PPCHAT Monday 6/15- sunday 6/21 - Page 7

post #121 of 124
real quick post before i am off to try to get some sleep..lo has a cold and has been fussier than usual this weekend. i am sick of being told i have a colicky baby and she is fussy. Well no Sh-t. I know that. But I also know my lo, and this cry is different and she has a fever. Finally he says maybe she has a cold, since you do, well, umm ok, that makes sense. I hate urgent care places. Anyway, at least I know it's not an infection that needs treated.

On feeding, I plan to let her try solids at 6 months and if she seems interested keep going, if not, let it go. She won't starve. She was 8 lb 13 oz yesterday!!! I don't know that I'll even give her cereal, unless mixed in other solids like someone else said. I'm not sure why I should feel like I have too? Also, I stop on road trips and BF. Even short ones usually. She doesn't really like the car seat and I only pump for her when I'm not around. Although she wouldn't eat yesterday and it had been like 6 hours, so I ended up giving her BM in a bottle, and she finally took an ounce. Whatever, I just wanted her hydrated. She seems to be feeling better today thank goodness, at least she's eating.

I'm interested to hear how you guys are tightening lower abs. I had a CS 15 years ago, and never got them tight...but I didn't really try either, I could have worked at it, but I just dieted and didn't exercise....

Gotta run...haven't had much sleep and need all I can get...

Yay KATE!!! I'm amazed at how fast I get responses on Diaperswappers..I'm trading a FB and HH for two pink BG today! Can't wait to get them. They are great for slings too, that's where I got my Kozy mei tai!

Nancy: Wow you are brave! We were supposed to go on a 6 hour trip July 4th but I backed out as LO won't take the binky in the car anymore-she makes a face like what in the world is this thing?- and screams when we travel 15 min!

Gave DD1 cereal at 4 months, recommended by ped. I didn't know any better, wasn't into the natural realm at that time. I will do the avacado probably at 6 mo if she shows interest. I better not give away my pump as I forgot about using EBM for food!

Didn't do much for father's day, it's hard when you have an infant in this heat! Over 90 yesterday felt more like 100. Ugh:

Lo sleeps sooo good swaddled but I'm having trouble with the halo sleep sack and swaddler. I leave the bottom unzipped for air circulation and she just wears a dipe, but the swaddle part always works upward covering her neck and almost her mouth. I'm not sure how to fix this??

Well, you could put some velcro on the baco of a onesie and only use the wings part. Didn't you say you have a kiddopotamus? that's what we're using right now. I want to invent a swaddler that is like wings attached to something like the diaper covers that come with little girl dresses...nice and cool for summer and no riding up!

Anyone ever heard anything bad about smartipants diapers? all the online reviews seemed favorable. They're a os pocket and you don't have to pull out the stuffing, b/c it's designed with flaps at front and back, so it comes out in the wash. It has snaps, not velcro and you can get 3 for $37, which is the same price as 2 bg 3.0. I'm thinking of getting some with my money from diaperswappers.

I got out some of the wool covers I bought the other day and lanolized them, only to realize they are too small for dd already...whoops. I guess i'll be selling those, too!
