Postpartum Chat - June - Page 7

post #121 of 225

Aww, you read my blog? I thought my mother was pretty much the only one. :p Yeah, unfortunately, it's not really the kind of blog that lends itself to relevant, high-CPC ads. Some blogs make a ton of money with ads, but they're mostly topical blogs (like, a midwifery blog would lend itself to ads for cloth diapers, sphygnonometers, doula services etc), with a high readership. And it helps if you blog about taxes or real estate, which is not something I could ever see myself doing...

 

I've written a bunch of online articles about natural haircare, and could probably revamp some of them to start a blog about that (perfectly legal, copyright-wise, for the articles over a year old); but I'm frankly kind of over that topic.

 

I guess I could pitch something to Mothering... I've always been a bit intimidated by it, especially as I tend to cite Mothering articles in my AP articles for my regular writing gig! I'll think on it, though. Anyone know if and what they pay?

 

You're Australasian? From whereabouts? I live in NZ at the moment, but spent six years in Victoria as a kidling. Ever heard of Echuca? (It's OK, no-one ever has....)

post #122 of 225

I think it could definitely be worth pitching to Mothering. Something to think about, at least.

 

I'm Sydney born & raised. My parents & extended family are all Kiwis. My mum's from Auckland, dad's from Christchurch (actually London, originally, but he moved to NZ as a boy).

 

I can't say I've heard of Echuca. ;)

I was just wondering this myself.  I just dug out my swaddle blanket and gave it a try and finally got an hour to myself while she slept!  However, now she has a horrible heat rash even though she only had a onesie on underneath and the AC was on.  Poor girl already has super sensitive skin and is always broken out as I am new to having to launder a babies clothes seperate, and now another rash on top of it.

post #124 of 225

Huh. I have sort of the opposite problem... I feel like Miles should get naked time, but it's too cold! The swaddle's great at keeping him warm, though.

 

Could you dress the baby in just a nappy, and use a light cotton sheet or portion thereof to swaddle her? Or could you try using a fairly narrow strip of cloth to swaddle just her arms? I'm pretty sure it's the arm restraint factor that keeps Miles happy in a swaddle; he doesn't care so much if his legs are free. You'd want to be very careful she didn't strangle herself with the strip of cloth, of course...

 

Or you could pop the swaddling fabric in the fridge for a bit first. :p Like we used to do with our pillowcases as kids in summer! Or better still, you could put the whole baby... no wait, that's probably sleep deprivation talking. Never mind.

 

MW came around today and seemed positively disappointed that I had nothing to report. Breastfeeding's going fine, he's filthying up his nappies on a regular basis, sleeping just fine, I'm not haemmorhaging or suicidal or otherwise clinically interesting... we ended up having a five-minute discussion about Jodi Picoult, I gave her some baby shampoos and stuff which people keep giving me, and which we don't use (we're pretty much water-only washers here) so she could pass them on to other clients, and then she left. I felt vaguely guilty for wasting her time, but then, I think she's required by the government to make a certain number of postpartum visits, and at least this one was short and sweet!

 

Discovered today while attempting to get my new credit card up and running that we're even broker than I thought... as in, DH had better start raking in some big bucks within the next month, or we'll be Living In Cardboard Box In Middle Of Road. Sigh. It did inspire me to send my invoice in for my last article... not that I'll get paid for a few months anyway. Spent some time looking up ways to make money writing online; sadly, it's not my first time looking that up, and it seems no exciting new opportunities have opened up since last time. And my employment options were never very rosy, ever... and I'd imagine far less so with a less-than-two-week-old baby, even if I wanted a job, and I imagine DH's manly pride would forbid it anyway. Arrrgh.

post #125 of 225

I have a cotton muslin swaddling blanket, and last night I did actually try to just swaddle his arms and let the legs be open....he still was a big sweat ball :( I have the air on 70! <--- our bill is going to be out of control! Anywho, I have found that wiping him down with a wash cloth and then applying California Babies Calendula cream is helping. Poor kid hasn't even gotten to wear any of his clothes yet haha

 

Smokering- I hope you find a good money making idea! I have looked and looked and looked before and never found what would work for me. But, then again, you have skills--- me, not so much :)

post #126 of 225

Wow, I am so never going to catch up with all of this!

 

I am thrilled to report that the bleeding has just about stopped!! YAY!! Down to just a tiny bit that only requires one of those tiny pantyliners. Thank God! There isn't much worse than having to wear a pad in the summer time. Yuck.

 

Baby has been extra fussy the past day or so, and he has diarrhea. Like total liquid poops without hardly any of those little seedy bits in them. I've been nursing him extra because of this. I wonder if he got a bit of a bug somehow, or if he got dehydrated.

 

I've been super sweaty at night lately and it's awful. Ezrah sleeps on my chest at least half the time, and the past few nights I've been waking up with both of us totally drenched from sweat. It's so gross! I'm trying to find the balance between keeping him warm and keeping me from overheating. So far I haven't been able to do it. It's made it a little harder than normal to get any sleep because I'm SO dang hot all the time! We have our AC on all the time and most of the time it feels just right.

 

Oh, and we have a flea infestation in our house. Lovely, right? I'm not sure what's different about this year than any other. We've never had issues before and the fleas have always been well-controlled with the flea drops once a month and the occasional bath in flea soap for the pets. We literally had to rip the carpet out of 3 rooms because the fleas were SO bad. You couldn't walk on the carpet without your legs being covered in fleas. Disgusting. So I'm obsessively vacuuming the house, and making the kids do it, and washing everything I can in hot water, and sprinkling diatomaceous earth all over the remaining rugs and carpets and washing the dogs and cats like there's no tomorrow... Ugh!! Thankfully the baby hasn't been bitten by any fleas yet and I'm hoping and praying that he won't because we'll soon have the fleas gone from the house.

 

Ok. Off to go vacuum some more!

post #127 of 225

Bah. So Miles has developed a charming habit of suckling until I let down, and then getting frightened by the quantity of milk emanating forth, and pulling off so I drip all over him. Lovely. We now both permanently smell of rancid breastmilk. Last night he was pesking around more than usual - wouldn't drink properly, just kept sort of playing with the milks - and by morning was absolutely drenched, swaddle and all.

 

On the, um, bright side, DH had a creative response to our financial crisis. He went online and bought a $150 make-it-yourself model of the Enterprise-A. It's nice to know our children's future is in such good hands. :p

post #128 of 225

Lol, Smokering, I have a similar "problem", because I have so much milk it chokes Elanora :p

post #129 of 225

$150?! *facepalm*

 

I'm also really glad the PP bleeding is almost over. 

 

Jenni, fleas aside, how's it all going having a newborn? Do you get much help from your mother? And how's your older son doing?

 

I finally had my first excursion outside the house since giving birth. We didn't even go far and I'm absolutely exhausted! We'll try a longer trip tomorrow. I need to get my fitness levels back up again after weeks of barely moving.

 

DD is just getting cuter every day. The newborn puffiness is wearing off and her features are becoming more refined. She's just beautiful.

 

We had another fussy couple of hours this evening. I just don't know what to do for her! She acts hungry, but then she doesn't seem to want the breast when i offer it.

 

She's currently asleep in her crib next to our bed. I'm sure it won't last long, but I'm enjoying having some personal space for a little while. Ahh I jinxed it - she's already started squirming.

Must be nice!  For the first week, I was thinking I was going to have a short bleeding time this time (opposite of the 8 weeks last time) but it picked up though I don't do too much but sit around, lol.  I am going on 3 weeks PP now and its still bright red but I think the flow has slowed.  I have some great long pantyliners that would work fine if they were long enough but unfortunatly the only ones that are long enough (since I seem to need coverage in the very front and very back but nothing in the middle, lol) are the huge ones I got for immediately PP and so I am still wearing the huge bulky diaper feeling ones.  Until I make it back to the store anyway. 

   As for fleas, strange that I have seen several in my apartment and have gotten some bites though we dont own a single pet!!!!  Only thing I can think is they are bad this year and maybe someone in the building owns one, but still not sure how or why they would be in my apartment.

Gigi does the same thing.  She will be just sucking along and then I feel the let down coming and thats when she pops off and just stares at me as it goes everywhere soaking the both of us.  Guess it only took a few times of her gagging with my forceful let down that she learned this trick, lol.  Makes for a wet night when I fall asleep while nursing.  I hate waking up all wet and she has dried milk all over her face, poor baby!!!

post #131 of 225

I am jealous of your flowing milk! Finn eats so much, so often that I am struggling to keep up! I can't shove enough food and water down my throat. I have been attempting to pump to actually see how much he wants/can drink in a feeding. This led me to see that my left breast is already giving up the ghost :( This happened with DD, but not until 4-5 months. I am hoping that it will pick back up... bc this baby needs both!!! At least I know that he likes the BreastFlow bottles and can drink from them easily and then immediately pop on the boob, take a paci, or whatever no problem! Still battling the prickly heat rash---- it's terrible!

 

Jenni-- I would DIE. I had a flea infestation once and it about killed me! I will be praying for you extra hard.

 

I also have lost my eat-sleep-eat-sleep newborn :( He is starting to get fussy and I don't like it! Here goes walking around with him permanently attached to either my boob or in the Moby....ugh.

I had this issue with DD! She eventually figured out that it works better to stay latched on and she learned how to handle the milk. Ezrah seems to do this every so often as well, and then he gets squirted in the face with milk! I've started tucking a dry cloth diaper under whichever breast I'm feeding from so I can catch some of the milk and not have it dripping everywhere.

 

I think I would have smacked him in the head, with a bat, had he done that! That's a lot of money to be spending when you're worried about money! MEN!!

Having a newborn is actually pretty great! I was so nervous that it would be a total disaster, but so far it's been pretty good. Since he was born a little before his EDD I get almost exactly 3 full months with him before I have to start back at school! Which will give us plenty of time to establish a good milk supply, a good routine, and hopefully be getting good rest every night, consistently. My mom helps out a little with the baby, but (here I go jinxing it) he's such a good baby that he really doesn't require all that much. We're still operating pretty much as we were before Ezrah was born: we share cooking and cleaning, the kids do their share, and it works because we're all pitching in.

 

My big kids are doing good, older DS seems to have good days and bad days. His main issue is that he isn't really listening or following directions lately. Combined with the lovely adolescent attitude it makes for some challenging times. However, he's currently lost just about every privilege he has because of his behavior, choices and attitude so I've started to see some change for the better. :) 

 

RE: the fussiness in the evening... we have that here too. I started taking him outside when he starts doing his evening fussy thing. We'll sit in the lounge chair or he'll be in his stroller, and I'll read or nurse him. Usually I read and he lays there and looks around at things. I think his evening fussiness is really him saying, "I'm bored and I'm tired of looking at the ceilings all day long!"  The sound of the cicadas really soothes him and he loves to look up at the trees. We went to the lake on Saturday and he slept almost the whole day, because being outside is that relaxing for him. So maybe try taking her outside and see if that helps?

The fleas live in the grass, so they're probably just hitching a ride on you when you're walking past them outside. We seem to have conquered the fleas that are ON the pets, still working on the ones that are living in the house. Yuck.  :(

Try some oatmeal for breakfast every morning. It helps with milk supply. You can also take fenugreek capsules and blessed thistle to help with milk.

 

 

It seems that whatever was causing tummy problems for baby, they're over! He's back to his normal poops & he's peeing more again. Looks like my "cure" of nursing more worked!
 

 

post #133 of 225

Jenni-- I now feel your pain with the fleas... only I have HUGE roaches. Two have entered and completely freaked me out in the past two days. I hate hate hate hate roaches!

 

I'm so glad that his tummy troubles are better :) And thanks for reminding me to take these babies outside more often! It looks like a walk is in our future...

post #134 of 225

Wow, insect issues seem to be, ah, bugging everybody!  duck.gif We have ants.  I know it's due to the drought, plus the fact that I cannot make my girls understand that food and drinks stay IN THE KITCHEN.  We had them so bad in my sister's house (we lived with her while building our house) that I ended up with some kind of weird PTSD or something.  Currently I've found them in the kitchen, dining room, downstairs bathroom, living room, and the girls' bedroom.  I also keep finding random ants crawling on me and it is really driving me nuts.  I can deal with just about anything but ants.  wild.gif

I'm glad everything's going pretty well with the kids, big & small!

 

I think you're right about the boredom. I remember DD1 being this way too. I'd have to be walking her around the house, showing her books and toys constantly until she eventually got tired and went to sleep.

 

DD1 is off daycare for summer holidays and she's already way off schedule. It's 11.30pm here and she's still up. It's making me a little crazy because by the time she goes to bed, DH & I are exhausted too and hardly get a moment to ourselves before bed. We need to get back on track! I have three episodes of So You Think You Can Dance that I haven't had a chance to watch yet. orngtongue.gif

 

We finally made it downtown to a café today. It was pretty painless. :) DD2 slept the entire time, and DD1 was well-behaved. Our waitress had pink hair, which sparked many questions from DD1, who is now planning to "paint" her hair pink too.

 

I'm going to try to make it to the mall tomorrow. I desperately need clothes! Everything I have is either maternity, or stuff that's depressingly small. I can barely get my pre-pregnancy pants over my knees! Hopefully I'll find something cute to wear while I'm losing the baby weight.

 

post #136 of 225

Snowflake, I hear you re: the clothes. Even my "fat" clothes from last DD are too small!!! Nothing like that to make me feel huge!!!

 

We have an ant problem here too. That and the mosquitoes this year are AWFUL!!! Argh!!!

 

To those who are pumping, I wouldn't take what you can pump and equal it to what baby is drinking. I can barely pump two ounces but have never had any supply issues. I just have trouble getting milk out unless there's a baby there. On the other hand, only you can tell if your baby is getting enough :)

 

AFM, I went to our local second-hand store yesterday because they had a 50% off sale. Bought a bunch of clothes for me and the girls and only paid $45 :)  I just LOVE a bargain!

 

I was also diagnosed with a staph infection on my arm yesterday. Blah! All I need right now.

post #137 of 225

Yawn. Erk. I "overdid" it again yesterday, apparently. I can't think how - all I did was a bit of housework and cooking - but combined with a not-so-great night on the part of the baby (burps, I think), I'm absolutely zonked again today. Nearly fainted in the shower, and crawled straight back to bed afterwards.

 

Luckily Mum's taking DD to dancing class again this afternoon. DH and I are going to venture out to spend a birthday voucher I got - a $50 one for a fancy clothing store. Unfortunately I'm not sure you can buy much at said store for $50 and we don't have much extra money to spend, but the voucher expires at the end of June (ie. tomorrow), so at the worst I can "buy" a bracelet or something and sell it online, maybe. Kind of a pity - I could really use some new clothes - but then, my size hasn't settled down yet either. At least, I hope it hasn't. :p

 

Am I the only one who's terrified of the prospect of going out alone with two kids? I'm fine with dragging DD around on errands - well, I should be by now, she's three! - but throw Miles into the mix and it's a scary, scary prospect. The carseat, figuring out how to carry him... I haven't actually used the mei tai, although DH has a bunch of times!... our pram doesn't fit in the boot of our car, and Miles has never been in it anyway... I don't know, it just intimidates me. I guess I'll have to get over it eventually; I can't make DH come along on all my grocery trips for the next three years.

 

Boo to ants, roaches and other creepy-crawlies! (Including staph infections, if they count as "creepy-crawlies"....)

 

So, anyone have a differential diagnosis for Miles' problem last night? He kept waking up and growling. Very odd. Growly, talky noises; they didn't sound upset at first, but then after a while he'd try to latch on, then give up, flail around the milks for a while and start to cry. I couldn't get him to take a decent feed all night, except for once when he lay across my chest (which was a pain, because he didn't get the angle right and I had to lie there pressing my breast down with one finger so his nose wasn't squashed against it, so he could breathe... you know how it is!) I thought he might have burps, but we kept burping him and didn't get many out, and he's usually pretty easy to burp. Anyway it was odd, and annoying. Any ideas? He wasn't swaddled, but then he was this morning and was still doing it to some extent. He wasn't hot or cold... He doesn't usually "talk" much, so the noises were unusual (and kinda cute, just not at 2AM!)

post #138 of 225

Oh yeah, I'm definitely afraid of going out with two kids, especially seeing as I don't have a driver's license (at the age of 28...ridiculous, I know!). DD1 has already figured out that she can act up because my hands are full with the baby.

 

Hey, I found my first white hair today. At first I thought it was just a really blonde hair, but nope, white. Hrmph.

post #139 of 225

Well, I just got my driver's license this year, while pregnant with Miles, so I do understand. It was getting ridiculous - DH doesn't have a car license either (motorbike, yes), so my mother was driving us all to church each week, and really, that was a tad pathetic. But it was still extremely scary for me to learn to drive. DH has been driving illegally for all our errands since I had the baby - ulp! He can drive, perfectly well, but he can't get his license until he gets a new pair of glasses so he can pass the eye test, and we can't afford new glasses right now... or a fine for driving without a license, unfortunately. So it's all a bit fraught.

 

White hair is kinda cool! You could grow out a Rogue-like silver streak. :p I henna my hair, and whenever the roots grow out they look grey... but I don't think they actually are, it's just that the dull dishwater-blonde/mousy-brown colour I naturally have looks really dull against the hennaed red. If it were really grey it'd look much oranger when hennaed. But it still gives me a fright on a regular basis - I'm only 25! I do want to have snow-white hair one day, though - here's hoping I get the white-hair gene, not the grey-haired one. My mother's going a lovely salt-and-pepper, but her hair is totally different to mine, so we'll see...

Funny so did I...

SO I haven't posted in a while, Keegan is doing well. He was 11lbs at his 1month well baby visit (7lb6oz to start with). We are struggling with an oversupply issue and some "colic" in the evenings. We are currently sitting up even though I will need to be up at 4am to get DP off to work. greensad.gif shhhhh he is actually sleeping in the swing, it only took 2 hours. Momma's with older children how are the "big's" doing? Holden is still struggling with not being the center of attention and has taken to acting out every chance that he can get. Bed time and nap time are horrendous. We have tried many things (star charts, other incentives, taking things away, etc) it continues to be a train wreck. It took DP 2 hours to put him down for a nap and tonight it took me 1.5 hours (while juggling colicky and barfing baby). BTW giving up nap is not an option because DP works from 4am to 8:30 and needs that nap to make it through the day especially since she has not been getting to bed until 10pm because of Keegan. Any Ideas?
