Happy birthday to me!

I first opened my eyes to this wonderful world on 19 June 2009. Mum gave me a good cuddle before the nurse took me away to be poked, pinched and what not! Everything around me was so new just like me. I was cleaned and passed back to mum who was wide awake to cuddle and talk to me inspite of what she had just been through. The 40 weeks wait and the 3 hours of pushing was all worthwhile for her.

Mum didn't sleep properly at the hospital and kept on peeping at me to make sure I was doing ok. The nurses and doctor kept on waking up mum and me to check on our health. One of the nurses taught my mum how to make a formula bottle as well as breastfeed. It was very difficult to take in the breastmilk at first because my nose kept getting squashed and mum made sure that I got the hang of it slowly. She even got a cool photo taken by the nurse as a token of breastfeeding. Well done, mum!

The first visitors were dad and grandma and they took in turn to cuddle me and take my photos. They were very happy to visit us at the hospital even if it was just for 2 hours. Mum was dying to take me home but she had to wait another night as she had lost lots of blood.

After final checkup on 21 June 2009, both of us were discharged and dad came to collect us from the hospital. Everything was prepared for me in our flat - it was where I belonged with my family!

Link of the Day: is a cool organisation which supports breastfeeding!
