    I have two sons, a four year old and a two month old. It's hard to say about ideally. I was perfectly happy with just one. Now I am perfectly happy with two. More kids would be great, but I'm also...

    It does sound like they are being passive aggressive about this. You gave them a good nickname option to use if they really can't pronounce it and they aren't using it.

    But then, I don't know...

    @maryfiona
    It is so wonderful that you were able to get your daughter the help she needs. My brother has similar disorders that went undiagnosed until adulthood. I can only imagine how much better...

    We adopted our first son, so we were not actually expecting to get to name him. His birth mom asked us to, though. So we came up with a list, in case she hated our top pick. But she really liked it....

    If you are in the US, I would first suggest looking into your insurance coverage. What does your policy cover? What testing do they cover? What will your copays be?

    I would buy nothing at all at this point. Here is why:

    1) as soon as you get pregnant, people will start offering you hand me downs. Maybe you are thinking, well shoot. None of our friends have...

    I wasn't stressed out about our first son's name (Levin Silas) bc we choose it many years before he was born. We did argue a lot about which should be his first name and which should be his middle...

    @jackal 40% sounds high- but I am assuming that's not just for health care, right? I'm not positive, but I think it's likely that if you add up our tax rate plus the amount we spend on health care,...

    @oiseau I'm glad you were able to get on Medicaid for the birth! I've talked to a lot of people who were surprised they qualified for pregnancy Medicaid, so I think it's always worth checking.

    It doesn't matter if he promised his friend. If you are not comfortable with her, she should not potentially be the guardian of your child. The same thing goes on his side. If he is not comfortable...

    Yeah, that is ridiculous. You shouldn't have to even cover up, much less leave the room. I think it's great for kids to learn about breastfeeding as a normal way to feed a baby. The kids probably...
