    Ok so I’m curious, I know this is the bf forum but I had a couple of questions…so my Babys 6 months old and when my af comes back I’m thinking I’m gonna be close to ready to ttc. Does my milk dry up tho if I get preggo? Is there something to do to forgo that? Should I do something b4 ttc to prevent it?

    Emilee, I left you a note on the other page. I’m concerned about the amount of blood you’ve lost. I’m glad the supply is back but your periods shouldn’t be filling a tampon in an hour.

    mama, this is what kellymom says about reverse cycling…What is reverse cycling?

    Reverse cycling is when baby nurses frequently at night and less frequently during the day.

    Why do some babies reverse cycle?

    * Newborns may reverse cycle in the early days or weeks simply because they have their days and nights mixed up.
    * Distractible (and/or very active) babies or toddlers may nurse more at night to make up for missed or shortened nursing sessions during the day.
    * If mom is very distracted or busy during the day, baby may nurse more at night to make up for missed or shortened nursing sessions, or simply to get more uninterrupted time with mom.
    * If mom is away from baby during the day, baby may take just enough milk (by bottle or cup) to ‘take the edge off’ his hunger, then wait for mom to return to get the bulk of his calories. Baby will typically nurse more often and/or longer than usual once mom returns. Some mothers encourage reverse cycling so they won’t need to pump as much milk. Reverse cycling is common for breastfed babies who are away from mom part of the day, especially those just starting out with the bottle.

    Had a great doctor’s visit. Alex is still HUGE! At 6 mo. he is 22lbs 13oz and 29 1/4in long! Got some shots but unlike most shots he laughed! Actually he screeched at the top of his lungs at the nurse and starting laughing at her reaction. Hasn’t cried since. That’s my boy!

    god-iva – It’s fine. Consider yourself lucky. Many of us have kids that won’t sleep through until they are a year or older. They will start sleeping through when they are ready which it looks like yours is. Your supply will adjust to the new schedule so I wouldn’t worry about it.

    There are SOOO many women putting cereal in their babies bottles in my month. It’s frustrating, but I just bite my tongue, because they know best. I understand that for babies with reflux it is recommended for medical reasons, but there are women that started doing it when their baby was 2 weeks old ‘so they would sleep better.’ I wish people would do more research, using legitimate resources, before making decisions like that.

    Baby Gap has some cute ones. When Chris was young I bought a Mr. Milk Man onsie. Of course Alex outgrew in in 2 seconds flat. I could put something on him and have it be too small by the next diaper change. HAHA! Can you believe we’re working on 24lbs and he’s only 6 1/2 months. I’m thinking we’ll be needing to go to size 5 diapers here shortly. Ugh! Chris still fitsin 4’s just fine. He’s a skinny little boy but Alex has some much bulging everywhere. It’s funny his little guy is considered ‘recessed’ because there is so much baby fat down there that it sinks in. HAHA! I guess that’s why he hardly ever pees without a diaper on. HAHA! Chris would pee as soon as the diaper was taken off even if he’d just gone.

    megs83 – Heard it works well but it’s not FDA approved. Can’t be sold in the US but…you can buy it online. It’s costly though. Have you tried fermented oatmeal yet. Almost all of us had awesome results from it.

    Casen, you can find them all over online, if you are on FB, you can search for Inspired By Finn and with their page, if you like it, you can get 20% off your order. Details on the discussions page. Some people are able to find them in stores if they have a good health/homeopathic store around. You can use amber with headaches, back problems, joint issues, the list goes on! The acid in the amber seeps out and into the skin with the heat of the body. The lighter the color and the cloudier the beads, the more effective the necklace is. Bri, I love love love that the necklace worked so well for you! I can’t wait until Zach’s comes in!

    On another note, I had been feeding Ollie on demand. He had been suffering really bad with wind/gas. He was feeding every 1 – 2 hours. But only feeding for ten mins at a time. Been trying to get him to feed every 2 – 3 hours and his wind has really improved.

    Thanks seuban0. I bought the pills at a organic/health food store and wanted to take it. It is such a quiet night ladies: husband is asleep with our 4 year old on the couch (I guess a day of golfing makes you tired) and I am on the other couch with baby Jack who is also sleeping…on my belly/chest! How peaceful. I just wish the steeler game was a little more exciting. But on the other hand, I should take this opportunity to crash too! Night ladies and thanks again seuban0!
