Yea, i haven't updated here either but my second was born in November. Had a home birth which was incredible and I would totally recommend it. When my wife first touted it I was very nervous, as there were some complications with our first, and, you know, not the thought of not being in a hospital freaked me out. When the day came though it was great. Was 12 days late so had pretty much given up on it happening (1st was induced) so got the surprise element too which was nice. My wife was so much more relaxed it was unreal (and i was too after the initial 'oh shit it's happening here!). Spent a lot of the time downstairs (had some Good night Sweetheart on ) before going up for the main event. Listened to some Kate Bush (2nd record my hand fell on - 1st was Posthuman by JK Flesh which probably wouldn't have worked as well) and out he came on our bed (my side - mess everywhere but who cares!) AS i said, was just brilliant. There's a great midwife team in birmingham to support it so check them out if you live here....and elsewhere i'd encourage you to find out.
Been pretty horrific since though - he generally seems to wake up when our 2 1/2 yr old goes to bed then doesn't settle for evenings/nights. Had a few other issues but that's for another time and day. Eldest loves him though which is great and lovely to see - but he has played up more also although that seems to have settled down a bit now...maybe!
tl;dr - baby was born at home, was an amazing experence, and now i am more tired than ever before!
Lidl nappies are pretty good, and asda are great. we tried re-usable but it was too much. Didn't help that everytime wee seemed to escape so a nappy change turned into a full change but yea, we gave up too soon.
