May Baby Mayhem!

Hello fellow May mums. Let's follow on from our lovely ante-natal threads, here's the first of the post-natal ones. Join us as we work out how to handle nappies, feeding, colic, crying and all things newborn, or just to celebrate the joys of a new baby!

Mikocat Tue 15-May-12 12:18:58

Hello Bodeccia,

When was your baby born? Mine (DD) was born 27th April but was actually due 1st May, so I was on the May thread.

Love her to bits, But damn it's hard work!

Bodeccia Tue 15-May-12 12:30:37

Hi Miko, I haven't actually given birth yet, I'm going to be induced on Thursday if nothing happens today/tomorrow. I'm super fed up of waiting now...

Marking my place too, the list is looking good!

bonbonpixie Thu 17-May-12 14:40:11

Definitely hard but worthwhile work! Little Cameron is so beautiful, I love her to bits but I was not prepared for just how hard breast feeding actually is!! During pregnancy I was lamenting on about how I'd do it for at least 9 months now I'm just happy to get through the day!
Very very steep learning curve!

katykuns Thu 17-May-12 19:48:13

Hello smile I have been a bit inactive recently... as had my daughter on the 11th!
Her name is Emily Edith Harriet smile She was born at 8.23 and weighed at 8 pounds 10 ounces.
Bonbonpixie - Finding the breast feeding absolutely awful tbh, but my only positive bit of advice is to purchase an electric breast pump - seriously reduced the discomfort of my boobs! Emily would spend all day breast feeding if she could, and the only position I appear to have mastered (use that word loosely) is lying on the bed on my side.
So very tired yawn

Have updated the list!

Electric pump is a godsend! I take one feed off at night, as I've found that when she wakes up at 3am starving I can sometimes be so sore and engorged that she won't latch on and I have to use the pump to take a little off just to get her on the nipple! One bottle feed with expressed milk doesn't seem to make much difference as she feeds normally during the day.
Does anyone know how long it takes after your milk supply comes for everything to settle down and feel comfortable?

PreciousPuddleduck Fri 18-May-12 11:24:43

Hello,
Nice to join the new thread. Our DD was born on the 9th smile
Initially wanted to sleep all day and be awake all night hut settling down a bit now. It's my first child & I was not prepared for how emotional I would feel in the first few days. I just want her to stay this tiny & previous forever. Have got past the crying stage now and just keep taking lots of photos!! Nice to be able to have some (wine) after we registered her yesterday smile

katykuns Fri 18-May-12 12:03:56

Hehe also taking loads of photos! I haven't been massively emotional in crying.. but I am utterly gooey over her and literally could sit and stare at her all day. She is my second, and I think I am finding it so much easier in many ways, as I just felt so scared all the time with my first that I was doing a bad job (she hasn't turned out too bad :P)..
I think its also because my ex (DD1's father) was absolutely no help! and generally just a complete ass! My partner now is wonderful with her and has been a real support with the breastfeeding (the only cause of my upset-ness!). We are taking turns doing the nights as well, and the one that gets a decent night's sleep does the school run with DD1... its turning out to be a pretty good system smile This is until I go back to work (partner will be a SAHD) in August.

How did everyone's delivery go? I love to hear the birth stories ^^

mythical Fri 18-May-12 13:07:27

Hi everyone! I have a birth story should I post it here?

tostaky Fri 18-May-12 13:22:05

Yes yes yes!!! grin

pickledpeppers Fri 18-May-12 19:08:23

Can I join please? First baby son born on 14.05.2012 at 19.35 weighing 6lb 14oz. Just feeling overwhelmed at how gorgeous he is. Been home 2 nights after 2 nights in hosp and just love watching him sleep, silly really as I should be sleeping then too.
Found bf a stubble as he was getting frustrated with it so now I'm happily using electric pump to express milk and top up with formula, it's been much better for all of us.
Had an emcs so finding the recovery tough and there have been lots of tears so far!

pickledpeppers Fri 18-May-12 19:09:00

Bf a struggle not stubble!

ballroompink Fri 18-May-12 19:38:51

Another one here feeling the BF challenge! I got so frustrated on my first night with him as he was refusing to latch on but wouldn't sleep and I had no idea how to sort it out. Luckily one of the midwives was really helpful and I also spoke to the BF counsellor before I went home. Still have seriously sore nipples though and hoping they get a bit better soon!

goodname Fri 18-May-12 20:21:05

Hi all I had my second baby boy on 21 april (2 weeks early) but just wanted to say last time round I found bf quite a struggle to start with, couldnt get him latched on for 2 days, but it got much much easier after a couple of weeks and this time round it has been so easy i dont even have sore nipples so its worth persevering with. Actually I struggled to stop bf and kept going til 18 months in the end!
Also I used an electric pump last time but I lost it this time round and have a manual avent one and its actually much easier not having to faff round looking for a plug socket and theres no noise to wake your baby up!

tostaky Sat 19-May-12 08:06:34

Just wanted to say, lasinoh cream is really really a lifesaver when it comes to sore nipples wink
It wasn't until my nipples were bleeding than the breast feeding councillor mention that cream to me when I had DC1!!!

Lovely to hear about how you are all getting on with your baby! Hopefully I should be able to join you soon! grin

cupcakefairy Sat 19-May-12 08:23:00

Agreed tostaky it is an absolute must, applied after every feed. Also if you're having problems call your mw & ask for a maternity care assistant to come out & supervise feeds, it really does help to have the extra support there & builds your confidence.
bonbon it took a good 4 weeks for ds & I to settle into feedig properly..for my supply to regulate, nipples to not be as sore & generally just getting into a routine.. after that it was plain sailing to 11 months when I stopped feeding so stick with it! smile

Hello

(Posted some of this in ante natal but thought I'd pop it in here too).

As you can see from the list I had a baby boy on the 14th May, Finlay, 5lb 14oz.

It is hard I know! For me the lack of sleep, just feeling zombie like.

Feeding - Going well, not leaking as much as I did with the other two. Not sure if it is still to come but so far just a small amount. Breasts not so engorged but still v full and latch on right side v sore at first. Can't seem to improve it much, wish I could!

So far Finlay is a good and calm little thing so I'm hoping he stays that way. Haven't really noticed how often he wakes as I tend to avoid looking at the clock! Think it is the usual every two or three hours though. Generally exhausted but dh has been great so managing fine. Trying to bolster myself mentally for dh returning to work in a week a bit.

How are those with the totey babies doing with clothes?? Nothing fits Finlay except 'tiny baby' vests I was given and thought would be too small! Oh and one sleepsuit. Have bought a few smaller bits (all ds's 0-3 is hanging off him) and they are also too big! I know that soon enough he will fit them of course, already he has gained weight, now 6lbs.

Oh must mention MIL presents; box of maltesers, one old baby vest and a (used!) tub of sudacrem! She is terrible. She also brought an incredibly old rusty scooter for ds1 and said it was for his birthday (next month)! Honestly I like second hand but really perhaps one wee new thing for a new baby...? And an opened tub of sudacrem?? Ugh. On the other hand my mum brought a lovely box of goodies from local wholefood supermarket (fudge, bubble bath, pate, cheese, sweeties, etc), suits from John Lewis and some champagne. They are soooo different.

How are everyone else's visitors? We've had most of the main folk expected. Not dh's dad as they live up north (plus he is rubbish anyway) and dh's brother hasn't organised to come down and dh pretty angry about it. He texted him midweek and brother said oh v busy with work but will come soon, haven't heard since. And as my sister said 'we're all busy with work'. Oh well!
