    Don't worry Catherine, DD wants to know why she gets dressed in blue and everyone on the street says "what a sweet little boy you have"

    I tell them she is a girl and i don't feel i need to impose gender specifica roles and colours on her at this age... that shuts em up pretty quickly... really its when we run out of the girl stuff and it seems so wasteful not to use the jumpsuits from DS when they are only in it for a few hours before they chuck on it again

    Maybe i should get her a headband.

    Hey everyone!

    I took Kieran to the paediatric chiro today and got him checked over. He has a curve in his sacrum (I think that's the bit he meant?!) which he was able to manipulate and his left shoulder is a little out, but he said the curve will be causing this. This will probably explain the colic/reflux. I have to take him back next week for more work, then in a month's time, but it is nothing major thank goodness. It cost a fortune for the first visit, but it will be worth it in the long term. They worked wonders on Joel when he was a bub.

    Nic - Wow, jetskiing already! Sounds like a lot of fun!

    Rebecca - Glad you had a better night with Caitlyn last night. Hope you have another good one tonight!

    Tiff - So sorry you had to give away your dog . We had to adopt a dog out a few years ago and it was very sad. We were all much happier in the end though and now that I have kids I'm glad we don't have both dogs as I don't think Joel would be able to play safely outside.

    Melbourne girls - I don't think we will come this time, sorry . I don't think I can manage with the two of them at that time of day (feed time and Joel's nap time) and that far away from home. I would love to meet you all at some stage!

    Hi to everyone else!

    Viv - in answer to your questions
    1) how do you dry whatever you've boiled sterilised? - we use a microwave steriliser, but I don't dry anything I sterilise otherwise it wouldn't continue to be sterile.
    2) do you sterilise them just before you give the bottle or do you store them? if so, where? - yes, things are kept sterile for 3 hours when kept in the container
    3) how do you warm the EBM if it's been in the fridge/freezer? - we have an Avent bottle/food warmer takes a few minutes to heat the bottles
    4) is it the same calculation for how much ebm they get as if you were doing formula? - whatever Cath says.

    Also, Viv, what room temp does JJ usually sleep in? We bought one of those Grobag egg thermometers and even with the aircon on and the room really cold it still says around 24 deg when the recommendation is 18 - 20. Great toy tho and can see how you could get addicted to taking the temp.

    Tiff - sorry to hear about your dog, but you are absolutely right to get rid of a dog that fights cause he could attack a child. Was worried how one of my dogs would react to L as he was my little baby, but so far seems to be really good. Tho would never leave the dogs alone with L.

    Brissy girls - outside Big W would be good as the Parents Room is close by. Excellent room BTW.

    L was weighed today. He has put on 430gr in the last fortnight. He is in the 25th percentile for weight and HC and the 50th for length. Still a small guy but getting bigger all the time. He might make 4kg by next Tuesday in time for our lunch.

    Hi to everyone. Hope you are all having a good day.

    i think it is rediculouse that people get offended if they call a girl a boy or vice versa, seriously, they all look a bit the same, how is anyone supposed to know. I don't mind if Lu gets called a boy!

    Q- Lu has been SUPER sleepy today. slept from 7am-10am Feed straight back to sleep. i woke her to feed her at 1pm (didn't eat much) straight back to sleep, i woke her again at 4pm to feed (full feed), awake 20min then back to sleep. Is sleeping on the floor at the moment......
    Have tried to wake her, but she just dozes back off....
    does this happen when they are growing or something? Nothing else has changed, no recent vax. Maybe its all the socialising....? Any ideas? Should i be concerned?

    I don't care if people call DD a boy.. and i understand if she is in blue that's what everyone thinks.. you can't tell the difference with a newborn anyway... Its more people's reaction when i say quite nicely she is a girl in her brothers hand-me-downs and they look at me like i'm abusing my child or something.

    Yael, Rochelle is pleading and begging me to send N some of her headbands! LOL. She has got enough headbands to headband every child in Africa!

    But seriously, Rochelle looks like such a boy with no dress or headband... It's such a waste NOT to use the stuff you have from your son because they just grow out of everything so quick! Rochelle doesn't really fit any of the orginal stuff we bought! Such a dam waste, she hardly got to wear any of it!

    I really only sterilise because of the thrush, no point in treating it if your going to keep reinfecting yaself.

    Ange, I wonder what the go with Lu is? maybe she is just going through a developmental stage?

    Trish - Glad you found that little problem and hopefully gives him some relief - I'm glad it wasn't anything worse but still sorry to hear!

    Ange Maddi will go through similar stages, sometimes i think she just catching up on lost sleep.

    Phil's uncle & he's g/f are expecting their baby girl this Friday & my sister just found out she's pregnant for the 5th time, so I'll pass some of Maddi's clothes on to them

    Cath where do you buy all your headbands from? I've only seen a Christmas one & i brought that for Maddi.

    mm..thrush is a good point.

    I ahd severe thrush with my son, was on diflucan tablets everyday for 3 weeks. I found taking probiotic powder (buy from health food store), helped also, and you can put it on your nipples and Rochelle can get some that way to help her also (as advised by pharmacist).

    Other than that, diflucan, thrush cream on nipples all the time, and daktarin gel in the mouth (DS loved the taste of the gel so much, you could barely get your finger out of his mouth).

    But it sucks having it... Watch out for vasospasm afterwards...very painful and you can get it as a secondary thing after thrush due to nipple trauma.

    Mo - We have the entire collection from DJ's - they are the best ones! When I first bought a couple from there when I was pregnant, they were so small they looked like a wrist band and I wondered how on earth I'd get it on the babies head! But they are the most adorable ones. And I also bought more than $100 worth from an ebay lady that lives near me on the Gold Coast who makes them as well as the little baby clips, which Ro still can't wear because she is almost bald on the top and it would look funny if I put clips in her grandpa hair at the back of her head. Theres also another ebay lady who makes them that I bought a few from. And then there is babyco - they have some too, but they aren't as nice as the others. I can PM you the ebay ladies details and you can have a looky!

    Yael, My dr won't give me the tabs because I am bf'ing? But I am taking the inner health plus and using nilstat and also daktarin gel as well as washing towels and bras in vinger in the rinse cycle. I've also been told to apply vinger to my nipples, but I don't have a chance to with the nistat and daktarin. I was going to see my Dr about probiotic powder, but it seems to be clearing - not in as much pain anymore. What's vasospasm? I keep getting pain in my breasts thinking I'm getting a reoccurence of mastitis... I know it's not but.

    I would check with a different doctor, or actually a pharmacist is better.. Both my GP and LC said it was fine to take diflucan whilst b/f

    There is a great person to speak to in Melb, i will track down his number.

    ETA: Rodney's number (Monash Medical centre drug information line is (03) 9594 2361.

    He would be the best person to ask.. otherwise try asking Barb Glare about it.. I just know that my thursh looked like it was clearing up for a while, put it just stayed there persistantly but not as full on for a while... Best to clear it up early.

    Vasospasm is similar to chillblains of the nipples, basically the blood vessles restrict, and when they reopen again, you get bad pain. It feels almost like burning hot skewers going up your boobs, but it was different to the thrush pain (hard to describe). Your nipples go white and normal colour again, normally in response to cold (like after your baby comes off the breast and the nipple is wet and exposed to air). Best thing is go keep your chest warm (warm showers and great, heat packs on your nipples). Need to take serious amounts of certain vitamins for medicine to get rid of it. Very painful and nasty.

    saffi - james' standard room temp is 24. anything less in queensland would constitute child abuse. rotfl. i put socks on him if it gets much below 24 in there. you wait till winter - if he had to hang out in 18-20 he'd just die. i can see why grobag would say that - their bags would be quite hot. jj just hangs out in nappy/singlet/muslin wrap then bunny rug folded in half when it drops much below 24. he loves it warm.

    yael - props to you for sticking it up the punters about gender roles. i can dig it.

    amelia - so i capitulated and ran out to the chemist last night to buy a couple of dummies. the middy had said big boys like ours with strong sucking reflexes would need them. james has a thing for sucking his fist through muslin, even if it is unsatisfactory to him compared to real boob. so i get home and he crashes out before i get a chance to try the dummy on him, and same this morning. i bought the pigeon ones.

    in other news - got home from shops to find DH giving jj his first bottle. awwww... soo cute (and shh, secretly i think they bonded over it but don't tell them). jj had no worries and pigged the lot. granted it was just a 100ml stop-gap feed till i got back (so he could pig more boob) but it worked.

    happy days.

    so for those who were bottling EBM - how much could you extract from yourselves on the average attempt?
