I hate this. My MIL is similar. You have to repeatedly inform them that you've already consulted with dc's pediatrician (even if you haven't), and that you're following their medical advice. If they still won't let up (or, if she's like my MIL, she takes the stance that dc's ped must be a moron), tell them to call their own physician to get a second opinion on how to treat a cold.

I have a Postcard and I quite like it because it's warm but not bulky at all. It's probably not quite as warm as a Canada Goose, but on the other hand it is much slimmer fitting. I don't like feeling like I'm wearing a sleeping bag. I live in NYC and the Postcard is my main winter coat. [ Reply | More ]

Tell him to leave you out of it. I think that is what my kids' stepmom did. It is kind of too bad because she used to get him to be reasonable, but I think for her own sake she just decided to remove herself from the situation. Smart, but means he is bringing the crazy to a whole new level. [ Reply | More ]

Wha's the issue with your stomach? Is it actual fat, or weak muscles, or are you prone to bloating? [ Reply | More ]

I have abs and it's flat when I've not eaten. Put a sandwich in there and I look like I'm 3 months along. Put a sandwich, fries and a shake in there and I'm ready to give birth. [ Reply | More ]

Height and current weight? Small frame or regular? Does it make any difference what type of food you eat,or just theamount? I ask because certain foods make me bloat like mad. [ Reply | More ]

I am the same. Issue is weak abs and constipation. You need to do lower ab work and deep ab work and make sure you eat a motherload of veggies each day to keep your digestive system functioning optimally. I go from perfectly flat stomach to 5 months pregnant after eating unless I pay attention to fiber in my diet. Also, some foods make me bloat more than others. [ Reply | More ]
