Thanks Mama for the title. A new thread hopefully everyone will find us again.

sassy netmums don't have a mobile site either and navigation is a nightmare! ( I looked and came running straight back to MN) V brave of you to start a thread you probably need this wine now grin

TallyBear Tue 10-Jul-12 18:20:07

ROFL, love that thread. I had never realised NM was so wrong!!

Only half way through so need to finish but just had a text from dh that he's on his way home with ds from his folks. It's an hour away. I told him this morning that he needed to be back by 6:30 to give Seb some dinner before his bottle and bed!! What is it with men and timekeeping?! It's bad enough that Seb will sleep in the car and won't be remotely tired by bedtime.

And I was so busy reading the NM thread I forgot to go to Zumba!!!! Bollocks!! That's three weeks in a row I've missed no wonder I'm still a lard arse...

Welcome back Sch and anyone who's been AWOL.

<goes off to search the cupboards for chocolate knowing full well that there is none in the house despite the HUGE tesco delivery last night sad>

TallyBear Tue 10-Jul-12 18:28:59

Oh no, I think I've used lo for little one on mn before!

<feels my mn credibility seeping away>....

sassy that is hilarious grin brightened my day right up!

Off to make dips n stuff for the ladies tonight. Group of friends coming over for wine and nibbles and now I've read the netmums thread and had a bottle of beer I am looking forward to it!

Have a pleasant evening hunnies wink

FuzzzyDuckosaurus Tue 10-Jul-12 18:54:59

I find nm so 'American' what with the hun/hunnies and 'baby dust/pink sparkles' nonsense!! MN is farrrr better wink. I've only read some of the thread but will catch up after little duck is in bed

Blinkin' heck I don't post for a couple of weeks (in fact I don't even think it's that long) and you start a new thread, fall out, make friends (or whatever was going on), get poopy bums (well in Sassys fb world anyway).

Am not going to go back and read the old thread, am not even going to read these 3 pages otherwise I will never catch up. Sorry, no offensive.

It was lovely to meet up with Sassy and Scheh the other week and meet C and E and the twins, E was standing up herself and going on her tiptoes too! C was funny when Scheh went to get him so water and he started crying but as soon as I picked him up and we started Baby Flying at Sassys glasses he forgot about Mum and was laughing his little head off grin It was good that they could all have a play together too, although my picture taking trying to get them all still at the same time is questionable.

Poppy has had diarrhoea since Monday last week now, initially I wasn't worried because I thought it was teething but by Wednesday she had had 7 poopy nappies in 24 hours so I panicked a bit and took her to the GP, temp and everything ok so unfortunately just teething sad I think I can see 2 bottom teeth and she is still poopy and really clingy at the moment - but I think that might be a 9 month thing.

Still gorgeous, still yummy, still waking in the night, still want another, still not turning up sad (but have been having Reflexology so fx)

Right going to not get so beyond this time, sorry for whittery post.

didn't realize you had two climbin redundant post smile thing is I keep experimenting when he has some problem and then when something works, i walk around like I'm Einstein who's discovered the solution for world peace.....

general question - have any of you held back from giving the babes egg? I've been giving him the yolk only and now whole egg in sche's fab cheese and spinach omlette suggestion. He has it happily but I got into a debate with my health visitor (or whatever she's called - the baby clinic person) today. She wants me to stop, even though he's shown no signs of allergy, claiming that allergies will develop if I keep giving it to him. That's not all. According to her, egg reduces the absorption of iron. The whole point of giving egg is for iron and calcium, I thought.

I'm almost totally sure she's wrong. Will google it but wanted to check on here as well......

MamaMaiasaura Tue 10-Jul-12 20:43:16

I give J eggs, runny yolks too. Your hv sounds bonkers

MamaMaiasaura Tue 10-Jul-12 20:47:11

I just google and there was something about reducing absorption of iron so u retract bonkers statement confused

MamaMaiasaura Tue 10-Jul-12 20:50:00

Found a better site as .gov and it gives eggs as one of best sources of iron which is what I thought originally...

strawberrypenguin Tue 10-Jul-12 20:52:38

Hi cheshire hope Poppy starts feeling better soon

lovin I tried to give W scrambled egg but he outright refused to eat it so I had it for lunch instead! I am panning on trying him with a hard boiled one soon though.

Scheherezade Tue 10-Jul-12 21:10:34

Lo I hope not as C has eggs 4 times a week!
My HV hasn't mentioned it, and I'd not read anything? Thing is, for hundreds of years meat, eggs, fish, fruit and veg were all people and babies had, surely its natural and healthy?

For the person who was struggling with milk intake (lo again?) C didn't have much milk one day, so I made a white cheese sauce with 1/2 formula, flaked salmon and chopped broccoli. You could make it with all formula.

<waves at Cheshire> sorry to hear about P, it breaks your heart when they're ill and you can't take it away sad teething is not nice or fun.

FuzzzyDuckosaurus Tue 10-Jul-12 21:16:43

I went right off eggs when I was preg and now can't bring myself to buy them, even for S!! confused

FuzzzyDuckosaurus Tue 10-Jul-12 21:20:35

I have two loads of washing to do and about 3 sinks of dishes plus all bottles to wash/sterilize yet I cannot force myself up from the couch!!!

MamaMaiasaura Tue 10-Jul-12 21:38:11

I just found couch and watching bbc1 and faffing on iPad/phone eating grapes and -- then-- dairymilk

ClimbingPenguin Tue 10-Jul-12 21:47:25

I haven't tried DS on egg or dairy yet blush, I only got as far as fish and various nuts (in butter form, cashew, peanut, hazlenut and almond).

The only things they can't have is whole nuts and honey I thought. That HV does sound bonkers.

Scheherezade Tue 10-Jul-12 21:56:26

See, I get free eggs from stables and mega cheap off neighbour, so as a recently-graduated student I can't bear to waste free/cheap food!

Also I'm a bit mad, and fret about him getting protein & carb twice a day, and in varying forms. Otherwise it'd just be sandwiches for lunch every day, as he's decided pasta is YUCK.

ClimbingPenguin Tue 10-Jul-12 22:10:40

At some point you may find c will fixate on one food group, eg carb load, that is normal, obviously still offer variety but don't stress if he doesn't partake of it all.

Scheherezade Tue 10-Jul-12 22:16:05

Yeah... Atm he just fixates on the dogs food, which has to be hidden up the stairs (hence his learning to climb stairs).

lovinbeingmum Tue 10-Jul-12 22:26:06

so glad to hear all the feedback on egg....have decided to ignore

MamaMaiasaura Tue 10-Jul-12 22:54:49

climbingpenguin you are right there. I remember Sam doing that (still does). And some days J will eat lots and hardly anything the next. I reckon they like to keep us guessing confused. Made quorn with pasta twirls and spaghetti tonight. Was scummy as used pine nuts, garlic, onion, spinach, herbs and tinned tomatoes with a bit of tomato purée. She scoffed hers then pinched some of mine. And after she "fed herself" (and the kitchen floor) custard.

Scheherezade Tue 10-Jul-12 22:58:35

Do pine nuts come from ordinary pine cones?? hmm

MamaMaiasaura Tue 10-Jul-12 23:11:59

Yup, but I get them from Tesco. Expensive but scrummy.

Scheherezade Tue 10-Jul-12 23:47:51

Oops, wrong smiley, I meant confused

So you could just harvest some from any woods?

God, I sound like such a tramp. But I'm worried the lack of sun means our blackberries and damsons aren't going to ripen.

CheshireDing Wed 11-Jul-12 08:55:44

Lovin when does she think you should start with the eggs then?! hmm Unless it's a really obscure food (like a crustacean maybe) and unless there is an allergy in the family personally I think they should try most things. P absolutely loves eggs and fish.

Never really thought about it but am now shock that pine nuts come from pine cones I see all floor - don't know why I am shocked, just never thought about it.

Scheh I also thought she had Chicken Pox as she had spots everywhere but they seem to be going now
