Where does all the laundry come from?

Elizabeth had her second bath today!  She didn't seem impressed but we all survived the experience without major trauma.

 

We are still generating laundry at an alarming rate.  I know babies create a lot of extra laundry, but I didn't realize that most of it would be mine!  Needless to say I'm still trying to get the hang of not soaking everything in milk.  Supposedly breastfeeding ladies are supposed to be able to feel when their milk "lets down" (and take evasive action), but so far I tend not to notice until I'm sitting in a puddle of milk or hear the sound of splashing by my feet.  Midwife Kim gave me some disposable breast pads and suggested I check out a product called LilyPadz, so we'll see if these ideas help.

 

We're also still using disposables diapers (130 so far!) because Elizabeth is really too small for the cloth ones we have.  We tried a cloth one on today just for fun; we figure she needs to put on at least another pound before they will work properly.

 

In other news, Elizabeth can now officially roll from tummy to back on a flat surface without assistance and has done so multiple times.  We tried to get this on video but by the time we got the camera out she was practicing flailing her legs and arms instead and getting frustrated by not being able to lift her head and shoulders on her own.
