    number2luv- having an epidural or other medication can make baby very sleepy after delivery. unless you have a c-section or other complications there shouldnt be any reason why you can bond with and nurse your baby. the only time they took my baby was to get me out of the birthing tub and into the bed. then i nursed him before they even weighed…[Read more]

    DJs girl- babies will prefer their moms whether you give formula or breastfeed. if you have any desire to breastfeed, please do it, its truly the best thing. you can pump a bottle, or supplement with formula for your bf to feed baby.

    PregoNes- i hate to discourage you, but you could actually remain pregnant for like another month if you go over your due date by two weeks. Many people do not dilate until they are starting labor. I hope you dont have to wait that long but most babies are not born on their due dates.

    i dont think mold can grow in the freezer, i would think it would be ok, but im not really sure. it really sucks to have to throw out breastmilk.

    I have had 12 fuzzibunz that have lasted 3yrs and still going. I had been using those along with disposables but when my second son was born i decided to try prefolds as well to increase my cloth stash. Prefolds are more time consuming to put on but with a good cover there will be NO leaks. They also wash better than fuzzibunz because theya re all…[Read more]

    sometimes my caleb only eats one boob at a time. my other two almost always only ate from one side at a time. the good thing about it is you can almost always tell which boob you need to feed on next because it feels heavier and fuller. you just do a little booby shake on each side to feel which one is fuller. because caleb sometimes eats from…[Read more]

  • hey ladies…sorry to all of you dealing with losses! especially during the holidays. I had a miscarriage on July 5th. I was 6weeks along. I only bled for 5 days and I got pregnant again July 19th. Someone had told me fertility is high after a miscarriage and so I looked for signs of fertile mucus and went for it. And now I am 23 weeks prego. So…[Read more]

  • Oh, i was going to say something about getting things going. You can talk to your doc about getting your membranes stripped. I think they wont do it until your due date but maybe a little earlier. I had my done and my son was born a day and half later. Hope you rest and enjoy the last few days while you can!

    sher- i dropped my baby once. i was going to sit on the couch to nurse him. before i sat down, he squirmed right out of my arms, and fell ab0ut 3ft. he pretty much landed on his head. i was actually on vacation with my husband, MIL, SIL and of course they were sitting right there and saw it happen. I felt horrible, ran to my room with baby and…[Read more]

  • My daughter 4 and son 2, share a room but its the only room. we dont have any room for our baby due in april, but we are building on. Baby’s sex will be a suprise but will most likely be sharing a room with one of his or her siblings. When my daughter had to share her room with her brother she didnt mind at all. she pretty much slept through…[Read more]
