i've just had about enough of all this.
Tia... during school week she wants to sleep in til 8 every morn... everyday for the last week she has woken at 5 sad comes into our room and wakes Noah so i have to get up. and then she is full on from there until she goes to bed. straight up wants brekky (no i havent had my coffee yet lol)
so most days i start my day at 4:30, when Alex wakes for a feed, by the time ive changed fed burped and settled him again Tia is awake and if by any chance she doesnt wake Noah up he is usually awake at 530. then Alex is up from 6-8 and in that time he usually needs another feed and can be quiet demanding/unsettled so i have to carry him, whilst trying to get the others brekky and drinks etc and making sure they dont get into mischief. Issie usually wakes 7-8 (my good girl lol) except this morn cos she was in our bed and Tia woke us all up at 5.
and today its raining so theres no chance i can chuck them outside for a while, as it is im sitting here in pants and jumper and they are running round in knickers and jocks ... crazy children.
i kinda forgot how demanding Tia was sad lol and cos she has learnt stuff at school (like how to be more controlling lol) she is constantly trying to drag the other two around and make them do what she wants, so then we end up with screaming (which i had 3 doing at 530)
apart from that they are good...
Alex on the other hand is for sale, his cutness just doesnt make up for his problems lol so far in his very short life : born at 36 weeks, heart murmur, constipation, reflux, chest infection, upper respiratory infection, diarrhea, wrong immunisation, and now he has oral thrush, mild dehydration and constipation. because of the thrush he cant suck his bottles properly, hence the dehydration/ and unsettledness. the constipation cos he isnt getting enough fluid. the stuff i got from the chemist for the thrush doesnt seem to be working, when i first got it he only had spots on his tongue, now his tongue is covered its on his lips and cheeks and gums. so taking him to the docs today at 11, going to ask about dairy intolerance (which i found out is quiet common in reflux babies) so might have to change his formula again sad
and because of all the above stuff he isnt sleeping all that well... period.
so most of the day he is unsettled and in my arms, which makes it hard dealing with the others, of a night i can get maybe 2 hr stretches. his gone from drinking almost 200ml to 40 every hr or so which is time consuming especially cos it takes 20+ mins to feed him that 40ml when before he was drinking 200ml in 20 mins sad
anyways have to go the kids are into mischief ...again
