Hi, I’m Leah, a mum to two little babes, Eva (3) and a brand-new little bub August (4 weeks!)
We live in the inner west of Sydney. My pregnancies with Eva and August were so different. With Eva, I was pretty well most of the time (once I got through the first trimester). But, with August I was sick for the first 4-5 months! I also got to nearly 42 weeks with both babies.
Time sure flies when you’re a mother to a newborn. I can’t believe my baby is already two months old. It’s surreal to watch him grow every day and begin new movements such as cooing, babbling and simply moving his arms and legs. I’ve started to log Jordan’s actions and behaviours in a diary, which is great for following the growing stages of life.
Firstly, let me share a little about my breastfeeding journey the first time around with Christie. As a first-time mum, I struggled the first two weeks with breastfeeding and latching done correctly so that it would be comfortable for both of us.
Throughout my pregnancy, we have been speaking to our first born, Christie, about what’s happening. We explained how my tummy will be growing and how she will soon have a baby brother. We explained to her the process of when it’s time to have the baby, what’s going to happen, what her role will be and where she will be when it all happens.
