    I totally side eye my good friend for taking her 10 week old for chiropractic adjustments twice a week. I used to go to a chiropractor myself, but I never thought it was all that great, and I can't imagine doing that to a baby.

    I guess mine would be that I do take my baby to a chiropractor!! :) he's my husbands best friend. Don't worry though - they don't adjust like an adult adjustment. I can't even tell when he's done it. He describes it as as much pressure as you would use to check an avocado for ripeness. I probably wouldn't pay though for it since he doesn't really have a need, but since we have a heavy discount LO gets adjusted when I do. I would pay though if LO had colic. It can sometimes really help with that.

  • I have another (grosser) FFFC:


    I find dog hair in LO's poop. Everyday. Now that she's rolling all over the place she can't be confined to a blanket or a play mat. We keep her on the rug that I literally vacuum daily, but she manages to ingest dog hair anyway. I find it really disgusting.

    If it makes you feel better, now that I'm shedding I find MY hair in LO's poop.

  • I have one that I'm ashamed of. H has never put LO to bed (at night or for naps). In fact no one has, other than me. Now I'm afraid she doesn't know how to go to sleep without me. It's not that there haven't been offers I just don't take anyone up on it because she can be a handful for no reason sometimes.

    Ditto. I go to weight club once a week at 7:30pm for an hour and a half and in that time she will wake 3 times crying. She never does this on any other day. It's stressful for us all. I don't know what to do. I think I need to pump and hand over the baton to MH a couple of times a week.

    Don't be ashamed! I've barely let anyone put my two year old to bed, besides DH. And, I'm 100% sure DS2 would torture anyone else trying to put him to bed. Bed=mommy...well, mommy's boob

    I have nothing interesting but I do plan on lying to my mother and sisters today and the next little while. My mother is convinced A is too skinny and small because my sons were much bigger. A is over 17 lbs as of last week and won't be 5 months until the end of the month, she was 26 inches at her 4 months appointment.

    She isn't a giant baby but not small either. I have decided to tell them she is now eating rice cereal or oatmeal just so I no longer have to hear "why won't you feed that baby?" Or "why do you want to keep her so small?" Or "maybe she will be a more pleasant baby when she isn't so hungry."

    A is a wonderfully pleasant baby in reality. I plan to lie about what and how much she eats because I can no longer take it.

    EDIT to fix spacing

  • Hosted a dinner recently and I passed off pre-seasoned ready to cook vegetables as fresh from the local farmers market. 
    I haven't flossed since I gave birth...yuck I know!
    I have been cursing like a truck driver lately (maybe worse than a truck driver.)   Basically, I can't raise my voice in front of the baby and cursing has been a way to express anger to DH without yelling.  I am really working now to curb this otherwise my baby's first word might be four letters!

    This makes me laugh because that's the exact size DD is and people say I over feed her (she is EBF and eats every 2 or 2.5 hrs)

    You just can't win. People always have something to say.

    I know exactly what you mean. I have been here since first trimester but I am not so well known. I rarely start threads because usually someone has already asked or announced what I want to ask or say. (My baby was late in May so it is all been there done that)

    I do post replies and participate in other threads but sometimes what I want to say has already been said.

  • I don't feel like doing Christmas this year. All the decorating and the shopping is exhausting. I find me and DHs family really hard to buy for anything they want or need is way over what we can afford. I just want to skip this Christmas. Go ahead and call me Scrooge! I am usually super festive but this year I'm just not feeling it.

    It does, thanks! She may be eating my hair too, but it's blonde, so it's hard to spot!

    My hair is suddenly everywhere. I've found hair in her fists, diaper and neck rolls as well.

  • Oh, I thought of another one. I still check to make sure Lexie is breathing when she is asleep. Sometimes (shame) to the point of unintentionally waking her up. Husband gets irritated, but I have such a vivid imagination my mind goes from, "Awww, sleeping baby," to, "THE STILLNESS OF DEATH!" pretty quickly. I really really need to chill the F out.

    I still do this. I suffer from anxiety and I use that as my excuse. I was/am terrified of SIDS so much more so this time. It's getting a bit better. I don't wish the worry on anyone but I'm glad I'm not the only one.
  • I had yesterday and today off. Today I sent W to daycare and had a really lazy day. All I did was sleep, eat, and pump. I'm getting my haircut in a few minutes so I can feel like I did something productive. ;)

  • @Lolalipsy - what is your word for pumping? Does everybody there refer to it as expressing milk?

    @TundraGirl - it has been sooo hard to wean myself from my tracker spreadsheets. I've gotten to the point where I'm okay with just using the daycare sheets and not tracking anything at night...but it made me so nervous at first!

    @eroplane - You have what I consider to be the cutest damn non-baby avatar here. I giggle every time I see it. I've wanted to tell you that for a while, and I guess this is as good a place as any.

    I guess my FFFC is that I never charted anything. Not even once.

    I feel this way too! I've been here since the day my test said positive but I mainly lurk. I've been trying to do better though and help where I think I can. This board is awesome! Just about every question I've had has been addressed here!

    @TundraGirl have you seen this?!

    I'm on mobile- what is it? I have to know!

    ETA: Just found it. Processing. I hope I'm not that obsessive, but I can see some of myself there.

    You should be able to click on the word "here" in her post. At least I can from mobile.
