    Wow you all got so spoilt for mothers day I ended up going out for coffee only this morning, no time for a big breakfast by the time we got ourselves ready and then DJ. So, we went out for lunch with my mum and brother (his gf), Doni and DJ Didn't end up seeing Doni's mum for mothers day, she had the flu. Was a nice afternoon. My mum gave him into trouble for not getting me a card. Men just don't think sometimes haha My birthday is coming up so hopefully he will do better next time kehehe

    Prama - what a wonderful mothers day presie that is a super good sleep woohooo DJ still woke up every 4 hours for feeds which was still good since he normally wakes up every 3 hours and he was latching on well all day. Mind you I expressed some milk so I could have some vino at lunch kehehee How was your picnic? Are you feeling better? Are you coming to class tomorrow?

    SJ - so glad DH and Molly spoilt you so much - you deserve it - such a nice surprise to wake up to as well.

    Danni - that is a great presie indeed getting a dishwasher, I love mine, it is a godsend!! I so hate washing dishes!!!

    Trina - haha know what you mean about the washing etc no rest for us mums hey? I had to wash a full load of nappies this morning and they are in the dryer at the moment. Still lots of dishes to be stacked in the dishwasher as well, hoping hubby will get the hint and do it for me...hahaha


    Well girls enjoy the rest of your mothers day and look forward to hearing more from you all I am off to relax and watch Big Brother while DJ is sleeping.

    hello!
    hope everyone's having a good mother's day and that's why it's quiet!
    had lovely picnic, SIL and BIL(they dont have kids) prepared a lovely lunch for MIL, DH and I. Poopy was good, but got a bit grizzly just as I started to have lunch. So i put him in the hug a bub and he fell asleep so I managed to eat with him in the sling. MIL was very sweet and offered to carry him after she's had her lunch (everyone had almost finished when I continued my lunch) but I told her to relax and that he's asleep so it's ok.

    Shell - glad you had a nice time! What did you have for lunch?
    Men are silly sometimes arent tehy. sometimes just a card would do, we dont expect expensive presents!
    And very clever of DJ to sleep longer just for you!
    will be there tomorrow, tho feeling a bit lazy after missing a week!

    Trina - hope you got spoilt by 4 lovely girls! yes, any mother would love a day without housework as a present!

    danni - well done on a dishwasher! I'm still the dishwasher at home. I dont mind washing up really. DH is hopeless doing teh dishes. He does the washing every week (our clothes, I wash nappies every other day) but dishes is not this thing!

    SJ - enjoy your new pressies tonight!

    I miss my mom more this year than any other year....

    Im glad everyone had a lovely mother's day... hubby bought me flowers and a card which he pretended that monkey wrote - very cute he even wrote letters back to front and even wrote it like a kid - i think he used his non writing hand lol...sweet though. I feel as u get older gifts just arent in the pix...although a card would always be nice - which i tell my husband all the time... dont expect anything just a nice card with nice words... monkey was pretty good today - slept and finally slept during the day and a proper sleep at that... he even woke up adn settled himself phew.... or else i would of gone crazy.

    Shell /Prama - funny how we have same nik names for our little ones.... for some reason my hubby is obsessed with calling him monkey and wants to buy stuffed monkey toys - thankgod we cant find any hehehehe re: poopy name - i love it.... Joshi does the maddest farts hahahaha we sometimes think its a poo but i tell u what it sure vibrates.... he once did a very smelly one when my hubby was holding him and it seriously reaked and lingered.... for a guy hubby couldnt handled it -i was laughing so hard as well cause joshi had this content and proud look on his face....typical boy.

    xxxx good night grls.

    Prama - i miss my Mum too - every year at the start of May she heads back to the UK as her Mum (my Nanny) has her birthday today (she is 94 this year !!!). Fortunatly she will be back at the end of May. I cant imagine what it would be like for you with Mums that are so far away.

    Had the best sleep last night... put Molly Jane down at 8.30pm and she woke at 6am... thats a record for us, had to express a little after the feed as she couldnt drink all the milk that was bursting out of my boobs!

    Question... what's the difference between nappy rash and Thrush?
    Molly is really red on her bum and up the front (tried to have a bit of a look around her vagina, but that looks Ok) have layered on the sudocream for the last 2 days but it doesnt seem to help. The reason that i was thinking maybe thrush is that i got a touch of it a couple of days ago (about when her rash developed)...

    DJ managed to do another full four hour sleeps which is good for me mind you he hardly slept at all yesterday so he was very overtired. He is whinging a bit this morning because of his wind, so gave him some Donnalix, not working. Might grab some Infants Friend while I am out today, finding Donnalix not doing anything for him anymore.

    SJ - DJ had nappy rash a month ago and it was caused by the nappy wipes I was using. It took a while to go away because I didn't click as to the cause of it until it wouldn't go away...... but thrush is totally different, but not sure how to determine if a baby has thrush. Someone suggested to check the bubs mouth for any whiteness which could be a sign of thrush. Hope that helps

    Prama - yeah know the feeling, I am soooo tired today but really need to go to class. Picnic sounds fantastic glad you had a great time. We ended up going to Wentworthville Leagues Club since it is local to my mum and we knew that wouldn't be prob especially with no booking. I was a bit unorganised and hadn't booked anywhere.

    Ania - not sure why we call him monkey either just suits him kehehe

    Well girls have a super day

    PS: the dishes I left for Doni are still sitting on the bench looks like I have to stack the dishwasher haha

    sj - poopy has a rash now, i think its the j&j wipes. we were fine with the huggies. before he did have a rash on his bum, under arms and his milk spots turned into a rash too. sudo cream didnt work. we used the hydrozole that his paed perscribed a while ago for his underarms for his face and it all cleared aup.

    i see my mum, dad and bro next mth, am looking fwd to seeing everyone, 500 uncles and aunties and cousins! i miss having my big family. here its only steve's mum, sister and her husband. we see mum very often and sil and bil every few mths. to me families, get together all the time and there's noise and laughter and silent fights! i feel sorry as he wont have that here.

    shell - see you in a bit. men SO dont get about dishes!
    Glad you got the extra sleep.

    poopy was very cheeky and decided he should wake up at 3am for a feed.. he always seems to giveth and taketh away! lol.

    I use paw paw cream on everything for myself and Will it is fantastic is also all we use at work on the kids too.Face bum anywhere really.
    Had a lovely mothers day and Wil laughed giggled and smiled his way through lunch for his grandparents and it was beautiful to watch a 60 year old man and woman bought to tears of joy and laughter by their grand child.My weekend made the whole crappy week dissapear and I feel so much better.I got what I am sure wont be my last pair of warm slippers and box of choccies.

    All chemists have it these days sj and I get mine at Wollies or coles..a little bit goes a long way and they also have great little handy tubes for the nappy bag. Its in a red pot. I put it on my ceaser scar, pimples,scratches, if Wills chin gets abit red from the dribble, on his needle site after immunisations, on my nose in the winter when its been blown too many times it realy is magic stuff and all natural.

    Glad everyone had a nice Mothers Day.

    J & J wipes gave Paige the most severe reaction when i tried them, she was bleeding it was so bad she had to have meds, too scared to try ever again. Curash cream is good, but agree paw paw is fantastic, just didn't have any and always forget to get it. Summer gets a little red area around her bum esp if she is in the car/pram for long periods and gets a bit hot.

    I think thrush starts in the mouth then goes to the bum and is meant to be a butterfly pattern around bottom hole. ??? none of my girls have had it but thats what the health nurse said.

    DH is away for a week, gone to Perth then Singapore then Indo.

    Summer has been at the horse and pilates all day today so is asleep might have to go wake her up soon. She is usually in bed for the night by 7.30-8.00.

    Sorry for lack of personals, feeling frustrated and cranky lately, probably the tail end of this cold not one rest and can't take anything.

    DJ is a little unsettled tonight, just won't sleep think he is just a little overtired, probably a result from a big day out yesterday me thinks.....

    Paw paw cream rocks!!! I use it on my lips helps when you think you are coming down with a coldsore, seems to disappear

    Prama - good to catch-up with you after the class today, I am enjoying our coffee's after class Hopefully next time our boys will let us shop..... Typical males just don't enjoy shopping. Did you get home ok? I put those wrist rattles on DJ but he hasn't quite clicked about them being on his wrist, probably a bit too young haha

    Trina - how was pilates? I was considering starting a class as well, but the classes are never on the nights I want.

    Decided to catch-up with a friend tomorrow for a coffee providing DJ is settled and sleeps well tonight. Going to give him a feed shortly and hoping that will settle him to sleep. Hubby has cold so hoping I don't get it boo hoo everyone has the flu in our family. I soooo don't want to get sick.

    Hope you are all well.

    Morning girls,

    Well I had my first long break between feeds. Fed DJ at 9:30pm and then he didn't require his next feed until 3am this morning Yeehaaaah he slept from 11pm til 3am which is pretty good, his first 5 hour sleep, he did that the other night as well, so hopefully it will become a regular routine kehee After his 3am feed he didn't wake up until 7am for his next feed which was pretty good and it was only a 5 min feed because my boobs were really full this morning. So, I actually feel really rested, had 8 hours of sleep, mind you it was broken sleep so not a full 8 hour sleep. Speaking of which do any of you have a set routine for your bub?? DJ isn't in a set routine, I just know that I need to make sure he gets some full sleeps at night or he is grizzly for the following day and he needs a midday or mid morning sleep as well, so that is my routine for him.

    I can't wait for this weekend, it will be our first night away from DJ. As much as I will miss him terribly I am soooo looking forward to catching up with friends and having a full sleep not interrupted by a baby crying. We are going out with friends on Saturday night and my mum is looking after DJ for the full night Yipeeeee I have already expressed and frozen 5 feeds, so only need another 2-3 to be safe. Over 24 hours normally feed DJ 7-8 times.

    Well that is it from me, I better go start some washing. DJ is laying next to Doni in bed so gives me some time to get things done while he is sleeping.

    Have a super great day girls!!!!
