So sorry - I forgot Law school final exams!!! GOOD LUCK! Can't remember what year you are...my DH is a 3L - so he's got the Bar Exam this summer - YUCK! That was the *worst* exam I ever took!!!:
CableGirl, it sounds like side-carring your crib should be a great solution. I hope it works well for you!
Landis has also been doing the panting/loud breathing/gasping thing, although not when about to nurse. He finds it hysterical if DH or I immitate that or any other sound he makes. He will make sounds to have them repeated for hours if one of us will oblige.
Has anyone traveled with their baby yet? We'll be driving 6 hours tomorrow to see my brother graduate from USMC boot camp. (Go little brother!) We're leaving late at night, so hopefully Landis will sleep for most of the trip. He has enjoyed the car much more since I fished out my old Raffi tapes from my parents' house. Did anyone else listen to Raffi as a kid?
Also, Landis and I might be going with DH to California for a conference he will be attending, which would entail a long flight. Has anyone flown with their baby? Did you get a separate seat or did your baby sit in your lap? I'm a little nervous about the trip, especially since we might end up flying separately from DH. In that case he would take all of the luggage, so I would only have DS and his diaper bag to worry about. Even so, it makes me nervous...
