    I'm struggling with managing DS2 and 3 year old DS1 who's feeling a bit neglected. DS2 hates the ergo too.

    I know such young babies go through this, but I guess I'm paranoid because DS1 was such a sh1te sleeper! Not sure there's much point to this post really.
    You poor thing... I know the textbooks say that if you pat/rock/dummy babies to sleep they are more likely to Catnap. - not saying this applies to you.

    It's a struggle going to 2 kids... I've got a 2.5 year old and a 4.5 month old. Very tough and one thing I will say is god bless TV!

    I still haven't got the 123 magic book but I count to 3. He stops... But then starts up again...

    I get to 2 and he's calmed down, then I go ok good and then 5 seconds later he's acting up again, so I count again, get to 2 and he stops, then starts again. It goes on and on until I lose my ****.

    And I've tried time out. He will happily sit there...

    So we are being discharged!!! Unfortunately we have seen every paed in this town! He is feeding a tiny bit better and for his weight they've fortified his feeds further. Just waiting to see the psych before I go.... maybe its because I yelled them..... will see the paed in clinic on 14th. We would take him to the royal children's if we need to.


    Me + DP 01.03.2010 = DD 22.02.2011 + DS 20.01.2014 = <3

    How frustrating for you! You're in Mount Gambier aren't you? Can you get to Adelaide at all?

    I went to a great paed who finally diagnosed DD with silent reflux. From memory as I didn't have private health at the time, I got it all back from Medicare.

    Thanks @Wiseenough and @VicPark! He's been shocking with his sleeps but he's lucky he's cute I'm still putting him down sleepy rather than asleep and 1 out of 10 times he self-settles like he was. Most of the time though I'm just ending up carrying him as I need to get stuff done.

    Glad to hear he's feeding better. How old is he again? You might already be using something similar, but with DS1 I had to add Polyjoule to his feeds for extra calories.

    Not sure if it is of any reassurance at all, but he's now 3 - he eats like a horse and enjoys a range of foods from curries to (mild) chilli mussels! It's a hard road but you'll get there. I found it a lot easier to work on the feeding aversion once he was on solids. Depending on how old he is, there are some sensory activities you could be doing now to work on things. Happy to send you some stuff if it will help.
