    Hey girls,

    Geez I thought I know what a mobile baby is like before now. Nope. DD tries to pull herself everywhere now. I don't mind if she bump herself but some of the furniture can cause some serious damage. I have to watch her a lot more now.
    @Gelati oh no! Not another cold. Our GP doesn't bulk bill but does so for children. I don't know why. I pay $60 before Medicare rebate when I see our GP.

    Tired - working full time is so tiring. Lol. How did we do it in the past?

    Lucky it's a short week with public holiday on Friday. But the next public holiday isn't until cup day. I can't wait for Chrissy break already.

    We just bought some mustela product for her dry skin. Not using anything other than mustela bath oil and moisturising cream now. Moisturise twice a day but more on the face after a meal. Hope to see improvement. If not we are booked in to see the paed in 3 weeks time about her dry skin.

    Speaking of cc - we haven't been accepted in any cc we put her name down for. Eeks! I better call a few more cc tomorrow.

    Ya, same as @Minib, the GPs around here bulk billed children not adults. The good GP DS saw charged $90 before rebate. As i said, money well spent. I ain't going to complain. The paed, who is specialised in respiratory issue, has a LONG wait. DS won't get in until mid dec! Far out........

    Let me know if the lotion works. @Minib. Haha...gaia moisturiser works on my face. LOL. I tried it the other day. Apparently, steroid cream isn't for face. Luckily, i didn't use it on DS cheek. I have chronic dry skin issue. I had eczema on my joints when i was a teenager. Steroid cream helped. No longer has it. No idea why. Hormone related?! Just found out that DS still has craddle cap. It isn't obvious because of the hair.

    Can anyone remember how much your DS drink at 9.5 months old? We are 3 x 180ml a day but in the last 1.5 weeks DD hasn't finished any bottle in one go. She would happily drink 120ml then stop. Don't want to underfed milk but is 360ml a day too little?

    Will do @bbhope. It's only day 3 so can't tell the difference yet. Does your DS have lots of hair?

    @Minib: i really won't worry about the milk intake. It depends how much solid DS is on. DS has been on 3x 180ml for many months now. At home, 1 x first wake up, 1 x an hour or two after lunch (or if he is super hungry at wake time screaming, milk first), 1 x after second nap (more like an afternoon tea). We only give 60ml after dinner because he doesn't drink much water. Of course, we always give him more anytime if he wants more. If his congestion is really bad (like this week), he rarely finishes his bottle. It affects the sucking. They do it slightly differently at daycare but still 3 bottles. The little boy, who is one month younger than DS, at playdate yesterday is drinking 2 bottles a day only.

    Hahah...yes, DS was born with a lot of hair. We tried to cut his hair couple of weeks ago. It was very difficult so only managed to cut it here and there. My mom bought him a shaver which is designed to "cut" baby hair. It can be adjusted to different length. I haven't gotten to try it yet because it is still on the way to me.

    Sigh...DS seems to get fever with very cold now. He started another round of fever when we picked him up from childcare so staying at home with us for the rest of the week. I have to take leave tomorrow. Gosh almost yelled at a senior colleague today. What does working 3 days a week mean?!?? Some people just don't seem to understand even though they claim they do! Got more than one email since last week saying "hoping i could work on X next month". The last few weeks were exception that i worked overtime. I replied back saying i work 3 days a week and have other priorities (backlog) projects at the moment, especially those projects are actually paying the bills. The other one was a voluntary work which i saw it with a possible good outcome.

    OK...enough rant. It hasn't been a good day since this morning. Whats your ladies plan for letting the cleaner into the house? I am not 100% comfortable leaving a spare to the cleaner given that we don't know her enough and the crime rate is pretty bad in our area recently. I don't see that we have any other choice. DH is absolutely against it.

    @Minib - ds was on 3 bottles at 9.5 mths and drank between 500-700ml per day. During growth spurt it could be up to 800ml and when sick could be as low as 450ml. What has MHN said? It's hard not to worry but I'm sure if she was hungry you would know. Recently we have had to reduce milk intake. In the last 2 weeks. So after 210ml I generally stop even if he could drink more because it means he eats less solids. He also has to have 2 full snacks otherwise he wakes up hungry at 5am. So I wouldn't get too worried about it. Some babies reduce milk in take sooner than others. As they grow older milk isn't that important anymore they need solids. Unfortunately ds has become so fussy with food lately. He will only eat well if I let him hold onto something either to play with or to feed himself. But if I want him to feed the whole meal himself he won't do it ends up playing. The only thing he will eat well himself is berries. He loves them!
    Have you had any luck with Childcare? Is your mum looking after dd for 5 days now?

    @bbhope I wouldn't give the cleaner keys unless I had no option. But after I have used them for awhile I might? But I have issues giving strangers my keys. So probably would just be home to let them in and then let them lock up before they leave if I can't get home
    In time. They can just close the door and that will lock it.
    Oh tell me about it I find the last few times ds has gotten sick he has had really high fever. This week it went up to 39!! Luckily after Panadol the fever broke and he was fine 2 days later but I'm wondering why the fever has been so bad the last few times.

    Been busy the last few weeks organising ds birthday which will be in a month! Can't believe it.

    @Gelati: DS started doing the exact same things maybe a month ago. We have to give him something to play with while spoon feeding him. Sometime he just outright refused and only wanted finger food. How did you feed him finger food? We tend to give him a few at a time. If we give him too many, he would just start playing them. Sometime he is also very fussy with the finger food. Like this morning, he threw every piece of apple onto the floor without even tasting it. He was hungry but just didn't want apple. One day he would eat the bean like crazy, the next day he hates it.

    Oh...DS hated blueberries! We tried it again two days ago and he loves it. Childcare tells me that he isn't a fussy eater there. Perhaps just seeing other babies eating the food. When he was at the playdate few days ago, the lady gave him raisins and orange pieces. He loved them. I have never thought about giving him those. I am still scare about him choking so still cut the berries and grape in half. I am sure that daycare doesn't do that. I am over protecting. DS couldn't chew on the orange pieces very well. He actually choked on it, went quiet. Kinda scary. I pat him hard then he sneezed the "skin" out. Don't kow the same way to feed orange then. I didn't let him finish the rest on the tray table afterward.

    Ya, i don't know what to do with the key situation. Last time i had the cleaner came on my day off but i found it difficult to match with DS nap time. She was late for an hour so kinda screw it up. I feel like it is a hassle so have scheduled it on the day DS will be at childcare and i am at work. I could still change my mind about the day but she might not have a spot. She can't lock the deadbolt without the key and it would be unwise to not lock the deadbolt in my area.

    I brought DS to a random GP near home today just to make sure it isn't another conjunctivitis! To be honest, the GP can't tell. Bacteria conjuncvitits would be obvious like last time. He just thought that this is viral if it is conjunctivitits. DS has some discharges but not serious. I guess one has some discharge when wake up or sick as well. anyway, it is now confirmed that he has bronchiolitits again. Sigh.......otherwise, he is not that sick. We just want to keep him home and recovery so he can be not so sick for his birthday party.

    @bbhope oh no! Poor ds. How did they confirm that? Did he still have fever? My friend got bronchitis for the first time and said she'd never felt more sick. High temp for days that wouldn't go away.

    Yes same with ds we only give a little at a time otherwise all on the floor. They are learning to be fussy with food now. One day he eats well then the next he doesn't want it even tho he's hungry. I need to find more ideas for breakfast he is getting tired of bread and oats. Sigh.

    I would def cut up grapes even when they are kids. They are choking hazards. As for blueberries I'm not sure but I still cut them in half.i have given orange but strawberries I give whole but watch him as he eats it. The first few times I've cut it up but then I watch him learn to bite through the whole one and now he is a pro but I still watch him just in case. With mandarin I bite off a piece and feed him. I'm still worried about choking so always watch him closely when he is having big pieces of food. But just remember always cut up grapes. And not in half, length wise
