Checking heartbeats or ‘boom-booms’ in our house is something that happens multiple times a day. It’s been a part of Amelia’s life since she was 8 days old and first diagnosed with SVT. I expected, and even hoped for the gorgeous little mummy/baby role play as she grew into a toddler. I love to watch her sing the nigh-nigh song to her dolls, to pop them into their highchair and feed them while chatting to them and asking if the lovingly mixed food on the end of the spoon is ‘nummy?’ I love to watch her tuck her babies into bed, climb into the rocker to cuddle and read to them, or walk them around the house in their prams, however it makes me giggle to see her role play extend to checking her own ‘baby’s boom-boom’. Followed up by a check of her own.
