not juicing but I made this greens soup for lunch and drank it out of a mug with no spoon.  absolutely delicious.     http://www.publicradio.org/columns/splendid-table/recipes/basic_green_soup.html
this is totally just my experience and what was best for me.   after having breastfed 1 for 2.5 years and bottlefed my adopted dd simultaneously a mix of formula and pumped milk, i chose to breastfeed the twins (now 12 months).  i HATED dealing with formula and bottles.  Having to always have bottles ready and having to prepare so much ahead just to get out of the house was really difficult and stressful for me.     That being said, while the twins haven't had...
count me as another no epi....though i did not have a breech extraction as both babies were head down.   i did have some pit however (i was having major contractions for a week and walked around at 5 cm for a week before i decided that babies really needed out---labor was not deemed induced.)  what i wanted to add though was that after the first baby came out sunnyside up---hence then trouble triggering active labor to stick) i really did not feel pregnant at all...
i just want to say how much i know what you are feeling. my almost 9 month olds are horrible sleepers and it affects every minute of the day....doing any task is difficult on very little sleep. my guys start out the night in their own crib. in a fit of desperation we separated them about a month ago. when theywake up i move them into a full size bed with me. i sleep in the middle, the bed is up against the wall and one of the cribs is on the other side. i sleep...
have you tried asking her what she knows when she says it? i may be way over-simplifying your situation but that is what i would say next with my own kids. and if they didn't respond appropriately, i would leave too. this is such a great age for tantrums, isn't it?
i had an 8 hour labor with my first and it definately was painful for a few hours. that being said.....some coping methods work with some people...other methods work better with others. hypnobabies is not for me. i plain and simple recognize that. but neither did i dwell on the pain. it is what it is for me. it was much easier for me to just say...yeah...this hurts....but it means baby and i are working hard and there is an end in sight. i do sometimes wonder...
I haven't been on here in a long time but now that i have twins due in feb, i find myself having multitudes of questions running through my head. has anyone used the hygeia breast pump? if so, what do you think? i am thinking of renting one for a few months, as i am mainly hoping to only need it for supply building with the twins. i never needed more than a small hand pump with my son. but if we need one long term, i am really drawn to the recyclable nature of it,...
like the pp said, your kiddie would definately let you know if she was unhappy. i think it sounds like a fabulous evening!
i'd definately go for a mei tai or beco-type carrier if she wants to baby-wear more.
