    I just sometimes feel like I'm on the computer (on facebook and b&b); time I should be spending with LO :huh:

    Makes me feel bad. I love cuddles with him and I spend all the time I can with him, but sometimes I put a bottle in and try to rest him and then I sit here or FB.

    I know it's silly cos baba is sleeping and we all need our "OFF" time, but just wondering what's excessive...

    If you feel that you are on here too much, then maybe you are :shrug:

    I have a rule now that the laptop doesn't go on until she's in bed! I'd spend the whole day on here otherwise :lol: I have a quick browse on my phone while she's napping or playing but don't post much!

    I pop on now when Ellie's asleep if I've got the chores done and then of an evening for a bit. I used to be on here a lot more when she was younger. I was too tired to do any housework and she was asleep, so why not! But now if I turn the computer on while she's awake then she just wants to tap the keyboard and it's pointless.

    I only come on if Bella has an afternoon nap and the chores are done and when she's in bed and DH is on the Wii/Xbox. I'd feel guilty if i just left her to play and sat on the computer, i enjoy playing with her!

    I wonder this too sometimes but I only really use it when LO is sleeping (she naps ALOT :rofl:), plus I tend to be a lot lazier when its cold outside, as soon as Spring comes round me and Ivy will barely even be in the house at all! If he's sleeping or preoccupied I don't think you need to feel bad at all :hugs:

    It's a double-edge situation. I come on here, get really great advise and try implement them at home and on the other hand I want my son's comfort and he needs mine. Maybe maybe having mixed emotions just 4 days before I start work fulltime again

    I will admit I was alot more on here during my pregnancy. I was a bit paranoid and just passing time really. Now I come on if I have a concern and need airing them or getting advice so that I can do the best possible I can. I suppose we'll always be worried we're doing things the right way and what works for us. Developing a well-balanced child is a fulltime and sensitive task.

    Im on here all day pretty much. My husband is laid off and we are starting another business from home and most of the work right now is from the computer. Charlie is still little and sleeps all day, wakes up to eat and goes back to sleep, when hes awake Im generally not on the computer and Im off for the night at dinner

    mine sleeps for 3hrs every morning even at 7mths and is in bed for the night 7.30pm latest so I have loads of time... I dont go near it though if she is awake, that is her time, at 7mths she likes me playing with her and if I am not doing that I am preparing her lunch / our dinner / dealing with our 6yr old.
