Introducing Baby Esmai

Baby Esmai was born on Friday the 13th. Weighing 6lbs 3ozs. She is perfect!!!

I was induced 2 days later than planned as the labour ward was too busy. It took 2 attempts to work, I went in at 7:30am and had my waters broke at 9pm, by 10:30pm she was here. She was so quick my partner almost missed it! He had gone home to put my son to bed after being told he had hours to spare only to get a phone call saying I was 7cms and had already started pushing, which I got told off for. He made it to the hospital with 10minutes to spare. The midwife wasn’t ready and didn’t even have gloves on , so she was born with no one to catch her, was very lucky because if I had been a foot further down the bed she would of landed on the floor.

We are having problems breastfeeding mainly as she seems very lazy (wont latch)  and more content to have formula so I’m not sure how long we will keep trying. I brought loads of cloth nappies, which are so cute but she’s too small to wear them at the moment, but hopefully won’t be for too long!
