Thanks - this is the tricky thing, one mw will say one thing then another will say something totally different! I have a number for a bfeeding specialist somewhere, will give her a ring today...

It doesn't help when you are getting told conflicting things, but if I were you I certainly wouldn't be restricting her time on the breast.

We've been told we can go home this evening

Have to bring her back twice tomorrow to finish the antibiotics course but they are switching her to twice a day rather than 3x so it'll be a lot more manageable. So happy

Glad you get to go home soon Maud. Can you not get someone to come out the the house to give the antibiotics? We ended up on a once a day antibiotic and mon-fri we had a nurse come to the house but sat and sun we went to the hospital? Might be worth asking if it is a possibility rather than having to go in twice a day. We didn't go onto the once a day antibiotic until he had been on them for 2 weeks though. How much longer will she have to be on antibiotics for? xx

She only has to have two doses tomorrow thankfully. She's been on them 6am, 2pm, 10pm but they're switching to 6am/6pm so much more manageable (although will still be an early start in the morning). We live in the next county so I doubt they could arrange a home visit. We have a community hospital literally around the corner from us but they have hardly any services unfortunately. I expect it would be different if she was staying on them longer term.

Oh that's good then, least you know it's not long term and it's just two doses. Plus a bonus you get to go home as staying in hospital is horrible xx

Hi everyone, Skye's now 8 days old and thriving! She got weighed on Friday and had gained 5oz already and has already got the nickname Skye Pie from me and her dad. Unfortunately I'm not doing so well, I have either a UTI or a urine infection and now on antibiotics and c section scar is looking inflamed this morning and I'm finding all my clothes are rubbing off it. Also really struggling to sleep during the day and my house is a riot within 5 mins of me tidying it. Finding it all a huge adjustment if I'm honest, but I wouldn't change it for the world

Hi all, so pleased to see this thread running as have been thinking about you all. Sorry to hear your lo has been ill Maud, hope all is ok.

Joe is 7and a half weeks old now, at his 6week check he was 12lb 5oz so he's probably over 13 by now, gaining weight on the 91st centile so bf has been going really well. Have started expressing some for oh to give him a bottle so he can have some close time with him.

We went on holiday last week to the forest of dean with our 5yo and Joe and it was great, lots of walks in the forest and climbing up castle walls - really appreciated the stretchy wrap I had to carry Joe in. Was lovely to get away and be just us because MIL is doing my head in. Coming round unannounced and stopping for ages at really awkward times e.g. tea and bedtime. Its not even to help out because she doesn't like us having a bedtime routine - children should go to bed when they're ready in her view - so she insists on playing with them when we're trying to get them both to calm down. Oh won't say anything as his dad passed away a couple of years ago and she's lonely - which I do understand, but its just not helpful. Don't know what to do because I am going to lose my rag with her at some point and don't want to.

I would just say I'm sorry but they are going to bed, otherwise they will be ratty in the morning and your the ones who have to deal with it. Our baby is 3 weeks and my dad tries to wake her when we see them. Iv told him if he tries to wake her we will go home as i will need to seetle her. Just be firm but polite x

Morning ladies.
Stanley is now just over 10 weeks old and weighed in at 9 14 last week, still teeny, he's such a long skinny baby
I discovered the baby swing yesterday at my friends, so I didn't hang about and brought one straight away, was an amazing bit of kit

I guess I belong here here now baby Charlie was born on the 26th June at 2.40 am via emergency csection after a 48 hour induction (40 hours in established labour) weighing 7lbs 2oz. He's beautiful and worth every second. He developed jaundice so we had some extra time in for treatment he's still very sleepy so topping up with ebm which is very hard work but I'm sure he'll wake up soon xx

I've lost track and can't keep up with everyone!

Are you home now Maud? How's little one doing?

Yorklass how's the feeding going?

Lottie your little girl is so sweet - I love her headband! I've got one of M in a daisy headband and it's so cute!
How you feeling now you're on antibiotics?

Bobkat our little ones are similar weight - M was 12lb 5oz at 7 weeks ebf and on 91st centile.
I've started expressing a supply but she won't take a bottle yet so only me.

Hi Eaw - can't believe you have a 10 week old - he'll be 3 months soon!!!

Welcome Elfs mummy and Charlie! How's his Jaundice and topping up going?

Love87 I love the name! And she's beautiful!
I managed to catch a smile on camera at 10 days (I promise it wasn't windy smiles)!

My little diva is an active one! She's already nearly rolled off the bed and during tummy time rolled nearly onto her back but got her arm trapped and screamed!
I can't take my eyes off her already!
Life's very busy but it's lovely meeting up with friends and spending time with my babies.

I bit the bullet and I'm back at slimming world - first weigh in Saturday and went back to Zumba tonight which was a killer especially for my boobs! I stupidly wore washable breast pads which kept trying to escape! Next time I'll get the ones you stick to your bra!

A few more pics -



This was 10 day old smiles!



7 week smiles!



Daisy headband!


Tummy time! Before it ended in screams lol

Thanks MrsT. We are home and Kara is back to normal, other than her skin slowly peeling off her. We still don't really know what caused it, although the skin infection seems most likely. They were still running some tests when they discharged but said they might not get a conclusive answer. Have to wait and see what they say when they write to us.

I'm really wanting to start exercise but not sure if two weeks is too early even for gentle stuff (yoga, very low impact aerobics or dancing)? The weather hasn't been very walking friendly lately! I'm trying to watch what I eat a bit as have 1.5 stone of baby weight to lose, but it's hard to get out of the gluttony habits I developed while pregnant. Am sat stuffing half a box of Milk Tray atm, whoops.

I'm really hoping we get some summer weather soon. We've bought a bunch of summer rompers, expecting to be living in the garden or in parks and having picnics.

I wasn't too worried about losing baby weight, as it came off really quickly last time. But I am struggling to find clothes to fit each morning. My maternity trousers are too baggy and just fall down. My normal trousers are far too small. Have just about managed to cram into an old pair of size 14 jeans this morning but they are tight and uncomfortable and I have a massive muffin top. .I was in size 12 matermity wear. I'm thinking I am actually going to have to go shopping for size 16!! Not feeling very good about myself right now
