    we now have a few born in July bubs - so I will kick this off and introduce myself- hope there are few others ready to join me. Comm'on all you July belly buddies ...

    My boys Samuel 2960 (6lb 8.5oz) and Joel 2164gm (4lb 12oz) were born on 1st July - @35wks and 4 days by emergency c/s - though not dramatic .I developed obstetic cholestatis - and they needed to be delivered as there is a risk of stillbirth.Thye were both breech as well. I already lost our daughter (at 26wks gestation) to stillbirth 22 months ago for no known reason.

    They spent 3-4 days in NICU though well and then we got transferred to our local hospital (also where DD was born) and have now spent 15 days in Special care nursery but will be hopefully coming home tomorrow.Basically there establishing feeding and weight gain.Though Samuel was a good size already.

    I am breastfeeding Samuel (well except overnight atm) and Joel is too fond of the bottle - but only having expressed breast milk. I will keep trying him and I have appointment with Lactation Cons Friday to get more ideas and next week she is trying to fit me in for a home visit.

    I hope Samuel and Joel are home safe and sound Trish. What a relief it must be for you.

    I have a feeling I may be in this July thread. I've been super crampy and loads of pressure down there. I feel like I have to walk with my hand between my legs in case she falls out. Whenever she's ready I guess....

    I'm here now!

    My little man, Cooper Harvey, was born on 17 July weighing 3.63 kgs (8 lbs). He was 51.5 cm long and had a head circumference of 35 cm.

    I have posted my Birth Story in the appropriate section.

    We came home yesterday and all is going well so far. I think the BF is going pretty well. I have a lot of milk! Also at Cooper's weigh in yesterday he had put on 150 grams (only lost 140 grams the other day). So he is already past his birth weight!!! The midwife couldn't believe it!

    I have soooooooo much milk!!! And my boobs are soooooo sore (engorged). Ouch!

    I have one boob which is leakier than the other (left) and the other boob (right) is the one which gets more sore and rock hard (usually toward the end of the day).

    Whenever I feed on my right boob I need to put some cloth nappies around my left boob to soak up the milk! Breast pads do nothing at all. One will get soaked in about 2 minutes during a feed.

    And I have to watch when it's coming up to 4 hours as my breast pads are usually soaked through then.

    Fun, fun!

    I don't have as much as a leaking problem but when I'm feed on one side the other leaks a lot - I also express for Joel a few times a day.

    I was told the supply settles down to meet your babes sucking demands and they don't get so hard and sore ...always enough in storage though.

    Mine have settled from first week but when boys still in hospital overnight - they did get hard and sore in the middle of night when I waking to express anyway and 1st thing in morning before I went to hospital.

    Hi Trish and Fee!!

    I thought I'd pop across now too. Danielle was born 9 days early with a weight of 8lb 12oz (3.98kg). We had some trouble with the birth as her shoulders got stuck with her head hanging out (sorry!! DH says it's not a sight you want to see too often!). They ended up twisting her around inside me and pulling her out. Her shoulder bone broke as they did this and that's what they think made her come out. She seems to be fine now - waving her arm around all the time. We ended up staying 6 days in hospital due to her being jaundice and the ped wanting to keep an eye on her arm for a few days and I wasn't in a hurry to get home. I wanted me little girl to be fine first.

    I'm not so sure BF is going well. She's not putting on enough weight. She had a weigh in 2 Friday's ago and she seemed to put on her weight but they didn't take off all her clothes. Last Friday they took off all her clothes and she has actually lost weight. She seems to be full and content after feeding so I'm not sure what's going on. Tomorrow we have another weight in as she shouldn't put on some weight since Friday but if she hasn't we'll have to do a part formula part breast milk feeding. I feel like a bad mother as I'm not giving her enough. I have no real leaking problems but I guess that could be a sign I'm not making enough. I've been checked out and we've been told I'm doing it right so I'm not sure what to think. I guess we'll find out tomorrow!!

    I better go - she's due for a feed again.

    Well done girls on your beautiful babies!!

    Kel - I was told better to offer EBM - maybe express off after she has a feed - as hind milk has more fat etc. and offer her this. Sometimes offering formula can paradoxically decrease your supply further as she sucks less on breast. The more she sucks the more milk there is.It is so hard in beginning I read somewhere last night on BB ... about this issue.Remember you are doing a fantastic job and it takes time.

    Have you tried seeing if LC at your community health centre to ask her advice.

    Trish - I was told on Friday to express if she doesn't seem too fond of BF. I read your post about Joel and Danielle seems to be a bit the same. I managed to get 100ml out of my breasts and fed her that at her last feed and she only took 80ml of that but she seems more alert but content. I don't mind expressing and feeding her it in a bottle if that's the way she wants it. At least she's still getting breast milk - I'm not too keen on the formula idea. We did get checked out by a LC when we were in hospital but if she doesn't put on enough we'll be making an appointment to see her again.

    Great work expressing Kelly - I am happy to do it too-as long as I can - as it is better than formula. Though I know it isn't possible for everyone.

    Joel is taking about 70mls in a bottle.If we give him more he has reflux.

    Samuel (on tube/bottle feeds)was on 87mls for his weight (4hrly) - based on 170mls per kilo per day (divided by 6 feeds) when we left hospital Thursday so sounds like she took what she wants. Did she b/f as well ?

    Trish - I tried to BF her first but she was just mucking around with it and not really sucking much at all. As soon as she has her bottle (twice I've done it now with her taking about 70/80mls each time - 3 hours appart) she's taken the whole thing and seems to be much happier afterwards. Also, thanks for the chat. It's made me feel a bit better about everything.

    Tanya - Lucas is so cute!! I love the pic of him on the arm. Good to hear your feedings are going well.

    Joel is pretty much the same - , hang in there and keep trying you are doing a great job. If she is happy - you are happy and that is what matters at the moment.

    I joined ABA online ($50) a week ago and they sent me the book (worth $34.95) already ... it is free if you join before 31st August.I only had a quick skim through so far but it looks great.

    Tanya - the photo is very cute -did you do it yourselves ?
    We have been co sleeping in morning - it helps settle them a bit longer. I now understand how tiring the first days are - my DH has been up/down more than me though -poor thing. I got to sleep in till 9.30am -he had to go to work. I am so thankful my mum is here helping though. I hope Lucas sleeps a little longer for you.
