Hi that's so bad especially for m&p! We used our Moses basket, Erin hated it for a few days (but I think she would have hated being put down anywhere) and she got used to it in a few days. She slept in it til around 3 months I think will have to check and that was when she outgrew it. We liked it cos it fitted in our room, but then she was such a noisy sleeper we put her in that in her nursery at about 6 weeks. If we'd had a proper carrycot for the pram to use downstairs (we have a silvercross surf) I would have got a crib for definite, but the moses basket meant we could have it downstairs in the day and upstairs at night.
Claire, Erin likes finger foods but I think that's because she was so bad with being fed from a spoon I gave lots of finger foods from 6 months. Anything hard like breadsticks, toast, rice cakes, maize snacks etc she loves. Soft things like fruit/veg fingers are a bit hit and miss. How does she do with lumps/ non mashed food?
I haven't noticed Erin sniffing either. Although I was playing around smelling her feet and saying pwoah and hen put them to her nose and she did sniff, was so cute and funny.
Ha ha trixie I can't believe conor sniffs feet and legs too lol!!!! That is too funny! I thought giada was progressing with walking, but all of a sudden she is not doing it the past couple days?? Is this common?? A few days ago she kept taking steps and falling adn then getting back up. Now she seems totally uninterested in it??
Sorry about your moses basket hispirits I bought a pack n play and a good mattress for it because I knew that I would have giada in our room for a long time and she would outgrow the moses basket soon. She still sleeps in it in our room. I had gotten the brica portable bassinet for during the day that I kept on the couch, but she outgrew it after a few months. We are discussing moving her soon as we just received her baby monitor. We got the wifi baby and I just finished setting it up on my computer and iphone, now we just need to put it in her room...then we need to put her in her room
Claire I am no expert but wouldn't worry at all about the finger foods. I swear babies just seem to do what they want. Giada would eat her little vegetable puffs on her own, but would not eat cheese on her own for the longest time. I would put in on her tray and she would pick it up and look at it and not eat it. If I put it in her mouth she ate it and liked it, but would not do it herself. Maybe Darcey just likes the other food better? Happy birthday to her!!! Giada has now started throwing her food on the ground. she will put one in her mouth and one on the floor...it's driving me crazy!
Well dh forgot to pull out last night and I got a positive ovulation test this morning He pulled out half way through when I said something. So I don't think there is a good chance that anything happened, but I am still scared. It would not be a good time right now as we probably have to move soon and we are leaning toward only having one. Oh well, the odds are that there is no way I can get pregnant, but it still makes me nervous!
My kitchen floor is so grubby, Conor throws his food constantly!!!! He has done it since I started weaning so you will get used to it!!!
Don't worry abt the walking Conor did that for like a month or so then just took off!
My 3 neighbours are pregnant, same as last time!!! Im not sure yet if we are ttc or ntnp.... Cause I still don't know when I'm ovulating cause I'm not yet using the cbfm but i charting everything but the temp.... Not sure if we are ready yet.... Kinda hope it happens in the summer, but thinking of just seeing how things go!!! And not getting too wrapped up in it all !
I think I ovulated today or yesterday... Got cramp and felt like af was coming... So at least I'm taking notice!!! And we dtd day before yesterday and today.... So you never know
Any who Conor slept till 7:30 this morning.... That's a first ever!!!! I'm working tomorrow but if he sleeps late I'll just leave him and go to work late! One can hope!!!
Well today was the first time James had Conor all day cause I was working and he said he had a good day and hardly cried!! Si that was grand until I noticed the child had 2 black eyes!!!! He fell once and hit his high chair .... He's grand though but hope the eyes don't go too black or anyone would think we battered him!!
Think he must have exaggerated about the " good day"!!!!!!
Poor conor!!! yea I have a hard time seeing that conor barely cried with 2 black eyes!!! HOpe he is ok! Giada has had some big falls lately All of a sudden she is not very interested in walking and seems more off balance. I'm wondering if she got scared from a fall? How great he slept til 7:30!!! I am trying to get giada to sleep a bit less during the day to see if she will sleep longer at night. She doesn't usually wake til 7 or a bit later, but I would like her to go to bed earlier. SHe is up til 9 many nights and I want her in bed by 8:30 at teh latest. Ineed some down time!!! What time does conor go to bed?
Had a coffee with an old school friend today.... Even though Conor was with me , he was as good as gold and now in bed asleep!! But I felt like a normal human being again and not only a mum!!! It was nice! Omg it took 13 months for that !!! Hee hee!
I guess this is a drunken post lol! I'm waiting for dh to come back with food but mil was watching LO and we were going to go to dinner and we stopped at a bar first. We started playing pool and now I'm addicted to beating him so I sent him for fast food. Horrible!! We should haven gone to dinner. On he's here. Wrie more later!!!
Happy birthday to Bryce! Hope he had a great birthday.
Sounds like you had a fun evening stranje! Nice you had a date night with hubby. I really need to arrange something for me and oh. We haven't been out together in the evening since Erin was 3 weeks (only then cos my mum was over and watched Erin and wanted us to have a night before she went back to oz!). That's so bad. I'm going to get on the case now!
Erin is walking! 6 steps at nursery on the 13th and then when she came home on the 14th she was walking everywhere! Nursery has been going great, she seems to be really happy there which makes me happy. Just need to get naps sorted there, they are a bit unpredictable although she's still napping fine at home. Maybe will just take more getting used to. Got her first nursery painting, a Valentines one which was too cute. Went back to work on the 12th as well, its gone fine, I just find myself missing her so much and thinking about what she's doing, have to force myself to focus on work but its not been to bad. Guess it helps I found out I've been given a promotion so that was nice news to go back to.
