Winzy - Hard call, really depends on your babies temperament (sp?). Some babies take change in their stride, others struggle. P & J were terrible when we went away, but S has been easy. In saying that, we had good and bad trips away with P.
Digby - I was terrified of having a vb with Sam. Fast labours are NOT easy. I was also terrified of bleeding because of my platelet problem, but once I got my head around things and put my trust in my Dr's everything went well. I had a big cry just before they put the drip in, and tried to let go of all the hurt and fear I'd felt with J's arrival. TBH I think I was in transition, S popped out 31mins later and it was a very healing experience for me and I will treasure it. I hope things go smoothly for you, let the middies know your fears because then they will be able to help/reassure you more.
LM- Good to hear from you mate! Molars, not fun. Sam is cutting his teeth all out of order, we've a molar, but are still missing front teeth. I have the ergo ready to go. Enjoy your week with Brett, but be warned, next week I'm going to start hassling you for a visit.
Lisa - I never did SOS, don't even know what it is. I'm old school, we do our own version of controlled crying. I've been a sook and not done it with S until this weekend, so annoyed with myself for not doing it months ago. Success, he slept through last night. BTW, I never let him cry for more than 5 mins at a time and I no longer offer bottles (the root of our problem). I hope things improve for you. S goes through phases of little naps, I think it's developmental. LATM he is only having 1 small nap but I think it's because his body is ready for walking, IYKWIM.
Shy - Nice to hear from you. Hope S sleeps better soon, so tiring. I was getting fed up with Sam and his sleeps, One 40min nap in the day and waking 2-3 times at night.
Waiting - You poor honey. Hope you get some relief soon and the Dr's can fix you up for ttc#2.
Liv - Great attitude! Come on miracle baby #2.
Apologies must get everyone out of bed and ready for school. S is so cute atm chatting on his "phone" all the time. More and more walking happening, but you can't comment or he sits straight down. Thanks for everyone who's friended me on FB. Must get some photos on there. Got myself in a spot of bother, had all DH's family wanting to be friends, didn't really want to, he has his own page. Felt bullied into it. Friended them, then thought bugger this and got rid of them. I'll be in the sh!t now. Oh well.............
