Finally out of "I'm Pregnant"! Yaaaaaay!<br><br>
Charlie is a month old now, I can't believe it! He weighed 9 lbs, 6 oz at his one month appt yesterday. (I also can't believe that I haven't finished unpacking my suitcase from the hospital or writing his birth story!)<br><br>
This is a time of learning new skills and abilities, that's for sure. Today I worked on the skill of shaving my legs with one hand while the baby used the pinky on my other hand as a pacifier. Also while singing "3 is a Magic Number" to him and thinking through when to start defrosting the preprepared food I bought for Christmas dinner.<br><br>
Not bad for someone who hasn't slept more than 3 hours at a stretch in a month, I think!<br><br>
I cut dairy out of my diet a week ago and the amount of gas Charlie passes has gone down quite a bit. He still has mild Evening Fussies but I'd say it's no big deal at all.<br><br>
As of last night... we're sexually active again. I love the feeling of slowly regaining my prepregnancy self. And hoo boy, MERRY Christmas to us.<br><br>
So how's it going with all of you, mamas?

I think Julian has an allergy to something in my milk <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
He's not even two weeks old and his face has broken out, as well as his shoulders, neck, chest and up into his hair line. He even has some on his ears and eyelids.<br><br>
I read in my Dr Sears baby book that at around 3-4 weeks it is normal for babies to get some "baby acne" but then he goes on to say that if they come earlier and appear where they are it can be an allergy. I guess I will cut out Dairy from my diet and see what happens. I will really miss milk. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Other then water its all I drink.<br><br>
Does anyone have any experience with this? I think i'll call my midwives the day after christmas and see what they think. I'd hate to be hurting him and not knowing it.

I cant believe willow is going to be a month old in a few days... seems like yesterday! It has definately been an adjustment around here! Kyla is such an awesome big sister and such a help... which is such a relief. I thought for sure she would be jealous and difficult cause she required SO much attention before the baby... but it actually has been quite the opposite! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> Heck she is even goes to bed by herself now, LOL.<br><br>
All in all things are going great with the baby! She nurses constantly and still sleeps a TON. She only wakes up maybe twice at night to nurse so we are getting plenty of sleep so far. We had their christmas pictures taken together today! <a href="http://www.girlwomangoddess.com/gallery/christmas2004" target="_blank">http://www.girlwomangoddess.com/gallery/christmas2004</a> not too much of an ordeal <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Happy Holidays to everyone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Wow, Life with a Babe!! What a kick! My dd is 1 month old today. It really does feel like I just brought her home from the hospital yesterday. She's my firstborn, but does it go so fast with all babies? Although she just started to fit into her 0-3 month clothes about a week ago. :LOL I'm bouncing back and forth between Nov. and Dec. threads. She a Nov. baby, but I just got so comfy with Dec. (even though I didn't post very often. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">. Her edd was 12/2/04).<br><br>
Oh, and to share a triumphant moment (and a first), I had the pleasure of dressing myself, dd, and ds (who's visiting for the holidays) all by myself for the first time today. And I did it all in 10 minutes (I used to take 30 minutes just to get myself ready to go out, never mind the 3-year-old)! I didn't know I could tie shoes with one hand and nurse at the same time. The things you discover with kids...<br><br>
My mother bought us a crib for dd. I think it was a hint. She's not so big on AP. "Carrying her all the time and sleeping in the same bed'll spoil her!" Yeah, mom's one of those folks. She asked me to try letting dd sleep in the crib for a while and see if I like it. I just put her in it an hour ago for the first time... and I HATE it!! But I'm trying to wait for her to wake up on her own before I take her out. At least that way I can say I tried. I think we'll take it apart and turn it into a toddler bed for when she's older.<br><br>
Sorry for the rambling post! I haven't had the chance to go out and be social since dd arrived. If it weren't for MDC, I don't know what I'd do. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rocks.jpg" style="border:0px solid;" title="mdc rocks">

Well, it's nice to be here! Naomi is just four days old today <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. I just finished writing her birth story last night, <a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=229800" target="_blank">here it is</a> if you're interested.<br><br>
She's sleeping in the sling right now. It is the first time we're using it and she really seems to like it (my other kids didn't). I have it up pretty high and she seems really comfy. She's quite a calm child, which I'm very happy about. So quiet it is hard to believe she's real sometimes.<br><br>
DH went back to work today. They're offering him overtime, which is actually close to double-time for him, and we're doing so well I didn't see the point in his staying home again.<br><br>
My mom comes in tonight, she's bringing my younger brother with her. They're only staying for four days - but we have a two-bedroom apartment here, it isn't like we've got tons of extra space, and I'm not sure whether I'm looking forward to it or not. My mom tends to try to 'help' by 'reorganizing' things, and she doesn't do it well at all (ends up confusing the living crud out of us, and we LIKE where we have our plates, thanks - if you REALLY wanted to help, you'd scrub the peanut butter out of the carpet...).<br><br>
But my sister is coming on the first, and staying for two weeks. We already know we like having her here (she stayed here all summer), and she tends to do stuff that actually helps.<br><br>
Thankfully my and DH's families are very supportive of AP practices (DH and I were both raised in very AP, mostly-NFL families) so we don't really get any flak about, well, anything. MIL just doesn't get our not needing plastic junk, but she hasn't pulled anything funny like trying to get us a crib or anything (never used one herself). The only weird thing she does is refer to nursing as "drinking" which drives me NUTS because to me, drinking implies insufficiency. Her whole family actually thinks I'm weird because we don't supplement AT ALL, and I'm sure the whole "drinking" thing plays right into their mindset. I haven't decided whether it drives me nuts enough that I'll say anything, though.<br><br>
CUTE pictures mama2kyla!<br><br>
Shalena, I needed to cut dairy out of my diet with my daughter. Luckily I've never been a milk fan, but she was so sensitive I needed to lay off on the cheese - I like cheese. I'm not sure what you mean by "broken out" but is there a possibility of heat rash? I made that mistake with DS. We lived in Hawaii at the time and I overdressed him a couple of days, and quite the rash emerged.

Oh yay! Here we are!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
Mama2kyla- Your DDs are so cute!!! I am glad kyla has been adjusting well, Lily has been doing great too!<br><br>
Shalena- Both of mine had little white heads when they were newborns. Lily didn't get then for a couple weeks after she was born, and Aurora got them right away. Lily got them only on her face, and Aurora got them all over. I'm not sure about having a huge amount of them, but I know some is normal. If it concerns you, call your midwife. It never hurts to ask (and it does hurt to worry!).<br><br>
Heehee... our family isn't into AP or NFL at all. They all think we're crazy. But since we live so far away, they don't say anything about it. They know we won't call them if they harass us too much!<br><br>
Oh yeah, speaking of going back to normal activities... I trimmed the other day! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"> Without the belly in the way I saw how INCREDIBLY long my pubs got during the pregnancy and I was shocked. Bless DP, he is a BRAVE man! I only used scissors this time, but soon...BZZZZZZ! LOL After I had DD1 I wanted nothing to do with DP sexually, I had to force myself to have sex with him 2 months after she was born. But this time I can't wait until the bleeding stops! I want him bad!<br><br>
Glad to see you all over here... it makes me cringe clicking on the "I'm pregnant" section!<br><br>
PS... what do you do when the front carrier (Bjorn) and the sling (pouch style) both kill your back? She only weighs 8 lbs. and I'm already achy!

Well, the holidays were fun but I'm glad they're over. I don't really have energy for anyone but dh and Charlie these days, so putting on a dinner for MIL really took it out of me.<br><br>
Now, I know she's Charlie's grandmother, but I find it VERY difficult to share him with her! She keeps touching, touching, touching him--and it feels the same as if she was touching me without permission. It makes me very uncomfortable. She doesn't notice when I move away or say things like, "Oh, he's sleeping now" or "I'll do that" (when she cleans his face!) I don't think I'm being very reasonable about this, but that's how it feels to me. I'm a real mama bear. Grrr.<br><br>
And the gifts she gave him were just a bunch of junk. Most of it is already in a yard sale box. We don't have the kind of relationship where I would give her direction about what kinds of gifts we like. Dh and I have decided to thank her graciously for everything and not even try--she wouldn't "get it" in a million years, anyway. (No internal crap detector, to begin with.)<br><br>
We're planning on moving elsewhere in a year and a half and frankly, I'm looking forward to being someplace with no relatives from either of our families. Among all of our relatives I only like one of my brothers and his wife enough to actually want to be in physical proximity to them--and that's not likely to ever be the case.<br><br>
Cranky me.

Niki - your mom sounds like my mom :LOL<br><br>
Deirdre - about the carrier.. it could just be that you are not used to using those muscles! i would carry her around in one or the other in small increments of time. It took me a few days for my back to get used to using the pouch/sling this time around... tho I have never been able to use a baby bjorn without my back hurting. But now that we have been using our slings for a while I can carry her around in it for up to 2 hours without really feeling uncomfortable <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Shalena,<br>
Max got those a few days after he was born and they cleared up in about a week. Katie got them later, at like 1 month and they lasted longer.<br><br>
Deirdre,<br>
I'm feeling the same way about sex. Last time, it took forever to get my drive back, but I'm already waiting for the bleeding to stop because I want to GIO (get it on :LOL) I guess it's because this birth was less traumatic physically <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"><br><br>
Happy 1 month to Charlie!!! I can't believe Max will be 3 weeks tomorrow. I was expecting him to be closer to 3 days at this point :LOL<br><br>
SamImNot,<br>
Sorry you're getting crap about the co-sleeping. Funnily enough, nobody said much when they found out we were cosleeping with dd, but this time everybody seems so surprised that Max is sharing our bed. Like we'd have the three of us nice and cozy in the big bed and stick him in another room in a crib? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"><br><br>
Niki,<br>
I hope it goes well with your mom's visit and she doesn't create too much chaos with her reorganizing!<br><br>
Max is doing well. He's nursing like crazy today, I think maybe it's a growth spurt? He's been gaining really well too. He'd already surpassed his birth weight by 2 weeks. I haven't had any problems with engorgement or even leaking this time. Last time I needed pads right out of the shower, but this time not even a drop. I guess that's what happens after 3 straight years of nursing? :LOL His hematoma is finally shrinking and his color is better (he was slightly jaundiced) He still sleeps a lot which I'm still not used to. He spits up a lot too, after every feeding almost. Dd almost never spit up. I'm getting better at catching him before it gets all over his clothes though :LOL<br><br>
And if anybody's interested I've been updating Max's page on a weekly basis and added a Christmas pic of him and Katie <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> The link's in my siggy

Just checking in again because we had a midwife appointment - and Naomi has already (at 4 days old) gotten back up over her birth-weight! Guess this oversupply is good for something, eh?

DO NOT PANIC!! Toxic erythma (I believe that is how it is spelled) shows up at 2 weeks. It sounds dangerous, but it is not. Looks very similar to baby acne <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Look in the baby book. I think he talks about it during "The First MOnth"<br><br>

Hello everyone <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br><br>
Oh, Niki, I got your PM, but was NAKing and couldn't respond. I totally understand you losing my phone #. I lost michray's address like 2x for the swap <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes"> I'm so glad you had a wonderful birth <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Everything is going great, Owen just turned one month old today. And get this, the kid is freakin' huge. He was 6 and a half pounds at birth, and is now about 10! Yes, 10 freakin' pounds. My older son has been nursing quite a bit and I think Owen is really enjoying that high caloric and high fatty hindmilk <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
He is having a lot of trouble pooping though. He pushes and strains and cries (<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">), and sometimes falls asleep while pooping. I'm so hoping this is not a food allergy as my older son was allergic to, 35-40 different foods. We are still not on dairy or wheat, and we don't eat meat, so I'm very scared it could be <span style="font-size:xx-small;">soy or corn</span>, anything else I will give up in a heartbeat, but those 2 were awful. We have an appt w/our homeopath on the 4th so I will talk to him about it then.<br><br>
My older son has been a terror. It has been so awful. His cheeks have been bright red again, and he has that all too familiar allergy ring around his anus, so I know we are struggling w/something again. I cannot wait to see the homeopath so we can work on this again. But I know that his out of control behavior is all too familiar when he eats something that he is allergic to. So I know that after we see the homeopath, things will get better and we can just deal w/the normal behavior of a 3yr old who just got a new brother.<br><br>
BUT, my older son LOVES his new brother. He is always kissing him and wanting to hold him. Just a terror w/us, so that is nice.<br><br>
Well, my older son wants to nurse and go to bed<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br>

WOW amy, that's interesting. I didn't know behavior was related to allergies. Emma must be allergic to everything! SHe's been driving me nuts. I really want to take her to a therapist but I"m scared that they'd either blame it all on me or make her feel crazy. She's just acting so strange. She tends to find things that irritate me and then obcess about them. SHe'll be in the other room or upstairs and just shout out RANDOM THINGS TO PISS ME OFF. Out of no where, "i'm tearing up a book.." "I'm jumping on my bed" things like that. I know it's about attention. BUT, I"m with her 24/7 and I have 3 kids, one special needs. I just don't have anything else to give and frankly when she acts like that I don't want to. It's really hard to want to spend more quality time with someone who devotes all theirs to aggrivating you. I can't wait until she goes to school. She's got to be bored or something right?<br><br>
Anyway, my middle child Meg, is getting sick. Since DH took 3 weeks leave and has been taking care of the girls he forgot to give her any of her herbs or vitamins. I gave her all that and some breastmilk last night so hopefully she'll feel better soon.<br><br><br>
Cole is wonderful. He's got a bad diaper rash that is really worrying me but other than that... he's great. Eating well now and growing too I can tell.<br>
My nipples are really sore. They were not fopr the first 2 1/2 weeks but this last week they have been really sore when he sucks. I'm confused about this because there is no obvious trauma. Nipples but not areolas are bright pink. Anyone know what that is about? I''m going to call the LC and ask them. He's sleeping peacfully right now in his pouch. I loved my zolo but he and I much prefer my fleece hotsling now. It's a shame too cause the zolo looks too cool. It's great for the tummy to tummy but he prefers to sit cradle style.<br>
He's decided he hate nursing when i'm laying down for some reason. He was great at it before and now just fusses and won't latch on until I sit up.<br><br>
I miss my midwives. I need to get together with them to give them the little gifts I got them and their thank you cards but I didn't want to bother them at the holidays.<br><br>
I'm going to set up a photobucket right now to share my pics. I'll post back when it's done.

In terms of DS's allergies, it is really obvious when he is acting like he (or I) ate something "bad" or normal 3 yr old behavior. Running around in the store, vs. pulling <i>everything</i> off the shelves. One time we were in the hfs---where we are all the time, and the cashier, said, "geez, what did you give him corn or something". And I said, "no, we just tried spelt this morning, guess its still out". IT IS AMAZING.<br><br>
But, in terms of serious diaper rash and sore nipples, the first thing I think of is thrush. I've never had thrush, so I have limited info on it. But, I would warm up some yogurt--do not cook it, you don't want to kill the bacteria--and put some warm yogurt on his butt. Or probiotics if you got them. Gentian violet works great for killing the yeast on your breasts, just makes everything purple :LOL Like really purple. Keep Cole diaperless as much as possible. Also, look up a yeast prevention diet, I believe you should be cutting out sugar and white flour and such to help kill the yeast.<br><br>
IF that is what is going on. Just the fact that your nipples are sore, and Cole has a terrible rash makes me think of it. Oh, I also wouldn't use commercial wipes for his bum, just some warm water.<br><br>

Thanks!<br><br><br>
Doesn't thrush look like something? His botom looks terrible but my nipples look fine. I don't get it. That and his mouth looks fine. Could it still be thrush? I have no yogurt but I do have acidophilus.<br>
O, and I tried lotrimin a few times and nada.<br><br><br>
Here are the pictures for those interested.<br><br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/v496/angelamom/" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/v496/angelamom/</a><br><br>

You would not be the 1st mama to have silent thrush on her nipples. You might want to go over to the bfing forum here (the getting started one) & search around.<br><br>
You also might want to google "diaper rash photos thrush" & see what you find.<br><br>
Off to look at the photos <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Just wanted to say hello! We're doing well - ds is growing so very fast - at three weeks I am already nostalgic!<br><br>
Question - he sometimes gets a lot of gas, and its very uncomfortable for him. I am pretty sure he is swallowing air - I can hear it, and can feel it when we're tummy to tummy. I don't think its anything I ate, as it comes and goes even when my diet is the same. I am thinking that he is in a growth spurt and so I am producing more milk (LOTS of milk here - puddles in bed, soaking through pads, it comes in fast...) and that the overabundance is cousing him to swallow air as he nurses. It happened a lot right after he was born, tapered off, and now is occuring again. Any insight or feedback????<br><br>
Glad to hear everyone is doing so well!<br><br>
Shalena - I don't know too much about the acne, but we have some mustela baby shampoo that is so wonderfully mild and gentle, and worked absolute magic on dd's cradle cap. I've been using it when I bathe bryce (on his skin, not just his scalp and hair), and it is great - makes his skin so soft and sweet and clean without drying or irritating at all. I don't know if it would help clear up the acne, but it might be worth a try. I wouldn't panic either, some acne is supposed to be quite normal. good luck!

MHL,<br>
My nipples have been getting a little sore (but look normal) the past couple days and I think maybe it's a growth spurt? They look just how you described. He's 3 weeks today and has been nursing more these past couple days. He seems to be emptying my breasts more too, like he'll keep nursing until it seems like one side is empty and then fuss to go over to the other. He doesn't have any diaper rash so I doubt it would be thrush in our case, but just wanted to add my 2¢ <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Kristi,<br>
Max has a ton of gas too. He's always burping and spitting up after almost every feeding. And he really strains to pass gas and poop. I know bfed babies can't get constipated, but I hate to see him in such pain/discomfort. It seems to be very painful these past couple days especially. I'm starting to wonder how much is normal for a newborn? Dd almost never spit up or burped so it seems like even more because of that. He's gaining really well though so I'm sure he's getting enough, I'm just wondering if he could have some type of painful reflux or something. Or allergies. How long do babies typically spit up for? I'm guessing it's because he was a couple weeks early, but does that mean that he should outgrow it in a few weeks or it's something we'll be dealing with for months or years?

We're having the same problem with Elana swallowing air when she nurses. I can hear it. Often she's fussy and gassy. We can't fall asleep side-lying at night anymore because if I don't burp her afterwards, she'll wake up screaming in pain (gas bubble). I hate not being able to fix it, and she's been like this for a week or so. I wonder if this is "normal". Oh well... off to find a gas remedy...

Coles gassy too but that is also the thrush that I know we have. I've now got a vag yeast infection and breast. His rash is better already after using clotrimazole for just today. I'm trying to get some difulcan but in the mean time i'm trying the grape seed extract thrush protocol. It tastes like vomit. I hate it. I'm scared to death that he'll get an aversion to BF from the taste. The gas is from overactive letdown. He just has to gulp to keep up or he gets drowned.
