    god-iva, the biggest question is how much do you want to spend? I am super cheap, so we do things the old fashioned way…prefolds and pins! 🙂 You don’t have to go that route though, esp if you are willing to pay more for a diaper!

    i’ve been talking to my midwife about contraception, and she suggested the depo. She said this will not affect my supply. Is this true?

    jeniwalker – Alex was 28in at 4 months, I’m thinking he’ll be 29in on Friday. He’s wearing 18month clothes already.

    mere-and-girl – It’s weird but they it’s almost numbing when you nurse through a shot. Flicking or hitting your child while they are nursing is different. They learn that if they nurse then they get hit. Babies that nurse while getting a shot hardly feel the shot at all. Alex doesn’t even cry at it.

    Hi ladies—anyone here try this product called ‘milkies’– ( i saw that someone posted a poll about it last night and it peaked my interest– but I figured you girls would be the best to ask). Supposedly you place it on the opposite breast while nursing in order to collect letdown so that you can store and use it later. Sounds like a fantastic idea, but I know sometimes great ideas don’t always mean the product is great. I’m thinking about getting it for my sis as a shower gift–the only thing is that she has very large breasts (i’m not even sure i could guess the size they will be when her milk comes in!)–wonder if it would be a hinderance to using it…thoughts? Check out the link

    For those having issues eating a cup of oats at once I totally undestand. I was told a cup once a day but because I couldn’t choke down that much oatmeal at once I split it to a half cup twice daily. As long as you are eating at least a cup a day you should see an increase.

    Between the doctor and me going to babysit a 3 year old little girl last night (who didn’t understand that Zoey wakes up easily for the first 30 minutes she’s asleep)…Zoey didn’t get an evening nap and went to bed a little earlier, slept harder, threw her night schedule off, she was hungry at 6 this morning…and either she’d eaten recently (I don’t know as I usually sleep through it) or my supply just isn’t used to a 6 AM feeding… she was getting pretty fussy that the flow wasn’t fast enough. So I decided to get us up and distract her for about an hour. 15 more minutes and we’re headed back to bed!! (Hopefully.) Thank goodness she’s not a screamer when she’s hungry. I’ve never tested it but I think she’d go most of the day without eating and just not care! She’s 16

    scarlet begonia – I know it’s hard. It’s very stressful pumping. You can do it. Just think, you are more sane now then if you resorted to formula. The sadness is really hard on moms who want to EBF, especially when you know what goes into that stuff.

    I’m finding there’s a lot less screeching and pointing with ‘ehhh’, both of which drive me crazy, so it’s been great for us. DH and MIL are both quite willing to use the signs (but not to teach), so that helps I’m sure. Both are just thankful to know what she wants!

    Bri – so he doesn’t know you’re wondering? LOL! If you are, just remind him it wasn’t all your doing. I was 20 when I found out I was pregnant with Zoey… I had never been pregnant before and didn’t have any reason to think I was. Except I woke up and knew. I was four weeks. LOL. Not even time to miss a period, not that my cycles have EVER been regular or trackable. They’re random and miserably hard. I am LOVING this IUD because I haven’t had a period since I had it put in. And I really don’t want more kids with her dad…so if we’re still together in five years when I have to get it out, I’ll probably think something more long term. But if we’re not, I’d be up for having another little one with someone else. Three just overwhelms him sometimes. Me too! I had all three this morning. The twins are good kids but the little boy has Aspergers and was in a not listening sort of mood today. I handled it well until he hit Zoey in the head (not too hard, but still) with a fly swat. No more redirection after that. I sat his happy little self in a chair to wait for daddy to get home. Needless to say, Zoey and I came home and slept for three hours. Much needed on both ends!

    doublemama – I know what you mean. I’ve either been pregnant or breastfeeding since Feb 07. I want another too so it’ll be several more years for me. But…I do think I’ll cry when my last one weans. I love this age and I love breastfeeding. I love the power that I feel. I will mourn it when it comes.
