    Amber - my DD doesn't get locked in, was running late so was referring to a story in the news this week about a 1 year old who's mum turned up to her CCC 4 mins past closing time to find it dark, locked up and her baby no where in sight...she called the police and they found the baby inside strapped in to a bouncer sound asleep, luckily. All the staff had gone home and left her there.

    PS Weather in Sydney is CRAPOLA and expected to stay that way for some time...you missed the good weather by about a week!

    claire - i totally understand where you're coming from re: rubella. because i have natural immunity i never looked at it from that perspective. the dr sears alternative involves just spreading out your M M & R so they don't have it all at once. that is a decent alternative for me...

    must have freaked you out to be in that situation, since measles has been dead in the water for so long.

    Claire - talk about slooooow, I only just noticed you're a westie like me! Where abouts do you live? Understand if you don't want to say in order to protect your secret identity...

    Question.... For anyone out there with little boys who sleep on their tums....anyone found a nappy that allows them to sleep for many hours WITHOUT it leaking onto their clothes, and through their grobag?????? or do i need to make more of an effort to point peepee downwards!?

    Morning!

    Julia - Awww...love the new ticker pic! Your dog is huge! I don't have a tummy sleeper so I can't help, but have you tried putting pilchers over his nappy? That may help contain leaks.

    Amber - Have a great time in Sydney!

    Willow - That rubella scare would have been terrifying! I know what it's like to be scared of autism too, though it's not the vax that I worry will pass it on. We have a family history. Fortunately Joel doesn't have it, but I will be watching Kieran until I am confident he doesn't have it.

    Claire - Woohoo on a Brisbane holiday! I hope the weather behaves itself for you!

    Viv - I admire your thorough research into vaccinations! Thanks for sharing your info, it is something to really think about.

    Saffi - I hope you enjoyed your sickie! Have a great time in Byron Bay, I love it there! It's been about 10 years since I've been too.

    Mo - I'm glad your feeling OK despite your iron levels. That's great your blood count is OK, mine was always low so I suppose that's why I felt so [email protected] Lots of red meat for you!

    Have a great day everyone

    trish - i would call what i've done 'cursory' research. in truth, i'd like to go a lot deeper, but then time is against me (as usual). got to do something with all these legal research skills going to waste. research is like a rabbit hole though, and i don't get the luxury of going down that hole anymore. (if that makes me sick to call it a luxury, then so be it) :geek:

    you all have to watch the top 3 laughing babies video on youtube whenever you're sad. i watched it again today and god i laughed at those quads until i cried... so cute.

    sorry Julia, don't have a boy, so not much help, but you made me laugh!
    I have heard of people using 2 disposable nappies, or boosting the sposie with a bamboo/hemp/microfibe MCN (modern cloth nappy) booster.

    Mo - i meant to say, that liquid plant based iron is supposed to be good. A couple of middies and a doc recommended it to me when iron was low. From helth food stores, i think it is called 'floredex'. Not sure on spelling.

    Wish i was going to byron Saffi. No big plans. DH working i think. Oh a few people over for a bbq on monday.

    Been checking out Dr Sears, thanks Viv. I am pretty sure there is no mercury in any vaccs in Aus anymore. That's what i have read....

    Williow- big heads can just be genetic! Do you or DH have a big head?! My mum has a massive head

    The guni just fell off a box she climbed on to and has a nice big egg on her head. Shocker last night, my nips were hurting from too much feeding!

    Ange - How did you go with the u/s yesterday? Have you been given the all clear? Poor guni, sadly there will be more eggs to come...

    Viv - When do you reckon you'll get back into law? Are you still planning on moving to Melb?

    forgot to add:

    julia - the boy used to be hopeless overnight with leaking with all his moving about. i followed mo's suggestion (from her friend) and i use two nappies. usually i use a smaller-cut one inside (like huggies or other) and a big one (like a Mamia Large - Aldi) on the outside or i just use two the same depending on if i can be arsed going out to get more.

    with the inside one, i direct the tabs along the groin line, instead of straight across. with the outside one, i put the tabs firmly straight across the top like a belt. i find when he's on his tum (or crawling) it's more likely to leak out the top if full. HTH... worked for us.

    ange - man, how awful is egg central? i spend my days hovering trying to slow his fall. i don't stop him falling because i like him to know about gravity, i just try to save the noggin whack. he was playing with his stroller wheel the other day and cracked his head on the tiles so hard i felt sick. oh.. he even did the silent cry (worst!). thank dog for boobie though - can cure anything. what will i do when he's off the boob? which leads me to my next question:

    for the boob feeders - how long are you planning to stick at it? i'm thinking until he's allowed cow's milk (if he likes it).

    more questions:

    1) what do y'all do about feeding solids when out and about? j-bird is SUCH a spreader that i can't even imagine giving him solids when i'm out.

    2) does anyone have a jogger pram... or have they tried jogging w/ pram?

    on another note... seeing james in cords, and how soft and comfy they look, makes me really want to get a pair or two... god, what's happened to me. are cords illegal?

    kimb - i was thinking about what you said. don't sweat it, chief. really, each baby is such a wonderful, unique and totally precious little gift that i can't imagine ever fretting over who is doing what. like the others, my boy does some things and not others... like... doesn't have teeth or sleep through EVER!! it's nice to just crap on about what he does do on here... rest assured, there's no prize for first baby to leave home (i'll be the one sobbing!)

    i'm off to have my second coffee of the day... :evil:

    eta: trish - law is a ways off. i'll be at home with this pie for as long as i possibly can. yes, melbourne is still on. hoping for oct/nov.

    Julia - I've been experimenting with night nappies for months now. So far, no success. We even wet through a monster of a cloth night nappy which other babies have no probs with Current plan of action is boosted Bum G from bed time till 10pm feed, then I change him to an Aldi sposie. I HATE that I still have to use sposies and that I still have to change him overnight, but I just can't find anything else that works. L is a tummy/side sleeper too.

    Viv - I've actually seen some skinny leg cords around the traps lately that don't look at all illegal. Probably not the soft and comfy kind, but still cords.

    Ange - DH has a massive head and I've got a bigger than normal one too apparently. Our pead measured and charted both our heads - DH is literally off the charts and I'm right at the top for females. So more than likely genetic, but I still hate the extra worry. We're due for a noggin' check about now. Hoping it's still OK and don't have to call his paed again. At the moment, he's happy not to see him till 12 months, and I hope it stays that way.

    So we're up to night 3 of absolute horror - I have no idea what's wrong with him. He's never been like this before at night, not even when cutting his teeth. He has always fed and settled straight back to sleep without a peep. I was up with him for AN HOUR last night trying to settle him. So we're off the GP today to have him checked over, just want to rule out ear infections etc in light of his recent cold. DH and I have also decided to back off on the food - he vomited and gagged again last night at dinner time, so could just be an over full, uncomfy tum

    Trish- all good, breast lumps all normal, chest clear, bloods fine. thank goodness! Went shopping, DJ's have a sale on. spent too much but got a couple of bargains.

    Viv- Food when out...... Sometimes i give her a baby mum-mum cracker thing, or a bread crust and try and sneak a few mashed mouthfulls in when she's not looking. I have given her carrot and broc, which make minimal mess. I avoid zucc, pumpkin avacoda etc when out (unless mashed). Too messy... The other thing i do is get a bite sized piece of what i'm eating and put in her gob, less mess that way too! but she still feel like a big girl. Oh i have given her the rafferty's slop when out occasionally, it's the only mushy stuff she loves. dunno why, maybe the apple in it.

    As i was shoving boob in her mouth to stop the wail, i was wondering the same thing...... what do i do when she's not having boob?! My plan is roughly same as yours....... until 12 months, unless she self weans before then. nothing set in concrete, will see how she's going and how i am feeling.

    I 'think' about running and my boobs hurt! The best i do is a pram powerwalk. I really should get back into it though. I think if you are going to do it seriously, then those specialised jogger prams are the WTG. good suspension, big wheels and all that. My feet would hit my pram i think, not that i have tried.

    Willow- big heads are for big brains!

    Viv - I'm hoping to BF until K is 12 months all going well. K doesn't comfort suck so that's one thing I don't have to worry about I guess! When he's cracked it he doesn't want a bar of it.

    Ange - I'm glad your tests all came back good! Yay for some bargains! I forgot DJs is having a sale, we should go tomorrow. MIL works at the one at The Glen so we get an extra discount when she's working.

    Willow
    - DH has a massive head too! Like Ange, he says it's because he has a big brain!! Unfortunately he really is smart so I can't argue with him lol!

    Took L to the GP today but he couldn't find anything physically wrong (was mainly thinking his ears due to recent cold etc) so we're still at a loss. We are thinking though that we might be feeding him too much at night and this is upsetting his tummy. We discussed it with the GP and he said that if we are overfeeding him, it can cause reflux (he vomited again last night while eating his dinner). Anyone know if this is legit or not? I thought only milk caused reflux but maybe food on top of milk on top of food would do it too?? I guess food gives adults the same thing...

    So, current plan is to back off the food a bit, especially at night, and see how he goes.

    The GP gave him a thorough check up and was really happy with him, said his development is probably up there with a 9 month old (ahhh, proud mama!). He weighs nearly 10 kg!! Said it was OK to delay the vax a bit longer till I'm happy he's 100% well and if I want we can do them separately (but didn't sound enthused about it LOL).
