I'm in the May mummies club although was due in April!

My yellow bump turned out to be a little girl arriving 6 days late at home on 4/5/16.

She's now 6 weeks and we're currently on holiday in Turkey! Been here nearly 2 weeks and heading home Monday.
It's been fairly easy as she's breastfed so easy to feed on demand. She's had a few meltdowns but I guess that's newborns for you!

Your boys are gorgeous Kanga!
I'll upload some pics when back in England!

Maud Jun 18th, 2016 11:45 AM

Thanks for starting a thread kanga. Love having people to chat with x

Kara was born on her due date of 16 June so is 2 days old. I was in hospital for 3 days after my first so it's all totally different this time as we were in and out same day and enjoying lots of visitors at home.

Breastfeeding is going well, although her latch isn't quite right yet so having to pay close attention to avoid damage (my first did serious damage due to a tongue tie and don't want a repeat, although thankfully Kara's tongue is fine). Now sleep is another thing altogether. I got 2 hours the night I went into labour, 4 hours the first night and about 2 broken hours last night. Not quite sure how I'm still functioning!!

Two year old Isabelle is being a superstar so far. A little clingy (refused to go to shops with Daddy earlier even though she usually loves going) and we haven't got her close enough to get a sisters photo yet, but she's been very well behaved so far. I'm sure that won't last!

Oh wow mrst, I can't imagine being on holiday with a newborn but like you say with breastfeeding it is so easy and alot less faff. We had our 1st around the same time right? Harry was 6th July.

Maud it is amazing how you survive on so little sleep in the 1st few days. I bet it has been lovely being out of hospital so early. We were in quite a while as I had Alfie at 7:08pm and although they said I could go home I went into shock about an hour after he was born so felt safer staying in, although thinking back I probably would have been fine coming home. When staying overnight it takes ALL day to then be discharged so didn't go home til 4pm I think.

My older two are being fab with Alfie and shower he with kisses and like giving him cuddles. It's the fighting between themselves that has escalated as they know I can't do much if sat feeding Alfie. I feel as though I am constantly yelling them off for hitting each other or throwing things so hoping that calms down soon xx

Audra - 05/05/16 :-) born 6.7lbs, now 8lbs after some struggle with weight gain and feeding. Turning more ginger by the day lol, and looking more and more like her daddy.

6+2 weeks today. Cannot believe I would have just turned 42 weeks pregnant!

kanga86 Jun 18th, 2016 14:23 PM

Aww Audra is just beautiful Kitty. Love how you match in the last picture :). Glad she is growing well now. Alfie was 8lb 1oz at 5 weeks a few days ago and following the 2nd centile, so a little dink too xx

MrsT2011 Jun 18th, 2016 14:35 PM

Yes Kanga Billy was born on the 14th July so similar age gap.
He loves being a big brother and other than a bit of attention seeking his behaviour has been great and he adores his little sister.

I'm currently at a water park in 42 degree heat! So in the shade feeding my little lady and enjoying free wifi lol

babyslog Jun 18th, 2016 16:29 PM

Hi all... I'm new here.
Hope everyone & their little ones are well.

Oscar is one week old today-born 11/6/16 at 8lb 10ozs.
Water birth with gas & air.

Breastfeeding going alot better than it did with my daughter 7 years ago.... I think this time I was mentally prepared that it takes perseverance...for something so natural it amazes me how challenging it is!! But it feels good this time, Oscar was weighed at 5 days & had only lost 4% 5ozs... very pleased with that. 😊

Looking forward to getting to know you all x

Nancy Fay was born on 26th May 5 days after her due date weighing 6lb 4oz. She is now 3 weeks 2 days and weighs 7lb. After having my labour started with a pessary it was discovered that she was coming face first and so I ended up having an emergency cesarean.

Bf for 9 days but now ff. Nancy was an IVF baby so extra special to us!

Hey Nat, so good to see you here. I can't believe I have 3 boys now and I'm getting on ok. It is tough but Alfie is fitting in nicely. It's the older two fighting and not listening that give me headaches and stress me out lol but hoping it's just a phase. Harry starts school in Sept, which is just crazy! When did our babies grow up so much!

Hope James and Bee are doing good? xx

kanga86 Jun 18th, 2016 22:40 PM

Hey babyslog, Charlie is doing great with his weight, I do love squishy babies and can't wait for Alfie to podge up a bit as he is still has skinny chicken legs haha

Welcome daisy, Oscar is gorgeous. It is mental how much of a struggle breastfeeding actually is when it should be so natural. Perseverance is key and it really does get so much easier. Sounds like Oscar is feeding well.

Hello poispinner, Nancy is beautiful and is very special. It's always lovely to hear about ivf success babies. My 1st Harry tried to come face first too and I had a emcs, hope you are recovering well xx

Hi all :-)

Jack is 4 weeks old today, born on 21/05/16 weighing 8lb14oz. He's now 11lb2oz!! He also smiled for the first time yesterday and has been practising more today. He's very chilled during the day and then turns into a stroppy man at bedtime, but he's settled quite quickly tonight so I can't complain too much!!
