Missy - I wondered too, but glad everything is now ok!
Waula - how awful for them. I actually think having Z has brought us more together, maybe being in the spare room helps, we're not both exhausted. When DH is tired he's really grumpy so the fact he sleeps is much better for me!

As for the tanking... He lasted a whole hour & 20 minutes, rubbish. After half an hour of cry, fall asleep, put in cot, cry repeat I had to feed him again. Surely he cant have been hungry? Be honest, have I been starving him? He left half nam ounce of the ebm at 5pm so I assumed was full up to that point?

HI LADS! Stopping in as the little man is passed out on my chest.
I hope sleep regressions and sicknesses pass quickly.
I love the wedding talk and photos. I still don't have our wedding album. We had a friend do our photography which I actually regret. She took really nice photos but missed a lot (close ups of my flowers and all the decorations I made, pictures of all the guests....)

My dog is on Prozac now, nothing too exciting with her (YAY!)

Eliott is growing like crazy. His 4 month appointment is next week because we're going to a folk fest this weekend. Camping with cloth diapers! Wish me luck on that one.

I was hanging out with a friend who has been saying she never wants kids. A day of playing with Eliott and she's talking about having her own. He's a good spokesperson for babies!

Cupcake - How did you get your nappy ticker? I went to that site but it wouldn't let me make one.

Oh yeah, we're not moving to England, apparently the site has too many issues right now.

kym - good luck with the camping (id be tempted to use sposies...)

i got my ticker from the cloth nappy tree, i had to register first and then made one. don't think it is that accurate though because i need to update how many cloth nappies i use a day. i think it is overestimating at the moment.

lozza - sometimes they like to feed to make themselves fall asleep (or at least R does, if he has fed but cant sleep then he just feeds until he sleeps, i feel his body relax in my arms when he feeds) alternatively he could be hungry? i guess they wouldnt take in milk if they didnt want it?

i didnt have enough milk for this evenings feed. he kept bobbing off each breast and getting upset. i was getting annoyed and kept trying to wind him (usual cause for bobbing) but when i felt my breasts they were extremely soft and floppy and empty. i gave him a bottle of ebm and he gobbled it down and then promptly fell asleep. feel a bit of a bf failure. its the first time its happened. i wonder if him sleeping through the night is causing my supply to drop?

Missy I edited my sympathy so I don't look so mad! . Glad its sorted. X

Waula, saš about your nct lady. know a few couples who haven't made it through the first year. Becoming a parent is a pretty brutal test of character and relationship solidity. I agree with Lozza's set up, OH gets to sleep, and therefore stays sane and vaguely supportive! Men REALLY can't handle tiredness!

Poor Roh is sooo hot! its horrible. Under instructions from the doctor I'm having to alternate calpol and neurofen every 2 hours to try and control his temp. its still going well over 40 degrees for the last 30 mins between doses. F has decided tonight was a good night to refuse to sleep, then totally meltdown about 1 hour ago. Ergh. Tough parenting day, my head is banging! Right, off to sleep, up at 12 for Roh's next dose.

Lozza i'm sure you haven't been starving him... Does he want to cluster feed do you think in the evenings?? Can't believe he can knock back a full carton and then still be hungry...sorry it's not improving...did you try the dairy free thing again? What's the status with dr/osteopath? Glad you and DH doing ok...me and DH had a tough few months but we're a LOT better now (combo of him liking being a daddy more and me not being quite so tired) but it was a grumpy few months for us

Emera poor you. Sicky babies are not fun. Bet this weather not helping him either
Completely agree about men being tired-free... I can cope with my tiredness but if we're both tired it's a completely snipey nightmare. X

Edit Cuppie hope your supply is ok... After doing his long(ish) stretch at night N def makes u for it in the morning by feeding every hour so I assumed the amount of milk in total was the same?

Cuppie, if R is sleeping through then yes, your supply will drop, but you'll still produce on demand. If he's not getting enough milk then he'll automatically feed more often, which will signal to produce more. It can take a few days for the volumes to adjust though. Hence the pre-growth spurt feeding frenzy, to boost supply.

Tried to get on here the other night - and the site was down for maintenance....

Some really lovely individual wedding pictures / stories - beautiful! (and the not so nice ones about your pics Emera....)

That video of the fish is crackin - the father is a bugger though!!

Feel for you Cuppie - hope the letter to the house owners works!!

Poor Roh..... he seems to have been in the war's a bit recently - hope he feels better soon! (and top marks for poo in the potty!!)

Good luck with the bonny baby comp Cuppie!! Lozza - sorry to have not responded -realise it's too late now, but the queue wasn't too bad at Tesco last week.... How did you go on? Going back on Wednesday to see how the pics turned out.... not holding my breath for anything decent / nice ones due to the fact he just scowled at the photographer.....

Not sure if this is of any interest to the northern ladies - but received a letter about the Baby Show being back in Manchester 31st Aug - 2nd Sept.... It's on at the Event City (near the Trafford Centre) rather than the GMEX. If anyone visits the website - thebabyshow.co.uk - you can get two tickets for £16 by quoting BS869 - which is supposedly a saving of 40%

Hope Roh feels better quickly.

Sorry about the house Cuppie, if it doesn't work out I hope you can find something even better. Your real estate system over there sounds a bit scary.

Love the pics that have been posted, baby and wedding.

Wt hope the boys start sleeping again soon.

So glad D's jabs went well Loo.

Dagny got her shots today too and has been either crying or sleeping. Gave her some Tylenol awhile ago and decided on another nap so I'm hoping she won't wake up crying again. It was fun to find out that she weighs 13 lbs 11 oz and is 26 in. now though.
