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!


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。

  1. I stopped by after someone shared your birdie screen printing post with me (pinned now, thank you) and saw the bub. I just had to come have a nosey. He is adorable. I am going all mushy this end. My one is 6 months now. My first boy after 3 girls. We weren't trying specifically for a boy (everyone thinks we were) Just you wait till Keo is charging around ina little walker, running over your toes. They grow so, so fast. My eldest is 16 (Eek!) and it feels like 5 minutes ago I was cradling her in my arms. *Sigh* Gorgeous blog - you succeeded in making me smile.

    ひとつだけ質問いいですか?先日Placement testを受けて「学校が始まる1週間くらい前までにクラスナンバーや学校のアドレスを送るからちゃんとメールチェックしてね!」というメールがきてから・・・音沙汰がありません(笑)学校は13日から始まるのですが、そろそろ学校に問い合わせた方がいいのかなあ・・・でも電話かあ・・・緊張するなあ・・・と思っています。結構お知らせはギリギリなんでしょうか?><
