    As you all know r wants DD back on formula as she thinks she may have a cows milk allergy... which totally confuses me as she has had it on her cereal for 5 months already and as full cows milk 1 cup a day for 2 months and her facial (only) rash has only developed in the past 7 weeks or so.

    She told me to put her back on what she was on (s26 gold toddler) - althought it is dairy based ... more confused!!

    Anyhow.... she goes through 1-2 tins a week... $35-40 a week later.. i am really struggling. So i bought Amcal own (only $10 a tin)... do you think it will matter?

    Does anyone use AMcal's brand? any problems??

    She has been doing the most rotten poos since back on formula too!, and like 3 a day!! not happy about that lol (ewww in my new cloths too!!!)....

    PP - I don't use formula, but from what I know, it is based on cow's milk, so giving it to Ashley when she may have an allergy to cow's milk seems really weird. Have you tried giving her goat's milk? I have heard that it works for people who have an intolerance to cow's milk (but I haven't personally tried it - I prefer soy, which I sometimes give to Diana too).

    Tina - So sorry to hear that you are getting the run around. I think your experience warrants a formal complaint. Perhaps you should write to their main office. Treating people the way they have treated you is just unacceptable. Hope Mikayla's sleeping improves soon.

    Diana had her first haircut the other day. I trimmed it at the back to make it even. My little girl is growing up. I also took her swimming to a big pool for the first time this week. She loved it. I plan to take her once a week. If any of you Sydney mums (or others who are visiting Sydney) want to join us, send me a message and we can arrange a time. We go to the Ian Thorpe Pool, which is really nice, clean, heated, etc.

    Hi to everyone else.

    Hi PP, I don't know about Amcal's own brand of formula but can you compare nutrients to the other ones? And does it have probiotics, omega 3 etc, I suppose that could be the difference.
    I read on another thread somehwere that you shouldn't give soy to under 2's, but I can't remember the reason now But the same person did recommend goat's milk. However like you say it is weird when formula is cow's milk anyway. What a mystery, you must be really fed up. Can you get one of those allergy tests where they test her hair strands?

    Well Lewis just took 8 steps. He's really dragging it out though, it was nearly 2 weeks ago that he took his first 4!! So maybe by Christmas he will be walking......

    Hello my lovely June Mummies!!!

    We had a really frightening night... Caeleb choked tonight. And not just a gag, a silent, struggling as hard as he could to get a breath choke. He managed to start to gag and eventually vomited a little. I thought he was in the clear as I could hear some air getting through, but then he started rolling his eyes around and blacking out on me. DH and I ran for the car (we were going to call an ambulance, but by the time they got here, he would have been dead), but as the cool air hit his face, it must have startled him and made him cough up a big piece of strawberry that was lodged in his throat. It was the single most scariest moment of my life. I still feel sick just thinking about how quickly it all happened. One minute he was fine and the the next he was almost blacking out. I thank God that he coughed that up. I have no idea what I would have done if he wasn't okay. Poor DH, it's his birthday today too... what a horrible birthday surprise.

    On a much happier note...


    We're officially TTC for number two!

    We'd planned to wait till Caeleb was two, but the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to start trying sooner. Caeleb loves being with other children so much. I just know he'll be such a wonderful, loving big brother. So, please wish us luck! We'll need as much as we can get, since we don't know if DH is sterile or not. The doctors have told us to start trying and if nothing happens, then they'll start doing tests. We're hoping to conceive a pink bundle this time, but will be just as happy with another little boy!!! I've joined the TTC 1 - 6 month thread again, but it's just not the same as when Charly and I were in there... ah, such good times. So, if it's okay, I'm going to lean on you girls for support. I just can't seem to connect with those girls the way I do with you guys. Probably because we've gone through the greatest part of our lives together.

    Okay, it's late. I'm going to go snuggle in bed with my boys.

    Oh Celsie what a bitter sweet post that was. How AWFUL Caeleb choking like that, I can imagine the sheer panic. Thank God it all turned out well. It's so scary to think things can happen so quickly. Imagine if you had left the room for a minute or something, it is a wake up call for us all

    But hey congrats on TTC Fingers crossed it won't take long. How exciting.
    I would like to join you which is a turn around for us, but looks like we will wait until the end of the year or so.

    hi girls
    Celsie - how scary for you! it is hard isnt it.
    I am not sure what advice you have for choking but remember if bub is choking try to lay him in a heand downward angle - about 45 degrees (even if you have to balance him on your lap) and give him a good hit upwards between the shoulder blades (towards his shoulders - not the other way).

    I have had to do this a few times for DD when she choked on new foods and as mean as you feel, it dislodged the food!.

    And TTC woohooo!!! HOw exciting for you!!

    Can you believe ashley will be a big sister in 13 weeks arhhhH! lol

    Well i took her back for a second opinoin and this dr rejects the idea of a dairy allery! Thinks the rash aroun dher mouth is a dermatitis - possibly from teething/drooling and constant moisture (so we are barrier creaming for a while and keping dry as much as possible) and have a dermatologist referral. THe eyes she thinks is a reaction (as it clears with zyrtec) she flared up bad ont he weekend after playing in the dry grass . so possibly a hayfever....?

    SO we are back on dairy! yay!

    Sarah - why are you waiting till the end of the year? We figured it took us almost 6 months to conceive Caeleb, so with Tate only having one testical now and the chemo and everything, it may take us a bit longer this time.

    PP - Thanks for that. I did try that. It usually works, but I think this time it may have made it worse. I think it just scared him more than anything.

    PP - 13 weeks! Wow I didn't realise it was so soon. And that's great to get a referral because hopefully you will get a definite answer soon. Could the cold weather make the rash worse aswell??

    Celsie - Well we really can't afford to have another baby too soon, because we are desperate to get out of our unit and into a house, so Lewis can have a garden to play in. If I am on maternity leave we won't be able to afford to do all that so we need to do it first, hopefully by the end of the year.
    But I also don't know if I can concieve naturally as Lewis was through IVF and they don't know why I can't conceive, so I don't want to leave it too long. I am 36 so have to get a move on! I'm thinking of going down the chinese medicine route this time before I TTC.

    Yesterday my SIL brought Lewis' baby cousin around and he was so cute, he was pretending to be all shy and putting his head on one side when he saw the baby! And he just wanted to touch him all the time. And he kept making these little squealing sounds! So I think he would be quite happy to have a little bub around...for 5 minutes! I put pictures on facebook if anyone is on there. I'm under sarah chance stavrou

    Serenity - How is Mackenzie going with her sleeping??

    PinkPalace - wowee!! 13 weeks....gosh that has gone so fast! I did find that pg the 2nd time round went stacks faster too. And yay on going back on dairy. Baby/toddler rashes are funny things, trying to suss them all out. Hope your dermatologist appointment gets you sorted. I was looking through DD#1's pics the other day and its funny how I didn't realise how bad her eczema was back then poor little love, her cheeks all rashy and red. Funny though as DD#2 is almost complete opposite! Perfect skin! Thankfully DD#1 has the perfect skin now too.....ugh, imagine if they were teenagers right now lol!

    MumofLewis - fingers crossed that TTC is fun and short....or as long as you want it to be sending oooooodles of sticky vibes and baby dust straight at you lovey!!!

    Celsie - oh my goodness hun! Thank God Caeleb is ok!!!! what a horrible experience!! Oh the choking, damn its distressing! Although the girls have never choked that horridly, we have had multiple occasions of upside down, patting and even scooping with our fingers...........the things you do and have to go through as parents, who'd have kids hey?!? But......as you said, on a much happier note...... on TTC#2!! Ah wooooohoooooo!! And am so here for you too - I stiiiillllll remember you before I even got my bfp with DD#2!! Wow! Time has fuh-lown!!!! Also hurtling vibes and dust (of a pink nature predominantly, hehe) by the ocean full at you!! Square up for those stickyvibe darts love!!


    Guess what?!?! 2 more sleeps til Target Toy Sale!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hahahahaha!!!

    Oh and DD#2 will now walk holding one of our fingers..............................

    Seriously, she thinks that she is the cleverest thing in the whole wide world! As soon as you ask if she'd like to walk she starts laughing and then chuckles the whole time she wobbles forward. So cute, but soooo not hurrying her up, after all she could be my last bubby, sniff sniff .....ah plenty of time! *fingers crossed* hehe

    Oh and DD#1 gets green eyed jealousy monster when we pay attention to DD#2 so will then copy her baby sister......to the point of asking us to hold her hands too so she can "pretend to be a baby and walk like DD#2". She can tend to do my head in of late but just have to keep in mind she is only 3&1/2 and then go have a coffee, lol.

    Well, off to create and tinker, chat soon lovely ones. Hope every one else is doing sweet an dandy! xxxx


    Mwa!!!

    Hello everyone

    I have been popping by, well no I have been getting the email updates so I have been keeping up with all, just not stopping by.. I am working nights now and have been for a while and have lost my BB time! So much is happening with everyone!

    Celise- that must of been terrible, thankfully you did have DH with you and it all turned out good. AND BIG CONGRATS on TTC again. fingers crossed for you and sending lots of :stickyvibes: your way!

    PP - WOW 13weeks! I dont think I would have survived the last 6mths being pregnant, big to u! The countdown really is on! i hope you get Ashley's rash sorted once and for all with a specialist. Poor little chicken! Dane has had in the past a drooling rash on his chin and kinda under from his teething, but not so bad since he has had his amber necklace. What i find really interesting is the amount of allergies around today for the kiddies. When I was young they were so rare, i dont remember having any friends or anything that really had allergies. Is it our food? I think Dr's are too quick to blame an allergy without looking into the real cause. what do u guys reckon?

    Teepee2 - big hugs to you, i hope you are having a better time of things. Sending you lots of stickyvibes too.

    Chalryfrog - well done on DD#2 walking! I understand about the not hurrying thing, I really really want our next bub to be a lot slower at the whole moving thing than Dane has been! Little tyke Dane can get enough speed up that you actually have to trot after him!!

    He is showing that he understands quite a bit. We can say to him something about a poo poo nappy and have to change it and he will walk to his bedroom, same with bedtime, off he goes to his room, and today I said "c'mon lets sit down at your table for lunch( its a little Winnie the poo chair with a tray) and he walked over to where we keep the chair and I picked up the chair and he picked up the tray! Then he came over the chair and went to sit down backwards in it - but missed, but it was the first time he tried to sit back like that by himself, then to top it off he was trying to put the tray across!!
    He has just today started saying my name, Kylee = i rarely get mum unless he is sooky, but he is now walking around saying Kylee!! He has 4 molars now and 8 other teeth.

    anyway, I must get off to bed as I am going to have my ray of sunshine awake before the real sunshine!

    I will catch up again soon, something was mentioned about sippy cups and stuff, but I will leave that til next time!

    hope everyone is doing great,

    Thanks miss banana.
    I think it is a drool rash! But will wait and see

    My parents stayed last night (they live 5 hrs away) and so DD had an exciting day. Awake from 7am-330pm (went down for 2 hrs) and then up till 9pm last night.... BUT then she only sleep till 1030pm and was up until 3am screaming.. OMG i am soooo tired. Not sure what was wrong. DH and i were so out of it. She is asleep now so will give her a once over when she wakes up i guess.

    She also has 4 molars and 8 teeth MB! can you belive these chompers!

    Well i am waitting intensely for a email from DH - about a new job... i hpope he got some answers this morning... so i know what i am going to be doing over the next 4-5weeks (moving or not)... always fun with a toddler and preg!

    Pink Palace - Well I hope the job outcome is what you wish for! :goodluck2: We were 26weeks pg when we moved our tribe (DD#1 was almost 2&1/2).......I was foreperson .....and director of traffic, and mummy and chair warmer..... My pg belly really drew a moving crowd that time round!! We've moved another 4 or 5 times before that, minus children, and all that offered/turned up were the faithful inlaw folks, my sister and a friend.....like I said, my belly drew an army!! Even friends of friends! Well if you do have to move, hope you can get stacks of help and that everyone understands that your major role for the day will be incubator and mummy to Ashley

    awwww, gosh she's cute PP!! But you knew that Yep that rash looks exactly like what DD#1 had except it stayed on her cheeks....and did go to her eyelids, under her neck, back of her legs, feet, hands, arms, tummy.......... I'm no doctor so I'm not saying its the same but the rash does look similar. All we could do was moisturise with sorbelene and calendulis and then if it got really horrid, we'd use a smidge of dermaid - which seemed to work better than the cortisone/steroid cream that the dr prescribed. We stopped using soaps and we make sure her baths weren't too warm. Also we had to make sure that she didn't get too hot sleeping or playing. But like I've said, DD#2 has had hardly any thing! So funny how my girls are so different!

    But like I said first.......what a gorgeous little blonde munchkin you have!!

    Thanks Charly ! lol.

    Well still nothing from the job... Dh rang and left a phone message and emailed a letter ... and nothing heard back... frustrating! rah!!! :P

    Well after our dreadful night last night with DD's sleeping... we are going for night of terror #2!....

    i decided i am going to try without the sleeping bag tonight.. and sheets/blanket instead. Have put a sheep skin down... to keep her warm (she might object to this will see)..... mmmm might be another long night!!

    Should i put the sheep skin under the fitted sheet or is it ok fr her to cuddle into in on her belly?

    PP - I would put it under the sheet, I read that it's not good for them to be on sheepskin due to breathing problems, asthma etc. Maybe you should google it to confirm this?
    Good luck with tonight's sleep

    MissBanana - Dane sounds so cute, doing what you tell him already hey?! Hope it lasts! Lewis will throw me the ball if I ask him but that's about it so far! Actually if I say where's Mickey he will look at the TV, but not sure if that's a good thing

    He was up at 4.40am this morning for the 2nd morning in a row. I think it's due to his molars, or rather I hope it is. He was just starting to sleep through until 6am and now he's going backwards The molars take a while to come through don't they? I have felt a few pointy bits through but I guess as they are big it takes a while for the whole tooth to show.

    Hope all the Mums and bubs are good and keeping warm .....

    Teeth are temperamental little things!! DD#1 had teeth that cut and then disappeared not happy jan!! Molars do seem to take forever - like they can cut in spurts....."hmm, I'm 1/4 of the way through, should I keep going??? Nah! Make 'em sweat...mwah hahahaha!" and then the next day, "K, ready to pop through another micro centimetre now - yup, that's enough"

    Yeesh! Hugs to all those whose molars are playing cheeky games!
