Can't lose my baby weight!
health / body-issues

I thought that when I had my baby, my body would go back to my old shape after a few months. But it's been 6 months now and I'm still two stone overweight. I've stopped breastfeeding now and I'm trying not to eat too much but I still have a big belly and look pregnant, especially under my belly button, it's really flabby and I know that's hard to get that bit toned. How did other mums get rid of their baby belly ?

Can my hubby get in the birthing pool?
pregnancy / the-birth

I'm starting to like the idea of a water birth and was wondering whether my husband will be allowed to get in too? Has anyone had a water birth on here? Can you tell me what the experience is like? Was your partner able to join you? And what was the pain like?  I'm currently 28 weeks pregnant with my second baby. Very excited, it's a girl and we have a boy already, feeling very blessed : )

Spots and feeling rubbish

My 4 month old breastfed baby's constipated
babies-and-toddlers / potty-training

Hi, I'm wanting to know if this is normal. My 4 month old baby only does a poo every 4 or 5 days. He doesn't seem to be in pain or anything but it seems a bit strange. He's breastfeed only. I have another child who holds her poo in so I don't want to have a repeated cycle. Please can someone give some advice on this. Thank you.

How can I get my toddler to eat vegetables?
babies-and-toddlers / weaning-food

My 2 year old son has become extremely picky lately. He used to eat anything I put infront of him, but recently he's become a really fussy eater and point blank refuses to eat any vegetables on his plate. He also doesn't want to eat fruit much either. I'm also finding that one day he'll eat a certain food and the next day he won't, saying he doesn't like it, even though he really enjoyed it before, what's that about? If anyone has any good advice on how to get my DS eating fruit and veg again please let me know.
