Any advice on a sunshade for a double nipper 360 ?

There is also this as an option if you want them covering to some degree and are using the Bandz: The original UV Buggy Cover. Link not endorsed by FZ x

Toy recommendations for 7 month old?

LalaZig Household items went down a treat in our house when my Meg was around that age, have a Google Search for Baby Treasure Baskets for ideas but some of our faves were a Tea Strainer, a little mini whisk, a rubber bath plug and a pine cone, we'd put them in a basket and she's sit and explore for ages. We also have faves like the Shape sorters, stacking cups, ring stackers etc. Chicks

Little bit of advice re BLW please!

Would she allow you to put a little yoghurt on the spoon and then put the spoon in her hand for her to "feed" herself? My DD has little moments of independance and that always seems to do the trick for us?

The truth about first shoes???

Mrs J - Another option for you, although not as cheap as eBay is the Clarks shop at Cheshire Oaks, I know a few people that have picked up bargains there! x

Supermarket brand nappies?

Hi Sammie I use Tesco own brand nappies and I really can't fault them, very few leaks and have contained some "horrors" very well. I have also used the AsdaLittle Angels ones and they were also fine, Tesco is just easier for me as I shop there. xxx

Explaining death to a 3 year old

H I think you have dealt with it really well, we used similar words etc with DS when my FIL passed away this year. My DS is older but we go to the cemetary and he understands that Grandad's broken body is there but he also believe's that stars in the sky represent people in heaven and he's often pointing out the brightest stars as Grandad and our pet dog that died when he was tiny. xxx

What's going on with Bobble hair?!

lol bless him, at least he's a boy, my DD was born like that, it started growing on top almost straight away and now at almost 8 months her hair on top is thickening up so you can't really tell.

Baby Monitors

Hi Ros I have the BT 100 Baby Monitor and really can't fault it, it plugs in both ends but the parent unit is also battery so is portable when I need it to be. It is so much better than the one I had for my DS (8 years ago) that wasn't digital and had lots of interferrance.

First train set :-)

All of our Tesco track has the grooves both sides for the train wheels, I think they have copied the brio design so you can use both together - yey! x

Sterilising bottles and other questions!

Hi DM I am planning on sterilising bottles until around 1 year, but go with the flow I guess depending on how she takes to a cup. My DD is good and can indepentantly hold her own bottle, I started by letting her grip my finger and then moving it next to the bottle so her hands were getting used to being in the right place IYKWIM. I have tried her with several cups for water but the only one she can master is a Nuby first cup, it has handles at the side and a soft spout so similar to a teat feel ...

First train set :-)

Mavis If you want a slightly cheaper version of the wooden train set then Tesco do their own brand version - £10 for a 56 piece set, we have had this for DS and it has lasted years. Usually the wooden sets are all the same size too so if you like a certain Happyland bridge or something then they should fit. xxx

Hi Jen I can't say whether it is good or not but I spotted a Lindam version of Babydan is a magazine at the weekend and they do a lightweight version of it too. x

Baby sleeping most of day and not much at night?? Hates his moses basket too! Advice please

Another thing we did with the Moses Basket was put a large fleece blanket on the bottom, tucked in so it couldn't come loose, it wasn't a thick fluffy one but M just preferred to be snuggled on that rather than a standard sheet? The only thing to be careful about is babies temp if the weather is very warm but we never really had a problem with it. x

Eye tests

Hi Clare My DS has also been through all of what Bells has described above, we have now finished patching and he is just being monitored, he has gone from having 20% vision in one eye to virtually normal sight (with glasses). His school eye test came back as normal and thankfully a teacher picked up his sitting very close to work etc, so although I fully understand that you are concerned because of DH it is a good thing that he has been picked up and will be checked in depth. As Bells said above...

Midland based clinics - how should we choose and what is your experience?

Hi I have had several tx's now at Coventry and have had nothing but positive experiences there, there are some nurses nicer than others and one consultant is more personable but thats just my opinion. I also like the fact that now I am pg I have remained under the same consultant so have also had consistency there but maybe that won't apply to you as I guess Warwick will be your nearest for maternity care? I do know of others that were not happy there so I do think everyone has different experie...

I'm asking for recommendations on weaning bits and bobs

Hi PM When LO is moving on from Ice Cubes to Pots there is no need to buy the Expensive Weaning Pots that you can get from Baby Catalogues etc, I got all mine for DS from a Pound Shop, thats usually a pack of about 10 little pots with lids, then just bought some cheap stickers from a stationery shop and labelled them myself. xxx
