I put Lauren in a fleece snow suit. It keeps her warm but she doesn't seem to get too hot. I put a coat or sweatshirt on and then put the ergo carrier on top of that. We are at an awkward stage right now where she is too big for the insert and a little too small without it. I have been going without. She can't really see out, but that also blocks the wind for now. What have you been doing? I always love to compare notes!
The ergo works well for me. I am small framed, but tall. I am not sure how well it would work on a shorter person.
I start my diet Monday and have found that I keep eating bad things because I won't be able to soon, ha ha.
Lol, I can see someone sitting in their kitchen "just one more time, just the last time!!!" shoveling brownies in or something.
I usually have Kian just in a fleece jammie type thing and a hat and mittens. He is a heater so when he is wrapped in teh Moby he is warm. I think the last time I needed more clothing on him though his cheeks got pretty pink. I usually just had a sweatshirt on with the wrap...He isn't fitting well though in the Moby so I need to stop going until I decide on a soft structured carrier. I was told the Ergo is great on taller people but straps done cinch tight enough for shorties. And im quite short. But before hearing that I was so getting the gray galaxy one. So cute !
I am stilllll trying to decide on a baby carrier. Im short and small frame so heard Ergo wont work well for me. Im looking at Angelpack carriers now...my Moby wrap is def not cutting it anymore with Kian being 18 lbs. Just feels like im going to topple over!
I am only 4ft 9" and the close baby carrier/sling works well for me. Alana loves it.
so last night I decided I had enough of Alana just wanting to sleep on me so when she woke at 12.55am for a feed I fed her and then at 1.11 I put her down while she was still kind of sleepy but not completely out. She moaned and grumbled, I picked her winded her again and put her back, repeat until 1.40am I then decided that she was just trying to sleep on me, so I lay in bed and listened to her grumble and moan (no real crying) I got up put in her dummy again and finally at 2.21a, after I put her dummy in again she went to sleep. After her feed at 4.45am she went down like a dream and then today for her nap she also did it, as she soon as she clicked I was just replacing her dummy and not picking her up.
I am hoping we are now going to get back to normal as I have git nothing done while she has been sleeping on me.
I need to get something easy to feed in as I am getting really bad back , neck and shoulder feeding her. My old injury is playing up, anyone know what kind of carrier/sling is best for breast feeding?
Second day in a row where the girls are on totally different sleep schedules. Bah! They are eating on the same schedule thankfully but sleep-wise, one goes down as the other wakes. At least their night sleep hasn't been affected (knock on wood!)
No suggestion on the carrier for BFing. I have a BabyBjorn for regular use but I can't imagine one could use it for BFing.
i thought i'd lost this thread but then i found it
sma- i was just told i have the coil with hormones?
shelleney- i used to have depo and liked it i'm thinking of asking for the coil out and not using anything for a bit to get back to normal not having sex at mo
hippy- fab about Alana and porridge
thank you very much for photos phantom i must get some more on here littlestars libby flipping, Travis flipped from back to front for the 1st time at baby massage Tues (think he was just showing off)

i was meant to be going away this weekend for my bday with oh but his parents looked after Travis Tues n he cried while i was gone (1 hour) as he missed me? so they thought it might be best if we didnt go and my boyfriend said he would be too worried. Bit disappointed to be honest but think we're going for a meal 2moro night
Hippy- have you seen this? http://www.babyandbump.com/breastfee...koala-kin.html
Dont know what they're like but will be looking at reviews. Skye is finally big enough to make me start to ache,lol. We were feeding in our Kari-me and that was great for the first couple of months but I cant seem to get her in the feeding posistion any longer as she seems to long!? I could just be me as I am sure they are meant to be able to nurse in them till 6 months but I am not sure. Well done on the sleeping.
Littlestars- That sounds tough with your LO's sleeping at different times, hope night times stays ok xx
Thanks for the video Michelle, it's soooo lovely seeing all our beautiful babies!! x
Skye is on solid now... we started off with Rice and now am onto Breakfast, Lunch and Fruit for tea. She LOVES it! I tried and tried to hold off but she was so ready, crying and grabbing for my food bless her!
