    Well we had our weigh in at the maternal health clinic today

    :shock: Jordan weighs 8.8 kilos :shock:

    He is officially off the scale in weight now. He is only 61.5 cm long so in the 50th percentile for his age.



    Maternal nurse said not to worry as he will slow down in the weight gain and that I was doing a great job with the breastfeeding. I feel alot happier now.

    What are everyone elses measurements. I would be interested to see Jordan against the others..... I hope he isnt too huge. [-o<

    Tracey - Dylan is 65cm long, head circ 42 cm and weighs 71.2 so around 90th percentile for all...

    Melissa - I nearly did drop Dylan unintentionally when he was about a week old. I have a habit of waving to my dog when I walk into a room (don't know why!!) and I came sooo close to doing it once when I was carrying Dylan. I couldn't believe it! I actually did just take one hand away but reacted fast enough that he didn't fall. So, amazing as it seems, I can actually belive it happens!

    Bonnie - glad your folks are ok. Hope your bbq goes well. My dh has to work tomorrow so I'll be having a quiet aussie day!

    Hope everyone else has a good one!

    Hi!

    Nothing too much happening for us. Yesterday I was sooo tired (just started taking some iron tabs again) that when Louis woke I took him into bed with me and fed him in there so I could doze! but it actually mucked up the whole day! He wouldn't sleep for more than 40min at a time and was just so cranky - today we got back to our normal routine and he had just over 2 hours sleep over lunch! it's amazing how getting into a good routine can work!

    He's doing really well - wants to sit and stand all the time and is grabbing toys and actually picking them up and putting them in his mouth. Clever little thing.

    He's still waking through the night but he might cry out and then he must go back to sleep because I only hear him again a couple of hours later so I assume the self settling is starting! woo hoo.

    Kazzy - Glad to hear that everything turned out ok!! Hope your backs feeling better also. I wish I was having trouble keeping weight on - hehe. I'd still like to lose another couple but I'm at my pre-p/g weight now anyway. I'm joining a gym soon! Woo hoo. It's not so much weight I need to lose as just getting fit again and toning up. I'm about 165cm and 57kg at the moment...54-55kg would be my ideal!

    Melissa - I get bites on the nipple every now and then too at the moment - grrr. I think when Louis gets teeth I will be very worried to keep b/f. Sorry about your af pains - thats no good. I've been giving Louis a bit rice cereal. It seems when he doesn't want it/has had enough he just closes his mouth anyway so Benjamin will either want it or he won't....

    Tracey - Louis is on day 8 of not doing a poo - that's his record so far. He doesn't seem to have trouble getting it out when it comes though but geez he's a stinker at the moment when he farts - hehe. My dh has missed them all too so far. I think its only classified as constipation at the moment if the poos are hard....
    Don't stress about his weight - Louis' 3 month measurements were: 5.85kg and 59cm long but he was born 5lb14 so.....

    O.K - better go - I've got a grizzly little man on my hands...

    Nikki - Yeah on having a night out - that sounds great! Still no af for me yet!! Glad to hear the fires stayed away!
    Don't feel bad about Chantelle - accidents happen - and I'm sure she's fine...
    I'm glad to hear Chantelles hips are fine - thats great news

    Bonnie - Have a good time at your bbq tomorrow! I didn't get into the nesting thing other than to clean the house when I actually went into labour - hehe. Very silly now that I can look at the whole labour process - hehe.
    Your very good for taping that for your dh - I wouldn't - hehe!!

    Tracey - I've booked in Benjamin, to have a weigh and measure up at the base hospital's children's health clinic.

    Benjamin's 4 months old vaccinations are coming up very quickly. I'm glad the panadol worked last time.

    Donella - My DH has to work tomorrow too. But he gets Friday off \/ I do realise about the unintentional thing now, I meant I was baffled at the time, only being a new mum. I did not realise how difficult it was to hold a bub sometimes, especially when they squirm or throw themselves backwards all of a sudden. I do now!

    Very cute Nikki! Look like she enjoys her Jolly Jumper... Dylan used his for the first time a few days ago and loved it. He happily bounces away.

    Dylan is sleeping lots more than usual in the past 2 days. Usually his daytime naps are about 40 mins, but now he's going for a couple of hours. He gets tired more quickly too - after only about an hours play. :-k

    Hiya,

    Nikki - Chantelle is just a cutie pie!! Love the jolly jumper photo. I am looking forward to Eden being able to have a go in hers!!! Chantelle and Eden look very similar in size and shape - must be the good breeding!!! I bet you are looking forward to tomorrow night. When Eden is a bit bigger, we will have to meet up with our DH's at the Casino for a night out. I live going there - have been a couple of times and we stayed over night once when Brandan was three. Our only night away from him. We had such a ball.

    Melissa - Have you been asked to change you ticker?? I had a lillipie ticker and because it took two 'thingie' can't remember what they are, the photo was taken off. I have tried the other ones but can;t seem to get them to work!! I am very good at computers, just not this type of stuff. Web pages are defintialey very tricky for me!!!

    Donella - Enjoy it!!!! He is alot more active now so will tucker out alot quicker!! What a good boy DYlan is.

    Kristie - I agree about the routine. SOunds like Louis is doing very well. It is amazing that 4 to 5 months ago we were preparing for the birth, and now we are interacting with and watching new little people imerging!!
    I was 54 kilow when I got married and everyone was worries I was 'too skinny' I think it looked a little too gaunt on met - I suit a bit of weight around the face. I too need to tone up and strengthen up. That is my priority after my back is better..

    Well, signing off for now. Having a little bit of a rain/thunder storm here. Wish it would rain harder though so the firies get some relief. Heres [-o< that progress is made in all areas effected by the fire.

    Hi!

    Well - after going to bed at 6pm last night as he was zonked Louis is still asleep! I fed him at 10.20pm and it's now 6.40am! Woo hooo. Of course the stupid part is I'm awake and he's not. I woke up at 6am because he stirred a little but he must have gone back to sleep - hehe. I have to learn to sleep through again now!!!

    Kazzy - hope the fires have stayed away - we've had quite a bit of rain here too.

    Donella - maybe it's a growth spurt?? Also hot weather won't be helping either. I know I feel more sleepy in it...

    Nikki - She's just gorgeous!

    Melissa - I've booked Louis in for his immunisations as well - grrr.

    Have a good day!

    Hi all

    Thankgod it isnt 40 degrees again.

    Krisvee - What a great sleep Louis has had. Funny that he is asleep and you are not. Ususally is the other way around and when we want to sleep they dont. Hope you got some sleep after you posted.

    Nicole - I wont be able to make the mothersnetwork this Tuesday as I have to take my dad in for an operation. The group meet at Caroline Springs, Brookside community Centre 9am. If you go down caroline springs bvd, past coles you will come to a football feild at the roundabout turn left, there is a group of shops and to the right is the daycare centre, behind that is the community centre.
    If you want to meet up on wednesday for a drink somewhere I am happy to do that.

    Well we were told to do more tummy time at the health clinic to help shift some of Jordans weight. He isnt too keen on tummy time so we are only spending 2-3 mins at a time on our tummy. He is getting the hang of it but doesnt really like it.

    Hope the rest of you are well and bubs are happy.

    LOVE ALL THE GIGGLES WE ARE GETTING \/

    Hugs to all

    Hi all

    What a busy week phew! Glad it is now the weekend and Dh is home to help. Will has been absolutely perfect this week - I thought for a moment I had swapped babies somewhere He is sleeping 2-3 hours at a time during the day and 9-10 hours overnight. Even when he wakes up at 6.30ish he doesn't want food until 7.30ish so DH gets him up and I get another 1/2 hour shut eye...heaven! I think that it is either he is just over that early fussy stage or that it was something I was eating transferring into my breast milk - this week is the first time he has had only formula. I had my suspicions that he was intolerant to the dairy I was eating (my sis and i were the same) so i was expressing when he normally fed and giving him formula and he has settled so well. I get him weighed and immunised next thursday...

    deancey - i hope jordan gets used to the tummy time soon, Will didn't like it to begin with either. Enjoy the cooler weather, hope it lasts...

    Krisvee - Yay on the sleep, it takes a little while to get into a new sleep routine after they start sleeping through (Will slept through for a week and then started waking up again so I would just get used to one thing and then he'd change it *groan*)

    Kazzy - hope things have calmed down with the cooler weather, *pray* that the fires stay contained and don't flare up again

    Nikki - What a sweetheart! I love the jolly jumper photo too - we haven't tried Will in his yet. I am worried because while he can hold his head it still wobbles a bit, did you have any probs with Chantelle?

    Enjoy the weekend - anyone watching the tennis finals??? I quite like the unseeded guy Baghdatis, it would be nice to see him win

    Just a quick question: can reflux develop at any time? Dylan has not had a problem with it before but today he has been "vomiting" up clear bile which smells acidic (it's horrible!) and he seems distressed by it. He's always a milk spiller, but these "vomits" are clear and come up about 20 mins after his bottle. Does this sound like reflux to anyone who has experinced it in their bubs?

    Also - we had our first infant massage class yesterday and it was fantastic! Dylan loved it and it was relaxing for me also as it was 2 hours including coffee and lots of chat time (we have a group of 4 in the class)

    Donella - I am not sure if Relfux can develop at anytime. I would have thought that at this age though if your child didn't have it earlier then they were pretty safe from getting it. Clear you say - when kids chucky 20 mins after a feed, the milk would unsually be curdled or part digested. Maybe he has a little tummy bug - if it smells acidic then it could be bile?? In one of the forums on health, I have read responses to health related questions from a midwife named Alan - maybe you could post a question. When Eden was throwing up feeds when she was smaller, my doctor told me to bring her in if she 'vomits' three times in a row - after each feed - just to get her checked out. Maybe if Dylan keeps doing it, it would be worthwhile getting him checked out. Let us know how Dylan is going. Hopefully Dylan is just getting rid of excess milk once his tummy has relaxed after a feed.

    Kell - things have really quietened down thank goodness. So glad to see the rain and we had heaps of it today. The fires are now listed as contained - great news. They are investigating though to see if they were deliberatley lit. WIll sounds like he is being a little delight - YAY =D>

    Eden is being a bit 'funny' with other people apart from me and DH. She cries whenever my Mum or Dad talk to her!!!! Really cries - I am not sure if this is a seperation thing or not - my Mum sees her just about every day so it can't be a stranger thing. It is really weird. She is putting her hands to her mouth on purpose now - and really trying ot get toys and things in there too. Her harness is SO tight that it makes it very hard for her. 8 MORE DAYS til we take the thing off. SHe really doesn't like when I put it back on after her bath - she looks so long. SHe has these 'divets' in her legs from where the velcro is so I hope they don;t stay there.

    Nikki - how was last night? Did the kids go OK without you and DH. Give those of us who do not have a life yet the goss!!!! (Kazzy says jealously)

    Kristie - three cheers for Louis 'HIP HIP HORRAY' You enjoy that extra rest!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tracey - LOL about Jordan What a beautiful boy. He loves his tucker and you are doing afantastci job!!!!!! Jordan has been sent to Maternal and CHild Health Boot Camp!!!!! ROTFL

    well we had such a good time last night and i have to say i was not one bit concered or having seperation anxiety,i rang once to see how they were going and the boys were havinga balll and chantelle was being an angel,at one stage chantelle was crying cos she was hungry and my youngest son got quite upset and very anxious and was begging them to ring me so i could come home to FIX her.LOL a bottle soon fixed that and he then ran off to play with the other kids.she slept through till 5.30 this morning for them and they really enjoyed having her and the boys,the boys said they had a great time as they have 5 children of there own and a swimming pool so they were kept very busy,we went to the casino and met up with some friends,we had dinner and then played roullette for the night,we went with $500 in our pocket and came home with $800 so the night cost us nothing and we made $300...wwwooohhhooo.we evn found time to have a bit of a jiggy when we got home(TMI)!!!!!anyway im glad we went but we got home at 2am and i am stuffed tonight.

    Nicole - what a fantastic night out for you both. Its great that you were able to come back with more money than when you left. =D> I am glad you enjoyed the night out and didnt stress to much about being away from Chantelle.

    Kazzy - not long now till the harness comes off and I bet you are hanging for it as much as Eden would be. The little cutie wont know what to do with all the freedom.

    Donella - Glad to see that you liked the baby massage class. That would be handy to know to try and resettle bubs.

    Well tomorrow is D day!!!!!!! Back to work for me

    I am so not looking forward to it. I have started to pack for the day and I cant beleive how much stuff Jordan needs for a day. I have the nappy bag packed, my bag for the expresser and the bottle, my handbag. Then i need to take porta cot to mums, pram and car seat..... I will need to get there early just to unpack

    I am sure there will be some tears tonight and tomorrow morning but hopefully the day will go quickly and I will be back home.

    Hope you all had a nice weekend.

    Hi Everyone.

    What a week.

    Australia day was great. Had a heap of friends over for the JJJ hottest 100 countdown. It was about 40 degrees, very hot, so we got Tristan's new blow up pool out. Tristan had his first little swimmy in the pool. At first he was a bit sooky, then he worked out that it was keeping him cool and he was ok after that. I had a few to drink, so he was on formula. Geez my bb's felt sore by bedtime!!!!

    We went to the softball carnival today. My Mum's team from Kangaroo Island were playing. We were in the sun for only a little bit (about 15min) but we had a sunburn crisis.

    I feel like a bad mummy. Tristan only turned a little pink on his arms below his elbows and below his knees, but I'm feeling really guilty right now. Lucky he was wearing a hat. Smack my hand. A friend who was with me told me I shouldn't feel so bad and that accidents happen. I got home and put paw paw cream on his arms and legs. Then, DH got home from golf and he was red like a beetroot. He didn't put sunscreen on either and he's paying for it right now. Emergency trip to the chemist for aloe vera gel.

    Nikki - Glad you enjoyed your night out. Wow on the extra moolah!!!! Send some good luck vibes my way!!

    I gotta go. Not feeling so great. I'm a bit sunburnt too. I think I'll have a shower to ease the burn.

    Speak soon....................Bonnie

    Tracey - Today was weigh-in day for Benjamin. He was 8235grams, 67.5cms long and has a head circumference of 42cm. Good Luck on your first day back! I'm contemplating going back to work early too.

    Bonnie - I thought I had problems with my DH and bad sunburn. My DH works in the sun all day, but forgets the sunscreen half the time. I had the health nurse tell me, to make sure Benjamin has on the sunscreen and a hat because of his fair skin. I can remember being a kid and my mum letting me run around the beach in the nuddy, but you dare not do it now with all the campaigns like slip slop slap. I tend to agree with your friend though, you can't remember all the time. Oops! Let's hope the pinkness fades quickly...

    Nikki - Congrats on your winnings =D>

    Kazzy - No probs here with my ticker... :-k I have a few I can choose from if I can't have the one I've got now. I've made a few on other ticker sites just in case.

    It's time to go cut Benjamin's toe nails and finger nails. I find when he is sleeping is the best time to do it, because he doesn't wiggle so much.

    Hi everyone :wave: I'm back from my holiday! We had a really good time & Emma coped really well with all the changes.

    I have been browsing, I have caught up with a lot of what's been happening, but not all of it, so bear with me if I forget what's already been covered.

    Have any of your bubs laughed yet? Emma had her first laugh last week - it was awesome!!! I had tears in my eyes it was SO cute!!! She did it again the next day, but hasnt since then, but we keep trying LOL

    What milestones have happened for you all in the last 2 weeks?
