I totally agree, if bubs is gaining weight let them sleep. sleep is very important, not just for bubs but for you too. mikayla slept through last night. most nights she only wakes once. thankfully because you can't do the 'sleep while the baby is sleeping' when you have a 3 yr old.
as a first time mum, I remember it all being a bit overwhelming, and exhusting. remember to ask lots of questions, and ask for help when you need it. no one expects us to know everything or be able to do everything, although most mums try to. sad being a first time mum is tough, but it does get better, and just like the memories of the birth, in time you will only remember the good things about these first few months.
Mikayla is doing well she is starting to grow real hair under her baby fluff. she slept better for her first sleep of the day, her mid day sleep is still pretty non exsistant, and her pm sleep was not to bad, going to try to keep this up to help when she is ready for a routine.
we had our house valuated today, we are planning a tree change (sea change) going to leave Melbourne and move to Bairnsdale. I grew up in the country so I would love my girls to have a country up bringing.
