So much for having a ‘date night’ and peaceful weekend… Date night Friday turned in to “get take aways, forget the DVD and fall asleep in front of the telly;! hehe 🙂 Perhaps another night then!
Saterday we enjoyed the braai (and cake), Madam had her 1st night outing (bathing and falling asleep at Ouma’s house). No hassles. Was tricky to make sure everyone got enough attention. So her cousin helped bath, Ouma helped dress and Tannie did the feeding. Oupa and Uncle had some ‘arm time’ so thats then sorted! I think babies are the stuff family fueds start over….
On Sunday both Jessica & me woke with a cough. It just got worse through the day… Took her to the Dr this morning quick, only a sinus infection, thank goodness its not in her chest yet. Got the right meds and hope she will get better soon! And I have the adult version… I hope it would rain soon so that the air can be cleaned a bit… Its not contagious, so unfortunately she’s back at the creche, snot en al!
So our Irene Dairy Farm outing is postphoned again! The next 2 weekends we are busy though!
I want to ask you ladies (sorry Scott, but perhaps you would know too..):
Is there some cardinal rule about expressing milk and then mixing 2 batches together?
Please note – its not bottles she has drunk from yet. Im not getting enought milk for a full feed (150 – 200ml) So Im getting 90ml and either 60 or 90ml. So can I mix the 2 for a full feed? On the weekend she started finishing her formula bottles (200ml). Upping them now to 230ml (200ml water with 8 scoops).
I have also decided to rather start expressing at work to increase my milk – for now. Will see how it goes this week. Not sure entirely where I will be doing this… will figure something out!
Enjoy the rest of your Monday!!
