welly trouble?

Posted: 21/03/2011 at 10:32
Sara had the same thing - but then I found out that her chunky legs were too fat to allow her feet to get into proper foot bit of the boot!! :lol: Bad mummy. I'd just bought them and shoved them on her, she took a couple of steps and went flying!

However, presuming you're not a bad mummy like me; maybe he's just getting used to being in boots instead of shoes? If I've not worn my wellies for a while they do feel a bit odd...hope he gets the hang of it soon

FFS - why can't people leave things alone. I too had got a new notebook, was beginning to feel like an organised mummy for the first time in my life and now its all gone... :evil:

problems weaning...please help

Hey, g/c from toddler, I would say that if she's refusing then maybe she's not ready. Just because she's turned 6 months doesn't mean she's automatically ready. I would give it a few days and try again - the last thing you want to happen is for you to get stressed and for her to get apprehensive every time she gets put in a highchair.

Is she showing signs of being ready? Supporting herself properly/interested in your food/sitting? What about (as someone else suggested) going down the BLW route? With my LO I did a combination of finger food and spoon feeding, worked well for us but BLW has worked well for others - I can't really comment on it as I haven't tried it.

I started Sara on sweet potatoe puree and butternut squash puree - they both puree really smoothly and are quite sweet to the taste - remember breast/formula milk are both sweet. However, as I said before I would wait a few days and try again tbh - if she's pushing it out with her tongue and gagging then I feel that suggests she's not ready, maybe use the extra few days to get in the kitchen and cook a few batches of veg to freeze in ice cubes, its great to have them in stock.

Also, can I ask why are you starting with breakfast? Maybe your HV suggested it. What worked for us was to start with lunch - this was between milk feeds so she was a little peckish but not starving, not tired and I felt comfortable feeding veg at that time of day!

I hope I haven't been too blunt - I'm tired and when I'm tired I lack tact!!! Hope what I've said is helpful,

Sara's been doing this for a while so I sewed the popper flaps closed, means its a bit more tricky to get my wriggling octopus into it but she can't get out...mwahahahahaha - feel like an evil mummy!!

Thanks girlies for you birthday wishes - had an amazing day, very relaxed, and then a little tea party this afternoon with all of Sara's favourite people. Will be putting some pics on fb soon - once I find some decent ones!!!


What size feet?

Posted: 12/01/2011 at 15:53
Had Sara's feet measured today, as the last time we went she was too small for anything in stock!!! So today...still no shoes!!! She was measured a 2.5F, however she tried them on there was hardly any growing room and the 3's were massive. So we're going to have to wait a little longer. She's been wearing little Next shoes that are fab - suede soles with little rubber bits, so I'm not in a rush - the guy in clarks even checked them to see if they were ok for size as he couldn't sell me any of his!

Exciting times!!!

This is great news...fingers crossed everything continues in a positive streak for you. Sara have never slept through the night, and its really got bad the last few weeks, so I feel your pain. Think its because she's learning to walk and talking a lot. Sleep deprivation is torture - awful.

Keep us posted xxx

hot drinks?

nor do we flimpo! So far I've been so pleased she likes water from her cup I've been reluctant to give her anything else incase she decides the water is boring!!! There's enough time for her to acquire a taste for other stuff

Happy 1st Birthday Leon!
