I agree. It seems strange to chide people on this thread for not choosing FAM/NFP when several of us have used it (in my case for a decade and a half!) and are ready for a change of pace for very...

Hang in there! Get help if you think you're having postpartum issues of any kind. But also be aware that it's completely normal to feel the way you do right now. I had my second child when my first...

We used FAM for fifteen years, which worked very well for us. We avoided conception except when we wanted a baby, and then we conceived right away. The third child was an "oops," though, partly due...

I have a copper IUD that was inserted at my 6-week checkup. That was a good way to go, because it didn't hurt and then I didn't have periods for months afterwards (because of breastfeeding). I did...

I had a needy almost-three-year-old when my second was born. My husband was also working constantly at the time and was not available to offer much help or support. (Also no family nearby.) Thank...

I have three kids, which is why I haven't been on here in ages. http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif But in our case the spacing is different -- the first two are 3 years...

I second the idea of more structure -- most people (not just kids!) benefit from a routine of some type. Unschooling can still be done within a routine schedule so that everyone knows what to expect...

My babies have all spit up a lot. They're all fine. If yours is jolly and growing well it just means he's filling his tummy a bit too full and something has to come back up. Like Dr. Sears says,...

If you're already scheduled for this course it's not likely to completely gross you out, right? (Or you wouldn't be taking it in the first place.) I assume you'd be wearing gloves and perhaps a mask...

I wouldn't worry at all; in fact, I don't think pumping and dumping is necessary either. The alcohol content of your milk is equal to or less than that of your blood (0.05% or so, probably). That's...

My experience has been that sleep breeds sleep. The more they sleep during the day, the happier they are while awake and the better they sleep at night. My LO spends several hours in my Sleepy Wrap...

Lots of babies change their pooping pattern around this time, having big blowouts and just skid marks in between. It sounds normal to me, especially if the poo is yellow and runny or seedy. My...

Wow, that really sounds difficult. There's really nothing that helps him stay asleep longer than a few minutes? Do you have a wrap carrier and have you tried walking with him in that? My dd likes to...

I don't think there's any reason you can't have one drink with a meal and then nurse the baby whenever they want it -- this is my general practice. But if you're actually seeking a buzz from...

I second the skin-to-skin contact and letting baby latch. It really worked for my dd3, who had some milk transfer issues and a tight latch. It also did wonders to just cheer me up in general,...

What do you mean by melodramatic? Is he any better when being worn? Does he nurse better in some positions than others?

No, usually night-nursing is not harmful at all. I've night-nursed my kids for at least 2 years each w/o any tooth decay at all. (In fact both older dds are cavity-free even now.)
