Laura Ward - Sunday, 7 December Message to all: This message is not intended for any one person, but a general statement to all members of the site. After hearing what you all think in regards to posting photos on the forums, we have modified the rules and ask that everyone familiarize yourself so that the site continues to remain friendly for everyone, including new members. In an effort to be respectful of all members of the site, we ask that members do not post more than ONE photo or video per person in the weekly, monthly and information forums. Your ONE picture should be small in size as well. Any large photos will be deleted. You are welcome to post as many pictures as you would like in the photo books, which were created for the purpose of sharing and viewing photos. You may also post as many blogs as you would like with photos in them. We understand that many members enjoy posting and viewing pictures on the forums, but this is not where they belong. We must keep the pictures on the boards to a minimum so that the written comments can continued to be written and read. Otherwise, the numerous amounts of large pictures squash the messages and they become missed. We ask that this modification be respected, therefore any member that continues to post numerous pictures a day will be deleted from the site. Thank you all for helping us keep the site friendly and welcoming for all members.
Dirk - Friday, 5 December Message to all: In the last 2 years you all posted 1.1 million photos to the site, and that needs a little maintenance. We are currently renaming all photos from the personal photobooks in order to speed up the site. Some, or all your photos may not show while we are working on the photobooks. You don't have to do anything. We hope to have all photos sorted in about 24 hours from now. You can upload new photos to your photobook while the computer is working on your other photos. Thanks for reading.
zoeluv - Saturday, 22 November Thanks so much for your encouragement! I am hopeful since she no longer screams when I try to give her the bottle, at least she is playing with it now so hopefully the next step is actually drinking out of it! Thanks!
mandarae - Wednesday, 19 November Wowsa lady~ no kidding your life has been in turmoil! Sorry to hear about your DH stepfather and hope he is doing better. SO sh*tty about your poor dog, I know my son would be devastated if something happened to ours. Have you gotten moved and settled in yet??
izziebo - Sunday, 16 November they said they are normal but coz iv been waiting so long to hear when her ultrasound is im convinced somethings going to go wrong! its so irritating waiting around
they found it at the hospital hen she was in for vomiting blood and no one bothered refering her! and thenat her 6 week check (when she was 10 weeks old stupid health visitors losing her notes) they said tehy were gog to refer her but we still havent heard anything from it:(
its not fair! lol
i just worry shes gonna be ill xxx
mandarae - Thursday, 13 November Thank you! It is totally the best! We did make it through the whole day today with no bottles - I am so stoked! (also pretty tired) I only got them to tandum nurse 2 times today, other than that, they wanted to eat at separate times.. but when I compare that to NOT pumping or washing bottles or pump parts today, I think I had it pretty easy! Much better to cuddle babies than cleaning up stuff all day! How have you been?

Rosieb - Saturday, 1 November At the moment i have no one helping me. But i'm moving to my mom's so she'll b there to help. She's gr8 with the kids and they adore her. So once i'm there i hope things will b easier for me.
Rosieb - Friday, 31 October When did things start getting easier for u? It feels to me like it never will. Plus i'm on the verge of moving in the next week to come and becoming a single mom. I dont know how i manage. But every night i thank god that my children and i survived another day.
Rosieb - Monday, 27 October My husband and i dont sleep in the same bed. So i'm not worried he might roll onto gary. And since baby constantly nurses at night its easier for me to have him in my arms. What i do when he wakes up is stick my nipple back into his mouth and we both go back to sleep. Just sometimes he has a wind then i have to fully wake up to tend to him.
So yr still breastfeeding yr little girl? How did u manage to survive?
Rosieb - Sunday, 26 October Gary's sleeping place is in my bed. I dont want him anywhere else. I'm not one for getting up at night so its easier for me having him right by me. He sleeps on his own when he had a bottle of formula but not when i've breastfed him. I'd love a swing to put him in but i'm not able to get one. So how's things going with u and yr baby?
michelles - Saturday, 25 October thanks,i was getting worried that maybe i was doing something wrong.
debdaz85 - Thursday, 23 October fingers and toes crosses that mine does the same as yours....a funny friend of mine suggests i should stand on my head lol
Jamiee - Monday, 20 October Thanks so much. Its just frustrating because I feel like I just cant keep him happy. Everytime I think Ill get a break because hes had enough he just wants more! I dont mind the fact that I have to feed him all the time, I just feel so awful that I cant seem to meet his needs. I guess every new mom goes through that.
mandarae - Monday, 20 October I thank you! I am getting better ;o) less emotional I guess. Just is really hard leaving the girls there everynight... oh well, soon enough I suppose!!!!! Then I will be begging the nurses to take em back, for JUST ONE NIGHT!! haha - I, am kidding, of course! Hope you have a great week!!
Rosieb - Wednesday, 15 October He loves being swaddled while sleeping but its getting too hot here to do that much. He sleeps best in my arms. Or laying on my chest. One way or another i'll need to get him to sleep on his own. Dont know how.
mandarae - Tuesday, 14 October Thank you! Sorry - I am slow with getting online! Life has been pretty hectic running back and forth to the hospital each day. Still have no "time frame" as to when they get to come home, but hopefully soon! Breanne was moved from her isolette to a crib today and she just needs to feed each feeding through a bottle for another couple days and then she can come home. Karissa had a minor set back and will probably be staying longer than her sister. They thought she might have had a bowel infection, but none (thank god) there was blood in her stools so she is no longer feeding until Saturday, only IV for my baby (poor thing) but at least it isn't something serious!
Hope all is well with you!!!
stcy2113 - Saturday, 11 October I'm so glad its getting better for u, me too. I am waiting to go part time until the new year so we can ave extra money for xmas, but I sill miss her all day, I wish I could visit her but I live to far away. Have a great weekend!
