I'm going to the docs tomorrow for constipation (could that count for not having the strength to push one out? Lol) midwife said if I haven't gone by Friday I need to see doc.

Lennies feeding has been all over the place today from 2pm he was feeding every hour but not for very long. It's only just now I've managed to get a feed for 25 minutes into him.

He also has lots of spots! Ive read it's to do with hormone changes from the birth, and I think my milk, when it spills over his face, hasnt helped either.

Lennies cord came off today! It was a bit infected, so I'm glad it finally off. Couldn't keep it though like I did with dd cos it just looked wet and it smelt

Today is the first day I have actually felt ok! I've done some housework too. Lol. X

We had 1st HV appointment today Grrrr she pissed me off talking to me like i dont know what i am doing on baby number 4 !!!! she told me not asked but told me i would be having a weaning visit when he is 4 months old , I dont think so lady !!!.

As for weight not sure how much he weighs until tomorrow when MW comes for final visit she discharged us other day to HV but said as he was still just under birth weight to come check it tomorrow sure he has gained though .

Glad every ones little bundles are sleeping well Corey does 9pm till 4am every night has since day 2.

Ha my hv was too much too - what is it do you think it's in the job description or something. I was glad I was bf cos I dread to think what shed have been like if I wasn't. She was so bloody militant. Talked at me for half an hour didn't let me say a word about how I was feeling etc i.e blues and stuff and then left. Honestly a waste of a visit tbh.

O was fine and am lucky he is gaining weight. But we've had a few rough nights with him. Last night he pretty much screamed all night in pain. I think he had a bad tummy but it was so awful. So tired tonight that OH had to give him some formula just so I could sleep.

Hey ladies how are you all????

God i am sick of feeling like a walking dummy! Dustin has been feeding every hour today!! SOOOO frustrating. i am not able to re-fil (so to speak lol) and i am not feeling the let down anymore.... i am worried that i am not getting enough to him and that is why he is feeding so often! grrr i hate this breast feeding thing i dont really but god it is frustrating at times! i wish it was a little easier at times

Dustin is growing up so much! Changing every day..... He is now 6 days old and he has already lost his cord Thank god.. there is nothing worse i dont think Yuckies!!!!!!!

How is everyone doing with their sleeping etc?
