• Do they make tights for boys? If not would you put your son in them?

    My 12 month old will not keep socks/shoes/slippers anything on his feet, he rips them off like 2 minutes after you put them on. So i was thinking about getting him some tights, of course i would look to see if they make them in boy colours, eg black, blue or even white, because thats neutral or even if they made ones specifically for boys.

So i was thinking about getting him some tights, of course i would look to see if they make them in boy colours, eg black, blue or even white, because thats neutral or even if they made ones specifically for boys. At the moment its winter here and im having trouble keeping his feet warm, so if you have any other ideas also they would be appreciated Its the middle of winter and we are both sick. I have bought him lace up shoes, velcro shoes, boots, etc and he rips them off, no matter what i do he takes them off. i have lost countless shoes and socks over the last few months when he rips them off at the mall while he is in the push chair. Of course i would put jeans on over the top and never take him out in just tights, because that would just be gay

  • Do you have to pay to give birth in a hospital in the uk?

    I mean you get free medical care, so it seems stupid to have to pay. But i remember my grandma saying she had to pay more for one of her daughters. I'm guessing not, but just checking lol.

    my son has just been diagnosed with diabetes so im still tryin to gather as much info as possible. i need advice on healthy snacks. at the moment he's having either banana/apple or milk and its probably gettin a bit boring. are there any suggestions? a diabetic can t take anything with high sugar content compared to the carohydrate. fruit jars are definately out cos they are mostly sugar (bout 80% at least). i need some quick snacks that i can prepare. he must avoid grapes n sugary fruit but he can take a small amount. thanks btw he'll be 1 year on the 14th i orederd a book last week and its takin frikkin ages to come! i have spoken to his dietician but my son is the youngest case with diabetes so its really trial and error.. they dnu what will work n what won't. its extremely worrying cos im just lost. im studyin bout diabetes and gettin even more lost! i ve contacted the association of diabetes and was given a name of a person to speak to, but im alrdy in contact with her. im off to the hospital again tomorrow and hopefully get more answers. i was just hopin i can find someone who i can ask TONS of questions to.. without scarin them off :) sry i didn t realise i didnt add it -- he's type 1 diabetes and needs 2/3 insulin shots a day. i d love to make him a cake and i need tons of recipes. thanks :)

I'm proud to say my friend is going on her third child at age 17 and is graduating and has a job and a guy who supports her. are there any teens out here are being pulled down and why?

  • Do you believe parents should have the choice on whether or not to deny their child medical care?

    We all know the vaccination debate - some believe the childs health is better without them, some believe all children should, where possible, be vaccinated.

    We all know the vaccination debate - some believe the childs health is better without them, some believe all children should, where possible, be vaccinated. We say it is our right as parents to decide this. But where does this end? A textbook example would be that of a Jehovah's witness. Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that the Bible prohibits eating blood, and that this includes the storage and transfusion of blood, including in cases of medical emergency. So, if their child was involved in an accident, and desparately needed blood - the bible forbids this. Without the blood, the child will die. Who has the right to decided - the drs, or the parents? In the United States, many physicians will agree to explore and exhaust all non-blood alternatives in the treatment of children at the request of their legal guardians. However, some state laws require physicians to administer blood-based treatment to minors if it is their professional opinion that it is necessary to prevent immediate death or severe permanent damage. Do you believe that parents should have unlimited control over their childs medical care, and possibly, their life? This is a really interesting article about a canadian mother and father of sextuplets, who had their parental rights revoked, after refusing to allow drs to give blood to the 4 survivng babies - http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/wo... Jude's Mummy - In the UK, drs have to apply to a court for permission to treat the child. Which may not be suitable in an emergency situation, I am unsure of the protocal for emergencys. Erskine - I appreiate that, my friends uncle was a Thalidomide baby. I am more steering towards the side of emergency treatment, where we dont have the time to research other options - where we have to act now as death is imminent. H4 - Again, in cases where death is imminent from an existing life threatening condition is a little different. If there really is nothing the drs could do to save the life, then I think everyone would be in agreement that it would be a little more humane not to prolong the patients suffering. But that is a great point, I hadnt thought of.

    My ex partner is the father of my 2 year old son, and has been at best a sporadic parent since we split up a year ago. He hasn't seen him since his birthday 2 months ago, and now wants to see him this coming monday. I said OK, provided that he didn't mess up again and that the first time he did I would have to stop it. He agreed, and then threw into conversation that his new girlfriend is taking them. Ordinarily this wouldn't bother me, except this woman has a serious problem with me and is actually slightly psychotic. She's never met me, but he's told her a load of lies about me, and she's believed it (as you would). Now I'm seriously concerned that if she sees my son she will tell him a load of crap about Mummy, and that will upset him and no doubt make him misbehave even more than he normally does after he's seen his dad. I said it was OK, purely because he won't see him for ANOTHER 2 weeks if I don't, and then a friend directed me to his girlfriend's facebook sight where I found this abuse aimed at me: "***********" is thinking little girl ur a joke. U need to get a life, or a hobby (preferably one that doesnt involve sleeping with any man who looks at u...) Thanks ladies! Just ***'s ex playing her pathetic games again. Have had one of his friends on the phone in tears because she kicked off at them about us...pathetic little girl IS going to bloody well learn! You are prob the only bloke in ******* she hasnt already had! lol! So now I don't know - do I let my son go with them on Monday, or not? The likelihood is that if I don't, my ex will cause yet more rows between me and friends, and if he can my new partner. But if I do, what will my son have to hear?? I just don't know what to do :(((( Thats what I've said to him amy - I wont let ANYONE say a bad word about his dad to him, even though he's a complete @rsehole, so why are they allowed to?

The third time we had sex, was a few weeks later and we were both pretty wasted and this is so stupid, yet kind kind of humorous...we used a garbage bag instead of a condom. It was only for a few minutes and he didn't finish and I'm still on the pill. A few days later I took a pregnancy test to confirm for the first 2 times and it came out negative. Should I be okay? we used condoms both times *

    Hi all, There's been a bit of an issue between me and my *now* ex partner, and a few other relatives, because i don't like leaving my son. Every now and again i get asked to go out with friends for the night, clubbing, pubbing etc. I choose not to go, as i hate leaving my son. People constantly bug me about it, and tell me that i am *too* possessive with him, and i should go out for the night. I really don't want to though, because if my son wakes up *in the night* and i am not there i fear he will be unsettled and upset without me there to comfort him. I prefer to stay in and just be there for him, i feel much more comfortable. Now me and my partner have split up after 3 years ( we broke up on Friday) i obviously have to let him have my son a few days this week (because on Sunday he will be gone off to start his training in the army for 26 weeks) now - its not that i mind him having him, but there has been a lot in the past where i feel he has completely neglected our son, and went through a strange where he was on drugs etc. So i feel very uneasy him being away from me, because my son doesn't feel comforted by his daddy, due to his daddy not making the effort. I've now had a comment from his mother, saying - i need to see a psychiatrist, because i am far to paranoid. Am i being far to paranoid and possestive? Or as my mum puts it " i am just being a normal mum " ? My son is nearly 15 month old. Hes still a baby really. I have completely forbidden over night stays with my ex partner and my son, i know FULL well, my son would not settle with him, and would be very uneasy and shaken, i could not and would not EVER put my son through that. I am just going by my instincts and i am doing what i think is right by my son, i just want him to be happy and comfortable. But because of the NO over-night access, i've been threaterned court, by him and his mum. Sorry about the grammer guys!

    how is this possible if the baby's primary source of nutrition should be breastmilk at that age? My daughter is 5 months old and I don't think she is going to self-wean that early, but is it possible? *I mean wean from breastfeeding
