From my diary of young mother

It is lines from my diary.

“Maxims “was born“

for the tenth day as put me in hospital. Why “was born“ in quotes? Because was Caesarian. Officially I transferred it 5 days. Actually I do not know how many. In every sense the child was long-awaited...

... In hospital the Maxim the first days brought to me only for a couple of hours several times a day. When he shouted, I did not know what to do. Now the most effective means in such cases - a tit! But then I had no milk. I represent how it is difficult for those mothers who feeds with artificial mixes...

... Now it in a bed. I slightly - slightly raised it, put a small pillow under a back. It amuses it so far. The same means not every time works. The only universal remedy, I will repeat, is a tit. But I cannot leave it with Maxim, and itself, let us assume, to go to stroke or tie...

... When I put it on a bed and I lay down itself nearby, Maxim looks at a breast and the mouth is already ready to eat it...

... Near “tit“ we can also long lie, but not so much we suck it as we play about: Maxim takes a nipple in a mouth and right there lets out or few times will give smacking kiss - and all. But it is impossible to take away a breast at such moments, Maxim will be indignant...

... This afternoon Maxim was capricious, I did not know any more that with him to do: is does not want, does not want to play, eyes are closed, but does not want to sleep. I was already angry. Left its one for some time, Maxim began to roar, only then we took a tit and fell asleep, and both...

... Our approximate daily routine for today: in 9 - 10 rise, slightly - slightly we lie, we get over on a table, we wash (we clean Q-tips ears, a nose, we wipe with damp cotton wool a face), we do massage (we iron a tummy, handles, legs, a back), we lie on a tummy, we do exercises (legs, hands), we put on (a rag diaper, a shirt, a romper suit), we lay down to eat, we sleep (1 - 3 h), eat, change clothes, play, walk (on the house), are engaged (exercises by legs, handles), stir, laugh, roar, change clothes (all this in any order), we can fall asleep again (1 - 3 h) we go on the street for a walk, we come home, we eat, we play, we lie, we walk, we stir, we roar, we change clothes (it the same in any order), in 9 - 10 of h we wash, go to bed with a tit...

... Maksimka, having eaten and if does not want to sleep, lying nearby, can finger kruzhavchik of a mother`s dressing gown or a button of a jacket. It does it with concentration...

... Today got up late - at ten o`clock. Maksimka slept, I drew near him, and he even blindly felt a tit. With an open mouth began to look for a tit (it in such cases reminds me a chickabiddy - as they in a nest with open klyuvika ask to eat, twitching, Maksimka at the same time the same mutters: “And - and - and... Ý - ý - aa...“)...

... And now as we ate. Maksimka sucks, playing about (lets out a tit from a mouth and again takes, lets out etc. again) through some time of an eye lifts on me and laughs loudly. If I do not look at it, he “eykat“ and again smiles or laughs loudly. Here so, playing about, we devastated both tits, and to fall asleep did not fall asleep though eyes and want to sleep...

... If you are with Maksimka nearby when he eats or with concentration fingers a toy, he periodically glances at you and smiles. “Aha, you here, it is good, here and do not leave anywhere“. Manages to smile even with a tit in a mouth. When the long-awaited father comes from work, we smile to him too and we pretend that we hesitate - we will smile and turn away, hide for mother. And again we turn to the father, again to him we smile and hide...

... Amusing case: we ate a tit. Did not want to sleep. I lay on a back. Put Maksimka to itself the person sideways. He saw a tit.“ Ý - ý - e,“ - palms relied on me and began to suck a tit. Pochmokayet, will come off, will look on the parties, poulybatsya, “a kiss again - a kiss“. And all this sitting...

... Maksimka has dinner buckwheat cereal and fruit puree, were caught up by a tit...

... We go to bed on a big bed. Maksimka ceases to sob, only when the tit appears at him in a mouth. We suck about half an hour.“ We move“ to the bed. In Maksimk`s bed itself closes eyes, does not complain. But mother “on everyone the firefighter“ a little bit (minutes ten) swings him... Slightly, slightly - slightly...

... If mother when Maksimka wakes up at night, in a normal state (i.e. not really wants to sleep), then she can try to rock to sleep him. But it is simpler - to give a tit, so Maksimka falls asleep quicker and to mother it is simpler (you lie, it is possible even to fall asleep, but you do not sit and you swing a bed)...

... So it is pleasant to me when Maksimka lies nearby and sucks a tit. Even if plays about or laughs. Or stirs. Or sleeps, then you examine it, you smooth volosik on the head, tiny fingers. Lukewarm... Lies nearby. And if plays about, so funny smiles with a tit in a mouth. Either mutters something, or fingers a dressing gown, or pulls for a lip, or for a nose, tries to reach hair, without coming off a tit. So there is a wish that it proceeded longer. But we grow, we mature. Already how many - seconds we can stay that standing, the foot completely costs...

... We can burst out laughing though over what. Over the same we can then and begin to roar. Today offered Maksimke tityu. He looked at it and burst out laughing. Than it made laugh him...

... We fall asleep without tita in the afternoon. With the aunt for the night. And how many times we will wake up at night and in the morning. But at any opportunity we pull mother for a dressing gown and we look: where there tit, but whether not to have a bite?...

P. S. The breast for my child was everything: food, dream, tranquility, rescue from any troubles. Maksimka was never refused. Therefore having sated with it much, in a year we it is easy and without hysterics refused it.
