    HI Girls, my neighbours just been in shes due her 3rd girl in September and gave me a really good tip - when midwife dresses baby and once u have your head together, and legs !! then basically put Vaseline all around babies bum, basically the first poo ( meconium) is like thick treacle and impossible to clean but if you you have vaseline on bum it wipes off quickly. do this everytime u change baby for first few days.

    Oooh, I have another one for ladies who are going to breastfeed.

    Steralize some ice cub trays and fill them with breast milk. Pop them in the freezer in a steralized bag and then when baby is taking both breast and bottle, you can just pop 3 - 4 cubes in a bottle and serve at room temperature once they have melted. This is easier than storing milk in bags.

    Breast milk can be stored for 6 months in the freezer and will keep at room temperature for about 6 hours. xx

    A flat bag run under the hot tap defrosts a LOT quicker than ice cubes - literally one minute. Also takes up less space than ice cube trays and no spillage.


    On my iPhone - so cant see tickers :(
