Re: Side return extension - is it worth the hassle?

Hello I know I'm posting on an old post, but we're about to kick off plans for a side return extension and need to consider whether to also extend back into the garden, so I thought this was a good place to post. I wondered if people who've had side returns done would mind saying what size it has ma...

Good hotel in Macclesfield

Long shot I know (especially on an evening when more important things are on a lot of Mum's minds - really feel for you) - but would really appreciate any recommendations for a hotel in Macclesfield, Cheshire.

Re: Can anyone recommend nurseries in Balham?

My daughter's at babyroom and loves it - she's been going since just before she was 1. I've recommended it before, so if you do a search under 'babyroom' you should find what I've said. In short, we think they're great - very loving, caring staff and a good range of activities. We've really got to k...

Re: Can anybody recommend a pregnancy personal trainer?

Depends what you're looking for, but may be worth speaking to a lovely lady called Susan, who coincidentally has recently been recommended by another user in the 'how to get rid of mummy tummy post': She is a former professional dancer who has ...

Re: Babyroom on Webbs Road?

As a VERY happy Babyroom parent (though admittedly the one in Balham, not Webbs Road) I wanted to add my support to Babyroom (they have some 'floating' staff who move around the nurseries, including a wonderful manager who keeps an eye on all the nurseries, so I feel able to make comments that will ...

What are the best stair gates?

Can anyone please recommend good stairgates? They are for a Victorian property, but I don't mind attaching them to the wall if that's necessary.

Re: Placenta Praevia

I had it too and mine also had moved out of the way by the 36 scan, so I had a normal vaginal delivery. My consultant and various midwives told me 90% move out of the way by the time you're full term, as your bump grows and pulls the placenta upwards.

Re: Private School deposits

As others have said, your position will depend on what any contract you signed said / what any terms and conditions you were given before you paid the deposit said. Check what you were given and what you signed. Whatever the docs say, if they have filled the space / have a full class, then they won'...

Re: Highchairs

It really depends how much space you've got and how much money you want to spend. Tripp Trapps are great, but expensive. Ikea do some good cheap options. I wanted one that fitted on one of our existing chairs so that it didn't take up any additional space in our kitchen and found this one which we t...

How do you clean the inside of a rubber duck?

I know this is totally random, but has anyone successfully cleaned the inside of a rubber duck? My daughter loves the ducks in her bath, but the inside of them seem to be growing some sort of algae - which is totally gross. They're lovely decorated ones from Cancer Research which they no longer sell...

Re: Down syndrome ?

I am no expert, but know a child who has downs syndrome. I would have thought it would be unusual for a child to get to 1 without a doctor or health visitor picking it up. Assuming the baby was born in a hospital he will have been seen by a paediatrician before being discharged. I think they look fo...
