Andy wants tod the winding after each feed and has already agreed to do nappies so that he doesn't feel left out! Shocked I think I'm very lucky Laughing

My friend bf her little girl for the first year, I do remember her wincing in pain for the first few weeks though and she said maybe I should try using the nipple cream before the baby is even here to help get them ready - does anyone else think that this is worth trying?

leanne im sure it cant do any harm, if you are using a lanolin cream it will probably give them a protective layer so i would try it. i read that in the past people were told to 'toughen' their nipples with toothbrushes before having a baby Shocked wouldnt go for that...

we are doing shifts when elijah is not sleeping so john will stay up til 3 or 4am then i will get up, but sadly i still have to wake up to feed him and john brings him through - i think after a day john felt so sorry for me he was happy to do the housework and nappies and things so you might still be in luck Smile

Laughing @ lovely nipples, im not even sure what lovely looking nipples look like...the midwives have no fear of helping, be warned they will just grab your boob and you baby and smoosh them together Shocked i think my midwife gave me that dvd, they play it at the antenatal clinic too - lots of very cheery people being wholesome and breastfeedy Very Happy


maybe he'll come around then. he's gonna be off for a month so it's not like he's got the excuse of work to go to for the first wee bit!

i didn't know what lovely nipples were either til i saw theirs, i think they were stunt nipples Laughing the video we got was australian, quite funny and old looking.

sounds like i missed out, i should have held him in to see that class Shocked maybe they were specialist nipple models. the nappies arent really that bad its just the screaming that is a bit trying at 3am - you would think we were pulling his legs off not giving him a nice comfy clean nappy!

Toothbrushes Shocked I won't be trying that Laughing

Yeah I brought some Lanolin cream today, Boots have it on special at the moment for 7.49 instead of 9.99 if anyone needs any Very Happy

Did you buy formula just in case? It's just occured to me that I haven't brought any Shocked We've got plenty of bottles and an electric steriliser but no formula milk.

Laughing maybe but I've been the same. I think if I have formula milk in the cupboard and I end up feeling really stressed I'd be tempted to just make up a bottle, so its probably better for me not to have it at hand Very Happy

i only bought it cos a friend who had breastfed last year recommended it - i wasnt really sure. i have a couple of ready made cartons of aptimil and a couple of hipp organic (just the little ones) and we had a couple of bottles and some milton for expressing later anyway.

i will say that at 2am when you are really on your last straw and stressed out with a screaming baby, the thought that i could just put him down, go and get a bottle and settle him was really reassuring!

i havent done it, but there is definitely something in knowing that there is an option close at hand, and that i am *choosing* to carry on because thats what i want for my baby Smile i know what you mean about temptation, but i would say its more a reassurance for me Smile
