Kita, is Dane chubbing up at all too??? You could try some formula too instead of totally giving up on BF'ing if it came to that. It will be time for solids soon too if he is ready, that might help if he is still hungry. Is he still sleeping the same???

I have found that an amber necklace has all but gotten rid of Felix's refluxy digestion problem. He was spewing up curdled milk that smelt like vomit 5 times a day and now, NOTHING!

Sim, hopefully Maisie's hips are all good, poor wee poppit.

Felix started rolling over today wub.gif Most of you have probably seen the video on FB wink.gif He has been having a growth spurt the last 2 days- sleeping all day long and being all grumpy.

We are off for a girls and bubs weekend while the boys all go duck shooting rolleyes.gif Cannot wait!!!!

Hope everyone is well, would be great to hear from some of those we haven't heard from in awhile........

Hello Ladies,

This thread hasn't been written in for a while so I thought i'd put in an update.

Dane is now 3.5months old and growing up so fast. He is such a happy boy and has started mouthing anything he can get his hands on or anything within about 15cm from his face! He is so good at tummy time i'm really worried he'll be on the move in a couple of months haha

As for the weight gain he put on 240g in the 2 weeks between appointments so the nurse isn't worried but we have another appointment in 2 weeks to keep an eye on it. It took him 13 weeks to put on exactly 1kg since birth so we are slowly getting there! On the upside we are getting a lot of wear out of our smaller sized clothing tongue.gif On the downside we have moved to infant sized huggies nappies to contain his poos (TMI) but they don't come in boxes so unless the packets are on special it can be quite expensive and it looks like he'll still be in them for a while if he still gains slowly. sleep.gif

I'm still exclusively BFing and am still feeling really good about it even though he feeds so regularly both day and night. We are slowly moving towards stretching his feeds out to about 3 hours instead of 2. (Which is an improvement on the 1.5hrs he was doing previously!) Last night was great with only one wake for a feed I felt so energetic compared to him waking 3-4 Times a night. Hope all your bubba's are treating you well at night.

I now have a return to work date of 25th July sad.gif It's only 2 days a week and i'm looking forward to going back but it's going to be so hard leaving him. This is my motivation to extend his feeds a little because there is no way I could express enough milk for him for 2 days a weeks of 2 hourly feeds. I was hoping to wait until he was about 9 months but financially we would like to be a bit more stable and not having to take money out of our savings. Currently saving for our wedding, honeymoon and buying a house at the end of the year would be tough with only 1 moderate income.

I hope everyone is going well and most of our bubs are nearly ready of solids or have already started. Such a big step, hopefully they have responded well.

Hi!

This thread has been very very quiet huh.gif

We are going great, I love being a Mum wub.gif

Felix is 5 months old now, he is getting so big and has doubled his birth weight. He has had a few teething 'episodes' but no teeth through yet. He can sit up unaided for a few minutes (depends which way he is lunging laugh.gif ) and can roll both ways but doesn't really bother much. He has been eating soo much food and we are still breastfeeding. He loves the mirror, bashing the crap out of his mobile, funny faces and everything that can fit in his mouth.

How is everyone else??????

Hi girls time for an update I think! Hope everyone else can get in here and lets us know how you and your bubs are going smile.gif

Dane is now 5 months old and usually a very happy boy. Growing slowly but steady so we are very happy. He is now 5.51kg and putting on about 80-100g a week.

We have started solids now as he looked really interested watching us eat and drink and i'm going back to work in just over a week sad.gif He still feeds every 2 hours so we are hopeful that some solids will stretch that out so I don't have to express so much milk. Now we just have to work on getting him to eat lol. He likes apple but still struggling to swallow it before it moves to the front and out blush.gif

He is nearly sitting by himself which is a bit exciting. He loves doing it on our laps but when I put him on the floor he tries to stand so when he stops that it will be full steam ahead.

We are heading to QLD on a plane in 2 weeks just D and I so i'm hoping that runs smoothly and the pressure doesn't hurt his ears. I'm sure you'll ready about it on facebook.

And to finish off DF has been on holidays for the last 2 weeks and I have loved having him around and just watching him play with Dane wub.gif It has been so good I don't want him to go back nor do I really want to go back.

Hope everyone is well would love to here how you are all going!

Hey Andie great to hear from you! Would love to see some recent pictures of Alexis. I'm sure she's gorgeous smile.gif

We are going great here. Dane is 6 months old today and just growing up more each day. Everytime I watch him play I see or hear him do something that he's never done before. It is such a wonderful feeling i'm sure you all know wub.gif He's now rolling both ways and sitting really well. He is starting to roll away now with him getting into the DVD's this morning which are under the TV. So many things we'll have to keep an eye on when we get to the crawling!

I'm back to work and it has been going well. He loves his food now and some days can go up to 4 hours without milk so it has been such an improvement and i've been able to continue breastfeed without any issues which i'm so pleased about. His Nan (MIL) loves looking after him and he seems to be enjoying it.

Can't wait to hear how everyone else is going x

Here's a recent photo of him at the park on a swing. He loved it.
