dougiesmum replied to topic Ho often do you wash your hair?

Never The most it gets is water when I have a shower. It took about 2 months before it settled down, but now it is much healthier than before. Save a fortune on shampoo etc too!

dougiesmum replied to topic Baby's room/or lack of - what did you do

We'll have bubs in bed with us (2 b'room unit) and probably Ds as well a lot of the time lol. we have bunks in DS's room for when they are a bit older, but for the time being that works for us.
