a garlic vaginal suppository should be fine during pregnancy. it is what is recommened prior to GBS testing. what i was advised for that was 7 days of garlic followed by 7 days of probiotic (both vaginal suppository). the garlic will kill off everything and the probiotic will replenish the good bacteria. i used both in the form of capsules. how painful! i hope you get rid of it once and for good!
here are some links i bookmarked while doing research on the subject.... http://www.unhinderedliving.com/bstrep.html http://www.gentlebirth.org/archives/gbsAlt.html http://www.gentlebirth.org/archives/gbs.html i think it is easier to do garlic capsules, that way nothing has to be removed. i was told it was important to get some that are not 'odorless'. i was advised to do 7 days of garlic vaginal suppository followed by 7 days of acidopholis vaginal suppository. ...
I have had rubella, mumps and chicken pox. ds has had chicken pox. all were really quite easy to get over.
can you temporarily sleep in her room for a while? rethinking that, it might not be any better since you would still have to get out of bed to get her out of the crib to nurse her, but at least you wouldnt' have to go as far. and your son wouldn't be keeping you awake once you did return to bed. another thought would be to put a regular mattress on the floor for you and her crib mattress on the floor for her. since she would be sleeping on the same surface she is used...
: interested to what everyone does too. my dh works rotating shift work - out of a 5 week schedule he does 3 weeks day (7a-3p), 1 week swings (3p-11p) and 1 week nights (11p-7a). so far with just one dc, swings are the hardest. we will see how things go in a few weeks when dc#2 arrives!
i guess it depends on the pillowtop, but both our pillowtops have been fine for ds. i have never worried. he doesn't look 'sunkun in' to the mattress.
my ds is 23 months and nurses to sleep. because i am pg and it has been painful to nurse him so we take a car ride everyday to get him to sleep for nap. but bedtime he does nurse. i have been able to put some limits on the length, then we cuddle until he falls asleep, but that has only been happening in the last month or two. i have tried on ocassion to find other ways to put ds to sleep or to sooth him back to sleep at a waking without success. he was always too...
my first reaction would be to call my dh increadibly childish for acting that way and putting this whole scenario on your shoulders. my sensible side would be to try to compromise with him. where has your ds slept prior to this past week? why has that changed? i love to cosleep, so i would try to find some way to keep that arrangement. can you get a seperate sleeping space for ds in your room? or can you partially cosleep (dh the until the first waking - assuming...

I dont think it is unreasonable to ask the parents to not do something that you believe strongly in. As an example, I normally will drink caffiene on occasion even while pregnant. My IP's (thats Itended Parents) asked me to avoid all caffiene while I was pregnant. They also wanted me to listen to...
I don't think i would find it necessary to use a bedrail with my toddler if the mattress were on the floor. i did however use one when he was a lot younger (and just the mattress on the floor). i used this one: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...entPage=family
