Re: Rolling over?

My boys have done it by "accident"/out of frustration of being on their tummies but it's been a while since they last did it.

3. It's ok to let them cry a little in order to get out of the house on time.

Re: Tummy sleeping?

Both boys seem to prefer their stomachs. They don't seem to sleep as long on their backs, especially Blake who has acid reflux.

Re: Dressing baby

Mostly onesies and snap t-shirts with diapers. I usually only dress them in an outfit if we're leaving the house or taking pictures.

Yep! That's the hardest part for me too. I try to alternate but one is a much louder cryer so it's harder to ignore him.

Re: Keeping a breastfed baby full longer

DS1 has only been home a week so we're slowly working up to feeding mostly at the breast. He feeds at the breast 1-2 times per day and the rest of the time he gets breastmilk in a bottle. I have a...

Re: BlueLight is having her babies!

Thanks Megan! I just hope not to get her again any time soon. I hesitate to report her unless she does something really wrong out of concern for what she might do when I'm not there. When I called...

Yesterday as I was going to get lunch she yells across the room "how old are you mommy", as if it should matter. I...

Re: Whooping Cough and visitors

My understanding is that the Tetanus and Diphtheria are needed every 10 years but the Pertussis is only needed once from the ages of 11 and 64.

Re: Whooping Cough and visitors

I got mine on my last day in the hospital, It's a combo of the Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis, but question, if we got the whooping cough vaccine as kids why do we need to get it again?
