    Shannon - Good Luck for tomorrow, will be thinking of you both

    Michelle - That`s great that Alex is doing so well, keep it up little man your doing well.

    Lesley - Hope you and Chloe are well.

    Juliette - How was your night?

    Sorry to hear you`ve both had sleepless nights, I`m looking forward to the day when Matthew doesn`t wake up for 7 hours, wishful thinking at this stage when it`s every 3 - 4 hours or even 2 hours sometimes.

    Take Care

    Dee - I can't wait for Alex to sleep 7hrs a night also.
    Hope you are feeling much better.

    I have had a horrible cold since the weekend. Just can't wait for it to go now.
    At least DH is home Friday. MIL arrives on Saturday for 2 weeks not sure if i is going to be a help or a pain. Last time she was here i still did everything.

    Michelle - I really hope your MIL can be helpful to you this time. Maybe just keep asking her to do stuff and she will get the hint? Uno... throw the washing basket at her a couple of times Sorry to hear you aren't feeling the best.

    Dee- I hope Matthew can start sleeping longer for you soon. I know you have probably heard it 1000 times but the first 6 weeks are pretty hellish. It will soon start falling into place.

    Hi girls,

    Had a better night's sleep last night. I just cuddled her in with me in bed. Usually I am too scared to do this, but I really needed to sleep, and it was the only thing I could do. I am so scared of rolling on her. I guess I really need to learn how to encourage her to settle herself in her bassinette beside our bed. Could be making a rod for my own back otherwise.

    We had our appointment with the Child Health Nurse today. It's been exactly one week since I left hospital and she's put on 315 grams since discharge. Apparently the average is 150gm in one week?? No wonder I have sore breasts. At least I can stop stressing about milk supply. Obviously she's getting enough! I'm much happier knowing that.

    I hope everyone and their beautiful bubs are doing well. I wish I could be of more use to you all - but I am so clueless about this motherhood thing! thankyou all so much for being there. I hope to be more on the ball soon.

    Sending lots of nighttime sleepy vibes through cyber space to all BB newborns and mums out there.

    Juliette - don't worry about the self settling yet. You just do what you need to do to get some rest. Gabby is only just self settling now and she is 2.5 months (and I am lucky that she kind of figured it out on her own). I wouldn't stress yourself out about it. As for you being clueless - we all are the first time around. It's not like it suddenly comes to you once the bub is born. The best advice I got was from our own, lovely, Fi. She said that the first few weeks is just about survival. If you and bubs are alive, you must be doing something right! Hannah is putting a fabulous amount of weight on which is wonderful! It's great reassurance, hey?

    Just realised we have another set of BB twins Jessalyn & Kynan were both born on the same day!

    Have to agree with Deb there Juliette. In the beginning it's just a matter of making sure you're both getting enough sleep, food etc to survive! Zander still hasn't figured out the whole self settling thing yet, so I wouldn't worry about it too much yet.

    Tanya - I`m trying another cough medicine, it tastes awful but seems to work until about 3am then I start coughing again and it has a child proof cap on it which seems to be also Deeanne proof so Mark has to open it for me, not much good when I need some at 3am and Mark`s not home.

    Michelle - I hope your feeling better soon, hope you don`t have this flu thing that I have which seems to be going around. Hope your MIL helps you this time around, perhaps give her a few hints then she`ll help out.

    Juliette - I thought the same that I would be making a rod for my own back by taking Matthew to bed when I was totally exhausted and needed my sleep, it`s the last thing I wanted to start but when Mummy is exhusted it doesn`t leave us with much option.

    Oh Matthew has just woken and wants dinner, I better go.

    Hey everyone

    Thought i would join the ranks here now

    Everything is going really well here, Mason has been pretty good, erratic feeds and sleeping patterns but i expected all that the second time around so a lot more relaxed about it all.
    Have been lucky to catch up on sleep with hubby doing night shift the last few nights, so i think that is why i am still sane
    Sorry to hear some of you are having troubles but it does get better with time like others have said. You are all doing great jobs by the sounds of it

    Shannon: Thinking of you and your family and hope all goes well on Friday

    Well will update more later

    Take care
    Belinda

    Yay on the sleep Serendipity!! Thats fab for you.

    Juliette - I;m with the others. Apparently routine doesn't start kicking in til after 6 weeks, so don't stress about what you are doing now. Its all about survivial now. The other piece of advise I was given which is pretty true is that just when you think you have something that works in settling a baby - they go and change, and you have to try something else!!! Its a neverending battle, so just make sure you are getting enough sleep. Fabulous weight gain. WSell done!

    Hi All,

    I got some sleep last night! Yay! Hannah dearest slept for 4 hours, had a feed, then slept for 3 hours. So proud. I won't expect it every night, but it was nice to have a little catch up on sleep myself.

    Actually, I had to wake her after four hours....it worried me a little that she'd sleep so long when she's so little, without waking for a feed.

    Can't win! I worry when she's not getting enough sleep, and then I worry when she's getting too much...

    I think I seriously need to relax and go with the flow...

    Welcome Belinda, and congrats on Mason's birth! That's great that you're getting some sleep.

    Juliette - that is wonderful that you got some sleep last night! What a good girl Hannah was! Ikwim about freaking out when they sleep for too long. For a long while there, I would wake up after a few hours and wait for her to start crying and stress out if she didn't. Gone are those days, LOL! There's been several occasions that I have gone in to make sure she is still breathing. Esp. the first time she slept for 10 hours!! Now I kill for those sleeps Don't worry, it will all come together and all this hassle will become a blur. It's just hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you are sleep-deprived and over it!

    Belinda - sounds like you guys are going great guns. You sound so relaxed! I hope I am like that if and when we have another bubs. Good on you!

    Welcome Belinda and Mason, I`m glad to hear that your getting some sleep, hopefully it will keep up.

    Juliette - Glad you got some sleep last night, like Deb IKWYM how you freak out when you think they should be up, I did it the other night but it was only after Matthew had been asleep for 3 hours, he woke an hour later.

    Lesley - Sounds like Chloe is doing well, like you I haven`t yet caught Matthew`s smiles on camera.

    Well Matthew is one month old today, in a way it seems like years ago when he was born in another it just seems like yesterday. I`ll see you all over in the 1 - 3 month thread soon.

    Kathryn - Could you move Matthew`s details over thanks

    Take Care

    Hi All,

    Well, Mum and Dad have gone back home to Brisbane, so I'm on my own with Hannah from Monday (Tim will be home on the weekend). Scary thought, but I am feeling much more confident now. I can't believe what a life changing experience it is to have a little person so reliant on you. I am sooo humbled by the responsibility.

    Congrats on your first month of life Matthew and Chloe! Hope you're going easy on your Mummies! Will see you both in 1-3 month thread soon no doubt Deeanne and Lesley. You've both given me hope that I can make it through!
