How do you do?!

Postby deboula » Mon Sep 14, 2009 3:04 pm

Hello!

I'm Deb & my daughter's Maddy (or Loula), who decided to see the world at 11 weeks premature!

So much for all the preparation - the birthplan... dreamily imagining the perfect labour on my Easter Sunday due-date & putting her to my breast straight away... the purchase of a TENS machine & our real nappies (my addiction had started by the 5th month, to the dismay of everyone I knew, who were all disgusted at even the thought of a cloth nappy!) etc...

January, week 28 came & so did she, 4 days of labour (that's another story!), 2 months in ICU with size 0 disposables which came up to her tiny armpits & the joy of a breast pump over 300 times until her feeding tube came out & booby feeds could start!

We disposed of disposables when she was about 7lbs & haven't looked back - we love nappies! She's 12lbs now & even lifts her legs up for me when we change naps! Oh what fun we have!!

So, that's us! Pleased to meet you all & to have found such a great site!

Oh thank you for such a lovely welcome all of you!
And so wonderful to have found others who've had similar experiences. I've coped ok on my own (well, with a bit of help from hubby... but he refuses to use proper nappies, saying they're too much hassel blah, blah man stuff, don't get me started on that...) but it's nice to know that there's support here if I need it.
Hooray! x
