    Im about ready to give up with breastfeeding, Jett just doesnt seem to want to latch and suck enough for it to be worth my while. When he is in the mood we can get a good 20min feed but it often is accompanied by an hour of fussing and attaching/reattaching. He takes a bottle beautifully though.

    I just dont know what to do

    Awww Anna mate...they can be frustrating hey. River's a bit like that just with my right side...I can't see how it's different, but he just takes so much more effort to attach to that side.
    Is there a lactation specialist in your area you can see? Might make the world of difference to have some extra help, they might have a few tricks up their sleeve for you.

    Sigh...hope that's River fussing in his sleep...and double sigh...I need to pee...I will never again take easy, painless toileting for granted.
    Think I lost some more placenta earlier tonight...needless to say, I was a bit alarmed. Will tell the midwife tomorrow, I do remember hearing them say it was rather big, and it might be nothing but still worth a mention methinks.

    Sigh..don't think is is fussing in his sleep, better rush and sneak in a loo trip first.

    Anna** - your man sounds like a little piggy!! Our bubs are pretty much the same age, I do hope he starts settling down for at night.

    Shell - how did the water go? Hope it helped & you to some sleep

    Nelle - if only they did have their witching hour when it suited us ... I'm now prepared each afternoon for it. Just sit on the lounge and feed, cuddle, try & comfort, feed some more!

    AnnaT - breastfeeding is very hard in the beginning. When he's fussing, does he have wind, or maybe not very hungry. I find with Nina when she's sleepy she looks like she's hungry, but fusses heaps and I can't get her latched on properly. She'll eventually settle (sometimes after 2 or 3 hours) and go to sleep or feed properly

    Congrats Pip!!

    Well Nina is going longer stretches between feeds at night, last night it was 7.5 hours!! I had a great sleep in that period. I think she's graduallly going longer and longer, hoping she'll be one of those babies that sleeps through the night (fingers crossed!!!!) But one feed a night I can handle.

    Caddie - so happy Ruby is back home with you. R you still bb feeding or expressing?
    Shell - Im with Jodi try the boiled water. Its works wonders for me with Vy or try the old putting on tummy and rubbing back. I know when Vy brings her legs up she has atummy pain and usually needs a poo soon.
    Belle - my boobs are almost back to normal bar the ezcmer (spelling @hit) Im so happy that your weight is dropping off. I hope I can get down to double figures agin instead of triple.
    Little P - PMSL at disco comment. Diva hour is any hour Vy decides that she had enough. She changes them all the time.
    Congrats Pip cant wait to se eyou over here.
    About time you passed over to our side AnnaT. hehehehe
    Anna - woman dont be jealous, look at how gorgeous your little man is..oh I love little baby boys, I could just eat them up with cuddles. I looks like he's sort of smirking on his ticker.
    Nelle - how was the water birth? YOu always leave a smile on my dial after I read your posts. you crack me up. I haven't had a frosty since having Vyolett but in saying that now I might have to go buy some....
    Hello and how r you all Jodi, Rikky, Helen, Charli and Chrissy and ChrissyT?
    Another beautiful day here in Shepparton so Im going to paint a wooden bookselve/toybox white for Vy's room. She got that much stuff when she was born we dont know were to put it all..spoilt little so and so
    So im taking my jelly belly and we're off to the hardware while Jed and Vy are still asleep.
    Have a fabulous day girls

    AnnaT - Sometimes a babies tired signs are very similar to the 'I am hungry' ones....eg: rooting for boobie, grizzling etc. Are you waiting for Jett to cry or are you trying to attach him when he is only grizzling and grunting? I was confusing Paige's tired signs for hunger, and trying to feed her...this just meant she was always only feeding for a short time, not getting any hindmilk therefore being windy and grizzly, unsettled therefore grizzling more, unable to settle herself...and the cycle would continue. I gave her her first formula top up this morning, as I just needed to be able to see that she was getting enough...I also am needing to express about 20mls of boobiejuice before a feed so I know she is eventually getting to the hindmilk.

    ((((hugs)))

    Well ladies, Mummy Daddy and Paige survived (only just) their first mini family outing. We went to Hubby's 56 yo Aunty's wedding...lots of smoking and noise...so I hid in one of the bedrooms pretending to feed her...and only allowing close family to come in and cuddle. We only stayed around 1-2hours...but we did it!!

    Hope everyone is doing well!!

    p.s. as u can see, my personals are up to ****...LOL

    morning girls

    sorry i have been MIA for a while, have to catch up with all the news, i will attempt to read through all the personals today.

    we had to go away for a few days as craigs grandfather died 2 days after caitlyn was born, he had a fall on the exact time she was born and he never recovered. wow that was so stange.

    caitlyn is doing very well, still loving her boobies,and she doesnt like to sleep of a night time, only in my arms, but of a day she sleeps all day long.

    my kids love her and its a fight to see who is going to change her bum.

    ill try for personals soon, as this is taking me ages to type this since she is sucking on mums boobies.

    Thanks girls on your advice, i tried the water only got a couple tiny bits in. She refused to take it from the bottle so I had to squeeze the teat and squirt bit into her mouth. Each feed over night she has settled that bit easier and last feed we just had she settled straight away, maybe cause she had done a ginormous poo! Plus she had a bit of a vomit so maybe she feeling better.
    It just so frustrating not knowing. We all need that thing off that Simpsons episode where Homer's brother invents that device that interprets babies cries.

    chrissy- Sorry to hear bout your partners grandpa. Mine passed away few years ago after having a fall too. Was quite sad cause he was so independant still driving and all then had a fall and died 2 days later.

    Adele- good to hear riley is eating so well.

    ChrissyT- Congrats on surviving the party. The furthest i've ventured to outdoors so far is just to the lake nearby!

    maz- I've been trying her on her tummy too giving her back a rub, she doesn't like being on her tummy for too long but it does quieten her for a little while.

    jodi_lee- Wow, 7.5 hours! You lucky thing. I think the first time Ashleigh sleeps for a long period I will prolly be jumping out of bed checking she is alright!

    Nelle- Its the worst all that stuff just after labour. I don't know why God made it so hard for us, we go through the painful labour then instaed of getting a rest we are straight into sleepless nigts and on top of that all the post labour pains. I found those first few days the worst, heavy bleeding, uterus pain when BFing, sore boobs, painful stitches and on top of all that those bloody baby blues! Anyways I hope you start to feel better.

    AnnaT- Like already mentioed maybe give the BFing another chance by seeing a lactation consultant and if that still doesn't work don't feel bad about going onto bottle. You need to do what keeps you and jett happy.

    Hi Caddie, yeah it came back after I was chatting to you Love your photos of Ruby!!! so cute! you look so well too !

    Heres what Helen wrote to me before she had to go offline last week, she will be back online later this week...for those who missed the post...

    Well Eithan and I had our 6 week chk-ups today. Mine went all well. After talking to the ob we have decided that I will not be going onto metformin but after I finish breastfeeding, going back on the pill and a particular one called dianne. My scar is looking well, I just have to get some cream to put on it and keep a pad on it to keep it dry not moist to prevent infections.

    Eithan is doing ok. His weight is now 3.9kg undressed so that is good. She isnt too fussed about the reflux as he is putting on weight and he isnt vomiting blood. It's just one of those things that we have to work through. However his jaundice seems to be coming back. I think I let you know about all the troubles we had with him in hospital. Well now we have to go and get some blood tests done to check for his jaundice levels and to make sure that he doesnt have some sort of bad enzyme thingy or bad liver function. Also his kidney's could be at risk of getting affected aswell. So DH and I are pretty upset at the moment and I am so not looking forward to getting the blood test done, I know I am going to cry. I dont know what to do at the moment. DH and I are just trying to be optimistic at the moment.

    Owwww my butt! LOL, people are telling me I'll be able to sit comfortable after a week, well, I am counting the days!! I think today is the grazing healing...I almost do a handstand when I pee though, to stop stinging! Pretty funny.

    Maz, I think I agree about starting the day positive, I am making an effort to shower and dress well and pretty myself up a bit in the mornings, and then I sort of feel human again, iykwim.

    Hmm well I had missed about Helen and Eithan as well, sure hope that things end up alright with the little guy!

    Boobs are massive (well, for me anyway) and less sore now...but man oh man, I am dripping everywhere now! Trying to remember to drink enough as well, to stave off bladder infections! I am not the biggest fluid intaker, but I sure am trying!

    DH went out and bought me two crop tops, a bra and a top, as well as some baby clothes. He's such a sweetie. His latest trick is pretending to answer River like a phone when he screams, by lifting his ear to Riv's head and saying 'hello?' Makes me laugh. Til I realise that River's too psyched up to feed properly..

    I've seen at Target and other places that tops with a partial button up front are in this summer...my friend bought me one, and it's awesome for feeding, I just unbutton it (a bit fiddly) and it's enough to free up the boob! So Rans and I might do an outing with mum as moral support to the shops tomorrow to stock up on helpful clothes...

    Hi Mel, nice to meet you! I never said nice to meet you either Jodi

    Shell, so with you on the Simpsons machine! It's so time consuming trial and erroring every option when you're not sure what they want hey. I get upset when I've tried everything and he still cries...and when he cries for boob and then when I go to latch him on, he quickly shoves in his fist, or my knuckle little dummy.

    Hey AnnaT, just a thought which probably won't help at all, but I realised today that I need to be feeding Riv unwrapped, because wrapping makes him sleepy so he doesn't feed as well...so I guess keep observing for little dumb things like that too? Keep us posted on how it's going mate.

    Ruby's a cutie Caddie.

    Yeah Chrissy, Riv sleeps better at day too, but I'm hoping that will change now my milk's coming in? Someone give me some hope! (where is the emoticon of someone pulling their hair out?!)

    Big hello to everyone else, I might have a drink and toilet trip before...argh, DH is reading my post and correcting my english...sigh...'will that change now that my milk is coming in?' There. xo

    Sorry for butting in here Nelle, but with my second child, Erin, for the first three days until my milk came in, she would scream blue murder whenever she was awake and was never settled, but once it came in on day 4, I had a whole new baby! she was a lot more contented and sleep for longer periods too - even the midwives commented on how different she was (I was still in hospital). I am sure that River will be a lot more settled for you now your milk is in.

    Hey Belle – Thanks for the welcome… Kiara is going pretty damn well! She has been a bit chucky today but other than that all is well. She is spending her first night in her room tonight, we have had her in with us, but we don’t get any sleep as every little noise I wake too! Fingers crossed this arrangement works better! How’s Julia… she is just as much a sweetie as Kiara!!!

    Nelle – SALT BATHS… and URAL works magic! I couldn’t stand going to the toilet for the firsr few weeks, then my hospital put me onto Ural (you can get them from the chemist) you half fill a glass of water, put in the Ural, swish it around for a second, then skull… and the salt baths, just a handful of salt in about 4 inches of warm water and sit in it for 5 minutes… you wont know your self after that!
