granddaddy & grandson sleeping together

My dad-in-law has been bringing me lunch everyday [cept for weekends] since the confinement nanny left. He knows I'm too lazy to cook and and fears that I may end up eating instant noodles or those boxed microwaveable spagetti. Also, with a baby in the house, it's a little tough for me to go out to eat. Damn paiseh man but mom-in-law says that he likes to be kept busy since he's so free in the day [he's retired]. Also, he gets to see li' Aidan daily and enjoys playing with him. Dad also helps to tend to Aidan whenever I have tons of chores to do. Am really thankful to have such caring in-laws :)

Today was so cute!!Dad was carrying Aidan and patting him to sleep and he too fell asleep while doing so..

Aidan has indeed put on weight. He's abt 4.2kg now which is okay for a 1 mth old kid but he has grown quite fast since he was only 2.77kg when he was borne. Previously, I didn't feel that tired when I was carrying him around but now, my arms & back ache like crazy at the end of the day. But he's still adorable lah!

Don't be TOO paiseh about FIL bringing food. Accept all the help you'll get! It'll keep you from going slightly insane.

Are you breastfeeding?

Oh yah. I weaned Jordan at 11mths, and Tasmin at 17 mths..

It is quite siong, but I always nursed lying down so I got a little bit of a rest while feeding them. They were quite adept, and I trained them to nurse only one side at every feed. The real convenience is at night when I don't have to leave my cosy bed and go out to make milk. Just pick her up, take her to bed, latch her on and go back to sleep. Heh.

Even when I was slowly weaning, the night feeds were the very last to go.

Yeah u r right abt the sanity part..Actually, having an LJ helps to destress a fair bit. Looking after the baby the whole day can be v tiring but just one little smile from him and I'll forget how exhausted I am :)

Actually, I'm bfg and giving him fm. I know I should try to bf full-time but I dunno..He will latch on for a fair bit (at times longer than an hour) and then reject..but he continues to fuss about (like he's hungry) and refuses to latch on anymore..I'll then give him fm..abt 120ml worth. Maybe that's y he's growing so fast. Now, he sleeps about 3-4 hrs stretch so it's ok..wakes up abt once a night so far..*phew*..

Erh wait?!! U sleep and bf at the same time????? I am so afraid to do that w/out dropping the Aidan!

grand dads and grand kids have a tendency to do that together...

they'd also have a funny way of ganging up on the parents too... hrmm...
