    Hi guys,
    Just wondering if anyone has gone on to normal milk? I am thinking of getting coco some goats milk, andwill water it down first, but just interested what others are doing. I think I'll give her a morning and night bottle, and then just water during the day. Do you think that is enough?
    hope everyone is well xox

    Well I've got a light-weight baby apparently. Maddy is 'only' 8.435kg which is the 25th percentile. I'm not worried and neither is the MCHN even if she is little/petite (which I just don't see because I'm had people tell me she is 'chubby or well covered) because Maddy is so far ahead of her milestones other than weight. She eats well and has advanced motor skills & language apparently; oh and the mchn is also impressed that we're still breastfeeding at this point. She wants me to beef her up a bit on the healthy fats like avocado & also to introduce either oats with her toast for breakfast, or some weetbix.

    How're you all going? Sorry I've been so lax in my personals, haven't really had much spare time since we got back from Dads. DH was home today with the start of the flu Maddy & I have had for a few days. Parents in Law get back on Thursday afternoon.

    Hi Becka

    Good to hear. Ive learnt not to take much notice of what the Nurses say anymore. I was told Callum was underweight ( 8.5 some thing KG) and he isnt 910 months yet but He has put on and thats all im worried about. I have increased his foods and he seems to be eating them and I was also told to put him on weetbix and he loves them. He has 1 1/2 everyday. Going to try him on some poridge tomorrow that will be fun. He is doing everything he is meant to but my nurse is abit of a b*tch so Im not letting anything bother me unless I need to be. Im sure your bundle of joy is fine. Good luck and let me know how she goes with the weetbix. I also add alittle pears in it to give it some taste. Good luck.

    Meg
    Nurse told me a couple of months ago that you should give milk at about 12 months and water it a little. But she also told me to add a little to his cerial so I give a dash. Coco would be fine to have milk now. Id try her alittle and see how she goes.
    Good luck.
    Well had good day today, went shopping and had santa photos for Callum, but have to go back as I want Melissa and Callum together. Ill post soon . Will let you all know. How you all been???? Bit quiet today. For all ppl in syd west its going to be 40o tomorrow...a hot one.

    Well take care

    Bec,
    Ivy is only on the 10th centile for her weight. I think Maddy looks gorgeous and perfect!
    Yay that she is well advanced!

    Only three more sleeps until Ivy and Noah turn one.
    Our appointment to the eye specialist went well. Ivy is short sighted and will need glasses but he is happy to put it off for a little while.

    Noah on the other hand is long sighted and will probably need glasses just before school.

    Noah and Ivy had physio today and that went really well too. Ivy is cruising the furniture and has alot of bumps for her trouble. She is a bit floppy in her tone, so she has to wear this little figure eight band around her legs to hold her in the right position.Noah is content just to commando crawl around. He is pretty stiff in his back so we have excercises to try and loosen him up. He did really well today though and the physio was pleased.
    Ivy is sick again. Started last night and today she is throwing off high temps and is very lack lustre. Nothing has presented itself yet but I am thinking it's her ears again. I guess time will tell.

    So, that's us!

    Thanks Missy & Tiff! I'm truly not worried because nobody knows Maddy like I do...she's just fine and eats like a horse. She's so active, so I just think she has a fast little metabolism and probably works off everything she eats.

    Tiff {{{{{{HUGE hugs}}}}}} to you & the family. The twins have had such a difficult time of it, but your beautiful optimistic outlook is so inspiring. I finally got a chance to look at the photos and you have two little stunners on your hands. Hope little Ivy starts feeling better soon.

    Missy, thanks for the advice about the weet-bix and food. I might just try Maddy on some weet-bix tomorrow and see how she goes...I like your suggestion of adding some fruit to sweeten it. Maddy loves her jars of the Organics 'Creamy oats with fig & sultana' so much that I went out and bought the packet so I could make it up each morning. She doesn't like the lumpiness of it, but best of luck with Callum on the oats/porridge tomorrow! *LOL*

    How are all of you other lovely ladies & your bubbas going?

    Hello Ladies,

    Sorry I haven't been on much. Been feeling a little drained and had family stuff to do.

    Had my brothers 30th party on the weekend. Logan loved it, but would not sleep the entire time we were there, I think he must have thought he was going to miss out on something. He got on well with all the children that were there, they had a play in a little pool (with a tiny bit of water) and he loved all the kids splashing water on him. But he got so upset when I took him out, kept trying to crawl back and crying when I wouldn't let him. I think I have a water baby on my hands . He gave most of the people big sloppy kisses and didn't get upset by the men either, like he had previously, he adored one of my brothers friends and even gave him a kiss good bye LOL..

    I have been giving Logan some cows milk watered down, he will drink it but I have to hold his sippy cup for him or he tries to pour it in his hair. Logan hasn't been too interested in solids still. He will try most things, but will eat more at daycare and doesn't seem that keen when I try to feed him at home. Maybe because he knows he can still breastfeed at home?

    Sorry no personals at the moment. Slack, I know!
    I hope you're all well. Take care

    Mel, great to hear from you and good to hear Logan is doing well!!
    Beck, Coco is prob almost the same weight as MAddy. Tilly was the same. Tilly is still the same and just has a speedy metabolism. Coco eats everythignand the only big part on her is her tummy!!! Very cute!!
    Anwyay, gotta get moving, time for the daily routine to start. My back is soooo sore that Im going to start back at the chiro regularly. Just don't think I can cope with starting to work (waitressing at mums cafe once a week) with a sore back.
    HOpe everyone is doing well. Tiggy, I hope Ivy gets well soon, the poor chooken. (My nephew is 3 and call's chickens chookens...very cute). Very exciting about the bday!! We are on 3 days now too!!!! Bring on friday, can't believe my baby will be one. Where did the time go??????????

    Hi all, well I didnt get a chance to give Callum poridge today as I forgot about it, LOL so he had 1 1/2 weetbix, 1/2 toast and a slice of cheese. Little Piggy So will try tomorrow. He slept through last night and didnt get up till 7:30 so I was very happy. He also had all his Bottle 180 mls and had some play time and has just gone back to bed. He is being such a good boy although He is going through that stage where everything is mummy. Have to be close to him or he starts crying. Its cute I guess.LOL.

    Tiff You seem to be very good with your children and stronge. That is so nice to see. If having glasses is the worst that happens to your kids then Id be happy with that. I said the same Thing about Melissa when she had to have glasses but then she had to have the op on her eye, Toncels out dont know how you spell it and the apendic's out as well. All in the space of 5 years. Alot for a 5 year old to have. Im so sorry Ivy is sick I hope she is well soon hun!!!

    Bec Your welcome about the weetbix. Im sure she will love it. Callum isnt really into the lumps as well. But we get there. All the best and let me know.

    Melinda My Son Callum is the same with the pool. I took him to the pools on Sat and he loved it so much we were there all day. Very cute.

    MegCoco look like she is very well with the weight. Just look at those checks. Georgous!!!! Sorry to hear you have a sore back. Hope you feel better soon!!!

    Ive just Put Callums Christmas Photo up on my photo sight if you would like to see. I love it.

    Well all have a great day, keep cool as its going to be 40 degree in Syd West!!!!

    Hooorooo xx

    Wow Missy - I think you must win this months most post award. It's great to read about your son and daughter.
    Meg - Marnie has been drinking straight cow's milk for around a month now. I've never heard of watering down the milk before?
    phone is ringing i'll be back later!

    I know.. I just love Posting about the family and talking to you all. Alot of my friends have kids but older so it nice to chat to you all.

    Meg
    I love photos of the kids. Yes do get some done so I can have a peek. Poor little pet I hope she feels better soon. Good luck. Im not going out today thank God. Way to hot!!!

    Talk soon.

    Talking

    Right... finally have Marnie to sleep and can try to post a decent message.
    As I said before Meg - Marnie has been on cow's milk for around a month. I didn't have any trouble at all - but she had had it on her Weet Bix from around 7 months. My CHN had never said to water it down and I also read about it in Baby Love and Robin Baker didn't recommend it either. Having said that I don't know about goat's milk so it might be different. Good luck!
    Has any other mum got a baby that loves to "KISS"with their teeth? My shoulders,belly and back are red raw from Marnie gnawing at me with her teeth! I try to stop her but it's usually too late.I put her down after the "KISS"and say no Marnie but next time I am holding her or lying down with her she's back at it. She's very affectionate with other babies and I am afraid she might do this with them. ANy suggestions are most welcome!
    I have my netball grand final tonight - I am so nervous but more worried about how hot it will be. It's around 45 degrees here today (gotta love the bush!) I went out for lunch with my pregnant girlfriend and I can only imagine how hot she is feeling.
    I can't remember any of your posts (I thought baby brain went away) so I would like to say hello to everyone and hope your week is going well.
    Have a great week!

    I LOVE all the new pics you all have up! Sooo cute!! I took some pics of Abby for Christmas this Sunday! I'll put a link at the bottom of this post!

    Well, I tried putting some cows milk in with the breastmilk (like 90% breasmilk and 10% cows milk) and Abby threw up more than I have ever seen! This is the second time I tried it and the second time I got the same conclusion...vomit. So I think it will be soy milk for Abby-girl. My baby and her sensitive stomache! Oh well! HEr top teeth are in enough for me to feel 2 of them so I hope the others break through soon! She was up evey hour last night! YAWN! I have been feeding her lots of yogurt and cheese (which she is fine with btw) to try to bulk her up a bit. She really doesnt look like a lightweight, but she weighs less than Maddy, so she must be in the 20% ? or so I guess. I think you are smart to not weigh Coco so much Meg. Less worrying and everything! I'll have to do personals later or maybe tomorrow. I have been sick with a cold and so busy with my cling baby. Her birthday party is Sunday and my cousin is visiting from Ohio Friday so I have to clean yet! Busy busy busy!

    Here's pics of Abby's Christmas photos! Christmas Abby!
