hi everyone.... wow isn't life busy?!
soo catching up....
HappiLeigh - your little boy is Beautiful!
Naps - like many PPs, Saffie is taking a major nap in the morning, several smaller naps in the afternoon and lots of awake time in the evening. She settle's down for the night at around 9pm at the moment, waking again to feed at around 10 / 10.30 and will sleep then till about 3. Then feds again at 5 and 7. Not too bad I think!
Pumping - also made me feel good to read that 2-3oz is normal, I was getting quite worried and fed up, to the point where i stopped pumping. But then tonight DF and I popped out to see some friends for an hour leaving Saffie with DF's dad, and she wouldn't take a bottle. So i'm going to start again and encourage her to get used to a bottle so that when circumstances dictate, I can actually leave her.
weight - Saffie was 7lb5 born, and 10lb1 at 10 weeks. She seems really small compared to other babies I know who were born at the same time. DD1 was bottle fed by 6 weeks old, and by now was really very chubby, but Saffie is not. I wonder how much is to do with BFing and how much is just 'them'? DD1 really struggles with food - she is constantly hungry, and always always asking for chocolate. I read that BFed babes are less likely to have weight issues when older, and that makes me so so sad that I didn't manage to go longer for Eden, I may have made her life so much easier
Anyway poops - Saffie waits at least 3 days and then does a poo-splosion. Thankfully, all poo-splosions have happened when we've been in the house apart from one very ugly scene in a cinema. Thankfully i was on the end of a row and it was dark
Katie - Saffie loves her swing too, often naps in there very comfortably
And I love the idea of a monthly chat thread in LWAB - I would miss you ladies far too much if we were all spread out in the vast expanse that is MDC
Hope it's not so long before i an check in again
