    godiva, how is the diet going for u? what are u eliminating? ive been given the green light by the GI to start eating normally again but im having trouble with it psychologically. i have one of those nagging consciences, so even though i really want to eat i cant. so far ive just had taco bell and dinner at a restaurant with my friends. and even the plate i ordered was one that at most only had soybean oil, no dairy or soy protein in it. im sure ill get there eventually, just ironic isnt it lol.

    I am with military, I LOVE cloth! I also work full time, but even with that my oldest potty trained himself at 18mo. He doesn’t like to feel wet and the cloth diapers let them feel the dampness even though they absorb like crazy. He decided to do something about it! I didn’t have enough time to get a diaper back on him when we brought Zach home from the hospital and Ayden took off! A minute later he high-tailed it to his little potty and went. Took again while i was just sitting there in shock, only to come racing back in and poop. He never looked back! My favorite sites are bummis.com, abbyslane.com and tinytush.com. We use the tinytush prefolds with bummis covers. I get my covers at abbyslane though cause she always has great deals. I just check out what Bummis has to offer before going to her!

    Joy-S – Congrats! I breastfed through my second pregnancy. You should be fine. You need to make sure you have all the calories that you need. Just keep eating and eating right. Drink lots of water. Almonds, oatmeal and sticky rice are really good for supply. Drink mother’s milk tea as well. Nurse as often as your baby wants. Because of the hormones it’ll be a little harder to keep nursing at a longer pace so she might need to continue to nurse every couple of hours. I know, tiring but just offer it any time she needs it.

    jeniwalker – That’s horrible. Let him know that the WHO recommends two years and that it’s much easier on mom and baby when they are both ready to give it up. Moms can go into depression if they wean before they are ready and of course babies will have fits as well. I agree, find some articles that show the benefits of extended feeding. You need to have him on your side.

    We’re a Nordy family as well! HAHA! Either that or I go straight to the StrideRite store. Both Bell Sq. and Alderwood have them. They tend to have a bigger selection. HAHA!

    phatbaby, I totally understand but we had to. Chris was a bit older but he needed to learn that cheerios and goldfish just weren’t on the menu. Even last night he wanted snacks and I told him dinner. He threw a fit but dinner was only 10 minutes away. Once I sat him down he actually ate it. If your baby is really hungry then they’ll eat what’s on the plate. Of course there will be food that they don’t like. If that happens then I do make something else and scratch that item off our menu but we at least try things. Chris loves fish which is awesome. We had spaghetti last night which is always a hit.

    I don’t know the difference in the oats. All I know is what I was told years ago. Has worked for over 30 women that I know that has done it to the letter.

    lauraoct – For a long time doctors told moms that there weren’t benefits past a year. We now know differently of course. But there are still moms that don’t any benefit in breastfeeding when a baby can just drink cow’s milk. I don’t completely understand that thought process. I think a lot of moms don’t find enjoyment in breastfeeding and can’t wait to wean at a year. It’s sad but I’ve seen it happen, even in my own family.

    styx – I fasten the bottom. I put Alex in front and support his back with my right hand. I put the shoulder straps on my left and the switch hands. Get us both settled and the reach back and fasten the top strap. It gets easier as you do it. I haven’t been able to figure out the hip yet though even with the directions. HAHA! I don’t know how to do the back either. I could figure it out with someone helping me but not alone.

    kelley it is uncomfortable feeding in public at first. Yet you get over it quite quickly and it becomes second nature.

    That baby signing seems interesting. How do you teach them what the sign means for something like ‘help’. Would you ask them if they need help, and make the sign at the same time? I might try a few simple ones, but not sure how to teach them.

    I just ran out of my house thinking my roof was falling in. Obama is in town and some plane entered the ‘no fly’ zone. holy sonic boom!
