Birth to BLW status updates - February

Second babies? Forgotten everything about breast and formula, napping and wrapping and you are are going a bit MAD because you haven't slept in three days? Or it's your first baby and you are here researching the joys of weaning?

Apparently we're feeding every 1.5hrs tonight. Sigh. I can't believe a mummy friend I met on the bus asked if he was sleeping through yet!

Was chatting to another mum today as we both fed our babies in the parents room at John Lewis. Randomly our babies were exactly the same age and more or less the same weight. Her baby is also EBF but her baby is also pretty much sleeping through the night! Jealous... Me? Never!! Oh well, just had a 5 hour stretch. Can't complain too much!

Yesterday after the screaming ended I got 6 hours.

Tonight after proper naps & no real issues I get 3 hours & then 2.

Jinxed it.. 1.5hrs later and she's feeding again!

I find the same thing happens with us b&m. I always assume its because she's fed so much instead of sleeping that her tummy is fuller but who knows!!

Woo, got 2.5 hrs that time! I'm worried as he was only taking 1 side overnight and it was always the right. I've just tricked him into taking the left by tucking him under my arm. He has a cold and I'm concerned one of his ears hurts if he won't lie on that side :(

Oh good, another nighttime poo (if this still counts as nighttime!)

Hey y'all. Lots of night feeding last night for R too. And it was soooo cold! Yanked an extra blanket off the shelf and managed to pull a big basket of clothes on my head in the middle of the night. Oh the fun we have in the early hours of the morning.

Think R is a bit off after his jabs. Grumpuss yesterday and pretty unsettled the last 2 nights. Excessively cute though, so I can't hold it against him. ;)

Kitten fed double her normal but it's because she was snacking :scream 5 minutes is not enough when you normally have 20!! She's all snuffly though. DH had a bad night (beer induced no doubt!) so has stayed home & taken Bruno to school so I can sit around in pjs. If only I could get back to sleep!!
