In the nights Elodie can go about 5 hours sometimes but then for the next feed it's like 3 hours later ON THE DOT I can't wait for her to do longer stretches either, I've forgotten what a full nights sleep is like! She's awake now in her mises basket but I'm trying to let her get herself to sleep, won't work though she's getting more worked up now and screaming
Aw love him, that's a good sign at least! Elodie's got her injections soon, I'm dreading it
It is but not when it's the middle of the night lol! aw that's an improvement then! Bless him yeah I phoned them after and explained and told me to ring my out of hours doctors because her nappies wasn't as wet as normal and they just said wait it out basically because she's still taking feeds well I took her to the doctors aswell just to make sure and they said the same she's better now but still not 100%!
I haven't tried her in it yet, I'm going to soon I just haven't got round to it. Lol oh I bet Elodie won't have that trouble she'll fall asleep anywhere lol, she's flat out on my chest now
Yep I'm glad too, it was such a worry with it because they're so hard to understand, it's all really confusing with open uni really excited to start now though
Not yet, my health visitor said there's some younger mam groups quite local to me but I'm not sure when so I'll have to ask when I see her next! I think I'd rather go to a young mothers one because I won't feel as patronised then oh wow I bet that made you feel a lot better actually talking to someone who knows what you went through
Ohh wow thats amazing! Sooooo wish DJ would go 5 hours yeah i have given up hope of ever having a half decent sleep LOL just destined to daydream about the time we used to sleep makes me blush that i used to moan in pregnancy that i was missing sleep when i would wake up once in the night
Does she often send herself to sleep? DJ sometimes does but ONLY if he has been put down to sleep, opens his eyes wriggles a bit then will sometimes go to sleep on his own LOL i dunno when they are supposed to put themselves to sleep?
Poor bubby, seems so cruel when the docs are like that how is she now? Any improvement? Dont forget there is always em doc if you cant get in to your docs with her
Might be worh trying the group? I need to get my bum in gear and go to one of the groups round here LOL i always seem to fill my week up somehow
I feel bad complaining about how bad my sleep is when you've got a baby that wakes more than Elodie it's just getting used to broken sleep lol! I used to hate it when people said 'get all your sleep in now while you've got the chance!' But I know what they mean haha! It's tiring even in the day, it's emotionally draining too I think
Sometimes she does, she used to then she stopped, she's getting back into it now though! Rarely you can put her down and she'll go to sleep, or she does a bit more if she's half awake but if you put her down and she doesn't want to be put down she'll let you know I think it just depends when they learn, sometimes they can do it from birth, sometimes not for a few months I think!
I know she's a bit better now thank you, her nappies are wetter and she's not as sleepy but still pooing so I'm going to take her up to baby clinic Tuesday to get her weighed and if she hasn't put on around 12 ounces or lost weight then I'm going to get a second opinion and see if they can do something, hate seeing her ill bless her!
Yeah I'll ask my health visitor when I see her! me and my friend and her son are going to try baby massage Tuesday I think not sure what happens there but it's worth a go lol! I need to start filling my week up it gets me down sometimes! My best friend stopped talking to me when I got pregnant and I don't know why, she just cut all contact I know it sounds so childish but I've really been missing her lately! She won't answer me to tell me what I did that was so bad either
Me and my friend are going to start swimming and fitness classes this week and I'm eating healthy so bye bye baby weight Elodie has her injections on the 2nd July, I'm so scared! I didn't think I'd cry at her heel prick test but they took her in the other room and I heard her cry and I had a huge lump in my throat, had to push the tears back
Hi girls! Sorry I haven't been on here for a while! Full time job this baby lark!
I really can't remember what a full night sleep is!
Can't get Bjorn down til around midnight then he is normally up at 2,5 and 7 the 5am wake is the worst as that's when it's hardiest to get him back down and also when I feel the most exhausted! He will also only go down after a feed.
Bjorn had his 8 week jabs two weeks ago and it just breaks your heart!
Feff I need to start swimming classes to get rid of this bloody baby weight! Still have 8lb to go and just can't shake it! Fit into my pre pregnancy clothes but not comfortably! Also my boobs look like two baseballs!!
Bjorn is very constipated all the time but doesn't have colic thank god!
Hope your all well! Xxx
Lol tell me about it, i'm lucky i've got such a laid back baby!
Sorry Bjorn is a pain in the nights rooster! Oh no I'm so afraid for them! I haven't even weighed yet lol I'm going to after Elodie settles, I'd say I need to lose a stone at least same here! Well, the other day I bought myself some new clothes for a treat and I could fit back into a size 12! Was so shocked Elodie was constipated all the time too but I put her on comfort milk which helped my health visitor said that one poo a day is okay but if they don't go for a couple of days you can give them boiled water with a teaspoon of freshly squeezed orange juice I don't know if it works though! Hope everything is okay xx
Aww the jabs are ok done in seconds and they stop crying before you have time to put them back in pram and leave lol. Just make sure you have calpol to hand if her temp goes up did you go to the clinic? What did they say? Is she better now? I guess they pick up bugs too?
How did you get on with baby massage and hv? Did you start your fitness classes? I NEED to get back to slimming world but just too tired to bother booooo...need motivation on the plus side DJ has dropped his midnight feed so only a matter of time till 4 am feed goes bye bye wahoo
Sounds like your old friend wasn't much of a friend at all to ditch you when you need friends the most I would stop texting her if I were you, you will meet mums your age with babies similar age to Elodie who will be more supportive
Omg my iPad keeps replacing words grrrr not used to this thing!! Much easier to shift about than my clunky laptop though
Hey rooster Hun how you getting on? Are you still bfing? I noticed DJ goes longer now he on formula x
I just have a feeling that she'll cry loads she hasn't been herself again today she was screaming earlier it was horrible I think it was a bit of a bad belly though because she had some farts burps and poos and was better then yeah I went to the clinic and she's putting weight on (11.12 now!) so the health visitor said to try cutting get bottles down by an ounce and getting size 2 teats! Hopefully that'll work she's been better than when it first started apart from today no idea what's wrong but it's killing me seeing her unwell, especially when nobody knows what it is how is DJ?
I didn't go to baby massage after, my friends baby didn't wake up until 10.40am and it started at 11 haha! Lucky devil I've started swimming with my friend I really enjoyed it! Loved getting back in the pool I know lol it's hard finding the motivation wow lucky you! Go DJ! Won't be long and you'll be having a full nights sleep again, grrrrr
I know it's just strange because I don't have a clue why! She'll regret it when her and her boyfriend splits up anyway, she's gave up everybody for him yep. I'm going to ask my health visitor about that young mams group next week and see about going to that
I use my iphone and I have to take 20 minutes at the end of a post to make sure it makes sense lol! Stupid autocorrect!! Xx
Awe it is horrible seeing them cry really makes me wanna cry too but they really do stop super quick cos they realise the pain is gone I guess lol DJ slept for about an hour after then got really fussy and hot so I gave him some calpol and he was fine after that
How come they said to reduce the bottle? Is she gaining too quick? Hate when they do that, they said we were over feeding DJ now he is fussy with his food I would love love love if he had too much! How much does she take how regular? We are lucky to get 3 oz 3 hourly lately driving me nuts feels like I'm always trying to get him to take more
Omg lucky friend, what time does her bubs go to bed? Wow 10:40 we can but dream! LOL!!! Ohh swimming is so nice, I might start going with my mum again, was also gonna go with my cousin and our bubbys
She will regret it, but no point in hanging round till she does, let her come running when she realises what a bad friend she is lol autocorrect has a lot to answer for hehe just done my check lol probs. issued some haha! X
Yeah me too Elodie never cries like she's in pain but she was earlier and it was horrible because I couldn't do anything, I'll be worse than her next week aw thanks for telling me about the calpol, I'll have to get some in!
Because they think that 6oz is too much and she doesn't really want it but because she's being offered it shes drinking it anyway so that could be what is making her ill, and they said to use bigger teats because it could be that she's working too hard for her milk she was on 6oz every 3-4ish hours, but now she's back to 5oz it's normally every 3 hours in the day and random in the night, but it depends how lazy she's being lol! Oh love him has his weight gain slowed down? How come he's down so low now?
I know lol! Well normally he sleeps from 11-7 but I'm not sure what time he went to bed that day, imagine 11 - near enough 11 lol, I'd love it! Yeah I love swimming, that and running is the only exercise I like
Yeah I'm just fed up of it now lol! It's sad really how most of my friends have drifted now I have a baby it was the same when I was pregnant but I had more people being nosey then lol! I think that's why I miss being pregnant so much tbh, the attention and the people around me as bad as that sounds
