How's your Monday ladies?
I am Mumsnetting for five mins after
swimming lesson (wrestling other child poolside) soft play and Stay and Play. These kids want more! Need five mins to switch my brain off.
We are watching Nina and The Neurons - that girl clearly does her own hair and make up.

GP made a house call today and says Halo has responded well to the antibiotics though he it did take awhile for them to kick in. He wants to keep Halo on them for another week due to how long it took them to kick in.

Basically it's similar to the UK system with a few extra jabs thrown in! wink

It's a little easier this time as I've already had experience with twins. It is chaos though! grin

Glad she's feeling better. smile

livenlet Thu 06-Mar-14 11:30:50

Maybe weird isn't the right word but more, overwhelming, it seems there is follow ups for everything! They spent 2mo in UK and had no jabs, now then I was overwhelmed by them as I had to have the other DC checked/updated. I asked one of the Docs on the jabs and he linked me here - Cue confusion, luckily he explained it better on the next visit!!

Maybe it's just because the UK system seems simpler and easier to understand.

Hope your munchkin feels better tomorroe. Artie & Halo are currently having a screaming match. I think we need to work out new sleeping arrangments...

livenlet Wed 05-Mar-14 14:36:17

She screamed all the way home and wasnt happy till she see daddy, how do you mean weird mmama

MultipleMama Wed 05-Mar-14 13:23:07

I hope the jabs go well. Halo isn't a people person either and hates others near him.

You've also just reminded me to write down when the DC jabs are due - Germany jabs are weird...

livenlet Wed 05-Mar-14 09:35:56

Hello ladies, were of to get jabs today the little one is really not a people person let alone people with needles ..

Peace and quiet reign... Chaos and Mayhem (DD1 and DD2) are demolishing pancakes.

DD2's been given the go-ahead from the dietician to reintroduce dairy in baked goods which is just utter bloody bliss knowing we can go out and grab a croissant for her instead of rushing back for lunchtime.

With the weaning thing - my 33 weeker was bloody starving when we started on purees (her hand-eye coordination was terrible for a good while so BLW wasn't going to work in the short term for us) - took to them ridiculously well - just struggled with the sitting up part and the food to mouth part... no issues nowadays since we're onto pancake number 2 over there! She's still much more laid back about wanting other people to feed her to get the food in faster if the option's there though - her sister's very much more focused in trying to do things herself in that regard.

MultipleMama Tue 04-Mar-14 03:13:37

My children are evil. Haven't had more than an hours straight sleep since 10pm, it's now 4.15am. I want sleep sad Don't you hate cranky children? grin

missali Mon 03-Mar-14 10:10:08

Morning all! Exciting morning here as we go on hols tomorrow...I'm making lists of all the things W may need in the hope I don't forget anything!
Will regards to weaning, W has been on puréed food for about 10 weeks now as he has reflux so was weaned early. He is only now showing interest in wanting to feed himself, so we sit him in the high chair whilst we eat and he has banana and cucumber to play with..

Pipsmilkmaid Mon 03-Mar-14 07:51:41

Morning all.
Well done Val hope your legs are ok today. Sounds like you had a lovely day yesterday Multiple.
Welcome Bankholiday I started blw the beginning of feb we do fruit purée and fingers in the morning around half 8 then again around half 3 unfortunately I can't advise on a sleepy baby ds is very alert, as total strangers never stop telling me but I gave him food when he seemed most interested in what I was doing. Now he tries to take mine out my hands constantly and likes to feed himself with a preloaded spoon.

MultipleMama Mon 03-Mar-14 01:27:30

Bankholidaybaby - My preemies are months away from BLW but hopefully some of the lovely ladies on here have some tips/advice for you.

Halo gave DH his first smile today, kinda miffed it wasn't me, though. I keep trying to get him to smile and he just gives me this "look". He's such a Vava's boy! smile

Bankholidaybaby Mon 03-Mar-14 00:11:49

Hello, my boy was born at 33+1 in a very rapid and unexpected fashion! He's now 27 weeks old and doing very well.

Weaning to solids is proving to be challenging as, although he loves the purées I'm giving him at lunch time, he's rarely awake for more than 90 minutes at a time, and has unpredictable naps (sometimes very short, sometimes hours) so it's hard to get milk and solids into him before he wants to sleep, and if I wait until after he's napped, it could be 3pm when he has his lunch. So, I tend to do a bottle at 12.30-1pm, then wait 15 minutes, then purée 1.15-1.45pm, then nappy change and sleep.

I haven't tried breakfast yet, despite having been doing solids for three weeks now, as he doesn't wake up until 8.30am and by the time he's had a bottle and been washed and dressed, it's 9.45-10am and he wants to sleep again!

Does anyone else have a super-sleepy solid-eater?

MultipleMama Sun 02-Mar-14 22:21:39

Congratulations, Val, bloody brilliant! smile Have a nice long soak in the bath and ice your legs 15mins on and off - I used to do this after Ice Hockey matches and it seems to help, a good rub helps too. I hope walking is more bearable tomorrow for you!! smile

Valdeeves Sun 02-Mar-14 21:00:59

I ran the half marathon guys - but now I have the problem that I can't physically walk - and I mean I really can't!

MultipleMama Sun 02-Mar-14 11:10:49

Good morning ladies, what a beautiful day!

How is everyone? Any plans?

DH & BiL have taken K, A and the boys along with BiL's kids to Hauptstadt Zoo so I am having a baby and me day. I plan to do nothing but lounge in front of the fire with duvets. The calm seems to be working as Halo is, for the first time ever, relaxed on his back hypnotized by the coloured lights on his play mat. Artie is army crawling all over the floor grin

So glad hes a little better hope you manage to get some sleep tonight.
Valdeeves good luck tomoro

MultipleMama Sat 01-Mar-14 23:08:33

He's doing better, the pain relief is helping so much with feeding and it makes him sleepy. Bonus! Still very fussy and makes himself stressed when he tries to cry because it irritates his throat so now he constantly whimpers. We've moved Artie from the co-sleeper to the snuggle nest so Halo isn't disturbed during sleep.

Valdeeves Sat 01-Mar-14 22:12:44

MMama how's he doing tonight? Thinking of you xxxx

livenlet Sat 01-Mar-14 22:09:36

Glad your little man is home

MultipleMama Sat 01-Mar-14 21:49:15

Very scary. I've had to turn around the monitor on a night because I kept staring at, the sounds he makes when sleeping are horrible and it's like I'm constantly aware of every breath he takes, I've had to ask DH to swap sides of the bed because I know I'll never sleep by checking his monitors all the time.

I am so ready for RSV season to be over too! smile

Pipsmilkmaid Sat 01-Mar-14 17:36:37

That's good he's home. Must of been scary.
I'm looking forward to spring and the end of rsv season.

MultipleMama Sat 01-Mar-14 16:06:55

Halo is now home from hospital! grin He's on antibiotics for his chest and pain relief as he has literally cried himself raw and has lost his voice. When feeding he stresses and desats they've noticed it happend more when he swallows and must be causing him pain. He's gotta take the anti's for 10-14 days and the pain relief until no longer needed.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! smile
