lol yeah really give em summat to talk about. i get it all the time too im 21 and just had my 3rd 11 weeks ago. when ever i go anywhere people always come over to have a look at lo. when they see my other 2 as well its always, god are they all yours!! you dont look old enough.
i once told one lady when she said this "dont i, suppose thats a good thing then because you look old enough to have at least 8" the look on her face really made my day lol

Some people just really dont think before they speak do they! Its so rude and totally none of their business! Im 20 and due my first in 4 weeks. Been quite lucky not to have anyone say anything but thats probably because i give them the look of death before they do lol But people cant help themseleves but to stare at my bump and thats annoying enough for me!

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
