The story of Lilly and baby Oscar
Pregnancy – 37 weeks and 5 days pregnant, four stone heavier and still another four weeks until birth. Feeling very sore and achy but crazily excited!
Just born – After 33 hours of labour and a birth that did not go as planned, our little man arrived safe and well. My ‘huge’ baby was 7lb 1oz and we were ecstatic.
Sleepy days – After cluster feeds all through the evening and very sleepless nights, we spent many of our early days snoozing on the sofa.
First bottle – I found expressing really difficult and Oscar absolutely hated the bottle. We quickly decided that it was not worth the stress and upset.
Breastfeeding – Seven weeks old and after a difficult start which was full of self-doubt, I finally felt breastfeeding was established.
Baby Led Weaning – Six months old and the start of our brilliant, but very very messy, baby led weaning journey.
14 months – my little man and my best friend, I can’t wait to do it all again.
