    I am very tired and sore, had 2nd degree tears so about 10 stitches but in all different locations. I fainted. 3 times last night and unfortunately still have a catheter in, so I'm a bit bed bound.

    But the main thing is she is here safe and sound and I adore her. Here is a pic.

    Good luck mrs Simmo

    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

    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!!

    Coz no one wants to see those nurses during the day so they roster them at night

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