    HI ladies,

    finally have time and internet so I can join

    our little princess Aurora was born on the 11/12/13 at 9.20pm after a quick 4.5 hour labour all natural with no drugs and no tears / stitches.

    She is feeding so well and everything is going so well!

    Maybee, I am having that exact problem with Lucy at the moment, and she is just over 6 months. I cannot do anything unless she is asleep. She is very happy to sit propped up next to me and chew her toys, but if I walk away for a minute, she cries real tears.
    I don't remember having this problem with Oscar...he would lie under his play gym and be quite content. Lucy will do this for 5 minutes and then cry.
    If I put her on my bed while I go to the toilet, she cries.
    I have to have a shower while she is asleep, or put her in bed and let her cry (which I hate doing...but if I have to be somewhere in the morning at a certain time, I have no choice).
    Not sure if it is a normal developmental thing, as it has only really been in the recent month or so...but she is awake more of the day now.

    Lucy sleeps from 11.30am-2pm, then about 45-60 mins at about 4.30pm. Then I try to get her down at 8pm. She still needs resettling overnight anywhere from 4-8 times a night, but I only get her up for a feed at about 5am, and then she will usually make it to 7am. What is Ava doing?

    What are Sienna and Meadow doing sleep-wise? And Tate if Sage is around?

    Bond...I often have Oscar visit me on the loo. "What you doing Mummy?"...!

    Rainbow...how are you?

    Oh the joys Bond! Ha ha. Nice having an audience to do your business.

    Welcome MCB. Aurora is cute. Pleased all is going well.

    Same J the only time she's content is for about 15 mins in morning playing on mat by herself while I scoff my breakfast - she can see me. If I have a shower with her awake I park her rocker in the bathroom doorway and have a quick shower. I do the same when I want to cook or hang washing out! She's been like it for about 6 weeks or so.

    I think someone asked the other day about Ava rolling - she only goes from tummy to back. Hasn't done the opposite way yet.

    Re sleep. Ava generally has a sleep from 9:20-11 (she might wake earlier) and then again at 1:20-3. She then goes to bed at 7pm. Feeds at 10:30 and wakes anywhere from 6-7am. Generally her sleeps are rubbish if we're out and about. Some days I'd like her to have a nap around 4:30 so we go for a walk or jump in car but she won't always nap.

    What fun, having an audience while going to the toilet. Something to look forward to.

    Welcome MCB. Aurora is very cute.

    Sienna will have a sleep from around 9:30am-10:00am, then 12:00-3:00pm, then 5:30pm-6:00pm, she goes to bed a 9:30pm and sleeps til 6:30am. Sometimes she ditches the 3 hour day sleep and replaces it with a couple of 45 min naps. I hate it when she does that. Some nights she wakes at 3:00am for a quick feed, but goes straight back to sleep with minimal effort from me.

    Welcome Michelle! Aurora is beautiful. What are your plans for Christmas? You're not cooking I hope!!!

    J- Meadow's average day starts at 7am. She then naps at around 8:30-9am just for 30 mins and again at 10:30-11am for 30 mins. Her big sleep comes after lunch at about 1pm until 4pm. But she'll need resettling during that to keep her asleep. Then she'll go to bed around 7pm. These times always vary a bit of course and if she has her big nap earlier she'll need another catnap at 5-5:30 to see her through to bedtime. But I prefer when she doesn't need to do this. She usually wakes quite soon after I put her down to bed at night after one sleep cycle and needs resettling. She will wake again before I go to bed (at around 10pm) and then wake every 1-2 hrs after that throughout the night until 7am. Hard going! A quick breastfeed and she goes back to sleep.

    So during the day I think her routine for sleep is not too bad and she's fallen into a pattern. But night is just a disaster and she didn't do more than 2 hrs last night after 5 hrs the night before!!! Definitely a one off. And I have no idea why as nothing was different at all. Apart from noticing her teeth had cut through yesterday. But she doesn't wake crying in pain anyway she just wakes up wanting a comfort feed!

    Today has been the worst day ever. DH has been working long hours due to the high fire risk (he's a fire management officer) and i've had days of the kids on my own until late. Today we were just tired and cranky with each other before he went to work and kept snapping at one another. So the day started bad and just got worse with Toby's behaviour (probably as a result of us! Bad parent alert). I feel like I've done nothing but reprimand him all day. I feel horrible. And tomorrow DH is working 10-8 and I have to entertain the kids all day on my own. At least he's off over Christmas though I shall have gone mad by then! Its 36 here tomorrow so trying to keep cool is an issue too. I am planning to take Toby out for dinner to an air conditioned club with a play area.

    Smurfy- sounds like Sienna is doing really well with her sleep! Wish Meadow would sleep like that!!!!

    Maybee- that sounds so hard with the clingyness. Hope it'll pass in time. Have you tried using a sling to carry her around with you? That goes for J too! I can put Meadow down for short periods but after 5-10 mins she'll want picking up and carrying around. I am used to doing most things one handed now!!! Including taking Toby to the toilet now he's toilet trained. Ava's night sleep sounds pretty good too! And I think it was me who asked about rolling. Meadow was just doing one way too (back to tummy) but just today has started doing tummy to back too so she's rolling all over the bed! Maybe that's why she's been so hard to get to bed tonight. Took absolutely ages to settle her and she kept waking then looking like she was trying to roll over. After the day i've had I nearly lost it.

    Sorry for my rant don't mean to just talk about myself but its just been one the toughest days yet!! If my mum was here I would have called in reinforcements. She arrives on 24 February for 7 weeks.

    Bond, that sounds like a tough day. I hope Toby enjoys himself tomorrow, and the day goes better for you. Yay for Meadow rolling both ways, clever girl. It is frustrating when you're wanting them to sleep, and they want to practice what they have learnt.

    As for Nila,she is in my DIG. Tyler's surgery went really well. She's put some photos on Facebook, and he seems happy.

    Hey all! Hope you're all looking fwd to Christmas! I can't believe I got my baby before Christmas

    We are good. It's been hot here so Toby has been feeding a lot and my nips are sore!

    He's been pretty good. Night times seem to be a feed at 10ish, 1:30, 4 and then after 6 some time, which is good. The other night he skipped the 1:30 feed and went til 3.

    I've expressed and frozen some milk. Is like dp to give him a bottle if he'll take it, just every so often, but I'm not sure how to go about it! Any tips?

    Good to hear Tyler is doing well, say hi to Nila for us Smurfy!

    Welcome MCB

    Hi everyone else!

    I cant believe how close Christmas is. I've never been this excited for Christmas.

    Rainbow, that would be good if DP an give him a bottle and help with the feeds, especially a night feed. I'd just try him with It and see how he goes. You may have to try a few different bottles to see if that makes a difference
