I'm all for recycling but have MN run out of new tips? At least 4 or 5 recently have been posted before. Good though they are, I am disappointed to see the same thing twice. And no, I haven't got any great tips to offer instead!

but newbies won't have seen them, davros! it's for the general good of the community

Isn't there a list of them from the homepage?

I've noticed that too.
I haven't anything useful to add apart from to shower with your kids and cut out interminable bathtimes (or keep them for special occasions!).

I didn't know that was there, Davros!

I never look at homepage unless something posted here sends me there to look, so most of the old ones are new to me - haven't actually seen www's pizza scissors one yet

Shall we write some new ones?

Store pureed food in ice cube trays.
Use gro-bags if your baby kicks off the blankets.
Use cots, stops your baby rolling off the bed.
Use clothes, stops your baby getting cold.

Any more???

Tinker..trouble is,most of them are like that!
(I did however like the one about not wrestling to put the toddler's shoes on until they are in the pushchair/carseat and storing the wipes upside down to keep the top ones moist. Damned clever!)

Neither can I really, cope that is. By time I've read the titles, they're all out of date.

boil vinegar and water for 15 mins to half an hour to get rid of the smell of burnt toast.

Thanks for the tips! I hate to admit it, but I think the recycled tips are my fault.... will check into that. You might have to put up with a day or so more of it. Sorry!

I thought everybody knew about keeping wipes upside down, otherwise I would have sent it in as a tip!

(If you don't, the ones at the bottom end up swilling around in a puddle of wet; not quite sure what happens the upside down way but the very last one is always OK...weird.)
