Exactly Ash. Heís so right. Keep doing what your doing because you are doing great.

We are getting on fab thanks 😊 only problem weíre having is with feeding at night. Heís only getting up once during the night but heís awake for around an hour because he doesnít latch on properly and just messes around a bit. Apart from that we are actually finding it a lot easier than we expected with 2 kids! Iím loving it. Already thinking bout baby number 3 lol. Oh my you are going back already?! 😮 I donít go back to work until June. I couldnít imagine having to leave my baby to go back to work so soon x

We're doing well here. Teddy's still clingy and acting up, but his sleep is improving and he's loosening up a bit. V is mostly in 0-3 month now so I'm going to head to Target in a bit because I spotted some good clearance deals yesterday but didn't have time to browse. I have a lot of Ted's stuff still, but I want more girly basics for when we go out.

Im glad to hear yall are doing well.

Tess~ Yeah it sucks I have to go back so soon. Sad I work for a hospital an our maternity leave is so crappy. Where are you from? We actually started talking about having another already also. I'm just trying to heal from this one still lol. He did a number on me.

MrsK~ I hope Teddy starts to come around for you. Something funny if we have a girl her middle name will be Valentine. It's an old family name for me. Last night we were looking at baby clothes and we saw some cute baby girl ones and my BF said yeah we need a girl too. I said ok put in your order. Lol

I know I definitely want to try for one more but, I'm not sure if want to do it a 3rd time if we did have another boy.

Yeah, we'd have been done at 2 even if Valentine had been a boy, but I'm having so much fun with her. I have fun dressing Teddy too but the girly clothes just kill me.

Hey ladies. I haven’t read everything since I last posted but most of it, glad to hear mummas and bubbas are doing great

I must admit Layla is in her cot all night, and then I’ll put her in my bed last thing when OH gets up for work. She has her last feed at 11pm/midnight and then goes through until 6am earliest, and by that point OH has left so I’ll feed her and then we have cuddles in my bed. I would personally love to do it all night but like someone else said I feel like I’d roll on her or pull the covers over her head or something!

I go back to work at the end of May next year. I have a feeling it’ll be extremely tough! Especially after so long off with baby. I’m hoping to find something else that I can do part time instead of mon-fri

Layla weighed 9lb 7 when she was last weighed which was at 7 weeks! My little tiddler. She’s following her chart nicely though thankfully she is such a smiley baby, rarely cries just smiles.

I had to drag myself to the doctor for the contraceptive shot the other day because I’ll admit I cannot wait to have another! Always said I wouldn’t because of how much it hurt lol - and I wouldn’t have another so soon but at some point it excites me to think of having another baby!

Yeh that really does such Ash! Hope itís nkt too hard on you going back so soon. Iím from Scotland.

Aw bump sounds fab 😊 Zack was 9lbs at 10 days old haha! He was 8lb 13oz at birth to be fair (ouch!). Yeh Iím the exact same. Iím going to go back on my pill after my 6 week check up and I really donít want to lol! I donít want another baby right away so obviously I will go back on contraception but at the same time I feel quite sad about going back on it for some reason. Iím defo not done having babies yet.

Zack is only 2 weeks old but is already going down to sleep at 10pm and going right through until 5/6 before looking fit another feed and then goes straight back down until about 9! My midwife said I need to set an alarm to feed him every 4 hours but my eldest slept right through from 2 weeks old too and my midwife at that time told me Ďif your baby wants to sleep, let her sleep. You donít want to get her into a routine of waking during the night if she doesnít need to!í So thatís what Iím going to go with because she was always a great sleeper and it didnít do her any harm at all. Plus he is putting on weight every time he gets weighed so itís not like he isnít getting what he needs to grow x

I totally agree! I felt quite sad after the jab actually. As much as I know we kinda have to stay safe for a good while, it felt weird to be getting contraception after being pregnant for 9 months then giving birth, everything’s been baby baby baby and then they go and shove a needle in my bum haha!!

That’s so good! What a good boy. Do you know what, the midwife said the exact same to me when they come out on the home visits on day 3(?) 5 and 9 is it? Anyway those visits straight after you leave hospital. All she kept saying was that I need to set alarms every 4 hours at least to feed. But what’s the point in waking them for milk if they don’t want it yet? All it did was wind her up and make her extremely grumpy that she’d been woken so she wasn’t interested in drinking anyway! The funniest thing is 9 out of 10 of the health visitors don’t even have their own babies so I wonder if they’d do half the things they tell us to! Another thing she said was I have to make her wait to the exact 4 hours, even if she’s screaming 10 minutes before. Like I’m going to sit watching a clock for the last 10 mins to pass if my baby is starving crazy peeps!

We ordered Layla a play gym the other day. It has a piano at the end so when she kicks out it plays tunes. I’ve never seen a baby smile so much!!

Holy crap, that's terrible advice! Who starves a newborn??? If they're hungry you feed them!

Yeah no joke that's nuts. Trent Pediatrician told me to feed him every 4 hours unless he is sleeping let him sleep. I feed him anytime he shows me signs he wants to eat. I don't care how long it's been. He's starting to sleep more during the night.

I hate the US and our maternity leave laws suck. I wish I could work from home and be with my baby boy

As for having another baby. I have never been on BC and I don't plan on starting now. I'm not ready to have sex anyway. Trent ripped me a new one lol. But my BF and I figure if I get pregnant again then so be it. When we're done having kids he is going to get clipped.

I wish there was a way we could try and have a girl.
