Huhhhhhh, Amanda! You bribed Millie! Not the way to teach her that crying will get her what she wants. She'll cry twice as loud next time and it'll cost you £16 ^roflmao^ ^roflmao^ ^roflmao^ ^roflmao^

(ps - please read the above as tongue in cheek - have lost count of the times I said I wouldn't bribe Jack, and mostly I don't, but sometimes it's just the only answer ^chuckle^).

Have just had a splurge and bought myself a bottle of Jean Paul Gaultier perfume (the one that comes in a bottle the shape of a woman's torso) on Ebay. Haven't had a bottle of that since I got one duty free before going on my honeymoon and it's my absolute fave. Have sold a lot of stuff recently on Ebay and the money's just sitting in my Paypal account looking at me. Should transfer it to my bank account really, but sod it! I never buy stuff for myself these days and decided to treat myself ;D

Whoppa sorry to hear about Dougie's dad - hope things go OK next week with the op.

Gill - if the wee one continues to be sick ensure that she is getting plenty of fluid. If need be stop the milk and just give plain cooled water and light food. If she had a temperature or seems to be getting dehydrated contact your gp. Josh pukked for a week but didn't have a temperature etc so wasn't given anything by the dr - he just took water and ate light food for the week.

Well must go. Hope everyone is fine .

Hi Everyone, hoping you can help me.

I am not sure if Emma is getting enough milk or if she is having to much food, I will list below what she has;

8am 1 full 4month jar of baby cereal & 5oz of milk

12pm 7oz of milk

4pm half jar of 4 month baby savoury jar and half jar of 4 month baby dessert jar and 4oz milk

8pm 6-7 oz of milk

She loves solids and cant get enough of it and would eat more but going off her milk, she is also a very sicky baby am I feeding her to much solids and not enough milk.

Thanx
Caroline xx

Hiya Caroline

I think its a big fact on here that once babies start on solids they gradually go off their milk and want to eat more food.

Your day plan of food basically sounds like the plan Millie was following about that time....but you are managing to get more milk into Emma then I was with Millie.

I am no expert (you need Jeanette for that) but I would say that as long as she is basically following the same centile line on the growth chart and not losing weight she's doing ok. Sorry not much help......the others will post to you too I am sure :)

I think I can qualify for bad mother of the year award :'(

This morning Amy and I were having our cuddle in bed and I held out my hands for her take hold of and pulled her into a sitting position - I do/did this all the time and never had a problem
Anyway heard a click and she began screaming and her arm was floppy. She didn't move her arm for toys, bottle anything so called A+E and went straight there, she had to have an X-ray and it was found that she had a dislocated her elbow in me sitting her up that way :(

The DR was very nice said it happens all the time, he put her arm back but she still isn't using it very much and cries if she bangs it :( the Dr says it will be like this for a few days. I feel soooo awful and just want to hold and cuddle her so she knows that I didn't mean it. Now just waiting for my call from the HV to follow it up.

Anyway hope everyone else is okay, on a brighter note isn't the weather fab ;D Spent the day in the park playing and lying in the grass - fab, although she obviously couldn't go on the swings today.

Right off to make the bottles
Love sarah x x x

I agree with Amanda, they generally start to go off their Milk, you're getting more into Emma than Amy had at that time and at the mo.

If she's gaining weight and eating well then she should be ok. Someone told me that a fromage frais is equivelent to 3-5oz of milk, Amy has one a day to get some calcium stuff into her.

Hope this helps
Love sarah x x

Oh Sarah, poor little Amy (((((hugs))))) xxxxxx

You really must not blame yourself, these things happen, and like the dr said it sounds like it's very common.

Can't imagine how you must have felt though (((((hugs)))))) to you too xx

Hope her arm's better soon!

Love Jules xxx

Sarah - ^cuddleup^ can only imagine how awful you must have felt.

But I can see how easily done that is - Iestyn's arms are quite dainty and I am paranoid I will end up dislocating them or something.

Don't beat yourself up over it - The number of times I've had Iestyn sat up over the last couple of days and then all of a sudden he's fallen back and really banged his head - I've lost count and can't believe I still seem to put him in such situations!

At least you managed to get out today and enjoy the weather!

Love,

Sue xxxxxxxxx

Caroline - sounds like you're doing great to me - I definately wasn't managing to get that much milk down Iestyn when he first started on Solids.

Love,

Awwww, Sarah, ^Cuddle^ You are not a bad mother! I can imagine how awful you feel though ^Cuddle^ Lost count the number of times I've pulled Ben into a sitting position like that - I think most mum's do because babies seem to enjoy it. Never thought it'd dislocate anything - not doing it anymore though!

Caroline - Sounds fine to me ;D Lovely to hear from you by the way ;D

FC - Hope everything's okay with your nan ^Cuddle^

Ben's well and truly finding his feet now. If he's within striking distance of anything he can pull himself up on, then he's up on his feet, grinning away and calling for anyone in the nearby vecinity to have a look at him. So funny! Sometimes he can sit back down and sometimes he just starts to cry when his legs get tired and needs a bit of help - bless. Only problem is, he can't crawl yet, so if I put him sitting away from anything he can pull up on, he gets in a right strop because he can't stand up. Amazing how strong his legs have gotten just in the past few days too, and how quickly his balance has come on. I can have him just grip my one finger on one hand now and he can stand. Mum had him today whilst I was at work, and said she was trying to get him to take steps whilst holding his hands, but I think that's a bit ambitious yet!

Love

Jayne x
