I didn't have one of my good days today as I appear to be a bit windy, so I was awake most of the day either squawking or feeding. Much to my Mummy's annoyance I stopped when Daddy arrived home from work. To give my Mummy a little bit of a break Daddy took me out in the buggy and pushed me around the block a couple of times. That kept me quiet and by the time we'd gone one and a half times around the block I'd fallen asleep!
Later on in the afternoon I decided that if I was awake and not feeding I was going to cry. I cried pretty much all late afternoon and well into the evening with the only respite when I was feeding.
Mummy is feeling better by the day, enough to have her photo taken holding me, though I'm about to gum her thumb!
Quite Simply the best Mummy in the galaxy, having to put up with me squawking and her soreness, coupled with an infection. She's fantastic!
She also explained that when first attached I take short gulps to get things going and then take longer sups as the milk flows.....
Mummy is still a bit poorly down below after the Episiotomy she needed to give birth to me.
