    didi - i am doing BLS.. Mia eats what we eat. Minus curries and things. I have always been told by my MCHN and peads and my GP, that its fine to let her have meats. Pead in melbourne reccomended it. Its not like im giving a juicy bit of steak. The tuna was in the pasta bake she had. The mince was in sheppards pie and the lamb was from a jar (just the heinz organic, 7-9 months old) this is coz shes not good with purees and its mashed rather than purred.

    She had some corn with her potatoe and pumpkin today.. im interested to see the corn come out the other end tomorrow coz she swolled it whole. She is getting so good with her chewing now so its been to easy to give her things like toast.

    Hi ladies,
    Had a pretty crappy day all round. I got a call from the hospital today and it turns out that Olive has salmonella poisoning! We are absolutly mortified. They think and we think it is from our chooks. They are pretty much free range and even though DH wipes his feet and takes off his boots we think that it has somehow gotten into the house and as Olive is so mobile now she has picked it up off the floor as she likes to lick the floor boards ATM as she getting around. We are on notice to go to hospital if she gets worse or doesn't improve. It's hard though cause she is whingy etc to us but other people probably just think that it's normal baby behaviour. She also spewed for the first time tonight. I'm worried but hopefully she will get better without intervention. She is pretty happy really for a baby who is obviously sick, poor thing.

    hj - all the nsw health websites state that babies shouldn't really have meat until 8mths so I personally will stick to this recommendation especially concidering that Olive isn't even 6mths yet. Wheat isn't recommended until 12mths as it can lead to allergies and celiacs disease or wheat intolerance but apparently it is ok in small amounts around 8-9mths. Obviously it's a personal choice but it might be worth doing some reading, I find the whole thing very confusing.
    How's the new house?

    didi - sorry to hear about Jorda, do you ahve a date for the MRI?

    I thought the point of all food at this stage was for their experimentation and to get them used to the whole eating new foods thing rather than for specific nutrients - hence milk is still the most important part. I also thought I'd read iron starts depleting around 4 months...? 'Babylove' (by Robin Baker) recommends meat as part of the introduction process. Having said that I haven't given Liam any meat yet. As for teething putting bubs off eating, it makes sense. If your mouth hurts you probably don't want too much food...? Why does all the information have to be so conflicting??!! I guess it comes down to that good old mother instinct again. ....my instinct is tired.... hehe

    hi everyone,
    its been a while!
    jacob now has 2 teeth! both bottom centre, I think the 2 top ones are starting to come thru now too....had no probs with the teething, if anything just made him a little more serious.
    he is now sleeping from 8:30pm thru to 6:00am-7:30am, so he has pretty much dropped 2 feeds with no problems! which is a big woohoo for me with the extra hours of shuteye!
    havent even thought about starting the jman on solids yet, hes almost 10kg on just breatmilk, even though he is showing a bit of interest, dh and I have been doing a bit of research on it, some very interesting stuff out there, very conflicting advice....I found one website that reccomends exclusive bf till they have all their teeth....cos in the old days (ie before blenders etc) thats what used to happen, also another interesting thing about solids only starting to be introduced so early coinciding with formula feeding becoming the "norm" (back in the 40s and 50s) I dont know what we will do yet, but its been fun just reading all these different oppinions!
    in regards to the car seat- I havent turned jacob around yet, I was really looking forward to it cos I knew he would hit 9kg earlier than most, but it is so much safer to have them rear facing. there is a thread around here somewhere with a youtube video of crashtest dummie babies in forward and rear facing seats....made me think twice.
    hoping to be around a bit more now, still catching up on whats been going on with you all and your bubs.
    hope you all have a fantastic easter xx

    Same here, Julian decided to come two days early, lol.

    Didi Happy birthday for yesterday, hope you had a great day.

    OM sorry to here Olive is so sick, hopefully she will be getting better soon.

    Happy Easter everyone, I hope you enjoy your babies first easter.

    Julian cut his first tooth on Wednesday night, so that explains all the night wakings and the grumpyness. We went and visited my mum and dad on Frida and came home just before the easter bunny last night. The kids had a great morning so far and have limited their chocolate in take for now....going to have hot cross buns soon, yummmy.

    hugs xoxo

    Mia has been very cranky these past 2 days. Not screaming, just very clingy and very whingy. She has a slight cold so i dont know if this is why, but shes not normally like this.. and its more just a cough and the sneezes. So mayb teeth? Im not sure... im abit stumped really.

    Happy easter everyone =) we arnt doing anything.. nice quiet one at home.

    Hi Girls,

    Happy Easter, hope you all have a nice day. I am home with my 2 girls coz DH is at work so I have been trying to do house work. I am so sick of doing house work!!!

    OM - Poor Olive, hope she gets better soon. You must've freaked out when you heard thats what she had.

    Didi - When is Jorda's MRI? I hope everything will be ok. Happy Birthday for yesterday, hope you had a nice day/night.

    I haven't turned Lara's carseat around yet either. I'll be waiting a while yet, even though it is easier to put them in forward facing. I also haven't started her on solids yet either, I'll wait until she is 6 months. Lara goes to sleep around 8:30pm - 9pm at night and usually sleeps anywhere from 7am - 8:30am but for the last few days she has been waking at 5:30am. I know its still a good sleep but its driving me nuts. Most times I put her dummy back in and she goes back to sleep but other times I have to give her her bottle. Still no teeth but she has a very swollen gum and a bit of a cold so not sure if her bottom tooth is on its way.

    Gosh DD1 is driving me nuts already harping on me for Easter eggs. I haven't had any yet but its very tempting but I am trying to be good. Havent done any exercise since Fri though.

    Gotta go, hi to everyone else!

    hrrmmm this teething thing gets a tad confusing doesnt it. I spose we wont know they are actually "teething" until they cut a tooth. Hopefully sooner rather than later..

    I know what you mean Hollye. Lara is my 2nd baby but DD1 never had any problems with teething at all. They'd all just come through without them even giving her any discomfort. I hope Lara is the same.
