Good morning to you all here.. I am an ardent follower of updates on this thread since my wife took in and I everything I have learned here has been beneficial to me directly or our friends.

Now this is it: my wife EDD date is 8 days gone and yet there is no sign the baby is ready to come out. We went to the hospital on saturday and her cervix was checked and found to be only 3cm. By the doctor calculation, he said she should fall into full labour in about 12-16 hrs!! Here we are 5 days after and there is no sign of labour. Her contractions come within 5-6 hours inbetween and they are mild.

Can I opt for induce labour? Or should we wait for another 6 days( since they say EDD date can either come 2 weeks earlier or 2 weeks after). Baby heart beat is fine as mother and baby were checked again on wednesday.

What was the doctors advise, some people have their baby before their EDD some after EDD. Doctors will advise till like 41/42 weeks before anything could be done. But if she is falling into labour and there is no dilation the doctor might suggest CS. I am just using my lil knowledge but seek the doctors advise.

The dr should have told you natural ways you could help induce labour. Google "natural way to induce labour". Can't remember all of them now. As long as baby is not distressed & doc is not worried, relax. I had my baby 6am on the day I would have been induced using only natural methods. cheesy

Hi mothers,

I'm trying to make my son's pap myself from the scratch. I bought guinea corn, corn and millet. According to what I read on this thread, I need to soak the corn for 4days, add the guinea corn and millet the 3rd day. My concern is the water on the corn seems to be fermenting, and av only soaked it for a day, is it normal? Or I need to change d water everyday.

Secondly, I stopped breastfeeding 2weeks ago, and my son still wakes up in d middle of the night as usual very hungry, so I give him hollandia youghurt, I bought the big pack with 24pcs. I tried giving him milk, but he is not patient enough for me to prepare it, When he wakes up in the middle of the night and cries a lot. I don't want him 2 get use to jst hollandia youghurt, please what are other healthy drinks you advise I give him at night?

Thanks in advance

@Demmykay, there's no difference between both milk just the container that is different. I think they used the second container (the expensive one) when they initially changed the name from sma progress to sma 2. Some marketers will tell u the cheaper one is Nigeria while the expensive one is foreign. Its all crap. That was what I was made to believe up till 2m ago when I wanted to buy from tesco and discovered its the cheaper one (advanced gold system) they actually sell all over Europe and when I made enquiries, was told that expensive one was only on the shelves for a short while before the container was changed. U can check asda and tesco website or just Google sma website.
