I’m posting on the computer today so will hopefully be able to catch up properly Leita
How’s DS going overnight now? Still waking frequently? He’s such a cutie, thanks for posting the pic! Looks like he’s pretty content in the bath. Maya has only really started enjoying the bath over the last week- before that she’d scream the house down so bathtime was a very quick affair!Bec
I could only see one of the pics you posted a link to of your 2 cherubs, very cute! Were you happy with the end result? How’s everything going with your supply etc? Happy to have DH home to help out now? I don’t know how you managed without him, I’d be so lost without DH!
We got a few small things for Maya for xmas- a play mat, a money box and a little teething toy bunny thing. DD1 happily opened the presents on her behalf! Deejie
How’s the breastfeeding going with Daniel? I know what you mean about forgetting about how hard (and LONG!) it is with a newborn, I breastfed DD1 til she was 14 months and it was SO easy and quick then. Definitely takes a little getting used to again, especially the sitting still on the couch for 40 or so minutes at a time! LWO
Lucky you only waking once or twice a night to feed! I’m jealous! DD1 was like that, I think from memory she would have one really long block of sleep up to 8 or so hours right from birth! We were very spoilt with her. However she was very unsettled all day.
Ouch re the chomping on your nipples!
I remember that with DD1 but not until she was much older, usually when teething. Not fun.Madnesscraves
Hello! Your little girl was born the same day as mine
Although I’m sure if they were side by side, my Maya would look like a monster in comparison to your petite little Rosemary
How’s the breastfeeding going? 4 hourly feeds is great! And nice that DH does a feed to give you a good break too.Feather
Abby still settling well for you? Makes such a difference doesn’t it! And Maya gets the hiccups every now and then too, I think she finds them a bit annoying aswell.Aly
This week Zach has been very unsettled so really haven't been getting much sleep, don't think this is helping the emotions. Kate - maybe it is something about the 3 week mark cause our bubs are the same age!
Oh I am SO hearing you on the emotions. I’ve shed plenty of tears since Maya was born, believe me! I’m just not cut out for this newborn stuff. And definitely think the 2-3 week mark is tough work. Glad we’re through it… til the next challenging week! (Think I read that the next growth spurt is usually around 6 weeks). Not looking forward to that.Kindle
did you end up braving the boxing day sales? Get any bargains? DH and I went shopping yesterday (the 27th) and it was crazy!Bec
I found this link pretty interesting when I was googling the 2-3 week growth spurt last week:http://kellymom.com/bf/normal/growth-spurt.html
Check it out! Hope things are settling down for you both AFM
As I said, Maya has been a lot more settled this week. Not a great sleeper throughout the day- loves to be held constantly!- but overnight she is okay. Generally she goes down for the night around 9pm, and usually wakes for a feed around midnight-1am, then 4-5am and then after that we’re lucky if we get a good sleep out of her. So she seems to sleep well when it’s really dark but not so much if it’s light. Weird.
I’ve personally been struggling a bit and have had to up my antidepressant dosage unfortunately
I had PND with DD1 and was hoping to avoid the same this time around but am finding that my anxiety has been getting the better of me occasionally. I just don’t cope well with sleep deprivation and all of the uncertainty that comes with having a newborn- it does my head in. Am feeling better this week than last, and am hoping that I continue to improve. The scary/horrible thing about PND is that you can be fooled into thinking that you’re on the mend but can then quickly fall back down again. It’s kind of a 2 steps forward, 1 step back kind of thing. Anyway, fingers crossed.
Feed time again… off to the couch I go
