I'm a bit worried by this. DS1 and DS2 are expecting that J will get an Easter egg but it may not be the ideal first weaning food!

TheDetective Mon 18-Mar-13 09:24:51

Of course J gets an egg for mummy to scoff later duuuuh wink

StuntNun Mon 18-Mar-13 09:41:22

Interesting Detective. I wonder if J prefers Hotel Chocolat eggs?

MadamGazelleIsMyMum Mon 18-Mar-13 09:43:30

Well, I know that in this household, DS prefers creme eggs, and lots of 'em grin

fruitpastilles Mon 18-Mar-13 09:43:56

I hope the Easter bunny doesn't visit S, I fear for my waistline!

J will have to eat it while the others are all asleep. With just the wrapping left to show for it smile

Seconded. Mummies get all scoffing rights on confectionary until babies are at least a year grin

Can he bring sleepy dust?

ValiumQueen Mon 18-Mar-13 11:00:21

Yawn

StuntNun Mon 18-Mar-13 11:10:26

Poor VQ <pats hair soothingly>

BigPigLittlePig Mon 18-Mar-13 11:17:34

Dh looked a bit embarrassed yesterday when I pointed out it's hotel chocolAT rather than choc-a-lot which he'd been loudly talking about. Bless him.

MissMummy1 Mon 18-Mar-13 11:28:04

I've already eaten 2 easter eggs blush

Pikz Mon 18-Mar-13 11:32:41

MM I've eaten one..

Contradictionincarnate Mon 18-Mar-13 11:46:10

stunt don't feel sorry for vq don't think it was just baby keeping her up!

Contradictionincarnate Mon 18-Mar-13 11:47:54

or rather vq was keeping Mr vq up! wink ...couldn't resist!

YellowWellies Mon 18-Mar-13 11:49:08

stunt messaged you on last thread - extreme sleeplessness, eczema, and colicky behaviour are classic CMPI even without reflux. Can't remember what else I wrote...

I'm going to bulk buy Easter eggs and scoff em in November when I wean the wee man. Sadly though all the ones I've seen have eat by dates in July. Grrrr. Meh on the plus side I am now lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight (though was a bit lardy when got knocked up) still at this rate I'll be my ideal weight in 7 weeks as I'm losing 2lb a week without trying. confused

MM lurgy has left the building and breast milk has cured conjunctivitis (though squirting milk in his eye pissed him off royally!) so yip see you at massage tomorrow xxx

Hi all!!

I have missed 2 or 3 threads I think. And only posted briefly & rarely on other threads. I just don't have time for more at the mo except today as I'm stuck in potty training DD & ignoring the housework blush as I just CBA

I just thought that if I was posting elsewhere a lot today, it would be rude not to say Hello to the quiche...

<waves manically> grin

Contradictionincarnate Mon 18-Mar-13 11:52:28

I eat a whole egg last Monday! and two boxes of rabbits ferraro roshie! ...must stop! sad
oh and fruit I couldn't post in the last Fred ...your spin and play was a bargain ...I had to get mine from amazon for 17 quid as I have still given up eBay for lent!

Contradictionincarnate Mon 18-Mar-13 11:53:25

hey chunky you have been missed!!

Pikz Mon 18-Mar-13 11:53:39

Just lost my big long post...

So here is a summary!

Daisy I didn't have a positive thing to say for nearly 8 weeks between weeks 4-12 when I was express feeding. These ladies tolerated and cheered me on day in day out.

In terms of bottles and sterilisers, I make all the days feeds first thing in morning whilst bouncing him in a bouncy chair. Milton tablets and a bucket have changed my world. Scrub bottle dump in bucket, get out, feed and repeat. Change water once a day. Means I don't have to find 6 mins to get the microwave steriliser going.

My other trick is to make casseroles when he naps and cook them during day, cheap healthy food that can be eaten with one hand and a spoon if he's being Velcro.

Don't know if any of this drivel helps!

Now mrs VQ were you up all night due to J or 8 inches ;)

YellowWellies Mon 18-Mar-13 12:07:45

Right I'm looking for a heavy duty baby carrier suitable for hillwalking that is clipped rather than tied and which doesn't put their hips in the wrong position - on which basis I've discounted all baby bjorns. Am I looking at the ergo? Any suggestions?

ValiumQueen Mon 18-Mar-13 12:11:07

J was up three times, DH only the once grin

Lily311 Mon 18-Mar-13 12:11:45

Bit of TMI, sorry. Period arrived first time after giving birth. Is it safe to use mooncup or shall I stick with towels this cycle?

StuntNun Mon 18-Mar-13 12:14:35

I reckon it's fine Lily; there shouldn't be any risk of infection now, that was only during lochia flow.
