I don't know why I watched it. Everyone on it was awful.

I do wonder how she'll feel once she has a baby- whether she'll stick by some of the terrible advice she's given parents.

She's had it and has admitted she struggled www.itv.com/thismorning/hot-topics/kathryn-mewes-nanny-who-struggled-with-her-newborn

I quite like her blush but that wasn't a great episode.

One of the many things that irritates me about this programme is the artificiality of the three day thing. It means that, for instance, if a child is used to co-sleeping they have to go cold turkey and be left crying themselves into hysteria alone in their bedroom until they give in out of sheer exhaustion. The reality is that no caring parent would do that to their child, they would use a slower and less traumatic process. And we never seem to hear about whether these techniques actually work in the long term.

I thought it was totally unfair to expect the family to go to IKEA and not have a row, er isn't that par for the course at ikea??
I did say to myself I bet she bloody cringes at some of her 'advice' once she has her own baby

This couple clearly have a lot of issues and it will take more than 3 days to sort. The experience may have at least helped them to take a look at their lives and think about what is really important.
