Breast and bottle for 6 months now just bottle
Cot and cuddles on the weekend
Walk and Drive
Go with the flow
Contolled crying a couple of times, breaks my heart
Both shower and bath, he loves both!
Wiggles i think, Hi - 5 drives me Batty!!

Smacking only if dangerous eg power points etc i figure electric shock would hurt more than a growl and smack on hand from Mum.
Homemade most of the time, Brought if going out.


BREAST OR BOTTLE? Breast weaned at 1 year old
COT OR CO SLEEPING? cot since day 1
CONTROLLED CRYING? have done but don't need to anymore
WIGGLES OR HI-5? He isnt overly interested but loves to dance
SMACKING? only as a last resort

It is so interesting to read what other people think and do with their babies it really does show how different we all are and so are our babies!!!!!!!
