    Well we had a good night, a full nights sleep again 10pm to 7.30, i just wish i slept, seemed to toss and turn all night, then woke up with AF (grrr) i wasnt expecting to get them so early. Hamish had his first shower with Dp this morning he loved it, i was suprised as dd use to hate the shower. Im glad he likes it because sometimes it is easier to give them a quick shower expecially when he wets through everything.
    Jess if i feed during the night i always lay down to feed, its just easier for me.
    Ok best be off to do some cleaning etc have 3 days work in a row starting tonight so i need to get organised.

    JESS: i know wat u mean about the dif cries. if she is full on crying i dont leave her cause it just makes her more upset and is unsettled longer.
    Jayda sleeps in teh cot perfect of a night it is just during the day. most of the time the only good sleeps she will have r on my chest but when ur looking after 4 other kids this isnt always convinient.

    LMK: yes it was crazy thinkin i could be preg again. i really dont knwo how anyone could do it so close i was a wreck for 3 days and when it finally came i was soooooooooo happy lol.
    i am so regretting coming back to work so soon. i dont knwo if i am just having a bad week or wat but i dont wanna work at all and the thought of being in this job for a few more yrs upsets me.
    i think it is cause i have just had to start back at 7am. but at the end of the yr when the 2 oldest go to skool i am not goign to start any earlier then 8 and make sure i am finished by 430.
    it is the perfect job i am home with my bubba and it is pretty good money so i know i will stay with it there is no way i can afford to stay home and if i found another job by the time i put jayda into daycare and then petrol it wouldnt be worth it.


    oh jaydas feeding is slowly gettin better. she has stopped refusing the bottle now but she is still only drinking about half. i have only been making up 90mls at a time cause this formula is too expensive to waste half a bottle each time. i hope she was just sick and she will get back up to her normal feeds soon. im going to take her to baby clinic tomorrow make sure she is still puttin on weight and se wat they think.

    Just a quick one for me... Miss has woken up, of course

    Weighed her yesterday & she is 7.35kg, it's funny cos my friend's son is 7 months (he was 8 weeks prem) and he is 7.4kg!!! She's a chubster!

    Hi All, thought our 12 week appointment was tomorrow but looks like there was a mix up and had to make a new appintment for next week. Not sure what Tiahna weight but looking forward to finding out ...

    Sarah H... WOW Juliette must be loving mummies milk... She may be a chubber but at least she's happy and healthy... My son was always a chubber untill he started to move round. Then the baby fat just fell off...

    I Did the shopping today, used the baby carrier instead of the sling... (more lower back support) Tiahna slept the whole time. She lasted the whole time and only woke up when i took her out and put her in the car. Came home she was playing for a bit i fed her had more play time for about an hour Now she's been asleep for an hour and a half.. her best day sleep ever and not being held or in the sling.

    Sass- I'm thinking of telling work i need more time... DOnt know how ur doing it already... I'm struggling with my 2 let alone other ppls kids. Good to hear Jayda is feeding better...

    Abb- i'm still too chicken to take DD in the shower... She hates the bath since i stopped the daily baths... Now were doing it every few days and she screams the house down... She arches her bach kicks and i'm worried she'll do the same in the shower. I'm regretting cutting the baths down now as she used to really enjoy them, hopefully its just a faze.

    Is anyone else's bubs rolling over yet??? I have to be careful now, I used to put Tiahna on the lounge to sleep but now she's rolling and moving so much i'm worried she'll fall off. Also if i sit her up a little she can now pull her self up a little more. Yeasterday DP sat her up against the curved pillow and she pulled herself up more andflopped over to her legs... (obviously she's willing but her back still isnt strong enough) I checked DS's blue book and he was rolling at 3 1/2 months so Tiahna is a little ahead of him. I found out she has a few ticklish spots and laughts the house down when she's tickles. She loves to play with my hair alot especially when feeding, also loves touching my face... Its great, were really bonding now with feeds. I'm feeling the let down more and i really think the Bfing is going well... (I was only doing 2 feeds by this stage with DS.

    Hope everyone else is well, i'm off to have some adult time with DP while the kids are both sleeping

    Jess wow at Tiahna nearly rolling what a clever little girl. Take all the time you need before going back to work if you can afford to. I would love to stay home longer if I could

    Sarah WOW at Juliettes weight, she is doing brilliantly and so are you with the feeding well done.

    Sassy glad to hear Jayda is taking the bottle now, that would be a big releif for you

    Abb excellent news on the full night sleep. What a good boy Hamish is to let his mummy get some rest.

    Well I have to go back to work monday. I got my dates wrong and my maternity leave has run out so if I dont go back now as we are paid fortnightly I wont get paid for a month.... that so cant happen. So I will be back at work monday which I am ok with. I knew it was going to happen soon anyway. DH is rapted as he starts his paternity leave a day early, he finishes work on thursday.
    I will now work mon tues friday and saturday. Next week I wont be working on tuesday as I have no one to look after the boys but then i will be back to my regular roster.
    Liam went from 8 - 4.30 this morning. I was rapted. my boobs were so full though. We are staying on reg feed times of around 7am in the morning which is good as I need to be at work by 8 and its a 1/2 hr drive.
    Have a good weekend everyone. we have 3rd bday and housewarming tomorrow so will be a busy day

    OMG- Last night sat Tiahna up in the corner of the lounge with the curved pillow while DP and i watched the footy. Next thing i know she's laughing so i look next to me and she sitting up all by herslef (i know it was with the assistance of the pillow) but she had managed to lift a little more so she wasnt laying on it. I was quick to put her back on the pillow as it is way to early. I was totally freaked out. DP was amazed she was just sitting there laughing at the footy. (think she'll be a Daddies girl watching the footy on his lap )

    I fnd the best time when Tiahna rolls is no nappy time... Think it frees her legs a bit more... she goes to her sideputs the top leg right over the bottom one and arches her back and flops over... LOL.

    We had an excellent night Tiahna slept from 8.45 til 7 this morning... FAN-bloody-TASTIC... Just wish i could have had a better night sleep myself... Everytime she sleeps well i'm tossing and turning.

    Deancey- about going back to work... But i guess we have to do what we have to do... Its great that ur DH is taking Paternity leave... My kids will have to be in care. . Yay on Liams sleep... IKWYM about the full (Pornstar) bobs.... Mine looked great this morning (said DP) but OMG were they sore and heavy...Hope u have a great day with the party and housewarming...

    I actually had a chance to clean the house yesterday. Tiahna had a 2hr Day sleep... if i can get that every day this house will never be a mess again... Its so great to get 2 hrs of solid clean time instead of 15 mins here and there. Well best be off have washing to hang, and dishes to unpack while little miss is blabbering to her big Brother.

    well we had a nice day today we didnt make it to the housewarming the boys were feral and tired after the park. Jordan run around for over 2 hrs and was asking to go to bed, he fell asleep in the way home. Liam didnt slept much at all so was feral and overtired when we got home so had battle to get him to sleep. We didnt want to cause further stress and take them out again so we stayed home.
    I am now all ready for work tomorrow. Everything packed for expressing and alarm set. Lets hope Liam feeds co incide to me needing to leave for work. He fed at 6.30 so I am hoping he will wake around 2-3 and then again between 6-7. that would be perfect. Or he could go straight thru to 6 and that would be even better but I am not holding my breath for that.
    So will fill you in on the day at work tomorrow night.
    take care

    Morning
    Well im glad my 3 days of work are over, It was fairly tiring as all three nights i worked Hamish woke at around 4 each time, i was just getting use to him sleeping all night and now he is waking again. Oh well i am just glad i only work 2 days this week and not until thursday so i have a few days rest.

    Deancey - Good luck with work, it is hard getting back in the swing of things again, but also good to feel a little human getting back in the world again. I enjoy a few hours at work but will enjoy it more when i go back to 2 days this week i hope.

    Jess - its great when they sleep longer during the day, hamish has one sleep for around 3 hours and its amazing how much you get done and sometimes i even have a bit of me time to relax. Hamish can also sit very well, he has a very strong neck, i think he will sit before he rolls.

    Sass - glad to hear jayda is improving with feeding, lets hope it was just a fussy stage.

    I best be off to get some washing done, it seems never ending in this house.

    well i think my liitle poo my be starting to teeth. with her bottles she is more interested in chewing on the teat. also she has discovered her hands the last week and is very strong and tries to play with the bottle and when she does this it pushes it out of her mouth.

    abb: jayda is starting to sleep through (i hope) last night she went from 930 to 5 this morning. but she usually wakes at 330. wow about the sittin. jayda can sit for a few secs then falls forward, she tried to pull her self up abit when we lean hear sittin against things which usually makes her end up on her face lol.
    wat age do they usualy start sittin up is it around now or is that a bit early? i only have my nephew to compare jayda too but he was a very lazy bub and everyone carried him everywhere and held him and done everythign for him.

    jayda is gettin into 00 now and 0 wonder suits. i hope she slows down soon. i had so much 000 stuff and half of it she never wore bit of a waste. so i have decided to not buy so much stuff from now on lol. it is so hard everytime i go out i see new cute stuff, especilly now with all the new summer stuff coming out. also it will be good when i can judge wat she will be the following yr so i can buy stuff when they r on sale at the end of the season.

    jess: yay on bubs sittin up. everytime i get excited about jayda doing something she doesnt do it again liek her rolling over. yay on the nice boobs lol, my r all flat and droopy lol.

    we took photos of jayda and her cuz on the weekend they r 7 weeks apart but tegan was 4 weeks premmy and jayda looks sooooooooooo huge. she doesnt look like a baby anymore i nearly cried. looks liek ill have to have another one so i got a little bubby lol. dont let DH read this or he will hide from me for the next few yrs lol.

    Deancey- Hope ur 1st day back to work went well... and hope the boys let u get organised and off to a smooth start.

    Abb- Tiahna had a few days of waking again but noticed the more day sleep she got the less overnight sleep she needed. I find if she has a big sleep at about 10-12/1 pm then she has a smaller sleep at 3.30-5 then we start dinner, baths, play and booby then play while we eat dinner then booby and both kids to bed at 8-8.30. this way she'll sleep til 6.30-7am. maybe 1 wake up at about 4am.

    might have to fiddle a bit with his timing of sleeps and feeds to get the right mix so u get a good night... good luck...

    Sass- Tiahnais in 00 but some pants a shirts are still 000. all in 1 suits are 00 now... IKWYM about clothes .... my first i brought tonnes of clothes this time i had 0000 and 000 and then few 00 and 0 i wasnt sure what size she'd be by summer so now i can get few summer outfits in 0's (dont matter if there a bit big... ) they have some gorgeous little dresses and outfits 4 summer.... cant wait. Also i'm sure that if all of us on her got together with our bubs that they would all be different size... i wouldnt worry too much... i think its much better thinking bubs is bigg then worrying that there not putting on enough weight.

    Hope evryone else is well

    well work today was better than expected. Liam didnt co operate with feeds however, he fed at midnight and then 5am so by the time 9 came around ( an hour after getting to work ) my boobs were getting hard and full. I ended up expressing at 12 during lunch it took no time at all.
    DH had the house spik and span when I came home with was awesome. I bathed Jordan, fed Liam, we have had tea and now Liam is in bed and Jordan is soon to follow.
    Dont have to go back till friday now so a few days with my boys again.
    Oh how I missed them

    Glad to hear things went well Deancey, ikwym about missing them when your at work, i enjoy the first few hours but then after that i count down until i can go home and have a cuddle.

    Last night was terrible, i was so tired before i went to bed now i am exhausted. Hamish fed at 9pm and went off to bed fine then woke at 11.30 (unusual) fed then back to bed woke at 2.45 fed and wouldnt go back until 4 then woke at 6 fed and then again at 7.30am. I am not sure why he was feeding so much but i am so sore this morning hope he gives me a rest for a few hours now. Wondering if it maybe a growth spurt? He hasnt slept through for 4 nights now, but i have just got my period for first time four days ago could that be the problem, not sure do they feed different when you have your period? I hope it doesnt continue, feels like he is 1 week old again.

    Deancey- Glad to hear things at work went well even if Liam wasnt as settled as you hoped. I'm planning to go into work and ask for more time off... I just cant imagine having to go back any time soon... It took so long to get our second and i'd like to spend more time here with them if i can. The lady i job share with made out like they would let me go if i asked for extra time but i guess i wont know til i ask. i'm entitled to 12 months so its only an extention .We could use the money but in the end i'm spending that on child care anyway.

    As for boobs feeling full mine are like that from overnight feeds... except the last 2 mornings... I;m worried my supply is dropping.... there just not filling up as much and now Tiahna is having both sides every feed. I have a GP appointment on thursday so i'm hoping i'll get something that will boost the supply... Dont want to stop just yet but also because Tiahna still refuses a bottle. I tried this morning as she slept all night and knew she'd be hungry... she just screamed the house down and kept pushing it away...

    Abb- there was a thread about bubs fussing at the breast while AF is around... apparently it gives the milk a different taste due to hormones... I hadnt noticed with myself but we we had 4 days last week where Tiahna was waking 1-3 times a night but i found that she was sleeping at wrong time in the day and when i sorted that out she came good and now we've had 3 days of her sleeping through again.

    Last night Tiahna was so grumpy... she had horrid wind and i just couldnt relieve it for her. I gave her donnalix at 4pm and by 5 still no relief (usually works quickly) i fed her again at 6 and she kept fussing and pushing the boob then grabbing it , screaming then sucking again.. it was aweful. I gave her some infants friend and that didnt work. So at 7.30 i gave her nappy free time (the house was so toasty warm) she kicked about and would not stop farting,.... it was grose. But at least it helped her get the wind out. She was finally in bed by 9 after a finaly feed. (DS went to bed at 7.45... YAY) And Tiahna and DS both slept til 7 .15 this morning.

    Hey! I'm back...
    I've been stupidly busy, trying to get stuff packed to move house, and working, and trying hard to keep my DS entertained... he's too alert!
    Wow, deancey, great first day back at work! It must have been so hard, but nice to get back to the "real world" for a bit. Hope the feeding schedule gets sorted for you. Congrats to your DH for being such a star! Can I borrow him?? My place is a mess...

    Abb - we've had a similar thing happening here, with unusual feeding times thru the night last week. I think it's possibly a growth spurt (could he get any heavier??) but also our routine has been pretty disrupted for the last week or so, and there's boxes and stuff everywhere in our place, so that is definitely mixing things up a bit. I haven't had a period yet, but that doesn't mean I'm not ovulating. Last week the chocolate cravings kicked in, which is a sure sign for me! Bad timing.

    Jess - same thing here with the wind, but it happened at 2:30 this morning! I spent ages massaging Aadi's tummy, and doing everything I could to try and relieve his pain, but it wasn't until I put him back on the change table and got his legs up in the air without the nappy that he really let go! It's hard to know whether to laugh or cry! Farting like a champion... bleurk! I'm so exhausted this morning, and Aadi is too, I think. He's grizzly and grumpy, and usually he's cheerful and talkative. Of course, we're supposed to go to mothers group this morning, and he'll be an overtired, chucky little rascal by the time we ever get there. Great way to make new friends - spew on them! lol

    Sassy - wow, I hope for your sake Jayda's not getting teeth yet! It's possible, but they're growing up so quickly as it is! I hope it's just a phase, and you get another month at least before the teeth show. I worried that Aadi might be starting teething as well, because he keeps drooling and jamming everything in his mouth, but apparently the signs and symptoms can start a few months before the teeth show! Right now I think they're just experimenting with new textures and tastes. I hope so. I want my bubba to stay a bubba just a little bit longer too!
    "Usually" babies start to sit up around 4-6 months (according to J&J books!) but can't really sit for very long unassisted. Aadi pulls himself up to sitting if I hold his hands, but he also tries to pull up to standing, which is freaky. We're also moving into 00 clothes now, but that's mainly all-in-ones and PJs because the cloth nappies are a bit bulkier at night (wishful thinking - he might sleep thru again!) and jumpers, because they're going over a few layers. I've found most of the Bonds stuff in 00 is completely the wrong size and shape though, and I dont think I'll buy anything else from them.

    OK, sorry to everyone I missed... I have to get going. Too much to do! Be back next week maybe. Thank goodness my mum's coming down from QLD to help me move. I'd never get there otherwise!
    Have a great day!

    NaNa good luck with moving, well done on getting help from your mum. I have only moved once and that was enough for me.
    Jess sorry to hear you had a streessful afternoon but bonus on the good sleep overnight.
    Abb bummer about the night feeding. its terrible when they revert back to less hours inbetween feeds. I hope tonight is better for you.

    Well last night Liam fed at 5.30pm he then didnt wake till 2.30am then 6.30 this morning. It was perfect. Lets hope he stays like this from now on. I would like his last feed to be a little later but the 6.30 am feed is perfect.
    Well I had to go into work to fill out forms for my pay so took the boys in, they loved it, they got heaps of attention. Then off to the post office to get stuff to send of school applications and then home.
    Both boys are in bed which is perfect. Liam due up about now so will see what happens.

    Sarah hope you and Juliette are doing well, Zander too.
    LMK Hope you, the boys and Abbie are doing well also.
    sorry to those I may have missed
    take care

    Well Tiahna has been so grumpy today but i'm slowly recognising her grumpy signs more quickly and trying to sort them out. She's having terrible wind issues still so if i'm still having issues within the next week i'll book into see the osteopath or chiro. I just snuggled up with her while she was having bad pains just talking to her and massaging her just basically trying to comfort her. She's now asleep and hopefully is DS stays quiet she'll stay asleep for a while. DP left for work at 2.30 so hoping that DS will be quiet in front of the telly so i can have a cuppa (am now) small relax and back to doing something with this darn house. I just cant keep up. (i know i should get off this damn thing....)

    Deancey- Good to hear the boys behaved and loved the attention. YAY on liams sleep... hopefully he can stick to a routine for u. I know i'm blessed this time around to have such a great night sleeper... DS was aweful waking every 2 hours while Bfing and when we switched to AR formula it went to 5 h sleep then every 3hours... I know what its like and just glad my little princess is doing well at the sleeping./.... would never have thought i'd have such a good night sleep when i was preg...

    NaNa- IKWYM about packing... we've moved lets see... about 5-6 times.... the last was while i was preg... its not fun at all... the worst is packing to unpack and its not like you have time with a baby. just glad we dont have to move anymore... phew.....
    It's hard to know whether to laugh or cry! Farting like a champion... bleurk!
    ROFL.... Its worse comming from my little princess... they sound like Big Fat man farts... and they STINK.... EEEEWWWWEEEEE... But i find no nappy time is when she is able to just let go the best... It must be all the kicking of the legs.

    Today Tiahna did one of her explosive farts followed by a poo... DS was asking to help and when i took the nappy off he screamed out AHHHH YUK..... then he was telling Tiahna "you did a POOPS... " but the way he was saying POOPS (really pronouncing the P's so he almost spat) She was laughing so hard at him... the more she laughed the more he kept going... she thought it was so funny i have never heard her giggle so much yet...

    Oh as for teeth... Tiahna has a bit of a sharp bit but it keeps going up and down. Sometimes u can see white and others just a little lump. hopefully it will be a little longer before it pops up fully... ouch on the boobs... Milk supply is still a bit on the low side today... am drinking heaps of water, tea, milk drink but not making much difference yet... fingers crosses a dose of the maxalon will boost it back up again...

    Forgot to say Sarah and LMK- hope things are going ok... Few people MIA.... have to go back the the 1st thread and see who's been MIA for a while now...

    ok, so I'm back already! I just have to take a break from everything for a minute, and I was working on something totally boring on my computer anyway... excuses excuses! Aadi has just discovered Hi 5 on tv, and it's keeping him enthralled and happy for a few minutes, but it's NOT something I will encourage! They're so cheerful, there must be something wrong with them. Oh, that's right! They couldn't possibly have kids of their own... gee, I'm too cynical.
    This will be the 37th time I've moved house (yes, that's right, 37!!) but the first time with a baby, so I'm REALLY glad I'm going to have some help from my mum, at least just for the bond-clean I'm going to have to do next week some time. I don't really have any other friends or family here (all overseas or interstate) so it's a challenge when DP is at work. Aadi's quite a handful during the day, as he only sleeps 45mins-1 hour at a time, 3-4 times a day, which is ok, but I'd prefer it in 2 big blocks. I'm still struggling to keep to the feed-play-sleep routine, and trying so hard not to let it become a play-feed-sleep one, because feeding to sleep will only cause problems later, and I dont need that.
    Ok, I really should get back to this work now. I wish I hadn't agreed to do it, I just need the $$!
