I’d forgotten how hectic this newborn phase can be. Lincoln has “woken up” from his sleepiness and is now much more challenging to settle after feeding. Yesterday was a tough day. He didn’t have much of a decent sleep from 7am until 2pm! In the meantime I had Fraser following me everywhere and the TV on all day as a means to try and entertain him.
The weather hasn’t been helping. It’s been non-stop rain so we’ve been unable to even go to the mailbox.
There are positives though. We had our first day out last Thursday while Fraser was at daycare. I took Lincoln to do the shopping with me and a few other things. He had two 3 hour sleeps and we fed in the foodcourt quite successfully.
On Friday we had the Early Childhood nurse come visit from Goulburn. She was lovely and reported that Lincoln had put on 310g since leaving hospital. Excellent! That’s one stressor I don’t have this time around.
I need to make my post-natal appointment, and the paed appointment.
