We went to see our little Princess on Sunday as they were kept in hospital an extra day; something to do with bacteria (?) but nothing serious.
Couldn't get her to open her eyes for the camera, but they are dark. She has the laid back temperament of her dad and is going to be tall like her mothers side.
She's feeding well and sleeping well, so that is also good.
I don't know where the last few days have gone too, as I knew on Tuesday that "R" was going in to have the baby on Thursday; then she got pushed back to Friday as the hospital was so busy; so the last few days have revolved around waiting to meet our little Princess.
The hospital was that busy on Friday night that they had to make six women go to other hospitals to have their babies. Things have changed a lot since we had our children. We had to sign in and out of the ward. Also they don't call it a Maternity Ward, they call it Post-Partum. I had to ask someone as we couldn't find the Maternity Ward on the listing.
When I had our kids we kept them on a strict four hour feeding, that doesn't seem to be the case nowadays. Also they kick you out of hospital after 24 hours unless there is a problem. I was in hospital for seven days with our son, granted he had jaundice but if I remember rightly five days was the norm for your first baby. Even when I had dd I was in 48 hours and that was a straight forward delivery.
One thing that I did think was neat in the room "R" is in there was a sofa that turned into a bed, so that "M" has been sleeping there are well. I thought that it was lovely that both mum and dad get to bond with baby all at the same time. There wasn't that option when our kids were born.
Do you think things have changed a lot since you have had children?
