bubs in nursery and hes really not enjoying it

Hiya poppit, I work in a nursery and 2 x 2hour settle sessions does not sound good to me at all! I offer at least 4, 2 of which parents can stay if they feel they want to. Also, they should be doing everything possible to make sure your LO is happy, after all, you are paying their wages and if you take LO out then they need to replace asap to cover costs. Does you LO have a keyperson? (someone to welcome and comfort them - same person each session LO attends) What have they told you they are doi...

When to move to next car seat ?

keep baby in rear facing for as long as physically possible - it's safer if you have a crash - which i hope you don't have, but it is safer

Safety Catches

OR - do what my SIL did and turn your door handles so they turn upwards to open. Does that make sense?? she just unscrewd the panel, swapped the inside around and it make the handle need to be lifted to open the catch / door

rectal prolapse in 2 year old

Hi LondonMummy - welcome to the site and you are MORE than welcome to write in this thread. Sounds like our boys are very close in age. My son will be 3 at the end of July. Luckily since we had our appointment my son has not had anymore prolapses but is STILL only pooing in a nappy, despite a variety of bribes to go on the loo such as chocolate, ice cream, treats etc. Firstly, sorry to hear about the bleeding. I would definately be on the phone to the clinic at least once a week asking for a can...

Relationship troubles

Hiya, I am kinda glad you posted here coz it has my attention. I / we are totally in a similar situation. The problem with me and my DH is that he is deeply jealous of our children and finds it very difficult to accept that I am breastfeeding. When our son was about 8 months old I actually left him as I couldnt stand the constant arguing and feeling low all the time. Things got better - a little bit - I came back home and 2 years later I fell PG with our daughter. Things have just got worse from...

When was your child dry at night?

ive seen the training pants in boots and mothercare, not sure if you'd be able to get a bigger size online though. Also might be able to find one from somewhere that sells "real nappies" as they do a training pant which goes quite big. Not sure exactly how big though. They are like a cotton towelling fabric pant.

When was your child dry at night?

just wondered how you got on with your DS and taking him to the loo when asleep? My DS is nearly 3 and although dry in the day, is absolutely soaked in the mornings. His nappy is so full some mornings that it leaks. I was a late 'dry at nighter' too and ended up having a nasal spray called 'desmopresin' to keep my dry, so have a feeling this may be the case with my DS. How about some 'special pants' like training pants or something?? Not sure how big your son is as to weather they would fit - bu...

Any advice on a sunshade for a double nipper 360 ?

Ive got a shade a babe - admittedly for a single, but the staff in mothercare let me try it on my 2 pushchairs before i bought it. It does look a bit odd that the babes are covered in this big black mesh thing, but a lot of the time i have the zip flap undone a little so you can see the baby, and although you cant see through it, the babes can see a lot through it, somwething to do with the way it is woven??? It is my essential piece of kit for the summer - especially as it doesnt matter where t...

Sleeping through!!

As long as baby is gaining weight then dont worry about it. My health visitor has told me to wake up my DD since she started sleeping through at 4 weeks old, but i didnt. I was too tired and would fall asleep if i did wake her and would worry id drop her. She didnt feed properly and was griumpy coz i woke her so i did it for 2 days then stopped and let her sleep through again. Baby will wake when they have growth spurts intermittently and the milk will be there so dont panic and enjoy!!!

Combining breast and bottle

I tried fenugreek with my DS and found no difference at all, and neither did my firends, except we all radiated it's - erm - "charming" smell!! lol If you feel your supply is low you can get medication called 'domperidone' i think that you take to increase supply - BUT only from a doctor or health visitor who would be the best people to talk to.

** NEW TV SERIES - BRINGING UP BRITAIN **

I'm a little nervous that this programme is going to be negative and not show the positives of breastfeeding. Hoping it does encourage more mums to BF their babies, but considering the presenter of the documentary bottle fed - I very much doubt it. We shall see!!!

Feel like such a crap mum :(

I agree that you dont need to have chn to work with them - i was qualified to work with children before I had them, but when it is things like sleep deprivation etc, personal experience counts for a lot as you can only truly empathise when you've been in the same situation.

Feel like such a crap mum :(

Hiya rockchick - your post seems much more relaxed this time so those teeth must have made a HUGE difference for you. Bet that was a huge relief!! Quantity wise, what you are feeding your LO seems ok, however there does seem to be a lot of sugar in the foods there. Fruit is great and a lovely natural source of sugar, but things like the petit filous yog has such a high sugar content. Petit filous has the highest sugar content of all the children's yogs. Have you tried natural yogurt with fruit i...

Feel like such a crap mum :(

Hiya Rockchick As the other mums say, you definately are not a crap mum, you are an extrememly tired and normal mum who is going through what many new mums do. The age that your son is now is about the age that separation anxiety sets in, which is where your son is realising when you are near or not. It is totally normal for babies to get a bit clingy now and want you more than they did before. I totally agree with macD about getting in touch with a sleep advisor. A close friend of mine spoke to...

pushchair wars!

I have a hipseat which was a lifesaver when my DS decided at about the same age that he did not want to sit in his pushchair. Mine is a 'Hippychick' one which I got on ebay. It goes around your waist (don't be fooled by the name!! lol) and takes the weight of the child so that you dont end up with a killer backache and it also makes you stand up straight. You can also get extenders if it doesn't go around you. I was a size 18/20 when using it and didn't need it, but my sister was the same size a...

Combining breast and bottle

firstly - 9oz is a hell of a lot for a 3month old to be having!!!! My DS wasn't even having that much at 1 year old! You need to remember that if you top up with formula your breasts aren't in demand so they wont make enough milk to satisfy LO and you'll need to constantly top up. Size 1 teats are probably the best at this stage, but the best thing to do would be to talk to a health visitor as they'll be able to look at LO's red book and advise on where to go. Another thing to remember is that i...

rectal prolapse in 2 year old

Googling paniced the life out of me too - it is a sign of so many things - including potty training!! This is what we got told - Don't put your LO on the potty (training toilet) for a poo coz that is what can cause it - sitting on it for too long - the position isnt good for them. Stick with the toilet as it is less likely to happen. Don't panic when it happens coz you'll make your LO scared to go, causing him to hold it and then he'll be constipated. Give LO lots of fruit and fibre to soften hi...

Babys weight gain - how much on average per week?

Thanks all - I spoke to another HV yesterday who actually has children and has breastfed her children. She looked at my DD and said she didn't see what the problem was - she asked about family heights etc and there was also another woman at the clinic who's daughter is 6 months old and has only just come out of 0-3m clothes so that was a good support too. The new HV said she'll speak to my HV for me and explain that she has caused uneccesary worry. She said as long as she is gaining every week I...
