My pleasure Leigh!! Super happy to help. I hope that after a few more nights you don't hear from him - otherwise we should get back on the phone to troubleshoot a little.He's been showing signs (non-stop drooling, constantly chewing on things) for a few months now, but I don't think he's actually fully teething, just yet.
After getting some advice from our sleep consultant that didn't feel right to me, I contacted Maxine / Geminigirl and she's helped ups SO MUCH. I can't say enough good things about her (THANK YOU MAXINE!). We've worked on his bed time attire / environment and it seems to be helping a lot. He's still crying during the night, but it's not as intense as before. I feel so much better about the whole thing now...
Mcbee, I think you're either in the last days of your pregnancy or in the new-born bubble - but either way I hope it's going well for you.
So all in all, as with most births....not entirely what I expected! BUT I got my VBAC and I'm so effin proud of myself, especially given her unexpected size. And breastfeeding is going really well. So despite this unexpected week long hospital stay, I got all I wanted in this birth.
It's definitely a possibility. Things are getting better, very slowly, but he's still waking up a few times between 3am - 5pm. It's so regular that I wonder if he's still looking for his 4am feed. If things don't improve over the next couple of days, I'll check back in with Maxine and maybe trying the Advil is something we're going to have to do.Leigh, the reason I ask is perhaps it doesn't seem like it but the perhaps he's in pain too. Maybe worthwhile trying some Advil one night to see if it helps?
Yeah! Love the Wonder Weeks app. Our little guy is in his "sunny" phase at the moment - a couple more weeks until his next leap. Oh boy...i'm scaredHey Leigh, one more thing, are you familiar with the Wonder Weeks? (There's an app which I find is better than flipping through the book)
That is a huge question and you are going to get very different answers with no definite correct answer. One side will tell you that crying it out will break her out of the pattern of coming into your bed. The other side will tell you that crying it out is going to be stressfull on her and might do lasting damge to her psyche.Congrats Sarah & Kevin!!...Piper is an awesome name
GG....my wife is wondering if there are any issues with letting our daughter cry it out for 45 mins in the the middle of the night. Arwynn's put to sleep around 8:30 and sleeps soundly until around 2am. Then she stands up in her crib and has a fit until we bring her into bed. I'm happy to let her cry it out until she passes out but my wife is concerned that it's bad for her. Is there anything to this?
I get what you are trying to say here, but my mom smoked when she was preganant with me. I don't think I am stunted, but does that make it okay with the knowledge of today.My kids play with those, just like my wife and I did when we were kids. Turns out they're still alive.
Did you & your wife save your FP Little People from when you were kids?Well I'll keep feeding my kids good food and letting them play outside and if the plastic toys from the 70s kill them then you can say I told you so! Assuming they don't choke on them what's the worst that can happen?
My wife saved hers from when she was a kid. She had the house and the school. I had the parking garage but it got lost somewhere along the line. Found another one for free though. The kids love them! That and Duplo!Did you & your wife save your FP Little People from when you were kids?
I saw the awesome Hospital and Family Camper sets for $150/$80. Not sure if I want the vintage FP for me more then my kids.
Just got the plane at Target for $20, not bad compared to ToysRUs ($30).
90% of our books and toys are passed down from family. As much as I love shopping, toys rack up in cost and clutter - so far, the Little People and Wheelies seem to be lasting favorites and not passing interest with my preschooler.
