    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Allie- check the flow of the nipple. Is it too slow? We had a similar issue with N, but he would actually finish the bottle (was just a bit fussy/frustrated doing it!). We kept him at the slow flow nipple WAY too long because of his reflux- our bad. Hello to all the mamas- i've been lurking...

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Mere, I was HORRIFIED that he got pink-eye. good thing we caught it super-early. the doc wasn't even 100% sure that was it as his eyes weren't really even pink and bloodshot, but they were crusty/mucousy so he went with that diagnosis. there wasn't a case reported at his DC, so we don't...

    Pumpers unite!

    what a great, supportive thread! i pump about 95% of the time since i've gone back to work (2.5 mos) BF has been a challenge from the get-go. my supply was/is pathetic, and N has never been the most effective nurser. he's very leisurely, easily distracted and has now bitten me a couple of...

    great thread i'm mexican/italian and DH is french canadian. i speak spanish fluently, can understand italian and both DH's and my french is passable. i try to speak spanish here and there to N, but it just doesn't flow naturally. but his abuela only speaks it to him and then he has his...

    I'm loving all the pics! What cuties! And welcome to all the new mamas I've been MIA and lying low the past couple of weeks, but have been reading and sending good vibes to all. My father passed away earlier this month so I've been grieving and spending time with family. Christmas was...

    Nora just gets cuter and cuter. bleh on the peas- I'm also not a fan. DH jokes that N will be just like his papa and love them! Here's another pic, just for you Lulu. I'm limited by what's stored in my phone, but this is a cute one from last week- N playing with his latest toy, a crinkly lion

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Allie- totally get what you're saying. It took me awhile to get the Dom because I wasn't 100% comfortable with how i'd have to obtain it, and neither was DH, who as I mentioned is a medicinal chemist/scientist and knows plenty on the subject of meds. I did my research and eventually came...

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Pupp- so sorry to hear this. I discovered that I experienced a bit of anxiety when I first went back to work. It also kinda hit me on the drive home (to pick him up from DC). I'd get worried about how he did that day- did he nap well, did he eat OK, did he spit up? was he happy? I'm still...

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Yahoo for longer sleep during the night! I have to tell you that as much as I dreaded going back to work/putting DH in DC, it has helped in that he's now on a pretty set schedule during the day. His napping is much more consistent than when I was at home with him. And that in turn has helped...

    another fan of the Nosefrida here. All new mamas should have that, saline drops and a humidifier on hand. Forget the silly (IMHO) stuff like wipe warmers!

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Allie- I'm also on Dom, have been since August as my supply has been super-low since day one (basically started with ZERO). It's helped somewhat, but I'm now starting to taper off it as DH (who's a medicinal chemist) prefers I not be on it long-term. You can get Dom via a compounding pharmacy...

    TGIF I survived last week at the IL’s and this, my first week back full-time at work is almost over! Although it was nice for N to spend time with his grandparents, the visit was just too long and it took a couple of days for us to get him back on track with pacific time. I have to say that he...

    Hello Mamas! Super-quick drive by post from me. We're at my IL's this week- traveled out on Sunday. it was a loooong travel day (2 flights and hour-long car ride), but N was a total trooper. I can't believe it's only Tuesday... My IL's are lovely people, but they live in the middle of nowhere...

    Baby Nurseries!

    This is the little "cubbie" area in the corner. We think it used to be a closet. I call it the "white corner" as the changing table, glider, and bookcase are all white- it was deliberate as none of these pieces will remain long-term The ABC poster is in english

    Baby Nurseries!

    I'm thrilled to share N's nursery. You may recall that we moved into our new home when he was 2 days old, so getting it together wasn't exactly priority until around September (at 3 mos) when we began to think about moving him from our room. It's totally presentable , but there's two things...
