Nightwaves, chore and Christmas treat.

1. "It's good to have the radio for these night feeds," says Nick. "It makes you feel as if you're not the only people awake." We're listening to a New Year's Eve concert of modern folk music from Edinburgh on Radio 3 in an effort to keep Alec alert enough to feed. I never feel alone in the night -- Nick wakes up to record the details in his feed log, and spots for me as Alec latches on.

2. Although Nick has said I'm not to do any housework, I sneak downstairs and hang out the washing -- it's a task with a beginning and an end that I know I can do well, and I feel good about that.

3. I finally get my port and Stilton, although I have to have them posted into my mouth because a wakeful boy wants to sit on my knee.


  1. Congratulations to you all. I have enjoyed reading your posts up to your beautiful boy arriving. It has brought back some lovely memories and although my little boy is only 8 months it already feels like a lifetime ago. Your lovely thoughts have made me feel quite emotional all over again. Also if you have an iPhone I can highly recommend the total baby app for recording feeds. It took me months to remember how long ago we had last fed the baby. Look forward to hearing more lovely things about your gorgeous boy x

  2. I love reading 3BT, thrilled for you re the arrival of your baby boy. Enjoy it all - night feeds et al!

  3. #1 is my favorite Clare! Isn't your beautiful boy even more beautiful with each passing day!
