    Hi,

    Hope you're all having a cruisy Sunday! I left Louis with dh this morning and went on a bit of a shopping spree at Eastland! Bought some new clothes etc - I think I deserve it - hehe!

    DH is off to work tomorrow so it will be interesting to see how the week goes. Louis is being pretty good and seems to be lasting more 3 1/2-4 hours at the moment. I so hope he stays that way!

    We put him in his 0000 outfit that we first had him in after birth and he's pretty much grown out of it! His little feet are too big for the space! hehe. It was a pretty small outfit though. He still fits into his other 0000 clothes but it's exciting to see the changes so obviously.

    Nikki - I'm breastfeeding - My shopping trips have to be rushed in between feeds!

    Yep - My dh is doing really well. I haven't even bathed Louis yet - he's been doing that. It's actually a big surprise in some ways because he wasn't very big on helping out with anything before Louis arrived and now he's helping out with everything. He has had a couple of weeks off though and he's back to work tomorrow so we'll see if it keeps up!! He's been getting his sleep at nights though so sometimes he's fresher than me through the daytime.

    Hope everyone's had a fab weekend and that your babes have been delightful. The weather has been sensational here in Sydney and Gussyboy's been a happy little fella today. I've just woken from a lovely snooze with Gussyboy to the smell of homemade pizzas cooking. My DH is a really good cook so am really looking forward to tucking into dinner in a little while.

    Kristie, It's great to hear things are going so well for you and DH with lil Louis. Your DH sounds smitten with his little boy. How did your shopping trip go? It's tricky buying clothes in the first few weeks post delivery - while your tum is shrinking away it's tricky knowing what size to buy.

    Nikki, How are your boys handling the change in focus now that Chantelle is home? Must be a bit of a shock for them. Are they able to be of help to you and Grant?

    Linda, Am sorry to hear your caesar wound is causing you grief. I found my post op caesar pain improved exponentially after a couple of weeks. Hope the same happens for you.

    Hi everyone

    I am just popping in to see how the new mothers and bubs are going.

    Kirsty - I am glad to see that Gus is doing well. He is really is a trooper and what a story for his 21st about his entry into the world. Iam sure he will suceed at everything in life as he certainly has that fighting spirit.

    Krisvee - I am glad to hear the DH has taken such a keen interest in the baby. It is really is special i think for them to bond early on as we have had 9 months of bonding already.

    Linda - I hope that you start to feel better soon.

    Have a lovely week ladies and hopefully I can join you in here soon. [-o<

    Good morning!

    Well Louis has been a little cheeky this morning. I think he must be needing more awake time because he did not want to go to sleep! I gave him tummy time which he did really well at and then had to put him in the bouncer in the bathroom so I could have a shower!

    Tracey - Not long now! I can't wait until you join us in here with your little bundle! Rest up now!

    Kirsty- Ooh homemade pizza - yum! Lucky you that dh can cook! Luckily I'm back into my normal clothes with just a bit of extra tummy - 3kg to go! I'm hoping with this beautiful weather it shouldn't be too hard to lose with some walking. I bought a bikini with a singlet top though because of my stretchies - grrr.

    OK better go - still not dressed and have dishes and washing to hang out - it's a beautiful day in Melbourne today!

    Hi Girls.

    I've finally found some time to spend on the computer. Tristan's being a little pain at the moment. I still am a bit slow to getting the automatic fountain under control whenever I change him!!!! He's peed alot on his father, once on the door in the kitchen (when we had the change table in there for bath), once on the midwife on a home visit, once on his own face (poor little man). Oh well.

    What brand of disposable nappies do you guys use? I've found that huggies are best. I tried the babylove ones, but it left these little silicon like balls all over Tristan's bum. I don't know if they're harmful because it would be a pity to waste them (we've got 3 big packs). I've been meaning to go cloth nappies, but Tristan's Still getting used to my milk, and it's a disaster zone down there!!!

    Kirsty - Jealousy has kicked in. I love homemade pizza, especially with the gourmet stuff on it like eggplant, artichoke, sun dried tomato, salami, kalamata olives, bocconcini and roasted capsicum. Yummo!!!!

    Linda & Nikki - I didn't think they used staples anymore. I've got dissolveable stitches. Are you guys getting niggling pains above your scars?

    Hi Kathryn. Can you please add my details too.

    I'm going for a quick sleep, then I'm going to the GP to get my scar checked out and get some more drugs.

    Love and Hugs....................Bonnie

    Hey Bonnie! Congrats on your little boy!

    Yep - we've had the water fountain thing happening as well! Also from his bum as well - hehe. dh has been peed on a couple of times as well as pooed on as have I. We've both caught vomit as well! Oh the joy of it all -hehe.
    We're using huggies as well. We haven't had any accidents with these yet (other than once when we didn't do it up tight enough - hehe) We have cloth nappies as well and when we run out of newborn disposables will be using them mainly. He doesn't really fit into the towelling nappies yet and the flannelette ones seemed to get drenched.

    kristie, we use a dummy a bit, but emma is not really all that interested. she only takes it when she is hungry, then it frustrates her within a minute because she realises she cant get any milk out of it. she does like sucking her fingers though....

    nikki, glad to hear your scar isnt hurting, i hope it heals soon for you though.

    bonnie, i am using huggies as well. i have found them really good, no leaks. that sounds weird about the baby love ones. maybe you could put liners in them and use what is left, just not to waste them? i didnt think they used staples anymore either. but it was a locum OB who did it, a lot of the staff were surprised he used them too :-s but they all said he did a really good job anyway.

    tracey, hope you are in here very soon!!!! \/

    kirsy, that sounded great, waking up from a snooze with your boy to DH cooking tea. sounds like the makings of a great day im really glad you are coming into this thread!!

    well, Emma has had restless nights the last 2 nights. she wants to feed almost constantly for about 1 1/2 hours at around midnight, then up every 2 1/2 - 3 hours for the rest of the night. i hope it is just a growth spurt and she has longer breaks soon.....
