Laura, maybe he can hold the pump for you, and then wash it out when you are done? Let us know how the day goes...
Nicole, yikes, btdt too, my brother has a bad habit of doing stupid things.
Andy, hahaha, after my big cow experience yesterday, I've barely got 2 oz. from BOTH sides this morning. And to think I was going to try and get 6 oz again today. HAHAHAHA
Andy, we have a "corner bakery" machine, was the only one they carried at the dept. store we registered for the wedding. Is ok, haven't ruined bread yet, at least, and lotsa settings. Personally, I don't think Cuisinart (and probably Kitchenaid) makes a bad machine for ANYTHING, but I honestly don't know if they have bread makers.
Mary, I'd LOVE to come and visit. But yah, I doubt not anytime soon!
Annie, do you EVER stop? Crafty mama!
Annie, explain why blowing is bad... I get the 1-2-3 bit, we did that with all the kids when I taught lessons, but what's blowing do besides piss off Lauren?
Lori, hugs and enjoy this new babe!
Teeth: last night I wrapped some ice in a washcloth and that worked for a few minutes. Need to find the teether toys we have SOMEWHERE.
Heidi, how does babe fare with the chlorine? Dry or itchy? Or just fine?
Karen, I think it's that long graceful neck that Luka has, getting the chin off the babe makes them age quickly!
Laura, sounds like the day is going pretty well!
Karen, yah, just an idea, eggs, wheat, corn for starters, those seem to make skin problems while dairy, soy, make bum rash... we're backing off wheat for 10 days to see if that helps.
Kathy, yah, the pedi said it was also cradle cap stuff, but the thing I've found with cc is that it's USUALLY related to dairy or another allergy! Not always, but usually. So it went away TOTALLY when I was on the turkey diet, and came back this week, after starting wheat and corn. Going to figure it out!!
And how'd you get babe on back? Is that just the regular moby carry done on back? Do you have dh help or can you do it alone? I had the gal at the grocery store tell me that I was going to suffocate Lauren when I had her in the wrap, aaah gotta love it!
Going to try and pump a bit more. Left Lauren in bed with dh, all sleepy, and then the dog had to make noise. Woke dh enough to get him to try to shh her back to sleep, and it must have worked, as it's quiet now.
