deepy dippy


We are desperately trying to finish all our paperwork so that we can have ten days of chilling out - the unfinished kitchen and the job on the 30th December not withstanding.

Leo is teething.

Can you say "mummy's turning in to a dipsomaniac", children?

  1. One advantage of bottle feeding, darling. You can't drink much with a colicky baby if you breastfeed.

  3. I second that, although I feel a bit of a fraud with a cup of tea in front of me (still, I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy). By the way, I've tagged you for a rather unusual meme - check out the "songs of sadness" post on my blog and see if you fancy it. Have a cool Yule!

  5. "Dipsomaniac" is far too complicated a word for children. "Mummy's turning into a drunk" is far easier for them".
    Whatever, I'm sure it's not the case at all. Don't feel bad about having a glass or two to help you relax.

    Teething - teething rings & the like, hard biscuits ("Bicciepegs"?) and, above all else, Bonjela teething gel, especially before he settles down. Or before you'd like him to settle down ;)

  7. I wish I could remember the name of the baby teething powders I used to buy - an absolute little miracle because they cut right through all the mucousy dribbly teething snotty stuff and stopped the pain in little tummies, as well as soothing the gums.*

    Anbesol is a godsend too - that stuff is strong enough to dab it once onto your own little fingertip, run it twice round a droolly baby mouth and still be able to numb the end of your own tongue. One dab.

    I always found Bonjela to want to slide off and sit in the wrong place - ie completely useless.


    *I googled! Ashton & Parsons Infants' Powders. Herbal and IMHO miraculous.
