Ratbag baby

This bub likes to be difficult! He’s spent much of the past 18 hours in an incubator under lights due to jaundice, the ratbag. He’s fine, but the paediatrician wanted to treat him to ensure all stayed well. I’ve had him out plenty, for long feeds and sneaky cuddles (he’s a VERY cuddly bub!) and the good news is, he’s been quite happy in the incubator, stretched out like he’s on a sunbed or something! He’s a cruisey little man πŸ™‚

Had visits from the Batt family (who endured a false fire alarm and subsequent lockdown of the ward!) and and kids yesterday, which was lovely. I felt bad though, cos I know people don’t come to see me, they come to cuddle the baby, and they couldn’t yesterday! πŸ™‚ Hubby and kids also came a couple of times, all looking a bit weary – perhaps missing mum being there to enforce naps and bedtimes!

The staff are starting to ask when I’m thinking about going home, and while obviously some of that is dependent on bub’s test results today, regardless, I’d like to stay one more night I think – it’s nice to be just able to enjoy the baby and quiet time together without worrying about chores and big kids and all πŸ™‚ Might be a bit selfish of me, but I know it’s the last chance I’ll get!
