Congrats loads Honeybee and welcome to earth Freddie. Hope you're enjoying mummy-hood. It's a crazy job and we must be mad to do it! Sorry your birth was so traumatic. Hopefully it hasn't put you off for life!

I'm struggling with breastfeeding as Heidi won't settle after her feeds. Last night I had to top her up with formula and felt like a failure. I've got loads of milk (it can jet across the room when I try and hand express). I suck at pump expressing and can only get 20ml in a sitting. Feeling fed up.

Huge congratulations Honeybee! Another little yellow bump turned blue I love the name too. Is he Frederick or just Freddie? I'm really sorry to hear you had such a rough time of it, it sounds exhausting. How are you holding up? Don't feel guilty for feeling bad about the birth not going the way you'd hoped. We all know a healthy baby and mummy is best, blah blah blah, but a traumatic birth is just that - very traumatic - and you are more than entitled to be upset/pissed off/whatever. Take some time and talk to someone if you need to

Sooz - how is the breastfeeding going? Try not to feel like a failure, I know it's so hard, I cried my eyes out the first time I gave Felix some formula and still won't let anyone else (other than OH) bottle feed him as it feels like some small consolation for not being able to breastfeed. It's a rough ride but don't beat yourself up about it whatever's happening. I can't believe your little lady is a month old already. How are you feeling?

How is everyone else doing? It's been quiet round here lately. We're doing great, Felix can now sit unaided (sort of, he still faceplants quite a lot) and we are going to start weaning soon. I can't believe how quickly it's all going!

Hi ladies!

Yeah it has been quiet round here recently. How is everyone?

Jo that's great about Felix beginning to sit unaided!

AFM I've been taking every day as it comes really but am beginning to feel very scared about my 12 week scan on Tuesday. I'm so worried they're going to turn around and say its happened again. I'm trying to stay positive but I'm so scared.
I was shopping today and saw the cutest baby clothes. I really want this baby

It has been super quiet!

Mini- It's completely understandable that you're nervous. I was freaking out and I havent even been in your situation. It'll be ok- try to keep calm ( I know harder said than done ). When is your scan?

sooz- She could be going through a growth spurt..We have to give Hunter formula after I nurse him. We try to give breastmilk if Ive pumped enough but that doesnt always happen. I felt like a failure the first couple times we gave him formula, and I still do every now and then, especially this last week because we had to up the formula. But DH always says ( and I tell myself this too ) I've gotta do whats best for him. If thats giving him formula then so be it, Ive gotta do what is best for him. Im sure you're doing a wonderful job!

I hope all you ladies are doing wonderful!

Sooz – Yeah im local and I work in the Royal which also makes me nervous lol. I didn’t realise partners were allowed in all day that makes me feel a bit better! I am allowed to use the birth centre so fingers crossed everything will go as well as it can. I cant give you any advice on breastfeeding but your trying your best and thats all you can do! I hope you are okay and getting lots of support from DH/family and friends

HoneyBee – congrats on the birth of baby Freddie!! Im sorry the labour wasn’t what you planned but im glad your both safe and well and hope your now recovering well at home!

Mini – I hope your ok im sure everything will be fine on Tuesday but given what you have been through its completely understandable that you feel this way. Ill be thinking of you!

Snuffles – how you feeling? Do you know if your bump is pink or blue yet?

Cake – I hope all goes well at your FS app. I remember my first app with the specialist like it was yesterday I was so negative about things and he was always so positive and helpful and very pro active. I hope the team at the clinic you attend are just as good as it makes all the difference. Sending lots of to you

Hope everyone else is well

AFM im doing well just a bit panicked at babys position which is currently back to back. Praying he turns soon and starts to engage xx

Mini - wishing you lots of luck for Tuesday, I'll be thinking of you. I'm sure everything will be fine but it must be such a nerve wracking time

Cake - good luck to you on Tuesday too! Are you having bloods done or anything or just an initial chat?

Mojo - fingers crossed baby turns but try not to worry about it too much. My friend delivered a back to back baby with just gas and air! Felix also was back to back throughout my labour (he wasn't at my midwife appointment the week before so not sure when he turned), I did feel the contractions very much in my back but obviously I have nothing to compare it to he turned after some super strong contractions literally just before/as I was starting to push so he came out the right way. Spend lots of time on your hands and knees!
