Of course, if you want it and have it or make it, she should at least be offered some, too. Not nice to eat in front of someone and not give them some, too. (I know you don't do that. )
Anyway, now we don't have any dietary restrictions. My boys can eat as much of just about anything they want. I have learned that they don't want much junk when they know they can have it all the time, unlike their friends who gorge on junk whenever they are away from their controlling parents.
Ha! How rude would that be! No I never do that. I never get anything or eat anything in front of her that I wouldn't also let her eat. If I do slip and have something not vegan, it's on my own time and not with her. Same reason she sips soda, eats junk, etc. If we have it, she's allowed, too.
It's funny tho b/c more often than not she chooses healthier fare. She's been known to turn down cookies/cake/candies for an apple or banana. She eats such a variety of healthy things -- all her veggies, loves beans, chickpeas, ethnic food (indian, greek, chinese, etc). Her favorite snack is hummus and carrots or chips and guac. Her tastes run the gamut. So, I'm not worried -- at least she's not a french fry-nugget kid. You know? Same as your kids. Since it's allowed, she's cool to choose other things too.
I keep forgetting to ask. Has anyone heard of, used or know someone who has used ColicCalm? It's a homeopathic remedy for gas, reflux, hiccups, etc. I got some yesterday and gave D a half a dose last night. Within minutes he was screaming. It didn't last long but it was continual, which he had never done before. He would occasionally scream once or twice like he was in pain but that was it. No ongoing screams or crying. I don't know if it was a coincidence but I'm afraid to give him anymore.
I'm going to try the block nursing, one breast for a 2 hour period, to see if that helps with my milk ejection and supply. I guess I'm old school because I have always had it in my head from back when I was breastfeeding Ryan that I need to get baby to nurse on both breasts and every feeding. From what I read, I think that is probably the cause of my problems.
Hmm. I wouldn't use it again. It may have just been the gas breaking up, but that would freak me out too.
Def try the block nursing. It can only help!
Oh - I talked to my mw. I said we could totally do Sat but if it's ok, we could just do it next week. She was totally cool with that. Asked me if I was having any bloody show or losing plug, and I sighed and said no, just lots of ctx. We talked about how I'm feeling mentally and if I was ok to wait a week, and I said I'm tired and getting crabby but otherwise I'm doing ok. Ready, but ok. If anything I'm to call her anyways, so, she said she'd talk to me this weekend unless I needed her before then.
I went for a short stroller walk (less than 1 mi) and did some lunges. I figure if he's ready, maybe something will trigger him out!
