Nope mine definitely isn't sleeping through yet, in fact I'm waiting for him to wake up around now for the first feed of the night sad

Not yet here either! I'm just doing the first feed of the night.

No sleeps here either. Been feeding fr the last hour and a half. Gah.

Feed no1 just finished. Hot water bottle warming cot ready for transfer.

No sleeping through here, just finished a feed.

We've just discovered mild in our room, where the baby sleeps, and I'm terrified this will harm her in some way. I'm going to wash it tmrw, but any ideas what else I should do? We've literally just had a damp proof coursing injected into the wall! Will it hurt her?

Lane81 Thu 10-Jan-13 02:50:55

Mold not mild-stupid phone!

No sleeping through really but just slept 5 hours which is technically sleeping through!

Lane81 Thu 10-Jan-13 07:09:49

My LO seems to be regressing, now waking every 3hrs (each feed still lasts an hour) hmm we were managing 4 hrs at one point. Argh!

Not sleeping through but a much better night, we also managed 5 hours 2-7am, yeah! gringrin

Nope. Not sleeping through in the literal sense but going from the late evening feed to somewhere between 6 and 7. Am happy with that. Feel a little bit more human.

Almost almost slept through last night. One off no doubt, but events conspired to get him in bed after a long feed from half 8ish to just gone 9, he was asleep, so put him in his basket.10mins later heard noise on the monitor, wind. So after winding & putting the dummy in and it coming out again a minute later for a while, he was asleep. At 11 I gave him a dream feed force feed because I was leaking & wouldn't be able to sleep like that, which he took really well & slept through until 5.30ish!!!

So technically he was sleeping from just before 10 I guess until 5.30, and I managed to get a good 5+hr block of sleep for a change!!! I would say I felt like a new woman but I've just dozed off on the sofa cuddling both DC...blush

Closest we've had to sleeping through last night, 6 hours! First time I've had that much sleep in one go in a long time!

Lane I would wash the mould off with a mild detergent, but I'd speak to the company who did the damp proof course for you if it's happened since that's been done. It won't hurt the baby if you clean it away regularly IMO

KissysUnderTheMisteltoe Thu 10-Jan-13 10:23:51

Sorry meant to add we get a bit of mould in the corner of our bedroom from condensation. We had 2 air bricks put in to try and stop it but it came back. Now we just clean it away each week and try and keep the room well ventilated

no sleeping through here either though we did get 10.30 til 3 which is a new record. Though he then played about from 4.30 ish til 6.30 at which point he had more food and then more again at 8.30. Obviously now he is sparko and I am doing dishes. Tired.com.

LO has been awake for 5 hours straight - although have finally managed to wrestle her into the sling and her eyes are rolling, so FC...haven't even been able to express this morning as she's been feeding non-stop and haven't been able to put her down for any length of time (5 mins earlier when cat did massive poo in his litter tray and for sake of our health that needed dealing with before crying baby).

Health visitor coming later so hopefully she'll be able to help hmm

Congrats all of you who are getting some sleep - I seem to have forgotten that we had a sleep marathon only a few nights ago shame the effects haven't lasted

Hello new thread.

I don't really want DS to sleep through yet - he needs to feed up and that's far more important.

He has been <whispers> fairly reliable for the last few weeks in having 4 hrs sleep from when we go to bed, then an hrs feed, then 2 more hrs and another feed. DH then takes him for an hr so I can usually get 6-7 hrs myself overall which I am very happy with.

We have been very lucky with no illness so far and his early colic passed at 6 wks so I feel for those struggling with reflux, bronch etc.

Hi - i'm just new to mumsnet, my little one is 11 days old and seems to think that night time is really day time... Has a feed about 11/12ish and is then awake right through to about 6/7am with a feed in between about 3am. Can't seem to settle him down for a sleep like I can during the day - any advice?

Sophiathesnowfairy Thu 10-Jan-13 11:09:23

chunky thanks for the reassurance. DS is 2.5. I kept going through Tuesday to find out if nursery thought it was worth perusing. He had a nasty poo accident and was crying for mummy. Which he has never done. Tis really upset me so we have gone back to nappies.

But the benefit of giving him a taster of it is he now hold himself when he has a wee and asks to go for a we. We never make it in time but he wasn't doing that before so I think we will do it slowly like that and give the cold turkey as miss till the summer.

Ha! Found you all! I guess reading posts while horrifically sleep deprived in the early hours means I did not notice Stunt posting the link to the new thread :s

KissysUnderTheMisteltoe Thu 10-Jan-13 11:19:48

LO is definitely making up for the 6 hours between feeds over night - feed and screamathon going on in the kissy household

Have just eaten zillions half a packet of biscuits for breakfast blush

Dixiebell Thu 10-Jan-13 11:34:04

Not sleeping through here! 6 weeks tomorrow. 5 hours maximum so far...

Okay, I need help! Teddy and DS1 have been invited to their cousin's birthday party, the theme is polka dots. Loads of girl polka dot clothes, but for the life of me I can't find anything for either boy to wear. Want a spotty sleepsuit or some such, and a t-shirt or shirt for DS1 who is 2.3. Found a couple of sleepsuits online, but all £15+, and isn't that a bit pricey? I normally buy a pack of three from Sainsbury's for under a tenner! And I can't find a spotty boy's t-shirt or shirt anywhere. Ideas anyone? Or if I can't find anything, how else can we go along with the theme? I might have to do stripes instead..!!
