to be jonest the pick me up put me down thing wouldnt work right now for the same reason the CIO method wouldnt work. Our babies are still too young to understand. All they know right now is hunger wet and alone so they cry to have a need met. I personally would hokd off anything like tht u til 6-8 months when they can recognise the difference between distances ect.

Sarah When I pit Ben in the bath with me he just throws hkmself backwards and floats starfish style with a huge grin on his face haha we are yet to go to the pool because mirena is ruining that Thank you for the support I feel like a nutter gps tracking my kids haha but they are my world and I dont trust that psycho one inch xx

We thought Peter would love swimming for the same reason! lol He just stared off into the space with the clenched fists. BUT, he didn't cry, so at least he didn't hate it. We'll try again next week maybe.

I've never tried it because thankfully Peter is a great sleeper, but some of the other moms on the forum who have younger babies seemed to be having some luck with it, and you're not actually leaving them while they're upset, so it can't hurt to try it out.

Have your kids had their visit with your ex yet? (I can't remember when it is...) I hope having the phone will make them (and you!) feel a bit better about it all. I hope you didn't feel like I was judging you when I said I wouldn't let Peter have one till he was in highschool. I was mostly kidding, and you certainly have an important reason for wanting Connie to have one!

Sarah L I didn't think that at all but I felt like it left it open for others to judge if you know what I mean, so I felt the need to explain myself. Under normal circumstances I wouldn't have brought her a phone until she started to go out with friends alone so that if she was in trouble or needed me I was available to her.

So funny with all these swimming babies just staring off, I'm pretty sure Ben is going to do the same, enjoy the relaxing pool trips now though, when they get older like my 2 you have to spend the hour chasing them around the pool and they can move fast even in armbands :P!!

The pick up put down method looks useful if it works, like you say there is no harm in trying it and see how it goes, Peter is a good sleeper anyway isn't he? xx

AFM.... A lady who I know from school was texting me yesterday about cloth nappies and she was very negative about it all, saying how they are a rip off and it's better to use throw aways, now she wants me to show her how to use them, I sent her some links to preloved sites and fb pages but I'm not looking forward to showing her because I know while I'm showing her she'll just shit all over it (excuse the pun!).
She's the kind of mum, that if your kid is doing something, her kid done it first and better. It winds me up lol, because we can all say with pride things about our children, for example our babies rolling was a big milestone but you would never say omg your baby hasn't rolled yet??!! Alfie rolled when he was 2 months old!! you wouldn't do that because it strikes fear into the other parent that their kid is behind or that her kid is better, I told her about Ben's first laugh at 2 months, she told me Isabelle laughed when she was a week old, I told her Ben might have chicken pox (when we went to hospital that time) She told me Alfie had it when he was a few days old. I'm pretty sure one of her kids walked out of her vagina reciting poems LOL. Oh help!!

"Wade out of the vagina reciting poems" everyone knows someone like that, all of the idiots!!! That's great that she's open to using cloth though

I'm currently in the middle of an admin nightmare trying to sort out venues for cloth nappy meetings, stuff to advertise in the press etc in our area, and now we are dividing up all the baby events between us over the next few months so lots of cloth stuff going on, and I'm so excited also have all the nappy library nappies prewashed and shall be testing them tomorrow hehe! My mind knows they aren't mine to use, but I see them and I go "YAY NAPPIES!!!”
Oh my brother and I got into a heated discussion last night as he said that cloth nappies are no better for the environment. I almost fainted with the exertion and anger going into my responses. Tbh I don't care about other people not using cloth for the environmental aspect, it doesn't bother me, each to their own, but don't say it isn't better when it is! And he didnt believe my facts I quoted, which really annoyed me!

Sarah, sounds like Peter and Izzy should go swimming together - the underwhelmed pair of the century!

Sarah and Sarah: We've taken Jackson to the pool a few times and he sounds like he'd fit in great with Peter and Izzy. He'll have his swimsuit on and I'll be guiding him around quite proudly and he'll just be staring at nothing with closed fists and his little hat hiding him from the sun. Completely under-enthused about the entire situation when I am obviously OVER THE MOON that I'm taking my baby swimming.

Candy: I'm sorry to hear about your BF troubles with Benny and all of the crazy stuff with the squirting poo and yellow poo and well, poo in general. Jackson has has some mucousy looking poo, not unordinary in color though and the ped told me that if he's drooling as much as I say he is, its probably due to all of the excess saliva he's swallowing. That might be part of the reason you have mucousy poo, too! But I believe that you are doing the right things for Ben. You know if his tummy is upset and you know when things just aren't right, plus your health is being affected by it all and that's just not cool. I hope you get your new formula so your house stops smelling like cheese!

Steph: I know I haven't posted in here for a while, but I've been following along and I'm so sorry that Rob is "neglecting" Grayson when he could be picking him up from your dad's. I feel like WE shouldn't have to tell them "Hey, since you're not doing anything, why don't you go grab the baby?", but we always do. I got into it with Greg the other day because yes, I am a SAHM, but I have my horses here so I'm out with them at different times of the day as well. I'm pretty busy with the two boys and rarely do I go anywhere with friends that is longer than two hours and before the boys are in bed..(anyways) Greg wanted to go to a friends party - this friend was celebrating his recent break up from his wife (which he SHOULD be celebrating, mind you, this girl was a FAT COW), but Greg had just been out the weekend before. He leaves from his job at 2PM and is gone until 9-12 at night. I fought with him about going down to Matt's since he'd gone out the week before and he gave me the "Well I have long weeks at work and I DESERVE..." The "I deserve" gets me every time! When you are a husband and a father of two small boys, all of your DESERVES go out the window, mister! No one deserves anything anymore, no matter how much or how little you work or whether you get to go to your friends house every weekend. He's not 18 anymore and his family should ALWAYS come first, especially when he knows I'm home with the kids all week. Its not easy managing my time either, buddy! He ended up apologizing and staying home, but I think the apology was more of a band-aid so I haven't given much thought to actually forgiving it. Men..

Shell: I hope you guys are doing well. I think of you every day and hope that your money saving tricks are working. The last of my extra money went on my CD's to help me save more money!

AFM: The boys are good! Jake is teething so badly he's given himself a callous on one of his fingers where he chews! I've found this solution made by Boiron called Camilia and it really seems to soothe him and gets rid of a lot of the drool for a little while. It comes in pre-dose liquid filled capsule type things and he seems to really like the taste. He opens his little bird mouth and lets me put the drops in He goes in for his 4 month well baby exam tomorrow so we'll see where we are and how we're doing. He's been a funny pooper the past couple of days, pooping 3 times one day and none the next, then three times two days in a row and none the next. Silly munchkin Liam just got a big boy bed and has been sleeping in it all night! We didn't bother putting the frame down since I KNOW FOR SURE that toys will just end up under there, so we're going to put some L brackets on the head board to hold it in place since its oak and a bookcase. No need for a 3 year old to climb up there and get tackled by a giant piece of wood. I hope everyone else is doing well! xx

Thread has been pretty quiet around here lately.......

Sam, Oh poor Jackson... Emme has been chewing and chewing and then when she fell sick this week I noticed her gums are really red and swollen. I hope his amber bracelet you bought him helps out!

Candy how is Benson doing on his formula???

Sarah I hope you are having lots of fun with all you CD meetings and events!

Afm, I dunno what is going on with Emmaleigh anymore and I frankly have given in to just holding her all the time and letting her just scream out whatever in the hell is going on....I can't say that having a baby has honestly helped our marriage out either at this point but with the financial problems also I feel like just throwing in the towel sometimes. Emme has been sick from her shots and is kinda back to feeling better today. I hope all you ladies and LOs are doing well. I have tried to keep up on Facebook but I have even fell behind there.

hang in there Shell my love! You and Allen have been through touh times I know you can get over this jurdle too! Its such a short period of time before they get old enouh to voice their issues and ask fo help. This screaming unsettled stage wont last forever and then things will be smoother.

Thank you for asking about BenBen. He is back on the booby for now we are waiting for a new formula called neocate because he wouldnt drink nutramigen. His poo is back to yellow but still full of mucus and slime. Im having a hard time from health visitors and drs around here because I made the choice to stop bfing even though it was on advice from a nurse none of the other parties can agree well I say fuck them breast is not always best and Benson is now fully vaxed for the year so if I decide to go on the formula then that is MY choice as a mother and they can all eat shit. Sorry went off on a little rant there!! haha

WE MIHT HAVE A HOUSE!!! yay!! we went to view it and it is gorgeous and big so much nicer than my flat. It needs some love and care but it has great potential! Lucas come home and started packing his bags haha. If we get it we can move in early next month. Im so excited. The kids will have a garden and I will have a dining room so I can have people over for dinner and we are planning a special housewarming kids halloween party for the kids and their friends as my friends are mainly the parents of my.kids friends lol Im so excited! Fingers crossed we get it!! xx

Oh Poor Benny and his tummy! I don't see why they are giving you so much trouble since it is obviously so difficult for his tummy and you. I hope that the new formula works out great for him and all things get better!

YAYAYAYAYYAYAYAY for you getting a new house! We bought our house and remodeled it and it is perfect for us! and how cute of Lucas to pack his bags and move right in lol!!!!!!!!!

Emme's a good baby but here lately she just screams and cries until she is so tired that she will suck her thumb and fall right to sleep. I am not sure what is going on.
Thanks girl! I know we have weathered some big storms in our relationship....hopefully this will pass too.
