As an infant teacher, the VERY best gift from parents is them taking the time to write in a card and say thank you and acknowledge the work they have done with your child. I have gotten loads of ...

1. Baby panadol turned out to be the most useful present. My friend is a pharmacist and gave me a little emergency pack. It was so great to have that little bottle in the cupboard the first time ...

My bub was 3rd percentile when she was born. At 20 weeks all was good but by 26 weeks she has dropped to 5th percentile and my OB was worried. I had twice weekly CTGs and weekly scans and OB chec...

I had stacks of braxton hicks from as early as 18 weeks or so. At 35 weeks I was having an internal exam and my OB got all excited and asked if my braxton hicks had become regular because I was 3c...

When BFing everything is pretty much normal with periods! My period returned 6 weeks after DD was born and has continued every month (I was quite disappointed really!). I am fully BFing and althou...

Mum_of_JJ replied to topic Is it okay to let a 3 month old 'Cry it Out'?

Well this one is an emotive topic!! I had a sleep consultant round to help me out because at 4 months my DD was taking 4 hours to get to sleep at night. If it works for you, who cares, do whateve...

Mum_of_JJ replied to topic gluten and dairy free

I am sorry, that's really tough! I am lactose intollerant so I substitute milk for soy and butter/marg for nuttlex and that allows me to make a lot of stuff. The gluten is beyond me, sorry. Have...

Mum_of_JJ replied to topic TEETHING ADVICE DESPERATELY NEEDED!

I'm a skeptic on the teething thing. I know some bubs have problems with teeth but I say if you can't see the tooth, that's not the problem. White lumps on the gums are probably calcium pearls (us...

I had stacks of braxton hicks. It took me ages to work out what I was feeling but they started around 16 weeks and I had them regularly. Towards the end they were damn near constant!! Never painf...

Also not sure what you are after but if you are interested in the placenta, go to Youtube and do a search for 'The placenta Lady'. It's a fascinating watch. After your delivery, ask the midwife (o...

Also with all that our bodies go through during pregnancy it is worth seeing a pelvic floor physiotherapist. They can teach you how to pee (and poop) properly during pregnany so you empty the whol...

I would be super cautious here. It is notoriously difficult to accurately diagnose dyslexia at such a young age. Children reverse, misread and misrepresent letters and numbers just as part of the...

Mum_of_JJ replied to topic How old before kids can take themselves to school

The official recommendation is that children need to hold an adults hand to cross the road until they are 10 years old. I think that is a pretty good age. Depends of course on distance, highways,...

Mum_of_JJ replied to topic Thawing Breast milk

If you're in a huge rush, you can hold the bag/container under a running tap. That does it pretty quick too. Like the others said, make sure you don't microwave it, it's not good for the milk or bub.
