Sorry you had a tough night Laura, hopefully Alex will get better soon. Like the girls have said, maybe try and cut out certain foods for a few days to see if you can eliminate something?
Karen, Dylan seems very chilled! Touch wood!!
James is being a wee ratbag. After sleeping so well the night before last, he was a bit grumbly yesterday, my mum took him out in her massive silver cross pram for a couple of hours, brought him back about half four and he's been a grump ever since! Not sure if he's having a wee growth spurt but he's taken to feeding every 2-3 hours and today, he's not happy sleeping and won't go any longer than 10mins unless he's on my chest! Xx
Where is everyone? Was at docs this morning for my 6 week check which went well. Not decided on any contraception at the moment. Got some cream and drops for my sore eye. I am back to my pre preggo weight...probably helped by that bug last week I have a little section of my wound that hasn't quite healed over yet which is why its still nippy but its not infected or anything so should heal fine in due course.
Went to the dentist only for it to be closed. Am a bit peeved that they didnt bother to phone and let me know.
Wish we had a garden. It is a gorgeous day here today.
Kaiden has more spots. Got some Eurax cream from the chemist to try. Dylan is doing brill. He turned 6 weeks yesterday
How are all you lovely ladies and your babies today?
Wow....6 weeks already! It has flown past soooo quick!
It's in the 20's here today too Waiting on the HV coming then Shaun finishing school so I can take the kids (and my Dad) to the park at Lanark Loch. It will probably be mobbed though, everyone heads there when it's sunny!!
Just back from picking up our new car It's going to be so much easier with a 7 seater!
Alex had a terrible night again. I gave him a bottle of expressed milk yesterday (well...Stephen did while I napped) and I'm convinced that's what did it. He was so windy and nothing I did would help him shift it. He spent the night sleeping (soundly) on my chest while I stayed awake. Today I have given up milk. It's the only thing I can think of that might be causing it. I usually have cornflakes for breakfast, sandwiches or noodles for lunch and a home cooked dinner. The home cooked dinners haven't been as elaborate recently but we've had a lot of meat with veg.
My MW and HV have both seen me BF. Alex has always been BFing when they have been to visit and because I have had the blisters they have both checked the latch for me and say it's fine. I know in myself that's not what's causing it anyway. He's BFing perfectly, he's a natural. It's just a shame it's being ruined because he's so windy. He's napping just now and is lying flat and although he's out for the count he's squirming and squeaking away. It's heartbreaking Stephen is off the next few nights though so I'm going to sleep as much as I can during the day so I can stay up with him at night if needs be. I managed to sleep for 3 hours this morning before I had to go and get the car and will get another few hours after dinner.
Karen, I can't believe Dylan is six weeks already!! It«s flown in so quick!
Laura, hopefully cutting out the milk will help ornat least eliminate that as a possibility.
We had an ok night last night. He was grumbly all day again wouldn't settle in his moses basket at all, slept 12-3.30 on my chest, then 4.15-6.30 in his rocker, then back with me on the couch til about 8.30. John got a bit peeved at me last night for picking him up during dinner when he was screaming, he doesn't seem to get that at this age it's not manipulation, he just wants comfort. Within ten mins though he was fast asleep enough for me to put him in his rocker!
We're not long home from a walk along the canal with James and the dogs, first time we've had him out in the pram! We're the same though, I hate not having a garden when it's like this!
Hope all thr babies are good/better! X
Arlene, when you sleep with him on your chest, do you sleep too? I can't I think I'm over paranoid about SIDS. I definitely wasn't this uptight about it when I had Shaun. I thought you were supposed to be more relaxed with your second aswell
Yeah, I can't help myself!! He sleeps slightly to my left, towards the back of the couch, so I always make sure my arm is propped up enough that he can't slide down my side. Don't know that I'd be so confident doing it in bed or anything xx
for your new car & for Alex weight - that's great and I hope reassure you that even though he is having bad wind he is gaining weight. That's brilliant. You are doing great Hope the crystals will help.
Arlene I agree that James is too young to know about manipulation. Nothing wrong with giving someone a cuddle when they need one.
Hehe its funny how we are all different. I would rather sleep with Dylan in the bed next to me than me sleeping with him on my chest. I love when he is on my chest though and snuggles his head in under my chin.
It's so cute when they do that Karen. James sleeping on my chest makes me feel like a totally protective mama bear!! Lol
Well we just gave James his first proper bath and he loved it!!! Chilled out on his wee deck chair and didn't utter a peep, obviously used to the endless hot baths I took when I was pregnant! Got some baby oil for his dry skin as well, hopefully it'll make him look less scaly! I'm such a proud mama tonight!! Xx
