    Hi girls,

    Wow there's been lots of chatter since I was last in here! Great to hear such positive things about your babies' developmental leaps.

    Gussyboy has learned to roll from his tummy to his back in the past couple of weeks. He detests spending time on his tummy so I think he's worked out that rolling is the quickest way to get himself out of this position. He thinks he's very clever when he does it and gives a huge beaming smile once he's made it onto his back. He's got very poor head control on his tummy - possibly because his head is still disproportionately large compared with the rest of his body and also not uniformly shaped so weight distribution is a bit off. We really need to get him happier with spending time on his tummy to get the back of neck muscles stretched and stronger. He's great at holding his head himself when held upright sitting or even when held in a superman position - but just not on his tummy.

    Gussy's got a weirdly shaped skull (it's called plagiocephaly) and was born like this due to all the weeks he spent inutero with his squashed down in my pelvis once his amniotic sac had ruptured. His head is shaped like a parallelogram. Tummy time is a great way to keep the weight off his head to try to encourage the skull sutures to move into a more correct configuration. We're currently looking into helmet therapy. It's kind of like braces, but for the skull. It looks a little like an open bike helmet and puts pressure on parts of the skull to try to encourage it to move back into shape. We've seen loads of specialists who are all saying a head as misshapen as Fergus's could (not necessarily "will", but "could") take 12-15 years to correct. Agghh imagine the teasing he would get with a head shaped like this for sooooo long. It would be awful for the poor little tike!

    There's some evidence (although it is pretty controversial) to suggest that wearing a helmet can help speed this process up. We went to the cranio/neuro clinic at the children's hospital to find out more information. They confirmed Gussy's a likely candidate for the therapy, however there's no guarantee of success. We would like a couple more opinions from different specialists before we go ahead with the helmet. I figure we'd get at least three quotes before we did some work around the house - so I should get a few independent opinions on the therapy (esp as it is controversial) before we make our decision as to what we'll do.

    We went to our paediatric physio this morning to get some more exercises and strategies to get him on his tummy. Cause spending time on his tummy would help him to keep weight off the back of his head at least while he's awake.

    Aghhhh poor little tike. He's got so much spunk for a little fella.

    Hope you and your bubs continue to be well and happy.

    Kirsty your positive attitude is such a credit to you! I hope you get something sorted about the helmet. Does it cause any other problems or is it mainly the look of his head that is the worry? As you said, it would be so hard for him at school & great if you were able to help the process. All the best with it.

    Emma had a MCHN visit yesterday. Her weight gain is still quite slow, now averaging 90g a week, but the nurse wasnt worried. She said if she was hungry she wouldnt be sleeping through the night. She also noted how active Emms is and said its no wonder shes not putting on more - she's burning it all off! So all is well here.

    Sorry for no personals, I have just read through everyone's posts, I wasnt getting the reminders, but I will try to keep up again now, I promise

    Hi all

    we've had such a busy week. Molly went to the specialiast at Westmead and she has to keep the brace on for at least another 3 months but she can have it off four hours a day and can start to try walking - which she is already doing! Also she used her potty today for the first time yay!!! so she is almost ready for preschool.

    Will has been ok - a bit unsettled but not too bad. we still wrap him, I haven't tried not wrapping him as he's been unsettled so i don't know how he would react to it. we still have to resettle him a few times a night, he usually does a poo and that wakes him up after a change we put the dummy in and he drops off again. He is now sleeping from 9.30 to 6 (it was 7 but suddenly he started waking at 6 and won;t go back to 7). He is now in size 0, and i can hardly keep up with him! He isn't rolling yet...

    Thanks for all the sympathies - Nan's funeral was yesterday and it was hard but good to catch up with all the relo's I havent seen in years.
    Both kids are sleeping...peace! so I am sitting back watching cricket final

    Kirsty - I think it's always a good to idea to get more than one opinion, I hope it works out well whichever path you choose.

    Have a nice weekend everyone...

    thankgod its Friday!!!!!!!!!!!! I am started to love weekends more being back at work.

    Kirsty - you are such an inspiration. Gus is such a little trooper I am sure everything will get sorted out with his head shape. Jordan didnt like tummy time up until about a week ago. He will only stay there for about 3-4 mins and then he gets tired and grumpy so we roll him back over.

    Nicole - Sorry to hear that Chantelle had a bad day. Atleast the good days out number the bad.

    Kell - Sorry to hear that Molly has to keep the brace but at the end it will be well worth it.

    Linda - Good to see that Emma is doing so well.

    Jordan spent all day with his daddy today as we had no babysitter so DH took the day off. He took his 2 bottles with not much fuss and slept pretty well which is great.
    He slept last night from 7pm thru till 8am this morning. I fed him at 10.30pm and 4.30am. I found that I needed to stay up till about 5.30 to burp Jordan but as a result he had a sounder sleep. Usually he grunts and grunts as he is still windy. I have got to ensure I dont rush him back to bed just because I want to sleep............SELFISH MUMMY

    Hope you all have a wonderful weekend

    Kirsty - I hope the docs say Gussy is a good candidate for the helmet and that it works really well. He's such a little fighter though that the other kids wouldn't give him a hard time. As a teacher I've seen lots of kids who have various reasons you would expect them to get teased, but if they have a good attitude and a strong personality the other kids won't pick on them.

    Kell -bummer about Molly needing her brace longer. Excellent on using her potty though!

    Tracey - I went back to work this week, but very part time and I'm fitting it around dhs roster as much as I can so he is getting lots of daddy/son time. I think he enjoys it (I hope so...)

    Linda - love the new photo of Emma!!

    We got a pleasant surprise this week - one of my students mums is a real estate agent, so we got her to appraise our house, and she said it's worth a lot more than we thought. In fact, she thinks we'll make 100000 profit easily on what we paid 3 years ago!! So we can now look at much nicer properties than we thought. Just as well after the crap we saw last weekend! So, I'm off to look at 2 more places tomorrow in a much more satisfactory price range. \/

    Kristy - Who ever thought that a helmet, could do these woderful things, besides keeping your brains in when riding your bike. There was a program on the helmet therapy on the ABC a few years back, that I vaguely remember. It's amazing what a helmet can achieve.

    Kell - Nan's are precious things. I miss mine too.

    Linda - Was Emma asleep or just looking down? Very cute though!

    We had to go the doctor's for a second time this last week. Benjamin developed conjuctivitus, out of nowhere. He woke up lunch time Wednesday, and his poor eye was red and mucky. Our doctor fixed him right again with some gel stuff that I had to put in his eye. It was a bit like vaseline. In one go, it had just about all disappeared.

    Hi!

    Well, I'm feeling a bit tired! - Louis didn't sleep well last night at all. Grr. He has decided that he won't sleep longer than 6hours without a feed again and even woke every 20min for an hour after his feed which just about drove me crazy! I think I'm going to have to start trying to stretch him out again to 8 hours as this getting up business isn't working very well - hehe. He's also having 2 meals of solids so I really don't think he's needing the 6-7 b/f he's having a day and I'm sure my supply is fine....The joys. Other than that though he is being a good boy! He's getting so big. (well for me - not compared to most of your bubbas -hehe) Also I think I'm going to have to start getting him used to having a drink of water after each solid meal as he cried when he did his poo today. It wasn't that hard but harder than it has been for him so I felt so bad for him...

    We're about to head off to get his 4m immunisations...not looking forward to it.

    Dh took me to Luna Park on Friday night which was soo fun. He had a great time and lots of laughs. It was nice to do something where we could relax and just have fun. Of course I got the guilts up later when our babysitters said that Louis had screamed for 1 1/2... I think he must have been overtired... poor little boy. Then Sat morning my teacher called me up sick so I had to go and teach and Louis stayed home with dh but wouldn't have the bottle so he screamed for another 1 1/2....my poor little boy. Sometimes I wonder if I should be working at all. But I wouldn't be able to buy him his cute little things if I wasn't....hmmm. He got his first pair of flannelette winnie the pooh pjs! Their so cute!!

    Kirsty - Louis started to get that. He still has it a bit but luckily not too severe. Poor little Gussy - What a strong little boy! The helmet sounds like a great idea to help him out. We also had to make sure he was sleeping on his not flat side so we changed his cot direction and his change table so he'd be looking out the other way..

    Linda - Emma sounds the same as Louis re weight gain. Although he's stopped sleeping through the night now - I'm sure he's not hungry though as he's still going 4 h through the day between milk feeds...

    Kell - Bugger about the 3 months but at least she can have a break from it each day! What a clever girl to use the potty! Glad Will is going well too!

    Tracey - Glad Jordan is doing well. That's great he takes the bottle so well - I wish Louis would do that! I think from having a couple of months at home with no need for a bottle he just won't take it now. Kind of makes things difficult when we go out.

    Donella - Yeah on your house getting valued - that must make you feel so good!!!Good luck house hunting.

    Melissa - Poor little Benjamin - glad the gel worked so well!

    K -gotta rush to the dr - Haven't even had breakky yet!

    Hi Shannon!

    Louis was on 5 feeds per day before solids and is now on 6-7 bf with solids - thats why I was just hoping to go back to 5 b-feeds.

    He did really wellwith his needles! Had a big sleep afterwards so I think that helped a bit.

    Hi Nikki - Emma has her needles today at 10.45 and I'm nervous too!!! I'll think of you! I have wondered about the car seat too - Emma holds her head up well, and I often have her half sitting up in the pram, but I'm not sure if they need to be able to sit up to be turned around? Good question....

    Good luck with the needles!

    Louis had his yesterday and was a bit grizzly but seems ok. He seemed to have a bit of a temp this morning but I took his pjs off and he cooled down so I'm not sure...

    With the car seat - I think it's best to keep them the backwards way for as long as possible. If you think about it it would be so much better for them in an accident for their little necks. I keep Louis upright in the pram now also when he's awake. I think my pram says 8kg anyway but I'll keep him in it as long as he fits.

    I know - I had a stupid dr yesterday who said that it doesn't hurt that much - I said well I suppose their not used to being *****ed with sharp needles all day...idiot. He also didn't use any swabs and didn't put any cottonwool over it so by the time I got to the desk Louis had bled all over my clothes. The nurse there went and got some little bandaids for me. Definitely don't want that dr again.

    Sorry for the rant!

    ok,we are home now,my poor little sweety bum,my god she screamed and screamed,i have never heard her cry so hard,i just wanted to make her all better but she was inconsolable,she screamed for about 10 minutes and was so exhausted that she fell in a heap and is now sleeping.
    we are having new granite bench topps put on today in the kitchen,never ending around here my dh loves renovating and improving our home,although he has found another house he wants to buy on an acre and is a dream,we are putting in an offer on thursday night.
    linda and kristie did your babies cry much with there needles.
    as for the car seat i weighed chantelle on my scales and she is only 6.2 kilos so a bit small to change the seat around i think,i had the seat installed by toyota but im just not sure that it is right or maybe i am doing something wrong cause her legs are hanging over the edge of it and almost hiiting the seat,she is not too tall,infact she is short in length,there is plenty of room above her head but the tilt of the seat would have her sliding back down,maybe i need to have a look at the straps or something
