PostSubject: Helloo....Update on us..!!   23rd September 2008, 5:41 am

Well firstly im sorry for not being around much but Ethan take's up so much of my time by the time i get an hours peice im catching up on washing and cleaning!!

As for Ethan he is doing really well, I love him soooo much!! His weight issue's have stableised now and he is now a healthy 8lb 11oz (2oz away from birth weight) He sleeps so well in the night, settling at 9-9.30pm and wakeing between 2-3am for a feed then he is up about 6-7am for his morning feed! We are still breast feeding and im loving it. I have found it very time consumeing thou as he feed's for abour 40mins to an hour! Once he is fed and has a clen bottom he is a very content baby, either sit's in his chair or goes in the swing! he hardly ever cries!

As for me im recouprating well! Im back in my size 14 jeans!!! WOOP!! Iv lost nearly 2 stone having him and am lighter now then i was on my first booking in appiontment! Im still having issues with bleeding but im hoping that will slow down soon! Im coping well so far and feel in control more then i ever did.!
Im still having bad back ache! Sad ...which does hurt!

The girls are loving there new brother, there always asking to hold him and cuddle him and when i have to go get ready ing the morning Katie is very good at looking after him and keeping him amused while i have a quick (and i mean quick lol) shower and dress.! Sophie helps me all the time with changing his bottom, getting me wipes and fetching his dummy when he needs it.

And finally Andrew is magic! Wow how he has changed since having him! He is soo good, even thou i have to feed him in the night he wakes up with us, he's always holding him, kisses him, looks after him. He is a right Daddys boy!! Andrew cook's tea most nights now, helps out with cleaning, washing etc etc .........

Well thats us! Ethan is 2 weeks and 2 days old today and were doing great!

aw I am so happy for you, sounds like he is the perfect lil man! I definatley think boys are alot more content, charle was the same and slept through early. I also think that the more children you have the more you bleed and the more after pains you get. I am pleased to see he is getting big and you are loving to breastfeed, did you breastfeed the girls? breastfeeding is very satisfying and it does really make you bond. keep up the good work!

yes you are right you do bleed more when you breastfeed - but not for as long if you get me. breastfeeding makes the womb contract down quicker, and so can also cause cramps for the first few weeks during breastfeeding, they can be uncomfortable. also the breastfeeding will be helping you lose those pounds!!!
