MrsMay - what are your thoughts on cloth nappies vs disposable ones? I am considering giving them a go but am not sure about the effort involved with washing etc?

As for us, we've been going through a bit of a rough patch - this parenting thing is hard work! I still feel like we're trying to find our feet with everything and work out what's going on. I'm looking forward to being a bit more relaxed with everything and have a better handle on what's going on e.g. how to do things, what her cries mean etc.

Has anyone got any experience with colic?

Other than that - I am finding it crazy how quickly they grow - one minute they fit into clothes and then they seem to wake up and they are too big for them!

No idea about cloth nappies, we are using disposables here :-) I think from memory Mumma3 was using cloth?

No experience with colic either, sorry sad.gif

we seem to have settled into a rough routine: 5am, 9am, 1pm, 5pm, 10pm

We are on our fourth day now waiting for a soiled nappy.... It was every 1-1.5 days but we are on the fourth day now - NOT looking forward to this one!!!!!

Tabitha has finally outgrown the huggies newborn nappies so we are using the other brands until she grows out of those. I honestly didn't realise each brand varied so much in size for "newborn" size!

Almost out of 0000 clothes too... Some of her bigger 0000 stuff fits but she will be in 000 soon. I am planning on taking her to get weighed and measured during the week.

I am here, and have been reading all the posts.

We have had a rough trot with little R being quite unwell so please excuse the lack of posts on here and the facebook group, but I am keeping up with your talks smile.gif

Loez we use cloth. We also received a huge box of disposable nappies so we use disposable at night for the time being too.

There is no extra effort with washing. Honestly! You just pop the nappy in a bucket next to the change table after every change as opposed to putting it in the bin. When the bucket is full you pop it in the washing machine. Put it on a rinse cycle. Then put it on a normal cycle with 1/2 of the normal powder you would normally use. (you can even chuck his clothes etc in at the same time if you want!)
Then you are done. No need for napisan etc.

If you have anything else you want to know just msg me or ask here.

Also colic... have you tried using infacol to help bring up the wind? You can get it in the chemist, it is in a yellow box and you only give them a little bit before a feed and boy it does wonders.

Dtd..we have done it too but I had a ceasar so didn't need to worry about anything down there really.


Mum of three. Some I get to hold in my arms...all I get to hold in my heart.

If your parent dies, you are an orphan. If your spouse dies, you are a widow.
But if your baby dies... there is no word for that.

I know what you mean!! I have had to pack away so much already. Makes me sad that he has outgrown all his little clothes!! The next size up is still a bit big, but no doubt he will grow in to it quickly!

Hope all is going well now. Is R feeling better??

Mrs May - Master D usually poops once a day now. He had been going in the afternoon, but he is quite taken with going in the early hours of the morning now!

How is everyone else going?

Leigh, how are you going hun? I hope you get something sorted out soon for sleep time.

We are plodding along well here. Although still struggling with breastfeeding. It is getting me down a little bit as I really thought it would come naturally. I will keep on trying until I cant do it anymore.

Yay! Some chatter. I am going to make a real effort to post in here, even if I end up answering my own posts!!! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif tongue.gif

Mumma3 - Sorry to hear R has not been well. I hope all is OK and manageable. Would love to hear how Little Miss is going as your helper. I bet she just adores her little brother.

MrsMay - LOL about the poop! Joey is still pooing like a trooper although not as much as in the early weeks. I just finished feeding him the other night (middle of the night) and got back into the nice warm bed and then about 5 mins later heard him do a big poo (through the monitor) Ha Ha! Back out of bed and in to change him. I swear he was smiling at me!!!

MrsW - Well done on persevering with the BF. It is really hard isn't it? At the end of the day as long as you feed them something (BF or FF) and you love them, it is all good. I worry as my let down is really fast and he struggles to drink fast enough. I think this may contribute to his burps and wind, but I hope he will get better as the days and weeks pass.

Loez - I asked an ECH nurse about burping and she said that all the patting and rubbing and jiggling does nothing to bring the burps up and that it is actually just holding them upright and allowing them to'open up' and burp is the trick. I tried this and funnily enough it works! Sometimes if I am struggling to get the burp up I lie Joey on his back for a minute or two and then I pick him up and hold him upright and the burp pops out. Bizarre. Here I was jiggling and patting and rubbing, and just holding him works..... See how you go

AFM - Joey is doing great, I think finally a growth spurt as he has been feeding every 2 - 2.5 hours over the last 48 hours or so and has been so so so sleepy. He did not seem to have one at 3 weeks, although I was expecting it.

Alex has been fantastic with Joey. He seems quite smitten and has not tried to hurt him or anything. He takes his best toy cars and his prized toys over and puts them next to Joey if he is crying and says 'its OK Joey" and pats him. So cute. I caught him trying to pop his dummy back in the other night - so sweet. Made me a bit teary!

Physically I am feeling really good, I feel I bounced back much faster this time around. I have a really sore hip though - will have to pull my finger out and go to the chiro I think.

I hear you all on the growing thing! Joey has grown 6cm in 5.5 weeks!!!! and put on 1.6kg in the same time. Go the BF!!!!! Goodness me.

Am still waiting to see the ECHN Clinic for Joey's first appointment, they are so hopeless in Sydney. They try and make you have this home visit but the system to arrange it has some process improvement opportunities I think!!!!! Anyway, I got sick of waiting and rang into my local ECHC saying I would be happy to just come in person and they let me make an appointment - for 24th June!!!!!! Goodness lucky I am not struggling with anything major. I found a great chemist that has a ECH Nurse two days a week and she is just lovely. I went there and had Joey weighed and measured on Wednesday. I think I will just pop in there in future. They had this a lot on the Gold Coast and I found them very helpful - even if you just wanted to weight/measure bubs. Happy Happy.

So what has everyone got planned for the weekend?

Is everyone still wrapping bubs?

I am always here, it's just hard to quote and keep track of posts on my iPhone as I am rarely on the laptop these days!!

I agree with the burping, I will normally get a burp out of Tabitha by sitting her upright and supporting her chin to open her up. I will still rub her back though. If that doesn't work I will recline her back a tiny bit then bring her forward - this will normally bring the burp to the surface. Although you have to be VERY careful doing this as if you move them upright too quickly you will get chucked on... I have made this mistake numerous times, including last night when I ended up getting chucked on down my top and cleavage - VERY sexy! NOT!! Went and had a shower after that one lol!

We haven't been wrapping Tabitha for a couple of weeks now, ever since we discovered the live me baby wrap. It's kind of like a woombie but has "wings" for their arms do they can sleep in their natural position - she loves it.

Mumma3 - that's not good with R being unwell sad.gif I am yet to experience that and I must say it's not something I am looking forward to!!

MrsW - good on you for perservering with the BFing smile.gif we had a rough time to start with too. Feel free to message me on FB (faster response) or SMS if you ever need to vent! Although I am generally around anyway lol.

Sunshine - lol at hearing Joey poop through the monitor!! I haven't experienced that yet, Tabitha has always been in the same room as me when she has let fly. That's cute that Alex is being so great with Joey too smile.gif Wow that's really slack of the ECHN clinic sad.gif

I took Tabitha to get weighed and measured last Thursday, and she now weighs 4.9kg at 6.5 weeks smile.gif length was 51cm but she refused to stretch her legs so I think it was more like 53cm.

She is still feeding and sleeping like a trooper. I feel guilty admitting this as I know some of you have been getting buggerall sleep, but she slept from 11pm until 6:40am this morning. Then had a 30 min feed and went back to bed until 10:30am. I've found that I don't really need to settle her, however if I want to make sure she goes to sleep I put on an ocean noise (from a rocker) and if it's the early morning feed I will rock her bassinette for 2 mins to start her off then just leave her. During the day though I can generally just put her into her sleep suit, tuck her into her bassinette and leave the room.

I am starting to get annoyed with some of my family members telling me that I'm a mean mother fir putting her into a "straight jacket" to sleep and for not picking her up when she is making noise. The way I figure it is if I know she's clean, fed and happy, she is fine. Normally she will wake up after her first sleep cycle and make some noise but will generally go back to sleep in 5-10 mins. Unless it escalates to a "I need you" cry then I am happy to leave her. Am I doing the right thing??

Not too much planned for this weekend, cooked this morning (puff pastry pesto stars, cheese twists, cake pops) for a three year old's birthday party that we went to this afternoon. Hubby was working today so we have the next two days off together. Tomorrow we are going to pick up some lamps that we bought on eBay then going to my parents place for dinner. No idea what we are doing on Monday, probably housework and relaxing I dare say.

Hope everyone else is going well!!

Just a quick one before I head to bed (will be back tomorrow for a bigger response wink.gif)

I am doing the same thing MrsMay, ignoring him if he makes his "protest noises". If I know he is fed, clean & happy etc I will just let him whinge.

I don't think you are doing the wrong thing at all. Sounds like she is sleeping really well and is a happy bubba, so just do what works for you.

I am picking up our "straight jacket" tomorrow. Master D really fights the wrap, so I have bought the same one that you girls have raved about. Gosh I hope he likes it.

Do you just put T in it and then a blanket over her??

Wish us luck for tomorrow night.

Oh and I am super jealous of your sleep! Master D generally only does one (maybe two) wake ups during the night, so I cant complain...although I do fantasize about the day he will sleep through the night!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Hun smile.gif

good luck with the wrap, I hope you have success with it smile.gif it took Tabitha a little bit to settle with it at first, she still grunted for a while but she is so much better now with it as it is consistent.

Yep I just put her in it and I have a flannel wrap that I have doubled over and use that to tuck her in. The temp inside the house is a constant 21 degrees (or thereabouts) so we usually don't bother with a blanket as well unless i can feel the cold then I will put a blanket on her.

sunshine, where is the chemist you went to to get weighed. i am having the same problem as you although i did have a home visit. I can't seem to find anywhere to go now. do i go to my local p for felix to have his immunisation shots or somewhere else?

i got him weighed (did it myself) on thursday (at6 weeks 1 day) and he weighs 5.5kg so just over 1kg since he was born.

i am not wrapping but using the zip up things s well. so much better but i get the straight jacket comments as well. felix is a shocker for settling (as was oliver) i nearly always have to pick him up and nurse him for a while and burping is a nightmare as well. i do the same things as mentioned above but sometimes don't get anything up especially at his 6pm feed and i struggle to get him to go down to sleep after that. i think kicking on the play gym helps get the wind up or out.

i also use infacol but don't think it helps.

sunshine, how are you going with 2? oliver is very good with felix as well but i am sure things will change when my parents leave next week and i am on my own. have you parents gone yet? how long did they stay for? my parents had to wait till i was able to drive again. (Thank god). any tips for me on routine for first thing in the morning and dinner time? i am worried about getting everyone's needs and wants fulfiilled

Just an update from me...

We are doing well although we both have a bit of a cough and the sniffles but I think it's almost gone which is good.

Went to the doctors today to get my injection (contraception: depo-ralovera) which is great, don't gave to worry about that again for three months smile.gif couldn't believe it though, after T only pooing every couple of days, she pooed twice today!! I thought I was safe as she went just before we left, bug obviously not as I was sitting in the waiting room thinking "what is that smell??" then I realised what she had done lol... I managed to change her before we left the doctors though which was good.

I spoke to my doc today about two lumps that have come up during pregnancy and he wasn't happy with them. So now I am booked on for Friday and he is taking out the one on my back to determine what it is and whether we need to take out the one on my chest too. Not fun!! My MIL is taking a long lunch break to come over and look after T while I go to that appt, I must say it is quite convenient that she has flexible hours and jumps at the chance to look after her smile.gif I had a docs appt last Friday too (to get script) and dropped her off then too - much easier!!

We are well and truly into 000's now smile.gif I bought a bulk lot of girls 000 clothes on eBay for $32 (incl postage) which was pretty good! I am weeding through all her 0000 clothes and giving the unisex ones to a friend of ours who is having a boy in September.

Ok, am off to do dinner now, will be back later to update further.

ok so still updating lol....

we have had some up and down days this week, poor Tabitha has had some horrible wind in the evenings which has been horrible sad.gif Luckily DH is good at massaging it out and then calming her down which is good as I have generally had enough by the time he gets home (how bad does that sound?) and just want to zone out.

She is sleeping like an angel though which is fantastic, she slept for 8 hours straight last night.

DH and I had a chat last night and he wants me to go out by myself once a week, whether it is just to shop, to go to the movies or catch up with friends but basically to have some "me" time. He doesnt want me to end up burnt out which is good. I think I'm being kicked out of the house tonight to go shopping but will probably only go to target and harbourtown lol.

ok gotta run, I can hear her waking up - about time too! it's just over 5 hours since the start of her last feed and she's been asleep for 3.5 hours lol. She attempted to wake up when I was having lunch and I wanted some more time so I put the dummy in thinking that would buy me another 15 mins but it bought me another 2 hours laugh.gif

Hi Everyone smile.gif

Mumma3 - What brand MCN do you use? I am trialling Cushie Tushies couture, Bambooty & Itti Bitti. Itti Bitti are my favourite so far, but I’ve noticed some leaks, argh!! So we haven’t purchased a full-time supply yet, I’m undecided on which brand to get. The cushie tushies are one size fits all, and they are way too bulky on her, no leaks, but her clothes struggle to fit around the nappy. Bambooty are good, we have 6 small size, and they are getting too small now. We also have 2 Itti Bitti, one all-in-one and one snap-in.

Mrs May – sorry to hear about your bumps sad.gif Hope it all went ok, and it is nothing serious. I'm well overdue for a skin check too.

Lucky you have your MIL to look after T while you’re at the doctors. I had a 10week checkup with my Obs last week, and DH wasn’t keen to come with me. So I had to leave E in the capsule in his office, while we went to the other room for the exam. And she lost the dummy and started fussing.. and then crying.. and then REALLY crying sad.gif All while I was half-naked on the table trying to pay attention to what the Dr was saying (needless to say I remember naught!). The midwife picked her up and comforted her, and then the admin lady had a hold. I dressed as quick as I could and checked on her. Awful feeling though, that she needed me and I wasn’t there ohmy.gif But she was fine.

Glad your DH is insisting on ‘me’ time!! We seem to be always having that chat, though it has improved lately. My DH seems to lack confidence to look after E, and was thinking I would do all the ‘baby’ work, and he would do all the housework. Umm, no! So after a few chats he has become more involved. I think the turning point may have been one evening when I was settling E while he was playing computer games (his 'me' time), and I called him via intercom in tears and when he arrived, handed E to him saying ‘for my mental state’. I felt that while my life had completely changed, he was still doing his old routines and nothing had really changed for him IYKWIM. But things are much better now.

AFM: E is nearly 11 weeks old, and is well into 000 now, only a few 0000 shirts still fit. We’re even using some 00! Though they are a little bit loose. She was 5.6kg at last weigh-in and is about 59cm long. I’ll get her weighed again on Wednesday.

Breastfeeding is going really well. Sometimes they feel ‘empty’, yet she seems to be getting enough. We have started to use a dummy for settling, or sometimes I’ll give her a ‘dream feed’ to settle. Since starting the dream feeds (instead of dummy), I’m now getting that ‘full’ feeling back smile.gif I have to get expressing more, as I’m planning a few nights out each week (netball and zumba!). My let-down/flow is really fast too; sometimes she is finished in 5 mins! And we’re still only using one side each feed. I'll offer the other side, but she is not interested.

We are a little worried that sometimes she will only settle with the dummy or a dream feed. We're trying to encourage self-settling and independent sleep, but then again she's not even 3 mths old yet! So I figure we do what we need to do to settle her to sleep, and worry about later later? I plan to wean her off the dummy at about 6mths(?) when the sucking reflex goes.

In the last week or so we have (somehow!) got into a new routine. E feeds every 2-3 hrs during the day, we have a bath around 8ish, then into bed about 9pm. Sometimes she’ll have another feed at 10ish, but sometimes will sleep through to about 4am. The longest sleep so far was last week: 7.5hrs!!!

She is starting to lift her head/chest more and more at each tummytime. And the other day she grabbed onto one of the dangly toys at her playgym! She’s putting her fist in her mouth more and more, and if I place the rattle in her hand, she’ll hang on to it, and bring it to her mouth. Vocally she’s babbling more, and yesterday said ‘agoo’! Hilarious, because I had recently read (on the Raising Children website I think), that they’ll say ‘agoo’, and she did!!

We are using the Baby Geek iPhone app to record her feeds/sleeps, etc. It’s great! I love how it shows the routine in a chart, so I can easily see the patterns.

Her immunisation went ok. She had big cries when the needles went in, but seemed ok afterwards. She was quite sleepy that afternoon, and a bit more fussy/wingey in the following days (perfect time to use the Hugabub!). I checked her temp a few times too, but it was all normal. My GP is now on maternity leave (poo mad.gif), and I’ve booked her 4mth shots with another Dr.

We are still wrapping, sometimes she fights it, but we persevere. I’m just using a muslin wrap, seems to work fine for us.

E has been physically well so far, but last week had a sore eye. There was a discharge from her right eye, and it’s been a bit weepy. It was the morning after my PIL visited… and well, DH thinks I’m being farfetched but... my MIL is a smoker and we’ve tried to tell her that she can’t hold E if she’s been smoking. I’ve read that nicotine will stick to baby’s skin. Anyway, so she had a hold that night (I figured E is having a bath soon, so it should be ok). And the next morning she had the sore eye. So I go to the ‘What to expect’ book and look up conjunctivitis. In the treatment section it states: ‘elimination of irritants, such as tobacco smoke, when possible’…. Am I ridiculous to think that the sore eye could be caused by a particle coming off MIL clothes and into E’s eye?? The whole issue is unresolved because of course MIL wants to hold E, and I’m happy for that to happen, but not when she has been smoking. The whole family hates the smoking (including her own husband), but she continues regardless (and they are both in their 60s). DH has trouble separating this issue from other PIL issues (he thinks I don’t get on with his mother, and that she doesn’t respect me, but that is a whole other story). Am I being ridiculous? I struggle with telling her ‘no’, as she’s a very strong character and can be intimidating. But we Have to do something. Saturday night we went out for dinner with his family, and it was easier to say 'no-one has a hold'. Avoidance much? unsure.gif

We don’t have a baby monitor yet, but will need to get one soon as she is fast getting too big for her bassinet. So we may have to move her into the cot in her own room sooner than 6 months.

Mothers Group is going fantastic! I have met 4 other mums through our local CHN clinic, and we’re meeting each week in each other’s homes. Last week our ‘morning tea’ went for 5 hrs!! It is so lovely having a local support network and making good friends (IRL I mean! You guys are great too!) biggrin.gif

Overall everything is going great. I’ve started to type up my birth story (must finish before I forget all the details!), and we’re making ‘home videos’ with the digital camera: stating the date, and how old she is, and what we’re up to. So in years to come we can watch and remember ‘back in the day’ laugh.gif lol

Well I have Mothers Group coming here tomorrow, so I had better get going. I’m actually attempting to bake! I attempted a sponge cake yesterday for lamingtons, and let’s just say it was a massive FAIL! I must have beaten the butter too much and it was more biscuit than cake. So I've ordered a sponge from Woolies (we order online, it's fantastic!). Today I’m doing chocolate and raspberry brownies and mini scones (I know... ambitious right!) Will let you know how I go smile.gif

Hope to hear from each of you here (on i-do), let us know how you are going!!

Please everyone come baaaaaaack!!!!!!

Question: What has been the best thing or moment so far, since your new baby arrived?

For me it is Sunday mornings, when we have a sleep in. E wakes, and I feed her in bed. Then we have cuddles/giggles all 3 of us together. Lots of smiles from E and joy from us at our gorgeous baby girl! biggrin.gif
