Oh, I think that's exactly it! A chinchilla! Thank you so much!
As in, what kind of animal is she? We can't figure it out! She has a long tail, so obviously not a hamster or whatnot, not long enough to be a ferret, can't be a cat in that tiny cage with the water bottle......so what is she?
Could be retained placenta, too. I had the exact same kind of thing, and that's what it was for me (no breastfeeding problems, either). Sounds like it might be separating a bit. Or it could be nothing. Better to mention it to your midwife or Dr, though, especially if it happens again.

All medical professionals involved told me it was, and I saw it myself----pinkish red hamburger meat with black parts and bright white stripes. They didn't D&C blood clots. Thanks for the replies----I guess it's just not something you hear a whole lot...
I'm 8 weeks PP, had a tough time with the placenta after delivery (wouldn't come, then when it did it was incomplete, midwife got the chunk that separated), but after that everything was fine. I've been breastfeeding well---definitely no oversupply issues, but no undersupply issues either (in the last week or two it's been feeling a little low, but baby seems fine and doesn't eat more frequently or anything). She's at totally average weight. During my whole 3rd...

I just don't get super early academics. And I can't stand the "good boy/girl" thing, it reminds...

It could be argued that we teach them to talk by talking to them.... Really? So you didn't hold them while they bore weight on their legs, then kept them from falling while they practiced balancing, then held their hands while they toddled around? You only talked to your baby, you...
Quote: Originally Posted by Critty My question is why on earth do you want your baby to read? There are so many creative, sensory things to do with babies than teaching them to read. It just sounds like another product to "push" kids ahead and to have something to brag about - more about the parents, KWIM? Babies, toddlers and preschoolers need to play and use their imagination. I am also not going to teach my baby how to do my taxes when that...

So therefore teaching your baby to read would likely have no long term...
I literally never touched DD's and hers fell off at 5 days. I just pretended it wasn't there, pretty much, and only looked maybe once a day. Otherwise I would have probably obsessed over it!
