    Hope you feel better soon nicsta...I got 2 hours 15 mins sleep until 12.45 and only just put bubs down again now (2.40am) praying for another 2 at least, neither of us have slept much over the last 24hrs so need to play catch up!

    Sweet dreams!

    Definitely the hardest part of every night...he awoke at 3am (after sleeping for 20 mins) and is still awake!! The last couple of nights has been awake from 3-6 roughly! Very tough! This too shall pass....this too shall pass....this too shall pass....my mantra!

    You might already be doing this but... Don't pick them up too early girls, alot of the time the noises are them resettling themselves... Wait till they are pretty much crying, you'll get to know over time the difference between them resettling & waking earlier but for now wait for the cry XX

    Yes I sometimes think I pick her up too quick, but just then I waited until she screamed as it had only been 2 hours again and I just think surely you dont need this much!!

    Thanks Amy I was just reading that yesterday about how not to pick them up until they are steadily crying...which we have been doing anyway they're mega noisy though when they sleep aren't they?! Had probably the toughest night or what felt like it since we've been home...it's now quarter to nine and he has had one hour sleep since 3.30am. Already had a bit of a cry earlier! SOOOO tired! My DH said to start expressing so he can feed at night but Orlando is eating so often it makes expressing hard at the moment

    I've bathed vee twice a day morning and night, ever since she was born. Sometimes 3 times a day being a midnight wash in the early weeks just to settle her for a few hours. My midwife recommended it and it worked forme. The bathing in the morning and night makes for a good routine and she is always refreshed therefore happy. As for the going out at 2 weeks I think it's healthy for you and baby to get out so that the baby gets used to being out of their environment so that later on the will be accustomed to going in the car, being surrounded by unfamiliar faces, different noises, etc
    Babys go through massive growth spurts in the first 3 weeks of their lives just bare with it and it will get better.
    I found that letting my baby get to crying stage at night would make her hard to settle and stay awake longer.....can you tell the difference between your babys hunger signs and babys unsettled signs?as soon as I see hunger signs I feed her and she will go back to sleep even if it meant getting up for 10 min to pop her on the boob. At least I was only awake for 10 min instead of an hour or two because she was screaming and upset and wide awake because I was talking to her to settle her.

    Honestly why don't these bubba's come with a manual!!!
    He is very restless and gets to the point of screaming if I don't give him a feed and put him down. Guess he is just making his own routine. We have had 2 bad nights in a row, with him waking every 1-2 hours from 11pm. Dh is going back to work tonight and will be away for about 7 weeks so I'm really hoping this night time nightmare is over soon. We shower Will every night and he loves it.

    We had no 00000 and went via the shops on the way home from the hospital. I think it's ok as long as its not to crowded and people are touching or coughing over them. We had a Muslin over the capsule too just to stop wandering germs.

    Last night was awful!
    She was up from 8pm to 11.30
    Then up screaming at 2 then again at 5
    I'm shattered!
    Dh is still not in my room, so it's getting really hard esp when ds doesn't take his day sleep.
    Ds was up at 6am
    It's gonna be a long day!!!
