Hello all. My name is Kay. I am a Mum with 3 kids again 5, 3 and 6 months. Before kids I was already converting to chemical free, more natural products. But then kids and allergies came along! Suffice to say that now everything just about is made from scratch, not a chemical in sight and doing everything the natural way. While I was interested in home schooling it didn't seem the right time to go there, but we did choose a school with an alternative learning system instead of the standard school (and are very happy with it!). Our boy is thriving there. Our middle boy is the one with the most significant allergies...... and our bub has me on quite a restricted diet to prevent various symptoms that started to pop up. But we are all healthy and happy and loving life.

I have read with interest the posts so far and am looking forward to being involved.

Hi Kay. Welcome to Angelmothers. Wow, three children all so close in age. You must be so busy especially with those allergies. It's great to hear of parents doing the natural and no chemical way. It is very challenging these days but with the right knowledge, support and organization it can be done.

Glad you enjoy the messages on our mothers chat room and please feel free to ask anything, no matter how small or strange it may sound, I'm sure most mums will relate. Thank you for your contributions. Hugs and smiles Amina

Hi Cindy, Welcome to Angelmothers. I think this is a topic that many mothers will be able to contribute to and can also benefit from so I am going to start a new topic message called 'Siblings & Newborn baby'

Hope you get some helpful tips and enjoy your pregnancy. Hugs and smiles Amina xx

hey noeleen, im due at the end of october, and while i have introduce the baby to my son from the day i found out, i still think there will be a little bit of sibling rivalry because he has had me and his dad to himself for the last 3 years and this baby is also a girl. he talks to the baby and feels my stomach but i'd like to have a backup plan there just in case.

hi again thank-you for letting me know when the net baby is due. I have been thinking about your situtaion and the only other thing that i can think of is have your family around and help you as much as they can and also involve the little one. for example when you need to change baby's bottom as your 3rd old to maybe get the wet one's or the nappy for you.

Hi Guys, I am just reponding to Cindy's question on how to integrate their new baby into the family with minimal sibling rivalrary. I am the mum of 2 little ones, Zoe is 3 1/2 and Jakeb is nearly 2 yrs. I can remember those first months very clearly and in the beginning it was hard because I thought that I needed to have a nice quiet environment for Jakeb...so I kept sending Zoe off to do something else while I settled him. This didn't work as she felt left out and unloved and reacted badly and we all fought... as soon as I let go of this wy of doing things and accepted that bed times were going to be loud singing of twinkle little star beside his cot to send him to sleep with Zoe kissing him goodnight, then we all got along much better. It was much much easier when I included her into his routines and she felt valuable and needed by both of us. Much better.

Hello Cass and Rachel, Welcome to Angelmothers xx

Well Rachel, what does one do when we are all so busy? Well I try and take each day as it comes. Some days can get a bit crazy and then you get those days that work out wonderfully. I guess that is how it is (or how we choose) it to be in this 21st C.
It is really important to me to spend some quality time with those we love, eg. our children and also ourselves. We really need time as mothers to recuperate too.
I also have started prioritizing my time as opposed to scattering my energy and not accomplishing everything I wanted to in my day. Another thing I do is to appreciate what I HAVE done in my day as opposed to stressing out about what I haven't done.
May sound a bit weird but (for a wee while) I even wrote a list of what I actually did in my day (instead of my huge unrealistic list of what I had to do)and I was very happily surprised with how much I had achieved. xx P.s Don't keep that up though else you may end up with OCD. :) xx

Cass, hope your lil one is sleeping o.k now. I meant to reply to you ages ago but as Rachel mentioned, we all get so busy. Please let us know if you are still having any problems and I PROMISE you I will reply much much sooner.

Love and Blessings to you both and for anyone else reading this, Amina xxxxx

Hi everyone, I've just joined and thought I let you know about me. I'm a 24yr mother of two. Lily 5 and a half and Aidan 2 and a half. My partner and I use to live in Mapleton on the sunshine coast hinterland but move to Brisbane back in Oct 06, which was a terrible move for us. I don't know many other mothers as most of my friends are at uni or traveling around the big wide world... So thought I would join a group like this to put myself out there a bit. It sounds a bit funny joining a chat group is putting myself out there. Anyway, kids call
Cheers Samie
