Re: One Month Well Checks

Sounds like Liliana is doing great!

Emeric is 11 lbs 3 oz as of a week ago, think he's more now. His hip dysplasia ultrasound was fine (is that standard in the US too?). No shots until next time.

Re: Eye color...

Still kind of steel gray.

50/50 on blue and brown (Daddy has blue, I have brown but my mom's were blue).

I hope they are blue. In very bright light they look like they have some blue color.

Re: Postpartum Bleeding (TMI)

I would definitely call. I had a catheter and had a couple of tiny streaks of normal red blood in the tube in the hospital, but definitely nothing since. The size of a nickel? Did that hurt pretty...

Re: Out and about with baby...

We've been out several times. Definitely try to do a walk at least every other day. We've been to the mall and out to eat a few times. I was nervous about BFing in public but haven't even gotten a...

Re: sleep?

Emeric sleeps in his crib in our room, and sleeps pretty well. He's only 3 weeks, but I think we have finally kicked our day/night reversal. Usually get to bed around 11, and then he wakes up twice...

Re: Ok C-section mommas.... please tell all!

Lurking from Dec, I had my C-section on Dec 14th and am just now getting back the feeling of needing to pee. Apparently it is very very easy to nick those nerves during the surgery, and almost always...

Re: Trips with baby?

Trips with baby?

When do you plan to take your first trip with the baby? Where will you go?

We are planning a trip for Valentine's Day, about a 7 hour train ride. Any BTDT have any tips?

Haha yea the "pain management" here is a joke. I was lucky enough to get some kind of opiate in an IV from when the spinal block faded until maybe 45 minutes later? They said to let them know when it...

Re: Swaddling

I swaddle at night with one of those Swaddleme blankets. I wrap it so his hands are free and near his face but arms are still in the blanket. In a few months I'll switch to a sleep sack.

Re: Baby Names...

Emeric Scott was named a couple of years before he was born. But, we didn't tell anyone the name in case it didn't fit him once he was here. I think it is perfect. Now I can't imagine him being...
