OK, I have a totally TMI question for anyone who had a water birth. What happens if you poop in the pool? Do you get out, drain the pool, refill and start over? Or do you just fish out the floater, or what? Is there any concern for infection from the baby getting a mouthful of labor tub water?

I would drop the Spanglish and use all Spanish, all the time. I know it is so stressful to hear that your kid is "behind" , but honestly a 35% delay doesn't sound that bad to me - not that I know anything about the subject, but it seems like it could be relatively normal range, esp given the language-mixing at home. I mean, he's 2. Einstein didn't talk until he was 4, right? Your sig says you live in Chicago, which suggests he'll sort out his English eventually no...
Quote: Originally Posted by Plummeting I have heard two different men say what I personally consider to be unpleasant things about their wives giving birth.

I agree, that is really concerning and I think you are right to have your guard up. The best thing you can do is approach this in an informed way. I don't know if I would jump to switch shrinks yet if you have previously been happy with this one though. It's always easier to work with someone who...

Telling me not to look it up, and telling me not to listen to anything anyone else tells me (which, I have a...

I think a lot of it has to do with the reasons for the low supply in the first place. If it's a baby-side problem then the next time around could be completely different. If it's a mama-side problem, then it depends on the problem. Eg if it is low thyroid or anemia and that's been fixed, then there's no...
Thanks for the input. Bumping because I'm curious to hear from more people. Also would like to know if anybody's noticed that anything they do in terms of diet, pumping/nursing schedule, or whatnot has changed the fat content of their milk.

I have mine in a little row and you can tell by looking what's been in there for 1 day versus 3. Same here. By the end of day 1 there's a layer of cream at the top but the rest of the milk still looks opaque and homogeneous. After 2 or 3 days in the fridge the bottom half of the bottle looks thin and...
