My sister in law told me of her time with her newborn boy where between 5pm and 7pm every night he was unsettled. The week my newborn moved from being a two week old to a three week old, each time I sat down for dinner she had been unsettled or had woken up. One evening I fed her at 6pm and had my dinner at 7pm but yet by 8.30pm she had needed a top up feed, had hiccups, needed a few nappy changes and was stirring in her basket. So lesson to learn for all mummies - plan to have your dinner early or much later if you would like to eat interruption free or more importantly eat your dinner without having to reheat it 3 times. 6pm is the more healthy option but whatever works for you. Dinner time won't be the same for a while!
