Quiet around these parts...Hope everyone is well!

Had a great day until my husband was an hour and a half late coming home from work and I lost it. Owen was in tears as was I! I'm having a medicinal wine right now.

Hi all,

Ben & I went for our 6 week doctors checkup and all is well original.gif  One of the elderly ladies in the waiting room came over and stroked his arms and face, i was thinking 'lady u better be here for a checkup and not some contagious illness!!'.

He's hit the 5kg mark already, so i guess i need to start looking at the next size of nappies soon!  I can't believe how fast they grow ...

Little fella is fast asleep.  Yesterday he was awake almost the whole day and then last night he zonked out and has basically been asleep ever since, just waking up for short feeds and falling asleep again.  I might actually catch up on some stuff today.

Hope everyone is doing great.  Looking forward to some more updates.

Hi Mummies,

Haven't been in here for awhile. Hope you are all well and bubs have settled down and re in some kind of routine rolleyes.gif oh to dream!!

William is two months old today sad.gif I love that he is growing up but at the same time I want time to stand still. We have only said that we would have two children so William is our last and I want to try and make it last!

Breastfeeding is doing really well for me now. William is fully breastfeed and is putting on 500g a week!! William is pretty much out of all his 0000's now. He is smiling alot and making lots of lovely cooing noises!

We are still co sleeping but thinking it is time for this to stop.

Off to watch a movie with DD while DH and William sleep on the lounge

Hope all is well with everyone !

Just wanted to share what I have been through in the past week. Alex is four weeks old today and about a week ago he became an absolute terror. Feeding ALL the time, and in between feeds he would be so unsettled and cry non-stop. I was at my wits end and a few days ago I really had a breakdown. I had to go to my GP and couldn't stop crying infront of him. I really felt like I was on the path to post natal depression and to top it off I developed insomnia and didn't sleep for three days straight and started to almost hallucinate.

A large part of the reason why I felt that way was breastfeeding. I felt so trapped because it seemed like that was all I was doing, I couldn't even step outside to go for a walk, and no one could help out because I couldn't express (I tried, but it just wouldn't happen). So two days ago I made the difficult choice to put him on formula. I beat myself up pretty bad about it but I just had to do it so I could have a night off and let my husband do the feeds. Since then (and I don't want to jinx things coz its only been two days), Alex is like a different baby! So much more settled. I don't know if it was a coincidence or maybe he just wasn't getting enough milk from me or something. But anyway I've decided not to feel so guilty about it, and just see how things pan out. I feel so much more free knowing that I can now ask my husband, mother in law etc to help with feeds sometimes when I need a break.

Sorry for the rambling ladies. BTW I didn't know there was a facebook group?

Wow, i havent been on EB since before bub was born, how slack am i Tounge1.gif i have been to busy keeping up with everyone from EBDIG on FB Tounge1.gif

For those from the other DIG
Hi im nicole,
I had my second child Marcus on the 22nd Feb 11, exactly 30 months 1 day and 2 and a half hours after my daughter charlotte was born lol
Charlotte was a emergency C section and Marcus was a glorious VBAC original.gif

We are breastfeeding, baby wearing, cloth nappy users, who follow attachment parenting and think tizzie should be institutionalised. but thats just me i dont judge if you follow tizzie, each to their own Tounge1.gif  original.gif i think that sums us up pretty well
look forward to getting to know the new girls (when i remember to come here) but for the regular DIG girls i will see you on FB waves.gif

Hi, thought I'd introduce myself to this group. My names Jess and my daughter Shyla was born on 3/2/11 (11 days overdue). We just moved into our newly build house which is very exciting as I could finally set up my daughters room as we lived in a one bedroom unit beforehand so she didnt have her own room yet. Looking forward to meeting all of you... I hope I am writing this in the right place as i noticed there hasnt been a post in a while
