I had every intention of going to the breastfeeding group today, but it seems this little one is hitting her 4 week growth spurt right on time and I am still in my pajamas at noon.
It’s the thought that counts, right? At least I was able to take her to the grocery store (all by myself!) yesterday.
Pram yesterday and boba wrap today- having my mom here to help has made me a big more adventurous. we’ve been to the osteopath, lunch at the pub, afternoon tea, birth registrar, the V&A, out for coffee and shopping all this week. Being out in the fresh air has done wonders for my mental state.
Hopefully this confidence will stay on after she leaves on Sunday. I am nervous how I will cope without her help next week though. Babies as infinitely easier with 2 full time caretakers. Trying to convince my husband to quit his job and be a stay at home dad now.
My little girl sucked on the pacifier for 5 whole minutes before going to sleep.
I know it goes against the lactation consultants recommendation, but until she comes over at 1am to have my baby comfort nurse a layer of skin off her bruised nipple- I’ll stick with the lazy mummy dummy.
She is officially out of newborn onesies that fit. Just took them out of her drawer 14 hours shy of her being 3 weeks old.
0-3 all the way from now on!
I’ve posted this before- but
Happy Mother’s Day everyone, especially to those who are celebrating their first this year!

this baby, I’ll tell you.
fed her for an hour at 1pm. Nipple started shutting down so I topped up with a bottle supplement as midwife suggested. She then drank 2.5oz on top of the breast milk.
So this girl who has been eating every 45 min- 1hr up until 2 days ago has been asleep since 3.
Is this for real? My boobs haven’t secretly started dispensing NyQuil, right?
I mean I ate a meal, did the dishes, peed twice, sent out cards, and just had some quiet time. I feel almost functional.
I am putting this here because I am sure this is the only time this will happen in the next 3 months.
