Like a Bright New Morning

Well, another bad night sleep for Mummy M. Olivia was tossing and turning all night and I ended up feeding her at 3.30am.

At 6am she had the fullest wet nappy I have ever felt in my life. She had totally filled up the nappy and had soaked through to her vest, sheet growbag and through to the cot sheet. In the name of scientific exploration we weighed the nappy on the baby scales and it weighed 14oz - that is almost a pound!!!!!!! And that is excluding all the wee that went on her clothes and cot!!

On to feeding time...She took 4oz of the final 7oz bottle of electrolyte drink and then went totally postal, although that fact that she subsequently went back to sleep for 3 hours suggested that this might be more due to tiredness than anything else.

After her sleep I weighed her to find that she had lost another 3 ounces, bringing the total to 7oz lost since Monday.

She started back on milk with the 10am feed and has been a bit better about actually drinking it, although she is not quite back to her normal self. She has also started to poop properly again so hopefully she is now on the mend. It has been a difficult few days.


  1. Poor girl. I'm glad to hear she's feeling a bit better.

  2. Glad to hear that you're all doing better, especially the little one.
