Thanks and good luck,

Survey done and I have to say it's all lovely and fluffy and all but I think adverts with soft lighting, fluffy towels and perfect parents with gurgling babies in spotless houses do prospective parents no favours. It isn't exactly a secret that adverts sell a lifestyle as well as just a product and when I was exhausted, my house was a tip and I wanted that screaming infant to just be quiet before I went insane it was just something else that made me feel like a failure for not achieving. More realism please!

Done. Please let me win-JL is opening up in our city in the next couple of months and I'm pregnant again with loads of baby bits to buy!

Oh I think newborns are adorable. Maybe I was lucky with mine but I loved those first few months. TTC#2 so hopefully I'll get to experience them again (although we're not having much luck so far ...)

Hahaha at first tooth being best bit. Have they even met a baby? Do they not know the horrors of teething? And newborns being babies less than 9 months grin

It did read like a survey written by someone without children who is trying to imagine life with babies. All that cuddle guff!

Tyranasaurus Sun 08-Dec-13 08:13:49

'What would I give up to go back in time for a cuddle with my newborn baby?' There is nothing anyone could give ME to go back to that colicky hell

tortoisesarefab Sun 08-Dec-13 08:19:21

The advert should show an overflowing washing basket, disheveled mum with no clothes to wear and a clothes line with 400 bibs and muslins! At least thats what its like with a refluxy, vomiting baby smile

LegoCaltrops Sun 08-Dec-13 09:32:23

Done. And yes, the entire survey reads like it's been written by someone who doesn't have children.

I thought it was very complicated, actually.

Also 'last 4 years or so' and yet the age list goes up to 18? hmm

sealight123 Sun 08-Dec-13 21:21:45

done diddly done smile

cardamomginger Sun 08-Dec-13 21:46:47

Done. But so fluffy I feel I need to run the lint remover over myself before I feel clean and like 'me' again. grin

beautifulgirls Sun 08-Dec-13 21:50:01

Your title suggests if I have a 4 year old I can complete this but it will not let me answer Q2 unless I have a child 3 or under.

Done. Dd is 2 days old so I'm in snuggly newborn mode.

CaramelisedOnion Mon 09-Dec-13 03:09:24

Done. The question about what I would give up to have another cuddle with my newborn baby was a bit weird.....I love cuddling my 2 year old son as he is just as much as I loved cuddling him when he was a newborn.....if not more as now he cuddles back!

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 09-Dec-13 11:37:05

beautifulgirls - it says 4 and under: fine to to it with a 4 year old!

beautifulgirls Mon 09-Dec-13 21:27:10

It will not physically let me progress through the questions unless I change one child age to 3yrs or under - So I gave up and didn't submit obviously.

beautifulgirls Mon 09-Dec-13 21:30:51

scrap that....seems to work in firefox but not IE.

EauPea Tue 10-Dec-13 12:36:41

Would give pretty much anything to go back to newborn stage sad

FoxyRevenger Tue 10-Dec-13 12:41:58

Done. Made me realise how much I would give to go back to cuddling my daughter when she was newborn. I was pretty much scared stiff those first few days and treated her like a bomb about to detonate. sad

MerryChristmasyoufilthyanimal Tue 10-Dec-13 13:07:46

Done smile

TwoTearsInABucket Tue 10-Dec-13 19:07:51

Done. It took ds1 till he was 3 to get to grips with cuddling so arms around my neck was pretty special.
Also in newborn mode and making to most of my last one. But why do they always need feeding to sleep at the other ones' bath/bed time?

SuiGeneris Tue 10-Dec-13 20:57:13

I was surprised the survey compiler thought giving up chocolate for a week or similar could be a fair sacrifice to go back to cuddling your newborn. Maybe I am baby mad but I would happily give up all of the options for a cuddle with my baby sons again...

ovenbun Wed 11-Dec-13 08:28:39

Complete. I love the current fairy adverts with the baby in a superhero costume! Cant wait to cuddle my baby 12 weeks till due date!


GrasshopperNchipmunk Wed 11-Dec-13 21:42:53


ImABadGirl Wed 11-Dec-13 21:47:27

Done but it wouldn't let me answer q1 sad

Pointeshoes Thu 12-Dec-13 12:14:22

All done

mummybare Thu 12-Dec-13 13:43:20

Also done.

The question about what I would give up to have another cuddle with my newborn baby was a bit weird.....I love cuddling my 2 year old son as he is just as much as I loved cuddling him when he was a newborn.....if not more as now he cuddles back!

^^That's exactly what I thought!

StarsAbove Thu 12-Dec-13 15:26:07

Cute survey! I'd definitely give up chocolate and wine for snuggly baby cuddles!

kimblesj Thu 12-Dec-13 15:49:54

IceBeing Thu 12-Dec-13 17:32:03

I needed wine and chocolate to survive baby 'snuggles'.

Now I get actual snuggles from my toddler and life is just so infinitely better.
