Subbing and welcome to May! I saw that Midnight Commando also posted a thread. You guys must've posted at exactly the same time...Which one will we use??
post #3 of 367
hahaha. I did rock paper scissors, 2green was the right hand, I was the left hand. Looks like you won

How do I delete the other post? the title I mean?

anyhoo, this is what I wrote on my now defunct thread:

Things have been insanely busy here. Still working on the remodel, trying to get the yard and garden ready for summer, etc. Sadly, I told our current daycare yesterday that we would only be there for 2 more weeks. I don't want to switch and I love the situation so much, but we cannot continue to afford it

gotta run - DD is trying to smash banana into the keyboard...

Greetings! Can't believe we are hitting 18 months!

Millie had a trial in the toddler room at her nursery yesterday and wasn't convinced! She took one step inside and ran out again! She stayed up there for an hour though so I guess she got used to it! I thought she'd be moving up in September but they're hoping to move her up before that!

I've got the potty down from the loft today and put it in the bathroom so she can get used to it. Might even see if she'll sit on it at bathtime. We'll see!

I'm thinking about the potty too. Diapers do not please me with all this solids-eating!

Are you sure?

So, how have nights been going for everyone lately? Atticus goes down between 7-8, is usually up for a nursing around 12 and then again around 3. He's up for the day between 7-8. How's everyone else doing? The two times a night are tolerable, but not really ideal, kwim?

I hesitate to say this, but DD has been going down at 7pm and getting up at 6am. I traded places with DH so I'm sleeping on the other side of the bed from her so perhaps the aroma of fresh milk isn't reaching her?

Millie had a bad night last night - she's gone into her summer sleeping bags and has been wearing pjs with no vest as it's been quite warm here. Think lsat night must have been colder. She was basically up between 12 and 3 with much toing and froing between our room and hers. She wouldn't settle in with us. In the end we had to just shut her door and leave her to it. She didn't cry for long though and slept through till 7.

Normally she goes down around 7.15pm and sleeps through till gone 7am! Mind you she's been sleeping well since 8 weeks. Would you like me to leave now?

Am I the only one who doesn't co-sleep or still bf?

We are no longer nursing here and we are doing what you might call "on-demand" co-sleeping (is there such thing??). We pretty much go into her room at bed time and if she climbs into her bed and lays down with no fuss then that's where she sleeps. If she puts up a fuss at all then we just put her in our bed and she goes right to sleep

About 2 weeks ago she was having a rough time of it but her sleeping pattern has gone back to normal now. She goes to bed at 9 and sleeps until somewhere between 7:30 and 8:30.

Abbi will hit 18 months on sunday and it's toooo soon! we were wanting to wait until next year to ttc but as each day goes by i get a deeper yearning to start sooner.......didn't we JUST give birth????!!!
post #11 of 367
We don't co-sleep anymore. We stopped when Atticus was maybe 10 mos or so. Every once in a while, he'll lay down w/ us, but it's not a normal thing.

I do feel like I just gave birth, but I am def ready for another one.
post #12 of 367
Uhhh maybe I'm the abnormal one we are co sleeping and nursing on demand. although I think we are out of sheer laziness on my part Magnus has 4 molars coming in and all 4 of his eye teeth too. The nursing allows him to continue to sleep pretty well considering. I am considering night weening once the teeth have all broke through cause I'm not sleeping well. I think that I will try to make it to two years old with breastfeeding, I tried with my second dd and made it to 20 months. I have a very love hate relationship with nursing right now.
post #13 of 367
Dang! I've got to work on that night weaning.... but something always prevents me. We are still sleeping with Carl, although his toddler bed is right next to mine and he'll nap in that. Carl still nurses once or twice at night and I'd go through the week of 'pat-pat-pat' with him to get him out of the habit; but every time I'd like to try he manages to get sick or be getting his eye teeth or something is out of whack.

I'd love #3 but am committed to my skinny jeans this summer!

We have the little potty out, but boys are tricky! I guess I have to teach him to poke his penis down there, or he's going to get an eyeful! We have a lovely, simple wooden potty... I hope I don't end up investing in one of those Boon things with the penis shield.

Carl likes to pee down the heat vent, though, so maybe I should just put a pot over there. He's also pooped on the train table- you should have seen how surprised he and Cecilia were! Hilarious, I tell you!!

This stage is just cute as can be... I am loving two kids that can handle walking from the car to the library, leaving the house for more than two hours and are happy with my mom while I CAN HAVE A LIFE! Not that my real life isn't my kids... I just can't wait for the next one.

Hi Ladies!

This is my very first post on MDC. (So hopefully I am doing this right - haha) But a friend of mine recently turned me on to it and I am very excited to meet other mommies that have munchkins the same age as my own!

Hope to get to know all of you very soon,

Lynny

Same here! Mine doesn't show anytime sign of slowing down but that's ok, doesn't bother me, just some around me, but they don't notice half the time that I'm nursing an 18 month old.

As for the sleeping it has gotting so much better, the other night we were down to getting up once at night, which i thought I would never see again!!

Oh! deltadawn, our babies have the same birthday!
post #16 of 367
What a great time for me to join the conversation! :-) I am still nursing my 18 month old as well. Ayla and Elijah share the same birthday - pretty neat. I deal with people getting uncomfortable when they realize I am BFing her all the time. When I am feeling like SuperMom, I don't even let it get to me. Then other times, when I am feeling more vulnerable, I get insecure. Anyone else have this problem? I am pretty active in my local LLL and have some terrific support there, but the other 29-30 days of the month it's a crapshoot. Can I help it that I have awesome breastmilk? heehee
post #17 of 367
hello everyone! Sorry I was so MIA lately! It is crazy on this board for a while for me and I hardley made it out of my modding forums!

We still BF and Co-sleep...we actually cosleep with my son as well! Yarrow nightweaned herself about three months ago but she still get up once to switch to my other side...I think when my ds gets into bed with us she wants to be next to him...

I bet I am the only one who will miss diapers? It has some to do with the fact that I am at stash nirvana (I am the MDC cloth diaper exspert) but more so that Yarrow is my last baby! Ever. Done. Finished. End of babyhood forever.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!


Potty training seems like the true end of babyhood to me and I am just not ready to think about it yet.

I love reading all the updates~!

Can I add my little Ayla Dawn to the list? 11/21/06?

Another Nov. mama

Hi! I'm also new to MDC. My son Ollie will be 1 1/2 on May 6th. We are also in transition with sleeping (as usual I still hardly sleep). He sleeps for 4-5 hrs in his crib and wakes to nurse 2-3 times. How long should 18 mo. olds sleep? He sleeps sometimes only 9 hrs. with an hour long nap, doesn't seem like enough to me. I am also considering weaning, any tips? He is easily distracted some days, other days are more trouble than its worth. Ha Ha I can relate to nursing and cosleeping out of laziness! Especially when Dad isn't as helpful as he could be.
We had a rough day today, is it possible that the tantrums of terrible twos start this early? Just when I thought I might be ready for another baby..
Today we took a day trip to Sedona. It was me, my son, and five other friends/acquaintances who are all without children (but two have degrees in child development). So frustrating I could cry! My son was so contrary, pitched many fits, and actually embarrassed me. I think I was uptight because I felt like the other girls were judging my parenting and judging my child. Not because anyone actually said anything, just the way they looked at us. It can be so uncomfortable to be a mom in your early twenties and most of your friends are without kids. No one seems to understand how exhausting and difficult it actually is. I always feel the need to defend myself, and defend mothers everywhere when a friend compares babysitting or daycare work to being a sahm. I know its not their fault, who can possibly imagine the ups and downs of parenting until you actually have a child. You never know how hard it is until you look at your child's sweet face, realize how fiercely you love him, and realize that you just aren't going to do everything right all the time, no matter how much you try.
Oh what a day.. I'm sorry for being all over the place, but we're all moms here and have been there...right?

Welcome Ollie and Ayla Dawn! Glad you found us.

This is exactly what we do. Lea goes to sleep 7:30-8, and sleeps until 6:30. If she wakes up, DH pats her back and she usually falls right to sleep again. We don't bf anymore. Totally stopped at 14 months. I went on a business trip and when I got back she was overjoyed to see me, but never asked for a boobie again.

Potty: DS (3.5 y) is still in diapers. He can sit in his own poo for hours if you let him, and doesn't care if he is wet either. Just no interest whatsoever. And 3.5 yo poo is major nasty! Lea sometimes sits on his little potty though, "Lea toilet."

Twogreencars, thanks for starting the thread. Is it holiday today over there? It is me and only 3 other people in the office today; and as you can see I am not really working that hard!
