Over the school Christmas holidays I have struggled with this as Molly obviously needs me to be awake when she is. I have found it difficult to look after both Molly and Elsie. Not because either are particularly difficult, but the sleep deprivation is making me so tired and

We have moved on to using our cloth nappies full time now. We have a mix of bumGenius and Baba and Boo aswell as Ittis for during the day and a slection of motherease onelife nappies and wraps for night time. We have been very blessed to have met some lovely people online who are also loving cloth nappies who have lent us various cloth nappies to trial. This has been amazing as we have been able to see which nappies work for Elsie and give the best fit without wasting money.
Our favourite purchase this month has been our Close Carrier. Its perfect for carrying Elsie in around the house whilst I am trying to do a few chores.
Its easy to slip her in to and out of particularly at this age. I am not sure how easy it would be to carry her when she is heavier though.
We are still under the care of the pediatrics at our local hospital. Elsie is much better in colour and appearance but her blood tests are still coming back a little too high. You never get used to consultants trying to literally squeeze every last drop of blood out of your baby's heel. Several times this month they have ended up inserting a needle into the back of her hand and its heartbreaking hearing her cry. The sugar solution they give her which is meant to make her quite drowsy from the sugar rush is clearly not enough. On the whole though, we are very blessed. We know Elsie is better and expect to be discharged from the hopsital care in the next few weeks.
