Super September Babies 2010
Posted 03 October 2010 - 05:40 AM
Well finally I can post officially in here yay
Bella is just Devine so in love with her. We are having a few feeding problems until my milk comes in so until then she is on formula. Hoping that she loses alil of her yellowness or she will be on hospital for sunbaking lol. I'm feeling great in myself. Just floating still. I will be back later for personals
Hope everyone is well

I hope you don't mind me reading your thread, but I just wanted to say congratulations to all and so glad the last September mummy has now joined you!
Cherie - so lovely to hear from you. If your daughter wants a boyfriend at any point I think we may have a contender here (although she won't be able to wear heels with the height difference!)

Carla - I hope the sleep deprivation eases for you! It's a bitch isn't it!!!
Shel - I have added you on FB FINALLY Can't wait to see some more pics of little Tahlia!!! Can't help with the formula question, but when Riley has bottles of EBM he has about 80-120ml? Don't know if it's the same with formula though?
We are going really well here - R is still catnapping during the day which is horrendous I just took some photos of his nursery this morning so will try and upload today!!!
Louisa - Hahahaha classic! Our own little i-do Edward and Bella!!! Hopefully they aren't as theatrical as the Forks version though

How exciting we are alkl officially in here now, just a little sad though that we are no longer in the pregnancy section and i dont really feel like i will be in that section ever again, feeling very complete right now
Louisa- i love the idea of Edward and Bella, but i am an absolute twighlight fan
Cherie- welcome to the other side, you little girl is gorgeous
I had heartburn with both pregnancies amd had one very bald baby and one with a lot of hair, work that one out
Em- sorry to hear about Rileys catnapping, that is not fun
Well we are all good here. Chloe is only happy when she is on a strict routine so we are following tizzy halls now. If i follow it to the tea, she sleeps like a trouper all day, is up for a couple of hours at night and then through the night when she isnt feeding. If i dont follow the routine, she is very unsettled and is awake a lot of the day and up to 11pm at night like last night. She wont take a dummy either so she is learning to self settle at the moment, ah she is so different to Aidan

Louisa so great to see you 'stalking' our threads, i love it when you pop in I am also loving the piccies and fb action, your little man is TOO cute and your birth story was ace
Nicki, I saw the pics of Riley's nursery on fb and you have done an amazing job, it is just beautiful, looks like it belongs in a magazine!! I don't think Seamus' will ever be that pretty...right now it still has a long way to go, looks like an empty room compared to how it used to look with all of Cate's stuff in there. And yes, sleep deprivation IS a bitch, no two ways about it...but I can cope when Cate is sleeping through!!!
Glad the routine is working for you Victoria I started SOS with Cate when she was 12 months and it worked great for us at that point. I have to re-visit it I guess - not in a routine right now, still finding our way...
Shelzn that is no good about your family I must admit the 'fuss' over baby number two is very different as compared to number one, but Seamus is still being incredibly spoilt, it is quite overwhelming. Still my brother and sister have been a bit slack too!! Perhaps it's just me who goes mental over new babies??? I hope they pay T some more attention soon.
Well we had a lovely day today - very quiet, at home all day, bliss. Cate has been a very good girl for two days straight and slept right through last night which was divine. Oh and Seamus woke every two hours BUT he self settled in his bassinette after every feed which was a first - so good night last night!
Wrote out my birth stoyr today and organised gifts and cards for my midwives so feeling quite on top of things. My little man has just been bathed...I am off to feed him and then put us both to bed. Night night!!

Victoria - I also used SOS with Emmy but have found it hard to implement with Riley so far - he wants to be fed when he wants to be fed so he won't fit in with Tizzie's routine And the sleep times aren't working for us with Emmy's daycare drop off/pick up times so we are just doing the whole feed, play, sleep thing for now and will try SOS again when he is a bit older!
Can I ask some more questions if I could
How much 'awake' time do your bubs have between feeds?
How much are your bubs unhappy/unsettled in an average day?
Riley is generally awake 1-2 hours between feeds, which means he catnaps as he is still feeding every 2-3 hours I just can't work out any sort of routine/guide to our days at all! Sometimes he will do a big feed, sometimes just one side - if he just has one side he is screaming for food again in 1 hour and he NEVER goes longer than 3 hours day or night!) When I put him to sleep in his cot he wakes up crying after 10-15 minutes, but if I nurse him on my lap he might sleep for 1-2 hours He is generally 'happy' for only about 15 minutes after a feed then he is cross and unsettled the rest of the time.... So for us I would say he is unhappy/crying about 3-4 hours a day in total - is this normal? The paediatrician says it is
Sorry I am just so new to this whole baby caper. Em had sever reflux so she screamed the house down from 6am-10.30pm not sleeping at all until 10.30pm when she collapsed in exhaustion so I never had a regular baby

this is what i experienced too and now have a normal baby also. As long as i am closely following the routine (as much as possible ), unsettlred times are limited with Miss C. Basically she has some awake time in the morning and once she starts to get a little restless, i know its time for bed. The worst time for us is from her 3pm bottle till about 6pm on non bath days, i try and settle her like Tizzie says but she will catnap for like 10-20 min periods then wake up crying again. I usually can settle her at about 6 and thats ok. I know Tizzie says 7pm bedtime but Chloe like to sleep before then on non bath days. On bath days, she can be restless on and off till about 8:30pm as she tends to become alive after her bath then she is so tired because she has been awake for so long .

Hmmmmmm, I don't know. Seriously. I just couldn't tell you, I am not paying attention. He definitely has awake periods but I don't know how long for. Still trying to get into a groove with it all I guess
How much are your bubs unhappy/unsettled in an average day?
Not much. Mainly because as soon as he squawks I stick him on the boob - yes, I am a demand feeder So far I have found the worst time is usually somewhere in the night - he will feed and not go back to sleep for up to two hours (4 - 6am today for example). I don't think 3 - 4 hours of crying is too bad...I *think* Robin Barker says it's a problem if they are crying for three hours in a row every day for more than a week - or something like that. It's a great read if you can get it ("Baby Love").
Sorry Nicki, I am not much help.
A bit out of it right now, need to get on to bath time. I can't believe it is 9.10pm already, daylight savings is knocking me around a bit.
It is my beautiful girl's second birthday tomorrow Can't believe it!!!
Finally have some pics from the maternity shoot to show you guys!!!
A bit late
And there's heaps more candid ones with Cate - they are beautiful...
That's it for now!!!

Well in the midst of trying to find a place, i am organising our little girls naming day. We had one for Aidan so natuirally are going to do it again. Will be on the 29th Jan as this is the earliest i could book the venue . Probably a good thing as we have to be out of here in the next 6 weeks and i have a lot of unpacking to do at the other end. Chloe a lot better today and has been following the routine well although i cannot get her to stay awake between 11-12:30 like it says after the bottle, hopefully she will be better tonight if she has a stricter day,she was awake between 3pm and 11:30pm last night and i only got her to sleep then because i put her to sleep on my chest in bed
Ill second that Baby Love is the besest book, i have the toddler one for Aidan too
Posted 05 October 2010 - 09:45 PM
Carla - Those photos are devine!!!!! I love the second last one the best!!! I demand feed Riley too but if he is not hungry offering him the boob just gets him more upset!!!
Victoria - Sounds like you have your hands full at the moment with the naming day and moving!!! Superwoman!!!
