That’s right, folks, after a few tricky days the girls are over their moody madness and are back to being reliable milky firehoses.
After two days of engorgement I had two days of really quite worryingly low supply. Thankfully, by yesterday things seemed to have evened themselves out. Hugo’s actually getting the right amount of milk now – not so much gagging and choking and no more sucking an empty-sock boob. It’s all good!
The best part is that he is back to sleeping through again. I can’t believe how lightly we got off with this. I won’t say he’s been a great sleeper because until this point he’s really been a pretty shoddy sleeper. He started out as a 20-minute cat napper, which really wasn’t anything to boast about.
But to go from waking 6-8 (or more) times per night to sleeping through in the space of a week, well, that’s impressive.
Hunter’s journey to sleeping through was way more bumpy. She started out as a not-great sleeper and went downhill from there. By the time she got to seven months, no one was getting any sleep and we’d exhausted every other suggestion we’d come across, so we resorted to CIO.
It worked, but it was horrible and I am very glad Hugo’s decided to do us all a favour and sleep through without that nasty nudge.
