Formula 1

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

Well, that was Cillian’s first dose of formula milk, and he chugged it down without batting an eyelid. 200ml of it, too, which is more than can be expressed usually. We had a great afternoon and evening, visiting friends in Waterbeach and Cambridge, so he’d had time to work up an appetite. Ka was slightly upset, though, since this was his first ever feed without any mother’s milk.

Anyway, it was a good test, since Karyn is taking the youngster to France on Monday, and we wanted to try out the formula, which she will have with her as a back up.

Anyway, he is out like a light (as usual, really) so it is time for us to sleep, too!

*yawn*It looks like it’s not easy, being a new mum. I am stating the bleeding obvious, I know, and if you’re an expectant parent, you’ll hear / read it everywhere you go.

But it’s true, that’s the thing. Whatever mental preparation you do; however much you read and imagine and plan… it’s going to be different to what you expected. This is Nature that we’re dealing with, so it does it’s own thing, and we’re along for the ride, to a large extent.

It kind of reminds me of something else… something that we usually experience earlier in life, before pregnancy and babies and worrying about colic. (more…)

Merci à tous pour les emails, les commentaires sur le blog, et pour vos voeux. C'est très excitant en plus que je peux partager tous nos nouvelles avec nos ami et famille!

(OK, I know that only aikido people are likely to understand the title of this post…) Young Cillian has a good appetite, after his exciting introduction to the world so Karyn isn’t getting very much sleep, because he is pretty hungry. Luckily, dad (that’s me) is having lots of success (so far!) getting him to sleep, so that everyone can get some rest. (more…)
