ROSA FLORENCE 4 WEEKS OLD



Well doesn't time fly when you are a baby?  4 weeks old already.


Rosa has had initial feeding problems but that is ok now ~ in fact now she has a voracious appetite but suffers from colic sometimes. That problem seems to be managed well with drops.

The main difficulty now is that she doesn't want to settle and wants to be cuddled all the time and poor mummy and daddy are very tired.  With her dad returning to work today after paternity leave I called in to see Selina and Rosa this afternoon.  Her Nanna Sue had already arrived and had taken Rosa for a walk in her pram.  Baby and Nanna arrived home a while later and Rose was fast asleep and by then so was Selina ~ so while Nanna did some ironing I kept rocking the pram gently and she slept like a top for a couple more hours, as by then we took it in turns to rock the pram.  

She looks quite content here doesn't she?


Let's take a closer look to make sure she's ok . . . 


That's my girl. . . . bless her little cotton socks . . . :)

On Wednesday afternoon I am taking her out for a walk in her pram to give her mum a rest.  Anyone care to join me?

  1. She is so pretty.....and being cuddled and rocked is only one of the many advantages of being a baby.
    Enjoy every second of it, Sweet Rosa!

    2. PS Love the term "pram"....
      We don't use that term here, and I love to hear it spoken or see it written.

    3. Hi Jackie :)
      It's an old Brit word, much older than Grandpa . . lol, short for "perambulator" which we abbreviate to "pram".
      Pop over and I'll speak it to you in my Brit accent . . lol
      I think younger people don't use the word as much, preferring "buggy" . . .:)

    4. We use the word "stroller"...
      Enjoy your time with your beautiful Grands!!

    5. Yes heard that word stroller very recently by my very good friend, Betsy . . :)

    6. A stroller is very different from a pram. A stroller is what used to be called a pushchair in Britain, I still call it that, I have one in my garage!

    7. Yes I forgot the word push chair . . . and thanks for the explanation of stroller . . . :)

  2. Hi Eddie....
    Has Selina tried a soother? They work wonders!
    Rosa looks very much like her Mom, I think!
    Perhaps too much pram jiggling, will make her less likely to settle....just sayin'....
    Swaddling works well for fussy settlers too....
    Ok...no charge for all the free unsolicited advice...
    What time do I need to be there for the walk?
    Cheers!
    Linda :o)

  5. She is adorable and looks quite content in her pram. You need to get an automatic cradle that gently rocks the cradle for 15 minutes after cranking it up. I had one of those when my children were babies and they loved it and so did I. And if I didn't live way over here across the pond, I would love to join you for a walk as well. lol
