Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

I love all the summery photos on here! Posting a recent one of Weston at our local park. Being home with him all day on summer vacation is both fun and difficult. I just started my third trimester and he's hard to keep up with sometimes! Being home so much with him is really making me appreciate the...

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

I haven't been around in ages, but have been keeping up with some of the PS mamas elsewhere. :wavey: Good to see you all! My little man Weston turned 2 last month. In typical little boy fashion, he is obsessed with cars, trucks, and things that GO. He was almost 3 feet tall and almost 31 lbs. at his...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Summer has been BUSY for us so far, leaving very little time for PS. ;( I lurk sometimes though, and I am glad that all the babies are doing well! :wavey: Welcome to the thread, new mommies!

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Quick post - I went back to work this morning and left Weston with my grandmother. He did not cry and neither did Mommy! :appl: He was excellent for her all day, save the fact he did not want to take a nap longer than 45-60 min. He wanted to play instead. He has slept all night for the past week or ...

Re: baby carriers for newborns during summer?

Julie - Wearing baby in summer will keep you both toasty! See if you can find something in a linen or cotton gauze. Most stretchy cotton wraps like the Moby will only work until baby is about 15 to 20 lbs, but you'll be able to use the linen wraps longer. Sakura makes beautiful linen ring slings tha...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Weston went to bed at 10:30 and was up at 1:30 and 4 for feedings. We got up for the day around 6:30. Not bad, considering he was waking me up hourly just last week!

I wish I could post more with all you mommies, but obviously sleep is at a high priority around here.

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Quick update- Hubby took the baby for a few hours last night so that I could rest (I had about 5 or 6 oz of milk pumped). Then we were up about every two hours to eat over night. Weston just seems to be a hungry fella who doesn't need or want to sleep very long. Poor me! He's napped very little toda...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Weston had his one month checkup today. His head measurement is 14.5 inches (50th percentile). He has only gained a 1/4 inch in length by their measurements (I think that is off, hs newborn clothes are too short!), so he is 21.25 inches and 30th percentile. Weight wise, he is up to 10 pounds 7 ounce...
