Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Pancake, Just chiming in to say that I was really sad in the last few weeks of my pregnancy about B no longer having all our attention and no longer being a family of 3 (and since E came 3 weeks early it probably would have gotten much worse leading up to delivery!) The first newborn weeks were hard...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Oh NEL-That sounds really hard with your DH. My DH accidentally let E roll off the couch when he was just a few weeks old. E was fine, but DH was super upset for a few days, but not at all like your DH. Also, almost every mommy in my local mommy group has either dropped their child or had them roll ...

Re: Any baby wearing parents here?

Thanks! We're trying as wrapping is so much more comfortable and pretty than anything else when we do it right. The veteran ladies on thebabywearer get their wraps so high and so tight and so...everything...that sometimes I feel a little like I am not doing it right. but then I just go back to my yo...

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...

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 ...

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...
