hi there, i'm just nosing from toddler so thought i'd reply!!!
my son is now 3 but I went with Britannica when he was a baby and I chose this one as it was recommended on the Martin Lewis' website www.moneysavingexpert.com. if you go to his site and search for child trust funds he'll give you the low down on the best one to go with at the time. he's also got lots of good advice about them too
good luck its a mine field!!! x

We went with Family Investments as they did an ethical fund and that felt important.

we have one with the yorkshire building society, as we just wanted a normal savings as we add to it every month, i would pop onto a compare website to check the interest if you just want a normal account x

My DD Is with Nationwide I've banked with them for 25yrs so it felt natural to stick with them as i just wanted a standard savings account i didnt want to mess about with them selling share on her behalf. We put money in when possible and then yearly she has her interest paid to her and also get a bonus depending on how much we've added too it.

I havent done it yet but we are going to open a savings account with the yorkshire building society, mostly cos its the only place locally that I can open a ctf savings account xx

Thanks ladies. Think Nationwide for ease as that's who we're with too. Brilliant, will add it to my 'to do' list.... :roll:

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
