    Oh poor Charlie, is he over his cold now Sush?

    Bel, it was a fleece jumpsuit with matching fleece sleeping bag 0000, the jumpsuit hasn't fit for a few mths but the sleeping bag must've been extra long, I used to put her in it when I went walking later in the evening in winter & yes I do remember room to spare in the bottom, hehe. Hope ur friend's ok.

    Aw Bel hoping your friend us okay!

    Amanda, ooohhh can't wait to see your pics! What a great idea for a pressie! Your DP is very clever indeed!

    Shell, no Charlie's not quite over his cold. I've moved on from Baby Balsam to Vicks now, even though it gives him a bit of a rash, and I'm washing his clothes and sheets with a little Eucalyptus oil, to help him clear his nose. He also hasn't had a bath in about a week, just warm washes with hot water and eucaplytus oil mixed in. But for my efforts, he's been sleeping more and more, with a all-nighter last night!

    And yeah, some of those sleeping bags have heaps of room down the bottom. The one Charlie's in now, I reckon I could get another baby in the bottom and they wouldn't ever feel each other! Lol!

    we put jordy in a new bag last night... it nearly hangs to the floor off the end of the change table it's that big (bit of an exaggeration, but...)

    he was soooo comfy and warm in it when I got him up this morning at 6.30. Bit of a shock I reckon to him when I opened the bag to change his nappy then put him into some pants

    sush - try putting the vicks on Charlie's singlet/ underclothes rather that straight on his skin. Still has the same effect and may get rid of that rash.

    Haven't heard from my friend yet - only because stupid me left my phone at work last night, and i can't call mobiles from my landline. I was tempted to ask Mark to leave his phone at home so I could call her this morning, but he uses it too much at work for that. Hopefully I'll hear something this afternoon.

    BBL, going to take a photo of Josiah's toothy grin and post it...

    Bel- i hope your friend is ok, maybe she found out she is having more then one! let us know when you hear.
    Sushee- i hope Charlie starts to feel better soon, have u got a vaporsier? Ive heard they work really well in their room at night.
    Amanda- i hope the cream works for the excema, i have had it since i was a kid (not too bad) and hope Nixon doesnt get it, i have heard it can be carried on genetically too. Let us know how Abbey goes.

    Ive still been wrapping Nixon. He still loves being wrapped so i keep wrapping him!
    hmm someone mentioned getting the grow suit from sids and kids website? Can u pm the address i went to what i thought was it but couldnt find anything like that.

    We are still having feeding problems here, I keep persisting but i dont know for how much longer, ive just started taking fenugreek tablets to hopefully increase my supply, but wondering cause i got AF if thats come into play.... Also having attachment issues, tried wind drops, trying everything basically and still happening more and more often.
    Im going to syd next week for a week and a half and try and keep it up till we get back, but then Nixon will be 5 1/2 months and i think i gave him a pretty good start! Everyone says bf gets easier but i havent found this to be the case! Started off with expressing everyday for 4 weeks and had problems on and off since....

    Hi Ladies & Abs

    Sorry I disappeared for a couple of days was having problems with my computer so made DH look at it and he's finally got it up and running now, YAY. I'll be heading up to Bundy on Sat so for the week I'm up there I won't get much time on here either as we'll be organising Declan's christening.

    Has it cooled down again where all of you are? I thought it was finally warming up here but we've had rain on and off which has cooled things down quite alot again, it feels like its winter again.

    Declan is rolling alot more these days, I lay him on his mat and lets just say its not long until he is lying beside it or vertical to it. Also he has found his feet and decides they are a tasty treat, just keeps putting them in there.

    Lets see if my little munckin will give me enough time to do personals.

    Sushee - Sorry I haven't learnt all your names yet. I still haven't had PP AF. My original bleeding lasted about 2 weeks and then I haven't had anything since, thankfully. I am enjoying not having to worry about it. If Charlie isn't over his cold yet try the vicks on the soles of his feet then put socks on. Also I'd do what the other girls said and put the vicks on the singlet, my doc actually advised against putting vicks on Declan's chest but was the one to recommend to pop on the feet.

    Abs- Congrats to Jen with the awards. I bet she is still on cloud nine. Declan gets this shocked look when I change him first thing in the morning as if to say "Hey I was nice and toasty in here" I just love some of the expressions that I wish we could tap into their brains to see what they are thinking.

    Shell - how are you and Holly going? Is she back to sleeping through again?

    Amanda - Hope you enjoyed your dinner & can't wait to see the pics. We are using cortisone cream on Declan's legs cause he gets excema so as soon as we notice it starting up we just rub a small amount on the legs and it goes away quickly.

    Bel - Have you heard from your friend yet? I hope all is ok. At least you made it to work on time. HEHE.

    Nic - Hope things in the feeding department work out for you soon. Don't beat yourself up if you decide to swap to formula. You have given Nixon the best start to life and for sticking it out to almost 6 months.

    Lisa & anyone else I missed just wanted to say hi but have to go cause Declan has awoken and is calling. Will check back later if I can.

    Amy,

    actually my mum told me about the Vicks-on-the-feet thing when my older kids were bubs, and I've been doing it for Charlie too! And here I thought it was an old wives' tale! Lol!I'm glad I'm not the only one doing it, my DH thinks I'm a loon!

    Great idea, though, about putting the Vicks on his singlet instead of his chest, Bel! Thanks for that, I'll be trying it tonight.

    Nic, vaporisers are great! We have one, but coz I worry about over-heating - can you spot the paranoid mum? - I turn it on for a few hours before I put him to bed, but turn it off at about 10pm when I hit the sack myself. So unfortunately he's probably not getting the best out of it.

    Also re breast-feeding, I think you've done so exceptionally well to have gone this long if you've had problems on and off. Honestly, you're a champ! BFing for me is now pretty much a no-brainer, but if I had continued to have problems past the first few months, I'm not sure I would have been as committed as you have been. Hats off to you!

    oh yeah, HAPPY BIRTHDAY for yesterday(?) Amanda

    Amy, fully agree with wanting to tap into their head with various goings on

    It has cooled down here in Sydney... but today has been sunny - a nice change after several days of decent rain

    Jordy too has been grabbing his feet heaps lately. Dunno if he can get em in his mouth but certainly tries - tis about the only thing that doesn't. I remember him pulling on a sock and had that in his mouth yesterday

    I know others mentioned we probably/possibly shouldnt be having them stand on their feet, but our little boy just loves doing it. Sooo much more freedom to look around and make funny happy faces

    Hmm, home made sushi (by me) again tonight - Jens running some interviews over the phone for 2hours or so soon. Yummi to the max

    Yikes Sush, I did a google search for grobags & found them to be $65. I found TextileDesigns brand on BabiesGalore for $30 but will have a look at Kmart, Target, B&Less & ebay for some.

    Oh Nickers, do what's best for u. U've done pretty well, I agree with what Sush said.

    Sorry Amanda, I missed that, Happy B'day.

    Abs, it's really up to u, that's just what the prof's were saying. I've just started letting Holly stand on her feet in the last 2-3wks but I'm still taking the majority of her weight in her crutch.

    Amy, nah Holly's still waking. Was 1:30 + 6am yesterday & 1:30 & 7am today.

    The sleeping bag isn't working anymore as she's figured out how to still get mobile in the cot, doh. But it still works better than the wrap for now. I've put this morning's 2 pics of her escaping in my www.
    Holly's played with her feet 3 times so far in the last wk, only when in sitting posi, but hasn't figured out that she can touch them when lying down, hehe.

    Shell... I just checked out ur pictures of holly escaping, how cute, I had to laugh at how she had her foot out the seatbelt bit. Maybe a bigger size would help because they are longer and she might not reach the seat belt bit. goodluck! Abbey has found her feet a bit too but just when sitting up, her feet a really ticklish too.

    Thanks for the bday wishes abs and shell

    abs..abbey loves standing as well, if i'm holding her hands when she is sitting she pulls herself up to standing. and yum for the sushi, we had that for dinner tuesday. mmmm

    sushee..hope charlie is feeling better soon.

    nic.. hope you work out the feeding problems soon, like the others said you have done so well to go so long.

    bel..hope you have heard from ur friend and that everything is ok.

    the excema cream seems to be working so hopefully it will all be cleared up soon. she is being a sleepyhead today, but i might go get her up so we can go do some errands

    Hey all it has been awhile since I came in here!!! Been busy setting up my business and with Declan and I have done my back grrr!
    Declan is doing well is just over 8kgs not sure how long I will have him measured on the 29th which will be just before he turns 6mths old! He has to go to the head specialist on the 26th (when he was still in utero he had lodged his head on my pelvis so his head at the back is not how it should be, doesn't affect his development or anything oly cosmetic)
    we start swimming on the 27th bsy week that week hey!
    Declan has rolled once tries to crawl but fails heheheh stand very strongly and takes steeps assisted of course!
    well best be off

    had a reasonably good day in regards to feeding so far, fingers crossed. i started taking fenugreek tablets yesterday to increase my supply also. Thanks everyone for your encouragement. it really helps.
    Hi Bec! Good to hear from you again, glad Declan is well, we have another Declan in here now too, Amy's little boy. oh i bet u cant wait for swimming! we are starting Nixon in 3 weeks time, bought the little swimmers nappies today! they will probably swim (like the pun) on him though but they r the smallest they had!
    Shell- had a look at your pics. Did Holly go from the bottom of the cot all the way to the top of it herself?! wow little riggler!
    Amanda- i am glad the cream is working on Abbey, what cream is it?
    Lisa- we end going with the same place for Nixon's christening outfit! we are getting pants/shirt and vest one! its gonna be soooo cute, seings they are actually in sydney i will pick it up when we go up b4 the christening. What date is Tyron's christening?
    Amy- hope u have a nice time away, u going for a holiday/ got family there?

    Your ears must've been burning Bec, I was just saying to Amy how u have a Declan too. Sounds like ur doin well, that's great. How's Mitch, Jellybean & Jaime going in the March Babies thread?

    Hehe I know Amanda, I had to laugh when I saw her foot there too. Xlnt results on the cream.

    Nickers, they are 7-11kg & Holly was 5.44kg & they didn't really swim on her, so they should be fine. Yep, she was even rotating 90 to 180 degrees too when in a wrap, I know, she is a little wriggler, hehe. She kicks her sheet off & wriggles up until out of the anti-roll cushion which also ends up half way up the cot, then tries to roll against sides ending up with arms out the sides.

    Hi everyone.

    Sorry to leave you hanging re my friend. She's doing ok. Been bleeding, but not full on. The doctor at the hospital she went to wasn't very helpful. They did a scan, said baby's too small for dates (she's only 6 weeks, and wasn't certain of that), you're probably miscarrying come back next week. She of course freaked out - made all the worse coz her husband was overseas. Anyway, she's going to see my GP today, coz hers was hopeless (when she went in to confirm her pregnancy, she told the GP she'd done 2 preg tests, doc turned around and said 'so what are you here for then?') and hopefully get some more positive info. Emotionally she's doing ok, sort of at peace with whatever happens, but just wants answers. Anyway, that's the current saga this end of the country.

    Feet - Josiah LOVES his feet, has them in his mouth any chance he gets. He's been doing it for about 3 weeks or so I think. He also loves standing, and will pull himself up if he's holding your fingers.

    Happy Birthday for the other day Amanda. Hope you had a lovely day.

    Hi Becky - nice to hear from you.

    Hi to everyone else, I'm off to look at your pictures nic!
    Have a great weekend

    Bel


    ETA - What are cutie you have there Nic - it's amazing how fast they grow!
