Oh god Inoue, its approaching so fast, it must be so hard, at least your mum can have her, she will look after her so well.
4 month regression continuing here- i have also read that stranger anxiety is part of it too, which might explain why she wont go to anybody! She is up at least 3 times a night, and will go down at 7, but will wake up a couple of times before we go to bed and need rocking. And the daytime naps are horrendous! lucky if she gets 20 mins, and then she wakes up miserable! lol. Of course according to my step parents it doesnt exist (fb status) so this is all part of my imagination/rubbish parenting!
I dont want to speak too soon (touch wood touch wood) but my scar looks like its healing, and the seaweed dressings are working- it might even heal within a week or so!!!! fingers crossed!!!!
How is everyone? and babies? Poppy was 4 months yesterday, its going so fast!
Ladies just realised that the mammoth catch up post I wrote never sent!! Very annoying
Poppy start sleeping better for your mumma please! I'm dreading it, we've just had 2 good nights after a series of rubbish ones, but sure tonight will go back to normal. Down at 7, upstairs a couple of times to pop dummy back in but once he's really asleep it falls out and he doesn't stir. Woke at 4.30 Tuesday night, 3.30 last night, and then back down till 7. Key seems to be getting him back to sleep after feed without dummy, then although he's in a lighter sleep having done his biggest deep sleep of the night, he doesn't cry out for it and just grunts himself back to sleep
Question.. Now I'm formula feeding, any one know how much he should be taking? In 24 hours he's now taking about 33oz, last week was poorly and struggling to get him to take 24! Also changed to 3 month plus teats now I'm not BFing, which has helped with getting him to drink quicker
My god last night was the worst night yet! she was up every hour until 3- i then kept her in bed with me, so at least OH can get some sleep (not that he'd done much before that as i was feeding her), so i cat napped from 3 and she got up at 6. i'm now downstairs with both girls absolutely shattered whilst Dave is snoring in bed! poor thing he must be so tired!!!! grrrrr
i hope all u lovely mummies and gorgeous babies r well and u r managing to avoid the regression!
Pops, Reimi has about 42oz min of formula in a 24h period (6 x 7oz bottles). Im thinking of trying her on some baby rice in the upcoming weeks as she can easily polish off 50oz if had the chance. Flynn sounds good as he is, they tend to know what they want and how much they want .
Not much difference in Reimi's sleep (thank god!) she still sleeps 6-7hours every night with an occasional winge. Im keeping my fingers firmly crossed that she skips the regression!
So glad to hear your scar is healing a bit Scally! About bloody time!
Ive been taken off my contraceptive pill as I was suffering with daily migraines near the end of the pack, god I was so sick. Marc had to take time off work to look after Reimi as I couldn't get out of bed. Dr gave me 30/500mg of co-codamol which managed to shift it - phew! .
2 weeks and counting till work, had to pinch a size bigger scrubs as I couldnt move to easy in me pre-pregnancy ones! Lol. Embarrassing!! .
Glad Reimi is still sleeping well Inoue! Bless her, she sounds like she loves her milk!
Oh no to your migraines, good job u have come off the pill!
to work, glad you managed to get some bigger scrubs- you'll get back into the other ones, but give yourself time!
I dont want to say too much about Poppys sleep as i may jinx- but we've gone from that awful night, to waking up twice a night (which is fantastic) to last night was once- i am expecting it to get bad again- but its lovely to have a respite!
We have been away for the weekend- she was great in hotel, and christening, journey there (about 4 hrs) she screamed for about half hr total, on the way back it was about 2 and a half hours of it!!!!- very intense!!!!! I really am going to try and not travel anywhere for a while- hopefully in she'll be better by June when we go to Wales!
What are your babies up to? Poppy is crazy trying to walk at the moment- if u hold her or her hands she will walk- she is so desperate to chase after her big sister!!!!! She still wont take a bottle or dummy!
Yep. Reimi is a guzzler! . I tried her with baby rice today but she pulled a funny face, prob to early as of now but ill try again at a later date.
Reimi is mad on standing aswell scally, she just holds into our thumbs and stands stiff for ages. She also loves to be sat upright so no more laying reclined on her chair, shes sat on the sofa next to us. She seems very advanced for her age, but then I have nothing/no one to compare it with.
I could gush on here all night about her (proud in your face mummy here! ) but shes such a chubby little dot, could just squish up to her all day .
Seriously thinking number 2 may be on the cards in a couple of years. Never thought a 'one child only' person would say that
Awww bless Reimi she sounds gorgeous!!!!! Oooooh and baby number 2 in a couple of years thats great!!!!!! Glad those newborn days havent put you off! Yay for her for standing and sitting up!
Poppy does that with standing, she stands so stiff, you have to kind of bend her to sit down- she was sitting leaning onto me today and she was desperately trying to stand up again- it kills your arms after a while!
Flynns the same, loves to stand, chat, giggle.. But when he decides to scream boy is he loud!
Flynn had around 33-35oz a day, but will only take half a bottle at once, bit of a snacker. His night sleep is driving me crazy though! 7-2.30, then a feed, then he wakes at 4,30 and is awake on and off till 7 whining, so annoying!! Xxx
Be warned girls.... wonder week 19 sucks! Last night, 10.30-5, 19 weeks today and bam, down at 11 and awake every half a hour since 1am. I know this is ment to be the worst week but how are babies so precise?!
Oliver is taken around 54oz a day, weighed in yesterday at 18Ib 8 1/2oz. Has jumped 2 centiles up to the 91st so is being observed.
Does anyone else gave a baby who is constantly face bombing your shoulder and face?! The crazy side to side with mouth wide open trying to eat you!? Oh and the grip on your hair where they just wont let go?! X
