daddiesgift - I moved my toddler to her own cot next to my bed a few weeks before i was due and she was sleeping well in it but since the baby was born she has been back in bed with us on and off. Four in a bed is too squashy for us. plus she is rough and keeps kicking me in the back! From left to right we sleep; dad, toddler, mum, baby. Once toddler is adjusted I want her back in the cot.

Ladies, I am in desperate need of help, my boys are just constantly fighting, the instigator believe it or not is Blake the youngest! always has to dig Kaleb as he walks past, as soon as Kaleb gets in from school at 12 it starts, he just stands there saying Mummy Blake has hit me, mummy Blake has done this, we have tried time out, ignoring even tapping his hand when he really hurts Kaleb, I am at a loss and feeling like a really rubbish Mum xxx

Thanks ladies Hard to believe she's 10 days old! It's the first time I've managed to breast feed for longer than a week (Feel a bit guilty for the boys over that). She's amazing, she hardly crys, sleeps really well (we co-sleep at the moment) .. and only wakes at about 2 and 5 for a feed - that's manageable! She doesn't seem to have got reflux yet like Henry did .... so for me that's a huge bonus knowing she isn't suffering - fingers crossed it stays this way!!!! She was born at 8lbs 15ozs and dropped to 8lbs 3ozs but is now steadily gaining and is 8lbs 5ozs


The boys have taken to her really well too! Stephen is always trying to help me and I left her on my bed this morning (in the middle!), came back from the toilet and Stephen was lying next to her singing 'twinkle twinkle little star'. He 'reads' his books to her too - okay he just tells her what the pictures are but it's so cute He also tells people she is 'his baby Phoebe' and told the midwife off for weighing her and making her cry Henry is a bit more boisterous around her so we do have to watch him, otherwise he thinks he's stroking her but really he's poking her eyes or hitting her head

How is everyone else doing?? Kelly are you all settled yet?

Hey guys im brandi. I have a 2 year old and a 7 week old. The first 4 weeks were the worst for me so far. With Onyx clusterfeeding like 14 hours a day, and my 2 year old waking up either multiple times a night, or for hours in the middle of the night, it was ridiculous. But now Emerald's sleeping seems to be regulating again, we've got a good routine at night now. Onyx cosleeps with us and when DH wakes up at 3 for work, I change Onyx. (because he feeds whenever during the night). Then again at about 6 or 7 I change him. And Emerald is either sleeping with us after 4am, or she wakes up at around 8-9am.

So its getting better. Babywearing has helped a lot too.

I ignore my boys when they fight and leave them to it (unless they start to really hurt one another/it gets dangerous i.e. near a table etC). Then, I remove one to one time out spot and the other goes to another spot. Sorry, I'm not much help BUT you are not a rubbish mum - it's not you that gets them fighting.
