omg! the exact same thing happened to me yesterday! except no dog.
Griffin's chin is totally covered from the spit bubbles as well. His dad makes jokes about him foaming at the mouth, haha!
When did he stat rolling, when does that start happening? Myself, I would flip him back over but that is because Im paranoid.
well, Oliver's not yet rolling over, but I would probably decide depending on where he was sleeping. is your bed fluffy at all? our mattress is kind of saggy and crappy, and we have a fluffy comforter, so I'd probably roll him over if he were sleeping there. his bassinet is firm, though (it's an Arm's Reach cosleeper), so if he were in there with his sack blanket, I'd probably leave him. any guess as to why he turns over when you're gone? does he ever do it while you're laying next to him?
and while we're discussing cosleeping, I've been wondering: how do you guys deal with blankets? I usually sleep au naturel, so we have a sheet and comforter on our bed now. sleeping topless is great for nursing, but how do you keep warm? and do you put the baby under your blankets, or does he go on top with his own covers? is his head level with your head or with your boob? if boob, then again, how are the covers arranged? I'm asking mostly for curiosity's sake, as we really only share a bed during daytime naps. Oliver is content to sleep in his bassinet at night, and he's only been waking up once to eat between 10 and 7 or so, so I don't mind getting out of bed to feed him. but when we do sleep together, I've wondered how other people do it.
sounds like the same positioning we use. another reason why it didn't work for us all night is that ours is a double bed, so it feels a bit small with two adults, a baby, and a dog for eight hours. that, and the crappy mattress - everything kind of rolls to the saggy center! I honestly think it would be ideal if we had a queen- or king-sized mattress on the floor, and then I wouldn't have to worry about Oliver rolling off the bed during his naps, either!
anyone else on a poop strike? Oliver stopped going more than once a day when he started taking Nystatin for thrush, but I think it was probably just a coincidence. but we finished it two weeks ago, and he's still waiting a long time between poops! today is day 6 of his longest streak, and it's making my husband nervous. somehow the baby always seems to go while Chris is holding him. last time, Daddy had to change his own pants and give the baby a bath afterward. it was serious business!
So I am going back to work in two weeks and decided to start pumping a bit so I'd have a small stash. I will be feeding him at lunch every day, so I figure he'll probably have two bottles a day- one in the morning, one in the afternoon. That will be about 2.5 hours between all feedings, which I think he can manage. I read on kellymom that you want to plan for 1 to 1.5 ounces for every hour you're away from baby, so just to be very safe, I thought 4 or 5 ounces per bottle. I was pretty worried about getting that much, but I'm only working Monday-Thursday and only through the end of the year when I will be able to SAH. I pumped after he ate today- only on the right side. I got 5 ounces in 10 minutes. FROM ONE SIDE!!! I stopped after 10 minutes, but it was still squirting out.
Guess I didn't need to worry. I think I may have oversupply, huh? I am shocked. I never leak and never get engorged. Is it possible he is eating way, way above the average amount, that I make that much?? Should I be sending a lot more than 4-5 ounces?
