  • Congratulations Felicity

    Salam,

    Do you have some news to share with us?

  • #2
    Yup Had my first (of many, God willing) Algerian/British mix little girl, 13 days ago. I was pondering putting a thread about it, but then I thought lots of people on here have children and don't go on about it, but maybe they would if they were a member of the site at the time their wee one was born...

    I was just thinking about it the other day actually, in the short time I have been a member of this site, how much my life and view of things has changed, and what good support this site has been throughout these changes.

            Congrats!

            Hey! I was wondering what in the world Al-Khiyal was prompting us to when he started this thread as just titled "Felicity." Now I get it

            Congratulations, Felicity, to you and your husband! May God bless your new daughter with His presence, protection, wisdom and peace throughout all of her precious life!

            Sincerely,
            New_Friend

              I like that the name on the thread got changed :P And thank you all for the nice comments

              I do have a fairly random question though... our little girl has slightly dry skin, so I am using normal baby oil, but my husband keeps saying in Algeria they put olive oil on babies, is that true? He really wants to put olive oil on her...

                Salam ya Felicity,

                If you do a Google search under 'Olive oil babies skin' you'll find many, many entries where people have written about how good it is. But lurking among all the articles and posts there is also recent advice from a leading dermatologist that cautions against using it as it can damage a baby's sensitive skin. Maybe 'ask your midwife/doctor' and 'don't rush into any decision right now' is the best thing you could do. Fact-check before you make your mind up.

                  My biggest worry was the fact that she would smell funny... but now I think its definitely a bad idea -thank you al-khiyal. Obviously just because something has traditionally been used doesn't mean its safe or a good idea.

                    Felicity Al Khiyal is right do your own research, but you will probably find everything has its pros and cons including baby oil.
                    I personally used olive oil on my girls. I believed it had less chemicals. However everything should be used in moderation.

                      Koulesh mabrouk, Felicity ! (I would have done some youyous but my neighbours would think I've gone crazy!)
                      So your daughter is an Aries (like my son), they are the best people !

                      PS: I have just discovered this thread.

                        congratulations to you and your husband and both your families. May your child be a coolness for your eyes, may she grow up to be a happy, righteous person who brings happiness to all around her. Ameen.

                        Nobody i know has ever used baby oil or any other johnson & johnson products on their babies and neither do I. I use olive oil on my baby. The hospital that my baby was born in, advises all the parents to use olive oil, unless there is a medical reason not too.
