    scarlet-we’ll be traveling in September and more than likely we’ll get Isaac asleep and then either hold him until we’re ready for bed or lay him down beside us in a chair or on a couch. once we’re ready for bed we’ll just take him with us. I also babywear so if we’re active and he falls asleep he’ll be in his carrier. which just made me think. does your stroller recline all the way back? we have one that does that could make a make shift, movable cot.

    yeah we went down pretty easy. it took seth aboutten minutes, but all that hard work on my end just wasted. i hate leaving the room when he’s crying but he would have been up twice as long if i had stayed. his daddy has the magic touch if it isn’t boob time!

    We got Zach an amber necklace for his birthday and I love it! We get all sorts of crap from my siblings about it because they think its a crock, but I have been able to notice the difference. When he got all his other teeth, he was completely unbearable, this time yesterday was the first day he was really whiny and needed pain meds, but the one tooth is right at teh gum so you can see it, the other tooth that is coming in isn’t too far behind. My sister was watching him and she has a very low tolerance level, which could have also played a part in the use of pain meds! 🙂 After all the crap they give me, I had to tell them about the docs reaction when she saw him wear it…thought it was cute and asked if he noticed it was on at all. We told her that he only plays with it when its on his ankle for sleeping and she was totally cool with it! Made me feel good , but I love her, so I really wouldn’t have expected anything different. When buying beads, keep in mind that the lighter the color of the beads (they come as light as butter yellow) and the cloudier the beads (Inspired by Finn sells some semi-polished that are really cute, and that’s what we got Zach) the more potent the amber is.

    hey ladies..its been a while since iv posted..jonah is doing well..bfing and pumping to save is doing splendid..i have overcome quite a few obsticles that could of made me quit bfing…one being Dysphoric MER…i still have it very bad which occurs every feeding about 4 times…but i am pushing thro it…the thought of him eating anything else other than from me breaks my heart. even tho i dont post often i read the forum daily and am greatful to have these posts to listen too..its very encouraging to any bfing mother. my best friend Styx (you all know her) has been the best support possible. i am a single mother of two..and at first breastfeeding just seemed to be out of my league. but she encouraged me to stick with it..and now i could not imagine feeding my son any differently. there is some talk of the washington moms getting together..and that would be so awesome..id love to meet the faces and babies behind the stories 🙂 anyhoo thanks ladies for simply sharing your stories..ill try to come in and conversate more lol

    Kelley, that is a hard one. To quote the WHO (world health org), they say a minimum 2 years and then however long after as long as baby and mom want to. The AAP (academy of American Ped) recommends 1 year and then however long after. The only reason they only suggest a year is because we are Americans and it’s hard enough to get moms to nurse for a year let alone two. Sooo, I plan on nursing for 2 years at least. The average length in the world is 4 years old. I know that is a little extreme for most but that’s just the stats. If I were you I’d plan on nursing for at least a year. Shorter then a year then you would have to introduce formula and why do that when you are making better milk. Once you’ve hit a year you can then decide if you want to wean by then as well. Most babies will not self wean before 2 years old. There is usually something that’ll make them. My first weaned at 22months but I was also pregnant so my supply was lower and pregnancy hormones change the taste. He just wasn’t interested in it anymore. Others, if they are given too many bottles then they’ll wean or something like that. But if you are strictly breastfeeding then they won’t. Good Luck!

    deeyore, just read your comments about it. How do you handle a child that doesn’t care if he’s wet. Chris doesn’t care. He peed in underwear yesterday and had jeans on. He didn’t care. It wasn’t until we asked him to go potty that we realized he had already gone. Ugh!

    Hi ladies. I have a question for experienced mom’s who exclusively breast feed. My 2 and half week old daughter is suddenly exhibiting signs of seperation anxiety. Whenever she is held by someone other then me she gets extremely upset. Last night I left her with her dad while I took a 10 minute shower and in that time she cried until her voice was hoarse. As soon as he handed her to me she stopped completely. She is exclusively breast fed and I’m holding off on giving her a bottle until she is 4 weeks old. Any suggestions on what I can do to help her be okay when other people hold her? She also does this with her grandparents and her siblings, and just about anybody who holds her. Right now I just feel terrible for my husband. This is his first little girl and he is extremely sad that he is not able to comfort her.

    @cantwaittobeamom Thanks its nice to know that I am not the only one going through this. I am guessing that is something I may have to do when I need to leave her I just feel guilty because I don’t want to think that she is hungry and mommy is not there. I am going to bring this issue up with her Pediatrician on Monday. Hopefully I will be able to find a solution.

    Hi all! I was reading your posts and wanted to share a wonderful support site for those that have Facebook. It’s called The Leaky [email protected]@b and has 26,000+ supporters from all walks of life. It saved my breastfeeding relationship.

    babyofdeployment08 I made my own. It’s so easy. all you do is get a sports bra cut the holes where the shields will go and there you go. I don’t know what I would do without it. The time goes by so much faster when I can use my hands to do other things. You should try it before you go out and buy one.
