OMG!!! She climbed out of her cot

T twists his sleeping bag around so much that he has problems standing up in his cot most days. It makes for an hilarious sight whe he attempts to reach up for daddy

Phil & Teds?

Neighbours of my parents have a Phil and Teds and have found it really good. The thingy you put the baby in takes a bit of getting used to and it is snuggly so one needs to be careful not to over wrap the babe if going to somewhere warm like a shopping centre. On the link posted you show the lime green version. In the flesh it's REALLY loud and it does show stains more then - say - red or navy. I also think the link makes the 2 occupants look further apart than they ever seem when I've see Phil ...

Morning and evening milk - what cup?

T still has a bottle on occasion and we normally use the Avent bottle with a spout for milk drinks - spout exactly the same as the Magic Cup spout. This is because he likes milk a little warm and Avent bottles are safe to put in a pan of boiled water to warm up. Likewise the NUK soft spout cup that has removable handles so that the bottle part can be warmed. T won't drink juice, so milk or water are his tipples. We've tried cups and open topped beakers, but he's a bit messy still and doesn't con...

soft boiled eggs

Does anyone know when soft boiled eggs are allowed? The seniors have been telling me I should be giving T (2 yrs and 6 days) soft boiled eggs.

Any chairs instead of bouncers???

T used to snooze on his lamb fleece and still crashes out on the squashy sofa at grandma and grandpa's. However, the latter has to be supervised as he can roll in his sleep and it's a long wa down.

too good to be true?

I didn't see T until the Sun afternoon following an Sat eve birth. It was Tues before I persuaded them I could start expressing after complicated birth and HELP syndrome preeclampsia. Despite tube feeding we got into the swing of things quite quickly once the tube was out and we got home. He used to sleep a lot but I never needed to wake him for a feed. He'd feed for ages and ages - half an Inspecor Morse video - and regularly fed for 40 mins up to 10 months. They all have their different needs ...

Stopping at 1 year

T was an ace breast feeder until about 10 months, then he slowly began to get very distracted and distractable. We'd gone down to one breakfast feed by the time he was 12 months and he seemed to want to give it up more than I did. For a while we carried on with Nutriprem as his formula milk, but once we'd made the switch to cow's milk I wondered why I'd bothered faffing around with formula after he was 12 months as he didn't really need to carry on with it until he was 'age adjusted' 12 months. ...

Chapped bottom

Still quite red, but much improved and not as painful when touched. I've stuck with that Sudocrem so far, but have some Bepanthen to hand. Sunday shops couldnt provide any other options.

How often do you bath your child?

We bathed T twice a week from 1-4 months (he was in hospital for his first month) and then every other day for about another month. We'd just graduated to every day when he had his hernias done so it felt funny to have to pause for 5 days after the op. He only skips a bath now if he is too tired to have one and nods off in his highchair after supper and an exhausting day at nursery.

Chapped bottom

T has got a chapped bottom for the second time in a fortnight. He's never really suffered from nappy rash or sore bum to this degree before. Have always used Sudocrem. Seems to be taking a while to take effect this time - it's been 24 hrs. Any ideas on alternative treatments?

Tumbling tots

Master T fell over at nursery He has a red bump and surounding bruise in the middle of his forehead. He's taken it really well, but it's the first time he's hurt himself like that and I feel all protective and want to hug my baby

Master T has had croup for a week and a bit. I took him to doc and she said no treatment unless it gets worse. It's getting better, but he still purrs a bit and has a lslight cough. Anyone got any experiences of dealing with croup? I've been told prematurity can be a factor, but he's nearly 2 and it's the first time he's had it, so I'm not sure that factors in.

When do you wean?

I weaned T at 6 months. He was breast feeding very frequently but not showing any other signs of needing food. One HV said to wait until 6 months adjusted age and the other said he needed food. We never looked back. He wasn't keen on baby rice but loved apple puree right from the start. He still likes it now he's spoon feeding. I don't bother making my own puree now though. I usually have some Hipp Stage 1 Apple and Pear Pudding in, it's a brilliant way to get him to have some Calpol if he's got...
