We don't have any teeth here yet, but Micah seems to have been working on them for about two months. Every time I think "this must be it", it isn't...Still perfectly smooth, unbroken gums. I am really worried about the biting thing, but will be glad to have a reprieve from the fussing (that I have been blaming on the teeth). How did you handle biting?

Almost the same as Evan, except you can see the ridges of the teeth just waiting to break through. Neither of my other 2 teethed so long and so hard and so early. I really love that little toothless grin, but I'll be happy when he gets through this first tooth.

I know... It's so sad. Romi was born just a day after Micah. I can't believe 6 months have passed... So bittersweet. And that means that I go back to work in 6 mths.

I'm in Canada so we all get a year off for mat leave (paid). Otherwise there's no way I could afford it!! Good luck on your interview!

I am icredibly grateful to be a SAHM...we make enough to barely squeak by...and that's just fine by me. I work really hard at the budget, so that I don't have to go back to work. I thank God every night that we're able to do it. I feel for you mamas who have to go back to work. It must be heart-wrenching.

Oh that's too funny!


Sophia has one tooth on the bottom. I think I can feel it when she nurses, but maybe that's just my imagination.

She loves to be on the move. Rolling and scooting all over the floor. It's so funny because my secretary at work has a little girl who was born in March and she is non-mobile. She can sit really well and just stays there. Must be nice!

Sophia will be 6 months on Saturday. That is so crazy to think about. I'm just transitioning her into her 6-12 months clothes. I think she is getting clothes for Christmas which will actually be a good thing, because so many of the things are looking worn from her sisters wearing them.

Weight watchers has a program for nursing moms at least on the internet so it can be done.

Welcome to the new people! We love to read posts so post away!

He worked on his teeth forever, too. Well his tooth. Now he's working on the one next to it.

When he bit me I just pulled back, then switched sides since it hurt. I am sure there are better ways of dealing with it, but that's what I did.

Thankfully, he has been bite free all day today.

NAK

Exciting Annettemarie!!! I wish when I was kid free it was too do something exciting.

Ashton doesn't have any teeth yet but he will fool me into thinking one is cutting in. So you other mama's aren't alone
He is also scooting around. If he wants something he goes for it. Like some of the rest of you, I'm NOT ready for him to be mobile either but at the same time I kinda root for him. I know that doesn't make any sense.

Doudat - That is pretty cool that Romi ate broccoli for her first solids AND she fed it to herself!! Woo-Hoo!! Ash hasn't had anything yet but he did taste a lemon today. My BIL laughed because of the look on Ashton's face. He twisted it pretty good then wanted more. Oh and I am jealous that you get a year off for maternity leave. I think we get 6 weeks and I don't think it is a paid 6 weeks.

I remember Elijah biting me when his teeth came in. Oh it hurt but luckily he didn't make a habit of it.

Ok this post is kinda jumbled. I hope you all can make sense of it.

Mmmm, liam never bit me when his teeth came it, so I'm hoping it'll be the same with romi... But now you gals have me worried!! Romi has "bit" me quite a few times, and even without teeth it hurt! I know that they have to move their tongues out of the way to bite so they can't bite while drinking. I'll just have to get vigilant when she starts playing around after she's done drinking.

Velvet: I know, it really sucks that the US doesn't have a better mat leave. I don't know how they expect mamas to breastfeed when they have to go back to work full time.

sorry you are feeling so much anxiety. i was pretty confused about what to do with kaylo...but i guess i felt like if i was so confused and worried about it, i probably should not do them... it's hard to know--you just want to do what's best for your little ones. have you check out the book _Vaccinations_ by Aviva Jill Romm? It's got all sorts of good info in one place. I think it's overwhelming to look at info all over the place.

annettemarie-- you go mama! have fun!

a year mat leave would be great! well, i mean if i had a "real job" i waitress (and went back at 6 weeks by choice--it's only a couple nights a week at a swanky little spot ), grow veggies and craft. oh and nanny once a week. we have to live pretty simply though for me not to do any normal job.
i wish the u.s. had better parental and maternity leave.

we are headed away again this weekend. we are visiting dh's family and going to a wedding bash. it will be nice to get away except that it means paying a caretaker. we found a great one, but she's so great we pay her quite a bit to take care of the animals/milk the cow/etc. oh and i'm going to ikea for the first time! we don't have one around us, so i usually pick out things online and have my mom grab them when she comes out to visit. i'm a little nervous--i hope i don't go overboard...how much can fit in the back of a subaru forester??

Hi everyone. I've been dealing with plugged ducts in BOTH breasts at once over the past couple of days. At least I got it to go away but wow, did that hurt! I've had them before but only in one breast at a time. DS went one night without eating very well through the night... and boom, plugged the next day! It just kills me that I have such low supply with IGT -- yet, still get these stupid plugged ducts all the time.

I took lots of showers, used warm rice socks and lots of massage. I was afraid for a bit that it wouldn't go away and that it might turn in to mastitis but it started to clear up in 24 hours. Whew!

I've dealt with some anxiety about vaccinations on and off. So far we've decided not to do any at all. It is a really tough decision. PM if you wanna talk!

I've also worried that I shouldn't have accepted the Vitamin K shot but my MWs talked me into it. Did anyone else accept this?

That is what DS did too! He would get on his tummy and just flap his arms to the side and grunt and strain and just get plain mad. Now he gets way up on his hands and is working on getting his belly and legs off the bed. He still grunts and strains and gets plain mad. He is going to be something else when he is starts to really move!

That's just it though...Most people (at least in my area) don't expect you to breastfeed. Lately, I have started getting the "you're still doing that??" looks and round about comments....and he's only 6 months. What in the world are they going to say or do 3 months from now? Or, 6 months? Or, a year? (This is part of the reason I want to move...)

Thank you! It actually went really well. I have an appointment for a physical and drug test on Tuesday, and they have to do a background check. Pending all of that, the orientation starts on October 27th!! And the shifts they are hiring for are 4pm to midnight, so I won't miss too much of Micah's awake time.

I have been worrying about supply issues lately, especially since I am about to go back to work. It seems when Micah is eating that my breast is empty, but when he pulls off and I squeeze and a little comes out. He doesn't seem frustrated (but he has been fighting sleep lately, which doesn't help)...I'm sure stressing about it isn't going to help, but I am so worried about having to supplement. I don't want to have to, and I am sure I am getting ahead of myself, but NOTHING went the way I was trying with Micah's birth. I have a huge guilt complex going on about it (which no one IRL understands, because it's just "normal" here). I am worried that my borderline PPD will go full blown if something goes wrong with the BF -- it is the one thing I have clung to...:

I started out in a birthing center and moved to a hospital mid-hard labor via ambulance...I had not expected to have to go through "the list" because it is standard policy for the birthing center to NOT do those things. So, as I was going through all of this pain, stress, and trauma (this was not even in my alternative birth plan), I am having to go through the list of all the things that I don't want them to do...no Hep B, no antibiotic drops in the eyes, no circumcision, don't give a bottle, don't give a pacifier, wanted him in my room at ALL times (I didn't trust them to not do the things I didn't want them to do)...the ONE thing I forgot was the Vit K!! : So, yes, I did, but not necessarily willingly -- they didn't even ask...

i did because, even though i know all about it an alternatives, i felt that if by some chance something happened and she needed surgery it was best for her to have it... now they never needed surgery but its one of those what ifs to me, the shot is faster acting going straight to the blood then oral dose... any way i actually had to ask my mw to do it and she had to search her bag for it lol ( home birth)

i do have major anxiety over vaxs we selectivly/delay vax one vax at a time, which helps me a lot

I don't want to have to, and I am sure I am getting ahead of myself, but NOTHING went the way I was trying with Micah's birth. I have a huge guilt complex going on about it (which no one IRL understands, because it's just "normal" here). I am worried that my borderline PPD will go full blown if something goes wrong with the BF -- it is the one thing I have clung to...:
I went through supply issues when I went back to work, but I wanted to encourage you by saying even though I couldn't pump enough for him while I was gone I always had enough for him when I was home (he just nursed a ton!) If you have not started pumping yet I would reccomend taking fenugreek and pumping and freezing now so you can build your supply up as well as have a stash of milk if you have trouble pumping enough. I hope it goes wel for you!
