SouthlandMum replied to topic are babies bigger than they used to be??

I have been thinking the same thing. I have no evidence for it though other than just reading the birth notices and thinking that there are a lot of 8-9lb babies in there and relatively few 6-7lbd...

SouthlandMum replied to topic Feed Play Sleep routine??

Hi I think the problem at that age is that they can only stay awake for such a short playtime that if they don't sleep for long then they are way ahead of schedule for their next feed (and the book...

SouthlandMum replied to topic is this normal for a two year old

DS is nearly 2.5 and he can also do all those things and slightly more. I can see he is ahead of most other 2 year olds that we associate with at playcentre etc but I would never consider him gift...

SouthlandMum replied to topic 3 month old rolling over

DS rolled at 3 months too and we used a Safety Sleep to keep him on his back. I have heard that once bubs can roll over then the risk of SIDS is much lower as they are generally a lot stronger etc...

SouthlandMum replied to topic Drying up?

I agree with PP, I would say he is going through a growth spurt. Keep feeding him as often as he needs and this should boost your supply and he should be more settled again. If you top him up with...
