Ive only just started on this site, i had my little girl (Haiden Maree) on the 5th feb. I was 35 weeks pregnant and had to have an emergency c-section. Haiden was in distress, all the doctors went into a panic when they pulled out a baby that weighed only 980grams. We were flown to Flinders where we spent 5 weeks. Haiden is amazing, she beat all the odds, she never needed any oxygen or anything, just need to grow. doctors decided that i had had pre eclempsa.
To look at her now you wouldn't think that she is the same baby, shes a picture of health. she still only weighs 6.7kgs (tiny) but she talks and crawls and is almost walking, she has been meeting all milestones when shes meant to, some before time.
I am a first time mum, and i count every day a blessing that my baby girl is here with us, even when shes being a cheeky little monster.
She however is a bad sleeper, i think its because i'd been holding her while she slept for so long. i still have to put her to sleep and then normally she wakes up after i put her down. if anyone has any suggestion that would be great, i dont like doing the controlled crying techique.
love to here from mums. thankyou for letting me tell my story.
