    Haley, I have seen the shaky leg a few times with Will. He hasn't done it for a while but it happened quite often when he was brand new.



    Well, W had his injections. It wasn't that bad for him, he only cried for a few seconds. It was rather traumatic for me, he was so happy smiling at the nurse and then he got jabbed. I felt really mean to take away his happy. I also had my pap smear. I wasn't expecting dinner and a movie, but a bit of lube might have been nice.

    Arte I told my OB he should have offered me an epidural before doing the pap smear lol.

    Fianne your DH sounds amazing.

    Queenie it sounds like you are doing a great job with S. I know its hard to feel confident that your doing the right things but try not to worry to much. I have found you get more confident as you go, having all the lovely girls in here really helps too.

    Noni. I try to just do the essiental (sp) cleaning each day and get the rest done when I can, usually on the weekend when DH spends some time with Logan.

    Better go and give Magoo a feed and hit the hay I am buggered today.

    Morning Ladies,

    Cleaning- Well my house sure dosent look like it did when there was just 2 of us.lol. I use to stess about all the toys everywhere and that the house looks messy but really when I took a breath and looked at it it really was not that bad. I do washing at night time and chuck everything in the dryer.(I wash everyday) On saturdays I get the boys to help tidy up there toys, vacum and mop when the boys are sleeping. The boys help vacum as well they love it. Now on mondays I also tidy up during the day. Lets just say by the time all the kids are in bed I am exhausted. May be one day I will get a cleaning lady in. The one job I hardley never have time for is folding the washing and putting it all away.

    Well O was a very good girl last night. Oh and yesterday my boys had there swimming lesson they have gone up into the next grade and swam with the instructor by themselves. Mummy was feeling a little sad as her babies are growing up to be big boys now. I bet I will cry when I send them off to school.. Oh I did cry the first day of daycare. lol.

    Have a good day everyone.

    Hey everyone.

    I have been about and keeping up, but didn't post

    All is well here, A is fine apart from his skin. The sudocrem is making a difference and keeping the skin a bit nicer. I have only been using it on his legs though and sorbolene everywhere else. Today when I go to town I am going to get a lactose free formula and see if that makes a difference - I would hate to think it could be as simple as changing formula and I didn't do it kwim? If his skin doesn't change then I know it's not an intolerance.

    The past few days though he is drinking a lot more milk at each feed now and going down about 7.30-8pm at night, but I wake him and give him a dream feed at about 9 to get him through to 6.30am. Not sure if it is making any difference to him sleeping till then though.

    Sherie - that is impressive sleeping. The dreamfeeds sound good, but if DD isn't fully awake she won't suck so I don't think I would have any luck there.

    Leanne - folding washing is a very boring job isn't it - and it never goes away. When mum was down recently DH took DD for a walk and I was cleaning the toilets, Mum offered to do it, but I said cleaning toilets was actually fun compared to folding the washing which she was doing so I didn't mind doing it!!

    She's awake - back later.

    Cally- Yep I would rather clean the toilets than fold and put away the washing. lol.
    Sherie- Xavier has slight excema(sorry for spelling) and I am using Dermaid 0.5% you can buy it over the counter at chemisits. I have also used it on jordy for a rash he had. Our pediatrician put me onto it. I must say that O have dry skin but at the moment I am using baby oil which seems to be working atm. I hope A skin gets better.

    Have a wonderful day

    hello everyone
    back from ww wednesday lol i wasnt going to go because of my shocking eating this week but it turns out i still lost .4.. it is getting frustrating only losing .something every week but this week i was just happy not to gain.. so now i am up to 1.3kg so yay for that lol... must remember to keep going for walks in the avo because it certainly wasnt the cheesecake or chocolate biscuits that made me lose weight lol...
    sleeping - well ash fed last night at 7:30 then again at 1am then dp topped her up at 2pm when he came home because Ash and i both fell asleep during the 1am and she slept through till 9... i worry shes not drinking enough because shes been a bit grumpy this morning but couldnt drink more than her biggest normal amount (160) because she gets refluxy was thinking abouty trying farrax in the mornings but i am not sure she is only 7wks and certainly not underweight i dnt want to end up with an overweight unhappy baby..
    with the cleaning i get up and put washing on, if its wednesday or i need to go to the shops i walk up to the shops.. come back hang washing out, then i cook lunch and clean up after it then theres the general cleaning and maybe more washing (the washing seems endless) in the avo we go for a walk and then theres dinner and those dishes, bottles and steralizing, finishing up any tidying that needs doing, getting bottles ready for overnight.... it feels endless lol but its all stuff that has to be done i suppose i will get used to it eventually and learn to fit in more time for Asha and then last of all a bit of time for myself lol...

    I think I am getting the flu. I had a sore throat last night and now my throat is on fire and my head hurts. I just feel blah. Logan was up twice last night and ended up sleeping with me which doesnt help. I am doing my best not to breath all over him and trying not to make him sick. Fingers crossed it doesnt last long, I hardly ever get sick.

    Have a good day everyone

    hello everyone. Quiet in here today - means I can keep up LOL.

    Katie, Fingers crossed it is just a head cold and it doesn't get worse for you.
    Agnes, You think time flies now, it wont be long and these kids will be at school LMAO
    Noni, A loss is still a loss, well done. I found the biggest adjustment was going from 0 to 1 child. All the others were easy as I already knew what the heck I was doing LOL.
    Leanne, I use the dermaid sometimes too. I got some aqueous cream today though so I will see how that goes first. I have a Dr's appointment for him next Wednesday.
    Cally, I don't mind cleaning the toilet either, I think it's because when you're done, it smells so nice and clean (for a little while anyway)

    OK, so I went to the chemist and got some aqueous cream to put in his bath and a tin of S-26LF (lactose free) formula. I am really hoping that this will resolve the issue. I have an appointment with a new GP who specialises in child health/ob/gyn so he will be able to action something for me.

    Katie - OooOO I hope you didnt catch it from me haha Okay bad joke! I hope you get over it reallt quick and your back to feeling yourself. Fingers crossed Logan doesnt catch anything. Like the ladies here told me, just wash your hands every time you pick him up.
    Nonie - Way to go on the weight loss!!! whoohoo Yuo are doing really well. And a small loss is better than nothing.
    Sherie - Mwahahaha found you on facebook ner ner :P) Im such a stalker haha. I hope Alister responds well to the lactose fee formula. Poor little darling. Is his skin making him upset??

    Sorry for the quick catch up.

    Things have been great here. I have just got over the flu although my sore throwt is still hanging around. I got my first pay yesterday and spent it all hahaha. Gawd I love having my own little spending money. For 2 days work it wasnt that bad at all! I bought $80 worth of bonds outfits haha (I LOVE bonds outfits!), a couple of tops for me and some Christmas decorations and gifts.

    Rory is still his charming self. He is such a chatter-box now I called Dwayne up the other day and put Rory on the phone and he was cooing and girgling away to him haha.

    Well better run. I need to hang out the washing and make dinner. My little darling is awake from his nap.

    Do I get Rory's needles through the CHN or the Drs??

    oh god Sorry Noni - A BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!!!!!!!! xoxoxox Hope you had a lovely day.

    Sherie - Wow Alisters sleeping is very impressive. I've been doing dream feeds as well at around 9/10 and it usually gets her through to 4/5. I'm happy with that. Hopefully the new formula works for you two.

    Renee - You arent the only stalker, I added you on my facebook too! I love bonds clothing as well, its cute. How are you going with work? Does Rory let you have a decent sleep through the night so that you arent a zombie at work? Did Rory end up getting sick from you?

    Katie - I'm sick too. Started with the sniffles and woke this morning with a sore throat. I'm so worried about passing it to Maddie, but i'm just washing my hands alot - they are so dry from all the washing!! Trying not to breathe on her either, but its hard, keep wanting to give her a kiss and then think no i cant! I dont get sick often either, but since Maddie has come along I've had two colds (the first was pretty mild) I put it down to not spending enough time on my own health. When I was pregnant I tried to be as healthy as poss, ate lotsa fruit/veges, took multi vitamins, drank loads of water...but now I hardly even have the time for my weetbix in the mornings!! Dont know if thats the same for you??

    Leemar - I too thought my life was hectic before a baby, how wrong was I! I'm flat out now.

    Noni - I know what you mean, everyone elses needs come before our own now. Its hard to find the time to clean, cook, look after baby and look after your own needs. As our babies get older, hopefully it will get easier? Oh gosh I feel like I am forever steralising and making up bottles too haha!

    Fianne - Wow your DH sounds great!

    Arte - I checked today with the doc about her shaky leg, and he confirmed it is just the nervous system still getting the hang of things, phew. Glad he got through his imunisations reasonably well. I think it is more traumatic for us mummies. I've booked ours for next wk, i think i'll have to work hard to stop myself from crying!

    Had our mothers group today, but I rang and said we wont be there due to me being sick. Wouldnt want to make any other mums and their bubs sick. Bit sad about missing out. And then next wk i'll have to leave the mothers group early, as i'm taking Maddie for an ultrasound. The Doc wants her hips checked out, they are a bit clicky. Hope its nothing serious!

    Work is great. Its great to only do one day. Although I have stuffed up a few times though. I forgot to put the alarm on the other day when I closed up the office OOPS! Rory is in a nice little routine now, he sleeps from 8:00/9:00pm through to 4:00/5:30am and then after his feed he goes back down to 8:00/8:30am. Nanna H had him the other day (for the 1st time) and she couldnt believe how settled he was, he didnt cry once. So I am very one relaxed mum....maybe a little too relaxed. I hope its not a bad thing haha.

    Oh thats excellent, he's a good boy! I guess you've got more important things on your mind, hence the small stuff ups! You probably forgot the alarm because you were thinking about getting home to Rory!

    hehe Renee, I don't mind you stalking me I have $50 in vouchers ($30 from my sister and $20 in MyerOne rewards) to spend at Myer and I am more than likely going to spend it all on Bonds stuff LOL - Myer has a great selection. I am also going to get some new Christmas decorations from there too, I love their Christmas cave. Plus I will take the kids to see santa there and scab another free teddy LMAO. For your sore throat, gargle some warm salty water to help kill the lurgies. Don't worry about being too relaxed, sometimes it's the best way to be

    Hayley, it does get easier as they get older. They become more predictable for a start. I have stopped sterilising bottles now, so that saves a bit of time. I hope the u/s shows nothing wrong with Maddie's hips.

    You guys will get sick of me procrastinating over this, but after a bit of searching on google, I finally found some good information about lactose intolerance in babies and as such have decided not to use the formula as it doesn't cause eczema, so I don't want to give it to him if he doesn't need it. However, it could come in handy if he ever gets a gastro bug as they can get temporary lactose intolerance from the gastro bugs in the gut. I bathed him in the aqueous cream (you lather them in it and then wash it off in the bath) and then rubbed some on him afterwards and it seems to be keeping his skin soft so far.

    I stopped sterilising for awhile there as well, and then a friend made me all paranoid about it. Also someone bought me an avent steriliser for my baby shower, so i figure I may as well use it.
    I hope theres nothing wrong with her hips too. I've had a look on the net and in some cases they have to wear a horribly uncomfortable looking brace. We'll have to wait and see.
    Poor Alister, at least it isnt lactose intolerance then.
    I'm rocking Maddie to sleep in her bassinet with one hand and typing with the other - still worried that i'm setting up a bad habit with this rocking. Should I be trying to let her go to sleep on her own?

    If you are happy to rock her, then rock her, but you could try and see if she will self settle by getting her comfortable (making sure she has no wind in her belly etc) and then just leaving her in a rocker chair if you have one or just in her bassinette and see if she will nod off. Quite often Alister will have little cat naps in his rocker through the day and I will put him on my bed or in his bed for a big sleep in the afternoon. I just lay him down, put his dummy in if he wants it and then walk out, sometimes he may grizzle (never cry) and I will put his dummy back in and settle him down again and then go out again. It will vary how long it takes for him to nod off depending on how tired he is. I find it is easier for him to go into a deep sleep now if I just leave him to it instead of rocking him.
