Hi all.

Evie has been abit the same with her weight. She is a little up and down, between the 2nd and 9th centile and9th and 25th. She was only 6lb 6oz when she was born and is now 9lb 9oz at nearly 9 weeks. She is drinking between 4 and 6 oz every 2-4 hours (depending on time of day - every 4 in morning and 2 in afternoon and evening). HV says she has a nice round tummy and lots of padding on arms and legs so isn't worried but she just seems tiny compared to other babies.

She had her first jabs on Tues and hated them. She screamed and cried proper big tears, but was soon comforted and asleep by the time we got into the car. She hasn't had a temp or been grumpy but she was really sleepy yesterday.

She is sleepying through the night really well, usually from between 9 and 10 to between 6 and 7, so we are delighted Smile

Sounds like all the other bubs are doing really well. We are making the most of the nice weather and walking a lot.

Snoopy and Evie xx

Hi all,

Thankfully things with Lucas have settled down now. He has atopped throwing up all his feeds, no major coughing fits and most importantly no more visits to the hospotal or doctors.
He is feeding every 4 hrs normally between 4-7ozs and sleeps through the night from 11pm-6.30am Very Happy He last got weighed a week ago today and was 12lb 10oz although he is very long and has long feet so he is at the inbetween stage of clothes which is a nightmare. He would fit 0-3 if his feet werent too big Surprised

Tummymonkey - Lucas is also a noisy fist sucker and has been since he was in the NNU after he was born - it was them that gave him a dummy (I wasnt planning too) as they kept thinking he wanted a feed.

xx

Evie is also a noisy fist sucker. Me and OH wonder if she is trying for her thumb as when she gets it she has a good old suck.

Evie is still in newborn clothes at the moment as 0-3 is too big, but it wont be long. I think she is just an ickle pickle!!

She has also found her voice which is lovely. I love hearing all the little squeaks she makes.

Hi everyone. Had William weighed today.... 14lb 1oz. OH MY GOD!! He is enormous. He is 9 and a half week old. The HV didn't bat an eyelid but I nearly fainted lol. Embarassed Walked up to school for the girls which is just over a mile and mainly uphill, had to stop a few times and pretend to be checking on the baby Laughing I am really enjoying being a mummy again, funny because I wished Anna's life away, couldnt wait for her to crawl and walk etc, she obviously had other ideas because she was 19 months before she walked. Hope William walks quicker than that or I will have severe back issues when hes older if he continues growing at such a rate! Nice to here that everyone is doing well, William sucks his fist too, but he tucks his thumb into his fist so he hasnt found it yet. He won't take a dummy though. Iv'e tried loads of different ones, Anyway off to bed for me. Have a good weekend! x

Hi

Charlotte was weighed on Thurs & has put on 11 oz so am really pleased!! She now weighs 9 lb 11. She was 8 lb 15 when she was born. She is 10 wks today - God, where has the time gone??? The breastfeeding advisor at the hospital has leant me an electric pump so I can pump both breasts at the same time so I can start gradually replacing the 3 lots of formula I have been giving her a day as top ups with my milk. I have a manual breast pump which I have been using occasionally but this one will be much better & I will be able to get a lot more milk. So hopefully can stop the formula altogether soon now she is gaining weight better.
So it's been a bit stressful, especially as I had really sore nipples for a while too, which didn't help, but I'm OK now. Still determined to breastfeed for a bit longer yet.

We put Charlotte in her own room last night to try her out and she was fine! Was a little bit sad when we took her little crib down Crying or Very sad , but she is in her lovely cot with her toys and she seemed really happy.

How long did others keep their baba in their room with them? I know 6 months is recommended but so many people have said to me they didn't wait that long (sometimes 2 weeks!) and she seemed ready.

Hope you're all having great weekend
Lots of love xx

We use sleeping bags with Evie and have done from a week old. She loves to mover her arms around and sleeps with them up by her head so was always knocking off blankets. We have 1 growbag and 2 DreamPods from Mamas and Papas, both 2.5 tog. She just wears a sleepsuit with built in mitts and she sleeps for between 6 and 8 hours. It works for us but everyone is different.

HI all,

Have now put Lucas in a sleeping bag as he has started kicking his covers off and it helps him sleep better. He will be moving into his cot next week in a room with his big sister which i'm a little bit concerned about but we'll have to wait and see. Will miss him sleeping next to me as he is moving a few wks earlier than Lily-Mae did as he is too long for the moses basket!
My little man never seems to be very well. He has his cough and phlegm back and has also started wheezing so have been given an inhaler and yet more antibiotics - good job he is used to talking medicines, i think he thinks its normal Confused He has finally just settled for the first time today so i have a few minutes to myself while my other LO eats her raisins. Havent had Lucas weighed for a while but i reckon he must be at about the 14lb mark - will have to wait until next wk to see if i'm right.
