Checking in on the new thread - thanks Puggle!

Present and mostly correct.

Felix yep, it was Elsa dresses in particular I was thinking of. Even Disneyland paris has sold out and they are 60 Euros each and don't look great up close. I am going to have to have one made up for dd's birthday, so off to buy cloth soon.

The coffee thing isn't an Egyptian thing AFAIK, even PIL are aghast. It is just this particular relative's batshit crazy theory that all babies love coffee. On the plus side, I was doing espressos like shots in France and have now stopped so N is probably no more caffeinated than usual.

Hopefully picking up DD's car seat tomorrow because I don't think my heart will stand another car journey otherwise.

Checking in smile

altered I agree that you are doing so well at being chilled. My mum is staying at the moment and I'm even struggling with the constant comments about how he'd love a rusk etc. although I've started weaning early (now 17.3w) I'm sticking to no wheat for the time being, however much I get told the advice always changes etx

Pidgy Thu 05-Jun-14 19:18:51

felix you'll make a fortune on the Elsa dresses! My niece wanted one but they've sold out everywhere as altered said.

flyawayblue Thu 05-Jun-14 19:41:11

Popping in. Thanks for the thread puggle.

altered in amazed at your calm and really glad things are good over there.
A is definitely teething and the tiny bastod poor thing can't sleep longer than 20 mind during the day. Only managed 2 naps today so worried for this evening. Oh and how hard is it to follow stunt flush the loo? I'd just for Alice down (her room is right by the bathroom) and know it wakes her in the first 5/10 mind... Que my mum ignoring me and A screaming.

Still feeling bad but talked to the hv and gp. Hv useless and just pointed me at the gp but not sure what I expected. DH's work have though been lovely and he hopefully will be able to be around more for a bit.

Marking my place in the new thread!

FizzypopFireball Thu 05-Jun-14 20:29:06

Hello, checking in as well.

Thanks for the new thread, puggle. By the way, I'm getting a tad excited as we're heading up to your neck of the woods over the weekend. My brother and his family live in Inverness so we're going for a little visit. This'll be our first trip away with Henry, and a practice run for our staycation in July.

I've made a list of everything H will need, and blimmin' 'eck, there's no travelling light with babies, is there?

MerryPops Thu 05-Jun-14 20:36:57

Checking in. It's my birthday today, Alexander's gift was to be a whiny, miserable pain all day. Although to be fair to him there has been real tears so I'll forgive him, I have no idea what's wrong though! Fortunately he's gone to bed ok, here's hoping for a better day tomorrow.

TobyLerone Thu 05-Jun-14 21:14:40

Happy birthday, merry! Sorry you've had a tough day flowers

beccajoh Fri 06-Jun-14 07:15:59

Rusks are awful - check out the sugar content! I've no idea why stuff like that is allowed to be sold for babies!

flyingawayblue sorry I'm not keeping up with things v well! but when you say you're feeling bad, is it depressed feelings? I had PND after I had DD and struggled on with it for five months. When I eventually went to see my GP it was a relief. My HV was lovely, though. I think I've got the only nice/useful/helpful one in the whole country! Sorry to hear yours isn't good.

Archie had a raging temperature yesterday afternoon and evening. We were struggling to keep it under control, even with full doses of calpol and ibuprofen it only went down to 38 degrees. DH slept in his bedroom overnight. I heard some crying at about 2am, but it's all quiet this morning. I can hear Archie snuffling but I don't want to go in his room in case I wake them both up.

beccajoh Fri 06-Jun-14 07:17:09

Knew I'd forgotten something! merry happy birthday! Sorry you had a rough day xx

AMillionNameChangesLater Fri 06-Jun-14 07:30:17

Happy birthday Merry! I'm a little late to the party, but genuine all the same smile

Henry keeps waking at night. I'm so tired, doing night wakes and working full time is draining. He won't really settle for his dad at night tho. We're thinking of putting him in with his brother this weekend and seeing jf that makes a difference

Naturegirl82 Fri 06-Jun-14 07:55:39

Joining the tired party. O hadn't been too bad, had gone back to 2 night wakenings but last night we saw every hour except 4am! Luckily visiting MIL this morning so at least I'll get a break and a hot cup of tea

beccajoh Fri 06-Jun-14 12:59:30

Well DH took him to the GP this morning and they think he's got a chest infection so prescribed penicillin. A tooth has also appeared! Poor little chap must bee feeling pretty crap hmm

Spged Fri 06-Jun-14 13:11:23

I lost you all! Belated happy birthday Merry! Think I have a baby with hayfever but luckily she is sleeping now on top of me. Nothing to do but catch up on MN! :-)

enormouse Fri 06-Jun-14 14:26:27

Poor Archie becca. Hope the penicillin sorts him out and he's back on good form soon.

Happy belated birthday merry. thanks

Hi and welcome back Spged.

Another awful night of being up at 11 and 12 and 1 and 3 and 4. And then DS1 decided to begin the day at half 5. It was terrifying waking up with his unsettling hamstery face looming over me.

Gettingthroughthis Fri 06-Jun-14 21:02:22

Happy birthday merry smile

becca hope he feels better soon. Thanks for info on rusks. I already said the whole food has less calories than milk when mum said h isn't sleeping through as not eating enough solids (thanks toby) so will bring out the rusks 2nd ingredient is sugar next time a comment is made
