    Yeah Kel, I have made it my personal mission to get Beau to settle in his cot now himself - I havent "rocked and patted" for about a week now and it feels really good...also he is just to bloody heavy too! I feed him - then wrap and burp, give him a quick pat and face stroke etc in his cot then walk out - if he wont take his dummy I just wait till he grizzles and leave him go back etc until he sleeps on his own - his day sleeps have been better too - sometimes 2hours!!
    I am still wrapping him but just once in a giant muslin one and he can move about a bit more....
    Ok I have him plonked in his cot waiting for DH to come home - better grab him out before he shouts the house down!

    Good to see its working for you Jen! Well done!

    Kel - I aim to please Needless to say, DF enjoyed the view too

    Mel - hope is all OK with mini-Moo? Is it just teething? Hugs for the cutie-pie! (and Pip is wailing now too!)

    Today, we put Pip on the lawn, then later took him to the park where we had a BBQ for Trev & I - he's eaten grass on our lawn now, and also at the VicParks Birdland Reserve I very cute with the eating grass though!

    Cant decide whether last night was ok or a shocker....DH is away and its all a blurr these days!
    Had to give B baby panadol at bedtime last night as he would not settle for his little tooth...he was awake then at 11, 12:30, 3:30, 5:15 and with me till 6 kicking me in the belly (still! - except this time last year it was inside he he)
    Its just par fot the teething course...
    lol Kaz at the grass eating! I am forever finding dust bunnies just in bubs reach...we have a shag rug and its a nightmare! I have to get out there and fertilize our "lawn" cause there is just dirt patches at the moment - and the stinky neighbours cut all the gorgeous bouganveilla down on the weekend so now it looks even worse!
    Sorry for rubbing it in but I cant wait till my spa weekend on the gold coast! Need to dig out suitable yoga/zen type clothing so i look like I fit in!

    Ack Jen, that's no good. There's a teething gel (sm-33) with a mild anaesthetic in it - similar to the anaesthetic throat lozenges - that is quite effective I've found? Hopefully you can get a good night's sleep soon. Pref before your spa weekend!

    Pip is currently blowing raspberries and whomping in his cot - he's got a few marks (bruises?) on his spine and I'm wondering if that's from the whomping?

    Anyhows, have a good day, its a glorious one down here

    Ah I would love a spa weekend. The moo was a bit of a terd yesterday, I think shes teething, but cant see or feel anything in there. She also cracks it when I leave her sight. At least shes still sleeping well overnight, otherwise I think I would loose the plot. If its teeth bring them on.
    Ok that was enough time now the moo is cracking it......
    Have a great day

    Wow this could be a long post, feels as though I haven't been on here for ever. I've been sooo busy.

    Hope everyone who was unwell is feeling better & those darn teeth cut throug soon Charlie is teething again, but still sleeping alright at night. Just extra clingy, not eating etc.

    I hope bubs that haven't been sleeping great settle soon too. We've been lucky here, Charlie only wakes once or not at all. So I'm not fussed giving him a small top up during the night. I don't give him too big a drink or he won't eat properly the next day.

    Today I had Charlie, & his 11month & 2.5yr old cousins for 5hrs.....needless to say I don't want anymore kids!!!! Ok I'll get over it but far out that's tough work.

    Have been mega busy here, going to the gym any chance I can get. Want to look in shape when I see my family & friends at Chrissy time, also going to Aqua Aerobics (turns out that's not as easy as it sounds). Ah Charlie had his first day at Daycare yesterday, he looked so sad when I went to pick him up - I almost had a cry.

    Getting a big excited about Chrissy here, just trying to find the perfect Santa Sack for Charlie. MIL is giving us a bit of trouble over Christmas but I'm not going to let her ruin it!!!

    Ok, Hi to everyone. I've been reading all the post, just can't keep up at the moment LOL. Hope you are all well. Great to hear some of you got to catch up, wish I could!! Let's hope all our bubba's finish teething soon. Charlie is a handful ATM always crying when left on the floor, frustrated wanting to crawl. Seems I spend all day sitting with him, Oh well.

    I'll try & keep up from now on.

    Hello everyone,
    Hope you are all doing fine. Olivia is ok atm, but yesterday she did my head in. I dont think it helps that I am coming down with something and my patience is wearing very thin. feel like I have been hit by a bus this morning. Probably just a head cold or something. Still no teeth here, the gums are lumpy down the bottom and looks like the 4 bottom ones are moving about. Ah well. I have been so emotional lately because Olivia has been so demanding and grumpy. DF only gets to see it after work and then she goes to sleep at 830, so really only a few hours. I think I might start going for a walk on my own after he gets homw from work, just to clear my head.
    Today is a busy day for us. We have phsio (hopefully the last one...but then again who knows!), then we are seeing someone about our homeloan..what do we do with that!, we are going to my mums for her birthday, I got her a mug with a photo of Olivia on it and it says i love my nana this much with face and outstreatched arms, and then Adam and I are going to the crowded House concert in the city. They are my fav band. I cant wait. We even cut our trip to Europe a bit shorter to fit in the Split enz concert!!!!!!
    Ok, well have I yabbered enough...OMG, Olivias not crying yet!!!!
    By the way, is anyone feeding their bubs meat? I made up some spag bol sauce as per a bubs cookbook, then minced it up. Shes had 2 meals of it and seems to chuck up a fair bit of it. I think we will hold off for a while. Hows your bubs going with meat??? I just think its too heavy for her tum.
    Better go feed her breakfast.
    Have a great day
    Love melissa

    Hey there Melissa, I got given a great book in regards to sleeping etc & it's helped sooo much. So I've been going by most of what it says. It includes what foods & when. I've given Charlie both Lamb & Chicken minced up with vegies, he's fine with these. I don't see the point in feeding them on their own IYKWIM.......in regards to her chucking up a fair bit of the spag bol sauce, could it have been something else perhaps? In my book it says we should hold off tomato until around 8months?? perhaps that was it?

    Hi!

    Sorry I haven't been on....We spent Mon & Tue up at Bonnie Doon with the PIL. Had a great time. Dylan had a ball crawling around everywhere!
    Guess what?? We have his sleep sorted! Woohoooooooo!!!!
    We had a couple of intense nights but now he's dropped his night feed and is sleeping for hours on end! Woohoo! It's a miracle! LOL! And what happened last night?? I woke to have to go to the toilet - hehehe. Always the way!

    Oh yeah - and he pulled himself to standing on the edge of the dishwasher the cheeky bugger!! What else in Dylan world?? The last 2 nights he was so tired after dinner he fell asleep in his highchair! so cute - we even got it on video - hehe.

    Kaz - Yeah on the solids - have you seen those tommee tippee feeder things?? I put chunks of fruit in that and Dylan has a munch on it. It's like a little mesh thing...
    Nup - no cloth here - I'm way too lazy for that - good on you though!!
    Cleaning?? Whats that?? Not much of that happening around here at the moment - LOL!
    Yeah on another tooth as well!!! Sorry to hear he had a fall...we're getting lots of that with Dylan at the moment and unfortunately he seems to do most of it on our floorboards!! He's getting tough though - some knocks I swear he's going to scream but he just picks himself up and off he goes - LOL!
    Poor little munchkin sounds a bit in the wars - hope he's settled down for you a bit!
    LOL at eating grass...Dylan did that today while I was hanging out washing but he grabbed a dry leaf instead and then proceeded to chuck up half of his milk feed...silly duffa.

    Kel - Hope Lily keeps sleeping so well in her cot for you! Thats great! Ooh oat brits are a good idea! Are they just in the supermarket??

    Melissa - Sorry to hear you didn't go away and that Olivia isn't well - hope she's on the mend! Dylans the same at the moment - hates to be left alone - luckily I get away with a bit more because he loves Louis' company but if Louis walks off all hell breaks loose. It was so cute though - he was crawling around the house today just looking for us - poor little thing looked so sad on his own...
    Big hugs...a walk sounds like a great idea...it can get very draining sometimes - I promise it won't last forever though!!!
    How did you go at the physio?
    Hmmm - I haven't given Dylan meat yet but it's next on my list...Maybe it's something else in the recipe?? Did it have tomato/onion etc? Sometimes the acidic foods are the ones they'll throw up....just a thought. (LOL just read Erins post - hehe - great minds think alike!)
    Wow what a huge day!! I hope you get a good nights sleep!

    Jen - Yeah on a toothy peg!!! I'm so glad Beau's sleeping better for you! Thats so good! Sorry to hear you had a rough night...Please please can you pack me in your suitcase for your weekend away? - LOL!!!

    Erin - Glad Charlie is going so well - wow on the great sleeping. LOL at not wanting any more kids! hehe. Aww poor little man - doing the daycare thing can be hard - I remember Louis would just scream when I left him...I used to have an attack of the guilts but it was only for 2-3 hours while I went to work...
    Ooh I'm getting excited for christmas as well - I have to go and buy some decorations - we hardly have any!
    Good on you for getting to the gym!!

    omg it's 11.45pm...must get some sleep! Chat later!

    Oh goodness,everyone seems to have so much energy! (or maybe Kris is making up for a lot )

    Kris - OMG on the pulling himself up, and the falling asleep in the high-chair. What are you doing with him - training for a bubba marathon? *g* So jealous about getting away ... did you get a lot of rain up there? Is it making any difference to the lakes / dams?

    Mel - *hugs* and hope you're feeling better. No good with the screaming though.

    OMG I just turned on Sunrise and Mel & Koshie are decked out Beatles-style. Wonder if "a bugs life" would be OK for Pip to watch? I often wonder how much of what I watch is absorbed by him - like the news and those crime shows I love ....

    Yesterday we went to an Oaks Day function at a local winery, lots of fun. Pip chose our sweep tix and out of 4 races we got 2 seconds and a first! So we came ahead in the races! Good on ya Pip! And the best thing I think was that except for the people sitting on our table, most people didn't even know he was there - he was a quiet, well-behaved little bubba. Its great now that he holds his own bottle, cause he had his bottle while I had my lunch!

    Erin - good at you with the gym - any exercises you're doing in particular? Or just all-over workouts? I really wish my gym had childcare

    Our Mum's group is meeting at a park today, I just don't have the energy to cook so I'm going to take some drinks. But they just rang and it now 1:30 not 12:30. I'll walk down with the dog, she'll enjoy the walk.

    Heya,
    The spag bol sauce does have tomatoes and onion in it, so it might be that. She does ok with just plain chicken tho. Will hold off it for a while. Shes happily nude on the floor atm. She went well with physio yesterday...2 weeks till we see the specialist. Shes just shuffled on her back to the floorboards...hope she doesnt wee on the rug, I wish I could work out what to put down that was big and absorbant, atm i just use one of those huggies change mats.
    Yesterday was a long day. The concert was great, although I felt bad by the end of the night. We didnt get home til 1am. Liv was so good, she slept all the way home. i had to get up early tho to clean up and do her bottles, but luckily she slept from 11am til 1pm, so I slept too. I think I have a bit of sinus and probably the start of some infection...a bit of yellow gunk coming out. So I am happy to do nothing.
    Hope you are all well, thanks for the meat tips.
    Take care
    Love melissa

    Hi girls,

    Well we have had an insanely boring few days. It has been pouring with rain here for a week now and every time I think of going out it starts to rain. Went to mums for a few hours yesterday to get out of the house and then did the groceries today, wooohooo what a socialite I am!! I have been sooo bored but without a car, there's not much I can do in the rain. DH is home today, so not too boring today, though he's studying for an assignment, so he's not been that much more fun that the other days, LOL!
    Our friend had a baby on Wednesday. A liitle boy they named Lucas. I can't wait to see him!! Another new bubba...Lil's just growing too too fast!

    Jen, I hear you on bubs getting too heavy to rock to sleep. I usually have to rock Lily to sleep and she's pushing 9kg. Sooo not good for the posture! She is starting to go off to sleep in her cot by herself a few times a day, and she tends to sleep better at those times too. Though her day sleeps seem to have improved alot anyway, she's sleeping for at least an hour at a time now, better than 40mins or less!
    Tell me about fluffy rugs, ours is wool and just won't stop shedding. Lily ends up with mouthfulls of it if she manages to get onto it. Or she finds dust bunnies in the nooks and crannys to eat...mmmm yuck!!
    Lucky you having a spa weekend. When you go just think of how green with jealousy everyone is! Me included!!! I hope you enjoy it....then again how could you not enjoy a spa weekend??

    Erin, LOL at not having more kids yet....I wouldn't want more if I had an 11mth old, 2.5yr old and 6mth old!
    Good on you for going to the gym. I have been trying every day, booking LIly into the childcare, then having to cancel that day because of the stupid rain.

    Mel, sorry to hear Olivia has been giving you a hard time. I hope her teeth pop up soon. Hubbies have no idea what we go through do they? They think they get to see it when they're home, but it's nothing compared to doing it all day everyday, no matter how you feel. A walk would probably be a good idea for you. I go to the gym without Lily when ever DH is home and even though when I go normally she's in the childcare there, I feel like I get more of a break when DH has her. I think because for that hour or so I don't need to be at her beckoned call, IYKWIM.
    I am giving Lily a bit of chicken once a week or so at the mo. Just a little bit cooked up with her veggies like a soup and blended down. She loves it. The upset tummy was probably caused by the tomatoes, they are not reccommended to be given to bubs before about 9+mths I think.
    As for the nudy time carpet saver, you could use a cot mattress protector.
    I hoep all goes well with the specialist this time. Hopefully she can get out of her harness.
    Sounds like the concert was fun, and yay that Olivia was soo good for you.
    Sorry for feeling [email protected] too, I hoep you get over it quickly.

    Kris, yay on Dylan sleeping better! He sounds like such an active little man. Lily is only just sorting out how to make herself sit up unsupported. Though she still tumbles over after a minute or so. yep the oatbrits are with the other cerials in the supermarket, they look like vitabrits (the packet).

    Kaz, LOL at pip picking your tickets and winning for you! He's your little lucky charm. Sounds like you had fun! I've been trying to teach Lil how to hold her own bottle too, but she's a lazy bugger. It's not that she can't do it, she just doesn't want to, the little monkey.

    Ok gotta go, bye bye!!

    Mel - try getting a couple of old mattress protectors and sewing them together, or alternatively get a flannel-backed tablecloth and put it flannel-up.

    cool, i might get a flannel table cloth, that sounds like a great idea. She loves her nudie time, just that she pees everywhere. We ended up going outside after she peed on the changemat. I popped her on a towel under our apple trees and she discovered the grass....and it went in her mouth... it was so cute. Still feel like crud, but at least olivia was good today.
    As for the tomatoes, i didnt know about that. the book that i got the recipe from says it is suitable from 6-9 months. Anyone recommend a good book for me?
    Got to go....my nose is running away from me!!!!
    have a great weekend
    Love Melissa

    LOL Melissa, at least her pee just runs onto the floor. I have to watch Charlie like a hawk if he's having nappy free time. If he's not on his tummy then watch out!!! Ha, most the time he sprays himself in the face.
