Has your DD2 been born on 19th then? My DS too! This is my first child.
Apparently you shouldn't express, unless your boobs are so full your DD can't latch on. Then you can express a bit do that your nipples get a bit softer. Otherwise, it will go down as long as you keep feeding on demand.
So to get things started a bit more on this very quiet thread...
I'm an american expat living in London. I've been here for 7 years. I've had both my children here and have had terrible pregnancies but wonderful birth experiences. Both were elective cesarean sections and I couldn't be happier with the results. I am currently trying to figure out if I would like to establish a routine with my DD or if I would like to demand feed.
We just celebrated thanksgiving last week and our children (I love saying 'children') were adorable together. I desperately want more, but I fear that it may be the hormones talking.
I hope everyone else is happy and excited about the upcoming holidays?
I didn't realise these groups existed - could I join you please? My first DD was born 13.11.13, can't believe she's 8 weeks already! Loving being a mum, don't feel like I have a clue what I'm doing most of the time but my girl seems happy and is growing well so can't be doing too badly!
How are you getting on? There doesn't seem to be a lot going on here! Story of my maternity leave to far... Have been to two parent & baby groups, the first one nobody really spoke to me as they all had their little established groups & the second one had only one other mother & child (who were really nice!) When I saw this group I thought it might be a chance to chat with people who have babies of a similar age but there doesn't seem to be anyone around! How are you finding maternity leave? (Assuming you're still off?) I love not being at work & love spending time with my little girl but also missing adult interaction during the day. It'd also be useful to know someone with similar aged children because, I don't know about you but most if the time I feel like I don't know that I'm doing! My girl is growing & seems happy the vast majority of the time so I think I must be doing alright!
Hi Quokka1, Thanks for the reply! How are you and your little dd?
My little man seems to be growing so fast...some of his 0-3 month clothes are already too small! He loves looking at the toys on his baby gym mat and smiles at them...so cute! I am loving maternity leave (most days) too but also miss adult talk and it feels very strange not going to work everyday! I also went to one group but I felt a bit awkward as the other mums all knew each other. Don't worry I feel exactly the same, like I don't really know what I'm doing...I just go with the flow if you know what I mean It would be great to have someone to chat to with a baby the same age as my little fellow!
