    Is it ok to ramble in this thread too?? LOL

    LMAO @ Aidyn today, he sees his toy on the floor just out of reach, and he desperately wants to get it, and struggles, trying to push himself towards it, but he ends up going backwards a metre instead!!

    Sorry to hear about Felix's weight loss Katanya... hope things will be on the improve soon, and the paediatrician is a big help.
    The only other thing I can think of is for his solids to maybe try things that are high in natural fats (like avocado) or natural sugars?

    We had a small prang in our car this afternoon. The car in front of us was merging onto a main road and took off but then slammed on the brakes and we went into the back!!!! Only scratches on the other car, but ours looks pretty bad. Thank CHRIST we were all completely ok, considering little Aidyn was in the back. He seems completely fine, didnt even get a shock like we did. I only just got rid of the edgy/shocked feeling a little while ago.

    Yeah we can ramble in this thread too Ambah Urgh at the car accident glad to hear everyone is okay though and it didn't stress Aidyn out.

    Nothing huge happening this end. I haven't even got Lachlan weighed in a while so dunno what is happening there either LMAO. As I said in another post he is still hating vegies just spits them straight out but is scoffing down anything with fruit in it and his weetbix. Goodbye to Farex forever Been giving him 2 days of weetbix then a day of Petit Miam yoghurt cereal just to break it up a bit.

    Love

    Ambah: you poor thing having a bungle, doesn't matter how small it is it would be scarey especially with a baby in the car> I have a had a few close calls and I always have awful visions of Felix flying through the air ..morbid I know..it just scares me! Glad you are both okay.

    The idea about avocado is actually a great one as I was thinking of trying that next (we are doing pumpkin right now and while it's not being gobbled, but then he doesn't gobble anything yet, it's going in) at least I can relax about the avo being natural and it's got all those wonderful natural oils in them. I will try next..

    Hey everyone!

    Ok, I'm gonna try and remember everything I have to post here b/c I'm still replying to the Nov threads...

    Thanks for the support Ambah. And you know, I don't mind if you use Adara's name if you have a girl next time! I love it too (obviously) and there's only been 9 in Victoria ever so we could have a few more around the place! Has the teething eased up for him at all? We had a few of those nights too as she was teething since she was 3mths old. Poor little bubbas How scary the accident must have been, I have been terrified of having an accident with her in the car since I had her... Like you Katanya, I've been imagining all these terrible things that could happen. You just never know when someone could do something stupid. Glad Aidyn wasn't upset by it.

    Wow I can't believe you're going through the same thing with Felix, Katanya. It's pretty scary to see them going the wrong way on the scales. With Adara, it's b/c my milk supply dropped by so much not long after I concieved. She was feeding every hour for a while there and waking up all through the night for feeds. Before I knew that she was losing weight I assumed that she was just going through a growth spurt but then later I noticed she was dehydrated and not her usual happy self as much. She didn't take to solids at all until she was literally starving and then started to gobble them up out of hunger (like Felix she's a booby only baby and won't even have EBM either!). IKWYM about them only telling you to put on formula if you have any probs though, I've heard that from a few ppl recently too. But even my very pro-BF MCHN wanted me to add it to all her food and give her 1 bottle a day just to get her through until my milk supply evens out, hopefully after the 1st trimester. I'm with you, I want to keep BF as long as it's the best thing for her. Looks like I don't really have a choice anyway though! How's Felix doing lately?

    Things have started to look up for us now. I managed to sneak 60mls of formula into some sweet Italian baby biscuits for her breakfast and since she started that and is having 3 good meals a day she's been a lot happier and only waking up once during the night for a feed! \/ I had an appt yesterday to have her weighed and thankfully she'd put in 10grams :smt041 I'm thrilled! Nappies still aren't as wet as they should be but I'm hoping that will improve as my milk starts to come back. Got another appt in 2wks and I'm sure she'll be doing even better by then.

    More good news - her 1st bottom tooth appeared on Friday, surprisingly easily. And I had my 1st u/s yesterday, saw the baby kicking away! Good to know there really is something going on in there! Heart rate suggested I'm having another girl which surprised me b/c I was sure this one was a boy. I prepared DH for it b/c this was his last chance to have a DS after 2 DDs, I can understand why he'd be a little upset by it. I'd like to have one of each but I'm just as thrilled to have to little DDs running around, esp as they'll be so close in age. We won't know for sure for a while yet though.

    Sorry it's such a long post! I'll have to try to come back here more often!

    Take care everyone!

    YAY at the weight gain Mel!! and WOOHOO for Adara's first tooth!!! \/

    And goodluck to you both (Katanya & Mel) for yours bubs next weigh ins! :luck:

    Well done Lachlan!! Or should I say - Stay down Lachlan!! LOL

    Christy and Matilda came to visit us in our new house today. It was a nice relaxing day, and the babies had a great playtime for hours. It looked like they were teaching/encouraging eachother to crawl and do other outrageous new things! LOL
    Aidyn was sitting so well today, with a straight back, and he had periods of up to 20mins without toppling once! He also made it onto his hands and knees quite a few times, yelling with frustration - he obviously knows what he wants to do!! Looks like he will be crawling very soon... time to make sure the place is babyproof!! Maybe I should ask for some security gates and cupboard locks etc for Chrissy too...

    Just killing time now waiting for the dishwasher to finish so I can sterilise & make up tomorrow mornings bottle. I'm dead tired & would love to go to bed, but theres nothing worse in the morning than stumbling and fumbling around with nothing prepared!!(been there done that!)

    I haven't been getting any notifications..whats up with that?

    Well Mel, it does sound like Felix's and Adara's issue are slightly different and I think what you are doing is right by her. I have agonised long and hard about this issue and because we have very wet nappies, very active boy and generally content and happy, sleeping pretty well etc..I am not going to worry..I didn't weigh him this week as I didn't see the point but next week we will and take it from there. I think half my agonising is that I feel that my previously chubby bub is skinny with toothpicks for legs, and I would love him to have a more rounded baby look, but the reality is this is probably just him! Long and lean!

    He actually half chewed on some avocado today and swallowed it..very exciting..he eats banana and rice cereal in the morning and avocado in arvo

    It is great news about Adara's tooth and not getting any symptoms...that is WONDERFUL!!

    Well done Lachie for getting up...Poor you Kathryn I am not looking forward to that day!

    Sounds like you will be heading towards that Ambah..I visited a friend who's baby crawled at around 6 mths and she was encouraging him to crawl, and I said..no thank-you he can do it in his own time!

    Well guess who is 8mths old today and to celebrate decided he would commando crawl. I put him on the floor this morning and he commando crawled to his nearest toy. So to make sure it wasn't just a freak of nature i took the toy off him and put it further away sure enough he commando crawled to it again. Looks like my baby is now on the move. NOOOOOO

    Kathryn, I am not getting any notifications for new posts in here, i just had to come and search in here this morning to see if there was..? Is there something wrong? or could it be iwth my settings, but I have been getting it for other posts so I don't understand?
