Re: EWWWW I just wanted to share this.

Ewww!

I've heard that the bath toys that spray water can get the same inside. :eek:

I haven't been here in a while. I've been really busy with three kids (homeschooling my oldest, my pre-schooler girl, and my rainbow baby girl) plus working. I'm struggling a little with PPD, too,...

Re: Question for Mommies of Rainbow Babies 01/17

My girl is 6 months old and we currently use a sleep sack instead of a blanket. I don't remember when we started letting our older two use blankets. I'm guessing next winter she'll have a blanket.

Re: Mommies, more babies?

Right now I'm feeling like I'm in over my head with three. But I won't make anything final now while I'm sleep deprived and struggling with PPD.

Re: your favorite part

My daughter just started consistently giving grins to me and my husband, so I have to go with that. It just melts my heart when she sees my face and gives a huge gummy grin at me.

Re: Back on bed rest (also posted in Nov DDC)

Twenty-eight week is good, but hopefully bedrest will help again and she'll stay put a bit longer.

Re: period or not, and low breast milk supply

You can get your cycle back while breastfeeding. I usually get mine back at around 4-5 months, but earlier is not unheard of.

I have heard that supply can dip right before and during your period...

Re: Are you done?

We're pretty sure we're done with three. But we don't want to do anything permanent and then regret it if we change our minds. So the current plan is to wait until our youngest if five. I figure that...

Re: Mommy Weight Loss

I gained 12 lbs during pregnancy. When I weighed myself a week after birth I was down 15 lbs. I think I've gained some since then because I've been grazing on food all day to deal with the fatigue...

Re: Thrush

When I had it with my son I had to make sure to clean my breasts with plain water after every feeding and that seemed to help. I also found that the powder seemed to work better for the thrush diaper...

Re: Three for Thursday (LO)

My baby is only 4 weeks old, so these answers aren't as interesting as for an older baby. ;)

Does your LO like the pool/ocean? She only mildly tolerates baths. I'm guessing she wouldn't like a...

Re: Breastfeeding questions for those who have BTDT

What you're dealing with sounds a lot like my son. With him it was caused by oversupply. When you make too much milk the baby can wind up getting too much foremilk and not enough hind milk. That...

Re: nick names?

Most of the time we refer to our baby by a nick name ("Libby") rather than her full name. Sometimes I call her "Little Libby Lou Who".
