thanks for the great ideas! i was browsing another forum when i noticed a strange smell.... it was gross..... but familiar...... yes, my dd is sprawled across my lap with her neck revealed! i've been wiping and wiping, but 2 days later it's back!
hmmm-- don't be too hard on yourself if you want to use sposies for a few days. i did, being a first time mama....we used some hand-me-down Tushies from a friend for about 3 days. we were only at the birth center for 4 hours after my dd was born, and the last thing either me or my dh wanted to do was rinse dipes (something we had NO previous experience with) when we got home. the meconium DID stain the outfit my ds wore home....cuz we didnt rinse it for 2...

right is way bigger---and makes much more milk. last night it took 20 minutes to pump a half ounce from my left breast, and 5 minutes to pump 2.5 ounces from the right! its like having one milky breast and one pacifier....and my baby loves them both!
