jaesmummy i have added you hun.
I'm 42 and DH is 45 - we're expecting our first (IVF) in 7 weeks. I'd love to chat to other mums in our age group. Hope everyone is doing well
Good to see some activity here. Well I'm now 34wks and starting to absolutely panic as it gets closer. This pregnancy has not gone without its problems so I'll be just glad when it's finished and I have bub in my arms. Is anyone here on the Goldie, would love to make contact as I don't have any friends here and am really starting to miss it.
Hi everybody! Well I've been pretty busy since bub arrived - can't believe he's nearly five months! Am having to wean him because he's cut two teeth and has given me mastitis twice , midwife said it was time to go on the bottle. He's started solids too - such a hungry little fella! Anyway I saw this article today and thought others might like to read it too, great to see some good news about older mothers: http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/nati...917-262po.html
Im 43, almost 44 and 8 weeks oregnant, wow
Congratulations! First bub?
I'm 49 in march and have 3 kids. I had first at 34, second at 38 and our third ( natural conception) at 47. It can happen!
I am in Far North Qld.
Just read 'trying for two's post. I don't think you have received very good advice about putting your almost 5 month old on the bottle.
It is definitely no reason to put them onthe bottle just because they have 2 teeth and you have had mastitis!
Can't believe the bad advice given sometimes! Please contact the Australian Breastfeeding Association for correct advice. So sad that someone has told you this. Breastmilk is recommended by the World Health organisation for at least 2years and beyond. NOTHING can replace the health benefits breastfeeding provides for your baby! Not even formula!!
Hope you have received the right advice by now and have someone who can support you! You CAN go back to breastfeeding after weaning if you choose.
Sorry for rambling on. I hate mums being given the wrong advice. There is no way a baby can give you mastitis either by the way.
