Thought we should get a new thread before the night shift wink

ISpyPlumPie Sat 13-Apr-13 19:44:11

Also hope you get your heating sorted soon IsThat - nothing worse than being cold sad.

Poor ds1 ISpy sad maybe it will take a few accidents for him to realise it doesn't hurt?

Oh I just re read hopefully it won't last long. Clever N for rolling over smile

Ds really wants to sit up he's staring to try to sit up in his bouncer but that's currently how I get him to nap, what am I going to do?!

Justsomehappygirl Sat 13-Apr-13 21:01:08

Hello! New to MN. Baba is 15 weeks- just made it into 2012. Currently he is fast asleep on my chest, don't know how long that'll last. smile

Welcome justsome smile

Better night here so far. Ds went down perfectly at ten to seven and STAYED ASLEEP! He's just stirred now but I've got him back to sleep sucking my finger, my theory being he will be more hungry at next wake up and hopefully sleep a bit longer after a good feed yeah right

WLmum Sat 13-Apr-13 21:17:34

spotty I would be furious! I would also be doing a bit of a tally so when you've stopped feeding you can get some days/nights out and uninterrupted baths. I know money can be an issue so can you ask for vouchers or money towards treat days/nights (for YOU not family) to use when you're ready?

Poor big little ispy

isthat our boiler broke last dec when it was snowing. You'd be surprised how much difference even a small oil filled radiator makes - ours was cheap from tesco - have you got a late opening one dp could pop to?

Welcome just

IsThatTrue Sat 13-Apr-13 21:47:06

Happy birthday barbeasty

Welcome justsome

Our boiler turns off all the time, we're used to it. The landlords use a plumbing company who can't work out what's wrong with it but insist it doesn't need replacing. I'm hoping thesis lords get bored of having to keep paying call out charges and just get a new boiler!

Dais not happy because of this cold!hecantbreathe through his nose poor thing!

WeeJo08 Sat 13-Apr-13 22:27:28

I haven't posted in ages so I feel awful that I am posting now just to be down but having a pretty poor time this weekend! Dad admitted to hospital yesterday, my Grannie is now really ill with a similar thing & think she'll be admitted tonight, my husband is flying back from Chicago tonight and I wish he was just here now and I'm (probably really selfishly) so scared that this terrible gastric flu that my Dad & Grannie have will make DD, DH, my Mum or me really sick too. I'm so sorry to come on & be such a downer - it probably seems very minor stuff to be complaining about! I hope everyone is doing well and babies are thriving xx

ISpyPlumPie Sat 13-Apr-13 22:33:04

Oh Weejo that sounds awful. Hope your Dad and Grannie both make speedy recoveries and that no-one else catches it.

How is your LO doing?

Equimum Sat 13-Apr-13 22:39:08

isthat hope your boiler get fixed soon and that your duvet dried out ok.

Welcome justsome. My little boy is 15 weeks too - well, he will be tomorrow. Scary how quickly the weeks are flying by!

DS is currently gurgling in cot. He doesn't settle in the evenings so usually just comes to bed when we do. Normally he goes down pretty quickly. But he had a long, late nap today, so we'll see!

WeeJo08 Sat 13-Apr-13 22:40:28

She's great, thank you smile Rolled for the first time last week & has started reaching for stuff now (mostly my hair but toys too...sometimes!) Sleeping very well, about 11 hours a night. Don't like to say too much though, in case it changes overnight!

What about your LO?

ISpyPlumPie Sat 13-Apr-13 22:55:40

He's doing really well too - rolling, giggling and getting teeth. Not quite cracked the sleeping yet though!

WeeJo08 Sat 13-Apr-13 23:11:26

The giggling is so much fun, isn't it? grin

IsThatTrue Sat 13-Apr-13 23:24:18

Have just spent 3 hrs, rocking, shushing, feeding, calpoling, teething ringing poor DS who is really not himself at all! He's having a tough time breathing, so his feeding is off I think.

Hate hate hate it when they're ill and you can't fix them!

Welcome back weejo sorry to hear about your family illnesses. I hope everyone gets better soon!

halestone Sat 13-Apr-13 23:26:56

Welcome Just.

Welcome Weejo sorry your having a shitty time. Hope the gastroflu leaves as quickly as its come in.

Ski and isthat hope your ok tonight and its not to cold for you tonight.

ISpy hope your DS feels better soon. It must be horrible for him to be scared of weeing.

And sorry everyone is having such shitty times with DP's. I genuinely don't understand how they think they can still act like they did pre-baby.

I gave H her first taste of baby rice today to see if she was ready. I was too scared to actually put a spoonful in her mouth so sort of coated the spoon instead. She pulled some pretty interesting faces while licking the spoon. She kept grabbing the spoon off me so think she likes it. Also shes started grabbing her bottle and feeding herself the last week or so but tonight DP put her bottle on the couch whilst winding her and she leant forward and put her mouth round the teat and tried to drink it. It was hilarious. I've really noticed huge differences this week in her like she proper giggle for ages when she finds something funny we even managed to get her on video grin

MaMaPo Sat 13-Apr-13 23:32:06

Hello all: welcome to justsome, welcome back weejo and sorry to hear of family illness! I hope your other half gets back soon to look after you and help out.

A successful night here - my husband and I left little C with a babysitter (a friend of ours) and went to the theatre and out for a drink. Out from 7-11pm and she was fine, fast asleep all the way through. Am glad, as she had a tricky bedtime and was awake when we left. But apparently she slept fine, took the bottle fine (while asleep) and is still asleep now. I'm about to join her!

It was great to have a night out - we saw The Book of Mormon (who here has tickets - seconds?) and it was just great. I didn't worry or think about little C, and feel like an adult again. Now that I realise just what you can get done in an evening, I'll go out a lot more and leave the baby with my husband or a babysitter.

But now, I'm tired. Off to bed. Fingers crossed little C decides she doesn't need to feed until 3am.

Night all!

Secondsop Sat 13-Apr-13 23:51:54

Hello, yes it is me mamapo who has Book of Mormon tickets. We'll leave Z with my mum that evening. (Well, leave my mum with Z).

Hello to the new people and the returners (sorry I haven't kept track of names).

I just settled Z in the cot while I went downstairs and did a couple of short errands (a late night snack for me to eat in bed now DH is away smile , putting stuff in the dryer, getting his bottles and cartons together for the night / morning) and he stayed asleep without crying. He wouldn't stay asleep for even a minute on the sofa (left in a safe position) earlier while I went to the loo. Whilst that was annoying, it has made me hopeful that he is now recognising cot time as sleepy quiet time without anybody holding him or being in the same room. Hopefully when my husband is back and we've got a monitor, we'll get a bit of the evening back. it is bittersweet as I do love cuddling Z on the sofa, but I'm conscious that he's clearly not sleeping as deeply there as he wakes as soon as he doesn't feel an arm around him.

darn caught up a bit on last thread and posted there, and now 4 pages here?!

just quickly - hales hope lo better? if not those can be kidney infection symptoms - might be worth checking out.

2blessed Sun 14-Apr-13 04:14:22

Hope all mum's and lo's are having good sleeps.

I woke up to express a bottle, then ds woke up for a snack-feed so we're both snuggled up in bed with dp snoring next to us.
envy at book of mormon tickets. Declared to dp that I want to go for my birthday and he replies "if you can get a ticket". Yeah, I know thats why I'm saying it now!

Now I know this is nothing new but I am so in love with my ds. Absolutely loving watching him grow and develop - giggles and reaching for toys here too! I know I've got a few months of mat leave left but I don't want to go back to work. Think I need to take playing the lottery more seriously! smile

MaMaPo Sun 14-Apr-13 05:32:03

I hope you do gets tickets 2blessed - it was completely great. won't mention that I got my tickets on preorder back in September

SkiBunnnnny Sun 14-Apr-13 06:17:16

Went to a friends for some food and chat tonight. Left home around 7.30 sure that DS was pretty much ready to go to sleep for the night. Come home at 9.30, still awake. And DH had tried to feed him expressed milk from an unsterilised bottle with the teat not properly in. Both asleep now (10.15pm) thank goodness, maybe this later bedtime will mean longer until first feed...? <hopeful>

At least he tried ski! grin

Sorry you're having a rough time WeeJo hope everyone recovers soon.

Off to peppa pig world today. We're not telling dd can't wait to see her face smile

WeeJo08 Sun 14-Apr-13 07:43:27

Thank you for your messages, ladies. Dad doing much better & Grannie has got a good night's sleep which will hopefully make all the difference. Hubby has landed & should be home within half an hour. DD just awake so lying here listening to her blow bubbles & babble grin

Enjoy Peppa Pig, Spotty! smile

utopian99 Sun 14-Apr-13 09:14:33

Sleep regression well and truly here with us but I think I'm dealing with it better than when he was newborn and it was all a shock (and giggles and smiles help no end). Dh took him for a bounce last night which helped and has him now while I have a shower to feel more human.

On a plus note he rolled on Friday! Front to back (can't remember which is more common first time.) He looked a bit surprised that he'd managed as he's been trying for ages, poor sweet thing.

Equimum Sun 14-Apr-13 10:04:29

Weejo I hopeDH is back with you now and that your dad and Grannie are improving. Fx nobody else gets it - thinking of you.

Mama glad you had a lovely time and that little C was perfectly behaved

Utopian sorry to hear about sleep regression ....hopefully it'll be over soon.

Was planning to have a lie-in this morning while DH got up with DS, but LO had other ideas and screamed until he was brought back upstairs. He's now zonked in bed next to me.
