    Thanks Amum. It feels like she had just settled into the babies room. They say she settles once I leave and is fine. But it's still hard dropping her off when she's calling out to me as I walk out the door...horrible. Truth is I have no choice anyway. I need the days to work. It's hard not to worry though and wonder if it's the room, or the kids or the carers, or just that it's change.

    BK - Evie has cracked it every week I've dropped her off at daycare this year, I hate it, but I know she's fine once I'm gone and she's distracted with activities, she is even sleeping better there lately. Today and last week when I picked her up she hasn't even noticed me until I call her. I'd say it is just the change of rooms for Ruby. I'm worried about when Evie has to go up, I'll have to get her use to not sleeping in a cot before then as they use little stretcher type beds in the over 2's room, I wouldn't have a hope in hell getting her to like that atm.

    Alittle - hope the pulse thing isn't of any concern and that you get good news on your eggies

    Amum - it's not often I don't have alot to do when E is at daycare, if I have time I go and see a movie or do some shopping for myself for a change , haven't done that for awhile. I didn't get enough time to finish everything I needed to today, sometimes the time E is at daycare just flies in a nanno second!

    kel; i know i hate when H cries when i leave him there ( or also when he just runs off to play wwithout giving me a second thought...so we cant win )...ruby will be fine soon..my friend had the same problem recently, he got moved and was reallly upset and she was freaked out but after a week or so he was fine. i havent heard of a kid yet who makes a completely smooth transition so i think she is totally normal.

    amum: mmm time for the dayspa if your getting bored LOL....how many days does kade go now?

    alittle: good luck!!! its time for some wazza wonders on here. really hope you get your sticky bfp this time.

    had dh's parents up finishing up the bar area downstairs yesterday and they stayed the night, its always nice having extra help....i must say i had my mum up last week and mmmm i think that will be the last full week i can cop and will just cope on my own during arvo shifts..she just whinged the whole time about everything....argghhh ... besides that just using my mother's day gift voucher...but why oh why do ppl want to tint my eyebrows dark when they are naturally light....i look like the bride of friggin frankenstein with dark eyebrows .

    After your tips wise ones ...
    is there a way to get rid of or prevent baby pimples? Little Indy has started to get spotty!
    also we are starting to think he is suffering from some reflux ...
    he struggles with wind and poop pains ... Any miracle remedies?

    Fiona. From my experience the pimples are usually just a stage. They get then for a week or two then they clear up. Reflux I'm a bit of an expert on but I would need more info. Is he uncomfortable sleeping laying down?smell acidic? Throwing up? Unsettled? Back swallowing?

    Fiona I've also had 2 kids with reflux but I'm not as current as Kel. One thing my CHN suggested to me as a big cause of wind and pain is lactose intolerance (which a lot of babies have but usually grow out of). Do you drink much milk or have other dairy? If you do try really limiting it or removing it from your diet altogether for at least 2 weeks and see if that helps. Also acidic foods can contribute to reflux so you can limit those foods.

    There's a lot of non-medical things you can do to help with wind pain. Brauer's colic relief was very helpful, and infant gaviscon can also provide relief.

    Good luck, Scarlett had silent reflux which was excruciating for her (and us as she sleep was non-existent for her for most of the first year of her life) and Marc had classic reflux which was a bit easier to manage but the poor kid vomitted everything up for the first 7 months of his life. Everything I owned stank.

    Kel neither Lucy nor Scarlett ever embraced childcare or preschool. Scarlett doesn't cry when I leave her these days but if I'm even 5 minutes late picking her up she gets really upset. She doesn't stay much past 230 but if I'm there any later she just falls apart. It breaks my heart.

    Fiona - the pimples will go a way it's just a thing they sometimes go thru, I was told it means your milk is good, but that could be an oldwives tale. As for the reflux, E had a bit of silent reflux, the paed suggested expressing a little milk off first before feeds to make sure she doesn't get too much foremilk as she would poo virtually straight away when I fed her but this isn't always convenient when baby is screaming. The poo is meant to be loose yellowy/mustard colour with bf babies, if it goes a greeny colour they have had an upset tummy. Paed also suggested mylanta (1ml) but I had difficulty giving this to E she couldn't stand it, ended up using infant gaviscon. I was told a number of things to try, ie look at your diet, keep baby upright after a feed for 15 mins or so, but info I received was always contradicting. Thankfully E didn't suffer with it badly. It got worse when I put her on formula but found it depended on which formula I used, I tried a number of them before finding one that she seemed to be more settled on and it was easier to put the gaviscon in the milk. The reflux went away after i introduced solids.

    fiona: H had the pimples for about a month....someone told me its often worse in boys than girls. i thought Evangeline might have had mild reflux but now i think its was just wind and she grew out of it...the paed told me (when i asked) that at that tiny age their tummies are so small that they often get windy and pain after a feed..E would sorta writhe around sometimes when feeding, not cry or scream tho so i knew it wasnt that bad, but seemed unsettlled..she doesnt anymore. and her poo's went greenish for a few weeks around that time as well so she had some sort of windy / colic thing happening i guess in restropect.

    alittle: how did the fert go?

    spot: i still think about you and your beautiful angel bubs, hope u are going ok.

    Quick update from the iphone whilst waiting for my loadof washing to finish at caravan park. Lol. Good news so far... 3 embies alive and kocking at day 2. 2x Grade 3 (avaerage) and one grade 4 (better than average). find out in the next hour what time transfer will be tomorrow. All three will be going back and then we fly home Friday.... and then hopefully a little bit of rest. Heart is fine, just an irregular beat in lower chamber; maybe drug related or stress related but nothing to worry about. Phew! Have a great day everyone.

    Alittle - great news! Sounds promising.

    Had maternal health check today. Indy has put on weight with breastfeeding alone, no top ups, so that is good news. We can continue just doing boobs!

    As for Reflux ... Well it might not be ... But he Does have a lot of symptoms. spitting up after feeds and in bed. Lots of hiccups & sneezing. Sounds congested when feeding. Makes a squeaky noise when feeding. Sometimes is hard to settle, tummy pains poor little bugger.
    Hes not too bad but it's awful seeing him struggling with it.

    sonja - not a lot of lactose in my diet, only in cheese ... I drink lactose free milk, but I'll try cutting out the cheese perhaps. The nurse suggested trying Infacol?

    Jfb ... Yeah I wondered if perhaps its just wind and quite normal but he does really shrill shrieks sometimes in pain ....

    I guess I'm not sure and just looking for tips to make it easier for him. Seeing doc next week so he can check things out.

    Thanks for the advice ... It's always helpful or reassuring.
