we are using a travel cot from argos it was ??26.99 and is perfect, he actually loves sleeping in it (thats another story!!) but he has just learnt how to sit up by himself and it is a safe place to put him to have a play with his toys whilst i get on with a few jobs,

Grace is 8 1/2 months and we had this one delivered on Monday:-
She is perfectly happy in there and there is enough space for her to crawl, plus she likes practising standing using the bars
I feel happier that she is safer in there whilst I pop to the loo, make lunch or iron.

We have one, we got it at the baby show and I don't know what make it is but it's basically a square mat with inflatable tubes attached to the sides to give it walls. You can add as many as you want to make the walls as high as you want, we also have four tubes going from the corners up into a pyramid and they have little tags on them to hang toys off. We got it mainly to get her 'safe' from dd1, she knows that she can't wear shoes in there and only baby toys are allowed in there and none of hers, so no chocking hazards are in reach of lo. She has so many toys in there now though when I put her in it looks like she's lying in a big toy box!

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!
