Ladies any tips on settling a 36 hour bub? She seems to latch on fine but can't settle her after feeds...so tired.
Why is it night duty mid wives suck?
She is on boob for half hour each side...although I don't have much luck burping?
Geez I use to burp him for ages and still wouldn't settle.
I think after 24hrs of being out they kind of wake up and are more unsettled, the birth totally exhausts them so the first bit they tend to sleep a lot.
My boy was a little hot so taking some of the wraps off helped, but having said that, he didn't settle much at all and was super fussy. A massive shock to the system hey?! Are you able to sleep during the day at all? A nap or two helps.
Some of the nurses are right old b@$;ches aren't they? Try not to let them get to you, it's hard enough being a new mum without some nurse being harsh and expecting you to know what your doing.
Your doing great I bet xx
Thanks lady's for all the well wishes I will post as soon as I am able too a pic and up date the C - Section is scheduled for 2.30pm can't wait to her her cry and know all is ok.
Hope everyone is well xox
If she doesn't settle, don't feel too bad, she has been thru a lot and is now in the big bad world, it's daunting for them I'd imagine.
Make sure you have some snacks handy to get you thru the nights to keep your energy up.
It's probably your milk coming in... She'll probably cluster feed and be unsettled till it comes through..., bare with it... Get DH to pace with her if he is around, the rocking motion should be familiar to her from you walking around, make sure he holds her really tight.., good luck!!
Ivy is gorgeous!!!!!! And myles is a little replica of his mum lol.

Oh and I was told breast fed babies shouldn't need to be burped as they don't gulp air like bottle fed babies
