Am I a bad mum

For not doing much of the comfort nursing stuff? Well, not letting him comfort nurse very often? I'm not saying that I make him go miserable, I just prefer to calm him in other ways. You could...

Re: Routines?

Zac's pretty flexible. He's out with me most days, doing stuff with the dogs (I do agility with one and sheep trials with the other), shopping, doing whatever really. I'm not afraid to whip out a...

Re: Wednesday Whines and Woohoos!

Whine: My sister is here for 'just a few days'. I love her, but I don't really need the added 'child' (she's 20, and still relies on Dad for everything from money to somewhere to crash) to deal...

Re: Breastfeeding bottle question

The only thing I could think of would be to get her more used to drinking from a bottle. Zac has been bottle fed BM since he was about 2wks, and gets usually at least two a day because Dom wants to...

Re: Fighting sleep? Poll

Zac goes down easy, and stay asleep. The trick to have a baby that sleeps through anything is to not tiptoe around them. We put Zac down to bed in the lounge in his porta cot while we are watching...

Re: Following in your footsteps

Ian said last night that he never, ever wants kids... Probably due to the fact that Zac has been unusually fussy and grumpy recently. Lauchie will have kids, whether or not he says he wants them,...

Re: New here with outside opinions needed

As a cop, I see the definition of 'acceptable' physical discipline and abuse get blurred all the time. I have only ever lightly smacked Ian once, when he ran out in front of a car and I actually had...

Re: What time of day

If Dom's training then he's up at 4:30-5am and I'm up with him. He's gone by 5:30, 5:45 absolute latest, so I usually throw a load of washing in, have a shower, do my hair, do some cleaning before 7...

Quick Update on me.

Sorry I have been MIA for a while. I miscarried on the 28th and that pretty much screwed up everything in my head. Added to this was the arrival of my little brother, Lauchie (16), in a shiny cop...

That is rather funny, maybe not quite at the time though xD. Zac spit up on my boss a few weeks back. Like not just a little bit either. I'm lucky he has kids of his own and his youngest is 18mo. ...
