Sleeplessness is killing me slowly :-(

Hi greenie I'm sure you probably have this already but did you try white noise? I downloaded an I tune of white noise onto my phone and whenever deelet wakes when she shouldn't or struggles to sleep, I turn the noise on as a loop beside her and she's asleep within minutes. In fact, I have it on now as i type as she was crying and I knew she was tired and she happily snoozing away. It sounds like rain or static and is magical - the best euro I ever spent. Good luck!

Toy recommendations for 7 month old?

I just had to comment on the Vtech ball. I was given one and while Deelet is a little young to pass any notice yet, Freddie the dog is terrifed of it. He knocked against it by accident the other day, causing it to move and make noise. The poor dog nearly lost his life and spent the rest of the evening eyeballing it from a safe distance. It is indeed evil!

Advice on dropping the dream feed?

I am embarassed at all the typos in my last post - damn I phone and its predictive text!. BGE, she rarely drinks straight after she wakes up an John has a wee play around (called Fly baby...)with her before her feed. Right, I'll try and not wake her at night and see what happens. Ill keep you posted.

Advice on dropping the dream feed?

Hi girls, Thanks for that. I've asked a few of my parent friends and my own mum and mil and everyone has given me more or less the same advice which is she is too young and small just yet to remove the feed. She is about 11- 12lb now so is small for her age - still in 0-3m clothes. So bge, maybe your sleep specialist is right - she's too little to sleep the night yet. She takes a full bottle at night. I don't mind doing the feed, I'm always awake at that stage anyway and sleep till 8am ad John d...

Advice on dropping the dream feed?

Hi, My dd is 3 1/2 months old and we're lucky in that she's a good sleeper. She goes to bed at 7pm and sleeps through till 6.45-7am, but has a dream feed at about 11.30pm, for which I have to wake her. She has been sleeping like this for about 2 weeks, before that waking every 4 hours. I want to eliminate the dream feed but don't know how to do this. Do I gradually pull this back to 11pm, then 10.30pm etc or should I just let her sleep through and see how long she goes? She is normally quite dee...

Post Baby body - please share your experiences!

Jasper, I agree about high waisted trousers - brilliant! And chilli. I have one Of those swim suits, I'm afraid my bikinis are packed away for this summer at least. I forgot to say, but on the positive side - my hair has never been thicket and my nails are as hard as diamonds! I'm enjoying it while it lasts(-:

Post Baby body - please share your experiences!

Golly gosh, not many pinging back into shapes immediately!! It is worth it and I would hang my boobs out of my ears for dd but it would be nice to think that all the hard work and exercise will pay off. Doesn't help that since dh had his heart attack he's in the best physical shape of his life and looks very buff...

Post Baby body - please share your experiences!

Hi, I would love to hear from other mummies out there about their experiences of how their body has changed since having baby/ies!. Here's mine: I had Deelet 15 weeks ago today and because she was a tiddler (5lb13) I was lucky enough to put on only about 1 stone and lost it pretty quickly through bfing and the obvious minusing of her weight from mine!. I'm now back to my pre pregnancy weight of 9 1/2 stone buuuut things are just not the same!. My clothes fit but not the same way as they did befo...

can i request a change in medication?

Hi 2Angels, I've used both (in fact I've used gestone jabs too!) and my clinic didn't really mind which was used. I preferred crinone and in fact used that on my bfp which resulted in my daughter. However, it did cause a wee bit of spotting and so I changed to 1 crinone and 1 gestone per day. Ask them, I'd say they won't have a problem with changing - after all, its all progesterone!

Pink Discharge

Hi Dad to be, Moonshines advice is spot on - contact your midwife, just to put your mind at ease. She may offer you another scan just for reassurance. As you say, if there was a lot of prodding going on there it could have caused a little irritation. xx

Sleeping through!!

Are you ladies trying to rub it in?????? I sadly do not have your problem but I would imagine once the baby is gaining weight at the appropriate level then enjoy the blissful silence. My 14 week old has only very recently gone from feeding every 4 hours to between 5 and 6hours.

How do I eliminate the middle of the night feed?

Well after all that, deelet went from 11.30 until 5am this morning!! Did nothing different, she took the same amount, everything, just slept 2 hours longer... I don't know, maybe the advice my mum told me is true. She said "dee, shell take after you and do exactly what she wants to do, not what you want her to"!!

How do I eliminate the middle of the night feed?

Thanks girls. I know it's early to br dropping a feed but I seem to be going backwards as opposed to forwards. I considered dropping the dream feed and letting her sleep until she's hungry but I was afraid that she would then wake at 1 and then 5. In any case, I'm normally still awake at 11.30 so it's no hardship to give her that feed. I'll try diluting her formula - I was kinda doing that anyway, giving her 4 spoons instead of 5. It isn't too bad. The 8 o click feed takes only about half hour b...

How do I eliminate the middle of the night feed?

I tried the water one night and she took it great only to wake again 30 mins later looking for food so I was up twice!! She is hungry I think even though she takes only 2-3 oz and the same at 7am. My friend said she could be reducing the time between feeds as Aptamil is light and could be lighter than breast milk? I forgot to add that she was a small baby, only 5lb 13 when born. Through exclusively bfing she was up to over 9 1/2lb at 8 weeks. Haven't had her weighed since but going by her clothe...

How do I eliminate the middle of the night feed?

Hi there, I'm looking for some advice from the experienced!. Deelet is 11 weeks old and I want to start getting her to sleep longer at night. Currently her daily routine is: Wake 7.30am feed, sleep 9-10, then bath, 10:30 feed. We go out then until about 1pm and she sleeps in the buggy for about 1-2 hours. Feed at 1.30pm and she plays/looks around for an hour or so then another nap followed by more play. 5:00 feed and a nap. Then at 7:30 I start the bedtime routine of bringing her upstairs, putti...

Please Help - Crinone and Spotting :'(

Hi optimist, Don't stop taking the crinone unless your clinic advises - it's doing an important job. I had spotting while taking it, very similar to what you've described. Sometimes the spotting was even salmony coloured and used to come out as pinky cottage cheese looking. This was the crinone mixed with blood and as the others have said is a result of the gel aggravating your cervix which is already soft from the pregnancy. Try not to worry - my clinic told me that up to 75% of women using cri...

5th time lucky...or not?

Hi j&m, I'm so sorry that youve been through the mill but there are avenues you can investigate before you go down the surrogacy route. Have you looked into immunology testing? When there is repeated implantation failures, where there is nothing obvious wrong with either party, quite often there is a problem with regard to immunology, and that covers a multitude! There is a fantastic section on this site with lots of info, have a rummage through. I'd also suggest you read dr beers book "is your ...
