drive in? for sure!
To a children's movie? Sure. To Harry Potter? No. I love going to the movies, and I rarely get out to see them since having children. I can't wait to see HP, and I'd resent it if a toddler disrupted it for me. Can you get a sitter? Or, if it's too expensive, can you maybe swap babysitting with another mama? You and the rest of the audience will enjoy the movie a lot more if you leave your little one at home.

Or the moms in the group can take turns supervising the kids. We're in a house church with lots of children. Once, when we were hosting at my house, there were 17 kids...
It definitely gets better. I suffered for at least 12 weeks with my first and the longer with my second. I even saw a lactation consultant with DD2 so I wouldn't have to suffer as long. I totally get you about not having your hands free. I'm large-breasted and long-waisted. When my DDs were newborn I used one hand to hold them and one to hold my breast off their noses. Once they got older, and their heads got larger I still needed one hand to hold them. Even with a boppy...
OP -- What did you decide to do?

Check your Costco again because I think they added new beans! The last two times I've been to Costco I...
What part of TX are you in. My girls are bigger, but I can give you some ideas for what to do if you're in or around Austin.

It's just considerate to let the people you live with know when you'll be home. DH is usually home from work by 5:45pm. If he leaves the office late he calls to let me know. That's just being considerate. Based only on what you describe in your post...

I've read of it being related to a tight anal sphincter, which sometimes goes along with things like tongue ties or reflux issues, like that, so structural issues, but somehow (and this part I don't really understand) some folks have seen help with homeopathy. For me, I'd try CST first. Interesting... my DD2 had a...
