Kissys you have my sympathies - have had excruciating sore boob for a few days, usually can get rid of blocked ducts but this ones getting worse and now have big red patch sad - trip to doctors tomorrow if no better.

LO will only fall asleep lately with my boob in her mouth. Am too tired to fight this.

Good luck everyone for lots of sleep tonight.

PetiteRaleuse Thu 10-Jan-13 21:11:15

Hmm can't think of anything to do with handbags. Shall ask DH when he's finished getting DD1 to sleep. Have her nap routine down pat but she's so challenging naughty in the evenings.

StuntNun Thu 10-Jan-13 21:42:15

Tits yy to the explosive poos one in the bath yesterday but you don't need to know that and also yy to the two annoying older kids but it was DS1's birthday today so they had an excuse for being so excitable and disobedient.

Detective your DF sounds like a right a-hole, it's awful when you can't even count on your parents.

ValiumQueen Thu 10-Jan-13 21:44:03

One poxy hour. I would have thought 5oz would have bought me more than a poxy hour! He is feeding with the same voraciousness. Plus there is poo all over babybjorn and his clothes as DH did not notice a poo. Better than nowt I guess!

Belgrano Thu 10-Jan-13 21:45:39

Hi ladies. No sleep routine to speak of here. Fat baby though so something's working ok! She's had four colds now, poor possum, and I've had three blocked ducts (god bless cabbage leaves and hot baths) and one bout of mastitis. Apart from that we are doing ok. Christmas saw far too much illness from other DCs and generally I'm looking forward to summer for that reason. Feeling out of the loop-sorry for radio silence. Hope you're all ok.

Dixiebell Thu 10-Jan-13 21:49:07

detective , ooh yes, could u link to the Next suits? I've tried looking on eBay, but maybe not searching the right words?

Dixiebell Thu 10-Jan-13 21:54:50

Ah, just caught up with thread, and seen offers to send me spotty outfits from toomany and horsey . Thanks both, you are kind! I'll end up with a whole collection of spotty clothes won't I?! Anyway, I've ordered the bandana bib now, so don't worry but thanks muchly for the offers.

TheDetective Thu 10-Jan-13 22:00:45


What size do you need? Am presuming this size but I have some in my watch list up to 1 month (10lb)

Evilwater Thu 10-Jan-13 22:17:34

Can't believe it. P is being a dick, I'm at my mums house as I'm going to kill him.
N was crying and he came down and told me, I was cooking dinner at the time and he refused to cook or look after n. p solution to the problem is he will get the MIL to look after N, while I cook. no biggie as I thought he was still working but no, he went upstairs to play on his computer as his mum and I work.
I was not happy about this, so finished the meal quickly and took over from his mum. An hour passed and he didn't even pop his head around to let me have my meal. I poped N in the car to calm him, and as I'm doing so p said " I don't care if you crash and kill both of you"

So not happy,
In my I phone.

Evilwater Thu 10-Jan-13 22:20:46

Also he's not txted or rang me. Jerk

StuntNun Thu 10-Jan-13 22:22:27

What's his problem Evil? Why would he be so nasty to you?

pikz Thu 10-Jan-13 22:22:40

Evil are you ok? Think you and P need serious words. That is very unpleasant hmm

LO is a terror. I had him all day and then at 10.15 DP says I'll take him you get into bed and LO promptly goes into a deep sleep. Did the same yesterday. Clearly it's just me!

Evilwater Thu 10-Jan-13 22:27:42

His whole life it has been his mum and him.
Now there is me and his son. Sometimes I feel second rate to her, it's ok for me and his son to leave but not her. He also has OCD which doesn't help.
Here's hoping things are better in the morning.

pikz Thu 10-Jan-13 22:29:07

VQ hope you are doing alright after your meltdowns. If it makes you feel any better L has drained 11oz in 2.5 hours, 5 of which were mixed as I was trying to see if it helped him feel fuller for longer. No such luck!

Growth spurts r us over here at the moment. He is already 91st percentile for length and head so god knows how big he will end up. No wonder I'm knackered and finding it hard to keep up with his food demands!

TheDetective Thu 10-Jan-13 22:50:25

Oh my word Evil what an absolutely awful thing to say. I suspect he is feeling the strain as you are, the evenings are clearly hard on you at the moment. Not that it is any excuse for saying something so disgusting. But maybe he needs to tell you how he is feeling, not bottling it up and then coming out with something like that.

He probably doesn't even realise how awful he has been.

I have another man who prioritises his computer over his son. I am hoping he learns that the computer comes when he has time, not when he makes that time above everything else. His mum has told him the same, so he knows it is his issue, not me being unreasonable.

I hope you are okay. Twatting men eh?

TheDetective Thu 10-Jan-13 22:53:16

Just had a proud mummy moment! Oscar was on my lap, playing with his mirror (christmas present off DS1!). It has a little ball on it that you have to knock quite strongly to get a tune from it. Well he knew that you needed to hit it. He just had to get his hand to the damn thing! Well he bloody well did it! Over and over! Filmed him doing it 3 times! It kept him occupied for ages too!

Our babies are growing up!! <Sob>

Sophiathesnowfairy Thu 10-Jan-13 22:54:43

That's a terrible terrible thing to say * evil* I can't imagine how you must feel.

vq hope you are snoozing

mm hope mr mummy is walking home!

Evilwater Thu 10-Jan-13 22:59:15

He still hasn't txted. Should I txt him we are ok?
Thanks for all your Kind words.

PetiteRaleuse Thu 10-Jan-13 23:03:24

Sorry to hear your P is being a twat. No, I wouldn't text him. And if he doesn't apologise of his own accord I would wait til at least tomorrow and demand an apology. He has to realise that saying shit like that is not only unacceptablebut a terrible example of disrespect to his son and his mother. I'm sure he didn't mean it but that is not the point.

kirrinIsland Thu 10-Jan-13 23:07:48

That's awful evil I wouldn't be texting him, no.

mm I'd like to think I'd make him walk, but I probably wouldn't. I'd be really pissed off though.

VQ hope you get some sleep soon.

GTbaby Thu 10-Jan-13 23:15:56

Aww evil that's such a horrible thing to hear. hmm Big hugs n hope he comes grovelling soon x

Sophiathesnowfairy Thu 10-Jan-13 23:22:08

I wouldn't text till. Tomorrow evil he needs to realise he said a terrible thing. Xx

TheDetective Thu 10-Jan-13 23:34:26

No, don't text him Evil. Make him do the running. Trust me on this one..... smile

KissysUnderTheMisteltoe Thu 10-Jan-13 23:43:15

Blimey evil that's a terrible thing for him to have said, I hope he makes a grovelling apology. Definitely don't text him, let him sweat

TheDetective Thu 10-Jan-13 23:45:27

I just mentioned about the Tommee Tippee sterilising wipes on fb, I thought I would mention them on here to see if anyone else had used them?

They are for wiping dummies when out. We were going to get a cheap wide neck bottle and take some sterilising fluid out with us for those dummy emergencies where they throw the last one in the mud or the floor of the car yes, I'm looking at you Oscar resorting in you taking a bottle teat and a muslin cloth, and shoving said cloth in the teat, and shoving said invention in to their mouth. Not that we had to do that. Errrr, nope...! grin

We always take 3/4 out with us, but usually by the time we are home, we are on our last one! He always drops the buggers, but he uses them the most away from home. He only has them to settle to sleep at home (and not every sleep!) but when out they keep him soothed.

So I wanted a solution, and while looking for a cheap bottle, found the wipes.

I found this review of them. But does anyone else know much before we try them out?
