    had my fill...
    i'm lucky enough that steve cooks most of the time now, he cooks and i clean up. and when i cook, he cuts everything up and i cook and clean up.

    bron - thanks for your reassuring words re poopy lifting his head. that means a lot.. you how it is, you cant help but compare sometimes.

    shell - i forgot to say that sometimes babies pull back fr the breast when they are stuffed up, cos they cant breathe properly. maybe that's what dj is doing, hope the little fess noses is working.

    A question for you guys Do your babies sleep in a cot bassinet or your bed? in their own room or yours? and if you moved them how old were they ebfore they slep in their oown rooms and you say just used a monitor or listened out for them
    I dont knwo if its just becasue I am overtired atm but every little sounds that Will is making of a night is driving me mad and last night was the first time I have gotten really frustrated with him poor little buggar is actually asleep but truffles snuffles grunts and sighs while he is soort of dreaming. Between he and hubby snoring I am whacked. He does have periods of deep sleep of course and he is just doing baby stuiff but I am caught between wanting sleep and my need to have him close by and to be able to see that little light on the monitor flicker to tell me he is breathing ( stupid I know if I can hear him he is breathing ) Any suggestions ?

    Aybody else still waiting for their birth certificates for bub?

    Daniella thats great Jazz is laughing.do you find yoruself laughing like a loon back at her. I do.hubby askswhat I am laughng at and I say laughing at your son laughing at me he cracks me up and his feet lit up when he does it to. I spend so much time just talking and smiling at him is such a precious time I hope you are really enjoying it with jazz.

    prama you are welcome hun and yeah I know about the whole comparison thing

    IS getting really cold here now it takes a lot for me to wear anything on my feet around home and to put a fleece on and have done both this week I worry about Will being cold but also over heating him what do you guys dress bubs in during the day and for bed

    OK enough questions for this morning I am just about brain dead need some brekki.

    Bron xx

    Morning girls,

    A few unsettled times with DJ last night and this morning just couldn't get him to sleep arghhhh so a little tired today - will make sure I get some rest later

    Bron - yeah I am excited about mothers day - keep trying to remind hubby that mothers day is coming up so hoping he will organise something for me. Maybe I should just remind him what I went through to get his little son born haha and DJ sleeps in his bassinette/pram in our bedroom now, but sometimes we have him in his room with the monitor on. Don't worry DJ grunts in his sleep as well so it wakes me up as well......

    Prama- sounds like reflexology went well little fess nose drops are working well, it clears up his blocked nose. When we see the paed in a few weeks time I am going to ask him about his blocked nose, because I feel like it is blocked everyday. I thought it was just because it is getting cold and I always make sure he is really warm too so he doesn't even feel the cold. I am wondering if he has an allergy or sinus problems..... Hubby gets sinus problems and my nephew and niece had an operation on their nose because of sinus problems. Might call my sis-in-law to find out what it was.....

    Danni - that is soooo cute, DJ is gurgling and I think it is giggling as well, but not sure. He smiles alot more now.


    Thank god for Friday, it means hubby will be home for the weekend pheww. More time for me to relax and get some rest over the weekend. He is going to help me clean the house tomorrow for bbq on Sunday. He has invited friends over for bbq lunch for his birthday. So it will be nice, just make sure I have all plastic plates etc to save me any washing up kehehee

    Looks like a nice day outside, think I will go for a walk with DJ today.

    Well girls

    Bron, Summer is in a cot in our room she grew out of her basinette by week 4, she is the only bub i have ever had in our room for longer than 1 night as every sound would wake me up. Even though i have no choice as we don't have anywhere else for her to sleep i am loving every second, sometimes she grunts etc but it hasn't bothered me this time for some reason. I would put Will in his room as you need your sleep otherwise you will be grumpy (well i would be). Summer gets very warm even if it is pretty cool, she is wearing a footless jumpsuit with socks on and she is toasty warm if we go out i usually just have a warm blankie over her unless it is really cold out i will put a beanie and cardie, most babies prefer being cooler rather than too hot well my babies anyway... Its so confusing being a mummy sometimes, way too many things to think about hey?

    Shell, i think because babies only breathe through their noses they seem like their nose is always blocked. Summer gets little boogers up there and that makes her snuffley but once i get it out she is usually better. If you look up their nose its a pretty small hole, no wonder it sounds hard to breathe sometimes. I would hate having to breathe through my nose only poor bubbas. Try the spray Prama uses might help.

    I'm off to the gym, back later xoxox

    Bron I agree with you I like babies to look like babies especially as Paddy will probably be my last. At night I dress him in AIO's long or short sleeves depending on the weather. I just put a light wrap over him in the hammock or if it's really cold in a sleeping bag. They're great if they get up a lot on cold nights. I'm using a night nappy most nights now so I don't have to worry about changing him or any leaks. He likes to wee!!! As for other clothes I like to layer because in WA it can be cold in the morning but by lunch time it's hot. Yesterday he was wearing a long sleeved AIO with no legs IYKWIM and some leggins over the top. I got some really cute ones from Big W. They sell Osh Kosh ones and they're so cute. The feet fold over to become bootees. Then when I had to take him out last night I just added a cardie and he was as warm as toast.

    Can't remember who asked but the reason I don't soak nappies anymore is coz you don't have to. The recommendations with the MCN is to dry pail them, prerinse and then wash with half as much detergent as you would use. The prerinse get rid of the wee. Sometimes I add canesten rinse to keep them smelling fresh but the sun usually does that.

    Bron - i'm exactly like you, Lakshman sleeps in his bassinet next to me and between him making noises and Steve snoring I get very little sleep. I'm a bit better with the noises, or maybe im so tired, i sleep through most of them now but he still has a blocked nose so his breathing's loud. and quite often im so fast asleep, i suddenly jump out of bed to check if he's ok and his sheets arent covering his face. im going to keep him in his bassinet till his 6mths and then move him to his cot (which Steve hasnt started building yet.) I dont think i'll ever sleep if he's in another room at this stage. When they are 6mths are SIDS risk free, so I'll feel better than.

    I get worried abt if he;s too warm or too cold. He sleeps in pajama suit or cotton AIO/bodysuit, then in a wrap and a sheet and cellular blankie over him. for a while i didnt turn on my electric blankie cos he didnt have one and i didnt want to be warm and toasty while he might be cold. then steve pointed when we were changing his nappy in the middle of the night that his scrotum was shrunken so he's nice and warm!! so now i have my electric blankie on!!

    yup, babies need to look like babies, i dont even like the smart a$$ t-shirts that sound rude. boys look so cute in overalls, i got a couple already for when he's older!

    shell - glad dj is feeling better!

    trina - way to go! enjoy gym..

    This morning i had this very very scary dream. i was asleep and i heard a sound like his mobile music thing being turned, but dh was already out of bed. and then it was just like i was in bed, and there was this black creature trying to grab lakshman and i was trying to get up and it was covering my mouth and holding me back. i managed to scream for dh but nothing would come out. i then saw him open the bedroom and then he said there's nothing wrong. all this was very real, like how i was asleep a moment ago. i tried to wake up but each time i did, i was waking up in my dream. and the creature was there. it was very nightmare on elm street.
    i finally managed to wake up and poopy was fast asleep and mobile was quiet, but he had his arms in wrap but up and covering his nose and mouth, but he was ok. it was very scary!

    DH is home today, he's got a cold and ive got all the symptoms so we both feel like crap. i hope poopy doesnt get it.
    we just got back fr the doctor's, poopy's milk spots became a rash, and i suddenly got scared, cos i have lupus and i was afraid he might have got it too. but doc said it shouldnt effect babies this young and will treat it as excema. and as long as im still breastfeeding some feeds he should be getting some antibodies to fight the cold. im so glad i hadnt stopped 100%.
    poopy's feed time.

    oh yes.. no birth cert yet.. 8 weeks it takes

    wow what an essay - they did some upgrade to the forums, so dunno what happen to the galleries!

    Jazz woke at 3 this morning also, but she did go to sleep at 9:30 and I went to bed at the same time although I didn't fall asleep till about 11ish. I feel like a mean mummy today. Jazz had her checkup and injections. I felt terrible when she screamed with the needles. I gave her a huge cuddle but then she had to have another needle in the other leg and screamed again! But now she's sleeping so I should turn off the laptop and do some stuff around the house. She doesn't normally sleep in the day anymore so I should make the most of it.

    Jazz still sleeps in her bassinet in our room and with her noises and DH's chainsaw like snoring I don't get a lot of sleep, but if DH isn't snoring and Jazz is then I find her noises a comfort. I would like to get her into the cot soon but am not going to do that until I buy a monitor. We will have to keep her door shut when she goes into her own room because I don't want to lock the cat up all night. Speaking of cats, Sultan jumped onto the change table this morning while I was dressing Jazz. Thankfully I was there coz he almost landed right on top of her. He'd been smooching around my legs and wanted attention. Because he wasn't getting it he just wanted to jump up and be in my face! He got a smack!

    Prama - that is a very scary dream indeed at least it was just a dream. I had a bad dream when I first had DJ and it was very scary and took me a few days to get over and forget. Just remember it was just a dream and don't read too much into it. If anything it just interprets as you are being the best mum to little Lakshman. I think worrying alot is just part of being a mother.

    Trina - yeah using the Little Fess drops which work well.

    As for what I dress DJ in, depends but mostly his all-in-one suits, they seem to work best. If we are heading out and it is a cold day I will put a beanie on his head or extra blankets in his bassinette/pram to keep him warm.

    Well girls, better go and get ready for my friend coming over for dinner. Doni is out at an Audi car launch thing so just a girls night with DJ

    Wow Trina she grew out of it a 4 weeks..I think WIll has a ways to go yet. I am not ready to put him inthe big cot yet he still looks so little. Have been thiking about putting his bassinett in there tonight all day and just dont know if I am ready no sleep or not *L* big sook I am I do like knowing he is there. WIll try and get him to bed bait earlier tonight as its when he is in a light sleep he makes so many noises.

    Prama how scary for you I hate it when dream has a unsettling effect.

    Trina good for you on the gym...my lazy bum feels like I have had a workout after I have hung 2 loads of washing on the line *L*

    Will and I are on our own tonight hubby has gone out to play pool he hasnt done for ages but he realy needs some time for him too He is so good at home I like for him to able to do stuff he likes too.He'll be home by midnight and snore nice and loud no doubt *L*

    Trina- Go you with the gym thing, I'm thinking about joining but some days I can barely lift my head let alone weights so I might wait until Noah is sleeping better!
    Bron- Noah sleeps in our room in his bassinet but is a very quiet sleeper so he doesn't tend to keep me awake and thatnkfully DH isn't a snorer so we are all quite lucky in the sleep department atm. Having said that,. Noah is a really long baby and has almost outgrown his bassninet so I think once he does, he will sleep in his room in his cot.

    I was also interested in what people are dressing bubs in to sleep. Last night Noah decided that he didn't want to be wrapped up anymore so my DH just tucked the blankets around him in his bassinet but he wriggled his arms out and when i picked him up for his 5am feed, his arms were like ice, it freaked me out! So any suggestions on how to keep him warm would be appreciated!

    Must go now and cook dinner, hubby will be home from work soon! Enjoy the weekend ladies!

    i spoke to the ECC nurse the other day, as I've been getting lots of vivid dreams, she said it's probably my protective maternal instincts playing up.

    Yeah, it's confusing dressing babies up. i find going out hard as well. i put a jacket and beanie on and then take it off when we get indoors. even in the car, im worried if the jacket will make him too hot.
    trina - re sleeping w a beanie, i read somewhere that not to have anything on their head indoors as babies loose heat very quickly via their head. so have something on when outdoors but not when indoors or in the car as they can overheat. does summer get hot with a hat on? sometimes i think he might need a hat when indoors as it can be cold. it's all very confusing!

    i feel like sh!!!!ttttttttt.
    hehe this is my 2,222th post!

    Bron yeah she grew out of it quick, her feet were down the end of the mattress in no time, and a few times she rolled off and was right up against the side of the bassinett I could have got a bigger mattress but thought i may aswell put her in the cot and save the extra expense. She found the transition fine cos she was so little too.

    Well went to the gym but have been so hungry today that it kinda defeated the purpose hehe oh well, it actually gives me more energy and makes me feel like i can cope with everything better most of the time that is.

    Summer had her needles today poor little baby, Tahnie was a bit worried hearing her crying so hard which she never does. She didn't even get a little bandaid so she had blood all over one leg.

    Prama hope you and Steve feel better xo

    Summer goes to bed pretty early, i can't keep her up any later than 8.30 she is usually ready by 6.30 and i try to keep her up and she usually goes at 7.30. A few times Summer has wriggled down under her covers, i only have a sheet and light blankie but still she didn't like it too much, she hates things around her face/head anyway let alone the whole thing completely covered.

    DH is at some black tie thing in Sydney tonight, I didn't get an invite, not that i would have gone but still, he's wine'ing and dine'ing and staying at the Casino while we had Macca's. I swear we have two completely different lives sometimes.

    I'm off to read a Mag in bed, enjoy your night gals xox

    Danni, when i am feeding Summer my cat jumps up on my lap, steps on Summers hip and jumps on the back of the couch and watches us, it's pretty funny, he knows not to go near her cot cos he did it once and got a smack and now doesn't go near it. Him and the dog both sit next to summer when she is in her rocker kinda like they are guarding her.

    Paula and Prama your post popped up same time as mine hehe

    Summer doesn't sleep with a beanie on i put one on if it is cold outside, she doesn't like the beanie too much she hates things on her head or around her face. In bed at night she wears a bonds suit and i usually fold the little hand bits down and i wrap her in one of those kiddapotamus wraps that velcro down, she has flanny sheets and a light blanket and if it is really cold i put a polar fleece wrap over the top, when she wakes up she is toasty warm, only if she gets her arms out of the normal wraps and her hands aren't covered is when her hands are icy cold. Isn't that horrible when they are like that like a little ice cube.

    Paula, the gym is a bit of a social thing for me as well as giving me energy and the aim is to lose the baby belly but the way i am eating it's gonna take a while. It was pretty hard the first week but am feeling heaps better, still hard work though and glad when it's finished. I am lucky that i am getting pretty good sleep most of the time, Summers legs are sore tonight so she might wake a few times tonight hopefully the panadol will make her feel better.

    hi ladies,
    was up at 2am, 4am, 5am (dirty nappy) 7am, 9am . am utterly exhausted. had a mini-meltdown last night. I just don't feel like i'm doing a good enough job, like i love him enough, i have no idea what i'm doing. He's not really smiling or laughing or anything and i'm finding it hard - especially when other babies the same age are giggling!

    Not to mention he's not had a good week. Spent all week really grumpy and super tired. He can't go back to sleep if we're out - there's too muc hto see and do, so he is hysterical after missing a sleepd uring the day and this carries over. Unfortunately he doesnt sleep thrugh at night.

    He's slept in his own room in his own cot since he came home. We didn't have room in our room for a bassinet. He hates being wrapped now so I have him in a sleeveless sleeping bag (am going to buy one with sleeves this week). If you're going to buy any make sure they are able to be tumble dried! I've washed and dried mine twice in 24 hours now (wee leaks...) I also dress him in a long-sleeved/legged onesie and a spencer.

    Prama - your dreams sound scary! I don't dream at the moment, I'm so tired. DH has to literally kick me to get me out of bed to do a feed hope you feel better soon
