  • Or do you mean the front wheels?
  • I love my Joovy Caboose ultralight too!  Both my DD and DS have done this same thing and to be honest, it had nothing to do with their height.  It was just them thinking it was funny.  DD used to suddenly put her feet on the ground too.  Used to dri…
  • DandRAgain: are you 100% sure she doesn't have a UTI?  I'd check for that because that was the only time my girls had accidents.   Same thing here!
  • LOVE my Samsung Fascinate. 
  • The Ferber method worked wonders for us.  And it worked within 2-3 days for all of them.  DS#1 wasn't sleeping at all unless I was up and walking him around at 6 months old.  2 nights later he was sleeping for 12 hours straight, on his own in his cr…
  • Baby 411 was my go to book.  We used it a ton for the first few months with my first.  Now, I always buy it as a gift for baby showers.
  • You should definitely do whatever feels right for you!  With that said, you're just about at that point where your DD#2 is going to start nursing MUCH faster.  Before you know it, what once took you an hour, will only take you 15 minutes. 
  • Not irrational at all.  I had a friend in college who was injured by a glass table when he was a toddler.  He had an awful scar and had some damage to his eye. 
  • DH just had his on Thursday. 1.  45 minutes for everything, including paperwork.  2.  He bought tighties b/c the boxer briefs didn't offer enough support.  He also bought a couple of bags of frozen peas and he iced the entire first day. 3.…
  • Our daycare will not let a child ride their bike without a helmet.  Too dangerous.  We do have to send in their helmets with them though.  There are no helmets at the school that are shared.
  • I found out DS was breech at my 36 week appt.  We scheduled the version for 38 weeks.  At my 37 week appt we found out that he had turned, however he still wasn't vertex.  He was in an oblique lie.  By the 38 week appt/version he was in vertex posit…
  • I think there's a good chance that the baby stays head down, so it's good to remain optimistic!  But, mine was head down at my 34 week appt and ended up being breech/transverse at my 36 week appt.  Since then he's turned back to head down/oblique an…
  • I think it looks pretty darn great and I wouldn't hesitate to let my child wear it to all of the events... even in broad daylight! 
  • I loved my hooter hider and plan on using it again once this baby is born.  I don't really care if people know that I'm nursing.  Seems like common sense to me that I have to feed my baby.  I do care though if someone can see my exposed breast.  I t…
  • I feel your pain!  It is excrutiating.  And I also have the strong, painful braxton hicks.  I don't know how you could possibly sit through a 3 hour class.  I don't know how I could possibly go to work tomorrow!   It has to get better!
  • Both of my babies were here at 38 weeks.  At that point there's a pretty good chance that you won't be able to attend.  I would thank them for the thought, remind them that it is very close to your due date, and plan to attend if you are still pregn…
  • It was very worth it for me.  Although I am sure you will do just fine without it!  One thing to consider is that during my class they told us that drs and nurses often told them that they could tell by how well a patient pushed whether or not they …
  • It's very rude to invite the aunt, uncle, and one cousin and then leave the other cousin out.  I think in that situation MIL or FIL should have double checked to be sure that you and your DH's invite wasn't lost in the mail.  I can't imagine anyone …
  • I feel pretty strongly that if a party is from noon-2 then lunch should be served.  I was irritated last week when we went to a party at 1pm and they only had candy and cupcakes.  Or if they are not going to serve lunch (for whatever reason) then th…
  • You actually don't sound like you're as good as friends as you thought you were.  If you were really good friends then you would actually want her child there.  You would want her to be comfortable and not have to leave her child for an ENTIRE weeke…
  • EliseB0323: jennieliz: Great news to hear the eggs was outgrown.  We've got a delightful regimen of Claritin, Singular, an inhaler, and nose spray for the next 6 weeks until we go back.  Awesome huh? Do you really need all that stuff? …
  • My DH is a III.  He was absolutely adamant that we were NOT naming our son a IV.  Mostly because DH has had so many credit problems with his credit scores being confused with FIL's.  It has been a constant issue for us.  To make matters worse they b…
  • Even though it's not your party, if you're showing there's really not much you can do.  What are you going to do - lie when they ask if you are expecting??  The fact that you're pregnant can just easily come up in conversation.   I wouldn't make…
  • Well, I'm with you.  I think it is absolutely awful to miss your niece or nephew's 1st holy communion.  Awful!  Especially when they had so much notice.  And they only live 2 hours away!?  Your poor DS.  And no, I don't think you are to blame at all…
  • I second the gift bingo idea.  That is my fave.
  • Mine actually didn't feel like menstrual cramps at all.  It felt exactly like I had a giant blood pressure cuff wrapped around my entire abdomen.  It would get really really tight and then release. 
  • hhpd2009: piecesofflare: B!tchy was probably the wrong word.  It came off as more... braggy or smug.  I understand now that you don't feel that way, but that's how it came out.  See, I didn't see that.  My first inclination when I see a…
  • lanie30: KathrynMD: I hate this game; if it says no gifts, please DON'T bring one.  If they ask for no gifts its b/c they already have enough cheap plastic junk in their house and they don't want anymore.  If other people are rude and bring …
  • I wouldn't.  I also consider it a toy because it is a piece of dress up clothing.  And it's really not fair to make all of the other kids jealous and to put the other parents in this position where their kids come home crying because they want to br…
  • Thanks!!
  • Grandpa Lastname sounds appropriate.  My "stepgrandfather" is my grandfather to me and I call him "Pop-Pop."  My DD's stepgrandfather is called "Poppy" even though DH and I call him by his first name.  On the other hand, if you are not close to him …
  • It sounds like you are describing night terrors.  DD has them occasionally, but not as intense as your DS's.  I would definitely talk to the pediatrician about what you can to do to help the situation.  You may also be able to find some tips online …
  • It sounds like it might be night terrors.  I don't really know what to do for them, but the fact that she is not really coherent or completely awake makes me think that.  My DD has just started having these too!
  • Sorry, I guess I'm just sensitive about that because I do live in the country.  I guess if I lived in the ghetto I wouldn't like others calling people who say and do stupid things "ghetto" either.  It's probably just a regional thing though.
  • We got the pink with white dots and it looks NOTHING like the catalog or on-line.  It is much lighter (more pastel) in real life.
  • LOL...so does "country people" mean stupid or something?  While I completely agree that people should know the difference between "roll" and "row," I would hate to classify all people that live in the country that way.  But I know what you mean othe…
  • You should be so proud!    What an amazing thing!  My DH is a firefighter too and a few years ago he and one of his partners saved a baby that wasn't breathing.  The mom fell asleep while nursing and smothered the baby.  Their family has stayed …
  • Yes, in real life.
  • Mmmm, Bottoms Up!  You are making me hungry!
