    Looks like everyone had a rotten nights sleep last night!
    I can join that club. Shaun was going really well all day. He spent the afternoon at his nan & pop's whilst I went to gym, and we had dinner there & he was perfect. He had a sleep when we got home, then woke and fed, then back to sleep. But only for 2 hours, then he woke up and cried for 5 straight hours. We have no idea why. It looked like an upset tummy - but it was not from dodgy milk this time. Maybe colic or reflux? Who knows. I wish our babies could tell us.

    Sara - I'm so happy for you to be moving to the country. It would be such a great life for kids. It was great to hear about your family, particularly your dad. I've produced the 1st grandchild - so my family are all over him. He's spoilt rotten with affection!

    Scrappyfish - sorry to hear about your IL dramas... can pick your friends but not your family hey? Shame.

    Tannis - you sound like me... up at 2am and online! I should get my laptop stoked up and surf the net in bed!

    Lea - I can't wait for Shaun to start swimming. I used to be a competitive swimmer, so I'm like a fish. I was at the gym today and there were a bunch of tiny kids in the water. They start at 6 months so I'll be signing Shaun up as soon as he's 6 mnths. I put him in our huge spa with me, and he loves splashing about. It doesn't bother him when water gets in his mouth or up his nose.

    Kellee - good to hear from you. And don't you dare feel bad that you are enjoying your family! Glad to her that you've not got PND this time round.

    Mummy4life - I know what you mean about routines getting thrown out! Shaun has been sick twice now (bronchialitis and dodgy milk) - and both times we had to revert to 2 hrly feeds, crying and sleep patterns all over the place. I am just getting him back into a routine now.


    I've been good with gym. I've gone 4 times so far. The two women who run the creche are lovely... and Shaun is on his best behaviour for them! Now I've got to put some effort into eating better.

    Today I put Shaun in his big cot... in his room. Since birth he has slept in a basinette in our bedroom. But he's growing so fast, I don't think he'll fit in it for much longer! So I'm getting him used to the change in environment. Just wish he would sleep 6-7 hours during the night.

    Jodie I wish too.....but good on you for going to the gym!

    Shazz, thikning of you. If it makes you feel any better Darcy thinks it's ok to get up at 4.30 every day. We're also up about 4 times in the night her and I. I usually just cuddle herback to sleep. Too mean to feed her - don't want her out of the routine. Thank God she's getting better at amusig herself.

    Sheree have a great time away.

    Tania it's a really long story, but no I don't like the ILs at all. You have inspired me though and I have asked DH to take me to the markets next Sunday.

    Well I bit the bullet today and sent the ****ie to be sold. He bit Darcy when I accidentally moved too close and Cm nealry ripped his head off. I cried all the way home...

    Hello all,

    Sara – a new house! How exciting! That will be so lovely for you all. And it sounds like Briley is doing so well and you’re not missing too much sleep which is great. Good on you!

    Shazz – poor you with no sleep. I feel your pain, believe me! I really hope you don’t end up getting sick – it takes so much longer to get over anything when you’re sleep deprived. I meant to ask, what kind of work do you do? I’m sure you’ve told me before but I have a memory like a fish! How is it going? And how many days and hours are you working? Hope Ryan is feeling better… might it be a growth spurt? Or the dreaded teething starting already?

    Kim – oh dear – your in law situation doesn’t sound like it’s improving. I must have missed a post – what did they say about you feeding Darcy? Did they have a problem with you bf her in front of them? You poor bugger. Big hugs to you and a big hex on your outlaws! And even more hugs to you because of your ****y.

    Sheree – hope that Lachie’s pain is abating. Poor little guy. Is it getting better as he gets older? Toby seems to be growing out of his colic a bit, so I hope Lachie grows out of the reflux soon too. I think that sometimes they just need a bit of time for their guts to mature properly and deal with the milk.

    Tania – yes, the time does go to fast. I’m looking forward to the time when I get a full night’s sleep again, and for the time that Toby doesn’t wake Charlie up by crying when he’s asleep in the afternoon but at the same time I don’t want to wish this precious stage of his life away, IYKWIM. Hooray for lazy days! Sounded like you had a great one yesterday. BTW, I don’t know if your DH likes beer, but it was my DH’s 30th last week and I got him a book called “The Beer Bible” along with 12 different imported beers to try. Then we went out to this fabulous place called the Belgian Beer Café for lunch and he just loved it. Hope you think of something wonderful to get him.

    Jodie – good girl for going to the gym! That’s awesome. I’m glad Shaun seems to like it too. Do you still visit ozgeek? I haven’t been there in AGES, but I still catch up with Michelle and Briony via their blogs. I’m trying to lose some weight too but I don’t feel comfortable putting both the boys in crèche at the gym yet – maybe I could get my Mum to mind them for an hour once or twice a week. Hope Shaun likes his room too – you’ll probably sleep better with him in there.

    Well there isn’t much to report here. Nearly burst into tears this afternoon when Charlie woke up – he didn’t like me holding Toby and cried for almost an hour. I did manage to put Toby on his playmat and cuddle Charlie for as long as I could, but of course I had to tend to Toby eventually and Charlie was really upset. Then, of course, just when I settled Charlie down Toby refused to sleep even though he was exhausted and went on to scream for about half an hour before finally falling asleep in my arms. Luckily it seems that they screamed all their sillies out in the afternoon because they were both back to their normal perfect angel (well, most of the time!) selves this evening and they’re sleeping now. DH and I are trying to do some invitation for my brother’s fiancé’s kitchen tea and hen’s night (I’m a bridesmaid) and it’s taking FOREVER. Well, DH is doing most of it – he’s a wiz with Photoshop. She (bro’s fiancé) was whinging to my mum that I hadn’t gotten the invites out yet – but it’s still 6 weeks away! And she knew that everything is already booked and that I was going to do them over this past weekend and early this week! What does she want, blood? I’m doing my best. I would love to see her try and organise it in amongst all the other things I have to do (looking after kids, etc.). Right, now that’s off my chest…

    Anyway, better go and help DH. Hope you’re all well.

    Just a quick post, I gotta run.

    Just packing at present and don't know how the hell I will fit it all into the car, might have to leave my bag behind at present LOL. Funny thing is last trip Wade and I did, he couldn't get over how lightly I travelled, I guess these are the sacrifices you make when you have a baby! Glad we are not flying.... My sister has landed back on Aussie Soil yesterday from 2 1/2 years over in London, I was soooo worried, but now she is home I can breathe a sigh of relief. She is coming on the tilt train to Bundy tomorrow and then we are travelling to Mackay together on Thursday, can't wait just soooo I can have a rest too heaps of friends and relies hands so I can have a long awaited kip!

    I have news, I went to the doc yesterday and my spotting is from the mini pill. Not sure if I will get the whole story into you before he wakes and I go to my CHN appt, but here goes. She asked how the feeding is going and as you all know ****E! She said well we are drying those boobies up you cannot keep going on like this!!!!! She couldn't stress this enough, I had a little cry and she assured me I have done all I can do. She said I have persisted for long enough now Lachie and I both needed to enjoy each other and be happy. She said he has enough problems and me persisting is just making them worse as I am unhappy doing what I am doing. She said that Lachie will be a far happier baby and to mark her words. She also said that my papsmear test was a low grade one and that there are a couple of more levels before it becomes cancerous. So she said that there is a 97% chance I will go back to normal at my next test in 6mths. She said I would be very unlucky to be the 3% but if it does go to the next level there is a high chance it will just keep progressing to cancer and that is why they monitor us to get rid of it before the cancer stage. Pheww..... one less thing to worry about. Funny thing is, is that Wade's cousin is seeing the same gyno as me, and believe it or not she too has a breach baby and had a caesar yesterday and you wouldn't read about it a baby boy too! So that is three of us now, Wade's sister had a breach/caesar/boy, so did we and so did his cousin, his other cousin is due in November - WHAT ARE THE CHANCES!!! Freaky hey??? Anyway that gyno told her there is a 1 in 8 chance of something going wrong with the caesar, grrrr... I had to be the 1 didn't I. That is why I just laughed at the doctor re: 3% chance. She said yes you have been very unlucky and it is all Wade's fault he is the sperm donor LOL.

    Anyway she has given me the real pill now to dry up my milk. I have my CHN appt today and I still a little hesitant, but hopefully she will set me on the right path, she is brilliant. This all coincides with my trip to Mackay which I was hoping it will all be sorted and its not!!! Anyway lots of things to consider and too many to type at the moment, lots of ideas running around in my head, but will see what Narelles says at our appt soon. Can't wait to get this all sorted. Will post back once I have got my head around it all! Bye for now.

    Sheree... you sound 'happier' in your post. Maybe 'more relieved' is a better description. With all the stress about your milk supply - it was probably making the production worse. So if you are going to FF - then enjoy it!!! I tried & tried to BF and had no luck from day 1. But I enjoy FF. I know how much my baby is getting. And it's just as convenient as BF. You know, a baby doesn't have to have a warm bottle to drink. Shaun is happy to have cold bottles if he's hungry. I asked the nurse about the bottle temp, and they just said that it is to make it similar to breast milk, but it doesn't have to be warm. I hope you feel okay about FF. You did a wonderful job BF, and you persisted like a trooper!! Full credit for trying.
    Go off and enjoy your trip to Mackay! It will be so good to spend some time with your sister too. Glad that nothing bad happened in UK.

    Kellee - I check out ozgeek occassionally, but it's pretty quiet. I reckon your SIL is asking a bit much of you. Does she not know you recently gave birth...LOL. so sad about Charlie's jealousy... but I guess to be expected. He will have so many good times with his little brother!

    Can't type more... Shaun in my arms struggling to sleep... and I have to get ready for lunch. Chat later.

    i hear ya Vic.... Ryan is exactly the same
    when you figure out a way to get them out of that let me know

    Hi Everyone,

    Shazz: I hope Ryan has been more settled for you today. I know what you mean about needing a full or empty gauge on them LOL, Jayden has been feeding for 5-10mins lately, sometimes its a bit longer but mostly around 10 mins, but he is still on 4hrly feeds and occassionally more frequent.

    Jodie: Our bubs are at that growth spurt age again, so maybe thats why Shaun was so unsettled, I hope he settles down for you too!! I know when Jayden gets really worked up, its very hard to stop him and can go on for a while. I wish I could have our laptop in bed would be much easier, but it has something wrong with it and needs a new motherboard or something and now it needs to be plugged in all the time but the power supply is loose as well so if I move it a little the computer turns off....very dodgy LOL

    Kim: Big to you, the ****ie will go to a good home I'm sure!! I love going to the markets...I might go again this Sunday too hehe

    Kellee: How hard is it? Some days you wish they could talk or walk etc but I'm the same, I don't want to wish his life away either. Unofrtunately DP doesn't like beer, he likes Bundy Rum but he said he doesn't want alcohol (I would if I drank still haha). He said he wanted me to ring Harvey Norman and ask about SLR camera and organise getting one and that can be his bday pressie....he is paying for it but the pressie is just me organising it....I can deal with that LOL. Tell your SIL to babysit for you and see how much of the invites she gets done!!

    Sheree: Well done for persisting as long as you did with all the dramas that you've had to go through, 12 weeks of BF'ing is fantastic!! CHN is right, your not going to enjoy motherhood if you worried and stressed over feeding issues, I know I got to the stage (in the first few weeks) that I was SOOO sore I would put off feeding him for as long as I could and he was on the verge of dehydration within the first week (both his and my fault). Just enjoy the time now I think. I had my pap smear done but they never told me the results (I forgot until now LOL). Did they say it was CIN? Years ago (I was 18) had a pap smear and I had CIN1, I then had a colposcopy and it was CIN2 I got surgery to remove it but 6mths later it came back as CIN2 then dissapeared on its own within the next 6mths and its never come back. Not sure if its the same as what they have told you. The levels they told me was CIN1, CIN2, CIN3 then cancer. You will be fine though!! That is strange that the 3 of you have had the same type of PG/delivery, can't wait to hear about Wade's other cousin!! Just relax for your trip put him on formula while your away then re-evaluate when you get back, or offer boobie to him but have a bottle ready, if he takes boob well n good if not don't stress. Least the bleeding side of it is sorted!! Big to you and have a great trip!!

    Vic: I'm sure you have tried it but does Adam have heaps of toys around him or music on? Hopefully he is just going through a phase and it will pass...did your other kids go through the same thing?

    Well I think the IL's are getting the message, no SIL's have been here lately and MIL dropped in for 10 mins last night to give us food for dinner tonight. We normally go to their house every Tuesday night for dinner but the last Tuesday was niece#2's 17th bday and tonight MIL is going to Human Nature (I think) so she felt guilty and made us something anyway LOL (I'm not complaining!). I was going to go shopping today but I have to see the pics of Jayden on Thursday so I will leave shopping til then. DP is ringing me later and I might meet him at Harvey Norman so we can get this camera...I am so excited I have wanted an SLR camera for years!! Don't tell DP though, I want him to think its his toy so if he spends $1500+ on a toy for him, I can spend $600 on photos for me LOL we'll see if that works hehehe

    Have a good day (whats left of it)
    (I really need to make my posts shorter hey? LOL)

    Yes Tania you are a chatter but I love it, can't wait to meet you.

    So I have made a decision, after speaking to the doctor yesterday I was still well I dunnnoooooo...... But I have made the decision after having a long talk to my CHN and she wanted me to make the decision based on what I want to do not what I am told to do, but agrees with my doctor and if I am going to do it, do it cold turkey as I was considering still feeding during the night when he is semi-subconscious and attaches well, but then I tried him at 7am feed to see if he attaches during the day, and nope he is one clever little bub grrr.... I guess this put me over the line with my deicision, after seeing the lactation consultant the other week she suggested to express for 2 weeks and try him again on my boob and this morning prooved to me that things had not changed and who was I kidding - they will not get better, my baby knows how to work me. My CHN was a little dissapointed at the doc for just telling it straight to me as to this is what I am going to do, but agreed she is right but I have to be ok with it in my mind and it has to be my decision. She asked if I was ok with going the way the doctor had suggested and my response was that I guess in a sense seeing as my boobs were the only thing that were going right with my body (no cracked nipples, no bleeding, no mastitis), I just wanted to hold onto that! but in saying that I have tried everything and persevered for 3 weeks now expressing and it is just toooo hard and very demanding around his regular feeding patterns. She said she thought I had come to the end of the line, especially seeing as Lachie is still only continuing to put on 100grams per week and she would have expected him to flourish by now (he weighed at 4.54kgs - 10 lb today 12 weeks 1 day). Over the past month he has gone from 25 percentile to 10, and now to below 3, so in her mind that was telling me something. So that also got me over the line with it. He has never lost weight and never not gained weight but he could be doing so much better she believed. Soooo yes as you probably have guessed I am going cold turkey and we are going to FORMULA. I spoke to her in detail about the prescription formula he is on and she ensured me that he will be getting everything he needs. I still feel sad that it has come to this, but I am also feeling somewhat relieved that I have made a decision for the sanity of me and my baby boy. You would not believe how much better I feel and that has to rub off on him. So there you go, that is the news. I am going to freeze all this expressed milk and start him tonight so we are ready for our trip so I know he will be ok while we are away, and then give him some expressed milk when we return to get rid of it all. Now I can enjoy our holiday, I can eat dairy and I don't have to 2 hourly express anymore phewww.... so much tension has released from my shoulders it is amazing. Finally I feel good and I just can't explain how happy I feel about my decision.

    Thank you for your support Vic, Jodie and Tanya. Have I ever told you girls I lub you, you are all sooo fantastic and sooo supportive to me I can't thank you enough.



    Oh and Tanya that is exactly what my doctor told me, that it was possibly only CIN1, she didn't get the results from my gyno and that if it goes to CIN2 I will need a colonoscopy etc, etc, etc..... basically everything you said, so lets hope that I am in the 97% that it will just go back to normal at my next 6mth papsmear, as I need a break I recovered soooo badly with my caesar I need a break!

    And then you can both send it down to Sydney! LOL. I have a livewire here too - even in utero she was busy so I guess I should have known.

    Sheree, I'm so sorry I wasn't on this morning to give you support. You sound so relieved though with your decision. You'll be able to rest even longer when you're away as somone else can feed for you too! Have a great time with your sister too.

    Vic the ****ie went back to the bird farm who are going to find him a suitable home. I know they will but I'm still distraught and cried again today.

    Kell that's a nasty bride!! You never whinge and she made you so she's being very unfair!:mad:

    I need to wirte this down so it's putting it out so I can keep a check on it. DOn't read this bit if you can't be bothered. It's really just head work for me.
    In the 6 weeks following Darcy's birth I had quite bad post natal depression and was being watched by everyone - it seemed natural after the antenatal depression. I thought I was over it and have put heaps in place to prevent a recurrence, however this last week I have been feeling that familiar grip again. I hate to say it but I feel like I have had to give up everything I love and am feeling worse and worse. I'm still going with the strategies and if it gets worse I will tell Cam and my Mum, but I just hate feeling like this. Thanks.

    I was thinking... "what toys"... I don't recall mentioning toys. So I went back and it was Tannis that mentioned toys

    BTW Tannis... thanks for mentioning the 'growth spurt'. Shaun has turned feral again... and there is no particular reason for it. So maybe it is the growth thing. My husband nearly pulled his hair out tonight when I went to gym for 1 hour. And what did he do? Gave him a bottle that was sitting on the coffee table. Okay, it hadn't been there all day - but at least an hour! What is his problem??? There are a heap of bottles made up and ready to heat in the fridge. Is it too far for him to get off the couch and heat one up? AAaahhh Men!!!

    Morning Girls,

    YAY another full nights sleep, Jayden woke about 6am but I kept putting his dummy back in his mouth so he'd sleep longer, that worked until about 6.30 then I put him in bed with me and we fell asleep again until nearly 7.30!!

    Jodie: We had a bit of a feral attack last night after his bath, he was screaming and squealing!! I has never been that bad before but as soon as I picked him up (SIL #5 tried) he was fine, I gave him EBM and he was ok but I had given him a top up feed only an hour and a half before, so I think we are going through a growth spurt too. Jayden didn't go through it like Shaun did though his episode was only for about 5 or 10 mins.....I couldn't handle that for 5 hours!! Men are just too lazy!! But in your DP's defence, at least he can look after Shaun for an hour, I'd be lucky to get 10mins out of the house without DP ringing me, unless one of his sisters is here to help him!

    Well today I HAVE to do the housework....ooh and my tax I keep forgetting about and with a bit of luck by this afternoon I will have this new camera and you guys might not see me for a few days while I'm playing with my...I mean DP's new toy LOL

    I'll check in later, have a great day......and all you bubs out there, be good for your mummy's today!!!

    Morning ladies ... sorry I have not written for a few days ~ still new at this.
    Firstly (this is probably a silly ?) - how do I enter my dd baby stats at the top of the page?

    I'm not quite sure where to start as you all know each other so well.

    Katy's been on and off these past few days. We decided to try her on normal Karicare as the AR formula seemed to give her a major upset stomach. Exactly 2 1/2 hours after each feed whether asleep or not she would start screaming . . . for exactly 2 hours. She would then "let it rip" and all would be good again until 2 1/2 hours after her following feed. She was unable to burp so I assumed it was the formula.... too thick.
    So now she's back to vomiting half of her feeds but seems happier. No more screaming.
    I am not sure who mentioned blending the two formulas, but I am keen to try that. My dh does not think it is a good idea, but he is not the one who is at home with dd all day. Why are dh's so negative? I tried to explain that its okay if the brands are the same but he wants dr's proof before I go ahead with it. arrgh.

    Kim: pls call me when you are feeling this way. You poor thing I did not realise what was happening. *hugz to you*. I'd come right on over if I could but you know my travel situation. (Self inflicted... )

    Jodie: I don't know what it is with men and bottles. Don't they understand the importance of fresh formula? It would be like us reheating a cuppa after it sat on the bench for hours. Yuk.

    Tannis: My dd went feral after her bath last night too. She's normally so relaxed as she loves the bath, whinges a little but never this feral. Never thought it could be a growth spurt. She's learnt how to splash and by the end of her bath the floor is saturated and she's washed the kitchen windows yet again!

    Well that's it for me... better go have a shower before it clicks over to pm...
    :O)

    Marlea9,

    Sorry to hear about the hard time with the formula. I know what you are going through. I changed formula about 5 times before I found a decent one for Colic. If you want to try it is called Novalac and there is a formula specificaly for Reflux as well. If you want to give it a try as that brand worked for me after trying all the others.
