Thought I'd start one of these to see how everyone is getting along!
Matilda is 10 week on wednesday, it has flown in! She is fab and I spend a lot of.my time staring at her, weird thinking I won't be doing any of this again.
She has reflux and is on domperidone and ranitindine. Still sick a lot though and isn't gaining weight very well. She is growing though and is a very happy little baby. Brother and sister love her :-D
Sleep is good, she sleeps sometimes 9-7, others 11-5 not really a pattern but usually a good chunk bar the odd night which is fab. Apart from sleeping on boulders isnt pleasant. Always one though and not both!
Not much else to say really, she likes tummy time and being propped up for a good nosey around. Will try attatch a pic.

CK what a beautiful family you have!!! M is gorgeous!
E is 15 weeks today! where has that time gone! Are we still officially in 4th tri?
She is as good as gold! from 6 weeks she was only waking once a a night and from about 8 weeks she was sleeping through. We give her a bottle at 7ish and she goes to sleep then we wake her up at 10/11 ish to give her a bottle then the sleeps through until 6/7ish. although she currently has a cold so has been waking at 4 again the last couple of nights coughing. I think it could be her 4 month growth spurt too!
She happily has 2 naps a day and when she is awake she is so happy and smiley! you just have to smile at her or say hello and she beams back at you and gives a little giggle!
As everyone keeps telling me, she is petite. She dropped down a percentile recently but by increasing the amount of milk she has a couple of ties a day, it is now constant again.
I am still exclusively expressing. Thought my supply was starting to dry up a couple of weeks ago and it took me a while to get my head round the fact that I would start her on formula and she would soon stop having my milk, it was harder than I thought it would be. But then I discovered my pump had a crack in it! So ive borrowed one of a friend whilst im waiting for replacement part and supply is fine!
We went to look at a nursery last week as i am going to go back to work in June! You may remember that I was doing a maternity cover and the woman who was taking over from me was also pregnant! she goes on leave May and the original lady doesnt go back until Sept so im going to go back those 3 months working 3 days a week and see how that goes!
Anyway, enough chatting, here are some photos!

2 days old...
Hello ladies, lovely to see your beautiful families!
E is 12 weeks on Friday, where has the time gone?! He has silent reflux which the meds have mostly under control, his sleep has gone from ok to bad over the past 2 weeks but he's a joy. He's very smiley and is starting to giggle and loves having a chat.

Awww beautiful pictures!!
Freddie was 15 weeks yesterday, wow how time flies! Hes an absolute angel the majority of the time, so laid back and chilled.generally sleeps 7-5 then 5.30-7.
We're currently under the hospital for his strawberry birthmark which he is due to undergo treatment for soon. It really doesnt bother him in the slightest and would disappear on its own accord eventually but they are concerned about where it is placed and it is starting to push his nostrils out of alignment. He is going to be put on the wonder oral drug propranolol, which is a beta blocker medicine administered three times a day up until he is around 12 months. The results Ive seen so far on strawberry haemangiomas is incredible!
Here's my little dude!:-)

Technically were way out of 4th Tri as O is 17weeks but given he would only have been 13weeks tomorrow if we had made it to due date and you were all my Tri girls I'm crashing in!
CK that so doesn't seem like 10weeks, I can hardly believe it! She is so cute and what a proud brother and sister! Do you think M will look more like A than P?
Mrs Bass E is adorable and I hope you don't mind me saying but doesn't look overly petite in her pics, infact she looks fab. I love the one on the bass (although have to confess I still read it as like the fish!)
Mrs P I love those photos of E! They're brilliant and he's adorable. He looks like such a little boy sitting there!
And Gemini what can I say, he really is so gorgeous. Will his treatment just involve this medication? I don't even remember noticing it in your other pics.
O is doing good, we moved him onto nutramigen about 9 weeks ago now after being diagnosed with CMPI and the difference has been incredible. He also has reflux so takes ranitidine although he didn't get on with the domperidone so we stopped that after just 4 days.
He's full of smiles and laughs away and he is going to be a real talker, he babbles away and shouts all the time! He still suffers from wind but this is genuinely the only time he cries, he can literally be screaming, bring his wind up and then be chatting away! Despite being a wee smudge when he was born he's putting on weight really well and must be around the 14lb mark now.
Here's my wee monkey
Sorry as I know they will come out huge!

Thanks Mrs P! :-) we have such gorgeous babies!
Awww he is gorgeous MDD!
His strawberry didnt start to appear until about 2 weeks after he was born, thats generally when theyll appear. I was absoluted devastated when it started to grow, people used to just stare, still do. It amazes me how some grown adults can be so rude! I have come to terms with it and dont feel like I have to immediately explain what it is as soon as a person looks at him. Its part of who he is and just adds to his quirky character :-)
The medication is amazing, itll take the lumpy part down in as little time as 3 weeks and then it will start to break down the red blood vessels, eventually (hopefully) leaving no trace in years to come. Often it can be unidentified by the time they are 1, using this medication. Whereas usually strawberry marks can be visible up to five if they are left to naturally disappear.
The consultants advise that he will not need anymore treatment other that the oral drug, itll just get rid of it and his nose will re align. Its more the pressure causing it to deform a little. Im just glad that hes still so little and we can get on top of it before hes too old to not like taking medicine! :-)
