Life With A Newborn: The First Month

My Petit Canard Pregnancy Collage

I’ve really wanted to share the little mans first month update for a few days now, maybe even a week or so but life has just been so ridiculously busy and tiring that I’ve been really struggling to find the time and energy to do it all. Since he was born we’ve had multiple important family birthdays and parties including the little lady’s third birthday, as well as two big family weddings on the horizon and our first family holiday abroad to plan for. But I’m glad I have finally been able to capture his first month because I know how quickly you forget all the little details. Its been an amazing whirlwind of a month and I didn’t want to overlook any part of it so here’s what the first month of our lives have looked like since he arrived.

 

Growth

The little man weighed 8lb 30z when he was born and lost just under 1lb during his first week, but it all went back on and more by week three when he weighted 8lb 14lbs at his check. I was really surprised by his birth weight as the little lady weighed 6lbs 14oz when she was born, and whilst Iwas expecting him to be bigger, I was only expecting him to be a little bigger in the 7lb range. Saying that, at 8lbs he doesn’t look or feel particularly bigger than the little lady was as a newborn. Although he has gone through newborn clothes fairly quickly, outgrowing them by his third week so we are now firmly into 0-3 month clothes which feels way too soon, sob!

Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding has on the whole, been going quite well. Week one was fairly painless and easy going, but week two presented quite a few challenges which we’ve been working through. By the forth week things have definitely started to feel like they are pretty established and most of the issues we had have been resolved. However the little man has started to have regular bouts of cluster feeding, usually late in the evenings between 9pm – 11pm which has been pretty hard going. Even though I know what it is and I know why it’s happening it’s still just as challenging as it was the first time round. Otherwise the little guy is feeding fairly regularly throughout the day, typically every two hours although he will sometimes go a little longer when we are out.

Sleeping

I forgot how much newborns sleep until the little man was born. I really don’t remember the little lady sleeping as much, or as well as he does. But the more I try to cast my mind back to what it was actually like the first time round, the more fuzzy my memories seem to be. We definitely aren’t in any type of routine yet, and I am not trying to force one either. Just like the first time round, I am very much following baby’s lead on eating and sleeping. The midwife asked me what type of routine we were in at his 3 week check and it caught me off guard as I wasnt expecting to be expected to be in some type of routine so I ended up making one up that vaguely reflected his “routine” as it were. That said, he definitely seems to have a loose sleeping pattern for the mornings and evenings, waking at around 6am for his first feed (if you can call it that given he still feeds through the night), going back to sleep until around 9am (ish) then having another feed and sleeping again until 11am (ish). The afternoons are really varied and influenced by what we are doing in the day time, but in the evenings he has a few cluster feeds from around 8pm (ish) and sleeps on and off until 11pm (ish), has a feed and then sleeps, waking roughly two times through the night for feeds. We’ve been using a SnuzPod and Cocoonababy this time round with the little man. Both are amazing at helping him, and us get a decent nights sleep. I know its early days and things can change, but the little guy loves sleeping in them and will easily and quickly drift off in them and stay asleep if put down in them. I have a lot of love for both of these products and really wish they were around when the little lady was a baby. I’ll be writing reviews on these soon so look out for them!

Post Partum Recovery

Recovery feels like it has taken longer the second time round. Almost double the amount of time it took me the first time. Although, I had such a medicalised first labour that I was pumped with all the drugs and didn’t really feel anything at all afterwards for days, maybe even weeks and that was after a forceps delivery and episiotomy! So it might just be that recovery the first time round felt easier and quicker because I had the luxury of not feeling anything, whereas this time round I have felt everything. Every. little. twinge. Which at times has been frustrating because I’ve wanted to get out and about and carry on like normal, but every time I have tried to my body has reminded me that I need to take it easy. So after the first week of physically overdoing it and paying for it, I spent the second and third weeks taking it really easy and listening to my body. Thankfully by the third week I finally started to feel like my normal self which was such a relief.

Life

This time we’re out and about so much quicker than when we had the little lady. I’m pretty sure that we didn’t venture very far from home for the first six weeks, paranoid about her needing her first vaccinations before we properly exposed her to the world. This time round life seems to have continued pretty much as it was and we have been out and about carrying on with everyday life as if nothing much has changed. The first week of the little mans life saw us as at a family birthday party and shopping in Bluewater, and by week four we were venturing to the London aquarium in central London and Bocketts Farm in Surrey. Everyone says that the second time round you just get on with things and I have to say that has definitely been our experience so far!

Siblings

The little lady adores the little man and calls him her baby which is really sweet. She loves to kiss him, cuddle him and hold him all the time and has been a great little helper with changing nappies, getting him dressed and giving him baths. Generally she seems to be adjusting quite well to having a sibling, although there have definitely been a few moments. As expected we saw this in the first few days after he arrived when she wanted our attention and got upset or frustrated because we havent been able to immediately give it to her. There have been moments when she has asked me to put the baby down, or when she will ask for something just before I start breastfeeding. There have also been a few moments where she has asked to be taken to the toilet and then not do anything, and very recently she has developed a fear of shadows, the dark and wont go to another room in the house without one of us coming with her. I am hoping that as she adjusts to our new normal these things will stop as quickly as they started. But right now, as frustrating and exhausting as it is, we are trying to be understanding and give her the attention that she needs from us.

Milestones

The little man’s umbilical cord took a little while to drop off, finally dropping off around day 10 which felt like forever. I hated waking up and seeing it each morning, especially towards the end when it was hanging on by a thread!

The little man had his first bath in the second week and really enjoyed it. He was really chilled out and just let us wash him, which was very different to his sister who cried throughout her first bath. We also let the little lady join him for his first bath which she loved, and was a really nice moment and far easier that I thought it would be.

Most Difficult Moments

The cluster feeding and the night feeds have definitely been the darkest and the most difficult moments so far. Cluster feeding almost broke me the other night. Back to back feeding from 11am – 2am is exhausting work and really pushed me to the edge after a couple of nights of broken sleep, but I managed to push through it and persevere. From experience I know that these moments are only temporary and will get better over time. I just hope that it is days and weeks, not months we’re talking!

Favourite Moments

Registering the little man in his second week and applying for his first passport were exciting moments, although getting his passport pictures were fairly stressful. Have you ever tried to get a passport picture done for a newborn that can’t support their own head? Not fun at all. Although since trying quite a few people have told us that they’ve used companies that you can send your own pictures off which would have been far easier and a lot less stressful. Good tip for any of you that need to get these done for your little ones in the future!

Predictably time has flown by, the little man has grown quickly and we’ve all fallen in love with him. Its been an amazing and enjoyable first month. Welcome to the world little one..

    Ah what a gorgeous update – I don’t think I have congratulated you on your gorgeous little man yet!! It sounds like you’re doing amazingly well and that the little lady is loving life as a big sister. It’s funny how quickly you forget how hard cluster feeding can be, isn’t it? And I imagine it’s that much harder when you have another child that you have to get up for in the morning so you can’t catch up on sleep! I saw my friend’s newborn the other day and couldn’t believe how much he slept, so sweet. I am shocked you were asked about a routine this early on! That seems crazy to me although I am terrible at routines so I’m probably not the right person to know whether that’s normal or not… Lovely post, so happy for your beautiful family. #DreamTeam

    Congratulations on the arrival of the little man and for making it through the first month. My little man is now 12 weeks and so I can confirm there is light at the end of the tunnel. My eldest is 21 months so it’s been really hard work getting into a groove with them both as she is still very much in need of me when we’re out and about. I can definitely say though that second time around is easier, we were also out and about a lot quicker and I wonder if it’s a boy thing about feeding??? Oh my, those evening cluster feeds nearly killed me off too. But now at 12 weeks he is sleeping typically from 9-5.30 most nights – hoorah! Now I just need to see if I can get them both to have a semi decent nap during the afternoon so I can get back to blogging (something I definitely didn’t manage to make time for!) Sounds like you’re doing amazingly well and I hope you soon get your evenings back. Xx

    It sounds like you’re doing fabulously! I’m not surprised you were up and about faster this time when you’ve got another little one to maintain the “normal” for. My little guys umbilical cord took ages to come off, just over 2 weeks I think! He was also a bit sleeper (and still is……. mostly) which is lovely as when he’s awake I’ve got all the little jobs done and am ready for a cuddle or some fun. Enjoy these special moments #bestandworst

    Your photos are so gorgeous. This is a wonderful account of how things are going, I really wish I had done the same thing. It sounds like you are all doing brilliantly – I found the cluster feeding a really dark time too, full of feelings wondering when it would end!

    I love that series of bump shots, and what a great first month you have all had. I love that he’s already been to the aquarium and bocketts! I definitely found cluster feeding and the sleepless nights the worst thing about having a newborn.x #dreamteam

  9. July 27, 2016 / 10:14 pm

    Can’t believe your little man is a month old already!I love your pictures. Cluster feeding is so hard, my boy used to feed from about 8-12 most nights when he was first born and it was so hard! It doesn’t last forever though and it sounds like you’re doing amazing. It’s crazy to read that you’ve done so much already in the first month but I guess you’re right and when you already have a child you just get on with things. Lovely update xx #BloggerClubUK

      Thank you, we’re getting there I think. Some things are definitely easier second time round and some things harder because you already have one child that you still need to look after. Trying to enjoy it all because I know it goes so quickly, even though some moments are really hard!

  10. July 28, 2016 / 2:44 pm

    Wow reading this has made me very nostalgic about the time when my little 19 month old princess was a newborn. It sounds like you’re adjusting brilliant and enjoying every moment. Lovely to read and put a smile on my face for sure. #bestandworst

    I absolutely loved the first month! I was always hearing horror stories from friends but I found it great! My little guy slept a lot too, he’s great at sleeping through the night still. I love reminiscing about the early stages. Such a magical time. I always get broody reading these types of posts! #Marvmondays

    What a lovely post. I found that the night feeds were the worst part when I had my second too. Having two children to look after in the day is really tiring and when bed time comes all you want to do is sleep, that doesn’t always go to plan with a newborn in the house though! Your pictures are gorgeous!

  20. August 1, 2016 / 12:03 pm

    Aww what a lovely post! I can so relate to the cluster feeding!! And I did think because I’ve done it all before it would be a lot easier second time round which although it is, it’s still hard work which has surprised me. I am super impressed about Bluewatet’ I’ve still not managed a shopping trip. A few more pounds off and o may so just that! Thanks for hosting #MarvMondays xx

    I do remember getting passport photos though – yes, it was stressful, we had a tired an upset baby haha. It makes me laugh every time I see that photos when we travel.

NC is now nearly 11 months and it has FLOWN by. Enjoy the days as much as you can – it is SO exhausting at the start but it really does go in a flash.

    Your photos are absolutely gorgeous! It’s so lovely reading this, as it takes me right back, many years now. I’d forgotten, for example, that daughter 4’s umbilical cord took forever to fall off, whereas the other 3 had been so quick. You do just forget things, so writing about it is wonderful. Thank you for sharing. It sounds as if you are coping really well. Those cluster feeds are killers, but as you say: you power on through. Keep doing such a good job! Alison x #MarvMondays

    Yep I remember the first time we brought The Baby home and The Kid was like “what does it do?”‘we laughed so hard and it made me think how different things where. With The Kid, we where in awe but with The Baby we just kind of took everything in our stide. Agree about healing taking longer. I think I bled for ages the second time round the after pains killed.

    Gosh you appear to have travelled a lot. I guess the big difference here being that we are feeding them differently. It’s lovely that your daughter shared in the first bath. I’ve been told they do regress and copy the younger sibling. We’ve also had the little ones passport photo sent off and went to a well known cobblers. #MarvMondays

    It’s amazing how much we forgot about looking after newborns. I’m glad that your kids are getting along, it was a big fear for us too but our eldest daughter was besotted from the start. Her brother has taken more time but now feeds her and looks after her (sometimes…).

  42. August 7, 2016 / 6:23 pm

    Such a lovely update. I’m sorry to hear you’ve felt a little uncomfortable with recovery and with the broken sleep. I remember the pain after both of mine and it made it difficult to even get out of the car, but getting out as normal helps. You’re right about just wanting to carry on as normal the second time, you’re so used to your family dynamics already one extra little life doesn’t change things as drastically as your first. If you’re still feeling uncomfortable I’d recommend putting your sanitary towels in the freezer and showering as often as you can, it’s a welcome relief.

    So sweet that your daughter has taken so well to him, bless her x #marvmondays

      Ah such a good tip – sanitary towels in the freezer! I wish I’d know a few weeks ago now. If sounds like the kind of thing that would be a very welcome relief πŸ™‚

    We ventured out a lot quicker with our second too and felt a lot more confident. We were so cautious with our first. We have the snuzpod and love it. Es grown out of it now sadly. Hope you’re all we’ll x
