Happy new year to everyone
Its nice to hear what you have all been getting up to. Tracci am glad to hear Isabelle and the feeding is getting sorted.
The BF thing is such a major! There really is no preperation for how hard and disheartening it can be. We have been pretty lucky and everything seems to be going fine, but can relate from just that first week of hell and Maia losing lots of weight, I still do worry whether she is getting enough, but she is gaining weight she is probably well over 6kgs now (15lbs)and pooing and weeing until the cows come home so I guess all okay.
I kind of have lost track of how often I feed her, it all seems to go pretty much Okay with feeding her between every 2 to 4 hours depending on her day sleeps and what we are doing. She is sleeping a good 10 hours at night too from 9 or 10 pm till around 7 or 8 am since xmas eve, which was a nice present for her mummy!
Am really loving motherhood, but am going a little stir crazy which I didnt think would happen. I dont drive which doesnt help! I feel like I should be talking and playing with her constanty when she is awake, and feel guilty leaving her on the play mat! But I think its because we spend too much time together! The only time I have been away from her is one hour hairdressing appointment in week 6!!
Kristi I envy you! I really am dreading going back to work, even part time. I dont want to put bubba in day care and it makes me upset to even think about it
as I am the main income earner, its impossible for me not to work though. So am scrabbling about looking for work from home at the mo. Has everyone posted recent pics of their bubbas? Would be lovely to see them! Am going to post a couple recent ones of Maia
Take care all
