When was your child dry at night?

hi having mixed twins - i can testify girls seemed to have evolved a better bladder, Girl 1 is watertight, only wets the bed if she is ill, and then tries to change it as she is distraught. Son no 1 uses pajama pants ( boots, supermarket own), I generally take him to the pp pot when i go to bed but I have noticed he can wee from 1 hour in to 3 hours. Tbh he doesn't seem that bothered. I think it's one of those things that is indicative off male behaviour throughout life, Sleep any where in any m...

Routine's with twins and general questions! - help please!

Hi from memory - and it seems a long time ago now - the first 3 months were v tough. The only thing that helps is drawing up list of stuff - cleaning, cooking , etc and outsourcing as much as possible. Even with perfectly behaved twins that aare in a routine - one is bound to catch a cold, start to teeth etc - plus somedays they drink more than others Get someone in to help out and ensure you get a bit of sleep.....

A religious/moral dilemma with OH's family

Hi I have seen this happen through a couple of friends - and it is tough. My friend stuck to his guns and has been disowned by his father ( christian ) for marrying a Muslim lady. My thoughts are that whichever deity you choose to follow, or adhere to , that choise should be of your own free will. Coercian, bribery, etc iinvalid the free will principle. The whole will thing is a bit of a fallacy. In attempting to Bribe you, what do they hope to gain. Having recently written a will, the advisor e...

how can we feel safe sending our children to nursery!!

hi I have not been on FZ for a while but this post set me thinking - and I wondered how much of the Media reaction is to a perceived risk - and how much of the danger at nursery is real. So I looked up the NSPCC website. For children suffering abuse in 1% is by a parent or carer and 3 % is likely to be a family relative or stranger. Very few children (less than 1%) experienced abuse by professionals in a position of trust, for example a teacher, religious leader or care/social worker. Hope that ...

Passport for baby

Just to echo what Lexie and Eeyore have said. We got out the digital camara and laid them on a white sheet - took photos and then took the SD card into the photo shop and they printed the best ones off for us - very hard to get a child not smiling when you want it to to be serious ! I think the Passport office will give you a little latitude,,

Petition to Oxfordshire PCT

Suggest you try and post a notice at the JR Ideally the 4th floor notice board - Given the PCT only allows one assisted cycle - I think you will find a consensus with your view. Cheeky but worth a try K

In the Night Garden

our two love ITNG - to the degree we have the books and toys - it really calms them down - and they try and climb round the back of the TV to see where Daisy and ninky nonk have gone. The DVD is ace if you want two hours of peace.

Grobag questions????

Quoted Originally posted by mrsjasper I've been wondering about this. I love grobags but the arms aren't covered which bothers me, I couldn't sleep like that, but Mooch seems comfy which is what matters. We put more layers on underneath when it goes really cold, so a long sleeve vest under a babygro or pyjamas. We have no success with blankets as Mooch ends up at one end of the cot and the blanket at the other! i agree with Mrs J - long sleeved tops seem the way forward, out two love their grow...

Double Buggy on the tube

hi We took the Ts into town on a couple of occasions - and avoided the tube - Most of the stations do not have list access the distances in Central london are relatively close - 15 mins walk can get you around - and we jumped in a taxi when it was needed. I am sure there are brave souls that would do it - but I wouldn't and especially not at rush hour !

Nappy bin

Quoted Originally posted by Missy Lol! I think I'll go with the general consensus and just get a small lidded bin for the front room then! I know it seems ever so lazy and our bin isn't all that far away, but I do remember the endless trips outisde!! If it saves me getting up 5 times and I only have to empty it once a day that would make life alot easier I think! xxx Tesco make scented nappy bags - Which seems any extravagance and probably contributes to landfill - but hey it beats the smell of...

medised question

ah I see I cannot be trusted to administer the correct dose of medised - but I can be trusted to administer the correct dose of Parcetamol or Ibuprofen ( which makes me sick and I am er cough 40) remember this now - from March cheers E. I think the Gp mentioned that Medised had a decongestant - which is why it was useful. Oh well back to rosemary Camomile, cloves and lemon - Matthew eats lemons raw - perhaps he is self medicating. Or reacting to the lemon refresher he absorbed during pregnancy.

medised question

was a tad surprised when I popped in to a Boots to get some medised and was quizzed by pharmacist as to twins age. (15 months now ) She declined medised as she was not advised ot give it to under two year olds! I am sure even our GP and 99% of our friends have used it from 6 months on ! Have the rules suddenly changed. Pretty sure you can buy it off the shelf in tescos... confused k
