we are doing okay, the hv thinks verity may have dairy allergy as her poops are dark green and she has a rash/ excema (sp?) all over her face. E45 is helping but still a bit there, so i have to cut all dairy from my diet, just trying to do a tesco shop online, the amount of things that contain dairy its a nightmare.
Veriry sleeps very well at night, usually 9 to 3 then 3.30 to 6/7, then 7.30 to 9.30ish so cant complain!!
the bouncy/vibrating chair is great, she loves it and it usually sends her asleep when she is stroppy!
Also she enjoys her playmat (we have fisher price rainforrest sounds) it chills her when she just doesnt want any more cuddles, also she likes the flashing lights!
Nsn, her face has cleared up, but she is still pooing green, HV thinks she may be a bit colicy? so not sure, she is refering us to a dietician. But hopefully dairy free will help me lose a coulpe of LBs!
She now has cradle cap, so trying everything under the sun to get rid of that!
Hows everyone else doing? How are all the babies? sleeping well i hope!! xx
Hi NSN!!! - we are doing great! loving FF (BF my last two) J is a VERY contented baby and sleeping well, last night fed at 10.30pm, 4.10am and 8.00am so can't complain at that for 3 weeks old! Had him weighed on Monday and he is now 9lbs 7oz so he's put on almost a 1lb in 10 days
Yay for being 22 weeks! just trying to think what I thought was good to buy before hand I bought my pram direct from Silver Cross...I've got one like this http://www.silvercross.co.uk/outlet/3DC-outlet-offer/ that's a great price as they are also doing the car seat half price too so under £300 for a really good travel system.
I bought lot's of nappies, a mixture of Pampers and Asda ones in newborn and size 2's which he will be going into in the next week or so...both really good, don't by Huggies they are SHIT!
A washing net bag thingy for washing all the scratch mitts and bibs and socks to stop from clogging your washing machine and keeping all the small things together
One of those circular things for hanging small items on, I have 2 of those.
Tesco baby-gro's and vets are really small made so don't buy too many of those, Asda newborn ones are bigger and wider so last longer.
Sudocrem - I always use it at every nappy change but these days think they advise not to use anything but to me it's a preventative and J has never had a sore bum.
A cot top changer - this is really saving my back and it's got a slide out shelf for wipes, cream etc. I got mine half price cost £30 but worth every penny.
Ebay - have a look on Ebay for some items, I got a lovely rocking baby seat for £8 which is currently £69 in Mothercare, it was in immaculate condition and I just washed it all so looks brand new.
Look out for the baby events - Asda has one on now so yo0u can stock up on nappies/bottles etc cheaply.
What are you guys doing!!! ??? i need you tips and advice!!
Ethan feed 9pm, 12pm, 3am, 5 am and 7am - How are you guys going from 9-3 or 10-4am?????????
Are you breastfeeding or bottle feeding? How many ounzes/how long do you breast feed?
Im breastfeeding and its every blooming 2 hours of the day and we go to 3
hours at night. Hes putting on 12ozs a week so is having plenty.
NSN - How exciting for wedding day!! Cant believe how quickly your pg'cy is going, probably isnt going quick enough for you though. my tips, I have found the diaper genie very good it squashes 20 nappies in a air tight bag, stock up on nappys too i go through 10 a day! oh and if you use a bottle make sure you get the dr brown bottles to help reduce colic/wind.
