"Thanks for sharing your story lena. My little man was born recently via emergency c section. The first night in hospital was a nightmare. Being numb didnt help as i couldnt move from the bed to pick him up or change him. I was at the mercy of the cheerful midwives to look after him. It was an exhausting night. We stayed in hospital for 5 days. I was never so happy to finally get him home..
Best wishes to u and your future x

The toughest thing I'm going to do in a while ... Going back to work!

"Shannel, know how you feel. I am gong back to work next month and I am not looking forward to it. I know that my little girl (who will be 5 months when I return to work) wll be cared for as my mum is looking after her, but that doesn't make it any easier! We should set up on the internet somehow, a support network group for mums who are returning to work!"
Standing and walking feel effortless but are complex skills involving the co-ordination of many muscles. No wonder it takes a while for babies to get mobile ...but look out when they do!

One thing you never want to find ... a lump in your breast

"That was a great read - thanks! I've breastfed all 5 of my children and had the odd blocked duct with each of them. Usually just the once so I'm sure you won't get it again. It is amazing how clever our babies are to help us clear the blockage up aye?"
I know as a first time mum I didn't know what to buy so I thought I would share the things I found most useful... :)

"I also found its good to pack some spare breast pads & little plastic nappy bags in your nappy bag"
Food, food and more food!
To eat or not to eat ...this is the fussy-eater question :D

"you don't need to do anything. It's normal for toddlers to be fussy and have a smaller appetite than when they were babies.
Just offer a range of good food and regular intervals and leave the rest to him. Don't pander to fussiness, and don't make a big deal about what he eats or how much. Your job is to provide the food, his is to decide if he's hungry and eat it if he is.
If you think he's overly tired at dinner time give him his main meal earlier in the day. You can keep it back from the night before and reheat. Then when the rest of the family has dinner give him a snack so he can join in the social scene."
I feel so sentimental right now!
