• Ok so I have made some of my own baby food, only got strong enough to do sweet potatoes, green beans, and bananas so far, going to wait and make sure he’ll eat the other ones before I make it myself. Got a couple of questions though….so my green beans looked so much better, greener and such than the regular jarred stuff but it wasn’t the smooth…[Read more]

    I’ve also read on a bunch of different sites that different tastes in the milk help baby get a taste for other foods when they get older and help not have a picky eater, now I’m not sure that’s true but might be. And that sometimes you can see your babe enjoying the different flavors of the milk. Ethan’s never really had any issues with anything…[Read more]

    Ethan likes to bite me when he’s done eating…he’s done that all day today, he better stop soon!!! 🙂

  • SmurfWxMama replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 6 months ago

    Ok so I have a question…a few weeks ago I seem to have bruised my nipple I think…I started the pump on the really high setting by accident and it pulled like 3 times before I was able to turn it down…but I’m still in pain when I pump on that side, and even when he feeds off that side. I try to have him feed off that side mostly since it’s…[Read more]

    Rosiejrz143- I pump and nurse still, sometimes it seems like my lil guy wants me as soon as I get him from daycare no matter if he just ate or not. I know he uses me to fall asleep and I’m ok with that most the time lol! He still wakes up at night and he’s almost 6 mths old. Sometimes he sleeps most the night through but other times he wakes…[Read more]

    Ethan’s gotten better about biting, now when he’s done he’ll swivel his head like 180 to see what’s going on and that’s my cue he’s done lol! Every once in a while he does a quick little bite to let me know he’s there or something I have no idea cause he’ll grin when I say no and put it away, lil monster! He’s also gotten into the ‘playing with…[Read more]

    My in-law’s are the same way….now my mil is thinking of getting off work and living on her and fil’s disability checks….I don’t see that happening for long and we’re waiting for the money calls to start coming in. I refuse to feel bad because I have a job that is steady(military) and pays decent. I chose my path and you chose yours so live with it!

    Ok so my MIL is at it again! She has this notion that I am not allowing my husband to go home to see her.

    Too many MIL stories from me but this one I’m going to share…They recently got evicted, moved in with BIL and then they said he kicked them out(I’ve heard otherwise but not there so don’t know) so then they moved in with a niece or something.

    So…turns out it was Lyme Disease and not Syphillus, bout beat his ass when he told me that, I mean seriously who lets doctor run a test if you know it’s negative, what kind of message does that send…he’s lucky I don’t go get a bunch more ticks and stick them on him!! And I’ve never even seen a tick over here in the UK, much less in my own house!
