Good news for Emily

Sue had her baby class today (I think it's technically called post-natal class) and she found out a whole ream of information regarding Em.

For the last couple of weeks, Emily has favoured sucking any number of fingers, and sometimes her whole fist, as opposed to her dummy. This is apparently a development milestone (check that!) and she's not necessarily hungry, which I would assume she is. Why else would you stuff your gob?

On a funny note, the last couple of days have been quite nice and sunny and Sue was told she really should lather Emily up with baby sunscreen. You'd assume that spring weather wouldn't necessitate sunscreen, but there you have it.

There was also a report in the Metro yesterday saying that breastfed babies are more intelligent. The health visitor today told Sue that the effects of breast feeding can still be seen in 70 year olds, so obviously starting a baby off on the right foot is only a good thing.

All in all, it looks like we're giving Emily a decent start to life. We're going to up her baths now that the warm weather is upon us and hopefully get her to baby aquatics as well. I don't want her terrified of the water like I was as a wee nipper.
