Its almost a year and yeah its been every bit as mad as they promise in all the blogs and adverts. Every passing month you think omg this month was hard how bad ass we are to cross that only to be faced by a new challenge in the next month. Parenting is difficult especially if you choose the earth mother route. The breast feeding, cloth diapering, baby wearing and above no sleep training kinds. Which means my days are as unstructured as they were ever since baby ritz started to no sleep .. Some days are good where we get 2 naps and early bed time and some days we have no naps and no bed time.
But my baby has grown leaps and bounds in these months, from a mere 2.17 kgs (4.7lbs) we have almost qudrapled our birthweight and weigh about 8.6 kgs now almost 19lbs , we can crawl and pull ourself to stand now. We have also started walking sideways and started to point out things! Anyways more on that later gtg.
Just dropped in to say hi and that we are surving!
Just dropping in for a quick post. Neel has crossed 3kgs !!!! yay!!
For the initial days i was pretty restricted with the new born, he was so small plus my father is around so i was stuck in our bedroom during feed times. Since i was recuperating from a cesarean plus infants love to sleep non feed times meant neel was either sleeping in his cot or was with mum and dad.
Now that my bubba is growing up, he is starting to spend some more time awake and with mum going away to a family wedding i need to take care of him and yet have my hands free to do small household chores. Also i have been told time and again that the proximity to momma will take away any PTSD neel and i suffered due to his early arrival.
Solution? i have decided to wear neel around the house for couple of hours. I have ordered this wrap for his initial days till we move to a baby carrier
For anyone else who is interested to know all about wraps and the kinda wraps that they find the best, there is plenty of literature available online but i found this post to be the most comprehensive
