Re: Anyone Dealing with Cradle Cap?

Bentley's scalp seems to be really dry after I bath him... and I'm not sure if it's the beginning of cradle cap or not. Cradle cap usually has a yellowish color doesn't it? Anyway, I've been putting...

Re: To Swaddle or Not to Swaddle?

Bentley likes it. We use the swaddle wrap at night and he sleeps great. His hands are just out of control so when they aren't wrapped down, he's pulling out his binkie or grabbing his face. Sometimes...

Re: Where did all our mommies go??

Re: last week of september!

Still pregnant here! I'm 40 weeks on Wednesday so could still go a while but honestly thought he'd be born by now. Mostly just wishful thinking I guess. I've had SO MANY contractions the last few...

Re: Who's still pregnant?

I'm still pregnant. I had hoped this baby would come a bit early but my previous pregnancies have been born really close to my due date so I expected that this time around. I'm due the 28th, so still...

Re: o/t vent: is dh is denial or what?!

Re: Roan Update! *9.12.11*

Try Gripe Water for gas! I haven't a clue what's in it I just remember it being recommended to me with my youngest and it worked great. You can find it at a natural foods / homeopathic type store.
