Hey does any one know how often you need to express to keep your milk supply up - 100% expressing...thanks!
I put Orlando to bed at 8.35am to see if I could get 2 hours out of him...he woke at 9.15 so I just went in there and put his dummy in to resettle...did that every couple of mins until about 9.30...I didn't need to pick him up and he's sleeping again...hopefully he'll stay asleep as I want to keep him in bed until 10.35! More than half way there though with no massive dramas so far! At 10.15 it would have been 3 hours since his last bottle too! Winning!
Not offended Amy...I don't disagree with you but some babies are tougher than others to resettle. I worked on the first nap of the day and she now gets 1.5 hours most days for that nap. To settle her I had to leave her to cry as if I go in she gets too excited.
I have slept with her comforter, even slept with her sheets, put in block out blinds and been consistent on the nap routine but I still get a catnapper. Obviously id love not to have one
We're not getting much sleep on today... E have carpenters here being noisy... Might have to go for a long drive!
Hmm Orlando has had more sleep today and seems really tired!! I guess that's the same as us when we have more sleep?? He had one sleep cycle just now, was wide awake but had him up for 15 mins having a cuddle and he started winging and now is asleep again!!! Always worry isn't there???!!!!!
Poor baby his gums are flaring up and just wouldn't settle properly after his bottle at 6.45...ended up giving him panadol and bonjela and another bottle at 9.30...hope he stays asleep now and feels better the poor thing his cheeks are sooooo red! I wonder how long teething lasts for....hate seeing him in pain : ( I want his first tooth to break through so that at least he has something to show for it!!!!
Oh and worse headache tonight...must be stress! Looking forward to my massage tomorrow night...it's only an hour but that's enough for now!! It's gonna hurt heaps my back is sore sore sore after rocking Orlando to sleep hehe my little heavyweight!
