Disney, i never read any books, but ive heard Tizzy Halls Save our sleep is very routine driven... PERSONALLY, for ME, i disagree with her way of thinking... Yet i know alot of parents who have had success with it at the same time.
To give you an idea...we have a routine with DS...but not a fixed ridged one (Others who work with young children will understand)
Generally...our day goes like this (Keeping in mind he is almost 2)
Short play till Breakfast
Go out if we need to - errands etc, some housework. Have morning tea while out if needed. If at home we just play, go outside etc.
Short play inside, quietish play.
Play while i prepare/cook dinner - outside if we can.
Lunch and dinner are the only semi rigid things.. Lunch is ready 12-12.30ish (no later) otherwise it pushes his sleep back and he is up all night. Dinner is ready around 5.30.
I have heard (as an example only, not 100% sure) Tizzy hall is more rigid with things like
dont quote me, but i believe she is more set to the clock. maybe have a read n see if it suits you?

Hey Everyone thanks for the reassurance!
Well af was supposed to come tomorrow but just as i got to work (TMI warning) i felt wetness and yeah sure enough she showed her ugly face one day early! Thinking about it, it makes sense a little because i o'd earlier (CD13 instead of 16). Also the fact my boobs weighed a bajillion kgs (or at least it felt like it) and I had an epic headache i should have known she was coming.
So I suppose this all means im officially starting my TTC journey !!!! With the 27 day cycle i just had pink pad estimates i will ovulate on my 10 year anniversary with DH !!! I think thats a little romantic!

Update on my TWW - No symptoms what so ever so not feeling very confident. I assume boobs being sore is a top symptom and mine are normal. Dammit! I cant believe I want my boobs to hurt haha

Re: 2013...The year of BFP's!
Well when we came home I was demand feeding, but we then had to change on paed recommendations..whad to feed him every 3 hours, even if he was asleep as he lost too much weight.
As he caught up, we swapped and let him sleep through feeds and go on his cues. Honestly early on is a blur but I went with him most of the time.... As he got older we started to notice his natural body routine and fell in with it. I've sort of planned my day around him hence going out in the mornings. Its rare for him to be up before 4 pm. He now has one nap of 2-3 hours on average each day... Sometimes longer.
I found us having a set lunch, pulled everything else into line, especially nap, then bed times.
I've used a mix of his natural routine and what happens in childcare, also, bath times at night became routine immediately after dinner as bubbas on are messssssy! Lol some days he showers with me in the mornings also.
As for tizzy hall, I disagree with her methods of sleep training. I hate hearing him cry, so therefore don't leave him to do so) from what I understand she does a variation on controlled crying.
I also disagree with setting a baby to the clock rigidly... I can see its merits and that it works for others, but they just aren't for me.
I also have heard she advocates practices which encourage blurred lines with, or goes against sids practices like several layers for bed times. I've also heard she encourages bubs to be wrapped into car seats, and the safety of it is questioned. I'm not sure on her stance on these issues but seen them debated quite heatedly.
My suggestion if you are after information on parenting.....research child development. Things like their emotional, physical, language, social development etc.
Then read anything you can. Theres some styles of parenting out there (I would be considered very close to an attachment parent) but theres all different names for different ways.
Once you have done that, decide what sounds like you best and what matches your theories with child development that you read, behaviour guidance etc. and run with it. just be consistent.

Just updating, been away for a couple of days - lots to catch up on!
No news here really, about 11dpo, depending on my luteal phase length, af might not be due until Tuesday or Wednesday as I think I O'd a day or two late (assuming I have a 14 day luteal phase), af's due sometime between Sun-Tues I guess. Temp is still up which is good but could easily change...still getting lots of cm which is kind of weird for me - I'm constantly wet like i'm Oing! But I definitely O'd about 11 days ago and I have my bbt to prove it!
I've been testing everyday but its still neg, hopefully its still early. Getting discourage though, just feels like its not this month ...despite the unusual symptoms!

Shadow - thanks so much for your advice. It's really helpful. I find people can be a little weird when it comes to talking about parenting almost like its a little taboo or something. It's hard to get honest opinions?!? I'll start looking into the child development side of things. Never even considered that!
Lilnightmare - totally agree on how funny it is that women want all the horrible symptoms and hang out for them! It's the first time I've had my boobs feel heavy and pms headaches. I am looking forward to the tww symptoms though!!
Cantwaitforbubba - thanks for the nice welcome into ttc land! I have waited SO long for this. I can't believe it's here!! I hope you get your positive result soon!! How many times did you dtd through o week?
Actually ladies how many times does everyone dtd during o week? Or do you just wait for a pos OPk then dtd?!?
Blotched - I hope this is your month, don't get disheartened, it's gotta be Tough getting the negative results but keep the positive vibes going!!
I haven't bought any hpt. I don't want to be temped to test early. I'm going to wait until af is late and then go and buy a clear blue. I can see myself becoming quite obsessed with testing in the tww, much like my new found addiction of OPk so I think it's best not to arm myself with the tools to test for pregnancy! Super excited for the first time I can buy a hpt though!!
