Captain_Capie started new topic SIDS Risk?

Hi everyone! I am curious to know whether putting a blanket under the cot sheet could be a SIDS risk? I am only asking to make the mattress a bit softer for DS.... DS is 4 months old, since he was...

Captain_Capie replied to topic Breastfeeding tips

Hi At the breastfeeding class at the hospital we watched a video on "baby led attachment". It was AMAZING. The babies can do it themselves! I tried it with my son and since birth we have had an aw...

Captain_Capie replied to topic Second child, will they do a c-section

Good on you for asking! Emergency c-sections can be very traumatic. I hope you don't mind but I have PM'd you a link that I think can help with your research on VBAC. Don't hesitate to seek counsel...

How beautiful! I am so happy you got the birth you were hoping for! I didn't have time to do the course but I read the book (the Mongan method) and listened to the CD that came with it. I had the C...

I never read that one, but I have heard great things. I read "Hypnobirthing - the Mongan Method" it was GREAT! I totally recommend it! (I laboured for 8 hours and used the gas for maybe 2 hours in ...

I find they work on DS. Last night he had a really unsettled sleep. He was drooling SO much this morning, had rosy cheeks and was trying to eat everything. DF and I were like, what is up with you t...

Captain_Capie replied to topic My 9 month old wont eat!

Agree with Subzero. If you can get to your local library, hire out "Baby Led Weaning" by Gill Rapley. It's a great read!

Captain_Capie replied to topic Asked if i wanted to keep Placenta WTF

Ooh we did a lotus birth with DS. It was the best thing we could have done. We salted it, but you don't have to. At first DF was freaked out by the idea but he read a lot about it and now DF and I ...

Captain_Capie replied to topic I need moral support or help or just a vent :-(

I have found a few things that help DS sleeping longer at night. Hopefully some of these will help (if you can try them)! I agree with PP; night sleeps generally correspond to day sleeps and I fin...

Captain_Capie replied to topic Trouble with winding :(

I know you've got a lot of advice already but I just wanted to share - DS seems to burp best when I hold him upright on my chest with tight cuddles and gentle rock or sometimes rubbing up and down ...

DF went out yesterday wearing his favourite band t-shirt 'Faith no More'. He told me he had a lot of people being really rude to him and he couldn't figure out why...especially when he was being ch...

Captain_Capie replied to topic "Save Our Sleep" - anyone try it?

I don't doubt that it works, but personally I don't agree with it. I could never ever let my son cry - even as a protest...but that's me. My baby feeds and sleeps on demand; whenever and wherever h...

Captain_Capie replied to topic It makes me soooo MAD.

Have a look into the recipe book 'deceptively delicious' and also look at the sneaky chef. They'll probably be at your local library. They both offer ways to 'hide' vegies into food. At least then ...

Captain_Capie replied to topic epidural....

Although the epidural is great for some people (and very effective), there are a lot of risks and disadvantages (I fully support those who have had an epidural). I suggest trying hypnobirthing or t...

A lot of SPD has to do with babys positioning. It can get better and worse throughout pregnancy depending on where bub is sitting. Bad posture also contributes to SPD. It all has to do with the pre...

I totally agree with PP...your SIL sounds jealous of you and your DF. She obviously wants to portray that her and her husband have a strong/close relationship and does that by saying they went thr...

The hospital that I'm going to birth at has delayed cord clamping as standard procedure now...it is 'baby friendly' accredited...worth googling in my opinion. If all goes well we will be doing a ...

It's my due date today! Hooray! We had 3 scans during the pregnancy and got 3 different dates...24th, 26th and 27th. We were told to go with the 27th because it was taken first at around 12 weeks ...
