What to buy for after birth?

i'm going to ignore the gross placenta comments - yuck! i bought a nursery essentials kit from mothercare that i found really useful after the birth - it had a nasal aspirator in it which i used within a week of my daughter being born as she was a bit 'snuffly' and really helped to clear her little nose! Sx

IN THE NEWS - Fertility stories making the headlines

I cannot believe the attitude of the people posting comments on the BBC website, i'd love to know how many of the people saying 'adopt or foster' have got children of their own. I never realised how many small minded people there were out there, hardly any comments were making the case for NHS funded IVF. Sx

Anyone else feel like this?

I've been feeling exactly the same, i would never comment on a strangers baby - where do these people get off??!! My dd has been fussing when i'm breastfeeding, for 6 weeks i've been convinced she wasn't getting enough so been latching her on.. and on... and on. Last week realised she fusses when she needs to burp so i've been making her get trapped wind! Poor little thing, i felt dreadful. Unfortunatley they dont come with individual instruction manuals! Nobody knows your own baby as well as yo...

bit worried

Thanks Philippa, just noticed your fab name for your daughter - duh!!! I think my brain is slowly engaging back into gear! Last night was pretty much textbook - waking every 3.5 hours and i seemed to have more milk to satisfy her too so all in all, good start to the day. Really looking forward to the group tomorrow as well, just a bit daunting trying to be ready to get there for 10.30am!! Thanks for reassuring me re her evening 'grumpiness' too - will just persist in offering her food, hopefully...

PS - she's fed roughly every three hours today, she sleeps for longer at night (five hours last night) Should i have woken her earlier for a feed do you think?

bit worried

Thanks everyone, thats helped SO much, Bubble - i am on iron tablets and painkillers as i lost a lot of blood during delivery, hadn't thought that may be a reason for the poo issue! Today i managed to express off at 3.30am then fed at 5.30, only expressed again once today so i have some for tonight at about midnight. I've breastfed longer at each feed and she's come off quite sleepy, i've then offered the other breast as a top up after about ten mins and being winded. She takes that too but to b...

bit worried

Hello, was hoping for some advice, my daughter (can't believe i can finally write that!) is 2 weeks old on Wednesday, after a tricky start with the breast feeding (cracked bleeding nipples) i have the latch on sussed and she seems to be taking it well. however the midwife is concerned that she's not putting on enough weight and that the contents of her nappy (sorry if TMI) is still a greeny colour instead of yellow. I've been told to express after every feed which i've been doing for the last we...

Pregnancy after loss chat

Glad you've got a scan Moogle, hoping the three weeks will whizz by for you! Jen - happy to see you back here, i know you dont like lots of congrats but everything crossed here for you and hoping that in 30 weeks you're thinking every twinge could be your waters breaking instead of the 'knicker watch' of the first trimester. I didn't post on a trimester thread until i got to the third and am still in a bit of denial now, i dont think it will go until i'm holding my baby (and then i'll be checkin...

For a bit of a laugh...

This thread is brilliant, i think i've heard nearly every one of these 'helpful' commments during my ttc journey. The ones i loved the most were 'friends' suggesting i was very selfish to be going through IVF when so many abandoned children need a home. If that was the case then why does anyone try for their own child at all???

Migraines

I suffered badly with migraine in my first trimester, there is light at the end of the tunnel as they left me at about 15 weeks, i used paracetemol but the wierdest thing for me was when i felt one coming i had 1 cup of caffeinated coffee (i had cut out all caffeine when ttc) and it really seemed to stop the migraine in its tracks. I'm pretty sure my migraines were oestragon caused so i also cut out shampoos/body washes/lotions that had parabens in and avoided microwaving anything in a plastic c...

How do I deal with it?

Hello, i agree with mrs jasper, i found the whole pregnancy thing when my sis in law was pregnant after my second m/c very difficult but was alot better when my nephew was born. For a while i couldn't even speak to her but when i felt able i told her exactly how i felt and she was then really sensitive to my situation. I think often people dont know how to be around a couple ttc, the best thing i found is to be open and honest and say if you are having a day when you just can't talk about it. Sx

picking a name

some people obviously never say the whole name outloud! Poor guy i work with called Wayne has just changed his surname as he turned 18, it was King!!!! Felt so sorry for him, he'd put up with it for 18 years! Sx

picking a name

I really loved Violet for a girl but our surname starts with D so thats out! On an amusing note friends of my god-daughter at school have just named their son Isaac - lovely but not with their surname - Cox! Sarah x
