I had it put in last week, have a very nasty bruise on my arm from it and it did hurt but it's getting better now. Doesn't seem to have affected DS' feeding at all. I figure $35 for 3 years is a bargain and I'm hoping it works for me. I got periods every 2 weeks on the mini pill and was lucky to never get a period on the depo shot (was on that for 18mths) so have to wait and see how this one affects me.

Both DD's had black curly hair when they were born but it soon fell out after birth and took AGES to grow - DD1 is light brown and only really started to grow quickly the last 12 months, she's 6, DD2 is snow white blonde and at 4 it's shoulder length. DS was born with a full head of brown hair but has managed to keep it at 6 weeks, it's nice to have a bubba with hair
HAPPYiFEEL wrote: thanks for these awsome advice! i did some research on moo goo products and i am so impressed with how natural everything is and it doesnt seem as costly as Gaia products! the oatmeal baths sound really nice also. Does anyone make their own baby wipes? as in just using cloths, and water? Im thinking of doing it this way as it will also probably save on $$$, but i was wondering if this would be a messy thing to do when going out to peoples houses and such, any suggestions on this when going to peoples houses or out? Thanks heaps smile smile I use cloth wipes. To wet them I just use a spray bottle with water and tea tree oil (antibacterial) and just wipe. I also use modern cloth nappies so they just go in the wash with the nappies. When out I just have a little bottle of water and wet a wipe as I need it and put in a waterproof bag until I get home.
I'm using oats to give DS an oat milk baths - no nasties, no chemicals, no lotions or oils required after. We used J & J once or twice and his skin started to flake. I've got eczema and DD1 had it as a baby so I'm trying to go as natural as possible, cheaper too. Wipes are just cloths with water and tea tree oil and cornflour for nappy rash (haven't had to treat any yet).
I use reusable breast pads - you need to look for bamboo ones with pul (just google it)- they will be the most absorbant and won't leak, don't bother with anything that is cotton (like avent) they will leak and they are small and thick so very obvious through clothes. Mine only leak if the nipple isn't quite in the right spot during let down or overnight if I'm squashing them
I love christmas present threads I just started thinking about my list the other night actually, stocking fillers are will be new textas and stationery etc since my kids tend to eat this stuff, new drink bottles for school - DD2 is starting school next year so a new backpack, possibly new lunch boxes, sunglasses I don't want to go overboard with toys this year since both girls still have birthday presents in their boxes from June floating around so maybe 1 toy and 1 educational thing - last year I went overboard and got too caught up in the shopping and I didn't even hit the wow factor :/ DS will probably get an over the head toy hanger thing .. I'll be watching out for suggestions to give family though, not that I understand why they ask because half the time I'll suggest something and it's ignored anyway. Not feeling very inspired for my nieces, nephew and friends kids atm..
Curious question, if one parent doesn't have any kids and one does, would they get $3k or $5k you reckon? or would it come down to the mother only? Wondering if it would work like the first home owners grant.
I would probably give about 150ml. How have you frozen it? I freeze mine in icecubes so doesn't take long to defrost more if needed. Hate to waste any of it.
Is there a bolt to attach the seat to? The reason I ask is my DH had a single cab ute for work and it didn't have a bench seat just the 2 front seats and we could only put an unanchored foam booster in the front for then DD1 (who was over 3 and over 18kg so legal) so just curious There are some slim line carseats available like sns compaq - you can go to some baby shops and ask to try the carseat in your car before buying and then you can see if you can fit in as well
DD1 - 6 days - c-section, private hospital DD2 - 5 days - c-section, private hospital DS - 2 days - c-section, public hospital I was very shocked to be sent home after 48 hours of having DS I could've stayed 1 more day because when he finally got looked over they found he'd lost more than 10% of his weight (I could've told them why, due to being sleepy and not feeding properly because of the major pain killers I was on) except I was told I'd be a boarder and not entitled to any medical supervision or pain relief and he would be given formula to try and get his weight up (they had refused to let me express colostrum) I told them to where to go and that I was going home and taking my baby with me!
