For calories, I calculated how much I need (not breastfeeding) to stay the same weight. Adding in breastfeeding, then, the weight has slowly dropped off while not harming baby Mae at all.

Both of Mae's top teeth are through, still only one on the bottom. Looks so odd to me, I've only ever known children to get both bottoms then both top!

It isn't :( I'm, stuck between 140-144

 

I'd like to be 10lbs from here. I'm only 5'2" so the weight doesn't really have room to hide. I keep blaming the csection but I think it's exhaustion (still broken sleep) and lack of motivation. I did well on the 30 day shred but started skipping days, got busy, then never started back.

 

I need to do something. I feel pretty bad about myself lately.

He's really losing the newbie look!

We're doing WBC mostly for the vaxes and because he is on Phenobarbital for his seizures and longterm use can cause developmental delays and I just want to be sure to catch anything asap. So far he is right on track.

 

He is 21 lbs 1oz and 29 1/4 inches at exactly 9 mos.

So little Ollie had his 9 month appointment and is 21lbs and 30in.  He loves to babble and pull himself to standing on everything.  He also loves, loves, loves to bang hard objects together.  My house is a very noisy place to be :D

However ... he's a biter.  Any tips from anyone on how to handle this?  It started out when he would give big hugs he would open his mouth on your shoulder.  Now he bites down on hugs and it is starting to progress to biting my legs when he want my attention.  I've tried the loud "Ouch" and putting him down ... he laughs.  I've tried bursting into tears and putting him down ... he laughs.  I yell, he laughs.  Sigh ... Any thoughts?


MaerynPearl's Avatar MaerynPearl 08:13 AM 06-22-2011

I would like to know too. Mae is a biter, she doesn't laugh when I react but it does make her upset and cry, too... but she doesn't stop! I will start crying and she will start crying and I will stop crying and she will do it again!

Hannah is a biter too.  I just take her away from the area she is biting and say 'no biting, gentle to mommy'.  She doesn't seem to stop permanently, but she does stop for the minute.

 

We had our 10 month (9.6 month) appt. yesterday.  She looks good although she is really not gaining well.  She started at 9 lbs, 12 oz and 21.25 inches long.... at almost 10 months she is 18 lbs, 1 oz and 29 inches long (30% for weight and 85% for length).  Doc doesn't seem concerned since she is meeting all  milestones.  We are not really doing much solids and have been trying, but she just is not into it.

 

 

I need to post another picture soon.  She is just so cute!  I will get DH to download them soon.

That's how big Emma was at a year (born at 7 lb 4 oz).  She's two now.  She's fine-- strong, healthy, bright, etc.  She's just not a chubby baby/toddler, she's a "banana"-type.  Those genes run through my family (skipped me, unfortunately).  

 

As long as Hannah is strong, healthy, doing well, I wouldn't worry a bit.  Especially since babies tend to "plateau" between 6-9 months-- all that increased crawling/moving.

I wish I had pics of DS with our dogs. I got one when he was very young, but that dog has since passed away (he was 17). The other dog just turned 17 and his is too rough with them, so the dogs did/do stay away.

 


RRMum's Avatar RRMum 05:19 PM 06-22-2011

Hi I had this issue with DS, he was even biting while nursing.  I tried all that you did with no luck.  What worked is a loud "Ouch that hurts" then I firmly set him on the floor and left the room for a about a minute.  After a couple of tries that worked.  I was lucky though he wasn't yet crawling so there wasn't much trouble he could get into while I was hiding in the other room.  When I returned I just acted as if nothing had happened.  Good Luck!


Amanda_Reyasmom's Avatar Amanda_Reyasmom 05:46 AM 06-23-2011

Stella wants very little to do with the baby while she's actually awake lol.  The exceptions are when she's eating or has just finished eating.  Stella is extra affectionate.. or maybe she's just tasting the baby, plotting.  :P

Anyone having separation anxiety? Mark often cries when I leave the room, except when he's with daddy. I felt so bad for my mom last night who tried to entertain him for an hour (while I got a massage) to no avail. I know this can be normal, but it came out of nowhere.... 


Kelly1101's Avatar Kelly1101 06:45 PM 06-25-2011

Both of mine had it early.  Emma was AWFUL.  AWFUL.  AWFUL.  From about 6 months to nearly 10 months old.  Jason called it "Emma's five foot rule" I could not be farther than five feet away from her or she would scream like you were pulling out fingernails.  She didn't even want Jason.  Just me.

 

Ozzy had it much milder, and only for about a month, I guess around 8 mo - 9 mo (he's been better the past few weeks, he'll be 10 mo in a week).  And he is a lot more okay with having daddy hold him instead of me at this point.

 

Really all you can do is suck it up and repeat to yourself "this too shall pass, this too shall pass."

 

 

 

Although seriously sometimes with Emma I now miss it, LMAO.  She is a frighteningly independent toddler.  Like, if we're at the park, she doesn't even care where I am, she will just run right off with whatever little friend she can find, and not even listen when I'm hollering at her to stay close and not go too far.  

Moral of the Story:  No, you are not spoiling your baby by giving in to separation anxiety and letting him/her be near you.  No, your kid will not be Ruined because you don't force him/her to be held by other people.  No, your kid is not going to be tied to your apron strings forever-- he/she will still figure out how to be independent.  Tell anyone who says otherwise to shut their cake hole.


MaerynPearl's Avatar MaerynPearl 06:50 PM 06-25-2011

It almost seems like Mae is starting to have separation anxiety about daddy being gone, though he's been gone 6 months!

 

And yeah I agree, giving in to separation anxiety is NOT a bad thing! I constantly did with my now 8 year old and he's extremely independent. He just spent the past 8 hours at a friends house (for a birthday party) and I am 100% positive the mother had no issues with him (she always tells me how well behaved he is over there!)

Luckily, he's smart enough to know to stay away from strangers and if one tries talking to him when I'm not around (or dad, or another trustworthy adult) to find someone he knows to be sure it is okay. I still worry though... and according to my mom I will continue to worry until the day I die lol... Apparently your baby having babies of their own only makes it worse, not better!


sk8boarder15's Avatar sk8boarder15 07:14 PM 06-25-2011

Its just hard because he went from a super happy with everyone baby, unless he was tired, to an only OK with Mom and dad baby in no time flat! I'm used to some freedom. I just feel bad for him too. Hes getting 3 teeth in right now too (lateral incisors) and possibly his first molars (hes chewing back there a lot too all the sudden) so the poor guy is mess. He's crying in daddy's arms right now becuase I needed a break. He's been a mess ever since he got out of the tub, SCREAMING. He's eaten, nursed on both sides (for a LONG time) had tylonal, and he's still screaming.  :'( 


MaerynPearl's Avatar MaerynPearl 09:02 PM 06-25-2011

MaeMae's been chewing in the back a lot lately, too, but I don't think it's teeth. Not totally sure what it is (new sensation now that she has more control over her hands maybe?)


Laurski's Avatar Laurski 09:50 PM 06-25-2011

Haven't been around much lately b/c of the recent MDC issues...but thought I'd check in with our DDC babies.

 

So much happening with all our little ones...it's so much fun to read!  Kelly--I can't believe those pics of Ozzy--he looks like a little boy now!  And Amanda and Maeryn--I can't believe your LOs can stand all on their own.  Crazy!

 

Ellie is going to be 10 months on Monday...I literally can't believe it.  She has been so much more fun in the past few months.  Just like DH and I predicted, as soon she could do more things for herself, she became a much, much happier baby.  She sits up by herself, crawls, pulls herself up, transfers between pieces of furniture, and harasses my dog like crazy!  Poor guy...he's definitely become more gray since she came home from the hospital.  He is absolutely her favorite "person" in the house--she shrieks and giggles whenever he's around.

 

She's also so much more solid lately.  I'm not sure what she weighs now (she weighed 16.8lbs at 8.5 months), but she looooves to eat and packs away anything I give her.  We're on the slow march to giving up purees, since little Miss Independent is a big fan of self-feeding.

 

She's also obsessed with ceiling fans.  If she sees one, she will stop whatever she's doing, start reaching for it, and make these really funny sounds (I wish I could describe them...grunt isn't quite the right word for it.  More like an 90 year old man making noises when he is reaching for something.).  It's absolutely adorable.  love.gif


MaerynPearl's Avatar MaerynPearl 10:09 PM 06-25-2011

It's so funny to me... I mean it's not hard to remember that Mae was born at the end of a month everyone expected her to be born at the beginning of, but it's still so funny for yall to be talking about turning 10 months and Mae's not even 9 yet! (tomorrow!)


Kelly1101's Avatar Kelly1101 06:13 AM 06-26-2011


Got a camcorder?  This is the type of thing you should record, so that you can show them when they get older, lmao.

 

Ozzy is a big fan of ceiling fans (ha ha fan of fans) too.  He shrieks at them (his Happy shriek).

We do!  I actually used my phone to record her doing this the other night at the ceiling fan across the alley from our apartment and sent it to my sister.  She said she couldn't stop laughing.

 

I can't wait to break this video out when she brings her first boy/girl friend over.  Ha!  orngtongue.gif

Wow!!! Everyone is moving, moving, moving. Well, except Miss Genevieve...lol. She is now 10 months old and hasn't even started crawling....She has scooted backwards a few times. But I think it was accidental...lmao. 

 

 

I'm getting very sentimental and sad that her first birthday is fast approaching. PUT ON THE BRAKES!!! Is anyone else feeling this way? It may have to do with her being my last baby...but man... It's gone by way too fast. In a way, I'm happy she isn't bounding through her milestones. It keeps her babyish for longer :) 

 

Here's a picture of my sweet girl....
