Sharn I am also suffering now Alfie's top teeth have grown. Every time I feed him they press in to my nipple leaving little indents and he's not even biting, they are just pressing down on me. I don't know what to do to remedy it as he's been fine up until now and seems oblivious. I have had some success with hipp organic - the last few days I have given it to him in his cereal and haven't noticed a reaction so fingers crossed we've found a formula which suits him! I am going to start slowly weaning him on to it - unfortunately he is also a bottle refuser so it's a bit difficult. He will drink from a plastic tommee tippee cup with a free flowing spout (trainer cup... Can't explain it very well) but it's messy so I've only used water in it so far. He is getting better drinking water from it so I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and give a milk feed a go. Using formula is going to be a minefield as up until now we've only done breastfeeding!
Wow Anna! I am getting Alfie weighed today but I doubt he weighs much more than last time, he seems to gain very little these days now he is on the move!
Over the weekend he has started to rock on his hands and knees he also does a little froggy hop forwards! Hopefully he will be crawling soon.
I went to a baby show on Saturday and they had a bottle called at 'haberman suckle feeder'. It is designed to work just like a breast. I tried to get one in boots but they sold out! So I am going to try and hunt one down from another boots this week - it may solve our problems with the bedtime/night feeds if we can get one and Alfie likes it. They are £7 per bottle so quite expensive but if it works it's worth it
Wow lol this really puts into perapective how small seth is for me... he was weighed yesterday and is 26lb 4oz.
Woot rose.... alfie and ethan seem to be at the same stage with crawling. Ethan still can only go backwards sliding along the floor, and only manages one bunny hop before hes fkat on his face.
Good luck finding those bottles hun! £7 is pretty expensive but deff worth it if it works! Xxx
My 6 year old is only 35lb, so Ruben is quickly catching her up at the moment!
Poor Ruben has bronchiolitis and has been given an inhaler by the doctor to use for the next 2-3 months or until his wheezing clears up. I'm annoyed as I took him to the doctors 2 weeks ago (not my usual one) and she said his chest was clear! My doctor was horrified when I saw him on tuesday and prescribed the inhaler straight away. Luckily Ruben seems to be his normal smiley self, so its not bothering him too much.
I'm not sure how she missed it to be honest, I told her he'd been making a whistling sound as well!
Phantom movements - I've always had these ever since the first time I was pg, I mostly don't notice them now, but sometimes I get a big one and in the back of my mind I think I ought to test and then I forget about it and af shows up!
