    3. Please house, can I ask my school to send my bsc degree transcripts to Wes, then later used the notarized results to apply to Asian or European unis for MSc. Is it possible.
      I am asking because, it's over 3months I applied to get a student copy of my transcript, something that they wrote takes 2weeks to be sent to an email you provided. Nothing up till now. And scholarship application starts in February. I'm really tired of Nigeria's lackadaisical attitude to education.

      Delete
    4. Anon 14:47, it's better you go to your school's transcript office to complain or send someone. Tell then about the urgency of the student's copy of your transcript.

      Delete
    5. Alright. Thanks Adire

      Delete
    6. Nigerian schools have stopped sending to personal locations, you have to provide an institution within Nigeria and also tip someone there to retrieve it for you.

  2. How can I get my baby to sleep especially at night without breast. Like she wakes up several times at night and except u put the breast in her mouth, she won’t go back to sleep and will start crying.

    P.S she is not hungry because she will just suck for a few seconds and fall back asleep.

    I intend to stop breastfeeding when she’s 1 and this is starting to bother me because of this dependence on breast to sleep.

    And no, I won’t be able to do the cry it out method. I can’t stand her crying at all

    Any other suggestions will be very much appreciated

    1. I started giving my son yoghurt 2mths to when I weaned him. Like say btw 2am-3am. That is after feeding him by 10pm or 11pm. And then he'll sleep through the night like that. That's what I did because of his attachment to sucking at night. And it wasn't very difficult when I finally stopped breastfeeding him.

      Delete
    2. Give her a pacifier/binky/dummy instead.

      Delete
    3. Fidel, she already takes yoghurt but she doesn’t take bottles so that wouldn’t work

      Anon, my baby totally refused to take pacifier since she was about 3 months old so that’s like out of it for me

      Delete
    4. I didn’t use pacifier for any of my kids pls don’t it’s for lazy mother’s

      Delete
    5. Anon 15:04, na wa for this ur mindset. I bet u are one of those women that judge mothers just for the fun of it because I don’t understand how u will call a woman lazy for giving her child pacifier. Na wa

      Delete
    6. Anon 15:04,learn to talk. Which one is lazy mothers? πŸ™„
      It's pple like you that crucify women for birthing through CS or not breastfeeding exclusively. Learn to improve on your emotional intelligence.

      Delete
    7. 15:04, it is not right to say "it's for lazy mothers'" no two kids are alike; some kids do well with pacifiers others reject it out rightly.

      Delete
    8. Have you tried giving her water instead? It worked with my second baby, that's if likes water though

      Delete
    9. Well if all else fails, you’ll have to do the cry out method to deal with the breast dependence which will get worse for you in terms of your sleep self. You need sleep to function well and so you’ll be emotionally and mentally there for her and take care of her. If you don’t sleep well you’ll find yourself irritated all the time and yelling self. She’ll cry for few days, or tops 1wk. Your child also need to sleep through the night for proper brain development and emotional growth. So Choose one. Goodluck.

      Delete
    10. Give her children drink with straw whenever she wakes up at night.

      Delete
    11. I breastfed for 18 months . My baby to slept with breast in her mouth. How did I stop her ? Cry it out. When she woke up in the middle of the night to suck, I would wake up and make her food. She would cry then eventually eat. Within three days she stopped waking up. That was how I weaned my child

  3. Does anyone have an idea about Nylon business

    Pure water packing bag and bread Nylon

    1. How do I open xlsx files on iPhone 13? It doesn’t open. Please help!

      Delete
    2. This is a good business but location, source of supplies and capital is key. Where do you intend to get your goods. The interest on nylon is like provision business. The key word is turn over. If you have a good location especially near a market where turn over is high. Embark on the business. You will not regret it. Remember not to establish it near a wholesaler If you are not selling in wholesale because people will not mind to enter taxi to your competitors shop because of N50.00 difference. Lastly don't depend on pure water factories or bakeries around you for sale because most of them make their own nylon or buy direct from manufacturer

  4. Please I need a review on R...le maternity hospital or can anyone suggest a good maternity hospital on the mainland?

    Also at what week should one register for antenatal.

    First time mom.

    Thank you

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Do you mean Mother and Child in Surulere?
      I gave birth to my first child there. It wasn't a bad experience, just that there are a lot of women using their services too, so you'd have to go there very early on the days you have antenatal, in order to see the doc early.
      You can also try the one in Lagos Island, close to St Nicholas hospital (I have forgotten the name), it's very good and well equipped.

      ... And you should register for antenatal as soon as you confirm that you're pregnant. You'll be going once a month for now, and increase the frequency as you approach your due date.

      IMPORTANT: start taking folic acid

      Delete
    2. Thanks Priceless Elly, the one I was referring to at Lagos Island is called Island maternity.

    6. Grey hair is not necessarily a sign of ageing, genetics play a role. Ageing gracefully is not achieved solely by popping pills, lots of other factors determine it.

    3. Plastic id is black, it is used when you are not signed into your Google account. You will type it in when you click on the box below "reply as". It will bring Google account, name/url and anonymous, you type in your name when you click on name / url. Sometimes people's IDs appear as black or plastic due to network. You can't delete comment in plastic id, it's like Anonymous.

  22. For the past one year now I've been having menstrual-like cramp occasionally. I've tried to track my menstrual cycle to predict at what point it comes but I've noticed that it's haphazard. It comes anytime. I've done two pelvic scans relating to this complain but nothing was found. I did one at a reputable lab in Surulere and another at FMC. My period is regular and of normal flow. But I'm worried. I'll be 30 later this month and not yet married.

    Is this normal? Should I be worried?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The scan said you should not be worried. It might be cramps that come with ovulation (some women experience it).

    1. It depends on why you want your child to be a citizen.
      I'd say choose Canada as the benefits for their citizens are better than US e.g free health care.

    2. USA is because your child becomes a citizen.

    1. Lagos , In places like Abuja,getting a job is by connection or God's grace. Portharcourt is cool but Lagos is a very busy place where you'd definitely get something to do without knowing or paying anyone for a job.
