Star - for butter you want either Vitalite or Pure. Every supermarket I've been to has one or the other.

pistachio - unusual for us to feel differently about something! Why the hatred of medised?

Phew! Made it to the new thread! smile

Midwife in hospital told us she couldnt do bath demo until an hour after she's feeding. Its the main reason she's so grumpy at bathtime, that hour is hard work!!!

Star – I made that cake yesterday too! It’s yum isn’t it? I like the fact that there are no eggs/dairy in it but doesn’t taste too “worthy” if you know what I mean.

CSWS – I’d say ds sleeps around 12 – 14 hours a day. Most of that is at night at the moment as naps tend to be very short. He’s averaging 3 half-hour naps per day at the moment unless I’m out and about with the buggy or sling in which case he’ll sleep a bit longer. At night he tends to wake every 3 hours for a feed.

He is very grizzly at the moment, red cheeks and very dribbly. I’ve noticed that his poo is quite mucousy which I’m assuming is because he’s swallowing so much saliva. He had his jabs last week as well, so I don’t know if he’s unsettled because of that, or if it’s his teeth.

Myjob – how are you and dd today?

Honeymoonmummy Tue 03-Feb-09 11:41:13

I've just noticed I have vomit on my shoulder hmm

aubergenie Tue 03-Feb-09 11:48:30

Honeymoon, I have a permanent splodge of vomit on my shoulder. Mmm attractive. Dp gave me a hug the other day and said I smelt of Stanley. What he actually meant was that I smelt of sick.

Honeymoonmummy Tue 03-Feb-09 11:53:12

Ha ha Aubergenie, who says romance is dead??? What's a hug anyway??? envygrin

Honeymoonmummy Tue 03-Feb-09 11:57:07

God there's a lot of names on that list I don't recognise...

Marthasmama Tue 03-Feb-09 11:57:43

Hello! I thought we'd need a new one soon! Aubergenie - Stanley! FANTASTIC name!

Honeymoon - I have crusty bogies on my right boob because Martha has a horrible cold and wiped her nose on me when I was cuddling her.

My poor DS went to a party on Saturday and they had a face painter. He was painted as a tiger and now has burn makes all over his face from the black paint! angry He is usually ok with face paints so heaven knows what they put on him! He had a bath as soon as he got home but the damage must have been done. He looks like he's been branded.

pepperrabbit Tue 03-Feb-09 12:03:33

Hello! oooh shiny new thread.smile
Snowing here again this morning - will we be housebound forever???
The DS's are beginning to get cabin fever with school and preschool closed - we have a friend coming to play this afternoon but I wouldn't be at all surprised if she didn't want to drive here.

4andnotout Tue 03-Feb-09 12:10:04

Morning all

No snow left here now I really wanted to be snowed in! Not as much as dp wanted it though hmm He wanted a love-in wink

Tilly-Grace is very unsettled today, have just given her some calpol but she is dribbling and chewing her fist and hates being away from me today.

DD3 is tired now after eating her lunch and is sitting stroking my hair, hoping she will have an afternoon nap, so i can!

myjobismum Tue 03-Feb-09 12:11:22

Hello all - panicked trying to find you there for a moment - not only did the other thread run out so suddenly, but i still havent got to grips with the new mumsnet yet!

Well today is a much happier day in the Myjob house smile thank goodness! Naomi slept 10-12.30 then 1 til 7.30 yay - my happy smiley baby is back (at least for the time being) and for that i am grateful!

Star - yipee for Quinlan getting the hang of sleeping!

Jenwa - sounds like P is doing really well! hope both DDs are ok after thier jabs yesterday (that was you yes? have got a bit lost on the thread change!)

Martha - oh your poor DS hope it heals ok!

aubergenie - sorry but had to LOL at you smelling like Stanley grin how flattering wink

CSWS - i am feeling alot more confident today - Naomi is happy and healthy i can see that for myself now - thank you.

Loulou - thanks for reassurance about overtiredness! hope all is ok with Joe today!

Honeymoon - we always bath before feed here - works well for us at the mo!

Ronshar - Nothing to be ashamed of, no plans to add any solids yet, but to each thier own i think!

Sorry if missed anyone - will be back later hopefully but going out for a walk in the snow now!

blush added <whispers...5> new pics onto bottm of profile! blush

Marthasmama Tue 03-Feb-09 12:20:38

Myjob - I meant to say yesterday... N would not be sleeping as long as she does if she was hungry. She must have a big full tummy from all that lovely breast milk. grin

Honeymoonmummy Tue 03-Feb-09 12:46:26

Maybe she's getting revenge from you sticking your nipple up her nose MM hmmgrin

Good news MyJob, are you gonna contact HV?

star6 Tue 03-Feb-09 12:55:41

honeymoon - I bathe Q at about the same time every night but he feeds whenever, so sometimes it's right after a feed.... I think the warm water helps him wind better. It's never harmed him. hmm go ahead and bath whenever you want! Silly to wait an hour imo.
Yay Myjob!!

pepperrabbit Tue 03-Feb-09 12:57:05

myjob, glad you're both feeling better today!
cute photos smile

star6 Tue 03-Feb-09 13:28:39

cute photos myjob. She seems to be "growing up"... so that's good!! She's growing and changing, maybe she's just little and always will be little!

star6 Tue 03-Feb-09 17:55:00

ok blush had sex this snow day afternoon during ds nap. hurt like crazy and had actual flashbacks of dh holding my arms down in hospital while a random doctor shoved hands inside me as I screamed repeatedly for him to "make it stop because it hurts!!" was horrible. totally devestated. dh has no idea how horrible. I took a walk outside alone after and cried. I hate sex now. I think our marriage is doomed sorry to be so dramatic. I feel like things will never be the same again.

Marthasmama Tue 03-Feb-09 18:24:25

Star - Oh dear me! That sounds horrible for you! sad Do you feel like you can't talk to DH about it? Why was he holding your arms down in hospital? I imagine that would have been pretty tramatic for you. You need to talk to somebody, it sounds like you need to work through the horrible bits of DS's birth.

I can't imagine what that was like for you. With DS I was drugged out of my head and with DD I had an elective c-section. Try not to worry that your marriage is doomed, there is a lot you can do to help yourself. Birth can be such an ordeal and you're probably suffering some sort of post tramatic sress!

Marthasmama Tue 03-Feb-09 18:25:43

I mean traumatic, I have a cold again so my brain's broken.

Honeymoonmummy Tue 03-Feb-09 19:20:29

Sorry to hear that Star, I would echo MM's words but also say that I remember not so long ago you couldn't even contemplate doing it again so look how far you've already come. It'll get better again, it might just take time. smile

myjobismum Tue 03-Feb-09 19:23:50

Oh Star - don't be blush - felt so sad for you reading that post, you poor poor thing. If I remember correctly you suffered pain even before getting pregnant didn't you? Is you DH aware of any of this? your marriage isn't doomed, yes sex is an important part of a marriage, but lots of other things are important too, it is by no means the be all and end all! I know it seems impossible right now but in time and with the right help you will be able to sort it out. Lots of love to you sweetheart - well done for even trying at all, i know how scared you were.
