Worthing. It's salt water as well so safer for babies.
They do baby hour with max 7 babies and play calming music.
It's been around so long even I learnt to swim there as a child lol

Argh I am so hungry all the time! I was determined to lose the last of the baby weight before Kara starts to wean by sticking to 2000kcals a day and therefore not having to 'diet' later. But I just can't stop eating. Am hitting 2,500 most days! Just went shopping and came back with an overpriced pot of instant porridge as I just can't wait for lunchtime to eat. I've never bought one of these in my life, but it just looked so appealing, lol!

M is now 4 months old (where does the time go) and tonight is the first time i feel at my wits end. It has been nearly 8 hours since she slept properly and she has been cluster feeding from 9pm which is when i take her to bed to feed up for the night. She has usually drifted off come 11pm and would do a good 2.5hrs before a feed. I have moved us in to the spare room because when i put her in the basket she cries the house down and my husband has work in the morning. Im gonna try and sleep on the pull out bed with her next to me (its a foam bed thing). Shes not even eating half the time, im just being a pacifier which i didnt use to mind but i am now running on empty and i feel this might start becoming a regular occurance. Ive been trying the gentle parenting route as i do love the cuddles deep down but i now lose my evenings with my husband from 8 when i start getting her ready for bed. Im thinking expressed milk in bottles and a soother might become the only way even though i dont want to. Ive heard they regress at this point though so deep down im hoping its a phase and that my chilled little babe returns soon....

Hey alrm - I feel for you! There is a sort of sleep regression around 4 months which coincides with a huge growth/developmental leap. Rowan had it bad too, just wouldn't sleep at all in her bed. I had to temporarily co sleep with her while partner slept in a different room, that way she would sleep and I could at least sort of snooze while being available for comfort feeding. Every night I'd still try to put her down in her bed though until she was eventually happy to stay there! She's through it now at about 4 1/2 months, so don't worry, there will be better times!

By the way, don't know if you guys have come across the wonder weeks app thing? Tells you when your baby should be hitting bad patches and the things they might be trying to do and how to help them etc. It seems fairly spot on a lot of the time! Just a fun thing maybe, but I find it interesting

Awh Blueclass, she's adorable!

Thanks Yorkslass, I think I just needed to vent somewhere and to people who would have a LO at same age and who would understand. Thankfully it only lasted a couple of nights and she's back to being a bit more like herself. Thinking about it, it could have had something to do with the fact she had had her injections a couple days before (the meningitis jab makes her vomit too - I've never seen so much come out of a tiny little thing! ) And I think she was just out of sorts in general and looking for comfort so I've been feeling like an awful mummy for a few days too since my rant. You are right about milestones - she's now able to roll on to her side and front and then back again and she has also started to babble a lot more and has chosen to communicate in various pitches of blowing raspberries! It's so cute

I have a screenshot of the wonder weeks timeline but not sure if it's worth paying for the app or not...? What's your opinion on it?

How are you ladies in general? Adjusted to being a mum yet? I feel a bit more confident getting out with M now she's a bit older. I was suffering with anxiety for awhile but after talking to DH and HV I am getting much better. We recently finished baby massage and are starting baby yoga next week which should be fun!

Here's a recent picture for you. My MIL knitted the fox cardi and leg warmers after I showed her a picture on Pinterest

I like the app and its cheaper so I didn't mind.

Iv started a bed time routine which was going for ok but summer does not wake up for her bottle. This means she wakes up anywhere between 12-3.30. She didn't wake till 6 when having a bottle. Also 3.30 is becoming regular and then she wakes every 2hrs. Its killing me I'm so tired all the time x

Alrm, she looks so cute! I LOVE the fox outfit - did your MIL get a pattern for it or make it up herself? I do a bit of knitting, would love to try something like that lol
The wonder weeks app, I do find it kind of useful for the tips of helping your child and the reassurance it gives, and that it tells you what to expect. It's very simple, so perhaps not really worth paying for to some, but I like it
As for being a mum, I'm loving it! Especially now she seems to do more interesting things all the time and likes playing. I can get a proper laugh out of her now with 'boo', and she loves to babble away...
Blueclass, I feel for ya there, rowan's never slept more than 4 or 5 hours straight in the night! She tends to go down at 7, but sometimes wakes about an hour later just to do lots of farts and grizzle. She usually wakes then between 10-midnight at which point I bf her, then it's usually 3 for another feed, then 5 or 6. She's then fully awake and grinning at you, but can entertain herself for a while, chattering (which I can't sleep through!). After a while though, the chattering turns into shouting until you take her downstairs... Will be trying her in her own room soon though, so maybe this might help. I'm sure we disturb her in the night, hence all the waking.
