    Congrats to Mason and Blake!!

    Hey, can I ask a quick question about solids? Mia's been on solids for the past 2 weeks now, and all she'll eat is rice cereal. I've tried introducing some fruits and vegies, even only a tiny little bit mixed in with her rice cereal and she just spits it out straight away. Is there any other way of getting her to eat something other than rice cereal??

    Happy birthday Kristen!!

    Can I ask a quick question, do any of you feel dizzy, shaky, extreme fatigue? The only thing that really bothers me is sometimes I feel tingles in my hands and feet. I am so worried about it all and am booked in to see a specialist next week. DH thinks it is because of having a baby but I am so worried that I have been crying alot. I am so worried that it is going to be something serious and then I think of Julian and Pat and what the future might bring. Oh its just so depressing

    Hi Jan, it sounds as though you may have PND. Good idea to see a specialist and get thoroughly checked out.

    A few of us have been in that boat and its not pleasant, but with help and support you can get through it

    Thanks for the warm welcome, it'll be nice to speak to other mums with babies the same age. My mum came over from o/s for a few months when nattie was born so i didnt join any mothers group and my friends are in the getting engaged stage or just married. Happy Birthday to kristen. So you having a huge 21st bash or? geee...its not easy throwing a 21st every year thats for sure
    Nattie is on 2 solids a day but refuses veggies so i know how you feel kristen...here i am thinking that she will end up with diabetes as she loves sweet things (accept for pumpkin!!) She spits it out and rubs it all over her face (she likes to make a point)
    I make her cereal as follows- 1 tbsp cereal, 1 tbsp fruit puree and some formula. She really likes this. Have tried with just cereal and fruit and it's and a no go. Have you tried this combination?
    I almost put some formula into the potato mash yesterday..but decided against it. Also, have you tried banana?

    Yay for Mason and Blake on toothy pegs.

    Kristen - I've been struggling with Izzy on solids too. The only vegies she will eat are pumpkin and sweet potato, but its really hit and miss and never mixed with her cereal - she only seems to like it on its own. This morning I mixed some pear into her cereal for the first time and she ate heaps more than normal - I don't expect it to last until tomorrow though! I'm not sure she even really knows what's going on yet.

    Tan - oh you poor old thing, ha ha. Try being 38 next year!!!

    Mez - I didn't join a mothers group either. Izzy had really bad silent reflux for the first few months and the thought of taking a screaming baby out wasn't much fun.

    Jan - so sorry to hear you're struggling. Easy to say, but try not to worry about things that might not be until you can see your doctor next week. Are you eating enough and regularly? I get shaky and faint if I haven't eaten in a long time, and its certainly easy enough to put your own needs way down the list when you're looking after a bubby. It could also be that your iron levels are low. Lots of things that it could be that are really simple, easy to fix things so please try not to stress about it. You, Pat and Julian have a long and wonderful life together to look forward to.

    I GOT MY NAPPIES TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay. So exciting. Except that I want to use them now but I have to wash them first. My DH's cousin in Melbourne uses Greenkids - has anyone come across them? Might have to get one of them to try too - I'm so bad.

    Thanks girls, I will try those suggestions too.

    Lulu - yay on the fluffy mail. Yep I have some GKs too. They are a lot bulkier than the Hautes no snap down front part etc, but a good nappy all the same. Very easy to stuff.

    Jan, hmm, I'm not sure. Perhaps something with your iron levels? I don't know! I know my heart problems a while back scared the bejeezus out of me so you're not alone I hope the tests come back ok

    Quick one here! We are off to a wedding this weekend and its down on the coast so we are staying there tonight and tomorrow night - should do interesting things to the sleeping pattern

    Had to let you all know that Izzy has decided its great fun to LICK THE FLOOR!!! OMG so gross! I put her on her play quilt which is massive but she just rolls and pulls herself until she is on the floorboards! So I was watching her and she put her head down and licked - eeewwwww! The joys of a moving missile! Luckily the floors are clean but still- that's so yuck!

    Anyway enough about my terror - to all the gorgeous May mums and bubs!! I hope you all have a fab weekend and will catch you all soon!

    Tan, Angus licks our floor also!! He rolls until he is off the rug and sucks the tiles! He did this at my Mums also, how gross!!

    Oh, just a selfish post really from me! I have had the day from hell and think I need to vent and go to bed! I woke up sick this morning with sore throat, clogged nose etc etc, AF also decided to come back with a vengeance, and then... to top it all off.... I was walking from the car with groceries and Angus in my arms, and as I was walking up our steps (only 2) I tripped and fell, dropped the groceries and wrapped my arms around Angus to protect him but fell full force onto the concrete on my knees. Was so horrible, Angus was screaming cause I think he got such a huge fright but luckily was unharmed, so I sat there and cried too!! Now my knees are grazed and bruised and I can hardly walk.. So I am feeling very sorry for myself!! What a day!! Hopefully tomorrow will improve!

    Oh, also Angus had his needles yesterday and was such a good boy he barelt cried! He also had a wt and stuff. He is 7.9kg, 67cms long and hc 43cm, so is growing nicely along the average line!!

    Good night evyone!

    Hey girls,

    Sorry I haven't caught up in ages, my PND meds aren't working real great at the moment and I've been having a hard time.

    Leo got two teeth at once but has been pretty good considering. I started him on solids last week but he doesn't like them. He's about 9.5 kg and massive and still fully BFed apart from the solids, but he won't eat them anyway. He sucks all night and it's driving me bonkers. I can't put him in his cot at the moment as he rolls over and plants his face in the matress and wont' move it and I'm worried he will suffocate.

    He is sitting all the time now and getting onto his hands and knees and rocking, so I think he will be crawling soon much to my dismay.

    Got migraines also daily at the moment, I don't know WTF is up with my hormones. Also got endometriosis back and PCOS, been getting scans and it's causing me a lot of pain so will be looking at surgery next year.

    HOw many mum's here converted to cloth? Was it LuluHB I read has? GreenKids are great, we've got a few (i got the sea turtle one) but Leo has a bit of a problem with PUL so I put them on him only occaisionally. We use mainly baby beehinds bamboo and hemp with fleece covers. I got a wild child day dreamer last week though, it's beautiful, called Monet's Garden. I've been using wild child night nappies for some time, they are so gorgey. I'm also into iishfly at the moment. And Im waiting on some Zada's. Okay, MCNs have become a bit of an obsession with me LOL.

    I'm going to go back some pages and try and catch up with some posts...am worried about Ashlee and hoping she's posted recently.

    Hey! Thanx Dan, I feel a bit better today!! Although have 2 very grazed knees which are very unattractive!!!
    Tara, hope things improve for you. Angus was wanting to feed all the time also, but is so much better now that he has a hang of solids! He has 3 meals a day and will eat anything and everything! Sorry to hear about the endo/pcos, hope it gets sorted soon for you. Yeah, we are using cloth also. Although has been raining all week, but sun out today so will get washing! I like the BBH also.

    Jan did you add me to facebook? Havent been on in a few days! Is so addictive hey!!

    Take care everyone!

    Hi everyone!!!!
    Ok time for personals, lets see how we go with them!!! Sorry if I miss anyone, I'm being lazy and only going from the start of this thread!!!

    Lulu - I hear you about the christmas present shopping, this year is more exiting for us than what it will be for Ethyn!!!! How are your new nappies going?: I love cloth nappies too!! I have started to use cloth at night, got my hands on a couple of green kids dreamy nights pocket nappy, I stuff it with a bamboo flat, a hemp booster and an overnight booster from my peapods and he can last the night
    Shelle - I was starting to worry about Ethyn not wanting to sit properly, now he can do it for about 5 seconds, but he would rather go forward and either play with his toes or roll onto his tummy, and bumping his head in the process, then laughs!!
    Welcome Mez and little Natalie, how are things going?
    Tan - Thats great about getting a bit of work and still able to BF Izzy!! How's the floor licking going!!! Ethyn likes to bang his head on the ground when he's on his tummy. Hope the wedding went well, how was Izzy's sleeping?
    Kristen - hope you had a lovely birthday the other day!!! How are things going with the solids? We have only just introduced solids to Ethyn on Monday, tried him on apple today and he seemed to love it, he opens up his mouth when the spoon comes in and cracks it when I don't do it quick enough!!!
    Jan - How are you feeling? Please keep us informed on how you go with your specialists, we are here for you if you need us
    Hi Tara - How's Leo's teeth going? How's it going with solids for you? I know what you mean about MCN's becoming an obsession!!! I am looking at going back to work sooner, so I can buy some more!!
    I've got facebook too if anyone wants to add me!! I need some more friends, feeling quite lonely with only 12!!!! PM me for details

    I have joined everyone else in the 6 month mark!! My boy is growing up!!! Can't believe how quickly things have gone!
    There's not much else that is going on at the moment with us, he is sleeping and feeding well. Gave him his first bath in the big bath the other day, normally he is in his baby bath, its an old one, so think its bigger than the newer ones!! We also gave him his first swim on Saturday, he didn't quite know what to make of it, but he got there.
    Hope everyone is well.

    Michelle - you poor love. Glad you're feeling a bit better now but that fall must have really scared you. I know its what worries me most with a 2 storey house is that I'll fall down the stairs with Izzy in my arms - especially now that all that beautiful pregnancy clumsiness is back in full force.

    Tara - sorry to hear life is a bit tough at the moment. Hopefully you can get your meds sorted out to get things back a bit rosier. You sound even more out of control than I am with the MCNs. I've been really happy with them so far, but I think I need to get some bamboo inserts for my little wee machine!

    Tan - Izzy doesn't lick the floor yet (thank God - the cat is losing her winter coat and the floor is covered with hair!), but when I was out at a cafe with her the other day with a GF she was tapping on the window next to our table, and then leaned over and did huge raspberries and licks on it. Ewwwww. Left the window looking just lovely for the next people! How was the wedding?

    Lee - they are all growing so fast aren't they. I can't believe you've managed to stay in a small bath until now - Izzy was bashing her head on the side by about 6 weeks I think (more to do with her frenzied splashing than size!)

    Well, very crappy weekend in our house. I was up 4 times on Saturday night, which I thought was pretty bad until last night. She didn't go down until 9.30 pm and then DH got up 7 times before we finally brought Iz into our bed. That still didn't work so just after 4am this morning I just gave up and sat up with her. I'm sure she's got another tooth coming through, but geez its tiring. Nights like this make me think that if I ever won lotto I'd hire a night nanny

    Lulu, thanks, yeah my knees are better! Just noticed you are 19wks - WOW!! When is your scan again - sorry I know you have said but have gone blank!! I cant imagine what it must be like being pregges and having a bubba to look after also. Must be so tiring at night, are you resting during the day?? Glad to hear you are enjoying MCN's! Very addictive-yes!

    Lee - Yay, you found me on facebook! That site is also addictive! If only I had as much motivation to clean the house as I do being on the d*mn net all day!

    Tan - love your photos from the wedding!! You all look fab, love Izzy's dress - she is adorable (potential gf material i think for my boy....)haha

    Wecome Mez and Natalie!!!

    Jan - How are you going? Did you get to the Dr? Hope all is well.

    Ash - how are you? Hope everything is going ok.

    Hello to everyone else!!! We all must be busy cause it has been a bit quiet in here!

    Well now, my naughty boy... Yesterday was the day from hell. You mayh have seen my post in bf help, but all day yesterday my boy wouldnt bf!! I couldnt believ it. He was relatively happy but not interested in feeding, everytime I put my boob near him he bit me! I thought i may have been tooth related (he has none but his gums arent red or swollen either), needle related (had them thurs) AF related (she has come back) or I DONT KNOW RELATED!!!! I was so worried about him getting dehydrated cause his nappies were quite dry, so I expressed about 4pm yesterday and he sculled the lot from a bottle. I was so upset and confused, but anyway, overnight he fed constantly, was really restless and tossed and turned all night. Has just woken up from his sleep and had a beatiful bf and is back to himself. He did do a big huge sloppy smelly poo this morning so I am thinking he had a belly ache and just didnt want to feed as he felt sick. So fingers crossed he is ovr it and can go back to my normal happy booby boy!!!

    Ok, everyone, hope you have a lovely day, take care!!!

    My scan is Wednesday Michelle. I'm really stressing about it now - another one of my baby buddies has just lost her baby (that's three of us this time - so incredibly sad). I really haven't had much movement from Ned so I'll just be relieved to get it over and done with and find him/her happy and healthy in there.
