Re: let's see smiley baby pics!

Sage smiles a lot, but I haven't got it on camera yet.

Dr. comment about my first baby not smiling yet: "You're just not funny enough for her."

Re: night time feedings- what do you do?

We co-sleep, so I just help her find my nipple and go right back to sleep. =) I only have to burp her if she fusses. If she wakes up and won't relax, I get up with her for an hour or so.

Re: Anyone's LO hate the car seat?

Sage is my 4th child, and like ALL of the rest, she hates her carseat. The motion of the car does nothing to sooth her, the music does not distract her. The only thing that helps is having someone...

Re: How much does your baby weight at 1 month?

Sage was born weighing 8lb 14oz. She had lost down to 8lb by 3 weeks. At one month, she is 9lb 2oz. So she gained a lb in about 10-12 days!

Re: baby acne help?

I don't put anything on it. It's just the hormones from the pregnancy/birth working their way out of baby's system. It takes a couple of weeks, but it goes away.

Sage Hated the sponge bath, but LOVES the shower. I never have time to do a bath, so I took her in the shower with me. I let the warm water spray on her back, and she actually smiled!
