Inoue- Tokyo sounds like a wonderful idea, nice to think about it now, good luck with work, i really hope it goes ok!

pops- ooooh to Florida!!!!! Does Flynn take a dummy? they are great for take off and landing- either that or feeding. Thats great about Flynns weight, the feeding sounds like what i had to do with Pops- they are so distracted and she was eating hardly anything so i was having to force her on the boob every hour! She now takes a good feed, and goes 4 hours generally between them. Glad his sleep is getting better!!!!

Poppy's sleep at night seems to be getting better- she is still taking ages to settle though and the daytime naps are appalling! Yesterday she slept for a grand total of 30 mins until about 4- then she slept for about 2 hrs!

She used to love the bath and now screams in it! Hoping its just a phase! Has anyone else's baby done this? Izzy did have a phase but she was alot older.

I am hoping to get Poppy weighed this week, i went last week to the clicky group and hv was so late they didnt get round to me, so this week i'm going to a clinic thats further away from me but hopefully will get it done! I have been doing it on the wii but thats not very accurate!

Hope everyone is well, enjoying seeing pics of all the gorgeous babies on fb xx

I wondered when your Florida holiday was pops, 3 weeks!! Wow thats come along quick . How long are you staying for? Just looked on Google and saw its a 8-9h flight! Cant wait to hear how you got on, the flight is the main/only worry of mine. Sounds fab regardless!

Were going to try a new hotel in Tokyo and go to Shinjuku district, right in the center of the hussle and bussel, it will either pay off or it wont, lol. Think ill have to get a lightweight stoller to use on the crowded streets and shops. Its mental as its 3 years away (apr 2016) but im really looking forward to just getting away. Scally, with a child already, is there a mass difference in behavior etc between a 2.5yo and a 3.5yo??

Glad babies are measuring ok, there all loved so much that there bound to be good .

Reimi has managed to suck her thumb now and is happily grabbing her feet when on changing mat, very cute! Lol.

Must be awful with LO hating bath times, Reimi loves it and always manages to splash us then do a beaming smile little butter wouldn't melt, such a little monkey.

She also managed to half half a bowl of aptimil porridge yesterday and she was cooing for more when loading up the spoon, so sweet! . Still only on bottles but thought id give a little bit of food ago . Anyone elce tried sloppy food yet?

Xx

Sorry Poppy no longer likes the bath Ally is it every time? Millie loves hers but if she's overly tired, she will entertain the idea for a minute and will then scream so I have to quickly wash her down and then take her out!

Eeeek Florida will be amazing pops! I second what ally said re dummies or feeding for lift off and landing. The sucking helps prevent their ears popping the last thing you need on a long flight is him suffering with earache so definitely give it a try.

No weaning here, too early for us and I don't think Millie is ready yet. We had her weighed at group last week when she was exactly 4 months and she weighed 16lbs 3oz! Little chunk her 3-6m clothes are fast becoming too small so I'm now stocking up on 6-9m things. I didn't think she'd need them so soon so stupidly hadn't bought anything in those sizes yet she's got a little cough at the minute that she's caught from Amber, who was really unwell all of last week. Drs have said it was a viral infection, she seems over the worst thankfully. Millie is nowhere near as poorly and I'm thankful to the booby milk for that I think because this virus completely wiped Amber out for 8 days, my poor girl

Hope everyone's well I don't get on as much as I'd like but I do catch up when I can and love seeing everyone's updates on FB x

Inoue- Honestly the behaviour between 2 and a half and three is a hell of alot! I would wait until 3 ish- could be handy aswell with potty training etc- as at 3 they are well and truly able to hold it etc but at 2 and a half not so much- we trained izzy at 2 and a half and would have hated to worry about a flight. Also at 3 she was more into films etc, so thats handy for a flight. Lightweight buggy is a great idea even at 3 if u are walking lots- just look out for weight limits on the buggies. Also a fun thing for them at that age is you can get the little v tech cameras- great for an exciting holiday like that (sorry i have got carried away!) Thinking of 2016 seems so far away! but it'll come round soon enough- i'm having to book Poppys sessions at pre school already for Jan 2016 as they are getting booked up!!!!! crazy!!!!

Aw bless Reimi grabbing her feet and sucking her thumb, thats very cute! Poppy used to love the bath and give us big smiles, i am hoping it'll go back to that soon! and bless her with the porridge- i love it when they coo! We havent tried Poppy with food yet, i'm so looking forward to doing it, but i dont think shes ready yet, she does watch us munch though! and she was desperately trying to get Izzys penguin bar the other day, Izzy was holding it a bit close to her and Poppy was aiming towards it with her mouth open! luckily i grabbed it in time!!! hahaha!

Lauryn- hey!!!!!!!!!! how are you??
The bath thing with Poppy has been for the last 3 nights- maybe i should try and move it earlier- it could be that shes too tired- i will have a go and let u know! Thats a lovely weight, i bet you werent planned with 6-9, i think i would panic slightly!!! We have some given to us for presents etc in that size but its things like vests etc that u dont tend to get in!
Poor Millie and Amber with their coughs, that happened with us too Izzy was really poorly and needed antibiotics, Poppy caught the same thing but definitely didnt get it as bad thankfully! Hope they both feel 100 percent soon x

With the weaning- i'm worried that Poppy wont be up for it at all when she gets to 6 months- at the moment she is able to suck a bottle but spits the milk out that comes out!! We tried giving her calpol the other day and she spat it all out!!! I am wondering if she will be the same with weaning, or will she get more ready for it? Or as we are doing BLW will she be more open to putting it in her mouth?

She is sooooooo tired today....i heard that when they get to the end of the regression they sleep lots...i am hoping that is now!!!! She is needing rocking to sleep which i dont mind, but she is sleeping in her cot today!!!!! And having lots of naps!!!!

Yeh defo try moving bath time a little earlier or it could just be a little phase that hopefully she'll be out of soon. Sorry I haven't got more advice!

I think you'll be fine if doing BLW because its all about her experimenting foods and exploring with her hands, different textures and feels etc. I tell a lie actually - on Saturday we had some cucumber and carrot batons and Millie was watching us eat like a hawk! I held out a piece of cucumber to her and she took it and began chomping down on it! She didn't eat any though but she definitely seemed to be enjoying it, probably more so for the coolness against her gums! I think towards the end of this month/beginning of May I'll start giving her hand held/finger foods of whatever we are eating and see how she gets on but I'm not in any rush to wean really.

That's good to hear that Poppy wasn't anywhere near as poorly as Izzy (obvs not for Izzty, bless her) but it gives me hope Millie won't be as ill as Amber has been. She came down with a fever a week ago on Friday and she's still not 100% now, although its just a cough and runny nose that she has now. I don't think she's been as poorly before Millie doesn't seem any worse than she did last night so I'm hopeful she'll be back to normal soon x

Cheers Scally . I thought it would be best till 3.5yo so she can understand dvd's and do the things you say, cant wait! .

Millie sounds like she's doing well! 16lb, gorgeous little chunk . Cute to hear about cucumber aswell, better than a penguin bar! .

Hope both your LO's get better soon, touch wood weve had anything here yet. Must be awful to see your LO uncomfortable .

Xx

It is a long flight, Flynn loves his dummy thank god!

Ally Flynn hated his bath for no reason a couple of weeks ago having loved it, so sad, but he's ok again now. Just eased him back in gently after having a couple of baths with him and singing to him lots :-)

Flynns starting to show more interest in food and keeps poking at mine. I'm going to start with a little bit of baby rice week after next and then start giving some finger foods and maybe a bit of puréed stuff while we're away as we have the time to experiment and as its so hot can strip Flynn down and let him make loads of mess xxx

Good luck today at work inoue, I hope it all goes ok. Well done on thinking so positive of it, the experiences you can give reimi by taking her to tokyo are amazing.

Pops, so jealous of florida! Hooe you have a brilliant time and that flynn is good on the plane!

Lauryn, poor amber. I hope she gets well really soon. This winter needs to leave along with all the illnesses going round.

Ally, looking forward to our long long walk tomorrow

I have delayed weaning now until 6 months. Although oliver was loving food, a week later after only giving a couple of spoons a day he started getting black flecks in his poo. Apparently it can be digested blood from the gut which scared me so im waiting it out. Luke never got this at weaning at 4 months, but im not taking any chances. Still going through 2 tubs of c&g a week so getting plenty of milk to fill his big belly
Sleep for us is pretty crap at the moment, waking every 15 minutes last night just to slam his legs down in his crib. Its definitely time to move into his own room, im ordering a new mattress today and will make the move monday when he is 5 months x

Good luck at work Inoue! We'll all be thinking of you, just keep thinking Tokyo!

Yay for our long walk tomorrow, think we'll walk the quieter road way which is 2.3 miles there!
Sorry to hear about your sleep! Sounds like time for his own room! X
