Re: I am not

It does sometimes feel overwhelming being a mum with 3 children. It's taken me about 18 months to feel back on top of things in the same way I did before I got pregnant with DS3, so it is partly a season. But also, at some point you just have to take some time back. It also sounds a bit like you go ...

Re: Overlocker encouragement needed

Overlockers scare me after some terrible experiences in year 8 sewing class. But, I've recently discovered my sewing teacher was wrong and actually I can make stuff with a sewing machine, so I don't think they must be all that bad, I think it was just her. So I think go for it - use some older thing...

Re: DS diagnosed with congenital heart disease

Sorry to hear this pseudo xx

It sounds like you've had a crappy year, hoping the support forums are a better source of positive information than google (which is always, always terrible)

Re: Dear dickhead

It sounds like your FIL is a douche. Sending hugs your way, and hopes that he will decide (albeit unlikely) to not be a douche. Hopefully the rest of your support crew are more supportive than he is xx

Re: fabric for dress trial

I've been using old bedsheets for a lot of my trial stuff lately. Although for most of the things I make I need it to be at least semi-useable as I struggle to make something and then not use it.

Ooh, if no-one else wants it, can I have it? I'm done with the baby making stuff, but would be interested to read it, and my younger sister may find it helpful in the next little bit ;)

Re: Breastfeeding after feeding tube

I've been trying to think of anyone who might fit this. The only one I can think of might be parla, but I'm not really sure. I know from the reading I did a while ago of bf management that a feeding tube is considered better than a bottle for bf outcomes, but I don't know much about it in practice. ...
