Hello! Just marking my space grin

cinnamongreyhound Tue 05-Oct-10 20:09:17

You are making sense sassy34264, I think second ones tend to be more relaxed because they have had to fit around the first one. Have no idea when they stop being newborns, there are probably lots of different theories!

Thanks comixminx and bananastew for getting us upto date.

I am very proud of myself today, went to the post office on the way to toddler group with a 3 year old, 2 year old, nearly 2 year old and Luke and posted all my parcels with no disasters and got to toddler group 5 mins late! Scarily I met a lady on the way out who said 'I had 5 like that'!!!!!

sassy34264 Tue 05-Oct-10 20:42:34

Believe it or not I taught childcre at college up until last year, so i should know the theories! ha. In my defence childcare isn't my subject- psychology is- so i taught the modules on child psychology. Will go ad dust off my books......maybe!

God cinnamon i don't know how you organise them all. It took a military operation to get to my hair appointment today. I went with it wet already and they just cut it and i blow dried it at home. To take the least possible time. Jacob has honoured the occasion by being sick in it already.

Chelle1986 Tue 05-Oct-10 20:42:48

Hi guys. Quick update on me and Olly.

Well Olly is 9 days old now and absolutely beautiful even if I do say so myself. My mum keeps looking at him and saying "OMG it's like looking at you when you were a baby!" much to DP's jealousy! Haha.

Olly is feeding REALLY well. He is actually already taking 100ml (about 3 and a half ounces I think) per feed at around every 3 hours!! What is everyone else's babys taking? Do you think this is too much and maybe I should switch to hungry baby formula? Am worried he is having too much - particularly as he often looks for more after he has finished the 100ml!

Finding it a little difficult to settle him at night - any tips??

I'm feeling fine. Not as sore anymore - but going for a poo is a nightmare!! Argh!! lol.xxx

And phew - only just managed to get the link to the new thread posted in the old thread!

sassy34264 Wed 06-Oct-10 08:14:31

Sorry, that's my fault. I didn't realise there are a limited number of posts. Thank god you did, or else i probably would have lost you and even if i didn't i would have felt mightily guilty for anyone else who couldn't find you. Phew indeed! x

I put both of them in their cot last night (after i spent 30 mins moving all the ironing from it!)with their new too cute sleeping bags on and they both stayed there nearly all night. Can't say i slept any better cos it was exactly the same with them waking for feeds, but it will be better for when DP gets back Fri.

Dixiebell Wed 06-Oct-10 09:24:34

Hi all, quick update, Arlo Peter finally arrived 4/10/10, after a fair bit of trauma. 8lb 7oz. We are both still in hospital on antibiotics, not sure when we will be sent home. But all good and he's gorgeous!

sassy34264 Wed 06-Oct-10 09:31:28

Big congrats dixie Hope you are both well soon. x

beaditAli Wed 06-Oct-10 10:56:05

Oh.... a brand new thread! smile
Congrats dixie and Hello little Arlo and all the other little lovelies that've arrived!
chelle Jack is taking 4oz every 3-4 hours and hardly ever brings any back up so he's definitely hungry for it. I am unfortunately expressing and topping up with formula as Jack would only feed from my left side, despite every effort to get him to take from both sad. I now have a nipple that looks as though a vampire has been attached for 2 weeks.
I've really fought with myself about it but it's just been impossible to carry on bfing. sad
Jack has a sleep pattern already. Sleeps all day bar an hour at around 10am and 4pm. He than has a really irritating awake spell between 9pm ish and midnight/1am. It is driving me mad as he never cries so don't think it's colic....? He has a couple of changes and a feed or two but just won't settle. If it was colic would he be screaming? help

sassy34264 Wed 06-Oct-10 11:12:08

dd had colic beaditall i use to try and put her to bed and as soon as i put her down she would wriggle and draw her legs up and cry. Does he do that when you put him down?

It is unusual for a newborn to be awake for that length of time. Mine are older than Jack and neither of them have ever been awake for that length of time yet, but you have to remember they are all different and someone may be along in a minute to tell you their baby does something similiar. So it may be nothing at all.

chelle I don't rate hungry baby formula at all. In my experience with dd, it just causes horrible constipation. Again others may feel differently. Are you sure he isn't just windy? It was mentined on a previous post that babies act hungry and then when they burp, they stop.

Debs75 Wed 06-Oct-10 11:36:04

hello to all the new arrivals, welcome to the land of no sleepsmile

has anyone found that their LO's don't like their moses basket? Lucy is fine during the day but is reaaly hard to settle in it on a night so we have had to put her in the carry-cot, dc3 is still in the cot. she sleeps better, we are getting some 5-6 hour stretches on a night now.

I don't like the hungry formula either, it is harder to digest so baby will sleep longer before feeling hungry again. i kept ds on first stage all the was through and he was a hungry blighter. he still put weight on and did well on it.

sassy have taken your lead and noted what i have eaten when lucy is irritable. Diet coke is out, she was sick after one feed and the next time she wouldn't settle for hours.

beaditali late evening is lucy's awake time as well. we usually cluster feed from around 7.30 till 11pm. it's a pain as dc3 needs putting to bed at 8-9 and she can take a while so i have to listen to lucy squawking. last night she sucked her dads finger and fell asleep so qwe may have to give in and get her a dummysad none of the other 3 would take one.

sassy34264 Wed 06-Oct-10 11:47:57

debs Yes coke causes all manner of probs here as well. Sometimes it is hard to fathom cos i can sometimes eat more than 1 different thing a day and not know which it is causing it. So far i know for definate that coke, porridge, oatiflake cereal and vinegar make mine and their life a nightmare.

Things that are in doubt are yogurts, certain fruits, peanut butter and spar ice cream ( Tesco ice cream is ok, unless it was the flavour cos had toffee instead of my usual chocolate! ) It's a minefield! :O

I use a dummy sometimes to sooth them when they are struggling to pass wind as it seems to relax them enough to get it out. But it is sometimes a pain in the ass, cos they can cry just as much cos the boody thing keeps falling out of their mouths.....esp Jacob, who tries to suck like he breast feeds, which is a totally different suck. hehe jacob is on my lap (hence the repeated posts, as i'm grounded and he just trumped on me as i typed that!! Bless him.

beaditAli Wed 06-Oct-10 12:25:12

Thanks Debs75 it's good to know that we're not alone. We have tried a dummy with reluctance though he won't take it. Though I know it may have helped, I have to say I'm quite pleased as I really don't want to use one. He is currently awake.... still! I haven't had my morning sleep in. meep meep meep.
I came off Diclofenic after 10 days and now really wish I still had some as my stitches are killing me. I've had to bin all our lovely flowers so I don't sneeze as I feel as though I'm going to tear in half.
Jack is so worth it all though. Might try uploading more pics of his funny little face. smile

mapletrees Wed 06-Oct-10 12:39:07

Congratulations RunningGuerita, JodeyLea, zowina and Dixiebelll, and weclome merlin and ethelina. Dixie, sorry you had a tough birth. I hope they let you home with Arlo soon.
Thanks for sorting the new thread comixminx.

beaditAli, just as sassy predicted, I'm here to say Louis tends to be awake for a long period in the evening, though not quite as late as Jack. Last night he was awake from about 5.30 until about 9.30ish, cluster feeding and being a bit grizzly. Even in the short breaks between feeds he was wide awake and there was no persuading him to nod off. Louis is a few weeks older than Jack, but he's been doing this kind of thing for a while.

cinnamongreyhound Wed 06-Oct-10 12:50:08

I found this Chelle1986 so it looks like he's just fine. Otherwise I don't have any experience as I breastfed both of mine.

BooStar Wed 06-Oct-10 13:09:56

Congrats to all new arrivals and yay to the new thread!

Loving the stories about spraying pee! Ruben pretty much peed all over himself nearly every change at the beginning until we got wise to putting a muslin on his winkie as soon as the nappy came off. He nearly got his dad in the face on my birthday which was the perfect present for me! i nearly peed myself laughing!!
Very intrigued by the peepee teepee, am going to look that up

On the clothes front, we're definitely in the babygro camp. More comfy, more convenient and dare i say it, I just think babies look a bit weird in grown up style clothes...

swordfish our induction was started on the 15th but it took 2 days as they had to keep stopping and starting us as the hospital was so busy, apparently they had 25 births in 24 hrs, women giving birth in non labour rooms, midwives running around like headless chickens & threats to close the hospital to new admissions at one point. We gave birth in the Princess Anne in Southampton so really looking forward to the next series of 'One born every minute' as they've been filming throughout September & i guess they will be covering the time we were in as it was all very dramatic! (not that we will be on it at all - we were asked quite a few times during my pregnancy but i just couldn't think of anything worse!)

Things with Ruben going well-ish - he must be feeding well as he's putting on a huge amount of weight but my nipples are still sore and I'm not convinced he's latching properly - he just won't open his mouth wide enough to get a good mouthful of nipple and it doesn't help that I have humongous boobs. Any tips?

He's also suffering from colic at night - not constant crying but intermittent griping yelps and grumbles that stop him from settling to sleep. He bring wind up fine but it seems to me it's more stomach pains or trapped trumps. Again, any tips and any ideas why it only happens at night?

Oh dear - apologies for the long post - i get a few minutes to myself and i can't stop rambling!

sassy34264 Wed 06-Oct-10 13:34:32

boostar I have the same problem with Isobel, it is hit and miss if she latches on properly. One midwife showed me how to do it properly but it still relies on Isobel cooperating. I'll try to explain it:

Whichever boob you are using, (left or right) start by holding that boob with the corresponding hand ie, left boob, left hand. Use your other hand to grip around the back of LO's head. Have your nipple pointing up to his nose. So the flat of your nipple should be touching the underneath of his nose (the bit between his nostrils) When they open their mouth wide the bottom lip should be on your boob away from the nipple, keepn that pressed to the lip and slide the nipple into the open mouth. (you have to be fast cos they can close it too fast and end up clamped just on the nipple.) it can take several attempts and occasionally i give up and just let her hurt me. :O

Monstermuncher Wed 06-Oct-10 14:12:15

Hello all

Struggling a bit with the bf here, it's easier than with DD and Sam latches on correctly etc but he's just so hungry all the time, I just can't keep up with him. Have resorted to the odd formula feed at night just to get some rest as I'm utterly exhausted and can't rest during the day as I have DD to look after. Formula does settle him, he still fusses a bit but much less than with a bf. I know its going to get easier at some point (we are still feeding at 2 or 2.5 hour intervals) but I feel totally shredded. Is it just me?
