foot. His leg of course will be slower at correcting.

As for adjusting, He slept ok Monday crying but very fidgety. Since we co-sleep I got kicked with a heavy plaster cast all night. Plus he was up at 7:30 where he usually wakes up at 9 after a 7:00 feed. Tuesday went better. No fidgeting but he was up at 7:30 but went back down around 8:30 so I could get a shower. Hoping by tomorrow we are 100% back to normal...or as normal as is gets in the cast.

So far we haven't had to use any Tylenol for cast 2 but I do notice his patience is shorter in the cast then not casted. If something bothered him before he would fuss a little before we go straight to wailing. Other than that he has been great.

Baby wearing has also gotten way easier! He does really well in our Tula carrier (kinda like an Ergo but WAY better!). I have also been using a ring sling for quick up and downs. It's working great for short trips or quick chores around the house but he will not sleep in it. I guess he likes the big hug feeling of his carrier vs. the sling. Pictures to come of how we have been managing to baby wear with the casts!
