Iñigo is 5 weeks old in this photo. He's 7 weeks now. He's very strong and can lift his head up when doing tummy time. He's very mellow, quiet and serene. He likes cuddles. He likes them a little too much actually and refuses to be put in bed or his basket alone.
Iñigo is also very greedy. He breastfeeds all the time. All. The. Time! It's really okay since he's so heavy and healthy and long, but I'm about to go back to work in a couple of weeks. I'm supposed to be expressing and storing milk in preparation for the time I'll be away from him. But since he nurses every 2 hours, sometimes every hour, I seriously do not know how I'm going to express milk! Read this article, "Myth: Many Women Can't Produce Enough Milk for Their Baby." The baby described there, the one who has full meals and snacks in between? That's Iñigo!
I am in panic mode. I seriously hope Iñigo starts getting satisfied and give me 3-hour breaks so I can pump enough milk for him. With his ravenous appetite, I think the only solution is to bring him to the office with me!
