Dp won't pull a sicky and come to the beach angry humph so selfish.

(He's never pulled a sicky but I think this will make it less suspicious! wink In fact he's never had a day off sick in the whole time we've been together hmm)

Barbeasty Tue 07-May-13 07:29:35

I see your 5am attempt and raise you with a well and truely up baby and DD at 5.32.

I'm exhausted already! With wakings more frequently than every hour through the night...... Thank goodness I'm dropping DD with MIL for the day.

Looks like being another lovely day here. Thank goodness.

SpottyTeacakes Tue 07-May-13 07:49:25

Last sunny day, going to rain after today sad ds was up 9:30,12:30,3 and up for the day when dd came in at 5:50. Not too bad but I really need more than two and a half hours sleep in a row it's been going on too long now!

halestone Tue 07-May-13 08:40:20

Oh spotty think we'll make the most of the sunshine today thengrin think i'll put H in her swimming costume and use the baby bath as a paddling pool grin

Sunny here too, confusing me with what to dress ds in. Our room gets really warm (22-24 degrees) by O's bedtime, so he's currently sleeping in short sleeved vest and 1 tog bag.

He woke up really unhappy this morning and has been that way ever since. Can calm him with boob, a bit, but not sure. Changed him into a babygro in case it was a bit chilly so early in the morning, and he's now fast asleep hanging onto my boob. Poor baby. sad

No sign of teeth but he's been a lot more unsettled recently; bank holiday disrupting things or something else?

ISpyPlumPie Tue 07-May-13 09:02:12

Got the hv coming round any time between 10 and 12 this morning - hoping it's nearer to 10 as want to get out and enjoy the sunshine.

ISpyPlumPie Tue 07-May-13 09:06:15

Sorry, Utopian x-posts. Difficult to know really. Could well be teeth, think they start to bother them quite a while before there are any visible signs in their mouths. Having said that, the change in temperature is bound to be unsettling - let's face it, none of the UK-based babies have really experienced anything approaching decent weather before!

Hope he's more settled soon.

SpottyTeacakes Tue 07-May-13 09:14:08

There is never a day that does by when ds doesn't have at least one proper screaming/crying episode. It's ridiculous.

WillYouDoTheFandango Tue 07-May-13 13:10:16

Who's trying our the pampers? I've just got a pack through the post and can only imagine that's why, but I've not had an email or inbox with any information on it. Did you get one?

SpottyTeacakes Tue 07-May-13 13:26:22

Haha! Yes we are and I got an email. There's a thread about it somewhere... Possibly in product reviews or something?

WillYouDoTheFandango Tue 07-May-13 13:28:47

I found the thread, I'll message someone at hq and ask for email. Unless it just tells you to post somewhere else?

WillYouDoTheFandango Tue 07-May-13 13:29:14

What date was the email sent spotty?

SpottyTeacakes Tue 07-May-13 13:34:33

I can't remember it was ages ago they took a few weeks to send them out. I think they will have a review thread and want us to post on the review section

halestone Tue 07-May-13 14:18:17

Well the baby bath outside with water in was a huge success H loved it gringrin, i never want this weather to end grin

Secondsop Tue 07-May-13 14:53:56

Hello all. weejo thanks for the thread.

mamapo is this trip moving back to Aus or visiting? I'm sure C will be fine with the jet lag; Z adjusted within a few days. He did sort of help himself though by sleeping on the way there and being more
awake on the way back, which helped.

halestone bath outdoors is a great idea - I'll try that myself. Our bath is an over the bathtub one but does still stand up by itself I think. Next year I think we'll get a paddling pool!

Z is napping next to me on the sofa and I was drinking a glass of water and he suddenly jerked his arm up and spilt it all over me and not at all on him.

utopian99 Tue 07-May-13 15:06:10

hales bath outside is a great idea!

O has been feeding/sleeping all morning. Had a cool bath and nappy off time and now seems happier, so going outside plastered in factor 50 (in the shade.) I think some of the upset is slightly due to pinky arms from yesterday, even though I had factor 30 on him and in the shade.. (No factor 50 in my bag yesterday. BAD mummy.)

SpottyTeacakes Tue 07-May-13 15:13:30

Aww he must have sensitive skin utopian sad ds doesn't seem to be bothered by the heat he's no more grumpy than usual wink

I put cream on him today as only have patchy shade and he thought it was hilarious!

Secondsop Tue 07-May-13 17:11:33

The first time we put sunscreen on Z was in Australia and it was that neutrogena spray which is cold when you apply it. His little face when we first sprayed his leg with it was hilarious!

MaMaPo Tue 07-May-13 18:34:46

Seconds, this is just a visit back on my own with her, 3 weeks in all. Excited and filled with trepidation! Doesn't help that my normally sunny baby was replaced by a squealy grizzle-monster today.

C played on her tummy in the park today. Would not surprise me if she ate some grass.

halestone Tue 07-May-13 18:35:54

I just made the water slightly warm so it didn't shock her and put her toys in it. I think she was more shocked to have a hat on while she was in the bath haha. And then when she found she could reach the flowers whilst in the bath she pulled at them haha. I was going to get a paddling pool but thought the bath would have the same effect.

itsMYNutella Tue 07-May-13 21:23:33

Thanks for the new thread weejo. Just quickly checking in.
halestone love the outside bath idea.

After some glorious weather the last few days... today has been really crap sad just sort of grey and soggy. We have another bank holiday on Thursday (they stick to specific dates for the bank holidays, I really miss long BH weekends...) but at the moment we have nothing planned.... Everything will be shut so unless there is a special event on it could be pretty pants if the weather isn't up to much hmm

WLmum Tue 07-May-13 22:03:09

nutella did I imagine it or are you in Germany? If so, new study says its a better place to be a mother than the uk!

SpottyTeacakes Tue 07-May-13 23:50:26

First wake up shockshockshock that's almost five hours!

IsThatTrue Wed 08-May-13 03:07:23

shock spotty!

Well we're on our second wake up since 8.30 when he eventually went down. 3hrs then 4hrs sleep. Not too bad. But he's fidgetting now. hmm

SpottyTeacakes Wed 08-May-13 05:50:15

Yep he then woke at 2:40 now 5:50 so he practically did 5,3&3. I'm sure it won't last but it was lovely!
