  1. He’s so cute! I have learned that just when we think we have the schedule/baby figured out, they go and change it on us. The first year is quite the wild ride. Sounds like you’re doing really well!

      Thanks, lovely – he’s definitely not bad looking 😉
      They’re crafty little things and often want to cluster feed when a) I want to cook dinner or b) when guests come round. Typical!
      With all this in mind, I’m still enjoying it – it’s certainly a ride! X

      Thanks lovely – hope you’re well. X

  7. Oh he is just super-cute! The increase in feeds is due to growth spurts. They tend to happen at about 3 days old, 3 weeks old, six weeks old and then whenever the hell they damn well feel like it! However as thy get older they are more efficient at feeding so it will get much quicker, I used to spend 40 mins every hour feeding bambino at 3 and 6 weeks old. By the time he was 4 months it had dropped to 10 mins max.
    Babies are masters at changing the rules, make sure you don’t worry too much and go with the flow!
    Sounds like you’re doing an amazing job! X

    He is so effing cute!!! And babies do that! Just PRETEND that you haven’t adjusted to their schedule, so that they actually stay in it. The second you say, ‘Oh, i’ll go between 2-4 after he feeds and is down for a nap!” all hell breaks loose!!

    I’m just catching up on your posts as I’m a bit behind – I know that in one of your later posts you have said that you are starting to come to terms with being able to do less stuff other than mothering – but I just wanted to comment to say that you really need to give yourself a break and stop worrying about folding up clean clothes and getting the washing up done. Those things will get done – eventually. Enjoy these moments with your baby, and let yourself be too tired to get up and do the washing. Have a day in a baby bubble on the sofa if you feel like it – your wife and your son will enjoy you more, and you’ll feel more satisfied when you look back on these first months.
    And … that boy is KAAAAA-YUTE!
