    Mrs Simmo, my work is paying mine and it was backdated to when Centrelink approved it, so I got a lump sum to catch up and am now on fortnightly payments 😀

I am sure, like her sister DD2 will go into her own room and bed when she is ready. But in the mean time we are all getting MUCH more sleep together.

    It's helpful to remember bubs have been in our bodies for so long - suddenly being out in the world and alone takes a lot of getting used to. Imagine if your DP left tonight and you weren't sure if and when they were coming back - I wouldn't sleep either! 💏

    Nicsta - I wish I found bub hub and had this resource when I had my first!
    I agree with co sleeping, I can't imagine how people get any sleep without it and not have crying or spending ages settling. Infants are way too immature in their brains to self settle. Jaan sleeps with us and we sleep all night I think I've had 3 days since he was born of fatigue and it was horrendous. During the day he sleeps in a sling and I get on with whatever I need to (just moved house and packed and unpacked the lot while carrying him). I think the western world is tough with nuclear families, in other cultures the baby never has a cot but then there are loads of people to share the load. Girls who are struggling with sleep, if you can at all consider cosleeping, check out how to do it safely. The SIDS website has ideas also read dr paul Newman, he has done studies on bed sharing that decreases the risk of SIDS. You have to be an attachment kind of parent but believe me you will get sleep once you learn to breastfeed on your side and it is the most beautiful feeling. We also have a soft red light in the corner of the room so I can always see bub. It is not recommended for formula fed babies btw. I swore I'd never cosleep but now I can't imagine anything else.
    For those wanting a cheap sling, if you like the hug a bub design get 6 meters of fabric about 40cm wide, google how to tie it on you tube. I have 3 that cost me $2 each and they are more comfy than hub a bub that are $120.
    There is a great book worth reading- the science of parenting by Margot Sutherland - it is evidence based and explains about the development of the baby brain and what happens when a baby is left to cry, self settle etc. I would highly recommend it for every parent to understand their child's psychological development. Investment for the future!

    Please excuse my ignorance but with co sleeping, do you literally mean you both sleep in the same bed? If so aren't you afraid of suffocating the baby? It sounds lovely to get some sleep but I'd be too afraid of smothering the baby. Is there a way to stop that from happening?

    5 weeks from C/S and the ***** is back, I remember someone asking last week

    Personally for me I am not willing to take the risk of co sleeping after trying so hard to have this little munchkin in the first place. I know it can be done safely and has advantages but would never forgive myself if something happened. Each to their own though and you do have to go with what works for you individually.

    Can I ask if anyone has bbeen brave enough to jump back in the sack with their DH's as yet?? Super impressed if you have as I don't know how you have the energy lol and to be honest I'm a bit scared!!

    I understand concerns with cosleeping as I had the same until I researched it and follow SIDS guidelines. There are actually protective elements of cosleeping with your baby providing you aren't obese, smoker, fatigued, on medication, and breastfeeding. The bed needs to be firm. In china 99% of parents bed share and there isn't even a word for SIDS. Same with Japan. The mother creates a c shape around the baby, the breathing of the mother regulates the breathing of the infant making SIDS less likely than having them in a cot especially in a different room. Bed sharing is different to cosleeping which is technically the baby being on their own surface. I'll see if I can find a link..my friend who is a pediatrician bed shares. In many countries the use of cots are seen as
    bizarre and foreign, SIDS rates are not high in those countries.

    Depends, mine was a lump sum (identified by Centrelink) minus the marginal tax rate...

    Your employer would tax it as they normally would your pay. 😀
