    we'll join you with the woo hoo. Ella's moving forward. it's not exactly crawling, more moving forward by rolling side to side, to get what she wants. We are also encouraging it (also first time excited mummy). She's so much happier being able to get to what she wants!

    [ Ash & Ella


    Hey im pretty stoked that Vicky is crawling backwards...i reckon its also exciting no matter how many kids you have and yep it may mean trouble is starting but it also means we have a little more time during the day to do things without them needing us to constantly amuse them.

    Hi all,
    Yay Ash and Ella!!
    Lauren- Oh dear, you poor thing, no caffeine!! I hope it all works for you and Ash.
    Things are not looking good here at the moment. Ty has been sleepy all day (had one two hour nap which is not like him at all) and has been vomiting, including one massive one before bed. We are seeing the GP tomorrow morning. Cross your fingers for me...

    Oh My crawlers.. WOO How exciting!! Share some vids? lol.. I love watching all our bubbies grow

    Lori: hope you have a good night and Ty is ok..

    Had a good day here. Simon and Jacob did the groceries while I stayed home with Miss Livi and Isaac. She was asleep for 2 hours so was nice and quiet.. I ended up taking olivia to the Drs today cus her eyes were just so gunky I think they needed more. and yes she needs the eye drops Jacob was on.. Poor bubba.. but after 2 doses they were looking better already when she went to bed. Dr also said she had a pink ear. I like my Dr cus he doesn't just hand out anti biotics unless they are really needed and he agreed with me to wait before treating as she is over all very happy and the only indication tohaving a sore ear was her pulling at it..

    gosh what else.. We tuned Olivia forward facing in the car.. We were going to wait but got thr urge yesterday and today she went for her first drive forward facing and did well. Held her neck up just fine and her head didn't flop forward when she went to sleep.. It is going to take some getting used to and I am still not 100% certain she will stay FF LOL. I may feel guilty and turn her back yet..

    I went shopping with just my big man.. Ethan and I had so much fun without the littler ones tagging along Simon went to his parents with the other 3. Poor boy has got the same bug as Olivia and Jacob and feels icky Gotta love him but men are so painful when they are unwell..

    um,, what else.. My mum is coming to stay for a few days **dance** We are having a BBQ lunch on Sunday for Ethan and Simons birthday.. I am surprising Simon with a cake as well as he doesnt know. His Birthday is monday and Ethans wednesday!

    Anyways off to do a little browsing then bedy bies for me...

    Teena: lol.. We talked to fast this month

    Lauren: **shudder** at not being able to have a morning coffee!

    Well Olivia woke at 11:30 and screamed for 40 minutes.. then Jacob woke at 2am but thankfully wasn't yelling. being sick seems to have softened his attitude..

    Looks like Ethan is now getting the gunky eyes GRR.. not sure what the policy is on school and gunky eyes. they are just red at the moment.. not ick stuff so it could just be sleepy eyes.. Am waiting till 8 to make a decision about school..

    I am feeling less then ordinary this morning.. ids love to share everything but their toys

    Morning,
    Teena- just jump back in where we are hun
    Lauren- I am feeling your decaffeinated pain!! You poor deprived thing
    Nic- Bet Olivia looves sitting ff. Ty's not even 8 kilos yet so we are going to be rf for a while yet.
    Well, be careful what you wish for... Ty only woke once last night. And had half a feed and went back to sleep. Only two hours till dr's appointment. The waiting is killing me.
    What position do all the bubs sleep in? Ty's taken to sleeping on his stomach and it scares me, with the SIDS thing.
    I'm sitting here expressing milk atm. I have a staff meeting to go to tomorrow morning, have to leave the house at 6:30 (omg) so I need milk to leave. Hopefully dh can get the day off otherwise it's an early morning drop off at the mil's. And would you believe I expressed a full 150 ml feed last night and then dropped the expreesor and it went all over the kitchen floor... grrrr.
    Hope you all have a good day. i'll jump back on and post our results after we go to the dr's.

    Lori: Olivia has slept on her tummy since she was a week old. She sleeps on a angelcare monitor though so I hav that reassurance. she simply would not settle on her back or side at all..

    Oo Happy 7 months Little man

    I got great sleep yesterday and she slept almost all night. Olivia woke at 10:30 coughing but cuddles from Daddy was enough.. I didn't feed her from 7:30 till 4:30.. Little tired now from my day starting at 4:30 but oh well.. Boys are starting to go feral already!!

    I posted earlier today but the post must not have worked!!! grrrr

    Buzzie - Congrates on Ash crawling. It is really exciting when our bubs develope a new skill. Believe me it is just as exciting with Loren as it was with DD1. Although I found the grandparents not to be as excited, as Loren is grandchild number 4 iykwim. Happy 7months too!!!

    OMG I forgot what I posted last time and my brain is mash.

    Lori - I hope Ty gets better and bummer about spilling your ebm.

    Teena - Hi lovely.

    Hi to everyone else. Boy it is cold and miserable in Brisbane today, I think we are in for our week of winter this week!!!!

    Some advice needed please. Loren's sleeping is going from bad to very bad. I am at my witts end. We have improved day sleeps a lot but night time is just getting me down. I am averaging 3 hours per night for upto 4 nights. She'll throw in a good night every now and then. A good night is 2 wake ups and quick resettles, but a bad night (like last night) is waking every 2 hours from8pm till 4am. I can only seem to settle her by holding her and then putting her down. I have tried not picking her up and just patting her but she gets so irrate that the neighbours can hear her....no jokes she screams and screams. Should I just try the whole control cry thing or just put up with it? Dh thinks I should put her down later at night. What time do your bub's do to bed. From memory I used to put Sara down at 7.30pm, she'd wake for a 9.30 feed and then sleep until 5.30/6am.

    HI Bekz,
    so sorry to hear your having issues at night with Loren. TBH it sounds like what our nights are like so at least you've got company in that. I'm also over it, but can't see what to do really. I'm hopeful that by the time she's 2 she'll be able to sleep for more than 2 hours at a time. I'm kind of facing the same sort of dilemma of whether to try to teach Ella to be able to put herself to sleep.
    I dunno whether the control crying thing would help. I know that Ella wouldn't respond very well to it. Even the comfort settling which is way more responsive (listening to the tone of the cry) I didn't feel would work for her - she's never ever been able to settle herself if she's upset.
    I have the book 'no cry sleep solution' which is a fabulous read, but I was looking for dummy removal techniques at the time and can't recall what she says about the situation you're in. It might be worth browsing thru at the book shop if you can.
    We take Ella to bed with us now. Lovley, altho dunno whether that's creating another problem. I also have a cot in our room, but tbh she's hardly gone in that. Wants the cuddling to settle I think.
    Could you try to implement self-settling strategies in the day sleeps if they're better? I'm just starting to do that now (putting her down awake, stay with her & pat or whatever til she's asleep). Tbh I'd probably rather cuddle her & it's quicker, but I'm getting sick of having to be up to settle in the night time.
    We don't have a very consistent bed time - I try to get her down by 7.30 at the latest, but it really does vary depending on what has happened with other feeds/sleeps during the day. I know the book above says that babies really should be in bed by I think around 7 pm b/c they're wired for it & it should enhance their night time sleep. But who knows. Every baby's different anyway. Is it possible she's getting too much sleep tho in the day? How much does she sleep & how long for ? This age should be 2 longish naps & another catnap (in total). I'm no expert obviously, as Ella's certainly not sleeping well, but those ar emy thoughts for what they're worth.

    Lauren, forgot to say with the caffeine thingy, my LC said it would be OK to have something eg. cup of tea straight after a feed as it would be out of my system by the time I feed her again. Hope this helps!

    BekZ - we've got a screamer at the moment too. Screams and screams like someone's twisting her leg off or something. It's only at night, so I can't quite figure it out. I do recall Tallon having some bad nights at this age.. usually had to do with teeth. Kayla won't always feed when she's like this either, i just have to hold her tight and pat her bum, she eventually goes back off to sleep. I'm hoping it's just one of those things that will pass.

    Will be back later when I have some time

    Oh, and re the controlled crying. i can't see that working when they're already distressed. Seems a bit mean IMO. Kayla is pretty good at putting herself to sleep, so I know if she's needing cuddles to resettle then there's probably something wrong, or she just needs me at that time. It could well be an age thing seeing as a few of us are suffering together! I would put Kayla in our bed, but I worry that Tallon is going to come crashing in and squash her LOL. Her cot is right next to me anyway like an extension of our bed, so it's close enough.

    Bek.. in my opinion controlled crying doesn't work..I have left them to cry when I need to but I won't do it otherwise.. Does she sleep on her tummy or back? when Olivi does have a spac attack as I call it.. I stop trying to put her to sleep.. I turn on lights and get up.. I either just play with her or leave her be and jump on the net or wash dishes lol.. thats what i was doing at 3am the other morning

    Had a good day Olivia wise.. She slept so much (sorry bek will try send you some)

    I am actually too tired to type more. so night night.. Day started at 4:22am.. and no resting 8yawn*
