    I have been lurking a little, just not up for posting.

    THANKS FOR THE BIRTHDAY WISHES! I had a wonderful day. DH was home early from work so we went shopping & BJ bought me 2 x charms for my pandora bracelet that the IL's gave me. DH bought me the Wii so of course I had to try it out last night & of course my back is suffering today My back was feeling so great yesterday, and I over did it... It's sore again today. I'll be keeping away from the Wii till next week. I am able to walk around, straight, but still have to wear a back brace for support. It's very difficult lifting BJ out of his cot, off the floor etc, but I'm just being very careful.

    TANYA I just wanted to mention that I also didn't think BJ was ready for solids.. DH was pushing the issue & then the GP said to start him on a tiny bit to help with the iron.. Low & behold,,,,, He took it like a champ. He was so ready for it & I didn't even know. He never spits it out, takes every mouthful, gets so excited when he sees the cup & spoon I feed him with, opens his mouth for every spoonful. Of course DH was "I told you so"... I have started soooo slow. Just 1/4tsp of Farex for 3 days, then a heaped 1/4 tsp for a few days & slowly building up that way. He's been having it for a couple of weeks now & is still only taking 1/2 tsp in the morning + 1tsp at night (plus added EBM). So I would recommend giving it a go, just with Farex, cause you just never know.

    RE: BF necklace... My MIL gave me a thick chained necklace with 5 big beads on it (for my Bday) & BJ LOVES playing with it when feeding. I was also going to get the one from Mothers Direct but found this to be just as affective. The chain is a snake chain so durable. I'm not worried about it breaking, it wouldn't hurt BJ if it did as he's mouth is on my BB so no chance of swallowing the beads

    BELFIE I definately wouldn't worry about X's weight. That's fantastic. BJ was 7.9kgs a week ago.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MATT TODAY

    SAMI Hugs for you for yesterday.

    CSAB Hugs for you too... I'm sure you can make the asprin just a part of your daily routine... GIve V a kiss from BJ

    Oops.. BJ needs attention. BBL for the rest of the personals xx

    i reckon I'd like to throw out my dirty dishes sometimes!

    Quiet on here today! My boy is currently a bit grizzly - more teething activity I think. Had some friends over for lunch, she's 20 wks PG with their first... very exciting for them. Busy day otherwise... BBL the grizzles just came back!

    Oh dear, now I cant scroll down as I type through the previous posts cos it is a new thread ... have to use my fuddled brain ...

    kuraiza - noone puts more pressure on us than we do ourselves I think!! But I have actually had quite a few people say recently - you must be about due to stop b/f soon, and one of them was a friends hubby so that felt very awkward - like it was code for "put your boobs away!" - and = how long are you going to b/f for? Talk about extremes.

    Amanda - whats with this let-down limbo business - I just dont get it - thougth it might of been the stress of thinking about having to express to go out today etc .... but I am still having trouble - I am really surprised he isnt hungry - must have some good juice that keeps him going hopefully

    Georgi - Hi! Hahaha - I thought you threw the routine out, are you back with it now? And the solids thing is really unpredicatable hey - but glad to hear it is going well.

    belfie - movie was ok, just girlie drivel, but what i needed.

    katones - what did you decide on re the cot?

    Hi to everyone else ... I cant remember posts from previous thread

    Zander and I are 10 days away from 6 months b/f and then I will get over that psychological barrier. Today he only took 100mls EBM from the bottle - but he took it - and then DH gave him some rice cereal and sweet potato mixed in - and he had about 4 good tspns he reckons. Maybe it was the time of day and kids were home etc when i try during the day he couldnt care less when everyone is out. Who knows, maybe 100mls is all he ever takes from me anyway??!!

    I'm still havin huge letdown issues - and cos I have end of April in sight technically for b/f for easter camping and travelling to Vic for baptism middle of April - i think I am stressing myself out. Just like you were saying Tanya

    SAMI I can't believe people are making comments that you're still BFing... I thought it was the norm. All the babies at MG are still BF. I remember reading somewhere that 80% stop BF around 3 months but I can't see that. I think it's so normal to BF till 12 months
    Yep, stuck with the routine & IT"S WORKING YAY! I threw it out for 1 day as he still woke through the night. But last night he slept through.... I just stopped feeding him in the middle of the night the night before. I hope he sleeps through again tonight. I was thinking he would just do it himself (as he did before) but now I realise I need to help him along by re settling during the wee hours rather than feeding. He has always had 5 feeds a day but since the routine it turned to 6. I am really enjoying the routine. Loving it actually. I love having the set times. It makes planning so easy. Plus he's now in bed by 6pm so there's no cranky baby to attend to during cooking & dinner time.

    Glad to hear your movie went well.

    Sami how did the movies go? hope you had a great time.

    katones big hopefully the portacot will give you some extra sleeping time tonight.

    Well I think I solved my problem with my let down, I think when I don't eat as much as I need to it must affect the quality of my milk and the amount, as yesterday and today he hasn't been as unsettled.

    Julian turned 5 months today, I can't believe how quickly this is going, Sami how are you coping with Z, been your last and all, I thought that they would stay little a little longer then this, lol, getting all sentiment.

    I'm going to see a pyschic tomorrow, so will see what she has to say.

    hugs xoxo

    Hi all. I ended up having a PC free weekend.

    On Friday I mentioned that I had a blocked duct. Well I was trying hard to unblock it but nothing was working and I started freaking out that I was going to get mastitis. I even ended up sending DH out to buy an electric pump! But that didn't work either. Then finally on Saturday morning Maya finally took that side and it drained!

    On Saturday we looked at places to live and we applied for one today. On Sunday we went to a baby market. Then my MIL came round in the arvo and stayed for AGES and drove me nutty with all her advice as usual. I just try and ignore her now.. but she does get on my nerves. I know she's trying to help but why can't she just let us do things our way!!

    Today I took Maya to the GP to see if there's anything physically wrong that will explain her small weight gains. The GP didn't find anything wrong. But I have to get a wee sample of Maya's and that's still to be checked out. I think she'll be physically OK. I think I just don't have as much milk as I used to and I'm also not getting good let downs. I'm really hoping the electric pump will help to increase my supply now. The doctor also thought I should maybe give some formula feeds. But I'm in two minds about giving her formula.

    Sami & Amanda - It sounds like we've all been having trouble with supply and let downs. I really think mine is from stress and from Maya not feeding enough for a while now.

    kuraiza - Yeah I agree that their is real pressure to breast feed for minimum one year.

    Georgi - Another reason I'm not introducing solids yet is because breast milk (and formula) have more calories and I want to try and put some fat on her skinny body. So I think trying to get her to take more breast milk or formula is the answer for now. Glad to hear the routine is working.

    katones - Good to hear you have Jack's sleeping arrangements sorted.

    Hello to everyone else!

    Hello Hello!
    Just a quick pop in to say that Bethany and I are flying to Sydney tomorrow for a 2 week stay with my mum. Everything the past weeks has been a bit much and I need the break. Where better to have a break than with your mummy? We fly out at 5am! Ewww but anyway atleast Bethany should sleep most of the flight down.
    I hope to be back later to say bye bye, busy day ahead packing and getting organised.
    Have a great day all

    Freaking tired today

    We have decided to take solids off the table for a week - literally for Zander. Since he has started he hasnt been overly interested so only had maybe a tsp per time max - and every night he goes to sleep fine, but thenfor the next 2/3 hours - he cries out every 20 - 30 minutes and we pick him up he feels comforted and is fine to go back into the cot - I think he has tummy pains - he hasn't poo'd since Friday which is not like him every day - so thinking the iron in the rice cereal etc is playing with his tummy.

    Will see what happens for the next couple of days. Have tried massage, deep warm baths, drinking warm water, infacol - so will see what nature brings the next 2 days and if nothing will get some professional advice. No comments about b/f babies and 10 days please girls, cos Zander poo'd every day so out of character for him.

    amy - have a great time in Sydney - you are very lucky to still have your mum to look after you

    katones - did you chat to DH to find out what he is actually concerned about with Jack in his own room?

    amanda - yes, at times I will zander not to grow up too fast - and then other times I cant wait to get over what phase he is going through lol. He looks so big now, and I too cant believe he will be 6 months next week!

    tanya - glad to hear nothing is wrong - so hard to get wee samples from little girls too!! who knows, she might have a uti - something simple as that! My letdowns are ok again (again I think it was stress like you!!) and supply, well, i just figure if Zander was still hungry he would cry or not sleep or want to feed more than he does - same for maya?

    So now I will try to continue b/f until he is over this poo issue and introduce solids again.

    belfie - whats going on with you - how is mr x's grumbles???

    I am so out of ideas of what to have for dinner with kids too - i am feeling slightly over it already today. I am sick of making food that Giselle will only pick at - but today is child care day and she has a cooked lunch so for dinner if she has a sandwich i just dont care.

    Off to plan my day!

    SamiH..i think Dh's issues are about SIDS...and the fact he likes having him close...i already said to him..he is like 2/3 steps away...'oh but i won't sleep if he is in his won room." was his reply... anyways we have bought a sound.motion moniotor(the one that picks up no breathing for 20 secs) and he is going in his own room...no if/buts about it...

    I wonder how PP is going?? anyone heard from her??
