Chloe is a month old!
C and I have been talking about the night we went to the hospital and if it weren’t for the 2 emergency CS who came after us Chloe should have been born on the 24th. All those seem just like it happened yesterday.
During our hospital stay we struggled with breastfeeding that I almost resorted to formula good thing the nurses around me was encouraging that I was feeding her just fine. Here we are a month after happy to say that I have established a good breast milk supply.
Oh sleep..well I’m lucky if I get a good 3 hours and that only happens if she sleeps beside me in bed with her Kuya Vierte. The first week we came home I let her sleep in the crib but that didn’t work for us, I kept checking if she was ok and by the time I’m sure that she is breathing well and I’m about to sleep Chloe wakes up hungry.
In the morning though she sleeps long hours in her crib and bouncer. Morning however is my time with Vierte who was a little jealous of the time I’m giving her sister. A week after he now understands that Chloe needs Mommy more.
This month we are going to introduce pacifier and bottle (with my breast milk) with Dad or Grandma having the task of doing this. I too have to prepare myself since we only have 2 months till my MIL goes back to Pinas.
To our little Princess,
Thank you for bringing more joy to our lives. Your Kuya loves you so much, singing lullabies when you cry and just can’t stop giving you hugs and kisses.
I love you Chloe! and I love you Vierte!
Ahhhh… I remember that feeling!
I actually still suffer from all that, even though Marwan is 18 months!
He still wakes up a few times at night!
I’ve resorted to sharing the big bed with her, Vierte and their Dad just so I can get sleep.
