Gem-Hope that your little guy gets his rolling figured out:-) Missy-Thing of and praying for you and your family as you navigate this 6th month! NEL-Wow, Cora loves her food:-) E and B love to laugh at each other too. It's so cute! We have to sometimes tell B to cut it out though as he's all over E....

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Bright! I can't believe that you are 31 weeks!!! So exciting:-) Just wanted to pop in and add my voice to those reassurances re breastfeeding. I never really got engorged but had TONS of milk, it sprayed and dripped and leaked everywhere instead of making me engorged :lol: I was not expecting that a...

Re: Funny conversations with your young child

Ponder, your DD sounds a lot like my 5 year old son. Hilarious and a little perplexing all at once:-) Tara-popsicles definitely might be an at home treat for now! On the 4th I was trying to blow up B's water wings with no luck. I said, "maybe we need a pump". B said (dead serious, like a l...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

NEL-E is a mover and shaker too. He started doing what my DH calls "Rapid rolling" this week which makes him fully mobile. It's hilarious and also terrifying! Wrapping takes a little practice, but is not that hard. You have to get a woven wrap to back wrap, you can't do it with a Moby, but...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Meant to ask...so NEL, she only has 4 bottles a day now? How many oz each? I have been getting lax about pumping during the day at work (I still nurse once during the day), and E dropped his early morning nursing session so he's just eating: 6am nurse, 11am 5 oz bottle, 2:30 nurse, 5:30 nurse, 7:30 ...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

We transitioned E to his crib (well, mini crib since we live in NYC) last night b/c he almost FLIPPED the rock n play with his newfound extreme rolling skills. We thought we should start strapping him in now that he's such a strong roller...bad idea! He decided it was a challenge to break out of/pus...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

dragonfly, just a quick note. I was super anemic during pregnancy (and probably for a few years before) but I didn't find out until delivery and my numbers were in the single digits. I almost wasn't allowed to leave the hospital after delivery and then had to have 5 weeks of IV iron therapy. Definit...

We are waiting until 6 months for solids and plan to do babyled weaning then.
