Day 2: Mankind’s greatest ever invention revealed


It is an oft told story that the first night back home from hospital with a newborn can be something of a reality check – and in my case, when at 4 am a tiny tsunami of noise and poo was exploding in front of me this was certainly true. 

Not only are there now no midwives around to help/criticise/dose out medieval torture (again, I am sure I will come back to our unhappy experience in hospital at a later date), but in the middle of the night when the baby is going purple from screaming in your face as you fumble with the marmite-coated poppers of a tiny white baby grow, the crushing reality of the fact that nothing will ever be the same again really hits home like a ton of breeze blocks. 

However, this fatherhood lark has so far taught me one very important lesson… Baby wipes truly are one of mankind’s greatest ever inventions!

  1. Baby blues. There’s no avoiding it. We spent four nights in hospital, again a tale for another day, and the first night back was a shocker! Hope you’re all settling in now and getting used to each other. I’m looking forward to following your blog.
