    Hi all, thanks so much for your supportive words re: my crap personality - am having a good day today so feel very positive about my ability to change. Forgot who mentioned it, but there are no alcohol issues involved - just selfish, spoilt only-child, insecure issues DH and I are doing much better this week.

    I haven't much time (still using public PC) but hugs to all, esp CeeCee - hope your doll is doing well. And to all us mums - we are doing the best we can - BF or not, disposable or cloth nappies, caesar or "natural", or whatever. Must go

    ciao bellas

    Good Afternoon WooHoo both my boys are sleeping! This is my reward for working so hard tidying the house AND entertaining Wade with a drawing activity and jigsaws etc hovering between both and also feeding Niall a couple of times. DH rang this morning too and our Baby Bonus money ($3500 - included a bit of Family Payment backpay) has come through!!! He used it to pay off half our Visa debt that has accrued alarmingly during my pregnancy. What a relief... hate being in debt.

    Love the piccys CeeCee and Karen! Both Alexandra and Nathan are so gorgeous and you're looking great Karen... you've got a pair of good looking (older) boys too! They look pretty fit and healthy... what sports do they play?

    Speaking of "fit and healthy" I really need to do something about my sugar cravings! I saw some tablets in the pharmacy the other day that claim to stop sugar cravings... I think I need to go back and get them (if they are safe to take whilst BFing). Chocolate! I'm eating it daily! I just can't stop myself! I know it's not ideal to eat when BFing but it's not affecting Niall at all luckily... I'm also still drinking (1 or 2) cups of coffee a day and it's not making him restless! He's still sleeping 80% of the time and just quietly alert the rest of the time (mainly between 9pm - 10pm and 8am - 9am). he's got a bad case of zits though... but the MCHN says it's just my oestrogen in my milk and nothing can be done about it.

    Nappy rash: I use Sudocrem every time I change him, quite liberally, and he hasn't had a rash yet. I change his nappy very regularly too, mainly because they are fabric which also makes it easier to forget the cost factor of frequent changes. Creams with zinc are the best for preventing rash... the zinc really soothes inflamed skin (takes away the burning redness)... I've never used lanolin though... I would imagine it would be an excellent barrier cream (would stop the wee getting through to the skin) but I'm not sure it would have the anti-inflamatory ingredients to sooth nappy rash... I might be wrong though... as somebody said; different skins respond differently to different creams. However frequent nappy changing is (I think) the best and quickest way to deal with nappy rash. Be extra careful in hot weather too girls... nappy rash can get really bad then.

    Good to see you again Rory Did you say you were getting internet connection at home at some stage?

    Got a few jobs to do that can't be done when the boys are awake... be back later.

    Nic - just looking at photos of Nixon. Try not to worry about his weight(easier said than done, I know), but look how far he has come! You are truely doing a great job. Have you managed to measure how much he brings up? That sounds like a tricky job, good luck. I hope the zantac helps.

    Just changed my ticker... something seems to be wrong with the SnugglePie site that I had my previous one with Thanks IK for the inspiration to try Baby-Gaga... let's hope they are more stable.

    Bath - just missed your post. Sounds like you've had a busy morning.
    My boys only really go to swimming, although they ride their bikes a lot. I'm hanging out for the baby bonus, did you put the claim in straight away? If so I may have another week to wait. I hear you about the credit card, I'll be doing the same.
    I'm hanging out for sweet things esp chocolate, but I've got nothing in the house

    Karen: yep, we put in the CentreLink Baby Bonus claim straight away... within a few days of Niall's birth.... still haven't put in Birth Registration though. We've also already received our new Medicare card with Niall's name on it... there's no room left now! I wonder what larger families do? Jess: are all your kids on your Medicare card?

    Enigma - I remember that one of the other girls in my thread got the baby bonus within a week of putting her forms in, yet mine took the maximum time that Centerlink suggests it'll take. Frustrating I know, but you could always call them and ask them if they can estimate how long till yours comes through?

    Bath- I get two cards with some on one and the others on another. My baby bonus took the maximum amount of time.

    I just passed two large clots (one the size of a golf ball +, the other the size of a golf ball -) they looked like raw liver...I rang the labour ward they said to watch for future bleeding and if so to call them back... has anyone else experienced this???? I am a little freaked - thanks...

    If the colour of the blood is a dull maroon/brown I think it's ok... but if it is or turns bright red then call the hospital asap... are you due for any further at-home midwife visits? I'd mention it then either way.

    Well we have had a great day again here, Tori slept for another 5 hour stint over night which was great, it is nice to be able to get a fairly long block of sleep. Shehas been reallly settled today as well which is wonderful,Iam just crossing my fingers that she isnt too unsettled tonight.
    We gother birth certificates in the mail today which made me shed the tiniest of tears because it made it suddenly all so real, there was my name listed as somebodies mother.
    Another nice thing was that we got a card from our real estate agents congratulating us on the birth of our baby, I thought this was a lovely gesture and not something 'normal' within there call of duty- which made it kinda special.
    We also heard that the parking fine we recieved while I was in Labour has been waived- so all round it has been a really great day.

    Nic- There is a family assistance esitmator on the family assistance website which tells you how much money you are entitled too. It might be different now that it is a new financial year, I waited untill 1st of July to put my claim in, as I knew that we would be entitled to nothing in terms of Family Tax benifit last financial year, but because i will not be working for 6 months of this financial year, and then I will be returning only part time, we are entitled to something for the financial yer starting 1 st July.

    Anyway a big hello to everyone, I am off to have a shower and get into my Pj's. I have just had a nap, and my wonderful DH is cooking dinner!
