    Sara, I have gotten frustrated keeping an eye on Logan's feeds, but most days every 3 - 4 hours day or night. Last night he did very well and didn't feed for about 10hours at night since he slept lol, and he's been a bit fussy today as well.. But usually he's waking up 3 or 4 times a night for a feed. So at least Abby isn't like him



    Dani, I do try to keep bibs with me, but I've been a bit "low" lately so very muddle-headed. I was kicking myself that I had forgotten his bib. Felt like such a fool LOL. Oh well, I now make sure I always have a few bibs and changes of clothes in his bag for when we go out. But thank you for letting me know.
    We went to a sleep clinic thing yesterday. Tonight is a bad night, he won't let me put him in his cot. I don't want to make him since he's still a little sick I think, so I'm gonna go give him a cuddle for a while.

    Night

    Hey Melly! I hope Logan sleeps well for you tonight! A little cuddle time cant hurt! Poor little thing, does he still have a fever?


    Hey my sister just joined the November thread! She is "eddiesmom". Her name is Audra! I think she will like chatting with other November mummies!

    hi guys.
    Sarajo, I can't help, our feeds are all over the place!! I probably feed her once or twice in the night, then when I get up in morning (plus solids) then twice through the day, then solids nad milk at 5pm, then bottle at 7pm. Im going to put her to bed early tonight as our nights are just getting worse and I have a feeling she is just overtired at night and that is the problem. It all seemed to start when she cut out her last sleep at afternoon time. Mum said night terrors are common in overtired babies, so maybe that's it. She woke up screaming 3 times last night and I could NOT resettle her. I ended up feeding most of the night and didn't sleep.
    I will try anything, so tonight she's going to bed at 6pm instead of 7pm and I'll see if that makes any difference. I've had her in her cot this morn for over an hour and still no sleep, I think again she is just way overtired.
    gotta run, time to get some cleaning done
    PS delivery guy left a message in foyer "dear customers, I have to leave the papers near the letterboxes now as someone has complained"!!! Why he didn't leave them there always is beyond me, they're undercover and only about 10 metres away from front door. Thank goodness, just hope he keeps it up. And it was lucky, I JUST got Coco to sleep before he arrived, and would have SPEWED if he'd woken her. xo

    Ooohhh...ok, off and about again today. We're off to iceskating again as we had so much fun last Thursday.

    YAY for NSW winning last night!

    Hope you're all doing well...Maddy's teeth are still bothering her so she isn't sleeping overly well and she's so clingy still. Didn't want a bar of Daddy, only Mummy when we were at my Dad's last night.

    Beck, Have fun iceskating!!!
    Sarajo, good to hear your sister has joined, I am suprised it's taken her so long, with you loving it so much!! Had you told her about it? I actually have not told any of my friends or family as I want to have my own space!! bit selfish??
    Mel, hope you're feeling better soon. I think being a mum is alot of up and down's particularly in the beginning. I have been having a huge rollercoaster of a month, feeling depressed sometimes, then good others. I have to remind myself to appreciate my little ones and not be too stressed. This is easier said than done, particularly when I am getting no sleep. If you're getting up to Logan 3 or 4 times, that is going to tire you out. I hope you get some well needed rest today. Anway, I will think of you when I am up at all hours with Coco!! Maybe we should come on and chat!! And feel free to come and talk about your feelings here anytime. have you checked out the thread on depression? I have been there a couple of times, it's good to have people in the same situation who understand what you're going through.
    have a good day everyone oxox

    Hey All,
    Hope you all had a great night,
    Meg – Jett was doing the exactly the same as darling Coco, the same. I can’t believe how alike their sleeping patterns are. I really hope that you get into the sleep school soon. Jett was waking like Coco screaming and I didn’t know what was going on, he has stopped doing it so maybe they outgrow it??
    My mum said she thinks Jett gets to cold when he sleeps so I started putting and extra blanket on him and that seemed to work. I know how you feel, that was the main reason the I stopped BF cause I was so tired from getting up every hour to him, I am just lucky that DH would do the night feeds early on for me as he had just finished work. I
    Sarajo – I feed Jett every 4 hours or as close to as I can. When I was at the sleeping school they changed him from 3 to 4 hourly feeds, he cracked them for the first week but now he can do it. Everyday is always different cause it depends what time he gets up but it goes along the lines of:
    Up at 8am, nappy change then feed of 240ml play for a bit
    Sleep then feed at 12pm of 240ml play for a few hours
    Sleep then feed at 4pm of 240ml play for a few hours
    Maybe a little sleep then solids at 6pm bath at 6:30pm
    Feed at 7pm then bed at 7:30pm, that is the plan anyway.
    I have just started to give him some breaky at about 9am of mashed apple we will see how we go on that.
    I wouldn’t really worry too much, she doesn’t have as much as Jett each feed but she makes up by having more feeds, all of my girlfriends with little girls say that they feed like that too.
    Hope this helps??
    Anyway I am of to Mother's Group today we are going out for our monthly lunch, Jett is staying at home with Daddy's cause if he dosn't he won't get to play with him before he goes to work.
    Take Care

I love it, so nice to have freedom and be with people in the same sitch. pity we can't all get together (the dec mums), one day hopefully!!
    Trying to get coco down for a nap now, ah the joys. It's always either feeding or sleeping time!!

    Hi ladies!

    Thank you for the info on feeding, it does help! I used to give abby more milk less often and then the gastro specialist tole me less more often so she wouldnt spit up so much, and since then she wont even take entire bottles. Maybe due to her teething? Sometimes she only takes a measly 60 ml!!! Oh well! Well I gotta run, I'll try to get personals later! I have to watch a 10 yr old today...school's out and the mom has to work!

    Everyone have a GREAT day!!

    Hi girls!!

    Have had a crazy couple of days..especially yesterday. In the morning i went with a friend to the michael hill jeweller one day 'silly sale'.some of the prices were unbelievable!!they had stock in the window that was only $1 or $5 or $9(rings/pendants with a small diamond in them, baby bracelets, earrings, gold, silver, all sorts)there was a cue but we got there an hr before the doors opened and were about 10 people back..the was a beautiful ring(it looked like JLo's engagement ring from ben affleck)it was white gold, with the big pink princess cut stone in the centre, with a triangle diamond either side...$9!!!i wanted it for my sister's 21st(i haven't got her anything and its on sunday)but of course when i got in, it had been sold..they had the same thing in silver with cubic zirconia's for only $30(down from $89) so i got her that instead. I also got a pair of cubic zirconia drop earrings for $9(for my baby sis's 17th) and a pair of sapphire studs(set in gold) for me!!and they were only $19..i swear if i had more money i would've bought the whole shop!!!it was so worth the wait!!!!
    Then after that we rushed straight to possum cottage(sleep school).We had to go back since now that owen can settle himself to sleep in his own bed, he needs to learn to resettle during the day so that he sleeps for longer than 45mins at a time..was a horrid day and he resettled only once after 1/2hr of crying and we finally wrapped him..ugh!!so i was so stressed once i got home..and probably won't get much of a chance to practice it today anyway, as my mum is coming up for the day and will more than likely not put him down!!!
    You have all been chatting too much for my to do personals, but i was glad to see all is going well for leanne and drew.
    Also Dani, i hope your cousin's family is coping and i'm thinking of them and you..i can't begin to imagine how hard it must be for all involved.
    Well i'll talk to you all soon.
    Have a great day all!!

    Wow Christie, what a sale!! Well done on the bargains!
    How was possum cottage? My MIL gave me teh routine they use there and told me to book in, however it's too far from here so Im booking into tresillian instead which is close by.
    Mind you, I decided yesterday to a) give Coco some extra food, so i gave her a 200ml formula bottle at 2pm (she wouldn't have had anything normally then) and she drank it all. Then I put her to bed at 6pm and she slept until 2am. that's 8 hours so Im thinking she was either hungry, overtired or both. I am therefore going to start her on her third solids meal today. She was having breakfast and dinner and two milk feeds in the middle and I just don't think I have enough breastmilk to sustain her for the night.
    anyway, must go and get her back to bed
    have a great day

    Where is everyone today??
    I was planning on starting Coco on her third solid meal today, but she's slept right through lunch! Looks like it will be arvo tea instead! Bit of a relief because she only had 20 minutes this morn.
    hope everyone's having a good day
    love

    Sorry Meg, we're around...I just had my Mum around to watch Maddy while I had my driving lesson. Was better today, hopefully I shouldn't need more than 6 lessons all up. Had 2 already and he said I won't need nearly as many as most of his students. *does a little dance* That's good because I can't really afford to keep having weekly lessons at $40 a pop for months, plus I need my licence as I hate being stuck at home all day.

    Missy Moo is a bit off colour today. She wouldn't sleep before lunch but then again, she hasn't pooed in two days so perhaps it's making her a little grumpy? *L*

    How is everyone else doing?

    Hey Beck, I hope you get your licence really soon!! So you're going for your P's? Or L's? I guess with the driving it must be P's. It will be so great for you to have the freedom!
    Hope Maddy is feeling better. Coco had such a super sleep at lunch that Im hoping she has an arvo nap, other wise she'll be going from 1.30pm until bed...too long!
    Anyway, not much more happening here. Didn't do much today, just a walk to the local shops where I ended up buying a dress!!! Naughty naughty!! But it's so cute and Im going to wear it out to dinner tonight!!

    Hey ladies! Abby had a restless night! <yawn> she was up at 12:30, 2:00, 5:00, 6:00 and she is still up! I was going to watch that 10 yr old again but she just called and cancelled. I feel bad because her mom said she was dizzy and yesterday she didnt drink much water or anything at ALL and I should have made her drink more, and her mom said "maybe she is dizzy because she didnt drink enough yesterday!" Oh well, its better anyway today cause Abby need to rest and with a kid her, she gets all excited and doesnt want to sleep! I just feel guilty.

    My other sister is comming tonight to meet Abby!!!! Wohhoooo! She hasnt seen her yet, and she is flying in tonight at 9:30 and staying till Tuesday! YIPEE!

    ni mbbbbbbbbbbb <Abby loves to type! lol

    Anyway, I better go feed this little munchkin!

    Hey Ladies,
    Have been MIA today as I have been into town to get my Aunty and Uncle a card, as my cousin passed away last night at about 10pm, I was ready for it as it has been nearly 1 week since the accident. Good thing is that he is an organ donor so he will still live on, cause 25 is way too soon to be taken to heaven.
    Anyway then I went to my friends place, she was the one that introduce me to BB. (Think her name is BecG on BB??) I took a bee sting from Brumby’s over there, not really good when I am suppose to be losing this belly, But I walked to her place!!!
    Christie – Do you cook your pears and apples together? I have just been doing one fruit, maybe I could mix them??? Glad to hear that Owen sleeping has improved sounds like none of us have had great sleepers, Jett is pretty good now.
    Thank god for sleep school..
    Meg – Good on you, I am sure you will look like a hot Mumma in your new dress, you deserve it Meg. Glad to hear Coco’s sleep is getting better, I bet it is making you feel better too. I know when Jett started getting better I started getting better.
    Oh, mother’s group was great, I was childfree.
    My mum doesn’t drive so I ran her to Kmart and by the time we got back I was running late for lunch and Jett needed a sleep and DH was going to work early.
    Mum just said leave him there so that was great (she always comes and takes him, he just loves hanging with his nanna).
    Then I went back to get him and she said stay for dinner so that was even better.
    Sarajo - How exciting about your sister, hope you have fun catching up, I am sure you will. Don’t feel bad about the drink thing; if a 10 year old is thirsty I am sure they will drink. Go Abby you computer chicky…
    Good please let Jett’s teeth come through soon, they are really troubling him.
    Anyway I said to myself that I was going to have an early night and it is now 10:24 pm not early!!!
    Bedtime for this Mumma.
    Goodnight Ladies

    Hi all. Thought I would let you all know I am back around this weekend.

    Drew just tried the Banana and Pear Farex, didn't seem to mind it. He acted better with it then the plain stuff that even the dog wouldn't eat (dont blame either of them).

    Will catch up later if anyone is around.

    Hi Girls

    Dani, my thoughts are with your family..losing someone is always hard.but you're right, its wonderful he is an organ donor.. i cook the pears and apples seperate and freeze them but sometimes mix them up when i defrost so could probably cook them together..ah well..Owen's sleeping has def improved!!he slept thru last night!!he went to bed at 4.30(DH put him down)slept til 7.30 when i got him up put him in his jammies and sleeping bag and gave him a feed, then straight back to be at 8.20 then slept til 5.15, up for a feed, back down til 7!!!and even then he got up til 8.30 and is still asleep over an hr later!!!unbelievable!!!so am pretty happy with sleep school too!!! Don't grandparents just dote on their grandbabies!!my parents live 2hrs away but mum came up for the day yest and didn't put owen down!!!but he recognises her too now so its really lovely..

    Sarajo, have a wonderful time with your sis.. i bet she'll be thrilled to see abby!!

    Owen's awake..gtg
