Hey man, Congratulations!

Having a kid was the best thing I ever did, and I have no doubt you'll feel similar.

That's a big, healthy baby, and Abigail is a cute name.

Best of luck, and again, CONGRATS!

Must be the first one.

A couple tips from a fellow dad:

1) Move them out of your room and into their crib after a couple weeks, assuming they are sleeping alright between feedings. I think the doctors and baby books recommend like 2 months or something before moving them into their own room, but you will likely find yourself wide awake at the smallest of noises. Get a baby monitor, and get them in their own room, and you will find your sleeps improve immensely.

2) If you don't already have one, get a motorized swing like this: http://www.toysrus.ca/product/index.jsp?productId=4424052
My kid would take the best naps in that thing.


You'll probably find everything easier and more enjoyable than you thought it would be. Enjoy, my friend!

First three weeks are the hardest... if you can make it through that, then you're golden... until they start crawling... then walking... then talking... then talking back at you... then asking for money... then... ahhh you get the picture.

Have the monitor and the swing. Good to know about moving them out after 2 weeks. Thanks.

Congrats! I'm surprised you didn't name her Alfiegail Sarcasm But don't worry, that's what we'll call her.

We did that with our daughter. Moved her into her own room after a few weeks once we were comfortable with it. Made for better sleeping for us for sure and helps to get them sleeping on their own.

Ours were all premies. First one spent over a month in the NICU. One of the conditions for release was that they last through the night without any apnea spells (that's where they stop breathing, the alarms go off and the nurse casually walks over and strokes them on the foot or any other part exposed, and 99% of the time that's all it takes). Well, you can imagine we didn't really sleep much the first few nights (no heartbeat monitor to let us know all is well).

Of course at 8.7 lbs I doubt you have any of that to worry about; ours just barely tipped the scales at 5 when we brought him home (more than a month later). Now he is 15, 5'10 and closing in on 190 lbs. And I still worry about him.
