Its not uncommon for kids to stop taking milk when weaning...I know one of my friends son just refused milk altogether through the day. Even now he hates milk and has only started eating cereal with a tiny amount of milk in it. Granted he doesn't have allergies so can give him calcium through yoghurts and cheese etc.

She has been taking her milk better today, although she was massively sick twice
I could kill Andrew today. We were out for lunch, she he decided to give her some squid, despite me saying it was a bad idea in case of allergy. Then he let her suck a lime. What I didn't realise was that he used the same chop sticks on the squid and lime and bit the squid into pieces for her after eating food with milk egg and soya in it. This morning he buttered her toast using the same knife he had used on his toast
After breakfast and a few hours after lunch she had 2 massive projective vomits, one all over me it's so hard getting him to not be stupid and think about what he is doing. He still hasn't stopped throwing her up in the air and turning her upside down when she has just eaten it's always me that gets puked on though

Happy Mother's Day tomorrow everyone

Sounds hard, Kirsty. You really need to sit him down and make him listen to you. Or simple matter would be to go out for the day and leave him with Aurora and he'll soon realise the mistakes he's making. x

His mum had a go at him all this weekend, we were at his for Easter. I think he might finally be getting it, although it's hard to tell sometimes!! Today I caught him standing her on our back garden wall. It's only about 5ft up from the garden, but a straight drop onto roses and nettles and about 8foot down. I screamed at him for that one it's scary sometimes who little he thinks of the risks relating to things :-/

Aurora is getting more teeth. I feel sorry for her all over again. And she is back to leaving a lot of her milk the last few days. My mum is coming to visit tomorrow for the week, and I'm doing a training day in work on Wednesday. Hopefully aurora doesn't mind too much!

I lost Ella today, she ran off around the side of the school as all the older kids came out. I couldn't see if I had left her behind or if she had run off home (a few doors away from school) so I retraced my steps back to the infants and told them she was awol incase she found her way back while I looked another way (2 ways home to.check), went back to the juniors and one of my neighbors had found her in the playground and told her to come back to the infants. Soooo stressed. Too many big kids to see anything.

Hi ladies,

Haven't been around here for a while but I was just wondering how people found having a small age gap between children?

Mine are exactly 18months apart. They are terrible twosome. Out to kill me with stress. They plot and do the most ridiculous things, but they are getting better and roll on september when little'un starts full time school.

I'm hoping for a smallish age gap between Aurora and a sibling

Mand, losing her sounds very scary! I'm glad it all came right in the end

Aurora can crawl -/ yesterday she crawled about with her tummy on the floor, today she is on her hands and knees and practising sitting up from her crawling position! I'm definitely in trouble now!!

Ahh.. That wasn't what I needed to hear! :-/

If all goes well then I'll be having a 4 year old, a 18 month old & a newborn as I found out this week I'm pregnant & my youngest is only 9 months old..

I'm a little shocked and scared to be honest! X

Small age gaps between siblings can be a good thing. I know two people who were born 11 months apart and they're really close.

Sounds like a normal toddler hun, at least in my experience. Do withdraw technique at night. First night sit by bed til she's asleep, next night further away, eventually you'll be sat on the stairs and as she settles you can creep away. I mixed it with controlled crying so not responding to out of bed and crying (stair gate on the door) for a few mins, then just putting back in bed and leaving again, no eye contact, no talking. I had Chloe self settling within a fortnight, I did it when I was pregnant with number 2. She is old enough to know what no means, we started introducing consequences like time out, toys away that sort of thing.

maple, my middle 2 kiddies are just under 18 months apart and they are best of friends :) It was lots of fun having them and they were always great company for each other :) I also had a 4 year old as well as a 17 month and baby and it was fine :)

Hi guys! It's been a while!

Just wanted to ask something if that's ok!

I see Jasmine once a month (sometimes more) and I'd really like to make our contact days fun and different, but I really don't know what to do!
The park is good but other than that, I'm not entirely sure. Any suggestions?

And here's a picture, just because!




I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!


Who else is fine?!?!?

She is so cute!

Could you do some sensory/messy play with her? Or arts and crafts?

Aurora isn't allergic to peanuts! Finally I can start giving her some foods with protein and fats
And my house is sold! We will find out tomorrow if we get the one we want to buy I'm slightly nervous, and will be waiting by my phone anxiously!

Good ideas! :)
I haven't tried any messy play recently because she didn't used to like mess much (strange child!) But I'll try and find some crafty stuff to do! Thanks :)

That's brilliant news kirsty! You must be so relieved :)
And got my fingers crossed for you with the house!

Aurora doesn't like other children much! You could try non messy sensory play if that makes sense. Things like tissue paper scrunched up, and bubble wrap to pop. Or boxes with things inside to feel. Aurora just eats whatever I try and get her to play with at this point, so maybe someone else will have better ideas!

Thank you, we should know about the house by the end of today. Eek!!

Good ideas! I do actually have a pack of bubblewrap here that I don't need. :)
Jasmine has never been one for eating random stuff luckily so shouldn't have a problem (but you never know I suppose!)

How exciting! Let us know!
