Where are the Sept '10 babies? - Page 12

post #221 of 658

if you cant find the lump are you sure its a plugged duct and not the start of mastitis? I never get lumps with mine but it hurts in one general area of the boob and within a day starts turning red and my fever skyrockets.

Totally not sure, but I'm hoping for the best lol!  I never got mastitis with Reya either.

Ellie's first food was avocado.  She loved it!  Until she got a taste of sweet potato...man, does she love her sweet potato!

 

I get plugged ducts all.the.time.  In fact, I have to take lecithin daily in order to avoid them  I don't always feel the plug...sometimes just a section of my boob starts to hurt and then it gets very firm and tender.  If you have one of those massaging shower heads, those work great.  I put it on as hot as I can take it, focus the shower head on the area for a few minutes, then compress like crazy in the direction of my nipple.  I used to try to be all gentle in trying to get them out, but after too many plugged ducts to count, I just decided to get tough.

 

I hope it gets better for you soon (remember to drink lots of liquids!) and I hope it's not mastitis!

Oh, and I forgot...we have teeth!  Ellie cut her bottom two front teeth on Friday!

post #225 of 658

wow two at once! you are so lucky! I end up going through them seperately, prolonging the amount of time I'm in "OMG MOMMY MAKE IT STOP HURTING" mode. Still no teeth here yet... I dont remember when the big two got their first teeth.

That's what happened with mine....

Avocado Day was a huge success! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-7geKe4Ozo 

 

Today she tried peas..

I think the pictures speak for themselves! She's becoming very very good at scooting backwards.  Still trying to master forward motion though! She gets super cranky if she's not put down for naps IN HER (our) BED.  And she means it!

Big kids were eating homemade pickles. Mae was getting mad wanting one so I let her gnaw on one for a little bit. It took about 2 minutes to get the pickle face (she REALLY likes them!) but finally got a little one!

We aren't doing solids yet.. so if any one else is lonely be comforted -solids haven't hit our house yet! My older ones licked their first braeburn apples, whole apple I bit to start, at 11mo... they all ate just fine, so no rush!! (plus HATED the 'real' poop!wash.gif) ... Right now we have a tummy thing... never knew he ate Sooooo much at a sitting till I just watched it allll come up.. on ME!! But he is happy and bouncy, just projectiled like 6 times since afternoon... guess the tummy aches the bigger kids had were something after all... bummer.

 

We scoot backwards too!! Crawl stance, reverse! ..Wish I could get a pic up.... the page freezes when I try..

You are not kidding about the food poop.  Sooo gross!  I really thought we'd wait longer, but she is obsessed with food, and has been for a while.  She started tracking food before 3mo, she sits really well, and when she watches me eat she opens her mouth with every bite and chews lol! Hilarious :)

 

I hope your house is feeling better soon!

I'm sitting here kinda waiting to see if anything comes up.... he just nursed, but I guess the bed is the test... if the odds of messing the bed don't get us, well then maybe we are done!

 

hated 'real poo'!! swore I'd just wait till potty trained! (smirk) ..DS2 trained at 31/2 yrs... nursed till 5 tho! (as did others) honestly must have just not noticed if they were watching me eat! we did chunks of food and lots of momma bird - Worked great, no mess!

Hannah is almost 7 months!  Wow, the time has passed quickly.  Both kids are in a 'Mommy' stage and I am exhausted.  Hannah wants to be in my arms ALL the time.  DD1 is having a really hard time too.  We are slowly navigating though.

 

Hannah is good at getting up on her knees, but pushes herself backwards.  She has figured out some kind of mobility because I will find her across the room, although I have not seen how she does it.  She has been gaining very slowly and we suspect some allergies and I am off of Gluten at the moment and maybe dairy in a while.  Our naturalpath is going to do some tests after some gut healing.  No teeth or food here either.  Waiting to get the results of the tests before we introduce anything, although, she has none of the signs (not sitting alone, no teeth etc.)

 

Good to hear from all of you.

Mae's not really into eating solid food yet... most of the time its playing with it and putting it in her mouth like to taste it but no swallowing yet. Learned that after several raisins went in but nothing but the usual yellow poo came out lol guess she spit them back into her hand or something.

 

But if I don't give her some to play with she gets mad. Not even her fork or spoon are enough to keep her happy when we are putting those things in our mouths and she doesn't get to too!

So who has amber teething necklaces? What do you think? Lila had 2 teeth break through in the past week.  There was some general crankiness when she was tired.. and maybe she was sleepier than normal, but overall she did amazingly well.  She didn't need any otc meds for pain at all, and I would have totally given her something, I'm not into making a baby tough it out ya know.  I don't know if she just had an easy time teething or if the necklace works.  Either way I am passing them out for baby shower gifts!

 

So to recap.. She scoots backwards, has 2 teeth (sorta!), loves avocado and refried beans,  (I knew my baby would love mexican food!)  hates peas and not a fan of carrots either.  Today my girl tried to pull herself up with a laundry basket.  She made it about 1/2 way before I had to rescue her.  I'm not ready for my bitty girl to do so much! She's way more independent than my first.

Ellie is 7 months old today!  faint.gif

 

I can't believe how fast the past month has gone...

We use an amber teething necklace on Silas.

I think it helps, but MY GOODNESS he's bothered by teething. So we've also been using Camilia and occasionally Tylenol. I just hate to see him so miserable. I've been able to feel those teeth beneath his gums for MONTHS now.  :(

 

Here's a little story about the amber necklaces. DH's little sister had Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis growing up. She's in her 20s now, but still has some pain in her neck and shoulders. We got her an amber necklace for Christmas and told her that it was supposedly helpful (and it was pretty anyway). She was skeptical, but wore it for a week and then didn't wear it to church on Sunday. When she got home, she felt awful--the kind of thing that would ordinarily confine her to her bed for the rest of the day. She put the necklace on, took a nap, and woke up feeling like a million bucks! Silas can't tell us how the necklace helps him or doesn't (and we don't care, really...it's not hurting him, and it's adorable!), but it was nice to hear from my SIL that it seems to help her.

Ozzy is "scooting"-- not quite army crawl, but nearly.  He can sit by himself briefly but still topples over constantly so I wouldn't say he's sitting independently yet.  

 

The first two teeth are in but he's still teething like mad, LOTS of bumps on his gums, I wonder how many are going to be coming in soon.  I've given him tylenol in the evening the past few nights, he seems so miserable.  I had a cracked tooth last month that got infected (ending up with a root canal), and it gave me a whole new appreciation of how much it sucks to have tooth pain, haha.  

 

His favorite thing at the moment is pulling his sister's hair, whenever she's within reach.  So that's fun.  

 

I reckon I'm going to have to start solid food soon.  Ugh.  

 

I so love this age.  6-9 months is probably my favorite stage so far (which is how we ended up with Ozzy in the first place... Emma was an ADORABLE 8-month-old).  He's so alert and charming.  He's a big giggler.  Loves being tickled and lifted up in the air superman-style (I'll be built like a pro wrestler before he's 1 year old... it's some serious exercise lifting his 21 lbs up in the air).  He's started to like the bath, I may end up with another water baby like Em.  

 

Us yesterday, at my cousin's son's first birthday party...

My son is almost 7 months old... wow, time goes by fast!

 

We follow baby-led solids and he mostly just tastes/plays with his food. He spits most of it out. Yesterday, I think he actually ingested a bit of avocado, and then he threw up twice at night. Does that mean he's not ready? He didn't seem bothered by the vomit. He just went back to sleep.

I think I have thrush!!! The last few days have been ROUGH. Nursing is like toture! M had an ear infection and brhoncitius and was put on anti-biotics, so it would make sense that we have thrush now. It's miserable... I was up crying much of last night not knowing what do becuase I didn't want to nurse. We have a dr. appointment today, so I'm really hoping the dr can give me a good suggestion. I read up on treatments,  just hoping the dr knows which one will work best for us.....  We took family pictures last week though! family.jpg
