Re: BF'ing Mamas w/challenging babies...are family & friends blaming BF'ing?

Lewis's fussy periods are 11:00 am and 8:30 pm, like clockwork. DH's coworker said she had to give up garlic while breastfeeding because it made the baby so colicky.

:eek:

I'm a garlic addict....

Re: birth control suggestions please

I think for the first six months we're going to use condoms. I am bfing and will probably go back on yasmin once other foods are introduced / breast-milk is in less demand.

Re: Vaccinations

I can't wait to get this guy vaccinated! We'll do everything on time. There's even a rotavirus vaccine that staves off lots of versions of the stomach flu - it's not paid for by the province, though,...

Re: Our Chit Chat Thread for PREGNANT women! :)

So still pregnant but definitely feeling the baby, er, down there every time I sit. And every time it moves. I don't think I'll be long now!

Re: do they ladyscape for you at the birth?

Yeah, it's not policy in Canada any more - just because it's not medically necessary and could be considered invasive/against the woman's wishes. The only exception I think might be if they have to...

Re: watermelon obsession

I have also been addicted to the watermelon! I could eat an entire one in a day. It's best/worst when DH isn't home and I'm all alone to revel in the messiness of it. Full of vitamins and water -...

Re: Diaper Genie - Worth it or Waste of Money?

Cloth are definitely the most value for your money, and with that in mind the DG is not good financials. Not to mention all those bags upon bags are pretty rough on the environment.

Re: Things I'm not telling DH

Re: Help, can I have an infection?

Mm, IMO if your parts aren't itchy or red it's probably not a yeast infection. In my experience with UTIs it burns when I pee well before I get any kind of backache or anything, and the pee might...
