Hi to everyone else!
Regarding the baby massages and mums groups - All i had to do was ring up the local CYH office and put my name down for a mums group - well that was cutting a long story short anyway. Modbury and Salisbury aren't running them at moment so i finally got into one at enfield (digby you may have the same problem). Charlie was 8 weeks old then and they told me they didn't start them til they were 12 weeks old. then a few days later i got a call telling me i got into a group and when i went all the bubbies were the same age! go figure! . So you meet at the CYH office with your mums group and a CYH nurse for 5 weeks and over that 5 weeks the nurse takes you through a variety of things with 'getting to know your baby'. One of those things is baby massage, so she taught us how to massage baby properly (well i guess there's no right and wrong way anyway). unfortunately i couldn't learn it as i had charlie asleep in my arms at the time so i just watched. however, i got a brief idea and have massaged charlie just a nice simple way. he gets a massage after his bath every night. So, yeah, that's all you will need to do. It's all free. and of course our mums group still meets weekly and they're fabulous!
I do have the blue book. it's about the size of A5 but it is quite thick so can make the nappy bag a bit heavier with everything else in it so i tend not to take it with me everywhere, only to specific appts for charlie.
So i know when AF comes too! i get into a real cleaning frenzy, get that much more narkier, get in the mood for 'breaking the drought' (go figure!) and i feel like cooking/baking - which on a normal day i can't be bothered with!
Anyway, hope you all have a nice day and are having a nice weekend!
