Victoria I hope the BBQ went ok and hopefully the scans will come back with good (ish) news, if that makes sense. Its amazing how brave some people are, I know if it was me I wouldnt be so strong of course we dont mind you talking about everything on here!
Gem hope the soreness goes away soon
oh there is Emma awake!
Gem / Claire, Thanks Girls x x x
Grace is now on 'Colief' which really worked with Mia's colic so hopefully she will benefit too. I bought Grace a baby bouncer chair yesterday from Argos, if youre after a bargain girls.... go get one... its the Mama's & Papa's one reduced to £24.99 it bounces, vibrates and play music and animal and sea sounds... its fab and Grace likes it enough to sit in it and fall asleep!!! YAY!! Its neutral colours so is great for all of us, best one ive ever had (and have already taken 2 other makes back because of no head support or poor quality).
Right, only popped in to check on you all. Gem, it does get better, i kept snapping at mia initially, but have calmed down now - i dont think it helps being in pain, so now my pain has gone my patience has returned.
Not added on here for ages. Its abusy job this mummy thing isn't it?!
Victoria, thinking of you, your sister sounds like an amazing person. We're all here when you need us. x
Oooo those c-section scars sound painful, gues Iwas really lucky.
Now I know someone on here is a breastfeeding helper (don't know the correct term-counciler maybe) I've stuck with the BF after a very rocky start and so pleased I did as it is getting easier. Bought the magic cream that was recommended. But as I lost a piece of skin off one nipple (ouch) as Rosie wasn't latched on properly initially was just wondering if it'll heal and how long it'll take. It doesn't hurt like it did, just a bit when she first goes on.
Got Rosie dressed all in pink today, took her shopping and 2 people asked what my little boy was called. Well I know she has short hair but she is only 4 weeks old.
Anyway can hear the little one stirring. Must go.
Kathy and Rosie
Kathy, I have had a few 'oh isnt HE cute' comments despite the pink hat...lol
Gem, Glad Isaac is settling, and sounds like he is doing really well! x
Grace is now on Colief (and Yes Jenny, it is expensive £11.99 for 7mls, but we now get it on prescription - so thats a blessing!!) I have also bought some of the Cow & Gate Comfort milk, its thicker and has less lactose, so see if that works.
Just washed Grace down (she hates the bath - although seems to love the hairwash) love the smell of baby hair.
Anyway better go,
Gem I know what you mean about part of your tummy not belonging to you its because the nerves have been cut into so there is no feeling, it does come back but if I remember it takes over a year or so its weird isn't it!
Jenny being a mammy is great for making friends with the same interests isn't it? I am glad you have made some friends and are keeping busy, its great for the babies too. Grace has gone to groups from being born and has a close group of friends and it has done wonders for her confidence.
The other day in asda she walked up to a lady and her little girl in the cafe and sat next to them, told them about her day, introduced me and Emma to her and took her dinner over to sit with them! I am so proud of her confidence but am slightly concerned about ''stranger danger'' lol!
Kathy that nipple incident sounds very painful! I had some hanging off and it kills! I use nipple shields all the time now and its working out great. It helps too as the milk goes in them and some stays in when she is finished so I know she is getting some!
Grr was going to catch up but Emma just woke!
Bye for now
Just popping on to ask a quick question. When Rosie was about 2 days old she had blood in her nappy, I phoned the midwife who assured me this was normal and it was a withdrawal from my hormones and thats how it showed up as she is a little girl and her own hormones kicked in. Well yesterday I noticed she has a lump behind one of her nipples, took her to the doctors and they said that this is also hormonal as she is breast fed and getting some of mine too. She also has what i'd call milk spots but are also called baby acne. Has anyone else experienced this with their little girls? It seems really strange to me but i've been assured its totally normal and will settle down in the next couple of days.
Claire your little one souds fantastic, what a great way to break the ice with people, I find that really difficult. I'm sure its a big north/south thing with talking to people. I'll chat to anyone (being northern) i'm living in SE London and when I talk to people here they look at me like i'm crazy.
Jenny I hope to join some of the groups too, just need to be brave and get myself and Rosie up dressed and ready to go early enough as they all start at half 9. Not quite cracked mornings yet.
Kathy all of those things are normal and have all 3 with both of my girls, its just a sign of things to come with the torture of being a woman lol poor things! I am sure you will get used to getting up and about early enough to go to groups, I live in hope that I will soon! I highly recommend them I have made some very close friends throughout the years via my kids!
Gem, nice talking to you at 3am again, it's becoming a bit of a habit now so when youre not there I miss you lol! wow 5oz in 2 days is impressive what are you feeding him? condensed milk????
Emma was weighed the other day and put on 8oz in a week so is now 9lb 1oz I am so proud of her (and myself as never thought I could do it for this long)
Did anyone see the extraordinary breasfeeding programme on Watch last night? OMG! I know I am keen to breast feed but 7 years old is a bit excessive lol! Oh well each to their own!
Hope everyone is well
ooooooh by the way, its my birthday on monday and got my present early, check this out!!!
Gem its free listing on ebay this weekend so I may do the same.
Christopher has his sports day later yey! and have a friend visiting this morning so a nice busy day planned
Hi Gem - Im ok - thanks for asking x
Ive only skimmed over the posts ive missed but sounds like everyone is really busy socialising and doing the mummy things.
Well, life slowed down for me on Friday 10th June, my beautiful brave Sister passed away in my Mom's arms at home (my mom and dads house). It was her funeral on Friday (17th) so this week has been a blur, i cannot believe she has gone. I am so sad, and miss her so much.
Thanks Gem & Kathy, still very raw, and feel extremely sad. I feel like ive lost part of myself. We were so very close and i think i will always miss her. seems so surreal.
Hope you are all doing ok.
