day three...

I am a bit of a weepy mess today, I was expecting it though so its possibly better than it could have been. I managed to get out for a wee while today though which was nice, just to ezibuy and farmers with my sister and bubs, was nice to be out of the house for a while.

I am currently sitting at home alone.... the first time I have been by myself for days and its really nice in some ways, Rebecca and Ben have gone to print photos etc and the kids are all sleeping, I should probably have gone to bed too but I want to have a shower before bed and I wont be able to hear N if she wakes so I will just wait for a while before I have one.

N is awesome, shes breastfeeding beautifully, my milk has come in so we don't have to deal with yucky meconium nappies anymore either which is great, we had Paula visit today and shes happy with how the both of us are doing. She took the clamp off N's cord stump and did the heal prick test, the girls weren't very impressed with that part of things today. N is sleeping ok, but its hard to get used to being up at strange hours to feed her. I am managing to get some extra sleep in the daytime though which is helping.

Mr O is very good with N, hes a wee bit rough at times but hes only 2 so I dont expect very much from him, he gives her kisses though and calls her baby. The big girls are great with her, they love giving her cuddles and talking to her.

I can hear N snuffling so had better get organised for the next feed. D

The day three blues - very common, aren't they. You're entitled to a wee weep! I'm so glad to hear that the little one is feeding well; that helps enormously. And of course you are a very experienced mother now, so while that won't take away the tiredness and the weepiness and the hard work, at least you know how to manage a little baby.

I'm outrageously impressed that you managed to go out for an hour or two today. I don't think I ever even made it out of the hospital before day four.

it was so nice to get out, am wondering how going anywhere with all of them will work.

she slept for 4 hrs then 3 hrs from 12 last night so pretty happy with that, her feeding well does make it easier esp seeing she hasnt cracked my nipples or anything nasty.
