    Thanks for the feed back girls!  I think I will just go with the flow for another week or two and see if she comes around.  I don't want to push a major change while she still isn't feeling 100%... ju more »

    Hope February is treating everyone well! We are just getting over a super nasty cold... 3 weeks of runny noses, coughing, no sleep, and general crankiness for DD, DH, and myself - no fun :( DD seems t more »

    summer... if it is teething pain, a little tylenol might help.  If you think it is just a disruption to your routine... I totally sympathize.  We are going through the same thing right now.  I rock DD more »

    I totally hear you all on the difficulties of holidays with little ones.  DD did pretty well adjusting her nap schedule (she slept in the car to both events, so that helped a lot) but it was hard to e more »

    I love the LoseIt! app... been using it on and off for years.  Used it for losing 10lbs before my wedding, 5-10lbs periodically when going off the wagon, and 15lbs after the baby.  It is super convien more »

    My pedi has been trying to encourage me to put DD in her crib slightly awake since she was 2 months old, but that has just never felt right to me.  Until about 6 weeks ago we were co-sleeping (never t more »

    Fram, what about an all inclusive resort that you fly to?  I agree that the logistics of a baby in a cabin could be tough.  A resort might offer more options of conjoining suites, balconies, etc  that more »

    Oh... cwag reminded me... I don't actually wash the pump parts during the day.  I rinse the shields before I leave for work, so they are clean for my 11ish appt with the pump, and then I go again abou more »

    Pugs... DD is 9 mos and I've been able to keep up with her pumping at work (barely sometimes, but still).  One misconception is that babies that get bottles of BM will need more volume.  DD has always more »

    Pugs... I hear you on the morning ritual. I still need about 90 mins to get ready in the morning. I nurse DD, shower, feed and let the dogs out, finish packing bags (which I TRY to prep the night befo more »

    Not that you should treat every little symptom... but I personally find that a little Sudafed to stop a constantly runny nose makes me feel a million times better when I have a cold.  With coughs, it more »

    TC... don't worry so much about what time you eat as a family (yet).  DD and I get home around 4:00, so I give her a snack in the high chair and nurse her earlier, then we have a family meal closer to more »

    Arcain... DD was a total fuss bucket around 7 months... and then she started crawling/creeping and was a whole new baby, happy as can be.  I think she just got frustrated wanting to explore and not be more »

    Hi TC, we travelled with DD at about 5 mos.  We opted to go with her as a lap infant and the plane was full both times so we gate checked her carseat.  We opted not to bring the base and just buckled more »

    We were told it was ok at 4 mos, but I all the reading I did said 6 mos is the newer recommendation.  Research shows that their digestive tracks really aren't ready for food that early, and the foods more »

    Posted 09/01/2012 12:57:51 EDT

    Hey... I am a tech person, and even I don't care to know all the ins and outs of my laptop. For my home laptop, I use it primarily for internet surfing and pictures. I knew I liked HP laptops (what I more »

    DD achieved an army crawl!! :o) She is now mobile!  It is so fun watching her explore the house now... she has been all over the living room, harassing the dogs, getting into the plants, trying to eat more »

    Winter.. out of curiosity.. why do you need to finish work? Usually out of general human courtesy fellow coworkers come together and cover for new mamas, and if you are on STD it is technically illega more »

    Cici.. just as an idea... if you do end up with a LO on the low end of the growth curve, consider renting a baby scale for a few months.  My DD had issues gaining weight in the beginning and we were g more »

    hmm... that is a tough one... What about a dipping platter?  You could do a mix of cut fruits (some being better than others for diabetic) with PB and yogurt.  Maybe add some cheese and mixed nuts?  I more »

    Logistics question... what are the thoughts of bringing LO to your dr's appt?  I have an appt with my OBGYN (regular yearly appt) just after my normal daycare pickup time next week.  It would be so ea more »

    IPW... I had the same reaction when I started to use LosiIt!  ... really?  my coffee has 200 calories?  But yes, thinking of the whole day as a budget makes it so much easier to make better decisions. more »
