i recently had two other inquiries about it, too. i'm so incredibly sad because i was really wanting to get a wrap but just couldn't justify spending the cash right now. hopefully it will turn up today. if not, i'll pm you so you know this MT is out of the running....

The woman is super nice to work with and the cradle folds down into this small carrying case. I took it with me to WI this summer and I will again at x-mas. I hung extra hooks at my moms place so when I arrive I just hang it up and we are good to go!
Oh that is nice :
I was looking at this one as well

its more expensive at $120 but I love it. It also hooks to the ceiling.

Does anyone have experience with these? Must do more research before I invest all this money.

Gosh I am goine 4 days and things just fly by.

Miss Maggie is getting chubbier and chubbier. She use to scoot but the last 3 weeks or so she does not. I think its her weight gain. She gained almost 4 pounds in a month. She has rolls and rolls of fat.

Maggie has been chewing for a couple of months ago and do not dare eat something without offering her a bite. Usually just a couple of bites and she is fine. She loves all the squashes that are out there.

I am still looking for a good night sleep. She always wants to be latched on.

Hi!

I lurked thru the September thread and wanted to read all the posts before posting.

Can I join in? My Elisabeth was born May 4th, 12:57 pm. I've got a question too, how do you get the little out of LO's bellybutton? It won't come out with a Q-tip.

~firemommaof1, you have my sympathy, Elisabeth gets super-wiggly when she's nursing down at night, and in the night, too. I can tell when she's awake or asleep by how she moves. We just got a crib from DH's aunt to sidecar, I didn't want to at first, but between DH sprawling and E's wrigglng, gach! And we have a CA king--DH is 6'2".

Let me be the first to say




I love the name Elisabeth : so welcome to her to! This is a really nice group of ladies.

The night time thing is driving me : maybe I should look into the sidecar thing... we need more room

[QUOTE=sarabrynn82;9381796]My girls nurse to sleep almost exclusively - naps included! They will fall asleep in the stroller or car seat if the circumstances are just right (full bellies + sleepiness) but I'm pretty much the sole sandman.QUOTE]

My dd was like this but now both dd and ds prefer my dh to put them down!!!!:

It is unbelievable at 8:30 I am off duty he puts one down and then the other it is amazing. Sometimes I try to help out but it happens in half the time if he does it...go figure.
post #147 of 680
Yay, Laura! Thanks for teaching my how to multi-quote. I'm loving it .

You ladies have been chatty while I was away! DD was an ideal travel companion on our trip to the left coast...nursed during take-off and landing and slept and nursed the rest of the time. It was so nice to see my folks.

DD rolled twice on her 4 month birthday, while we were in Seattle. But not since. I'm not pushing it, she is just such a content one, and sooooo smiley and alert lately.

Iris is also grabbing at everything these days. She loves the sound of paper or plastic crinkling. We tried to eat lunch out at a local restuarant yesterday, and she shrieked (loudly ) with delight the whole time.

Mastitus fear is gone. Plugged duct seems to be vanishing and the aches and such are gone. Thank goodness. I am putting in a job application this week and working long hours at night to get it together so I can not get sick!
I love this! And it says they can stay in up to 3 years? Hmmm...

Glad to hear the plugged duct is clearing up. I've also heard cabbage leaves from quite a few mamas. Oh, and good luck on the apps. and finding a place you'll love to live and work in!

Welcome to all the new mamas, nice to have you here.

Off to sit in a hot bath with a glass of cabernet...glad to be back home .

re: hanging cradle

We have an Amby, but quit using it about a month ago, because DS started trying to roll over onto his tummy everytime we put him in it. He now sleeps on his tummy. There's no room to roll in the Amby, and doesn't look like it for those beds, either. 3 years my arse! The Amby says until a year or sitting or until they can climb out? Oh well.
post #149 of 680
Our baby can roll in the cradle for sure. It is big. The weight of his body usually keeps him in place while he is sleeping, although he moves some, but I have watched him roll back and forth when he is awake. He sleeps on hiss side mostly and when he stirs it moves and rocks him back to sleep.

Our friend's 4 year old fits in it. When Clay is bigger we will make it closer to the ground. I got this one because not only is it way cheaper and more portable, it lasts longer and is way better designed imo.

Had our 4 mo wbv today. Kiran is 15 lbs 8 ozs and 26.5 in tall. Doing great. MD emphasized that food is not recommended before 6 mos. That's about it, I'm wondering if we really need to go to these visits, except for lead testing, which MD is recommending we do early for Kiran as dd1 is high as of the latest test (had one today, but no results till next week at the earliest.)

Ack. Live and learn. I think the Amby is way overpriced. Luckily the resale on eBay is great, otherwise we wouldn't have bought it. I do like that you don't have to drill a hole in the ceiling, which makes it very portable - it's very quick and easy to set up and take down and we've taken it on out of state trips several times.

I have that cradle and Callum is too long for it already, not to mention he just wants to roll over onto his tummy and can't do it in there and so his face is squished up against the side while he is stuck and he can't roll back. But it was wonderful for the first three months, especially because it was summertime and I didn't really want to sleep wiht a sweaty baby glued up next to me
post #153 of 680
holy this is a busy thread!

Callum is five months now and he can sit! totally blows me away he's been able to do it for two weeks now, but now he's a lot more stable I can leave him sitting and he'll play with his toys for a while eventually he reaches to far and tips over

he isn't very good at grabbing anything besides my coffee cup. he tries a lot but seems to miss, of course i'm extra sensitive to his shortcomings because of his awful entry into the world and the ped pointing out that I should pay attention to his milestones in case of issues caused by the lack of oxygen.

He sure smiles a lot and laughs too. My dh went and had a vasectomy last month so i'm relieved and sad at the same time. But I"m just done with babies I"m tired of getting up all night. i'm trying to refocus my energy on home hobbies that all my kids can participate in so this week we are getting chicken eggs to hatch in an incubator and my dh is building us a chicken coop. I feel very homestead-like between the garden and the canning and now the chickens feels nice to be self sufficient somewhat

I love our Amby but we had an acid reflux baby so one night of sleep alone I would have paid $300 for it. I am debating now about a bigger spring as Maggie is over 18 pounds and at the rate of growth she has she will need on in less then 2 months but its also hard laying her down sound a sleep. So I am not sure if I am going to get the bigger spring or not but then the question is where will she sleep at for naps.

laneysprout... you are so sweet! While we are learning how to multi-quote, can some one school me on how to edit the words in a link... I know how to leave a link by copying the url from above, but how do ya'll leave links like... for example...

"... take a look at my diapers for sale here."



with "here" being the link to the dipe pics. Make sense??

Hiya, checking in -- it's been a while! Gus is also "freakishly huge" (not) at 17 lb and 27 inches. He's very long for his age, but that is par for the course in our family.

I think he's actually about ready to crawl, which freaks me out! I'm not ready! He's been ooching his little bottom all over the place. If I put him on the floor in his activity gym, he's halfway across the floor before I can blink.

As for anxiety/stress issues, I am currently on medication for PPD and it is helping IMMENSELY. I went off it (without consulting my doctor -- big no-no) a couple of weeks ago on a trial basis and almost immediately all of the bad thoughts/feelings and anxiety came flooding back. It was almost debilitating. I was like, OMG, is this how I was feeling ALL THE TIME before I started the meds? Anyway, I went back on the meds and have found a cognitive-behavioral therapist that I am going to talk to, to see if we can work out some kind of plan for eventually weaning from the meds.

Anyway, we're all doing pretty well. I love checking in to see how all of you are doing! Wish I had more time to post lately!

:
When you type "... take a look at my diapers for sale here. Highlight "here" and then click the insert link button. (Looks like a world with the infinity symbol under it. Then you type in the link... like this.

Type Emma

Highlight Emma

Click World icon thing

Type in the website http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d5...tz/10-4069.jpg

Then you are done: Emma
post #158 of 680
And just let me say that after that conversation where we were talking about crawling and such....

Emma started scooting really really well. Crap. I'm not ready for 2 mobile children.

Today she got up on her hands and knees. Double crap.

Yesterday she started sitting unsupported.

I'm in for it ladies. She's barely 4.5 months old. (Born 5.26)
