Bekajoy replied to topic August 2004 bubs, how are they doin now?

Rhys all of a sudden seems to be grown up. One minute he's a baby who just smiled when we talked. Now we're interacting with him. It's amazing. Rhys says a few words but mainly does the pointing/g...

Bekajoy replied to topic Not interested in Finger Foods

Our little man is almost 16mths old too. He loves eating sandwiches, crackers, cheese and fruit but it's more difficult getting him to eat vegies now. He used to love them. These days I tend to "hi...

I've been checking out Kmart's toy sale catalogue - so many great toys! We don't have much storage space out our place so I have to be really selective in what we buy. We have a few smaller toys a...

Bekajoy replied to topic 6 mnth old baby refusing breast milk from breast

Rhys is only my first but I've found that he seems to 'snack' when his gums hurt from teething. Or he'll have a nibble in the afternoon and go back to playing, but at the next feed he'll be really ...

Bekajoy replied to topic TEETHING, AND CRAWLING

You see the difference up close having twins! My bub got his 2 bottom teeth at 4 1/2 mths. My mother in law said hubby got his teeth at 3mths so whether early teething is hereditory or not. Rhys ...

Bekajoy replied to topic periods after breastfeeding??????

I'm breastfeeding but got my period after about 5mths. Rhys is my first and I've found my periods are much heavier than they used to be beforehand.

Bekajoy replied to topic How many feeds does your bub have?

Yes, my almost 8mth old went through a few stages where he ate heaps then slowed down and had longer, more frequent sleeps. I also thought it was growth spurts. We go for his 8mth checkup next Thu...

My son Rhys was also born on 20 August. He's teething at the moment and just started 'commando crawling'. He's getting pretty fast now!

My little boy is 7 1/2 mths old and is currently cutting 3 of the top teeth! He got the bottom 2 at 4 1/2 mths, the right lateral incisor a couple of weeks ago, and the 3 next to it seem to be mak...

Bekajoy replied to topic How many feeds does your bub have?

Rhys (7 1/2mths) has 160mls 5-6 times/day (depending on whether he gets up 4hrly or lasts longer) and 3 meals. He's been eating a LOT recently but he's also teething so perhaps that's why.

Bekajoy replied to topic are there any working breastfeeding mums

Wow, jenniwren - 250ml bottles! I'll have to hunt for that brewer's yeast myself. The last few workdays I've found it easier to express. It does take a while but eventually I get letdown and get a...

Bekajoy replied to topic doesn't drink enough milk

My 7mo son drinks 160-180mls when he has his bottles of expressed milk. He feeds very quickly off me now (5-10mins) so not sure how much he's taking in. Most days he feeds 4hrly but sometimes at ni...

Bekajoy replied to topic Pressure!!!

I don't know if I'd call what I got 'pressure' - but maybe because I had planned to breastfeed it was more 'encouragement'. Apart from a few learning issues in the first couple of days, Rhys & I t...

I remember it used to take Rhys forever to burp sometimes! Hubby discovered he burped better when held upright over the shoulder (covered with a spare nappy or teatowel to catch any blurps) patted ...

It was great when I could express what I needed at work for the next workday. Now I have to work out how much more I need and try and fit it around feeds. The last few days I've found it difficult...

Bekajoy replied to topic Any late breastfeeders?

My son is 7mths and he feeds every 4hrs. Sometimes at night he'll last for 5-6hrs but for the last week it's been back to 4 hrly. And there I was hoping starting solids would reduce night feeds...

Bekajoy replied to topic Manual breast pumps vs Electric Pumps

I use the Medela manual pump. I find it easy to use although sometimes my arm hurts from pumping (prob should swap hands sometimes). When my bub was younger (he's now 7mths) I used to be able to e...
