This photo tickles me everytime I come across it. O was three days old and he had finally come to join me on the maternity ward from SCBU. Without the feeding tube which was a surprise to me! Of course in true newborn fashion he needed changing pretty quickly and it was only then did I realise that I hadn’t taken into account just how dinky he was!
Being only 5lb 3oz born he REALLY needed the size 0 ‘micro nappies’. All I had was the size 1 newborns. When pulled up to close some of the gaps around his legs it went right up to under his armpits! Even the midwife had a giggle and got some sent over from SCBU to tide me over until I could get some brought to me.
The silly thing is, he wasn’t my first to need the micro nappies and he was a month early, so I have no idea why I didn’t even think he would be so small!
