I have started using the Watties "Simply Create" for 9 months plus. They are sachets of meat and sauce that you add to home cooked veges. A great compromise. Up until a couple of weeks ago I mad...

Tell me about it! You could be describing my DS. What I hate is that he has all the symptoms but where are the teeth? His bottom two came through at 8 months but since then nothing. However, he...

Yes it was useful. Have you tried your local library? I know that copies exist in both NZ and Australian libraries and if your library does not have it- get them to interloan it for you. This is...

Hi there, Katem's point that every baby is different is true. She has had success on S26 but I know a lot of babies who do not handle it well at all. It is the same for any formula, you often ha...

henrys_mum replied to topic age for 1 sleep a day?

What is a 'normal' amount of sleep at this age though? No baby is the same. I have asked both my sisters who have 6 children between them (aged from 11-26) and all were on one day sleep by the 9 ...

henrys_mum replied to topic age for 1 sleep a day?

DS currently goes to sleep at 11.30am. He usually sleeps 1.5-2 hours but it varies- he may do more or less. He starts showing tired signs a little earlier than 11.30 but if he goes down too early...

henrys_mum replied to topic Khalua & Milk = Sleep, is this true mums?

I am sorry but that is terrible advice. Your babys liver can not handle alcohol. I know this is the type of advice given out many, many years ago but we have moved on since then. I suspect it wo...

There is a great book called "The wonder weeks", I think all your answers would be in this but it is not easy to find. Check at your local library and ask for them to interloan it if they don't ha...
