I have heard that the Ergo isn't great for odler babies because the back isn't very high. I saw several people with older babies in Ergos on our trip, and it seemed comfy, but I like my Boba a lot. SOmething I am finding about it though is that it gets more comfy with wear, so I think it probably will need some breaking in if you buy it new.

That's awful when they fall asleep all uncomfy like that. I've had some times where my kids fell asleep on my arm or something and I eventually had to wake them to move them to something more comfy.

Can I come? I mean I'm not bf'ing yet because I'm still pregnant. I've never been to that library but I hear it's huge inside.
post #124 of 296
I plan on going to the library some time next week, not sure when. My friend told me that there is a picture of me nursing my dd hanging up at the breastfeeding booth right now! So I HAVE to go see it Lol, not sure how they got it but I think it's cool.

Livia, it's available for EVERYONE! No need to be a nursing mom, it's not a big event, just a display in the common area (I think). Check it out http://breastfeedingcafe.wordpress.com/

Livia, I went last year and it was really cool. It's just a room and they have toys and people volunteering (like LCs, LLL leaders and the like) to answer any questions or just talk to you about breastfeeding. It's really about advocacy, so definitely go and show your support if you're interested.

Last year they had some really gorgeous professional breasfeeding photos on display. I wish I knew who the photographer was because I would love to have some done.

I am for sure going I LOVE the downtown library.

I want some done too! We had some really amazing newborn photos done for announcements and other things, but it didnt occur to me (crazy PP mindset) to ask her to do nursing photos, wish I would have now. I'm hoping we can afford to go back to her for 1 yr photos, and if we do I am def doing some nursing ones.

Our photographer was http://www.heatherbrownphotography.com/
Xavian has two photos in the newborn portfolio slideshow The second one in the group (black background, head and hands resting in his daddys hands) and the 2nd to last photo (in a little basket with a sheepskin, love his little newborn bum )

I just came here to post this! I'm so psyched for it. Which one did you guys RSVP for? I can't decide if I want indoor or outdoor pics.

And Brie, yours are beautiful. Was Claire pretty cooperative for them? I'm worried that the only thing the photographer will be able to get is photos of Jane whining and signing "more" for the camera. She just can't be bothered to nurse if there's cool stuff to see.

If we go, it'll be on the 4th. We have family coming into town the next day.

Oh, and I was surprised we got any of her nursing at all! Every time the camera made a sound, Claire popped off and looked at the photographer
post #131 of 296
Heh, I am wondering about this too! Xavian is a major busy-bee, and must see what each sound he hears is. Nursing is sometimes quite the test of patience!

I havent quite decided yet what day I'm going either!

Xavi doesnt even look like the same baby now He had a headfull of dark auburn curls until about 4 mo, then it mostly fell out and he was almost bald, then it started growing back in straight and blonde, so he was patchy for a while with some long auburn, and some short blonde, and now its all kind of a dark golden color, and starting to curl again. People think he is a girl ALL THE TIME lol. Even when he is wearing obviously (to me anyways) boy clothes. Just this week I have had 3 people say he was a pretty baby girl, and one lady say he was 'pretty enough to be a girl'. Boys cant be pretty I guess? Kinda funny, I just say Thanks!! and move on.

OH crap crap crap! I totally forgot that I am going out of town over the next LLL meeting.

Would it be okay to meet sometime next week for everyone to meet and try out my BW stuff? I really want to help you guys out (and finally meet!) so could we do a park date or something? I'm free for some time on Mon, Tue is open, Wed partly open.

But DO go to LLL, you two. It's about EBF and weaning on the 10th.

I'm out of town Aug 7-15.
post #133 of 296
Bummer! We will for sure need to plan something then, I'd really like to meet you too
post #134 of 296
I'm good Mon or Tue!
post #135 of 296
I'm probably going to go to the Breastfeeding Cafe tmrw (Sunday) and check it out, its much easier for me to go places on the weekend since DH and I are sorta sharing my vehicle right now! I'm excited!

I also RSVPd for the Wednesday/Murray Park photo sessions. I'll prob be there later in the day, around 6 or so.
post #136 of 296
I dont think I can make it to the LLL meeting now either

My husband has been remodeling our family room since we moved into this house a few months ago, but its been dragging along, and now he started a new job with longer hours, so we are hiring someone to just come and get it finished. So I have to be home while he's here working on the room this week.

I am excited to finally have this room finished, and not have a house full of dust and everything else that goes with remodeling anymore.

Oh, sorry, Xavismom. But at least it will be done and out of the way.

Xavismom, can you do Tue? I think I'm going to do the Thu BF cafe fundraiser, and I may not make it to the actual cafe until after we get home. I'll try this week, but I'm not sure I'll make it. We're pretty busy getting ready for our trip.

We're staying in a cabin on the beach on the Oregon coast .

Hey guys sorry I've been mia, we went camping to the uintahs this past weekend so no internet.

We'll probably go to the breastfeeding cafe tomorrow, or wednesday, today is laundry day since Landon absolutely loved playing in the dirt so much while camping lol.

Leah Tues is okay for us too,( btw thanks for doing this) which park did you want to meet and what time were you thinking? Basically anytime works for us. Landon only takes one nap in the middle of the day.

Brie those pics are sooo cute! Claire looks like a little doll! Are you still going to LLL this month? I can't wait, I'm so excited!

Xavismom I hope you get your remodeling done, we'll be remodeling here very soon too and I just know my son will have lots of fun with getting into everything . Anyway your son is sooo cute! Those are really cute pictures of him.

Okay, my good times are today at 2:30ish, or right now (10AM), or tomorrow at 9AM. What works for everyone? I suppose I could also go Friday, but we're going to be crazy trying to get out of the house for our trip.
post #140 of 296
I'm going to the Breastfeeding Cafe at the Library today in the afternoon, and am booked up the rest of the week. We're taking trax up, should be fun!
