I've got Boots ones of those, but they're too small already! I recycle old butter tubs etc with just a dollop in the bottom.

First wake up, hurrah, just wish I'd put the light out when he went down at 8 instead of assuming he'd be up by now and reading till 10:30...

I got a pack of Avent pots they're a really good size and good for fruit etc for dd too. Still have some baby dan ones left from dd too, they've got a rubber bit in the base so you can push the food out.

Ds has been unsettled tonight. He fed (/nd wake up hmm) at 1 but then woke at 2 and dp got him back to sleep with bum patting but he woke again just now and wasn't settling so I've fed him again. Fingers crossed he might do three hours now.

We're up again :-( 4th time.

He threw up everywhere last night. Then was a lot happier. But once we came to bed he screamed and screamed, I've never felt so useless in all my life. I was sobbing my heart out with him and it took ~30 mins to calm him by furiously rocking and ssshhing in his ear. He had momentarily fell asleep with the dummy (that he's refused for 3/4 months) but woke up screaming a few mins later when we first came upstairs, but wouldn't go anywhere near a boob. sad thankfully he just had his first proper wake up and fed really nicely, but I'm going to have to express off the other side because its so full it's hurting.

I hope other babies are behaving better than my poor boy!

And we're standing rocking looking at the morning through the spare room window.

2nd wake up but at half 2 she went back to sleep with just me shushing from my bed.

Isthat i hope you and DS are ok. H isn't teething, she has got a bad chest. She's wheezing so we will be in the house till it clears up.

Mama, yay hopefully your nights will get easier now and you'll get abit more rest.

We've got pots from B&M ha they were really cheap, but i always forget to freeze stuff too lazy She always just ends up having what we're having for breakfast/dinner/tea. Yesterday she really reduced her milk intake as well she only had 20oz in the whole day. I'm not sure if thats because shes got a cold or because shes weaning.

Fuck me. I've been up since 1am. I hate my life.

WLmum Sun 02-Jun-13 05:04:48

Feeling your pain mama. Fx this phase passes quickly for us both. Just trying to get T back down to sleep.

I've had thirty minutes sleep since one. He's now screaming.

I enjoyed it being in triplicate spotty - kind of like how pre children you might repeat such words in disbelief!
Right, she's asleep on me smelling delightfully of snot and vomit. Bets are on for what happens when I put her in her cot...

WLmum Sun 02-Jun-13 05:32:12

Of course she screamed. Took her back and she was almost instantly asleep in my arms - managed to put her down on her back - weird for an ardent tummy sleeper. Fx she stays that way for a few hours.

PurplePidjin Sun 02-Jun-13 05:44:02

2nd wake here, first was at 3 <hurrah> normally dp would get him up for breakfast at this through sheer frustration after a disturbed night leaving me to get some actual rest sofx he goes back down!

Barbeasty Sun 02-Jun-13 06:43:04

Morning all, shame the thread got so busy overnight!

I just left DD with A for a second, to make sure he didn't roll out of my bed. I came back to shouts about how he definitely couldn't roll out- she'd put one of his little teddies between him & the edge of the bed!

Had a successful day on eBay yesterday. A swing for DD (will bid later on a baby seat for it) for £10 and a galt baby nest for A. They have one at nursery, and it's fantastic for babies who can't quite sit unaided or for very long on their own.

Also got the river cottage baby & toddler cook book, which looks fab. They suggested using silicon mini muffin tins to freeze puree, but I've used the silicon cake pop "tin" I was given for Christmas.

Morning ladies, sorry you've had bad nights, hope you get some cat naps in today brewlooks lovely outside hear grin

Barbeasty we've got one of those nests ds loves it and we take it outside.

Weather's looking good until Saturday when it's meant to rain here. Think we'll be staying in and picnicking in the garden today.

IsThatTrue Sun 02-Jun-13 08:32:22

He's still asleep shock he is moving but I didn't think he'd still be asleep!

Fx we have a tooth or at least the bastard thing stops hurting my little baby

FriendofDorothy Sun 02-Jun-13 09:29:59

I have a baby near too. Very useful to put baby in when I need a shower!

FriendofDorothy Sun 02-Jun-13 09:40:32

A baby nest I mean!

ISpyPlumPie Sun 02-Jun-13 09:47:32

Cheers for the new thread Hales.

Hope all poorly babies are feeling better soon.

Ds just slept for an hour and twenty minutes so I did too. Feel a bit better, or I would if I wasn't annoyed that I've now missed half the morning.

WLmum Sun 02-Jun-13 11:31:28

Ah yes, the sleep versus time debate.

Morning all, my throat hurts today from throwing up wine. I can officially no longer handle my drink! I drank low alcohol wine all night and still felt horrific. Least I'm not hungover this morning though grin

DS did not sleep for MiL, he only did 1-5! She ignored all instructions a lug feeding him on a dark bedroom and putting him down at 7:30. She bathed him a 6:30, in the living room, fed him at 6:45 and then put him in bed wide awake with the curtains open. She has no one but herself to blame wink

Sorry to hear about your poor DS Isthat I hope his tooth cuts soon. And sorry t is poorly too WL.
