I also give probiotics to my kids and myself daily. It seems to have made a huge difference over the past year, but it could be that they are 6 and 10 yrs old... I am also pretty psycho about hand washing. I do vax, but planning on doing dr sears delayed single shot sched. Plus, exercise and plenty of sleep! Possibly emergent c...
Welcome to the world Nicolina!!! Congrats Waylonsmomma!! What a relief for you!!! Under- I feel so empathetic for you, but I have no doubt you are a strong momma and you can make it through this!!!!! You WILL have a baby soon- there is no doubt about that! I agree with spring-- under and grateful-- you are in early labor!!!!!
Wow-- 2 amazing birh stories!!! Congratulations forumy and Amanda!!
Thanks everyone!    I had been using washcloths with water exclusively, but then this irritation appeared and so I was afraid the water wasn't cleansing enough...so I went back to wipes. I'm starting to think that the area that I was mainly concerned about is starting to look like the rest of his skin that is peeling.  Maybe it wasn't even a rash?  Anyway, it is almost gone now that I am changing his diaper with EVERY feeding at night.  Last night we woke every 1 1/2...
Thanks everyone!!  I always loved reading other people's birth stories while I was pregnant-- I was a reminder of the what all the awful pregnany symptoms were leading too!!  And, all the natural birth stories were so uplifting and encouraging.  So-- I wrote a LOOONG birth story too--  :)   Dannic-- twins??  LOL  I have thought several times what having twins would be like... so fun, but so exhausting!  So glad you like the name-- I think it's cute, but also fit for...
Dannic- I've thought of the food issues...but hoping that isn't it since he's not spitting up and is not fussy at all....trying all other options 1st. It's not a red ring ring. There were red dots and a small raised patchy thing. I did one session of diaper free time, but I'm afraid he's going to pee all over his umb cord stump... He poops a ton- every couple feeds....I need to change him every feed at night (yawn)... I'm using washcloths with water instead of...
Vegan-- My 1st impression is that she is intolerant to something that you're eating due to the fussing and spitting up.  But, that is becuase I have worked with infants and toddlers for years as a feeding/swallowing specialist (speech pathologist)....so I always jump to a solution instead of considering that it may be perfectly normal.  The cluster feeding constantly could be completely normal due to a growth spurt and a need to increase your milk supply, or it could be...
I think I'm a bad mommy and don't change diapers enough at night...so now the baby has an irritated area around his anus.  It doesn't appear to be painful at all, so not sure it's considered a rash...    I'm just wondering several things...   Are you guys changing diapers with every feeding all night long?  He had been getting up to nurse every 1 1/2 hours and I was too exhausted to change him every time.  And I hate waking DH up since he is doing everything...
Forumy--  my baby hardly nursed on day 2 and the hospital staff said that was totally normal. Maybe she doesn't want to nurse and is very vocal about it?  I would call your midwife, pediatrician, etc... if it continues, but I would guess it's completely normal.  Others mommas have had success with chiro visits- maybe that would help??  Are you putting lanolin on your nipples?  Maybe it doesn't agree with her?  BTW-- love the name...my oldest is Isaac too :)   Dannic-...
The Birth of Jack Andrew Jack is a week old today at 11:59 am…and I finally have found the time to write our story.  Saturday morning (39 weeks 1 day pregnant) at 4:45 am I woke up, and felt wetness like I had peed… (my water had broken but I wasn’t very familiar with the feeling b/c that had never happened with my older children until active labor). I went to the bathroom and on the way there a little more fluid leaked out and then as I sat down a steady stream...
