Sarah I forgot to say that the CD group sounds amazing! I wish we had that down here! maybe the jabs mess up the sleep Aaron has become less hands on too its annoying because Im often alone with three kids xx
Im just thankful Benson wasn't a twin!! haha omg I would be dead by now!!
Sarah thank you thank you thank you for that link!!! I found their fb page and requested to join their group. Aaron thinks IBe lost the plot because I was so happy to find mums like me round here! yay!
I just hage to share this quickly also... the tiny thing that I love dearly about my baby... the way he waves his feet up and down happily while I'm breastfeeding him melts my heart!
Candy, your not alone with not STTN. We only had one night where Grayson slept for 5 hours and I think it was a fluke .
Your CD group sounds awesome . I wish we had more people CD here... I'm still the Lone Ranger lol. My whole family refuses
Let us know how it goes!
Sarah at staring Isabelle to sleep!! Poor baby probably even thought she had a chance lol. Hopefully you both will start to feel better really soon.
As for Simon, have you told him? Im sure he figures, that you just don't need (or want) him to take her?! But, don't feel bad... I always get up with Grayson after getting up with him all night. Even on weekends . But... I have never said anything to Rob, so I can't really be mad... I just wish he would think to offer!
AFM, Grayson had been REALLY stuffy all day. So much so, that I pinch my boob when feeding him (in fear that I will suffocate the poor child while he is eating ).
I tried the whole steam shower, but it didn't help
I also realized, that there are tons of CD raffles in the US. I had no idea, how many different manufacturers (or moms at home) there are. You always hear about the popular ones, but there are some really cute other brands. I've been busy filling out all the online forms, in hopes of winning . I hope my email has a strong spam filter
Nope Steph, like you, I've not mentioned that I want Simon to help - I also jut wish hed think to offer!
So my poor snuffly baby was snotty and snuffly all night. BUT she definitely slept well anyway. She was stirring at 3 and 6 but didn't wake. Since I was awake anyway due to her pervert style heavy breathing, I fed her while she slept. Then from 6 onwards she was in bed with me attached to me boob for an hour just sucking. I can just hear her stirring upstairs now. Must boob her ASAP...
Sarah J at boobing her without her asking! I do the same.
I hope she feels better soon. Grayson slept really well ... Even though he was breathing like a chu chu train all night. He slept 5 hrs followed by 4 . Of course I woke up with a very angry worker boob
Hi ladies! Figured I'd try and stop in for a few minutes this morning and catch up a bit.
Sarah J and Steph: I'm sorry your babes have the snuffles! I'm crossing my fingers and toes that Jackson stays out of the sniffles until I can give him some of our homeopathic cough/cold medicine which our ped doesn't "recommend" until, at the earliest, 3 months. Even though its homeopathic it really seems to help with respiratory things and we still use it for Liam even at 3 years old Breast feeding is also well known to help with such things, so keep boobing your babies girls!
Candy: That's so exciting that you've found some ladies that are local I love all of my momma friends, but so many just aren't down with the super natural parent stuff They think "hell, why don't you just leave him with some bottles" and I'm of the mindset that I'd always love to BF him. I'm very into spending time with my kids because they're going to be some of my best friends when they get older. I want to know them inside and out.
AFM: My cousin that has been estranged for close to 10 years found me on FB yesterday and just messaged me like nothing had ever happened. I was a big taken aback I've attempted to contact her a few times and I know she's received my messages and she's never replied, then yesterday I get a message to the tune of "Congrats on baby #2 and Happy Birthday, Sam! Hope you're well, blah blah blah". I'm not really sure what to do. She was like a sister to me for a very long time and then some crazy stuff happened, she decided I did some things that she didn't like (even though it was all gossip and I hadn't done anything) and she stopped talking to me for 10 years.. I still love her, she's family, but I don't know what she wants..I'm a bit unnerved by the sudden communication. In other news, Jackson slept from 9pm-7am, then was down again from 8-11am, then again from 2-6pm and then in bed again by 10pm yesterday. I feel like I'm being deprived of awake time and that with all of the sleep he's getting, I'm going to have to get a lot smarter. They say sleep is when the brain is truly developing and if that's the case, I'm in for trouble.
Sam, enjoy Jakes sleeping! I'm sure there will be days, where you miss it. I wonder if he may be going through a growth spurt again?!?
As for your cousin... What a weirdo!!! Do you plan to answer and keep up with her? I really hate, when people disappear and then expect things to be normal (like nothing ever happened). How are you doing with CD? Are you full time? I still only get to do it when I'm home from work and on weekends. Plus I still use disposables at night (I just like the fact, that I don't have to change him at night... If I had him in cloth, I would have to change at least once)
Steph I've stopped changing izzy at night. i had gone down to just one change a night (time depended on when she went down and when she woke up, but troed to get t halfway through the night if possible) then decided i would see how we went with no changes. last night we went from 8.30pm-7.45am on one nappy, no leaks! Since she's unwell I didn't want to upset her last night to even check for leaks. Night before I tried out a new night nappy and it did leak - go figure.
Sam: I would be unnerved by that too, why now? Maybe she just thought that bday and Jake combo was a good time to ease in, with something pretty general to say to start off?
And I am so jealous of Jakes sleep lol! Is it maybe the heat? Genius kid coming your way! (Obviously all the April munchkins will be geniuses! And gorgeous too!)
I feel so sorry for her, she is just miserable we've raised her crib at one end to see if that helps ease her congestion as she seems worse when lying flat, but I don't want to raise it too much just in case...of what I'm not sure, but just I'm case
Poor wee mite just wants to be cuddled and boobed. This I have no problem with, but she does need to sleep and is pretty much refusing to go down unless I'm cuddling her. Since I'm also sick, and exhausted, that isn't gonna work overnight!
Oh just kidding, some vigorous tummy patting seems to have done the trick....for the next few minutes at least. Poor pup. I shall just sit on our bed next to her crib and creepily watch her, whilst coveting cloth that Simon will never let me buy!
Oh, this is really random, but I love having about of gossip as I never have any.
My dad owns a company and a woman has been his "right hand woman" for 17 years.she came to all our weddings, bought presents for Jacob and Isabelle when born. She's always been a bit strange, but very kind and very involved in her church etc. well my mum phoned me two days ago to say she is in prison. I literally couldn't believe it!
She had told my dad that she had stolen £3000 from her cousin by fiddling his accounts which she took care of, but that guilt got her and she owned up, and he had her arrested. She got a year in jail, so we were all thinking that's a bit harsh for a first offence, she said she'd pay it back, and she had used it to pay for her dad's funeral and expenses for caring for her mum who is sick. my dad wrote a character reference for her...
Turns out she stole £170,000 over 13 years and was found out by her cousin, denied it, so he had her arrested. A very different story! She also actually spent the money on paying for friends to go on holiday with her, and stay in a hotel that was £1000 a night!
My dad is so angry that she lied to him, understandably, and the whole thing is just insane. Our business only employs 10 people, and she has been there so long it is just such a shock, but has given us all a good bit of chat round the dinner table! Just shows...you never can tell...
