Totally with you! The ones that have me most bemused are when the "shortened" name is longer than the original. I have heard one rationalisation that may have its merits. I'll use your example of ...

The only suggestion I would have to try and balance out the supply would be to maybe only feed from the left breast one in every three feeds instead of every second. As far as the leaking goes, I ...

BizBizMarite replied to topic Sick and tired of no twin trollys. Is any one else

The Multiple Birth Coordinator at my hospital suggested we speak to our local shop about the twin trolleys. Often they hide them so that those who don't need them can't grab them. She had an arrang...

BizBizMarite replied to topic Flying with a 2 year old?

If you are wanting to restrain your toddler more than with the aircraft's lap belt, you can get your car seat put onto the seat. I will probably be doing this next time I fly with DD1, only 2 next ...

DD1 is 20 months older than DDs 2 & 3 (6 minutes apart for them). They are now 2 and 3 1/2 months. My advice is to involve the first born as much as you can. Perhaps a little easier for me than wi...
