congratulations to all new mummy’s, I can honestly say I don’t know I have him, he is so laid back, very rarely cries, just totally chilled all the time.
these November babies have been quite good weights too.
This was a middle of the night feed photo hence my face looking like that 🤣
Im now full formula feeding and he is taking 4oz every 4 hours. Winding him is taking a good 45 minutes at the moment so I will get him some infacol just to help them bubbles come together so it’s easier for him to get up.
apart from that he is a dream 😍
@Larat84 thanks for coming to the new thread! She looks happy on the mat - are you getting any sleep?
we’re on full formula now too and do roughly 4oz every 4 hours. I also wind for about 45 mins and have been giving infacol the past couple of days. She does have a period of unsettled time between 9pm and 1am where she just wont go back down after her last feed of the day. Was thinking maybe its colic although she doesnt scream but does thrash her legs about and goes red in the face. So ive started with the dr browns bottles and feed her upright 🤷🏻♀️
We’re not getting much sleep when she wakes in the night we’re feeding her she has 1-2oz then falls asleep we wind her then change her bum which wakes her up for the rest of bottle then wind again which takes quite a while an she does fall asleep then when we put her down she’s wide awake an most nights stays that way till her next feed, any one any tips? X
also, has anyone else been told to wake their baby to feed so they don’t go over 3 hours (4 max)? To me this seems awful and like it’s introducing problems. Surely they’ll wake when they’re hungry?
I’m not breast feeding but got told to wake baby to feed. I didn’t have a much trouble in the day feeding but the night was a nightmare and we were waking her to feed, that unsettled her and then she was staying awake for ages. Since about two weeks (after an awful night) I said I’m not waking her again at night and she’s been fine since! If I had another baby I wouldn’t wake them at night. We do one night feed now at 3-4 which takes about 45mins to an hour.
do what’s right for u! If baby is putting on weight I wouldn’t worry. I got told off by the midwife and health visitor for not feeding ever three hours so just lie now (I sound terrible but not all babies are the same!) she’s only 7lbs 6oz now at four week (that’s gone so fast!).
She has bad dry skin mainly on hands and feet I think partly because she was post term tyen she had to have phototherapy has she had jaundice, when we was discharged the doctor said to rub oil on when we change her then today the midwife said not to put anything on as it may irritate her skin so know I’m not sure what to do? Any advice? X
We came home on Tuesday afternoon and have been a permanent fog ever since. I feel so much brighter than I did when I had my daughter, so much more with it. With the exception of these damn afterbirth pains. I'm living with the stitches and the general muscle aches pushing nearly 9lb of baby out causes...but the cramps are really finishing me off this afternoon 🤕
Other than that, Evan is feeding well and is almost up to 3oz every 3-4 hours. Hubby kissed his nose for this face 😆
shr also said use olive oil or coconut oil, just natural oils
