Thank you Lauryn- I never had to worry about Izzy's weight but Poppy is a different matter, at the moment she is waking twice a night for feeding and I really don't mind I just want her to fatten up a bit!
Hows Millie doing after her jabs?

Inoue- it was so lovely seeing her, we hadn't seen her for a year, I had to take her back to the airport for 5 this morning, so sad to see her go, but lovely that she got to meet Poppy.

OMG happy 6 months Poppy!

Millie's still a bit grumbly, not feeding much during the day but then hungry at night! I'm still getting plenty of sleep though so not too bad x

Hello! How is everyone?

I am loving having two kids at the moment- so all those with one for now- I highly recommend it, yes its hard sometimes, but honestly the girls have made me cry with how loving they are towards each other!

Poppy has finally started taking a bottle! She'll only take it properly off of Dave but that's fine I don't mind!!!!! We are giving her one every day to get her used to it as I will need to find a little job soon (boo!) I have got so used to having the whole weekend as a family i'm going to find it hard to work Saturdays or something again!

Hehe im the opposite to ally! Luke still doesn't really care much for oliver, and only shows interest when oliver is holding his toyshop. He does kiss him goodnight which is cute though. I still struggle with the guilt of how luke doesnt get much attention as oliver is such a high needs baby and takes up pretty much my whole day. I still miss being able to do certain things like taking luke swimming as I cant manage both on my own but know things will change again soon. I love oliver soooooo much though, I dont want it to sound like I dont! Im hoping as he gets older the bond like poppy and izzy will develop. Lauryn, how do your girls get on?

We are in teething hell at the moment. Sleep is bad, naps are bad and lots of crying and head shaking. I have resorted to nurofen today to try and ease it for my poor little man, so far so good. Also going to order a amber anklet.

I just got oliver weighed and he is 22Ib 5 1/2oz. He is now just under the top centile so I have been told to cut his milk right down, water down what he does have, no night feeds and to force solids. I started weaning again a couple of weeks ago and he hates any solids, just blows raspberries at them and will only eat fruit puree. I have to go back in three weeks and if another gain someone has to do a home visit. So obviously im a bad mummy for making sure my child is fed just cant win x

My girls are inbetween what you have both described! Amber is very loving and there's no jealousy or anything like that, but she doesn't pay a lot of attention to Millie. Just the odd kiss and cuddle here and there. The older Millie gets, the more Amber is starting to notice her I have noticed though. Millie looks at her with absolute adoration all the time though Amber is the only one who can make her giggle without doing anything really!

Ally, that's good news! Millie still isn't taking bottles but I should really start trying her on them more often. I'm too lazy If no success, I think I will try her with milk from a beaker as she's fine drinking water from it.

Kelly, sorry they're giving you so much stick for Oliver's weight I don't understand how they can critisize and nag when we are told to feed on demand so stupid.

Kellie- would u take Luke and Oliver swimming at the weekend with Wes? Dave is taking Izzy on Saturday and I'm planning on taking poppy with a friend on Tuesday whilst Izzy is at school. When does luke start pre-school?
I can't believe the appalling advice you were given from the HV!
Poppy is refusing solids too at the moment, it must be the teething- once he has got a tooth or stops teething he might love the solids!

Lauryn- awww bless Millie! That's so sweet she loves her sister so much! I cant keep up with the pumping with the bottle (just cant find the time!) so we are now doing one bottle of formula, its a relief to know she will do it and can, I want to keep going with it everyday so she doesn't suddenly decide she won't entertain it again!

Aw I can't wait I have another! We're going to start trying at the end of the year :-) around a 2 year age gap

Kellie Oliver doesn't sound that heavy at all! A lot of the babies I know are pin his age are weighing in similar. Health visitors just scare everyone, just ignore them, you do such a great job with your boys

Day 5 of illness for us, my poor baby boy, he's now lost his voice! It's so unfair, basically he is acute bacterial conjunctivitis which comes with a cold and cough and all of that alongside teething xx
