Kinsey - I'm fairly certain infant gaviscon is prescription only and the bottled stuff is for over 6. I have an almost full box (sorry the actual box is bogging!) here which I've just found in date at the back of the cupboard if you want me to send it? It will probably last a week or so so long enough to find out if it works! message me if you want it!
Vixo - it's such a vicious circle isn't it? Especially when away or with visitors. Hope something works soon. I always found homemade rice pudding worked withmy boys getting them to sleep through. I'm guessing it's got enough long lasting carb even though it is a funny choice before bedtime! Wedding sounds fab!
vaccines - we're all done and sorted here. But had an interesting conversation with my friend who is an ex paediatrI nurse and who has a very autustic son. She swears (in the face of current research) that the mmr is what caused her son's autism as she can see changes in photographs within a week. However, her feeling is he probably had some form of neurological issue that the vaccine triggered (she did say what but I can't remember!) and still reckons it would have triggered at some point but that the mmr accelerated the issue.
Vixo - I have to agree the parents who rely on herd immunity really annoy me. When they thought I had whooping cough last year the amount of people who were trying to placE Barriers in my way (including the childminder!) about where my children could go even though my children are vaccinated and were asymptomatic really annoyed me. Especially as in at least two cases it was pure laziness. Rah!
cc - I'm wearing purple today too . I'm going to use Facebook (or similar) to write rude messages when I'm old
feeling a touch better today. Went back to docs yest do on another course of steroids and a different antibiotic. This is all feeling very reminiscent of twelve months ago! i think I would be a similar state if my asthma wasn't more under control so at least I haven't got that to deal with. At least we know what's going on now.
Right should go a. I have a crib to pick up. Discovered they don't make mattreses to fit our Moses basket any more (they're now too long) so it's working out cheaper to get a second hand crib (at least I can antibac and clean it to my hearts content!) and get a new mattress. Only one I could source for ours was £25 with a non washable cover which given I've had two reflux babies I didn't really fancy!
