Yes, we've got the nuk bottles, I even bought latex teats as someone somewhere said something about them working for them! However, this morning she did take a few small sucks, and even swallowed a bit of milk before dribbling the rest out of the side of her mouth! Looking at the bottle now - I think a whole ounce is missing (nearly) and the bib and cloth were a lot less wet! I am not sure how I am going to cope over half term as this mornings palaver went on till about 11, although I suppose I won't have the school run to do (and car to take to garage, and playgroup to set up) like I did this morning! Note to dd MUMMY WILL WIN. smile If I was a witch though, I could put a spell on her. Hmph.envy

Number 3 Lemony!!!! Not round here, I am already ancient! Good luck. No queue jumping though, FairyG is next in line.

Not winning currently. sad

Still feeding at 17 months here. Kind of want to quit but not enough to do anything about it..

Number 3 is not completely written off but not really in the running. I am getting keener DH is getting less keen.

UmBongo Fri 26-Oct-12 13:22:29

Am winning with the running though, just done w4r1 and it didn't rain on me. Hooray.

I wouldn't mind carrying on feeding, but I am feeding every night from about 7.30 til 9.30 with a short break in the middle for a nappy change and pyjamaring and changing boob. I want my evenings back. Sorry.

HalleLouja Fri 26-Oct-12 13:39:32

Well done with the running. I am doing my last run tonight.

You don't need to be sorry. Its all just a blur and DD loves milk and this is probably my last baby. It does get better but its personal choice and 6 months is far more than the average joe.

HalleLouja Thu 01-Nov-12 21:27:31

Am officially a couch to 5k graduate grin. Haven't got to 5k running but can run for 30 minutes and not a million miles off.

Congratulations Lou! Well done you! I have finished week 4 and have a sore heel. Not sure if I am going straight into week 5, may have to give it a few extra days off. Pants.

Dd has now got to the stage this morning where she is willing to tolerate the teat in her mouth, but I think we are a long way from her working out to actually suck and swallow the sodding milk! (I am not really getting anywhere am I?)

HalleLouja Fri 02-Nov-12 08:48:52

I never had the patience. Can't you try her on a cup? Some people avoid bottles and go straight to cups. Dd loves cups as that is what DS drinks out of. she splutters the milk out of her milk when I give her a cup of milk. She will take milk from cups when I am not around and has done since 9 months when she went to nursery.

HalleLouja Fri 02-Nov-12 08:50:37

Maybe try expressed milk to begin with as that is what she is used to. I used to express milk as she drank that better than formula and then drank cows milk at nursery when she was 11 months and I couldn't be arsed to express.

HalleLouja Fri 09-Nov-12 08:28:06

Anyone there???

UmBongo Thu 15-Nov-12 12:43:42

Yoo- hoo! I'm here! I have a very sore heel, my doctor friend says it is Plantar Fasciitis - which I think is Latin for "Oh bugger that foot hurts" So running is off.

However dd [whispers] is drinking from a bottle!!!!! I even got a friend to come round after school drop off to give her a bottle and she still took 5oz. 3 weeks. But I think I may have won!

Goes off shouting Fairy, Fairy, Fairy. Has she buggered orf for some sunshine?

HalleLouja Thu 22-Nov-12 17:09:03

Well done baby fivealive!

HalleLouja Mon 03-Dec-12 11:58:19

Fairygodmother1 Tue 11-Dec-12 19:15:43

Nope - life took over!
Still not talking to my brother & his family. The baby has been born & her name sounds like a french prostitute is lovely! grin
I've quit my job too as they treated me like shit! I'm not the only one leaving

HalleLouja Tue 11-Dec-12 20:09:39

Hugs sweetie. That sounds like crap.

Am interested in what your twunt of a brother called his DD. Amelie?

Fairygodmother1 Tue 11-Dec-12 20:15:34

Lol. Think popular song by kinks about a transvestite & double barreled with Frank sinatra's ex's first name... wink

HalleLouja Tue 11-Dec-12 20:20:59

My grandma's nickname was the first one her real name was Theodora shock.

Have just googled FS and he had a lot of wives but think I know the one you mean.

Fairygodmother1 Tue 11-Dec-12 20:44:48

The actress one

HalleLouja Fri 14-Dec-12 13:06:21

Two were actresses I thought. (I have googled to see).

Fairygodmother1 Fri 14-Dec-12 19:21:00

1951-57 marriage! Yeah I googled to work out who she was cos I knew her name.

5 days left at work then a new adventure!

HalleLouja Fri 14-Dec-12 20:52:04

Have you got a new job? Both of the actresses have names which are quite popular - so could have been either.

Fairygodmother1 Sat 15-Dec-12 07:16:38

Nope, just gonna suck it see what's out there. Might do some temp work until my dream career appears!

HalleLouja Sat 15-Dec-12 10:21:18
