1. Your Name/Age: Lisa, 30
2. Babys name: Calvin
3. How old is baby? 9 weeks
4. How much does baby weigh? 10lb 8oz
5. Tell us about sleep! How much are you and baby getting? he will do one 4 hour stretch, then 2 or 3 hours, awake for an hour or so and then another several hours of sleep but by then I am up or at work :confused:
6. Got Milk? How is feeding going? bfing is going good, gotten inot a good routine already so its pretty easy
7. Any issues/problems you are dealing with right now? (babywise or life in general) I'm alone with the kids for the first time this weekend, its going fine. keeping dd busy with new activities. It was so nice out today, we spent most of it outside or shopping Smile
8. When do you go back to work or are you a SAHM? Been back for a while now. Went back a few hours a day after just 2 weeks (crazy I know) then have been almost full time since 4 weeks. Its actually been a lot easier to go back earlier and get settled into the routine faster than with dd having had 12 weeks off.
9.How is your family doing with baby? (tell us about DH/SO, other kids, pets, etc) dh is amzing, he has the kids when I am at work and gets lots of housework done, dd does great with him, she is a good helper. though dh told me the other day that lately she refuses to help with him when I am not home. don't know whats up with that, hopefully it will pass. the dog is just waiting for him to get big enough that he will feed her his food :rolleyes:
10. Anything else to share? I have become far too obsessed with Pinterest.com lately.

1. Your Name/Age: Mandi
2. Babys name: Isaiah
3. How old is baby? 6 weeks
4. How much does baby weigh? 11lbs
5. Tell us about sleep! How much are you and baby getting? I lay him down in his crib about 9pm and the past few nights he's slept until 3am, feed him and lay him back down and he sleeps until 6 or 7am. All the other kids are awake by 7 so after that there's no sleeping for me Lol If he wakes at 6 I usually feed him and lay back down until the other kids wake up and he'll sleep while I'm getting everyone else fed. He still sleeps pretty good during the day too, though he's definitely awake a lot more than a few weeks ago
6. Got Milk? How is feeding going? Well he went from 10lbs even last Thursday to 11lbs even this Friday Wink So I guess it's going pretty good Lol he cluster feeds in the evenings but everything is going pretty well. I'm even getting to pump once a day now, which is nice. Slowly building up a 'just in case' stash in the freezer. Our anniversary is in a month so it'd be nice to get to leave all the kids with a sitter.
7. Any issues/problems you are dealing with right now? (babywise or life in general) He's pretty grunty (is that a word? Lol ) and he's spitting up more than usual. Oh and he's got cradle cap on his FACE! Poor baby, it doesn't look like it feels very good. Everything considered he's a really content little guy though.
8. When do you go back to work or are you a SAHM? SAHM, I'll go back to work when he starts school since he's our last, probably only part time then since I'd still like to be available to the kids when they get off school
9.How is your family doing with baby? (tell us about DH/SO, other kids, pets, etc) Great Smile

3. How old is baby? 2m today, 9 weeks on tuesday
4. How much does baby weigh? We see the dr on Wed ... but I'm guessing 10-11 lbs
5. Tell us about sleep! How much are you and baby getting? My boy loves his sleep. He sleeps from midnight (ish) for 6-9 hours! Some mornings I think Soren and I wake him up when I'm getting Soren up and dressed lol. He sleeps in the day usually for an hour or 2 after his bottle. Soren STTN at 3m, so I'm very lucky Orion is doing it at 2m!
6. Got Milk? Lol How is feeding going? Good - he's drinking 4-5oz every 3-4 hrs and drinks 10+ oz at night before he sleeps for the night.
7. Any issues/problems you are dealing with right now? (babywise or life in general) No complaints!
8. When do you go back to work or are you a SAHM? I have a year off paid, and technically 14 months off because he was born in the summer and I'm a teacher. My hat goes off to those going back to work now, I can't imagine.

5. Tell us about sleep! How much are you and baby getting? Lily does not sleep during the day Sad She goes down for the night between 6 & 8 and wakes around midnight then every 2 -3 hours until 6AM when she is up for the day
6. Got Milk? How is feeding going? I bf and pump after each one and we have lots of milk. Lily cluster feeds and then vomits most of it up. Sad
7. Any issues/problems you are dealing with right now? (babywise or life in general) The acid reflux and colic are keeping us pretty busy. I get annoyed by how everyone feels that they know the answer to our problems and that DH and I are not trying everything possible to help her (not here where I ask for advise)
8. When do you go back to work or are you a SAHM? I go back a week from Monday and I am dreading it
9.How is your family doing with baby? (tell us about DH/SO, other kids, pets, etc) We are doing amazing in this dept.!
10. Anything else to share? Just tired of the crying and screaming and how people look at us in public but sometimes we have to get stuff done and she cries. I try not to take her out so that no one gives us the eye but sometimes I have no choice.

Jessica!

Unless your in a movie theater, I wouldn't give two thoughts to what other people think. We were ALL babies once and no one should expect new parents to stay holed up in their home. But I do hope Lily feels better soon!

Ben

3. How old is baby?
11Weeks

4. How much does baby weigh?
Almost 13lbs!

5. Tell us about sleep! How much are you and baby getting?
Ben will go to bed about 10-10:30 and I wake him up at 6:30 to BF before work!

6. Got Milk?
He'll still have a nursing fit occationaly, but once he latches it goes well. He preferes the pumped milk/bottle, but Im fighting to keep BF'ing when Im around. When I pump he eats about 5-6oz at a time.

7. Any issues/problems you are dealing with right now? (babywise or life in general)
Potty training my 3 year old is the biggest issue right now... Three is not my favorite age i've come to find out. But Ben is wonderful.

8. When do you go back to work or are you a SAHM?
I've been back for a week now, its not horrible, but I still feel like Im forgetting something when I'm without a baby carrier. I would LOVE to be a SAHM.....:confused: ?

William loves his brother but he can be impatient when he wants something and we are busy with Ben.

1. Your Name/Age: Chris, 26

2. Babys name: Lilly

3. How old is baby? 6 weeks, 6 days

4. How much does baby weigh? 10lbs 8 oz

5. Tell us about sleep! How much are you and baby getting? Lilly gets tons, most nights 3 hours at a time, but last night we got a 5 hour stretch.

6. Got Milk? How is feeding going? pretty good, but sometimes she pulls off the Nipple way too hard and i am getting over a blister. ouch!

7. Any issues/problems you are dealing with right now? (babywise or life in general) oh um everything, baby puppy feeling trapped in the house, except for appointments, lack of sleep , and lack of social life. :confused:

8. When do you go back to work or are you a SAHM? Say at home for now, not sure about finding work or when.

9.How is your family doing with baby? (tell us about DH/SO, other kids, pets, etc) Every one is fine with the baby, Dh is great support at night, puppy is too young to mess with baby, older dog Bella loves her, she gets worried when baby cries, and she gets upset when Lilly is on the floor for tummy time. I have a pic of her laying next to Lilly.

10. Anything else to share?
not at the moment.

1. Your Name/Age: Janelle/29
2. Babys name: Evelyn
3. How old is baby? 6 weeks today! Yahoo
4. How much does baby weigh? not sure. She was 7lbs 11oz at 2w 4d old, so I'm guessing 8.5 lbs+
5. Tell us about sleep! How much are you and baby getting? It seems I've been feeding her around 9pm, then again about 2-3am and then around 6-7am so a LOT more than I was with DS#2 at this age.
6. Got Milk? How is feeding going? I think she has a lip tie. Her upper lip doesn't move much and that would explain our difficulty with opening wide enough to latch and extreme difficulty latching in side lying position.
7. Any issues/problems you are dealing with right now? (babywise or life in general) possible lip tie, her poop issue (still). I'm trying to cut my coffee down to 1 cup (12oz) per day and cut my dairy out as much as possible and I've failed on both accounts today. Sad
8. When do you go back to work or are you a SAHM? I'm a SAHM, but I'm taking in another kid on Tue/Thus evenings while a friend goes back to school.
9.How is your family doing with baby? (tell us about DH/SO, other kids, pets, etc) Gosh.. don't really have time for this one. But good news is DS#2 is doing SO much better than I expected him to. :mrgreen:
10. Anything else to share? I'm joining a gym! Yahoo I went for a jog/walk thing yesterday and went 1.4 miles (round trip) and puked on the way back. That means it was a good work out, right? Wink
