Looking forward to hearing Racheous and Storkie's stories soon.

Sorry to hear about Jye's reflux Dee but glad the zantac is working. Baby T slept a lot Christmas day as well (he always sleeps for a crowd rolleyes.gif ) so we don't have many photos either. Luckily he had two 'My first Christmas' outfits because he pooed on the first one as soon as we put it on him!

Starting to be a bit more adventurous - we took him to the supermarket the other day and will take him to my gp appointment (for the whooping cough vaccine - I only just realised they didn't give it to me in hospital like they said they would) which is 40 minutes away on Monday. We might even brave the shops then depending on how he goes.

Any tips on burping and getting rid of wind? Baby T is such a windy (read: farty) little thing - we have elevated the head of his bed and try to burp him before bed but maybe it's just the way he is?

YAY!!!

Cameron had his heel prick... I cried just as much as him. The cluster feeds continue & I'm crying at the drop of a hat (tired/ecstatic). I have blurry vision from lack of sleep & am overwhelmingly happy. I'm out of panadol (oh noz!) & Cam keeps changing before my eyes. I can't believe that he is already over 50 hours old. He's my all (along with his Daddy of course ♥)

Rach - that was how I *knew* I was Harry's Mummy. When he cried from his heel prick I felt like my heart was breaking in half and bawled too! You sound SO happy....but please make sure you get some sleep soon. I know I sound like a Mum (but I am!!!) but you will come down off the high and you dont' want to crash. Rest up please blush.gif

Gretch - do you think the wind annoys him? Jamie is a bit gurgly in his tummy at times but it doesn't seem to bother him.... so I just ignore it. I occasionally get a burp out of him but don't stress over it too much. I guess I'm saying is don't worry about wind unless you KNOW it is hurting them.

Dee - glad the Zantac is working for Mr Jye. It certainly saved me during pregnancy!!!!!


All is good here... except my husband's absence. But my sister has been brilliant (albeit her very opinionated opinions about my parenting of Harry...but I've learnt over the years to bite my tongue!!!!).

Jamie is great, really really settled. Such a wee cruiser. I really want to weigh him in the next day or two to see his 1 month weight. But I can tell his is filling out. He has also started smiling which is adorable and his mouth looks like i'tll be the size of his brothers...which many people comment is the largest mouth they have ever seen tongue.gif laugh.gif http://picasaweb.goo...feat=directlink

The only time I have issues is getting him to sleep in the evening. He generally has three naps a day and then I try and get him down about 7-8pm, depending on what is happening with Harry. He can take up to an hour to settle!!! Silly as for his other sleeps and overnight he goes straight to sleep if he is swaddled and put into bed first signs of tiredness or after a feed. But in the evening he seems to KNOW it is bedtime. Harry was the same I remember.
I know it is just being overtired and fighting sleep and I'm trying to just get him up from a nap, one boob, bath, other boob and back to bed so he isn't too tired to sleep IYKWIM.

I'm just about to update our first post. Rachel - how on EARTH did you find the time to do that list....here am I a month later and I haven't got round to it!!!!!!!!!!!

Smitten.... I don't think you are *that* mad. My two are 20 months apart...in some ways I think its great but I do think things would have been easier during my pregnany if I'd waited another 6 months. Closer than this...NO WAY. I think it helps to have a toddler who can understand everything and take commands when there is a new baby there. 12 month olds can't and they often aren't walking yet so having two to carry round would be VERY tricky. JMO of course!!!!!!!

Hi Girls

Still at the hospy but hopefully leaving tomorrow provided our Little Monkey gets passed the screenings today... it was all very quiet over the weekend and it being the New Year so it's all happening today when the world is coming back to normal. biggrin.gif

Will be back as soon as I can and read up all your updates. Hope your bubbies are doing well and you are feeling great.

Am learning every minute and feeling much more confident handling Sophia already, my milk is just coming in, and yes I feel sleep deprived but nothing too too bad yet.

The only thing I am struggling with is the heamerrhoid(s) I got from that crazy pushing ph34r.gif laugh.gif

Congratulations Racheous and and Storkie on the births of your babies!

Racheous how did you find the Mater? I can't believe you're out so quickly! I had my bubby at the Mater Mothers Private and was in from the Monday until the Saturday. I found the hopsital great except for some of the nurses on at night.

I agree about the heel prick. It was really horrible. They ended up having to do both feet for my little munchkin too.

So I feel a little insane, ever since I had H I've been thinking about having another child soon. So having them around a year apart. Am I the only one feeling like this?


Thanks hun

I loved the Mater. I came across one AWFUL midwife but the rest were beyond lovely. The paed was hot (LOL) & everyone I came into contact with was friendly and helpful including the physio. I was only there one night though.

I'm soooo not looking forward to the two month vaccines sad.gif

Yeah... I want four children and we're already clucking blush.gif

If I told you that I cleaned the kitchen, did the dishes, cleaned the toilet & bathroom & generally tidied the house this morning you wouldn't believe me would you? Lol... I don't know how I'm coping with the lack of sleep & so on but I'm managing really well most of the time. I tend to have difficulty for a few hours late at night... usually coinciding with a cluster feed.

So awesome to hear wub.gif

*********

Admittedly, last night... through sobs (day four hormones!) I said that I didn't know whether I was a good enough Mummy & that I shouldn't have any more children. blush.gif

I was (I say it in past tense because I'm getting heaps better already) having real anxiety issues relating to me sleeping. I didn't want to (still don't... but managing better) sleep unless someone else was awake and watching him. Obviously impractical & I'm getting there but it had me in tears last night. I just have such a fear of anything happening to him!

This morning we had his first dr appt (day five!) & he's back to his birth weight & spot on with everything else. He has super long toe and finger nails. I managed to clip one foot then accidentally clipped some skin on his big toe (he fussed but did a big poo on me to show his lack of appreciation! LOL) so I stopped at that! LOL laugh.gif But I need to do something about his finger nails & I don't like putting mittens on him.

I've just had lunch & he's sleeping well after a feed at the doctors so I'm going to have a nap before his next feed then Mike & I are going to register his birth & get him on our medicare card.

Mike goes back to work tomorrow & I'm sure it'll be a lot harder then. For now though, I'm absolutely on cloud 9 & enjoying my son. He's feeding well & I'm occassionally expressing the last little bit of hindmilk to help him drain the breast well. It seems to be doing the trick & he's yet to cluster feed again (he was doing it alllll the time as my milk came in)

OH! & his cord fell off last night! I heard the clip fall on the ground & he sooked... I don't know if it was 100% ready but it seems really good.

I'm feeling good. I had the BEST SHOWER OF MY LIFE this morning laugh.gif I washed my hair for the first time since birth & Mike took care of him while I had a nice hot long steamy shower. Bliss! I was lucky to only get one small graze from his birth which helps. I need to keep on top of my sleep & sleep whenever I can because it makes the world of difference!

Thinking of all of you.

You are sounding a bit better today Rach! Glad you are getting some sleep!!
Have you tried filing his nails instead. I give my babies manicures while they are feeding. I hated clipping their nails when they are young as the nailbed is so long you do end up cutting the poor we things.

Hope the Mater stay has been good Storkie? Did you make some of the classes? I hope you had as good experience as me...I still dream of my 4 days of bliss there!!

All well here. Second night running I've put Jamie down with the Sounds of Silence CD (track 2) playing. He has settled 100% better both nights. He wasn't ever crying previously just wriggling and I'd think he was gone then his eyes would pop open and he'd wriggle and grunt again and we'd start all over with shhhing and patting again.
I've figured out that I have to have dinner round 5pm then sort Harry out first. Mr Independent will only have a shower so that is handy as I don't have to stay on 'drowning duty' and can fuss round cleaning. And I have moved his bedtime from 7pm to 6.30pm which is great as he still wakes at 6am. I have Jamie in the sling this whole time and once Harry is in bed I take Jamie into his room, for boobs, bath and bedtime. Geoff was round tonight to manage Harry but I did it all ok last night alone. Last night Jamie went down at 7pm woke at 11.30 then 4am then 8am so I am pretty chuffed!!!

Framboise, how do you manage to organise yourself so well!! wink.gif You are amazing. So the Sounds of Silence CD is good you reckon? I was looking at it but wasn't sure if it was worth it as it's not cheap.

The Mater was brilliant. It was staffed to the minimum due to New Years etc but still I feel I got so much info and support there, I loved all those great cooked meals too! We bathed Sophia twice and I got loads of help with the attachment for a good BF.

My milk has come in yesterday / today. I had heaps of colostrum prior and little girl has had heaps to feed on but now it's just an overload. She just about manages one boob per feed so the other one stays rock hard. I am not sure what do I do about this? Any suggestions? My milk really came in properly pretty much the moment we left the hospital (I was all teary from last night) so I didn't get to ask the midwives... what do you reckon I should do if she doesn't drain both boobs during a feed? She is also a very good sleeper at the moment, she has basically slept all day minus two feeds and a play, I expect her to get a bit more energetic at night but still she is not going to get the boobs drained altogether I don't think.

What amazed me today is that when I started feeding in the arvo, the resting boob was still leaking like crazy - we were both covered in it rolleyes.gif. I am fascinated by how our bodies work.

Rach, it sounds like you are running on a heap of energy, I can't believe you have managed the birth registry, cooking cleaning etc etc etc. What's your secret? I haven't seen any of your birth posts sorry, I haven't been online much at all, but sounds like you had a really good and smooth birth. Well done!!

Well we had our Sophia remeasured yesterday as EVERYONE at the hospital said how tall she was, and they made a mistake at the delivery as she is not 51cm long but 57cm long. She is so tall that the crib they provide at the hospital was nearly not long enough for her, especially for the baths. laugh.gif

Smitten, wow you are already thinking about the next bubs... I am not to be honest, not yet. We had a relatively good birth but with her size she was so big and long that I needed an episiotomy and a vacuum in the end (not that I feel much pain from it by the way, and I didn't even take any pain killers). But I am just really immersed in Sophia and establishing our new lives with her, I feel I have so much to learn and explore with her, I don't think I would want to do it whilst being pregnant again. But then she is 4 days old so who knows how things unfold in the next few weeks biggrin.gif

Tas, what's new in your world, how are you coping?

So much to learn and observe, I love getting to know all this stuff though wub.gif

So glad you have updated Storkie!

The one sided feeding is tricky. Jamie does the same (Harry never did).... maybe just express a litte bit off to soften it off. I wouldn't express too much as it'll just refill. In time they settle down but my are only slowly getting there. It does mean I know which side to feed on next and the feeds are quick!!

Will write more later...have friends staying with a 6 month old so it is busy right now blink.gif

Looking forward to some birth stories too!

Another vote for a nail file here - try to get Mike to do it whilst you're feeding him maybe, that worked for us.
Glad to hear you and Cameron are travelling so well. Baby T was a cluster feeder for the first few weeks but he waits at least an hour or so between feeds now rolleyes.gif ! I'm having a real love/hate relationship with breastfeeding. I love that we're both getting better at it and it's nice bonding time, but it does get draining.

What sort of sling do you have Framboise? Any tips on getting babies in them. We have used ours a bit, but T looks so uncomfortable in there and I'm not confident using it on my own.

I had/have similar issues - I never really got the concept of 'milk coming in' till I woke up with Dolly Parton boobs on day 4! Hand expressing some will help (I did it in the shower for the first couple of weeks...sweet relief). I just bought a breast pump because T has started only taking one side again each feed. The leaking is fascinating and gross at the same time; I can't feel the let down in the boob that he's feeding on but in the other one. I have to have an old school cloth nappy under my boobs at all times when I feed - I have them stashed around the house. It sounds like we have some tall babies in this group!

Baby T handled his big excursion well yesterday but has been a bit of a monster since. Last night he went to bed at 8:30, woke at 9 and didn't sleep again till 12:30, before waking again at 2:30 and 4:30. I hope tonight is better.

Gretch - I have a ring sling. I had a bubba moe for Harry but didn't find it comfortable. I love the fact the fabric stretches across my back and shoulder and distributes the weight evenly. We use the baby bjorn out and about though.
Not sure how to advise getting him in it? I just put it on and sort of slide him in cradling him in one arm and sort of tipping him in head first....if he doesn't seem comfy I move him round a bit. I guess it just takes a few goes to get used to it.

For vaccinations, I found that if I went in with Harry a little hungry then I could just pop him on the boob straight after to comfort him. TBH after the first time though it wasn't a big deal for either of us! He always reacted fine, only cried for half a minute or so and I'm sure I got more worked up than him! Assuming Jamie will be the same as he is even more laid back than Harry.
I've heard both 6 weeks and 2 months for injections...might just call my GP and see what she is doing at the moment. Can't wait for her to meet him blush.gif

How did Sophia go with feeding one or two sides, Storkie?

I'm feeling knackered today. Stayed up too late last night drinking wine ph34r.gif Had three glasses and got to bed at midnight so I wasn't being a very good Mummy. But we had very dear old friends staying (hubby's best mate and wife and baby). They live in London at the moment so we don't get to see them very often. We had brunch, a walk in Manly and swim at Shelley beach so now feeling a bit better.

My 35th birthday tomorrow mellow.gif Geoff and Harry have gone off on a secret mission...Jamie is asleep so I'm off to lie down.

Hi girls, sorry no time for personals right now, hopefully tomorrow.

I had a rough first week with anxiety attacks but did seek help & am doing really well now. Cammy is doing brilliantly & I'm so lucky to have my amazing husband. I've finally got some decent sleep & normality & am loving every moment wub.gif What a learning curve. I expected a difficult baby, not any issues with me!

I'm now on anti-anxiety tablets and Cameron is formula fed. It hasn't hurt me as much as I expected it to because I know it is for the best in the long run. I just think I was formula fed & I turned out pretty great! Is anyone else formula feeding their bubbies?

He's taken to bottle feeding and formula really well. He's needs burping more often but he's gaining weight well & sleeping really well. I'm very lucky. Life is much easier with a bit of sleep! lol

Cameron is sooo adorable & a content bubby. He tends to fuss when he needs a burp or has wind but that's about it. He has the cutest cry ever - it's more of a squeak laugh.gif

I have been wondering how you were doing Rach. What prompted the change onto formula - was it so you could take the medication? I'm glad you're feeling so positive about it as it is a big step and some many women feel needlessly guilty. Good on you!!

How is everyone else travelling???

All still going great guns here. We had a lovely family day today up on the northern beaches. We went to a new rock pool (we're trialling them all out for the boys) and then ended up at the Newport Arms for dinner. Harry had a ball but it certainly showed me that the wee routine I have Jamie in works. We didn't get home till 7pm and he was crying when we got back and has taken over an hour to settle. AND my CD player broke so I cna't use my white noise. I have been finding that if I keep things very calm and quiet in the hour or two before bedtime he goes down so easily. Looks like I'll be shopping tomorrow for a new CD player!! I also need a couple of new bras as my (.)(.) are WAY bigger this time round.
