No car. To speak of.
we sold our maxi cosi through local faceache. Sold easy peasy.
What are those next2me cribs like? Someone wants to buy us one so interested to hear your opinionMrs Adam and I are two and out, so we're having a clear out:
Offering these outside of ebay to the CS collective. ?
Ebay is bad enough, not sure I have the tolerance for Faceache!we sold our maxi cosi through local faceache. Sold easy peasy.
It's been very very good to us, Mrs loved it as she didn't have to get up to feed in the night, and she's very close to us. We had two big daughters, and the weight limit is high. But they were both too big for it at 5 months. It has a higher weight limit than a moses basket etc.What are those next2me cribs like? Someone wants to buy us one so interested to hear your opinion
We tried the white noise app, and it worked, so we bought one of these:+1 for a white noise app, absolute godsend for getting them to sleep and then to stay asleep!
Also, for nappies and wipes, try using the 'Bum Deal' app - it's a live price comparison app and has saved us loads with our two.
We found having two moses baskets was useful (one upstairs, one downstairs) rather than trying to carry a sleeping baby up/down stairs in one.
Also gro-bags/similar are great for once they get a bit too big and fidgety for swaddling.
Standard procedure is to buy EVERYTHING, and then use 40-50% of it. If your Mrs wants another, she’ll hoard it all. If she doesn’t want another, she’ll probably still hoard it all...This is all good info for me as I don't really have a cute what we need, or more to the point whats worth investing in without wasting money on stuff we don't really need.
fb for sale section, best thing ever for a bed you will only have for a few years.Make sure you have plenty of loft space!
We’ve got so much shite up there. If we have another it’ll save us a fortune.
Currently looking at mid sleeper beds for him. Expensive for a shitty bit of mdf but a great storage solution in a small bedroom.
Yup, I always pull them downwards, so much easier!Dad tip for OP: Baby vests and baby grows can be removed two ways - the normal way of unbuttoning the poppers between the legs then pulling the vest up and over the head..... or (and this blew my mind when I first realised haha) they can be unfolded at the shoulders and removed downwards over the torso and legs.
This means when your baby does an explosive shart that escapes the nappy (always fun) you don't have to risk taking off the dirty clothing off by removing it over their head and face, making things worse.
Fasten your seatbelts!Well I wasn’t expecting when I made this thread that I’d be back in here so soon, we had our first scan today and there will be roughly 17 months between baby 1 and baby 2. Any tips from anyone!?
The youngest one is the only culprit! My elder child sleeps straight through, puts himself to bed after his story, etc - he’s so easy to deal with.Who’s the main culprit or does one set off the other? Our first has slept through the night right from about 10 weeks old so we’re probably a bit naiave.
boob milk and swaddle.So baby is here. 4 week old tomorrow.
Now I know instinct is still in total control here and I get it, I’m just wondering if anyone has any tips just to get baby down to sleep a bit easier. Just for a short while to actually maybe eat or shower. We have a sleepy head - like a tight pillow that you fit baby in snugly, the last 24 hours the exact moment she’s laid on something or not on our chest/in arms, she is f**king screaming.
I was just thinking maybe have a hot water bottle just to take the chill off whatever we’re putting her on/in.
I’ve had a month off work and it’s been going ok, the last day or so has been torrid and extremely tough. Missus had a c section so had a bit longer off to make sure she’s as good as possibly can be before I go back to work.
Like I say, it’s instinct, she wants to be with us cos we’re warm and safe but we need half hour to do stuff. I’m thinking more of when im back at work too as we’re sort of tag teaming atm.
Is she suffering from Reflux, or perhaps Colic? My first had Colic, second had Reflux - we used the specialist formulas for both (Aptamil) and that helped. We changed their bottles to MAM as well, which let air escape from the base, reducing the risk of wind.It’s definitely harder than what I thought but in a different way. I thought I’d struggle physically/task wise. Doing the nappies, night feeds, tiredness - I’ve been nowhere near as tired as I was in the hospital, I was trembling with tiredness by the end of the 3 days.
What I’m finding hardest is the screaming crying when it happens, normal crying that you’d say was baby letting you know I’m hungry/need changing etc I can deal with, almost block it out so to speak. But the screaming cry that they do till they can’t breathe f**k me, I lose my s**t very easily.
I would quite happily change 20 shitty nappies everyday if she didn’t cry. This might sound stupid but I think I’m going to bring some ear defenders in the house just to quieten the cry so I can keep calm a lot longer while round her. Im only in week 4 so no doubt there is going to be a lot more of that crying to come!
We’ve had MAM bottles from the start as her sister has 3 young kids and swore by them. We are on the third day I think with infacol, not sure how it’s going yet but maybe it might help, maybe not. I wouldn’t say we’ve had the 3 hours of screaming cry a day but we thought we’d use it and let it kick in just in case it was colic.Is she suffering from Reflux, or perhaps Colic?

A little trick for the breathless screaming - blow gently on her face, it’ll stop that straight away ? (seriously!)
