frankie and benny's

I have come to the conclusion that Ollie is too high energy for restaurants!!

Glad the bum situation is improving

Hi ladies!

Jo hope the milk supply is a bit better, i was going to suggest uping the water intake as Helen suggested. Glad to hear she is happy, hope your feeling a bit better xxx yep my hair is not as thick, hair cut Tuesday and not sure I'll need it thined like I normally do.

Helen did ollie enjoy his F&B visit today then? Did you have a nice time catching up with friends?

Rach glad to hear the rash is getting better. Did he enjoy is nappy free time? How are you feeling today? x

Just popping on to catch up after our first bed time by ourselves. DH out on work drinks, so i met a friend for a harvester then back home for bedtime. You weren't allowed to take a buggy into the resturant! Bit stupid, as i said the the women he can hardly sit in a high chair, thought they were family friendly! So we had to sit in the noicey bar as you can have a pram in there! Then an hour wait for food! luckily Foley, despite being awake the whole time, was a very good boy and only cried at the end as was hot and past normal bath time. Dog's been very cute tonight being the man about the house, he watched Foleys bath, head over it right next to me, and been laying right by us all night.

Ollie is a handful in restaurants as he really wants to be off exploring but obviously can't.

Can't recomend f&b's enough - the staff were great and gave us a corner booth so we could roll 2 prams up to it and were thoroughly pleasant about the babies.

Pizza express is also v child friendly - and you can get 2-4-1 deals there...

Rach, hope things are improving. One day Thomas just started taking the boob. He was about 6 weeks and things just slotted into place. I had to keep expressing every day though and gradually decreased it by 1 minute every few days. I was offerring the breast every time and he used to latch on for a few mins then come off. I honestly don't know why he just took the breast but I was so relieved when he did. Now I have tried the brown nuk teats and he will take one of those very occassionally so what I would suggest is not to stop the bottes all together because you want to be sure you can have some time to yourself and he can be fed by someone else.

I know it's really hard but just persevere and try and make sure he is latched on as well as you can. He got a little blister on his top lip too but that's very common.

With regards his sore bums, try metanium too. Its really good and ued in some of our hospitals by the tissue viability nurse. If you have any specific questions I'd love to try and help because I know how stressful it is xx

We dont take Euan to restaurants anymore either. He is too impatient. We usually take stuff for him because he has never eaten anything we have ordered off a menu yet and once he is in a chair he knows its food time and he cant cope with waiting. He is too much of a pain for it and yes lots of mess on the floor deliberately usually.

Does anyone know which nappies have the least chemicals in them please? I have tried baby with Pampers & Huggies and the rash is still there. I am thinking of changing to reusables. HIs bum is really getting me down.

Everyone has an opinion on what to try and imo, my baby has v sensitive skin and none of the creams agree with him. I used to be allergic to everything as a child, I wonder if he takes after me! Even the cream the doc gave us hasnt worked.

So far, the following have not worked!
- metanium
- sudocrem
- canestan
- hydrocortesone cream from doc
- washing in just cotton wool & water
- wiping with just olive oil
- applying whisked egg white
- waitrose bottom butter
- vaseline as a barrier cream

he is currently on the floor having no-nappy time. This is hour 3 and no change really. I am almost at my wits end, what with this and the bf.

Go Ollie, 3 teeth already woo hoo!!

Thanks for the support Dee. It is so hard, I feel like giving up every day but somehow manage to not! I went to bf cafe today and he was feeding or 1.5 hours on the shield. He was still hungry after that though so I resigned myself to havng a week on the sofa feeding him constantly to get my supply up and to get him refining his suckle. However as soon as got home, I settled down and he was screaming his head off, completely inconsolable. After 30 mins of trying to get him on, I gave him a bottle. I just can't see bf working for me.

Lou, cant believe you couldnt take buggy in the restaurant! Bit harsh.

Rach - if it's really stressing you out maybe set a date that you can aim for - if it's not working by then look at exc pumping or ff - it really isn't worth making yourself unhappy - you should be enjoying your LO and bf shouldn't get in the way - you have given it a brilliant go and LO has had a great start on your milk.

As for the bum - def keep on at the dr - and mention your allergy issue - it could be related - and if it is it might not help trying one thing after the other iyswim.

Big hugs - you are doing so well to be coping with all this on your plate.

AFM - Ollie is 6 mths today!!!! been to a baby group and nana's - with my nephew, Auntie and cousins - shattered!!!
