Shepsmomma what kind of diaper are you using? WHen my son was younger he would constantly pee out of his huggies diapers and well any diaper even pointed down until I used the huggies swaddlers. He is also has good bladder and kidney function. He pees a lot. So changing him often was the key as well. Atleast every 1.5 to 2 hours or sooner if needed. He is now 6 months old and now we can use pretty much any type of diaper but changing him every 2 or so hours is still needed because of him peeing a lot. Otherwise his diaper feels like a rock from being so full. lol.View Thread
Carson 6mo was 16lb 11oz at his appointment a week ago
Fun Firsts: He's figured out how to go from belly to sitting on his own now. Oh and I ordered bubs costume. He is going to be a tiger baby. Oh and he loves bananas. We started him on baby food 2 days before he hit 6 months (he turned 6 mo on a monday and I started it that sat before). He has had squash, sweat peas, peaches, and bananas loved all of them and he tried a turkey and gravy but wasn't to keen on that yet. He also likes apple flavored baby rice as well.
Monday Moans: Stupid AF showed up last night without warning. I am on implanon so I never had an idea of when its going to show. This time it was 51-52 days since last one
For myself: Ummm
Dinner: I have no idea. I was planning to invite the inlaws to dinner and make spaghetti with ground turkey and garlic bread then realized I have a meeting till 6:30ish which means I won't even get home till after 7 so thats no good. So I am not sure what I am going to make now. Maybe grilled cheese and soup.View Thread
Try gripe water. I don't know if it was that, that necessarily worked for my little man but it seemed when he had not gone in like 3 days and I gave him that he would get a very large poopy diaper within a few hours to a day. Also you could try adding more fruits to her diet. I noticed recently since we just started carson on baby food (he turned 6months almost 2 weeks ago) and noticed he seems to be going almost daily now. Peaches seemed to really do the trick. Prune juice could work. Also, when I was younger I was told pear juice (you can get it in the section where the baby food and stuff is where its not all syrup its a lot better for you by gerber) and to try that. You may want to dilute it a bit because it can be kind of strong.Best of luck!View Thread
still doesn't show up. But it may depend on browser, fb among other things. I finally committed to a costume and ordered it today. Carson is going to be a tiger baby. He's gunna look so cute. I like the bunny idea, however, his 1st birthday is on easter this coming year so I am going to do something bunny related for that View Thread
we won't be doing 1/2 birthdays but on a more fun note. We are going to be starting solids (he has been doing rice milk for about 4 weeks but otherwise has only had mommys milk). We are going to start vegetables this weekend!. On a not so fun note, my husband and cousin (who is currently staying with us and he 2 children who stay part time) both are sick and little man has a little bit of a cold now too.View Thread
Carson will be 6 months on monday! Can't believe its gone by so fast. He will be getting his check up that day and I will be able to give stats then
Firsts: Carson is still working on his little tooth nub and now he is working on trying to crawl. He has gotten the hands and knees and rocking thing just hasen't figured out how to put it all together yet. Its so cute though because he gets so excited. He can scoot to the side and backwards and in circles just not forward yet. Oh and we bought him a jumparoo thing yesterday. He loves it! (played in it for almost 2 hours just bouncing up and down and wriggling and playing with toys)
Monday-ish moans: umm still really smokey off and on and so asthma still not so happy. Out of the 10 fires though most of them have been mostly contained if that makes sense. Our air has been at hazardous levels for about 2 weeks now. We had one good day yesterday but the smoke came back today and back at bad levels again. bleh. To the point that people have to wear masks outside. The DOH is handing out small particulate masks as a result.
Doing for myself: umm I bought myself a new pair of work pants lol
Fall: we are feeling smoke lol. Its cold at night but warm in the day time.View Thread
