The bottle is a continues flow and she seemed very satisfied. Will try it again today to see if this theory is correct. If so might try to bottle feed her in the morning and at night. The only thing about pumping is to replace a breast feed with a bottle feed rather than doing both.
    Rachael I've been toying with trying an expressed feed, so glad to know it's worked for you, thanks! Our boy falls asleep on the boob too, then wakes after about 2 mins totally refreshed and continues feeding like he never stopped. am currently typing right-handed while he's hanging onto my left gal and having a nap!

    Know exactly what you mean that's why expressing for the late night feed is great, she feeds a lot quicker as she doesn't fall asleep with the bottle. Spoke to the Australian Breastfeeding Association , they said to add to the bottle after a feed using the breast you didn't feed from. Keep the closed bottle in the fridge. When adding use a different bottle, chill it first before adding to the milk already in the fridge.

At night she sleeps after a certain hour as she gets bad wind at night, and I don't wake her for a feed until the morning. My breasts are so full but she needs to sleep.

    Not sure what the solution is for the day as I can't do anything other than mend to her all day. Don't think this is right?

    Loveandlive big congrats, so happy you're on this side and you have your little bub.

    Rachael do you have a baby carrier, like a Baby Bjorn or the like? Maybe carry her around for a while and see if that helps so she can get some sleep. Have you tried some infants friend? We are getting much better results with Infants Friend...still not perfect but he is settling better. Also try putting a towel under her bassinet mattress, or try lifting her up somehow so she is a bit elevated. Its REALLY hard isn't it! You know they need their sleep but when they fight it, it doesn't help them either.

    twocam they are great ideas! I was wondering if maybe he was too cold, because we were sleeping with the aircon on in our room plus the fan (we get really hot...dreading the elec bill this quarter lol) and its the only thing I could put it down to because he would usually be ok downstairs, but when we went to bed it was awful! But I thought if I rugged him up too much he would get too warm, because the aircon is on timer so we only leave it on for a couple of hours....I had him in a short sleeved onesie, a woombie wrap, plus a sheet and/or a thin blanket so I thought he must be warm enough, but maybe he wasn't. We both get really hot to its hard for me to think well i am super hot so he must be too, i am worried about having him too hot.

    Ohh KD clock it ticking now! Woo hoo for mat leave, hope you are getting lots of rest!

    Whoop whoop musicalgal 3 weeks to go! Getting soooo close! I am so excited for the next couple of months, all these beautiful babies will be arriving! We didnt put the sheets on the bassinet until we got home, they were washed and ready, but just not on. We put the sheet on the day we got home from hospital. His cot still has stuff in it lol. We will clean out his room when we are ready to put him in there permanently ;-)


    Cheeky!! Congratulations on the arrival of little Ava! How wonderful! Enjoy this precious time with your little girl xoxoxoxo she is just beautiful

    AFM we are battling on! Hayden is 4 weeks old today - I cant believe it! He is such a gorgeous little thing, I really can't believe that he is here. Sleeping at night is still frustrating, we did have one good night on Wednesday night I think it was. I am going to try cutting out chocolate (!) and only having limited soft drink (not that i drink that much - maybe a couple of cans a day) and see if that helps - just doing some trial and error! I have been smashing through chocolate of late which isn't like me, I love the stuff, but I don't eat a lot of it, until now hahahahahaha! We are getting a lot more wind out, but he is still a very unsettled little dude. Hubby goes back to work next Tuesday so losing my sleep in is going to hurt a lot lol

    I hear ya hoots. It's like this past 2 wks have hit with a vengeance. Swollen feet and hands (whether or not they're up and rested or exercised), sore thumping hips at night, aching back and Bub grinding low in my pelvis. To add insult to injury I have somehow pulled a rib. Bub has been in the same position for weeks, so I must've twisted or laid on one side for too long while I was trying to relax! Now it hurts to even take a shallow breath!

    Oh the joys of pregnancy eh. I bet those new mums out there are thinking to themselves. .. ha ha you have no idea of what's yet to come my dear! Lol

    It does get uncomfortable doesn't it? I really don't miss my incredibly swollen feet and legs (my ankles are still a bit swollen, but nothing like they were). Hang in there ladies, the end is in sight

    Feeling like a bad mum, asked the nursery to take Ava so I could get some sleep. :-(

    Don't feel bad we did the same thing. The first night I held off until 4:30am for 1.5 hrs as I didn't want to give her to them (like u) but I was buggered, she was comfort feeding most of the night. The 2nd night I gave her to them so we all can get some sleep. Take advantage of it because you won't have that when u get home. You don't need to be supermum straight away
