Hi all, I was wondering if there were any mums in the Goldfields area, I live in Kalgoorlie/Boulder and was wondering if there were any other mums near by wanting to chat and stuff. I have 2 kids, an 8yr old and a 1 yr old. I am also an Avon rep if any one is interested in ordering or joining. Contact through here or add me as a friend and we can go from there.
Hi I'm from Perth..used to live in Hedland too..was born and bred there til I moved to perth
My name is Bobbi-lee...I have a 1 year old son and am a childrens photographer.
I have my own child/baby photography business in Perth and am currently offering a mini photo session with 20 custom designed and printed photo cards for Christmas! Sessions need to be booked by the 20th October, and they will be on the 24th October, so that the Christmas cards can be designed and printed in time for Christmas!
As a mother I know how much I love to show off pictures of my son and I love the idea of giving personal christmas cards with his picture on the cover every year...last year my family loved my christmas cards with him on the cover!
I know you will love them too and so will your family and friends. It is a nice unique gift in a way. You will also get some prints in my special mini session. The mini session pricing has prints built into the cost, so you can save money and get cards and prints rather than pay the full price of a session and no prints.

We just got over our third battle of teething sessions..lol This time round she was getting a cold at the same time, so we had high temps and grizzle cold crys. Poor lil' buggers!
I think bubs might be heading for more teeth soon as she is going through all the motions of leading up to a teething week - not eating as much, chucking more hissy fits, and longer naps during the day... Guess no one wants to come babysit for me in a couple of weeks...haha

Lana- thanks for u tips n advice my sons temp went down after a couple of hours and hasnt had one since which is good cause i stressed so much about it and was so scared!being a new mum n all. your poor bubs a 3 day high temp poor her n u lol i hope it doesnt happen again! its not nice isnt it, yes i think we have more fun to look forward too! but its worth it!

Mathida - my little one suffers from extremely high temps when she is teething aswell - her temp was up in the 39's for 3 days once...which freaked me out! She was still active and drinking but was off her food but because she was still taking her milk and playing I didn't stress too much, just made sure she had her panadol and kept in cool clothing - most of the time just in nappy.
She is a late bloomer in the teeth dept getting her first at 11mths and she got 4 at once - this is what i put the high temps down too. She gets her teeth in batches and cross cutting. She is 18mths now and only has 8 teeth so far - so many more fun days are ahead of us.
High temps are scarey in babies and stressful on parents - specially when you have done everything to bring them down. Just make sure they are keeping up with fluids and are still active; and if all else fails just head off to the doc's no matter how big or small the problem may be. I have found just ringing through to the health nurses helpful at times too.

Hi Nicole and everyone, I live in a little country town called Dowerin. It is in the Central Wheatbelt - about 1.5 hours from Perth. I have a son - Austin - and he turns 2 in 3 weeks!!! Oh my gosh, how fast does the time fly.... any way, love to hear from any other country mums....

I am no nurse or doctor, but that is a pretty serious temp!! My two girls never had temperatures with their teething, which is to not say that babies don't when they are teething, but mine didn't. The only symptom they occassionally got with it was a slightyly runny clear nose. As i said a temp of 39.7 is serious and can be dangerous, I would assume that u have already gotten your bub seen to by a dr about the temp, but if u haven't then i would definately take him/her to be checked over if for nothing else but peace of mind. As far as pain relief goes for the teething, have u tried anything? such as something cold to chew on, mouth gels like bonjella or sedagel, or even homeopathic liquids such as Braur Teething Relief (from the chemist), and if all else fails then panandol. Hope this helps.

Hi there! I am new to WA after moving from America about six months ago. My husband is from Perth and just looking to meet some WA moms that I can get to know and ask advice when needed. We have two sons, one is 3 and the other is almost 3 months. Looking forward to hearing from everyone!

i used to live in south hedland...came back here just over 2 years ago. i lived on trainee cres in the townhouses...very crappy but could have been worse in south lol so i can sympathise with ya =)
were planning on going back up north so the hubby can be residential instead of FIFO but i wont be going back to heddy hehe...planning on wickam or dampier cause its a bit nicer if you gotta be up that way

Just over a year; we are in South Hedland. Not the best of places - in a bit of a crappy area.
I have told hubby i'll give 5yrs then I want to head back to perth; mind you the place can grow on you though. It's one of those areas you love to hate and hate to love!
Right now its like a winter's day outside minus the cold - aircon is running - its not to hot but muggy.... some days you wake up like a sweaty rag! its disgusting. Hey but the surrounding scenery is nice....lol

I feel your pain!! LOL My husband began working away when my oldest was only 10 months old, its hard enough adjusting to being a new mum and then having a FIFO husband!!! Its hard work, stressful and most of - lonely, but great when they are home the full days on their week off ! I live for the week he is home for the sanity and the break of not having to do absolutely everything by myself, i seriously think full time single mothers deserve a medal! Anyway, if u wanna chat more, u can add me as a friend on fb if u like and we can chat thru there!
