MIRENA IUD ADVICE
For those that had the Mirena IUD due to heavy & painful periods, did you suffer with heavy bleeding & extreme period pain at the start of insertion before the mirena started working? I’m hoping this will all be worth it once it sorts itself out. But the continuous pain and bleeding isn’t nice.
 
11 MONTH OLD
Hi CM’s, I’m after some advice on delayed crawling/moving/walking. My son is 11 months old and still not crawling. He absolutely refuses tummy time and will either scream or roll back on to his back. He will happily sleep on his tummy and pull his knees up under him, but we can’t seem to get him to do it while playing. 
 
3 YEAR OLD
Hi Mums, We’re having a rough time with our nearly 3 year old boy (only child) and I’m desperate for advice and/or reassurance! Over the past 12 months we have fallen into the trap of sitting next to his bed at night time. 
 
IN-LAWS
Hello mummas. If your in-laws raise their voice at your child when you are their guests at their home and snatch special toys off them, how would you react?  
 
SCHOOL REPORT CARDS
Once again we’re being advised they will not include teacher comments, only grades A-E. This is apparently so they can prioritise teaching and learning as they continue to manage workload pressures due to COVID and other illnesses. Surely, with the 2 extra pupil free days each term they could manage 1 or 2 sentences for each child? Especially with smaller class sizes of 16-17 students? I’m curious to hear what other schools are doing with their semester reports.
SPEECH PATHOLOGIST ADVICE
I’m not a mum but need help finding a good local speech pathologist for my 3 year old son.

Are there any swim instructors who would be available to provide up to six private lessons for my 10yr old? We have a pool so a mix of lessons at home and a few in a bigger public pool would be great. Could potentially have a friend join too for a small group instead on 1:1. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi mums, I have a 2 year old who used to sleep relatively well overnight but is now refusing bedtime until about 9pm and starting the day at around 3:30-4:00am. She’s no longer in a cot because she was able to climb out. Does anyone have any advice for sleep consultants/help that is specifically aimed at toddlers? I feel like it is much more challenging to convince a toddler to sleep than to convince a baby… thanks. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi CM,I’m relocating back to Canberra mid this year. I previously saw a GP regularly in Gordon before leaving Canberra several years ago. Since leaving Sydney I’ve had a couple of kids and I’m looking for a GP that’s great with little people (infant & toddler) and women’s health. I’ll be living in the Narrabundah area and happy to travel south but not much north than civic. Any recommendations of GP’s who are taking new patients would be greatly appreciated.Thanks! ...
