Legally, you returned, we sent out search parties several times! ;) So pleased to hear from you, what a lovely update. Sounds like the ever changing gorgeous kids are keeping you on your toes. My little guy has just turned 6 months, so we are very slowly starting to BLW. He isn't anywhere near sitting, has no interest at all. He is such a happy and for the most part easy, so feel very lucky, especially after having a non sleeper first time.

Looking forward to seeing you over on Facebook xx

Hi Legally! I'm so glad that you and your family are doing well. My son J is beautiful and thriving now but like everyone else we've had our own challenges. It'll be nice seeing you on fb!

Hi Legally, so glad to hear you, the twins and your family are doing so well!! You had us worried :-)

We're doing well. I've lucked out with a happy, contented little guy. After some challenges with BF (TT snip required), things settled down, even got some decent sleep! Then we hit the 4 month sleep regression(!!!) followed by teething (two teeth!) and a bad cold (both of us)... Fx, we're just emerging from a horrible month of very little sleep.

It would be fab to see you FB!! The Oct bus doesn't feel complete without you there xx

Hi Legally (your fellow Exonian here) nice to hear you're doing so well. There's a SW meet up in Exeter on 4 April - I'll PM you the details.

Conrad (known as Doodle) is a very placid baby with a halo of yellow fluff that's rapidly turning into a tintin quiff. Still BF - another bottle refuser - but we risked a night out last night since he's generally a good sleeper. Came home to discover he'd been awake (but happy) most of the time we were out... Not quite a success but not a disaster either!

Hi legally its so so lovely to hear from you and hear how the twins are doing.
Really do hope you can join us on fb but equally lovely to have a catch up here and have everyone summarise how theyre getting on grin

We are still struggling with reflux here. was under control with ranitidine and domperidone but now at 5.5 months shes maxed out on both and still in pain (especially at night) weve been advised to wean early but my stubborn little girl is refusing all food. on a positive note we have 2 (very sharp) teeth, shes sitting up and does the odd role and bf is going well and can see us carrying on for a good while yet.

please stay in touch
lots of love xx

Flyer, I've pm'ed you re FB...

Don't worry about all the bottle refusing. DD did too so I haven't even bothered with the twins. Nights out are possible-ish. I've just fed them to sleep at 7 and been back at 11 and hoped for the best!! If I were home I'd cuddle and shh/pat to sleep of they woke before 11 anyway.....

Will reply to everyone properly if/ when I'm on FB.

Ps - in the meantime, so glad Eliana is well x

Hi 34pinkladyapple. If you pm me with your name and a description of your fb profile pic, I'll see if I can add you (need to make you a friend of mine first).

Just wanted to test out my new username gringrin

Hello! I've set up "watch this thread" so I get an email when someone posts.

AnythingNotEverything Thu 10-Apr-14 00:17:41

Ooh - me too! Great idea orange.

I wonder is other October mums are wondering where the postnatal thread is and wondering if we were just a bunch of antisocial grumps. Little do they know!

Is anyone still watching this thread? Had a rubbish day at work and wish I was still on mat leave.

How is everyone doing? Going to join Facebook as I'm missing the chat!

terrifiednewbie Mon 14-Jul-14 02:03:45

Wow I cant believe how quickly time has flown! I gather you are all on a facebook group now. If anyone still sees messages on this thread, any chance I could be added please? I hope all of you lovely ladies and lovely babies are doing well!
