This is a new thread for the lovely folks from our Jan 15 Birth Club, who have now all given birth to an equally lovely baby (hurrah!) and we reckon they deserve a nice new shiny thread to chat on.
If you've just had a baby (born this Jan), do please feel free to post and join in. They're a nice, friendly lot!

Oooh what a lovely new thread!
ive not heard of that sheep what is it? We have a little bear that glows purple and makes the sounds of the ocean. Grace loves it and I sleep through it lol!
08/02/2015 at 18:17
It's a similar thing, plays heartbeats etc and glows red! When your milk comes in there is no mistaking it Essie!!

So Grace slept from 11.30pm til 7.30am this morning!!! I woke up at 4am just to check she was ok as she hadn't woke me lol! She only got up at 7.30 this morning coz I woke her as we have a hospital appointment to get to! I don't no if I should be worried or not? But she seems herself and not unwell.
09/02/2015 at 13:00
You lucky lucky thing, as long as she is feeding well and seems happy etc don't wake her if I was you. My 1st baby did that and I didnt look back just counted my lucky stars lol...

Are you supposed to let them sleep as long this small? the midwife told me the other day don't let Lucas go any longer than 6 hours without a feed because I was waking him every fees
09/02/2015 at 14:23
I think if they constantly go for a long time between feeds there is a risk they can become jaundice. Grace wakes every 3-4 hours during the day so last night was an exception. Although I'm hoping she will do the same tonight haha! I was worried this morning as she was still so sleepy. I got them to take her temperature while we were at the hospital and it was fine so she's not unwell. She is still feeding ok and they said that's a good sign. It appears I just have a very lazy baby!

Lucky u. I'm almost scared to comment on Lucas through the night. He only wakes for a feed and goes straight back down
09/02/2015 at 19:28
You lucky ladies, Chloe wakes every 11/2-2hrs for a feed! Thankfully she is a quick feeder so we are asleep again within 10mins.
09/02/2015 at 20:17
Holly feeds every 2 hours too thehoads - but is breast fed so that could be the difference, is Chloe? All worth it today though she gas gone from 7lb0.5 to 8lb 9 in two weeks so feeling quite chuffed
09/02/2015 at 20:56
Sounds like you've got gold top there! Yep Chloe is breast fed too, hope to get her weighed on Thursday curious to see how much she weighs as she looks huge now!
10/02/2015 at 09:41
I heard breast fed babies want to feed more often so that's probably why. Wish grace was a quick eater it can take up to an hour at night sometimes!
10/02/2015 at 12:37
Do any of your little ones eat their hands? Our boy constantly does it and he's biting down on them and when we remove them they go straight back up. He's so strong too So it's a fight to get them out.
10/02/2015 at 16:32
Yes Grace does and it's a cue that they are hungry essie. She stops as soon as she's fed lol
11/02/2015 at 00:24
He doesn't. In fact earlier when his glove was off he was going crazy for it as he looks sooking on it so I held his hand and he actually tried to pull himself towards it and threw a wobbler because he couldn't get it - oops!
Patiently sitting watching Lucas hoping he wakes soon so we can get to bed. We've got a deal where we alternate who does the first feed and tonight it's daddy's turn so all going well I won't be required until 8/9
