    Celtic - "they" say at this age a bub should have 8-10 hours overnight (with feed/s) and 2-3 sleeps during the day of about 2-3 hours. Having said that, DS usually does 2 sleeps of 2 hours (but sometimes only 1.5 hours) and the third is a bit of a shocker (usually his morning sleep). Hope you get some answers at the drs tomorrow.

    Trish - glad the adjustment at the chiro seems to have done the trick. Stop beating yourself up, he could have hurt his shoulder 100 different ways!



    Um ma - I'm eating a maccas sundae....seriously need to start working on dropping a few of these extra kgs I'm lugging around...

    Trish - glad to hear Kieran is all fixed up... I know exactly what to do when Tahlia sleeps till 8.30 - I sleep too!

    Becky - way to go on the weight loss.... I've started back at the gym now so hopefully I can budge a few kgs too! The cadbury macadamia chocolate I'm eating while I type this is not going to help though!

    Peta - the pram fitness class sounds like a great idea, a good way to meet other mums too. I'll have to investigate if they have something like that in my area

    Celtic - I'm convinced Tahlia doesn't sleep as much during the day as she is supposed to though, after sleeping about 10 hours overnight, she'll have a long 2 hour nap in the morning, then only about 2-3 40 mins naps after that until bedtime again. I wish I could get a longer sleep in the afternoon

    Evening all

    L has been doing 2 x 2 - 3 hour sleepsduring the day, the same in the evening, and then about 5 hours overnight. Last night he slept until 4.15am which is earlier than usual but at least he wasn't up at 2am.

    Trish - we are thinking about moving. We only have 2 bedrooms atm and even with his limited amount of stuff we are starting to burst at the seams. Would be nice to have a house we can grow into.
    Becky/Brissie girls - Thursday next week is ok with me. I would prefer Garden City.

    Anyway, feeling pretty tired so off to bed. Hopefully I will sleepthry to 5am (or later).

    See you tomorrow.

    Morning all!

    Well, after yesterday's post Kieran slept for 2 hours! I had to wake him because I didn't want him to wake up while I was trying to cook dinner. He then had another 1 hour nap and was his usual happy self. We had an "interesting" night last night though. He woke up a few times between 1am and 3am so I ended up just feeding him. He went back to sleep, but then woke again at 5:45am and wouldn't settle so I fed him again at 6:15am. I have a feeling he is in a bit of discomfort after the chiro session. He would have gone straight back to bed except that Joel started chanting "help mummy, help mummy" (as he does) as loud as he could. I couldn't go in to him because I was feeding Kieran and DH just lay in bed while I was getting all stressed out grrrrrrr! I blasted DH when he finally got up (after I'd seen to Joel and Kieran was now wide awake) and all he said was "why didn't you ask me to help?". WHAT????? Anyway, as you can tell I am really peeved at him right now lol!

    Anyway, I'll be back in for personals soon. I just needed to vent a little!

    greetings all

    wrapping - i wrap james with his arms out, so just underarms and below. he wears his big softies for those evil swatting hands. he's too much of a kicker to have regular bed sheets etc. my wraps came from a friends mum - they're huge and fantastic.

    feeds - he still feeds for 10 minutes because he's a piggie. in all reality i could take him off after 5 minutes but he squeals (like a piggie), then proceeds to throw up all the extra he took in.

    sleeps - he goes to 'big bed' around 7.30 or sometimes 8.30 and will wake for boob at 1am. then he sleeps till 5am. the fuggin birds and qld sunlight make him think it's party time so it would be a rare day that he goes back to sleep after that.

    i usually feed, change and plonk him on our bed with DH while i do stuff then put him back to bed at 6.30-7am.

    most days he'll do a 2-3 hour nap and a couple of shorties 45-60 minutes. depends on his mood. he's been trucking on through without his afternoon nap lately, which is pretty exhausting. it makes his afternoon stints about 4-5 hours long.

    when he was younger he'd sleep for 8 or 9 hours straight but he got over that pretty quickly.

    his longest time without boob would be from 6pm feed to 1am (7 hours), but the sleep is not usually more than 5 hours at a stretch, if that makes sense. i wonder whether he just needs to be soothed through the 1am thing because he chucksui'd it all back on me this morning and cried with a sore tummy. DH was impressed! normally james feeds while sleepy at 1am and passes out and i can pop him straight back down and he won't even flinch. oh well... keeps things colourful i suppose.

    Trish - we had a similar night. Have had a few lately and it's starting to wear me out. I was hoping it was a growth spurt but now I have no idea. I'm beginning to think this kid won't ever sleep for longer than 4 hours at a time (and he hasn't even done that the last few nights)!

    yeah I know what you guys mean. After bragging about my little ones long sleeps last night she was up at 1 and wouldnt settle until around 230 then up again at 430. I bought her back to bed with me and DH rolls over and asks what time is it. Then C kicked and grunted and got her arm out of her wrap and I got up to rewrap her and it was 515. Rewrapped her took her back to bed - started crying so I got up again. DH asks AGAIN what time is it - 530. He goes back to sleep for another hour. Then when he gets up he says...why didnt you wake me up? You need your sleep too! No ***** sherlock. I am sick with a cold - yesterday was my birthday....what a carppy day it was!! didnt get ANY presents! Mind you - I did tell DH that I would rather spend our money (what little we have after d/c bill!) on Caitlyn. So have noone to blame but myself. He did cook dinner. Mind you I still have all the dishes to wash!
    Oh....and if I didnt have something that i HAD to do at work today - I would be taking the day off sick. So I hope no one at work gives me grief today because after 2 nights of little sleep.....I tyhink I will let them have it!
    Anyway - hope you all have a good day!

    Trish - they just don't think sometimes do they? They don't even realise how frustrating they are

    Rebecca - you poor thing having to cook your own birthday dinner..... hope things cheer up for you today

    Hope those of you who had bad nights last night have better ones tonight!

    Put Tahlia down at about 11 last night, and she is still asleep! Just checked on her and she is starting to wriggle, so I better go and have my breaky before she wakes!

    Talk later!

    Blah - another crappy morning sleep. 40 mins and I couldn't resettle him.

    I swear some days I am just so over it....

    **ETA: not over being a mum or over my beautiful bub, just this sleeping crap.

    Hi all,
    Hope you are all having a great day.

    Rebecca - so sorry to hear that C is giving you a tough time at night. I know what you mean about having a good sleeper and then it changing. Sometimes I am so grateful that Ethan sleeps ok at night and then the next night he wakes up every hour. Don't know if this is what you want to do or not but here is what I do to encouage Ethan to sleep through the night. After reading "Save our sleep" I decided to give Ethan a dream feed at 10 o'clock. Instead of waking him up and changing his nappy I bottle feed him while he is mostly asleep. He goes to bed at 7.30 and then at 10 I leave him in his wrap and nappy, gently pick him up and pop the bottle straight in. He feeds for a little while and when he is done I place him on my shoulder and gently rub his back to let any wind out. Because he is mostly asleep he doesn't swallow much air. Then I put him back in bed. Most nights he doesn't evern open an eye. He then sleeps till 6am. Most nights he wakes up for the dummy between 4.30 and 5 but I just pop it in and goes straight back to sleep. I'm not trying to tell you what to do but it might help.

    Ok after my huge message I will go. Have a great day.

    Willow! Don't worry, I feel the same way a lot! Kieran only did 50 minutes this morning, but he tends to not sleep long for his first nap so I am getting used to it now. He has been asleep 1.5 hours and counting now, fingers crossed I get another hour out of him!

    Kellie - It's funny when they sleep for so long, you go in to check that they are still breathing! Then they stir because you check on them and then you get annoyed at yourself!

    Rebecca - Sorry you had a bad night too . At least you aren't alone! I can't believe your DH didn't buy you a present despite what you said! Guys are far to literal sometimes!! I hope your family send you some pressies.

    Kim - Thanks for thinking of me! I hope tonight is better. How are the gorgeous girls going?

    Viv - 7 hours between feeds is pretty impressive!

    Saffi - Good luck finding a new home! Do you want to live in the same area as you are now?

    Well, I reckon I know how Kieran injured his shoulder. After racking my brain I think it was from lifting him out of his bath seat. It is really awkward to lift the chubba out of it and I recall one time recently that he cried really hard after I lifted him out of it. Last night I put about an inch of water in our bath and just lay him in it rather than putting him in the seat. He LOVED it! He kicked and smiled non-stop so I think I'll just do that from now on. I still feel bad that I didn't realise I had hurt him . It's hard to lift a fat, wet, squirmy baby out of one of those seats!

    I really think the chiro has helped, K woke up after 40 minutes during his current nap and I was able to resettle him, he hasn't resettled for a week now so I am soooo relieved!

    Maddi also had a crappy night, wouldn't go down to till 11pm woke at 3am went back down 20mins later, then woke at 6am I had an 8:30 appointment so there was any point going back to sleep.
    I saw my specialist this morning, not really sure why my blood count dropped so low, just have to eat healthier, more iron enriched foods & keep taking my iron tablets.

    Morning all

    Didn't have a bad night as such but was up at 2am also. Just a dummy crisis and once popped back in he went back to sleep. Up at 5.30am, down again by 6.30 and then up at 8 when I loaded him into the car to take DH to work. Sorry to hear bubs out there and their mums had a rough night.

    It was raining hard here and the roads are a nightmare. After dropping DH at work L was really worked up and practically screaming. I couldn't face at least a 30 min trip home with him howling the whole time. So found a carpark, pulled out the boob and fed him. With him fed and asleep in the capsule the trip home was more bearable but still long.

    Trish - we would love to stay in the area. We have been here for 7 years and really love it. First we need to see what the agents come back with.
    Rebecca - hope you feel better soon. Meant to say yesterday your kittens are so cute. Can't believe they are all different colours.

    Off to have my hair done this afternoon. Haven't had it done since before L was born. Our good friend is babysitting. It will be the first time anyone other than DH or I have looked after him. She is then coming back on Friday night to babysit while we go out for my birthday dinner.

    Anyway, best be off. More later.

    Ahh Trish, bless you! You are so much like me it's unbelievable! I am so glad I found you here! On the bad days it makes me feel so much better knowing that I'm not the only one going through this!

    I think I'm a bit down in the dumps the last few days because DD is starting preschool. I think I underestimated the affect it would have on me. Just one more change, and I'm kinda sick of adjusting at this point! I'm a Taurus, I don't like change LOL.

    LOL Willow! It's nice to know we are not alone! I have to say I'm glad to have found you too! Has your DD already started preschool this week? If so, how did she go? We have Joel's first 3yo kinder session on Friday, but it's only for 1 hour and the parent's stay for that one while we learn the ropes. He starts officially on his own next Tuesday and I feel sick with worry! I'm not a Taurus, but I hate change lol!

    Saffi - Which day is your birthday? Is it tomorrow? Ooh, you're so lucky getting your hair done today, enjoy!
