Feeding Frenzy! Or lack of...




Oscar's night sleeping/feeding patterns are finally settling down to something reasonable; last night I gave him a feed at 9PM and he slept through till 7PM. This is great news because it means his stomach is getting big enough to retain milk long enough to stave of the hunger pangs during the night, (providing nothing else wakes him up like soaking his nappy or the loft getting really cold thanks to the Siberian winter wind.) This is great for two reasons; it means we get a decent nights sleep, and it also means we don't feel so bad about getting the parents round to babysit when we go out on the town ;-). The next stage for Oscar is to be eating more and more solid foods (baby food and mashed up versions of our food, e.g. Fish, Peas and Mash) going onto finger foods and the like. However, he seems more interested in tasting said food, then letting it all dribble out of his mouth, very entertaining...

Friday night I was left holding the babies again while my misses went out on the town leaving me to catch up on Heroes and Lost, this is a scandal because I've only been out once this year myself! Although she did end up at a dodgy club/pub in Stockport so I guess that is it's own punishment ;-). She also had the mother of all hangovers, her gastritis was so bad that she had to borrow one of my omaperazole tablets, now there's a liberty...
