    That's great Ophelia. We are in the midst of a feeding marathon. I'm scared I drop him I'm so tired

    It's terrible isnt it I was really struggling for the 2 weeks - I was so tired I felt nauseous - I don't know if you remembered me mentioning it in the April tri 3 thread
    I know this will be short lived & we will be back to the marathon again but it's bliss for now. I still can't believe my eyes on the clock. She's just had her feed & now tucked up in bed sleeping. I'm having a sleep in (hopefully) in the morning as we have friends arriving from Paris tomorrow staying with us so ill get as much sleep as I can & then get the house in order so I can have a nap in the afternoon. Adelise sleeps in the basket beside the bed & my son joins me in my bed & we listen to a relaxation cd & nap all together after lunch. - I love it as I have that moment to have him in my arms. I miss having him all to myself - its so hard when Adelise requires so much from me so the little time I have with tobias is precious & having that hour of him in my arms is something I look fwd to in the afternoon.

    He did eventually settle and I think we slept about 2 hours.
    Sounds like Adelise is doing really well. Expecting MW visit today and I'm thinking they will weigh him to see how much he's dropped. Fx it's not too bad

    He has lost 11% which alongside mild jaundice and some urates in his nappy isn't great. They've advised formula top ups in consultation with the paediatrician who was on call. They said feed 3 hourly then 30ml formula and express as much as possible to stimulate supply. He has had 1 bottle so far but is boobie feeding again now and latched without a problem. Fx it doesn't create any nipple confusion So with all of the above, no nap for Mummy!
    Am I right in thinking you gave Adelise some top ups Ophelia?

    I did Jules. I had a shocking first 2 weeks with the constant feeding & got over tired. We did it only for 24 hrs then went back to bf. she was also jaundice. When we got home I had her in the sun & that helped a lot - we had the heating on max plus the wood fire & stripped her for a while with the sun on her. Thinking of you xxx I know how hard it is

    Bless her I can see her little "sun tan". Good to know things worked out for you with topping up. He's had 2 bottles so far and still wanted boob 2 hourly which is reassuring

    Jules & FS how was the night?
    My bliss was short lived - as I expected she was one hungry unsettled girl
    I'm feeding her now but I can tell she's knackered so hoping that means we will get some zzzzzz

    We had a challenging night too Ophelia. He slept 10-12 and so did I but was fussy from 12-5ish. Really difficult to get him latched and all the screaming woke DD even though I camped downstairs!

    Do you know her fussy moment is around the same time jules - she starts at 11pmish till 3amish. I dread that time. Right now after the morning feed she sleeps blissfully but as you know the toddler wakes for breakfast and there goes our sleep!
    I found this if you scroll down a bit you will see fussiness in the evening
