In the rain I get my three eldest all dressed in rain gear, and go for a hunt around the woods with baby in the pushchair happily watching the rain drops on his rain cover!!!
We have lots of fun rain or shine and it makes the no end of washing worth while to see the four of them happily excausted and fast asleep at bed time.

we also put on our wellys and rain coats and head to the woods for an adventure walk! we either put lizzie in her coat and rain hat in the back carrier (easiet way but she gets a little wet on her face) or put her in pushcahir but that limits whjere we can walk.
other than that we go to a place called moors valley cpountry park which has big wooden play equipment in the woods and we go there in our wellys and coats with a picnic!

I still have to go out to walk the dog, so I put LO in the buggy with the raincover and traipse out round the park as usual. All our other activities are indoors so they go on as normal but dont go for any extra walks like I may do in the sunshine.

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!
