baby : 12 weeks

posted on: Friday, March 30, 2012

Someone is becoming super, super cuddly.

Cuddly, and even more chatty. This wee lady is quite the little chatterbox given half the chance. She is still very polite though and tends to wait until she's been spoken to before squeaking ;)

I've heard that 12 weeks usually means a growth spurt is in order and it cannot be denied that she's been chowing down her milk and sleeping more than usual. I find it helpful to know what to expect. Then, when her behaviour suddenly changes I don't go into a tiny panic wondering what could be wrong (as you do).

If you're a new mama do you like to read guides or do you prefer to take things as they come? I'd love to hear!

  3. Aw sweet Rose, you are getting super cuddly. Big love to you little lady :)

    I have to admit I do love a good parenting/infant developmental/new mama book - and have quite a few piled up on my bedside table- including Wonder Weeks. I'm enjoying WW as I find it reassuring to understand that 'fussiness' is often related to learning new skills and tricks - and I think that helps you to relax and be more patient with your little one, who is just trying desperately to come to grips with the big new world. It's also great that they stress that all babies are different and will learn at different paces with different preferences.

    Welcome to the World of Smooth Transitions, Rose :)

  6. Hi. She is just gorgeous. My little lady is only a few weeks older than your little girl, so I can relate to your updates :-)

    I am a 'take it as it comes' mumma. I figure if she feeds well, settles ok, sleeps, and poos...then things must be alright. Every child is so different, so I think the guides can tend to make people feel inadequate and deflate their confidence as a parent. Just my take on the world, not everyone will agree I'm sure!
