Welcome to the world little Mitchell










Well, baby Mitchell is almost 3 weeks old already. I do apologise for not posting earlier but I knd of had my hands full! Mitchell Meiring was born on 29 July 2009 at 15:39 weighing 3.7kg (about 8 pounds) and 49cm tall. He is a bit colicky so takes up quite a bit of time hence no updates. I will do a birth and hospital experience post soon(ish) but in the meantime here are some pics. We are going to the chiropractor to try and do something about the colic this afternoon. Hopefully it will help, can't stand to see the little face all scrunched up in pain:(

  4. A very sweet chap! Are you breastfeeding? If so try taking mag phos yourself(homeopathic stuff) and also crush a half tab and mix with cooled boiled water in a teaspoon and give to him before feeds.
    Another great tip is putting one of those happy hugger heat up things on his tummy after a feed. Obviously not too hot. The slight weight of it and the warmth is very soothing.
