    I might try the sleeping on tummy thing during day (using a grobag) while I can sit beside him the whole time just to see. Any time I normally place him on tummy he just tries to crawl (!!).
    ez is exactly the same. I'm not sure where this newborns can't lift their heads thing comes from because he's got a very strong neck too, has had since birth!? E also does the lunging thing when being carried, I keep warning dh to hold him securely esp going up/down stairs as he tends to do this half jump out of our hands like he's trying to go somewhere 😂

    and yes, tummy time always has ez crawling off his mat. I turned around once and when I came back he'd come off his mat and had a mouthful of rug. I just about died 😂

    DS had a super strong neck (lifted it up to look around just after he was born).

    DD - not so much. Although she does lift it up. She does not have much interest in doing that or standing/frawling (DS was forever trying to move).

    Thanks for that. XH is on Centrelink at the moment which means we are getting regular CS payments and they work out to be $1.13/day/kid. I'm grateful for anything from CS as I know so many others who don't get anything. It just makes me cranky, not at CS or C/L but at XH. There is no reason why he can't work, he's just a lazy a$$. But if he was working, he'd be dodging CS anyway as he changes jobs whenever they catch up to him.

    Boys. Can not stop moving!! A parenting book I read actually suggests it's an inbuilt thing with boys - they must move to get rid of energy. Just didn't realise it's like that from birth 😂

    Taking Prince's death hard. I wouldn't have called myself a huge fan until yesterday when I realised how much I really adored him.

    I am also at swimming lessons and have paid off this whole term and am starting on next term. Feeling pretty proud of myself right now.

    Sunny we sleep DD on her side, she's much more settled that way. I have a Snuza hero which you clip onto their nappy and will alarm if it doesn't feel movement. I know most aren't comfortable with it, but it's working for us and keeping us sane

    Before birth! DS was CRAZY in my belly. And of course at 3 he still hasn't stopped. Even in his sleep he moves!

    So that would buy like a whole apple per child per day 😡

    I am a little excited I pumped some milk today. Hopefully DS/DH can give DD a little feed tonight (fingers crossed she likes the bottle...) - I am battling the thought of mixed feeding. I BF DS for 2.5 years. So I feel terrible for thinking of doing it to DD. I have only been feeding her for 2 weeks.
