Hi...took the 2 boys for their jabs this morning. It wasn't actually as bad as I was expecting. It was 1 jab in each thigh, and they had 2 nurses do them at the same time so it was over in a couple of seconds. The babies howled for a few seconds then it was all over! They are really unsettled now th...

Vlada, sorry to hear Tesa has a cold...I'm dreading my boys getting sick but I know it will happen. They have got their first set of jabs tomorrow and it's meant to be horrible - one in each thigh and they scream apparently. Kip, my boys both had really dry flaky and slightly red skin, particularly ...

How's everyone doing? I thought I'd let you know I managed to get both boys to drop the middle of the night feed on Saturday night. They fed at 11.30pm as is pretty much usual, but then they didn't wake until 3.30am, they usually wake at 2.30am and we feed them at 3am. Instead of feeding them me and...

Aw Vlada are things any better with Tesa? Have you considered it could be colic causing the early evening screaming sessions? Since I stopped breastfeeding I used a normal bottle, and I could even HEAR the little ones taking down air with the bottle. But now I use Dr Browns bottles and they are just...

Cocoa, thanks for the tip about apple juice! I did go to my pharmacist in the end and she recommended a small dose of lactose syrup - sounds similar to what you suggested. I gave some to both boys and Jack did manage to go yesterday afternoon! It was quite hard to start but then it exploded so hopef...

Nice one Cocoa - good to be over on this thread! My 2 are keeping me very busy. It's been a bit difficult as they are both a bit constipated. I spoke to the doctor about it and she said it's normal because of the switch from breastmilk to formula. But that was like 3 weeks ago! She said it can take ...

Hi Cocoa, yes I've gone back to changing just before every feed...I much prefer it and you're right, it wakes them up enough to get them to feed properly. Last night was better, though I think they are still a bit out of step with day and night... Bathed and fed them at 7pm, didn't seem sleepy at al...

Hi Everyone, hope you are all doing well! Woodcliff...my little ones are also tempting me with more than 3 hours sleep at a time. They have been fairly good for the past few days, feeding 5oz at 11pm and then the next one at 3am, then 7am. It was looking like they might go slightly longer, because i...

I am shattered! My little ones are tending to be quite awake from midnight to the 3am feed, which means I am not getting much sleep. They are asleep alot of the day which I guess means they are not tired enough at night. What's anyone else doing with naps during the day? How many, what times, how lo...

Hi Cocoa, YES I'm up for a new thread on the parents board!!! Wow feels weird to say the P word! Re formula... I've been told that the formula needs to be mixed with water over 70 degrees in order for the hot water to kill any germs that may be in the powder (powder isn't sterile). No way can I make...

Hi everyone, just a very quick question about making up bottles. All my books, the instructions on the formula etc all say you need to make up bottles as you need them and not make them up in advance. Surely people make them up in advance right? My sister used to just add boiling water to enough bot...

Babyb not sure there is a secret to getting both babies on at the same time...I do need my DH to help me though. I need 2 hands to get them latched on, so I get the first one on, then my DH hands me the 2nd one and then he holds baby 1 to make sure he doesn't come off while I get number 2 on! Becaus...

Hello everyone! Me and my little ones are doing OK, just v v tired. I am feeding both on the boob (at the same time....geez), and they both appear to be feeding well. But what about all this 20 mins+ for feeding? My boys are lucky to suckle for 10 mins, and they just stop after that, presumeably bec...

Hi Everyone...just a real quick post to let you know I had 2 beautiful baby boys on Tuesday 15th, early morning. I was scheduled for a C section on the 21st, but I got up to go to the toilet on Tuesday at 4am and my waters broke just as I got to the bathroom!! I went to the hospital and they didn't ...
