I don't care how you feed/fed your babies, I do care (passionately) about inappropriate/incorrect advice on breastfeeding.


Ok agreed but I wasn't trying to give any advice, when I said no issue I meant that mothers shouldn't feel guilty if they have to do bottle, but in the context of that advice being given by a medical professional. Fully agree that I've no place to be giving anyone any advice on breastfeeding as a an unqualified male :)

Now in other Nay news, just had a text from one our friends locally saying my wife turned up on her door 10 minutes ago in pieces :( So maybe my thinking she is coping is a little of the mark :(

I'm sorry to hear she's struggling right now. It's good that she has friends that she can go to when she's feeling overwhelmed. :luv:

So glad to see you've all found something that works for your babies and for you all as families, and hopefully the news that your little ones are feeding well and keeping healthy will continue.

Asfish, that sounds worrying and I hope that your wife and you are both ok. It's really great that she was able to get herself to a friend or neighbour for help, because that can be a massive part of the struggle. I hope you all are able to get the support you need.

Love to all the babies. If only it were possible to reach through the Internet and squidge the babies gently. :luv: :luv: :luv:

She is better now, and also has some support plans using health visitor, Home Start, and also some baby groups and friends

Her Dad isn't well either, in addition to that stress it meant that they couldn't come and stay for a week later this month when I have to be in Denmark doing all the IT for a new office.

So I have got my parents to come down now.

Finally for a change my older son was in the Deputy heads office for something else other than a telling off today, he was given a good behavior sticker that only she hands out :)

So day is a lot better now, I will be working at home tomorrow to help her out as well.

Good start with children and technology this morning

Eldest sone threw the harmony remote on the floor in temper, whilst is still works the back panel was cracked and doesn't quite fit as well as it did.

Then my little boy of 5 months was getting excited by the flashing keys on my Corsair keyboard, so I sat him on my knee and he pressed a few. It just stopped working! Not only are there no lights it won't even function as a dumb keyboard, find it hard to believe that a 4-month-old baby could break a keyboard designed for a gaming but still a pain.

Hope things continue to improve for you, asfish. (Although I remember developing a habit for breaking technology when I was very young, and at 41 I've yet to grow out of it, so best to load up on accidental damage insurance.)

Meanwhile we got sent back to hospital yet again on Friday (the midwife wasn't going to send us back until I pointed out how high her weight had been on Tuesday morning when they discharged us, and so how much it had dropped by Wednesda - she hadn't seen that weight in the records because I had taken the red book to register the birth on Wednesday and she completely ignored my wife actually telling her the Tuesday weight - I should have kept my mouth shut). All tests were fine and I talked the doctor out of keeping us overnight again, with a promise that we'd try to increase Violet's milk intake, which I think we've been doing ok, but despite the midwife saying we must call them on Saturday to get someone to come and weigh her again, no one returned our calls until this morning, when they said they might come today if they're not too busy, as they're understaffed. (Desire to punch Jeremy Cunt and any brexiteers in the face grows stronger by the minute.)

And yesterday, we received this:

I'd love to know what it is on her records that indicates she's a visitor to the UK. Still, it's great that Jeremy Cunt is ensuring that life for new parents is that little bit more stressful than it would be otherwise.

For the Keyboard, I've removed and reinstalled the software, redone firmware and tried it on 2 other computers

It's odd as it lights up at boot then by the time we are into Windows nothing including basic keyboard functions

If I launch the app that controls it then keys light up for a while but won't stay like that.

Also if you leave it connected to any PC for more than 10 minutes it starts to cause issues with the mouse and the windows freeze as well

Will try it on with Amazon first but its 9 months old so guess I will be fobbed off to Corsair, there is supposed to be some process they can do with you that resets it.

That's pretty shit, I mean even if your wife wasn't from the UK, your child was born here so the letter is just a rather offensive mistake under the circumstances?

As for feeding keep at it, you will all be fine, this is just a bump in the road before you know she will be breaking all you gadgets :)

Unlike the US, there's no right to UK citizenship or residency as a result of being born here.

Really?

My wife is from Dublin which in terms of citizenship\residency is a bit different from the rest of the EU.

No issue with a UK passport for my kids, only small thing is that their passports are linked to mine as I have a UK one and that's the only one that I can add to the application

So my wife needs children's birth certs with her is she ever takes them out of the UK, she is down as their mother so birth cert is accepted

The only exception to this is ironically Ireland.

The 'you must register with the police' signs will soon be prominent around the campus to enrage me, too-for 'tier 4' visitors, that is, but still. Nice and Russian.

And dear NHS, the code is 020.

Called Amazon and no issue refund! Was wondering as I bought it in November 2016 and the order details didn't have a return link.

Only issue is that this model is end of life so I will get money back and have to find another one

Yeah, that's what I meant. Odd.

Has the actual problem been sorted out?

Oh aye, basically "it was an error; ignore it". I'd still like to know what the criteria were for sending it in the first place.

I can't imagine how insulted and pissed off you feel over this, especially with the stress of the weight issues you had as well.

I would like to think that is down to overworked staff and a heavy reliance on paper work in the NHS, my wife had a lot of scans in the 3 weeks before our 2nd was born and each time a new Dr would read some spidery hand writing in her notes and we would have to correct them over small points. The first time a computer came into play was when they printed an arm band for him, they fired up a windows 7 computer then spent 5 minutes finding someone who could log in! Then they were asking me questions like what time he was born?!

You did a great thing pulling them on it and getting the press involved as hopefully they will ensure they improve their process and the next set of parents won't get this shitty treatment. :)

Glad it's been sorted now, Nik. But bloody hell, shouldn't have ever happened in the first place.

Yes, the lack of electronic records is the NHS is very disappointing. I was doing data entry (effectively digitising paper records) on a work experience placement in 1998, and it seemed (from my very narrow glimpse into that world) that things were moving in the right direction, so it's a bit shit that nearly 20 years on, things are still so disjointed.

Having moved on and forgiven the London North West trust's mistake (although it would be great to find out how it happened, but that seems unlikely to happen), I now have the means to recreate that feeling of being insulted and pissed off, not to mention despairing of people, simply by reading the comments on the Independent article!
