because I woke up this morning to find my daughter sandwiched between my husband and myself, with her head smushed in my pillow. She seems none the worse for wear, but the reason she sleeps beside us is because we both still sleep with pilows, and I can't sleep without a blanket, so we wanted her close but not actually in bed with us, at least not until she's a little older. (she's six weeks old) Now my husband is freaked out too, and wants to set up her crib and start...
There is already a thread posted about this, which I have read, but I had a few other questions and didn't want to hijack that thread... My babe is 6 weeks old, and we've been feeding formula off an SNS the whole time. My milk didn't come in until sometime in the second week, after six days of Reglan. even then, its only a few drops on each side, after hand expressing... I was pumping after every feeding, as per my LC, but I can't collect any milk at all, only...
Do I remember correctly that there is someone in this ddc who has PCOS and had problems feeding their LO??? if so, what problems did you face? (if you don't mind me being nosey) Was it a supply issue? and what did you end up doing about it? I have PCOS, am 10 days PP, and have virtually no supply, even after being on meds for lactation, and eating oatmeal, and drinking that terrible tea, and pumping every two to three hours, and using the sns at the breast.... ...

My smush Violet was born on the 29th at 2:36 am... 7lbs 8oz, 20 inches. Not a single thing went the way it was supposed to. In a weak moment, I agreed to be induced on monday..... after every intervention known to man, beginning with a pitocin drip, she was born via c section.... the pitocin took 9 hours to start working, and when it finally did, it caused excruciating pain. My bp spiked, like I knew it would, and they wouldn't let me off my left side. Eventually...
martha stewart had a terriffic article about a year ago about making throw rugs from denim strips- not a braided rug, but the strips are sewn together in such a way that the white shaggy ends make a terrycloth like effect- really pretty cool.

Anyone else? i'm not worried, probably just fluid loss. but : anyways. I didn't have a set goal weight to gain, but I've only gained 25 pounds... bear in mindthat I was pretty heavy befor eI got...
I remember when.... The fertility doctor told me to come back and see him when I was ready to have babies and he'd "see what he could do" So, my boyfriend and I just had crazy sex whenever, fully confident in the fact that I couldn't get pregnant. The full Irish Breakfast we were served on our Honeymoon made me so nauseous, and I chalked it up to finding out what Black Pudding was really made of. I assumed that I was still jet lagged three weeks after we came home...
I meant to ask- does double strength RRL tea really help?
