Oh Congratulations Laura, Hope little Georgia is doing ok... welcome to the October clan!
Lily and I have been back into hospital for two nights, went in 11am on Saturday on the request of my midwife with just the changing bag and baby..... and ended up not leaving till 4pm Monday
Poor little lily had to survive in a sick covered babygro... I felt like such a bad mummy..lol!
We went in cos Lily hadn't pooed for days and we had had no yellow poo yet so they were worried that her bowels might not be working, plus she was feeding CONSTANTLY which was a concern. It turns out that my milk production is not meeting her needs so the Paediatrician has said to top up on formula which I'm now doing.
She's pooing like a little star now though!!
But on top of all that I've got mastitis which is the most painful thing ever... possibly worse than labour... and I am having to feed her through it which makes me cry everytime
How are all the other October babies doing?? Anyone else causing as much trouble as my little Lily?? I hope not !
Keep us informed of all your progress,
Scamp and Lily xxxxx

awww scamper sounds like poor little Lily has a had time of it but glad she's poohing like a trooper now lol. Tyler was constipated for a few days so we were giving him extra water and then we started using colief drops... all of this combined made a chicken korma sauce explosion. Funny how your own baby pooh doesn't bother you
Hows everyone else getting on? Tylers just found his tongue and is quite often sticking it out which is so funny.

Hi ladies, just got round to posting my birth story.
Scamper, that must have been a bit of a concern to you but glad Lily is doing ok now.
Hope the mastitis clears soon, my nips are cracked and have been bleeding and that was bad enough. I too have had to combine formula and breast - feel awful but I am determined to work through the pain.
Mummajade, I wish my baby slept through till 4 (mind you Tyler is a bit older). Overnight James is asking to be fed every hour, sometimes half hour and it's awful. I am trying to keep him awake a bit more in the day (starting today) so we will see what tonight brings. My OH is going away on a course tomorrow until Friday so I will be alone at night with him and am dreading it, Mum has offered to stay to help me with everything. I love your description of the chicken korma sauce explosion - thats the perfect way to describe it and I have experienced a few of those

tyler has woken at 3 and not wanted to go back to sleep... AT ALL but we've been going out a lot with him and of course he falls asleep as soon as he's in the car so it's been messing him up but since we've tried to keep him awake more in the day (have tried to keep him between 1 and 2 hours after each feed) he is getting better at night he now wants a feed at about 2 and normally goes through to 6 (ish) hopefully sometime soon we'll actually be able to sleep till 7
plus my nan is going home tomorrow so I won't need to keep taking him out every day to see her we can try and get in a better routine (I convince myself that I've got tyler in a routine but actually deep down now he does what he wants when he wants it just happens to be slightly more convenient than it used to be) lol.

Can i join please! My gorgeous little man, Noah James, joined us on 25th October 2009.
He's terrific, but he is a little nocturnal and doesn't seem to understand the difference between night and day. Although, I don't mind too much because he is definitely worth every single sleepless moment.
Other than that, everything is going brilliantly. No problems breastfeeding - the MW seemed to think he'd been here before! He's definitely a boob man!
