post #41 of 455
Hm, all this talk of running is making me feel very guilty. I miss being in good shape. It is so hot here in the summer that the idea of doing anything outdoors is daunting. I think I'm going to jump into the couch 2 5 K approach- as it's been MUCH too long to jump back in anywhere near where I should be. I really have no excuses now as I'm a SAHM again... ok, SAH and WAH combo, but there's no pressure and I'm just doing projects I WANT to do now.

Ladymeag - thats a LOT of food!! Is that the same every day, or was that a 1-off? The average formula intake at this age is about 30 oz IIRC, and that should be decreased a bit by food intake. Unless that was a fluke (growth spurt), id probably discuss it with your ped (assuming they know anything about nutrition).

For us, A has settled pretty nicely into 1 nap. I read NCSS last week and we decided to move his bedtime back to 7 from 8, and lo and behold hes sleeping 12 hrs. Hes still up At least 4 times, but we'll work on that.

We have 8 teeth and dh said he saw #9 bulging, but i havent. I did feel a molar bulging last week, but this week its gone again. Weve been teething pretty constantly for months now, and i dont even want to know how many bottles of motrin weve gone through.

Our vacation really highlighted how out of shape i am. I did buy a swimsuit so i can start baby swimming classes At the Y w A, and had to ask the saleslady whether the suit actually fit, since all i could see was beached whale. I've committed to walking to the train station 3x/wk to meet DH (2mile round trip), and i want to check out the childcare situation at the Y, i may take another class or two. Its only a few blocks away, so extra walking.

We did just buy an annual pass to the childrens theme park around the corner, and i think i'm going to ask grandparents for a pass to the zoo, too.

Solids are a huge hit here. He still hasnt had grains and doesnt care for most meat, but loves liver and salmon. Hell eat just about any fruit, and will try any vegetable. I found the formula hes been on at a local HFS. They recently changed the ingredients to include corn syrup and this place had the old formulation. So i bought them out. So between the BM in the freezer and the 7 cases of formula, we should be good until At least 18 mos, when ill hopefully feel more comfortable switching him to milk.

I just lost my mothers helper (he got a ft job finally), so not sure what im gonna do for my personal time. I am contemplating going back to school, as is dh. I just have to decide on a career path.

Okay, the second half of this got longer than I planned - so I'm going to ask something up here:

How many of you get "personal time?" I keep seeing au pairs, mother's helpers, nannies and the like at playgroups for a local group I joined. Niall will be one this Sunday and he's never been out of our sight - ever. I haven't gone to the bathroom alone without my husband home in a year. I shower with a baby on the floor in the bathroom (because he's terrified of the shower/bath and I bathe him when my husband is home). I do housework with a little guy trailing me or worn. Don't get me started on "alone time" with my husband. Is the the norm and I'm seeing lots of privileged folks with help or I am the one that's on the fringe? There's no way that I could afford to hire someone to come in to watch Niall or help with the housework - we can't afford it. I'm home partially because we can't afford reasonable childcare on what I make in a year (not to mention that the childcare center hours here would make getting a job for me very... interesting. My husband's out too early and works too late to do the drop off or the pickup - so I'd have to do both within center hours, and then travel to a job and presumably work at least 8 hours and then travel back to the daycare center to pick him up.)

I need to exercise - it's becoming a serious health problem - and my neighborhood is not safe for us to walk alone (dogs/cars/poor sidewalks) and Niall does not allow me to do videos; he spends the whole time pulling on me, screaming, knocking things over and I can't afford a membership to a Y here ($75/month, don't have that sitting around) or other gym that has (questionable, staffed by teens) daycare. I certainly can't afford the $100 - $125/month for the mom-and-baby stuff I've seen. I had some luck walking with kismetbaby with our stroller, so I thought I'd attempt to repeat that adventure - drove somewhere safe to walk with the stroller, loaded him in clean, dry, recently fed, recently napped, appropriately dressed, with a toy tethered to the stroller. He screamed the ENTIRE time he was in the stroller. I don't know what I'm going to do about getting some exercise - I do know my doctor is getting kind of pushy about it. I think I'm going to tell him to hire me a nanny.

The best pediatrician I've found, so far, that takes our insurance, has been pushing me to switch him to diluted juice or cow's milk for about two months. He wanted formula intake around 24 ounces at the 9 month appointment.

That food listing for that day was a one-off (well, an occasional thing) because he all but stops eating, as I said in that post, right before some teeth come in and then the day after the erupt, he suddenly wants everything in sight. His average day looks more like yesterday: a banana and 1/8 a cup of multigrain os for breakfast, about two ounces of cheese and half a pear for lunch, about 2 tablespoons each of peas, summer squash, carrot and potato for dinner with a snack of about 1/8 cup of Annie's Cheddar Bunnies somewhere in there; somewhere between 32 and 40 ounces of formula.

We do offer him water regularly instead of the formula - he'll push it away if that's not what he wants. We provide as much fruit, vegetables, whole-milk organic cheeses, black and red beans and other finger food as he wants to eat - he usually gets a mix of these things (base ingredients from our meals without any butter, salt or cooking other than simple saute, baking or steaming) and is allowed to pick out what he wants and request more (before by banging on the tray, now with pointing or a sign and a "Mamama, NOM NOM NOM"). He's not very interested in meats. The push to limit his formula intake based on an average (for a kid that's not average size - he's tall, with a large head size and heavy but not for his height and not fat - he doesn't have rolls of fat or anything), switch him now to juice (empty calories), cow's milk (not age-appropriate) or only offer water while he's screaming about being hungry seems... counter-intuitive to me.

People who haven't seen him often don't believe me that he's not a Michelin-man-like stack of rolls and spare tires. Here's a picture of him from late August, eating some watermelon he "liberated" from another kid at a park playdate. The clothing he is wearing in this picture is Children's Place and Old Navy 18-24 month size; this clothing is too short (his belly sticks out the bottom a bit) now. http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-..._2995041_n.jpg

Sorry if I seem to have over-provided information - part of my thing is this: My parents schedule-fed me, then limited based on averages/"recommended intake"/calorie counts, refused me food/seconds so I "wouldn't get fat," kept all eating limited to meal-times only, had a "clear-your-plate" rule about all foods (not even just a two-bite rule) for me only (so, I wasn't allowed to over OR under eat, based on their menu and schedule) and I am the ONLY one of my parent's children that is fat. All four of my siblings were not limited in such a way - my older siblings because they grew up in a different home that didn't have these rules and my younger siblings because they were demand-fed for a variety of reasons including "boys don't get fat like girls." I have health conditions that doctors have attributed to being underfed as a child, I have metabolic problems, I'm shorter than the rest of my family by a foot or more, I have severe security issues around food (related to this and homelessness as a teen) - it just doesn't seem like coincidence to me. If you're interested, I can point you to some resources online about family feeding dynamics, nutritionist information, information from counselors and psychologists on the "food battle" and how it affects children/teens/adults and other things.
post #44 of 455
Hi mamas!

Noam is just bursting with language lately. . .although its all sign for him. He does now say "mama", but its usually "mamammaamaamama" when I am trying to do something else like wash dishes (god forbid!). Still its the cutest thing. He has really gravitated towards signing though and I'm so glad that I have been using it with him. Just this weekend he signed 4 words that he had never signed before!

He's still flopping between one and two naps. The only predictable thing I have been able to see is that he will get about the same amount of sleep in a 24 hour period. So if he goes to bed late or wakes up early then he'll likely have two naps. But yes, its very frustrating and makes getting anything done hard.

He's just a ball of energy these days. Happy as can be, but wants to be going, going, going. We go to a park almost everyday so he can burn off some energy. And he loves it--he can climb to the top of the play structures and then wants me to go down the slide with him.

Food, he seems to be on and off. He still nurses a lot (and yes, still about every 3 hours at night too). I'd say he gets at least 75% of his calories from BM still. And he'l have days or weeks where he doesn't want anything I offer and then other days where he eats a ton (relatively speaking). He's pretty picky about food in general and he doesn't like sitting in the high chair. I find he eats best if we eat picnic style and he if he gets to eat exactly what I'm eating.

We're having so much fun lately. . .most of the time I don't even miss not having any me time or any non-kid grown-up time. Sometimes though. .. .

Ladymeg--I wonder if Niall isn't getting enough protein and that's why he still wants so much formula? Seems like he eats a lot of fruit and not as much beans/meats. He really seems healthy though; big, but not "fat" (and I've been around him IRL). I definitely don't believe in restricting or forcing food on babies or children. I really think they know when they are hungy and when they are full and I think that they can tend to eat a lot one day and not much the next and this is normal.
post #45 of 455
Lack of protien may be the cause - anyone got some good non-soy suggestions on protien sources? He'll eat a few beans at a sitting, meat is less predictable - he often won't eat it at all, even if he has eaten that type of meat before. He does eat a lot of fruit and vegetables - seems to be what he picks out the most of what I put in front of him.

i didn't see your original post but not only does that not seem like an outrageous amount of food (i don't know about the formula) but as far as i know in my un-expert opinion, babes will regulate themselves so i just feed until she's done.
i agree that maybe more protein is in order....i also noticed that you mentioned that you specifically give him foods without butter etc...but babies really need alot of fats too. i make a big effort to always think about adding proteins and fats. if he's having beans, coat them in olive oil and some seasonings if he likes. heat stuff up in butter or olive oil. i'll even make a balsamic vinaigrette (again...the olive oil...) to coat strawberries or blueberries with to get that extra kick. coconut milk is great. avocadoes but dd hates em.
we do eggs, dd loves ground beef in any format but she's a meat lover. i wouldn't touch the soy either but what about seitan or those other fake meats out there?
anyway....if it helps, ada can shovel down some food. literally i've given her what ended up being adult sized portions of dishes. she ate 1.5 ears or corn one night in addition to the hamburger and when she poo'ed at daycare i had her teachers yelling at me for 2 days. but she's also only in the 25th percentile for weight so really i don't see how there could be a correlation between meal size and fatty babies (not like fatty babies are necessarily unhealthy anyway.)
post #47 of 455
oh and p.s. i actually started working just to get personal time, if that makes any sense. that's how little "me" time i was getting.
but my state provides daycare assistance which pays for her (to be at the same school i work at so it's a win-win)...otherwise it wouldn;t make any financial sense. infant/toddler care is only slightly less that what i would make.
post #48 of 455
what do you put your guys in to sleep?
Rowan has been sleeping in tshirt and shorts/jammie pants all summer. We have AC so our house is regulated throughout the year... but I know I sleep with more blankets as it gets colder (why is that, btw? You'd think thermostat meant.... Same Temp all year long). It's not necessarily Cold here yet, but definitely cooler.
Tonight is his first night in long sleeve jammies with feet. He's been up ALL night - when I finish typing, it'll be my 4th time going in, in 4hrs. I already gave him some pseudo-tylenol for the second top tooth he's cutting. And he's had an extra bottle, and had a diaper change. He wasn't HOT nor sweaty. But... something is amiss.

He's always actually slept with blankets. Every time I go get him, he's under the blankets, and certainly when he sleeps with us.

Maybe he's not liking the full-body jammies?
post #49 of 455
We don't bother going out to nice places- lol. We will sometimes order take-away and go to the park with it as that works MUCH better.
post #50 of 455
tzs: Thanks. The butter, specifically, has been advised against as he gets formula that's high in fat, loves avocados, eats plenty of cheese. He's still very much in an "I must feed myself" place - so coating foods with something slippery, while probably funny, would frustrate him to no end.

JordanKX: I put a zip-up hoodie on Niall for the first time since last winter two days ago. He screamed and pulled at it and arched his back. You'd think I put a suit of nails on him. I don't know how I'm going to handle getting him to wear a sweater (it's never cold enough here for a coat.) Then again, his dad wears shorts year-round - even when we lived in Seattle and it was in the 20s for weeks two years ago. I've seen my husband wear a coat ONCE - when the temperatures were in the single-digits AND the power went out.

Niall figured out what his (very new) top teeth are for! He's shredding everything in sight. It reminds me of having a puppy. He wants to chew on my shoes, our hats, cardboard, paper. Chew, chew, chew.

I'm ready for him to be walking. He can stand up on his own - but doesn't particularly seem interested in doing so. He'll now walk with me if I hold his hand (just the one!) but only for about ten steps and then he decides that he must crawl. His birthday is this Sunday but we're going to see Grandma (a three hour drive from here) the next weekend. My husband says he'll probably start walking there just to show off. :P

Someone must have hacked my account- that reply above is not me posting! Who posted that!?
post #52 of 455
Ladymeag - i wasnt trying to be insulting or insinuate anything, which is why i asked if that was a normal amt of food. All i have to go by is my little, who kismet dubbed godzilla. I get the same responses - hes been 20 lbs since maybe 9 mos and everyone assumes hes a chub, but in fact if it werent for CDs, his pants wouldnt stay up. And ATM he is wearing a pair of woolies i had made for him at 3 mos. Theyre shorts now, but they still fit in the waist.

Sounds like you need a new ped. Have you asked in FYT about peds abit further out? Not that we actually do WBV, but our ped group is supposedly great about this kind of thing. My prob is i have to pay out of pocket to see them. They have several offices, but i think the furthest s one is pleasanton, which is still a bit far for you.

Anyway, A will have a day of eating like you said above, but its a one-off and then the next day hes back down to a "regular day" amt. I was just thinking if that was an everyday amt, my first thought was metabolic disorder.

As for the mothers helper/finances question, i SAH, but cant get a whole lot done, so DH budgeted to let me hire help a few hrs a week just so i dont go nutso. Im never further than the next room, and sometimes in the same room if he comes looking for me. But the MH's job is to keep him entertained and prevent him from climbing on me while im trying to get something done (usually something involving sharp instruments or hot liquids). He was just a neighbor who really likes kids who was out of work and we knew they were struggling, so this was our way of helping out. Now that hes gotten a job, dunno what were gonna do. As much as DH would like me to go back to work, a single phone call to find out how much FT childcare in his office building costs quashed that.

I do know that weve formed a playgroup of MDC mamas here and yesterday i was discussing w one of the other moms the pissibility of a sitting swap. Ive also had another MDCer watch him once. But, i think my situation is a little different. We have relationships w dozens of moms because of milk donations, and there are several of them that i would trust to watch him - after all i trust them to feed him. Ive really had to come out of my shell and reach out to other moms because of it, so ive formed more relationships in the last year than i did in the 8 previous. In fact, I'd let kismet nurse him if i thought he wouldnt bite her.
post #53 of 455
Hi Cristeen! Just read your post above and felt like saying hi. Sorry we aren't just a little closer. . .N still doesn't do well in the car past about 20min. Ladymeg and I have been getting together around here though if you ever want to join in. There's a nice park walking distance from my house.

I'm donating a tiny bit of milk now to a local newborn, but I just don't have the extra supply I used to. Not sure what N would think if I were to nurse another at this point--he is very possessive of his nursies! So A might be the one getting bit in that scenario

I too have made a lot more connections as a mom. N really helped pull me out of my shell. . .or maybe just gave me something to instantly have in common with other women. I have met a lot of great AP moms in the past year, and of course am so glad I kept in touch with everyone from our DDC and now even know some of you IRL.

Hi mamas! What the heck are we doing over here? I'm so not ready...but I guess my baby is...Zoe will be 1 a week from today and she's been walking since August 27th, just 6 days after she turned 11 months. My DS didn't walk til he was 12.5 months so I was totally surprised! She has 6 teeth now (also different from my DS, who had NO teeth yet when he turned 1!) She says "Bye-bye" and waves Hi and Bye, says mama and dada, and today picked up a ball and said, "ball-ball!" so cute! She will toddle over to me and lay her head down on my chest and give me a big hug, and if you tell her "Can I have a hug?" she'll do it again. She is so adorable, I love this stage. I'm super excited for her party on Saturday. She can't have birthday cake because she is allergic to eggs and I don't want to give her grains yet due to what her allergy is (FPIES if anyone is interested, and I don't know if eggs are the only thing she reacts to and don't want to find out by having to rush her to the ER in shock during her birthday party!) so I got her this adorable crocheted stuffed cupcake to give her for her birthday "cake" and I"m going to make her a sort of ice cream cake for her to eat from frozen bananas with other fruit on top. I also made a scrapbook photobook for her from Shutterfly documenting her 1st year, and it came out really nice.

I will try to be on this thread more often! Now to go back and read what everyone else is up to!

The Y here anyway says that they don't turn anyone away due to inability to pay. You have to go in and talk to someone, but you may get a reduced rate or a free membership. But they make a point of saying that no one should be turned away because they can't afford a membership. So look into that.

I was just thinking about posting about the scholarships at the Y. We have one that makes our membership completely do-able. And we get a pretty hefty discount on all classes (including swimming lessons).

ha ha ha!
ada only feeds herself and she does ok with oils but now i am totally congering up a super slippery food-fest image in my head. actually....now come to think of it bananas used to be a terrible issue in the beginning. squishy and slippery...i'd have to coat them in cheerio crumbs to give her some traction.

Birthday Peach

Rowan turned one this past weekend. Ah.... time... whoosh

It was a GREAT day! Super fun.

And the best idea... his grandmother gave him a birthday-peach. Low sugar whipped cream, homemade, on top of a peach she'd gotten that morning from the growers market. the most luscious juicy peach!
The perfect size for lil hands to grab... he just kinda nursed on it for a while, til the skin broke... and then he went berserk and ate the entire thing within minutes.
Of course, this is Rowan who'll eat Anything, and faster than you can possibly get it away from him.

But still... what a Great idea! Had to share :-)
post #59 of 455
cristeen: I understand - it's kind of a difficult issue to keep boundaries around. Lots and lots of well-meaning people will tell parents that thier kids eat too much, should eat on a schedule, should eat this-that-or-the-other-thing, should wait or not wait until a certain age for certain foods. I've got lots of information surrounding family feeding (and nutrition in general) and would be happy to share, if you're interested. I didn't take it as an insult but I did want you to understand that I'm not just casually feeding him whatever and that lots of research and thought has gone into how and why he eats.

For the folks suggesting the Y - the ones I've talked to here (that we live "in area" for) say that we're over the income cap for the scholarship memberships or even reduced rates. I do appreciate the suggestion, though!

The birthday peach sounds neat! Niall loves the peaches we get in our CSA box (he wasn't keen on the ones I'd previously bought from the store.)

Anyone got a kid with a tomato/nightshade allergy? My bd has an eggplant allergy and we've noticed tiny rash-like bumps, trouble sleeping and poop issues everytime Niall has tomatoes. Rivka's eggplant allergy is more clear-cut - she gets large blisters in her mouth. I plan on asking about it at his well-baby on Monday but any info would be appreciated.

It's RACE DAY!!!! The Air Force Marathon starting gun will fire in three hours!! I'm sitting here pumping, but my boobs are nervous, LOL, they're not giving up any milk!

I was much more prepared two years ago when I last ran this race. In fact, it was all that training that got me pregnant in the first place I looked gooooood!

Anyway, here's hoping I can walk tomorrow!
