1. Baby's Name
Dylan Elijah

2. Birth date, how old is baby now?
November 22nd (he was due on December 15th so I feel I'm still allowed to post in here, lol). He's 3 months and 3 days old.

3. What is Baby up to these days (sleeping, eating, etc,)?
He is starting to smile and talk all the time. And he's been sleeping in his crib for about two weeks now, most of the time through the night but some nights he gets fussy and Mommy has to go sleep in his room. He is eating 6.6oz now (formula, breastmilk didn't come in the way I had hoped, got really depressed, dried up) and he seems to be hungry every 3 to 4 hours. Poops regularly, which makes me excited because he used to hardly ever poop and how he's a little poo machine.

4. Any recent or up and upcoming appointments?
He had to go to the doctor on the 18th because he's been very congested, so right now he's on breathing treatments using a nebulizer. Poor little man looks so sickly when he has the mask on. :( But he usually likes getting the mist blown at him, he smiles and coos and tries to lick it. He has to go back for his 4 month well-baby around March 20th, and then its down to New Orleans to meet the rest of Mommy and Daddy's family. (He's only ever met his paternal grandparents, two aunts and a great-grandmother on dad's side.)

5. Questions, comments, observations?
I think he is starting to teeth because his two front teeth on the bottom are poking against his gums so much that you can feel them if you run your finger along his gums. He's a champion drooler too but that comes with the tooth territory. He's pretty happy to sit upright and look out, and he absolutely loves his new carrier. He can cuddle up with Mommy or Daddy and we can still move and use our hands. It's a win-win. :) I just noticed he has a bald spot where his head rests on my arm while I feed him. I felt bad for him so I tried to list cool people who are bald. All I could think of was Hulk Hogan and Dylan's PawPaw.

hi! i was wondering if there was anyone who is using cloth diapers. i've quit my job and since i'll be home with my son i figured we could save money and waste by using cloth diapers at home and disposables when we are out. i couldn't believe the price of a 5 pack! it was $44 for the kushies. i know eventually i will save money in the long run BUT how many do you need to start out with?! how often do you change the diaper? obviously every poopy but what about when they are just wet. i change my son about every hour and half or inbetween if needed and immediately if poopy. i just need a little advice! TIA

1. Baby's Name
Samuel Lee

2. Birth date, how old is baby now?
12/5/2006, 12weeks, 1day

3. What is Baby up to these days (sleeping, eating, etc,)?
Sam eats expressed breast milk. The breastfeeding relationship still did not flourish after a month so we went with pumping and feeding. He still gets 4 bottles of BM a day and one bottle of formula. He eats usually 5-6 times in 24 hours at 4.5-5 ounces per feeding. Sleeping, he's a champ. He's been sleeping well at night for about 6 weeks now. He goes down at about 7:30 and sleeps until 3-4am and then goes right back down until 7-8. It's great. Naps are a little more erratic but we are working on it. He typically has an hour nap in the morning, a 2 hour nap in the afternoon and anohter hour in the early evening.

Sam loves his swing, likes the bouncy seat and play gym. Bats at hanging toys and follows them if I move them around. He's really not into tummy time at all, but we are diligently trying. He enjoys the bath but hates getting out of the bath...sometimes he will literally scream bloody murder when we take him out.


4. Any recent or up and upcoming appointments?
Three month appt is on 3/5.

5. Questions, comments, observations?
I'm so bummed, I have to go back to work on Friday. Just when I'm starting to get use to him! It sucks. I really enjoy our time together. It's going to be a HUGE ajustment.

I have to agree with the member who said she misses her old body. ME TOO! I've been taking Sam to a Stroller Strides class which has been a great experience. Not only is it good exercise but it's great to meet other moms.

Baby's Name
Adrienne

2. Birth date, how old is baby now?
December 16th, 8-ish weeks

3. What is Baby up to these days (sleeping, eating, etc,)?
She sleeps a lot. She usually only wakes up once during the night around 3-4 in the morning. She has a morning nap and an evening nap. Eating is every three hours or so...she gulps down 6 oz like the little piggy she is.

4. Any recent or up and upcoming appointments?
She has an appointment tomorrow morning. Last time she had her shots :( So hopefully this time around it will just be a quick in and out. We hates the offices!!!

5. Questions, comments, observations?
Is she eighteen yet? Um...she's actually a pretty content little kid. She's usually happy to look around and just chillax for the most part. She's got baby acne which I feel terribly sorry for her. Doctor said it'd clear up around six months. Also, she's got this bump she developed on her eyebrow around 3 weeks. The doctor said she didn't know what it is, but to let her know if it changed in size, color, etc. So hopefully, it's nothing to worry about.

It's great to see her smiling these days and dad is actually getting to be more interested in her so that's a load off too.

I've got to say, I miss my old body. Left over stretch marks and poofy tummy, big thighs and butt, and the flabby arms...none of these are doing it for me. *prays for mercy from the post pregnancy gods*

did you actually think you'd get away without them?Collapse )

1. Baby's Name
Michael Kevin

2. Birth date, how old is baby now?
12-9-06, 9 weeks 5 days

3. What is Baby up to these days (sleeping, eating, etc,)?
Mikey has slowed down on eating on some days but not on others. He usually drinks anywhere from 3-5oz every 2.5 to 3hrs, or if he is napping he will go longer. His sleeping is still crappy, but he is a baby and there is nothing I can do about it.

4. Any recent or up and upcoming appointments?
I have my pap smear tomorrow (if the weather let’s me go)

5. Questions, comments, observations?
I have noticed that he only loves his sponge bob on his changing table, if I move it he wants nothing to do with it, if I put it back on his changing table he is all happy and talking away to it. He still likes to watch TV, favorite tv show now is Blue’s Clue’s. I love listing to his sounds and watching him get all excited or something.

2. Birth date, how old is baby now?
December 9, he's 8 weeks and 4 days old

3. What is Baby up to these days (sleeping, eating, etc,)?
He is still not sleeping well, I may get one good night of like 4 hours straight sleeping once every 2-3 weeks. He is eating about 4oz every 2.5 to 3 hours. He sleeps in his car seat, because he can not lay flat at night and the car seat is the only thing that will work right now.

4. Any recent or up and coming He has an apt. tomorrow for his 2 month check up and shots. I have one next Friday the 16th, for my pap.

5. Questions, comments, observations?
He just loves toys! He will stare at things for ever now, he also loves his mobile on his crib and the one on his pack n play.

He also started watching cartoons yesterday and he did this morning while I took my shower and cleaned the house. He gets right into them, kicking his feet and playing with his hands.

He loves to wake up around 2-3am and play, he is so full of smiles and laughs.

Birth Control

I ended up going with the Ortho Tri-Cyclen lo pills, can anyone tell me anything about them. Like side effects? Thanks.

The reason I didn’t go with the Mirena was because my insurance didn’t cover it (plus with all the problems that I had with having Mikey he did not think it was a good idea. I went to see him yesterday and he had to do more work on me and now more stitches are coming out, they have been in their for almost 8 weeks now. The implanon (had side effects of ovary cysts, and I have already had 2 surgeries do to them) I asked about the depo but he said the depo makes you gain weight big time, so he suggested the Ortho and that’s why I did. I took my first one last night at 5:30pm.
