And maybe ends with 1st birthdays!!

Haha! Very apt title ladydolly!

Thisisimpossible Fri 14-Aug-15 12:22:24

havent how's your LO this morning?

ladydolly Fri 14-Aug-15 19:52:07

Tried to give a title that applied to all our very different babies!!

dp is out tonight which I've actually really looked forward to... takeaway, crap film, wine, early night and no one talking to me. Poor guy, he's really excited about the house move and wants to talk endlessly about it and with being back at work and trying to adjust I just desperately needed some alone time/quiet time. Of course baby is teething so not as keen on the quiet time...

Evening all! :-)

thisis thanks for asking - she's had a temp all day - last time I took it was just before her bath and it was 38.0...more calpol sad. She's also been off her food for the last couple of days and this morning she brought up all the milk she'd just drunk, both things are really unlike her sadsad. BUT I think that this evening I felt her 1st tooth! !! (Bottom RHS) so am hoping that this is the culprit and there's not something else wrong with her. ..

New thread!

havent hope your DD is better now, big hug to you!
Just got back from summer fair, DD was so excited about everything she went without naps till 1.30pm! And apparently pigs are THAT funny, she couldnt stop laughing.

haventgotaclue1 Sat 15-Aug-15 18:38:03

Ok. Please can someone reassure me. For 3rd night in a row dd has had temperature of 38.5 before bed. Have again given her calpol. Did her first ever projectile vomiting this morning (literally went EVERYWHERE), but after that seemed happy enough. Eaten more than yesterday and bf ok. Had huge dirty nappy and has been a bit grizzly (not normal).

Is this likely to all be down to the arrival of the 1st tooth? ??

Strawberryfield12 Sat 15-Aug-15 19:04:05

havent these are described as possible symptoms of teeth coming although in your case they sound quite heavy. Maybe its worth to get a doctor to rule out everything else? The temperature is quite high and its been for several days now. Better be prudent and on safe side x

Strawberryfield12 Sat 15-Aug-15 19:07:39

Also usually the first (front teeth) are supposed to cut relatively easy, its the back ones, which are supposed to be pain. Obviously every baby is different and possible that your DD is having it hard way from the beginning but better get med help to put yourself at rest as well.

ladydolly Sat 15-Aug-15 19:49:12

I've not heard of the vomiting symptom of teething? I'd get a doc onto it. Poor wee thing.

Dd also suffering with these top ones, much worse than the others, she would take a bite of dinner and then cringe with the pain. Ended up having a massive breastfeed to try and fill her up instead.

Hope everyone else is ok though!

Havent, sounds very like my DD was for a few days last week, seemed to peak that day she had the rash then calmed down. If you're worried, definitely see GP just for peace of mind. Does the fever respond to medication in between spikes? That's a good sign, if so.

Lady, hope your work days this week weren't too stressful, glad you got some quietish time to yourself.

DD stood up unsupported for a good eight or nine seconds earlier. I am not ready for her to be a big girl yet! shock

haventgotaclue1 Sun 16-Aug-15 06:33:13

Thanks all for your responses - that's why I love our little group smile. Yes twiglet, her temp does come down during the day - I'm being neurotic and keeping a record - so during the day it seems to be between 36.5 - 37 but it's at the beginning and end of the day that it jumps up. Still, am really hoping that when I take it in a moment it'll be down...she's just woken up after a 12 hour sleep! !!!!

Arkkorox Sun 16-Aug-15 08:42:40

Phew found you all! Thanks for the new thread ladydolly.

Haven't I hope babyhavent is okay.

Dd decided that having an audience of about 15 people was the required amount to unveil her new trick of pulling herself up to standing! She stood there for a good couple of mins while everyone applauded her and she had a face like this grin . She just makes me laugh all day, totally bonkers that child.

Sleeping is getting there, the hungry milk before bed really seems to help her do a longer stretch.

moggle Sun 16-Aug-15 09:10:53

Morning everyone! Will try to keep up better this time.
Ark I agree our babies are so entertaining at the mo... DD is learning to repeat things she does when they make us laugh... Amazing how they are changing and growing. When I see her standing I think gosh she really is more like a toddler than a baby now. Yesterday we had a family party and DD was transfixed by my cousin's super cute 18 month old, they played, ate and had a bath together (DD got wee-ed on, hahaha!). I'm not sure I'm ready to be mum to a toddler!

Thisisimpossible Sun 16-Aug-15 09:40:52

Uurrrrgh. We went to a wedding last night. The first night we've had out together on our own since DS was born. It was LOVELY!! I got over my panic about leaving him thanks to our lovely sitter, and we had a fantastic evening.

Being woken by DS at 6 this morning after a rather 'merry' evening last night was not so much fun though. However he did sleep through (something which seems to be becoming the norm since he learned to crawl --please don't let me just have jinxed it--) so I am thankful for small mercies.

MrsAukerman Sun 16-Aug-15 10:15:29

Aaarrgh. Just had a 15 minute nap from ds. Lunch should be fun!

Arkkorox Sun 16-Aug-15 14:02:39

What naps are your babies on now?

Dd has dropped them to 10-11 and then 2:30-4ish. Not sure this is enough mind you

MrsAukerman Sun 16-Aug-15 14:48:35

We have one at just after 9 which is usually 45 mins but can be 1hr30 if I keep him on my bed and help him into the second bit.
Same in the afternoon at 1.30ish. I'm trying to train him into doing 1hr30 each time with no input from me.

ladydolly Sun 16-Aug-15 14:53:32

twiglet I'm already doing the 'thinking of home when at work and thinking of work when at home' thing - how about you? Only in 2 days this week since cm is on hols. Then 5 days from next week onwards!

Ark I also have a little performer - I cannot get enough of people saying 'she's just so smiley!' after the dark crying colicky days when I used to describe her as 'serious'!

thisis I'm chuffed for your night out AND a sleep through!!

DD was up every 1.5-2hrs last night, definitely teeth related (and not excitement about today's city-chelsea match as dp suggested). Dp took over at 4 and I got another couple of hours head down.
Napwise she'll go around 9ish and do something between 45 mins and 2 hours. Then in the afternoon something around 1pm for an hour or so. Occasionally another 30min-1hr at around 4. I'm quite flexible about it and so is she but I do try and get as much as possible out of her.

This may be old news for some but top discovery for me is Inch Blue shoes. Since dd started crawling/standing/cruising and especially at the cm she's needed something on her feet but socks get filthy and stay on for approximately 0.7 seconds. These little slipper things are fab. But they are £20 a pop... I got mine unworn on ebay for £1.70.

eastmidswarwicknightnanny Sun 16-Aug-15 17:03:14

Lady dolly we used leather pram shoes like slippers from jojomaman bebe and little star for ds1 as he didn't walk til 18mths but cruised from 8mths. Ds2 has a pair but he isn't keen on moving his feet as he can roll and get around on his back.

happypotamus Sun 16-Aug-15 20:49:09

I have just Put DD to bed in her own room for the first time. I was sceptical the other day when DH said he would sort out all the stuff in there, clean the carpet and move her furniture in, but he has! Took nearly a hour to get her aslep in the cot though, so wish me luck. Didn't help that we also lowered the cot so she can't pull up on the side and fall out but discovered how loud pulling the side up is, and we hadn't worked out how to keep the cats out of there. I'm really looking forward to reading in bed again though even if I'm not looking forward to many hours of the night holding her in her room instead of in my bed.

haventgotaclue1 Mon 17-Aug-15 07:16:13

So dd's temp has been ok for last 24 hrs (phew!), but she's now developed a rash all over and especially her face. twig, how long did your LO have the rash for? Here, it appeared on Saturday pm and has got worse since. Will be in the queue for when the docs opens at 8 this morning sad
