Well, things here are good. Grant wants to eat all day long!! I feel like my body can't keep up. He's always starving, making me feel like I'm not giving him enough food. Mama's guilt I guess! LOL

We have an appt. for him to see the Ped GI on the 12th because he has symptoms of reflux and has a really hard time pooping. He won't go for days (which I know can be normal for BF babies) BUT you can just tell he has to go and it's just stuck. He grunts and grunts until I have to be mama kitty and help stimulate him to go. I feel so bad for him...

DD is doing better, just not listening. I must be a push-over. Nothing in life has ever (or probably ever will) listen to me! That includes my pets and now my kid(s). What the heck is wrong with me?

All in all, things are smoother than I expected them to be. Hooray!

If I don't post more, hope everyone has a great remainder of the week and a safe 4th of July!!

i'm amazed you made it this long w/out doing this!

it's very rare that i'm in the bathroom alone. my 2 year old still asks to nurse sometimes when i'm trying to pee. and sometimes it's just easier to nurse her than negotiate with her so i do it.

OMG! Me too. Except my mom's dog and my MIL's dog listen to me but only because my mom's dog is a gentle, obedient Sheltie. My MIL's dog (a really disobedient spoiled Boston Terrier) only listens to me when I get "that tone" and possibly because I'm a Beeyitch and I think he's scared I'll eat him or something.

When we get a dog, I totally want a Sheltie since they are people-pleasers. At least that way someone in the house will listen to me since the kids don't and neither does the cat.

I can't believe the 4th is less than a week away!

Yeah, I'm pretty sure dd1 was only a few weeks old the first time I had to nurse while pooping. I remember thinking that this was a situation I had never anticipated!

Seriously, how is this possible? I can only nurse with two hands (and a couple of pillows, ideally). I can't imagine how you even walk while nursing, let alone do anything else!

I don't think I have been to the bathroom by myself since my son was born almost 7 years ago. HAHAHA. That is a bit of an exageration but not by much. My 2 yo (who comes in every time if I don't want her screaming and banging on the door not condusive to a BM) insist on bringing me my mama pads and helping me snap them on. Hopefully this won't scar her for life.
NYCVeg- It just takes alot of practise I even do laundry and vaccum etc. while nursing. Necessity is the mother of invention?

I had to do that once too Kat... we had eaten out for lunch and in the middle of nursing dd I had that awful gaseous feeling and had to run to the bathroom with the runs. I walked fast towards to the bathroom while simultaneously trying not to go in my pants, nursing dd and nudging the bouncy seat to the bathroom doorway so that I could lay her down to wipe when I was done. :

I HAVE to sit or use 2 hands to nurse - one to hold the babe and one to hold my GIANT boob - which once upon a time was a perky big boob, but has now decided pont itself at my toes.

Ahem. A boob job is defintely in order after I am done nursing DS.:

So just like that, DS changed! Today - he had HUGE growth -

•he didn't cry in the car - a MIRACLE
•he sat in his bouncy chair while we cleaned DD's room and read stories.
• he sat in it again while I bathed DD and actually blow dried her hair!
•he took a nap in his AMBY and NOT on me! for 40 minutes! And I laid him down and he just fell asleep.
•I laid him down again very sleepy but awake in his amby at 7:30 and after 30 minutes of my bouncing him, he fell into a deep sleep - with no tears.

WOW. That's all I can say. I hope it keeps up!!!

DD has also been wonderful - an angel. She only had 3 or 4 emotional 4 year old outbursts today.

Days like this are just heaven.

Ahhhh, the 1st time I went to the loo while wearing my babe, good times... :

Max I'm glad things are settling down for you guys. Sounds exhausting!

Kristina my heart just melts when DS smiles at me.

Amy DS is trying his hardest to get his roll on. Gosh, already!

Erin I have been feeling the trifold lately as well. My guy is such a super pooper though. When he goes, which is now every other day, it's usally a doozy and tends to escape the PF no matter what fold I'm using. Though the Prowrap and the fact that his poop has thickened up now keeps everything inside. Ahhh, I love discussing my babe's poo, yep, I'm a mama!

Amanda, seems like things are getting better little by little?

Ouch Corina : , I hope you're feeling better. And I find that the twist is actually better for the rash that Milky kept getting on his inner thigh. I try and do lots o' air time for the booty. He loves it, although he usually pees on me at least once. I tend to catch the poops, yay! I suppose this is super lazy, EC by default that we're doing.

Taisa my wee chunkster was waking up every 3 or 4 hours like clockwork in the first few weeks. I could've set an alarm by him! Now he sleeps 4 and 5 hours at a time when he finally goes down for the night, anywhere between 10 PM and 12 AM. He nurses a couple of times a night and gets a diaper change or two.

(Back to finish my post. Had to give my punkin' a bath, the nursies and then put him to sleep. )

Cheryl Sayon's like that the majority of the time. Looooves to be held, especially for sleeping. Just more yayness for my wrap.

Erika, welcome to MDC! : I hope you've been enjoying. Maybe you guys will get a bit of relief from the heat soon. We enjoyed a relatively mild day here in the A. for most of the day. Even got to open the windows and patio door!

Michelle you guys are so having another one in a few years. I just know these things.

KRS I hope Eli's congestion is getting better. Receding hairline, too cute.

I'm sending you big, huge, giant hugs andflipping.

Yep Angela, I'm loving the less pooping more sleeping.

Yay Happypants! It's so good to see that you and Finn are doing well!
I'm all about my Prowraps but I'd like to try the SWWs.

Momto1 I hope your little one gets to feeling better.

Kat you guys keep enjoying your fun in the sun. It's hot as Hades here so we usually don't leave the house between 11 or 12 and 5 or 6.

Anakna4 I'm sure your DD won't be scarred. If anything she'll have the mama pads completely down by the time she needs them.

I think that's everybody. I'm sure DH wants to do some pokering so I will be back.

hmm- all babies are so different huh? that's a late night for you, and I am really hoping that 4-5 hours of sleep at a time is somewhere in our not-too-distant-future!... last night Ari was up every hour to eat... i think it must be a growth spurt... he's been awake a ton today ( getting so fun and smiley!) so i've got my fingers crossed on some more sleep tonight! Can't wait for dh to be done work (he's a teacher) so he can continue the morning baby hangout routine they've been having on weekends.

I seem to be one of the few mamas here with a skinny babe. He's 10 lbs (up from 6lbs 12, so gaining well) but thats all in length... he's also outgrowing the 0-3 month sleepers, (but not the onesies), but the 3-6 month ones are so baggy! I keep expecting him to chunk up cause i was the queen-o'-chunk as a baby, but he just keeps getting loooonger!

And about the bikini fold- i had a major blowout today (the elimination adventures continue) - what am I doing wrong?

Nope...I've got a wee one as well. She was born at 6 lbs 4 oz, was 8 lbs, 5.5 ounces when she was weighed last Friday (at 4.5 weeks). She's gaining well, but still so teensy--it's astonishing to me that at 5 weeks, she's still smaller than many newborns! We actually had to get a few preemie outfits for her first couple of weeks, and she still doesn't fit into some of her 0-3 clothes (pants, some of the Gao stuff).

Sigh...whenever we think things are getting better, they take a turn for the worse. Yesterday was HORRIFIC. We think dd is just really uncomfortable from reflux. Her ped started her on Prevacid, but getting her to keep the medicine down is close to impossible, so we have no idea how much she's actually getting.

hmmm... i know for us the bikini just recently, (maybe a week or so ago?) started working well here. the chunking up of ds and now the change in his poo to a more peanut butter like consistency i think helped.

he's always pooped large amounts generally so with the runny poo we were getting blowouts a lot. nowadays all the poo doesn't always stay in the dipe but it does stay in the wrap.

is ari's poo still good and runny? if so i found those pretty hard to contain maybe half the time with all kinds of folds. made me feel like i had no idea what i was doing at first. : also i found that when milky's little legs were still super skinny that made it easier for poo to escape.

i'd be inclined to think you're doing it right it's just that ari's poop wants to be free right now. what kinds of covers are you using?

The bikini fold works well for us, but Audrey does have little fat rolls forming so maybe that's why. Are you using snappi or pins to keep it closed? We have less leaking with the bikini than we do with angel fold but I'm sure that baby's shape makes a difference too.

Y'all have me curious how big Audrey is now. She was up to 8lb 2oz at her two week check up (7lb 6oz at birth) but that's been a month. We don't have a WBC for almost 3 weeks. I'll have to weigh us at MIL's house. Awww, she's cooing and smiling at me right now. : Last night she smiled at me for my mom to see and I was sniffling. Ah, motherhood has made me so much more emotional than I used to be. Hard to be reserved around children I guess.

Okay, I better get off here, she's getting squirmy and hard to hold now.

Speaking of poop, we had quite a morning. I took dd out for a walk in her stroller...she was quite content for about 20 minutes and then started WAILING. I gave it a minute or two (sometimes she gives a few yells right before she falls asleep--as though she's so tired she can't take it), then picked her up...poop everywhere! Soaked through her clothes, running down her leg (and my arm), all over the car seat (which I don't know how to clean). I walked her home like this, with her over my shoulder, dripping poop, and me pushing the stroller with one hand. We got home and had a bath.

I just have to say that this thread has been a bit of a lifeline for me lately. It's just so great to hear about other people's days that are filled with the minute details of getting to know a new baby. I have lots of supportive friends, but it's hard to relay my day to day activities to anyone besides my mom or DH. We went to a nice restraunt with DHs boss the other night and they asked me what I'd done that day in a polite, conversational way.

.....uuuuuhhhhhhh......I struggled not to describe every detail of our volcanic spit up morning and how unusual it was for her.

Amanda-that sounds funny/horrible/hilarious! You are doing such a good job with your little gal, hang in there!

andiflipping-hugs to you, mama

and to all those who can use the potwhile nursing

thanks for your response mamacats ... Ya- Ari still has runny poo- I'm looking forward to the poo change- though he has stopped pooping at night now ... and by reading your responses I can tell that I used the term "blowout" wrong... he didn't get poop outside his cover, just filled the whole darn cover up... we use bummies covers and they work pretty well. Its just that with the newspaper fold we just get a little poo on the edge of the cover now and then, and with the bikini we got the full load! I think y'all are probably right about thigh size though- its hard to get the diapers tight around those skinny legs and he hates getting a diaper put on (he wishes I would figure out ECing soon so he can be bare bottomed all day long) so he's really squirmy. Maybe I'll just wait on the bikini till he gets a few more rolls

And I second mamatheart's comment about this thread being a lifeline... no matter how great friends and family are, not many people would give me such detailed responses about my baby's poo!- nor would I be quite as inclined to soak up the details of their days the way I do with you mamas!

NYCVeg ~ I'm sorry to hear you had such a rough day... hopefully the meds work for your little one and hugs in the meantime.

Ahhhh.... poo!

Kirsten only poops every three days or so. Guess I'm lucky, but I worry constantly that she's not getting enough to eat. If it's not one thing it's another.

Summertime is dragging me down. It's so hot and humid here, I can't take the baby outside during the day. The other two are bored out of their trees, inside all day. If I have to play another second of "cars" I may scream! I've been forcing my 4yo to nap, just to break up the afternoon. Of course, then he's up until 10:00pm. No win.

When I hear so many of you talk about the heat I am so thankful I live in Maine, where I don't think it's topped 80 more that twice this summer. I am miserable in heat and I hate wearing shorts, so this suits me well!

I agree that this thread is wonderful. My DH teases me a little about the time I spend here, especially since I have several friends with babies born in the past 2 months, but I'm not close enough to any of them to get minute details this frequently! And no one else wants to hear how excited I am that Phoebe slept for SEVEN HOURS last night! AND I didn't wake up soaked in milk like I usually do after 5-6 hours!

Happy Thursday mamas!! My week is going well, despite the fact that DH has been all but one day. He is a very lucky man, he get's LOT'S of perks with his work, and has been golfing, and fishing all week with clients. He sucks.: Today has been a crazy day, I feel overwhelmed with the daycare kids today, it's just been so crazy, and Alayna has been funky with nursing today, not sure what's up with that. She screams when she nurses on my right side, any ideas??

Ecoteat- I soooo badly want to visit Maine! DH and I always talk about making an anniversary trip up there someday.

Jaygee- Alayna poops little bits all day long, very different from my other two!

taimarie- I think Alayna has actually only had one or two blowouts so far. My other two were blowouters every diaper change!!

momatheart- I'll third that one! I don't have many(actually no) crunchy friends to chat with, except my LLL mamas, but I don't get to see them very often.

NYCVeg- Just want to send out some

Busybusymomma- What is the bikini fold? I knew to this whole cloth dipaering thing!

Mamacatsbaby- Aren't those smiles the best??!!!

Luckylady- Woohoo!!!!!! What a wonderful day!!!!!!!!!!!

Anakna4- Too funny about the pads! One day when I was putting on a disposable pad (one of those huge ones, my cloth pads were getting washed)
Rachel said, "holy cow mom, that things ginormous!!)


Kat- That is one thing I haven't done yet!! Although I have changed poopy diapers while slinging!!

momto1and1ontheway- Good luck with the doc's appt. DD#2 had relux, but not too severe, qw tried Prilosec, Zantac, etc. But I never noticed any different=ce. SHe started to grow out of it by 4-5 months. Even though now she still will have some episodes of heartburn.

Ok, I'm off, have a wonderful 4th of July everyone!!!!!!!!

Busy Mama to three beautiful girls and loving wife to my hubby

Oh, how I miss Maine, and New England in general. I went to college in Maine (Colby) and my whole family lives in New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Sigh..... it's in the 90s here again today.

Congrats on the great night's sleep too. I get about 3 straight hours a night and am happy with that !

Ugh...dd ate ALL day today. 35-40 minutes at a time, then hungry an hour later. She ate herself sick, in fact, and threw up all over me (it's been quite a day for excrement of all kinds). Is this typical of reflux?

Oh Amanda. I'm sure you're thinking if it's not one thing it's another. I hope your little one's reflux starts getting better soon. You are one strong mama, keep it up! And that image of you guys walking home all pooped up did make me .

Hmmm... I dunno what could be up with that screaming when you offer the right side Sydnee. DS seems to favor my left side more. Who knows what goes on in their little heads?

I agree. It's so nice to come here and see what everyone is up to. I definitely love my May Mamas! :

Oh, here's the bikini twist.

I've lived in Atlanta for most of my life except for the year and a half stint that DH and I were in his home state of WI. I loved the summer, breezy, hot yet not suffocatingly so. Lots of festivals. But the winter. : I'd never experienced anything like that and was completely out of my element so to speak. Nope, the trade off is too great, I'll have no part of it.

Looks like we were sort of x-posting!

I don't know if that's typical of reflux but in the first few weeks due to my OAL issues and tons o' milk DS would throw up sometimes after eating. Have you checked out the Reflux Mamas thread in Life With A Babe Amanda?

not corina but had mastitis...

a disposable diaper soaked in the hottest water you can stand makes a great compress.

find any/all lumps and massage them out

vit c

rest, rest, rest

nurse/ pump often and drain the breast

i'll post more if i think of it.
