The new rolling ILX parenting thread, since the other one was getting unwieldy

Old thread here. This is the new thread for discussing parenting, from pregnancy to the point at which you finally throw up your hands and disown the little buggers (just kidding). Lots of pictures, please!

Bit of a shame the other thread has been locked - it's a real repository of memories, anecdotes, banter and pictures as some of us fumble our way through the first few months of parenting. Now it's just going to disappear from the new answers page. I don't really understand the decision.

Michael Jones (MichaelJ), Tuesday, 6 February 2007 17:03 (fourteen years ago) link

bookmark it?

emsk ( emsk), Tuesday, 6 February 2007 17:04 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah, I could, but I liked the fact that it was an ongoing thing. There's no such thing as an overlong thread if you're set up to see only the most recent messages.

But I guess it's a bit daunting to new ILX parents who've never read it before, so fair enough perhaps.

Michael Jones (MichaelJ), Tuesday, 6 February 2007 17:08 (fourteen years ago) link

Well, there is a link at the top of this thread...

schwantz (schwantz), Tuesday, 6 February 2007 17:11 (fourteen years ago) link

also if it continues the way it's been going there'll always be a rolling parenting thread on the new answers page, and the previous one will always be linked at the beginning of the newest one.

Oh I am thankful for this new thread, the birth of my second daughter has swept me off the web for a longer period than I had thought, and since I've been able to be online again I've never had enough time to read everything I had missed before posting myself, so now it feels less like cheating if i do, if you know what I mean.
So, my second little baby lady was born last September 19th, Lea and thankfully she was fine and healthy, even though she's had some minor health problems in the first 2 months. Older (23 months "older"...) Sara has been great about the arrival of her sister, even though she has recently started a little aggressivity thing with her old best friend which I am afraid may be due to some gelosy and insecurity. Anyway, Lea is different from Sara, but she screams just as much and even though she is almost 5 months now she still doesn't sleep all night long and still spends many hours getting nervous. And above all I am much more tired and less patient so it is a very demanding period. Particularly so also because we have moved out in the meanwhile, restored a new apartment and spent 2 months at my mom's place and we have just moved in the new place. so well, now I only need to learn how to publish pictures on the web, so that I can show off a little, and let you see how beautiful and funny my 2 lady babies are.

So as you know I'm in Japan with Ophelia. Despite the projectile vomiting she's been such an easy girl! I was worried she wouldn't sleep, but she does. She does sleep with me (on a blanket next to my futon. No, she could very easily sleep with me but she crawls on the ground so I put a blanket next to the futon.) I was worried she wouldn't like the baby food. She does. Sort of. But fucking LOVES Japanese (adult) food! Soy? Yep. Steamed rice? Yep. Everything. Well almost. Isn't that GREBT? I'm worried about returning but heck it's just vomit! Who teh hell cares? Her stool was a bit *odd* the first days after landing but then it was *peachy* fine. I recommend traveling with yr kid! :-)

Also, travel to Japan with your baby: EVERYONE is in love with Ophelia! I mean, on the streets, in restaurants,... They keep saying:"She looks like a doll!"

Nu ILX, Nu Alice!

Ten weeks old today. Not sure at what point she became a slightly cross N4zi...

Archel, Thursday, 22 February 2007 10:39 (fourteen years ago) link

Nu-ILX, nu-labour (maybe). Since this morning I have been having what I am really, really hoping are early contractions - like Braxton Hicks but with added backache and what feels like period cramping. Happening every 15 mins or so, but no show or waters breaking. I know this could be a false alarm - or go on for days before proper labour establishes - but still, fingers crossed! (If anyone can confirm this is what the start of their labour felt like, you'd make my day...)

Meg Busset, Thursday, 22 February 2007 14:57 (fourteen years ago) link

YAY! fingers crossed this is it for you! Hope you get a show soon, so you know that things are really kicking in

Vicky, Thursday, 22 February 2007 14:59 (fourteen years ago) link

Yes Meg that was roughly what the beginning of labour was like for me - a few hours after I'd been induced. I think I had a show after another couple of hours of that - then really strong contractions shortly after and a baby four hours later! Fingers crossed!

Archel, Thursday, 22 February 2007 15:12 (fourteen years ago) link

ooh good luck! mine started like that, faded away, and then I took a nap and my water broke when I got up!

teeny, Thursday, 22 February 2007 15:19 (fourteen years ago) link

What teeny said! Hopefully you'll drop the baby soon! I know how crap you can feel those last days/weeks. Shit, yes, I remember, ARGH! I'm (hopefully!) go through this again at the end of the year. The whole prospect of a second child scares me a little. Especially since I can't find a daycare (unless I travel a gazillion miles). I contacted the one in my street and they have free space from april. Shit. On top of that our employee is also pregnant! Double shit. :-)

nathalie, Thursday, 22 February 2007 15:22 (fourteen years ago) link

Ian has his second stomach flu in the past month, and so does mom. apparently it's an airborne virus that is highly contagious and wrecking havoc all over california (or so someone said they heard). vomiting, the whole bit. AWFUL. somehow i've managed not to get it either time, but I have had a horrible cold all week, so we are a house full of incredibly sick people now, and can't seem to get anyone to come over to take care of him for the day while we sleep. it's times like this I wish we had a nanny. we're losing our minds.

akm, Thursday, 22 February 2007 17:35 (fourteen years ago) link

nath, do you mean they won't have time until april? are you thinking of putting ophelia in daycare when the new baby arrives?

Ms Misery, Thursday, 22 February 2007 17:39 (fourteen years ago) link

Good luck Meg - that sounds like it could be the beginning of labor!

akm, it is horrible to have sick kids, but even worse when you are sick, too. Hang in there... I wish I had good advice for that situation, but all I can say is that if you have a family member or friend who offers to help (or who you can beg for help), that is what you should do. Otherwise you just have to soldier through it. It's the worst.

Sara R-C, Thursday, 22 February 2007 17:40 (fourteen years ago) link

Yay Meg! That's what it felt like. Have you had any mucousy discharge (cervical plug)?

By the way, when my water broke, I didn't know that it did. I knew I was having contractions, but I thought the contractions were making me pee myself a little, cuz instead of one big whoosh, I just got a little tear at the top of the sac. The dr. had said water breaking would create a flood, so I didn't expect just trickling and figured it was a bladder control thing. I waited too long to go to the hospital, and my uterus got infected (high fever). Sorry for scary stories now. Everything turned out just fine.

I'm sure you'll be fine. Have someone come post news here!

Maria :D, Thursday, 22 February 2007 18:02 (fourteen years ago) link

And Alice looks so strong and determined!

Maria :D, Thursday, 22 February 2007 18:03 (fourteen years ago) link

that's funny maria (er except for the infection bit)--they told *me* "oh it's never a big flood like it is on TV, and it's really unlikely that it'll break before you go to the hospital anyway" etc. UH.

akm, I and the boy had the stomach flu too--it went coast to coast. Mine passed within 24 hours though, and I can't imagine getting it twice, you poor things! It does make a baby who wakes up in the middle of the night seem like a cakewalk in comparison, though, so just imagine the good times ahead!

teeny, Thursday, 22 February 2007 18:34 (fourteen years ago) link

Alice IS very strong, and very active. She's always trying to fling herself off into the void from my or her dad's grip, or trying to climb up us. I think she'll be crawling early...

My waters didn't break as such either, in fact I never noticed them going at all.

Here's hoping we DON'T hear from Meg today ;)

Archel, Friday, 23 February 2007 08:02 (fourteen years ago) link

nath, do you mean they won't have time until april? are you thinking of putting ophelia in daycare when the new baby arrives?

No, the daycare, which is in the same street as our shop, doesn't have any place available until April. This is not good news. But since the busiest season (hopefully!) starts at the end of March, it's better than no place at all. And they put me (or rather the baby) on the waiting list and we do get priority because Ophelia will go this year. On top of that our salesperson is most probably pregnant and will deliver at the same time. This could be seen as GREBT, and it is, but on the other hand it's not good since she won't be available when we (or rather I) really need her in the shop. *sigh*

Hopefully Meg delivers! YAY for delivering babies. :-) My water had to be broken. Felt really fun, even though I know that sounds a bit weird. :-)

nathalie, Friday, 23 February 2007 08:13 (fourteen years ago) link

It WAS labour! H0wie arrived at 8.38am on Saturday after 48 hours of back labour, which ended in a dash to the labour ward for an epidural and ventouse delivery. More details when I have more time... but I am very happy :)

ava and mike are on the train to go see his mum right now, I miss her already! I'm not sure she realises that unlike the test run last weekend on the train, she's not coming home tonight. we haven't spent a night apart since I was in the hospital having lulu! lulu is of course loving life, chirping like a happy bird and playing with her toys unhindered and with a marked lack of crash-tackling.

craft ho, Saturday, 3 November 2007 10:11 (thirteen years ago) link

When did she arrive, Nath? 31/10?

Yep. I arrived in the hospital around 7:30 am. At 1:10 I went into the delivery room and by 1:20 I had pushed her into this big cold crowded world. :-) My OBGYN was on his way but too late. The assistant said to the midwives, who wanted to wait till his arrival:"I can do this, y'know! PUSH!" Funny really, cause I already had to push on the bed and then in between contractions I was quickly put on the table. I was so out of it, I was apparently trying to get on the table even though the bed was like half a meter away. My husband was saying:"WAIT! Don't fall in between!!! Be careful!" I was srsly tripping a bit. :-)

I have TWO kids, people, this is srsly positively freaking me out! :-)

Oh yes, let's do a debate on pacifiers. Tips, hints, opinions are MORE than welcome. Ophelia didn't like it, she sucked her thumb but a few months ago she discovered the pacifiers (thanks to the crèche). Now I really want Elisabeth to NOT discover her thumb. The midwives are vehemently against introducing pacifiers this early on as they can mix up the pacifier and breast. (Sucking a nipple is harder and different than sucking on a pacifier for example.) But she's already noticed she has a thumb so I really want to avoid that.

How 'bout ILX Parenting 3: Back In (Potty) Training?

I love this title!

nathalie, Monday, 5 November 2007 13:00 (thirteen years ago) link

Nath, I think it's really hard to persuade a newborn not to suck their thumb if they really want to.

Aidan didn't suck his thumb from birth (he's discovered it now, but only when his dummy falls out and he still hasn't really got the hang of it) and we didn't give him a dummy until he was about three weeks old. I wasn't going to use one, but got sick of being a human dummy so decided to throw my unrealistic principles out the window. At three weeks it didn't make a jot of difference to the breast feeding for us.

I know quite a few people who have given their babies dummies earlier than this and not had any problems - one of my best friends gave her daughter a dummy when they were still in the hospital, much to the disgust of the midwives, and she successfully breastfed for a year.

Here's an anti-pacifier and breastfeeding article though, from Kellymom, which does have some fantastic advice for breastfeeding mothers what should I know about giving my breastfed baby a pacifier

Vicky, Monday, 5 November 2007 14:11 (thirteen years ago) link

nathalie, great pictures of your gals. that's a superfine moment of sisterly love to look back on, awww.

ava got hooked on the dummy relatively late. she used to suck on our pinky fingers as a newborn and never was much of a thumb-sucker. but when she started howling on a regular basis at night, we tried the dummy again and it worked a charm, hurrah! it worked too well - heaven forbid I'd be out shopping and without a dummy if she needed to sleep, it would cause a total meltdown. recently we decided she had to kick the dummy habit, mainly because she'd come to bed with us in the middle of the night, get under the covers and then start bellowing for her dummy. if I I couldn't find one withing reaching distance I'd mumble, "you left it in your bed, just go get it." "no, mummy, YOU GET IT!" the 3am battle of wills and the eventual trek to the next room to root around for it in her covers was causing too much sleepus interruptus. I'd wake up cranky and unable to cope every morning, every little thing would wind me up.

so not long ago we told ava that the dummy fairy was going to come that weekend, and if she left them all in a bag under her pillow the dummy fairy would bring her a present. she left her bed and crawled in with us at 3am as per usual, we put the bag o' dummies under her pillow and the next morning she had a brand new set of flannel peppa pig jammies. everybody was a winner! it really surprised me how absolutely okay she was with this arrangement. it probably helps that lulu hasn't taken to the dummy, so ava's not been reminded of them.

so that's my tip for getting the babe off the pacifier when the time comes. as far as thumb-sucking goes, I don't personally have a problem with it. but I'm a kind of keep-the-peace parent. I'd rather have lulu suck her thumb than start screeching in the middle of the night when she wakes up, because we don't live in a detached house and it's not just our sleep being disrupted if the girls are screaming like they've been branded. I reckon if lulu starts sucking her thumb she probably won't still be sucking it when she's in high school.

this is the same reasoning by which we decided ava could come to bed with us if she woke up in the night even though my fave midwife said basically "mary mother of god don't do it, you'll never get her out of your bed ever". but crying it out didn't work for us, what can you do? now that we're keeping the peace, everybody's sleeping more and I really feel like I'm a better, happier parent during those oft-demanding daytime hours.

midwife sue may have the last laugh when ava's 18 and still sleeping with us and lulu's wearing braces on her teeth from 16 years of sucking her thumb but for now we're going with it!

craft ho, Monday, 5 November 2007 14:35 (thirteen years ago) link

that pic of O and E - OMG!!! Breaks heart.

Beats is a bedtime thumbsucker. I was so pro pacifier but she just never liked them so we gave up offering.

My niece was a pacifier kid and so sneaky with it. They tried to phase them out by just taking obne away at a time but the problem was she would appear with another one only a few minutes later. Apparently she had them hidden all over the house. In the end they took her to NYC at xmas with all of her pacificers and told her that she should give them to santa so he could give them out to new babies who needed them on his christmas eve present route. So they went to macy's and did just that.

Ive also heard of people tying them to balloons and getting the kid to let the balloon go. symbolic gesture, i guess.
