    Our old thread can be found HERE You may have noticed that the baby details are missing at the start of the thread. This is so parents can post where-ever they feel comfortable without having their details in 1 thread and posting in another and often feeling like an outsider within both threads. We will be increasing signature lengths slightly soon so you can accomadate your babies birth details if you wish and can't already fit them it.

    Love

    Emma - I remeber having to buy heaps of nappies for Lily every week when she was a newborn. luckly this time i stocked up during my pregnancy. We're still got heaps and haven't bought any since before Charlie was born. With the formula though, he's a greedy guts too!

    Well, Charlie is only waking during the night once now at around 2am. So getting a fairly decent sleep now. He's started to love being wrapped now too. It's the only thing that'll make him settle. Oh also, yesterday i was really tired and he woke up around 2am and i was a bit cranky but he gave me the biggest smile ever and it was all worth it! Also got some professional photos of Charlie the other day. We pick them up on 12th December, i cant wait.

    Just wondering too, what size clothes are all your babies still in? Charlie is 6 weeks old and is still in 0000 clothing, 000 swims on him. Which is strange since he was born 9lb. But could also be because he's long and lanky.

    Hey girls!!!!!
    Sorry I haven't been around in ages I have been busy playing with the girls...what great time wasters babies can be!!

    Things are going really well for us, Asha is a total booby machine & has started sleeping overnight for me which is fabulous!
    Tegan, Asha is still in 0000 in most things but I have moved her into 000 bonds suits they started to get a bit short for her. It is so weird because Bailea was pretty much out of 0000 when we left hospital & now 8 weeks on her little sister is still so tiny!
    Are you coming to the NSW Xmas Dinner? Hope to see you there...I will have Asha with me so if you make it she can sit with Charlie!

    Hope everyone is well xoxo

    Things are still going ok here for katelyn she just loves eating and sleeping.

    How awful Kate. I really hope the paed can help you today. Don't feel guilty though sweetie - I know how hard it is to ignore mother's guilt but you are doing the best you can. Kelsey will be fine.

    Emma and Tegan, yay! What great sleepers Gaby and Charlie are now. That's such great news. With the sizes, it depends on the outfit. Tom still fits some 0000 stuff, but with the grow suits he is in 000 for short sleeve and 00 for long sleeve (he has long legs!!).

    Hi Skylear, good to hear that all is well.

    Hi Ally, Katelyn sounds like a great little girl.

    Well Tom had his best night so far last night. He slept for 4.5 hours, then 3.5 hours, then didn't wake until 7:30. Both times I was only up for about half an hour. He seems to have a good night (2 wakes) then a bad one (3 or 4 wakes) then a good one again, but the spacings between night feeds are gradually increasing so hopefully he will be sleeping through soon.

    The benefit of grandparents staying is that they are in the room next to Jack's downstairs (our room is upstairs), so when he gets up in the morning he goes into bed with them and plays for a while. This morning, with no grandparents here, Jack was waking me up at 5:45 with "up please mummy" as he tried to pull himself onto the bed. He stayed in bed with us for about 15mins then got bored. He climbed down and started pulling my arm and saying "mummy up please". When I didn't get up straight away (still trying to wake up) he pulled the covers back and started pulling me again!! Gee they learn fast!!

    Today is Jack's day care day so I'm going to spend the morning washing, cleaning and eating!! I never thought I'd find that luxurious!! Then I'm catching up with friends in the afternoon - one has two boys too - the oldest is 7 months older than Jack, the baby was due on the same day as Tom.

    Jasmine is in some 0000 and some 000 as shes quite long so many of the 0000 with legs don't fit.

    Let us know how you go Kate. I really hope they help little Rylee. I can't believe that you are surviving on such little sleep. I wish I lived near you to come and give you a break.

    Well we went shopping this morning. Thought it was about time I bought some non-pregancy clothes and some xmas presents. Does anyone else feel old when bying clothes now?!?! I totally feel out of fashion!PMSL!! Jasmine slept really well last night only waking the once. BUT she hates shopping!LOL! Just like me!

    Better go wrap some of these pressies as some are for Corey and hes horrible at hunting them down so he can peak!LMAO!

    Hmm, maybe that's why Charlie is still in 0000 because he doesn't wear clothes with feet in them. He's pretty long and quite skinny. So my guess he'll grow up to be like daddy. Lily was the same although she has a bit of a tummy which won't go away.
