    TX though, I still may try it ~ if it isnt very oval it may help at some point ~ therapist came today and we tested him on a few things and he had a different bottle near him and refused to use it and was signing for milk and when I tried that bottle he refused and flipped out. He has used it before and didnt have trouble so it wasnt like it didnt work or have a flow that was bothersome. But he has these times when he just can do change… So we put it in his bottle and he was instant happy baby. He does this with many things, if I feed him on my right arm he does the same if I put him in left arm he is all fine 🙂 even a slight change gets him confused. (Motorplanning part) But that being said I cant feed him on a bottle forever so I do have to transition. If that one is between the one I have and his bottle it may be a good slow transition. I like the long spout/nipple on it or is photo not really accurate?

    ***GRACO STROLLER RECALL****
    Graco Children’s Products is recalling 1.5-million strollers after some children had their fingertips amputated by canopy hinges.

    The recall includes certain model numbers of Graco’s Passage, Alano and Spree Strollers and Travel Systems.

    The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the Pennsylvania company received seven reports of children placing their fingers in the stroller’s canopy hinge while it was being opened or closed.

    Five children had their fingertips severed and two children received cuts on their fingertips.

    The recalled strollers were made in China and sold by major retailers nationwide from October 2004 to December 2009.

    For more information and a list of model numbers, consumers can call 800-345-4109.

    Michelle, just a suggestion: Craig’s list is a blessing in situations like this. More often than not you can get a really nice, easily used AFFORDABLE product if you look into it. We got a BOB jogging stroller for under a 100 bucks and it rocks if you don’t mind hand-me-downs.

    Hi Ladies, I am hardly on this site anymore. Life in the past 6m has gotten really hectic. I need some help and advise regarding my 20m old son. Recently my husband needed emergency back sx and is on diablilty so now we can’t afford the house we are renting. We are having to move into a friends house and rent the master bedroom. This means that my son is going to have to share a room with us. He has been sleeping in his own room since he was 6 weeks old. He isnt a deep sleeper at all and he still wakes up in the middle of the night of ten because he is teething. I am having major anxiety about it. If anybody can please give me some tips and pointers that would be amazing.

    manda – The first thing, try getting a noise maker. Something that will play white noise or use a fan or humidifier. They will give good backgroud noise and help let your child sleep through some of the other noises that you both will make when moving around after bedtime. Also, maybe if you can make a section of the room for your LO so that they can have a darker area (with blankets/sheets/curtains) so the light from TV or lamp won’t be as noticable. Good luck with everything. I hope your husband is going to be ok. That is a tough situation.

    hi notsmithers,
    i know how frustrating it easy. at one point my daughter was eating all the food in the small jars and then she stopped liking them. same thing with the cereal. she seemed to want to eat our food at that point. also she wanted to eat stuff by herself, that was very messy and i dont know if she was eating a lot but it was what she wanted. at 7 months mine didnt want a lot of variety in fruit but maybe yours is more sophisticated? anyway try and try again. he may be teething and not want to eat that much too.

    My two month old daughter has been a joy. Breastfeeding didn’t go as planned, ny nipples were so sore they bled. I had to supplement. I do bf at night or first thing in the a.m., but she gets mad because I’m not producing as much. It’s kind of funny to watch her get angry at my breast! I will recommend the Miracle Blanket that swaddles your baby. She has been in it since coming home and when she reached 3 weeks, started sleeping 4 hours at a time, then going back to sleep after eating for another 4. Now, she goes to bed at 10 pm and up at 6 am. It’s a blessing!

    Not sure exactly but there may be something brewing perhaps or teething ~ hard to say but fevers are known spike more at night then daytime typically. I would call doc just to have a check to be sure he is ok ((()))

    luvbeingamom, Thanks for the input i think i am going to order one of those asian screens to put next to his crib to seperate him from us. i know it is going to be a huge adjustment on all of us. I just want to make it easier on him. Ill keep you updated on the situation. keeping fingers crossed it all works out. We don’t have any other choice at the moment

    I have a question… My 3 and half yr old son last night spiked a fever of over 103 at around 2am. He didn’t seem ill or say he didn’t feel good last night. he was fine. This morning, same thing. He is fine. Any ideas what can cause a sudden spike in fever with no other symptoms?

    My first son was vintage bears, my second was mother goose the cow jumped over the moon. My third is Puff the Magic dragon 🙂 We had also considered Peter Pan for our 3rd.

    thanks ladies, we did give him tylenol last night which was a bit of a battle itself. He didn’t want to take them b/c the last time he did (months ago) he vomited right after. So he was terrified of doing thatagain. But after getting him to calm down he took it and by morning his fever was gone and hasn’t been back. He is being a bit more lathargic so i am going to watch it and see. If it happens again i will contact the doc and prob go in.
