    My mum lives 300km away, but Matt's family have been in this area since it was first settled by Europeans! They are very good, and have been a great help.
    One is okay on their own but I'd be scooting back to Queensland before number two comes along!

    @Heids89 how are you going? I hope miss p is settling in for you. How is mr s going?

    I saw you did a review on the jelly pop pram and car seat liners last year? Do you think they are worth the 80 bucks. Ds is getting awful eczema at the mo brought on by the heat and im wondering if this would help when we are out and about as he tends to get really hot in the pram.

    @Heids89 - I love her name. Just beautiful. Hope all is going well and you aren't toooo tired.

    In regards to family, I am eternally grateful that my mum is only a couple minutes away from me. I would have lost my sanity a long time ago if I didn't have her to call on when times get tough. DH and I are pretty good at tag teaming if DD is proving particularly difficult but some nights he is away for tennis. Some days he has to study while I work. So Mum will often look after DD for us. She also loves helping my cooking and cleaning (especially in the early days when DH and I were zombies from lack of sleep).

    DS has taken the change very well. He is a little enthusiastic with his patting of her sometimes haha but otherwise has treated her arrival as a non - event. I think its helped that he has lots of one on one time with both grandmas. And putting him in daycare 1 day a week was the best idea ever lol.

    We aren't too sleep deprived luckily. She gets windy and unsettled after some feeds because she seems to be a power feeder (only a few minutes at most per b00b) and takes in alot of air. But we're getting anywhere from 2.5-5 hours between feeds at night so its not too bad.

    For $80 I don't think they're worth it. It would go warm really quickly. I think I ended up giving mine away.

    @MrsTugs - I would genuinely love to pay someone to go through the piles of crap in the spare room and under our bed for us. I just can't find a service that does it for you - most ones have you helping. Pfft. If I wanted to help, I'd do it myself. Idiots.
