Re: HELP!! I'm about to give up!!!

I agree. If you've provided information that they are completely ignoring there is nothing more you can do. :( I'm sorry, it's so frustrating to watch.

Re: Have you started wrapping?

I've wrapped what I can of Den's family's gifts, they're done, just waiting on a few more things to arrive.

My family's and Kate's stuff I can't wrap because we're flying, so I have to wait until...

Re: Thoughts: Bringing opposite-gender child into a restroom

I'd be seriously upset if I was out somewhere with my child and someone told me I couldn't take my toddler with me to the bathroom. Now I'm a mom and if I had a son no one would look sideways if I...

Re: How do you nurse?

I hold her there and say "STOP LOOKING AROUND AND SMILING AT ME, EAT!!"

Usually she's pretty quick (you know, when she actually gets down to eating). Once in a while if she's sleepy she takes a...

Re: Hurricane Sandy Check In

Sorry I missed this.... We're way inland MA and we just got some wind, nothing bad at all. Our power went out for about 3 hours at night. Very thankful we stayed out of the path of this one! The poor...

Re: How do you stop?

I stopped nursing when I was pregnant and my supply had dived so it wasn't hard to distract her. I just kept offering her milk in a cup when she wanted to nurse, but I would nurse her if she was...

Re: Bf'ing remarks

People can be very misinformed. Every baby needs to be on either breastmilk or formula until at least 12 months of age, and I would tell her that. Does she think you should switch to formula? That...

Re: World Wide Web Wednesday

On average, how many hours a day are you on the web? Too many.

Aside from JM, what other websites do you frequent? Games? Facebook? News sites? Other? Facebook, another forum, some blogs.

Re: Booster or 5 point harness?

I'm happy to hear so many of these kiddos are still in 5 point harnesses! Also shocking to think that I would have a child old enough to contemplate that question....

Re: Car Seats?

Switched Ember at around 2.5 months. :) She's much happier in the convertable, it has more padding.

And just a note, feet touching the back of the seat is not a safety or comfort issue at all. :)...

Re: she won't stop BITING

If she's biting the bottle nipples too it could be teething pain, but the biting and laughing might just be a behavioral phase where she's just testing out what happens and thinks it's fun. :/ I hope...

Re: clicking

Yep, breaking the seal in order to take in air to deal with the faster flow. Both my two have done this. If you're not sore then it's fine, they just might be more gassy so make sure you burp well....

It is not clean. I haven't figured it out yet. Between Kate trashing the house every day with toys, the ever-piling dishes, the cats and dogs.... well. I'm pleased if I keep up with the dishes and...

Re: Suctioning

I'd talk to your doctor about what they routinely do.

Both of my daughters were placed directly on me while the cord was attached, they did some bulb suctioning right there on me. DD1 never left...

Re: Feeding Schedules?
