Been meaning to do this for ages, and have been urged by others to do so. Here goes.
I am a new(ish) Mum to LittleM aged 7 1/2 months. We have had quite an experience so far as parents and I hope that this Blog may help me make sense of it a little as well as providing a little diversion, hopefully being of interest to others, and helping me re-aquaint myself with that brain thats in there somewhere I trust... (knocks on head- nope, no answer yet 8¬P)
As we do not know each other from Adam, a brief bit of context. LittleM was discharged from hospital on Monday having spent 9 days in the fantastic care of our local children's ward. This was the 7th stay for her in hospital but that fact misleads. She is a very happy, smiley, chirpy baby... but also one with several smallish non- serious health issues that contribute to make a more small/medium size issue! Last week we were told by her Consultant that we may have to consider surgery/ top-to toe investigations, use of a feeding tube etc etc. Today, LittleM sat for the first time (just about) unaided, ate 100 times more solids than she has ever done and has sunk 3 bottles at an unprecedented rate. No tube needed here.
This is the topsy-turvy, up and down life that we lead with LittleM while she confounds those treating her and re-writes those awful parenting books.
