It’s been an eye-opening two weeks, funny because a lot of the time Jacob kept his eyes closed!!!!
And everybody who said it would turn my world upside down was absolutely correct, life as we know it changed massively on August 14.
The biggest lesson I have learned though is to watch my son, his cues nearly always give a guide as to what he wants at that moment.
Oh and to not panic, those early days when they cry for no apparent reason can sometimes solved with more feeds, especially if they are trying to regain their birth weight as Jacob has been.
The Sunday night after we came home saw both of us have meltdowns, it’s only the next day we looked at things and realised he was just after another feed!
Hindsight is very important for new parents!
I’ve learned a lot about myself, especially if I relax and let my instinct take over I am actually quite good at taking care of him.
I have also learned that there is another level above love, I love Pam and would do anything for her but Jacob….just looking at him sleep can make me feel WOW
To any dads to be, some advice:
