Good morning yummy mummies
Well not even going to ask how everyone is I know, sleep deprived, hormonal, sore, grumpy........ but totally in love with our kiddies most of the time lol
Well this time 8 weeks agon, my prediction of having another bleed just came true and in 8 hours time Reagan was born
Time has flown and I am a little happy about that
Samuel is almost 21 months now and is slowly starting to get his 2yr old teeth, they haven't cut yet but the ferral nappies have started and I can see one under his gum, woo hoo it's almost over. Managed to get him into childcare today as they were closed on Tuesday for Melbourne cup. Somedays I feel so guilty for 'dumping' him there during the day especially when I am home, but I have to find comfort in the fact that he does like it and he gets to play with the other kids
Reagan is mostly good, she is a much better baby than Samuel was so I shouldn't complain but she does seem to have a never ending 'farting' issue which causes her great discomfort. Have resorted to the infants friend to help her out but thinking I am going to have to give up chocolate for a while, I think that is not helping her as well as my ****ty diet.
Had words with DH the otehr night, was it you Tricia that said your DH is good when they start walking etc, well Andrew is quite similar but he has made more of an effort after constant reminders that she cries much less than Samuel ever did
For those who have resorted to formula, I have heard nan is good, used Karicare with DS for a while to with no probs but it is trial and error unfortunately. Sometimes you can put a little extra water in the bottle if the formula is constipating them(I think it is about 30mls extra but check with your health nurse) Now as for feeling guilty, please go out shopping and try and pick which children are formula fed and which ones are breast fed, bet you can't, you are not a failure at least you are feeding your bubbas
Well better go, want to go shopping again today but need sleep but it is Friday so DH can do the 2am feed decisions, decisions.
Julie Anne if DS is being a pest during the night as long as he is well we usually let him cry it out, it takes up to an hour the first time, we usually go in twice in 10 mins then let him cry, yes I do feel bad but he always seems to forgive me when he wakes up. I don't cope with him in our bed as he fidgets so much then I get even less sleep
and Ange, I heard from Mel too, she is good but having trouble getting on the computer it's a popular item in her household atm
Bye for now
