Re: Wednesday Whines

This is nothing compared to funerals and wakes (so sorry!), but my LO has been diagnosed with torticollis. That basically means her neck muscles are weaker on one side (she was probably born that...

Re: Solids

My pediatrician suggested a little rice cereal in LO's bottle (I'm an exclusive pumper, so she gets breastmilk only) due to her reflux, but that was a disaster on her tummy. So we stopped doing that...

Re: sleeping

18 months of that? You poor thing -- I can't imagine! I'm exhausted from just 2.5 months of it! :) Autumn did sleep about five hours in a row last night (a record for her), so hoping that's a...

Re: sleeping

I'm jealous of the people who have babies that sleep long stretches of time! Autumn usually sleeps for about three hours in a row. Sometimes it's only two, sometimes we luck out and get four.

Re: Reflux

Just an update -- we gave up the rice cereal (seemed to cause more problems than it was worth) and stuck with breastmilk. Zantac seemed to help a little bit, but not much. So last week we switched...

Re: Baby smiles

Autumn has been smiling for a month now, but it would just be the occasional grin -- at me or DH (usually when she first saw us in the morning), sometimes at her monkey mobile on her swing. Then we...

Re: Shots and 2 month check up

Yup. Autumn was 9 lbs, 14 oz and 22 inches long. She is small (was born on the smaller end) but "perfectly proportionate" according to our pediatrician. :)

She had all her shots and the...

Re: Reflux

Thanks Melissa. I have thought about stopping with the breastmilk (she had latch issues, so I have to pump a lot to keep up my supply, which is a challenge) to see if a formula developed to help...

Anyone else have a baby with moderate or severe reflux issues? Or had a baby in the past that did? If so, what have you done to deal with it?

Autumn has pretty bad reflux. :( I am...

Re: Clothing Sizes and Diapers Sizes

Autumn started off wearing preemie diapers (newborn were just a little too roomy depending on the brand), and is now wearing newborn which fit pretty well. She started off with newborn clothes...

Re: Daycare

I'm a teacher and I decided to take the rest of the school year off. The lack of money really stinks, but it's worth it to spend more time with the baby. I go back in August and will need daycare...

Re: Does your baby like baths?

Autumn hates baths. I'm glad to see that it's possible for a baby to learn to like them (like Cassidy), because I'd really like her to find them less stressful and unpleasant! She does enjoy...

What are your views on pacifiers?

Just out of curiosity -- do you use a paci with your little one? Why or why not? For those who have used them with previous children, did it work out well or did you regret it?

I started using a...

It's going horribly here. :( Autumn had trouble latching on during the initial few days, so she ended up having to take formula the day we got home from the hospital to avoid dehydration. I've...

Re: Curious??? When did you have your 1st cervical check?

I was checked at 36 weeks and again at 37 weeks. I had her at 38 weeks, so not sure if they were planning to check again that week or not.

Btw, I had ZERO effacement and ZERO dialation the day...

Re: Wake him up or let him sleep??

Ditto to what others said. My pediatrician and my lactation consultant both say that three hours is fine, maybe four once a night (mainly so you can get some rest). After that point, wake them up. ...

What's your going home outfit for the baby?

Have you chosen one yet? We haven't. I do think we'll probably bring a couple of outfits since the weather in North Carolina is very unpredictable in the winter.
