As you can tell, Louisette is so brilliant she likes to read over her dad’s shoulder.
Louisette’s feeding is changing: she’ll only breastfeed for about ten minutes (as opposed to up to 40 minutes pre-travel) and she’s having a bit more than half her food from formula – which does make things easier for me.
I’m prepping a “travelling with baby” blog for after I get back, which will have everything I’ve learnt from all this travel. In the meantime, here are two pictures of her getting burped (in the first, she’s just caught sight of herself in the hotel mirror).
The best thing about travelling with a baby is you always have a great source of entertainment.
Two day ago Louisette really impressed us: She initiated a game of peek-a-boo with her Dad. Not only did she pick the parent who plays peek-a-boo with her most often, but she demonstrated the initiative and self-awareness to know that another person wouldn’t see her face if she turned her head to hide in the side of her baby bag. Wow.
And here’s another breastfeeding photo – perched on a dusty shelf just outside the Forbidden City, with passers-by walking up and taking photos.
And here’s a pretty sunset from our hotel window, just because.
