i'm similar, i think i need a bit of colour. although i would recommend Olay (i'm assuming it is ok to use?) as I found Johnsons was a bit streaky/uneven etc. I really liked the Olay one.
just my opinion though!

Hi, I used johnsons holiday sun during my last pregnancy to give myself a bit of a colour boost, but i came out in a mad rash and i iched all over for the rest ov my pregnancy. It was really weird coz id used it loads of times before i was preg but they say ur skin becomes more sensitive, so just be careful and watch out for any nasty rashes. On the bright side tho after i had the baby i was fyn to use it agen, very strange. Kerry xx

All fake tans are fine to use according to my pregnancy book - its only sunbeds and long periods of time in the sun to be avoided. I have the Johnson's one - but I thought I bought the new odur free one but dont think I have because it smells of fake tan...once its used I think i will buy the Olay one..its nice to have some colour - someone said I was looking even paler than usual now I am pregnant - but it was a stupid man!

Its beacuse your skin is way more sesitive and burns easier and you shouldnt get too hot when preggers anyway as baby is not liking boil in the bag. Thats what my midwife said anyway. Assume shes right?

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 😳😩
