Hi, just wanted to welcome you.
You'll get some great advice and chat here, wish I'd found mumsnet when my dd was such a tiny baby, although I would've spent far too much time on here!

welcome - mind you don't waste your precious sleep time on here, it's all too easy to spend hours on here when you should be sleeping. Like me, now.

Welcome smile

You can find fab parenting advice here and also stuff aside parenting. Enjoy!

Thanks for the welcomes.

Motherhood is hard work but so very worth it... Leon doesnt sleep so everything seems 10 times worse than it probably is right now!!

Hi Gemma!
Please don't be offended, but I was just on my way to bed so I won't be hanging around. I'll look out for you when I'm next on here though.


MummyToLeon Wed 06-Aug-08 00:57:24

thumbwitch Wed 06-Aug-08 00:58:45

thanks LackaDAISYcal - I keep promising myself I WILL go to bed early, I WILL, I need to sleeeeepp.. and then it's 2am again! So tonight I will go at 1am (2 minutes to go!)

It does settle down soon, even if they don't sleep still you end up getting used to different sleep patterns.

How is it all going apart from that?

CvQ Wed 06-Aug-08 00:59:10

Things are mostly okay apart from sleeping! Stopped breast feeding when Leon was 2 weeks old as he was feeding every 20 mins and i was struggling. Feel guilty about that now as he has reflux problems! Pead prescribed Enfamil formula! So far so good
