    yay i am first.
    cyn- do not worry what your health nurs said, jenno is growing he is bigger then Charlotte over a week ago she was 4.830 so i think she should be about 5kgs now, as long as he is putting on weight there should be nothing wrong with you milk. Don't you hate it when people tell you things are wrong when they are not, my mum and step mum tell me when charlotte is upset at the end of night that i should top her up with formula, i really hate it when they say this as i had no milk for Madison so she was bottle fed and i really want to b/f charlotte for as long as i can. I wish i was a skinny minnie, i am about a size 16 still more weight to lose.

    Fee Charlotte has been doing those crys alot lately, so i have gone back to pumping after feeds to give her at the end of the day, though she is begining to sleep about 7 hours straight every night, yay. Where did you get your wraps from, as we are going to QLD soon i want to buy soem for Charlotte.

    Dee- glad to see you still around, what are prefolds?

    Kel- with your baby beehinds do you need a cover for them or do you just leave them as be.

    On thursday i am getting charlotte's feet and hands sculpted, I did with Madison and they turned out to well.

    hello all - welcome to the group mads.
    boisey - i have booked to see an osteopath on thursday. he is going to give Zac and i an assessment to see whats happening. DH isnt sure about it but i told him i am now willing to try anything.
    fee - still waiting to find out. i missed the call from them and they left message to say they will call me when they are back this week. he is also booked in next week to have his 3 month check.
    khm - dont the hands and feet sculpturs look cute - i had zacs done at 15 days and they sit on the wall.
    we have zac booked into the DRs tomorrow to try and get this reflux sorted out as it keeps waking him up.

    Hi Chantal!~
    Just to let you know that DH was very unsure about taking Jensen to an osteo too in the beginning...but now he is amazed at the results! In all honesty we walk into his clinic with a very distressed, sleep deprived and screaming little boy...we walked out with a baby that started smiling and gooing and garring at me and most importantly SLEPT!!! The first night we got 5 hours straight compared to 1 hour which was what I used to get Wooo Hoooo!
    Anyway I hope it all works out for you and little Zac!

    Welcome Mads!!!
    Jensen was born on 27 July and sounds alot like Freya!! Very alert, strong willed and determined little kids...god help us..lol!!

    We went to the clinic yesterday for Cooper's 12 week check up. I was sitting in the waiting room and a lady there was saying how cute Cooper was and that he should be in a Huggies commercial! I told Mark and he said maybe we should consider it?!

    Anyway Cooper's stats are now:

    Weight: 6.49 kgs (6490 g) (14.3 lbs)
    Length: 62 cm
    Head: 41 cm

    So all is well.

    Cooper does so many weird things lately – he changes every day! I can never figure him out. And I just wish he would sleep through again. Every night when we put him to bed now he grizzles. I have to go in and pat/shush him a few times. He never used to do this – now he does it every night after his last feed.

    Last night was weird. I fed him at 5.00 pm and he was fussing about a bit at the feed. But when I offered my boob without the nipple shield he went on straight away! Very strange. Then he did not sleep the best. Woke up at 12.45 am (8 hours between feeds – I guess it's okay). Then he woke at 4.00 am. I just went in and patted him for a couple of minutes. Also he had kicked off his blankets. Then he woke at 5.00 am. I thought I'd fed him then. He only had 5 minutes. Weird. Then I thought I'd wrap him and he slept until 7.00 am where I did a 10 minute feed. Also I used the shield again and he was fine with it.

    I really am wondering if he's teething. Yesterday while waiting for the clinic appointment he had my finger in his mouth and he was biting down sooo hard it almost hurt me!

    Deejoy17 – Sorry to hear about your infection. I hope it goes away soon.

    kmh – I was given some muslin wraps but they are just Bubba Blue brand and can be bought from Target.

    Mads – Welcome to the group! Cooper is a Cancer bub. I looked it up on the Net and it says "they love to be needed"! I think that sounds like Cooper! And they are moody.

    Freya is adorable – just checked our your website.

    chantal25 – Good luck with all your appointments for Zac. I hope they help.

    Boisey – How's Jensen today?

    baiza – So you're starting up a feed/hand sculpting business... Sounds cool. I hope it works out for you!

    Hi girls

    What has happened to my baby? Last night he would not settle when it was his bedtime and it took me an hour to settle him and I couldn't even leave the room I had to sit next to the cot and rub his tummy in circles before he would even look a little sleepy. Then he woke at 12.45 and i had to feed him (usually it is about 3 or 4am) and then again at5.30 and again at 9am so we had a weird night last night. I wonder if he had a belly ache at bedtime.

    Fee I too would love to put Dylan in photos or ads as I think he is very cute too but he has a birthmark on his forehead which the ob said will fade it is called a Stork bite so I would hate for him to be rejected for that reason so I don't think I will bother but you should definitely give it a go.

    Baiza That sounds like a great business to go into I have been thinking about what I can do that involves babies/children for a job/business so I don't have to go back to my corporate job. I was thinking of studying to be a doula.

    Chantal and Boisey I have been thinking of taking Dylan to an osteopath for his flat patch on his head a friend recommended it to me.

    KMH Oooh I might get the hands/feet sculpted too sounds gorgeous. I bought my muslin wraps at myer, they also have them at Baby Bunting, Target, etc.

    Welcome Mads My baby boy Dylan is a Cancer like me but I haven't seen any real cancer characterisitcs from him so far will have to observe more.

    Baby boy crying see you all later.

    hi all
    what a great day in melb, i love it when it is hot, i got sunburnt today.
    i think there is something happining to our babies, Charlotte has been taking awhile to get to sleep, lately i have to cuddle her to sleep and normally she will sleep from 7:30pm to 2-2:30am but last night it was 8;30 to 12, she woke up at 7 this morning so happy, talking and smilling so cute.

    cassie- i would love to become a doula or a midwife, i am going to look at it later on when Charlotte is a bit older.

    Fee- i have looked into modling for children it can be expencive and they might not even get a job out of it, when Madison was younger the girls at pixi photos gave me info on it as they loved taking photos of Madison and they thought she would do really well.

    Baizar- good luck with the new adventure, start of at the markets i am getiing it done through twinkle toes. Have you got there price list?

    Mads- welcome.

    i had to have an afternoon sleep today i was so tired so i put Charlotte in with me i thought i would try to see how she would go not be wrapped, but she didn't go to sleep as soon as i wrapped her she was asleep, she is still sleeping 2 hours later.

    Hi guys,

    Sorry I haven’t been around lately. Things have been pretty hectic around here.

    Cyn – our nurse told us as long as they have put on at least 100gms every week that’s fine. If you can maybe see if you can get him weighed this week and see how much he’s put on. So he’s almost put on 2 kgs in say 10 weeks so that’s around the 200gms per week which is fine!!!!! I think he’s doing perfectly!! As for sizing – I am a size 14 pushing a 16. I have almost been a 12 before so I guess that’s my real goal. I have lost 2.1kgs on my digital scales so I’m down to 80 – 14 more to go!! On my normal scales I’m 78 – almost pre pregnancy weight!! My MIL needs to be kicked to the kerb!! She told me that Danielle needs to sleep with her mouth closed otherwise she’s going to get asthma and she told me that she only put on 2 stone when she was pregnant with DH and I told her I put on 20 kilos and she told me that that’s way too much. Oh she also told me that eating lots of pasta helps loose weight – hellooooooooo – I think I know my body better and less pasta, rice, breads loose weight for me. She just opens her mouth and doesn’t think. I have to see her probably this weekend – bummer. My birthday is this Monday. Sorry for the rambling.

    Hi Dee – bugger about the infection. Good to her Adrian is going well.

    Kel – the Beehinds you need covers for. If you buy the package it gives you everything you need.

    Hiya Mads – welcome to our group.

    Fee – Cooper sounds like he’s going amazingly. I was worried Danielle was way behind in her growth but she’s only just behind Cooper in her 12 weeks measurements so I’m happy. Danielle’s a cancer baby too and she definitely wants to be needed.

    Sounds like everyone’s going through was Danielle went though about 2 weeks ago. I’m sure they will all grow out of it – it just takes time. Danielle’s decided she wants to be clingy already. Every time we hand her over to my Oma, my Mum, my Dad, anyone but me or Ken she squeals and makes herself all upset and she gets the sniggers after she get handed back to me and settles down again. It’s like she knows it’s not me or Ken. But saying that she’s not like that with my SIL. She can do anything with her and Danielle laughs and loves a cuddle with her. All I can think of it’s because we see more of my SIL than everyone else. This morning she has woken up in the best mood. She woke up at 7am, had her full bottle and now she’s in her bouncer smiling and squealing and giggling. It’s so cute. I got some on video camera too. I try and get it so Ken can see it too. She’s a darling.

    I’m off now. Deciding if I’m going to go out to see the Mother’s Group girls. We have a Monday with the clinic nurse who runs it and Thursdays for a general chit chat but it’s raining here and it’s cold and I’ve had a busy week I just want to stay home. I’d rather be over east where it’s nice and warm!! Have a great day everyone!!

    bubs- grr to your mother in law, she sounds like a cow, i think she needs to relise what is coming out of her mouth, well done on the weight lose, i weigh about 85 on my scales my dad had digital scales so i am going to weigh myself when i am over there on sunday. i don't know where she got her info on weight lose, you are suppost to cut down on bread, pasta and rice.

    Chantal- wow, zac is nice and healthy size, my DD is so small still, but it is nice.

    I went and got Charlottes hand and feet sculpted today i get them back in 4 weeks i carn't wait to see what they turned out like, it is so hot here today and windy it would be nicer if there wasn't any wind, i might head out to the shops later to get some thing s for Charlotte as we need new wraps i am going to look for the muslin ones, also i need summer cloths i have nothing to wear.

    Sorry - I'm so excited - I couldn't wait until tomorrow so I had to jump on now - I can get into my pre-pregnancy jeans!! I haven't worn them since December last year!! I can't believe it - it's actually working!! I'm so so so happy!!!!!!

    Danielle's also being an angel today. She's had an hour sleep at 8.30, then a feed, back to bed at 11am for just over 2 hours, another feed and she went back to bed at 3pm without any crying at any time!! We've been playing in between feeding and sleeping. She's been so good today. Hopefully she's like this tonight and I can tell Ken she's been wonderful the whole day!!

    Yes Kel - gggrrrr to my MIL. She can kiss my ass now that I've lost some weight and I can actually see it!!

    baizar- that is great well done, i have looked into that but it cost too much money, B/F has helped me lose some weight.

    I feel so BAD i was carryiing Charlotte around and was walking out of a door way when i herd a bang, she hit her poor head on the side of the wall, she didn't cry that much, but she went to sleep straight away (she was tired anyway) so i keep checking on her, i feel so BAD.
    Anyway we had a crap day yesterday Charlotte didn't really want to feed and she was screaming, mum was over and she went and got her some forumla, anyway she didn't really take that either, so i took her to my health centre and got her weighed to make sure she was getting enough. She has put on 260grams in 11 days, so she is getting enough, the health nurse said to strech her feeds to 3 hourly, this has made a big difference, she is feeding yay.
    so at 12 weeks she weighs 5090 yay she is over 5 kilos.

123 ...
