    Well our Fletchie is a hoon! Go girl!

    Kirsty - I have been thinking the same thing re playing! I do the same stuff with Lucie. I have a Fischer Price play thing that she kicks and it plays songs. She just worked out yesterday how to kick it to make it work (or maybe it was just a fluke!).



    Ellissa - Yay for Makon's weight gain - that's fab! How did you decide on that name by the way? I love it!

    How much do all your babies spew? Lucie did a big one at the shops today, after all that work getting food into her it is so depressing. I klnow they always look bigger than they are, but it worries me all the same.

    Soph,
    Maddy had reflux & I'd get 100ml of formula into her & then sit her up to burp her & it seemed like 200ml would fly across the room, she did big projectile's every feed!
    Then I started feeding her (she was formula fed) in an almost upright position & it was slightly better! But she still gained weight!
    It did always look like heaps more came out than what went in...

    Don't worry, your a legend & remember: SOPH, YOUR A WONDERFUL MUMMY!

    Fletch, my EX had the wickedest Torana SLR 5000, totally resprayed & had a roll cahe & racing interior, I used to love driving that!!!!
    I was a major rev head too... I really want one of those Chrysler Crossfires, but a bit too $$$$$ for us!!!!

    So I got my old red Ford! [-( not happy, but get's me from A-B!

    Ah thanks Tracey, makes me feel a lot better. Thing is the spew is often about 2 hours after the feed!!!! As long as she is gaining weight I'm not going to stress (yeah right).

    And another petrol head hey? You girls are full of suprises!

    Ok my time to brag. I've been making these stupid noises to Lucie and she smiles and chuckles. Basically a 'ooooooo' sound with similar shaped mouth. Anyway today for like 5 minutes we were making them together! I was in tears it was soooooooo lovely. What a clever possum! Needless to say straight afterwards I was like "mum, mum, mum, mum, mum". Gotta make sure that's her first word!

    Hello lovely ladies

    Glad to hear you are all doing so well. Soph arent they just simply gorgeous all the little noises they make. Ive started tearing up many times..its just so beautiful. keep up the good work...sounds like little Lucie is one happy contented little bubba.

    Kirsty when Sammy was 6 weeks we would just do the same things that you are already doing with him now. After a feed and change there doesnt seem to be that much time before they are ready to fall asleep again..lol.

    Fletchie whoo hoo on the new car..so exciting. Cute about the rattle..Sammy is just starting to reach out for things now as he has just found his hands. It is so cute cos he will hold his hand out in front of him..open and shut it and twist it all about and hes just fascinated..its just the most gorgeous thing. Like wow these things are attached to me. Are you getting ready to move to the next forum..lol..the weeks just fly by dont they.

    Hi Elissa glad to see Makon is doing all the right things growing..clever lil pumpkin.

    Hi Tracey...hows gorgeous little Indah today?

    Hello to all you other ladies..Mel hope you and Hunter are doing fantastically..we miss you...Storm...how is little Zac..come and say hello. Yvette no doubt you and the girls are doing marvelously you supermum you.

    Well we have just gotten back from the mums and bubs movie "Must love dogs". Thought it was a bit disappointing actually but i guess it was a no thinking movie which is good when theres bubbies squealing and wanting to be fed. Sammy was laying there smiling up at me..he is so unphased by the noise..think hes used to it now..hes been a few times. Well we have sunshine today yaay..havent gone for a walk yet though..im feeling lonely...Darren has been working really long hours..sigh..looking forward to the weekend.

    Talk soon ladies

    Hey Girls

    Gemma has been pretty restless today and has probably only slept for a couple of hours tops.Maybe that means she'll sleep right through the night and not wake for a feed!?Yeh right! Gem has also started to suck her thumb!So cute but I am a little worried about her getting into that habit as I was a thumb sucker and it took me sooo long to break the habit.

    Has anyone put there bubs in their big cots yet?I still have Gemma in her bassinette and am wanting to move her but am kinda aprehensive as she spits her dummy out at night and wakes looking for it so its handy to have her next to me.What has everyone else done/doing?

    Take care..........

    Kirsty I still have Sammy in the bassinette right next to my bed but I am thinking of moving him to his cot now too. Ive been putting him in his cot sometimes during the day to get him used to it and he loves the mobile on it so dont think the transition will be a prob..im just not prepared to have him sleeping all the way away in his room so am going to have to get DH to move the cot into our room. I just love him being close to me.

    And the "massive baby" airplane crashes into the month old plus forum!

    Forum Name: Divvy
    State: Vic
    Baby's DOB: 27th September 2005
    Baby's Stats: Weight - 9lb 7oz (4280gms), Length - 51.5cm Head Circ - 37.5cm
    Gender of Baby: Boy
    Baby Name(s): Edward William John (Ned)
    Baby's Website: like hello....
    Health Concerns: nup
    Notes: was attempting vbac, but after 8 days overdue and nothing happening, turned into a c/s...

    Well it's good to see a few of you again, Tracey, Kirsty, Jo, Fletchie, Ellissa, Soph...

    Soph, sorry to hear about your troubles with Lucie, don't forget YOU'RE A GREAT MUMMY and things WILL sort themselves out in time. We had awful trouble with Alex's feeding and weight gain, they do fix themselves in a few months. Woohoo on the 150ml/kg... I remember that!

    Tracey, you're doing wonderful with the b/f, sounds like Indah is such a lovely baby, sleeping so well for you! I wish Ned could catch some of that!

    Kirsty, the paed said to me that babies tend to "wake up" at about 6 weeks, they are a lot more alert and playful. Just talking to them can stimulate them, also putting them under a mobile or playing music...

    Jo, can't believe Sammy is nearly 3 months already! Doesn't time fly!

    Fletch, Zane is just so cute, nice to hear he's doing so well. Woohoo on the sleeping too!

    Ellissa, I remember getting organised for our wedding, it's just SO exciting! And Makon will be wonderful and you'll find him just the right outfit... what date in November are you getting married?

    Well, Ned is a huge baby, started out at 4280gms, discharge weight at 5 days was 4000gms, then at 14 days old was 4520gms, I'm dreading the MCHN appt this Friday (oops that's tomorrow) because I reckon he's hit 5kgs...

    No wonder he's feeding two-three hourly during the day. He's just starting to go almost four hourly overnight... which is SO much better for me. I'd be stuffed without my wonderful mum, who has come over just about every weekday since I got home. She's been looking after the boys so I can have an afternoon nap (which I really really need).

    Anyway, boy waking, wants more boobies (I'm also formula feeding at the alternate feeds because I just don't have the supply, I also HATE breastfeeding...)

    Yay Divvy - welcome!!!! Wow how big is Ned??? On MOnday Lucie weighed 4.6, so your 1 month old is waaaaay bigger than my 2 monther!

    Kirsty - Lucie has been in her cot from day 1 too. We've put her in the lounge room. We did have her in her room with a baby monitor, but the darn thing picked up so much static it drove us nuts. So she'll be in the lounge (closer for us to hear) for a little while longer until I'm a bit more comfortable.

    Jo - Not long until the weekend now! I actually liked the movie, a good no brainer!

    Fletch - Been driving much today?

    Will miss muffet has decided today is pretty much a no eating day. much to my annoyance. She's up to 230ml since midnight but is a bit all over the shop. Will try her again at 11.30/12. She seems happy enough and as long as she is hydrated, that's the main thing. I actually rang the pharmacy to order the lactose free formula, but I'm still not sure that that is the answer either. So then I rang and cancelled again! Will wait and see how she ends up going today and tomorrow I guess.

    Hi everyone

    Well Maria is 2 months old today and has been very unsettled. She has a cold, thus is all snuffy. I have been using baby fess, but the flem (yuk) seems to be going into her tommy. If she hasn't been feeding today she has been crying or wanting to be cuddled. I think she has an unpset tummy from the cold but not much is helping her pain. Anyone ideas?? DH has taken her to Eastgardens now so as to give me some me time. But of course now I feel incompentant that I can't cope with her when she is like this. Maria was premmie by almost 6 weeks so she has a corrected age of 2 weeks, it is hard to know whether her unsettledness is from her just not liking the sensation of filling the nappy/wind or is a growth spurt etc.

    Sorry this is so long

    Hello lovely ladies

    Kirsty thats so great Gemma is doing so well...what a clever little sausage.

    Welcome Divvy and Ned. I know exactly what you mean about big baby lol. My little darling was mistaken for a 6 month old today..i had to laugh.

    Fletchie..no doubt you hooning around in your new car today..enjoy.

    Soph hows gorgeous Lucie doing today?

    Hello Elissa, Mel, Tracey, Mel...hope you are your lil bubbies are all well.

    Ive had a gorgeous day today. Sammy and I had a date with a friend for coffee this morning and then we went shopping for Olivias birthday..shes turning 7 in a couple of weeks. Sammy was very accomodating..smiling at everyone and looking cute. Mind you the amount of old ladies that ive had come up to me while we were shopping and hold his little hand while he smiled at them was amazing...sociable little fellow. I think cos he was wearing big boy jeans and boots everyone wanted to comment and say how cute he looked....lol.

    Well best go..we are going out for dinner tonight so need to organize all 4 chilluns before Darren gets home. Talk soon

    Louise sorry to hear you are having a tough time of it with little Maria. Its hard when little ones are sick because you feel so helpless. I hope shes feeling better real soon and she starts feeding better for you.

    Louise, Alex was five weeks prem and always had a tough time when he got sick. He was prone to chest infections and flu-ie type colds and things. I found that lots of baby Panadol and heaps of hugs were the only thing that helped. If I overfed him, he'd just chuck it up and that seemed to make the cold/flu/infection worse. Mind you, he had a huge growth spurt at about 6weeks, then again at 9 weeks, then again at 12 weeks, so it could be a growth spurt for Maria too. Just remember, you WILL get through the tough times, and make sure you have some time out just for you. Maria won't choke or get sick if you walk out for a five minute shower. Best wishes.

    Jo, PMSL at Sammy being mistaken for a six month old. Our big boys eh!

    Kirsty, you and Jo and I should make up a "porker" forum eh!

    Shannon, "like hello..." means "like I'm so technophobic I wouldn't have a clue where to start..." I mean, we don't even have a digital camera over here, let alone the ability to download stuff onto internet... I've really got NO IDEA when it comes to this stuff!

    Anyway, DH has Ned on the couch with a bottle whilst I have five minutes of me time before the boobies are AGAIN required.... I WANT SOME SLEEP... or at least six hours in a row... but I think it's gonna be some time before that happens in this house!

    Divvy - Hope you managed to get some sleep last night.

    Jo - Wow Sammy sounds soooo cute. And how do you cope with 4 kids????

    Louise - I hope Maria is feeling better today and you can both get some rest.

    Well Lucie had a particularly bad day yesterday feeding wise. Not sure if it was the heat or what, but of course I was stressed out again and had visions of emergency dept yet again. Managing to get a bit into her and she is hydrated (touch wood) which is the main thing. She took 90ml at 7am so that will keep her going until next feed at least. I'm off to see a chiropractor today - I'll try anything at the moment! And I've also ordered the neocate formula which is the lactose free stuff. It cost mega $$$ - like $80 a can without a script, but because we have one we get 8 cans for $28, ends up being cheaper than the other stuff! I am hoping something is going to work anyway, although apparently this formula tastes vile so that may be another battle! Ok off to get ready for chiro. I hope today is a better day.

    Hey everyone!

    Louise, its so awful when they are sick, I really hope Maria is feeling better.
    Soph, good luck with the new formula, hope it does the trick. Bonus that it is cheaper too! Hopefully it wont taste too terrible for Lucie.
    Jo, I think tiny little jeans are just the cutest things ever, I bet Sammy looked just adorable! Have fun birthday planning, Isaac is 7 today (my baby is so big, :smt022 ) and I just love doing the birthday thing.
    Kirsty, you have such a big girl! Fabulous to hear you are both doing so well!
    Divvy, hope the sleep situation is improving for you. Good luck!

    Reilly had his 4 week check on Wednesday, and he is now over 4kg!!! (only by 35g, but still). To me he still seems so small, as Isaac was 9lb 4oz at birth, so Reilly still isnt even that big! Isaac is 7 today, which makes me kinda happy and sad at the same time. I told DH that I will have to start telling people he is adopted, because I dont feel old enough to have a 7 year old son, lol. The time just goes so fast, doesnt it?
    Well, best be off, I have a roboraptor to wrap!

    PMSL at Nixie's "adopted" son! Well done at 7yo! Woohoo on the weight gain, too!

    Soph, I have Ned on S26LF which is a lactose free formula. It's about $18 a can, but tastes fine (as far as I can see). I had Alex on it too, as he's lactose intolerant, and he loved it. Best wishes with the new formula, and sorry to hear you had a yuck day.

    Louise hope Maria is getting better for you.

    Well Ned and I went to MCHN today. My porker is getting porkier! He now weighs 5365 gms, that's weight gain of 845 gms in two weeks. No wonder my boobies are sore! He also grew 2cm in head circ, and 2cm in length. Crikey bananas!

    Maybe he'll slow down now so I can get some sleep!
