Carrie_N started new topic Training pants recommendations please

Hi there, I'd like to get some training pants of the non-disposable variety (don't think I can afford to go through as many as I think I need to). Any advice on a good brand that doesn't leak too...

Carrie_N started new topic Ideas on toddlers taking their medicine??

I suspect this might just end up a bit of a communal complaint rather than a source of any useful advice I have a sick nearly 2 yo who basically has had the novelty worn off having any medicine...

You know, I've just stopped fretting about it. She went through a few days of eating nearly nothing except breakfast and then started eating again for a few days and has backed down again. I'm ju...

Sorry, this is a long and rambly post... I basically had a window of about 8wks (when she was around 8mo) when my now 14mo would eat anything I gave her. She steadily started losing interest in f...

Carrie_N replied to topic Medela Personal Fit Breastshield... does anyone know how to pick which size??

Cindy, that's a shame. Yeah, 9 months and on food starts to take over anyway. You've done really well. I went on the mini pill (progesterone only... is that the same one you're on?) and it didn'...

Carrie_N replied to topic Medela Personal Fit Breastshield... does anyone know how to pick which size??

Ok, the verdict. It appears that despite the fact the XL looks like the "correct" fit, the L seems to work very slightly better. I seem to have bumped up a little in what I express as well. It's...

Carrie_N replied to topic too distracted to feed...

Yup... same here. Actually it was to the point where I got yelled at if I put her sideways. It did pass but it was gradual. I was feeding her in a darkened room and made sure she was fed as soon...

Carrie_N started new topic How do you cook up veg for finger food?

Hi there, My bub is nearly 11 mths old and I'd like to give her vegie sticks as finger food. My problem is I don't seem to have the knack in cooking these up. They are either too firm or too sof...

Yes, it is pretty funny. It's strange though, since giving birth, getting breastfeeding established with some help from midwives and being in front of your other breastfeeding friends your boobs s...

Carrie_N replied to topic Medela Personal Fit Breastshield... does anyone know how to pick which size??

Hi Cindy, I've decided (after a lot of putting things near my nipples that have a diameter of 30mm or 25mm -- it's all I could find!) that I'll have a go with the L (27mm). I'll post here with th...

Carrie_N replied to topic Medela Personal Fit Breastshield... does anyone know how to pick which size??

I totally understand your frustration. The only reason I even thought to look into it further was because a friend of mine has the opposite problem (too small for the M size that comes with the pu...

Carrie_N replied to topic Medela Personal Fit Breastshield... does anyone know how to pick which size??

I've managed to find a little more info on some US sites. They recommend that if your erect nipple (like it is during feeding) is the same size as a quarter then go the L size and if it's bigger t...

Carrie_N started new topic Medela Personal Fit Breastshield... does anyone know how to pick which size??

Hi there, I have a Medela breastpump and I suspect that the standard breastshield might be too small for me. Problem is, how do I work out which of the larger sizes (L, XL, XXL) I need? The only...

Same.. she gets dressed standing. It has become a 2 parent job. Stuffs me how single parents get through this! She went through this at almost every nappy change (except the first one in the mor...

Hi there, Just wanting to offload and hoping that someone else out there has copped the same thing (so I feel normal). My baby girl is 9 months old and for probably the last week with increasing ...

Carrie_N replied to topic My bubby is getting HUGE!

My friend's babies (she's had 3 now) are the same. They get to 10kg really quick and then seem to back off the food again. She breastfeeds her bubs so is completely reassured that they aren't over ...

Same problem here as well. And I have a baby (7mths) that shoves EVERYTHING in her mouth... except food. I gave her a rusk one day and she shoved it straight in her mouth and ate bits of it (after...
