How to stay dry at night?
babies-and-toddlers / potty-training

My daughter is 3.5, she's been dry in the day for about 4 months but I haven't attempted nights yet. I need some advice before I go there... How do you keep them dry at night? I need routine ideas, so she can start going through the night. Does anyone use those dry nights pyjama pants ? How long does it take? Do you put a potty in the room?  Sorry for all the questions, just never done this before !

Hair washing problems!
babies-and-toddlers / general-toddlers

Just finished washing my 2 year old's hair, what a mission!! OMG! She's HARD WORK! Screaming before I even put any water on her hair! I'm so careful too, I make her put her head back so the water doesn't go in her eyes and it didn't even go in her eyes she was just crying and screaming for the sake of it working herself into a frenzie which really wound me up! Does anyone else have this problem? My older daughter wasn't like this, only if I actually got water in her eyes ( or soap : [ I was less experienced with her).

I can't stop eating!
health / exercise-and-diet

This is a gross problem I have. I literally eat all day! I'm at home all day with my 3 year old and have been since she was born. My days feel so long and I'm quite bored. I'm missing adult company and working. But I don't want anyone else to bring her up, so I'm comfort eating, my partner says I should go on a diet because I'm getting fat! That's really perked me up, the bad thing is that it's made me eat even more because I feel ugly now as well. I know it's my own doing but I've got into this vicious cycle now. I told my partner how he made me feel and he said he thought if he said that it would make me stop eating, he didn't realise I'd start eating even more. My friends don't really come round any more, my clothes don't fit so I'm living in sweatpants and baggy tops which is really at

Painful breastfeeding
babies-and-toddlers / breast-bottle-feeding

My baby is now a week old and I've been breastfeeding since she was born. But it's so painful, every time she feeds it makes me cry. My nipples are cracked and bleeding, they crust over and then she feeds again and they become even more painful. It's got to the stage where I wondering how much longer I can cope, my boyfriend said to go onto formula if it's that painful, but I feel like I've failed if I do that. I'm just hoping someone can give me some good advice so I can keep going and not be in so much pain. Because I know how great the benefits of breastfeeding are and I want that for my little girl.

Switching to formula
babies-and-toddlers / breast-bottle-feeding

Can someone give me some advice on how to get my baby to feed from a bottle. I've breastfed him for the last 4 months, but I have to go back to work and need to get him used to a bottle, I can't get on with expressing, just can't get enough. I have tried a few times but he gags on the teat and spits out the milk.  Any advice?
