The mind is a devious thing as it made me forget all the bad things about caring for a newborn.
1) Constant Feeding
First couple of nights it was feeding every two hours so by the time you’d done feed one and resettled her you barely had time to settle yourself before next feed was due.
Overnight feeding seems to have settled a bit but during the day I feel like she constantly has a bottle in her mouth. Thank his I’m not breastfeeding otherwise I’d permanently be on show!
Oh god I now remember the trouble we had with Little Miss! So far, and fingers crossed, MissMostyn hasn’t been as bad but is suffering.
3) Sleep Deprivation
Well between the feeding and burping it’s pretty much an all night job! It’s relentless! Thankfully hubby has been helping a lot which has taken the edge off!
MissMostyn is still at the stage where she permanently wants to be attached to me. Which means I can hardly put her down. Hence the very tired look of me in the above photo!
Oh we’ve had a few episodes of constipation with MissMostyn. I remember we had them with Little Miss as well. It is just awful to see them in pain and there’s not much you can do to help. I just hope it passes soon!
If truth be told I hate the newborn stage. Does that make me a bad mam?
