Well last night was fun, not.
Bubs (and dad) had a long night together – he didn’t settle very well.
We’ve got him on the correct feed for his weight (80ml) but he always seems to want more- at least he did last night.
No burps either so I was quite frustrated and worried that I was doing something wrong.
Lots of crying, rocking and walking in circles for the first 3 hours.
It’s amazing the different positions that you can try to rock and swing a new born from just to see if you hit the sweet spot where his eyes slowly slide shut.
Feed at 2.30am which was 3 hours after his last one (we’re aiming for a 4 hours feeding schedule) was gulped down. Again after 10 mins of different positions trying to pat him for burps -nothing.
More rocking and walking and finally he drifts off to sleep. Thankfully this time he sleeps all the way through to 8am and I managed to get a few cap-naps in between gurgles and sighs.
Hope he’s better tonight.
Mum and grandma gave him a bath today. We had bought a bath from Big W but they tried him in the sink today.
That didn’t go down well- I think the metal of the sink was too cold against his skin. Man what a racket!! Back to the plastic baby bath next time.
It’s sunny out today so we have him in the buggy next to the patio door. Sleeping just now – next feed at 4pm.
Some of the items that I bought on-line arrived yesterday and I gave then to my wife as a present.
Two baby bibs – one with ninjas on it and one with computer keyboard keys – yeah I’m a geek 🙂
Grandma also gave us a hand-made washcloth and teddy.
And one of my best friends knitted a couple of little hats and some matching booties. I have awesome friends.
