We take our 5month old to swimming lessons which is just a baby play and water familiarisation sort of thing,
We go to 2 different places on different days, the first place allows photos but you have to fill out a form and get a special little 'approved photographer' lanyard and you can only really take photos of your child
The second place are much more lenient, we asked about photos etc and they said they consider it a public place so you are allowed to take photos however the last couple of weeks there has been a lady with her bub and another lady I assume is her mother who has been videoing them, she sits on the seats so when she would be getting video of most of the babies as we all move around the pool and it bothers me a little that my son and I are on their videos and they haven't really asked if it's ok, should I say something to the pool staff or just leave it and try to stay away from them?
Dh is a chef and works split shifts so isn't home very often, ds is 11 weeks and he doesn't settle with him at all, poor dh gets upset and he doesn't like to hear him cry so he just passes him back to me
Does anyone have any advice on what I can do to encourage dh and ds to bond?
I just call ds's thing his doodle but when when he was getting a rash on it the nurses kept saying "let's take a look at Willy's willy" (his name is William) lol

I am after a bit of advice, my ds is 7wks and I have been using my cloth nappies occasionally (don't yet have enough for full time)
I have been using flushable liners in them as I have read that you should use a liner if you are using nappy rash creams as they can damage the fabrics and it is nice and easy to just flush away his poos and throw the nappies in the wash
Anyway poor little ds has recently started getting nappy rash on his doodle, the MACH nurse said that he must have sensitive skin and is getting rubbed by his wet nappies and the liners in the mcns
I have stopped using the mcns for now but I want to put him in them again and was just wondering what is the best (and easiest) way to look after the pooey nappies without a liner? He is breastfed so does runny poos so there is nothing solid to just tip away, should I rinse them first or can I just throw them in the washing machine?
Thanks in advance
So my sister had her baby last week and has been having difficulties feeding cause her milk still hasn't come in she had a pretty bad labour so we think her body is focussing on fixing itself and she doesn't have much coming out so she has to top him up with some formula (some weird stuff in a carton)
Anyway I went over to drop off some stuff on Sunday and her mil was there and basically propositioned me for my milk
I thought she was joking and laughed it off but I went past sisters house today and she said her mil was serious and apologized for her asking as it would be uncomfortable for me
I thought that babies shouldnt have someone else's milk even though it has been done throughout history but sister says that was mainly because of aids and that because I am family she wouldn't feel uncomfortable about it but I might
I have a super efficient supply and I don't think I would feel uncomfortable about it (I did when I was asked by her mil) but is it weird? Should I offer her some of my milk to tide them over until her milk comes in cause I have 500ml frozen at the moment? Is it ok for babies to have someone else's milk?
Not every face he makes is him 'concentrating on doing a poo'!!! According to sone women this morning ds should have filled his nappy with some massive poos, when I changed him there was nothing there (and he is not constipated cause the earlier nappy was full)
Then later on he was being held by another woman and was crying, according to her it was 'he has a pain in his tummy' and then another lady said 'he is hungry', no he was fed an hour ago he is just tired from being passed around like a hot potato and not being able to sleep!!!
Sorry rant over, I just needed to vent!
*sigh* I feel better now
