Our children are soon to be 20 months and I have chosen to continue to BF my daughter until at least 2 years old. She is very demanding which is a challenge. Are there any other mothers who have…Continue

How's walking going?

How is your little one doing with walking?  My kids are always pretty slow at it- usually they don't walk until closer to 18 months!  How is your kiddo coming along? Continue

Hi Lilady,

Welcome!  Sounds like you have a wonderful family!  That is so neat you were able to have another little one 20 years later- and that your daughters are enjoying their little brother!

Hi everyone, I'm Karen. Roscoe (Bear) was born on Easter, 4/20/14 by emergency c-section. We had previously scheduled a c-section due to his large size, but my water broke at 37 weeks 5 days. Arriving at the hospital, the doctor on duty decided that I should "try" to go naturally; regardless of my doctor's recommendations. Roscoe had other plans. Within 3 hours of arriving at the hospital, Roscoe made it clear, he was ready. Thankfully, Roscoe was born weighing 7 pounds, 13 ounces and was 20.5 inches long. A very normal size baby. I am dedicated to breastfeeding Roscoe for the first year. I am following the doctors' recommendations for solids, as well. Within a month of birth, we realized that Roscoe has severe eczema. Deleting dairy from my diet has helped, but there is no one cure. He's been off the chart for height since his 1 month check up and his weight is now in the 90th percentile. (His head too, hehehe) He's a big and healthy little boy. His first tooth erupted on 2/2 and his second erupted on 2/18. Thankfully, they have not interfered with breastfeeding. Neither he, nor I, am ready to stop. Currently, he his 31 inches, and 24.5 pounds. He's working on crawling. He doesn't have a lot of interest in crawling, as he's found he can roll just about anywhere he needs to go. I'm just so thankful that he's healthy.
Additionally, I have twin 21 year old daughters. Having a baby 20 years apart from my girls, has been extremely gratifying. My daughters are juniors in college, and they love their little brother. I have found a total and consuming love for motherhood all over again.

Hi Ashleigh,

Welcome and congrats on your little Brielle!  So glad to hear that your little one is doing well! 

Comment by FamilyValues14 on January 20, 2015 at 10:29pm

Hi everybody. My name is Ashleigh and m baby Brielle was born 4/5 weighing 4lbs, 8oz at 36 weeks. We did IVF to get pregnant. It was a long journey, but it was worth it and she's here and healthy!!!

She probably just needs mommy to soothe her. That's your job after all. Babies aren't capable of soothing themselves. And letting her cry like that is damaging. UNT did a study in 2012 regarding that and found that babies are incapable of self soothing. They just learn their cries won't be answered.

Sounds like she isn't very hungry when she wakes if she doesn't finish the bottle- that's so rough to have a little one getting up still! Maybe when she wakes up, pick her up to settle her, then lie her back down and try not giving her the bottle? Each night as you get her, make the time you hold her to settle her shorter and shorter- then she kinda gets weaned off the idea that she should get up.

Thank you Amber, unfortunately I am unable to put her in her own room at this time. But we have thought about loving her or ourselfs to the front room. Not sure if that will help. Yes she is on solids and eats well then I give her a bottle with rice cereal in it as well right before bed. Most of the time she falls asleep while eating and doesn't finish the bottle no matter what I do to wake her.

Hi Lauren! Congratulations on your little Kara! It can be normal for a 6 or 7 month old to still wake up sometimes- but it sure can be hard! Are you able to move her into her own room? I found that when I moved the kids into their own room, they started sleeping through the night way better! That might be worth a try if you can/are comfortable with it. Have you started solids with her? If not, you might try starting a little at night to see if that helps keep her tummy full.

Comment by Lauren Vasquez on November 19, 2014 at 12:49am
Hello I'm Lauren And my little Kara was born April 22. Weighing in at 5lbs 2oz at 37weeks. She is such a wonder already sitting by herself and doesn't want to be on her tummy but standing trying to take steps. Hardest thing right now is she still wakes up in the middle of the night for a bottle. Anyone else have this issue? If not any ideas how to break it. She gets so mad and screams at the too of her lungs if I leave her for to long. which is hard since she is still in our room.

Thanks moms excited to be part of the group!!
