Good Morning, originally uploaded by indiaeden.

Waking up to this gorgeous little bundle is a blessing, even if he is still keeping me on my toes.
We are off to the breastfeeding clinic tomorrow...can you believe after breastfeeding four other children I'm struggling with this one? Me and the breast pump are best of friends right now!

Don't be shy, say hello!

  1. That is a most gorgeous child Jeanette. I fully understand the feeding problems with Ernest... Erin(my 4th) was really difficult to feed at first. She was tiny compared to my other babies though so that may have made a difference. This little one is smaller than your previous babies isn't he so maybe that has a bearing on it... I remember I couldn't get Erin's mouth to open wide enough.

  3. Oh my...what a cutie!
    I'm sure you and your breasts will be fine in a couple of days. First time with my son wasn't a problem, but the second time with my daughter I had some extremely hard first days - but we're still going on, it's been more than 7 months now :-)

    Love,
    Daria

  4. Aaaw hun, you know it's an emotional thing and you can't help but be an emotional bundle yourself right now, but boy oh boy is he a cutie :o) Once the jaundice issue resolves itself and you can relax a little, you'll be just fine Mwah XX

  5. What a sweetie! Hope all the feeding problems/jaundice are soon a distant memory. I found the laid back breastfeeding approach helpful with baby no. 2, and it really helped her get a better latch... good luck all round - thinking of you, Florence and of course, Ernest often.

  6. Wow, what a truly gorgeous boy Ernest is Jeanette. I hope you get what you need at the breastfeeding clinic, it is so common to have problems with subsequent children regardless of how many times you've been there before, try to relax and take your time and have as much skin to skin time as you can take (though I'm sure he will never be put down!)
    Love to you all

  8. I hope BFing clinic helps. What part are you having problems with? I had more pain with brynn but Tobias ironicaly was the one who wasn't latched right. He was 3 weeks earlier than Brynn so maybe that was the reason.
    Stay stubbourn and stick with it unless it becomes too distressing to either of you. But you know all this stuff already ..

  9. Jeanette I'm sorry, I am really late wishing you congratulations on the birth of your absolutely gorgeous new son. I am holding you you are all in my thoughts every day and was thinking of you on Florence's birthday last week.

    I'm sorry to hear things aren't all plain sailing with the jaundice and bf, though like themightyone said there's a lot of emotion going on with y'all there.

    I hope all your irl friends will be able to support you with bf. I don't think there'd be any shortage of interested parties- Ernest was the talk of the LLL picnic. I'm sure you can imagine the clucking... Shout up XXX

    Love to you all and take it easy on yourself XXX

  10. Ernest is gorgeous - congratulations! I just wanted to leave a comment as my fourth daughter, who will be three months tomorrow, had bad jaundice and we also struggled with breastfeeding at the start (a surprise when I'd had no problems feeding her sisters). The jaundice made her so sleepy she would only feed a small amount and then I would get engorged making latching on even more difficult for her. She dropped 12oz of her birth weight and then gained almost nothing for ten days. I did supplement with some formula to get her weight gain going and apparently the billyrubin clings to the formula on the way out! Breastfeeding was very painful for the first five weeks but now we are exclusively and easily breastfeeding and she has started sleeping through the night! So, hang in there - I hope it gets easier for you soon.

  11. oh the trials of new babyness, I had such trouble with baby no.6 getting her to feed, in the end I went to bed for a weekend with lots of chocolate (for the milk!) and fed her in the rugby tackle way supported by lots of pillows. I'd have given up if I hadn't fed successfully before..........although I was told mums with large families often have trouble as we think we know what we are doing. it will pass and green cabbage leaves chilled are fab xx

  12. Sorry about the BF issues. Just when you thought you had it all worked out. I'm sure you and sweet Ernest will find your groove together soon.
    Please, please, please keep those pics coming (if you can stop cuddling him). He's extra yummy.

  17. Hope things went well at the clinic today. I pumped for 6 weeks with my son at first so understand how frustrating it can be without all the other worries you may have ((hugs))

  19. Gorgeous pic of Ernest. Really sorry to hear that you've been in and out of hospital - hope his jaundice is settling. And I hope the BF clinic was helpful....

  20. Oh Jeanette. He is so, so scrumptious. I hope the breast feeding sorts out soon.

  21. Oh, he is precious. I hope that the feeding gets better. (((hugs))))

  22. oh Jeannette he's absolutely gorgeous. I feel for you on the bf front as Maxi (no 4) was an absolutely hideous experience. He add TT and a HP and the pain was unbearable. It took us 8 weeks to settle down so fingers crossed things will be a bit easier as you're having the TT snipped soon.

    Thinking of you xxx
