For my four year old its swings. For my five year old its lego friends.
Just looking at enrolling our 2nd child in daycare. To have a 1 year old & 3 year old in daycare is about $450. I know other places even more than this. What is everyone else paying?
I have a 4week old & im about to throw in the towel breast feeding. I have gone from one extreme to another- had mastastis then not enough milk, Ive had blisters (still do) & cracked nipples & then got breast feeding thrush (which Id never even heard of) OMG the pain- feels like im being stabbed deep inside my boob/back each feed,now also got shooting pains in my elbow/arm. I have had cream from my midwife for a week & STILL in agony & not gone. My son has got drops even though hes not showing symptoms just to be safe- I googled & am doing everything I possibly can. Taking probiotics, washing my hands a million times a day, changing breast pads every single feed (which is alot) washing my nipples before & after feed with water & vinegar solution. I am now missing a chunk of nipple & I just cant see the light at the end of the tunnel... I REALLY want to breast feed my son any advice would just be so so appreciated, i feel like a failure, my husband...
Hi all, Has been ages since I've posted on here. With the same dramas as last Christmas I am wondering what everyone else does regarding having to see two families Christmas Day?
So with my baby being due in a bout a week and a half, naturally I'm getting a bit impatient and wondering if she'll come early, late, or on time. I'm hearing a lot of "first babies usually come late", but I'm just curious - how true is that statement? When did everyone's first baby come in relation to their due date? Would be interesting to hear!
Am I the only crazy mother whos ds has 30 jumpers and 20 pairs of pants ?! I could not do washing for almost a month and he would still have clothes to wear ! Im thinking it's time to do a cull or is this normal lol
Hi, I'm 38 weeks pregnant and am looking for some great ideas/recipes to make now that I can freeze to make things easier when bubs arrives and time is limited. Also I am keen to know what you store meals in, in the freezer and that you make them in? I bought some of those tin foil pans, but not completely sure if you can freeze them. So what do people freeze thier lasagnes, quiches, soups, stir fris etc etc in? Also when it comes to eating them do you just whip them in the oven to heat through? Thanks any ideas on record, freezer storage ideas as above etc, appreciated. Thanks
hello, I was just wondering what all you mummys do when your little one is still at home? apart from cleaning, shopping and general house stuff what else do you do?
Hi everyone So I am now 13 weeks pregnant with a healthy bubba, when I had my first appointment with the midwife at 12w she recommended me getting a pap smear cause I've never had one. Are there any benefits to it besides finding out if I have cervical cancer? As in will it detect anything that could be harmful to my baby? I've already been tested for Hep B & C, rubella, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, MSSU, HIV, FBC, and Antibodies and all is good there. I had a bit of bleeding at the start of my 12th week but it went away quickly and it seems to have been nothing to worry about. I've also had 2 miscarriages in the past. So I'm just a little worried and want as little intervention as possible. Thanks in advance for anyone's advice
Hi All, My name is Kim and I live in Brisbane. I'm 37 and will be starting IVF / ICSI in a few weeks time at Springwood Fertility Clinic. My partner has sperm antibodies as a result of a vasectomy which was done 10 years prior. As the days go on and the actual IVF/ICSI journey draws closer, my emotions are turning from excitement to anxiety. I still feel excited about what 'may be' but am quite stressed about the egg retrieval procedure. The procedure will be done while I am awake (they call it twiglight sedation). I will be given valium (which I have not had before) prior to the procedure and gas during the procedure. I am reeealllly hoping to make contact with someone on this forum who had their egg retrieval procedure done via twilight sedation. I am hopeful that having the opportunity to talk to others about their experiences will alleviate some of my anxiety....that's assuming it wasn't traumatic! Look forward to hearing from someone (anyone!) s...
