    op, I also have a 1 & 3 yo & sometimes I feel like my kids want me constantly, it can be so difficult to have a conversation. How do they do if you were to sit down & play with them? Sometimes at playgroup, I have to fight my every urge to want to sit down with the other mums & have a coffee & chat, & I sit with my kids & play with them for 15 mins, doing tea parties or something like that. When I do, they get settled into the environment, and settled on an activity, and they will then be much happier for me to leave them. Other then that, I use food to shush them while I talk, lol. Could you possibly put DD in for a 2nd day at childcare? If she really enjoys it, she may just really benefit from the extra stimulation. That must be really difficult with no help, do you have someone/ partner who can come over when your kids are in bed & you can go out kid-free for a coffee with a friend or something? Sometimes just getting out without my kids really helps me to maintain my sense of 'I am a person too' & it can be really refreshing. It is such a tough stage of life, I hope things get easier for you as time goes along.

    Sorry what I meant was, what are they eating? I would stronging suggest looking at what E numbers they are eating, colours, flavours, preservatives etc before you just accept that your children are high spirited. Be aware that just because something is branded as 'natural' or 'no artificial preservative etc' doesnt mean that it will not cause reactions in some children. Also some fruit will trigger reactions, my boys are highly reactive to non organic grapes and saltanas for example.
