Yep, DS has been drooling and gnawing his hands for 3-4 weeks now. Also clamping down on my boob regularly - OUCH!!! I can see where the teeth are growing up but they're not quite coming through yet. I think it's just the 2 bottom front ones. Carol
Re: keys, cell phones, and remotes, they aren't infant-safe (sharp points and buttons that can come off) plus they are filthy from daily handling. But my DD played w/them and I'm sure DS will, too! I tried giving the toy equivalents and DD was like, whatever, give me the real thing. And I often drink alcohol, about the same amt. that the other poster described. And feel the subsequent guilt. Though I have given it up for now b/c it's so bad for my depression. : ...

Wow, belittling someone for being exhausted - and human. If those who flamed you are so energetic,...

Quote: Originally Posted by Hollin I usually put my baby in the stroller for walks instead of wearing him. You know, I've tried slings, pouches, Baby Bjorn, and a mei tai, and you want to know something, THEY JUST AREN'T THAT GREAT to me. My back, neck and shoulders HURT when I wear baby for very long. We wore DS a lot more when he was first born, but he's 16 pounds now and it isn't that comfortable. I do often carry him around, and he...

DS is an "easy" baby so I find myself ignoring him way more than I ever did DD. I get pangs of guilt when I go do something, then later walk by him in the bouncy seat or on the play mat, and he smiles up at me with this humongous smile...like he's so delighted that I finally bothered to drop by. ...

Oliver's a full 3 months now and I can't believe it! I keep seeing people with newborns and marvelling at how tiny they are. Can't believe it's already over. Of course Ollie wasn't ever tiny, LOL! He's interacting a lot lately, "talking" to toys and examining the neckline of my shirt, etc. Not rolling over (though he did a couple times from front to back at 2 weeks old!) but has started laughing on occasion. DD can really get him going. A few days ago he was...
