"Thanks for sharing your story lena. My little man was born recently via emergency c section. The first night in hospital was a nightmare. Being numb didnt help as i couldnt move from the bed to pick him up or change him. I was at the mercy of the cheerful midwives to look after him. It was an exhausting night. We stayed in hospital for 5 days. I was never so happy to finally get him home..
Best wishes to u and your future x

"Emsy_Peeh, 2 months was a good effort! Even 2 weeks is admirable. If I have latching on problems with any babies I might have in the future, I won't be expressing for months like I have for my son. I don't see how it would be possible with more than one child to look after. In hindsight, I think my son and I would have been happier with just going onto formula. But al the end of the day, I'm pleased I gave it my best shot. Thanks for your comment. xx"

"Hi, probably by now things are falling into place for you, it is the setting up and planning prior to returning to work that cause the headaches. I have 3 children, 1 is 11, the other 6 and my baby 2 years. My first went into a home with a lady and it didn't work out that well, she had a good reputation, recommended by a Doctor's wife in the town we lived in then and she left a bruise mark, when she smacked her, lied to me and then said yes she had gotten angry. My second went to Day Care, where he got rid of lots of energy but also acted out some of the things he was seeing there, eg hitting, pulling toys out of hands etc. He became the "naughty" boy and I'm a part time teacher, with 10 years teaching up my sleeve so know that labelling like that aint cool. My 3rd currently goes to a caregiver, homebased childcare. I work 3 days and he goes there for 2, my caregiver is so flexible, I am very lucky to have found her. There are a few other kids there during the time he is there which he enjoys, they go to playgroup and dancing each week. She doesn't mind if I'm half an hour late or early, daycares have a definate cut off and usually charge extra when it is over the cut off. Hope this helps."
When my baby was a newborn (now 3 months) she was an angel until 3 weeks onwards,anything that could go wrong medcially and wasnt too bad, happend.
Is it a chemical imblance in your brain or is it the "New Mum" hormones etc...?

" Thanks for sharing your story ;-) PND is really tough. I wasn't diagnosed with it, but I think I was seriously borderline having it with my first. My experience with my second baby was so completely different, it made me realise just how tough those first couple of months were for me.
I don't know if it's always a chemical imbalance - in my case I think it was largely I had no family around to support me, and I was trying to do it all, and do it all perfect! And the breastfeeding was a major issue for us as well.
I'm glad you are feeling better - enjoy your girl!!!
A baby subjected to passive smoking has an increased risk of developing allergy-related diseases, respiratory diseases, infections in the middle ear, colic and cot death (SIDS).

"I believe it is really bad to smoke inside your home and vehicle if you have children but as i have a baby myself i know how it feels to be looked upon even though we smoke outside! It is a nasty habit to start and to kick but the first step that puts my mind at ease is that im making the attempt to do the best i can, the next best thing is to give up! One way i thought is how horrible it is to pop out side when its cold and raining to have that "much needed" ciggy so im going to give it a go at becoming a non smoker in the winter months with the help of patchs and gum etc :)"
