    Re Sleep. I just follow bubs cues in the early days, feed on demand and let him sleep when he wants. I do keep the lights dim and very quiet when he wakes overnight for feeds so he learns day-night. During the day he mostly sleeps in the lounge in his bassinet, its bright and noisy with a toddler playing the recorder next to his head But he sleeps with noise!
    Honestly with my two I found that I couldnt have had a routine in the beginning. a routine started happening naturally around 8weeks for my daughter.

    In hospital you will find that everything is upside down with the ob and pead checks in the morning, baby and your monitoring day and night (thats annoying), middies coming in to help you BF if you need help & visitors. Newbies tend to sleep a majority of time for the first few days (bar night 2 or 3 when they fed nonstop!!!). They just gave me advice on the maximum amount of time to leave it between BF. For I it was no more than 4hrly as he was just on 3kg born. Otherwise the middies just said fed as bub wants and lots of cuddles and skin-skin. It will be your decision how you want to do it!

    Awww @maxinem2112 they are soooo cute! I just want to squeeze them!! They look alike too! Yay for hitting the 3kg mark. Sounds like all is going well. Do they wake up at the same time to feed? I'm glad ur happy with 4hrs sleep lol x

    Yay for super quick recovery @dancingbutterfly! I'm so happy to hear ur almost back to normal. Aww poor little man, hope the swing helps. Cute that sleeping on u makes him feel better ❤️ thanks for ur experience re sleep. I was told by another mum to only sleep bubs in the same room/bassinet so they know it's sleep time but makes more sense to sleep in diff places so it gets used to noise and sleeping anywhere. Thanks! Just need to buy myself a recorder now to play next to its head lol. Ur dd cracks me up! I don't think I will bother with a routine then first up and see if bubs can work it out on its own. Fingers crossed!!

Have yet to have indigestion or heartburn but not sure if that's still to come. Sleeping well too
    Bags are kind of packed, I will have to go through again and work out what's in there and what's still missing. All I've packed are some clothes for me and bub, I'll need to look at all those lists that others have made and sort it out.

    I get the sore upper back too! Luckily you don't have the heartburn, but seriously I prefer that to the nausea, so I wouldn't swap with you!

    Can't wait to finish! I've got one of the biggest weeks of work on (including running a conference on Saturday). I'm going to collapse in a heap at the end of it.
    I can't start anything, and I'm not included in discussions etc, I'm really looking forward to being done. Going to still catch up with workmates whilst I'm off with luck

    NizzleRizzle I would second dancingbutterfly and say 8-10 weeks you just do as the baby needs and don't even think about routine. We also had an issue with day/night in the early weeks and found the best was to have him sleep where there was light and noise during the day and in a quiet dark room at night. By 10 weeks he naturally found a routine and I tried to always take his cues on what he needed and when the routine needed to be changed such as dropping naps during the day etc. some babies need routine and others don't. I personally would not limit to sleeps in dark quiet rooms all the time or you will find yourself stuck at home a lot more. For your own sanity it is good if they can get used to taking sleeps in the pram, car etc. I tried to keep it to one a day though as I didn't find it was as good sleep and I didn't want him to need the motion to fall asleep either. Honestly, don't stress now, you will find a rhythm with your Bub that suits the both of you and try not to get too caught up in the books and what you "should do".

    Hey girls

    I havent read back yet but will try to catch up on where everyone is at tonight......

    I finished work on friday and was very much looking forward to at least a couple of weeks to get organised and possibly rest up on DD creche days.....my little man has other ideas, cheeky monkey!
    My waters/membranes broke out of the blue yesterday arvo! One minute lm making zucchini slice and thinking about doing dishes before picking up my DD from creche the next lm off to the toilet and see pink all over my panty liner!
    Iphoned the hospy and was told to come in as l was only 35w2d and as l was on the phone to a friend arranging for her to pick up my DD for me l stood up and huge gush of fluid....everywhere! I freaked out, thankfully my friend rushed over and drove me to hospy.
    Iv been monitored as still loosing fluid but the contractions l was having stopped. They were thinking about doing a csection last night but decided to wait overnight and see what happend......nothing happend.
    So lm still in hospy being monitored and on antibiotics in case infection sets in.....plan at this stage is l have to stay in hospital now until he arrives, if labour doesnt start before monday they will do csection then unless something happens and they have to do one earlier!
    My little man wants to be a feb bub...lol!
    Im nervous and pray all will be ok.
    Sorry for the long post!
