My left boob is my slow boob too! With DD1 she got so fed up of it from 8 months onm she refused to have anything at all from it... I ended up very wonky until she stopped bf at a year hmm

Angielka- your MIL sounds exactly like mine! I've given up cooking when she's here as she never likes anything I make! We just get takeaway now.

On a positive note DS settled much better last night. Feeds at 7,11, 3 and 6. He grizzled a lot at other times so I was still awake a lot but it was a definite improvement!

Hi all. Is anyones little one still in a moses basket? DS is starting to look a bit big in his now, especially as he likes to fling his arms around now... What age/ size should they go into cotbed, which is the next step for him, but will mean him going in his own room. :-(

octanegirl Mon 15-Apr-13 18:37:42

Bunny try a crib. I have a John Lewis troll crib that butts up right next to the bed. I reckon he'll ok in that for another couple of months. I bought a cotbed but it's in his room and I don't want him to move yet either.

bunny i usually move them when they seem uncomfortably big for the moses basket (for my older dc that was about 6-8 weeks) this is the first time we've had a crib and its lasted mych longer. Thought it might be even longer but she has completly caught up weight wise after her early arrival pig

Angielka Mon 15-Apr-13 18:57:11

We've got Molly in a cot but she's crammed between our bed and the window... it's tricky at this point isn't it. She's way too big for the moses basket but looks tiny in the cot. The cribs sound like a good plan for those who can't fit a cot in their bedroom. I'm not ready for Molly to move out just yet!

Alilog my MIL insisted on making DD1's tea this evening and DD1 (who eats everything) turned her nose up at it. I know it's mean but I could have hugged her for that.

Alilog Mon 15-Apr-13 21:17:27

That's hilarious! Hooray for the kids!

Woo i just had a lye in (lie-in?) just spent the morning dozing in bed and if he grumbled i shuved a nipple in his mouth grin

Bailey is still in his Moses but I reckon he's only got a couple more weeks in it at best. He's just going straight into his cotbed in his room after although he does look ridiculously small in it! He's currently sleeping around 10-5 give or take so hoping he'll be going slightly longer when he's on his own.

Today, if it's not coming out one end, it's coming out the other... T-shirt covered in sick and just changed a dirty nappy to have another one 5 mins later...

We put S width ways in her cot bed at 5 weeks; she's almost too tall for that now though! Also find she rotates round in the night!

Found you!

Hope everyone is well!

I'm gutted - c's tongue tie has regrown. sad

I'm now back to shitting myself about weight gain, poor latch and wet nappies. Doesn't help she's had one properly wet nappy today, two mega poo ones, though.

Argh.

Angielka Tue 16-Apr-13 16:48:59

Oh Bunty that's rubbish sad do you now have to get it snipped again?

angie I don't know if I can do it to her again. Second time was traumatic for all involved sad I'm going to take her to be weighed this week I think and make sure she's still gaining. If so I'll leave it. If not, I'll have to think about going for number three which terrifies me.

Meringue33 Tue 16-Apr-13 17:34:08

Ah sorry to hear that Bunty. Hopefully she is now big enough she would let you know vocally if she wasn't getting enough food?

Relieved to know its not just me thinking its time for him to go in own room. I am really paranoid about it but its obvious we will all get more sleep, including LO. I know his cry always wakes me and we have an Angelcare monitor...

She is definitely vocal, meringue! I think you're right tbh. But the old worries die hard I think.

Meringue33 Tue 16-Apr-13 17:37:23

Anyone got any tips at all for nap time? The old fail safe pram even failed today, he just cried and cried. Ended up feeding to sleep and holding him for an hour and a half. I suppose there are worse ways to spend my time, but surely there is also an easier way to help him nod off???

Meringue33 Tue 16-Apr-13 17:38:51

I hear you Bunty. Wonder if we will ever be able to stop worrying - maybe in 18 years??

Sorry to tell ya but the worries just change as they get older sad ds1 (9) currently pushing all sorts of boundaries.

Ivy has turned into a chatterbox. She lies on the gym chuntering away to the baby in the mirror! Its very cute smile

Sorry bunty .meant to say sorry to hear tongue tie back. I realky hope she doesn't need snipping again x

octanegirl Tue 16-Apr-13 18:35:32

Quick question - what on earth do we do with our babies once they have outgrown the oh-so-wonderful bouncy chair...? I'm serious! It can't be long now, it's only OK till he's 9kgs. Then what? I can bounce him into submission at the moment and am now panicking at the prospect of not having it.
Do I have to park the car in my kitchen and put him in it with the engine running to calm him down....?

Meringue33 Tue 16-Apr-13 19:13:56

Oh dear. Boak in the bath water.

Angielka Tue 16-Apr-13 19:15:32

meringue I had to feed to sleep for the first time in aaaaaaages today - maybe it's a phase (everything's a phase, right?) where they need a bit more comfort to nod off.

I'm a bit panicky because I haven't tried the sling or pram for naps in a good few days because of being stuck in isolation with chicken poxy DD1. What if she only ever naps in her cot from now on?! Ridiculius isn't it. They are much more adaptable than we give them credit for these babes.

Really sorry about the tongue tie bunty I didn't realise it was the third go... I hope the feeding issues are a little easier now she's older but it's a pain.

apple Molly is a chatterer too. It's lovely, isn't it?!

Pascha Tue 16-Apr-13 19:38:03

octanegirl you get a Jumperoo.

Lostbobbles Tue 16-Apr-13 21:12:56

Bunty sorry to hear about DD, hope you get good news at weigh in and don't have to go through the op again.

Day from hell here, cold turkey on dummy gate and its not been pleasant hmmhmmhmm. I feel so guilty as its all our own doing but she was up too many times to count last night so action needed. It's going to be a tough few days but praying it helps in long run.

Own room situ is rubbish as well her room echo's so seems louder than when she was in with us and not amused by the traipsing across the landing. She does however look much more comfy being able to spread her arms out rather than hitting them on the crib sides.

On good note she loved the sensory play at baby group grin

Pascha can't wait to get the jumperoo out grin

Angie if only he napped in his basket!
