I've been doing Pilates to rehab my body with a trainer at my chrio. Boy did I get weak during this pregnancy! Its making me feel a lot better, too.

Ihave to nurse using a sns & donor milk since I have insufficent glandular tissue. Even tsking Domperidone didn't increase my supply more than 1 oz in 24 hour period. :

It can be frustrating getting her latched, especialy since she likes to pop off all the time! She either gets the nipple or the tube - ergh!

I'm having some ppd issues with not lactating - considering prozac.

For those wanting to intro bottles - we were recommended the new Breast flow by the first years by our LC. We havent had any nipple confusion issues.

Hugs to you Mama's feeling Bluesy... I have been crying a lot but also laughing a lot. Obvious hormonal swinging going on. Take good care of your sweet selves!

I had this whole plan for doing some intense Shaolin get-my-ass-back-into shape pp training plan, but with healing the tear I had I have done nothing of the kind. Just going for walks and dancing a bit. Now that my yoni is healed up it feels safe to bring in some yoga and weight training, but I feel like I need to be way gentle on my body. I know breastfeeding uses up so many calories that it helps many women lose baby fat, but I just have never been to sedentary in my whole life! I am used to lots of activity, but now I spend most of my time sitting around nursing or writing (or chillin out on MDC ) ANd my appetite is thru the roof! AH What's a girl to do??

speaking of haircut, i need one badly!! my husband has a co-worker whose wife works at a local salon & she's offered to come here & cut my hair next week. isn't that sweet? even though ezra took a few ounces of bm from a bottle, i'm not quite ready to leave him for an extended period of time yet. i would be a total stress ball! maybe when he's a couple months old (as opposed to only a couple weeks).
Okay I might not have a clue what I am takling about since I have not used bottles since my 15 year old was about 6 months old but maybe he would take the bottle better if someone else gave it too him. That is our game plan for Maggie. She has to have a swallow test and they want us to give her a bottle to mix the solution in. I am not going to give it to her, my husband will.

My mother instituted "quiet time" when we were too old for naps and I think it's a great idea. We were expected to go find something quiet to do in our rooms for an hour, wether it be nap, play quietly, read or listen to music.

I took DD by myself yesterday to Costco and thought THAT was an accomplishment! I can't imagine taking 5! I put her in the meitai and she slept until we got in line to pay and then she started to cry. Luckily she quit when it was our turn to pay.

Does his skin get dry even if there's no soap? DD also loves the water and I often take her in the tub or bath before bed for the soothing warm water but only use soap once or twice a week on her head and bum.

Oh right, bottle feeding.. I knew I forgot a topic.
Yes, we're going to start working on that as well. I've been warned that waiting 6 weeks or longer can make it really difficult, but then you have to balance that with the possibility of nipple confusion :

lizzyq...i LOVE that pic of you & your little one in the bathtub! you look beautiful & he is so adorable.

ezra was super alert for his first bath. his eyes were wide open & he just looked around. we took a bath together & i filled it up all the way so he rested on my legs. i also spent quite a bit of time floating him with my hands behind his head & back & his little legs went limp. he was so entranced!

i was just thinking about some extra physical activity, too (even though i'm not a "worker-outer"....but i am a mover & a shaker). i'm still bleeding a bit, though, and i defintely notice an increase when i don't rest enough. plus, i still have that weird lower abdominal muscle achiness/soreness so i'm nervous about overdoing it. my belly is so flabby after this third babe, though. my abs really went to the wayside! i guess i should start with some nice brisk walks & go from there.

They did really well, though I did end up with Sam in the carrier, Emily in the cart seat, 2 in the basket of the cart and only the oldest walking (was too close to naptime by the time I made it out of the house ). I got a lot of compliments from the old people who shop in the middle of the afternoon and only 1 "You've got your hands full." which is probably a lowest # record since #3 came along.
you RAWK!!!! i panic at the idea of leaving the house with both babes

I just love how relaxed she looks. We had gone for a hike and I was sitting with her and the sling in my lap.

I have that same tub. I used it for dd1, too. I love it. It was especially awesome when dd1 got a little bit bigger and I could put her in the tub on the floor of the shower while I took a shower at the same time!

OMG, you are supermama!!! I haven't even braved the store with two kiddos yet. I've been to the park and a few appointments, but not the store. I'm scared. But now you've inspired me...if you can do it with 5, I can certainly do it with 2!

I didnt have time to read much, but I wanted to join in and say, "Hi!"

Alivia Anna is sleeping four hour stretches at night. I'm pretty sure that getting enough sleep is the ultimate ppd cure/prevention.

Yesterday she pooped all over her auntie during a diaper change. I wish I had a photo of the look on my sister's face--it's going to be a while before my babies have cousins to play with.

I'm doing a corn-free diet for my own peace of mind since my son had such bad colic due to his corn allergy. In a couple weeks, I'll try something w/ corn and see how she does. : she doesn't have allergies.

MommyTeesa, I have the same baby tub and I absolutely love it, although the mesh thingy is a waste of time after their done w/ sponge baths. My favorite thing about it is that it fits horizontally across my bathtub so baby can bathe in the little tub while I soak in a bubble bath below.

I'm sorry your going through this

I've had reocuring mastitis with each of my kids I get it about every 4-6 weeks and it seems to come on for no reason everytime I get sick I want to quit nursing

I'm taking homeopathics to prevent it so we'll see I've had 3 plugged ducts but none of them have turned into mastitis so I have my fingers crossed

Try tapping on the tub like a heartbeat, DD was SO cute listening to it! Talk about entranced!

We had projectile poop one day, a poop that shot out with a baby fart and it went a good 18 inches! Amazing.

how did everyone elses babes do with their first baths?
Cute! We gave Raven her first bath a couple days ago, but i kind of regret it because it loosened up some scabbing on her bellybutton and she bled like crazy for the next couple days. Of course it upset me 10x more than her.

Yipes, a few health probs. over the weekend around here, huh? I had a plugged duct or the beginnings of mastitis or something over the weekend... really high fever, chills, sore breasts, etc. but treated it at home as well.

Does anyone have a baby that spits up, like, a LOT? My baby seems to always be spitting up, but she's gaining weight and having seemingly sufficient bowel movements so... midwife says it's nothing to worry about. Also, does anyone know what it means when a baby is bringing its knees up and sort of writhing like... is this tummy pain or gas or..? :

DS was/is and it's getting much better now that he's almost 5 weeks. He was back up to his birth weight at 9 days, that's all I know about his weight, although I know he's bigger. Just an immature GI tract/system and stomach muscles? I'd guess the writing is gas pain. DS has done some straining, which concerns me a bit. i am cutting out obvious dairy ...

She is so cute!

It seams Sebastian spits up every time he eats. He is also gaining weight (at his 2 week appt he was 7 lbs 11 oz, one pound heavier than birth weight!) so I am not to worried. Just worried for my furniture..

About 3 or 4 issues ago Mothering magazine did a article on reoccuring mastitis. It was very informative.

re: mastitis... try taking a lecithin supplement. I did this when I had recurrent plugged ducts shortly after DS1 was born.

Also, check out kellymom's page on this topic for other ideas.

Thanks ladies for the healing vibes I am feeling a bit better today, I have been taking Belladonna to fight this crappy thing! It makes me really miserable and sad I am going to try that supplement if I get it again, it sucks!

Does any of your little ones have a witching hour? Cecis if from 7-9, she just cries for no reason that I can see, I feed her, change her, rock her, hold her, sling her and other things and she keeps crying until she falls asleep. Do any of your babes do that?

We are going camping this weekend so I am hoping I am 100% by then!

We are going camping this weekend so I am hoping I am 100% by then!
Glad you are feeling better!

Nic's been cranky more, not just in the evening - reaching that "6 week peak" of fussiness?

yeah, ezra is fussy in the evenings. i remember the girls being like that, too. it's nurse-o-rama from 5pm - bedtime! last evening he had a HUGE sucking need. everytime i took him off the breast (asleep) he cried & frantically looked to latch back on. my mom took him for a while & managed to calm him down....with a pacifier!? i really didn't want him to take a paci but broke down & bought one the last time my mom was here because she really wanted to be able to soothe him. well, it didn't work last week but obviously she wasn't going to give up. i'm really not upset about it. my nips were seriously sore last night!

so slingin'mom...you're going camping? tent camping? with a newborn? i suppose after 5 kids, anything seems possible, eh? good luck!

i'm sorry to hear about all of you suffering from mastitis & other complications. i truly hope you're able to take it easy & enjoy your babies in the midst of the craziness....

Akasha is more fussy than usual in the evenings too... only a few nights was it really bad though, and whoa! that gave me a taste of how bad it can be and I since have been thanking my lucky stars to have such a mellow babe! I'd love to hear about the camping too- how exactly doea that work w/ a little one?

Ceci has been really fussy today as well, I wonder what is going on with her? She was so content before and now she is so very crabby...LOL!

Camping is fun We have a camper, so its not that bad at all, we also have a seasonal campsite so we don't have to pack/unpack and stuff like that. All the kids love camping and Ceci loves being outside in the fresh air, my sling works great for walking around the campground but I also bring my stroller, cause she likes to be out sometimes. We all love it, its great!
