My daughter started nursery 2 weeks before her 3rd birthday having not been to any other nursery before as there were only spaces from sept, even though she was 2.5 in April. I found that the summer term before she needed much more stimulation than before, so make sure you do lots of activities. We ...

Re: Paediatric Orthopaedics

I can highly recommend Neel Mohan who is a paediatric orthopaedic consultant. We saw him at Parkside hospital, but I believe he works out of st George's too. We saw him because my daughter walked strangely and he was v good and reassuring.

Re: Where to buy upholstery fabric locally?

I bought some new fabric for my sofa which I had recovered a year or so ago from Ian Mankin on the Wandsworth Bridge Road.

Re: Do 'no junk mail' signs work?

We have one - a basic one I think I got it from Wandsworth Library.

It makes a big difference, and actually I still get all the glossy magazines too. So for me definitely worth it.

Someone suggested to us to buy the biggest one you can as once you've got one, they are very easy to fill up and ours is always full when in use... But that could be me not being a light packer! :) they have good secure locks and easy t...

Re: 3 year old bed wetting

As you said she is not keen on wearing a nappy at night, you could try lifting her onto the loo just as you go to bed. We have done this with our 2 girls and do in the dark without too much disturbance. It seemed to work for us. Also, after a couple of months of doing it, we risked a night or two of...
