    Lea wow!! We have just finished our Losec attempt. It made no difference for us. So glad you're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. How much was the nurse if you don't mind me asking.
    No worries it was $250. It's called whispers cottage based in sydney. They are on call when ever you have any questions. Another great things is they are familiar with your baby, which helps for getting solutions to your questions.

    @MrsTugs you can get similar night nannies in Perth for that price... they train you and the baby... I saw a consultant early on and followed her advice but we still have a dummy... the comforter is the biggest trick and consistency... same routine every time we put her down!

    I just want to give my opinion on a dummy. They aren't as bad as everyone makes them out to be. They were a god send to our daughter and she gave it up voluntarily at 22 months. It broke and she put it in the bin.

    I'm not against Dummies. I'm just worried that he'll wake throughout the night when the dummy falls out. What is everyone else's experience??

    The resources i have read say exactly that, the dummy settles them initially but then prevents from deep sleep. Thereby It reduces sids risk apparently. Our DS simply lost interest in them one day...
    @MrsTugs: leap 4 - when did that happen?!?

    Sorry to to hear about babies being sick. That sucks.

    little update from us, I have been back at work for four weeks now. My little man will be 4 months next week. He is good but reverse cycling pretty badly, up every 2.5-3 hrs at night and clinging to the boob whenever I'm home. I'm on three motilium a day and usually pump 150 mls while at work, then breastfeed when I'm home. At 7kgs, little son gets way more formula during the day than I would like but what can you do.I requested to work from home on Wednesdays but they are dragging their feet with the application. Grrh. It does seem to be enough breast milk to keep his immunity up touch wood. His dad is doing well as a sahd.

    DS loves watching us eat. May be interested in solids soon.

    We are booked to see the fertility specialist in January. I guess we will go for our first cycle feb / march. So I guess I will be weaning in a month or two.

    I was severely against dummies pre Bub. I didn't want to get into the vicious "putting dummy back in cycle". My opinions on the matter became irrelevant however when H decided he had zero intentions of taking one. So like them or not, they're not an option for us unfortunately. He's a very sucky baby so he would benefit greatly from one.

    J has used s dummy basically since day dot and there isn't an issue with him waking when it falls out of his mouth. I sometimes hear it fall out ( he is still in our room in a bassinet) and sometimes it's already out when I go to bed. He can fall asleep without it which he does. I think it's a god send. It gets me another hours sleep in the morning as he stirs to wake up at about 6. I pop the dummy in and he falls straight back to sleep until7 most mornings.

    I don't get why they are viewed as bad by so many people? If your baby settles better and gets comfort from it then why not use it. Whatever works I say!

    I wasn't planning on giving my LO a dummy but they gave him one in the NICU without asking me. I was a bit annoyed but that all went out the window once he came back to us and I realised that if it gave me more sleep then it was worth it and I would worry about it falling out later! We bought heaps of dummies so that we would always have one on hand but then a few weeks ago he decided he didn't want a dummy anymore, like NORgirl's little one.

    He seems to prefer his fingers now so at least we don't have to worry about them falling out...though we will have to start saving for the orthodontist! I sucked my fingers for years and ended up wearing retainers and braces for most of my adolescence as a result. Hopefully he will grow out of it much earlier than I did!

    That's against policy Gypsy, I would be so furious about that.
