Ok. My dd is determined to stand and tries to hold herself into anything. She sometimes misses and bangs her head on the floor (oak floor).

DH wants to buy a helmet. He is very serious about it. I think it is a bit extreme and utterly OTT.

Any thougts?

ott. never heard of anything like it!

NoodleStroodle Fri 11-May-07 09:27:47

Umm - I think that is a bit OTT unless DD has fragile skull.

Isn't that a learning thing - hit head - don't do that again...try to land on bottom

compo Fri 11-May-07 09:28:02

actually he could be on to a business idea!!

I thought he was joking but today he mentioned again.

So is he going to buy her one of those padded suits as well, so she will never ever hurt herself . I am sorry it just sounds so OTT

NoodleStroodle Fri 11-May-07 09:37:04

Or put her in a padded cell?

cylonbabe Fri 11-May-07 09:39:09

completely ott

Oh they do sell them. Damned if I can remember what they're called though. Completely OTT however.

misdee Fri 11-May-07 09:43:39

something guard they are called, i think.

but completely OTT, is dd a PFB?

hippmummy Fri 11-May-07 09:44:28

Yes they do sell them - there was a thread months ago with a link to the website!
The poor OP got totally ribbed and was even accused of being the seller trying to get free advertising!
I wish I could find it and could do links...

misdee Fri 11-May-07 10:00:02

belgo Fri 11-May-07 10:00:51

OTT. Both my dds have learnt to walk on tiled(sp?) floors.

They do sell padded headgear for people/children with epilepsy. Not usually needed for your average child. They may fall once then learn not to.
Tempting to wrap them in cotton wool though.

maisemor Fri 11-May-07 10:12:44

Sorry give up, what does PFB mean?

misdee Fri 11-May-07 10:13:42

precious first born, its meant i na jokey way.

i think dh would've got dd1 a thudguard as well btw, lol.

SoupDragon Fri 11-May-07 10:38:40

Yes, PFB describes the way we all were OTT wrt caring for our first babies.

i want to show hubby when he gets back from work?

thanks in advance to everyone!

gingersj Fri 11-May-07 18:57:50

He is very OTT IMHO.

Did he get you a padded suit when you were pregnant?

Melly Fri 11-May-07 19:08:43

Think he is completely OTT, but do think it's quite sweet in a way as well

lemonaid Fri 11-May-07 19:09:21

Way OTT. Way, way, way, way, way OTT.

WigWamBam Fri 11-May-07 19:11:53

Sorry, but I think he's barking.

MrMariella Fri 11-May-07 19:21:03

i think he is a loving caring father, on this evidence alone.

It's different for boys/men. When mums provide just about everything for necessary care and survival of little one's , we havethe invitation to bounce around on the fringes trying( and sometimes over-trying) to add something.

Go easy on him. He's not loopy.
