    Nic not so much nipple confusion but the different shapes you can buy in dummies can change the way they suck, which can cause damage. Something I wanted to avoid since I've had so much trouble to get breastfeeding right. Happy Baby dummies are the old style bell shape dummy so shouldn't cause too much of a problem.

    Ivy has lovely little lips

    Yep I bought the old style dummy, I also have the newer Cooler looking ones, she seems to hate them all the same but she has sucked both several times as sometimes when she us really upset we force them in to calm her, after a while she sucks, mean parents

    Do bub take your pinky? Ivy loves to suck my pinky! But it's not as convenient as a dummy, obviously!!

    I hope the dummy doesn't cause any issues as it would be an absolute shame after the hard work u have put in!!

    Sorry double post.

    Ivy slept 12 - 4 which was 5.5 hours between feeds...not bad. Prob would have gone longer but she had escaped her wrap!

    I had a bath with Ivy tonight was a wonderful experience, she was Sooo calm and we stayed in for 25 mins just laying and chatting! Loved the skin to skin

    Nicsta how nice that you had a nice bath with ivy...

    Re dummy talk we tried the closer to nature orthodontic dummy at the hospital and Orlando wouldn't take it. We tried the avent classic shape at about 2-3 weeks old and he takes it but you have to hold in there for a little bit and sometimes I need to make sure he doesn't spit it out and just stand there. He has a super strong sucking reflex and my nipples would die otherwise! When i get a chance i will try the cherry shaped ones to see if he prefers them and keeps It in easier on his own. We've also given him EBM in a bottle - closer to nature bottles - since he was 3 weeks. He's only had a handful of feeds from a bottle but he loves it and takes it no problem. He's also been a pro at breastfeeding since birth and hasn't had nipple confusion.

    Had MCHN yesterday...our baby has grown 2 cms in the last two weeks (not much considering the weeks prior he put on 3 in one week) and his weight gain is still heaps and still consistent - around 360g pw - he put on 715g in the 2 wks so he's now 5.3kg! Was advised to have his immunisations at the dr this time round as he has bronchilitis so will go get them done on the weekend - he will be 7 weeks.

    Had a really restless night not last night, night before followed by a restless day yesterday! He hardly slept all day - had a nap from 2.45-3.45 and then was pretty much up until 12.20 the poor thing could not get to sleep...we both tried and he would be on the edge of sleep - or even fast asleep but the second we put him down he would cry and wake up! It broke my heart and I had a bit of a cry last night as I hate seeing my baby sick!

    Losec in tablet form not working out! Have tried dissolving in water and giving through a syringe and through EBM to no avail! I sourced the liquid form so DH will be able to pick that up tomorrow until then I'll give Orlando Zantac. Have been giving him panadol which seems to settle him a little.

    Haven't given him anything for his colic yet...we have infacol which we haven't used yet as we wanted to spk to paediatrician first. Although thinking of gripe water to give him instead but not sure what is better? Can any ladies tell me their experiences with infacol and gripe water?

    Now for the AWESOME news..Orlando slept...wait for it lol...for 4 hours 15 mins!!!! Longest sleep since birth!!! He went down at 12.20 and I woke up to his stirring at 4.35am!! I know it's only happened once but it's still a win...at least I know that it is physically capable for him to sleep longer and boy did I need that sleep too!!

    Sorry for the essay hasn't written in a while...

    Here's a couple of quick pics of my little soldier...

    I have used both infacol and gripe water and I found infacol great for the wind :-) I only used it for a wk as for gripe water we used a herbal one called infant friendly was ok but not as good good luck

    I have used infants friend...not sure if it really worked but ivy likes the taste Orlando looks like he holds his neck up well!!! I need to give ivy more tummy time...she gets a lot on my chest but needs more on her mat.

    How much does everyone else give their baby? DH says not to do it after feeding as she would be full?

    1st lot of shots down. Doesn't get any easier but didn't cry this time. It's heart breaking that look in their face

    Nurse said it was ok to bf straight after so I proceeded to get my boob out to be ready. She was all embarrassed to have to say I would have to so it outside in the waiting room cause she had someone else to see. Oh well just someone else to see my boob lol. Really think its better to feed as they are doing it though.

    I usually feed as that's what he wants first when he wakes up! I'll feed until he's had enough then burp him / sit him up for a bit then he lies down on his play gym for about ten mins then I put him on his tummy - I have this Lamaze musical inchworm that I put under his arms so he doesn't smash his face on the floor even though I'm right next to him! He's on his front until he cracks it sometimes for 30 seconds to 1 minute sometimes 5-10 minutes just depends on his mood really! Your DH is right though sometimes he does spew a little but just a tiny bit doesn't worry me. We try and do this playtime routine 2-3 times a day...usually ends in a nappy change another feed and then bed
