I BF my twins until they were 8 months and stopped in November, I still haven't had my AF. I don't want it back but at the same time a bit worried.

try the medela special needs bottle...are you in the UK? if so they sell it on mothercare.com...if not I think they call it a Haberman bottle in the US but it's the same thing. It worked for us, in fact I'm thinking of reintroducing it as my 7.5month old now won't take a bottle again! Good luck.

NUK bottles

is anyone using NUK bottles? I have been struggling to find a bottle my girls will take (still BF'ing) and they seem to like the NUK bottles with the latex teats - the only problem is they seem to take ages for them to take the milk. I have bought medium, 2 which says it's for 6 - 18 months but it i...

Hi Kipatte,

we moved back as our visa's were dependent on my job and I wasn't ready to return to work, we also wanted to be closer to family so we can have a bit of help now and again! We're in Yorkshire in the wet and wind!!

hello, sorry it's been so long - so much has happened! We relocated back to the UK about 2 weeks ago and so it's been crazy. For the record I don't recomend a 15 hour plane journey and 8 hour time difference for 5 month old twins!! I was on such a good schedule and it all went out the window. 2 week...

hayley, thanks for sharing your schedule, it's refreshing to hear another mum having a similar day to mine and its not just me having issues with inadeqate naps. i sometimes think i read to much and give myself a hard time that we're not getting 3x 1.5hr naps per day and a 12 hour stint at night! .....

Hi kipatte, your post made me smile - I'm a Brit living in America (although moving home in September ...but that's a whole different post); I've lived here 3 years now and couldn't believe the size of the washer and dryer when we bought our house (and the fridge!). Fortunately or unfortunately, I c...
