    I found out my cousin is 13 weeks pregnant and I wanted to get her a gift to say congratulations! Any recommendations? I was thinking about some nice beauty products so she can pamper herself, or a maternity massage... do you think it would be good? Thanks

    It can be reworn, AND used as a table cloth, saves on clothes. :yep:

    A little wedding advice guys, I'm making little activity packs for children who are attending all day, (there are 7, including Bella and Milly) aged 1-6 for my wedding at the moment I've got:

    Tiaras for the girls
    Inflatable guitars
    Trucks for the boys/activity rattle for 1 year old
    Stretchy stick men
    Alien mask
    Smiley face stickers
    An under the sea plastic toy

    I was thinking of perhaps printing off a few colouring pages, like for the interest of each child and having some crayons and maybe a small book each, but other than that, do you think that is enough?

    Also, do you think I should have something for the children who didn't come to the day? Like a few more inflatable guitars or glow sticks or something? I just want the parents to enjoy themselves and not worry because their children are bored, plus I obviously want them quiet for the speeches

    Hope everyone is well xxx
    That's so clever! It sounds wonderful. Colouring would be fun ^_^
    Just mind that you don't completely split the kids up from the event - I know I hated being put in children's corners, and children's tables, etc. etc. for as long as I can remember. Like 'oh, thanks for the respect...'. Also, girls like trucks too =P

    We had something like this:

    http://www.chicco.co.uk/OurProducts/...0/Default.aspx

    And you can move it round into different positions and then as a toy attached to the cot. At work we get lots of different materials and put them over the babies legs and let them kick them off, or you could just kind of hold them a bit over his legs and let him kick them! Or you could go swimming, lots of leg kicking there.

    How is little Henry? It is exhausting but it gets easier, I promise!

    I think this is such a lovely idea!! Some people totally forget about children. I would have thought that would be enough. I agree with Zen but i kinda feel because of their ages aslong as they are involved a little bit and entertained they will be happy enough. I would just say maybe the same or selection of colouring books/pages just incase one of them wants one another has.

    Thank you for the replies!

    The children will be sat with their parents and Bella and Milly will be with DP's Mum and Dad so I hope they feel involved, the activity boxes match the colour scheme and have their names on so it's not like it's something we did last minute, hopefully that counts!

    Oh, good thinking Alexa about the colouring idea, yes I think they shall all have the same now! Something universal like animals or autumn as it's September.

    I always worry hosting things as I always want the children to be entertained, I was pushing Gareth to hire this fantastic entertainer that we know (for the reception) but then I'm not sure they'll be enough children to warrant it. He is just fantastic and he was at a christening we went to recently and he just made the day, got everyone involved, I think I shall pester for him again

    Anyway, I will quit with the wedding talk now on this post, just thought it would be a good sounding board for those who are child-oriented to reply!

    Thanks guys.

    We really wanted our babas close together so this is great news for us.

    I feel.... no different really. I have no symptoms and my Fertility Friend chart is nothing to write home about. I guess it hasn't sunk in and probably won't until the first scan or morning sickness, whichever happens first.

    One thing I'm excited about is ENJOYING the pregnancy without fearing labour. Because now I know labour is a breeze. I spent the whole of my first pregnancy petrified of labour.

    Does anyone know much about tandem feeding? I'm still breastfeeding.

    Whoo congrats Tufts!

    I think babies close together may be nice. But that's because I really don't like babies and want them to grow up asap =P

    haha. Newborns suck but it's just a temporary phase thank God.

    Tufts: I'm not really sure to be honest about Tandem feeding, only because I know the milk would change for the new baby? This website looks helpful: http://www.the-essence-of-breastfeed...stfeeding.html . I found breastfeeding the youngest was a lovely bonding time just for me and her, I don't think I would have liked my loud toddler demanding it too. Although that is just me! How long are you planning on feeding Amy?


    Zenobia: Yes but you'd love your own babies, lots! I'd never even held a newborn before Bella!

    BP: I'm sure I'd love them to bits. I just don't know what to do with them. My baby cousin is scared as hell just looking at me. He does a very cute hiding-his-face-in-his-dad's-sweater-thing. Like dogs - they can just smell my fear. I once tried to explain my 3 year old cousin how gravity works. He didn't get it, and neither of us felt like playing that much any more... So although I'll most probably like my own children (lets' hope so right?) I don't like the general baby-phase that comes with them. Unless I adopt a 5 year old...

    I got pregnant with Jason when Alex was 16 months, and I was still breastfeeding him, but by the time he was 19 months, he more or less self-weaned. I don't think he liked the new taste of my milk thanks to my pregnancy hormones.
