Quite an achievement for me as I've not held a newborn since Luke was born. I've had major issues with holding babies since Luke was poorly- like it was disloyal to him to experience tube free cuddles with another baby. i can honestly say that I didn't have any cuddles with Luke before he was 15 months old where I wasn't anxious that he would stop breathing. My 4 nieces that were born after Luke I have politely declined cuddles and avoided picking them up as newborns, I think it's been 9 months + when I've held them. Anyway. today I saw a friend who i met whilst Luke was in SCBU, who had another baby (at 34 weeks) and he's been home 2 weeks. About 5lbs now, so a really tiny baby still and I managed to hold him for about 40 mins whilst he snoozed. So proud of myself.

Well done, I bet it felt amazing too. Hope you manage to have lots of newborn cuddles from now on as there's nothing quite like it!
