I am still exclusively BF so I don't imagine we will ever get to a routine with the feeding. I feed her when she first wakes and depending on where we have to be and when I plan roughly when I will feed her throughout the day. It seems that my LO sleeps alot on some days. She is sometimes up about 7am, sleeps 9-12 and then sleeps again 2-5 if we are out and about. At home its a different story. When she is awake she is never content, she is either feeding or screaming, she will sit in her chair or lie on her mat for literally a few minutes. I spend much of my day trying to console her. It does get me down a bit and I know that I am wearing myself out by being so busy and trying to be out and about as much as possible as this may seem silly but it's like she haes being at home!!! Will your LO's sit in their bouncy chairs for short periods of times? I am getting her weighed tomorrow and might ask the HV for some advice.

She can be very unsettled in the evening but generally her last feed is about 8pm, and she will sleep til 4ish. If I give her formula I guess she might sleep through but to be honest I can't stay up late enough as I have to be up at 6am with DS!!! CT, that's great that Isaac is sleeping through. Are you topping him up with formula or just BF? We have an evening routine ( or try to!!!!) and early morning but the rest of the day can vary day to day. As she gets older I hope to get her napping at the same time as DS.

As for teeting we always used dentinox gel and calpol with DS. I have heard that the granules are great, but I guess it may not work for everyone.

Dreading the immunizations. Imogen will be 14 weeks by the time she has them as my docs are booked up. Just have to keep reminding yourself that the pain is worth it!!! : D

Jasper that sounds so familiar! I find it so much easier to settle him when out. I have to say it gets easier though and since hitting 3 months he's been a lot happier at home too. He's soley BF which has been demanding but I'm glad I've stuck with it.

Jasper, Niamh is similar, much more restless and demanding of attention at home, quite happy in the car seat or buggy for several hours when we are out (unless she gets really hungry anyway - was feeding her in the car park at Sainsburies the other day!). We do have a bouncy chair which she hated at first, but has gradually come around to, and that can be really useful if I have to do something on the computer, I can have her in the chair next to my desk for a while. Sometimes she won't settle in it, but on a good day she'll spend a happy half hour or more in there :)

She's been running a bit of a temp this evening after her jabs, but has been really sleepy, so hopefully she'll sleep well tonight and be better tomorrow. We've given her some Calpol which should help apparently.

Morning girls

Jasper - Olly is the same at home, he quite likes his chair but hates a play mat and screams the place down, he would easily sleep for 4 hours in his pram when were out but i'm lucky if he sleeps for 30min in the house.

Looking for some advice as i don't like my health visitor, i'm bottle feeding and started on sma gold and we thought baby had colic so started on infacol which was great for the wind but we had projectile vomit at every feed, i had heard of sma comfort which is easy to digest so changed to that along with infacol but had the same prob, a friend then said it sounded more like reflux so went to the doc and he prescribed infant gavison so started using that with comfort milk, now the projectile vomit has stopped but he's still very sick and constipated. I was thinking of going back to sma gold and using the gavison or maybe even stopping everything and going back to sma gold, feel i'm constantly chopping and changing but it's really getting to me now. Also baby is really noisy after his early morning feed although he is sleeping but he's so loud it keeps me up, any suggestions?

Sasha, we started on sma gold, then tried cow and gate comfort, and now we're on cow and gate stage 1 along with infant gaviscon. My lo sometimes gets constipated due to gaviscon and I give her a liitle bit of cooled boiled water and it helps, and it helps with wind. I think gaviscon thickens the milk so might be worth trying it with stage one milk rather than comfort milk? Xxx

Kat - thanks, he had a bottle at 11am so tried the sma gold with the gaviscon, a little sick when i lay him down to get changed but nothing major, he wont take water but i found infacol with one feed helps him to go, don't realy want to change milk but will see how we get on, it just seems to be trial and error.

Hi

I tried infacol with Dylan the other night and it did not agree with him he brought his wind up and entire contents of his stomach. The last two days he has been great throught the night only getting up at 2am and 6am and then sleeping until 9.30 which has been great for me. During the day he spends a lot of the time crying after a feed and will not go down and is really hard to console, the only way i can get him down is by taking him out in the pram. Spoke to HV about it and she says it sounds like colic, she suggested getting Dr Brown bottles for colic and using colief or detinox to help wi this. Just been reading up on colief and it has good reviews, has anyone else tried this???

Dylan is just over two weeks old now and he has put 1lb on since he was born so must be feeding him well lol, mind he only lost 3oz after birth due tot the strict feeding regime on SCBU.

Hi Taffy
Yep I used Dr Browns after I finished bfing and they did help ds with his colic, he use to projectile vomit from the pram lol. I also had a tummy tub which helped him as he's upright in the bath. Although normal bathing is supposed to help also. I tried to keep ds as upright as possible after feeding. Hope this helps xxx

I bought some Detinox for colic today, so I will let you know if its any good later this evening. So far I have tried Infacol and Grip water but neither have been great. What is a tummy tub?

I spent quite alot if time wining DD after a feed but I never uded to with DS. I saw a couple of friends today who used to BF their LO's and they never used to wind them. What do the other BFing mums do???

I managed to have an afternoon nap today!!! :thumbsup:

When I was bf-ing Zachary he never needed winding as much as he does now on ff!! When I was in hospital with him I don't think I winded him once!! :huh:

Got a question for those of you with older babas!!
Zachary has never been fussed with his milk, barely has 5oz at some feeds!!
So this morning I tried him on a couple of mouthfuls of baby rice, I do plan on doing blw when he's 6months!!
Is it ok to give him the rice now, I no the boxes saying 4months + but I don't want to upset his tummy!!

With DS I waited til 6 months to give any type of food and I didn't bother with baby rice! I went straight on to pureed fruit and veg. Mainly because I tasted the rice and thought bluerghhh! and wanted to minimise processed foods, and once you start weaning trips out are more complicated!!! If it says 4+ months it will be fine. I always introduced new foods at lunch time so that I had all day to watch for any reaction. It might be worth checking one of the BLW threads as if thats what you are planning, introducing spoon feeding now may make it difficult.

The Dentinox seems to be working. We had a chilled evening ( apart from DS climbing out of his cot!!!) and I fed her at 9pm and that was it til 5.15am!!! Thats the longest unimI have slept for months!!!

Cheenab, I went to a weaning class the other week and they said it was ok to do baby rice from 4 months and then do blw from 6 months. As jasper says if it say 4 mths+ on the box it should be fine and to try it in the morning then if he does have a reaction then you'll see it. Hope he enjoys xxx
Jasper, pleased the dentinox worked, you must feel better after all that sleep xxx
Taffycaz, did you manage to get dr brown bottles? Xxx
Lily has just started making cooing noises and her hernia has almost go too :thumbsup: when I put her to bed she's started crying which she's never done before. Is she old enough to try and leave her for a while if she's crying? Its not proper crying more like whining xxx

Thanks ladies,
he literally had the smallest amount about 5 mouthfuls, will keep it to small portions dont want to give him to much!!

Kat i'd be interested in any response you get aswell, zachary will not settle in the day on his own, i feel awful hearing him cry but he doesnt give in, if i dont go to him he will just keep crying and crying!! At night he is fine, so its weird that he cant settle himself in the day!! Dp usually lets him fall asleep on him and instead of putting him down he just lets him stay asleep on him, so maybe that has something to do with it? I always put him down when he has fell asleep, but its still the initial getting him to sleep, he really tries to fight it in the day!!!

morning girls

Got a quick quesition about myself, i have been having a pain which i think is prob in my pubic bone on the left hand side, i dont have it all the time i get it when i have been walking quite a lot, the best way to describe the pain is like a bruise or as if i have been riding a bike :) any suggestions what it could be? I had a natural delivery.

After chopping and changing milk we have settled on reflux milk without using infacol or gavison, still a wee bit sick but no where near as bad and not at every feed either, he also seems so much more settled which is always a bonus.

Hope your all well

Sorry Sasha I have no idea, may be worth getting checked out by the doc as I'm assuming you have a 6-8week check soon?

My DS doesn't always settle so I pick him up, give him a cuddle and put him down again. He likes watching his mobile/ projector so I make sure they are on and he usually drops off.

I had a similar thing when I had DS but strangely I have been fine thi time! I think it was just everything going bck in to place and the ligaments getting back to normal. For a few months after I would get pain when I walked a long distance or put all my weight on one leg. One day it just disapperead until I git pg again!!!

What does everyone do in the evenings do you put your LO's upstirs? We take Imogen up when we go up but this has woken her a few times. She is still very unsettled in the evenings so we would be up and downstairs! We put her moses basket in the inig room which is open plan with the living room, but I must remember to start using her projector so that she can self settle as this rarely happens at the mo!

At the moment I do bath at 7pm then bring DS downstairs for his final feed. My monitor has broken so I put him down in the cot in the lounge and then at around 9 I feed him and take him upstairs. Sometimes he is asleep but by the time I've tackled the stairgates and bedroom door he is usually awake. I pop him in his cot in my bedroom, wind up the mobile and turn on the projector (yes they do clash) and pop him down. Sometimes he drops off quickly and quietly but other times he wakes and whinges. If he cries properly (rather than testing me) I take him out, cuddle him, give him a kiss and pop him back in.

Ct- does Isaac settle ok in the day?
Earlier on it literally took me half hr to get him to sleep, he is clearly tired but just won't give in and nothing seems to calm him, I think if I just put him down he would just cry and cry!! I got a bit stressed so handed him tO dp (who looked at me gone out like what am I supposed to do!!) and I had to walk out the room I felt so stressed!! Gave it 5mins and came back and he was still screaming so took him off dp and finally after alot of rocking a ssshhh-ing noises he finally fell asleep!!
It is getting more and more stressful every day I don't no what has changed, he has certainly got his own personality coming through!!! Arches his back and everything, just won't give in!! ;)
Jasper we usually do bath (every other day) then final bottle around 9 then bum change and then up to bed, and usually he settles fine (not like in the day ;)) occasionally he whinges to himself but soon dozes off!! ;)

It's harder in the day but he usually goes down after a feed so is already dropping off. I can tell when he is tired and get him down then. If he isn't already asleep he may whingea bit but I do the same as at night, i.e. pick him up and put him down again. He doesn't have a mobile downstairs but I put a toy in for him to look at and he usually chats to it for a bit then drops off.

Does your dh do the same?
Dp just let's him sleep on him and it really annoys me because he is getting to used to being held while he's asleep but no matters how many times I tell dp he doesn't!!! And it takes me all week to break it then come the weekend he is doing it again and im back to square one!!!

Ofsted reports are definitely worth looking at but you may just know which one feels right when you visit them. I went to one and I knew straight away I didn't like it but I politely looked round! : D I would ask what their staff to child ratio is for each age group, what ages are the children grouped in to and when do they move rooms, is it based on age or when they are ready for the change, do they provide food, if so ask to see the menu, do they provide nappies etc, how much do they charge and how long is this set for can you expect it to go up, fire rpocedures, sickness policy, holiday allowance ( do you have to pay when on holiday), do they have any annual shut downs, do they accept childcare vouchers if that is how you choose to pay, how do they tell you about your LO's day, how many nappy changes what they ate etc, do they go on any visits ( to the park or for walks), is there lots of outside space, how often do they go out, sessions time ( can you drop off and pick up at any time or does it have to be on the hour for example). What are the sleeping arrangements particularly for the babies, is it a seperate darkened room, are they flexible with your LO's routine or do will they have to fit in to a set routine.... I will let you know if I think of anything else!!!!x

Hi hope everyone is good!!!

My LO has sort of got into a routine of going a few days without having a poo, i spoke to the HV about this and she said it is normal sme babies dont. he goes 3-4 days without having one, but sometimes after a feed i not sure wetdher he is in pain and it is starting to worry me. HV said that if i am concerned that he may be constipated to give he some coled boiled water, i gave him last time 30 mls twice in a day and he pooed the next day. Is this normal or is this something i should be going to see the GP about .

hi girls

Taffycaz - my health visitor told me the same thing they can go 3-4 days without a poo however my baby is impossable to deal with if he's constipated he's really unsettled and appears to be in a lot of pain, he had been given gaviscon for reflux which made him constipated which i stopped and since then he has went once a day, i tried the cooled boiled water which made him go within an hour but then he started to realise it wasn't food and would just spit it back out :)

had baby 6 week check up today and brought up the constantly being sick issue, although it is slighly better and we have had a lot less projectile vomit he can still be bringing sick up 2 hours after he has been fed, no further forward sadly just told it was normal and as long as it wasn't constantly projectile vomit and he was gaining weight they wouldn't do anything.

Hope your all well

Taffy my baby goes every 3 or 4 days and isn't constipated or bothered by it.

I have read that it is quite normal for BF to go several days between but that FF babies tend to go every day and will suffer more from tummy ache if they don't. I suppose they are all different though just like adults.

Thanks for info on nurseries, jasper thanks for the questions, some of them I never even thought of :thumbsup:
Taffy, I was also told bf babies can go days without having a dirty nappy and its completly normal. If you feel your lo is in pain with it then i'd see your gp for some advice. Mine recommended fresh orange juice and cooled boiled water xxx

Hello!
Thanks for the info on nurseries, really helped me too!

Taffy as the others have said bf babies often don't poo for days, it's cos it's so easily digestible that there's little waste at the other end!! And yes babies are so very different, I have bf my two, they've had the same food at the same time yet one would poo every 3rd day the other would poo with every feed! Beat that for different!! Don't worry as long as there are wet nappies each change and there is poo once a week at least then you're all doing fine, and just think you're saving the trauma of a daily pooey mess! It's only been since solids started at 6months and a routine has started that we've had fewer blowouts and a more daily schedule, ah all this to look forward to!

Taffy, i would just keep up the cooled boiled water if it helps. If the poo gets more regular and less constipated then you could just cut this down. It has been hotter again lately, but i think that is about to end!! Are you bf or formula feeding? My DS went for lots of poos every day and boy they were explosive ones too :snigger: But even now at 2, if he doesnt go in the day, then he is disturbed at night. If i think he hasn't drunk enough water in teh day i add a bit of water to his milk in the evening.

I am just formula feeding now the exspressing was getting to much for me and my milk supply was reducing so decided to go over to formaula. HV said I was worrying over nothing and that he is completly fine as his poo is not hard and still soft it is just the way he is and he has plenty of wet nappies. So feel better about this now and not so worried, he has been a lot more settled the last couple of days and have been getting him a routine durring the day and sleeping more as I think that he just tires himself out and fights again goign to sleep and then gets over tired. Been spending more time getting him to nap and he seems to have benefited from it so will keep on with this.

Hi ladies

The fitness class sounds like a good idea! I'm planning on getting back down to the gym in a couple of weeks - I always planned on an October restart to the fitness regime, and having discovered today I have started gaining weight, I think I need to make sure I stay on schedule! I've increased the walking I am doing each day, so slowly starting to build back up again. I have no core strength at the moment - can't even sit up in bed without rolling over first, so really need to get on with it! Its been ten weeks now, so everything should be settled enough to start exercising I think.

I took DD to her first swimming session over the weekend, with a baby swimming group - she seemed to enjoy it, and actually fell asleep in the water a couple of times during the session! The warm water and relaxing swishing and gliding just sent her right off - its good that she was so relaxed in the water :)

We are still BFing, with just the one FF last thing at night. We haven't got a routine as such, but she is tending to drop off by about 8 in the evening, in her moses basket downstairs with us, we wake her for the feed at about 10 or 10.30 (or she wakes up herself demanding food, depending on when she was last fed), and that does her to anywhere between 4.30 and 5.30 in the morning. We need to start thinking about putting her upstairs in the evenings, but I'm not quite ready for that yet - probably another few weeks yet!

We're in the process of switching to reusable nappies, after a week using a trial pack, really impressed with them and a lot easier than I was expecting. We've had a couple of leaks, but I think it is just a question of getting the nappies to full absorbancy (takes several washed apparently) and gauging what level of booster is required, but they really do seem quite good. There is one type in the trial pack that we really like (the pack had about 8 different varieties to try - we've gone with Pop n Gro Onesize), and luckily I've found a load of new ones on ebay for a lot less than full price :) They should arrive in a day or two and we can get on with it properly.

Hope you are all doing well, and enjoying this last burst of summer weather :cheeers:

Caraz - i really want to get DS into swimming do they have to be a certain age?

Had quite a good night last night DS in bed for 9pm and that was him until 3am, quick feed and back in bed for 3.45pm and that was him until 7am then managed to cuddle him until his feed at 8am, what a difference a half decent sleep makes.

When do babies start sitting up themselves?

The sun is out but it's freezing have had to put the heating on :-(

I was told you have to wait till after your 6 week check to take them swimming, but I don't no how true that is!!
We waited till he was about 8 weeks, and he loved it!! Take him every week now and you can see him getting more and more confident in the water each week :)
All babies are different with the sitting up, my sisters little girl is 7months old and started sitting up on her own a few weeks ago!! :)

Hi!
Swimming love it! been going since they were 4 1/2 months and they love it, bit wary of being submerged DS more than DD but getting better each week. We take them to a kiddy pool locally for lessons and we all love it! I had a minor panic before the sessions started as I'd read it said minimum weight 10lbs and DS was still only 9.5. Anyway I hadn't read the rest of it that says either 6weeks old or 10lbs. The youngest baby is in the class before ours and he started at 7weeks!

Sitting up, well DD started pretty much dead on 6months just randomly plonked her sitting up on the floor surrounded by cushions and left her to it and 5minutes later she was still sat there playing so I think that's sitting up, 5mins is a long time when you're 6months old! In saying that DS can sit but never for more than half a minute as he has other stuff he has to do like roll around to where his sister and steal whatever she's playing with, can't do that sitting in one place!

I went to my local surestart today and really enjoyed it, DS was captivated by the lady running it, couldnt' keep his eyes off her, little flirt!

Hope everyone is well!

It's very quiet on here hope your all well.

DS had his first set of jags yesterday and we have had a terrable night, he had been sleeping from 9pm until 4am for about the last week and never cries during the night, last week he went down at 9pm as always but woke at 2am cying and that was him unsettled and cying on and off for the rest of the night :-( i hope it's just because of the jags and not going to start crying through the night, also he suffers from reflux and was always sick after his early moning feed, it wouldn't matter how long i winded him or sat up with him i could guarantee he would be sick at some point after i put him down but that had stopped a couple of weeks ago but the last two nights he has started doing it again :-( i sometimes feel it's 3 steps forward 2 steps back.

Hope your all well

Hi Sasha, Lily was very unsettled after her first jabs, had about 3 days where she just wanted to be held and wouldnt sleep and had a temperature then we soon got back to normal. I then dreaded her second jabs but she was fine with them ones. Have you seen gp about the reflux? Hope you have a better night tonight xxx
I cant believe Lily is now 20 weeks old, it doesnt seem possible lol. We've now put her in her own room in a cotbed and she loves all the space, she looks so small in there. Would liked to have kept her in our room but she has out grown her moses basket :-( she now weighs 16lb 6oz, is starting to roll on her side, still no giggles but lots of smiles and two teeth on the way xxx

Hiya

Kat - yeah went to doc and was given infant gaviscon, after a lot of chopping and changing with formula and gaviscon we settled on reflux milk on its own as the gaviscon made DS very constipated, it did seem to be working but the last few days we seem to be going backwards, the doc also said as long as it wasn't projectile at every feed and he was putting on weight he wouldn't give me anything else :-(

Going to attempt my first execise class tonight, i can feel the pain aleady lol

Sasha - It certainly can seem like you are take steps forward and then some back. Imogen had a cold and it took us a few weeks to get back on track! Good luck wth the exercise class. I have taken to going for power walks with DD in the carrier and DS ( who's 2.5 stone!) in the pushchair. That should burn a few calories!!!

Kat - I went to Ikea and got one of their basic cots to put in our room as Imogen is out growing the moses basket even though she is only just over 10lb she is very long!!! I dread having to put her in her own room, I love having her in wth us.

Last week after lots of tears (from me and Imogen) I gave her some formula. She has been unsettled in the evenings for weeks now and wants to feed constantly. We have been giving her 3-4oz late evening after BF and she has been sleeping roughly 9pm - 6am which has been great. At the weekend I decided to gradually stop BF this week but now that I have been getting more sleep I feel OK to keep going a bit longer. :thumbsup:

Well i'm totally exhausted today, DS slept from 9pm - 2am which is fine although he had been going until 4am but now after his feed he seems to be wide awake and it seems to take ages to settle him back down, i'm sure he would self settle but he is so noisy wriggles about, kicks his legs and has discovered he likes his fingers in his mouth to tell stories it's difficult to let him do that when hubby has to get up ealy for work, we have also noticed he seems to be sleeping and doing all this, he does settle eventually for maybe an hour then it starts all over again until we get up about 7am. After his feed at 8am he seems to be exhausted and will easily fall asleep in his chair for 2hrs, any suggestions on how to tackle this? He does seem to like his fingers/fist in his mouth more than a dummy these days and it's not hunger i don't think he gets 4 6oz bottles and one 7oz bottle a day.
Does anyone swaddle there baby at night instead of a sleeping bag?

Jasper, pleased you're getting more sleep. Are you carrying on with the bf? Xx
Sasha, I tried swaddling once but dd didnt like it, I've never tried a sleeping bag. My lo went through a phase of waking up early and taking ages to go back to sleep. I cant give you any advice other than just hang on in there, my lo finally realised the difference between daytime and night time just before 3 months. Does ds finish his bottles completly or does he leave a bit? The hospital told me that if baby drinks the whole bottle to add an extra oz. hope you manage to get a nap today xx

Yeah I am still BF.....for now! I think this weekend I am going to start introducing more formula. For the last week I have been giving 3 or 4oz of formula as a top up in the evening but I had to give her 5oz this afternoon as she just seems hungry all the time. Its starting to get to me and I promised myself i wouldn't get stressed about it.

I would say the same that, if he is draining the bottles add another oz. Imogen also went through a phase of being awake for long periods at night, I think they just grow out of it eventually.

Hope everyone else iswell.x

Has anyone ever used a swaddle pod? Thinking of using one for DS during the night as he loves to wiggle about so much and eat his fingers but not sure if he's getting a bit old for it when i have always used sleeping bags, he does love to get swaddled when he's tired but not sure how he will react being swaddled for the night.

Have a nice day
