problem with nursery - help please!

hello all thanks so much for the replies! Tomorrow is the first day in the bigger children's room, but over the last few weeks I have seen that they seem to be quite fluid about moving the kids across the various rooms anyway, and the littlebits have been talking about 'Wise Owls' quite a bit anyway, so dont think it will be distressing to them at all. Knew that I would get reassurance on here though you didnt fail, hugely Now if I could just find the spade that will digs us out ...

problem with nursery - help please!

Hi all I haven't been on here for ages I'm sorry, but have a little issue and I know that you guys will help me out. The twins are in a nursery that they love on a Tues and Wed, and my parents have them on a Thurs. My folks are going away for most of Nov and back at the start of the summer I told the nursery and agreed with the nursery manager that they could do an extra day a week for the whole of Nov. Something today prompted me to call and double check this with it coming up so soon, and I ha...

flat head syndrome

hi there havent posted on here for ages but do lurk occassionally and felt I had to reply as this was something that caused me huge distress! I have twins and Hollie was squashed by Tomas in the womb and as a result was born with a pretty wonky head. we took her to a cranial oesteopath which did work wonders, but the best advice I got ( from here..!) was to buy a Goi Goi pillow. We used it in her moses basket, pram, rocker and then bought her a bigger one for her cot. She is now two and her head...

advice on sleeping please

hi there sounds like you are doing a fab job. Were the girls early? My two were 5 weeks and they seemed to sleep loads and I was told premmies often do...make the most of it is all I can say now with hindsight! All we did was get them used to settling by themselves after a feed and distinguish between night and day..all things you sound like you are doing. My two dropped the 10pm feed around 14 weeks, and started to stretch the day feeds to every four hours and continues this way for quite some ...

Bottle feeding twins at the same time!

hi there My two are now 21 months and I havent posted on here for ages it seems, but I had to reply to you! I was exactly the same but bought some fab Chicco bouncers that you can alternate the height on so they can be very upright. They would sit in these with me on the floor in the middle and I would alternate winding them. Same when we were out in the buggy - would put them to the upright position to feed them. I did it together from about 12 weeks I think, and up till then I did feed them se...

eye test

Hi hun Hollie had the same thing in Feb and we are going for a re check on Fri. She thought it was all really funny - her eye turns out when she is tired and looks up, like she is taking a split second longer to focus, but only every now and again. They said on the first visit it could be a latent squint, but because A wont be able to tell them what he can and cant see, dont be surprised if they ask you to go back in 6 months. Always best to get it checked out though. Rosie xx

hi hun yep, we had this, and after a bout of teething or being poorly we have it again, I find it so much easier to just go in at 3am, but I know that a few nights of toughing it out and they are back on track. Is very hard though, especially as I feel we nailed the sleeping business ages ok!!

disgusting nappies???

hi all just a quickie, T over the last week has been waking with the most disgusting nappies ever...all over his vest and grobag each morning. Nothing has changed in his diet, and no signs of current teething - any ideas? Many thanks Rosie xxx

Anyone with a BFP's from FET please tell me!

hi all Sorry, I dont post here very much these days but thought it was important to reply. I have got the most adorable twins, Tomas and Hollie, who are now 17months old, from a medicated FET cycle following a fresh IVF cycle that failed. I sat in the consultants room and argued with him that there was no point in going for the FET and I should skip to the next fresh go, and he convinced me to do it. I had 6 embryos that were frozen and took the advice to thaw them all so that they could put bac...

feel so bad...

Hi Elmo Just wanted to echo what everyone else has said...and with two you only have one pair of hands, believe me it will not be the last however good your intentions are! Hollie fell off my bed and both me and my mum were less than half a foot away from her! Please dont beat yourself up about it, you are doing a fab job. Rosie xx

seperation anxiety?

hey Caz Just a quickie as I am in work, but we are exactly the same. Days they are nursery - nightmare in the evening. Most nights I have to sot on the floor so they can see me and then they go off. Think it is the seperation, but I am gutted as bedtime has always been so easy with them! Hope A is still doing ok in nursery, Rosie x

Development worries

Hi Sunshine Sorry I don't get on her much these days, but wanted to reply to you. My two were 5 weeks early and Hollie is def behind T and they are now 13 months old, and they are both behind my NCT chums babies. H only just started to crawl and I think recently starting nursery has accelerated that. No interest in standing up, floppy legs, stands on tiptoes etc. Smiley girl, no words or even mama or dada but lots of babbling. In some things she is very smart like brushing her own hair and roari...

Nappy Rash

aww Sharon, H had the exact same thing last week. I took her to the docs as it happenned so quickly and we have been so lucky in that she has never had nappy rash before. Her skin was broken and even bled a bit. Anyway, doc said that metanium was the best out there and would be what they would prescribe. We did use it and within a few days it cleared so quickly. She also said like everyone here has to keep the nappy off as much as possible and avoid tight fitting clothes etc. Poor EM, big hugs. ...

stair gates

can't believe we have reached the stage of needing these already! Have seen the Kiddyguard one which works like a roller blind, but read mixed reviews - anyone got any advice? Many thanks! Rosie xx

Hi Toffee Sounds like Ria is doing just fine. My two were 5 weeks early and did sleep loads early on. Does change though and seems to happen overnight! As Chilli suggests you might want to 'encourage' her routine a little bit - my two did get their night and day a bit confused so we basically kept them very active for a few hours in the morning, and then in the afternoon, then very early evening and they soon got into that themselves. Babies do most of their growing and developing when they slee...

Daytime Naps

hiya I am afraid this response will probably not help, but my two wake at 7ish, and then go back at 9 for an hour. Then they go back again at 12.30 till about 1.45-2pm, and then bed at 6.45. They really need their sleep and in nursery haven't seemed to have mastered it, so three days a week they only have 30 mins sleep all day! So, we then play catch up for 4 days a week at home. I asked my HV and she said 16-18months usually to drop one, but then the midday one becomes a good two hour sleep. I ...

can we come and play with the big children?

my two monkeys are now one, so feels right that we should ship over to this board. Can't believe a year has gone by already! Have the massive party planned for tomorrow - seemed such a good idea when I was still on maternity... Looking forward to catching up on all your little ones news! Rosie, Hollie and Tomas xxx
