I read in What to Expect the First Year that you shouldn't give your baby egg whites until she is a year old. Just wondering if anyone knew why. I'd like to expand her diet and was considering scrambled eggs. TIA
This morning DD rolled off the bed. I feel terrible about it. Shes not hurt or anything, just scared the crap out of both of us. I knew she was waking up, but my husband had fallen asleep on the couch and i was making sure he was awake for work. I was gone maybe 30 seconds and came back in time to watch her fall. I feel like a bad mom. Shes never done that before. Usually when she wakes she lies there and babbles until i wake up or come get her. Guess thats changed now that shes 9 months old
Anyway, my question is how do you keep yoru baby in bed? I don't want to give up cosleeping yet, but now my husband is insisting on getting her in her crib again. Our mattress sits pretty much right on the floor( it was way too high up for me when on the frame) so she didn't fall far, but i know my husband and i would sleep better if we had a way of preventing this .Please any advice would be great.
My DD turns 9 months old next week, and I'm still having trouble adjusting to motherhood. There never seems to be enough time in the day to do everything that needs to be done. One thing that is really suffering is the house. It is a complete wreck! I can't keep up with the housework, work fulltime and take care of the baby, too. My husband works long hours and is simply a messy person, so he really isn't much help.
My question is how do you all manage your lives? I think I need to find some sort of balance in my life. The weight on my shoulders is really starting to get to me. Any tips or tricks you use to get it all done would be veyr appreciated!
I actually tried some of flylady's advice, and it worked pretty well. I got a lot more done in 45 minutes then 1 thought i could.
I guess I need to work on letting it go, but it's not that easy. I'm not a neat freak, but when the house starts to smell, and you can't walk through the living room, it gets to me.
My DH is a lost cause. Once before the baby, I went on strike without saying anything, just stopped cleaning completely, just did my laundry, etc. A whole month went by, and Dh had not said one word or done anything at all. I finally had a meltdown, and then he seemed to get it. Eventually it went right back to the way it always is.
I think I'll make a chore list, and assign him duties on a weekly basis. We'll see if it works.View Thread
It was the day we brought DD home from the hospital. We had had a ton of visitors and after they left DH got in the tub to relax. I took the baby in there and sat on the toilet to talk to DH for a while. Well, the baby decided to make a very loud poop! We both laughed a bit and when I got up to change her, Dh shouts " there's poop on you!" I look down and sure enough theres runny brown poop all over my shirt and pants! I went running into the baby's room layed her on the changing table and promptly stripped off my clothes, while Dh laughed his butt off.
It's okay though, because the next day she peed all over him after her bath. He was so grossed out that he actually took a shower.View Thread
