    I usually spend around $250 on groceries for 2 weeks, that includes diapers, dog food, cat food etc. I try to keep my meat in the freezer stocked up because that can get expensive when you have to buy a bunch of meat. I also stopped buying the pre-packaged stuff, that gets expensive! The only pre packaged stuff I do buy is the Boca nuggets for the…[Read more]

    I’m sooooo hungry all the time, please help! Is anyone else feeling this way? I’m GAINING weight and it’s freaking me out. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Quinn always nurses to sleep but she’s pretty much on schedule so she has her last feed between 9 and 9:30 and she’s alseep for the night. I don’t know if that counts as ‘nursing to sleep’ or not though. She’s starting to coo some today, so cute! She’s on her playmat now giving smiles to her octupus that hangs overhead, haha

    Hi ladies! I have a quick question for all you pros out there. This is my third baby but first time EBFing. Quinn is 10 days old now and we have just now figured out how to BF, lol. But for some reason I get a really good latch on the right, but a terrible latch on the left =/ I’ve tried all sorts of different holds on the left and nothing seems…[Read more]

    Jessica- I have a 2.5 YO, 16 month old and a 7 week old! I love having them close together but it is HARD right now. My middle son has always been clingy and my 2 YO is naughty when he doesn’t have constant supevision lol. As soon as they see me sit down to nurse Quinn they know they can get away with more…naughty, naughty. But i’m glad that…[Read more]

    I just watched a video someone posted on Facebook about parents suprising their kids, mostly young, after being deployed. I cried for 10 minutes straight, lol. These crazy hormones still haven’t evened themselves out. My husband is in the Coast Guard and is usually gone for 2 weeks at a time and my boys are ecstatic to see Daddy. I can’t imagine…[Read more]

    Has anyone here had ovarian cysts? If so can you please explain your symptoms? I’ve had this sharp pain on my left side, right above my hip bone. Right about where my ovary would be. It’s a dull ache if i’m standing and sometimes don’t even notice it but when I bend over or try to get up from laying down or sitting on the floor it’s a sharp,…[Read more]

    I wanted to share this video with everyone. Salma Hayek was on a humanitarian mission to Sierra Leone and while she was there she nursed an infant who was starving…amazing story!

    jenniewren- We recently did a 16 hour trip with 2 toddlers and a 2 week old. My advice to you is do the trip in 2 days. That’s what we did and it was a lifesaver! We did 8 hours the first day and 8 the second day. We stopped every 3 hours so I could nurse Quinn and we were stopped for about 30 minutes each time. I don’t know what I would’ve done…[Read more]

    lil tip- My daughter (8 weeks tomorrow) was eating every 3 hours around the clock until 6 weeks. Now she’s sleeping anywhere between 5 and 8 hours at night. But she likes to cluster feed closer to bed time to stock up.

    I’m a huge fan of Bethenny Frankel. I love her humor and she seems really down to earth and an all around cool chick. I think is so great that she’s such an advocate for breastfeeding. She was the only reason that I watch Real Houswives of NYC, now the New Jersey Housewives, they crack me up. That show is my husbands guilty pleasure too haha

    I finally feel like a human being again! Quinn slept from 11:30 to 6am…hooray!

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

    I’ve only every swaddled my babies at night and always kept to the same routine so they knew it was bedtime. It’s worked like a charm with all three of my kiddos.
