Schema

MY LO likes doing similar things - she lines up cards, makes arrangements of her current favourite toys and collects little things. Sometimes I wonder whether my LO will get OCD because she does like things to be positioned just-so, but then I thought that these are perfect traits for a would-be engineer! A schema is a way of playing and manipulating objects, in order to make sense of the world. It's not good or bad, simply how they figure what can be done with things...its learning through play...

Hi everyone, just popping on to say as it's been a while. I'm keeping up with reading the chat though. I can't see any further back, so this'll be a short one. Buzzbee - R was a monkey for napping. I struggled lots, but kept on trying. Rocky - congrats to your DP on her pregnancy and new job. Hope Edie is better. Liz - My R is a bit fussy with her food. And she has picked up a really annoying habit too (from nursery, I expect) She goes "bleurgh, yukky" and sticking her tongue out at everything s...

12 week old hates her car seat!!!

Could you try putting her in the seat when you're in the house but not planning on going out in the car. Just try a few minutes at a time when you know she is in a good mood, and may not cry so easily. If you take her out while she is still not crying, then it might begin to break some sort of association that she may have going on?

Amy - welcome, lovely to see you here Little Scarlett sounds full of fun! Rocky - R has always had a short attention span at the dinner table. It increased slowly, but we were well used to having a ten minute window to get food down her at Edie's age. It has increased, but did so very slowly. And like Liz said, R will eat in front of the TV. For supper, I'll let her watch some Peppa Pig with a plate of toast and she just gazes at the screen and forgets about resisting food lol! Will be making a ...

NH - I was chatting to the nursery staff about how R won't say when she needs to poo. She listedLOADS of problems kids poops and said that some kids wint go at all while they're there.

NH - at L's loo cubicle questions! Poo issues...hmmm, that sounds like a tough one. R calls everything wee, and I don't think she recognises it in time or knows how to hold on...for either. Cleaning up a poo accident from clothes and child is far worse than changing a pooey nappy. Re night time dryness - I wonder about that dry for three nights "rule" you mention. It's not as if they know exactly what they're doing when they're sleeping, so the conscious action of stopping herself may not be pos...

Sorry AG, can't help with naps as the only way I can get R to sleep is in the car. I still have to plan my journeys around her nap time. She'll lay down on a bed and go to sleep a treat in nursery, but has to be absolutely shattered (and therefore super grumpy) to sleep on the bed at home. When her back molars were coming through, she had the worst acidic nappies ever and the nappy rash took ages to clear. So they caused a lot of trouble. I hope that N's unsettledness is just a temporary thing t...

Hi all, yes it is very quiet on here. I'm mad busy, so I reckon y'all are too. Nice to catch up on Facebook though. Rocky, you're not on there are you? If you reconsider or find time (I know! that's a rare thing!) it'd be good to see you there. Happy Birthday Edie. Can't believe that has gone so quickly! Sorry to hear that your DP is having a bad time at work. Can she look for something else? Buzzbee and Elizmac - congratulations on the arrival of your little ladies xxx I'm a bit envious, I must...

Elizmac - Ross is up to climbing tricks eh? Hope this isn't early labour and just a caffeine OD. I really felt for you (and Buzzbee) when the weather was hot. I remember being being heavily pregnant during a hot spell a couple of years ago and I swear I felt about 75 - huffing and puffing, plodding with swollen ankles desperately trying to keep cool! My brother was until recently using a tall dog gate as a baby / toddler gate. Worked a treat and looked no different to a baby gate! Buzzbee - can'...

Hello all, sorry for not posting, life is as hectic as ever and I know you all know what I mean! Just bobbed on to say to NH - R is anxious about the potty too. She won't sit on it to either wee or poo. It's as if she has to be standing to wee or poo. I try to get her to sit down when I can see her trying to go but she hates it and fights like mad to avoid sitting down (gotten a bit messy once or twice ... ewwww!) She has got bladder control (she can stop and start weeing) and asks to have her n...

Just quick one for Buzzbee - R definitely went through a stage of separation anxiety. It coincided with moving house and starting a new nursery. Made it even worse because her dad was dropping her off, and she is daddy's girl (.i.e doesn't mind me leaving her!) Anyhow, I hope its a phase for him. Its a hard one for you all xxx

Buzzbee - Drop my mum a message on her Facebook page when you've got your clothes together, she'll let you know her address so you can send them to her. I think her waiting list is pretty short at the moment. She hasn't started her summer fairs yet. When R wakes at night, she is just crying like "waaah!" rather than saying mummy or daddy. And she stands up aswell. I think she does this out of habit though, and am not sure that she is fully awake when she is doing it. I go in, give her a pat and ...

Buzzbee - I hope you're feeling OK. sorrry to hear that most of your holiday was spent being on pins. It really does change how you choose places now, doesn't it, I mean, trying to find baby and toddler friendly places. We went to a holiday park recently, over Easter, and although it wasn't my cup of tea, there was loads for kids. There were swimming pools and kids disco's in the evenings. R loved the disco - she just ran around the dance floor at first. Then she started copying the other kids d...

Rocky - Aww, your house falling through, that's awful. What a disapppointment I hope you get something sorted out. Anna - so pleased that you like the memory blanket. May I ask a favour please? It'd be lovely if you could help my mum spread the word by taking a picture of your blanket and posting it on your Facebook page, if you wouldn't mind please? Thank you x Booboo and buzzbee - I hope you enjoy your holidays! Buzzbee - it sounds like you're having sleep problems with N too. R too (I'll go i...

I've just bobbed on to say that we're still having sleep problems here. Sounds quite similar to everyone else's really! R wakes after about 4 - 6 hours. One of us goes in an either puts her down or camps on the spare bed in her room, and she sleeps fine if we're there. We alternate nights as we're both working full time and need to be able to think at work. Has the clock change made any difference to anyone? R has been a bit difficult to get to sleep at night recently. I've had to go in and lie ...

Rocky - R jumped out of my arms trying to get to a floating toy, so armbands or float vest is a must if you think that H might be off somewhere. And H might like floating in deeper water too. R loves it, and kicks her legs. She can spin herself round in circles. She didn't seem to kick her legs to order at the swimming lessons I used to take her to, but did it naturally when she needed to and was floating there. If H gets a mouthful of water, or a quick dunking, then he might have a splutter and...

Embryo Transefer....One or Two?

Hi Michelle. Your numbers sound exactly like mine! I had 6 eggs collected and two embies made it to day 3. I had both embies put back, and had one baby. I see from your other posts that you had both put back, so good luck for the 2WW.

Trolleys were mentioned a while ago and I wanted to share what I have to do with R to get her around the supermarket. She won't sit in the seats so I put her in the main big bit with the rest of the shopping. She stands up, wobbles around but I keep hold of her arms, and she soon learns that sitting is safer. I get some fresh bread so I can tear bits off and feed it to her on the way round. Sometimes she wants packets opened, but I keep handing her different things. She is so eaily distracted th...
