Re: Back to Work...

I've been putting off making a decision about work, too. Do I put DD1 in daycare so my mom can watch Laila? She can't handle both full time. Do I go down to part time? I discussed it with DH this...

Re: So now we must guess...

Not it! We've DTD twice without protection using the pull and pray method. Not terribly smart considering I never, ever, ever want to do this again. Luckily my period started yesterday so we're...

Re: PP check up

Re: Formula Feeders Check In

They say formula makes babies fuller longer. Pffft not from my experience. Laila cluster feeds formula lol. The max amount of time she goes between feedings is 3 hours and that's not even daily. ...

Re: One Month Well Checks

Laila was 6lbs 6oz and 19.75" at birth, at one month she was 8lbs 13oz, 21.5" so she's growing really well! Her pediatrician referred her to a pediatric neurologist for her tremors. We went on...

Re: Colic:/

Laila has settled down some, thankfully. Right now we're battling congestion and mucus so she's been fussy but not all that bad considering.

Re: Eye color...

They look brown.

They'll most likely be brown or brown-hazel.

It would be awesome if they magically became blue but there is no real chance for that.

Re: Formula Feeders Check In

Well I've officially started exclusively formula feeding. My supply was crap due to forgetting/not having time to pump and quite frankly it became a hassle. Trying not to feel like a total failure...

Re: You remembering to take care of yourself?

I take showers with DD1 if DD2 is sleeping. Sometimes that only happens every other day. I eat a quick snack in the morning and then something for dinner but usually while standing up holding...

Re: Out and about with baby...

I've only taken Laila out with the others once to the store. It went ok just a little extra prep work. The older kids helped out. I'm actually afraid to take the two littlest out alone. I've...

Re: how long are your babies awake?

Regardless of bedtime we're up at or about 8:30am. Laila will stay awake until around 11 then she'll sleep about an hour or so, longer if I'm holding her or sitting next to her while she sleeps on...

Re: Older siblings...

DD is doing the same with the pacis. She also stopped taking hers at 6 months. She wants to be a baby, too.

Re: Time to drink the water (Facebook)

With my old DDC, the FB group became cliquish, competitive, and critical which in turn became more dramatic. Many ppl quit the group. Sadly this was before the babies were even born. I felt very...

Re: sleep?

I thought I wasn't going to co-sleep with Laila but she had other plans. She'll sleep her first couple hours in her crib then the rest of the night she's in bed with DD1 and me. I sleep diagonally...

Re: Colic:/

Poor Lura. :( yeah it definitely sounds like she has some sort of issue with milk. :(

Re: Colic:/

I don't think Laila has an issue with dairy because she doesn't spit up very often at all and it's clearly because she's eaten too much or too fast. Actually the only time she's somewhat calm during...
