Welcome to Channel Mum Support Groups. A place to be with other mums where you can feel safe to have a little more open ‘mum’ conversation.
7 weeks is still really young, the only thing I can recommend is that you keep all lights low/off at night, even when she wakes at night, keep the lighting as low as possible. Calm and quiet is the way to go.
Does she have a bath in the evening at all? We used to bath our daughter at 5pm to signal the start of wind down time and getting ready for bed.
You can also do some baby massage, that’s a great way to relax your baby. Channel Mum recently did a video on Baby massage that you might enjoy.
Have you tried white noise? That may help her settle at night?
Make sure at bedtime she is in a quiet environment, no tv or phones as that blue light they emit will stop any production of the sleep hormone.
Babies dont actually produce melatonin until 4 months, which is why newborns sleeping patterns are all over the place, but it’s good to get started with some helpful behaviours that create a loose routine now.
In the daytime, make sure she naps in a light room, go about your usual activities, don’t try to be quiet for the baby.
She will soon learn the difference, it just takes time. Sounds like you’re doing a fab job though xx
Have you taken a test at all?
You could have had what’s called an implantation bleed. The only way to know if to test.
There are other options and most wouldn’t gain weight early on but I would test to find out either way. X
Hello, I'm 19 weeks and my baby has not cooperated on my sono appts haha.. I've been told boy then I've been told girl but is an unsure answer. Can yall guess? This pic I was 13 weeks
We have found ourselves in a little money situation.
I have always been pretty good in regards to budgeting and doing free stuff however we have recently found we are down £170 A month and to us that is ALOT of money. It scares me a little as I have not much money to my name now and unable to save. My partner works full time and I have two jobs both part time.
I do picnics with my little one and our friends, but I will admit I'm a sucker for spending on clothes (mainly for my son)
I do tend to shop pre loved.
Hit me with your fav budgeting ideas for a family who love the outdoors and what you do to keep your outgoings to a minimum.
*I should add we have cancelled subscriptions, we have 4 months left on sky and we plan to shop around or get a now tv box. Phone contracts are half way through with zero nudging. I have already asked the company*
