I think that sounds fine pp

I have a question for you all. Can you tell me what time your baby is going to bed for the night? We've managed to get babylaughalot to go down by 10pm (most nights anyway) instead of midnight, but I know this should be earlier and I should be aiming for around 7pm and just wondered how many of your little ones are actually asleep by this time at this age?

GTbaby Wed 20-Feb-13 19:23:52

Pp I would go. In LO gets cranky step out.

Hi dona and lane. I'm feeling as rough as a badgers arse. I'm sure that's an actual saying and I've not made it up.
Meds have stopped me puking except in morning (noon by the time i wake up) but that's ok.
Jut been crap all the time. DH has been helping alot (hence in bed till noon). He does morning feed.
And have booking in app on Saturday.

Off to India in two weeks. Although MAY have to post pone our trip as SIL hasn't had her baby yet, due 14th now booked in for an induction on 26th. We won't go unless she has the baby first...

In bed now. Might start on a mini dexter marathon.

BigPigLittlePig Wed 20-Feb-13 19:24:26

No chance here miss
Into bedclothes, plus/minus bath, between 7 and 8, then feeds/naps until 9 or 9.30, then bed. Evenings? What are they?!

kissyfur Wed 20-Feb-13 19:25:04

Glass of wine sounds like just what I need too Eliza! smile

Crap day, LO been crying every time I put her down. Probably a good job there's no booze in the house!

GTbaby Wed 20-Feb-13 19:29:26

Miss laugh alot. LO is in bed now... But that's the first time in ages!

I was bringing him up at 6/7 n stuff. But last week when MS got bad I was in bed two days n DH took over. Since LO has been in bed at 8/9ish. But his has all coincided with him sleeping thro again! Yeppie.

He has done a couple 12 hour stretches! But mostly 10 hours. grin The first night he cried at 4.30. I was so bad couldn't get out of bed. N DH took ages, by the time I shoved him enough to wake him LO was asleep again smile second night same thing. Third night slept through.

glendathefedupwitch Wed 20-Feb-13 19:31:32

Grrrrrrr!! Collected Dottie early as had done what housework I had allocated myself today don't want to be too fly and was sat there bored so went and got her for cuddles - which meant I had prepped dinner but she wanted feeding just as the salmon needed cooking - dh did it all brings it in ala half raw salmon and cold watercress sauce!!! My favouritist dinner and he balls it up!!! Thank god there's a bottle of wine in the fridge!!!

detective car insurance is a rip off though him being fussy as to which car he has would confused me - surely you should get the bigger car for Oscar and his accompaniments?? I have the big car for kids/baby/dog/big shop/eBay pick ups while he has the stupidly tiny micro car - though we did mange 2 trips to France in it with 4 of us plus crap - was v cramped!! Though on our recent jaunt to Manchester I still manage to fill the whole of the boot with what if crap - what if we need the play mat, what if we need the steriliser lol

In other news my box of sweets arrived but there's not a chance it will all fit in the silly little gift box I bought!!! Either I fashion my own or make another trip into town!! Or I could just eat enough sweets til they fit??? Anyone want a dib dab or pineapple cube??

Hallo you lovely bosomy bunch

P has been marginally less grumpy today so she might just avoid being swapped for a kitten.

Hope tutoring goes well MM. I doubt anyone will notice some baby vom. I once taught a class of seniors with my blouse completely unbuttoned. Noone said a thing.

Insurance costs are scandalous detective. Enjoy your bath.

miss p goes to sleep at 7pm and stays asleep until we wake her at 10:30 for meds. Don't know why - in fact I suspect she would like it earlier if she could. I wish I could bottle P's sleep and post it to you all as long as we keep enough for us!

FatimaLovesBread Wed 20-Feb-13 19:37:22

Another cunting thread grin

Why oh why after feeling fed up yesterday, I've come home tonight at 6pm, bedtime to do and I'm in the mood for fucking cleaning. What's wrong with me?! Wierdo

miss M goes down between half 9 and half 10 for the night. She's tired from earlier but doesn't give in

detective That sounds shit. Anyone who changes car on a policy would be to a newly owned car. Nobheads! Would it not have been cheaper to cancel and start a new policy with someone else?

When I passed my test years ago, I passed end of April, DHs insurance was up for renewal at end August. He rang up to add me to the insurance as a named driver and the twats wanted £550!!! For 4 months as a named driver. I bought my own car, got my own policy and that only cost £650 in my name. When he renewed in sept he added me then as a named driver and it ended up being only £50 more. I reckon they just pluck numbers from the air

Clarella Wed 20-Feb-13 19:41:01

miss, we are ditto to bigpig - can conk out anywhere between 7:30 and 9:30 following cluster feeds that usually start about 7. what happens after that is anyones guess!

we had first baby sensory class today. it was good and I can nick loads of ideas for school was so proud that g - now ten weeks - was showing off his holding head up tummy time! he's only little though and all the wind has strengthened his arching back!

ChunkyChicken Wed 20-Feb-13 19:43:23

Marking spot.

Have had a good day today but a bit of a grumpy baby - he hasn't napped much & is not happy about it. Will try to catch up & be back later...

TheDetective Wed 20-Feb-13 19:54:11

BPLP Gay they are!

miss O started off 11-12pm bedtimes. We started waking him around 9, and he started sleeping at 9-10pm. Then suddenly, with no prompting, or idea he was going to do it, the last 4 nights he has been falling asleep around 7.30pm, stirring for a feed between 9.30-10.30 depending on what time he last fed, then going back down.

HOWEVER. He is waking 4 hourly through the night, where as previously he was sleeping 7-8 hours. With one 9.5 hour stint.

Not sure what I prefer right now! confused. One 6 hour stretch would be good?! Just one?! Last night he did a 6 hour stretch, except he was bloody well awake and not interested in feeding, as opposed to sleeping and not interested in feeding. He woke at 3.30 and fed, then woke at 7.30 to start the day, but then didn't feed til 9.30. Gah.

Glenda I can manage in my car okay, not liking the fact it is a 3 door, but I'll manage for now. He wants the bigger car for his fucking legs hmm. He is 6ft1. I'm tempted to just go out and get my new car now. I can't really afford it, but then once it comes back from being repaired next week, its due MOT/Tax. I could use that money for a month or 2's payments, and the rest of the money from DP's car for another month or 2. I'll have a look in to it. I'm planning on getting a very very cheap car to run. grin Think less than band C for tax, and 50-60mpg minimum!

pass At this rate i'll be asleep before I get a bath!! D'oh!

Fatima We tried every possible combination of insurances. Cancelling and taking a new policy with them (for they still came back the cheapest by a long way) would have cost £450 (as opposed to the £320 we paid out to swap car over), and he would have lost nearly half a year no claims, and when you only have 1 year, you don't want to lose even a day!


PetiteRaleuse Wed 20-Feb-13 19:54:12

Many years ago I worked in the City as an insurance broker. I can guarantee that insurance companies are prize cunts.

kissyfur Wed 20-Feb-13 19:54:47

Miss you are not alone. LO doesn't go to bed properly until we do at about 10:30/11 - despite my efforts!! I am trying to put her to bed now, Ewan is on, she's had a good feed, but every time I attempt to transfer she wakes up crying! She's not slept much at all today either confused She does sometimes nap in her carry cot when she is downstairs in the evenings tho.

BigPigLittlePig Wed 20-Feb-13 20:09:30

LO has had a 10 minute snooze this morning and an hours nap this afternoon confused. I hope this means she'll sleep well? <crosses everything>

PurplePidjin Wed 20-Feb-13 20:09:38

R dropped off on me at the end of Hollyoaks 7:30 so we came up and did the bedtime routine - crib+mobile while i change, then his turn for night nappy and sleeping bag. He's cluster fed this evening for the first time in a while, please pray to the sleepy fairies that he goes back to sleeping well?! Last night the longest stint was 2 1/2 hours <sob> he's having a spurt/adjust because night feeds are down to 30-40 mins for 1 1/4 hours plus.

Dp and i spend our evenings in bed with book/tablet, sometimes dvd or radio <rock n roll>

YellowWellies Wed 20-Feb-13 20:17:11

He he he PR you make me laugh - I love a good swear. Pass shock. on the blouse he he that sounds like something that would happen to me.

All good here just biting my nails down to stumps about the mortgage, could do with a fucking big bottle of wine wine !

DS normally falls off his perch between 7.30 and 9pm depending on if he fancies cluster feeding or how much he's slept in the day. Did a 7 mile walk this afternoon to watch the sunset and the little darling managed to stay awake in the buggy for over an hour shock little nap avoider - hence he's just crashed and burned in a hissy fit off to sleep...

GT lovely to hear from you xx

Pikz Wed 20-Feb-13 20:21:46

Glenda I love a dibdab

Laugh a lot my LO goes to bed between 6.45 and 7.30 every night. It's lovely to have an evening and LO sleeps til 12.30/1 and then til 4.30/5 and again til 7.30.

I thought I'd missed fucking Wednesday happy to hear I sodding haven't.

Detective all insurance companies are cunts.

Is it wrong that I'm a bit in love with James corden...

Pikz Wed 20-Feb-13 20:24:25

I found the upside of all the fucking expressing... I got on here... Now he's mainly on formula I don't get to read as much.

Shitting heck just poured red wine all down me...

BigPigLittlePig Wed 20-Feb-13 20:24:54

I'm off to fucking bed because dh is pissing me off snoring on the sofa so I can't fucking hear the fucking tv. Fuckity fuck it's making me cross.

Good fucking night one and all.

PetiteRaleuse Wed 20-Feb-13 20:27:40

One of the readons I love Dexter is because of how much his sister says fuck. Cracks me up.

ValiumQueen Wed 20-Feb-13 20:27:41

After going to bed, and I use the term loosely, between 11 and 1.30, J started going down at 10, then 9.30. Tonight he was in bed by 8 so wondering if that is him for a few hours, or if he will be up in 45 mins. He has napped really well today, but has been awake since 4 so was pretty tired. If I go to bed he will wake, if I stay up he will sleep. Law of sod.

When I added DH as a learner it was an extra £5 a month. When he passed, it was no extra. There are benefits to being over 40. I hope to get a small lease car through work, and have him insured on that too. I have decided to go back full time sad

pass I once got a detention for telling my Latin teacher his flies were undone. He was a bastard and used to throw things at us. I bet you felt dreadful about the blouse grin

PetiteRaleuse Wed 20-Feb-13 20:30:11

Just found a note in my bread bag. The bastard baker is taking three weeks holiday from Sunday. No bread delivery for three fucking weeks. Lazy cunts.

ValiumQueen Wed 20-Feb-13 20:30:57

One of the reasons I like Dexter is because I would love to fuck him grin

Night night fuckers, hopefully.

PetiteRaleuse Wed 20-Feb-13 20:32:02

That too VQ! sweet dreams

Pikz Wed 20-Feb-13 20:34:07

Nighty night VQ have fucking awesome dreams. Hope j sleeps.

Am realising I have no fucking clue who any of these Brit nominees are... I am getting old sad
