Safety catches for kitchen cupboard doors with frames

Jensqui - what a great idea about the over door tea towel rail! I have one of those rails but never thought about sliding it accross both doors so that C can't get into them, i will be doing that now though. My dd only seems to be interested in the cupboards containing food (she's just like her father) but you cant be too careful

Moving clinics - should we repeat ultrasound scan and semen test???

Sorry you've had no replies to this so far. At my clinic, any tests, scans etc would only be valid for three months.

Only 17lbs5oz at 14mths and losing weight

Sorry to hear that Flora has been poorly hun, glad she's on the mend now and eating again (nothing wrong with a few choc chip weetabix every now and then!) We've had a similar experience with an out of hours doc before - so frustrating. xx

Braxton hicks, every day, most of the day!

I had them from about 30 weeks with my lo. They can be quite intense at times too can't they? Have you mentioned it to your midwife? If they're worried about it they can hook you to a machine to monitor them for a few hours. They did this with me at about 32 weeks and said that mine were too powerful to be bh and gave me steroids just incase baby was coming.......but then i didn't go into labour until my due date!

The diarrhoea and vomiting bug

How are they now hun? I got the same advice re starving them. I was told that this is only effective in the first 24 hours, so after 24 hours without food they can eat again and it wont make the bug last longer but some foods will irritate the tummy like fatty/spicy stuff. I let my dd have what she fancied eating which was mostly breadsticks......she's sick of the sight of them now, wont touch them now she's over it! Hope they're feeling better now

The diarrhoea and vomiting bug

Awww Blue I know exactly what you're going through hun - it is all still very fresh in mind after my dd had it two weeks ago. For her it lasted ten days and we had to take her to hospital twice on the advice of the lovely nurses i spoke to at nhs direct. She was very dehydrated. It's so hard to see them like that isn't it. The only advice i can give is what was given to me by the doctors: Plenty of fluids with rehydration salts if they will take it. Offer just plain, bland foods whilst they stil...

MMR

Hi Ros, i just wanted to add that the single mumps vaccine is no longer being produced and as far as i am aware, clinics in this country have run out. There are some clinics that offer the other two jabs seperately if you'd prefer this option but obviously your girls wouldn't be protected against mumps. My little one also had the MMR and i have no regrets whatsoever. I did some research and asked around and could find no actual evidence that there was a link to autism.....and she is, of course, ...

A question for all twin mums considering trying again

Quoted from "Ros" p.s. shhhhhh, we have an appointment with my obs consultant (and the man who did my classic section) next month to check if it would be safe for me to carry another baby as I would need another classic c section with increased risk of uterine rupture, scary, but I need to get his opinion. We have told no one ... until now I heard you Good luck hun xx

Does Cyclogest work as well as pregnyl??

Hello Jay and welcome to FZ Pregnyl and cyclogest contain different hormones - pregnyl is HCG and cyclogest is progesterone. I have used both and during an IVF cycle for different stages but the cyclogest was what i used for the 1st few weeks of my pregnancy. So i'm afraid i can't really advise on which is better as it would depend on why exactly your doctor has prescribed them. Did they say that either your progesterone or hcg levels were low? As far as i am aware, it would be the cyclogest tha...

Stockport PCT - suspending IVF treatment!!!!!!!!!

Hello Vikki I'm afraid i dont have any real advice but i have managed to find the clinic's contact details on the HFEA website http://guide.hfea.gov.uk/guide/Overview.…e=67&&s=l&nav=8 Maybe they will be able to advise you on the details of when the suspension of funding was inforced and find out if you got on the list beforehand.

car seats

I'm pretty sure that the besafe one is non-isofix and britax do one as well which we looked at when we went to babyworld. The guy at the showroom was really good at advising us and let us try out different ones in the car while we were there. Once you've taken them away from the shop they wont give a refund so it's a good idea to try them out first.

Ideas & Tips needed for baby hand and foot prints

It's nice isn't it! Yes, i think hobbycraft was actually where i found the book box Jasper and they should sell the model magic stuff in there as well. I used paint from ELC, they do it in squeezy bottles and lots of colours for about £1 each, it's non-toxic and fairly easy to wash off but they prob do a perfectly good one in hobbycraft that you could use. Have a bowl of soapy water on standby for washing the paint straight off hands before it goes everywhere! I'd love to see a pic once it's don...

Ideas & Tips needed for baby hand and foot prints

We used crayola model magic which was much softer than clay and i didn't need to put too much pressure on my dd's hand to get a nice moulding that nicely showed all the lines on her hands. Then i put it into a book-box thing from a craft shop (one of these but i only paid £1 for one http://www.bakerross.co.uk/src/froogle/p…Books-EK306.htm ) then once it had dried i painted it and wrote a poem on the inside cover and decorated the front. Whole thing to make cost about £5. Link not endorsed by FZ ...

The truth about first shoes???

There are also Clarks outlet stores in Bicester village shopping centre near Oxford and Clarks village in Street (near Glastonbury). We have bought dd shoes from there at less than half the prices in normal clarks stores. Got her a gorgeous pair of white leather shoes for £15, think they are last seasons but my dd hasn't complained!
