I don't think it's just BF babies, Amber was FF and she was bad at night times too at first. It's just hit & miss! I'm ok with it though, I am getting enough rest and as long as Millie is gaining weight and happy then that's all that matters
Amber is really good with Millie, she doesn't pay much attention to her but likes to come over and give her a random kiss or head stroke she likes to help with nappy changes too and ''sings'' to Millie when she cries! Too cute!
Wish I could say the same, Luke either pulls Oliver's hair or fingers, gives him the occasional shake or hits him round the head with a toblerone... The nicest thing he has done is ram a dummy in ollies mouth. Maybe it's a boy thing?!
Aww millie and amber sound adorable together! Kellie I think luke being so rough must be a boy thing, my brother is 2years older than me and apparently used to pull my hair throw things at me all sorts!! Girls seem to treat babies like their dollys haha! I'm sure he will come round to him and they will be the best of friends.
Slept Sooo much better lastnight, wren only woke twice to be fed and changed. I think it may just be coincidence but what we did was put a hot water bottle in her moses basket 10 mins before bedtime so it was warm for putting her in, then we kept it upstairs and put it in her moses basket while we changed/fed her so again when she was settled back down it was warm and cosy. May have just been coincidence but she slept like a log and didn't keep waking herself up by moving and twitching around. Thought I would mention it incase some of you want to try may be worth a go!!
Sarah- so pleased your HV was much better, she must have been having a very bad day last time, i think you are doing amazingly well Sarah considering your recovery has been so horrendous! x
Inoue- how was your night? Sorry to hear you are sore down there. Yay for your milk coming in though, hows the other boob doing? x
Kellie- thats fantastic about the bottles, glad Oliver is doing so much better on them. Luckily my sister has 3 children and didnt want anymore, but its still upsetting for her i think as the option of children will be taken away from her.
Oh dear about Luke and his brotherly love for Oliver! lol. I expect they'll have a lovely relationship as they get older and Oliver becomes more of a play friend, it must be a boy thing! x
Lauryn- lovely to hear that Amber is so good with Millie, thats very cute! x
Time- we tried that with the hot water bottle, and sticking her blanket in bed with us whilst she feeds so its nice and snug, it did work but now we are on our third night of growth spurt so nothing is working at the moment apart from feeding her! x
I really dont mind feeding her constantly but this 3 week one is hard, this is the third day and night now, my boobs are so sore, and i am like a zombie! I co slept with her last night, didnt even really attempt to put her back in her moses basket as she didnt settle enough to do it.
We have woken up to alot of snow, which is very exciting! Hopefully we'll be going to see father christmas later, it seems alot more christmassy in the snow!
Glad to hear wren slept well last night time, we've tried the hot water bottle but it doesn't seem to work so well for Flynn, however 3rd night of co sleeping went great last night, Flynn fed at 12 and 4 then woke at 7 and lee gave him a bottle if expressed so I could have some more sleep! It was so lovely snuggling with him but think I watched him more than I slept!
Ally sorry to hear Poppy's growth spurt party is still ongoing! Honestly how do you ladies with toddlers cope? I'm so impressed? Are you more used to the lack of sleep? Xx
Well Amber's STTN since 4 months old so I have no idea how I'm managing I suppose it just has to be done and I am loving bf'ing so it's all worth it. I can't wait for night feeds to be a thing of the past but I don't want to wish away these newborn/tiny baby stages because I know they pass far too quickly enough anyway without doing that!
Glad you had a better night with Flynn I have a couple of friends who co-sleep and they have much better rested babies and themselves for it.
It seems like Logan is going through a bit of a growth spurt as he's been hungry every couple of hours instead of the 4 hours he had been going between bottles. He's really grumpy at the moment bless him, spent most of last night screaming
When your co sleeping pops, what bedding are you using? I know that quilts are a no no as well as pillows. Logan seems to just want me nearby for comfort so am thinking about bringing him into bed with us for a couple of nights but I'm worried about getting too cold as its like 16 degrees at night in our room - even with the radiators on.
Sat at my second trial without catheter and it looks like the bloody thing is gonna be going back in for another week you get 3 pee's followed by a bladder scan after each then they make a decision as to weather to put it back in or not.
Managed to pass 350mls for the first attempt...but I'm still 250mls in retention really don't want the catheter back
Fingers crossed you dont need another catheter Sarah . Your having a hard time with this aint ya .
Glad everyone seems to be sleeping better, still pretty crappy for me but dvds are keeping me entertained. Ive been bathing my downstairs with warm salt water and it seems to be healing a litte each day, much relief. Cant believe Reimi was a week old y'day, sometimes it seems like ive had her alot longer
On a side note, Reimi hasnt pooped in about 36hours. Shes doing plenty of wee's and drinking milk like normal but no poopey . Can this be normal at this stage? Xx
