notsonervous why they think your Dd a boy? I make the mistake of calling a baby a boy at mums and babies when I went as a bump!
pennielane that your real name was a girl on toddlers and tiaras called that anyone seen that?

zcos Fri 25-Jan-13 13:04:14

mm1 how old is Matilda? what outfits does she wear in the day?

zcos Fri 25-Jan-13 13:07:24

stolen baby discussion on loose women ... would you relinquish baby to others are you possesive. they said father was baby sitting the baby you can't baby sit your own child!!

Zcos she'll be 8 weeks on Monday shock (omg, just realised my baby's nearly 2 months!!) At the moment she's still in 0-3 months (just). We were convinced she was a boy so most of her clothes in this size are unisex (or were boyish so have been passed onto YW 's DS!) so she mainly wears sleepsuits or neutral tshirt and jogger combos. She has lots of lovely girly outfits (dresses and such like) in 3-6 months though!

Re the bedtime routine, I make a point of changing her sleepsuit, even if she's already wearing one, so she associates day/night. Don't know if it's making much difference. I also like her to wear her nicer sleepsuits during the day and boring plain ones at night.

Will post a photo on the fb group of a typical tilly day outfit.

zcos Fri 25-Jan-13 13:22:15

ah ... I don't have many 0-3 day outfits couple of Denham dresses ... thought you meant she always wears sleep suits by night other outfits in day I don't have enough day outfits also is stupid but if she has nice dress or something I want to keep it for when we actually go out.
my d is 8 weeks tues no sign of cluster feed in night stopping 7.30 -12.30 last night!

zcos Fri 25-Jan-13 13:24:07

so mm1 your Tilly was the day before my d what time we could have been in labour at same point I know one born every min but this still takes me aback!

MissMummy1 Fri 25-Jan-13 13:27:20

When she moves up to the next size she'll have more than enough outfits to wear a different one every day! In fact, I doubt she's going to get to wear them all sad

She was born at 0822. I was in labour for 29.5 hours....!

zcos Fri 25-Jan-13 13:33:48

Aw my d was 6.07 the next morn ...
yeah mine has loads 3-6 I have bought a few dresses in that size and size up cos I thought she was going to be a boy too and when it clicked she would be wearing dresses I went a bit crazy will be good for quick changes smile and I'm hoping we do have a summer so can wear dresses. most of her gifts have been sleep suits though!

zcos Fri 25-Jan-13 13:36:24

any other tips mm1 or anyone else to stop the cluster feeds or shall I just carry on as is and let dd stop on her own? she is wide awake at mo and been napping past 4 days this time...just when I think she has settled into some pattern that I can predict she turns it on her head!!

MadamGazelleIsMyMum Fri 25-Jan-13 13:53:03

blonder, I had noticed that GT had been quiet - maybe she is faithfully following her policy! I suspect that unless there is a strict rationing, the threads will keep going at pace.

zcos Fri 25-Jan-13 13:54:05

if there is rationing won't the messages just get bigger and bigger?

R goes in his grow bag and gets fed in bed when it's sleep time - afternoon nap or bed. Morning nap is in the sling.

I've been tipped off (by someone involved in the recruitment process) about a 3 day a week job. It's teaching - i don't have a PGCE - but I'm well capable as it's a specialist subject (the one my undergrad degree is in). I also have tonnes of sen experience which schools like. So i might be going out to work when R hits 5 months shock

Also, MIL has said she'd like yo take dp and i out to lunch for his birthday in a couple of weeks - without R. Not sure how i feel about that, bearing in mind we'd be taking 5yo dn so not exactly child free. My instincts are screaming WTActualFuck but she's lovely and has the best intentions. How do i get out of leaving him without being rude?!

Holds place

MissMummy1 Fri 25-Jan-13 14:30:19

Marking place

zcos Fri 25-Jan-13 16:36:39

purple ... I think I would just be honest and say you don't want to leave your r out she was mum and will understand you could always say you would rather stay with r and could say that they could go out without you "no you go" kind of thing sure she would then say no we can't possibly you and r come... hope that makes some kind of sense? master manipulater me!

zcos Fri 25-Jan-13 16:37:49

ps thanks mm1 will carry on soo hard not to compare you Lo to other people's.

Sophiathesnowfairy Fri 25-Jan-13 17:04:03

I always forget tummy time, no wonder he is crap at it.

ValiumQueen Fri 25-Jan-13 17:05:07

Cluster feeding is not something you can avoid. It is integral to increasing supply.

I hail from Portsmouth. Hampshire Hog.

Sophiathesnowfairy Fri 25-Jan-13 17:07:00

Oh, I went to get O weighed yesterday and this HV kept telling the lady in front of me to use hungry baby milk

!!!!!!!NO!!!!!!!!

I wanted to scream

CONSTIPATION WARNING

But I didn't because I am polite.

NotSoNervous Fri 25-Jan-13 17:40:11

Sorry pass sad did I steal finishing the last thread from you?

NotSoNervous Fri 25-Jan-13 17:42:06

zcos I have no idea why she thought DD was a boy unless she was colour blind? Maybe?

purple if you don't want to leave your LO then just say so, I haven't left my Dd yet and I don't plan on anytime soon just because I don't want too ignores the fact that when I do I'll get so much pressure to leave her all the time when I don't want too

Passmethecrisps Fri 25-Jan-13 17:45:35
