Right, I'm stuck at home with the two of them and I'm calling on your for help. Feel free to use this thread for any parenting issues you may have.

Gigi has two gnat bites, one on her shoulder and one on her shin. I've put loads of creams and lotions on then , but she keeps scratching them and pulling the skin off, so they won't heal.

So I bought some lovely kiddy plasters the other day, with monsters and crocodiles on, but she just pulls them off as soon as I put them on.

How do I get the little demon to leave the bites alone so they have a chance to heal?

you could always tie her hands behind her back otherwise Big Grin My parents actually tried that one on me to stop me sucking my thumb, didn't work i just became a little Hoodini (sp?).

Any ideas on how to stop a two year old soaking through his nappy at night I've changed his bedding twice already this week Sad

It's that smiley Big Grin . I'd recognise it anywhere.

Re the nappy thing - are you using cheapies or one of the big brands - they do make a difference

I knew that would come up, and as you've probably guessed it's the cheapies - but they're Lidls finest, and they work fine during the day... please don't say I have to pay out for pampers not only does it go against the grain but it eats into my alcohol fund Big Grin

you pays you money, you takes your choice :pimp:

COuld you switch to Lidl's own brand vodka and make a saving there? Or their own brand meths is quite good if your don't let it touch your teeth.

already there unfortunately - not the meths the Vodka that is.

Anyway I guess I could try pampers or soemthing equally expensive just at nights for now. See if it makes a difference. He does tend to have milk late at night which should stop really but it's hard to fit everything in (dinner etc) before his bedtime IYSWIM?
