    Morning everyone!

    Another early start for us today, K wouldn't sleep past 5:30am, yuck.

    Sherie - You don't need to apologise! I think we all understand . I hope your bub is on the other side of those teeth.

    Ange - Woohoo to Lu for popping out two teeth at once ! That will probably explain why she was so unwell, she was trying to be efficient! I hope the nights go back to normal for you soon.

    Amber - Wow, how exciting you were on TV! Myles' naming day sounds like it will be lovely.

    Mo - How's the new house? Are you all unpacked yet? How did Maddi go in the move?

    Viv - I forgot to comment about your eBay post yesterday. How bad are the new rules? It's meant to be for "buyer protection", but come on, who owns PayPal? I never accept PayPal with my listings because of the additional fees (I do use it through my website). Think I might move my business to another auction site...

    Hope you all have a great weekend (love this one!)

    I read back & can't really remember anything.

    Yay for all the babies getting their teeth, M is still toothless.
    WTG Lu crawling on all fours, WTG Myles for crawling as-well.
    Trish is K still sleeping well for you?

    Nothing new or exciting to post, Move went well apart from all the stuffing around.
    We have ADSL because cable doesn't run here, also had to change to Telstra because Optus doesn't service the area & we are getting Austar on Monday because Foxtel doesn't service the area.

    My Sister has been admitted to Hospital, her cervix is shortening & thinning out, she 2 & half cms dilated & getting some contractions which keep getting stronger.
    they're running lots of test's & monitoring her for now.
    She's only 30 weeks, So hoping my little nephew will stay in there a bit longer

    Sry for the Me post.

    ETA-Maddi went well considering, messed up her routine but she's made herself a new one, up at 5-30-6.30am bed at 8-10pm, 1 big nap 2hr nap & if I'm lucky two 20mins naps.I liked her old routine better *lol*
    Place is heaps bigger so all she does is roll every-where, Loves looking out the window at the Dogs.
    All unpacked, felt like it took forever, Never realized we had so much stuff & a lot of it was Junk.

    ange - with the brauer, i just gave him 1ml each time. i'm a believer in the barest minimum to get by. it is supposed to be 1ml half-hourly for two hours the first time you use it - or if you have a break. i haven't done that many doses before. i've done a 4.30 and 6.30 at best. i think it goes up to the bigger dose for 6mo.

    i only use it for this pre-erupting phase, just to help calm him. if he's in real pain and very unhappy i go for the baby panadol (but not together). the other night when he was whimpering for ages and couldn't get to sleep, i went the old bonjela, baby pan and boob. worked a treat.

    can't believe the guni girl has popped two fangs! *bite*

    Howdy

    Better night had by all. L woke up at around 9.30pm so kept him up until 11.30pm. He needed a quick dummy check at about 2 which DH did on the way back from the loo and then I fed him at 4. Brought him in with us at about 6 and we all snoozed until 7.30. DH then took him and I slept until just before 10. So feeling pretty good about things.

    Guess who has a second tooth! This one is right next to the other one. The pooey nappies have decreased in number as has the drool. Hopefully that will be it for the time being. TG I'm not BF anymore as he is chomping on my finger a bit and it hurts!

    Amber - hope you have a good day tomorrow. Look forward to seeing the photos.
    Mo - ah the joys of moving. Hope your sister stays pg for a bit longer.

    Not much else happening. L is down for a sleep so might go off and have a shower.

    way to go L the fangster. ol' gums mcgee round here has stopped his 'signs' (bar the drool) and we have no teeth still.

    my friend has an 8mo who's been showing the signs for months but is still lord gummington himself.

    i dream of a day when james will sleep peacefully with us. no way, jose. he thinks it's rockin' party time when he hits our bed.

    we tried 2t of potato with EBM today. oh my lord, what a show. you remember that scene in dumb & dumber when jim carrey is so upset he retches? that was the boy today. he held the potato in his mouth, gagged, retched, screwd up his face and cried. we tried again but it was the worst outright rejection so far. i honestly thought he'd love food. sigh. he even puts on a bit of a performance for the first mouthful of rice cereal.

    pears were a farce. he only likes sucking at it through the mesh. to blazes with puree, he says!

    what can we do? will i be BF the boy till he's 25????

    Morning everyone, these early starts are killing me! K won't sleep past 6am atm. We had a pretty good night though, he slept from 8pm until 4am, had a feed and slept until 6am.

    I took K to our MCHN on Friday to get checked out. He has been pretty miserable and I just don't know what's wrong with him. He's been pretty unhappy for at least 6 weeks now and I've been going nuts. He constantly rubs his right ear and cries and he is really grizzly and clingy. I am struggling to get anything done around the house and only cooked dinner once this week because I am either too exhausted by that time of day or K won't let me put him down. I have taken him to the GP to look in his ear and also one of the chiros had a look (he is a specialist in ear infections) and no one found anything wrong. I've called the MCHN line and was told if he didn't have a high temperature he won't have an infection.

    Our MCHN weighed him yesterday and he is still gaining lots of weight, she checked in his mouth and said there is some swelling in his gums, but no teeth are about to appear (she said that at his 4 month check too). She said to take him back to the GP so we took him again yesterday and this GP said he has a fungal infection in his ear. How come no one else saw this??? She prescribed some ear drops and hopefully it will clear up within a week. I am so frustrated that this wasn't picked up earlier! I don't know if this is the reason why he has been so unhappy, but hopefully we will find out soon.

    Sorry for the long boring post!

    Viv - K hated potato too, but he liked sweet potato and pumpkin. Don't worry, James is a boy, he will develop a love for food sooner or later!

    Saffi - Woohoo for L's second tooth!

    Mo - How scary for your sister! How is she going?

    oh trish, what a fiasco. it's so hard sometimes to unravel these illnesses. hope he's on the mend.

    i think we're trying sweet potato round here today. he had a spoon or two a month ago but his reflux was so bad back then i just ended up stained orange with sweet potato vom. smooth. so i suppose we'll try again now.

    Happy 6 months to Max

    Trish - how frustrating. Hopefully now he will be on the mend.
    Viv - GL with the sweet potato.

    DH is adamant that we will introduce solids to L no earlier than 6 months. So only 2 weeks until that point.

    Went shoe shopping for L yesterday. Little disappointed in the range for boys when compared to girls. DH wanted some Julius Marlow prewalkers - but they don't make them LOL. They do however come in larger sizes so he will get some and look like his Dad.

    Trish can't believe no one picked that up, Hopefully he'll start to feel better soon & go back to being a happy baby for you.

    Viv good luck with the sweet tottie, That is one of M's fav foods.

    My sister is still in hospital, things have calmed downed she has another ultrasound on Monday to see how things are going, My little Nephew is doing well tho kicking up a storm.
    They think she has an infection which is causing all the problems.
    Thanks for asking

    Sorry I have been absent, things are mental around here.

    Well Amara is 6 months I can't believe it.
    Off to the MCHN tomorrow for th eobligatory check up.
    Needles on Tuesday, my poor bubba.
    Still one toothy peg.
    She ate about 2 tsp of rice with pureed apple tonight. Has not affected the overnight feeding one iota, still a feed around 11pm and then anytime from 3-4am...."sigh"

    I read that silly Robyn Barker womans book today when I got it out for Viv, she says that hunger is not a reason for night waking beyond 6 months......said expletive closed book LOL. (Oh and apparently teething has no effect on anything) I will PM you Viv, promise! When we get back from holidays on Vic I will send it!

    Must go to bed,
    Night all.

    trish - don't worry about it. i'm glad you closed it, i hope you said 'pffft', too.

    so the sweet potato was a moderate success compared to the regular potato. he still held it in his mouth, grimaced and performed. this time he didn't cry. i managed to get 1t to go in and he wore 1t. then over the next 24 hours it has slowly been refluxing out. this morning he's down to yellow vom. sigh sigh sigh.

    i'm compiling a list for the doc on monday when i go to get the little dude's needles.

    last night was the classic 3-hourly feeding night. eyes on stalks. he also woke in between times for a little cry.

    will be nice when the teething thing stops.

    i'm going to have to ditch the change table now. it's not something that will be fixed by a strap. he rolls with all his strength and twists backwards like a banana. he wants to touch the bucket, the pockets on the change table, empty the cotton buds etc. yesterday he rolled and leaned over so hard he whacked his head on the shower screen wall. next change... same thing. *eyeroll* no tears the second time but still.

    so i've taken to changing him on the ground. how do you control a wiggly worm? it's like a competition to get the nappy on straight. at the moment, giving him the bath thermometer (shaped like a submarine) seems to work to keep him distracted but otherwise... sheesh.

    he is such an active 'little boy'. he spent 10 minutes yesterday morning trying to pull off the power point covers again. why are power points magnets for the Y chromosome?

    my little monkey is so cute though.

    viv- sorry you had a crap night, i do find it somewhat comforting to know someone else was up as much as me though. J's reflux is really a PITA huh? can't believe he is still chucking yellow 24hrs later. When is that spinkter supposed to be working properly?

    Leah- where you heading on hols? Robin barker is full of BULLCARP, teething effects nothing my butt! She should live here for a week.

    Trish- poor little man, hope he is one the mend. Just shows how good your mothers instinct is.

    Mo- How's your sister today?

    going to have a skinny, decaf, fair trade organic coffee........... now how can that be bad for me?

    nothing cooler than ordering a decaf, soy mocha - except i had to stop because the soy apparently gives baby boys man boobs and other estrogen problems. lucky i only had 2 or 3 because i actually despise soy with a passion *gag*

    mo - is maddie still sleeping through like a champ? it's nice to hear someone is getting sleep

    what about the other formula babies? are you all sleeping?

    Morning!

    Viv - we aren't sleeping through yet here either. 'Tho last night he did 8pm to 3.50am. He hardly slept at all during the day yesterday so really made up for it in a big way. Really hoping that solids will help his sleeping. As I said before DH is adament that L will not have solids any earlier than 6 months, so at least another 2 weeks of interupted sleep for me.

    Leah - KWYM about Robin Barker. All I know is that L's pattern for everything changed completely when he was teething and now that it is over for the time being he is back to his old self.

    Now that I am on the count down to going back to work, am going to try to get the house in order. Firstly, I'm going to defrost my freezer! Realised that it has been 6 months since I did it last (which was in the time just before L was born). My how time flies. Anyone else would think that I would have had ample time to do it.

    Anyway, there are clothes that need hanging out. BBL
