I thought the point of washing new or second hand clothes was to remove manufacterers chemicals and previous germs? maybe wash and put them in a bag or some such to keep them clean?

dnt forget To use Non-Bio powder/liquid for babies things ;\)

Oooh I was gonna ask about that actually because I just bought some persil non-bio today so that will be fine wont it?
Also, is it best to use a liquid or not? I normally do with our clothes but didn't know whether you should with babies and if you do do you get a non-bio one?

dont think it matters hun! liquid or powder, Just personal preference Just aslong as its Non-Bio,
Fabric softener is liquid form so Doesn't matter, although with the Fairy Non-Bio tablets the fabric softener is built in so no need for seperate Fabric softener (if you chose to use softener) ;\)

If you do use fabric softner, make sure you use a gentle one, suitable for babies (I am using comfort pure) as the normal ones have chemicals in that can irritate sensitive skin.

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!
