Rolly-polly

There was a time when we worried that she wasn't gaining enough weight. It seemed that everything she drank (and sometimes more) ended up being thrown right back up.  Everyone had an opinion. Too much milk. Too little milk. Wrong feeding position. I should drink more of x and less of y. Eat this but definitely not that. Mostly we just ignored all the advice and got on with being us. Eating, sleeping, playing and in amongst it all plenty of posseting with frequent clothes changes for us all.  And you know what? She's doing alright. Right now she's our rolly-polly dick-sie Maedchen.  There's a small part of me that would like to send these photos to all the well-meaning do-gooders who suggested I/she/we were doing something wrong.

Perhaps I just have.

Loving the shots!! Really hope to meet little E in person one day! :) And don´t listen to people trying to tell you what is right for your baby - isn´t it true what they say that a mom knows best what is right / wrong? and it seems you have proven that!!! :)

Oh Clare! Emilia is adorable. I am so glad you're trusting your intuition. I found this so hard the first time around when everyone proffered advice. J x
