Hallooooooooooooooo!

Hi Everyone! (or at least those that remember me!) Just dropped in to say "hi" and hear all your latest from those still here that remember me! Update on meS1 (Peter Poppet) is now almost 5 - imagine that! gosh, what a long way we've come. DS2 (JJ) will be 4 (!) in July. He's doing really well. He still is prone to lung infections, but apart from his size you would never guess he was such a premmie! We're still living overseas and the boys are at pre-school and loving it. In fact, I'm sure if th...

constantly falling over

Bells/Missy - nope, but his hand/eye co-ordination is very good except for the falling over bit - weird! Saying that he is left-footed at football but right-footed at climbing stairs.... I wonder if that is the cause? Rose - good idea.

Sleeping advice

3-5 nights of hell of being calmly insistent and consistent in her sleeping where you really want her to sleep will sort it out

feeling sad

thanks ladies - it was a really tough decision to make as I really wanted to be there, but I did have to think of the children. thankfully DH is flying home this evening, so things will be a bit better. I'll always feel guilty for not going though.

Was dry - now wetting

we're going through that now - PP has suddenly started wetting at night again (might be because daddy isnt here this week) and also during daytime goes "uhoh - I've done a weewee in my pants"

rash

if it goes when the glass is on it, and doesnt look like blood blisters or purple dots, then I would say it sounds like a viral rash. Has G had a cold or sniffle recently? If yes, then it more than likely is a viral rash - it happens when the body overreacts to the virus and the immune system shows up by overcompensating causing a rash. Alternatively, it could be an allergy. How is he generally apart from the rash?

problem biter

yup - we used bottom step as the naughty step. (it gets worse when they have younger brother who annoys them EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! ) consistency is the key. we've had to have words with our nanny to make sure she follows through with what we do. how much of an emotional child is he? JJ couldnt give a toss if I sound upset or even cry (he has given me a black eye once from hurling a fire engine at my face), whereas PP bursts into tears if I even look sad.... each child is different. what works for ...

Clamp on the Table High Chair thingys

TripTraps are great, but bulky and expensive. Our two year old is still in a conventional high chair. Our three year old sits on a booster seat thing that attaches to the chair.

What do i need to pack for babies

I'd find out about clothing. My hospital didnt provide any (I donated all of mine to the hospital afterwards). I found with all the tubes and wires that ones that were button up down the front - rather than pulling over the head - were the best, and mothercare's range is very good there. You may want to get your own breastpump - I would recommend the electronic Avent Double / Duo versions, and milk containers, and also bring a steriliser - those microwave bag ones are fab. The hospital may have ...

Silent Reflux - help!

If it is a milk intolerance and it is a bad one then you may want to switch to a completely milk free (soy, or rice) formula. My eldest tried one bottle of the Neocate as it is meant to be hypo-allergenic but all it is is brokend own cows milk to make it easier to absorb. Doesnt really help if you are allergic to cows milk itself! He was/is allergic rather than intolerant and blew up like a balloon from the reaction - very scary! You may want to ask the cons if it is worth trying before you go t...

Aherm, willy issues!

Yup - same fears. No 1 had a whopper schlong (still does) No 2 (also premmie) had one no bigger than 1cm for a very very long time. At almost 2 years old it is starting to look in proportion but at around 1 year I was very worried and took him to a consultant paediatrician who told me "yes it is on the small side but not small enough that I would worry about it" It has grown to what I would call "normal looking" / proportional now.

Do you leave your baby outside to sleep?

god - I would never leave a child in a car - even in the UK without the engine running the temperature can rise to suffocating levels very quickly. 3 years olds also have habits of disengaging handbrakes, engaging central locking etc. I've once had to supervise a child whilst my husband drove a distraught mum back to her house to pick up the spare keys after her 3 year old locked her out of the car.
