Lynsey congrats Hun on the adoption. First off don't feel bad my ds gets that every time his teeth hurt and to the point it bleeds. We find the metanium (the yellow one) and when it's bad he does need steriods to heal it. We switch to cleaning with water when it's bad. I have found some wipes are more gentle so I stick to those (sainsburys own brand and Johnson's no scent as I've found those with scent tend to make it worse). You are a great mum xxxx

Amy I feel your pain. My ds is waking up screaming, inconsolable...don't know what to do with him
!! He seems like his scared so I was thinking bad dreams but what to do??!

Just a really quick one as on train to work :(

Welcome Lynsey and massive congratulations! I'm lucky in that DD doesn't ever really get nappy rash other than very occasionally an then I use that yellow cream that Louise mentions, one night and it's gone. I do tend to stick to the unscented wipes too.

Amy I'm sorry that your DD is so unsettled. My DD tends to wake at 3am but not every night. She settles after milk from me, a habit I really need to break. I'm really sorry I don't know what to suggest, fat lot of help I am haha but I send my sympathies ( and to you Louise)

Sorry no more personals but hi to everyone else and EE can I say Rubin is looking cuter by the day!

Well DD off to nursery for first full day. Trying not to cry on the train this morning it's so hard. She hasn't settled very well at all but I have no choice but to leave her. The staff have been amazing with her though so hoping she settles in soon. Only time she doesn't cry is when they give her food! She's had a growth spurt and her hair is really growing now, can't believe she's becoming a proper toddler!

We also use the yellow cream (metanium) when she is suffering bad rash (not very often more when she has bad poo's continuously)
BUT.... EGG WHITE ... crack an egg, seperate it, whisk it up, and smother his bum in it, then put a nappy on...

It takes all swelling away to heal! I tried this when her's was at the point of blistered and bleeding and by next morning it was heading the right direction in healing! ... Its easier if there is 2 of you though cos the egg on your hands is very messy so you need the other person to finish off putting the nappy on lol :thumbsup:
Let me know if you try it and it helps? ;)

Still persevering with S waking up! Another 4 times last night though ;(

Hey thanks all. Yes I use metanium on him, I always recommend it to parents at the nursery where I work. Ooooo I remember hearing about the egg white thing before actually. I also only get fragrance free sensitive wipes which the Asda ones are (were)...they are now in the bin though, he also can't use Johnsons sensitive as they made him rashy too. Funnily enough my cousin couldn't use them on her children either. I went and got even more wipes today but the ones he had at his Foster home, might go and get some more as they were on a really good offer in Boots as well. Should of been £2.55 a pack but reduced to 99p then also on 3 for 2!!!
Anyway it looks a bit better today, still really red and sore but not quite as angry bless him...yesterday I did think I was going to have to take him to get steroid cream.

We had our HV to see us today (1st time|) and thankfully she is lovely! Just gave us info on local groups, had a look through his red book and we updated her on things the SWs and medical advisors are keeping an eye on.

Net ~ I know it's easy for me to say especially as my DS isn't going to nursery until next year, but I have been a Nursery Nurse for 12years and DD will be fine....yes she may well send you on the biggest guilt trip over it but she really will be fine. If she is happy to eat there then that's really positive x

Welcome Lynsey, great to see new mummies joining. Best thing for nappy rash is leaving your little boys nappy off. I know it could potentially be messy but it really does help.

Hi to everyone else, I'm sorry I've been absent for so long but have been wrapped up in my wee Isla bubble while hubby has been away and found it difficult to get on here.

Glad to see all your lo's are doing well and getting so big. As EE said, we've been meeting up weekly and it's so lovely to share this time with another mum (and gorgeous boy) while we muddle through being new parents.

Lots of love to you all xxx

Hi everyone

Long time no post again sorry! It's gone from weekly to monthly LOL!

Lynsey - welcome and congratulations on becoming a mummy. You mentioned DS was teething - I suspect it's that that has caused the nappy rash and the wipes have probably aggravated it. When they're teething they dribble loads and swallow a lot of the saliva, which can make their wee more acidic hence the nappy rash. I swear by metanium. When my DS had bad nappy rash we put loads of metanium on then smothered sudocrem over the top to act as a barrier. It cleared up in a day, honestly it's that good. The doctor told us to do that. As Louise said I would just use cotton wool and water until it clears. I know lots of mums have their own preference to wipes but my son has eczema and the dermatologist told us that tesco wipes are the best for his delicate skin (after cotton wool and water that is, so for on the go). Not sure why she thinks that but we use them although sometimes I do buy asda's, and always fragrance free.

Net - how's being back at work? Sucks huh? Are you back full-time? I go back at the end of July, staying on 4 days a week with Wednesdays off to break the week up and less hours (25 hour week). Re nursery it can take a good month or so for them to settle in. Well it did for DS. He would cling to our leg and cry and we would feel so bad but when we rang the nursery an hour later he'd be fine and his tears stopped as soon as we left. We've had a set back recently actually as DS stayed at my parents last weekend for the first time on his own and although he loved it it has triggered some separation anxiety and he has gone back to crying his little heart out when we have taken him to nursery this week. I think he thinks we're going to leave him there bless him. He was very off the DH too (not sure why) and clingy to me. It's a lot to take in for their tiny minds while they try and deal with the emotions and their feelings but I'm sure your DD will soon settle in and love it. My DS has come on leaps and bounds since attending nursery.

Amy - how old is your DD? They have sleep regressions and my son had one around 19 months where he would wake in the night crying. Sometimes it would be night terrors and other times he just woke (probably because of a bad dream) and cried and needed reassurance. DH and I took it in turns to stay with him and made up a bed next to his (I got one of those chairs that opens up into a mattress for his room) and would stay with him until he fell asleep as he would cry if we left when he was awake. Often we'd fall asleep next to him and then just sneak out when he was asleep. Originally we would bring him into our bed but I was pregnant at the time with DD and as I got bigger we knew we had to stop it before the baby arrived as couldn't have a toddler and a baby in our bedroom LOL! It was tiring and did take a while (a good few months on and off) but it paid off as since August he has slept fine and when he does wake he doesn't need us to stay with him until he falls asleep. a kiss and cuddle is enough I can't remember exactly when we took the side off the cot for DS but he slept in that for a few months until we bought a toddler bed last summer. He has a gate on his bedroom door but touch wood he has never climbed out of bed and been one to fight going to bed. He is such an angel and even when he wakes in the morning he will lie there patiently waiting for one of us to go and get him. I always hear him though on the video monitor so know when he has woke - he lies there singing nursery rhymes bless him :)

Rally and EE - lovely that you two meet up often. I've been attending baby classes and become friends with a few on FB and we plan to go walking together. I have another friend who had a son a week before DD was born so we sometimes meet up too. It's great having mummy friends to socialise with.

Can't scroll back anymore sorry so hi to everyone else and hope you're OK.

All good here. DD is so much better as she gets older. Always smiling and her sleep is getting better and better and more importantly she can self soothe so I can put her in the cot awake now with very little fuss. She doesn't sleep through every night though but only wakes once, or twice on a bad night. I don't mind though as long as I get at least 4 hours solid sleep I am fine. I actually think she is just a noisy sleeper who cries out during the sleep cycles but as I don't want her to wake DS up (which she has sometimes) I get her a bottle and just feed her back into a deep sleep, which I suspect she has become a bit use to but it doesn't take long to do.

How are some of you getting on with weaning? I have been so much more laid back with DD and in no rush. She has had some mashed food now and then but not every day. She isn't sitting up unaided yet, well she is but not for long, so I haven't tried finger foods. I've just spoon fed her and she seems to like it but she doesn't seem as excited as DS was who had his mouth open ready for every mouthful LOL!

DD has had a cold on and off since Christmas and gets very chesty with it. I'm taking her back to the docs on Monday as she has calpol most days and it just doesn't seem to clear. I have a nasal spray too. I think I may try steaming up the bathroom with a hot shower and sitting in there with her. Oh and I put Olbas oil on a muslin next to her cot. It's showing no signs of clearing though. Despite that she still gives me lots of smiles and I love spending time with her now and find it much more enjoyable (than those hard early months!). Rally - is Isla better now as her and DD were similar weren't they? I still say the first 3 months were pretty rubbish LOL!

Hope you're all good anyway.

Bye for now :bye:

Thanks buzzbee......it was the wipes, his hands and face flared up majorly from them too as in a proper reaction rather than just aggravated.......ccertainly won't be getting them again. Tesco ones he is fine with.......good really as I have a few boxes under his cot....
Have you tried vicks on your DD feet then cover them at night time....I told so many parents at the nursery about it and seemed to work.....it even worked when DH tried it.......the things you get to know when working ias a nursery nurse in a room of 12 babies for 12yrs!!

Hi ladies,

Looking for a bit of advice if anyone can help,
Got home from work this lunchtime my sister was watching Z and her little girl at my house, I walked in the door to be greeted by my little man, then I notice he had a massive scratch going across his cheek which had been bleeding so I asked my sister what happened and she said the kids were fighting and not to worry as he gave as good as he got, apparently he was just pushing her back. So he came to sit with me and I notice more scratches going down his neck and the top of his back!! I was really upset, they looked so sore. Bathed him after she went and he kept crying saying sore sore :(
Dp came home and was so angry, saying he doesn't want my sister looking after him anymore as she doesn't watch them properly. Which would kinda mess me up as she watches him one day a week for me.
I'm not saying by any means he's a little angel, he's far from it I know that!!! I just hate to think of him being hurt and I'm not there, I know kids will be kids and bicker and fight. Just don't know what to do now, dp is adamant he doesn't want her looking after him anymore.

Any advice on what to do ladies?!

Hope your all doing well, sorry no personals need to have a scroll back and read through so will catch up with you all tomorrow xxx

Thanks Lynsey. I tried the Vicks on DS's feet when he had a cold as a baby but it never worked. May try it with DD. I use Snuffle babe though. Maybe I should try proper Vicks but can it be used on a 6 month old?! Will nip to the chemist to check. What age do you look after at nursery? My son is just over 2 and a half years old. He loves it and has been there since he turned 1. We're in the process of potty training (finally!) and nursery have really helped us with it. He does all his wees on the potty or toilet (mostly) but is yet to feel comfortable doing a number 2. We're going to bite the bullet this weekend and stop putting him in pull ups and let him wear underpants all day and see how we get on. I just don't want to distress him too much so if he gets upset we will revert back to pull ups and try again in a few days.

Cheenab - I completely sympathise as it's horrible knowing another child has hurt or upset our LO and especially when it's a cousin. Sometimes when I am at my step mother in laws and her grandaughters are there who are 4 and almost 2 I see them be a 'bit rough' with DS and the youngest is forever pushing him and bossing him about. I tell him to walk away and ignore them but my DH is like 'no son hit them back and give as good as you get!' I think it's as much a pride thing too for DH as who wants their son to be hit by a girl?! I don't believe in teaching them that though. If I'm there when it happens DS does walk away and comes over to me for reassurance. Are you close to your sister? How old is his cousin who scratched him? It's a tough one but I think as long as you and your sister are on the same wave length in regards to how to deal with them getting into scuffles then she shouldn't stop looking after him. I'm sure she didn't just leave them to it did she? I reckon I have all this to come when DD gets older and I'm sure she will scratch DS or vice versa when I'm not looking. It's normal child behaviour isn't it and them just asserting themselves in certain situations? I have scratches on me from DD, even though I have tried to cut her nails short she still catches me when I am holding her and it's of course not done maliciously. Hopefully his cousin wasn't as rough as the scratches make out. I hope your DS is OK though hun.

Well DD has had a few nights now where she has slept through but it means an earlier wake up! Last night she went to bed at 6:30pm then didn't wake until 4:50am but after her bottle instead of going back to sleep she was still awake and I reasoned that she'd had a good 10 hour sleep. Can't have everything I suppose eh LOL?!

Have a good weekend everyone xx

I spent most of the 12years in the baby room (3mths-16/18mths) spent a year or 2 with the next couple of age groups up to about 3yrs. Work wise my heart stays in the baby room. But when I return in January I kind of want a lesser role.....less responsibility less stress and a damn sight less paperwork. I don't know if money wise that will be possible......but it will have to get weighed up against stress levels etc too. Fingers crossed it will work out, especially as DS will get funded 2's as he is a cared for/ adopted child and he will turn 2 a couple of months after I return to work.

Cheenab, that is a really tricky one... If there were a lot of scratches and they were sore and bleeding I'm afriad I couldn't just leave it. It depends on the extent of them. Obviously kids will be kids and they play but when you have two very little ones playing together you do have to watch them and surely intercept if things are getting too rough. I understand where your DH is coming from though it would make things much harder for you. Is this the first time anything has happened? Can you talk to your sister about it again?

Got to dash, dd just woken up, great timing as off to a first aid course shortly xxx

Hi ladies

Lynsey and BB thanks for the words of encouragement re nursery. She had an OK day on Tuesday but an awful one yesterday where she basically cried from 8am until 3pm. She still ate her lunch mind you. Makes me feel sick with guilt at leaving her there and want to quit my job but financially we just can't do that. How long Lynsey, in your experience, does it take babies to settle in? My insist is just to whip her out of there and try and find an alternative until she's a bit older but I guess we haven't given it long enough yet (yesterday was only her second full day).
BB glad DD is sleeping better now and things are easier for you. I'm back 3.5 days a week with the .5 day being at home, so not too bad. Absolutely hating being back though I have to say. The office has changed so much since I was there and I don't really like the changes that have been made.

Cheenab that is a tricky one, could you speak openly to your sister about it?

Hi Dusky , EE and everyone else.

AFM not much other than the nursery stress mentioned above. DD is ill yet again and so am I and DH with streaming colds. Just given DD calpol too as her temp is 38. She seems really listless and tired but still eating and drinking so hopefully just her cold making her feel rotten. She's also teething bless her. She's taking more and more steps so I think walking's not far off! Just off to see my mum who had a knee replacement last week, hoping not to give her our colds!

Have a great weekend everyone, what are your plans?

Hi, Lynsey - just noted the issue you have experienced using wipes. C (ok so he is 7 now but it feels like yesterday) also reacted when I used wipes on his bottom. No matter which brand, hypoallergenic or not, he would develop a nasty nappy rash whenever I used them (blisters and raw, peeling skin - he would scream with the pain when his nappy got wet and when I cleaned him) and he also got a rash when I used them on his hands or face. In the end I just started travelling with a packet of dry cotton woll pads (the kind you use to remove make-up) and wet them with plain water when I went into the baby change rooms at the shops. At home I kept a pack (or 3) or the same type of cotton wool pads next to the changing pad and a spray bottle of water which I would freshen up twice a day. Once I started using them he never got nappy rash again.
I found this was no less convenient than using wipes and the cotton pads actually took up less room in the nappy bag than the wipes container...

Hey Net....with your DD age it could take a while to settle, not knowing her i really cant say. I know you probably hear it all the time but no child is the same......some children take to nursery straight off, some it takes time and one day will just click.
I often find children are angry over it and rather than crying it's just shouting and noise if that makes sense. My niece started nursery at a similar age only done one day a week so took her a while but now she couldn't care less if her mum or dad go in the room she just waves them off at the door.
Sorry I can't be much more help.......a month off work has made my mind go already.

Rene all seems well now with wipes if I stick to tesco ssensitive, pampers sensitive and Huggies so all good there.

Net my ds didn't take to nursery either but to be honest I didn't give it much of a chance he screamed the place down the entire time I left him and he really sobs, the staff tried to reassure me but it didn't settle me, I ended up going with a childminder and within 2 settling in sessions he has never cried leaving me since, I have the opposite problem now that he doesn't want to leave, I felt the more one on one approach worked more for him but every child is different, I'm sure dd will settle soon.

Cheenab sorry to hear about your problems I can't offer any advice unfortunately, what age is your sisters dd? I had a friend I grew up with that always hit and bit me, one day I hit her back and she stopped, we were 3/4 so a bit different, my ds is quite bad for hitting when he's tired but thankfully as far as I no he's not hit any other children yet.

Lynsey how is ds now?

I have signed up to do a competition called tough mudder so starting my training tomor, not looking forward to it lol

Hi to everyone else hope your all well

DS is all sorted now thanks.
So last few days the little monkey has had totally messed up sleep paterns tfor one reason or another and now thinks 3 or 4am is wake up time. Wakes up happy, chatting to his favourite teddy, once he has had his chat he starts banging the cot to get our attention. I really do think he is going go be a little terror. So cheeky at 11months. No telling what the terrible 2s will bring lol x

Hello all!

Lynsey congrats on becoming a mummy! How exciting to be getting to know your little boy.

Net so sorry you're having nursery settling issues. My DS was a bit older when he started and it took him a couple of months to be content at drop-off, though less time to settle for most of the day. I'm sure as Lynsey says all kids are different and you just have to follow your instincts about whether the arrangement will suit her. I would say that if she is under the weather at the moment you might find that's affecting how she settles. Ds was always clingier when he had a cold or teeth coming etc. they like their home comforts when they are under the weather. Has she got a comfort toy with her or anything like that?


We are doing fine. Had a little holiday in Sussex last week, in Pooh country, which was gorgeous. Stayed in a lovely old inn where we could put the kids down to sleep and take the monitor down to the pub restaurant below for a grown up supper. Bliss! Lots of tramping in the woods too.

I am going into work tomorrow to chat with my boss about going back. A bit nervous about it. Feeling a bit out of the loop. And I've put on weight so I don't fit in any of my clothes! Makes me even more self conscious. I'm taking ds2 with me so hopefully all the attention will be on him not me!

Bb we are loving weaning so far! Was going to wait until 6 months but ds2 wouldn't let me! He just wants his meat and potatoes, this boy! He has had my homemade soda bread, banana slices, pear purée and yogurt so far in the last few days. I'd forgotten what a mess it makes. Never ending laundry - there's always stuff soaking in napisan - either paint, mud, poo, food or all of the above! 8|

Right, best get some sleep, I've just noticed the time...

Love to all xxxxxx

Hi Ladies, me again...

Had the most awful day on Friday - fright of my life, and typically my OH who had been off all week, had gone back to work that morning :-(

Basically ... Scarlett was rushed to hospital with suspected meningitis! She had every symptom apart from bright lights sensitivity!
She woke up screaming (not like her) ... She was boiling hot (we later found out her temp was over 40 degrees) ... She was convulsing/shaking cos of the temp, she was covered in a rash and when I touched her she screamed in agony ;( ;( ;(

Anyway, all day at hospital and countless tests, confirmed not the dreaded M, but a nasty viral infection!
In fact nasty isn't even the word, cos she's had virals before, but nothing like this monster!!! :S
So... this could have been the underlying problem of the sleepless weeks eh?

Doc said the diarrhoea for 2 weeks is probably the infection inside trying to get out, and true to his word, now its out, the diarrhoea has stopped thankfully :rollseyes: ... She's still not right, and is still waking countless times etc, but last night she did a 7 hour stint thankfully (cos I'm at work today lol) .... My poor baby though! Was terrified what was happening! ... Turns out as well, the rash got worse as her temp rose!
Once we got it down to between 36/37, it started fading and is pretty much gone now after 3/4 days!
Oh and seems she has cystisis... we had to try get urine sample from a toddler who doesn't understand - took me and my mum 4 hours to succeed, but she cried every time she wee'd ... and now, the cystitis has caused thrush!
Poor girls bits are covered in sore spots ;( Hope she gets better real soon!
Nursery said yesterday that she wasn't right all day and at one point inconsolable which they'd never seen with her before! :thumbdown:
She's with my mum today so hopefully she'll be feeling better? I'll text actually :whistling:


Cheens - how's Z? Have you spoken with your sister? Any developments with DP etc? :pinch:

Net - is your LG settling in any better? Have you tried again or given up on nursery idea? (S still can be clingy when I'm dropping her off and sometimes cries a little but its more for attention, I now hand her over, walk out, and stop round the corner to listen - as soon as I'm out of sight, she doesn't even whimper haha, its all for attention and guilt tripping me!!! ... And she's fine all day, really thriving at a nursery honestly! And when I go to pick her up she runs straight over to me so never forgets who I am and doesn't resent me for the day ;) : D )

With regards to teeth ... well ... surely S will start again sometime soon? I have thought she's been slightly teething again but then I don't know now with all thats happened over the weekend 8| ... But this girl still only has 4 teeth hahahaha

Hope all you ladies are well...

How would you all feeling uploading 1 photo to share your precious miracles for us to have a look?

Hello ladies

I have gorged myself on one too many pancakes :licklips:
Hope you've all been indulging too!

Amy - goodness how scary. I am so glad Scarlett is ok and what a cutie! Hope that the sleeping starts to get back to normal now. How was she today with your mum?

Bee - Whereabouts was the place you stayed in Sussex? Sounds like a lovely break away. How did work go today? Glad weaning is going so well. Your home cooking sounds fantastic!

Lynsey - glad i'm not the only one up at 5am then! Well, we managed 5.30 today and I get up for work at 6 anyway so I gave up and made a cuppa with DD.

Sasha how's the Tough Mudder training going!!

Thank you to everyone who's given nursery advice. Last week was a disaster but today went better. She still cried loads but not as much as before and when I picked her up she wasn't crying and was having a nice cuddle with one of the nursery workers. She'd even made me some 'art' -consisting of a dollop of strawberry angel delight on a piece of card with a little furry circle stuck on top. :laugh: I can't remember crying this much in ages (well, since DD was a newborn when I think I cried every day for 6 weeks...), just as we'd gotten a great routine at home, I've had to go back to work.
I still think it's going to be a long road for her but I am hoping that she starts to settle soon. I'm not expecting no tears at drop off but would love it if she stopped after a few minutes rather than a few hours. Not helped by the fact that her 39 degree temperature being explained by her first molar peeking through her gum yesterday, plus 2 other teeth. Bless her. She's *still* got a cold as well, about 6 weeks now! DH and I also have it, I am so bored of coughing and blowing my nose. DD is supposed to have her 12 month vaccinations on Friday, just trying to find a date that she's not ill on!!

I have noticed a few bad habits creeping in already though from nursery! She has suddenly become very rough with her toys, never done it before but her new favourite game is thumping her toys as hard as possible against our wooden floors! The noise!!
I have a day off tomorrow so DD and I are going to have a mummy daughter day.

Hello to everyone else too. :xxx3:

Hi girls

Amy that sounds awful and my ds has had his fair share of viral infections but that sounds just awful hope dd is on the mend

Net my ds has bad habits from the childminder as she has older children of her own I think my ds thinks he's one of them and wants to play fight lol, to say he wins every time would be an understatement who knew a baby could hit so hard, hope you have a fab mummy daughter day, training is going well thanks just back from the gym managed three miles running in 28 min without stopping, I'm not gonna compete in Olympics anytime soon but it's a start lol

Amy, your poor Scarlett! Hope she's well on the mend. What a scare.


Net, sounds like dd is getting on a little better - I'm so pleased for you both as its tough on you when she's unsettled. I bet you anything that as she gets over lurgies and teething - and of course starts to feel more at ease with nursery staff - she does better and better. What an odd choice of medium for her artwork... !!!

We stayed at an inn called The Cat in West Hoathly. We've been there once before too. It's gorgeous! That area is very daytripable from where you are too! We passed very near you on the m25... Must hook up one of these days.


Lynsey you must be shattered!!! Hope your OH can bring you a cuppa in the morning? (I am seriously considering getting a teasmade at the moment!)

Hugs to all xxx

Oh and I also so want a teasmaid, but what happens to the milk?! We are on the third floor and it feels like such a trek to the kitchen to make a cuppa at 5.30 which is DDs new wake up time of choice.

Bee I have thought about a teas maid soooo many times. DH has given up making me cuppas in the mornings I always forgot they were there and left them haha

So DS has had a few really good nights. Last night woke up about 1:30 for a nappy change, when he woke up he was also full of cold and horrible cough bless him, he has had a tickly cough for a few days but last night and today its worse. I think I might try to get him in at the doctors...I'm not really sure....3wks into placement with a 11 month old and I know about as much about him as people would of known about their new born at 3wks old......if it was just stuffy nose and tickly cough still I wouldn't think about going he doesn't have a temp. It's just because the cough has changed and stopping him from sleeping........do I go or shall I leave it a day or few???

On a better note we went to see the HV again yesterday for 1yr (ish) developmental check and all went well. Happy with his steady weight gain, meeting 'milestones' and a generally happy chatty food monster little boy. We did bring up one concern and that's that he has on arm a fair bit bigger/chunkier than the other, I probably only bought it up as my cousins little boy has this thing where his arm and leg on one side is a lot bigger. It was only noticed by is Mum when he was about 7months, she kept taking him back to the doctors about it until they finally done something, I think it turned out to be something with hormones. He now at the age of 5 still has to go for regular weight and height checks and every few months also has to have scans. I'm sure it won't be the case but best to get these things looked at now. Anyway the HV looked and said if we were concerned to make a docs appointment but she didn't seem too concerned. I may leave it until next week and we/DS has a big review with the social services team including medical and development things so I may bring it up there first just in case it has been mentioned in the past and they have failed to mention it to us!
Anyways.........I have waffled on far too much!!!

So quickly......

Sasha ~ Go you with signing up for the event and good luck wit your training!!

Net ~ Now DD is attaching to a member of staff at Nursery fingers crossed she will settle soon. With picking up 'Bad habits' from nursery you could speak to them? I would hate it if some of the children I look after went home doing things they never done before play wise being rough etc and was thought they were picking up bad habits from Nursery.

Hi ladies,

Amy poor Scarlett hope she is on the mend soon give her a massive cuddle from us all xxx have popped an invite in the post for you all with all the details on!!!
I can't believe our boy is 2 next month eeekkk!!!! Scary!!!!
Lynsey, glad all went well with the hv and hopefully the social worker can be a bit more reassuring about his arm.
Net glad DD is settling in a bit better at nursery, defo have a word with them if you are concerned about bad habits, I have mentioned a few times to the crèche Zachary goes to a few things I don't like and they are pretty good!!!!

Well dp has sort of come round to the idea, but has told me to check her nails when she comes round!!!! Men ay!!!
Tried talking to my sister and all I get is her being really defensive about it all and saying well he pushed her etc!!!
I know kids will be kids so I'm just having to keep a close eye on them both. She is here today, they are both currently snoozing!!! So hiding in the kitchen so I don't wake them rotf
They have been playing quite nice today but my niece isn't one for sharing and keeps taking Zachary's toys off him and saying there her toys!!!! So I've had to mediate a couple of arguements this morning!!!! ;)

Hope everyone is doing well, it's lovely and sunny here at the moment hope it sticks around :)

Just a quick post, Lynsey my ds has croup and a cough for almost 7 weeks but the doctors didn't do much but what I found helped was giving ds a pillow at night, keeping his room cool and I got a calpol plug in for his room that helps keep his nose clear, hope this helps a wee bit

:thanx: all, I think I'm going to have to take him to the docs today, he was awful last night and starting to affect his breathing too, I would rather get him checked out today than end up at out of hours over the weekend.

It's DS 1st birthday at the end of the month :party: we had thought about doing an open house/party afternoon thing the weekend before his birthday, but when looking at who we would invite even the fewest amount of relatives we would invite is too many lol, plus fitting something in between DS's nap times only leaves a small window which means everyone would be here at the same time and my house just isn't big enough. So I may just do some cupcakes and decorate the living room and just say to my parent's, brothers and same on DHs side that there will be cake........DH is off work on DS actual birthday so I think we might go to the zoo or something like that.

Amy - OMG how scary. I am relieved to hear it wasn't M and she is on the mend. I am on FB if you want to PM me to see pics of my LOs. Not everyone on my FB knows I went through IVF so I don't mention it on there and too worried to put pics on here in case anyone stumbled across it and reads my story, although I know it probably wouldn't happen. I know it's nothing to be ashamed of. Hopefully your LO will start to sleep better now the viral is easing xfingers

Net - in my opinion I would stick it a bit longer at nursery. I know it's hard but honestly it probably took my DS a good month or so to stop crying when we dropped him off. Now he absolutely loves the place and has come on leaps. He loves his little friends and has favourite staff members too. Of course if it is making you feel uncomfortable then you know what to do for the best but it does take time. Loved her artwork - it was like a fried egg LOL! DS brings some masterpieces home - a crayon line on a piece of paper LOL! I'm torn between keeping it and throwing it in the bin as he brings that many pictures home I now have to select my favourites :smile: Re her cold I am just back from the docs as DD has had one on and off since Christmas and is so chesty. I went on Monday and they prescribed antibiotics and wanted to check her again today. It has cleared up a little but not fully. I think DS and DD are playing ping pong with colds as he is forever snotty since starting nursery. All good for the immune system though I guess so hopefully it won't be too much of a shock to DD's system when she starts nursery in July. When DS started nursery he picked up lots of bugs and colds in those first few months.

Lynsey - hope DS is OK after your trip to the docs. As I was saying to Net my DD has had a cold and cough for a while now. I felt like I was constantly giving her calpol so was glad to try something else and it has eased a little. She was put on amoxicillin. She isn't 100% though. My DS use to have an inhaler when he was younger as he was forever getting chest infections and sounded wheezy. Whereas DD is more rattly and full of mucus. Re his birthday we did exactly the same for our DS - just close friends and family at home, put on a bit of a buffet, and had a family day out just the 3 of us. Think we went to Chester zoo actually.

Hi to Bees, Sasha, Cheenab and everyone else xx

AFM - weaning is getting better although I have noticed she is taking less milk but that could be because she is snotty too so struggling to suck and breathe with this cold. Poor thing. I have resigned myself to the fact that she isn't a baby who sleeps through and will always wake once in the night, which seems to be the norm. Now and then she may surprise me and sleep for a good 10 hours but it is very few and far between. DS would sleep through but always woke early at aroound 5am. DD lies in a little bit later but not much and she has a feed around 2am. It only takes 10 minutes though. I do wonder if I left her would she fall back to sleep but I still don't want her to wake DS up. Maybe it's habit she is waking but it's not too much trouble.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a lovely weekend. It's forecast to be mld, dry and sunny :cheeers:

I can't really say S is sleeping any better now she is over the viral ... however I'm certain there's a tooth about to make an appearance somewhere cos she keeps putting her dummy in handle first to chomp on the plastic! 8| :whistling:

She stayed at my dads this weekend (she's goes once a month as they don't live local so they both benefit from spending time together)
And I was hoping the change in routine etc would knock her out of waking up countless times lol...

Friday night was 3 times, and Saturday night was once before they went to bed and then nothing.
Last night at home, she woke up before I went to bed (crying for dummy) ... Then I remember her crying out at 3am ish, but I left her and she must have found the dummy cos she shut up haha... She didn't get up then until I woke her this morning for nursery! : D

Slight improvement, but not masses :sleeping:

Hope you are all well.... S has a slight cough on and off (more so when she wants attention) hahaha (8 o)

Hi girls

Can I join the club of babies that suddenly won't sleep :( I'm at work but dh has text to say ds was up crying, he really hasn't been himself the last few days but there's nothing specific wrong with him if that makes sense, this is the second night in the last few days he's been up crying at night then moaning during the day and being quite clingy with me which just isn't like him, any suggestions?

Hope your all well

Went to Docs as DS got worse but they gave him the all clear.....he does finally seem a lot better today just super crusty nose that he hates me cleaning but hey! We did have to get in touch with HV today as the last of the nappy rash thing had stopped improving, From what I have seen before with children I suspected thrush or that sort of thing. so she popped by this afternoon and had a look, agreed and prescribed some cream for him. Plus she wanted to pop by as we had our review meeting on Monday with all the social workers and the was there too and she just wanted to pass on her congratulations to us, and see how we felt after the meeting...she said we should be so proud and she doesn't think it could of gone any better!! So that was nice to hear.

DH finally returned to work this week (we have now had DS home a month) and I must say the little man has been an absolute gem, ok so I don't know where the hours go, but I pretty much get everything done. Especially when DS sleep s like he did yesterday....1.5hrs in the morning then another 1.5hrs in the afternoon, in bed asleep by 7;15 and slept all the way through until 7;15 this morning!! We have had a lovely day, some messy gloop play, salt dough hand prints and playing in the garden it was lovely out there I was tempted to have a nap out there when he went up for an afternoon nap!
So tomorrow, we are going on a little shopping trip with my Mum, then off to feed the ducks I think too.

Hope everyone is doing well! xx

Hey ladies
Where are you all?!

Wow how nice has the weather been recentl ( well in the south east anyway). Have been in the garden all day with Dd who has been getting very messy in the sandpit.

Lynsey glad DS is ok and hope his nappy rash starts to improve. And brilliant news with the sleeping - long may that last! My DD also has a super crusty nose as well as conjunctivitis and a cough - we are also off to the doctor tomorrow.

Hi Amy - is Scarlett sleeping any better ? An same for you Sasha - how is DS doing?

Hello Bee, EE, Louise RG, BB, Cheenab, Dusky everyone else sorry if I missed you! Blame the sunshine. WMG how are you and bump and Heather where are you!

Well ladies I am happy to report that other than the illness DD has turned a real corner and for the last two days at nursery only cried for a few minutes after drop off. She's been sleepig and eating really well there, playing in te garden, in the sandpit and the paddling pool - I am so relieved! Makes work that little less stressful. Just wish she was feeling better though as she's now had a cold for about 8 weeks. She's happy enough but her cough is getting worse and her eyes are awful. She conked out at 6 tonight, very early for her. Hoping we won't now have a 5am wakey wakey!

Right I best go and help DH with the BBQ - first one of 2014!
Hugs all round

So pleased to hear DD is settling in better now net, hope the cough clears up soon bless her!!
Sorry to hear about DS conjunctivitis Sasha, hope it clears up soon and he starts to sleep a bit better.

Hi to everyone else :)

Well I don't really know what has happened to our little happy boy, he has turned into the biggest grump over the past couple of weeks!!! Today we went out for dinner and had to deal with our first mega meltdown tantrum in a restaurant!!! (Kept my cool though!!) wanted to say a few choice words to the people staring though, but kept my cool!!!
Everything just seems to be the end of the world, if he drops a car, crayon etc he has a right old strop about it!!!!
He's also really gone off his food lately, literally eating barely anything and seeming to be quite happy with that! He never seems hungry, never cries for food or anything!! I'm going to give the hv a call tomorrow, he's never been a massive eater but it's getting a bit worrying lately, my dad keeps worrying me saying he might have something wrong with his stomach!!! Way to make me worry even more eh!!!! ;)
He also fights sleep so much now, clearly shattered but just completely fights it!!! We always used to have a cuddle in our bed while he has his milk then he would go sleep and I would take him to bed, but now majority of the time he refuses his milk, and hides at the side of our bed from me then when I do finally persuade him to get on the bed he either just curls up as close to the edge of the bed as possible or clings to me so tight, could he be afraid of going to bed?
This parenting is hard work!! ;)
He just seems to have changed from a lovely little boy into a stroppy teenager!!!!!

Terrible two's really are that... TERRIBLE!!! rotf

Cheenab just a quick post to reassure you the terrible twos have come early in my house, like your ds a lot of simple things become a drama in our house I suppose it's just a phase they go through and we will just have to grin and bare it then look back and laugh once it's all over

Hey.

Net ~ BBQ sounds FAB!! We nearly had to have a BBQ yesterday as went to put the oven on as decided to do some baking and the flippin over wasn't working!!! DH got all excited as he thought it meant he could put the chicken on the bbq! But convinced him to use the little top oven instead lol.
So glad to read DD has settled at Nursery now, she probably will get every cough, cold, bug anything going at nursery for a while but in the end her immune system should be great!!

Right, I best get on to our housing repair people. Not only did my oven start plating up yesterday. I was having a bath and suddenly DH came flying through the bathroom door as water was leaking through the kitchen ceiling!!!! So guess I best see if someone will come out and look at/sort for us!!

He has been on full blown melt down all morning, starting to feel like a really rubbish mummy as I have no clue how to soothe him when he's like that and I find myself getting so annoyed!!!

Ditto cheenab, I have started introducing the 'naughty step'. When he is screaming it depends what it's about - I either ignore it if it's something he's done that he shouldn't or I try and console him whilst he's pushing me awayand screaming at me. I'm thinking it's just a phase. I then run through all the things that he might want - drink food play etcetera. Or I try and distract him. I haven't got it all sorted by any stretch of the imagination...it's so tough. My niece is a few months older and she went through a I will cry and scream all night and day and not make any sense, she has started to communicate more now and she seems to be passing out of this phase now so there is light at the end of the tunnel! My little man was up ever night screaming etc for a few weeks but that has settled down thankfully!!!! Xxx

Thanks Louise, it's so hard to know what to do isn't it. He really doesn't understand most things so I'm not sure if a naughty step would work, I have always done distraction and that has worked up until recently but now even that doesn't seem to help :(
I've left a message with the hv, see if she can suggest anything and also to have a chat about his eating :(

It's probably frustration (that's what the HV told my sil about my niece because she couldn't get a across what she needed/wanted)
I haven't used a naughty step just the principle- time out. It seems to have some reaction but they are still very little but I'm convinced my little munchkin knows exactly what no means! I feel awful though - he knows he has done wrong though because the bottom lip comes out...x

I'm glad I'm not the only one going through this, my mum puts my ds on the floor when he's been bad, I'm not sure how it works but he knows it's because he's been naughty, my ds talks loads but most doesn't make sense so I'm thinking it's frustration more than anything else. Ds has been sleeping rubbish as well :( this being a mummy is so hard going at times

:hi: girlies...

well I definately feel for all you dealing with the terrible 2's!
I often think S is having them early but maybe I wouldn't be so lucky to not get them again in 6 months time! OMG 6 months and that could all start!
Time is flying!! 8|

In relation to S and sleeping - it's cracked :thumbsup:
She finally snapped out of it, and is sleeping soundly again.... Usually 7pm - 7/8am ... But friday she slept in until 8.40am!
And last night she asked to go to bed at 6pm bless her so she did! :sleeping:
Must have had a very exciting energetic day at nursery is all I can guess! ;) : D

And her attitude lately is FAB - absolutely loving her whole persona at the moment!
She's in the cheeky, playful stage (not all the time don't get me wrong she is an absolute terror sometimes & I wanna run away) :pinch:
But 90% of the time at the moment she is a pleasure to be with :thumbsup: : D : D

It might help lately because my OH is off sick from work - so although we are going to be struggling money wise probably, it's really nice him being around every day to help and he is loving spending time with us and we are hardly arguing at all (he used to work away every week and when he came back because we didn't know each other we'd argue) if that makes sense! :|

Hope all you ladies are okay & our little miracles as well!

Cheens - with Z not eating, I know a few kids around his age (a bit older now) who went through this phase, and it does seem to be a phase.
Apparently (and I know it's easier to say it haha) ... they won't starve themselves and will eat when and if they like! He will snap out of it soon and I think some of it is trying to establish authority in situations! It'll be you guiding me in 6 months time ;) ::P

Hello lovely ladies

WMG bab21 congratulations!! How are you feeling? Glad DS is rolling over etc now. I'm afraid my DD didn't sleep through till 11 months and even now wakes up once a night at least 3 times a week. I also long for one of these babies that sleeps!

Amy that's great news about S and the sleeping - also how much fun you are finding her just now. I agree, I am loving DD just now, this is a great age - before the tantrums start haha

Sasha/Louise/Cheenab how are the tantrums going?!

Lynsey how is DS? Hope all the bits in the house got fixed? We often BBQ a whole chicken or even a leg of lamb. Yum! (On one of those kettle BBQs with a lid)

Hello everyone else, how are you all? Long time no posts!

AFM well DD is *still* ill. She's now had conjunctivitis 2 weeks, a cold/cough for about 8 weeks and the past 10 days she has had a dodgy tummy and explosive nappies. Have been soaking a lot of clothes in dettol. I think today things have finally started to get a bit better, but she;s missed 2 weeks of nursery already, dreading tomorrow when she goes back. I think she'll be well enough. But in better news she has well and truly cracked walking and is toddling all over the place now. She is also having a I Love Daddy phase and says Dadda constantly and wants loads of daddy cuddles. Apart from at 3am that is! She has had a lot of bad nappies at about 3am but only mummy will do to sort all of that out. I am so glad I am still breastfeeding as that's the only thing that settles her back to sleep after the tears when we change her nappy. She has awful nappy rash too. Using the good old metanium. Has anyone else's LO had thrush from nappy rash?

Hi everyone :)

Congratulations on your wonderful news WMG :)

Net sorry to hear DD is still unwell, bless her she's not having a good time of it lately is she, fingers crossed warmer weather will bring a more healthier DD :)

Amy so pleased to hear S is sleeping much better, soooo looking forward to seeing you all in a few weeks :D

Well I took Z to see the hv the other day, he weighs 24lb and is 77cm in height, and she said 'technically' he is overweight because of his height!!!! She didn't seem at all concerned she said he looks a lovely size and he was happily running around playing while I was talking to her!!! I went and got him some vitamins like she recommended on the phone and his appetite seems to have increased since he's been having it, she did say that would hopefully be the case, and he also seems a lot more chilled out, even our family's have noticed. He does occasionally have his tantrums but we seem to be able to diffuse it a lot easier!!! Not sure if the vitamins have helped with that. I suppose like us eating certain types of foods etc can effect our moods and if we are tired etc!!!!
I don't mind what it is though, we seem to be getting our happy little chap back!!!! :D

Quick question for any of you mummy's that had a c section...
Has your numbness gone away yet around your scar?! Nearly 2 years on and mine is still completely numb, and just looks horribly saggy ;(
Will the feeling ever come back?!

Hope everyone is doing well xx

Hey Net, My DS ended up with a thrush type thing from his nappy rash (when I said it was bad the other week) I just text my HV she came round that afternoon and prescribed some cream for him that pretty much cleared it up in 2 or 3 days, plus try and keep it as dry as you can.
Hope your DD is better soon bless her and you, it's been going on a long time now. Do you have drops for her eyes?? If you do and she still has it after so long it might be worth seeing if they will give you the ointment its tricky to do and does make the eye look gungier but I think where its so sticky it tends to work better, where as drops can often end up coming straight out.
Anyway DS is loads better now, we had a couple of manic days while his top teeth were coming through and had a temp for a day or two.

So it's little mans first birthday on Monday, so we have a busy few days coming up.
