I never knew having a second baby would be so hard. In fact it’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever attempted in my life. Being up by night then not having the chance by day to nap like first time around is a struggle. Running around after a toddler who has endless energy is hard.
I always thought I would be able to cope, but I haven’t. This is extremely hard for me to admit, but I’ve needed help. I’m lucky that my mother in law just lives across the road and is always on hand to take baby girl outside for a walk or just to play in the garden so I can have some rest bite. Even if it’s just to watch Grey’s Anatomy!
Here we are at baby dottie’s 1 month update. It’s hard to believe she’s been with us over a month now, yes I’m a little late with this update! It feels like she’s always been with us.
Baby dottie only lost 5% of her birth weight in those first few days. Unlike baby girl who lost over 10%. I put this down to myself being more experienced with breastfeeding this time around plus my milk came in quicker. We never got her red book until she was nearly 2 weeks old, bloody health visitors!
When the health visitor came around to do her checks she was such a busy body. Baby girl got on her nerves a bit as she wouldn’t stay quiet while she did baby dottie’s hearing test! What do you expect from a 2 year old? View Post
