This sounds exactly like my husband. He's struggling with our very noisy and vocal toddler, and really he's struggled with her volume since she was a newborn. She's always been an exceptionally scream-y baby. ;) I'm glad to read some of these suggestions for him because so far we haven't come up with good solutions to keep him from getting overwhelmed.  
Thanks for the responses--reading from my phone this evening so I can't quote easily, but I just wanted to say I don't think he's had any kind of liver testing done in the past. It's been years since he had a blood test to my knowledge. I'm thinking I'll push him to see a GP for a physical and bring this up with the doc, who might be able to order testing or at least refer him to a specialist. I'm worried that this could be a symptom of something else. He's only 26 years...
Thanks, I will do a search! Do all alcoholic beverages contain sulfites? For some reason I thought that was just a wine thing...
My dh has been having strong physical reactions to alcohol for the last couple of years. Until recently, it's been hard to pin down the cause. After one or two drinks, he'll feel fine until the middle of the night or morning and then have a terrible headache, diarrhea, and feel nauseous, sometimes for the entire next day. We thought at first maybe it was from beer, which led us to consider gluten as the culprit. We recently went gluten free, but then a couple of nights...
We may be planning a nurse-in in the near future. I will report back to let everyone know.
Hi, sorry, I know not everyone's on Facebook...Brookfield Zoo has issued an apology to the author of the original article. She writes about it here: http://www.triblocal.com/detail.html?sub_id=210933 However, I spoke with someone in upper management of the foods department this morning and he told me that he knew of no policies or training regarding nursing mothers. Plus, both he and another person in upper management (who was reached by another mama) made comments...
We have created a Facebook group to spread information about this--please join us! The group is titled "Brookfield Zoo Nursing Protest." (Mods--hope it's ok to post this.)
I packed the My Brest Friend away at about 10 weeks. The Boppy is still out but it has never seen much action. As soon as DD got good head control, I started experimenting with cradle positions for feedings (we had always used cross cradle until that point). I guess I just like the freedom of not using the pillow. We can snuggle in whatever position seems comfy at the time.
Yep, totally normal, and I'm not a vegetarian but have been craving the same foods as you since day 1! I eat oatmeal with fruit every single day. Haven't gotten tired of it after 3 months. I definitely eat more now than I did during pregnancy. Thankfully my metabolism has been keeping up with my appetite.
My DD doesn't like the car, although it's gotten a lot better. Her birth was not in the least bit "traumatic" (easy natural water birth in a room with low lights and absolutely zero intervention). I'm inclined to think it's the carSEAT she doesn't like more than anything. That and not being able to see Mama. For awhile I would have to nurse her, change her, and then spend 1/2 hour or more rocking her to a deep sleep before I could even think about putting her in the...
