  • What actually is the shiver that people refer to as 'someone walking over their grave'?

    I occasionally get these, not entirely sure I believe its someone walking over my grave, so what is it? And its not because I'm shivering because I'm cold, its just one big shiver.

    My daughter who is fast approaching 3yo, used to be great at going to bed, you could put her into bed between 7-730pm and she would maybe chat to her toys for a while but by 8pm you could guarentee she would be asleep. Thanks to the long school holidays and our family holidays etc she now refuses to stay in her room at bedtime, in constantly in and out, meaning some nights it can be 9pm gone before she eventually stops fighting with us and going to sleep, which makes her very cranky the next morning when we have to be up at 7am,and out of the door at 8am. A friend suggested putting a stair gate on her bedroom & not shutting the bedroom door once we've done the going to bed routine of teeth, toilet and story and letting her have a tantrum while learning to stay in her bedroom, my OH says this would be worth a try, but I don't like the idea of 'locking' her in her bedroom, even though I know she is just messing us about! Advice/Ideas please?? TIA. xx

    I work for an ever-expanding company (bosses are my inlaws) and I work part-time, 3 days a week. I initally came on board because childcare was becoming an issue in my previous job. My duties are logging customers on the database, filing, general reception duties, basic SAGE work etc. Recently they have taken on a new office person full time (my brother, although others were interviewed) and I feel like I am being pushed to the bottom because he is getting all the training I never got, and I feel like I am just been left all the crap jobs, I know they need doing but I would like to feel equal. Especially as when my inlaws retire, it shall be myself & my OH that take over!!! I just feel rubbish and unmotivated, if I worked for someone else I would have no problem mentioning it but because its family I feel different.

    Hi, I am thinking of returning to work, but since being made redundant days before I found out I was pregnant last February, I haven't got a job to return to. I realise I will have to put my daughter into nursery, but I am worried this will be expensive, the cheapest I've found is £29 per day, thus meaning I'd have to work 6hrs per day just to break even. My partner works full time, as do the grandparents meaning I haven't got anyone who would look after my daughter for cheap, or even free. My question is this, I have heard that Child Tax Credit cover so much of your child care costs, but how many hours do you have to be working anyways to be entitled to this? I have another daughter whose at school full time as well, so really I'm limited to the hours I can work during the day. Any help would be really appreciated as I really haven't got a clue about any of this!! Thanks in advance.

    My mother in law thinks that because I chose to have children with her son, I should automatically want to spend every possible minute with him, and thinks because I go to a slimming class one night a week and go for a driving lesson another, this makes me the life and soul of the party! I very rarely go out on any other occasion, and she makes me feel bad for trying to have some 'me' time away from my other half and my kids, both whom I love dearly and we make a huge effort to spend one day of the weekend together. On the other hand, she thinks is perfectly acceptable for him to go out religiously one night a week with his friends to the pub. She says I can't be a mum and be a party girl at the same time, but she doesn't understand I'm not out every weekend, falling in and out of different pubs, I go to friends houses for coffee or something, and I don't think its healthy for couples to spend every possible minute together! My boyfriend and I don't disagree over this so why does she have a problem?? I'm 21, my boyfriend's 27. Thanks in advance

    Hi, my daughter is 10mos and is getting her 2nd tooth. While I understand it must be painful for her, she's fine during the day but when I put her down to bed she throws a right paddy!! I am a firm believer of letting her cry it out because I know she's clean/dry/fed/watered and I've just put bongela on her gums so I leave her for 10mins then go check/put her dodo back in etc and it carries on. Sometimes if we're really getting nowhere with her, I bring her back down onto the sofa and she falls asleep in minutes! Now shes started waking again through night, I give her a dodo back, rub some more bongela on her gums but then the paddys start when I leave her room, same as at bedtime but at 1, 3 or 5am I can't let her cry it out the same because I have other children and our house is terraced! So the same sofa routine starts again and again she's asleep in minutes, but having said that I don't want her to get in the habit of being picked up all the time, she's been so good at going to bed until now!! I am absolutely shattered and feel awful, my partner does try and help but I feel bad for him cos he works Mon-Fri and needs to be able to function. Also, I might add, she very rarely (as in three times a month max) naps for longer than 20mins twice a day. She's still eating and playing just the same, I just wish she'd sleep the same!! Sorry its so long, and my question is, does anyone have anything else I could try to ease her teething pain, I don't want to just dope her up on calpol all the time! Thanks for reading, xxx

    I use whole cow's milk to make her cereal with (following advice from my HV) but my daughter now won't touch her formula, I've tried everything from adding half a teaspoon of banana milkshake powder, to giving her the bottle at different time throughout her feed. She only has her milk for bedtime and breakfast time, and I understand how important it is for her to betting the right amount of calcium, and she is eating yoghurts and a small amount of cheese but what else can I do to try and get her milk into her? Also, I am aware they only advise you to give other drinks at mealtime, but how much should she be drinking really throughout the day? Sometimes I'm lucky to get 9oz of fluid into her during the day, but again, she's not interested in it, I have to give it to her in a bottle as the follow on cups, she won't take!!
