Subject:  Hi !
Wish you a very happy belated birthday !! Good to know that you all had a good time.We also had a wonderful Diwali this year complete with crackers and some good indian food.
Aditi also hardly sleeps during the day ..same here short naps of 20- max 30 mnts.But her night time routine is now more or less set.Goes to bed around 8.30 - 9 but wakes up once or twice for a feed or water.She has a slight cold now and hence wakes up more frequently.
You are lucky to have some domestic help.Here life is difficult . Sometimes I wish I were in India .Its a lot more easier to bring up a child there.One good thing is my inlaws are expected to be here next week.That will be a big help.
DO you have some friend there ? What does Aaryan do these days ?Abhishek has his midterm holidays now.
Take care.

Hi Shivani,
Sorry for this belated reply.Actually Abhishek is not well since last couple of days .So he has been at home which means just no time to spend on the computer.He has a bad throat and an equally bad cough.Its the sudden change in weather which is to be blamed.Its suddenly pretty cold .We are in a place calld Basingstoke which is about 50 miles south of London.
How are Nikita and Aaryan doing ?I feel the standard of education in India is the best.Although we as parents do crib about the work load and the pressure etc its a fact that the strict regimen instills a sense of discipline in the kids which helps them in the long run.Here also its a very relaxed atmosphere in the school but its definitely better than Germany.
Aditi has been doing fine too.
How are you ? We are both from Orissa but after marriage spent most of our working lives in Chennai.
Take care and do write back.
Suva

Subject:  hi!!!!!!!!!!!
how have u been? i've been a little busy the last week since niki had a short break from school.aaryan is doing fine.still wakes up every 2 hrs in the nights,but i guess both he and i have got used to it by now,fortunately for me he goes back to sleep immidiatly after a feed.as far as his milestones are concerned he is going by the book,he is now trying to move around on his tummy,in the bargain ends up going backwards.it sure is fun to watch them grow isn't it.
as for friends here, i do have a couple of them ,and try to keep in touch with them over the phone.
so have ur in-laws come over,i am sure it's going to be a lot better to cope with the kids now.
my e-mail id is shibanishankarathotmail whats yours?maybe i can send u a couple of snaps of the kids.take care until then...love to ur kids!!!!

how are u and your kids doing .hope u had a good time during diwali.we had a good time. had gone out for dinner,since it also happened to be my birthday.
does aditi sleep during the day,lately aaryan refuses to sleep during the day ,he takes short naps of not more than 20 mins.the one major plus point for me here is i have two very good domestic helps,hence i can devote all my time to the kids.
as for work ,i used to run my own business from home before,but not anymore,i am a full time mom now.take care
cheers

Dear Shivani,
Wish you all a very happy Diwali.What are your plans for Diwali ? We are having a party in my husband's office.We are all( esp Abhishek )looking forward to it.I left my job after Abhishek was born and always long to go back to the working life.But then i feel its equally important to spend time with kids when they are small.What about you? Are you working ?Both Abhishek and Aditi are doing great.She enjoys going out but doesn't really fancy meeting strangers.
love to ur kids and have a great Diwali.

Hi Shibani,
Good to see your msg. What are your kids' names ? My son is Abhishek.He is a gem - helps me in whatever way he can and dotes on his little sister(Aditi).We moved from Germany to Uk a couple of months back and that really affected the little one.Like your son she also never had a long stretch of sleep in the night.Till about 4 months I was exclusively breast feeding her but then I had a feeling it wasn't enough and gradually introduced to formula milk..Now I give her a bottle of milk just before her bed time(aound 8.30 - 9).May be that has helped her sleep well.I really don't know but can only guess. I also give her some mashed fruit with rice cereal twice a day.What about you ? Here the health visitor asked me to introduce solids from 4th month ( esp for babies who hv above average weight).Have you started giving any solids to your son?
Managing two kids is definitely more difficult especially during the afternoon when my son is back from school.During the evenings I and my husband take turns to take care of the little one so that one of us is able to give undivided attention to our son.Well life is after all not very easy .Isn't it ?
Lets keep in touch .
Love,
Suva

Hope you had a nice weekend .Nice names..Aaryan is one of my favourites.How is he doing now ? I am sure he'll be fine when he is 6 mnths old.Lots of kids don't take to the bottle immediately.I have just started trying a sipper for Aditi .I have a feeling she doesn't like it much.She is comfortable with the bottle though.She seems to be following in her big brother's footstep as far as milestones are concerned.Like my son she never rolled over but if we make her sit , she can sit for a long time without any support. I hvn't tried giving her soild when we are out .I prefer giving her an extra bottle of milk.
What time does Aaryan go to sleep in the night ? Have you tried giving him soilds just before his bed time ? I am sure he will fall into a good routine very soon.

How is life in Nigeria ? Are the schools good there?Which state of India are you basically from ?
Hope to hear from you soon.
love,
suva

Subject:  hi suva,
how are u doing?and how r ur kids.well...my daughters name is Nikita and my son Aaryan.aaryan has completed 5 months today he was born on the 9th of may.we are based in Nigeria (lagos)and living here for the last 4 years. yes i have started with solids for my son,i give him pureed fruits,rice cereal,and he likes it.the problem i face is he refuses to have the bottle ,so it gets difficult in the nights ,as i have to nurse him everytime he wakes up,also when we go out to spoon feed him gets a little messy...i guess i will have to start with the sipper when he turns 6 mths
what does aditi do now? does she move forward??hope to hear from u
take care

Hi Shibani !

We sure are similar in some ways.I also have 2 kids..the elder one a 6 yr old very active son and a 6 month old equally active daughter.She was troublesome in the begining but now she is got into a good routine.I feel its always more difficult to manage the second child because you have so much less time.Try giving her a nice massage just before bed time..Stick to an evening routine of massage, changing the nappy and the dress and then switching off the lights.I read this somewhere and tried to apply it on my daughter.Believe me it helps. I think all babies wake up atleast once during the night till they are about 8-9 months old .So I guess you still have a long way to go( another 5 months of sleepless night is not less !!!)
Cheers
Suva

Subject:  hello,
how have u been doing??the last few days have been a little rough on me as aaryan has been suffering from a bad cold infection,hence he has not been eating and sleeping well,and has been a little cranky .today he seems a little better.well...he goes to bed at 9 in the night but is up every 2 hrs after that.i do try to give him a cereal feed at around 8 in the night and then breast feed him before he sleeps.
he now rolls over and loves to sleeps on his tummy in the nights.
as for the schools here,i am not really happy about the system of education,we do have an indian school,but nikita attends the british school as it is much closer to my house.
my husband is from bombay and i come from mangalore...which state do u belong to?and r u based in london now?
love to your kids,take care and keep in touch

Hi Shibani,

Welcome aboard the mum's forum. This sure is a wonderful site to share info between us moms. I hv found it to be most useful by sharing notes and using the experience of other moms.

I have a 3 month old son and he too is a fussy sleeper. Does ur baby hv a problem falling asleep or he wakes up too soon? I feel a massage and a bath or a sponge bath really relaxes my baby when he is cranky. U can do it at least 2-3 times a day. Also rock or cuddle ur baby when he is fussing to sleep or sing him a lullaby. All these things really work.
Do try theseand let me know if they work.

Geetika

RE:How to Develop a Sleep Routine for your Newborn
