๐Ÿ’™ Mini Plum Baby ๐Ÿ’™

3rd March 2020


Did you realise I was breastfeeding my baby in this photo? Wait….. did you even spot the camouflaged baby in this photo? ๐Ÿ™Š

I am loving breastfeeding this time round. Despite his tongue tie, Eddison feeds like a dream which couldnโ€™t be more different to the experience I had with Otis. I hated breastfeeding for the first 4 months with Otis; I had to syringe feed him for the first 5 days because he couldnโ€™t latch, when he did latch, it was a shallow latch and it was such hard work and very painful at times too. I am so proud that we managed it for 26 months in the end!

So I was prepared for the same struggles with Eddison…… but low and behold heโ€™s a complete natural. To the extent that he has never dropped his birth weight. In fact when we went to his first weight check 4 days after his birth, he had *put on* 50 grams ๐Ÿ˜ฑ the midwives were shocked, as was I! So for that reason they decided not to interfere with his tongue tie. But after speaking to more professionals Iโ€™ve learned that his tongue tie may be a reason why heโ€™s so sick – because he canโ€™t fully control the flow of milk coming in and takes down too much. Iโ€™ve also learned that when my milk settles properly at about 3 months old, Eddison will have to work harder for it which is when we may have a problem, but they are reluctant to snip a tongue tie after 12 weeks. So now Iโ€™m trying to figure out if I should get it snipped now or not…. ๐Ÿค” hopefully the health visitor can help advise me about it tomorrow.

I love to twin with my boys, but although there is a lot of matching clothes out there for mothers & daughters, thereโ€™s barely anything for mothers & sons. This is definitely the first thing I have ever come across that I can twin with Eddison whilst nursing him too! So when @miniplumbaby got in touch offering to send this set for us to try out I was over the moon! It includes a nursing nightie and dressing gown for me, a sleepsuit, mittens and hat for Eddison and even a matching pillowcase. It also comes in a pink option! I absolutely love it because itโ€™s comfy, easy to nurse in and cosy for Eddison.
