    Can't see the light this has been going on for far too long now. I was telling Kim this arve that I rang a feeding and sleeping clinic in brissy this arve and she said I was doing all I could do, feeding him every 3 hours and re-offering the same bottle for up to an hour. She offered me no more advice and surely they have more up their sleeve then that! She even asked me if I had a CHN and that was after I had been talking about her for the past 5mins. Geez wasn't even listening, I was crying and everything on the phone to her (just slightly) and told her how stressful it was and she just kept saying that is all I can do. Bollocks! She said why don't you get your CHN to feed him and my answer was well she probably would only that she has admitted that she is no expert in this specific area and you guys are the experts! Don't know why I bothered!!!! It just really is the hardest job in the world feeding a child that won't feed. She didn't even ask us to come down and that is what my CHN was hoping for as we really need help.

    Just mix more water with it until it is smoother Nat, or formula.



    Too funny about his hair standing on end.

    Awwwww big hun!! I can't imagine how difficult it would be for you. There is light I promise! Hows that support site going? Can they help you anymore? I can't believe the hide of that woman - it sounds as though she wasn't listening at all. Are there other places you can call? I wish I could do more to help - I really do!

    They have a good reputation normally and they are the closest too us - 4 hours away, hoping it is just one rude arrogant lady as my CHN wants to do a referral and send us anyway but feel like it never going to get better from her attitude. I kept telling her tried that tried that and she just kept repeating it, and I just kept saying I just said I have tried that and done this. Grrr....

    That's what I said Nat - not good enough! Funny I also mentioned the pic too! LOL.

    Well the energiser woman here is struggling to wear herself out.

    I'll let you all in on a little secret if you promise not to tell anyone....Cam has started taking himself offf to WW. I'm just waiting for him to get back. He was so cranky with himself for forgetting last night, he has been ringing me all day to find him a meeting tonight so he can see if he has lost this week! Dag. Bit over no junk food though. He doesn't like me eating in front of him but it's worse when i sneak it (and I feel like I'm cheating him anyway ). He felt so bad for me today he bought me a block of choccie -hmmmm aero mint.

    Ohhh I sooo need to do weight watchers as well Kim, I reackon I could give the weight to lachie no problem at all!!!

    Lachie is drinking badly today:
    65ml
    80ml
    80ml
    60ml - and he just cried and cried with this bottle
    Gosh 285ml how can that possibly be enough!

    I am wondering if that yoghurt is upsetting his reflux. Will have to cut it out tomorrow and c what happens, but geez that is all he will eat atm.

    Wow you girls have been chatting up a storm tonight!! I must have logged off at the wrong time!! I've also been knocked off the email notification thingy. How do i get back on there? I posted in the forum for the mods this arvo but no-one has replied yet (if any mods are reading this i am not whinging!!!! LOL).

    Just finished cleaning up again!! Now i am in between Mcleods Daughters and the computer!! I am going to try and finish up here before that new show of TEN starts at 8.30. I can't even think of what its called! Stepping Lightly??? LOL..I don't know!!

    I would just like to say how much i think that Sheree is doing an AWESOME job at being a mum. You have been through a whole lot of crap and still are and you are still powering on. You are an inspiration!! Keep up the good work!!

    Nat - It is a spin out that you and I have so much in common. Who woulda thought!! You can meet great ppl in weird places hey. Even if they are at the other end of the country!!

    I need to start WW or something too. I am just getting bigger and bigger. Its quite discusting really. I used to be really skinny, then i fell pregnant the first time and its been an up hill battle since then. I just can't shake it. Thats also part of the reason they think i might have PCOS. That and various other factors. I was going to join Jenny but i am too lazy really! You have to be motivated to lose weight but.

    Gee thanx for ur support girls really appreciate it.

    Sara you are too kind, you made me cry with your kind words.

    Wow Vic, I want one of those sleeping babies, no fair, but so you should have with 3 others, good for you.

    Kim - that is fantastic news, WTG Cameron



    Lachie has drunk 345ml today, yep that's right his last bottle was 60ml. Not good at all. Have to get a couple of dream feeds in but to do that we have to stay up, bugger.

    Bugger that clinic, can't believe they made me feel like there is nothing anyone or we can do! Wade is going to ring 2morrow and not say I rung and see what response he gets.

    Ok well I bit the bullet and went to the dr this arvo. As I suspected a preg test showed up negative. But even if I am pregnant this came as no surprise. With Jovi I did a test when I would have been 4 weeks pregnant and it showed negative. 2 weeks later when I started feeling a bit sick and nipples were hurting like hell it showed up positive straight away (as soon as the pee hit the stick ... lol). So dr has sent me off for blood tests. Have to take Scott to the hospital for physio on Friday so will do it then. Should find out sometime next week I guess.

    The dr was funny ... she was like so what will you do? And I was like oh this would be totally unplanned and unexpected, but absolutely would keep the baby. Abortion so not an option! Yes unplanned, but never unloved or unwanted. She was cool about it.

    I used to put a bit of farex in Jovi's bottles when she was first starting out cos she was too little for full on food, but needed to bulk up fast. A little farex goes a long way to help this.

    As far as no cow's milk for first 12 months ... unless your baby's on soy or something like that, all formulas are cow milk based anyway ... so really they are already drinking it. I think they mean FULL cow's milk, like what we drink ourselves. Yoghurt does have some in it, but not like what we drink I wouldn't think. Anyway ... as long as they don't have a reaction I don't think there's a problem with it.

    Vic ~ WOW I wish Em slept that much!! Instead heís always crawling around or getting grumpy at me like he is right now hehe!

    Hey do you include what formula you use in making solids up in how many mls bubs has a day? So I take about 180mls of formula to make Emís weetbix Ė is that included in his formula intake for the day? Ugh Iím feeling sick again. About to go and sort 100+ photos so I can get some prints in the next few days. Just getting SMSís from DP who is away with work Ė he misses me already awwww! He only left today LOL!

    ETA - I missed a few posts there. That's what I thought Beck. The logic just didn't seem to work for me there for a second hehe! GL with your BT - we'll all be hanging for the results LOL.

    Oh my god you girls can talk!!

    I started reading them all but my eyes are going all blurry cause I'm so tired!!

    Sheree I am so sorry for that horrible day you've had....if I didn't have to work I would have been there in a flash!! We'll catch up Saturday for a swim though yeh?

    Jayden had his checkup today he has gained 250g in 2 weeks so he is now 6.86kg. We also went to Big W and played with all the xmas toys (we'll have to get quite a few for Jayden I think hehe) Also looked at ornaments but none really looked.....hmm right IYKWIM? Ahh well will spend the $$$ and get the one from target maybe or get my mum to look around in melb there might be a better range down there.

    Work is crap I hate it!! No its not that bad I just hate being without Jayden! I wish I didn't have to work.....I just can't believe how tired I can get! With work, a child, a house to look after, food to buy and cook and ATM because DP is on N/S I have the animals to look after as well..........Sorry for the whinge I know there are a million other women that do that and probably more but I'm not used to it!! haha

    I'll get around to personals eventually

    Have a great night girls

    Tania - I can't imagine how hard it would be to adjust to at first! Sometimes I find it hard to get my dishes done LOL so I'd be stuffed as well! LOL @ playing with all the toys! I can't wait to buy "The Night Before Christmas" Book. My mum always read that to us on Christmas Eve and I can't wait to start that tradition with Emerson!

    Just off to rename some photos ready for printing!

    Just a quick one gals I am expecting Wade's sister any minute now.

    Just want to thank you for all your support, I would honestly be lost without all my gorgeous friends.

    Well we got up 3 times through the nite to give him a dreamfeed and even then we only got to 550ml for the day.

    8.30am - 65ml
    11.45am - 80ml
    2.45pm - 80ml
    6.30pm - 60ml
    9pm - 85ml (60ml forced, 25ml dreamfeed)
    10.45pm - 70ml (dreamfeed)
    1am - 60ml (dreamfeed)
    4.30am - awake 50ml

    What an exhausting effort (and alot of these were with alot of fuss). Kept setting my alarm to get up to feed him.

    I really think the yoghurt upset him just seems too much of a coincidence.

    But i must admit one good thing is that my boy goes to sleep all by himself now during the day with a little fuss, but not too bad, I give him his bye bye and he pulls it over his face and eventually he goes off. YAY! Things are looking up in that dept, now there is a plus.

    Back for personals later.

    Morning Girls,

    Am abosuletely buggered today. Was up on MSN till midnight chatting away and then up again with Briley as 8am. I feel crap!! Self inflicted though!! I can't really complain though cause she slept from 7.15pm till about 6am. The disturbed sleep before must have been from hunger. So we are finally back to our normally sleeping pattern.

    Today some of my family from down south are arriving for my Nan's suprise 70th on saturday night. So briley and i are going into town this arvo and will prolly be staying for a couple of nights. Some of the family have'nt even seen Briley yet. One cousin did'nt even know i was pregnant to start with!! She was quite shocked to say the least.

    Got up thismornig and watched Meet the Fockers...fock that's funny!! LOL!! Briley was little miss talkative while i was trying to watch too!

    So yeah plan today is to tidy up house at little. Go into town and get a few groceries. Come home and drop off groceries. Feed the dogs and lock them up and the back into town. I HATE days like this...up and down the range like a yo-yo!!

    Whats everyone else up too??
