    Well I;'ve tried Gemma twice now on regular milk and she has not even noticed the difference. Apart from the fact on normal milk shes hungry sooner, as formula fills her up.

    SO my question is when can I start to progressively change her over from formula to regular milk? Can I start now with just one bottle a day swapped? Or is it to soon?? I'm s tad clueless with this stuff, but I'm stoked that Gemma hasn't noticed the difference so thats why I'm thinking sooner rather than later!LOL!

    You could start mixinbg cows milk into your formula bottles like a a quarter cows milk then after a few dyas half etc, til it's fully cows milk.. bUt I guess the q is do you wnat her to be having cows milk in a bottle for however long or start using a cup?

    I have been busy at work & now just got home!!! Gotta rub tho coz I needa cuppa!

    Default I am introducing myself again!

    Hi everyone

    I hope you all dont mind me joining you at this late stage
    My name is Liz, and i first registered when i was pregnant but have just not made time to get back on this site again, which i should have done a long time ago!
    But anyway i am here now!
    I said in my original post that we were having a little girl called Gemma(what a great name kirsty!), which we did on the 19th Sept the day after one of my daughters turned 13!
    She was 9 pound 10oz and delivered by my 2 best friends (midwives) so that was pretty good for all of us.
    We have had a few ups and downs with her recently, in hospital with croup and then gastro twice in 2 weeks but things are slowly getting better and she is returning to her happy placid self.
    She is a big girl!! weighing about 8.3kg,her dad is very tall so she gets her size from him.
    Gemma is NOT even close to walking or pulling herself up, only commando crawls. But she has 2 brothers and 2 sisters to carry her everywhere (so who needs to walk!)


    I work at one of our local kindergartens, but have only gone back to work on a friday doing a 3 yr old group since having Gem. We also run our own business from home (Ash is an Electrician) so i do all the bookwork for that as well.

    That is enough about me, i look forward to getting to know you all and your bubs alot better.

    Kirsty, I agree with what Trace said. Sounds good to introduce it slowly, and now our bubbas are holding their bottles, you reckon they could master a cup??? We'll see!!

    Trace, Have a huge cuppa and put your feet up.... U poor darl..

    Well just having a ****e day already!! Have had to rush Gem to the doctor as her temp spiked to 38.6 and climbing. Looks like she has a slight infection probably in her sinuses, hence the green snot today. Shes asleep now but we spent all night up with her as we just could not settle her. Eventually the nurofen must have kicked in or exhaustion cause she fell asleep at 3am. Needless to say we are all a little worse for wear this morning especially Gemma. Poor little sausage.

    Kirsty, hope your Gem is feeling much better, nothing worse when they are sick! Gemma is just starting to get over her gastro in the last few days but is still abit grizzly, at least she is eating again.

    Tracey, glad you had a nice night away on your own together.... sounds good... i would love to have the chance to do that!

    need to go and cook some tea, bye for now

    Hey girls

    Yay Ellissa on Makon copying everyone. Gem's fav at the moment is blowing rasberries on EVERYTHING!!Cutie that she is!

    Well not much to report here. Gemma's front top teeth as through so shes in a fantastic mood. Shes walking everywhere!! She looks so funny though as her arms are stuck right out either in front or up high to balance herself. And she gets so excited that she tries to run!eeekkk! I'm so pleased that she is walking just wish it was AFTER I had this next bub!

    Hope everyone is well.....................Hey Alex I just read in the 5 things we don't know about you and I never knew you had a daughter!! She sounds like a complete cutie pie!

    i would have thought it would have been better that she is walking before #2 then you dont have to carry them both!? feel free to tell me off for that!i honestly wouldn't know whats better!

    Wow Aleks you have a little girl??
