My little boy Jack was born 1 October, induction birth because I developing preeclampsia. I had a real bad pregnancy with him. Everything from him pressing against an ovarian cyst (Ouch), severe reflux, cellulitis, after the cat scratched my leg to hypertension and preeclampsia.
Bit weird, my first baby, Caitlin was the perfect pregnancy, so the specialist is still scratching his head as to why I had preeclampsia with a second child but not the first. I still say it's because he was a boy.
He's a reflux baby, which is slowly starting to come right, somedays we get through with no major spilling. And since the plunket nurse put him on AR formula, he's turned in to a really happy baby- after me suffering PND because he was so unsettled and constantly crying.
As for development, he's starting to pull himself forward in his car seat now, and is constantly smiling and gurgling. He's found his hands and yes the whole fist is going in the mouth.
He's now sleeping through the night most of the time - Yay, which is great as I'm back at work.
Leigh, I've also got a pacifier for sleep times too - so he won't suck his fingers.
