    Anyone tried their kids on Ribena yet. Lachlan loves it. He has woken up at fair bit the last week during the night Grrr (once only though) and i don't want to give him milk, so have been giving him boiled water with a touch of ribena. By morning the whole bottle is gone and I don't hear boo from him again. So I just make it up before bed now and if he cries just give him the bottle and leave him to it.

    Love

    God what alot of action while I was away, I think people posted while I was writing my last post..

    Ambah on the issue of sleeping AGAIN! I have my cot against the bed in our room, and he used to sleep really well in it, now I'm just used to having a little body next to me that I don't put him back into it..Tell you DP if the only reason he doesn't want him there is for some "you time" why does that have to be done in a bed anyhow..? why not use this time to be creative, when felix is in our bed and when we don't want to sleep IYKWIM..we go elsewhere...tried it with him awake in the side cot, but I couldn't concentrate!! Boy enough with all the inuendo..shame this isn't the Adults only section!

    Well Felix is asleep again..he had a short nap when we got home and woke up really grumpy wanted more boobie, just cracked it when I tried to feed him solids and then when i gave him boobie fell asleep again..in between all this I had to try to get the urine sample...and he was pulling at it (it's a willy bag collector) and crying when I tried to give him other things..*sigh* now he's soundly asleep in his portacot again, and I can relax because I know he can't roll out of it!
    Kathryn haven't tried Felix on Ribena, I'm trying to hopefully just stick with water..he might have other ideas as he gets older!

    Thanks Christy, i must have posted the same time as you..yeah a bit of a unanswered question, not sure what is worse not knowing what is wrong but imagining what could be wrong, or knowing and having to deal with that? I am trying not to do too much of the former because it will lead nowhere..

    ROFL!!! Sorry Kathryn!!! I will go and change it now! 8-[
    Geez that is awful about the sunburn!! poor thing!

    Katanya - I have replied to your other post... . You are doing really well not to stress so much just yet, it is a hard thing to do - trying not to let your imagination get the better of you... I so, so hope that everything is going to be just fine.

    Also, what you wrote in blue there is EXACTLY true... because I just noticed the other day, when I was at my sisters picnic, One of her friends was holding Aidyn, and he started to cry and streched his arms out towards me, like he wanted me to hold him instead! I thought it was really sweet at the time, but I'm thinking that maybe he does get seperation anxiety?! This is making me rethink what to do... and also gives me a better understanding, so I dont feel so frustrated with the situation. I think the extra mattress by the bed might be the way to go... now if only I can dry it out in the sun or something...LOL
    I am still going to try to teach him to settle in his cot for naps though, just so he is more used to it.
    I will try asking DP about the cot next to the bed... but I still dont think he will go for it... I guess its not just a privacy issue, but space moreso as well... anyway, will just have to see what comes of it, for all I know he might be all for it!!
    Thanks so much for your advice!!

    Ambah, you poor thing! I'm sorry, I can't really give you much advice on this as Adara only ever woke up from hunger during the night and will only sleep in her own cot. Do you have sleep schools up there? I know in Melbourne you can take your baby to a sleep school if your having problems... I'm not sure what kind of advice they give you though. IKWYM about not wanting to let them cry, I also think it makes a difference what sort of baby you have as to whether it works or not. Good luck with it :luck:

    Wow Kathryn, you're brave doing Xmas with 2 littlies! Hope the sunburn heals soon!

    I took MAtilda to the sleep school up here & we did well...but it was really hard because you did have to hear them cry & now I don't do things the same way at all... there are day centres though that you might try Ambah that have CHN's run them...might be worth phoning your closest CHN & discussing it if you want...

    Just a really quick post as I am so tired tonight and want to get to bed.

    Ambah there is a place at Pacific Fair on teh GOld Coast that does the etching ... I know that isnt too close to you but it is a start I guess. I will keep looking and see if I can find one closer to Brisbane for oyu.

    Sorry I am no help with the sleep thing ... all of mine have been really good sleepers.

    Asha ate dinner tonight ... she had mixed vegetables and apple custard! She loved it all.

    Hi to everyone else.

    Cheers

    Hi Girls

    We are a quiet bunch today.

    Yay for Asha eating her dinner what a good girl !!

    Lachlan hasn't had his 3pm bottle for the last 2 days, so looks like he might be dropping that. He was a bit whingy around 3pm but not a FEED ME whinge like he does at other times of days, so I gave him a bottle of ribena and he was quite happy with that, then he had his tea at 5pm.

    Today Kam and I had some wedges for lunch again and there wasn't quite enough so I put some chips on with them to grill. Lachlan started going berko so I put three of the soggier chips to one side and let them cool and then gave them to him one by one. He ate the lot !!

    Can't wait for him to get stuck into xmas turkey blended with vegetables LOL. Although he has eaten tiny amounts of chicken that i have picked off the bone for him before

    Anyway DOOL time.

    Love

    Hi girls! Sorry I've not been around today... been sooo tired and DH took the day off to let me sleep...so I had 11 hours last night & two lay downs today! I even slept for 2 hours during one of them!! I knew I just needed sleep....

    Matilda's going well...into EVERYTHING...so its a bit of a chase right now during her crawl time...she crawls straight to what we don't want her to touch... ](*,) All I can keep saying is thank god for the play pen!!

    It has been quiet today hasn't it?

    LOL at Lachlan wanting the chippies, intesting about him dropping a bottle I guess around his age they start prioritising food don't they? Turkey and vegies sounds yummy I have been told to do food before breastmilk but sometimes of the day it works and others it doesn't..he rarely eats well in the morning after his morning BF and I refuse to change it!
    Kathryn I was looking at your website for Lachlan, I haven't looked at Kam's sorry, it is so great, I love the rolling sequence..he is such a cutie!!

    Christy that is so great your DH took the day off to let you sleep Matilda definitely sounds like full time work..I envy you all that sleep!!WOW! I have a rolly baby who moves around by rolling but it's not as sucessful at getting into trouble as a comando crawler..that will come though!!

    Well test results came back for blood, poo and wee..all normal..the CF test hasn't come back yet but it's not likely it'll be positive so it looks like in the new year we'll be up to visit the brisbane paed..

    I am getting him weighed tomorrow, it'll be interesting to see if and how much weight he has gained..ribs are still sticking out so it can't be heaps! I fed him fresh mango and yogurt today and he LOVED it!! So exciting!
    Still trying to get him interested in chicken, it's just not happening..his favourite foods are still avo, custard and now mango (and yogurt seems to be doing well) I add Flaxseed to everything which is a good fat additive!

    I want to ask about tuna tomorrow, because someone told they fed their baby tuna with oil and it is obviously very healthy, I also eat alot of tuna myself so perhaps he has already got the taste from the BM?

    Just wanted to share a quick tip I read on another board today ....

    instead of saying no all the time or stop to babies who want to get into everything try saying "ONE FINGER" (hard when they are still so young) and then show them how to touch with one finger. They can not do much damage with one finger and they cant pick something up with one finger which means they cant drop it.

    HTH someone ... am goign to try it with Asha once she starts moving ... which doesn't look like it will be far off ... during tummy time the other day she tried to use her legs to push herself forward!!! *sigh* okay you can stop growing for a little while baby girl

    Cheers

    Hello ladies

    Thanks for the tip Kelly... DP's mother lives on the Gold Coast, so it actually wouldnt be too much trouble to go there and check it out!
    Also that touching with one finger tip is interesting too... will have to give that one a go!

    I wish Aidyn would eat his dinner... he seems to have a sweet tooth atm... still not liking his veges and meat... maybe if I stop giving him special baby stuff and more of what we eat we will have more luck with him. I let him lick my sandwich today, and he ended up tearing off a chunk with his mouth LOL, plus he ate a couple of tiny morsels of the beef rissoles we had for dinner.
    Sleepwise lastnight did not go so badly, he only woke up the once. DP has actually agreed to try putting the cot next to the bed :shock:, but we have said we will give it until the weekend to see how things go first. [-o< ing for another good night tonight.

    I wish Aidyn would drop a bottle like Lachlan... he is still on 4x200ml a day, but I can usually only get one meal of solids into him as he never usually eats his dinner.

    Christy, I'm glad to hear you got some good sleep!! Well done to DP for taking some time off to help you out! =D>

    Katanya, that is good news that his tests came back all clear!! Now here's [-o< ing that there will be an all clear from the paed as well. When are you coming up to Brisbane?

    Ok, sorry if I have missed anyone, but its nearly midnight and I need some shut-eye!!!!

    Hi Girls

    I hear you about the kids only wanting sweet stuff. Lachlan was like that too and only but after persistance he is now into eating the savoury.

    Thanks for the compliments on Lachlan's website Katanya I really must update but will wait till after xmas now

    I like the one finger idea too Kelly, will have to try that myself when Lachlan starts touching stuff he isn't meant too. Only thing he is touching atm is the dog water and food, so he gets a firm "No" for that.

    Hey Ambah they recommend kids this age to have at least 700ml of formula or breastmilk a day (that is what it says in my heinz book anyway) So with Lachlan dropping a bottle technically he is only getting 600ml. But I have upped his night bottle by 50ml and he has custard and yoghurts during the day to make up the other 50ml

    I have had a two day headache againg ARGH I think it is the stupid weather, jeans and jumpers on one day and not much on the next. Least it isn't a migraine just an annoying headache.

    Anyway I should toodle off and get some jobs done before it warms up to 38c.

    Kelli D - how are things going over in the warm Kalgoorlie haven't heard from you in here for a little while. Unless i have missed it.

    Love

    Christy that is good news about the tuna, I really love it so I thought it would be good. I'm going to ask the MCHC nurses today help me a bit more with his diet, as to what variety etc..and trying to keep it as heathy as possible.

    Kelly that is a GREAT tip about the touching rule..I try to say gentle when he can touch but not grab and take it away if he can't touch at all..they say they have a 3 second memory at this age anyhow..mostly I just try to redirect him but I will try that one finger thing when he's deciding to on his own..

    Ambah, interesting about him eating off your plate, they do say that is more ideal, why don't you put your desired food for him on your plate>? or even what you are doing sounds fine.
    Good luck with the cot next to the bed, if you keep him in it then at least later on you just ahve to move it back, I know that Felix just like to have his eyes on me ATM due to the separation anxiety..I can't even go to the toilet alone when he's awake!

    The appointment for the chest specialist paed will be in the new year(will be arranged in 2 weeks), perhaps when I am up I might try to organise to meet up with you girls? Depending on when it is of course. Then again last 2 times I have seen Gold Coast Paed I've had to have heaps of tests following the appoint so it probably wouldn't be safe to organise something the same day?

    Ambah if you do come down for that crystal thing let me know and we can do coffee at Pac fair?

    Kathryn I hope that headache goes away for you, could just be all the build up till christmas and changes in weather as you say..just hope things feel better before christmas for you

    Felix is having a sleep in (it's 7.50!!) because he woke me up at 4am this morning and decided to babble on and pull my hair, I just rolled over and ignored him and eventually he decided he's have something to eat and fall asleep again..cheeky monkey!
