Just when you think you’re on a roll, everything changes again!
Overall Ella’s sleep from birth has been pretty good, at first we couldn’t believe our luck with how well she slept, sleeping through apart from feeds quite young! I remember the health visitor saying “that will all change!” Not well done or anything which annoyed us at the time but my god has it!
The weaning process, what a process this is!
What kind of food do you start your baby with? What milk do you give them? How much milk do you give them? How much food should they get? Is food before one really just for fun? Will they have an allergy?
I was speaking to a friend recently who was saying she really feels there are so many mums out there who sugar coat motherhood and are never completely honest about their mummy journey.
Teething, that subject I think all mums must discuss at some point during motherhood. It’s a bit like when you’re pregnant and you don’t know how your body will react, the same goes for your little one and their toothy pegs.
I’d planned to write something about sleep and separation anxiety in the coming weeks, especially as lockdown for some means we’re spending more time with our babies than ever, but since it’s hit our household over the last week I thought what better time to discuss it?
On the 17th July nine days before our planned c-section date, Jack and I were in bed watching Love Island, don’t laugh it’s our favourite haha. I felt a pop around my midriff and then what I can only describe as a tingly wave come over me.
