    Finally a moment to type and Maddi wakes from another power nap.

    Been keeping up with the latest goings on.....just never a spare mo

    Welcome to Minimax and Max

    Great news on all the growing babies and to those that are sleeping thru the night well done....Maddi isn't at that stage yet, she wakes once anywhere from 2-4am so it isn't really that bad.

    Hey Mo excellent weight gain for Maddi and I love your ticker pic, Maddi looks like a stunner in the red dress - do you find that bright colours suit her? I find my Maddi suits pink and white and is kind of an old fashioned gal, trendy clothes look funny on her.....

    Went to clinic this morning Maddi weighs on the dot for 5kg and is 60cm, with head circ of 39.4cm so she is doing well, she is taking 6-7 bottles a day of 120ml so even though some days I swear more comes out of her mouth in spews than goes in she is getting enough to keep her gaining weight - 300grams in 2 weeks.



    Must dash time for a bottle - *waving to everyone in da room *

    ETA - Alesha had her Yr 10 formal Tuesday night, how special it was to see all the kids la dee da in suits and dresses, can't believe we have a 16 year old and a newborn - think we will be schooling for lots of years to come. Will add some pics to facebook if anyone wants a squiz!

    Hello Ambah - funny story abt dh that happens with Mandy as well - out goes the bottom lip if Maddi can't see me

    Minimax & Boomba - Am beginning to think maybe she does have reflux but she is not spewing everytime she feeds. Tried to speak to the locum here about it but he told me reflux is the same as wind (I didnt think so?!) and that she would grow out of it. I hope she grows out of it soon if she is going to - I go back to work in about 3 weeks! ONly part-time but still I cant be waking up that often at night and still function at work!
    Boomba - I know what you mean about DH not being able to spend a lot of time with bubs. My DH works about 12 hours a day and every time he comes home we are either almost done with a feed and about to sleep or she is already asleep. He came home during bath time yesterday and she looked at him like - "who the heck are you!?". He feels like she is going to grow up not knowing him and that really worries him. So I told him that he can put her to bed every night.
    Does Myles burp himself? I havent tried just propping her on my shoulder and letting her do it herself - will try that next feed (soon!) but she gives up some really good burps some times.
    I am seeing the Dr (my real Dr) on Monday for her needles so I will discuss possible reflux with him then. We thought she might have reflux earlier but we just dropped her teat size back down and the prob seemed to settle. Maybe it is reflux after all - oh but we did just change formula too so might be that? I dont know!!! Its all sooooo hard!!

    Morning all!

    Yay, I got my new car last night! DH didn't bring it home until 9:30pm though so I took it for a quick spin up the road in my PJ's LOL! I'm dying to take it out today, but I have nowhere to go . It is too much of a hassle loading both boys in the car for a quick drive to nowhere!

    Mo - I don't have a preference for times/days in the new year. Would a weekend be a big pain to everyone? It would just be easier if DH could come and help me with the boys. I understand if it doesn't suit people. Well done on Maddi's growth!

    Celtic - I hope Ryan has recovered from his needles. He is so cute in your ticker pic!

    Amelia - I hope Rhys gets better soon. The poor little man.

    Rebecca - Babies can have silent reflux which means they don't always throw up, but the acids can still travel up their osophegus (sp?) and cause them discomfort. Have you tried Brauer Colic Relief? I find it great at getting burps up. They also do a Stomach Calm which may help her tummy?

    Boomba - Joel was always really unsettled after his injections. I hope Myles sleeps better for you soon.

    Anyway, Kieran just finished feeding, better burp him!

    Rebecca i've tried Maddi on the stomach clam & it works wonders for her, It does make her empty her bowels, which i guess helps her get rid of any left over wind.
    If your FF maybe you could try chaging her to a thicker fomula.

    Trish weekends are fine by me.

    Ursula Maddi has olive skin so when she wears the brighter colours they really bring out her skin tone, White looks good on her & makes her look smaller, pink shows off her figure.
    I guess being olive she can wear almost all the colours
    Love your ticker pic as well.

    Hi All,

    Pretty good night here

    Eliza is at preschool and Amara is asleep, so I don't know what to do with myself LOL.

    Still sad for my friend, Jessica's funeral was last Thursday but we could not go because it was in Tammworth. I saw some photos though and they are so tiny, my friend's wedding ring was on baby Jessica's arm!

    On a brighter note, another friend, who is the Aunt of the baby who died had her baby yesterday - exactly 2 months after Amara was born. A little girl Jamie, so cute!!! Amara and Jamie are going to be best buddies and it is nice to have a friend to talk to who also has a newborn.

    Must go, A is stirring.

    Leah- i hope your friend is coping ok, not that she would be she just lost her baby, i was reading some premmie stories last night and balling reading what some parents ad children go through when it should be the happiest most exciting time of our lives.

    It must have been the day for MCHN checks! I took both the boys today and the stats are:

    Tyron:
    5.4kg (50th percentile)
    58cm (50th percentile)
    39cm hc (25th percentile)

    Nixon:
    12.5kg (50th percentile)
    88.5cm (90th percentile)
    46.5cm (3rd percentile)

    Tyron weighs at 2months what Nixon weighed at 4months!
    almost exactly Nix at 4months was 5.3, 59cm and 38.8cm so his head was 0.2cm smaller lol.

    Tyron is calling BBL

    Hi

    Well back from the paed and OB appointments. L is doing really well.Weighed in at 3.97kgs. Paed said he was small but probably just small in stature (both DH and I are only average height). The best thing I can do is to keep feeding on demand. Spoke to Dr about the vax and he said that they modern vaccines are very good in terms of side effects and reactions. He is supposed to go backin 6 months.

    Ob visit ok too. Nothing much to talk about now it is all over.

    L was very restless yesterday afternoon, after me saying how good he was being. Anyway, he was so tired that he slept from 7.15pm to 3.15am straight. So obviously needed to feed him after that. If only I can get him to do that after 12am. Up then at 5.30ish and then kept him in bed with us as I didn't want to get up to keep doing dummy duties.

    Off now to MCHC for my first mothers group. Should be interesting.

    Trish - great having a new car, isn't it. DH came home yesterday and told me he sideswiped a pole. Our beautiful car is damaged Oh well he will have to arrange to have it fixed as I won't drive around in it in case people think I did it.

    See all you Brissy girls tomorrow.

    Rebecca if it is relux try a product called Mariners infant mixture! It worked wonders for my nephews with relfux, he was in so much pain untill they tried it and they swear by it! Myles soetumes doesnt even burp after a feed! We were burping him religously after each feed when we first came home and now we dont do it all and he is happy, but all babies are different Good luck wil be thinking of you!
    Ursula love your new Av!!!

    Went and got an outdoor setting! I went and sat in the car to feed myles while DH fixed it up in the store and a lady pulled up got out of her car left it running with her baby inside I had a look and the bub mustnt have been any older than 1! she was gone for at least 10 mins! What if that lil bubba got upset or choked on something I was so worried but had to look after myles, by the time we left the carpark at least 10mins had passed and the mum still hadnt come out of the shop! Poor little man!

    Have to go he is calling me again!x

    Lily - What is the stomach clam?? I have grabbed a different bottle (nuk) and some small teats for her to see if she prefers a different shaped teat. Am going to try her on special reflux formula tomorrow to see if that helps at all. Am trying brauers colic relief today to see if that is going to help. Went to the post office to pick up her new toys and while I was there she spewed all over me (and the floor!). This was abut 45 mins after a feed! And I had tried Gaviscon with that feed too so dont know if thicker formual will help but am willing to ive it a go!

    Rebecca-It's by brauers as well, i think it's the same as the colic relief, but it helps with relux and upset tummy's.
    Hope they thicker formula helps. Maddi was a spewy baby on the normal formula, but not on the thicker ones.
    Maddi loves all thing's Nuk

    Well the colic relief seems to have helped a little - she is having a nap. However, silly me, I dont know whether its from the brauers stuff or the bottle! Oh there we go she has woken herself up - will go wrap her little arms and try again

    Alz - I was trying to PM you to give you the link to a reflux support group - they are Brisbane based but I am sure they can give you some useful contacts for NSW
    Lily - Which formula do you use? Is it an Anti-reflux one or just a normal but thicker one? I have S26AR to give a go tomorrow.

    Hi All,

    Sorry to hear you guys having trouble with reflux. I am very lucky neither of my kids have had it. My SIL's son did and OMG! She used the infant Gaviscon and he was a different child.

    Question for all BF Mums - does your bub have fussing days? Today and yesterday a bit when I go to feed her sometimes she just screams . Then 15 min later fine. The next feed she was pulling her head around and coming off and on and leaning back so my boob is going every which way. VERY annoying and a crappy feed for her. Any advice? Still plenty of wees etc so I know somehting is getting in there.

    Kellie - had a squiz at Tahlia's pics - OMG she is too cute!!

    It is cold and rainy here today and I went to put Amara in a Bonds Wondersuit 00 and she is too big for it!!! Porker. Well not in the body but in length, she is over 60cm long now. I had to put her in a 0 which is loose in the body and a tiny bit long but OMG I have a long baby. I am pretty sure Eliza didn't Bonds 0's them until about 6 months.

    Hope you all have a good arvo,

    rebecca My neighbour has an acid reflux baby and has a LOT of trouble (she hardly leaves the house....though I don't know if that is because of him so much...hmmm - he is 9 months old). She has had to take him to specialists etc because his little tubes got so burned he was votmiting and pooping blood. I think she might have left it too long before she did anything, so hopefully you will find something that works for the spewing before it gets bad like that. Wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy!

    Kellie Hope your day gets better!

    Lizzy Yep, I am having the squirm around on the boob baby...he tends to do it then I sit him up and he burps. I think Max is starting to get too nosey as well and just wants to look around instead of staring at my boob! I just keep persisting till I think he's really had enough.

    Ooooo gotta go... He's calling!

    Leah - when Tahlia fusses like that I usually find that she needs a burp too, she starts waving her arms around and tugging at my boob and making grunting noises, but cause she is such a piglet she won't come off cause she wants to keep drinking!
