4th Trimester catch up
How are we all doing?
Millicent is 4 weeks old tomorrow which has flown by, but at the same time it seems like she's been here for longer. She's pretty easy so far, feeding has been very easy and she's thriving putting on over 2lb in her first 3 weeks. It would have been nice to have a smaller baby for a bit longer though . She tends to cluster feed a bit in the morning and evening and goes a good 3 hours during the day and over night. Being a second baby life revolves around following her big brother round to all of his groups and playdates, she's spending a lot of time in the Connecta as a result!
I'm loving having a newborn again, helped by her being such as easy baby really.
Dealing with 2 of them can be a bit of a challenge, I swear they only cry at the same time as each other! but I think I'm doing ok, helped by Alex being an absolute gem for the last week. A few hairy moments where I've had to drag Alex across a mirrored hall at dance club to put him in time out whilst feeding M and praying she stays on the boob and doesn't expose me to the room (Did I mention it was mirrored!).
My recovery has been so easy this time. Loch is has pretty much finished, just been v.light for over a week now. Think my stitches have all healed but I'm not about to go prodding or looking!
I've no idea how to add a photo from my phone so will do so from laptop later.
