    hi all
    another great time at yummy mummies today and we went for coffee after too which was fun (and i found another fab cafe near me). Noah has had 2 cot sleeps today - so i am a happy camper!
    What i am unhappy about is my body... i REALLY have to get it back into shape. curb the eating... it is TIME!!! i think i will do it my way for the rest of this yr, more discipline w exercise etc and then go to WW if i need to at the start of next year.
    Re nappy bags - i have an oi oi one, and i like it but man i am sick of carrying the SAME bag everywhere!! plus everyone seems to have the same one! i am on the hunt for a new bag! already LOL! i am the same an noni and renee though - bag is always packed with SO much stuff in it, i am envious of those who can travel light.
    LP i hope you are feeling better today hon - we all have those days...

    ETA - thanks for all the lovely comments on Noah - I also think he is rather a spunk but hey I am biased!! Gracie - i think it was you who asked - he was born with dark dark dark blue eyes, but they turned dark brown at abt 4 weeks....

    Hi everyone
    Thanks for the :hugs: 's ~ I finally got her to sleep for a few hours last night... in bed with us, She was acting like she was possessed, throwing her head from side to side and waving her arms around like a mental patient.. I had to hold her hands together to stop her from punching herself in the face... She is asleep again now, I know it's early but I DONT CARE, BUH-BYE ROUTINE! today has been a nightmare all over again - I think she has ADHD!!!!!!.. Tummy time consisted of her pushing off from the floor with her feet so hard that she catapulted from the pillow i was propping her up on and face planted it on the carpet - I had her on her playmat and when i came back from the kitchen she had a mouth full of furry stuff from trying to eat her teddy bear - She's been screaming all day, not upset screaming but screaming, laughing and like yelling REALLY loudly... yeah it was cute for the first few hours but i started to wonder when child services would show up. Is that normal?.. Should she be so vocal this early?

    I've been way calmer and happier today but still completely exhausted, It's hard to keep up... She's just started a whole new bracket of 'first things to do' so quickly and these ones aren't as tame as the other 'firsts'.

    Still no personals, I'm going to go back and have a read through

    ETA
    MILESTONES!!! - thats the word i was looking for 'first things to do'...lol my brain is mushy.

    MD ~ I'm glad E is getting better.

    Noni ~ Gratz on your weight loss, by the way it says on the jumperoo box 'only use on children who are able to hold thier head up un-asissted'... I use baby powder on scarlet after her bath, It makes her smell pretty!

    Hayley ~ I have a Med to Large nappy bag that i take everywhere but it's only ever half full, If you get one you should get a small one cause you've already got packing light for her mastered!... I DO NOT KNOW how you manage to take her stuff in your handbag, I find it so difficult to even find my own stuff in my handbag now.

    renee ~ Thanks for the tip on the advent formula thingers, I have been just taking an airtight container of formula and a scoop but bottles of measured water out.

    Art ~ WOW swimming lessons, that's an awesome idea!.. Hadn't even thought of doing that yet, Sorry about your photo drama's, I hope you get a good one.

    Hayley - Oh no you poor thing, hope Scarlet has calmed down a bit for you now. Definately get one of the avent formula holder thingys, I think mine was about $7.50 from coles, they are very handy. I was doing the same as you until I discovered it. I dont manage with putting it all in my handbag, i'm always fumbling around looking for keys, phone, dummy etc ohhh its a nightmare.

    Bekz - Not long to go now, bet you cant wait to get bub out!! You look like you are about to pop. Good luck for the birth, i'm sure you will breeze through it having been there before.

    Just bought an oioi change mat on ebay for $15.00. Its really really nice, but I think I may have paid too much?? Wouldnt have a clue how much they usually retail for. Been meaning to get a change mat for out and about, been using a cloth nappy.

    MD's tip for travelling light - put ONE of each thing (except nappies of which you will have precisely TWO) in your (small) nappy bag and then have an emergency bag/box of extras which you keep in the boot or under a seat in your car. That way in an emergency you've always got a fall-back position (handy when your bub has just pooed thru their second set of clothes or the weather changes suddenly) and it's never further away than your car. Also handy later on when they start on solids and you stay out longer than expected if you have a jar of food and a spoon in the car too.

    Second nappy bag tip - always put things in EXACTLY the same place, you'll learn to reach in and get the thing you want first go without any rummaging.

    Noni, E only just started swiping for things in the last ten days, we had a really unsettled few days then all of a sudden, swiping. Ash is only little still, she'll surprise you with a new trick pretty soon, I'm guessing.

    Arte, pity you're in a different state, or I'd send my DH around - he's specialised with technical photos of small things in strange angles LOL (usually airplane components but not too different I think LOL).

    Pregpan, another good cafe?? Please share! BTW say hello for me to all the ageing rockers at EJ's concert haha. I'm sure it will be awesome, enjoy.

    Bekz! Good luck & every blessing in your birthing time hun! I'm looking forwards to reading your announcement, any day now!

    LP, please consider using only a cornflour based powder and not talcum powder (if you're not already) as talcum powder can be carcinogenic, especially in girls where it can find it's way inside of the body. There are some threads about it somewhere in BB...BTW sounds like you've got a little live-wire there - just wait until she starts crawling!

    Sherie, wondered where you'd got to...glad to hear A's skin is on the improve! Did you get a lot of rain this week? Tanks still full?

    Good news, turns out DH can come home for the weekend! Phew, Miss E has an internal sensor for when he's not here and gets up umpteen more times a night...definitely does not enjoy the hot weather! Did I tell you friends gave us their portable aircon for our bedroom...haven't had a chance to use it yet, it's been cool since then LOL always the way...

    BTW - I missed out on the FP thing at Target but they had 30% off all nursery toys there today... included a lot of the FP things (like the music thing with the remote control for the car) and also the Lamaze toys & books (Fianne thought of you) which I'm loving at the moment and "whoops" accidently bought a few more. Also had an excellent haul at the op shop this morning, osh kosh shirt, and some brand new board books (50c each - LOVE IT) - as well as some cool toys including one of those old windup tvs that plays a tune while the picture winds past continuously, E just loves it! Until H clobbered her on the head with it, that is!

    Morning ladies
    Scarlet seems alot calmer today, still insanely vocal but not acting like a fruit loop lol

    Does anyone know where they sell little xmas outfits for bubs?.. i.e; santa hats..

    Hey MD, Thanks for the nappy bag tips - as for the baby powder i've been using the J&J one... I just rub some on my hands and put it under her arms and around her neck when she's finsihed her bath, I've only recently started doing it but i definately wont anymore!... I feel bad for doing it now, Why do they sell things made for babies if they're harmful? ARGH!

    Wow renee ~ You were up late last night, Missing Dewayne? gets a bit lonely when they're on nights hey.. Has Rory's routine changed because of it?

    LP, don't feel bad, I don't honestly know why they even still sell it. J&J do have a cornflour baby powder too, it smells the same and works better than talc anyway IMO, so maybe try that?

    Renee, yep, very busy, here there and everywhere, it's only going to get busier in Dec, too!

    Ok, gotta go, I'm off to do some important Santa trampoline business.

    K had her first night in the cot last night. Woke a bit earlier than normal, but she had a very dirty nappy (we could hear it through the monitor) so that's not surprising. The movement alarm went off a couple of times so might have to adjust the sensitivity on it.

    Does anyone else struggle to get back to sleep in the middle of the night - I was awake for another hour after putting her back down. Very frustrating.

    I've got an Oi Oi bag too - like your tip MD about putting extra stuff in the car. We did get caught out last week. I've just bought myself a little bag to go in it for mummy stuff (chapstick, emery board etc)

    Arte - hope you managed to get a photo done.

    Well I think she's just dropped off - time for a shower.

    Logan was just cracking up laughing, I have got a few chuckles before but he was just in hysterics. It has to be the cutest thing I have ever seen and heard. Cant wait till DH gets home so I can show him. Well my nice little routine seems to have dissapeared lol, he woke again last night for a feed. I am not to bothered he has been sleeping in in the morning giving me a chance to get some things done. We are off to Sydney tonight, so I really should be finishing the packing lol.

    Cally well done on getting K in the cot, was she in your room before? Its bizzare going to sleep without them in your room dont you think?

    LP they had really cute little singlet tops that sound like they would go great with your skirt.

    MD greattip on having another bag stashed away in the car, I am going to start doing that.

    Well better go and finish packing, so much stuff to take.

    Marydean - Some excellent tips there that I will definately take on board, thanks for that. Is talcum powder different to nappy rash powder?? I always use nappy rash powder on Maddie at each nappy change, is this bad?

    Katie - Oh how gorgeous! Cant wait for some laughs from my little one. Have fun in Sydney.

    Cally - Well done with the cot. I'm slowly working our way up to night sleeps in the cot by doing all her day sleeps there.

    Hayley - Also target has a cute girls dress that says something about santa on it....was it i love santa? Cant remember!

    In hospital they told me that baby powder is not recommended any more because it can trigger asthma in babies.

    Haley, you can get creams that help prevent nappy rash that work better than powder (my opinion anyway)

    wow so many posts!!!
    been busy.. making a mess more than anything lol.. been wrapping up the chrissi presents i have already and trying to find spots for them all lol cant wait till its christmas and i can get all this stuff out of my house but then of course there will be lots of stuff given to us that we will have to find room for...
    Asha has graduated to 000 lol she finally fits in them at 2mths and 1wk old lol they still have a bit of room but they dnt look rediculous anymore iykwim? time to put all the 0000 away...
    can u believe that my cold sores are only now almost gone??? and u know what did it? when i went to the gp for Ashas needles he told me to try paw paw ointment and its made a huge difference they started clearing up straight away just they were so big and in an akward position that they have taken so long...
    oh and with the baby powder thing i have been using it on Asha from day one it really helps her with heat rash etc but i had no idea about it i agree why would they make a baby product thats harmful its very frustrating!!!
    arte - thats interesting about the asthma thing suppose it makes sence...
    haley - i think they are the same not sure though i always use powder on Asha too no one ever told me it was so bad..
    katie - how cute!!! Asha cracked up in her sleep the other night but thats the only time i have heard her laugh so far lol..
    cally - sounds like a successful night in the cot well done!!
    lp - glad scarlet is having a better day ive also seen christmas outfits in big w and they have small santa hats in those variety christmasy kinda stores...
    md - we leave stuff in the car when dp and i go out together but usually its just myself and bubs and i dnt drive i think thats why my nappy bag gets so full.. alot of the time i do try to pack light but its hard lol...
    haley - not sure on the change mats i didn't know they were sold seperately my bag came with one but its just plain, very soft though without being absorbant i love it..
    gl bekz!!!!!
    rennee - how are u coping with night shift?? dp has been on 10pm to 5am this week instead of his 5-1 its strange adjusting and it does get a little overwhelming being alone at night when theres so much to do...
