Kell, as Jenn said with the shields, just squirt a bit of breast milk into them and that helps them stick. They are a bit tricky to get the hang of. I found often as I was trying to attach Noah they would slip and slide around and then I'd have to start all over again. Hopefully its only a temporary thing for you. Not sure what Kallum's crying could be, only suggestion is that lots of babies have a period each day where they are quite unsettled and like to cluster feed and it usually occurs in the evenings! Even if he's not hungry, maybe he just enjoys mummy's cuddles too much. Time to tag team between you and DH with the cuddles so that you can both eat and rest your arms!
Jenn, hope your sore throat has gotten better and re the cooking - I didn't cook for the first few months of Noah's life. I have no idea where all my time went, but it wasn't cooking that's for sure! Even this time round, I've made a few casseroles and pastas for the freezer before Darcy arrived, and half the time I don't even have the time to do some spuds or pasta to go with them! Things will get easier and all fall into place and in the meantime, you're keeping the take away joints in business or finding all sorts of delicious toppings for toast!!!
Sasha, happy anniversary for the other day, hope you got to the beach!
My sister is taking Noah to a play centre tomorrow with her DP and step son, so I'll just have Darcy for the morning. Hopefully we'll be able to catch up on a bit of rest. Speaking of Darcy, he obviously knows my dinner is ready because he's woken for a feed!!!
Hope you're all well. Happy washing to the mummies of the chuckers!
