I am getting my boys Christened in a few weeks, but I don't know what to get the God Parents as a gift.
For those who have had their little ones Christened, What did you get the God Parents?

Both of my godmothers have a charm bracelet so we got them a disc charm with Godmother on 1 side and the date of the christening on the other. We got tge godfather a silver frame engraved and got him a picture from the day developed (he's the partner of one if the godmothers so works well)
I had a nightmare finding an outfit as didn't want anything too traditional. In end I found a cute outfit in m&p's- light grey pants, a White linen shirt and White and grey tank top. Teamed it with White converse too x

Not got the outfits yet - the godmothers want to buy them. I've had a look online, but everything seems quite girly! Any ideas would be great!
NieneAndSquib - the outfit you're describing sounds like the outfits my 2 wore to their cousins Christening just before xmas.

surely being a god parent is gift enough, i have never heard of godparents getting gifts before?

We gave one godparent (male) a small silver frame with 2 photo's in of the day, and the other (a couple) we gave a Willow Tree figurine
Lo wore my sister's christening gown

My son is getting christened in Feb and I didn't know we were meant to buy gifts. Now I don't know what to buy them too. We have ordered our sons outfit from cachet. This is the link. Its not too thrilly and girly like others I have seen and at a reasonable price!! I also have ordered shoes and socks from there too. My grandma is knitting him a cardy as all the little jackets aren't that nice but its personal choice
Here is the link

I'm with piggypops on being a godparent is a gift enough. I have 2 godsons and one goddaughter and I've never expected a gift or received one at the christenings.
Both godsons are my 2 cousins boys and until I had my son, my cousins both used to buy me a token christmas present from the kids (box of chocs usually) but now they buy for my kids and thats it and I don't mind.
My littlest godchild is my friends daughter who is 2 1/2 and this year I got a godmother gift for christmas (a book) and a professional photo of my goddaughter. I certainly wasn't expecting anything although I do love the picture and its gone up on my fridge
Maybe for anyone who wants to buy godparents gifts you could think about getting a photo done

I didn't buy gifts for my ds godparents and we are godparents to their child and didn't get a present either.
I think the focus should be on the children!! My ds godparents bought him a steiff bear and wrote a lovely verse in a keepsake card and I bought my god daughter a handmade wooden personalised keepsake box and wrote in a card for her to keep
I agree that being asked to be godparent is a good enough present!!
the only thing the godparent got on both occassions were a card given to them by the church with name of child and date of christenign and their duties as a god parent

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!
