This thread's topic is what size of nappies are your babies in? And how are the cloth bum babies doing?

dicks yes, bring nappies. Unless you are going to be on the German border whereby you'd be able to nip over and buy them at UK prices. If you have to buy baby food Nestle Naturnes brand is the nicest. Well, the one that most resembles food anyway. Use evian or cristalline mineral waters to make up bottles (evian is much cheaper here, but cristalline is even cheaper - they are the two brands which are approved for baby bottles). Also, bring formula as Intermarche don't stock much other than Nestle.

Where are you going? The weather is wonderful btw.

Oh and don't touch LeaderPrice with a bargepole. They make Aldi look like Waitrose. Intermarche much better for everything - they all, without exception ime have good fish, meat and fruit and veg. A bit more expensive but they support local communities. I go out of the way to my nearest one.

But obviously the local market will be even better.

Can't believe I am jealous at someone coming to France. Am so boredof my local area , which is great. I just love France so much I want to spend my time travelling round it and eating all the food and drinking the lovely wine

Happy birthday MsJJ glad the week ended well for you. I feel immensely proud of H. He has gone from a tiny dot struggling to breath to a gorgeously sunny tempered, determined and funny little butterball. I cannot tell you how amazingly happy it makes me to see his little chubby thighs and watch him smiling at people!

You know those white plastic garden chairs? Flimsy. Especially when a toddler decides to climb on them. I don't know how she didn't break something. Just a bump to the forehead. Lucky girl, no need for a&e. Before the summer is out there will be a broken limb. She climbs on everything. I'm sure I wasn't as mad as her at that age. Hopefully lesson learned anyway...

Fingers crossed PR and VQ!!!! Let us know how you get on.

First bday meet up would be great, though I'm toying with idea of November holiday!

TooManyDicksOnTheDancefloor Fri 12-Jul-13 22:11:20

Thanks for the replies everyone! We're going to Montignac in the Dordogne region PR, thanks for all of the info, very useful. So how much are nappies? There's a lidl 15km away, I usually buy lidl nappies anyway, I don't know if I can fit 100 nappies in the cases, we're flying Ryanair, we only get 15kg and 20kg!

TooManyDicksOnTheDancefloor Fri 12-Jul-13 22:14:00

Hey PP,didn't know you still had a bug! We've been to Suffolk and Glastonbury in the van so far this year. We're going to Viva Skegvegas Aug bank holiday, haven't decided on Action yet.

Kyzordz Fri 12-Jul-13 22:33:14

Glad she's ok pr kids do some crazy things don't they! I remember being fond of climbing huuuuge trees as a child. We also enjoyed sitting in wash baskets and throwing each other down the stairs!!

Neeeearly at the end of the Fred nows, and as you can see I didn't get to bed early sad

MsJupiterJones Fri 12-Jul-13 22:51:53

Thank you for the birthday wishes folks. I do feel very lucky and burst with pride when I hear people say L looks lovely and chubby, such a change from those early months when all I got was 'gosh he's very small!'

PR sorry to hear about the garden chair accident. Chairs are so tempting to play on but so easy to tip over.

I am in bed & hoping for a quiet night, slightly worried about room temp but what can you do. N'night & see you all on the new Fred!
