    Help needed.
    tried Ashleigh with the bottle of expressed milk this evening, no luck, she ended up getting really upset so i put her on the boob for 10 mins then tried again. She just kept chewing on the teat. I squeezed some of it in and when she got the taste she opened her mouth to suck but when realized it was a bottle got annoyed. We spent 45 mins on and off bottle and on and off boob, only got about 10 mls into her from the bottle. Towards end she looked like she was willing to give it a try but kept gagging on the teat. I was using Avent but are there other brands out there with shorter teats? She may take to it better if she's not being gagged, otherwise I'm stuck with no life til god knows when.

    The closer to nature ones don't fit avent bottles... they are heaps bigger/wrong shape. If you have avent bottles you want to use, try the pigeon peristaltic ones... soft, stretchy teats - Xander takes only these ones!

    I have a nuk bottle for River which he drinks pretty well from, but have nothing to compare it to..I got that because he has nuk dummies and I didn't want to confuse the sucking experience too much Perhaps that's why he takes the bottle well, because it's like his dummies.

    Rach, maybe email Sherie with your front page details, might be easier than her trawling through all our posts? Dunno how these things work.

    Well, can't hear any noise right now, but about 5 mins ago, I heard River cooing from his room...honestly, if that boy doesn't sleep soon, he's going to fall into a coma or something! At least he's not screaming, quiet time I can handle
    I'd say from the lack of crying that that last feed was what he was after. I had a good nap on the couch anyway before while Rans played xbox, so I feel better. It's just so exhausting when they won't settle hey.
    And it's the weekend, so I'll only need to get out of bed if I need to pee! The rest of it Rans can do, or bring the boy to me in bed - hurrah!

    Rans just put River in his Baby BeeHinds nappy, because he's going longer between feeds overnight, he's soaking through the flannel flats, and I hate to think what would happen if he did a big poo! Although the cover would catch most, hopefully.
    How are you other cloth users going? Still going? Using disposables? Half half?

    Speaking of toilet related things... hopefully back tomorrow, may we all sleep superbly! xo

    ETA: Look at my beautiful man sleeping with his bum in the air He turns me to mush sometimes, he's just so cute.

    ETA again: Got a new photo album in my profile with well, pictures of River obviously!

    I love your new ticker pic Nelle!!! Oh.. and we are still using cloth full-time and all is going well. So much easier than I ever thought to be honest (oh, and I bought a heap of BumGenius' - LOVE THEM!!!)

    Oh ho ho those BumG's...so cool. Need to buy some more BBH's for night, what do you use for nights, or are the frequent feeds meaning you don't need something to go the distance so far?

    Getting changed into my pyjamas, I discovered I was leaking quite a bit, so I expressed a feed...so ladies, I am headed for a good sleep while Rans can do the feed! Although I don't feel tired now cos of my nap...but I probably am tired, since today was rather stressful with River's out-of-nowhere grizzlyness. So I might try to sleep

    I use cloth through the day and disposables of a night. Atleast I konw that buy using cloth, Vy's clothes will stay up (PMSL)
    Caddie - I hope you had a lovely evening last night. PMSL at 'jelly belly' comment. Mines become a keg again.....ah the joys.
    I was in big W and noticed that they sell the tommee tippee natural dummies now too. Ive gotta buy some cause Vy is always pulling her bloody dummy out.
    Best go and ,$hit, shower and shave while everyone is still asleep and before the NEEDLES this morning. Im so not looking forward to it.

    Nelle- Xander only wakes once during the night now (between 9pm and 4am) so definately need a decent nappy with all those wee's! I'm using either the hemp or bamboo BBH's.. the bamboo is a lot better at night. Will be starting to use the stash of wool soakers soon too.
    Hope you had a great sleep!

    Grrrr- my turn to get somewhat peeve'd. Last night, (like you Nelle!) I was really engorged so I expressed. Xander was asleep at the time, but he woke just as I was finished.... well, rather than DH offering to do the feed/nappy change and me head off to bed for an early one, DH just went to bed leaving me to bottle feed and settle Xander!!!! I'm also getting a tad bit annoyed that I pretty much always have to ask DH to take Xander for a cuddle, and then DH will only just get him and plonk him onto the couch next to him like he is a stuffed toy IFYWIM? I tell him Xander wont like just being ignored like that, then DH gets all "I dunno what to do, go back to Mummy" when he does cry.

    Maz - Best of luck with the needles today! Your getting two (kids) done aren't you?

    hey girls, just wanted to let you know I won't be on for a while. Nina is feeding every 3 hours during the night & every 2 hours during the day, so I'm stuffed. On top of that Heath isn't helping very much so I need to try & get on top of things with him & Nina.
    Luv u all & talk to you when I'm feeling less tired & cranky.
    Babies, be good to your mothers!

    Hooray! Ashleigh only woke once overnight. Couldn't believe ut. She finally settled at 10pm, after numerous times on the booby. She was driving me bonkers, she'd pull herself off and then start carrying on cause it wasn't in her mouth! Anyways she slept from 10 til 4am, never gone that long, then slept til 7:30. Yay!

    Nelle- you are so lucky having Dh bring bubs into you. My Df doesn't, he slept all night with his ear plugs in slept in til just now and then tonight is his "boys night". Be nice for me to have a night off or a good sleep in.

    Anna**- Some men are funny with babies they don't know what to do. Df is pretty good now he will chat to her and sing silly songs. Df used to suddenly find he needs to do something important when she starts carrying on so he can handball her over to me. I did pick up on it though and pointed that out to him so now when she cries he does try to settle her but looks sooo relieved if I take her.

    Jodi-Lee- I hope things settle down for you soon, is she getting enough at feeds? Hugs to you and I hope Heath gets off his butt and helps you out a bit more.

    im hearing you anna on the DH front, finally i have a day that he is home, all i want is to catch up on sleep, but there isnt even an offer to look after caityn so i can catch up on some...grrrrr......im lucky if he has a cuddle, then he complains, that she crys when he does....and of cause back to mummy.......grrrr....maybe caitlyn just thinks who the hell are you!!!

    got my periods back yesterday......well i think thats what it is.......so no more unprotected sex for me.......or maybe just no more sex, that might teach him to get his finger out and give me a hand!!!
