    I've only gotten positive comments on my daughter's name, either that it's pretty, they like that I've chosen a "real" name, or "oh, that name's coming back in popularity!"

    The other names I like...

    My SO wants to move on to TTC, but I'm too scared. Because if we're NT/NP, and it doesn't work, there's always the idea we just aren't timing things right or can try harder. If we're actually TTC,...

    About two weeks before we started we introduced a lovey and started a more set routine, we always use a fan for white noise but you could maybe get a machine or play a cd on repeat, etc, so when he...

    It's not common, and I haven't heard of any big outbreaks recently. I wouldn't worry too much, obviously don't go hanging around someone who has rubella, but I think it's unlikely you'd just catch it...

    I wanted to update - my daughter started sleeping fully through the night and napping on a schedule after 5 or 6 days of using The Sleep Lady techniques. I'm very pleased as my research has shown me...

    I'm no expert, but from what I've found out through some research and some heresay, is that tearing definitely heals faster and less painfully, and that episiotomies are become a fairly outdated and...

    Well, then it sucks that your MIL is going to miss the fun of the baby shower ;)

    Tell her you hope she can make it, but if she can't respect your choice for YOUR child, that's too bad. And if she...

    The day before I first saw Lillian crawl, she was napping on my bed (with a railing) and I stepped out of the room to pee. Of course she woke up and crawled for the first time in the tiny space...

    The toddler thread!

    Lots of moms here have toddlers, so what are they all up to?

    Here's a thread to ask for toddler advice, share tips, accomplishments, questions, and all things toddler!

    I'm a bit relieved so many moms did this. Mine did as well, and I was so angry she was being selfish and disrespectful, but I guess it's just tough for excited grandmas to keep their lips sealed.

    My answer: I want 3 or 4 children, my SO wants 2 (but says he'd be willing for 3 depending on how things are after the 2nd). I'm secretly hoping we'll try for 3 and the last will be (very easygoing)...
  12. Do or did you and your SO want the same # of children?

    Just what the title says: do or did you and your partner want the same sized family? If not, how did (or will) you compromise?

    Did the number change once you started having children??
  13. It also depends not just on a parent's love of...

    It also depends not just on a parent's love of kids and finances and time, but the kind of home environment they're comfortable in!

    If parents like a quiet, serene, environment, having 4 kids...

    I personally don't believe in crying it out - what you're referring to is controlled crying, the Ferber method, and I definitely think 5 weeks is too young for that (they recommend waiting til 6...

    I figure some of you may have wanted an update: I did get my period, and was not pregnant last month.

    My SO did find another job right away, so we seem to be nt/np again, but I'm a bit nervous....
  16. Your son is very young to start cutting out...

    Your son is very young to start cutting out nighttime feedings! What I would do is try to soothe him back to sleep without a bottle (patting/rocking and the paci) but if he continues fussing/crying,...

    Family certainly often think that, since they're family, it's acceptable for them to voice rude opinions (FYI, it's not).

    It sounds like these people were surprised by your news and didn't have...

    I agree with everyone else! This sounds like the best time for YOU to have a shower, I wouldn't worry about when others typically have them!

    It is normal, but you could call your dr just for reassurance if you're nervous. Pregnancy has all kinds of weird symptoms...my rule was if it was equal in painful ness to menstrual cramp pain or it...

    I don't think you are naive to think you can give birth without an epidural. Tons of women have been doing it for centuries.

    I do think it's a bit naive to say you won't even consider it. You...

    We started not trying/not preventing this month. But then SO lost his job. So we decided to wait until the future is more certain. And now my period is late.

    I'll test soon, but I'm not sure what...

    I flew with my daughter at 6 weeks old, before she had any shots. I got the sling unfortunately right when we got back from our trip, but from 7 weeks til about 4 months I used it every day, my...

    I don't fake tan, spray or otherwise. I have a medium tone skin, it's pretty pale in winter and I get tan quickly with little sun exposure. I wouldn't personally want to adjust my skin tone with...

    If you loved being surprised the first time, I would opt for that again. I think in the excitement of the birth you'd forget any minor hopes for a girl (but I think if you are really hoping for a...
