Much excitement here now. My niece is in early stages of labour, a few days early. After the most appauling 2 years she has had at last some good news.

Exciting news, James. ;D  Hope all goes well.  My own niece-in-law has just had a second baby girl naturally following a caesar for the first one.  We are so relieved that it went well this time. ::)

Great news James  ;D
Now that my wee one's a whole 11 days old, the only advice I can give you to give her is SLEEP WHEN THE BABY SLEEPS !!! It's 4 years since my last baby and you forget/block out what sleep deprivation does to you !  :o  :o   :o

Linzi, my niece,  gave birth to a wee girl 10 minutes ago. Both are doing well and my sister is high as a kite(first grand child). When she phoned to tell me the baby was just seconds old so there was no weight as yet but they are calling her Nheive (no idea on the spelling). I am a great Uncle now and almost as high as my sister!!!

Thanks evryone for their kind wishes. Niamh was 7lb 14 ounces and has been good as gold. She still has not fed from her mum so as soon as she starts that she will be just perfect. Linzi is doing well but obvioulsy anxious that she hasn't fed yet.

Congratulations, Unc James, and to the young mum of course! Hope the new girl has started feeding alright and your niece didn't get worked on to use the bottle instead (happened to me but that was so long ago now - feels like yesterday)! All the best from us! :&>

I agree - 38 years ago my daughter was taken to the nursery when she was born and they forgot to bring her back to feed - someone made a mistake and gave her a bottle.  But when I asked for her they brought her back and she started feeding fine.

Well the latest news from my niece is that Niamh took a very small drink an hour ago (from her mother and not the bottle) but didn't really know what to do and couldn't be bothered finding out - all she wanted to do was get back to sleep. What a wee madam she is.

my first born was the same. some babies are just tired I think, can't blame them! I was worried for years that she didn't drink enough and now she eats for 2 ! Hope Niamh going to be fine tomorrow. :&>

She is now bottle feeding. Not drinking huge amounts but at least she is now drinking. I think they should get out of the hospital later today.
