So there goes my appointment. He'll get a migraine & wont be able to drive me & also wont be in any kind of state to stay home & look after ds if I catch the bus there by myself. There is no-one else who can help. My parents are overseas on holiday & everyone else works full time. Oh yay. So fingers crossed something miraculous happens & he doesn't get a migraine!

    Edit: oh yay its a migraine. And its a pilot program that ends in February so we cant reschedule. So I guess thats it then. Obviously im just not meant to get help.
    Ring them. Sometimes they can come get you. Especially if they need people or you started a political program

    I rang them, they can't come & get me.

    Im in Qld, ds legally doesnt have to be in a child restraint in a taxi here. No way known to man am I holding my 6 month old on my lap for a 30 minute cab ride! And if by some miracle I get a cab with a child seat to get there, no guarantee ill get one with a child seat to come home - so then im stuck there with a baby who wont sleep out (who will definitely be overtired by then) for god knows how long until dh or someone with a child seat can come & get us. Not worth the stress.

    Can you?? I got told you just had to wait for one with a car seat to be free, however long that took.

    You might have a little wait but surely waiting at the other end would be better than missing your appointment entirely.

    See if you can book one - at least for the trip there.
    If you can't be sure how long you'll be ask the driver if they can come back and get you. Some do here. I've had several do that both here and in the city. Or they've given me their mobile number to call them directly. And not in a dodgy sleazy way!

    I dont know how to manage the wait though. Ds can only stay awake for 90 minutes. The appointment goes for 90 minutes. Its a half hour drive each way on top of that. Ds does not sleep out of the house, unless he's completely exhausted & that involves hysterical screaming until he vomits first. How am I meant to manage that in the middle of the street waiting, or in the back of a cab?

    He may well scream but you need to get some help Hun.

    Please take him with you and go. He might just have to scream. I know it makes you anxious when he screams and I get it, but you need to go to this appointment.

    Can you get a private car company? Sometimes they have car seats and they are a comparable price.
