Thanks, Hales brew

Cheers Hales.

Spotty - poor DD. Is there any way you could speak to the fit pharmacist before Wednesday about stopping her cream? Otherwise, 111 sounds like a plan - hope you get someone helpful.

Willyou - it will be Ashton we go to for swimtots, most likely on a Wednesday. Will let you know if we are definitely going, could be a mini meet up smile.

Had a lovely evening. Both boys were really good for Grandma and it was very nice to just have a bit of a laugh together without having to worry about rounding up small people as well.

I'm not quite sure how this has happened but i'm on the edge of my bed whilst a naked well shes got her nappy on H has got the majority of the bed. But at least she isn't screaming nowgrin

Thanks hales.

Glad you had a good time ispy smile no pharmacies open until tomorrow when I might as well just call the doctor! I know it sounds awful but dd has nursery tomorrow and I've paid for it so don't want her missing it blush

Ds is nine months today shock

I just bought an R&R carrier blush don't tell dp

Happy 3/4 birthday, MiniSpotty! Dp has an r+r and loves it, it's the jolly roger one i haven't told him it's reversible smile

I got the owl one smile

Barbeasty Mon 26-Aug-13 08:42:21

Jealous of the r&r, but I love my boba.

DH refuses to baby wear, and tolerates my growing sling stash with bemusement.

We've just noticed a gouge taken out of the plaster in the lounge wall, by DD's giant picture. First attempt to find out what she'd done consisted of "the wall did it by itself". We eventually established she'd swung her umbrella into it.

I feel like a zombie. This boy needs to learn to sleep!

Down at 7. Awake at 8, 9, 10, 12, 2, 3 (all at least 20 minute feeds) and then up for the day at 5. I handed him to DH at 6.30 and got a couple of hours but I honestly feel like the walking dead. This is going on way too long!

Thanks for the thread lazza

spotty if the rash isn't bothering dd I'd keep using the cream tbh, it'll be doing more good than harm iykwim. DS has reactions to a lot of antibiotics (rashes) but the pluses of giving the medicine far outweigh the negative of the rash.

PurplePidjin Mon 26-Aug-13 09:02:23

Babywearing daddies are The World's Sexiest Thing Ever!! It's a brilliant way for them to bond - dp has been taking R out since he was 2 weeks old so i could get a bath.

R slept 6:45-5:15 with two 10 minute wakes at 11:30 and 12:30. I woke up at least twice wondering wtf i was doing lying down, and apparently the silence at 3am woke dp!

PurplePidjin Mon 26-Aug-13 09:02:58

Oh, and the tooth count is up to 4 now grin

Oops beasty! Pesky children.

Sorry you're getting crap sleep IsThat.

Ds is still toothless!

Equimum Mon 26-Aug-13 09:26:16

Happy 3/4 birthday mini spotty! I'm another who's very jealous of your R&R. I have, however, just bought a new Lenny Lamb roses wrap which I love. Just need to practice some different carries now!

Isthat so sorry that you're feeling do exhausted. Are you able to get some sleep during the day today?

F has a horrible cold, so we've been up most of the night, and DH leave for a week in the USA in less than an hour. Could be a long week!

2blessed Mon 26-Aug-13 09:38:51

What's an R&R? I wouldnt mind getting some sort of sling/wrap for nipping out quickly... I'm so late

Happy bank holiday everyone!

Hope you get some rest today isthat

It's a rose & rebellion carrier. They're£80 but there's an offer on zuilly for £50 smile

Morning all, sorry you had such a rubbish night IsThat.

I had a good night here. DS up at 12:30 and then for the day at 6:30. It was DP's turn to get up as I let him sleep until 9:15 yesterday. Off he trotted to the spare room with J, leaving behind his on-call phone, which woke me up at 7:15. hmm

And as a lovely added bonus J has another stomach bug. We've gone through 2 sets of clothes already today. My friend's baby has had it for a week but didn't think to mention it until they were ready to leave after 6 hours. Awesome.

2blessed Mon 26-Aug-13 09:49:42

I want one! Looks very easy to use. Thanks for the tip spotty

Barbeasty Mon 26-Aug-13 09:58:40

Oh willyou not good on either front. I'm glad I don't do on-call any more, I think that would be the last straw with A's sleep!

Spotty I was going to check you'd seen the zulily deal. If only they'd put the preschool ones on there.

DH would rather just carry in his arms and suffer. Some very strange "man" thing. I'll leave him to it and use my slings!

Dd's so tiddly she will still fit in this one grin

ddas Mon 26-Aug-13 10:16:29

Love the patterns on the r&r's.

We have an ergo which I couldn't live without!! Especially with two it's a totally necessity- at least that's what I told dh when he saw how much it was even on sale! But I love it so totally worth it. It even looks manly enough that dh is happy to wear it Barbeasty

Didn't get on with the ring sling though.

Has anyone else's lo gone off breakfast? Dd used to love her wheatabix with puréed fruit but won't eat anything now and we've tried porridge, cheerios etc although she's happy to eat some toast and Cheerios if she can do it herself do maybe it's the spoon she's gone off of.

hales I am enjoying work. Some days are tough and wonder why I'm back but most of the time I finish the day happy that I feel useful in a not only a mum way.

Ooh spotty thanks for the r and r tip.off! Like the nautical (reminiscent of the ahoi wrap) but really secretly want the tiger designs. Argh - may have to sacrifice a wrap..
