    At the moment I feel happy with one, but I think ill need a year to make that decision final

    Ivy has just today started to cry more, so hard to hear her scream!! Normally it's cauSe she doesn't want her nappy changed

    She just did a wee on the carpet...my mistake should have changed her on her table!!

    I have been reading Along though and can totally sympathize and relate to everyone's sleep and breast feeding problems. I never knew breast feeding would be so hard and time consuming!! Zoe has just decided she no longer feels like drinking straight from the boob so I have been expressing rather than switching to formula just yet but that is so not convenient during the night!!

    There really are so many things I have found that no one mentioned to me! The thing I have learnt though is to really just go with what works for you and bubs, happy mum, happy baby.

    I have to say there have been times when I have felt so guilty when I've gotten frustrated about things as we tried fr so long to have this miracle so feel in a way im not entitled to complains bout thing but god some days are hard!!!

    Im so glad we have each other to turn to as I think now the babies are here is when we have really needed the support and advice.

    I must say too everyone has had such gorgeous little ones, we should all be proud!

    Any tips ladies in nappy rash? I feel I've tried all te usual remedies but am just not getting anywhere??
    Crafty we use Gaia products .... Gaia bamboo wipes we make sure everything is completely clean (probably use too many) and when he's more red we use Gaia skin soothing lotion (which contains zinc and castor oil) and every change we either that or the Gaia corn starch powder (talc free) ... All products are organic / natural and we've found them to be great so far as we change Orlando A LOT. They are more expensive products but find chemist warehouse stock the cheapest and we buy in bulk when they have sales. We have the whole bath range too incl massage oil moisturiser shampoo sleep time bath etc etc

    For Nappy rash I've used Lucas' Paw Paw treatment for soothing the rash. I bought it from Target. I've also used Bepanthen and I've found it works well when applied thick.
    I use Lucas paw paw for myself all the time on my lips and if I have dry skin or a cut or something...love it!

    Bepanthen and sudocrem supposed to be great - I have both in standby in case the Gaia stuff isn't enough

    She also has flat head! So I need to stop her sleeping on her preferred side. I also need to get her hips checked as one was stiff.

    I'm reluctantly thinking of moving Ella to the nursery, the noises that she can make are very loud and I find them distressing. She sounds like she has nightmares constantly and I cannot sleep. Not to mention the grunting and farting, how can a petite pretty little baby sound like such a man!

    I'm not sure moving her is the answer as I will still hear her through the baby monitor unless I turn it off. I don't wont her to get to the crying stage before I hear her though.
    It's a tough call isn't it babies are super noisy when they sleep!!

    HI Crafty, My little boy had terrible nappy rash. I tried heaps of creams. The one that worked best for us was sudocrem.

    So how do all you ladies get bub to sleep...as in right now I'm feeding ivy...50% of the time she will fall asleep on boob... Other 50% I end up holding/ rocking her. She is almost 3 weeks old am I doing the right thing? I always swaddle her,..at night I try not to un swaddle when feeding.

    Also how long does it take you all to feed? I'm average 30 mins, sometimes 15, sometimes 45 is that still normal for this age?

    I use nappy mate - only from some chemists - for nappy rash.
    I also changed DH into cloth nappies when he was 4 months as he got it soooo bad! It cleared up in 2 days!

    Nic - sounds exactly like us!
    I always try and keep a 'routine' with every feed/sleep
    it doesn't work all the time, but things like swaddling the same way and popping them into bed is a routine. I just try and keep it all similar.

    Nic i learnt from my SIL not to get into a habit of rocking to sleep etc every time. SIL learnt the hard way and ended up at sleep school.

    The idea is to put them in their cot awake or drowsy so they learn to resettle themselves. Otherwise they don't know how to fall asleep without you rocking them etc.

    Once I have fed Ella I wrap her and pop her into her bassinet, if she is wide awake sometimes I rhythmically tap/pat her until she is drowsy. Ella is quite easy to settle so I haven't any idea if this would work with any other bubs. I'm not even sure it's the right thing to do, but it's working for me.

    I've been told re. feeding at night to leave the lights low, don't make eye contact or talk in a playful manner to keep them sleepy. Trick is to teach them night is for sleeping not playing.

    It usually takes me roughly 10-20mins a side to breast feed. Have been told it depends on the baby, they can get enough sometimes in five mins. Not so sure about that. It's so annoying when they fall asleep and they haven't finished!
