    hi,
    Baby Elizabeth is 6 weeks. she is a good baby but no way near sleeping thru yet! grrrr...
    my main problem is DD1 reaction to DD2. DD1 is 4 years old and we had a party for her yesterday at a park. beautiful weather, location by the water, had a fairy do face painting and play games. had 14 other kids there...a little girls dream party...princesses, fairies, balloons, made a rapunzel cake....but my little devil thru tanti after tanti and was rude to the fairy, and rude to everyone. screamed at every opportunity. i was in tears. i am so embarressed and mortified. i spent today ringing parents and apologising. we got her home from party where she had another screaming match til 10pm. she woke up this morning and had another 2 hour rage session... im exhausted. shes been banned her presents from the party until she behaves and until shes written sorry cards to her friends. the worst part is when she was cutting her cake she got so angry (wind blew out candles) that she hit the table with a carving knife and then threw the knife at one of her friends nearly hitting him with the knife...my god i was so upset. we took her straight home and she missed out on the cake etc but gee im embarressed. we are at a loss at what to do - elizabeth is 6 weeks old - we thought shed settle a bit by now. .....

    elizabeth spews all the time - huge ones - can hit the wall opposite you! and fill an face cloth - she has reflux but i dont worry about it so long as shes gaining weight. she needs top ups of food though after a huge spill. i have to keep her upright after a feed and for any nappy changes! all cots, bassinets and nappy change station are all on a 25% angle ..

    Omg gampa I feel so bad for you. Ds1 has been great and absolutely loves his little brother and I would not be coping at all if I had to go through what you are. Have you thought about getting her some counselling or talking to you doc about the situation ? You are doing so well to still be sane, I admire your strength so much.

    Gampa you poor thing, I don't think I'd cope at all, I reckon seeing someone about it is good advice, you can't keep living like that!

    Myles is 4 weeks... Our biggest issue is still breastfeeding! I would really like to be able to but it's killing me, saw another LCD on Thursday & everything went well so decided to give it another go, I have been expressing pretty much every feed.., yesterday the pain got too much, my nipples where killing me & I had painful lumps, I was in tears last night so spoke to my cousin who had mastitis 4 times with her last bub, she told me how to clear lumps, thank god I managed to... I had a massive sleep this morning & have been expressing & boobs & nipples are feeling heaps better... I'll give it another go today & see what happens!

    Still confused with the whole alternating thing maybe I'm doing it wrong?? I guess I will ask the lactation consultant next time I speak to her...whether I've not fed for 1 hour or 3, I always start from the same boob I finished on...but I guess if thy refill then that doesn't really make sense does it???

    try not to confuse being tired with hunger - the signs often very similar. will root, cry, look hungry when all they need is resettling. i would try to resetlle if under 2 hours even if it means he is in your arms temporarily.
    i know there was a discussion re dummies earlier on in the thread but reflux babies need to suck as it sucks the acid back down and is therapeutic. even tressilian - bad babycentre! - reccomends them for reflux- have you considered using one for resettling so you can get him to go for 21/2 - 3 hourly?
    Orlando is a massive sucker but will not take a dummy - we've tried about 4 separate times and he just spits it out! Not a hugely bad thing as I didn't really want to use one anyway!!

Have been told their digestion and routine all seem to get sorted round the 6 weeks and seeing how fast the last month has gone, it will all be sorted very soon.
    Oh my gosh Orlando LOVES being starkers on the change table...that's the only real awake time he has..very cute!

    Jaan is 10 weeks, he's now holding his head, smiling, following us with his eyes, batting at hanging toys, sleeps all night with 1 or 2 tiny feeds but we cosleep so I don't get tired. Biggest problem is breastfeeding, I get lumps every 2 days which result in mega pain, I think I've had a few weeks of breast thrush, also still using about 90ml of formula a day. The other small problems, he hates his car seat and pram, loves being carried in the sling. He has totally chosen attachment parenting on his own accord which I'm fine with I just need to remember that's the way he is, he also never cries so feeling quite blessed. Everything is doable when you're not suffering from fatigue. If I was tired I think the breastfeeding would have stopped. I now only pump when I get lumps which is great, I hate pumping!
