Good luck Kel. Hope you get H sorted.
We're going through hell here at the moment with Marc's night waking and Scarlett's day time tantrums, which I'm too sleep deprived to handle. After a lot of discussion we've decided to wean Marc. He's nearly 12 months and none of my kids sleep properly until weaned. I would love to continue to feed him but with DH going away again the week after next we need to get on top of this.
Fiona I used to have dumb pregnant moments all the time like that. And then I'd forget I had a baby on me. One day I was wearing Scarlett in the baby bjorn and I'd sat down at our local cafe bakery to eat a warm chocolate croissant. After a while a few people started staring and one of the cooks who I was friends with told me Scarlett's sleeping head was covered in gooey chocolate. It was so hard to clean. I was so embarrassed. I'd forgotten she was there.
Ok everyone - first night tonight with no boobs. Wish me luck!

good luck kel....sleep deprivation is just agony. from memory i think u had a pretty good success with R there???
good luck sonja...12 months is a mammoth effort both bbs and sleep deprivation...i fully "want" #2 to be sleeping thru by 9 months....whether that will happen who knows...will try. ive picked 9 months cos that the age the sleep and settle manual reckons kids can realistically sleep thru from (with training ....)
fiona: almost all of my maternity tops have stains on them from food dropping on my belly.....i had to chnage tops 3 times yesterday b4 i could find a stain free one for work.....donuts...omg..another one of my addictions and one avoid almost all the time....
well yep h has been having late sleeps at daycare...was told he didnt wake til 2.30pm..i know he wouldnt sleep til 8.30-9pm lat night and was right....will have to ask them to wake him up after 45 minutes if he doesnt go down til late ....i just HATE having no kid free time at night..........especially as the belly seems bigger at night too...really starting to get in the way now....

Goodluck Sonja, 12 months IS a mammoth effort. For some reason I've found BF harder this time round. I think it's just the time it takes with a toddler crawling around you. My bbs have hurt/leaked/stung more this time too...maybe I'd just forgotten with Ruby, but all I have to do is think about bf and it's like electric shocks through them. Eewwww.

Well it didn't happen. Started off fine but wound up feeding him at 4 as DH had been up with Scarlett bet 12 and 2. We were all so tired when he woke at 4 I just fed him.
Try again tonight.

Goodluck tonight Sonja! You have done amazing to feed him up until now, my milk only lasted 5 months.
Kel will be thinking of you today, enjoy a much deserved rest.

Sonja - you've done remarkably well, good luck with the weaning, last night was almost there, hopefully it won't be long now. Couldn't help but laugh at the choc on head though, oops.
BK - good luck at sleep school, hope it works out well. I think hormones are more "alert" after 1st pregnancy.
We finally got to the beach today, 1st nice day in ages. Evie was so funny, she takes awhile to adjust to anything new to her, liked the sand but not much of the water. We were playing near the rock pools and she freaked when her feet started to sink in the wet sand or if the water was above her ankles, loved chasing the seaguls. We were standing in ankle deep water and I spotted a blue ringed octopus only a few feet away from us, quickly grabbed her and got well away..eek.

Well AF has arrived with avengance 2 days of crying and I think I've cried out a good chunk of frustration and hurt. Seems it's not 3rd time lucky for us, so next stop is a natural FET. At least it will be an easier run than a fresh cycle.
Sonja, how did you go last night?
BK, hope you're getting some rest finally.
JFB, hope you sort daycare out to claim back some night time hours for yourself.
Nessie, how is liver cleansing going.... good on DH for at least doing it with you. I doubt I could get mine to do it.
Hi to all I've missed.

Sorry Alittle. I'm sure one of your little frosties will be the one
Kismet. I loved the photos of Evie at the beach, so cute. Ruby insists on taking her bucket and spade when we go to the beach. She just shovels sand all day. Lol
Well this really does feel like club mum-med, I've done a lot of sleeping and the middies have done most of the settling. They only brought him in for feeds last night which was 11 and 3. They managed to stretch him out through constant resettling. So hopefully he can get into a better pattern here and we can keep it up when we get home. I miss Ruby though...DH took her to her best friends birthday party today. Bummed that I missed it. ...not missing the chaos of home though

Alittle I used to let myself cry for 48 hours after every disappointment then I made myself pull it together for the sake of Lucy. I'm sure your baby is waiting for you very close by.
Kel glad to hear things have improved for you in terms of getting sleep. I hope things improve when you get home. I'd be hopeless at sleep school I only ever last 3 nights in hospital after I've had a baby before I discharge myself and go home. I can never sleep in the beds - are they giving you some mother's little helpers? I'd need a few
Well no advance on the weaning. I'm only feeding at 4 am and DH is doing any of the others (usually one around 11) which isn't ideal for an almost one year old but he fell over today and bumped his head and the only thing that calmed him was a breastfeed. He's my last baby and the last time I'll experience the ability to comfort him so easily so I'm sticking with it for a bit longer.
