William has gained a whole pound since last week! Wow…! He’s now just over 9lb :-) & he’s three weeks tomorrow!
Gosh, how time flies :’)
Breast and bottle feeding
I didn;t get much sleep last night at all. The baby was up nearly all night and his daddy didn’t feel well so i didn’t really wake him up.
But guess what? Daddy’s got him for tonight! Yay :-) We tried bottle feeding today and it didn’t confuse him or anything at all! In fact, i think he found it easier to latch onto my breast after feeding from the bootle :)
I’m not using formula milk! Today’s the first day i expressed milk with a breast pump. Gosh, it feels weird, haha! I hate the noise my breasts make when the milk comes out and i don’t look at the pump because i just find it disturbing. I feel like a cow, haha!
My fiancee’s actually lying next to me, reading this and making fun of me! How nice of him, eh? :)
Anyway, just thought i would let you all know how i got on with breast and bottle feedig, blah, blah, blah and i think i’m gonna get some sleep now, because the baby’s waking up and if i don;t go to sleep i’ll just end up looking after him myself, haha!
Ahh well. N’night! :-)
My clever little boy is not even 2 weeks yet and he can breast and bottle feed without getting confused!
Looks like daddy’s on night duties tonight :-)
I feel like a cow sitting, expressing milk, haha!
I know it’s quite late but i thought i would write a little post/update thing while my bath is getting ready.
The past few days have been the best days of my life! And they are definitely flying by far too fast! Won’t be long ‘till my baby boy’s 16 if he keeps growing this fast :-)
His cord fell off today. Yay! I must admit, it’s one of the strangest things ever! It just decides to fall off one day and then, all there is, is a belly button, hahaha! I know i’m making it sound more weird than it probably is but i just found it quite freaky. The midwife told us to keep the belly button clean once the cord falls off but i was so freaked out by the whole thing i had to get my fiancee to do it. It looked sore/freaky/weird… oh, i just couldn’t :$
William sucked on his thumb for the first time 3 or 4 days ago… He was in the bath with his daddy and he sucked his finger! It sounds like nothing but when you see your baby do anything for the first time.. it’s wonderful :’) His first smile was one of the most amazing smiles i’ve ever seen too! It made my day a whole lot brighter!!!
So far baby is doing really well. He didn’t lose weight after birth, yay! He went from 7lb 8.5oz to 7lb 11oz and then 8lb 1oz! I was really happy when the midwifes told me he was feeding well. I was always worried incase he wasn’t getting enough food or he wasn’t dirtying enough nappies but, obviously, so far breastfeeding is going really well!
Anyway.. i’m actually sitting right next to the moses basket and every time i look at William, i still feel like crying with happiness! He looks so innocent, gorgeous and aww, words just can’t explain how much happiness he brings to this house!
Ahh well, i suppose i better finish writing now. My bath is ready, William’s due a feed anytime soon and his daddy is not feeling well so i am looking after two people i love for tonight!
If you like, you can ask me questions through Tumblr, Twitter, Youtube, whatever and i’ll try and answer any questions or comments you have! If you got to the end of this, thank you for reading. Good night & loads of love from William and I!
