Start … Just like everyone else. Marriage, pregnancy, childbirth. And here he is, a tiny, red-faced bundle, lying next to me in some corridor … It specifically shakes me, they say, this is normal. The child is near, he is already sleeping … What chamber do you want? Joint of course!
A day later, the child is already with me in the ward … Attempts to give a breast … it hurts … You will be called Yaroslav, you bit out like your mother, and she sleeps well.
Sleeps, sleeps, sleeps …. 3, 4 hours, is he ever hungry? The doctor says to wake up every 3.5 hours.
Baby month. I wake every 3.5 hours, I feed, the rest of the time is asleep.
Two months old, wake up Asleep He began to eat faster, at first he sucked for half an hour, and now 10 minutes and that’s it.
Baby 3 months, healthy, but weight gain is zero! How so, because I feed on demand? Yes, once in 3 hours, at night a break of 6 hours, he does not wake up.
It was only here that I sensed something was wrong, attended to searching for information and found out that birth stress can send a child into a long sleep, and instead of enjoying the ideal baby, I had to help him.
Decision only one thing: mom’s love. It is love, and the maximum tactile contact. Hang it in a sling, put it on the bed. Hugging, ironing.
Tactile contact, mother’s warmth, mother’s voice, the sound of her heartbeat will help the baby to feel that the world, huge, bright, deafening and quiet, was still worth being born into it.
Very soon, my beloved son began to wake up more often himself, to please her with his smile. And the lactation, almost extinct, we restored.
Now I know that the little sonya should have been carried more immediately after birth, put on the bed with him. Then he would not have reached exhaustion, being in a long sleep.
