Thank you!!! Somersault-y vibes for all of us!!  I think I might try the chiropractor thing- I found one here in my (very small) town that is certified in the Webster technique.  Sounds like it couldn't hurt!!
My baby is breech at this point (30weeks and change) and it makes me anxious :)  I've been reading the spinning babies site and doing the 30 second inversion once a day, but so far she's still kicking me in the cervix   I know I don't need to be worried yet.  But: Beyond what I "know" about c-sections (riskier, not as good for mom/baby, etc, etc), I have this deep, primal fear of being cut open.  Like, it terrifies me.   I'm trying not to worry at this point,...
Etsy is a great idea!  I also found these at Walmart :  http://www.walmart.com/ip/FAST-TRACK-Dream-Cafe-Maternity-Print-Nursing-Sleep-Gown/22834277
I like the idea of an inexpensive skirt and a comfy nursing top!  No plans for an epidural here ;)       Cute stuff!!  A bit spendier than I was looking for but I like the idea of a skirt and comfy top.  Some moms probably don't care either way, but last time I felt like changing into the hospital gown somehow affected my feeling of being powerful in my own body.  Or something.  Its difficult to articulate!  But I just feel like I might stay more "myself" if I have my own...
BabySmurf, I LOVE the idea of a "Big Brother Kit"!  I've been wondering what to do for our 5 year old who is SO EXCITED to have a baby sister.  I like your idea of a "helper" kit...maybe I will get him a changing pad and wipes that are "his", maybe a burp cloth, a special blanket, a wooden rattle that is for him only to give to the baby...any other ideas, mommas?    Otherwise, my to-do list is coming along due to some nice nesting impulses!  I've washed all our baby...
Greetings!   EDD: 6/16/2013 Your Age: 35 Your General Location: Wyoming This babe will be child #?: 2! How long have you been TTC: I have a 5 year old boy and got an IUD right after he was born.  In September of 2012, I got the IUD out and had a positive pregnancy test about 4 weeks later..so, not long! Tell us a bit about your family (partner, other children, and/or pets): I'm a peer breastfeeding counselor, full-time HR specialist and long distance runner...
I think you guys are totally right in that AP'ing or not probably does not have anything to do with it. Her son does exhibit some other behaviour patterns like Dr.Sears' description but I'm not sure they are related to the seperation anxiety. And I am not the best person to give advice since my kid is so easy (by luck, I'm sure!)
Hi all! I'm sure this is a common problem and I wanted to get some experienced input: My friend has a 2 year old who attends the same daycare center that my son (18 months) goes to. My son is fine every morning : we have a little ritual where we hang up his coat, have a big hug, I say the same words every day (Bye-bye, honey. I love you! Have a good day!) and then he runs out to join the play. (ETA: I'm sure a lot of this is just his temperament and not because of...
Hi all- My little guy is 2 weeks away from his first birthday and I really want to pump wean during the day. I want to continue to nurse him in the mornings and evenings and hopefully on weekends as long as we are both into it but the pumping at work is seriously impacting my job and I am just sick of it So 2 questions: 1. Has anyone out there pump weaned? How did you do it and would you do anything differently if you had a re-do? and 2. After I pump wean, DS...
In the office supply closet at my work. Cozy.
