Colic alert this week! What a grumpy baby... Most evenings we have had 3hours of constant crying from 7pm until 10pm. Exhausting! I'm not entirely sure if she has a cold as her nose seems quite bunged up or if she has allergies like Husband. She has sneezed at least 10 times a day since birth so it is an ongoing issue which has recently escalated.
We've been out and about lots. Excitedly we visited my work for the first time and had a indoor picnic whilst she was passed around for cuddles. She slept through the whole visit which made it very relaxing for me. She had her first cinema trip and again (luckily) slept through the whole of thing. Clearly Rio 2 wasn't that captivating. We've been out shopping and to the park with our new Chicco Urban pram and she sleeps beautifully in it. We also practised some alfresco breastfeeding at Priory Farm whilst watching, helplessly as Little E was a naughty monkey on the playship (that's another story...)
She is filling out her 0-3mth babygrows now and we've started dressing her in little outfits during the daytime. The weather has perked up so she has made good use of her cute French bonnet inherited from her big sister who's head was never small enough for it.
Sleep has been a tale of two halves - front end of the week she was sleeping 5hr shifts through the night after wearing herself out from all that colicky early evening crying. This was much to my joy (lot less joy from my engorged boobs) but the last few nights she has been struggling to sleep as her little nose is so stuffed up. I took her to sleep on my shoulder but as soon as I lay her down she begins to sound like a little piglet in a trough... So I am rather bleary eyes writing this after being awake from 3am.
Playing is becoming fun now. Lots more time on the play gym and she is a big fan of the bird toy dangling from get swing chair and stares at it mesmerised! We tried tummy time this week which resulted in wailing and general unhappiness so we'll give that a miss for another week.
