I got my moon this morning. It's so wild to see it when it's been over a year... what has it been... 14-15 months??

So I know a few of the other Mamas have also had AF return... how's your milk supply and everything else? I need some reassurance and big sisterly wisdom here
No AF here yet but some otherwise women will have words I am sure. Didn't want your post to get lost at the end of the other thread!

I think my darling daughter is messing with us again. Two nights in a row she has got up only once (well twice but the second time we get up and after I feed her she goes back to sleep). This is a huge improvement from the first of September where she was getting up every 90 minutes or so. Maggie now has her clock set to wake up every day at 7 am. Oh and she took 3 one hour naps yesterday also. I am telling you this girl is on to us and is just messing with our minds.

I have a confession to make : Callum watches baby einstein every morning at 630 in bed with me while I try to sleep till 7 :

Guess who slept for 7 hours last night!! Kade woke up once, fussed for a second, then went back to sleep. I hope this is a trend.

I've been taking 2 fenugreek capsules a day to help with supply just because I'm paranoid. He usually is a one side at a time nurser, but lately he'll nurse from both sides at some feedings, which makes me think my supply dipped some. He's also been a little grumpy.

Has anyone gone out and gotten fall clothes for their babe...I want to see pics...it is still 90* here everyday and Hudson still wears only onsies if that.
post #11 of 680
I am dressing him in long sleeves a fair amount now. I have't boughten things - we get tons of hand-me-downs from friends and family. I got hima black American Apparel Long sleeve shirt and a couple pants (Amazon has some great deals on AA baby clothes right now - check it out). Mostly he wears little Bob Marley shirts and funny gifts from family that says things like Made In Brooklyn or whatnot.

We are mostly in long sleeves here too. I have not really bought anything for Maggie. We still have a huge stash from the baby shower that was given to me plus I got a few things last year on clearance at Old Navy. I will not need to buy her clothes until summer.

We're in long sleeves and sweaters, here. It's been rainy and in the 60s.
post #14 of 680
subbing, not much to say, except that Laura, you never cease to amaze me!!

i keep losing auctions and such! : i blogged about it on myspace, complete with links to all the stuff i've been unsuccessful at buying i keep wanting to buy longies but they get snapped up before i have fundage. i keep trying to buy winter coats for my kids too, b/c they have NONE and neither do i! it's still HOT here, but i know that very soon we will have to turn on the heater and we'll be wanting jackets at least

gtg, claire's got her crank on

okay one last thing

does anyone have/use a water mesh sling/pouch for the shower? claire's gettin pretty big for the sink, and maybe i could actually shower more often than on an as-need basis that way ??yathink
post #16 of 680
Dh and I use a mesh KKAP for the shower and I love it. I could not shower with him in my hands - too slippery for me- but we both enjoy it with the pouch!

As you may recall, it was snowing here a couple days ago : But it is sunny and fall again here. Sebastian has exactly 4 pants and I was going to go get some more today at this great second hand store for children, but I haven't made it out of the house yet today. I did buy some long sleeve shirts and sweaters the other day, but I didn't buy enough pants for him. We didn't get much for clothing from my shower, so I am trying to build up a supply for when he suddenly runs out of clothes that fit him (like what happened this week!).

I bought a few things on clearance while pg last winter that he's already wearing : I've been shopping sales, clearance, second hand and outlets at different stores all over, so I think he should be good for a little while. I've been mostly on my own for clothes for him, I didn't get a baby shower this time.
Here's a pic of Kade in his winter clothes the day it was snowing.

I had a metal tub before. This one has a LOT LESS holes in the tub. I imagine metal tubs are stronger & can have more holes without affecting durability. Anyway, do you think the plastic tubs leave more water in the clothing? It seems like everything takes a lot longer to dry now. I guess that could be that the tub also is bigger so I'm doing bigger loads now
PUL is Polyurethane Laminate and yes, polyurethane is a plastic, pretty much anything "poly" is considered a plastic. PU is the same material that is used in the memory foam mattresses btw, just for interest's sake.

I actually noticed the other day that the tub in my new washer is metal.... I don't know which one was plastic that I was looking at, but apparently not the one we purchased! BUT, I noticed that the paint is already wearing off the bottom corners: For less water in your wash after spinning you need a front loader I think. Maybe an extra spin cycle??

Um, yuck. You are probably right, but I don't think I want to taste it... you let us know if you do though!! You might end up with another DDDDC!

My supply tends to dip a bit just before but it comes up again within a few day. I also end up with a super cranky baby for those few days of dipped supply, and it's not that it dips enough to run out, I could probably feed at least two babies.... but I think the hormones are in the milk and affect the babe.

I am in shock, I can't believe you said boughten. We're in long sleeves some days here, and pants. My peeve about pants lately, WHY do they make pants for kids under 2yrs that don't have snap crotches if they are not stretchy? Grrrrrr!

Ok, wool users, I have been looking at wool fabric and have been pondering buying some to make covers... anyone got any opinions?? I know someone local to me that uses them and I am going to ask her as well, but thought I would put it out to you ladies too

I think I have squandered nap time, but hopefully I'll get a few minutes to nap myself!
