My MW did this with her last baby, and she said that you can wet the cord and reshape it close to the baby so you can move...
I just posted my experience thus far in this thread: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...1#post15485867
Hi -- I just had my little guy (UC waterbirth!) and we're doing a lotus birth. I didn't read about the rosemary until yesterday and we're already at Day 11. Here are a few things I've discovered in this journey: We didn't opt for salt at all and I'm glad: apparently it can absorb more humidity and create a situation where rotting occurs instead of desiccation. We opted for a blend of various spices and herbs that have antibacterial, antiseptic, and astringent...
: I'm planning my second pregnancy this coming August and I'm scared out of my mind about having to transfer with this one as well. It's almost crippling at times, this fear. But there's really nothing I can do about it except explore it, poke at it and see what it can tell me. also, hi fyrebloom! congrats on your newest bun

My son is testing boundaries with us now. When he's at his highchair, he drops food and books onto the floor. We tell him that food is for eating, not throwing. That you need to be respectful of your food and not throw it on the floor. That when you are all done with food, you keep it on the table or you give it to Mama/Dada. That food belongs on the table or in your mouth. We tell him not to throw books on the floor. We say, firmly, No, that's not how you treat books....

That's EXACTLY what I'm going through now and my son's 13 months old. Just...
I'll take a look at the Phil&Ted's. That sounds promising! I don't care what it folds up to, I want the unfolded stroller to be as compact as possible because everyday travel for me usually DOES require buses, subways, or streetcars. The umbrella stroller just isn't working for me now, and it'll be hideous once the snows come, not to mention any sort of inclement weather. It's about as basic as you can get.
It's been awhile since I've been on MDC and am noticing a few forum changes, so I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place. I'm looking to see if anyone knows of a jogging-type stroller (must have big wheels) that is also super compact. Like an umbrella stroller-jogging stroller hybrid. Does such a thing exist or am I dreaming? I need something easily maneuverable in snow but compact enough to take on buses, streetcars, and subways and not take up three...
So.... how many wet/soiled diapers were you two going through each day/night before switching to training pants?
