JFB - I checked out the cyh.com website and:
How much milk?
It is important that children do not drink so much milk that they won't eat other foods as this is a common cause of health problems (such as iron deficiency anaemia) in toddlers
- No less than 375 mls of milk (1 ½ cups) and no more than 500 mls of milk (about 2 cups) a day. It is only one part of what toddlers eat and drink and other foods are needed too.
Sorry I'm not on much at the moment. Hope everyone is ok and recovering from illnesses - hope you are feeling better JFB.
Kel - sounds like you are having it rough atm again. Hope DH works out that a bit better is better than nothing and just one or two resettles is great. We still get up a couple of times to Archie in the middle of the night. He did my head in the other night waking every 1 3/4 hours.

thanks heaps MG: H would probably be drinking 500-600mls of milk / day (often the bit 'extra' is due to sooking at bedtime...just water from now on then).

God, I just resettled archie so he would get a bit more sleep before going to mum and dad's, and made the fatal mistake of going i to Spencer and covering him. He has woken screaming and screeching and inconsolable. He NEEDS more sleep, so i have gone into him and told him to try and sleep more, but he wouldn't even raise his head from the mattress and screeches like there's no tomorrow. I don't know what to do when he's like this. It's like he a scene from the exorcist. He is going to be hideous for the rest of the day, and will most probably wake Archie now.
I hate it, but the best thing for me to do now is to let him carry on in there, because it's pretty obvious he wants nothing to do with me and I'm inflaming the situation. ****

Kel that's a great outcome for your first night home. I always find when I've been away with the kids for a week or more it takes DH a few days to "remember" how to do things for them again. He might also be feeling like he's done a lot to "hold the fort" so to speak while you've been in hospital and maybe that's not getting the attention he thinks it deserves?? Dunno just thinking of things that sometimes get up my DH's nose. I seriously think they think being in hospital with a baby is R&R and the nurses do it all for you and they have it tough at home with s toddler.
Well I'm stoked Marc is down to one feed a day, and that's at around 4am so he can push through to 7am. We're not offering him a bottle at any time other than bedtime and he's not looking for it either. I've also started giving him a hot meal at 4pm and then he tops up with what the girls have for dinner at 5.30pm. He still wakes up quite a bit but we were at the beach a lot over the long weekend so I think he got a bit too much sun.
JFB my kids have never come close to drinking the recommended intake of dairy as milk - I have to get it into them a lot of other ways.

mmm, i might push H's dinner back to 6pm...then give the bottle a bit later as well so he isnt looking for more just b4 bed?? he also wont hardly eat any meat (unless its a sausage or rissole covered in tomoto sauce ) so im starting to query if he getting enuf iron, he used to love spag bol and lamb casserole...
MG: sounds awful. once H missed his day sleep and i thought he was going to be feral but he was actually ok.

MG we posted at the same time.
What you've described is exactly what I went through with Scarlett pretty much every day for the first 9 months of last year until I just stopped her having a day sleep. I had to wake her for the school pick up and she would cry and scream and it was horrible. I had to drag her to the car, walk her through school to get Lucy and back home again. Usually she was fine after about 30 minutes, but geez they were bad times. Your post really took me back. Did S go back to sleep?

Amum, it is rude isn't it when people just don't show. We had a few like that at Amberly's birthday party and then had one mum turn up that hadn't RSVP'd at all and she actually asked my SIL for two party bags and special balloons for her kids. Lucky we had no shows or I wouldn't have had enough.
Sonja, great news re Marc. Hopefully won't be long and you will be able to give the 4am feeds away...
MG, that's really tough. Wish I had some words of wisdom for you, but can only hope that it's a phase he will grow out of soon
BK, so feel for you. Reminds me of my DH... he was not very patient when Amberly was very young. I ended up doing all the settling and sorting so that we could remain civil as a couple. I hope H gets the self settling down
JFB, how's your poor old tum? Feeling any better?
Kismet, hadn't even thought of worms. Amberly's at daycare now, might have to research that too.
Nessie, hope you're feeling better.
Well I'm out this month. Cycle cancelled Just hope AF doesn't take too long to arrive. Have yet to ovulate.... FS said according to scan, nothing has changed. Follicle and lining are still the same as they were at day 10 and I'm now day 19. Think it's just time to give my body a month's breathing space and maybe get that DHEA started in secret..... Thankfully FS assured me no signs of menopause, so can strike that one off the list for now.

Sorry to hear Alittle. Hopefully the break will do you good
Sonja I think you are right. I think I'm just a little sensitive ATM. He has been great with Ruby with not one single complaint. H is just such hard work! Don't know why I thought I was going to have an easy baby this time.
Amum you are so right, it will pass and it will get better.
Gotta go, he's screaming the house down!!

Kel I can only speak for myself obviously but in some ways I found I was much harder on myself 2nd time around. Lucy had been such a bad sleeper I was convinced it was bec we had done everything wrong and if we did it all differently Scarlett would be perfect! Well that didn't happen we did everything differently but she had colic and silent reflux and was prob worse than Lucy. Once I realised that I became quite depressed. It was like "why me".
With Marc again it's completely different. I know now it's got about 0% to do with me and what I do and that you get the baby and we do our best but often that doesn't matter they still don't sleep, they cry and sometimes nothing works.
I guess that's what I mean when I say these days I'm quite zen about lack of sleep as I know what I can control and try and accept what I can't. It's been a hard learned lesson.

hope my post isn't lost....take 2
BK - that's pretty good for 1st night home, remember he's only a couple months old and whenever their environment changes they can become unsettled again. Try not to be too hard on yourself, you are doing a great job. I think the others are right, you settle H for now and let DH take care of Ruby. She is not missing out, she knows you are there.
Alittle - must be disappointing, don't worry you will get there.
MG - Evie does that sometimes when I've accidentally woken her, she wakes up so startled and there's no calming her down for ages, like I've done the worst thing possible to her, even if she's been asleep for 10 minutes she thinks she's had an hour or so & wants up. Holds her hands out for me but when i pick her up cracks it, if I cuddle her throws a fit so I put her down and she still throws a fit. Hate it when I've done it at night just covering her up, usually if I have to get her up again she will go back down about an hr later but not during the day. Apparently she carried on like that at daycare today, she hardly slept at all, and the carers didn't waste anytime in telling me what she was like today, probably cos her face was so red from balling her eyes out. She hasn't been enjoying it there lately for some reason. Thanks for the info on the milk, my chn told me Evie only needs 300mls of dairy including yogurt etc, I know she gets a bit more but now I've seen that I think I'm doing the right thing with her.
JFB - what did you eat to get so sick? couldn't imagine anything worse especially when preggers, my gut is still sore from my vomit the other night. Since Evie had the squirts she's been having her day bot again cos she wasn't eating enough. Didn't take one to daycare for her today but I think that's why she was cracking it all arvo, she was probably looking for it. If I do give her one it's just a small amount and I try to reduce it each time. I was going to try making some meatloaf with veg in it for Evie, she mostly eats sausage (usually pork), spag bol and rissoles too, made her cottage pie yesterday, she loves that, but as far as steak goes she's not too fussed probably too hard for her to eat as she still only has 8 teeth, no molars have popped thru yet, they're taking ages. She use to like lamb but only if it's in a casserole, I find she takes so long to eat anything meat usually dries out before she can finish it, would be like leather. Made a lamb baked dinner last week, she liked that bcs it had gravy over the meat. She's loving ham sandwiches atm.
Nessie - bugger about being sick. Next week should be good except Tues or Weds. As for poos, I'd ask gp next time you see them if you're not sure, if they say it's unusual they might get you to do a poo sample, Evie had this done once when she was younger to rule out any bacteria. Is the poo normal texture? Sometimes E will poor more often if she is firmer than usual, probably cos she hasn't finished the 1st time. Generally she does one sometimes 2 a day now. Even with the squirts she did 3 or 4 usually after she ate anything.
Q...since having E and bfing, I still sometimes get some hardness on my right boob and feel a bit uncomfy, I think it's around ovulation. Does anyone else get this?
Doing a zumba class tomorrow night, about time I got of my blot and did something, the way I feel today though don't know how I will get the stamina...suck it up.
