As one can imagine, I am finding the physical limitations imposed by disability difficult with regard to parental interactions. I would love to hold and cuddle Ori in a hands-on fashion but instead we are maximising the time spent skin to skin.
It does feel like he is relaxed when we are together and enjoys the vibrations when I hum. We just spent an hour together whilst he took his antibiotics and he was calm and angelic.
This does seem to be a good use for my comfortable soft belly.
