Haha! I have the mini pill, haven't started taking it yet! That's a good point! Lol. I got it the same time as antibiotics but they wanted me to finish those before taking! And I was on those so long I forgot! Best pop a few pills before rolling in the hay! Lol
Reimi is awake now and im rocking her in her bouncer, nice to see her with her eyes open! Although she's sleepy, she can tell if were not holding her so I think im in for a long night with her stuck to my chest! Lol.
Im mentally telling myself to do treadmill tomorrow as surely I cant do it while Reimi is being so demanding... . Thats my excuse and im sticking to it
Thank you contraception fairy! Lol. I was reading the info on the pills after i took one, and i'm not sure whether i want to take them when breastfeeding, they say a small amount passes through the milk, and that they have done tests on babies until they are 2 and a half with no ill effect, but what about after that? I think i might use condoms until i stop breastfeeding and then go back on the combi pill.
How was your night Inoue? Did she sleep ok? How is she doing today?
Poppy was so niggly and fussing yesterday evening and last night, think she is in the middle of this 11 week wonder week, she was the same Monday too, hope it doesnt last too long! OOOOOOOH AND she took a bottle last night!!!!! woohoo!!!!!!!! Thats the first time in a long time she has been willing to take one! She took about 100ml of expressed milk!!!! so happy!!!!!!! Even though she still wanted the boob after at least i can get her used to bottles as i have a child free wedding and a hen party to go to in March!
Great news that Poppy took a bottle Ally it took Millie some getting used to, she would just lick the test I think she gets annoyed at all the gulping she has to do and doesn't get as much milk out as she does on the boob, but it's nice OH can feed her on the odd occasion I'm not around.
It was lovely visiting our family, Amber loved seeing all of her big cousins and everyone adored Millie. We stayed with one of my sisters and everyone did all the nappy & clothing changes, winding and even bathing so I got a little break!
We haven't DTD yet either, although have fooled around! I keep meaning to go her my coil fitted but always forget or OH is running late home from work and I miss the clinic opening hours
Oh sweet!! 100ml of expressed in the bottle is awesome, good to know with that wedding coming up . Reimi slept like normal last night. 6 hours textbook again . She has been alot more alert today's since jabs, had a long nap in afternoon but I think I knackered her out playing with her in the morning . Shes now waiting for her fat milk (anti reflux) then hopefully she will go down by 10pm. Shes still very drooly but no other symptoms with it so guess its the very beginning of teething.
As far as I know (pretty sure im right), you can take the mini pill while BF but NOT the combined pill. If its playing on your mind then do as you say and just use condoms for now, im sure the risk is nealy the same with mini pill passing into breast milk as you getting pregnant while using condoms. Take your pick
The mini pill scares me... I know around 5 people from on here and RL who have been caught pregnant on it
Awww bless Poppy! That's probably why she's only just moving up to 0-3m clothing and my little chubba bubba will be in her 3-6m very shortly she just can't get enough!
Inoue, sounds like it could be the start of teething however bare in mind it can take months before any teeth actually pop through. Amber was a drooling mess for ages before anything decided to show! Millie's dribbling loads already too and chomping on her hands lots so I've already got my ambers out around her wrist to hopefully ease any discomfort.
Inoue- glad Reimi is sleeping again! Did she have a good night?
Lauryn- oh god thats scary!!!!! i think thats made up my mind to give the mini pill a miss!!!! We arent dtd at the moment, and the opportunities we have are few and far between so a 3 pack of condoms will probably last us until i give up breastfeeding at 6 months! lol
Clothes sizes are so strange, Poppy is 11lb 5 when last weighed, and she was still fitting into Asda outfits that said they were up to 9lb???!!!! And then shops like Tescos where their 0-3 go up to 15lb look small on her already? very strange!
How much milk do u give Millie when giving her a bottle? I really have no idea how much to give Pops.
Mind you i think i am going to have to stop giving her a bottle in the evening- i think it gives her wind, she ends up grunting and fidgeting with her final feed on me (lasts about 2 hrs!) and shes been waking alot for the last couple of nights we have given it to her, u can tell shes blooming uncomfortable! So i think i'll try giving it to her in the day or something.
Hey guys sorry I've not been on in so long I've only had Internet on my phone and can't work b and b on there!
Hope everyone's ok the weight loss sounds as thoughts going great!
Inoue, wren has been really dribbly too and my first thought was teething but I thought surely not at 8 weeks!!! We shall see!
What are the amber bracelets supposed to do lauryn? May have to invest!
Clothing sizes are so strange! Wrens is mainly still in newborn but we're slowly moving into 0-3.. However mothercare and next are massive!! Not very standard sizing! Wrens tiny baby mothercare clothes still fit!!! Mad!
Poppy might just need to get used to the bottle ally, wren for the first few weeks guzzled so much air in and was full of wind but she's a lot better now.
Awww how big is Wren? I had Millie weighed today and she's 13lbs 2oz, so not as big as I thought but she's doing great and following her usual centile perfectly. She's above 75th centile I find Next & H&M sizes to be accurate for Millie, Asda aren't too bad either. In think someone gave me some Tesco sleepsuits and they're far too small.
Ally, I left OH a 5 fl oz bottle of EBM last night when I went to my SW meet and she drunk the lot. He said she probably would have drunk more but once it was all gone she didn't cry and didn't bring any back up so it must have been the right amount to just fill her comfortably. Will probably leave a 6fl oz one next week and see how we get on. Are you trying her with a bottle every night? I'm too lazy to pump and sterilise for that
