    I love the lactvist shirts, wish I could afford to buy them, but I’m so broke, and not looking like that’s going to improve any time soon! I do agree that boobies sounds better than titties, but while we’re on the subject…. When my son was 7 he came home from school one day, pointed at my chest and said, ‘I know what those are called. They’re tits. See, I just said tits. I’m as tall as your tits, Mom!’ I just kind of gaped at him….I hate what they learn from other kids in school!

    emilee- congrats! at least you can hold his hands down, it was hard because he wasn’t actively biting you, so this is better!

    It’s better to split time then see your parents hate each other and grow to resent one another. My parents should have gotten a divorce long before they did.

    Here is something I’m curious about. I’m trying to figure out how many ounces I would need to send to daycare with Derek each day. I believe the rule is 1-1.5oz for every hour…so if he is there about 9 hours and I sent 4 3.5 oz. bottles that would okay right? However, I read that babies never really need more ounces because the breastmilk changes as they grow. So, will he always eat that often? With my daughter I remember increasing the number of ounces in a bottle as she got older and she just ate less frequently. So how does this progress? Does this question even make sense?? I guess I’m just curious, will there be a point I send less bottles with more ounces in them?

    Bri- that is fun! i love buying stuff hahaha. But it’ll be nice to have a place for him if he’s moving around for naps and stuff.

    benhubby – I am getting ready for a flight too and I am nervous as hell! My lo is the exact same way, busy as all get out. I mean you would think the child knows how to at least crawl as busy as she is! Our only plan of action is to bring lots of toys and snacks.

    roseygirl – Congrats! Engorgement settles so differently for everyone. But, you should expect a few weeks of this. There are booby-tubes which are basically ice/warm packs that help with engorgement. Warm showers do the same thing. Just keep feeding and eventually it’ll be ok.

    So I have been giving my LO a bottle most of the time b/c she wasn’t breastfeeding well but yesterday we did it all day long and no bottles. She will be 3 weeks old this Wednesday. We are going to keep on going. I’m pumping some and going to put it in the freezer. What kind of containers do I freeze it in? For right now I’ve been keeping it in the fridge. Hurray for the facebook page. I just requested to join. I’m so busy w/ the little one that I don’t get to come on here much and it takes so long to read everything and then I don’t have time to comment. Hope everyone is having a nice day. It’s a nice cool sunny day here in San Diego!

    benbubby – if your LO is having painful gas you could try black strap molasses. A friend/co-worker of mine has a PhD in nutrition (and has had 2 little girls of her own) and this is what she recommends for gassy and/or colicy babies. You need to get the syrup form of it. You add a drop of this syrup to a bottle of breast milk (or ‘the F word’ if you go that route) at every feeding (although if you exclusively nurse that might be tricky). Usually by the 2nd or 3rd feeding they feel a lot better. A friend of mine tried it on her little boy and it worked wonders. This stuff is so rich and thick it coats babies tummies against irritants and helps them pass their poop as well. If you do try it however, be prepared to see some dark poop. Again, it’s only 1 drop per every 5-6oz bottle of milk at every feeding. This stuff is completely natural and safe and can be used indefinitely (according to my friend). I’ve done research on it and I would use it this way as well if I had to but I suggest you research this yourself as well. We give it to Alyssa once in a while just for it’s health benefits not as a remedy. I’m not a medical expert but it seems to do the trick! Good luck! 🙂

    Another random fact….formula is FOURTH on the list of recommended food for infants by the WHO.

    thats why i am getting them now, we were at my cousins last weeks and Delaney started up the steps. i am on the verge of insanity, she climbs, crawls, rolls, pulls herself up and into EVERYTHING. she is to darn brave, she will let go and try to take steps, and if there isnt something with in arms-reach she falls. she has a huge red mark on her forehead from a fall she took today. i try to keep her down off of things but i somehow feel like i am holding her back from reaching milestones….grr why dont these babies come with a manual?!? HAHA

    firsttimer – My first didn’t sleep through until way past a year. My second still gets up a few times and he’s 7 months. He’s also like your baby. If I don’t feed him he ends up screaming and waking himself up so bad that he can’t go back to sleep. I suggest to continue to feed him. He’ll start sleeping through when he is ready. I know it’s tiring. At one point with my first I was getting up 6 times a night while working. It does get better.

    Bri, yes i think its appropriate for a brand new mother (and more importantly a brand new baby) to stay home…. 24/7… unless they’re at the doctor. There are a lot of nasty germs out there for brand new babies….
