price range- how does $30 or 2-4 hours for the people with more creativity than money? Maybe that way more can participate.

I'm assigning names daisy chain style so the people who email early can get started but there can still be people added until the end, say March 31 midnight EST?

daisy chain style? Never heard of that expression

I looked at all the pictures but I don't have enough time to comment on them all, but beautiful babies!!! I can't believe we're so near to 1yr! Scary fast I tell ya...

Romi is sleeping badly still... I brought the pack&play up from the basement thinking we could maybe put her down to sleep in it next to our bed instead of her sandwiched between us. Last night, dh tried to put her down without swaddling her but she woke up 15minutes later in a panic... So we swaddled her. And she FREAKED when we tried to put her down in the pack&play. So back to square one.

Oh and her eczema patch on her chin is BAD. I'm gonna go buy emu oil and try tea tree oil as well. sigh.

Oh, question for pumping mamas, how much milk (as in ounces) do your babies drink in one sitting? Romi will be going to daycare in 2 months and I want her to have 1 mama's milk meal per day... I think I'll try goat milk for the other meals.

I'll have to start pumping to get a month's supply in the freezer...

hey guys! i'm totally in on the exchange- but i'm also sadddd that we're talking about it! wahh- not 1 year!!

I can't believe the stair climbing! ahhh! that's nuts- you know, we have a high number of babies that are walking 'early' in this group- I'd hate to be a new mom and have a 'normal' baby and worry about their development! : we're advanced!

i'm sad too!

i think zenon is a "normal" baby but i'm not worried at all--hearing about all the stair climbing and walking makes me glad that zenon is taking it slow it is crzy that so many babies in our ddc are early walkers though!

Hello All!! I have no time to go back and read the thread. I hardly ever have time to get on Mothering anymore.

I read this page and the one before.
I can't believe our babies are almost one!! Bittersweet.
Ashton can stand but isn't walking (not pushing it either!!) He climbs the stairs also. I don't know how scary it is for you other stairclimbing mamas but we have a straight run and it is kinda scary for me. Ashton is a little monkey.

Here is a pic of the 2 of them http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o...5/IMG_3706.jpg

I have a friend in labor right now and I'm antsy for some reason.

4-8 oz.

She starts with 4oz, but if still fussy then dh gives her one more bottle.

that's nice of you two... he has only made them for us--we told him he should make them to sell but he said they'd have to be expensive b/c of all the time involved.

wow, 10 seems so old... i can't believe how well i remember that birthday -- i was so excited to be "double digits"

In other news his new try it out night time diapers arrived (we're trying bamboo dream-eze fitteds to see how they work), and his new doll for his birthday arrived with them. It is tough finding a boy doll of any sort, but a soft boy doll is even harder, hopefully he'll like it.

Hi Mamas! Our internet has been down, so I just caught up on the thread. I love all of the pix.

Seamus had a major wheat reaction last week when we took him to the sitter, and we had to take him to the emergency room.

It depends on who's watching him. With R he could drink six ounces, but no one else can get him to take anything.

Welcome back Lunabelly!!

4-6oz seems to be the consensus. Ok, I'll have to get to work, the most I ever pumped was 3oz... :

I saw today that goatmilk is readily available in a few stores at the farmer's market, so I'll try that and hope for the best (I'm scared of eczema flare ups).

Let us know how the dream-ez work out for you
The BBH bamboo still fit romi, but I'm scared of the day when they wont. Those things are so darn absorbant, nothing compares!!

I don't actually know. So far only boobmilk and water for us.
Ion's had some sensitivities to tofu but not other soy products but I would hesitate to give him any one thing in largish amounts. Probably we'll try to alternate different milky things (soy, rice, oat, coconut, hemp, banana, almond). I don't know about how to give juices in a tooth-safe way. Are you supposed to just drink it all and not sip? Does that make sense?

Not easy to find boobmilk alternatives, is it?!!

We don't do juice here. Liam hasn't had any except for very special occasions, so I don't know about juice-giving! I thought the general guideline was no juice before 5?

I only pump .5 - 4oz at a time, but Abby seems to prefer 5-6 oz, so I pump at work and combine once I am home. right now I pump >1 oz o the way to work, 2-3 at lunch, and 2-3 on the way home. It usually totals 6-7 oz per day. Abby gets 1 bm bottle per day (5 oz) and 2 formula bottles (6 oz). she is at daycare from 8:30 am to 5 pm, but usually nurses at 6 am, 6 pm, 8 pm and all night.

oofdah, that's a lot of pumping!!! i am NOT jealous, i have a manual pump and i was soooo proud to get like .5-1 oz, and it only took like 2 hours. lol. what a joke. i would need to get a better pump if i got a job soon.

pumping mamas need to get MAJOR props... way to go for fillin' up the babies with liquid gold!
