Co-sleeping: What’s the Problem?

I recently read a blog post about co-sleeping and it’s benefits. Obviously this isn’t for everybody, and pre-children, the idea of sharing my bed with anyone other then The Boyfriend was pretty horrifying.  But when The Princess came along, I fell head over heels in love with her and didn’t want to be apart from her for a minute.  She also demanded to be fed every hour, which got rather… Continue reading

Things I Had Forgotten About Newborns…

…that I’m quickly remembering

Newborns feed.  A lot.  An awful lot.  In fact, in the last 8 days, that’s really all Little Pea has done.  I’ve barely seen his whole face, just one half at a time while it’s butted up against my boobs.

Newborns poo a lot.  Second only in frequency to feeding.  However, the smell of newborn poo is strangely alluring.  I say alluring, that’s probably… Continue reading
