  We pieced together this pirate costume with some things we found around the house, as well as a couple purchased items.  We needed something warm and comfortable because it was a chilly night!  Yo Ho Happy Halloween!
I've seen 3 lactation consultants to see why I'm in so much pain during BFing. My son is 3 weeks old. They've all said our latch is very good but that LO has very strong jaw muscles and essentially bites down when he is nursing, causing major abrasion on my areola. It lasts the entire feeding. Ouch. He also doesn't have a very wide gape very often. Every once in a while he opens wide and then it doesn't hurt me. They didn't know how they could help me with this but...

We are ordering our CDs and I'd like to know which you prefer and why. Also, where are your favorites sites to buy them (new or used)? Thanks!

I know it can be done but I just feel like I'm up against tough odds since back labor sounds even harder...

Hi ladies, I am in a sad state and couldn't sleep at all last night. I brought up the subject of my birth plan with my OB yesterday and she told me to keep it to myself. She has known all along that we've wanted an unmedicated birth and as few interventions as possible. We're taking Bradley classes and preparing ourselves in other ways too. Anyhow, it didn't go well and when she saw I was upset she questioned me about some of the things in my birth plan. An example I...
