My fiancé is the best dad I could ask for

I’m having a relaxing bath as he is doing the night time routine tonight and I all I hear is home reading her a book so I go look and this is what I found!

My mam has bought the baby these and they say from 4+ months, but don’t want to give them to him in case they are bad for him? Or mess up his routine for milk as it’s replac...

What baby items won’t you be buying?

I’ve seen a lot of people give opinions on baby items that they think are a waste of money/ unnecessary so what are some of those items for you? Personally, I think nappy bins are such a con with how expensive the refills are I just don’t see the point when I can use my normal bin!

Bed times

How old are your little ones and what time do they go to bed? My little boy is nearly 10 weeks and I have always aimed to have him in bed asleep between 9 and 10 but he is always pretty unsettled from 7/8pm so I was wondering whether to try putting him to bed earlier. His first bit of sleep is always the longest so ...

Health visitor advised I wean baby off his night feed and now everything has went tits up 🙄

My HV seemed concerned that my boy is still having 1 feed during the night and said he doesn't need it. She told me to start weaning him off it by making less and less milk each night until he no longer wakes for it. The thing is, the routine we had going was actually the best he'd ever slept at night. One wake for...

Colostrum

Can colostrum vary in colour? It’s always referred to as liquid gold and see these syringes of yellow/orange liquid but mine isn’t like that - mine is only slightly coloured, does this mean it’s no good?? Also anyone find that it’s much easier and flows better from one boob? My left boob seems to only have a bit c...

Colostrum

Do you pump colostrum? I have so so much it is literally squirting out of my boobs! I don’t want to waste any at all but was wondering if you could use a manual pump to pump it out and collect it?

Does formula feeding improve babies sleep?

My little boy is 16 weeks and mostly exclusively breastfed. We recently started giving him a bottle of formula before bed to see if it improved his sleep and to give me a break. He usually does his longest stretch from 8pm for 4 hours and then wakes up every 2 hours for a 10 minutes on the boob and goes straight bac...

Forgetting learned skills

My LO (16 months) has recently stopped doing skills she’s know how to do for months. Examples of this is giving a hi-5 and clapping, both of which she’ll no longer do even when prompted. Is this something to worry about or is this normal as they get older?

Is a Moses basket worth it (and what alternative?)

We have a next to me crib for night time and a cotbed in the nursery but I wondered what people are doing if they want to keep an eye on baby sleeping in the living room / elsewhere? A Moses basket seems good but I keep hearing babies grow out of them super quickly. Any advice ??
