Re: Extended maternity leave might pass in MN

Sigh. I love Minnesota, and especially Duluth. My husband is from Minneapolis. I went to graduate school there and then we lived in St. Paul for a while. If we ever move back to the midwest from...

Re: Co-sleeping?

Re: breastfeeding in public?

When my son was about 2 weeks old I had to go to a dinner with my boss and a group of clients (luckily, all women). I brought the baby and feeding him while we were there was definitely my biggest...

Re: Due in a week and need opinions/advice.

I will quote a wise midwife: "fat squishes." :-)

Re: Belly button pain?

Re: Where will baby sleep at first?

We will do the same--she'll sleep attached to me just like her brother did so I can nurse her and sleep at the same time! I'll also keep a swing in the bedroom and probably pop her in there...
