Re: Toys!

My LO's favorites so far are the Aden + Anais security blankets (actually, he loves grabbing and sucking on burp cloths too, lol), the Manhatten Toy Winkle, and the Green Toys Twist Teether. There's...

My husband's snoring wakes up the baby

But he won't let me move the baby into the nursery! Everytime I bring it up he gets upset, and says I'm trying to take the baby away from him. But I'm sitting here listening and watching over the...

Re: How do you play?

You know, other than the toys hanging from his play mat and bouncy seat, my son doesn't seem all that interested in other toys yet. I keep pulling them out, but he pays them little attention. I'm...

Re: Swimming and summer plans

My inlaws have a vacation home on a (small, calm, man-made) lake a couple hours away, so I will definitely be taking Munchkin swimming there as soon as the air/water temps are warm enough! He loves...

Re: How are you enjoying your wine, coffee, sushi etc?

At the BFing class I took the lactation consultant told us that there was no need to pump and dump unless you are really feeling the alcohol. Before that, not enough alcohol is getting into the...

Re: How are you enjoying your wine, coffee, sushi etc?

He is SO much better. I complain about my diet (a lot, especially to my husband) and the fact that I can't ever eat out, can't ever eat any convenience foods, etc., but I have no doubt whatsoever...

Re: How are you enjoying your wine, coffee, sushi etc?

*cry* There are far, far fewer things I can eat now in comparison to when I was pregnant. For the last almost 6 weeks I've been on a super restricted diet to try to improve my son's reflux. My...

Re: Who is still pacifying?

Munchkin never really took the pacifier consistently, so we're done trying it. Now that he's opening his hands up much more he is sucking his hand/thumb a lot.

Re: more?

6 weeks ago I was wondering why anyone ever chooses to have a second child. Things were just so tough with my LO feeling like crud. Now that he's doing better though, we're thinking about it. :)....

Re: Bedtime routines

Man, I can't wait until my little one sleeps that long!! The longest stretch of sleep I've had since his birth was probably 5 hours. Normally I don't get more than 3.5 hours continuous.

Re: Bedtime routines

No strict routine, but I usually start around 8:30 and he falls asleep between 9:30 and 10:30. Diaper change, get him changed into pjs, nurse. If he falls asleep nursing the first time he'll...

Re: Don't know what to do

Alv, cutting out all dairy was the very first thing we tried, when he was 3 weeks old. We saw some improvement, but even after 2 weeks of that we were still having a lot of problems. That's when we...

Re: I have officially lost my mind!!

Not at all nuts if that is what you want for your family!! You and your husband know best what that is; don't listen to anyone who tells you otherwise. :)

Re: Pp bleeding

I had some bleeding for a bit longer than 6 weeks, though it was sporadic at the end. Pretty sure that's within the range of normal. Still, I feel for you; I got so sick of wearing pads or liners...

Re: Diaper question

Like Nyzira said, it's normal to go a day or a few without a bowel movement, and even having just one poopy diaper per week can be normal for some EBF babies. So your LO is likely just fine! :)

Crystal (and everyone else), thank you (truly) for the reply and suggestions. I think I will give the gripe water a try. I started the elimination diet on Wed and my son has had only one painful...

Re: Don't know what to do

Saw the pediatrician today, and we're going to try the elimination diet. A few more days of formula while I start it, and then on Saturday I can start nursing again. We'll see how things are in 2...

Re: Eric Jr.'s birth story!

Glad I wasn't the only one suspicious long before this birth story. I'd love to believe the best, but things were always just pretty off here.

Re: anyone else???

Mine wants to be held a lot too, and sometimes won't sleep anywhere but on me. I know it's not the same as being able to put the baby down completely, but are you wearing her sometimes so that you...
