    butterflykisses, it is thick and cottage-cheese like, because of the acid in her tummy. It’s kind of like the milk curdles as it is being digested. The longer it has been since the last feeding, the more cottage-cheese like the spit up will seem.

    god-iva- I completely understand. I love cheese and chocolate! And I dont think your selfish at all. Its something you have to approach slowely lol Dairy is what I decided to cut out and I saw a tiny bit of results in two days (she wasent screaming at the breast during the day, just at night.) and 90 percent improvement in about three weeks. I dont ever drink caffiene so that wasent a problem for me. I have to admit I screw up every once in a while and it does not make a big difference at all. I think it was the amount of dairy that i eat that was affectin her. One slice of cheese every once in a while (every two-four days) doesnt show up strong in my breast milk but I cant overdue it or it will cause her to have gas and reflux all night long. Baby steps. Reduce the amount of cups of coffee, reduce the amount of dairy. My opinion (just an opinion) Cut dairy. Completely for a week. If she starts improving cut it for two weeks. If she improves alot you can start adding back little servings of it. When she starts getting the symptoms back you know your limit. Most women with babies with dairy sensitivity can actually have dairy just not normal quantities. I chose to eliminate it completely (except when I screw up) because i have a short fuse and i get annoyed by baby crying easily. I was actually starting to get angry at my baby and i hated the breastfeeding and even started to kinda dislike having a baby again. I get sooo frustrated so easily and I felt like not even picking her up. The zantac helped for a week and stopped completely doing anything (it actually started making it worse) so i stopped zantac and stopped dairy. She still has reflux mostly at night and sometimes early in the morning but its not as terrible as b4 and she doesnt fuss at the breast like she use to. B4 she would take it out on my nipples and latch and unlatch to scream and latch and unlatch to scream by the morning i was so extreamly sore and sleepy not to mention very depressed and she would just be so tired from the screaming and crying that shed fall asleep for 2-3 hours. Now she has reflux but she loves to be on the breast now because my milk is soathing to her now. when she has her reflux episodes i just leave her my breast as a pacifier and after a while she falls completely asleep and it passed.

    Seattle doesn’t get incrediably hot but last summer we had about a month of over 100 degrees. Of course because our normal summers are 70-80 no one has a/c. Me being pregnant, Chris and I spent quite a bit of time in my sunk in tub ‘swimming’. HAHA! He loved to nurse there. Lots of fun too.

    Ok, So, I’m hoping this isn’t another scam miricle cream. But, I ordered Mederma’s stretch mark cream. I know it’s made with onions or whatever. I’ve heard good things about it. I also know it isn’t supposed to be as good for older marks. Mine are 2 1/2 years now. I got them really bad when I had Chris because of PUPPS. I didn’t have a single line until PUPPPS showed it’s horrible head. HAHA! Well, I have them on my tummy and inner thighs. Hopefully it works. Mederma is really good for other scars so you’d think they would be good for these too. Crossing fingers!

    Leslie, if the avocado is hard then it’s not ripe yet. If it has little brown spots on the inside then it’s over ripe. If should be a lime green-ish color. The texture of a banana some what. We just slice it up but it can be mushed. Most adults don’t eat it alone. Usually goes on salads, sandwiches or guac. But I do like it plain or with crackers. I know I’m weird but it’s a healthy fruit. Good fats that help you lose weight.

    My baby is 31/2 months old and has gained a healthy amount of weight at each check up however he seems to only want to eat 5-10 minutes total in a feeding(this is new) before he would eat 10-20 minutes at a feeding. He never ate 15-30 on each side like they say they should. He seems alert and happy after a feeding and is having wet diapers. I try to force him to eat more after he only eats five minutes and he pushes away and cries. I know i should not do this but I become paranoid that he is not eating enough. I just need someone to tell me this is ok. Please help. I am a new mom and I am always worrying.

    wow that officer was a bigger dou**e than the manager. maybe he should have considered how his wife would have felt if she had been asked to leave a public place. I hope she hit him in the back of the head and called him a dufus when he got home!

    kelly-i second what laura said. the first couple of times it’ll seem like this big production but after that you realize that’s natural and nothing to be embarrassed by and you’ll be fine. much like nursing in general, you have to try it more than once before you give up.
