YES! Our insurance went up by over $100/mo with just the two of us on July 1st (the new year) and then we had to pay for the family rate starting Aug 1st... even though River wasn't born until Aug 14th. I had no idea how expensive it could get. We are thinking we might have to move out of our place and get a small apartment in order to make the payments.

That's what I was thinking too. And River got it in his eyebrows too but no where else... isn't that weird. But it went away in about a week, I just wiped his face every day and put coconut oil on his eyebrows. I don't know if it actually helped, or if it just went away with time, but it was so sad looking!

I read that swinging can cause them to sleep lighter, and they don't get the deep rest they need. Makes me feel a smidgen better b/c I really feel like a bad mom that he sleeps in a swing and not in bed cuddled up next to me. But with his reflux, it's the only thing that seems to be working. Sigh.
Sorry you are still dealing with the reflux issue. Did you mention that you took him to the ped recently? What did they say? Any Rx?
AFM, It's 5am here and I'm up pumping. This seems like the most productive time to do it, and doesn't interfere with DS's feeding, but I seriously HATE it! I just hope I don't wake up River when I get back into bed so I can get some sleep until at least 6 or 7.
Oh yeah, and another thing. I just started to feel my let down this week. I thought I was one of those women who just don't feel it, but lately I get a burning sensation in the nipple that he's not nursing on when it happens. Took me a while to figure out what it was, since it's the same burning feeling I had when I had thrush, except it only lasts a few seconds.
