No more shots until 1 here in the UK. They have shots at 8, 12 and 16 weeks and then no more until 1 year old.

How is Tesa now Vlada? Any sign of teeth yet?

Woodcliff, cocoa, mandy, rebecca, everybody else...how are you all!?!?

Vlada, both of my little ones are REALLY fussy at the end of the day from about 4.30pm. And yes they are chewing their hands, drooling, sucking lips etc. Maybe it's pre-teething! I don't think we get any check ups here in the UK now. We're on our own! There are weighing clinics and drop ins you can ...

Rebecca, I too have found naps really difficult during the day. They are good at night, we start bathing them at 6pm, then feed straight after and then to bed, so they are normally asleep by 7pm. They sleep till 6.30am which is great. The daytime is a different story and very variable, but I've star...

Wow that's great news about Sciteacher77! I haven't been checking any of the other boards, I barely find the time to keep up with this one! Cocoa you have my sympathy with the reflux. One of my boys (Jack) had it really bad when he was born and was also on Zantac and the thickened formula (Aptamil E...

It's been ages since I posted so I just thought I'd drop in and say HI! Things are going well...nighttimes are wonderful now - bedtime at 6.30/7.00PM and then we don't hear a peep out of either of the boys until 6AM!!! I didn't think we would ever get there, but I'm so glad we have! I think seperati...

Hi Vlada,

They aren't having much rice...just a few spoons really to try to get them used to food, and most of it ends up on their face!

They are 13 weeks and 3 days today!

Is Tesa breastfeeding or bottle? I read that breastfed babies can wake up more in the night...

Aw that's sad Vlada. I lost my Mum to cancer when I was a teenager and I miss her so much now I have the twins. My DH's Mum comes over twice a day to help with the day feeds which is a great help but I so wish my Mum was here to help and see my little ones :cry: I'm sure she is watching over us all ...

Ok all you twin mummys out there...are your 2 still sleeping in the same room? I'm finding now that one of my little ones is a much better sleeper than the other and would possibly go longer through the night given half the chance. The problem is that his brother seems to be waking him up quite a bi...

Regarding IVF in the UK...I enquired about getting a "free" first try, but found out that you have to have been trying to conceive for years and had to have a definite fertility problem. As I still have one tube left after my ectopic there was still a chance I could have conceived naturally so I cou...

Woodcliff, they wake up on their own for the 11-12pm feed. However last night they didn't, so like you I thought I'd leave them to see how long they'd go. It was only until 1am, so we fed them 6oz and they went back to sleep. They still woke up at 4am, probably thinking they wanted feeding, but I di...

Hi woodcliff, I never realised it wasn't just feeding that filled them up with gas! I wanted BPA free Dr Brown bottles but they aren't available in the UK yet. Anytime now apparently but I've now spent a fortune on a stash of regular bottles. My little ones are 10 weeks old today! And yes they feed ...

I am using Dr Browns bottles...they are widely available and are stocked by most baby shops in the UK. However...having looked at the Playtex ones Vlada is using I think I would have definitely gone for those instead. The principle is the same in that they both let air in at the bottom of the bottle...

Hi everyone. Hmm nap schedules...my little monkeys like to doze off all day on and off, with no particular schedule. This is playing havoc with nighttime because I think they are sleeping to much during the day. I've tried keeping them awake more during the day but it's impossible...they just sleep ...

Woodcliff..how did your experiment work out, with waking the babies at 11pm for a top up feed then seeing if they slept a long stretch?

Mine have gotten a bit worse, waking every couple of hours at night, but it could be related to their jabs.
