[ - ] when can you put a db in an exersaucer? I got one from a neighbor and wondering if it is okay for a 4.5 month old that can't sit up on his own yet? Since it was a hand-me-down it doesn't come with instructions. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You can try...if DB can hold his head up he may be okay for short periods of time. We started using it at about that age. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I figured out how to lose weight. I stopped eating dinner. I eat a big breakfast, decent lunch and that's it. Dh and I are separated and when I get home to two kids I dont have time to eat anyway, so busy cooking for kids, bathing, bath. By the time they are in bed it's 9 and I'm not hungry and just want to BE. Anyone else skip dinner? I do wake up starving though. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Yep. That works for me. I don't always skip dinner, but it is never a fulll meal deal. I eat breakfast, lunch and 4-5 pm snack. Then I generally graze on primarily proteins before 8 PM. I also try to work out at least 5 times a week. [ Reply | More ]

btdt, totally healthy 1.5 y/o. in my case, the bleeding was from blood clots that had formed in spots where placenta and uterus (i might be getting the parts wrong) were not fully attached. some people have more severe instances where they cannot be active, or have to be on bed rest. i exercised throughout pg. just chilled out during tri #1, though. if you're having light spotting (as opposed to period-heavy spotting), could be totally fine.

[ - ] BF/Pumping moms: Need your advice. DB is almost 11 months old. I have been pumping 2 bottles since I went back to work when she was 5mo. About a month ago my supply went way down--I can still bf at night and am but when I pump I get about 2-4 ounces. And that is two pumping sessions. Should I just bag it? She is eating tons of regular food. I had set a goal of pumping until she was 1 but I think it's getting silly. Am worried about supply tho; will I still be able to nurse her in am and pm? Should I keep pumping for two more months? What have others done in similar sitch? tia. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
