I don't know what my baby wants when he cries
babies-and-toddlers / general-babies

Hey, I'm a first time mum and I'm struggling a bit with my LO and his crying. I feel like I'm automatically supposed to know what my baby wants when he cries but I really don’t have a clue and he keeps crying all the time. I don't want to tell my health visitor because I don't want her to think I'm a bad mum. How do other mums know what their baby needs? Please help !

Now he wants to be on the birth certificate
crisis / custody-and-legal

My baby son's dad is not named on his birth certificate and he hasn't got his surname either. The reason for this is because we aren't married and when you aren't married, both parents have to be present at the registration and since he wasn't remotely interested for the first 16 weeks of my baby’s life, he didn't come with me to register his birth. He has been such an a** hole that I just don't want anything to do with him because he has made no attempt to contact me until my baby boy was 16 weeks old. My little boy deserves more than this, it makes me cry all the time that I had a baby with such a waste of space. But now suddenly (and I don’t know why) he wants to be on the birth certificate and wants access. I don’t want him in my son’s life at all but

My 15 year old teenage daughter is pregnant!
tweens-and-teens / pregnancy

Hi  I'm hoping someone out there can give me some much needed advice over what to do as I am in melt down over the fact that I have just found out my 15 year old daughter is pregnant.  I don't know where I have gone so wrong as a parent, she has been a ticking time bomb for a couple of years now but this is a whole new ball game. Now there is another life involved. The father is a boy who she is at school with and about as much use as a chocolate tea pot by all accounts. I haven't spoken with his parents yet as I'm still coming to terms with the news myself.  I'm not sure what to do about it, we did a test when she finally came clean and she's 17 weeks! Which is awful, as it's way past the point of termination in my eyes, the baby is a baby at

Is it the end?
crisis / separation-and-divorce

6 months ago my husband left me for another woman and a month ago he came back begging for me to take him back and saying he'd made a mistake, but I don't know if i want him back now. I don't know what to do or who to listen to. Just so confused. He really hurt me and the kids so badly but they all want hims back.

Can't get out of debt !
work-and-money / worries-and-debt

Hi , I'm looking for a bit of advice really, I'm in so much debt and can't get myself out of it, I just about manage to make the payments each month, but there's more money going out than I've got coming in, so I can't get myself straight. Every year or so I have to get another loan to pay off my credit cards and overdraft, so all the money I've paid back on the loans has been for nothing, because the total amount of debt remains the same. I've got 3 kids under 6 so I can't work full time because I'd have to pay a nursery more than I can earn. I used to work before the kids came along but my jobs were shop work and the money isn't great and nurseries around my area charge 6.00 p/h for each child, so that would be £12 an hour for two of my kids then after school fees (&po
