Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

PB - I'm nervous about flying in Dec with K at 9 months too. She was easy at 8 weeks, but now gets bored more easily, and with her long night-time sleep, I'm a little worried about that getting screwed up by jet lag. I hope we can get things shifted around and get back on track when we come back ho...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Aww, thanks for the comments on M. I think he's pretty cute, but I know I might have a small bias. ;)) Then again, PS'ers make some pretty darn cute babies! MP, yay for sales on the onsies! That is so great. How did the interview go? Mtjoya, glad you got an answer on the test, and hopefully you will...

Re: Another stroller thread...

lovinsparkles, I have the Bumbleride Indie as well. M started sitting in just the seat at about 5 and a half months (before that we used either his carseat or bassinet), and he is on the smaller side for his age. He can't sit up on his own yet (working on it!) but can sit up just fine supported, and...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Ginger, so sorry to hear about A :(( Glad you used that mommy instinct though. Charger, yay on the weight gain! MP, I agree with Mara that I don't know if I would put rice in his bottle at this point either. I think her suggestion to feed him more solids closer to bed time could work, and also to tr...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Well, up at 1pm, ate, changed diaper and a quick play and back to sleep at 2! Jcrow, he has what D and I call "the happy sads" Where he will smile and laugh a bit, but it is often followed by a cry. So he's not super fussy, but not quite his happy self. Sounds like today is better for you!...

Re: Cloth Diapers?

re HE washers, I'm not sure what options you have on your machine, but we have another way that we "trick" the machine to use more water. I do a short cold wash first to rinse the diapers, no detergent, and there is an option to select 'no spin'. This keeps the diapers heavier obviously, s...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Thanks for the support. I think the reason D doesn't think much of his sleep schedule is that he is not the one to get up with him at night, or deal with a cranky baby the next day. However, I do think we are reaching the point where family obligations are dying down, but if it continues, I'll have ...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

So last night was not any better. Do you think it's from something other than his shots? He got them on Monday, and it's now Thursday. He also didn't seem to be just cranky, but actually in pain last night. I wish sometimes he could tell me what was wrong, instead of me just guessing and hoping what...

So we did NOT have a good night last night. M was up half an hour after I went to bed, and then every two hours after that. Crying, which is unusual for him. I was worried about how he was feeling, so I would spend at least an hour with him, feeding, rocking, etc. I guess each time thinking after th...

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

So, as I said, Miles had his four month appointment yesterday. He is 13.5 pounds and 24 inches, so 15% percentile for both. My little peanut! But if you use his adjusted age he would be around 50% for both, so really either way he is doing great. He is growing and healthy so that is all that really ...
