    I have a sensor mat but haven't used a fan yet. I think I'd just put the fan as far away from the cot as I could.

    J, it doesn't sound like your family are very supportive of breastfeeding. I love breastfeeding. I was originally thinking I'd only BF til she was 6 months, but now I think even once I o back to work, I'll continue with BF morning and night.

    J, your family sound very rude about the breast feeding!!! I would be furious. I have been very lucky, feeding has come quite easily for us as Toby has a wonderful latch so even though I was worried about my breast size, we've both figured it out. I even managed to feed him lying down this morning.

    My milk is well and truly in and yes, he's settled into a pattern (for now!) which seems to be feed, play (look around a lot!) and then have a quick feed to sleep. This is during the day. At night he tends to feed and fall asleep quite quickly. He's a bit of a snacker so it's a bit hard to time his feeds but he's having plenty of wet and pooey nappies so I figure he's getting what he needs.

    His umbilical cord stump is hopefully about to fall off. It stinks!!! It's not red or oozing pus or anything, but it is pretty stinky... I guess because it's dead tissue! How long did it take for everyone's bubs to lose theirs?

    Dp went to work today (a one off shift, she still has 6 weeks at home) so it's just me and Toby. So far so good I'm absolutely loving this mummy business!!!

    J - my jaw just hit the ground - it's selfish to breastfeeding???? Are you kidding me? It's the best for bub! And 'put your tit away?' Ugh, just want to send you hugs! Your family would hate the. Baby wearing mothers group I went to this morning, 'tits' everywhere!!

    Rainbow...Lucy's took about 2 weeks to fall off. Try some Betadine drops on a cotton bud and dab it on after his bath. Keeps it clean and kills the smell.

    Thanks everyone for kind words re: BF. Reassurance is good.

    Rainbow, I think Sienna's took around 2 weeks to fall off. That's great that you're doing ok with DP at work. Fantastic that she can be home for 6 weeks. Toby is gorgeous!!

    Nila- definitely don't worry about the twins development. As others have said, they are all different and all end up doing the same stuff before long anyway! Some are more relaxed than others and happy to do things a bit later. My nephew isn't walking properly yet and he's nearly 17 months old, but still in normal limits.

    Waiting- can't believe the CHN was such a cow! I've found some of them very out dated and old fashioned in their views though. If Caleb was happily asleep in the hug a bub then obviously he was not uncomfortable. And his weight gain sounds fine. Some of these 'experts' really need their heads checking.

    J- That's so rude of your family, the people meant to support you, to say that about BF. It's such a natural and healthy thing to do for both bub and mum, and is in no way selfish. Lucy obviously loves it. Just tell them to stick it! Grrr

    FTM- love the dresses you made. Very clever!

    Will need to post this then read back and post again as can't remember everything that's been said now I've got going! Ha ha.

    Ah yes, remembered where I got up to now! Lol

    Rainbow- so glad BF is going well for you so far. And its brilliant dp will be around for so long to help. Makes such a difference. And Toby is gorgeous! But of course all babies called Toby are.

    Hi to everyone else, Toni, maybee and Smurfy!

    Afm- had a follow up gynae/physio appointment today re. my 3c tear during birth. Still some issues like urgency to pee and leakage to follow up so have to go again in 4 weeks. They may do a rectal ultrasound (nice!) to check the scar inside. If I had another bub they would definitely want to do that before I go ahead with another vaginal birth but said only 10% chance of it happening again. And i would still rather have that than another c section anyway! Had a registrar and two physios staring at and feeling my bits. Expected all that to be over after the birth!

    Also felt better today without taking the maxolon. So think the panicky, tired, depressed feeling is caused by it. Will ring my gastro doc tomorrow and tell him.

    Are you thinking about a 3rd baby Bond? I would love a 3rd, but hubby has said no...repeatedly.

    I never really did my post-natal pelvic floor exercises, and I really should start. Sneezing is always dangerous!!

    Yeah I always wanted 3 children. I love being pregnant but Meadow's birth was fairly traumatic so changed my mind for a while. Now considering it again though. Can't imagine not doing it again, as hard as birth and a newborn is! I want a non instrumental/non surgical delivery next time! Gotta happen sooner or later right?!

    Must be really hard if you want more babies but DH doesn't. He's really firm about it is he?

    How about everyone else, more babies eventually?
