Whats the best bit for you when it comes to being a mum?
My best bit is watching my babys face light up when i come into the room and seeing my toddler breath so peacefully when she is sleeping.

Big huge smiles first thing in the morning, and now he's started laughing at things I do like singing to him and making noises.
And I agree, when he's sleeping he just looks so perfect and amazing, I wonder how we managed to make something that beautiful.

It may sound soppy, but I don't think I can pick a best bit. The smiles first thing are fabulous, but, for me, it just keeps getting better. Every day she does something else that makes me step back in wonder at how she grows & changes, and as chubs113 says, how we managed to make something so beautiful & amazing! Being a mummy is THE best thing ever!xx

So many things... at the moment it is watching the way lo copies his daddy... especially when he tries to blow raspberries (unsuccessfully at the moment). We laugh so much at him and he gives us a look as if to say 'what are you laughing at?'

It changes with each new stage for me.....today's has to be the way she raises her arms for me to pick her up with a "Mer" noise at the same time, just too cute!
I love the smiles & happy chatty noises in a morning (even when it's 6am and I'm willing her to go back to sleep :lol
LOVE being a Mummy, I believe it's what I was meant to do x

Watching her achieve something she is so desperate to do. Emilia has been desperate for the last few days to sit up on her own, and today she finally managed it!!! She has such a determined spirit. That and her funny laugh!

When he's asleep just looks so beautiful and when he see's me come into his room in the mornings, his delight on his face is a picture.

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!
