    Hi shabby
    What a great idea!! I'll certainly visit, like you id always feel uneasy to post to much about my baby, I remember only too well the worry of ic, so don't want to be insensitive to those ladies by going on about night feeds and nappies etc!

    cant wait to catch up with everyone, the ic thread helped me through my pregnancy and now there's a big hole where you ladies were, lol!

    So, baby talk, my little lady is good, shes four months now, its currently 1.30am and doing the night feed, something which she gave up a couple of weeks ago and gave me a taster of what a whole nights sleep felt like! But nope, she's slipped back to her old ways again. I often have a read through here at this time with a nice cup of tea, makes getting up in the night a bit more bearable.

    How are you doing shanny?

    i am ok - also visit when feeding

    baby is good but he has a cold and has been up more frequently the last few nights he does go back to sleep quickly

    need to work on bedtime routine soon to move towards a full nights sleep hopefully he is more predictable during the day

    i am trying to get in shape as i have a big birthday party at xmas - 1st (very short run) yesterday and am following slimming world too you can eat a lot when you are feeding

    first few weeks were hard as my other kids were at home its a lot easier now they are back at school i sometimes get a nap

    wont be long before the whole food thing starts for you................it goes so quick ......except at night !!1

    i hope others find us...................still see twinkle and shelby posting the odd thing here and there

    hello ladies
    just pooping in. great idea Shanny. glad to read babies and mommys doing well. Diego is 4 months old now, waking up every 2 to 3 hours. its a little hard with having to work full time, but I manage... :)
    he just makes me so happy! all the bed rest was so worth it. feel like my body is still recuperating from being in bed for so long.
    anyway is 2:30 am here, and he is sleeping now so will try to sleep.
    hugs xx

    Shanny. I'm also trying to establish a bedtime routine. I find bath, bottle and bed at about 8pm is working and she's good until about 1am when she feeds, she settles down well after but has started waking again at 5am for milk and then decides it morning. I'm trying to wean her out of her Moses basket which she loves, so have put it in her cot in her room and then in a few days will just put her in her cot. I noticed this morning though she was quite chilly, she had a grobag on but her hands arms and face were cold, so perhaps that's why she's waking?

    I'm really enjoying having her, the smiles and cooing more than make up for the stressful pregnancy. Seeing my son with her too just melts my heart, it feels so wonderful, my family is complete.

    TLM21 glad to hear your little man is good, doesn't the time fly, unlike when we were pregnant and it dragged!

    Hi girls, I'm here too :wave:

    Ruben is so big now, it really does go fast :(

    I definitely won't be having anymore, but when I look at him I really feel broody! It's mad really given how stressed I was during his pregnancy (well all my pregnancies) with the cervix thing and also having polyhydramnios as well! Whilst I was pg I was absolutely sure I'd never want to do it again and here I am seven months down the line feeling like I could, but I won't! :haha:

    Now we've got this thread to chat about the babies, I'll upload some pictures of him. Like you girls I feel a bit uncomfortable banging on about how great he is, while I know other are having a rough time in their pregnancies.

    Hello ladies! I love this thread.. im so excited to be writing on it. such a good idea!!

    Nice to see ur all doing well!

    Shanny, alfies got a cold too. hes had it for two weeks now. iv took him to rhe doctors a few times just to make sure it hasnt gone on to his chest but hes fine up to now. hes sneezing that much his little nose bleeds :( bless him.

    Cw i find alfie wakes more when hes cold. i put him a babygrow on and a fleecey sleepsuit on top then 2blankets which seems to keep him at the right temp :) i need to take alfie out of the moses basket soon but scared its going to disrupt his sleeping pattern as hes doing so well!
    Some days he will have a last feed at 8 and i wont here nothing from him until 6. Then other nights he will feed at 8pm then wake at 3am then 7am (wer currently on this routine)
    How much does your little lady weigh now?

    Baby maybe i canr beleive ruben is 7months old! Time has flown by. i can remember reading your pregnancy journal with him!

    tlM, I think breastfed babies do feed more often. I breastfed Annabelle for the first 7 weeks and she definitely fed more often. Well done for feeding him for four months, its not easy. Twinkle, Annabelle weighed 12lb 2oz when I had her weighed 2 weeks ago.whats alfie weigh?That's amazing alfie can sleep that long!
    So tonight have her really wrapped cosy, she's just having her 1am feed and feels nice and warm.
    Its lovely to see everyone again xxx

    shanny he has been feeding every 2-3 hours since birth. he does the same during the day pretty much.
    sometimes he has gone for a four hour stretch!
    I've heard people said that breastfed babies get up often, like cw said, but I wanted to make sure the 2 hot waking was ok.
    I on the contrary, find that if he is too hot, he wakes up more often here we've been having record breaking temperatures. hopefully I can get AC unit

    Hi all I'm still here. Sophie and Emily will be a month old next week and are hard work but lush! They are normally feeding every 3-4 hours so at night's when they manage midnight, 4 and 7:30 for feeds it is great. However that doesn't happen every night! So far I am breast feeding them with one formula top up before bed. Lovely to hear how everyone is getting on kx
