    Sherie, thanks so much for that. You could be right about the gold formula, surely there must be plenty of other people on the 'normal' formula's otherwise they wouldnt be on the supermarket shelves. I've seen a Heinz formula which is like $10.00, so much cheaper than the gold!!

    Hayley - Thanks for the coloxyl tips. I went out and got some from the chemist, planning on using it during her next feed. I'm hoping you are right about her just being blocked up a bit, because she has been on S26 gold from about 2 wks of age and its only been the past wk that I've noticed her bowel motions have been different.

    No worries, I know it was horrible when Scarlet was constipated & I felt like there was nothing i could do for her pain. The drops took 2-3 days to work and i kept giving them to her for 2 days after she started having normal BM's just to make sure.
    Poor Maddie, Goodluck with it.

    But you then switched Scarlet to the karicare didnt you? Is that because the S26 started to block her up again? Should I just keep doing the drops for a few days until she clears up and then see how she goes? I know you cant go on forever with the drops, dont want her to need medication to go to the toilet iykwim.

    Asha had her needles today gosh how awful i almost cried!!! shes a bit unsettled now but not too bad... i had no idea they gave an oral thing for gastro now?? oh well probably a good idea...
    went to vote.. what a pain in the bum!!! oh well... i'll just say only a male would think his g/f could eat kfc on weight watchers lol sometimes i just dnt know what he is thinking!!
    cute pic with santa haley!!! we use nan gold and its been really good for ash the only one she hasnt projectile vomited and seems to give her the least trouble with reflux.. no constipation either and this is the longest shes been on one formula!! i only pay $17 for it in the chemist shop around because in the supermarket its $25 can u believe that difference???

    Renee, Lindsay is good thanks. He's still not eating as much as he normally does but he looks like he is putting some weight on.

    Hayley, I hope the drops work for Maddy.

    Noni, the Rotarix is only new on the schedule in the last few months I think. You could pay to have it before that though when it first came out. The amount of extra ones that Alister will have compared to what was on the schedule with the other three is amazing.

    Hayley ~ I changed Scarlet to goats milk because the drops worked and then within a week the S-26 constipated her again... She was doing really well on goats milk but i just changed her to the normal karicare recently because i didn't think she was thriving enough on the goats milk.

    Noni ~ Boys are stupid aren't they.. altho.. I'm eating KFC right now... YumMm *lol*

    I finally got my pics on the puter so i'm going to post a few of scarlet

    hey all...
    heard some more awful news last night... a family friend lost their little girl.. she was a few weeks old and born with a cleff palate and couldnt breath.. not sure what actually happened in the end becaause there were numerous health problems poor things!!!
    Asha had her first projectile spew on this formula last night hope its a reaction to her needles not a sign of things to come.. shes had her morning feed and is a bit refluxy but shes falling asleep in her bouncer as i type so fingers crossed it was just a once off...
    feeling very tired today we even slept in to 11:40 when Ash usually gets up at 10:30 hardly ate anything yesterday either think its from the vaccine yesterday, they usually make me feel a bit funny... even now my thoghts arent coming together properly iykwim? better do some excersise today there are mint slice biscuits in my fridge that i am having a lot of trouble resisting lol...
    rennee - i am sure they will be back soon!!
    lp - yeah he was like what do u want for lunch and it was kinda my fault because i said i wasnt really sure but when he pulled into kfc he was surprised when i said there was nothing on the menu that would fit into my diet lol...
    sherie - do u think they are over doing it with the immunisations? always adding extra ones or do you think it really is just medical advancement?

    Renee, Pregpan was online this morning, but just didn't post in here.

    Noni, I think Asha might just be a bit low from the vaccinations. It sure does take a lot out of them and it is a lot for their little bodies to handle at once. Also my deepest sympathies to your friends too, I can't imagine the pain they would be in right now.

    Personally, I think that there are too many extra ones added now to what there was when Lindsay was a baby. There was no meningococcal, pneumococcal, rotavirus, varilrix (chicken pox) vaccines back then. The varilrix did come out by the time Lindsay was old enough to have it at 18mths and you had to pay $60 for it. That is the only extra one I got for them as chicken pox can be a devastating illness in kids. So I paid for he and Erin to have it and by the time Paige was old enough it was on the schedule by then.

    Alister is good today - still doing some wicked poos but is back to his old self again otherwise. Since using the cortisone cream on him his skin looks amazing! Still a bit dry but I put sorbolene on him inbetween his cortisone doses.

    Sherie - glad that Alister's skin is looking so much better and that he is recovered from his injections. Ours are in the morning.

    Just had to persuade MIL that she doesn't need to go out and buy DD winter clothes - it is summer now!! She has growsuits that she still fits into for the cool days, just nothing pretty.

    Finally finished our thank you cards today!! So pleased they are out of the way.

    Hope everyone had a good weekend - we had a picnic yesterday and went for a lovely walk this morning. And I managed a nap each day - DD is having less sleepy time so it was good to have DH keeping her entertained while I caught up a bit.

    Noni - I know you really have to shop around for the cheapest price when it comes to formula. Coles had the S26 gold on sale a few wks back for $15.00 but you could only buy 3 at a time. DP and I each got three and then we had our mums in on it as well! So sorry to hear about your friends, very very sad.

    Hayley - Scarlet is a little cutie! Did DP do the feeds this w/end as promised? Or was that last w/end??

    Sherie - Glad Alisters skin is slowly getting better.

    Cally - I just got rid of a stack of winter clothes. I left the lighter grow suits in the drawers as well for the cooler nights.

    I used the drops yesterday and Maddie did a couple of massive poos (sorry if tmi). So I didnt put them into her milk today. I will see how she goes over the next few days.

    Is everyone pleased with how the election turned out? Personally I voted Liberal, nevermind, they all seem to be full of it if you ask me.

    Well I've had two babies in the house today!! DP and I had our first night out together last night & left Maddie with the MIL. DP drank wayyyy to much and was quite hungover & feeling sorry for himself this morning!

    Hope everyone had a nice w/end.

    Noni - Sorry to hear little Asha isnt herself after the needles. I hope she comes good soon. Sorry I havent seen the jumperoo. We are going to toy 'r' us tomorrow so ill keep my eye out! Im so sorry to hear about your friend. I hope they have alot of support to get them through.

    Hayley - I got escorted to the local school by my friend to make sure I voted haha.

    Sherie - Glad Alisters skin is getting better. I cant keep up with all the vaccinations

    Had a lovely day today. Went out for breakfast, went and saw Dwayne's dad and then my parents & brother later in the arvo. We just had a few drinks with some friends out the front on the lawn.

    I fainted last night! I felt dizzy so I got up out of bed to get some water when I got to the hallway I hit the deck hard! I hit my head hard on the tiles too, ouch! I was only out for a few seconds though. I have never fainted in my life, it was the strangest thing!

    Noni - From what the other ladies have been saying Asha's behaviour is pretty normal after the injections. I'll be going through the same as you in a couple of days time. Did you give Asha panadol before the injections? I was thinking I'd better go get some tomorrow. I've seen the FP jumperoo, it looks really good. Lucky Asha, what a nice pressie!

    Renee - Is there a Toys r us open tomorrow in Perth? I must go!!! Hehe. I wonder why you fainted? I havent fainted in yrs, its quite scary though.

    I'm so excited, I'm enrolling myself for uni online atm (between ad breaks, as DP is helping me but he is addicted to CSI!) & I'm choosing which units I want to do first.

    I so need an early night tonight, had a late one last night, luckily Maddie slept through till 6am. Hope everyone else has a nice nights sleep tonight.

    Hi Everyone ~ Had a pretty quiet weekend, Acidentally found out what DF is getting me for my birthday, A complete make-over with a day at a really nice spa - hair, nails, facial, body wraps, spray tan - heaps of other stuff - I guess he got sick of me whinging that i'm all frumpy now *lol* It includes hair extensions as well.. never had hair extensions before, not sure i want them either... Anyone ever had them done? We must be doing something special aftewards too because all my friends are being wierd whenever i talk about going out for my birthday.
    I'm glad i found out, I was going to book myself in to get my hair done this week.

    I went on a major shopping binge on Sunday - I bought almost every toy in the baby section at BigW... I'm so glad toys r us wasn't open!

    Our xmas tree is hideous lol MIL bought it for us and i opened it last night because we were going to put it up but it's so ugly - We decided we're going to buy another one and she wont notice because she didn't open the box - Shhh.

    Cally ~ I'm having the same problems convincing MIL that Scarlet doesn't need a massive wardrobe of winter clothes just yet! If the rate which she is growing now is anything to go by who knows how big she'll be by next winter + We live in QLD!

    Hayley ~ Lucky you having a night out! - I asked my mum to babysit on Friday night but my brother beat me to it and she already had 4 of his girls to look after lol, I'm glad the drops are working.
    DF Didn't do the feeds and let me sleep in as promised, He had a pretty tough week at work and ended up falling asleep at 6pm.

    Noni ~ This might sound stupid but are we supposed to be giving our bubs water because they're FF? I saw someone say we are ages ago and i forgot to ask... I only give Scarlet water if it's a really hot day and she's thirsty when she shouldn't be.

    We were looking at the jumperoo's yesterday noni and i think it said 3mnths - Or that could have just been the jolly jumpers.

    Scarlet has been getting these super hiccups lately, she hates them... poor chicken, she tries to sleep through them but her eyes almost pop out of her head every 5 seconds. Going to go give her a cuddle til they go away so she can have her morning nap.

    Hayley xx
