Bibs

  Bibs- I would say there are three types of bibs. Dribble, milk,snacks and weaning and self feeding. Dribble bibs- All you need is a light bib to put on so their clothes don’t soak up too much dribble, normally worse when teething. We got some really nice bibs, some which were personalised from funky giraffe Milk / Snacks/ early weaning – This normally just covers their chest area, and protects their clothes. Normally with milk, snacks and early weaning you have the control so their clothes wont get food…

Why might I need to have stitches? You may need stitches after you've given birth to your baby vaginally. The area between the opening to your vagina and your back passage (perineum) may stretch so far that it tears a little as your baby is born. Your perineum is very stretchy. Even so, your baby may need a bit more room on his way out, resulting in a tear. About nine out of 10 mums tear to some degree when giving birth. This may sound alarming, but most tears are…
