So cue a barrage of FTM Qs!
Our son is now 24 days old and I have found myself with some questions...
How do I know whether our son is hungry - For example, if he cries on an evening, I offer him a dummy how do I know if he wants his dummy or is hungry. I would hate to think he is chomping away on his dummy when he is actually hungry.
Our son is mixed feeding (soon moving to just formula) - how many wet/dirty nappies should we expect - he seems to constantly pee and we get 1/2 dirty nappies a day.
How would we know if our son is constipated? He seems to really grunt when he goes to the toilet and it seems to come out with a lot of force.
How long does it take for his tummy button to be healed completely?
Why does he seem to take various amounts through the day - for example, at night he takes approx 4.5oz and in the day takes 3oz.
Should we wake him if he goes over 4 hours without a feed? In the day he seems to feed 3 hourly but for exmaple last night, he fed at 7.30 and when I woke at 12.30 he hadnt woke for a feed so I roused him and fed him and he took nearly all 5oz.
When would you start looking to introduce a routine for our son? We have started with feed, bath and then into his moses approx 7.30 each night.
Sorry if the questions seem silly!
