New thread for us ladies

Checking in

FriendofDorothy Mon 25-Mar-13 22:11:03

The Little Mister took ages to go to sleep tonight. He was clearly knackered but refused to give in got hours.

In other news, I have a terribly sore wrist and have De Quervains tendonitis in it. The doc is talking about needing to do a steroid injection into it. It is so painful that picking up the baby is a nightmare which is horrid.

Just marking.. O has been snuffly all day, used a baby nose clear on him which worked a charm and almost made me hurl
He's going to be 3 months in 2 days; my friend just Facebooked a photo of her dh bathing their week old in a tub and she's soooo cute. (Still totally in love with ds though)

Just checking in.

FOD - that sounds nasty. Hope the dr can sort it for you soon.

brew

R has fed and slept well but the nappy i put on him at 6:15 was still dry at 11:45. I don't know whether to worry or not, he seems ok otherwise confused

Ouch FoD. I have a friend who has to have steroid injections in her elbows -not nice.

First wake up here, although he actually just had a massive coughing for so I swooped in and got him up confused

Ds is four months tomorrow shock

Thank you for the new thread Willyou.

Yay Clarella, i hope you have a lovely time breastfeeding now grin

Wow Mama that must of been some letter, to get the refund grin

FOD that sounds painful, hope your ok.

Pidj for some reason H doesn't seem to wee alot of a night, maybe R is following suit grin

Spotty did you do the dream feed in the end or has DS managed a good sleep without it?

I didn't do the dream feed he went six hours confused I can't get back to sleep now though.

Pidj is he well otherwise? Soft spot not sunken? I can't remember what I've been told when dd's been ill it's either four hours or six hours. Sorry that isn't much help...

halesball Tue 26-Mar-13 01:21:20

Utopian, hope your DS is ok and not feeling to rubbish.

WL i agree with Mama, sleep worse here as well. So i'll jump on the solidarity bus grin

Got Heidi's 3 month pics taken today, the difference is amazing, she barely looks like the same baby. The photographer also took pics when she was 9 days old so she put a pic of then and now. Its hard to see the difference when your with them everyday but shes really changed. I can't wait for the disc to be edited and sent out grin typically she refused to smile as much as she normally does though ha.

halesball Tue 26-Mar-13 01:23:09

FX you get back to sleep soon spotty its so annoying when that happens xxx

halesball Tue 26-Mar-13 01:24:36

Oh and last message before i stop hounding the thread haha. I say go for it Honey, enjoy yourself trying and hopefully it'll happen soon for you. How exciting for you grin

PurplePidjin Tue 26-Mar-13 01:39:42

I normally do at least one nappy at night because he wees so much. Head is fine, I'm not sure where the soft spot is but can't feel any sunken bits? Second feed only an hour after he went down from the first angry

Secondsop Tue 26-Mar-13 02:29:47

Hello thanks for the new thread willyou

Last day in Australia today. We've just about recovered from the bug although my husband has to take immodium to get him through the flight. More than ready to go home now, if I'm honest. I miss my house and my cat.

IsThatTrue Tue 26-Mar-13 04:07:16

Thanks for the new thread willyou

Well last night DS decided that sleep is for wimps. He didn't sleep for more than 15 minutes total from 2.30-10. He's never been awake that long before. I ended up having to rock him to sleep while pacing the bedroom. Normally he just feeds to sleep. Not sure what was wrong but we're already on our third wake up since, so something is obviously not right poor thing!

EggsMichelle Tue 26-Mar-13 04:19:47

FoD that sounds nasty, do you need a brace?

We have had a terrible week for sleep, but finally we have gone 7-3 again. A bit of a monster to go back to sleep but think he's finally settled. Hope those having a sleep regression are reassured it doesn't last forever.

What are people's thoughts on cot bumpers? I'm sure I remember them being outlawed a few years ago, but they are still sold I'm shops. F appears to be loving the freedom of his cot, but bumped his head at 1am on the bars and was crying.

Furious with DHs work (grr NHS) he started his job full time on 11th feb, and he has been paid for the first time the equivalent of 5days work. And i have been paid £120 more than last month. What the hell is going on? They couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery.

MaMaPo Tue 26-Mar-13 05:00:43

Morning all.

C has woken and needed resettling at least hourly. Feeding now. So tired abs more scared of sleep regression than ever!

IsThatTrue Tue 26-Mar-13 05:50:34

eggs I managed to get a. 'Breathanle' cot bumper ford ds2 when he wouldn't sleep in the crib as it was too open. Ill look up the make, but it's mesh so doesn't restrict airflow. He's had this on since ~5 weeks.
So. So, tired! <yawn>

This is our second wake up. Not sure if he'll go back to sleep or not. Dd came in and I looked at her, poked dp and said 'dds awake' and dd went 'felix is awake too!' Well he is now hmm

Hope it's a pleasant flight for you seconds.

Sorry for all the rubbish sleep are they too young for the four month sleep regression? I'm expecting it any day as I'm not sure if it'll happen at his actual age or corrected age.

Pidj if he hasn't weed by now I'd see a dr but I'm sure he will have smile

Hmm ds seems to be asleep having hardly reduced the engorgement of my boob hmm

IsThatTrue Tue 26-Mar-13 05:51:25

Obviously being this tired and typing don't mix

<ahem> breathable!

Oh yes cot bumpers. They are supposed to be dangerous. The mesh ones IsThat advised are fine though. I had one for dd but not until she was over six months confused PFB grin

PurplePidjin Tue 26-Mar-13 06:04:22

Yes, one good soggy nappy about an hour after i posted. Dreadful night, think my regression only occurs on Tuesday as he sleeps adequately all other nights hmm

SeymoreInOz Tue 26-Mar-13 06:12:22

Tuesdays are always bad days for us, I don't know why. confused

DS had his 4 month jabs yesterday morning at 11am, it's now 5pm the following day and he's still burning up. Calpol isn't even touching the sides, did anyone else have this?

honey not sure if you'll read my post on the other thread but I have a friend who got pregnant while ebf her pfb, he was 4 months old when she conceived so it's definitely possible! grin

EggsMichelle Tue 26-Mar-13 07:12:36

Thanks IsThat, found them on amazon. Seymore do you have an nhs direct equivalent over there? Otherwise give your GP a call.

SeymoreInOz Tue 26-Mar-13 07:41:26

Thanks eggs I realised I've been being dim and dosing DS according to his age rather than his weight! I increased the last dose and his temp came right down and he's gone to sleep.
