Dove from Tennant Creek....... Rss

Hi Sunshine,

Haven't heard from you in a while. I guess bubs is keeping you busy. A months old now! I just hope you are managing with things ok, and Serenity is settling into a bit of a routine for you. We're here for you if you need to chat or ask any questions.

Sorry to hear about your separation, it must be a hard thing to handle after you have just had a baby. I hope it's turning out to be for the best and that you have some friends or family to help and support you.

This baby must be wreaking havoc with my hormones cos I had a shocking week last week. I was very impatient and snappy with James, and ended up even yelling at him quite a bit! It didn't help that he was irritable also due to teething. But I had a good cry one day and since then have been feeling much better.

Are you ok and dealin with things well in general?

I hope you are having a good day today anyway & just take it one day at a time as I do.

Hi Sunshine!
Sorry to hear about your separation.
How have you been coping? If you ever need an ear feel free to let us know and I can give you my personal email and I'm sure Kristina would say the same.
I found wrapping my DS tight and tucking him in worked to settle him in bed. I'm not sure what's it's like weatherwise there for you (never been there) but there are plenty of wraps out there you could use so she doesn't get too hot.
Have you tried settling her then putting her down?
I always found the pram worked for that. Pushing DS back and forth put him to sleep then I could move him.
Look after yourself and enjoy your little princess.
Where does your family live? Are you close with them?

Hi Sunshine!
It's good you are able to talk to him but it's the last thing I'm sure you want to hear is that's he's happier! No wonder you cry. So would I. Hang in there! I'm sure it'll get better and just remember you have a gorgeous little girl to love and to love you. It's great she's sleeping better! Must feel better for you getting more sleep. I know I'm miserable when I have lack of good solid sleep.
Yeah let us know if you come up and if we are around (which I'm sure we will be) then would be great to meet up somewhere sometime!
It's great you have your folks around to help. Are you close?
Look after yourself and your precious angel!
