I'll put my comment here then...

BigPig, with dp in hospital for an indefinite stay (thankfully only a week in the end) and only able to visit for 2 hours a day because R got grumpy in the evenings, I did pop him in the sling and get on with it. The nurses thought it was fab!

PP as LO was early, I had worked all day on the day she was born. Being too lazy to finish all my jobs, I had left a thankfully small number of undelegatable jobs for after the weekend. Before we went home from labour ward I had to pop up to my ward to do said jobs. Needless to say, lo I attracted quite the audience of elderly lady patients, who had been chatting about my bump and its contents for some time!

Aw, l bet that was a shock then BP!

Early bed for me. DH is doing the evening shift. I am knackered after DD1's naughtiness all afternoon and early evening. She's normally very good, but today she found all my buttons and pushed them, repeatedly. Can't believe just three weeks ago she was on oxygen in hospital. Kids get better sooo fast. She has also put back on the 2 kg she lost.

I just exploded custard in the microwave shock ! Dammit, I must really not ignore the diet thread...

ValiumQueen Mon 21-Jan-13 20:35:47

izzy very impressed indeed! I do not think you can over feed a bf baby. If he were FF, then he could possibly be seen as a bit piggy. DD2 was vast! She was 10lb 3 born, and remained a fattie, but is now on 50th percentile. They all balance out. I would rather have a chunkier baby than have the pressure of having one that does not gain.

blonder that is an encouraging weight gain. Are you feeling happier about things? I seem to recall he was a bit bunged up following the introduction of a top up. About the bedside cot - it was just a regular cot attached to the bed. Perhaps if I had got a proper one it would have been better for me.

PR sorry, I meant to ask how you were. I empathise with the troublesome older sibling. Mine has been such a rascal today too. Funny thing is, when she drives me to distraction, I think of your DD and how poorly she was and how much you missed her smile

DS just inhaled some milk and screamed the house down once he started breathing again. I did the blowing on his face, which worked. Poor little chap. DH came running into the nursery looking ever so worried.

I say nursery. It resembles the picture of GT s nursery on FB - the before picture - except the cot is assembled.

Definitely growth spurt here, now I can see the wood for the trees.

GTbaby Mon 21-Jan-13 20:59:09

Aww chunky. What a lovely post to end the last thread on thanks

Izzybuzzybuzzybees Mon 21-Jan-13 21:06:23

I am a bit concerned about the weight but I've been told many times like you say vq you can't overfeed a BF baby although I sometimes wonder! He doesn't seem to feed excessively so I guess its ok. HV no concerns either. The only problem is growing out of clothes so bloody quickly!!!

BigPigLittlePig Mon 21-Jan-13 21:08:27

LO has finally nodded off after being awake for 4 hours. I was looking for these sleep cues I keep reading about, and even got as far as her dozing off in her bouncer until the hoover handle bit fell over onto the wooden floor angry. That was that. Cue much hysterical overtired screaming.

daisy shock is one word for it! vq sadly won't get the time back but it's taught me a bloody good lesson to not be a lazy sod
