Re: Visitors?

I can't stand unexpected visitors or people (ahem, MIL) who call when they're on the highway while on the way over. At this point when she pulls that shtuff I just stay in the bedroom and let DF...

Re: OT - Tax

I did ours as soon as we got Alexander's SSN (since he was so kind as to make his arrival in the last few days of 2011) and we've received our refund already.

We don't have any plans for it yet. ...

Re: Where is baby sleeping?

At night Alexander sleeps in his bassinet next to my side of the bed in arm's reach. We swaddle him at night in fleece swaddle sacks.
For naps during the day/evening it's pretty much wherever he...

Re: Tired Tuesday

We occasionally have a one-off night where Alexander is up every 2 or 3 hours, but for the most part we get one 5-6 hour stretch then another 3-4 hour stretch. He's usually out from about 10pm-4am,...

Angry Cluster feeding, I do not like you.

This evening my family had a little get-together for my mom's birthday. Coincidentally, this weekend Alexander hit another cluster feeding run; he's been on the boob every 1-2 hours during the day...

Re: Interesting parenting...

Speaking as a gun owner.... over the top and beyond irresponsible.

Quick question about, well, poop...

Orange-ish poop: normal, right?

Alexander is EBF and his last diaper had a poop that was a bit orange-colored. He's been acting normal otherwise, nothing strange going on.

Re: Who does baby look like?

Daddy's nose, my ears, my hands. I think his general face shape is more me - he resembles my sister's youngest son, so something in his face is from my side of the family!
We're eagerly waiting...

Re: ***Weekly breastfeeding check in!***

I feel like I constantly have a baby hanging off my boobs, so I figure it's going well. :)
We're still using the shield most of the time. My nipples are just too flat unless he's energetic enough...

Re: Tossy Tuesday?

Fussy here, too. DF came home from work and Alexander & I were both crying. :(

Everyone is better now. I got a break and Alexander got Daddy time.

Re: Awake Time

Lately Alexander has been up & alert the majority of the day between about 9am to 9pm or so. A few days a week he'll get a solid 2 hour nap plus a couple short dozes here & there, but most days he...

Re: Not pooping much today...?

I like how we're calmly discussing our children's pee, poop, & fart habits in "public" and no one is screaming in horror. :giggle: :tmi:

We've had some luck with using Gripe Water if Alexander...

Re: Not pooping much today...?

We had a similar experience with Alexander this past week - no poops at all overnight, one small one during the day. My LC told me in advance that BF babies sometimes can go days without pooping...

Thumbs up Bathtime success - finally!

We've had the worst experiences at bathtime. Alexander would scream bloody murder as soon as his butt hit the water & wouldn't stop until he was wrapped in his towel...until tonight.

It sort of sucks being postpartum!

Re: Nicknames

Nugget or Li'l Nugget.
He had these skinny little legs when he was born, like chicken legs. Chicken nugget became Nugget. :D

Re: Rate Your Birthing Experience

I voted 4 only because I didn't find out until 3 hours before he was born that an epidural would probably kill me. Since I didn't plan to go natural, didn't take any sort of classes or have any sort...

For the last freaking time, we are not going to start feeding Alexander baby cereal to "make him sleep through the night." He's barely a month old. He doesn't need to sleep...

Re: How many hours is baby awake during day?

I'd say 6-8hrs between ~10am-10pm, usually at least an hour at a time. He's been quite alert lately!
