    seuban0-I don’t think your over reacting to any part of that!! I think you need to have a serious talk with him…the fact that he doesn’t even consider your feelings is pretty rude! I hope things get better for you!!!!

    kat86-I wouldn’t worry about not hearing the heartbeat yet. I didn’t hear it until around week 10!! You can SEE it on an unltrasound fairly early but not hear it. I got an u/s done at about 6 weeks and couldn’t see anything..we went back on about week 8 and saw it that time. Try not to worry and remember that the dates they give you are just…[Read more]

    hey ladies I have a question…my LO spits up after EVERY feed..and not the normal teaspoon…at first the doc thought it was just reflux but the medication didn’t work..then I thought she was allergic to cows milk that I was drinking but that didn’t make much of a difference then some one suggested that my LO might be getting to much foremilk. I…[Read more]

    hey ladies, does anyone have a suggestion for a good bottle? My LO BF’s most of the time but I’ve been pumping so that I can stock some milk so the DH and I can have date nights or in case I need to go somewhere for teh day. We have used the tommy tippie ones but it seems that it lets to much air in and the LO spits up and burps a TON. I want to…[Read more]

    styx -I just took my LO to the docs today and she’s 10.4 at 4 weeks! LOL but she was 9.10lb when she was born so I’m not surprised. She’s in the 90% for height and weight.

    hey ladies…so I asked yesterday about pumping and giving the LO a bottle before 6 weeks..I did it. I pumped and surprised my DH and let him feed her for the first time when he got home from work. I have to admit I hated every minute of it! I actually teared up when I held her afterward! I didn’t let her go for teh rest of teh night!!!!! I…[Read more]

    hey ladies i have a question..when do bf babies start sleeping through the night? I know every baby is different but is there a round about age??? My LO only wakes up twice right now but it’s been that way for a while. We go to bed at 10 and she’s back up at about 2 and 6 to eat. I know breastmilk is digested faster so ff babies sleep through the…[Read more]

    hey ladies I have a question. I’m bf’ing the babes who is 3 weeks old..but I’d like to be able to pump and give her a bottle later on…i’ve talked to a few woman who said that when they waited the recommened 6 weeks to try and give the baby a bottle they wouldn’t take it at that point. So has anyone given their babies bottles before the 6 weeks…[Read more]

    hey ladies I have another question. My LO is almost 6 weeks old and seems to spit up a lot (to me at least). She spits up after every feed…and sometime multiple times. I don’t think she’s spitting all of her feed because she’s still putting on weight. But it is more then the little dribble down the chin. Is this normal?? What can I do to reduce…[Read more]

    Thank you guys sooo much!!! I think we’ll give it a try. Although I have to admit I dont want to give her a bottle just yet…I LOVE having her all to myself for feeding..and LOVE that I can comfort her so much faster then anyone else….I know it’s selfish but I just can’t help it. But I do want my DH to feed her..I think he’d bond better with…[Read more]
