Hello where ever you are i hope that you are all well.
To new Mums and Dads congratulations on the new arrivals, i hope that everything went well.
Time to try and get peoples attention and really talk about things like online coffee morning for mums and dads or couple’s whoever wants to join in feel free.
I would like as many people talking so that when you actually get to know each other it won’t matter where you come from what color your skin is what nationality you everyone is very welcome to join.
As i expressed in my last blog it is important that new mums talk and they get help if it is needed, it is going to be a place where you are going to be understood and not just brushed off.
Talking about what you want to.
Telling the people or person who you are talking to what your feeling was maybe nitty gritty or funny you make your choices of what you like to talk about.
Please tell me what your dislikes were when you were pregnant or maybe you are pregnant and you have strong dislikes of smells and tastes of foods.
I was thinking of posting about food dislikes when you are pregnant and the things you crave the silly foods you wake for in the middle of the night.
I loved raspberry jam with cream cheese twister ice creams
I absolutely hated the smell of chicken and coffee the taste as well
I loved strong tasty fruit sweets.
What the thoughts on nappies?
What foods would you feed your baby?
Do you prefer the disposable or terry nappies?
Would you use just a papoose or would you take a pram as well?
Terry nappies used to be used so much and ok awkward but much better you would just throw away the liner and wash the nappy.
Disposable nappies are quick access and they don’t disintegrate very quickly so not very good for the environment.
When do you start giving your baby solid foods and how much, how many times a day?
Have you used baby rice in the bottles to supplement the babies feed?
Where do you babies sleep do they sleep in their cribs or cots or do they sleep with mum and dad?
When does mum get a little bit of time for herself and when does she take it or is it just when the baby goes to sleep.
What type of bedding do you use?
Do you swaddle your baby for comfort and security which babies love to feel loved and secure?
What sort of Prams do you buy?
Would you buy a good make of pram to last or would you buy two or three so you spend a lot more money on products rather than buy a quality pram that will last the time and possibly last for the next baby or sell knowing it is a good quality product?
Do you use cot quilts or do you use blankets what do you prefer?
Do you get lonely as a mum at home on your own if so would you look into joining a new mums group how would you go about joining and would you like to join somewhere and make new friends?
Do you have pets are your pets trained around babies and children do or would you trust them if they were in the room when you are not present in the room?
Funny stories we need stories that will make others smile and that coffee morning feeling that you have friends around.
Coffee mornings online skype which i aim to set up very soon so mums and dads can chat i will set up a room for a variety of people to chat i hope this will please everyone when it happens.
When would you start your toddler in a playgroup or toddler group integrating the baby or toddler with other children it is really important to get your children.
Would or do you sing to your babies to encourage them and help them to hear words?
Would you leave your pram with a baby in it outside of a shop with no one there with the baby?
Do you go out very often with your children to restaurants or cafes do you think they are child-friendly if not what do you think they could make easier to take your children and babies to these places and what would you actually change in the places that you visit.
Conversations with other people do you sit and talk to people when you have your children or babies with you?
Do you start the conversation when you out or do you wait for someone to start the conversation if you hold off starting a conversation is it because you are not sure or is it because you are not used to people talking or starting the conversation?
What things actually drive you crazy when you are out with your children or do you get really upset when you have a young baby and maybe a toddler to look after but the toddler pushes your patience, what do you do when you are in this situation and you are in the street and the older child demands things and knows that you can’t and won’t put up with the way he or she are behaving do you wait until you get home do you ignore them and not give or do you give in to the demands of the child just for peace of mind.
Do you think it is essential that we bring our children up to respect other people no matter what others are brought up like or do you let your child do as they like?
So we have now come to the crunch what do we talk about on a daily basis and would you be willing to continue and talk on skype and start a chat group new mums, mums with older children and grandparents to put their thoughts in as well let me know what your thoughts are please?
Please ask as many questions as you like leave comments or contact me on my email i will reply and i promise to set up a skype account for group chats.
