    Hi everyone! I've been away from these boards for so long; it's like I blink and 3 months go by! I don't know how parents could possibly get through an illness without suspending TV rules! You do what more »

    I'm nowhere near the mealtime battles yet, but as a recovering picky eater myself, I feel for you guys. Texture was a big deal for me when I was younger. I think I was about 24 or 25 the first time I more »

    Thanks for sharing your experiences. Is it weird that I didn't realize your body shape changes after pregnancy? That actually makes me feel better because I thought there was just something strange wi more »

    clc, I posted on I&T too, but wanted to echo my empathy. I'm glad you're finding peace through your friend's comments.  Kar, that sounds terrifying. Glad to hear you're all right. Muscles in your neck more »

    clc, so sorry for your loss. I hope you and your DH are doing okay. IPW, sorry about your GMIL, but I'm glad that daycare has been a success! It must be so tough to be back at work already. DD is 11 w more »

    Happy New Year, everyone! How were everyone's festivities? DH and I were in our pajamas on the couch with sleeping pug and a sleeping baby, watching movies and drinking goldschlager with vanilla cream more »

    My DD is 7 weeks and in a 24-hr period usually does six 3-4 oz bottles and we'll do one BF session in the morning, but I think she gets very little from that. It's mostly comforting for her. I'm still more »

    Also checking in with a newbie! IPW, congrats on your DS2. :) My DD is 7 weeks tomorrow and, knock on wood, is a great, mellow baby. She's sleeping like a champ so far and just wants to be held all da more »

    Posted 11/27/2013 05:08:12 EST

    Does anyone have suggestions for baby carriers for petite women? I'm 5' and slim, and the Ergo we have won't even adjust enough to fit around my shoulders. It's great for DH, who's 5'11" and uses it a more »

    Your poor DS, CLC! My DD had a pretty bad rash and we used the lotrimin/CVS brand (clotrimazole). The pedi said not to do more than a couple times per day for more than a week though because they're r more »

    Congrats, IPW! Glad to hear you're all doing well. Can't imagine how you handled vomiting after a c-section....I sneezed and was amazed at the pain!

    Thanks for the support and sharing stories. I haven't checked out the links yet, but I definitely will. It's good to hear where other people have been with all of this. I saw my therapist today and it more »

    My DD will be three weeks on Thursday and she's so awesome. She's also a really good baby (she thinks midnight-5 am is party time though!) but I've been having a hard time. I'm seeing a therapist for more »

  • Posted 11/03/2013 04:44:51 EST

    Thanks, everyone! Time is flying...I can't believe she's 10 days old already. She's such a good baby--not really a crier unless she just wants to be held or bounced (she likes when DH sits on an exerc more »

    Hey everyone, don't have a lot of time but wanted to post an update.  Quinn was born Thursday night, which was actually her due date, and she's awesome. We're all doing really well after my 70-hour la more »

    Thanks, everyone...trying to ignore these contrxns like they said but it's getting harder. Wow....  And northern, I didn't see your post...but show your DH my post, and then show him the calendar! No more »

    Oh man. I've had the weirdest few days...what is today? Wednesday? They've all blurred together. (This will be super long!) Labor started for me (EDD tomorrow) Monday around 8 pm. Called my doula, too more »

    IPW, it sounds like you just have big babies., huh? I've heard that can run in families (who knows if it's true or a wives' tale). That's good that your doctors have no concerns. How long do you plan more »

    Lurking here...and a question for pugslove... Clearly you're a pug person :) I have two 3-year old pugs, and as we know they are a breed withh special personalities! I posted a general question awhile more »

  • Posted 10/15/2013 09:17:38 EDT

    Yeah, this has turned into an interesting conversation! Kar, I completely agree that the work/identity combination is learned. And I think I've internalized those learned social expectations--probably more »

    Northern, it sounds like you have some good options with your mom and friend nearby. Even a couple days a week would help out with daycare costs! Luv, you make a lot of good points. I hadn't even cons more »

    Congrats, thistle! Sorry to hear about the stressful birth, but glad everyone is home and healthy! Daycare rates are like a second mortgage. It's scary. There are two places within walking distance fr more »
