Mg and Digby: I woke him last night from his long sleep - but he still had a good 3 or so hours. He still didn't go down till 11 then he woke up and I burped him, he was hungry again so I fed him - and he chucked up the whole feed so I fed him again not getting to bed till 12 yawn! He is now having a morning sleep - but think this is probably the bit if sleep he missed from 10 - 12 last night and hope this doesn't push his bedtime back further... His arvo nap started later yesterday cos we were out. Maybe this is the start of a long morning sleep? That would be nice! Digby: are u following any sort of routine or demand feeding? I sort of was but have now chucked it cos I got a blocked duct so need to feed him more frequently. Your afternoons sound busy!! Enjoy the break with the school holidays also on he formula thing maybe speak to a lactation consultant? And our bubbas are going through a growth spurt this week so will be feeding more often tk build up our supply O is the same too! It seems as soon as he finishes he soon enough is rooting around for more.
Livvyloo: lol on the nude question I was thinking like u 2 and shopped around for a 'labour outfit' but I ended up just wearing what i had on at the time and then having a bath for pain relief and then when u get out u r concentrating so hard on managing the contractions u don't think about the nudity. It was also lovely at the end to be nude and have bubby put straight on my chest for skin to skin and bf ing nude up I say and go the bath it rocks
