    Megan - I am lucky to get up to 2 hours during the day with Avaleigh!! I have her in bed at the moment but she is up on her hands and knees trying to crawl!! AHH I hope she will wear herself out soon and go to sleep. She isnt crying or anything so I will keep her in her cot.

    Dani - I only tried Farex with Avaleigh once or twice and then go in to the good stuff. She wasnt a fan of it and I cant blame her! Have you tried that stuff??!



    I've been giving Avaleigh the rusks and they sure do make a mess hey!! I also gave her a little try of avocado because I had some for lunch and she hates it LOL Wont be trying that one again..

    oh woohoo! I think my little girl has gone to sleep..nope! just checked and she is still awake but slowly getting there

    Ok my little man is 7.35 kg and 68.5cm's long. I cant believe that it wasnt that long ago that he was 48cm and 2.7kg! 6 months goes quick..

    Megan - Tom's sleeps during the day are normally 2-2and a half for morning sleep then afternoon nap is normally 1and half to 2 hours. Occasionally if he is having a grumpy day, i put him down for a quick nap late afternoon, only 20 mins or so. It seems to refresh him for his bath time.

    My MCHN today suggested that you can try the bubs on Cruskits biscuits as they just disolve in the mouth and have a rough texture that they like to play around with. She wasnt too concerned with T not wanting to food - she said he sounds like one of those babies that wont be interested until he can do it himself. DH will say stubborn like his mother..

    thanks everyone about the biscuits i think i will wait a while cos he loves the rusks!
    august_moon_mum Links corrected age is 4 months 1 week but hes pretty much on par with all the 6 month babies i know clever little munchkin

    Has anyone elses bub started coughing for attention? I think someone was talking about it. Link used to squeal to get our attention but now he has started this hacking cough it sounds terrible. When i was at the shops today he was in his pram doing it, he sounded like he was choaking and I look like a bad mum for ignoring it but hes ok hes just learning that he can do it!

    Megan- Link only sleeps maybe 1 1/2 hours if im lucky during the day in 40 min blocks but he seems ok with that so I go with the flow lol

    Mel- :hugs: keep smiling good luck with your DH i hope things settle down soon

    Take care everyone

    Thanks for your routine info guys. It's interesting to see the similarities and differences.

    Mel -:hugs: it must be stressful going on holidays with two young ones, even if you are having a good time. We should do that get-together we all talked about a while back.

    Arrowroots - should be ok choking wise if sucked on, I wouldn't yet just because of the ingredients but that's a personal choice.

    V - Autie is also working hard on the crawl. She's managed one or two forward movements, but it's mostly all backward atm Tonight she couldn't stop herself practising in bed and it took ages to get her to sleep even though she was tired.

    Em - Bad luck about the pram but at least you're doing some exercise unlike a certain lazy a** I know... L All those changes to normality are sure to have affected Tom so don't stress over him being unsettled - you'll soon get things going I'm sure. My niece, now 13m, didn't really start taking solids until she was about 10m and went straight into finger food and normal dinners etc. I understand it can be quite common, especially in BF babies. how'd you go with the pumpsicle? L

    Danielle- Rice cereal is so bland I don't blame them for not being really into it. Having said that, I like the Rafferty's brand as it seems to have more texture. I gave it to Autie as her first food but I soon switched to vegies. When I give it to her now, I mix something (anything!) in with it for flavour. Autie loved food from the get-go so can't really help with how long it will take...sorry.

    Megan - I only get about 2- 21/2 hours out of Autie during the day most days, in three naps. Wow, on the 8.5kg! There's so many of you 8+kg babies! Autumn is only 7.2 and she was 4.5 born! She still has rolls though -hope she's not the short, chubby kind like her mum LOL

    Nay - Yes! Autie started a very fake cough in the last week or so. We call it her Zoolander cough (I think I got the black lung pop) I had the doctor check her chest when we got her needles done but it was fine as we knew it would be. Hilarious though.

    For anyone interested, one of the moderators (can't remember which sorry) recommended a book called 'the science of parenting' and I borrowed it from thelibrary yesterday. It is a really interesting approach based on the chemical/ hormonal goings-on in children and babies brains and deals with how parenting should respond in all kinds of situations based on what's happening in their brain at that time. Easy to read too.

    Ok... I'm just about off to bed so I promise I will do personals tomorrow

    Just a quick update on our appointment on Monday. The specialists seem to think that Oscar won't need a helmet and that his head should "come good". However, if it doesn't they will refer us to a private practice and we can go from there and get a helmet.

    Anyway... I'm just about exhausted so I'll be back tomorrow to chat!

    Night

    Hi ladies

    That is great news dani RE the solids question: Ethan never liked Farex, so i started him on 2 teaspoons of sweet potato he was 4 months and he did really well. Ethan hasnt had solids for a week now though, i have offered but he just doesn't want it

    Sacha- ethans routine goes out the window every two weeks, as dh comes home from work and wont stick to a routine with ethan, so atm (dh has just left) no routine. We are try to get back on track again now!

    Nay- ethan used to cough for attention now he just does it when he's playing, he's taken to yelling and squealing to get my attention, bossy little thing, lol i can just imagine the teenage years

    Megan- ethan only sleeps for about 2hrs during the day, around 10am he will have an hour and again around 3pm i would like him to sleep a bit more as he gets grizzly and tired after 2-2 1/2hrs but just wont sleep!

    Veronica- I tried ethan with avacado 2 weeks ago and he hates it too! Dh cant stand it but i love it.

    Em- Glad the move went well and that your loving the new place. I cant wait till moving day, im so sick of packing Your family holiday sounded great btw!

    Well Ethan is all better, fever has gone and so has the rash, he was left with a little bruise on each leg though Spent the day packing again! You would think when your packing the house would look tidier as everythings being boxed up, but man it looks like someone ransacked the place today!! Ok, i can hear the master calling so will pop back tomorrow, hopefully.

    Good night

    Danni, Thats great about Oscar's head & as he gets older he'll spend less time laying on his back/side whatever spot is flat, so that must have been relieving words.. Although I'm sure you'd have coped wonderfully!

    I'm hoping to get Zy weighed soon... I'd say he'close to 9kgs now...

    I rearranged all of his baby clothes out & his 0 & 1's into the cuopborad & I cannot find an expensive T-shirt I bought to go with a matching pair of pants & I am soannoyed & hope I didnt put it in with all the newborn stuff I passed on to friends... I'm gonan have to look through all the kids clothes & under beds etc before asking the friends if they happen to have it!

    We are off for a walk soon & then out for lunch (trying to squeeze in some fun things before I go back to work)
    OOOh I feel bad too as i got paid today for last week 5 days doing 8-12 & it was just under $600... I feel like a sook! Oh well atleast I'll have my old role back on Monday!!!

    Morning!

    First of all i just have to say, don't you love it when you find shoes you forgot you had, then you feel like you have a brand new pair all over again...he he

    Thanks for all the answers about day sleeping, sounds like all the babies are pretty similar (except Em Tom is a bit of a legend in that department!!). Its funny though in all the material you get it says babies of about this age have 2 sleeps of around 2 hours each, but in reality most dont, i think they should actually talk to mums before printing anything!!

    Well we are off for our needles today, i had to get up at 7am (yuk!) and get organised cos Lucas wont have time for a sleep before we go and i cant get anything done when he's up! He has taken to sleeping in till about 8.30am this week (love it!) but i am going to have to wake him soon and it breaks my heart!!

    Well will BBL to catch up!!

    HAPPY SIX MONTHS TO TOM!!!

    I cant believe that 6 months ago today at was the hospital getting ready to have a needle stuck in my back, excited about meeting my little man!! What i didnt expect was how hard, fun, challenging, amazing it would all turn out to be!

    Good luck with Lucas' needles today Megan. I normally make DH come along to hold Tom but we were away when the session was on, so i will have to be a brave girl and take him along to the doctors by myself.

    Better go - someone is in his bed singing away with his music box. I am going to go video it so i can bring it out at his 21st, along with all the nuddie pics and laugh at him.

    Hey everyone,

    I feel the need to apologise, because I?m finding it really difficult to find the time to do personals lately. Liam has started being really difficult in the evening, which is when I?ve normally had a bit of time to myself, and during the day I?ve got Liam & MIL to deal with. But have a quiet moment now, so here goes with a few:

    Megan ? I?m with you on finding shoes that have been forgotten, same goes for tshirts for me too, just feels like a bit of a bonus. So does realizing that I can fit into pre-pregnancy clothes. Good luck with Lucas? needles today, hope he gets through them without a reaction.

    Tracey ? bummer about the t-shirt, hope it reappears quickly for you. It?s great news about getting your old role back, and even better to hear that your old boss has moved.

    Jessikah ? having Ethan?s routines disrupted every couple of weeks must make it very challenging for you. Dad?s mean well I think, but unless they look after them 24x7, I think that they don?t get the whole routine thing, cos often they don?t have to deal with the really difficult times in the way that Mum?s do.

    Danni ? great news about oscar?s head. It?s amazing what we can cope with if we have to, but it?s pretty nice to not have to cope sometimes.

    Mel ? hope things are improving with DH.


    Well, after saying that it was too hard to cope with, Pat & I have taken the plunge with controlled crying, cos Liam has been putting on too much of a performance at night, yelling his head off even when I?m holding him until 10pm, which just isn?t on. The clincher came when I had Liam bawling, and I could hear MIL also bawling her eyes out cos Liam was bawling, which just p?d me off in more ways than I can mention. So, I pulled out Baby Love, made Pat read the ?teaching to sleep? section, which made him believe me that it was a good thing to do. The 1st night Liam screamed until 11, but just as I was about to give in he went to sleep, and slept until around 6.30, which was the 4th time he?s slept through ever. The 2nd night he yelled, very unconvincingly, for around 40 minutes, then was asleep by around 9.30, woke at 7am (so sleep through number 5), then last night yelled for around an hour, was asleep by about 8.45, woke at 7.15. So starting to feel like I have a pattern going, and it?s a pattern I really like (except for the leaking bbs in the morning). We also made MIL read the Baby love book, and then reinforce that Liam isn?t crying because he?s unwell, which has made it easier for me to cope with it all, cos she?s not putting on a performance at the same time. The only thing that I don?t do much of is going in to let him know that he hasn?t been abandoned, as that seems to make him cry more. It?s hard, but then when he wakes in the morning after a long sleep he?s been really happy, so I think I?m not doing major emotional damage by getting him to work it out for himself. At least I hope so.

    Anyway, that?s all a bit me-me-me, but I?m pretty happy, so kind of wanted to share.

    Megan - re sleeping - yesterday Diana slept for 10-15 mins max during the day! Most day I am lucky if she gets a 1 hour nap in. Usually she sleeps for 30 - 40 mins once during the day. I have no idea if this is normal. It's exhausting running after the Energizer Baby.

    Good Morning everyone!!

    I dont have anywhere to be this morning so I thought I would take the time and have a coffee and jump on here while Avaleigh falls asleep and then I am going to have a swim in the pool. Yesterday success of getting her to sleep in the morning isnt quite working today!! She had a lil nap while on our walk but is in her cot and not crying so I will just leave her alone and fingers crossed she will fall asleep.

    Jan - thats good to hear that controlled crying is working for you and YAY for the sleep throughs! Those leaking boobs will soon stop. I have tried the controlled crying but I give in so easily when Avaleigh gets hysterical. We have no problems at night, its normally during the day that we have a problem.

    uh oh Avaleigh is crying.. better go investigate. She's probably gotten her legs stuck!

    LOL Avaleigh was stuck in the corner up on all fours. I HATE it now that she is getting up on all fours and rolling around. She gets me up 3 times during the nightbecause she had gotten herself stuck. I sometimes wish I could just strap her in so she doesnt move. AHHH crying again!!

    Happy 6 months tom!! Time has just flown by hey. I said to Jason last night that Avaleigh will be 6 months soon and that we are going to have a lil party for her.

    Megan - Yeh you have got to wonder where those books get all their information from!! Avaleigh never slept the amount of hours babies are meant to when they are first born.

    Dani - thats get to hear about Oscar's head!

    It was soo funny last night. Avaleigh has up on her hands and knees trying to crawl and she had her head down looking at her knees while trying to move them. She managed to move her knees but couldnt work out her arm! Oh boy, she is going to be crawling soon. Better baby proof the house!! She also took a few walking steps last night too while Jason was holding her by her hands. I wonder what will be first - walking or crawling?!?!

    God girls - i hear you on the moving around the cot. T is driving me nuts - he spent his first 45 mins of his sleep this morning rolling over and inching his way up the cot to play with his monitor. I told him i was going to have to sticky tape him to his matress. The other night he was asleep with his back resting against the headboard of the cot and his legs hooked thru the bars. Very weird.

    Jan - we did our version of controled crying on Tom too - sounds very similar to yours. It was definately hard but worth it in the end - especially at this age where they are starting to pick up on things, like coughing for attention etc. It seems a bit easier now to tell the difference between the cries - hungry, tired, dirty nappy and just plain old 'come and pick me up - i want to play'.I sometimes sit in his roon out of his line of sight just make sure there is nothing really wrong and i'm not in the next room panicking that his head is stuck in the bars or something! I had MIL make a few comments regarding the crying like when he got up she would say 'come to me, you dont want to go to mummy - your scared of her because she makes you stay in bed' and constantly saying 'maybe he's not tired, thats why he is crying'. Thankgod i only had to put up with this occasionally - not her sobbing in the next room, you poor thing!
