wingey 1 year old

Mate, my little man is such a moaner too!!!! he's a lot older than yours at 20months now (where did that go) but he really does moan, whine and cry over everything, if he knocks himself or falls a small bit, its a trauma of untold proportions, if he wants his drink then he'll winge rather than get it and god help me if I'm not on hand to help him walk with just the mere touch of a finger (he WILL walk one day lol) and yes its more noticable when we're out and about as at home i just try to ignor...

Running with a pram(!)

What a great thread. I've been running since new year and am loving it, am up to 10k now and these longer runs are taking up time so I was wondering about getting a buggy for little man that I could run with - is the baby jogger that good for running with? I've got a country side trail I run down, compacted hoggin surface, bit of rubble here and there (just to twist your ankle on). Would a baby jogger seriously take care of that?? Just been on ebay and they seem to go for about £60???

swimming nappies

My lad is 20months and his 'Poo Habits' are fairly predictable so I assume other kids are too? So would maybe use the poo catchers if LO is due to go, (my lad is like clockwork bless him) if not then use the normal nappy or, as I do, just swim shorts with a net, after all the wee is not a problem but who wants squashed up wet and soggy poo to deal with?? Yuck!

'Chicago test' in London

Just nosing about! TX at the ARGC is a LONG process, so if you do chose it as your clinic, plan to stay in London for around 2-3 weeks!!! I think the ARGC rock, and Dr T is a genius, but then, I would!!! Had by IVF, Chicago tests IVIG and every blooming drug/ steriod/ clexane/asprin/more steroids, more IVIG more clexane etc etc etc going with them - cost a FORTUNE but totally and utterly worth it. Good luck with whatever you choose, would defo do the full tests and full drugs available - is more...

Straining when doing a poo

My little man has a very red 'pooface', its really quite funny and yes sometines its a splat and sometimes its a proper poo!! He always gives a little judder when its done too, very funny! If you think she's a tad bunged up would defo just add a touch of prune juice in the old water and make sure she's well hydrated in such hot weather? If it carried on then the doctor can perscibe a gentle 'softener' to help things along, you dont want her holding it in because its hurting, and making the probl...

plagiocephaly

My little man hated tummy time due partly to his bad reflux, so we used 'props' such as a pillow or toy to half tummy half chest time him and it really helped, but TBH you sorta have to coach them into it over a period of time as they really do benefit from it and it helps with baby core strength / gross motor skills development etc. We often put his favourite 'In the Night Garden' on during this time (he's not normally allowed any TV) so it was both a reward and distractiuon - worked a treat!! ...

Mother in law --- grrrrrr

Dancing about calling you a mean mummy is not acceptable behaviour in anyones book. I totally feel you should let her know that the love she obviously has for her grandchild is very welcome, but you want to bring her up your way and constant comments are not welcome. Just be calm, open and honest saying it and dont get into a debate about it. You are the parents and doing a great job, its your right to bring up your beloved child without having such unwanted (and I feel outrageous) comments bein...

coping with losing my mum and having a 4 month old baby. Advice please.

Hey there I feel for you so much, my darling mum had a sad, horrible and lengthy fight with cancer that she eventually lost, leaving me alone and bereft just before Xmas a few years ago. I also looked after her till she was too ill and went into nursing care where she passed away, I dont think she knew much at the end but I was with her as much as was possible. I regret not holding her hand and being with her when she eventually passed away. Its a sad time for you and you must know that all you ...

risk of Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) with baby #2

Hey there My lad Eric was born with a Tetrology of Fallots, and has really gone through it this last year with 3 x heart surgey and endless complications (he's ok now - woot woot). I blamed myself totally and had 2 long chats with 2 cardiac specialists from 2 different hospitals, as I was so worried it was something I'd 'done to him'. I was told by both that CHD is not heriditory in any way and that unless i had abused alcohol or drugs during pregnancy, it was not my fault. I also asked if any o...

DH getting me down

Yeah I'd defo let him 'have a go' if thats the transformation, from what you said earlier in the post he dont take too long and a 3 hour play with TJ for a 5 min sesh with you seems a great return on investment!!!! Do you have to be awake????

DH getting me down

Someone somewhere once said to me, women need to feel loved to make love and men need to make love to feel loved - makes sense to me. Perhaps your old man is feeling insecure as you're super mum and spending time with your gorg little man and he's officially redundant until the summers here and the lawn needs mowing again? More time together without TJ and some honest conversation without snapping would maybe work? Either that or he's a selfish useless git and you're better off without him - kic...

Kids at Christmas

OMG me toooooo - so excited I could pee! We were freshly home from hospital with Eric last year, all tubed up, weighing just 6lbs and critically ill, with a first heart surgery planned for new years day! Not very merry as we just didnt sleep for checking the aponea alarm was working!!! But here we are a year on, all surgery and horror a memory and having also just taken little man to the local church's carol service (it does you good to say thanks to the big man upstairs) and he was chatting and...
