Hair got my attention. Not that I lost any, but my hair USED to be naturally curly. Now it's almost straight and I hate it! I put a binky down on the jumperoo after I sat Stephie in it. She picked it up, put it in her mouth, then started jumping around. She is acting like such a big girl now. Boy it...

Hi Cocoa:

Sorry to hear about your relationship but you are right not to tolerate that behavior. Better to catch it now then later. Protect those kids! What a good Mom you are.

Hi Everyone, RebeccaJ, the U.S. should give longer maternity times. Oh well, it sounds like you are glad to be back in the U.K? I took Stephie off all solids because she started waking constantly. As soon as I took her off she slept through the night. Will start her again in a few days. She has 3 mo...

Hi RebeccaJ:

I am taking that same trip to the states but only for 3 weeks at Christmas time. I am nervous about it. Stephie will be 8 months then.

Curious, why did you move back and what area?

Hi Cocoa: Hmmmmm, breastfeeding didn't work for me at all. I was so sad because I really wanted to and I liked going to the Breastfeeding club which I now don't go to because it didn't work. Of course that was months ago. I have two baby clubs. One of friends I have made and we alternate houses each...

I was reading one of my American books and it was talking about the 4 month well visit. I then realized that we don't have well visits here in the U.K.

Yikes!

Hi Ladies: What wonderful moms we all are! Our babies are so lucky. Regarding naps. I am using the two hour rule which seems to work. After she has been awake for two hours I calm her (either in swing or just put her down) for a nap and she usually goes right away. If I am out she falls asleep in th...

Hi Rebecca: Your email made me laugh as well. I hope you have found the Americans as welcoming and friendly as I have found the brits. If you have not discovered it yet try out Lakeshore learning. They have color discovery boxes and the Alphabet boxes I can't wait to get. I can't get them in England...

Hi Mandy: Welcome back! The clothes line reminds me. When I moved to England from the states I could not believe anyone could live without a tumble dryer. I insisted on getting one for the house. I have never hung up clothes in my life. My neighbor says she wouldn't own a tumble dryer. And I am find...

Hi Everyone: Just reading through some of the posts. It is sometimes confusing because there is so much information out there and sometimes it seems contradictory. I was told not to swaddle her after we got home from the hospital because baby's get too hot and need to move their arms. She's been a g...

Hi WC: I think I will get the book. Stephie sleeps well but I do love to read. Stephie loves her buggies. We have one for travel (quinny zap) which her car seat fits into. Then we have the bugaboo which she loves and we use to stroll on the beach and round the neighborhood. We just converted out of ...

Hi All: I see everyone is really busy with their babies. Is anyone going to a baby group? Who is going back to work and who is staying at home. I never in a million years thought I would be able to stay at home but our move to England will let me stay home with the baby at least her first two years....
