Ah bless ya hearts, my OH got made redundant back in October, he is a mechanic and since then he has only been able to get temping work with an agency, so money has been really tight.

Hi Gill,I used to work in a local hotel but decided not to return once my mat leave ended due to the hours and weekends they wanted me to work!
Just recently found out about 6 staff have been made redundant,i know alot of them are very upset.Cant help thinking i made the right choice not to go back,as i now work part time,which suits better and who is to say my job would of been safe?!
All i can say is maybe go to CAB and/or find out all what your entitled too.
Good luck x

OH just rang he is putting in a transfer to a different department so fingers crossed he will get it , its a long shot though as everyone else has the same idea!
I was wondering though, my mat leave doesnt end until May now if i get made redundant in March what happens with my mat money?
Oh and Sam the department is closing and they are making 26 redundancys which is more than the department so we are assuming its definate

Sorry to hear that. My OH was made redundant a couple of weeks ago, but it must be hard with both of you going. I'm not sure that they can make you redundant whilst on maternity leave - I think they have to wait until you are due back. Unless you take voluntary redundancy. It might be worth checking out. Also legally they have to pay you for your notice period plus holiday (which you should still accrue whilst on maternity leave). They also have to pay 1 weeks redundancy pay for ever year of service which is tax free.
Hope your OH gets tranfered - again legally the company have to be able to prove there are no alternative jobs within the company before dismissing anyone - otherwise you could sue for unfair dismissal.
All the best Steph

Thanks Katie, i hope it does continue, better than nothing.
Just worked out online what oh and me are entitled to and because we both started under 21 i get 2 weeks and oh gets 6 dont mean to sound ungrateful but its a bit crap!

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!
