    Everyone told me when he was born (3.135kg) that he was tiny - he certainly didn't "feel" tiny!!!
    ive just noticed in the last day or so he is really hard to settle which scares me slightly as I haven't had much experience with him screaming the house down!! Not sure if he is just irritated or if he has wind etc???
    Hopefully he gets it out of his system whilst DH is still on leave lol otherwise I don't know what I'll do!

    I think no matter the size all babies are way too big to give birth too haha.

    Oh hoots I know your anxiety on this, Henry has done this also and it is a daytime thing whilst dh is at work, cheeky monkey. In his case it is from being overtired and unless I get him to sleep it is difficult to settle him. I am reminding myself that he won't be doing this at 21 haha. Can I ask what he is doing when unsettled? Is it at a particular time or is he arching his back kind of thing?

    I agree with the recommendation of Baby love by robin barker... It was my 'go to' book with DD, and I'm back looking things up again now :-) Even downloaded it to my iPad even though I have a hard copy.

    tommi -can you PM bunnikins about adding you to the Facebook page? ...if not I will message her on FB for you...

    KD - your poor little bubba ...what a nasty time of it you must have had! ...glad to see how much improved he looks in the second photo though. Xx

    AFM - I took Patrick to a third doctor today about a nasty sore on his bottom which won't heal, and found myself sent straight to the ED department of the children's hospital. After waiting there for hours, he has been diagnosed as having an ulcerated birthmark. We are to go back tomorrow to see a specialist and learn how to take care of it (apparently they can take a year to heal!)... Am just glad that the doc today finally took action after four weeks of using an antibiotic cream and just being told to "keep doing what you are doing"!

    Jedi - let us know how you go tomorrow...

    tommi - surely they will let you take a 9 week old to the party...? I wouldn't think that 'no kids' would include newborn infants...have they told you that you can't bring him? ...if you aren't comfortable leaving him with a grandparent, then you shouldn't feel pressured to do so. If it were me, I'd probably explain to the hosts that you can't leave him, and ask would they prefer you to come and bring him, or for you to send your apologies...

    My goodness Pilbara that is awful for your LO. I hope that it heals much quicker than 1 year as it must be quite uncomfortable for him. Wow it did take the doc a long time to change treatment and look further geez! Luckily now you are on the right track.

    I will ask my friend about whether Henry can come along. I know that he will be ok with my mum or MIL I just am not sure I am ready. DH sees it as a date night so in that sense I think it would be good I am just being over protective I think haha

    We took master William back to our Fertility clinic today for show and tell! I have to say I felt extremely grateful when they saw him and all came out to have a cuddle etc.
    Without them he wouldn't be here today

    Hoots glad to hear you did that. I have been thinking about it but wasn't sure if I should or not. Our clinic is in the building next door to where I will deliver so thought if I felt up to it I could pop in on the day we leave

    Far out ladies. Have just come up for air. It's day 7 after the birth of Jack and what a whirl it's been. I only ended up staying in hospital for 3 days after the cesar, 2 nights. Doc said I could go home if I wanted and tbh I didn't think I was getting much out of staying and preferred to get home and get started anyway. So after all the pead checks and checking in with lactation consultant, off we went.

    Well, the horror show began. My milk had just come in as we left hospital and I felt confident the latching was good, but turns out Jack wanted feeding every 20 mins to an hour. He was starving and trying to bring the milk in. So in turn, he couldn't sleep for any length of time either. So there went my nips on day 4. Blistered from the workout, especially from the night feeding frenzies, we were awake on a 20 min cycle! He wasn't gaining weight either and had dropped below birth weight and still unsatiated. Nightmare.

    Luckily the midwife visited home the next day and she said my milk still wasn't fully in. Left boobie isn't producing real well, the right is doing all the work, so Jack would just want to fall asleep on my boob. And blisters! I spoke to my Sil who mix feeds and she suggested 30mls of formula to just to see us through. In the meantime I could give my nips a rest and express, and would be back in action soon. She says she destroyed her nips so much she couldn't let Bub near them for 6 weeks.

    The midwife also suggested the same strategy, so we did, and hallelujah, we're now getting 2,3 and 4 hour blocks of sleep , and Jack has gained 20gms per day . The expressing has stimulated the milk volume and nips are on their way to healing. On their way. .. Still a little gun shy. Ouch. I have every nipple remedy known to woman. But we're a much happier household.

    It's amazing you know, I was expecting the sleepless nights, constant feeding etc, but when u throw a few curve balls in there it makes everything a blurry mess. I unexpectedly had a couple of meltdowns (thought I was tough. .. lol) but when things weren't going according to plan with bf it changed EVERYTHING.

    My husband has simply been amazing. Everything from cooking and cleaning, feeding me, bringing me anything I need, helping me out of bed, changing Jack, bringing my pain meds, sending me for a shower, it brings tears to my eyes how good he's been. I simply don't know how single mums would do it.

    So we need to continue on this track for a few days and get back to square one, then we'll need to start on some sort of feeding routine. I'd love to get the 3 hourly feeds going as a regular thing.
    So how does it work for others, feed til drunk sleepy, then they sleep for 3 hours? And then how long are they awake for?

    Also, he won't sleep in his bassinet. Atm he's in our bed! Makes it easier for bfing in the night, and we get a longer sleep out of him, but we'll need to address that soon too I guess.

    Thanks for listening ladies.
