Last Week’s News.
Last week LL was on her first little holiday in Yorkshire. Our car was full to the brim with all the ‘equipment’ that comes with a young baby.
She was such a good girl while we were away but half way through developed a really bad cold- the second one she has had- she was so snuffly and really couldn’t breathe when she was lying flat and when she was feeding.
She was constantly shuffled around on holiday, being so little, she had to just sit in her car seat or buggy a lot while we were out and about, but she took to it in the good natured and chilled out way she seems to have developed.
LL is now wearing little outfits- I kept to my word and apart from a couple of times in the first fifteen weeks she stayed in gorgeous little baby grows. But now most of the time unless we are at home she is wearing little outfits. And my goodness it makes her look more grown up. My baby is growing up so fast!
She is still the most dribbly baby ever, making her clothes soaking wet within minutes. We have taken to wearing lots of bibs.
As I mentioned above LL came down with a pretty bad cold on holiday. As such we had a few unsettled nights with her, but they still weren’t too bad, with her waking up generally twice instead of once. She is still really easy to settle in the night times, normally having about a five to ten minute feed and going straight back to sleep.
A couple of times on holiday I put her to bed in the evenings quite awake and she settled herself to sleep- I think it is quite important that they can settle themselves, Mads has always done this but I have no idea how we did it, so I just hope I can remember!
She is definitely getting a bit big for her moses basket, often waking herself up by bashing on the sides. I often woke up to find her at an angle in the basket!
LL still doesn’t seem to be much of a feeder, during the day she is much too interested in looking around and smiling up at me, but as long as she seems to be growing, which she is, then I know I am doing a good job.
She is generally feeding for about ten minutes at a time, going every two to three hours in the day and whenever she feels like it at night, but normally once or twice.
On holiday she had to put up with a lot of sporadic feeds in the car as it was hard to feed her on the beach, or in the other little random places we were.
