Mommy's Name: Sandra

Baby's Name: Emerson

How old is baby now? 12 weeks

What size clothes and dipes does baby wear? 3-6 month, 6 month sleepers. Size 2 or 3 diapers.

How is baby sleeping and napping? He is finally starting to take longer naps during the day, which is nice. At night he is still eating at least 4 times, so that could be a little better. I'm tired!

Are you breastfeeding? How is it going? Yippee! Almost made it to 3 months with breastfeeding! We're doing well with it. I am so glad I didn't give up back in December. I don't love it, but at least it's not excruciating anymore. He has had 2 bottles of formula - I'm starting to give him one once a week, just so he can get used to them for when I really need to be out (especially because he still eats every 2 hours most of the time). I hate pumping. So he'll get formula when he has a bottle, but Im OK with that. I hope to BF to 6 months, then we'll see what happens.

Formula feeding? How much and how often does baby eat? When he has formula, he drinks 4 oz.

Do you fit back in your regular jeans yet?!?!? I fit in to them around the 2 month mark, not that they look all that great! I still have a lot of jelly belly that jiggles around on top, and the tight waistband doesn't help.

Anything else to share: DH and I have been discussing baby #4 Wink Crazy. The soonest we would get pregnant would be in September, and have a June baby next year. A little scary but at the same time it would be nice to just get all the pregnancy and baby stages out of the way sooner than later! I am slightly concerned for my sanity, but I still feel like I want 4 kids.

Scared of the camera!

Happy boy

Mommy's Name: Julie

Baby's Name: Logan

How old is baby now? Almost 3 mos!

What size clothes and dipes does baby wear? 6mos tops, 3-6mos bottoms, and size 3 dipes.

How is baby sleeping and napping? Pretty good! Doesn't usually have a nap in the am anymore (gasp!), but will do a 3hr nap in the afternoon, and sleeps from about 7:00pm-7:00am, with one or two feeds in between there. Last night he did a 7hr stretch! It was fantastic.

Are you breastfeeding? How is it going? Yep, bf'ing is going amazing. He's a really good eater, and has gotten much quicker in the past weeks, so its going well!

Formula feeding? How much and how often does baby eat? No formula yet, but I would like to start giving him a bottle here and there, to get him used to it, and so maybe I can go out for more than 2hrs by myself!

Do you fit back in your regular jeans yet?!?!? Ummm.... no Sad I am having such a hard time losing anymore weight! I am watching what I am eating, and am working out 3x a week, and cannot for the life of me lose anymore! I usually can't lose anymore until I stop nursing.. and then I drop it really quickly. Strange, huh?

Anything else to share: Umm.. today is Family Day here in Ontario... and where is my dh? Working! Grr... He worked over 50 hours last week, and then had a 12hr course on Saturday, so he hasn't been home much. I'm going kinda crazy, and could really use a break from the kids. He says he would like to leave work early (which is easy to do, since we own our own business!). LOL.

A recent pic (please!) Right.. well, if you have me on fb, you should see our photoshoot from a few weeks ago-pics turned out awesome!

Mommy's Name: Jen

Baby's Name: Carter

How old is baby now? 4 months on Saturday! Where does time go?!

What size clothes and dipes does baby wear? 3-6 month clothes and size 2 diapers

How is baby sleeping and napping? aMaZiNg!!! He is on our schedule though...sleeps 2am-10am, bottle, 1030am-2pm, up for the day. He naps during the day too. It would be nice if he went to bed a little earlier but we can't fault him for being like us Wink

Formula feeding? How much and how often does baby eat? He takes a 40 of Gentlease a day! He eats on demand so it varies.

Do you fit back in your regular jeans yet?!?!? Uhm...yes but it isn't pretty.

Anything else to share: We started solids around 3 months but not to replace any formula.

Jen, what solids is Carter on? Can I ask why you started him on them? I'm just curious! Logan is 3mos old tomorrow, and over 14lbs, so I'm wondering if he needs more, as he still wakes up once a night to eat (I am exclusively bf'ing him).
He looks like he's doing fantastic! And is your schedule like that because of your work? (or dh's work?) Just wondering Smile

Mommy's Name: Jasmine

Baby's Name: Laszlo

How old is baby now? 3.5 mo

What size clothes and dipes does baby wear? Size 2 dipes. Size 6-9 month clothes, and some 9 months, but the waist bands kinda hang on him

How is baby sleeping and napping? Pretty good! He sleeps like a boss at night - 10pm - 9am by my side. He initiates approximately 2 nurses during that time. During day, he has a long morning and afternoon snooze plus a short evening nap.

Are you breastfeeding? How is it going? Still breastfeeding. We're okay. I've quit fenugreek due to concerns about it lowering my thyroid function, and I'm inconsistently taking domperidone to increase milk supply. He's actually initiated a self-weaning from the nipple shield which is AWESOME!

Formula feeding? How much and how often does baby eat? We supplement with Earth's best organic dairy formula. He generally gets about 30 ounces from bottle per day, plus 10-12 from me.

Do you fit back in your regular jeans yet?!?!? Yup. I did at 8 days postpartum...but I've not lost a pound since then. Ugh.

Anything else to share: We're doing baby sign...hopefully he'll start signing back in a few months. I'm excited to start making baby food in 2 weeks!

A recent pic (please!) Will add soon!

He has had baby oatmeal, sweet potatoes, bananas, and prunes. He's been showing signs of being ready (watching us eat, opening his mouth when we eat) so I went ahead and started him. It was mostly for practice and introduction to the spoon, swallowing, etc. I don't give him solids every day...only a few times a week. His tongue thrust reflex is gone but he's pretty messy when I feed him!

Our schedule is crazy...Matt works 330pm-midnight 5 days a week and I work 9-9 3 days a week, rotating, so I'm pretty much on Matt's schedule too. We've always stayed up late and slept in and Carter has adapted to that schedule too. I was like that when I was pregnant with him so I guess it has been ingrained since birth. I dread it when he has to start going to bed and getting up for school...yikes.

Baby's Name: keira

How old is baby now? 3 months tomorrow Smile

What size clothes and dipes does baby wear? Size 2 dipes when she does where disposable but other then that she is in cloth full time

How is baby sleeping and napping? Napping is a hit or miss, and she is starting to sleep really well. I think she is going through a growth spurt as she has been wanting to stay attached all night but when I take her off to rock her then she will fall asleep and stay asleep for a couple hours.

Are you breastfeeding? How is it going? It's going really well and I have gotten over the fear of breastfeeding in public Smile Although I;m pretty sure my supply is adjusting to how much she needs now and the engorgement that I had last week is completely gone and it makes me worry that I am losing my supply but when she does eat I can hear her gulp until she is done so that makes me happy at least.

Formula feeding? How much and how often does baby eat?

Do you fit back in your regular jeans yet?!?!? Heck no! I wish, but with my hip problems I am unable to get out and walk or do any type of excersise without being out of commission for the next 2-3 days Sad

Anything else to share: I have started to write a novel so I am very excited about that, although I don't get very many long lengths of time to write, it's still exciting to start writing again Smile

A recent pic (please!) On the laptop and havent got any recent pics.

Baby's Name: Liam

How old is baby now? 15.5 weeks

What size clothes and dipes does baby wear? 3-6m, size 2, he's 15 lbs

How is baby sleeping and napping? seems to start a nap about an hour after a meal, but lately daytime naps are short only 15-45 minutes. STTN for last week & now the rails came off that & he's all over the map... the last 2 nights waking and yelling between 12 -2am, every 20 minutes gah. Not sure what is up with that but hopefully its shortlived. 1 nurse/night again. Trying to get him used to a portable dream-machine white noisemaker during naps and have him nap at least once a day in his crib, i am a bit worried we will be battling naps. Am taking pea-pod so he can hopefully sleep poolside if need be!

Are you breastfeeding? How is it going? yep, fine mostly, sometimes i wish dh could nurse him, lol. He spits up a ton. I should get bottles in him but it seems like such a hassle compared to direct from the source, lol.

Formula feeding? How much and how often does baby eat? some days i wish we did

Do you fit back in your regular jeans yet?!?!? Yes ages ago, but need shorts for the disney cruise and that will not be pretty, cellulite city lol

Anything else to share: Liam rolled back to tummy so now we will be extra careful on the change tables & all during traveling. He likes to touch the hair on the top of his head, its so cute. Holiday starts Saturday & cruise leaves Sunday, am excited to go but stressed about packing, so much to do still, must fetch and wash the travel-stroller in storage 4 example. Flight will be short & i am sure DS will do great, we hope hes a good traveler like DD always has been. We are going with our friends so DD and her friend as super excited :D.

A recent pic (please!) ​ummmm i will work on that!

How is baby sleeping and napping? Sleeps very well during night, solid 10 hours. Has several cat naps but nothing substantial.
