Aww yay happy 4 months ollie!cannot believe it has been that long already! Scary
Wrens the same with naps now half an hour in the morning is about normal now but I think that's how it is when they are more alert and less sleepy and want to start doing/seeing more!
I'm at work with wren so it's tough with her being awake most of the day but she is luckily a very happy baby so is happy to be on her playmate or in the bjorn!

She seems to be a little better finally after her injections.. It was awful seeing her upset
We've alsochanged her milk back to cow and gate as we briefly switched to sma which really didn't agree with her.what are you all using?

Hope you got some good news re the scar ally x

I dont mind the shorter naps if only she was happy enough with that! lol, but she wakes up and is still miserable! Poppy used to be content to sit in her chair etc, but not over the last few days, plus she has started waking about 4 times a night- think we have hit the 4 month sleep regression!

So saw the nurse yesterday who took another swab- in the hope it shows up something...it at least gives us a clue how to treat it and what the liquid coming out is.
I am now wearing seaweed bandages, and the skin is getting sore, and i'm to try some new bandages out as soon as they come in- apparently they fight all infections including mrsa. If those two bandages dont make it better in the next week or two our next plan/last resort is a vaccuum bandage- it is huge and sucks the stuff out of the wound, i have to wear the motor in my pocket. If this works then the holes will either close or can be stitched up.

Sorry its so long winded!

Think my heads going to blow up Scally, what an overload of information! . Lets hope these bandages work, but that vacuum thing sounds quite good. It should of been used from the get go really.

Reimi is still on her aptimil first milk then an anti reflux version for night times, think cow and gate is the same company, good milk .

Reimi sleeps quite well during the day, about 30 mins in the morning then about 2h in the afternoon - how long that will go on for, im not sure!

Sorry to hear some of the babies are cutting down their day time naps no advice unfortunately, seems like they're getting plenty of sleep during the night so not sure what to suggest? Millie still has around 2 x 2hr naps during the day and will doze here and there, but she doesn't go down until around 10-11pm at night.

Time, I think SMA disagrees with a lot of babies, something about the proteins in it (I think there's more than the other brands or something) and it can cause tummy upset. We used aptamil with Amber and never had any problems with it. I hear lots of good things about C&G too, I think they are the 2 most popular brands.

Ally you poor thing I have everything crossed that this bandage will do the trick but the vacuum one sounds good if things with this one don't work out.

Millie's tooth on the top, left side next to her front (if this makes sense!?) is starting to break through already! These babes are growing far too quickly can't believe Ollie's 4 months already!

Hey inoue! I do hope these bandages work, I think she is reluctant to try the vacuum one as it can affect day to day living, and it could make the holes bigger to get everything out, but at this point I just want it out and done! Poppy used to nap like Reimi! Now she'll wake up every 10 mins and I pretty much have to rock moses basket constantly! Lol, if the sleep regression stays like this I think we'll be able to handle it! Just don't want it to last too long! She's also wanting to feed loads too!
I hope she chills out a little before next weekend as we r going to my sister in laws little boy's christening in gloucester! I'm nervous about the 4 hour journey as she tends to scream in the car! And we r staying in a hotel- all of us in one room- not what u need if she is waking up numerous times a night! Plus me and dave r godparents so need to stand at the front! She won't go to other people so I'll be holding her but I hope she's happy!

Lauryn- bless Millie with her tooth- its so scary to think they r teething etc, didn't seem too long ago we brought them home!
I think Poppy is teething, the drool is insane! She is really biting down on everything!

Will your babies go to other people? Poppy will cry if she goes to anyone else! Only one of my friends she is content on! X

Millie's not too bad, but she won't sit for too long with others. Mind you, she's the same with me she gets bored easily and needs entertaining constantly. She tries to sit up all the time and do things she blatantly can't do and she just gets frustrated and cries! Even her jumperoo she'll only sit in for 3-5mins before she's fed up Amber loved it so much, hoping this is just a phase and that she'll grow more interested and content when she's able to do more for herself.

Wren is the same with most friends and family she just wants to be constantly moving and sat upright so it's difficult when people don't hold her right but they obviously don't know!

She also used tolove her swing, bouncy chair etc but now just gets bored after 10 mins max

Thatsounds positive about the bandages ally,fingers crossed

Hope you all had a lovely mothers day

Had a lovely 1st mothers day (made Marc go out and buy me a card ). Hope you all had a lovely day too.

Work contacted me last week about going back to do my KIT day (keep in touch days) which ive agree'd to do so i go back to work on 3rd April . I cant even put into words how i feel about me leaving my little girl, even though i know she will be safe with my mum and its only 2 days a week, its just not the same from me being there for her. Its really churning me up inside. I just keep saying "I will only work for another 3 years then we will either TTC again OR we will be in a better position financially to just be a SAHM for Reimi ~ get work over with now before Reimi attends school".....

Hard, hard, hard

xx
