It's winter, when a mild sniffle can put her off food for several days, and also a dump either way makes a difference to the numbers. She is absolutely perfect just the way she is.

I know. I’m just kidding ☺️

Her rolls are pretty darn cute

Very cute baby. I was actually a bit scared of mine because newborns are so tiny but I'm over that now and just want to cuddle them (I give them back when they need changing).

She loves cuddles.

 

I’ve never been that keen on holding other people’s little babies so it was pretty scary holding my own one at first.

I left her in the same singlet for like 3 days when she was born because I was terrified of putting any clothes on her over her little head, so I would only zip her in bonds wondersuits, it’s definitely pretty surreal at first when you have a baby and you have no idea what your doing.

You figure it out pretty quick, I was quite surprised at the hospital they literally just left me to it, like I could ask for help but unless you ask they don’t help you.

Too many guns & not enough dolls in your childhood

I made these hand and foot casts the other day, I’ll have another go because these ones have a few faults but pretty happy with them as a first attempt

My dreamy sleepy baby has turned into an ordinary newborn now who sleeps for an hour and a half at a time and wakes me often in the night then gets windy and spews all over me.

I’m still loving it though, a bit more sleep deprived.

I do miss Chris now he’s gone back to work it’s a bit harder to get all my jobs done but I’m still out stacking firewood when baby is asleep and getting everything done it just takes longer.

@Daley are you feeding her lying down .

If she wakes and squirms 20 mins after a feed it's probably cause she has an air bubble in her tummy .

My milk came out like a high pressure hose causing my babies to gulp air .

If I kept their spine vertical as I fed them the air  vented off as they fed .

It was a pain having to sit up in the middle of the night but they settled better ..

I feed her in the lazy boy she’s lying down but on a bit of an angle so her head is higher than her feet.

Ive tried feeding her upright and I didn’t think it made too much difference.

If I feed her before she’s too hungry she drinks a lot slower but when she’s ravenous she gulps air and that’s when she gets bad wind, I try to just feed her all the time so she’s not being a guts when she gets a feed.

Also I express some milk out if there’s too much to slow down the flow a bit, I’m building up a stash in the freezer to donate to the milk bank for babies who are sick or mums can’t produce milk, but I have to go get a blood test for hep C and I’m dragging my heels because I hate needles.

Who doesn't hate needles.

When bubs gets bigger they can suck everything without getting air .

If you are still feeding at year old they can empty you to be like a flat balloon .

Oh, she has such lovely eyes.

They’re a beautiful blue still, I can’t wait to see what colour they’re going to be but apparently it can take 9 months to 2 years for them to change colour.

It will be a minor miracle if they’re not brown

@Daley I think  the most significant early milestone is when you can sit them up propped up with a pillow.

It frees their hands up to grab things . They can really start to get the hang of toys then .

I’d say we’re a while away from that ☺️ I’m more entertaining myself than anything, I play with the toys ? she just supervises
