For EC we did get a potty online, the book we are reading recommended this one:http://www.amazon.com/BabyBj%C3%B6rn...d_bxgy_b_img_b
Btw, what's a wool soaker? And as far as your BFing situation, I've heard stuff like that too, it's like where do they come up with this stuff - do you ever read any books people?!
My family doesn't agree with how we do things either and I've told them I have several books I can recommend that explain why we do what we do but they just don't want to take the time to understand us. So really there's nothing more I can do but just do what I think is right and just let all the comments roll off me.Sally
That's not good that you're more of a worrier this time - I already worry a lot and I want to have like 4 or 5, I hope it doesn't get worse with each one or else I'm in troubleaerobrandi
I had a very difficult birth as well with some scary moments, my MW told me though to have just one of the things that happened to me is a rarity but to have all of them again is near impossible. She reassured me that the next time would be different and I believe her. My Mom was in labor with me for 48 hours and then with my sister she went into labor in the morning and had her by dinnertime. With DS I was in labor 36 hours (I personally believe the HB cut down the hours of my labor) so I really think the next one will be shorter.Lauren
I can't believe your LO crawled!! That's amazing! I am right there with you with the nursing every 1-2 hours at night, most of the time he has a 3 hour block mixed in there but not always. It stinks b/c it can be so different, one night he wakes every 1-2 hours to eat another night he sleeps 5 hours right off the bat and I wake myself up wondering if he's alright
So I had an out-of-town friend come over last night, who is still single and no where near having a baby and I think I talked her ear off about Luke, LOL. I've been so busy I haven't had much time to talk to anyone so it all just came out and unfortunately for her she was the nearest target.
Oh well ,she was a good sport about it and can I help it that DS is just so cute and fun to talk about?! He has officially found his thumb as well!
And it is SO cute! I pretty much did it out of the womb my Mom says until the age of 5 when she bribed me to stop, I got a kitten out of the deal!
Hopefully we won't have to do that for DS but I wouldn't mind getting a dog eitherSo as far as changing posts for April I'm going to change it to April Showers for Nov. '09 Babes with a raining icon. I'll try to keep a different icon each month so our forum isn't hard to spot. So find the continuation over at that new page!
