I don't know if it is RX....it comes in the ostomy kits here, but I found the name online.  Google it, and maybe you can buy just a few to try it.

Julimummy, can you move the baby into another room?  If you aren't right in sight, she may well settle down sooner, and your movements won't wake her.  Other than that, you may just need to be firm,...

Um.....the pelvis on a 16 yr old is not necessarily at adult size.  This can cause problems and is one reason that younger moms are "risked out" of homebirth often.  Also, I would have doubts about...
