Figgy1982 replied to topic Recovery after caesar

I had my C section at about 2pm, and my parents visited a couple of hours after. DH's father & partner visited the next night. I think it's totally dependent on the type of people. I couldn't wait...

Figgy1982 replied to topic 3.5 mth old moving around cot & rolling in Grobag

Sids foundation told me not to use a sleep positioner as it just gets in the way and poses smothering risk (but each parent needs to make their own decision about things like that). THat's a g...

Figgy1982 replied to topic 3.5 mth old moving around cot & rolling in Grobag

I went through this as well - kept me up all night worrying! DD is a major wriggler, and was never wrapped - she hated it with a passion. She has always slept in a sleeping bag and started rolling ...

I won't say how much mine was because I'm pretty sure my sil stalks me on here and she has asked me how much mine was before and I refuse to tell her. Wasn't extravagant by any means though. I wil...

Figgy1982 replied to topic this one aust day / fb fad has me a little mad.

Yeah I'm not a fan either, but I'm not offended by it. I did take an Australia Day pic of DD today, but she had one of those little stick on australia flag tattoos on her arm, one of her dad's blue...

Figgy1982 replied to topic High blood pressure?

One other thing - on hydopa within about 2 days my face was red raw. Like chronic sunburn. I hadn't really been out it in the sun, I don't have sensitive skin. It was weird. I ended up with the dri...

I don't want total coverage as it looks quite un-natural as I have freckles, probably don't want to spend too much. I have freckles too. I use MAC Mineralised Skinfinish natural. http://www.macc...

How much coverage do you need? I have liquid foundations, but also have a powder one that I buff into my skin for days when I really can't be stuffed, and it looks natural. Also, how much do you wa...

I had high'ish BP from around 20 weeks at around 140/90 (although some days it was fine - i was a very anxious pregnant woman though!). They put me on hydopa after I told them of my mum's BP issue...

Figgy1982 replied to topic Bubs no longer sleeping through the night

Same here! DD started to sleep 7-9 hours most nights from about 4 months. Just as I got used to the sleep she decided she was going to start waking every 3 hours (even as a newborn she slept better...

Figgy1982 replied to topic 3 and a half month old girl screams during breast feeding

I went through this at the same age, all of a sudden. It was awful and the last thing I needed after the other BF drama we'd had. I spoke to a friend of mine who is also an ABA counsellor, she said...

I love mine! I bought the reversible saddle tote in urban. It's pretty big. Fits everything. We leave the extra bag that comes with it in the car all the time so we know we always have supplies in ...

Figgy1982 replied to topic How to stew and serve fruit for 7-month old

I'm pretty sure they say that microwaving or boiling gets rid of all the nutrients. I steam mine, any chance you could buy a steamer - about $50. I don't add anything at all, just steam them til so...

Figgy1982 replied to topic Breast Feeding preparation with inverted nipples

I have "flat-ish" nipples, they aren't totally flat, but only ever protrude 1cm at the absolute most. While they do breast feed, it definitely makes it harder. I used nipple shields for about 3 mon...
