Coby is two months old today and has been home for over four weeks now. How time flies!
On his due date, he weighed 3.46kg and was 50cm long. This means he’s really caught up in size, which is fantastic.
He’s started smiling a lot and enjoys having floor and tummy time. He is even big enough to go in a bouncer and has little rolls on his legs, which are super cute.
I am writing this from the Special Care Nursery, while I have a “kangaroo cuddle” with my little boy, Cody, who decided to arrive 8-weeks early.
Where have the last 7 months gone? Miss Sophie is a happy Chubba Bubba and loves munching on anything and everything and the moment. The drool factor is high as we eagerly await her first tooth. Anytime soon would be great!
Jeepers… almost 5 months have passed and I have no idea where the time has gone! Sophie and Anna are just gorgeous to watch. Sophie is constantly smiling and giggling at Anna and Anna is in awe of all of Sophie’s daily habits.
I have often talked about the challenges and triumphs of breastfeeding my two daughters. That said, I have not talked much about the person who encouraged, supported and soothed me along the way – my husband Tim. In many ways, he made it all possible!
I always want to be there for my wife, but, the baby wants breast, breast and more breast. So there is only so much I can do!
A phone call from Lisa came through and I could tell all was not well. Lisa explained that Sophie had not been feeding at the breast very well for the last two days. In addition, she had started to refuse bottles of expressed breast milk too!
Even before giving birth, I knew that the health benefits of breastfeeding were going to make me determined to give it my best shot. However, I quickly learned that breastfeeding, so often described as natural, can seem so unnatural.
