UO

I just got back on this week or so because my grandma died and I had a few things to deal with. Looking forward to hearing some good UOs!

Re: UO

  • I can't think of a good one today...
    I guess steming from the funeral: I enjoy being around my Step Dad's siblings more than I enjoy being around my mom's.
  • I think the special swaddle blankets are a waste of money. You can do the same thing with a receiving blanket.

  • I don't think Paula dean is racist. I think she's ignorant. And when people jump to call something racism, it dilutes actual racism. Also, I don't agree with those companies letting her go. If people feel they don't want to buy her products fine, but at least give the consumers a choice. FTR I'm black.

  • Besides BFing having two LOs has been so much easier than I expected. That could change very quickly but so far so good.

    I agree. There are so many people who say and do way worse than that. Not to mention it was like 20 years ago. Not that it compares in the least bit but you can't charge people with certain crimes after so many years. Why can they bring this up now after so long?

  • It's frustrating to me when some of our moms show up only on threads where someone is being flamed.


    BFP #1 – 4/14/12 – Ectopic Pregnancy – MTX 5/11/12

    BFP #2 – 9/2/12 – Our sweet rainbow DD born 5/23/13

    BFP#3 – 1/5/14 – EDD 9/12/14 – natural m/c 2/16/14image

  • I hate when I mention that we are no longer breastfeeding that people try to be understanding and say, "oh, yeah, it's hard work." It makes me feel like they think I gave up because it's hard and I didn't want to work hard enough. Sigh...

    Oh and the swaddle blankets? So worth it for my little Houdini. The only one he hasn't busted out of consistently is the miracle blanket... he busts out of swaddlemes and receiving blankets... startles himself... and wakes up repeatedly.

    I suck at swaddling so the Swaddle Me has been a lifesaver, especially in the middle of the night.

    When people talk about things other than what their babies

    dump looks like or the state of their nipples, im sure they 

    will come back.

    I also think there are celebrity men who have used comparable terms about other groups who still have a career. Ugggh.

    I love the SwaddleMe swaddles. I find it easier to get a tight swaddle with them than receiving blankets.

    Our LO is the same way with swaddles! I'm bummed I spent so much money on other swaddles before finding the miracle blanket, but it's the only thing that works.

  • I'm enjoying the whole new set of moms that have joined in since our babies were born. I'm glad some of the originals stuck around too.

  • I don't think swaddle escape qualifies one to be called "Houdini," unless said swaddle escape includes padlocks and takes place dangling upside down underwater.

    Are you implying people put their babies to bed some other way?

  • My UO is A slept from 11:30 last night to 6 this morning and I have mixed feelings about it. I like the sleep but for some reason I feel like that's too long for her to go without eating. She is five weeks.

    Exactly. I feel badly for her. It was so long ago and I don't understand why it was made into a scandal now, and why she's being dropped from all these endorsements. People make mistakes, she apologized, lets move on.

    That's exactly what I meant. Plus, his crib is encased in glass and I sell tickets. Need to pay for college somehow, right?

  • OP, sorry to hear about the loss of your grandma.

    I don't care for those big, flowery headbands for baby girls.

    Crazies? I thought its been extremely tame lately. I feel like the crazy posts died out since the babies were born. It definitely has been boring.

    Yes people make mistakes. What she said, however long ago, was not a mistake. It was racist. It came out and the people who endorse her products do not want to be associated with someone who is racist. End of story. She is a public figure and unfortunately this is what happens when you're in the limelight, you ish gets put on blast and your skeletons come out to haunt you.

    I disagree. I can never swaddle LJ as tight with a receiving blanket as I can with a swaddler. I also never ever feel comfortable putting her in the crib when she's swaddled in just a receiving blanket that's not really secure. She's a big wiggler and always ends up getting her hands out. If the blanket isn't secured by velcro, I know she will get it over her face.

    ETA: Swaddle blankets are also a life saver for those of us who aren't supposed to swaddle the baby's legs. LJ was born breech and there is a chance that there's something wrong with her hips. Until we get another ultrasound, the pedi told us to only use the swaddlers and not the receiving blanket because we're supposed to leave her legs free.

    This must be an Owen thing. My Owen busts out of everything except the miracle blanket. It has been a life saver at night.

    No crazies, just overweight babies, with moms that wear corsets.

    virtual thumbs up
