    Cass such a buggar you are getting sick again I would have like to see Oprah, my closest bet would have been the Australia Zoo but I didn't go. not even sure if she's been there yet. My sister however saw her at Federation Square and was up really close!!! she got some fantastic photos.

    HPL hon I don't have too much sympathy for your one or two nights of being up feeding. 4 hours is the most I have slept at one time since DS was born and even then that's only been once, maybe twice? So I do hope you can find a way to function at your parties

    DS was pretty good at the BBQ, didn't make any difference to his sleeping though but last night he did sleep for 4 hours when he 1st went down at 7pm. We went to bed 2 hours later though so I think I might try to go to bed at the same time as DS tonight and see if I can get a longer sleep in.

    Cherished I think ur amazing that you can still function on little sleep... This is what I had preparred myself for the whole pregnancy - lack of sleep, crying, up everynight I had mentally prepared myself then she turned out to be a sleeper...

    See this is why I don't like posting in here my bad nights are sometimes your good nights ....

    HPL: never feel bad about posting in here!!! it's all about sharing our experiences: good, bad and the ugly hahahaha! (the ugly being me typing this in my bright pink pyjamas LOL!).

    cherished: i have been trying to also go to bed a bit earlier lately just to get a bit more sleep while she is going through (what i am desperately holding onto as the reason for her sudden more frequent waking ) a growth spurt. it's not panning out too well though as i love having the evenings all for myself...ah well, it's only temporary i guess.

    AFM: officially unwell. bah! not happy jan!! and it would seem that Marta is definitely following me down that path. last night she struggled to go down (unusual) so went to bed at 8pm (normally is 6.30-7) then up again at 11.30, then again at frikkin' 3am THEN partied until 4am, then up again at 5.30am. but went down straight away and is just waking up now. wowsers, after they have been sleeping AOK it really comes as a shock went it goes a bit haywire...

    Hi Girls,

    Long time no post !!!!!!!
    Just had a quick squiz over the past few posts and oh lordy I must say I am so with you all on this sleeping stuff!!! So if it helps we too are in the crap sleeping club
    Rupert is a tiny bit better than what he used to be but oh i thought at 3 months he may start sleeping thru - the best we have done is :
    7pm feed
    sleep 8.30pm until 10.30pm
    Feed
    Sleep until 1.30am
    Feed
    sleep until 5am
    sleep 8am

    otherwise i have managed 1.5 hours sleep during the night in between feeds and trying to get him back to sleep !!
    I look at my bedroom not as a place of sleep but a place of torture where a 6.5kg alarma clock goes off to wake me every hour and a half!!

    Been taking him to an oseteopath and that has seemed to help slightly with his terrible wind and his sleeping!!
    Well fingers crossed four months will bring on the magic sleep thrus!!
    I think maybe there is agrowth spurt happening here if that is possible!!

    hugs to all
    Anna

    Hey Cass it is amazing what the osteo can do I am glad that it has helped Marta too
    Hope everyone is going well.
    Remember before the babies arrived how often we were posting..now so so busy b ut its great to still keep in touch and know what everyone is up to -it certainly put my mind at ease to know that Rupert was not the only baby in Australia not sleeping through the night!!

    Hi girls

    Anna yes your bub is certainly not the only one lol All the parents I speak to seem to have those great babies that sleep through the night but DS is still certain he's going to have boobie every 2 hours. BUT last night he slept for 3 hours 'during' the night so I GOT A 3 HOUR SLEEP yippppppie! I feel a bit bad at my lack of posting but I also love that we are keeping in touch

    HPL don't feel bad about your good nights! Lord I'm happy for you hon dh and I agree that DS is a great baby and really healthy so if the worst thing we are dealing with is a bit of fatigue than we are happy kwim as Cass said it's all about sharing the experience... all of it reading back over my post it does kinda sounded like sour grapes I didn't mean it to sound like that!

    Cass how much does it suck that you are sick and in the summer too! Do you take heaps of zinc? I find that really helps with my immunity.

    How all your christmas plans going? We are still keeping it quiet. I do have something special for dh though. I got a pendant with DS's finger print on it and it's just adorable and so small Can't wait to give it to him! Gotta go DS is a little grizzly bear today we are taking him to the pead to check out his the marks on his legs. Even though the GP's explination of capillary damage fromteh strapping was logical we still thougth we'd get the peads opinion seeing we reached our safety net this calander year and it'll only cost up $17 to see him rather than $88!

    hi girls!

    Anna: you are sooo not alone in the midnight parties lol! Marta fell asleep at 6.30 but woke 40 minutes later and cried until 9pm . she hasnt done that for almost 2 months!!

    Cherished: oohh no! i dont take any zinc...well other than what is in elevit....hiw much do you take?
    and something i was thinking about too is if mebbe the cloth nappies are wakng him at night? i had that happen with DD1...so i was norti and used sposies at night . it's probably not the case, but thought to brainstorm anyway!

    Milly: any news on the harness??

    AFM: we are all good! sniffly nose is abating finally! Marta's sleep is regressing ATM, but i am hoping that is a mere transitory happening
    xmas shopping is done . marta and i finally finished it all up today...even wrapped!! tonight we are at the neighbours for dinner. meant to be there but DH is MIA with DD1...italian punctuality
    can't believe how much our babies are growing...i was at my calmbirth reunion lunch thingy the other day and got to cuddle a 5 week old.......TEENY TINY.

    Hi Cass, I know what you mean about the little babies! I haven't really seen any newer babies than DS apart from 1 week younger at parent group BUT at the BBQ on Sunday there was a baby that was 7 days younger than DS and she was REALLY tiny they were even still handling her like a newborn as she didn't have any head control etc, was really weird to see actually.

    Zinc: I know that what is in elevit isn't that much really. I didn't even have dh on menevit because out zinc and Vic powder was stronger than what was in the menevit. In fact I was chatting with the pead about vitamins when I saw him today and even he said that they are really not satisfactory which is why I didn't take it either as my multivitamin was also stronger. I'd suggest to get a straight Zinc sulpliment if you are prone to colds.

    I had also considered that cloth was the problem with DS sleeping but we've had him in a disposable at night for a couple of weeks now but it doesn't seem to make any difference other than that we don't need to change him at every wake up kwim.

    Speaking of the pead our visit went well. He said he hadn't seen any marks like what are DS before but he also said based on the characteristics it doesn't look like anything worry about phew! then I got on about supliments and he recommended a multivitamin for babies and an iron supliment so I am going to start DS on them as soon as I go out and buy them.

    And my real news of the day is that I caved and gave DH his christmas presant today!!! lol I am hopeless! I guess it's cause we don't really do 'christmas' or presents really and we were having a really nice family time on the bed with DS and I just felt heaps of love and gave it to him. The look on his face was worth every penny. He loves it so it's made my day

    Cas I got a pendant made with his finger print in it with something engraved on the back too and DS's name on the front. It's so tiny I just love it I got it from clay - time dot com dot au I'm not sure how dh will use his, it's a bit small to were as a necklace on a man and dh doesn't wear any jewelery anyway, in fact he doesn't have a wedding ring, I gave him a circle coin type thing which has engraved on it the same thing as I got on the back of this little pendant on one side and on the other it has engraved what my engagement and wedding ring has on it so it's really special. So I guess I knew he'd love this little fingerprint pendant. Not sure what he will do with it so please any suggestions will be very welcome I thought of hanging it from his mobile phone but would hate for it to get stolen or lost, also on his keys but again could get lost... we do have a tag on them with our phone number though but I guess it'd get really scratched? I wonder i I could put it in to something else? hmmmm that could be an idea I'm going to make mine into a necklace, go into one of those bead shops and do up something pretty, think I'll do that on Tuesday when I'm in town for parents group

    Well on the sleeping front I got a stretch of just over 3 hours sooooooo happy!!!

    I THINK.... yes I think.... that ds went for 5 hours last night sleeping with a teeny weeny wake up in between but went back to sleep with the dummy instead of a feed!!! yep I'm pretty sure I woke up and thought it hasn't been 2 hours yet so I'll put the dummy in and see if he goes back to sleep and if not I'll feed him in 10 mins. Well I woke up 3 hours later YAY! so I'm sure he went from 9:15pm - 2am between feeds SO happy then he went for just over 2.5 hours for the next feed. So I'm feeling relatively sane today. Not sure if I mentioned that yesterday we were going to do some finger/toes painting? Well they turned out great! Just love them. We thought we'd mark his 3 month birthday by doing something special and now we have a lovely painting to hang on his bedroom wall and we did a couple more to give to DS's grandparents for christmas In other news I've secretly become addicted to true blood! DH's brother gave us the 1st series and I'm hooked! Yesterday we just started watching the 2nd series and the shoe is totally off in the sick things that's on it but for some reason I have to keep watching so today will be more of that and some house work I think. Hope you are all well

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE trueblood too LOL!!! how awesome is it? it totally is just vampire porn, but omg it is sooo addictive! i am hanging out for season three now...

    i also love the idea of the painting. we got some ink thingo from Mum, but it doesnt show up very well. i reckon some lovely bold primary colours would be good. off to spotlight me thinks...what kind of paper did you use??

    that is AWESOME news on the sleep! what a champion effort! it's amazing how different you feel when they've done a sleep like that huh?!

    for us though last night was horrendous: up at 11, then 4, then 6 until 9.30...i can tell that something is not right in her world. she seems to be all stiff in her body again...cant wait to see the osteo tomorrow. i think it was too long between drinks. also she is getting really cranky in her sleep as she wants to roll onto her belly, but cant quite manage it. she can do it when she is awake and really concentrating but i guess in her sleep it is too hard, and this is why she woke up at 11 and at 4 this morning...i hope she learns soon

    today we have our mothers group xmas party. i hope the weather holds. it has been AWFUL here. we have had drizzle and freezing weather. yesterday we were in jackets and scarves and today is only meant to go a max of 17!! FFS it is DECEMBER people!!! waahhhhh why did i leave QLD?????????

    Awwww where is my reply I've just woken up from an afternoon nap and fed DS then he's back down for a quick snooze.

    true blood is totally vamp porn! lol it should be x rated if it isn't! we are half way through the 2nd season now... loving it!

    hope you've had a good day at the xmas party. I hear you on the weather, yesterday it was REALLY hot and I even stripped off and stood int he rain, then dh passed me bub and we had a little dance in it... That was pretty special actually. Today it's cold though

    awww cherished your family rain dance sounds just divine!! that is such a forever memory IYKWIM

    yeah we had an awesome time at the xmas party...until the storm hit so we all ran to the pub that was open across the road bahahahaha! coopers pale ale all 'round lol. ah well, the kids loved it and loved having pressies to open! Marta slept in the close carrier the entire time so missed all the action!

    and the weather is just getting worse here they had snow up in the mountains. today we had to wear jackets, scarves and beanies arghhhh! meant to be 9 degrees tonight, so had to really pile on the clothes on Marta for sleep. wishing i hadnt taken off the flanelette sheets now.

    poor marta is still out of sorts today. she just seems so frustrated. i do think it is the rolling thing, so am that she figures it out soon enough...

    off to the osteo tomorrow afternoon so will talk to her about it then and see if there is any stiffness or whatnot going on.

    the weather really is insane isn't it! It's felt like the seasons have been changing for a few years now so I'm not really surprised. How funny you ended up in the pub! and yes the rain dance is a memory forever

    Hope Marta is better after her osteo visit. DS still isn't rolling from back to front but every now and again will flip himself onto his side which is cute.

    Last night was a killer sleep wise DS woke to feed every 2 hours so that was only about 1.5 hrs sleep at a time and this morning I am trashed. Even more so because I am pretty sure I have mastitis my left boob has been sore for a couple of days and yesterday late afternoon I started to feel flu like symptoms and all day was hot and then cold. After doing a quick google it sounds like that is what it is. There is a spot which is a bit warmer on the boob too so I'm off to the GP today. My herbal medicine man had already given me herbs for it incase I got it so that I could get on top of it asap but they didn't do anything so far.

    ds is crying gotta go
