operation mummy milk commences…….. fenugreek was started this morning (my mummy stinks ) and milk thistle was purchased… I had three breast feeds today, each before my formula and each lasted a little longer than the one before…..my feed last night came out so fast I thought I was going to choke…so i pulled off and stretched my Mummy’s nipple just to let her know (ouch!)
My Mummy and I watched a programme tonight called ‘Is Breast Best?’ about the debate between breast milk and formula milk…it was okay, a little disappointing to see only the camps for and against breast feeding…and not anyone who had to give up medically or is struggling to do both. But it didn’t make my mummy cry, which is a bloody miracle at the minute!
My Grandad is a bit brighter today too…he sat in a chair for 5 minutes, he couldn’t stay there too long as his tummy was hurting but 5 minutes is an improvement right?
Mummy is planning to go and visit Grandad again in a couple of weeks, if he is at home she says she might take me with her so he can meet me, but if he is still in hospital she says it is best if I stay with Daddy…although that will throw the expressing/feeding routine up in the air if she is away for 2 days. I don’t really think she knows what to do for the best!
There is talk of my Mummy and Daddy putting me upstairs earlier at night time…..apparently I slept for 7 hours from 2am till 9am last night…the plan (I think) is to feed me at 10/11pm then put me down so that I become Mummy’s human alarm clock when the children go back to school. I’m sure they think this is going to be easy….but we will see…how dare they presume that I am going to sleep through ?? hahahahahahahahahahahaha…..you would think that by Baby number 7 (that’s me!) they would learn not to assume anything!
