Was dry - now wetting

Well I switched tack today and instead of asking "do you need the loo?" I asked her if she had checked to see if her knicks were dry. It worked a treat, not one accident all day, I think she felt empowered by it. So much so that she has insisted on going to bed without a nappy . We bought some of those absorb pads and have sneakily put one under her sheet. I think we may be in for a sleepless night though Eeyore, how your GP can not be concerned is beyond me. I hope the ERIC site has given you s...

Was dry - now wetting

Well this coming weekend we are giving the bribery route a try If she can go the whole weekend without accident (and of course if she is a good girl) she will get a scooter. I'm making an appointment for ehr to see the doc in case there is an infection, which I'm ashamed to say I hadn't even considered until I read that website.

Was dry - now wetting

Plum has been dry for near on a year now but for the last month she has reverted almost completely to incontinence (the sort wet and to a lesser degree the messy!). This began when she started going for a couple of mornings a week at nursery, they left her wet one day, she got sore and has subsequently become fearful of sitting down to wee as it may sting. The soreness has long ago passed but the wetting has not. Its almost like we are back at stage one and I just don't know what to do. The thou...

Definitely try again with the avocado. Research shows that it can take anyone 15 tries to really decide if a food is for them or not. Its just a case of becoming accustomed. Apple, thats up to you really. Some people would blanch it for a moment in hot water or in the microwave to soften it and perhaps to stop bits breaking off and potentially choking, others wouldn't bother (me included). The decision really is yours.

Confused

keep it up. That reaction is normal for some babies. Keep offering him his three meals a day and let him set the pace. I really can't recommend baby led enough. Sticks of food that he can pick up himself. If you are going to stick with spoon feeding be sure that you wait until he has finished eating what in his mouth before offering the next spoonful. Imagine how annoying you would find it if somebody waggled the next bit in your face all the time before you were ready!

Silent Reflux - help!

Oh jess this is so distressing, I'm dreadfully sorry. I think the endoscopy may be to check on any weaknesses in his system that may be causing the back flow. I believe reflux can be chemical (stomach acids) or physiological and the second type can require surgery to strengthen things a bit. I'm far from being an expert though so please don not take that as read! If the surgery is required I'm quite sure that he will be good hands and that you will be put at eases although it will probably be ve...

Do you leave your baby outside to sleep?

Definitely, they sleep so well out there! Also our house has a lot of stairs out front which tend the wake them up. So when I've come back from a lwalk with them and they've both fallen asleep in the pram I've let them sleep on the front path but in that instance I've sat with the front door open with my book in my lap My over the road neighbour Margaret watches them while I get a comfy cushion and a cuppa and then I get settled down

Silent Reflux - help!

Quoted Originally posted by Jess6 Thanks everyone, so nice to know im not alone with this. The other 7 babies in my nct group are all 'perfectly content'. Thanks so much ladies xx DD1 had reflux from birth until around ten / 11 months. Not the silent variety, the messy variety. Its horrendous to see your child suffering and really feel for you. Its also difficult when all around you are people with "perfectly content" little ones. My little girl also had no response to the varieties of medicati...

Things they don't tell you about parenting

Thank goodness for that Lexie, I thought it was just me there! I blame me mother, she drummed the Ps&Qs into me too strongly. Its always the mothers fault wouldn't you agree

Baby keeps making herself sick. Any suggestions?

Oh my goodness!Well I've heard it all now, they are genuinely bonkers aren't they. Now, what on earth can be done to stop this? I suppose all you can do is take her hands out of her mouth everytime you can see its too much, but I'm sure you're already doing that so thats not much help.

That you'll find yourself telling your child off to prevent someone else doing it, even though you don't really think they've done anything all that wrong in the first place. Thus making yourself feel like crud.

Maternity units not teaching women how to breastfeed

Those are amazing statistics. surely thats an indicator that the scheme has to be rolled out. I do feel that the breastfeeding education at my local was lacking.

Book recommendations for weaning?

Quoted Originally posted by Bells What's there to read? Give baby food at six months. Wipe down walls and floors. Change clothes twelve times per day (yours and hers). Look happy. Often you can cut out the middleman by buying organic veg, wash it, prepare it into fist sized chunks. Steam it and then tip it straigh into the bin. Hilarious and true! Bubble, I did the baby led approach with DD2 knowing no more than don't bother with mashing. All was great. I just gave Pud exactly what we were havi...

Lack of sleep

Sorry but I haven't got any good news for you. This is par for the course by this stage. The baby is just breaking your will before she makes her arrival! The only thing I can suggest is to take naps whenever you get the chance.
