6 weeks!



keo will be 6 weeks old this thursday and is growing very fast! he has turned into a VERY hungry baby and feeds so much. when he cries for milk, nothing will make him calm (but my boobies!) he went through a growth spurt the other week and he was feeding every 30 mins which was tough! he now has proper chubby baby cheeks and arms and legs which are so adorable and i could just keep stroking them forever.

we are slowly getting into a routine and he is feeding every 2 to 4 hours now which is giving me some time to sleep too.... we started to take him out in a sling to the park/local shops and he loves being in it and sleeps very well. being outside also takes my mind off the daily feeding routine and keeps me sane so i'd better keep it up. 

i am still sore from the daily feeding (my nipples that is.) and went to see a breastfeeding lady at a local children centre the other day to get some help. she says the latching is perfect (thanks to all the youtube clips/website that i desperately watched million times) but his mouth is still small and he can't open his mouth wide enough which is apparently the reason why.  apparently it could take 3 months for the pain to go away.... that's another 2 months! umm...

P.S. THANK YOU SO MUCH for those who sent us cards/presents! keo is a very lucky boy! we can't thank you enough for your generosity!

今週の木曜日できおが産まれてから6週間目になります。長かったようで早かったような毎日バタバタの6週間でした。2770gと小さいカラダで産まれてきたものビックリするくらいきおの食欲は底なし、おっぱい大好きでどんどん成長しています。お腹がすくとすごい勢いで泣きはじめ、おっぱいをあげる以外何をしても泣き止まない!ちょうど3週目に一週間ほど、いわいる「成長期」をむかえてその時の食欲はさらにびっくり倍増。一時は30分おきに授乳していました。その週をすぎてからは授乳の間隔も2−4時間ほどになり、私も寝れる時間が増えすこし楽に。

でもあいかわらずおっぱいは痛いままで、先日近所にあるチルドレンセンター(国が経営しているママと子供達のための施設でいろんなクラスがあったり子供達があそべる施設)の母乳エキスパートのお姉さんに話をしにいったところ、吸い方は問題ないけれど、どうやらきおの口が小さいのが原因のようで、3ヶ月ぐらいすればいたくなくなってくるでしょう、とのこと。あと2ヶ月も痛いのかとおもうとちょっと気が重い....。涙 でもおっぱい大好きのきおのためになんとか頑張らなければっと日々の授乳にのぞんでおります。
