    Hey Missy

    between shaking her head, chomping down the second that something gets into her mouth and grabbing onto everything with her hands she's caused a fair amount of nipple damage!! The LC suggested a day or two rest for my nipples, so am expressing milk and he's feeding her with a syringe. We were told no bottles as fake teats can confuse them until breastfeeding is established (they're a totally different sucking motion, and easier than breast, so many babies won't go back to breast after bottle), and I'm not to feed her as she needs to associate mummy with BBs. Syringe is easier than cup feeding, and ensures that she gets more food.

    back on the pump for me!! Feel like a freakin' cow getting milked all the time!!!

    Hey SW

    Oh I know what you mean about being a cow...lol. I feel the same. Ive been expressing for about a week (as I didnt think he was getting enough as he was wanting boob every 1-2hrs) and yesterday when I went to the clinic they told me to try to BF again so I got home and tried but he didnt want a bar of my BB anymore. He was pulling on it, not attaching, and screaming. He is use to the bottle now. It doesnt take long for them to get use to bottles. Im alittle pee'd off with myself but at least he still is getting Breast milk. Thanks for clearing that up for me. Oh and I hope your nipples feel better real soon. Good luck.

    morning all........

    when i was in nicu the twins had to have bottles (weith EBM or formula) we had no choice. whilst there i was worried about them refusing the boob, as most bottles are easier to drink from. the LC said that in her 30 odd years of experience she has never found a baby that cann't learn to drink from both. she said its the teat that is the problems not the bottle. she said if you do both than to get a teat that is harder to drink from than a boob that way the will find the boob easier and perfer it. I have the Dr Brown bottles & premi teats, they are the same size as regular teats but tiny holes and they need to suck quite hard to get milk to come out. so now i have no problems with doing 1/2 boob and 1/2 bottle feeds during the day.
    I just thought this bit of information may help thost who want it.

    All my boys are asleep ATM. time for a computer break.

    Missy your family pics are great. I need to take more i feel bad that i hardly have any pics of us all as a family. by now we had hundreds when isaac was born.

    has anyone here thought about birth control.......I don't know what to do, i don't like the pill, latex makes me itchy & Depro makes you fat! i really don't want any more babies (unless we win millions in Lotto) DH is getting chopped but not till early next year. so what happens till then? any suggestions......DH won't hold out forever

    love kristy

    Anastasia - I don't think I used shampoo on DS until he was a few months old. Just used the top to toe bath wash with him, but we have different stuff for DD because she is peeling so much (being overcooked and all )

    Kristy - I don't know what we will be doing about birth control either - haven't discussed it really. Probably just the love gloves I suppose.. lol... I hate taking the pill and we probably wouldn't be doing a lot of it anyway TBH... PMSL!!!!!!!!! A packet might last us a year.. pmsl..

    We will probably start trying for our next one in April or something next year.... then DH will go get the snip..

    Went to the doc this morning because of a swelling in my back, so I have a haematoma (sp?) from where the spinal block went in, but it should go away in time. Also put me back on stronger drugs for my sciatic pain and referred me to a physio.. I hate physios and stuff, but I HAVE to be able to walk because its driving me crazy!!!!

    Missy - I can't wait for the time that DD and DS are asleep at the same time!! DS is at day care today, so thats good... its easier to focus on a newborn than it is a toddler and a newborn!!!!

    I know what you guys mean about taking pics.. we've hardly taken any of DD, and we had LOTS by the time DS was a week old... whoops.. hehe

    Oh and BTW - Missy - your pics are gorgeous

    Hi all,

    just a quick one from me as Isabel is very unsettled since last night and I really haven't had any sleep. I really don't know what is wrong with her!! She hasn't slept since 8:30am this morning and only has cat naps. I'm so tired that I'm cranky and feel like a bad mum

    Missy - Love your family pics sweet they are just gorgeous.

    Mel - I hope your back gets better soon sweet, it's horrible when you can't do anything hey.

    Tasia - I don't use anything on Isabel's hair just the water. I have used some J&J moisturiser but not much.

    Hey one of my friends just told me to give Izzy some lukewarm water to help her belly is this true?? Does it ease their sore bellies???

    Mez - if she has wind, then sugar in water can help ease it out. Thats if she will take it. We are using Infant's friend at the moment for DD and its bloody fantastic.. she has been so settled today (after a couple of unsettled days) and is still sleeping after going to sleep about 11.30... its great!!!!! Last night she slept really well too (we started the stuff yesterday arvo).

    So if its wind that is upsetting her, maybe try some Infant's friend before the water? I know we introduced water for DS when he was about 4 weeks old?

    AND YOU ARE NOT A BAD MOTHER!!!!! *slap slap*

    You are a good mother because you CARE about how she is and want to help - they don't come with instructions

    Hi Gudism,

    Just wanted to say congrats on your little daughter! Hope everything is well, she looks beautiful!

    I had a little girl as well on 8th July via emergency caesar and she is just such a gorgeous poppet, very placid. A piggy for her food, my boobs are killing me, but she is just so lovely I can't believe I helped make her!

    Anyway take care, can't believe they grow so quickly !

    Mez - You're not a bad mother!!!!
    Good luck with your DD. I hope she's just having a bad day and settles for you.

    Kristy - I'll just go on the pill again. Works well for me as I like to know exactly when I'll get my period and that I can skip it. I like to be incharge as much as I can. Lolol.

    Tasia - We use that Johnsons & johnsons Bedtime bath stuff for his baths and his hair gets washed it that too. I've been using Johnsons & Johnsons baby lotion after his baths too.
    Wow. I can't believe you are wanting to get pg by the end of the year. Scary. I must admit I have times when I miss having Hayden in my belly.

    Mel - You poor thing. I hope your back feels better soon. Your DD sounds like she's going great guns. Whoohoo!!

    Kell - Whoa. I hope the tests come back and it's nothing serious and that it doesn't get worse. I wanna do my birth story too but I'm not sure yet. Hayden's hair is starting to lighten up, he kinda looks like he's got frosted tips. It's cute. I think he'll have the same colour hair as me and DS#1.

    Missy - I'm trying to do the same thing with Hayden with the holding and picking him up all the time. It's so hard, hey. My DP always wants to cuddle and hold him, so it's hard for me to tell him not to aswell. Lol.


    So we got Hayden measured and weighed, etc today. He's put on 427grams in a week. So he weighs 4452g. Whatta fattie. JUST JOKINGGGGGGG!
    HC: 37.5cm and Length: 53cm now.
    The nurse said to wipe his gunky eyes with salt water on a tissue, so we'll try that.

    I so thought I was going really well with my emotional crap lately until last night and this morning. It's like as soon as I start crying everything just makes me keep crying. Then DP doesn't seem like he cares.
    DS#1 always makes sure I'm alright though. He likes to protect mummy and tells me he'll handle it when I'm upset. Lol. It makes me smile.

    Hope you're all doin' great.

    Hi Girls

    Just a quick one as Tara is due to feed any minute and havent even had a shower today and my bb's are killing me!

    SW - honey I agree I dont think there is anything wrong with expressing and using the bottle, I think your LC is a bit too our cautious I expressed for 4 days and now back on the bb's only and Tara has no issue feeding at all. Also if you use a dummy thats a different type of sucking too. Is today any better sweetie?

    Tasia - we use Cetaphil wash only in the bath and after QV Cream to massage if needed. I have very dry skin so thats all I have been recommended to ever use on my babies. We wash Tara's head with the Cetaphil water with a clean washer, thats fine. We only started using shampoo with Julia around 9 months when we were sure it was ok for her skin and then we used only Avent milk one. She is ok with Huggies one now nearly two years old and also the bath wash by J&J but was too harsh earlier. Tasia will email pics to you tonight honey.

    Off to have a long awaited shower!

    Missy- Thanx sweety I will go & buy QV now even my SIL recommended it to me, she said J&J drys out skin & it did to my poor Jonathan but only little bit on his legs. But on his forehead it's like he is peeling why??

    Mel- Oh u poor thing, how is ur bubba going?

    Mary- Thanx sweety, How r u & Izzy going?

    Tenny- Yep I got balls lol. I just miss being pregnant, the kicking & all, but not the last months though. So it would be good to get pregnant again before the end of the year, i might get pregnant ASAP or I it will take long or I could never get pregnant again. Who knows, we'll see wat happens

    Belle- thanx sweety
