Baby Girl’s dad went back to work today following his two weeks’ paternity leave. We’re on our own.
I was very nervous yesterday at the thought of this. Partly because there are times when she simply won’t settle for me & her dad takes her & she settles straight away. We think perhaps I smell of milk, which makes her think she’s hungry when she’s not. Also, she loves to be held & often just won’t be put down. Which when you’re on your own makes even going to the bathroom tricky!
But we’re 4 hours in & so far both surviving. I’ve even managed to have a quick bowl of cereal thanks to the amazing vibrating bouncy chair we have. We finally got batteries for it yesterday & thank god because I’ve tried her in it after her feed & she’s been happy as Larry (minus a small hiccup session). It’s a magic chair! Every new parent must have one.
