How's Leah today? I hope shes more settled than yesterday bless her
TyMa - I'm 11 weeks pp and dtd still hurts if he goes too deep (sorry tmi lol) I was getting a little worried too cause I didnt expect it to hurt for so long after? I havent had a period yet either, Im bfing so take it thats why. Glad Macies jabs went well bless her =D
Skye still sleeps in her crib in my room, can't imagin not having her next to me, not sure when I'll put her in her own room yet, I love having her sleep next to me =)
Momatmadhouse, hey! Glad you had a nice xmas, your pictures of Skye are lovely =)
I feel sooo refershed today, Skye went to bed last night at about 10pm, woke up at 8.45am for a feed then fell back to sleep until 11.15am!
Just wondering what everyones bedtime routine is? Skye is a great sleeper (fingers crossed I havent junked it!! lol) She doesnt go to bed til late tho (normally around 10pm) and sleeps til around 8am. Its been hectic hear over xmas with visiting family, late nights, boys staying up late cause theyre off school so keeping her up has just worked. Now everything has gone back to "normal" we are going to try and get her to bed earlier x
Leah was up all night. I think she slept too much yesterday. I eventually around 2am had to bring her into bed with me just to get a little bit of sleep. She then didn't go back to sleep after her 4am bottle. Finally took her out of her bassinet at about 6am and put her on her play mat and she was smiling away so I decided to bring out the camera to try and get a picture and she immediately stops. I finally have to give up cause needed to get to work and so put it away and she started smiling again. I guess she is camera shy just like me.
katerdid- Glad I am not alone in the bleeding, but sorry you are too! Hopefully it will end soon! I will probably start trying for another baby in a year and a half or so, so now I am wondering if Mirena was worth all the trouble!
I co-sleep as well. We have a co-sleeper that goes in the bed. It has edges on it so it's like a bassinet. I like that we don't have to worry about blankets and she's still right with us. I am not sure how much longer she will fit in it though! Once she outgrows it I will probably try putting her in her crib, but I will really miss her!
Shell N Bump- Lauren goes to bed at 10 too and then wakes up around 7. Sometimes she wakes up at 3:30 or 4 for an additional feeding. Can't figure out what makes her do that sometimes and not others. While Lauren gets her last feed and officially goes to bed at 10, she usually falls asleep before that downstairs. I should probably put her to bed earlier, but I am afraid she will wake up earlier if she doesn't eat at 10 when I go to bed.
Alana goes to sleep at around 7.30pm until about 2am then sleeps until 5am and then back asleep until 8am.
Glad Macie was ok. Is she sleeping loads?
She had a good sleep after they were done but shes been awake for about an hour or so now, She had a bad screaming fit Was horrible she was bright red from crying and wouldnt settle at all but shes calm now after some cuddles and shes lying in her swing babbling & cooing away at the little pink bird that hangs off the toy bar xx
The twins usually stay up (though have a night evening nap around 8-9pm) until 10-11pm when they get their last feed of the night and then get put into their beds. I feed one, plunk her down and hope she falls asleep on her own and then go and feed the other and do the same. Usually they soothe themselves to sleep at night so it's working well. From 10-11pm they sleep through with Ashley waking at 6:30am for a feed and then straight back to bed and Libby sleeping until 9:30 and staying awake for an hour. Both will awaken at 11:30am or so for next feed and to get started for the day. It works well since I have a 5yo who gets up at 7:15am and I have to get ready for school, she's out of the house at 8am and that gives me some time before Libby wakes to have breakfast and do some cleaning around the house. The only problem really is that DD1 needs a pickup from the bus at 11am and if DH isn't home (he's in university so his days vary) I have to grab sleeping babies, bundle them up and toss them into the stroller at which point they wake and cry because they want feeding.
I have 6 more days of disposable diaper days left (doctor's appointment). At which point I'm pretty sure the girls will finally be over the 10lbs mark and able to try their reusable ones. Only thing is.. while their weight will be in the right range they are getting taller and taller and I'm pretty sure they won't have the 'fatness' needed to ensure no leakage. Argh. They are only just now able to wear their 0-3 month BabyLegs and can barely keep them up. They will be 3 months on Jan.7th. Anyone else with this problem? I've bought AIO diapers by Kushies.
Acon, thats what I'm afraid of... She's been sleeping thru from around 4ish weeks so I think if I started to put her to bed earlier, she might start waking in the night for a feed... lol
Thanks Jen & ahcigar =)
Littlestars, you have a great routine going, I imagin its difficult with two babies to get into a routine, it can be hard enough with one! Skye settles herself of an evening, I have her gliding crib next to my bed so I sit on my bed, feed her, then put her into her crib once shes emptied me lol
I'm wondering if shes heading into another growth spurt, these last 2 evenings she's wanted to feed a lot more, good excuse to snuggle on the sofa and cuddle her tho
