Thanks Mama for the title. A new thread hopefully everyone will find us again.

erm not really but he has had a bit of a cold which only really comes out at night. I did however survive three days of ILs. I am stuck in for the afternoon waiting for a plumber that won't probably turn up until 5pm

Sche nice to see you posting. I hope you'll carry on smile. I especially love all your food ideas, you're so creative with what you give C!

<Waves at Climbing> It's amazing how different they are to their siblings isn't it? Ds1 had teeth, was sitting and crawling, and sleeping through all before E. I'm with you on making the most of non-movement though. This house is no way baby proof!

Still awful sleep here. Managed 4 hours in all last night sad. And I have friends coming for supper tonight so can't even get an early night. And I am grumpy. Again.

You must all think I'm a moany old cow. I'm not always like this but E has aged be about 30 years grin

Thanks lo smile C has been enjoying sardines mashed with tomatoes sandwiches today! He's crawling better which is tiring him out, goes to sleep 7-7.30, woke up 8.15am today! He's suddenly loads happier in the day too, doesn't want carrying constantly, now that he can explore the environment himself. Thats all it was, he didn't want cuddles as he'd kick off if I sat down! That's why his nickname is little bugger his lordship. We're lucky to have a big living room with lots of space so he's enjoying himself a lot more. Need a stairgate as he's mastered stairs!

lookout Tue 10-Jul-12 15:30:15

Wow. Sche sounds like he's really busy! So good to hear he's feeling better in himself smile Ds1 was like that, so frustrated until he could walk, then it happened again when he was learning to talk. We lived in a flat then and didn't have a stairgate as lived on 1st floor and he got so used to steps that we didn't bother in the end. Have to keep an eye out though!

I tried tuna on E and he turned his nose up at it so I'm pretty sure sardines would be out too. He is so picky like his dad

sad and a little shock. I've been very restrained, and am trying to remain so. No one has written nastily or behind anyones back. For goodness sake, this is all very silly and really can't be arsed with it.

<flounces off to netmums>....

Ok I am not ~that~ annoyed/desperate/bonkers *delete as appropriate.

climbing not sure if it's the same but R tends to have a cold at night too. all ok during the day but a bunged up nose at night which has him screaming intermittently and then I have to keep settling him. i tried two things - sometimes one works, sometimes another (sometimes of course neither) wonder if either will work for you....

Either: kept a saucepan of boiling hot water with a few drops of karvol in his room. that gave him humidity in the air and the karvol of course helped

Or: The calpol plug-in. We put it in his room but it kind of pervades the entire house; DH and I end up sleeping quite fabulously too.

im enjoying some peace and quiet after the twins antics (pics on fb group) all 3 babes are asleep, except jacob is asleep on me and im laying on the handset- so raa raa the noisy lion it is! hmm

sassy34264 Tue 10-Jul-12 15:42:59

what is so wrong with netmums <ducks in case there is some MAJOR reason that im not aware of>

MamaMaiasaura Tue 10-Jul-12 15:49:49

sassy I dare you to start a thread asking that very question... Go on wink <hands sassy voddy for Dutch courage>

Damn, J awake and trying to eat phone. She keeps eating bits off the carpet too.i think I birthed a goat. Best go do parenting.

strawberrypenguin Tue 10-Jul-12 15:52:19

Just wanted to say that I have never seen any playground tactics/ bullying on here. We are all grown ups and there are going to be different opinions sometimes - be very boring if there wasn't!

That is the end of the matter <gavel>

ClimbingPenguin Tue 10-Jul-12 15:54:31

i should try that loving it's what I do for DD but in my head DS is still a little baby and I forget to try these things as well blush I think I have been a bit depressed lately which has affected my thinking.

i only skim read the last thread but I just wanted to say that it is really easy to think what works for your baby is transferable and when writing suggestions, as hard as it, remember each baby is different. I've had several people refuse to believe my two won't nap in buggies or car-seats, like it is some universal truth.

strawberrypenguin Tue 10-Jul-12 15:54:36

sch I think there a lot of us here who struggle with our older babies (def. me). They will never get to a magical content bit, just lulls while they wait for their next transition. It has helped me knowing the bad and the good bits don't last, just cycle round each other

MamaMaiasaura Tue 10-Jul-12 16:06:26

sassy start it in AIBU then you are bound to get a good roasting grin

MamaMaiasaura Tue 10-Jul-12 16:07:47
