    Hi all, its the thread-hogger here!

    Dont have time for personals ,just wanted to do a quick vent

    Aneta spent ALL DAY crying yesterday I have no idea whats wrong - my arm nearly dropped off from carrying her around.
    At times it seemed like it was whinging , then i wasnt sure if she was in pain or not. I dont think its colic because she burps and farts heaps... but it was so frustrating that i couldnt help her whatever was going on
    She slept through the night, and is sleeping now after her 5am feed ( its 9.30 ).. so we'll see what today will bring..
    Wish me luck

    Hi all, having a good day here so far...seem to have settled into a bit of a routine with Freya...amazing how one minute things are all over the place and the next you realise that things seem to start happening at the same time every day. Mind you, I know from experience that this doesn't last...just when you've got things down pat, bub decides to change everything again. Nights are ok...she goes to sleep in her cot at 7ish, wakes up at midnight and comes into bed with me (I know from experience she is not hungry, as refuses feed, just wants cuddles), wakes for a feed at about 3, then back in her cot till 6.30am. Hmmm, now I've put it into words it sounds very good indeed. I just keep thinking that DS was sleeping in his cot from 7pm till 5am at this age, but I MUST stop comparing!

    Went and got a few things for the kids for summer at KMart today...25% off kids clothes. I love it now I get to peruse the boys and girls sections! But I am like you IK...have to stop spending so much!

    Enigma, hope you're having a better day with Aneta today. It is frustrating, isn't it? Freya definitely has days like that, I have given up trying to find a reason and just concentrate on finding ways to get through it!

    OK, Freya is requiring my services, BBL...

    Hello all, me again. This time I am using a public PC but like I said, I will have broadband very soon!

    Bath I never thought I would be starting again so soon either (LOL) but I am lucky that Flynn is (so far) such a good baby and a good sleeper that the main reason I am now feeling a twinge of regret about starting work from home is that it will cut into my social life!! I will only be doing one day a week (7.5 hours) so it shouldn't be too bad - hopefully!

    Jo I never even thought of taking Flynn into bed with me when he fusses during the night - I am resorting to the dummy at the moment (which I will probably regret later when he starts spitting it out and demanding it be put back in again) but the co-sleeping is a good idea...

    Enigma I hope Aneta perks up a bit. Way to go on the sleeping through, though! Flynn may be a "good" baby in that he probably cries for about 10-15 mins a day but he is up for a feed every 4-5 hours during the night and in between wakes up fussing, usually because he has escaped from his swaddle and is punching himself in the face. Suppose you win some, you lose some

    Better go - off to a meeting ith Flynn. It is my "law institute" meeting day today and so far Flynn has slept through all of them - wish me luck!!

    ciao bellas

    Hi Cee_Cee & Rory great to see you guys checking in, hopefully everything is going well.

    I had my first mother group meeting on Wednesday and it was really quite good, we are quite lucky to have a small group, only 5 mums turned up- good opportunity to get to know everyone.

    I am already in my second pair of Pj's tonight, Tori did a HUGE power spew all over me after draining my boob, so now we are giving her a bottle because she is hungry for more. It looks like we have won the battle of the bottle, she is finally starting to take one, it is a slow process but getting there all the same.

    Anyway Better go, I have a home made apple pie in the oven and it is calling my name!

    Enigma i just wanted to quickly mention that Ronan was EXACTLY the same as Aneta for 3 days straight and the only thing that eased his crying was Infacol Wind Drops.. I thought it might be colic or lactose intolerance but it just came out of the blue with the bouts of crying and everytime he fed man that was an effort and all he did was FART! Ever since he's been on those drops he's back to normal.. Good luck with it..

    Yummo! Love home made ones Ali... put an extra dollop of cream on for me

    All's well here... went into the city today because tomorrow (our usual city day) we have to go to see the MCHN. Took Niall in the sling and Wade in the pram. Met DH and had a walk around Melb. Central... went to Myer and got the latest Clinique gift (a habit I just can't seem to break) and rode a new tram up Bourke Street for Wade's sake and the nice conductor gave me three coffee vouchers and gee it was just nice to get out!

    Niall had a slight temp last night due to his immunisations and I realised I didn't actually have any Baby Panadol on hand.... felt a bit worried at first as i've always given my babies Panadol but he wasn't unsettled... he fed as usual at 3am and drifted straight back to sleep... in the morning he woke up cooler... so that was great! No need for Panadol which I've recently heard isn't really that good for real little babies anyhow unless of course the temp is real high/dangerous. He was great today also but being in the sling for a good part of it probably helped.

    Sorry no personals today... see you all tomorrow when i get back from Niall's checkup

    Hey all,
    Haven't been in for a while, computer had been crashed till yesterday...and i am guilty i didn't pop in i was too busy reading some of the Birth stories.
    Enigma: I know how it feels to have a crying baby all day. Tarleha is great at it. It is so stressful. She may have a little pain in the belly besides the fact that she farts lots might be just a little air bubble. Tarleha actually has colic, but i can't always settle her.
    Jo: It's great that Freya has settled into a routine. You were very lucky with you DS was sleeping from 7pm till 5am. Especially at this age. I wish Tarleha would, she won't go down till 12- 3am and is up anywhere from 6:15 - 7am.Can't wait for a proper sleep through night routine. Apparently it gets stuffed up when they start teething!
    I have also been shopping for summer clothes (yesterday)!!! But i got a little denim mini skirt, red mini shorts, white and red string strap tops. They are so cute! Of course i will be doing more shopping. I am also guilty of spending a lot of money.
    Roryrory: You are so luky the Flynn is such a good baby. i get told Tarleha is a good baby all the time but they aren't here of a night time when trouble really starts.

    Me: Tarleha is starting to get those little pimple thingys on her face and i have to restrain myself from busting them....talking of pimples i am breaking out real bad, face, chest, back and arms!!!! I have booked Tarleha's 2 mnth injections, they are booked for next Sat at 10:15am....i was thinking about getting some panadol but some-one mentioned that its not good for them, why is that?
    My periods Have finished They finished yesterday which equalled 6 days...the shortest period of my life. They usually last anywhere from 10 - 14 days. I was hoping that having Tarleha would sort out my hormone imbalances and so far so good.
    But i now have the runs and an extremely sore throat. I don't wanta gastro bug or any form of infection in my throat including Tonsilitis.

    with the needles and panadol, I was told not to give any to ryan unless his fever got up there but he didn't even warm up. it took a little longer to get him to bed that night, but nothing unusual. The MCHN said that there was no need to give them panadol as it's more for our peace of mind than doing anything for them.

    Panadol AKA Paracetamol is perfectly safe to give to babies from one month old Nurofen AKA Ibuprofen is perfectly safe to give to babies no younger than 6 months old.
    With Paracetamol and immunisation when I had my first two it was the thing to do before immunisations, Immunisations were different then and had a different effect on the body. Today they say it is unneccessary to give as the immunisations are less harsh on the body and very few will require panadol due to high temp, anything over 38.5C. With high temps it can make baby very uncomfortable and irritable and is effective in bringing down the temp to make bubby more comfy. What they say today is that if bub gets a high temp after immunisation then it was probably due to other factors, like a cold or ear infection.

    So instead of reaching for the panadol straight away keep fliuds up with an extra feed or two and try keeping baby relatively cool by removing socks and hats, You have to remember that babies control their temp through their heads, hands and feet.

    Personally I don't like to give analgesics out willy nilly but if I do I prefer to use paracetamol rather then Ibuprofen as I just don't like to use NSAIDS on my small children and there gastrointestinal system. I don't think they give enough information about the effects and are too widely used, There has been talk of puting Ibuprofen drugs back on the prescription list instead of OTC. Every drug has it's counter effect I just believe panadol to be milder yet very effective. It's the in thing to use these new U-Beaut drugs but just because they are new doesn't mean they are better.

    Yep, Niall certainly wasn't as affected by his immunisations as my other 2 children... their temps were higher and they were certainly more unsettled. Niall had a very mild temp but was actually more settled (slept more) in the 48 hours after his needles. Glad I didn't just dose him up for no reason. There's a really good thread in here somewhere about what pain killers can do to very small babies if taken too frequently. I'll see if I can find it.

    ETA: Hope you don't mind Karen but I posted The Middle Wife in the "Just Kidding" forum LOL Sooo funny!

    This post was in the Platinum section (so I won't post the username for privacy) but it did influence me in my decision to not give Niall Panadol before his needles...

    "No, no, no pleeeease don't give her panadol before the immunisation.

    That used to be the general advice some years ago, and for some babies might be OK, but its not advised to do this now, especially with younger babies, as it has been known to mask whether the child has a reation to, or the severity of reaction to the medication.

    Now, I figured that was the point right, to not get the baby to have a reaction?

    OK, I'm not trying to scare you with this part..
    But my MCHN said at one of the council immunisations this year, the baby went into a coma, and they didn't know whether it was a reaction to the immunisation, or becuase of the panadol (turned out it was the panadol).

    At least if she's had no other drugs, and does have a reaction, they know whats caused it and can act appropriately.
    "


    Dee, being a nurse, what is the likely hood of a Panadol-induced coma reaction? I guess it might have resulted from an overdose?

    Am booking Nathan in for next Tuesday(immunisations) Good to hear everyone's babies are coping with their immunisations. I think it's worse for the mums.
    I feel just as strongly as you do Dee about NSAIDS. They never mention that it should be taken with food and I hear so often of parents just giving it in the middle of the night to their kids.
    Kristeel-Lea - hope you make a quick recovery and aren't coming down with a nasty bug
    Ali - glad you have a nice mother group
    Don't know that I'll join a mothers group this time, there's quite a few mums at school and at church with new babies so might just meet up with them.
    Well I'm a happy mummy today, Nathan slept for 7 hrs last night (from 10:30pm) and I went straight to bed then too so got just as much sleep. Then went out for morning tea with some friends, so nice to get out even if it is just inbetween feeds. Not keen on the public bf thing. It's funny cos I didn't care with my other two, but this time I'm more uncomfortable, particularly around men.
    Hope everyone is having a good (settled) day.

    I don't like using meds, on myself or kids, unless desperately needed. DH drives me mad because he is medicine-crazy, we have an entire pharmacy in our cupboard. But the other day when I took DS to the Dr, she got up me because I hadn't given him Panadol, saying you should always do it before you take them for a check up because it's easier for them to examine...hmm, still not convinced. I asked about Nurofen, because it looks so darn easy to administer, more so than panadol, and dr assured me it was safe, but I'm like Dee, don't think there's enough info on it yet.

    Having said all that, I will now contradict myself by saying that I have been giving Freya the infant Gaviscon this week and she is a different baby! Can't believe what a great effect it's had on her reflux, and she's actually finishing bottles, which she's never done before...she's normally screaming about 60mls in.

    JO: What??? administer Panadol so it's easier for them to examine??? That sounds crazy! I need to find that thread on pain relief... several nurses seemed to reinforce the opinion that we should very cautiously administer medication of any kind to very small babies.... surely not simply for the ease of medical staff! Good grief! Sounds like an Ob suggesting intervention for a woman so it will make the job of getting the baby out easier for him!

    the little devil is FINALLY sleeping next to me on the couch ( so im trying not to move , cough or breath )
    I just wanted to say ( not aimed at anyone! ) but i dont really understand why people give children ( especially babies ) medicine BEFORE they are feeling unwell /?
    Why put chemicals into their little bodies when they might not have any reaction ?
    Im hoping to avoid giving Aneta panadol for as long as possible , the later she starts with all of that the better i think

    Ok , that was just my opnion on the subject - in other news - a big hello to everyone!.. i think im breathing to loud because Aneta is waking again *sigh*
