    Oscar is a very sucky baby. He was a fairly good sleeper, but things have changed for the worse this week. He wakes up so many times in the night..... sucking his hands like mad. He has decided that a dummy won't do.... he wants his thumb, but HE CAN'T FIND IT YET!!!! :?
    After struggling for 10 minutes, he gives in and cries.... booby always works. He doesn't even suck whole-heartatly.... just nibbles.
    I'm exhausted... when will my little plumb find his thumb????? :(

    Desperately seeking "soothing" advice! :D :D

    Have you tried different types of dummies? Alex won't entertain the flat ones or the orthodontic ones, but loves the 'cherry' teat ones.

    Hello ladies, my Ruby does exactly the same she keep trying to find her thumb but in turn then either sticks a finger up her nose or in her eye!!! She did find it once but it lasted all of 3 seconds. Ive tried with all the different sorts of dummies but she always spits them out.

    Having said all that we've now found out that she is in fact teething. Shes got two coming through up the top, so shes dribbling lots and desperately hunts for something to chew on. Cant believe shes got them coming through already as shes only 2 months and my son didnt get teeth till he was at least 11 months. Ah well they say they are all different. Its really quite funny coz all she seems to enjoy rubbing her gums on is my hubby's knuckles!!!!

    Seren has been doing the chewing fist thing. She is always grizzly and I also give her the booby. She won't have her dummy, if we put it in her mouth she retches! I just want her off my boob :(

    My boobies are "kah-put"... If I don't take Oscar out in his pram or drive somewhere, he's hanging off my boobs! People are starting to say "Is he feeding AGAIN?"
    I haven't had a rest all week and ofcourse, no DH at home to hand him to. :( I'm feeling really flat about all this. Boobies and I are not getting the chance to recharge our batteries.
    Oscar also dribbling for Africa - could be pegs - can't see or feel anything. I just think it's down to comfort..... suck, suck, suck, suck, suck......... aaaarrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh :?

    Turning into a pumpkin soon.....

    Ah bless ya, Ruby seems to be constantly wanting boob all the time but when I give in (or when I cant take the whinging no more) she starts to suck and then within seconds she throws up everywhere. Apparently she might have reflux problem got to wait for tests so not looking forward to those.
    Think by the time I get to 60 Ill have those kind of boobs that you can tuck into your knickers!!!!!

    Tom is the same with his thumb!!! He tries to put it in his mouth,manages for 5 seconds but then it drops off and he gets frustrated so starts to cry!!!. In the mean time he scratches all his face, he has got cuts as if he shaved himself lol

    hopefully he will learn soon how to keep his finger in his mouth because that does disturbe him for settling down. Mind you sometimes he puts the whole hand in his mouth, at least he knows he is having something lol

    I'll be investing in "scaffholding" after finishing breastfeeding. :D
    However, after complaining to a friend about size of boobies, she old me I looked a lovely mummy with boobies full of goodness. I felt better hearing that!
    So, cheers everyone - here's to the "good white stuff" and floppy boobs!! :D
