Don't worry ladies, we will be here with you til the end! We have all come this far together we won't leave you now!!
Bit of an update from me. Today Remy is 8 days old! C section isn't causing any trouble and I haven't taken any pain meds at all today and feel fine. We left hospital on Monday and on Tuesday we were out at Westfield doing some errands and buying stuff for the little ones. Mum drove and we were only out for a couple of hours but it felt good to get back to reality! Wednesday it was raining so back to Westfield we went so DS could go crazy on the indoor play equipment! Both days we took Remy in her capsule and put it on the pram wheels and she just slept the whole time we were out (again, prob 2 hours max).
Remy is a really good sleeper. She is doing generally one 5 hour stint between feeds overnight and 3-4 hours the rest if the time. A feed/change/settle usually takes about an hour. My milk has come in with gusto and the poor little thing sometimes chokes on it cause it pours out without her having to suck! I think also I am much more relaxed this time around and she is a much easier baby to DS so makes it feel better all round. Only down side is being number two I don't have all that adrenaline you first timers have so am struggling with the lack of sleep. I have had arvo naps every day so far (which is what I should be doing now!!).
I think Jay asked about favourite items and I have to second the cloth nappies, I use them for lots of things every day. I also have fleece wraps from target which are awesome in this colder weather. Again, use them everyday as they are also good to put over the capsule as they keep the wind off. The other night Remy went through 3 jumpsuits and singlets in just one feed so I would also make sure you have plenty if those to hand (I bought more clothes as she is 00000 and I only had 4 outfits!). Other than that, another emergency purchase was a bath thermometer - forgot we would need one!
Hope you are all well and happy.... Snooze time for me! Zzzzzzz
