The last 3 weeks have been different. Nothing could prepare me for what was coming up! The sleepless nights are the worst, sometimes when breastfeeding at night I just fall asleep with the baby on my chest and wake up 3 hours later, sometimes I don’t realise that the next feed is due and think Freddie just won’t settle. There is no point for the hubby to get up as he doesn’t have the key accessory but I must say he is amazing with settling the baby down. And how loud little babes can be! The amount of noises and emotions happening in baby’s sleep is endless. He melts my heart though when he grumbles, smiles and then laughs in his sleep.
We go for walks in a sling, it’s so easy, we have a very busy social schedule, baby massage (he wasn’t very impressed), breastfeeding cafe (we love it), all sort of appointments and visitors. We are currently looking for baby buddies locally too.
Eating is an issue. For me that is. With the baby restless and awake it’s very difficult to prepare a meal. Before his birth I got a freezer full of home cooked dinners but we are on the last one now. Today I was cooking at 3.00pm just as he was asleep, it’s a luxury to have a healthy lentil soup for supper tonight and I am looking forward to it a lot!
Freddie bathes in a bucket type bath and he loves it. He hates the stage of getting naked and going into water but once in he really enjoys it stretching his feet up.
So this blog might change focus for a little, at least till the initial 6 weeks are over. I have lots of the area to show you and the house has changed into a home now however there is still a lot to do.
A quick note re this month’s magazines. Posh on the cover of Vogue and Cheryl Cole on the cover of ELLE. Why???
