looking for first-time experiences with your baby
I'm writing for PP magazine, a lovely (and hopefully very useful!) feature on new mums' experiences of their first time doing things with their newborn/very young baby.
I'd LOVE to hear from anyone with your anecdote on a particular "first" - examples I'll probably include in the piece are:
FIRST TRIP TO THE SUPERMARKET
FIRST RIDE ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT (ARGH!)
FIRST NIGHT OUT WITHOUT BABY
FIRST TIME LOTS OF PEOPLE COME TO VISIT
FIRST NIGHT AWAY WITH BABY (EG AT A HOTEL OR PARENTS)
Please do get in touch with your anecdotes, I'd love to hear them and include them in the piece!Either reply to this thread or email me direct - email@example.com
<!--EndFragment-->Thanks - and hope to hear from you!
first night i went out with out jack, now two he was ment to spend the night with my mum but i burst into tears the minute i saw his empty cot and went to collect him at 2am, needless to say lolas yet to be babysat!
jacks first stay away was at 5mnths at my in laws, we all went for his aunts 18th, he slept like and angel thanks to grobag, same nightlight comforter. music and starprojector! good routine and familiar sleep cues have made all stays away pretty easy!
I was very nervous about bathing Harry for the first time, such a delicate little thing then - my mum wanted to do his first bath but thought it should be me and my husband. I shouldn't have been worried it wasnt too difficult I used a bath support to help hold him and he loved it, kicking his little legs.
I stayed away with Harry for the first time in a Hotel in Brighton with my sister and nephew, he was great and slept better there than he had done anywhere else he was 5 months old. Again he had his gro bag on which would have been as at home - Brilliant things gro bags. I didnt have to worry about bottles or sterilisers as I was BF him and hadnt started weaning at that point. This is where BF is a real bonus, if you are travelling it is great nothing to take with you really. He also giggled for the first time while there so I will never forget it. (He was slow on the laughing front - a very serious baby, now he is a very energetic, funny toddler).
Can't really remember any of the above,but I do remember very clearly when we first brought our First son home,I put him in the pram in the lounge,and thought what the hell do I do now!!!!
Was actually going to walk the dogs then thought,oh no,I can't I'll have to wait til my partner gets in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
rachel i felt like that, both times, we brought jack home and just stared at him, darent put the tv on incase he woke, we discovered in minutes that he missed the noise and lights of scbu, still hasnt changed!
and with lola we brought her home and mum was bringing jack up in an hour and i felt lost, just sat there, no idea what to do! so i came on here to read all my congratulations messages!!!
