    I came across this thread at 11:30pm last night while sitting on the couch with Dd (2) after >12 attempts to resettle her.

    I don't think I'll do anything much different in the newborn stages. I was so relaxed and carefree which I felt made it a very rewarding experience. We followed all the recommendations of a routine, no feeding or rocking to sleep etc and we still have a rubbish sleeper who will only bed share.......we WILL be taking a different approach this time. I actually made enquires today about a sleep consultation at QClass in Bne because I don't know how I am going to manage with a toddler that wont sleep, a baby and a Dh that works nights. What the heck was I thinking ;-)

    I wouldn't change much second time round.. Except maybe not persisting with breastfeeding for 4 days in hospital with milk that did not arrive till day 6 after elective c section. She was starving by day 3. I again would have an elective c section.. Bottle feed right from the start.. Express a little colostrum at the start. My bub was sleeping from 7pm to 6pm from about 3 months so would repeat the quite strict routine and training bub to self settle right from week one by not rocking or feeding to sleep.

    Lactogenesis II is the stage of milk production after the colostrum. Your body begins to produce the next milk after the birth of the placenta and can take up to 3 days. After C Sections this can be delayed for up to 72 hours longer than vaginal births.
    Can you tell what class I'm up to in my degree??

    I had a growth scan at 32 weeks and DD was in the 25th percentile. Once maternity leave kicked in and I started veging out, she grew and was born at 40+5 weighing 8lb 2oz so definitely not small
