Scar is doing ok, i think the hole has closed again.
Poppy went back to normal last night, with a little more feeding- she was asleep by 9 (we both were!) and then she woke at 11 for a feed, then slept until 6.30.
Shes needing lots of rocking in her moses basket today, i have been sat down for 2 hrs doing it constantly, if i stop she wakes up! She is bunged up though so i'll let her off, and it means i get to sit down! x
Aww but 11 til 6.30 is still fab! Glad the scarves seems to be healing!
Lastnight was even worse than the night before..we didn't get chance to move the cot base up or put some lamp in her room lastnight so she stayed in our room in her carrycot, she woke at 11,1,3,5 and up at 7.30. All I can think is that she is having a growth spurt and/or hitting the 11/12 week wonder week. She isn't just waking to be naughty she drinks a whole bottle each time and then is straight back off to sleep.we thought it might be her being cold because she won't keeper blankets on solution her in a sleeping bag lastnight but evidently that isn't the problem!
We may try her in her cot tonight and see if that helps!
Wow Ally, a 12hr sleep!? She must have been starving when she woke, and I bet your boobs were huge the longest Millie has gone down was around 6-7hrs I think and I was actually willing her to wake up just to feed I get anxious if she sleeps for too long, plus I don't want my AF coming back yet either!
Well Millie is officially in 3-6m clothes now, all of her 0-3 is packed up except some vests that still fit fine. Why must they grow up so quickly!?
Sorry you had a rough night time, hopefully that was just a growth spurt. I try not to get too comfortable with any kind of routine Millie puts herself in as I just know babies like to lure us into a false sense of security
Hey Lauryn!!!! I must admit i was begging for her to wake to help my boobs!
Awww bless her being in her 3-6 clothes now, i have started getting Poppy's out some of them look huge others look the same size as her 0-3 ones. They are growing so fast!
Hope you had a better night Time, does sound like a growth spurt!
Pops has now got Izzy's cold, i have been up since 3 with her, she is trying to sleep but is so bunged up, she keeps waking and crying- she slept on me upright which helped a bit. She was so full of it this morning but just keeps on smiling, bless her!
I am going to try and make an app with the nurse for the scar today, its looking a bit yellow again!
What makes your LO's laugh? Poppy is very ticklish, and laughs alot with me, but as soon as i try and show Dave she only looks slightly amused! I took her in to my old boss last week, and all he did was say hello and she was in hysterics! Everytime he spoke she laughed!!!!! She laughs sometimes when i do, or when i am singing to her (my voice is that bad!)
Not good to hear about poppys cold, nice to know she can still smile for you though . Hope you get an appt to see someone about your scar, it was finally all clearing up, dont want to go back 2 steps! .
So cute about what makes our LO laugh. Reimi likes me singing or talking in a high tone, I usually say "where's mummy, where's mummy gone?" and she beeming and cooing away, lol. She's the same with me and Marc
Had/having an AWFUL night with her tonight. Reimi is constantly sucking/chewing her fingers and wont sleep! Been up literally every half hour to try and put in dummy when I prise her hand away. Its not hunger and cant just be 'exploration' as she's not benefiting anymore than I am with no sleep. Its gone from 7-8 hours a night to zero . Any ideas/suggestions?
Could be the start of teething inoue, or hunger or just a comfort thing. May have just been a bad night!!
Fingers crossed our terrible night was just a growth spurt as she has been back to her normal self ever since, only getting up once! Phew! As I'm working and don't do well with no sleep!
Wrens is a very happy baby and smiles at Anything haha but we haven't had a proper laugh yet, just sort of a breathing in laughing and cooing.. She also has a little fake cough going on haha!! Growing up so fast its scary!!
Wrens is starting to fill out her 0-3m clothes and I don't have many in 3-6, I went mad on the 6-9m dresses and rompers for summer! So some shopping may be in order!
Hope the scar is getting better ally you poor thing and the babies are feeling better.
The clothes sizes r so bizarre, Poppy is really filling out her 0-3's, and most r very short for her! Will be moving onto 3-6 shortly I think!
Inoue- Bless Reimi, could be teething, growth spurt, just one of those nights, they like to keep us on our toes! Hope she is better tonight!
Time- glad Wren is back to normal with her nights!
The scar is definitely infected again, I'm now on more antibiotics and have had a swab done. But on the positive note I already had a hole there for the yucky stuff to come out of as it hadn't healed fully so at least it doesn't have to try and get out of a big scar, plus so far only one hole has opened up, fingers cross, touch wood!
Hi guys! Sorry to hear about the bad sleeping, not cool babies!
Flynn is regularly doing 10-7, every night this week in fact! It also means that we have a morning routine in place which is helping. But next week I'm going to try tackling evenings as he's awake all evening and is exhausted and literally crying for sleep but fights it, his little eyes go all red poor bubba. Think the problem may be bathing him in his little bath in the kitchen and feeding him in the lounge, too much to look at. So from Monday I'm going up bath him in the big bath and feed him in our bedroom which he must recognise as bedtime as goes down no problem every evening ( he's still in his sleepyhead pillow in a travel cot so will probably stay in our room until 4 months now I think)
I really miss my evenings and lee and I don't seem to have any time together, I can't wait for him to be sleeping 7-7 with a dream feed, he's almost there, just needs the evening sleep! He is starving come morning though and feeds every 2 hours pretty much from 7 as making up for it!!
Im now using baby teething gel just before bed and she slept for 7 hours! Yay! .
Good to see you have a routine in place pops . Reimi is bed at 10pm and awake at 5:45am, pretty much happens every night. Me and Marc were saying yesterday how little time we actually spend together now, no cuddles or snuggles when in bed, its a shame really . Guess we can take comfort in that were not alone.
