Welcoming Caylee

Baby Caylee was born last Wednesday night.
Born naturally into the world after 3 hours of labour,
she gave mummy a new experience to labour!
She looks very different from her brother, in mummy's eyes.
But to daddy, she looks very much like Christopher.


Her neck is stronger than her brother's at birth and
she can turn and lift her head now after 4 days.
She eats very well, taking 1-2 ounces every 2-3 hours.
But she doesn't drink as much water as Christopher did
when he was her age.
She is on formula + breastmilk.
Saturday mummy had breast engorgement no matter how much she tried to avoid it. But thankfully it only lasted one day. Right now mummy can only express 1 ounce per time.
***


I am alternating 3rd party speaking and self expression.....
so you know the state of confusion I am in.
The result of not having a proper bath or proper rest!
Will blog more about Caylee another day.....in the mean time....

Caylee is a beautiful name..
take care.. of thing at a time ok ? and rest well. of the confinement heat bothers you, splash lots of talcum on body n use lotsa dry shampoo to scrub out the scum frm head but do remember to keep bfeeding area talcum free.. and clean. hang in there.. 30 days of confinement do seem like eternity.. that's why it's called 'confinement' but it's actually only 4 wks.
