Hi Ladies! Woke up to find our DDC closed. I got the last word in

Our old LWAB thread is here. Since it's the last day of January, I made the February thread. Let's have an awesome month!

Thanks so much for starting a new thread.

I feel like I'm cheating, posting on the Feb thread in Jan.

And Jenn, I must admit, I am as curious/nosey as you are. :

Hi guys! Happy almost February!

Nora is 16 lbs and 26 inches. She's 3 months and 4 weeks. I can't believe she'll be 4 months old in 2 days. Where has the time GONE?!?

Happy Birthday, Jaclyn! : I hope you have a great day!

Funny, I can still get to our DDC by my old bookmark in my browser. Nothing is "locked" yet, though I don't want to post there anymore. I feel like it's time to move on. I'm glad we had the warning and a few days to get used to the idea, and we all shifted gears and came over here.

I'm so sad reading about another woman battling a positive NBMS for galactosemia in BF'ing Challenges. If you haven't seen her thread, please head over and offer her support. It is so terrible to lose a bf'ing relationship so soon after giving birth, and to not know if you will get it back. Thanks, Jenn, for giving me the heads up about it.

Nora's napping in her swing so I think I'm going to try to grab a shower. I'll be back later! Have a great Saturday, everyone!

The threads in our DDC aren't locked yet, but it's not possible to reply or start a new thread anymore.

I'm glad you replied to that mom's thread. You've got a lot of lovin to give

I forgot to post that Hazel is 15 pounds 7 ounces as of Wednesday and she is 3 months, 1 week today.

That's exactly what our FB page is for.

Ladies, please keep it to Facebook and off MDC. As I said in the last thread, any questions or concerns need to be brought via PM, in keeping with the User Agreement.
post #12 of 331
Hi everyone! I couldn't keep up with January's thread either! I am going to try and post and read in Feb.
It has been nice getting to know many of you on FB.

I'm confused and want to respect what the oderator is asking... what do we have to keep on Facebook and off of here? Can we have a monthly thread? Confused.

Miles is about 16 pounds at 16 weeks.

Please keep the discussion about what was removed from the last thread to FB, if you need to discuss it.

And again, if you have questions or concerns, please PM ME and do not continue to discuss them on the thread, as it may result in your thread being removed. Thank you.

subbing! i have a teething monster on my hands so no time to type much!

Hi everyone! I came down with a mild case of mastitis last night. So, far my fever hasn't gotten past 100, so I am hoping to avoid the antibiotics. But this sucks, I feel like poo poo.
post #16 of 331
Oh no! Not mastitis! Feel better, sweetie. FWIW, I keep a bottle of poke root on hand for any soreness or feverish symptoms. It works so fast, and I will avoid abx until I'm done nursing. Thrush was too much for me to handle!
post #17 of 331
Where did you find it? I called one HFS and they told me that it was poison, and they doubted I could find it anywhere in NC,and that it should only be used with supervision...Ugh, I can look up how to use it, thanks. And I am sure that I could find it somewhere here.

Oh yeah, and we are still battling thrush, so I REALLY want to avoid antibiotics.
post #18 of 331
I had to order it! This is where I ordered from, I truly recommend this site. The owner even included a handwritten note about treating mastitis and other herbal tinctures they carry for nursing moms. I did express shipping which was definitely worth it.
post #19 of 331
ezra is 3mos 2days: weighs 13lbs10oz and is 24.5" long. but he has a super-long torso so we are in 6-9mos clothes. what size clothes are your babes wearing?

also, what does 'subbing' mean in a thread?
post #20 of 331
Hey mamas! Thanks for starting the new thread, Jenn! I'm posting from work and just had to get on to see what y'all have been up to today.

Jess So sorry you have mastitis, mama. I've had it 3x in my nursing career and know its not fun. Rest as much as you can and nurse that little man as much as he is willing. If there's anything you need I'd be happy to bring you whatever...seriously, if you want me to check WSM for poke root or call some local herbalists just LMK. Feel better!!

Iris had a wbv yesterday (strange cause I never did any well baby stuff with my other babes) and she's still a little peanut...only 10.27 lbs. She long though...25.5 inches. The FNP wasn't worried (I'm not either) b/c she's meeting all her developmental milestones, her output is good, and when this kid nurses milk literally spills out of her mouth. She's just petite like her mama. I was just so pissed that we were even having a conversation about her growth curve on the CDC charts.: I do love our provider though cause she was one of my clinical preceptors and doesn't hound us about non-vax'ing. Its just hard for me to believe that Iris is just now breaking 10 lbs and one of her big brothers was 10 lbs at birth!

Well, I better get back to work.
