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.

Hi Canberra Mums, my child recently had multiple hospital admissions and was referred for an MRI and MRS (similar but different scan), which has to been done under general anaesthetic. We are told the wait at TCH will be months but we are keen to have it done sooner. Happy to pay, prefer Canberra but would consider Sydney if we have to. Any ideas where we can have this done relatively soon. Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less

Help! My 6 year old seems to be obsessed with how she looks- she is always mindful of the clothes she wears, shoes, hair! Always checking herself in the mirror- fixing her hair - before she sleeps, as soon as she wakes up fixes her hair -We are always telling her how beautiful she is , so it is not that she is in an environment where she is made to feel she is not a beautiful girl - is this something I should be concerned about ?? If yes- how do i help her understand? We have tried telling her , what is more important is ‘ a smile on your face’ because that is what makes you beautiful- and nothing else actually matters!TIA ...
