How much milk?

Posted: 11/07/2011 at 16:36
Erin has 3 7oz bottles a day,but doesn't always drink the full bottle. I think you should be fine as long as you keep giving her yogurt / cheese etc. x

Time for a picture thread?

Ah they're so cute. Not sure how to add pics of Erin but have some on fb


Anyone know why my 7 month old might be refusing solids now?

Thanks Annabelle23,

After a bit of a struggle to begin with, she did wolf down her dinner and a yoghurt, so hopefully we're back on track. I'll bear in mind swapping bottle / solid feed if she starts refusing again.

Thanks for replies.

Lunchtime was better today. I had given her a breastfeed at 11.30am and gave her lunch at 1pm, so didn't quite make the two hour gap. Anyway she wasn't sure a first but then seemed happy to eat if her hand was in her mouth at the same time! A bit messy but she ate it all which I was pleased about. I then pushed my luck by trying her with avocado and banana but she just grabbed it off her spoon and squished in her fingers for a bit. She did put her hand to her mouth but started spitting it out.

Roll on dinner!

Thanks for the reply, perhaps she is getting fuller from the bottles. I'll try and give her bottles earlier than I have been and see if it makes a difference.

She had a cold which lasted a couple of weeks but she is over it now and it didn't seem to affect her feeding.

Thanks again x

Help, Erin was 7 months old yesterday and up until this week was happily eating 3 pureed meals a day. The only thing that she previously refused was carrot but I disguised it with apple and parsnip and she took it.

This week though she has decided not to eat anything that I have made, but will eat porridge for breakfast, and has had a couple of Ella's kitchen pouches and yoghurts.

Does anyone have any idea why she could just suddenly stopped liking her food? I've tried all her favourites to no avail. Today she has only eaten her porridge and I feel like I've been trying to force feed her all day! She keeps her mouth firmly closed and keeps blowing raspberries. At lunch I thought that she might just not be hungry so expected her to take something at dinner, but she didn't have anything, just refused food for 20 mins.

In addition, I'm also in the process of stopping breastfeeding and moving to bottles, and have upped to 3 bottles this week. 1 btl when she wakes, breast feed @ 11.50am (lunch at 1pm) , btl at 4pm (dinner at 5pm). She'll have a bottle before bed and breastfeed when she wakes in the night. Bottles are 7oz, should I try reducing this?

Could she just not be hungry or could it be something like teething? She doesn't have any teeth through yet and I can't really see any sign of anything coming.


Being an "August baby"

Posted: 13/02/2011 at 17:28
The school year in Scotland starts in August so the September thing isn't an issue for us. As long as the child is 5 between 1st March and the end of Feb of the following year,then they are in the class. so perhaps February babies are 'affected'. I certainly don't remember a group of incredibly intelligent classmates who were all born in the same month!

Holidays 2011

We were hoping to get a week abroad somewhere, however I reckon that we'll end up visiting family for our hols. I am prepared to take Erin on a plane but not for too long. It's the thought of everything that we would need to bring for her that puts me off though.

nap frequency

I've become a bit obsessive about how much Erin sleeps during the day. She will go down in her cot fairly easily now, I used to have to walk about with her for 40mins to get 10mins sleep.

Today she slept for an hour in the morning, then for about 40 mins during a walk in the afternoon (she woke up for a while in between) and then slept for another half an hour at about 5.30pm. She went to bed at 8pm and went down without too much fuss.

My problem is that I just don't know how much sleep she is meant to have so I worry that she isn't getting enough. I take her for a walk everyday and I have to make them longer and longer as it takes her longer to drop off, she's too nosey! It is good exercise though as June09_Bride says...

Hi Ladies - Can I Vent?

Posted: 31/01/2011 at 17:13
Faithie I'm so sorry that you've had a horrible night, after getting out for some much needed 'me time'. I don't have much advice but just want to give you a hug ( and little Jason after being so upset too). Also for everything you've been through in the past, it must have been awful for you.

Reading this it does seem to me that you've made your mind up about leaving. Are you past the stage where you could talk about it and try to get your oh more involved, make him see what he's missing out? I know you've posted before about your husband's other commitments and how it affects you as a family, is he still working as many hours?

I don't know about the passport but surely if he already had a UK passport he wouldn't be able to get another one? Maybe you could go ahead and get him a UK passport? Perhaps you could speak to citizen's advice about the legal side of everything?

Sorry I am not much help. You have to do what is best for you and your little one. x
