    We do a mix of pancake or waffle most days, and sometimes an english muffin.  I sometimes sprinkle a little powdered sugar on the pancakes to give them a bit more taste. Also send fruit and a breakfas more »

    Hi all,  I know there are a lot of us whose LOs are getting close or right around a year.  DS is getting close, and I am starting to think about how to cut the bottle out.   Interested in hearing how more »

    Hi all,  We are hosting a bbq (1st with DS who is 10 months) this weekend. Any helpful advice out there for easy planning/food ideas, setting up while keeping DS happy, and any other tips?   Also goin more »

    Poppy-- no worries! We give DS a bath every night as a part of his bedtime routine, but if he misses a night here and there, it is fine.  We also slather him w/ lotion after, so dry skin isn't an issu more »

    Phew...I feel much better.  I too thought bottle being bad at bed meant in bed so didn't pay too much attention until recently.   We just had our 9 month appt (well, he was 8.5 months), and she talked more »

    Hi all,  Was wondering (especially for all of you with babies around the same age- DS is almost 9 months), what your bedtime routines are?  I've been reading a lot about not giving a bottle right befo more »

    Silver, sounds exactly like what we went through w/ reflux!  It was right around when he was 2 weeks old.  DS started the clearing the throat thing, and would spit up even up to an hour or so after ea more »

    Daisy...I hope that link is the one that if you get 3 others to buy, you get yours free!!  I just bought one! DH and I talked about getting a cleaner once/month to do a thorough cleaning of the house. more »

    Hi ML,  I found this article to be interesting on PPD relapse after returning to work:  http://blogs.wsj.com/juggle/2009/08/24/returning-to-work-after-postpartum-depression/.     I hear you on feeling more »

    Posted 04/13/2011 12:24:56 EDT

    Hang in there Silver!   You are in the stage where sleep habits are non-existent and every night it will be a new (and pretty much maddening) experiment in attempt to get the baby to settle down!  I k more »

    HI Fram,  I read Weisbluth, and it was helpful, but I found Babywise to be the most helpful in the beginning.  It was an easy read too (nice in the chaos of the first few weeks).  DS was up until 9:30 more »

    Hi All,  DS is 7.5 months now and seems so old and wise lately!  I've definitely noticed that he is a lot more in tune to the world around him.  I think he is starting to recognize object permanence n more »

    Hi All,  Wanted to update.  I talked w/ DSs primary teacher about the situation in the morning.  She immediately said that it should not be that way (she isn't usually in until 9am) and that she would more »

    Thanks GC!  I hear you about not on a school night!  I thought about it last night, and decided not the way to start a long week so back to the swaddle we went, and back to sleeping through the night more »

    Stephanie...very interested in hearing how the no-swaddle thing is going!  Please keep posting about it.  We are struggling to kick the swaddle habit for DS who is a little over 6 months.   We tried o more »

    Thanks for the expert advice CTDC!  I really appreciate it.  Teacher in question works only part time, so DH only saw her one more time last week.  He decided that he isn't ready just yet to talk to t more »

  • Posted 03/02/2011 02:50:02 EST

    Oh Daisy!  I didn't even think of that.  Her profile is public!  I think DH will get defensive if I bring it up.  :(   BTW these aren't even pictures she's taken.  She copies them from my FB photo alb more »

    Thank you all for the feedback.   The norm is definitely to find a place to put your baby when you arrive. Aside from the first few days, no staff member has taken DS for us.  Is this unusual at most more »

    Hi Poppy,  I agree with GC about daycare having less sting of jealousy than family! Although I joke around saying to DH and DS, "Miss teacher's name is not your mommy".  I imagine I would have a VERY more »

    Hi All,  DS is 6 months now and is just so darn cute!  Went to Dr last week and he's weighing in at a little over 16 lbs and is 26 inches.  Like Canuk, he's hasn't mastered rolling over (has only done more »

  • Posted 03/01/2011 10:43:17 EST

    Thanks All.  Hmmm...that's a good point Alf.  I assume that she is not on break and that her shift has started b/c there are 5 infants there at that time, and I think that would exceed ratio if only 1 more »

    Hi All,  Need your opinions.  Each morning when we drop off DS at daycare, there are two teachers in the classroom and 4-5 infants.  One of the teachers is great.  She is trying to feed 1-2 of the bab more »

    Hi Silver,  We have the snugride 35, and I hate it.  :)  Seriously...it's so big, bulky and heavy.  DH has a Saab 93, and it barely fits in the backseat behind the passenger side where we have the bas more »

    Good question Memes!  I was also wondering when folks started sending solids to daycare?   more »

    Hi All,  DS is now 5.5 months!  He's such a ham, always smiling and ready to play!  I'm happy to report that he's been sleeping through the night almost everyday for the past week!!  It's so amazing t more »
